Clearly the directors and writing staff could make a damn good action-thriller show if they wanted to, but it also seems like WB/CW shows have to come with a "pretty white people with problems" subplot all the time. The fact that so many of the episodes have turned away from the action-thriller aspects to peak in on Laurel and Tommy on a date that has nothing to do with anything going on in the story other than these 2 people have socialized with Ollie at one point or another totally lags the show down.
