    He's tall, and it helps. I agree with that.

    I had similar problem, I admire Rusty and so the 1 season. Fortunately the second season is the new, completely different story and that’s enough to not influence what you think about the first.

    -Man of any size lays hands on me, he's gonna bleed out in under a minute.
    -Well, just so you know, I support feminism. Mostly by having body image issues.



    I like the progress of action. The music, atmosphere. The way we see investigation from the very beginning with the politics included. 2 episode made me enthusiastic about the rest of the season.

    The end? I haven’t seen it coming.

    He also fits that "I'm a self-made business man millionaire but somewhat cowardly in that I employ the efforts of my nefarious past in the underground to level the playing field against billionairs." He plays the role of little rich guy vs. big rich guy perfectly with his garrulous fast talking yet somewhat off voice.

    He is the successful guy at the party who can't have fun until the big douche who is even more successful kneels.

    i'm happy they didn't follow the same two cop protocol in season one. It would have felt cheesy and lame. This is more of an organic flow.

    The series deepens.

    i used to say stuff like that in colleg eand people would say, "dude what are you on."

    same chumps were calling me telling me I was a genius during the show and I reminded them of him.

    I said, "Naw, fool..g.you just a chump/ass/bigot and you need a good book or something...I'm just educated fool, with no money, and existential angst (buttholes - your mom is a butthole too)"


    I actually didn't call their moms buttholes but I should have.

    so i don't like how the show marginalized that type of essence and made it seem like you ahd to be a reckless, drug taking, cop to be clever.

    I had a different approach. There is no reason why reckless, broken, drug addict can't be a very clever guy. I don't think that as the character he was very different before bad things happened to him, probably less of a pessimist, but that's all. And it added drama to the show, cause if he was simple-minded fool I would never cared so much about what was happening.

    I fail to see how the show is endorsing that you need to be a reckless, drug-taking cop in order to be clever.

    Or beat up your "kid's" bully and their parents.

    Or drive at night with no helmet and lights on.

    I think it might be a picture/photo of a woman floating in the bowl.
