Average comedy/detective show
15 December 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

Young Terry has no relationship with his father and is heading down a life of crime, when the death of aforementioned father makes him rethink his lifestyle and become a young detective that goes around solving crimes. It all makes for an average show, that starts well, but dissolves like a sugar lump in water.

The show consists of six very short (around 20 minutes) episodes, that cover four different stories. The first two, that tell the raise of detective Terry are fun. The production shows its limitations, and the humor is a little bit juvenile, but it is tongue-in-cheek enough and doesn't take itself too seriously. And it sets the characters' relationships in a good enough manner.

Sadly, there has been very little effort put into the other four episodes. The plot is lame, the characters' arc close to nothing, Terry just goes around googling at girls, and there is a strange 'simplistic' understanding of European cultures (French are very Frrrenjsh and people from the East Europe are thieves and do cheap rapping). And if the humor was childish but fresh enough in the first two episodes, it devolves into just poor juvenile, only occasionally making the viewer smile.

"Terry Teo" could be worse. But it could have been way better. Not good enough.
