Underutilization? Check the credits, reviewer. MC is part of the creative team and one of the bosses. If he's being poorly used, which he's not IMO, he can fix the situation. Reviewer needs to get a bit more research practice before writing anything.

I disagree with the writer's opinion on this one. I've watched it and enjoyed it...and I wasn't in the least confused about the title expecting it to be something else.

I forgot to add- i read an interview of the real Sheriff Lamb-he's in his 80's now-18 years sheriff, beat the tar out of any mobster that crossed him.
The mob actually feared him. I cant wait to see this show!

I read 2 reviews that said this will be one of the best shows of the season. Chiklis and Quade have good chemistry.
Cant wait til the show airs!

First of all, unlike most Vegas Dramas this is more about the Sheriff not the mob. This is why Chicklis is underutilized. I have watched both the old Vegas and Las Vegas and only a Moron would be confused after the first few Seconds. Don't pay for the grave diggers yet.

There is a lot wrong with CBS' new drama "Vegas," but let's start with the title. Half of the people who bother to tune in are going to be confused by the name. They will undoubtedly think the new series is a remake of either Robert Urich's "Vegas," which ran on ABC from 1978-81, or they're going to mistake it for a remake of James Caan's "Las Vegas." That one aired on NBC from 2003-08. It's neither. Instead, this "Vegas" sluggishly takes us back to the 1960s just as the gangsters took over. Dennis Quaid stars as Ralph Lamb, a sheriff determined to keep order by any means necessary. And Michael Chiklis stars as Vincent Savino, a mobster who wants Lamb to take a hike. Unfortunately, viewers will want "Vegas" to take a hike after they realize it's not a remake, the dialogue is stale and -- worst yet -- Chiklis is underutilized.
"Vegas" premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
