Synopsis
This is the story of two cops. One doesn't care about getting promoted and wants to be like an American cop. His arrest record is high-95%, but he has to file a report for just about the same amount of cases because of the way he makes arrests. The other is a clean and cool cop that does everything by the book. The next chapter in this rookie's book is all but written.

These two very different personalities are assigned to work as partners on everyday, run-of-the-mill cases. At first, everyone thinks that they will never be able to work together. But they prove everyone completely wrong, as they go on to solve one case after the other on the streets of Tokyo.

This delightful story of two detectives makes its way into the Fuji Television fall line-up. Like the fast-paced Miami Vice and Beverly Hills Cops, "Double Score" promises to pioneer an all new genre of detective story!

1. not so 'DOUBLE' [Rating: 9/10]
the story is very good,no doubt about that.it is full of action and very fast-paced.the fighting scene is very real and well coreographed.must also give the credit to the actors coz they all did a very good job in potraying the hardworking,tough and dedicative but at the same time, sentimental policemen and policewomen.however, i don't really like the fact that this story revolves more around takashi than it is around the cute oshio-chan.the title is 'DOUBLE score' but it is not so double after all.Oshio-chan is waaaayy cuter and waaaayy hotter than takashi XD I like his character as the cool+collective Kawamura Etsuro.Obviously,we can always expect wonderful performances from him

beautiful friendship.it goes along with the theme song which is 'it takes two'.a drama full of humour.sorimachi was very comical in da drama and he's always been a great actor in each drama and this is not da first.co-star oshio manabu is great in diz drama.i[and the other students in my college] got hooked up wif this drama even though i was in the exam season when da drama was aired.it's a must watch even tho da ending is quite disappointing and unexpected..

3. Amazing & Interesting [Rating: 9/10]
I don't know why, even this drama is far from romance but I think it's really good drama and worth watching. Oshio is so cool (he is not handsome but his style is really cool), as usual (GTO) Takashi always become a wild guy and they both made a good combination. This drama tell about crimes but they made it as a comedy too.

I hope they can make the sequel.

A cool, impulsive, impatient cop - Sorimachi
A smart, think-twice b4 acting cop - Manabu

Great chemistry between them. Seeing them catching crimimals togther is a great adventure! Sudo Risa (Hattori Mika), who act as a cool cop with great leadership skills.

Great show not to be missed!

This show benefits from the great chemistry between the characters and Sorimachi's remarkable acting skills.
The story revolves around a troublemaker cop and his temporary trainee, a young, soon-to-be superior officer who completes his final three months of training by joining a regular police department.
As the story unfolds, we learn more about every character (even though I have to admit that having someone like Sorimachi's character as a subordinate would be my death. He's taking too much and too many risks, often acts impulsive and in the act endangers not only his colleagues but also ruins the one or other long-planned mission). The cases they solve are mostly light-weight, but there's enough space to throw in the one or other deeper conversation.
2. Comments by donna8157 [Rating: 7/10]
It's a good series, but nothing more than that. Sorimachi Takeshi and Oshio Manabu do a good job of teaming up and working together for this series. I liked the different portrayals of each officer and their way of approaching problems. The crimes that they had to solve were rather shallow, but the acting made up for it. However, while watching this I couldn't help but think that this was GTO but as a police officer.

The stories in the series itself sometimes last around 2-3 episodes. Another good series to watch off and on and isn't too addicting.
3. Comments by zealous [Rating: 9/10]
veryy good acting from both "police". anyway... is that real we can get a cop just like Tachibana..???? hehehe i don't think so.. but combination from both side (sorimachi & Oshio) is great... i ean they can how us the diffrent side of thinking for try to solve a case... 1 always do what ever he thinks is got to do- without thinking at first..... + emotional.. and 1 is always think about the theory that he learn before.... hehhe... but i enjoy this dorama. ;)
4. Comments by minochi99 [Rating: 6/10]
Slightly above average. One of Sorimachi's weaker dramas. I watched it and didn't regret it. But let's say that it wouldn't kill me if I didn't watch it again. Just missing too much I think. Not enough comedy, not enough action, and no romantic interludes at all. What am I trying to say? No cute kawaii girls at all. And that's a must for me. Sorry :-)
5. Comments by Tiffany [Rating: 6/10]
To tell the truth, I didn't fall in love with this drama instantly, but rather, it [very slowly] grew on me. It can get pretty funny at times, which is surprising for such a serious subject. Overall, I felt the series to be interesting, but is more of a guy's series than one for female viewers. I think my father enjoyed it far more than I did!

The phase of the 2 first cds are quite slow..only until the 3rd cd did the story catch my interest. Sorimachi's role in this drama (fortunately) did not dissapoint me and I really like Oshio Manabu's role. New guy in the force and trying to look cool...very macho in a quiet way. But it was dissapointing for the remaining cast...
8. Comments by plenar [Rating: ?/10]
thought this one would be boring, but no, it turned out pretty interesting cos sorimachi played mostly against type. a good supporting cast, and sorimachi seems to have grown comfortably into his manhood and no longer looks like he's been chewed up and spat out by the family dog. decent chemistry between the two leads. mldesu

10. Comments by Hoshi [Rating: 7/10]
Not too bad. The chemistry between the two guys is there. Sorimachi's great as always (although not as wacky as his GTO character here) being that police-officer-who-doesn't-follow-the-rules, and Oshio Manabu's good too as his scholarly rookie partner. But the ending was kinda disappointing :(
11. Comments by Zie75 [Rating: 10/10]
i like the combination of active n undispinary senior with nerd young police guy which turn out to be excellent performance both actor. For sorimachi no doubt but for Oshio this is the best act he ever done (the rest of his dorama a bit stone except haruranman coz i didn't watch it yet)
12. Comments by WD [Rating: 8/10]
I totally love Takashi Sorimachi in this one! Manabu Oshio did a good job as well. Although the cases are pretty ordinary, but the chemistry between all the actors made up for it. Sorimachi and Oshio as Tachibana and Kawamura really had it going as partners!
13. Comments by vuuduugrrl [Rating: 10/10]
In the classic tradition of "odd-couples" you have a LAPD wannbe gun-slinger and his straight-laced partner. Their non-traditional methods of law enforment have a tendency to cause them an unnecessarily high volume of paperwork, but they look cool doing it!
14. Comments by arashinokoto [Rating: 8/10]
this 8 is for oshio manabu, who looks great in the drama.. the stories are rather common for a police drama.. and the ending not superb.. especially love the episode where kitajima's gun was stolen.. that was touching and unique.. sorimachi was funny too..
15. Comments by AngelXing [Rating: 8/10]
Firstly, we all know how well Sorimachi suits rolls like these but Oshio Manabu's part was really really amazing. He pulled it off easily, making the entire series watchable...there are some parts which would make you totally laugh your head off though...
16. Comments by jade_frost [Rating: 7/10]
Formulaic but entertaining. Good chemistry between the Oshio & Sorimachi, plot wasn't too original though, renegade vs stickler for rules has been rehashed in many forms and played to death. Thought Odoru was much better in the league of police dramas.
17. Comments by jdfan [Rating: 7/10]
If you like American TV cop show, you will like this one. This is a Japanese version of action packed cop show. Lots of gun shots and fighting scenes.... Oshio Manabu, SudoRisa, Sorimachi Takashi they all did a good job.

For the first CD I thing is a great and funny drama to watch

it's ok... but i dont like the idea of one story per episode kind of thing.... and this drama is one story per episode.. come on!!! you guys are not in hollywood where you have 24 episode per season!!!!
20. Comments by Mink [Rating: 4/10]
The only thing that makes this work is the duo pairing of Sorimachi Takashi and Oshio Manabu [the latter as the subdued yet by-the-book cool rookie is a decent role for him to flesh out, too]...
21. Comments by juliana_phang [Rating: 8/10]
not bad...
pretty hilarious..
esp oshio manabu who tries to imitate sorimachi takashi
=)
but overall..
all the investigations r predictable..
not much excitement there

this show reminds me of Hero. they're rather similar except that there was no violence in Hero. if not it's about using the out-of-expected methods to solve crimes.

Saw the first episode ONLY and its a TYPICAL Takashi Sorimachi movie where he's the guy who acts all cool but really, ppl look down on him... blah blah blah...

Kind of a japanese Beverly Hills Cop without the witty dialouge. Not totally crap, but pretty darn close. Not recommended.

Not bad for a cop dorama, the chemistry between the 2 lead are great but I doubt that police act like that in real life
