Aww, c'mon, Lazzy, you gotta hatewatch something. Fumbled at the goal line? Good one! Well, you know what they say about opinions and shit.


All we are saying is give Vince a chance! All we're sayin'! All we are saying is give Colin a chance! All we're sayin'! All we are saying is give Rachel a chance! All we're sayin'! All we are saying is give Taylor a chance! Well, wait a minute. Fuck him! He did look pretty dopey riding his motorcycle with no lights on and shit. And the Viagra. Well, war is Hell.

Yep, sounds about right.

Some would say that the Nicholson always stabs twice.

Kind of a meh premiere, somehow managing to be both unnecessarily oblique and on the nose. Season 1 got off to a far more economical, intriguing start.

That being said, the 3 detectives have all met over the case now and the middling reviews were only based on the first 3 eps. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

Got a James Ellroy vibe off much of the episode, so I'm wondering who's going to croak by episode 6? Colin or Taylor, if I had to guess based on tropes.

Yes, that second half of the threat is very important. Otherwise, the kid would be like, "yeah, whatever".


Can't wait to meet his son's mother.

Hopefully, by the next episode, we'll see Colin's character shooting up heroin or smoking crack. So far, it's booze, pot and coke. Almost sounds like something they'd chant during the Wizard of Oz. Booze, pot and coke! Oh my! Booze, pot and coke! Oh my!

First episode clearly just to set up the characters before throwing them together on the case. Definitely not as good an opening episode as season 1, which drew you in right away, but by the end it built up some potential.

The motorcycle scene made me think of:

Of course the photo of the guy Vaughn showed him (who presumably Farrell killed) was a skinny dark haired guy, so I have a feeling we'll find out that Vaughn gave him the wrong guy (just some low life junkie) intentionally so he could have Farrell indebted to him. (Wouldn't be surprised to find out Vaughn set the whole thing up in fact)

I read on the internet that i was a mass murdering drug addict who can only relate to cats, predatory and/or domestic. That's not all entirely true...even if i wrote most of it.

I enjoyed it. Was the CHP guy hiding the fact that he is gay? He popped a Viagra and seemed disinterested during coitus

I enjoyed it too, no idea about the CHP guy. I assumed it was Viagra too but didn't think about the gay angle. Could be why he always bales on her and doesn't like the commitment. He also likes to drive very fast with no headlights, maybe that's a gay thing too

This isn't the first time I've heard that theory posited in the last couple days.
