    Boring show. Better show is Magic City.

    I like it but I'm angry they didn't say who the killer was at the end of the first season. It is kind of slow--I'll have to try MC.

    The reviews say Season 2 is good.

    I'm gonna watch, but real late tonight.

    At 11 pm, I'm gonna start watching Mad Men, Game of Thrones and 2 hours of The Killing.

    There's too much TV to watch.

    I wish I could start earlier, but I got too much work to do.

    I'm waiting to see if Jon Hein recommends it since he is the TV expert and got 80 blowjobs.

    What channel is it on?
    For the last couple of months I've watched Homeland, The Wire, Dexter and now Breaking Bad. Is it on that level?

    I like it. Reviews have been mixed because the season 1 finale angered a lot of fans. I think the writing and acting is great but some have complained it's slow. I think the best way to watch it would be marathon because then you can really get into the mystery/plot and just bang them out.

    Good writing.
    Good performances.
    Interesting story.

    Good show.....well worth the watch......but it would be highly suggested to start back with Season One to be all
    caught up with what has gone on and with what is going on.

    It's the kind of show that could make many angry.
    ...but I say to F it and to suck it up....put all of that type of stuff aside and just get into it and enjoy the performances and the writing/story
    as it moves along.

    Do they play games....YES!....but so what...it's all still pretty awesome...so deal with it and move on enjoying everything else
    that there is to enjoy in the show.


    ..and besides....everyone already knows that the detective's son is the real killer. ;) (...just kidding....well...maybe...who knows. ;) )

    its good but I get all mixed up in between shows..I mean the father beat that dreadlock teacher and the girl was a different girl last season now it starts off all who knows where..I turned it off last night cause I thought I missed an episode. I guess I'll try to plunge thru it and see if I get back into it.

    Yeah, I'm confused as hell, too. I watched the first 45 minutes, and I have no idea what's going.[

    Is she pissed at her partner?

    Was her partner involved in the crime?

    Who was that guy the partner was with?

    And why is her partner dating Olivia Munn in real life? What does she see in him?

    http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/Entertainment/20120327/olivia-munn-joel-kinnaman-dating-120327/

    The problem is that an episode of Game of Thrones and Mad Men, which I couldn't get to until 12:30 am wass just too much (I also have to read TV critic's analysis of both shows, which is time consuming.)

    And then AMC throws a 2-hour premiere at us? Fucking hell. It's way too much.

    I gotta get to sleep.

    It's on AMC, the same network as Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.


    About the show:
    I was mainly drawn to it because I'm a HUUUUUGE Michelle Forbes fan.

    (Nerd trivia: Three actors from Battlestar Galactica are on the show: Admiral Helena Cain [Michelle Forbes], Karl "Helo" Agathon [Tahmoh Penikett] and Cylon #2, Leoben Conoy [Callum Keith Rennie])

    I like the show, but fast-forward through any of the dialogue regarding the politics on the show. Bores. the. fucking. piss. out. of. me.

    I like the lead character, Sara, and I like that she's multi-dimensional, flawed. She's not the hot-shot, do-no-wrong cop. I mean, she's good as a cop but a TERRIBLE mother. :jj:

    Rosie Larsen's father needs to have his bail revoked. WORST. FATHER. EVER. :jj:

    Belco was/is a nutjob. My guess is that (speculation/spoiler)
    the Mayor set up Darren Richmond, along with Holder's NA sponsor
    .

    We'll see.
