Lethal Weapon Sneak Peek: Is Riggs a 'Sand Hobo'? Murtaugh Sure Thinks So

Martin Riggs, before you get all up in arms about your partner calling you a “sand hobo” in this exclusive Lethal Weapon sneak peek, let’s review the evidence:

* You live in a junk-filled trailer on the beach

* You once woke up, naked and likely hungover, covered in seaweed and, well, sand

The clip above, from Wednesday’s episode (Fox, 8/7c), finds the series’ central pair bickering — shocker! — at the station while considering whether or not to take on a robbery case that’s tied to Murtaugh’s neighborhood. The elder cop’s main argument: Riggs’ closest neighbors are seals, and therefore he has no idea of what it means to be part of a community.

Meanwhile, Richard Cabral’s Cruz (whom we met last week) starts officially working with the team, Murtaugh’s son has a friend who might be bad news, and an online search for “Black Hulk” proves unexpectedly successful.

Press PLAY on the video above to watch Riggs and Murtaugh do what they do best.

    I’m torn about this show to be honest.
    On one hand, both characters stray away a lot from the movie originals (Glover’s Murtaugh was way older and more tired, Gibson’s Riggs was cooler and less jolly).
    On the other hand…..that should be OK. There’s no law that says everything has to be exactly the same, and some things are OK to change.
    But still, the original characters are SO iconic, that it’s difficult to see them like this without constantly comparing. And that’s taking away a little of the viewing fun. Because that’s what this show should be I guess — just escapism, mindless viewing fun that doesn’t require all too much thinking…..
    Having said that, both actors do a fine job. I’ll stick around for now.

    The Murtaugh guy is excellent as is his family, the Riggs guy is too over the top and exaggerated in bad manners and smelly appearance. Clean him up, settle him down and the show could succeed. In other words, he needs more character and less slapstick.

    To Be Very Honest, I Prefer The Series to The Movie.

    Im actually growing to love this show. While the case of the week can be a bit predictable, I love the chemistry between Wayans and Crawford.

    Really? Theyve gone and taken cheddar and given it a whole new meaning! Riggs? Murtaugh?! I dont think so! Is the character change okay? I sure youd think it is if youre the one whos writing it! Those two characters are two iconic! Why the reboot?! Are they that desperate they have to reboot everything and typically ruin every single movie I grew with as a kid? Its like changing a religion around. You make up the rules as you go. Its heresy! o.O My stepdad would be appalled if he were alive today to see what they did to Star Trek, Nightmare on Elm Street and now they think they can turn they movies into tv shows. They tore apart 12 Monkeys and their doing it over again. Another total Recall. Why cant the writers actually WRITE?! Nothing like going over somebody elses paint with a different color of paint! I wont be watching because youve ruined it! The worlds ending and its all because of bad tv shows! =D
