APB - Daddy's Home - Review: Rich People's Daddy Issues



And that is a wrap on APB's first half. We officially crossed the half past mark on APB's freshman season and it was the perfect opportunity to introduce Gideon's dad, Jo (played by John Heard). Daddy's Home was directed by Darnell Martin and written by Ingrid Escajeda.

I have to say this was one hilarious episode. The dynamic between Gideon and Joe was so perfect, the push and pulls were so great. The writing and execution were so on point as Justin Kirk and John Heard was a perfect on-screen pairing. Justin was a shining star, him being opposed working with his dad and the mini-tantrums he threw throughout the outing were just hilarious. Also using Teresa as a buffer was a great choice. Joe's introduction really enhanced the whole experience ad brought the show out of its slightly depressing mode and turned it into one hilarious outing.

Overall the whole plot revolved about Joe stealing from Gideon after he promised he would help take out a really bad guy, a crime lord by the name of Leo Battaglia. Gideon and Pete really had to put up their major league A game to track Leo so they could bust him and Joe during the transaction of 500K. I really would love to have a mini-drone as well. Would make my life way easier.

The chase lead Murphy and the team to a Zoo, where Joe and Gideon spent time during Gideon's childhood. Joe is a master manipulator and the way he worked Leo around his finger was just exceptional. Great work from John and the writers who created such an amazing and captivating scene. The good guys got the crime lord but Joe escaped. This whole story served as a great tool to strengthen the bond between Gideon and the others, especially him and Teresa. They are really captivating on screen and I don't see them as a romantic couple but really great friends.

The episode ended with Joe reaching out to Gideon and telling that despite everything he still loves his son. Joe is a complicated and messed up character but that makes him real ad more enjoyable to watch on screen. I hope we've going to see Joe once more before the season ends.


The side story involving Goss and Brandt hunting a car thief was another gem. They are really a great and entertaining pairing and this type of silly stories really work greatly. It was a nice move to play against Brandt's ego and watch the station make fun of him. His alpha male attitude didn't handle it well. It was nice to see The Messengers Joel Courtney back on my screen. He played Luke, a kid with a mental disability and huge love for cars. Luke was stealing cars from people who weren't taking good care of them. Joel put up an impressive and heartwarming performance. Goss recommended Luke for a job at the CPD and delivered a great ending to a surprisingly emotional story.

Did you feel entertained by Daddy's Home? I certainly was. As always feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section and be certain to tune in tonight at 9/8 central for a new episode of APB.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
