    Yep, I thought the same thing. They wouldn't have randomly put that in the episode.

    Well, that episode was very apoplectic.

    You can say that again.



    .... I did feel better about Vaughn tonight, like he has sunk into his role more.

    Lots of things happened on all fronts but I have trouble articulating what they were. (talk, talk, and more talk.) There was a lot of information that was disseminated during this episode.

    The easiest things to recall are the two actions sequences, I guess. And that one conversation on the front porch.

    Favorite episode so far, things are finally starting to come together. I feel like I know enough about the show and about the characters, to be sure I like it.

    I felt like things are revealed so slowly that it's hard to make a decision until a couple episodes in.

    I hope it moves faster. Something about this season that feels slower than the last one.

    We have the city cop drama feel to it and we are used to those moving faster than this.

    I don't think the Casper fellow was killed due to his connections with the gangster though it makes more sense that way. If it's anything like the last season Casper's death is only the tip of the iceberg.

    Finally caught up so I can post in this thread.

    I like this season just fine so far. The characters are interesting and there seem to be a lot of threads to follow as to what is going on. The only guy who seems like a 3rd wheel so far is the gay motorcycle cop, but I'm sure he'll get more involved at some point. I like the judge character too.

    I was kind of hoping they did in the Collin Farrell character for real at the end of episode 2, but I suspected it was a head fake. It's just too bold a move to off a major name for your show in the second episode, but I would have given them a gold star if they would have gone for it. Sort of a ha, ha, turns out he just had an extended cameo, we sure fooled you! I would also have considered it an homage to To Live and Die in LA for those that can recall that movie.

    I think one thing that tipped people off is that they had shown clips with Farrell in them of scenes that hadn't yet aired... so unless those had been flashbacks or they shot a bunch of footage that they didn't plan to use, it seemed that it wasn't a permanent removal.

    But yeah, we'd be getting into GRRM territory at that point. I wasn't really fond of the movie Mystery Men either (the idea was funnier than the execution) until you get to the midpoint and they do something completely unexpected along these lines which actually made the movie better for me. (I am still laughing, just thinking about it!) I guess Psycho and Deep Blue Sea and Pulp Fiction are other movies where they've pulled that kind of trick... although Pulp Fiction was assembled thematically versus in sequence.

    Yes! This is what TD is reminding me of, I couldn't remember that movie.

    I do think Vince Vaughan is filling out the role now, I feel better about the casting. Antigone, she is still my favorite. I know she wanted to bitch slap the mayor's son repeatedly (I would have enjoyed that too).

    I read someone asking if Taylor Kitsch had greyscale.

    Well, that whole last ten minutes there....



    Also, I think there were two Breaking Bad alumni there... edit: Confirmed
