Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Just caught the first episode and it seemed pretty good (on Global, as I don't have NBC being a crazy Canadian). Premise is a cop after being convicted for a crime he didn't commit spends 11 years in prison before being found to be innocent and let out. He's given a large settlement of money, and his job back as a detective.
Except while in prison he is beaten constantly and becomes slightly fucked up as a result.
The first detective scene was sort of bad, but it went uphill after that. It seems they are trying to make a House like cop show, with an eccentric protagonist. And the show succeeds at that.
The scene with
Charlie catching the man his ex-wife married for changing lanes was pretty gold
as was the scene where he tells the man to flush the weed
The part at the end:
where he was in front of the web of names who contributed to framing him (I think...) with the music playing was awesome
And his partner Dani
Rehab is mentioned multiple times... and she freaks out when she gets the coke on her, but alcohol is also connected to her. Which one is it?
So did anyone else like it? I'm probably going to add it to the list of TV shows I'll try to watch, along with Heroes and House.
