The main character is one-dimensional and the supporting cast are all C-list players. There's just...nothing compelling there, that I can discern.
That is exactly how I felt in a nutshell. I kept asking myself "Why am I watching this when I could be watching an old episode of Simon & Simon?"

P.S. The appeal of the show Terriers escaped me as well, although I ended up watching all 13 episodes.
