I have to admit that I am really liking this show. It's quirky and funny as hell, imo. Eddie (Mark Valley) and his partner, Monty (Julian Rhind-Tutt) at Scotland Yard play off each other well, but the interaction between Eddie and his blonde roommate, Fiona (Sienna Miller) is classic. I love Sienna Miller now, too.

This show is goofey and great at the same time. I hope others enjoy it, too.

The "quirkiness" of some shots bothered me at first, but after a while that feeling went away.

Mark & Julian are cool. Fiona is [and so was that brunette that tongued the spoon of tapioca ].

I'm sure it'll be cancelled soon for a special "extended" Paradise Hotel*.. -- lord knows he's not gonna get a chance to fill up that map -- that's FOR sure..

Guess i'll have to go back and watch last week's ep now..

* [or something similar...]

Odd how they never once used the word "sperm". Is that a no-no word?

I'm predicting that it'll be the Tuesday edition of "Anything for Love". America will love having idiots exploited for ratings love.

I don't know how well the show has done in ratings, but I doubt it's spectacular.

Just like "American Embassy". *sigh*

I am still bitter about that one. Everyone I know who watched it liked it. The narration didn't even bother them.

I only got through half of it on my ReplayTV before I needed to go to bed, but I liked the line from Pipin, which he said something to the effect of "You two are going to have beautiful children." referring to the sparks between Eddie and Fiona.

Me mesmerized by Sienna Miller (Fiona).

Patman - this show is full of great lines and one-liners. Some of the stuff they say just kills me. And you gotta love the dog, too.

That opening shot of the dog with a cell phone in his mouth was ominous. I initially thought that was a muzzle band holding him back from the cat.

I missed the first episode. Anyone know if it is going to be replayed?

Sienna Miller. I call dibs!

Although I share the pessimism about this show's fate. It is really a lot of fun. I spit Coke when Fiona's boyfriend was passing out the tapioca and said she didn't like it because of the texture. And then the female friend motioned the boyfriend to put the pudding in her mouth and turned Fiona and said "It's an acquired taste darling" or something like that. Considering the nature of the caper that is the main plot of this episode, it was a great double entendre.

I don't think this show has much more time. It finished 5th in it's timeslot and was even behind America's Next Top Model.

Of course....how could the possibility of mass bikini waxes not attract an audience..?

That sucks.

Well, I guess I can keep my fingers crossed that it might last a few more weeks. This would be the perfect show for FX if it does get dropped from the big network.

Man that is too bad. I wish they would do what they did with 24 and repeat it on FX. It might build an audience if they gave it a chance. It's too bad, reality TV will keep this from coming back. Just one more reason to hate the genre.

Great episode. It is great to see Alexei Sayles return, but my favorite was the two brothers. Would love to see them as recurring characters...

I enjoyed the first episode, but I didn't think it was anything spectacular. This episode, however, was even better and very entertaining. The misdirection on the sperm with the soap bubbles and the tapioca was priceless. In fact the whole tapioca scene with the double entendres was great stuff. It's lifespan is likely only another week or two, but I'll enjoy it while it's there.

I was waiting for the inevitable scene where someone mistakenly drinks the seed, or uses it for their coffee, or something similar. Thankfully, it didn't happen. As far as I am concerned, that is reason enough to give this show a chance...
