Inspired by true events, Graceland is a refreshing cop show that brings multiple units – the FBI, DEA, and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement – together.
Right after finishing training at Quantico, FBI agent Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit) is sent to join the “Graceland” crew in their Long Beach residence. He starts working as an undercover agent investigating a rising warlord (Gbenga Akinnagbe), while he’s also secretly investigating his housemate, FBI agent Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata).
There are many storylines to follow in this show as each agent in the house focuses on their own projects, while helping others on the side. Sometimes this unfortunately makes the show hard to follow.
Tveit is exceptional in the lead role and plays his rookie character with true innocence, while Sunjata keeps you guessing on his next move.
Final say: Sometimes slow, but ultimately nerve-wracking. ★★★☆☆
