"Terriers" (FX, 10 tonight) was created and executive produced by Ted Griffin, the man who wrote "Ocean's Eleven," and executive produced by Shawn Ryan, the man who created and produced "The Shield."
I mention that upfront because in just two episodes you can tell "Terriers" is a perfect mix of what you'd expect of those two men. It has snappy, funny, realistic, salty dialogue. It has some grittiness, focusing on two damaged anti-heroes, and you root for them. The world they inhabit is corrupt, but deceptively sunny and bright. And it's packed with great characters.
