    Also, does this show know how to end an episode or what! The way they ended episode two and the way they ended this last one was excellent.

    I remember an episode of CSI, where a bunch of killers were basing their crime spree off a GTA type game that was already released a while ago. So after the detectives go to the game company to find out where they might be headed next, the CEO is all, "Sorry, that's a trade secret, if you want to find out, you need to play the game!" So then the episode is about whether or not they can beat the game in time to catch the next crime. At no point do they ever ask for a strategy guide. Or download a walkthrough. Or just ask some random kid down the street to beat the game instead, because your detectives probably have more important things to do, and probably won't do as well on the game anyway.

    Yeah, I don't watch CSI anymore.

    That was the abortion known as CSI Miami. They sensationalize everything to ridiculous degrees. The Pop scene seemed like a rip off from the movie Cloak and Dagger.

    The last episode more than made up for the PoP sequence.

    I mean, that was the lowest point of the series so far, and it wasn't even that low. It was corney, but at least it was a real game and it made a bit of sense. The playing montage was funny though.

    Yeah the PoP thing was kind of dumb, but it didn't detract from the overall episode (which was still solid). This weeks episodes story really gripped me. I liked how Charlie saw himself in Farthingale.

    Yeah I liked how his partner was defacto insulting him the entire episode but not being aware of how he lives had no idea. I wonder if there is a particular reason charlie hasn't gotten any furniture (perhaps he plans on moving, or something in prison?).

    I liked how even though they were solving a crime, this episode gave us a lot of insight into charlie.

    It's more that he just doesn't have a materialistic outlook anymore. He has no need to keep up with the Joneses, so the clutter is meaningless. I think he ultimately saw a lot of himself in Farthingale, especially when they noted exactly how complex the research to find the nut was (he had to mine the data deep.)

    Oh, I think the best back and forth was when Charlie laid out the old "the wives did it" theory:

    "I can't believe that's your theory."

    "Why? Everything fits together."

    "I know. That's why I can't believe it's your theory."

    Yeah I like how he took her usual stance and she got to shoot it down. I wasn't sold on his partner at first but I am warming up to her as a character.

    So....what do you guys think is gonna happen in the next 2-3 episodes?

    Too bad for the writer's strike because this is the only new show that I like.

    1) I bet he finds out where the missing girl is and we don't see a new episode for months.
    2) His partner finds out about the wall and is tempted to narc on him.
    3) His old partner freaks out and does something stupid.
    4) Somehow his financial guy( I forget his name) was in on the Bank of LA job and has some insight to the key players. Or he was tasked to keep tabs on Charlie from someone higher up the food chain in return for his freedom.

    So will we ever see the solar farm again? Or is the environment no longer important now that green week is over?

    Note: I missed the last episode.

    Based on the quirks of Charlie it might come up again, but I doubt the network is gonna shove the green down our throats.

    Watch the latest episode. Saving a few buck is the least of Charlie's problems right now.

    Don't be the only guy to not watch episode, but join the crowd and not not watch the episode.

    I doubt number four is going to happen. The guy committed white collar fraud. He didn't partake in armed robbery. Also, I'm ruling out number two. Number three would be too obvious. So here's to number one!

    Cliffhanger, then months of no new episodes. Seriously, Hollywood, shut up and get back to work.

    I know the guy didn't actually rob the bank, but he could have something to do the washing the money. He only got caught for some crimes. There is no telling what other mischief he might be involved in.

    And why would you rule out for #2? Since the first ep her superior told her to report any shady action Charlie might be doing. If she sees her mug on the wall that might tempt her to narc on him. They are partners, so I think it's a matter of time before she ends up at his house for whatever reason.

    Yeah but his partner would actually have to show up at his house for that to happen, so far she seems to avoid Cruise all together when they aren't working.

    Exactly. And even if she ends up visiting him at his house, why would she end up in his bedroom, much less the walk-in closet? That would only happen if she turned out to be involved, and they made her into an antagonist. So far, she's stuck up for her partner and refused to narc on him to her superiors. Unless her father is somehow involved (as was hinted) and she does something to defend him.

    When it came out that her father was involved and the russian was talking about his current partner not his old one. I started to wonder if she is working against him. Perhaps she sticks up for him so she can better set him up for daddy?

    Just watched a couple episodes for the first time and I'm surprised at how much I enjoy it. Having some ridiculously attractive female leads doesn't hurt things either.

    Hope it does good/better enough in the ratings to be able to keep going.

    edit: I also like how they seem to keep using Band of Brothers and Deadwood actors.

    Well, he ended up at her house in the AA rapist episode, so who knows how she may end up there. With all the enemies Crews is most likely going to make in next few episodes he may end up missing or something. I'm guessing once Crews and daddy Reese get into it, she is gonna have to take a side and investigate what is really going on.

    Another great episode tonight, but why would they be showing two all-new episodes next week?

    I know it just recently got picked up for an entire season but with the writers strike happening why wouldn't they try to conserve the episodes that they have?

    I haven't heard anything about how the show is doing in the ratings but since one of the new episodes next week is on Monday right after Heroes it seems like they might be trying to make a grab for new viewers.
