The Good: The all-star cast, led by Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis, turn in fine (if sometimes melodramatic) work. In particular, Chiklis' mob boss Vincent Savino is so charismatic it's hard to root against his dreams of ruling Las Vegas.
The Bad: The show thus far hasn't really tapped into the hedonistic potential of its "Vegas-before-it-was-Vegas" setting. Plus: CBS seems unwilling to gamble on these characters, continually squeezing them into case-of-the-week stories that are often paint-by-numbers.
