Allen were originally an officer that sat behind a desk, filling out paperwork. Terry was an officer that made a mistake in the line of duty. together they were forced into a team to take down a shady capitalist named David. at the same time, they had to tolerate each others' differences while putting their lives at stake.
between the 2 guys, it was difficult to like Allen as much as Terry. Terry had a rough edge to him that made him relatable, while Allen was a clown. the story itself was more of a comedy than taking down dangerous criminals. there were add-ins of unless bits of backdrop that probably was trying to make Allen into a better package but still failed miserably. we had a difficult time appreciating his acting than Terry's hidden ability to dance, which turned out to be an impressive surprise.
