I was actually amazed last season when he wasnt nominated for an Emmy. He was so great in that role. I loved him in Last King of Scotland, and was glad he got the recognition for that role.
This season seems like a roller coaster already. My girlfriend, who's never seen the show, was wondering why I was all "the shield starts in two weeks". She watched tonight's show and went home and programed it in her DVR.
Astonishing to see Corrine go to Danny's place, and Danny to actually somewhat acknowledge it's Vic's kid. Was funny hearing her call Corrine a "uptight bitch".
And, Kavannaugh planting evidence was 100% not expected.
Cant wait to see how the season unfolds. I know there are a ton of spoilers out, but I am doing everything to avoid them at all costs. I want to be suprised.
Kavannaugh has been a steaming pile of dog shit since day one, and the evidence planting just proves it to any doubters. I hope he goes down hard and bloody. Shane is shaking in his boots and just knows he's gonna get what's coming to him. Great episode. didn't see much of ECW because of it, but seeing as no one has posted a new show thread about it in weeks, it's as good as dead anyway.
I was counting the hours until last night's premiere.
Good episode. I love the little things, like Vic's comment about "best friends" at the murder scene and Shane's face. I love how Vic is being framed for the one crime that he didn't do, and how angry and shocked I am at Kavanaugh's behavior. I love Billings, and I foresee him and Dutch Boy (as partners, no less!) being great comic relief in the coming weeks.
Shawn Ryan has said that he went back and watched every episode of the show before he starting writing these last two seasons, because he wants to make sure he doesn't leave anything hanging. I think that's cool. Not all writers do that, and it's frustrating.
I am not 100% sure, but aren't Vic and Corrine divorced? If so, why did she care so much that he had a baby with someone else?
With Kavanaugh being such a great adversary, I forgot Aceveda was such an asshole. I can't wait to see him finally get what is coming to him, too.
Even though Vic honestly deserves everything that happens to him, I still can't help rooting for the guy. That's great writing and acting. There isn't a character on this show that is totally likable. But you can't help rooting for some of them. The are all f*cked up to varying degrees, but they are as realistic as any cast of characters that I can ever remember on TV.
Dean! Have you been shooting dope into your scrotum? You can tell me! I'm hip!
Dutch is a douchebag. Self inflated ego, and thinks he's ten times smarter than everybody around him. Classic example was when the one serial killer he caught, made him look like a tool and he went to his car to cry.
The piece in Esquire is a pretty great read. Ebert is one of the last of his kind in terms of understanding the role of a film critic (or the role of any critic, for that matter) and relaying the necessity of that role to the general public.
