It's been a long time since they had a really good openning sequence. Cheryl Ladd is still hot. Too bad they had to zoom past the rest of the girls in swimsuits.

Too bad the rest of the show was coma-inducing. I can't wait for Everwood to come back with new episodes because the only reason I've been watching Las Vegas was because of the cleavage on display in HDTV.

No kidding. The intro was the highlight of the show. Another ho-hum ep.

Everwood has been in re-runs for well over a month and I think there is still a couple of weeks to go until there is a new ep.

This show is becoming to soppy. I'd rather see James Cain kick some ass.

They need to go with some plot where Ed's wife dies and he gets all rotted and starts being a realy hard a$$. That would make this show more fun.

Rob Halford? Elton John?

It was pretty bad. Still, nothing beats the episode with Sam's sleep-deprived, caffeine-induced paranoia. That was the WORST!

I have simply started to expect much less from this show, from what I initially did. It's average at best and this episode was no different.

No, that would turn it into 24, which would make it suck.

I liked the episode. I liked that they brought back the lounge singer. I liked the way Danny took the pickpocket out with his car, and I really liked how Sam immediately knew it was a pickpocket that took the money.

Sugar Ray was a little lame though. No big.

I never take part in the weekly threads since I always end up not watching this show until Saturday/Sunday and anything that I could possibly think of saying has already been said...

But, I agree...this ep was bad...

Sugar Ray = Happy 30th anniversary

Exactly why did Ed's wife have to meet with Mark all that week at his hotel room? To discuss Mark's placement of the chair that Ed was going to sit in on stage?

The sad thing is this episode could have been great if Big Ed had just snapped Mark McGrath's neck ar at least given him a beating similar to the one he gave Carlo in The Godfather
