I watch a lot of television crime dramas. The very nature of television series and crime dramas tends to push these things to similar formulas. One of the classic character tropes in crime dramas that feature police as their main characters is to have one be perfectly straight-laced and by the books and another to be a wild card, willing to do what it takes to solve the case even if that means bending the rules.
Blood on the Tracks is as formulaic as it gets (at least according to my review, as I really don’t remember anything about it), but apparently, it works. And that’s the thing about a good formula, you can make it work pretty easily, especially if you have good actors.
