    Nothing surprising here, but also nothing great or offensive here. Did not originally know this was from the same team that brought us Castle, but recognized the similarities right away. Rachel Bilson gets by on her looks and Eddie Cibrian is just a bit past his prime (spent as a supporting actor in a lot of whodunnits) so falls into the “grizzled veteran PI” mode.

Since this is a basically a Castle reboot, expect to see these characters deny and attempt to ignore the obvious sexual tension built into the premise, then succumb to it if the series lasts long enough.

    Not the worst thing on summer TV, but far from the best.

    [Take Two] goes beyond light mystery to the realm of weightlessness. [25 Jun - 8 Jul 2018, p.11]

    Created by the producers of "Castle" -- and conceptually just birthed from its rib -- Take Two is the slightest of crime procedurals, one that will live or die on the appeal of its stars. Fortunately, they're both adorable, which might not be enough to sustain an ABC series that might as well have been titled "Castle 2."

    Take Two is a lighter proposition than "Castle" eventually became--but Bilson and Cibrian are airier presences than their predecessors, and a lack of gravitas suits them. ... Take Two promises to be just that sort of enjoyable show, and if it brings nothing new to the table, that is the meal we have come for. To make too great claims for it would be in a way to insult its not-untasty flavor.
