Doing a straightforward murder mystery show but with comedy characters isn't a bad idea, but the two halves don't fit. The prestige drama side is well done and atmospheric, but then there are these fuckwit comedy characters walking around that belong in a shit 90s sitcom and Eddie is way more painful than she needed to be if the idea was to be a contrast to the other (much better) cop. There's a few interesting ideas in there - by the end of the third episode they seem to have staked out what the murders are "about", which won't come as a huge surprise to anyone paying attention to Get Krack!n - but it almost feels like they wanted to make a straight diatribe and the comedy was just thrown in there in a half-hearted fashion. But I guess if it does even moderately well they'll be able to forge a career writing prestige mystery series, which is a lot more lucrative than maybe getting an Australian comedy series every five years
