The Handler 10/31/03

Another good episode.

Even though he's a criminal, I really like the bookseller guy. He's just a likeable guy. He seems like an "honest" criminal, whatever that means.

The CEO guy was good too. It's kind of funny seeing him get played and seeing him dig himself into a deeper hole by taking out more contracts on people.

Hill Harper was actually likeable in this episode. Most of the time he's irritating to me, but I liked him in this episode.

Anybody know how this show is doing in the ratings? I sure hope it doesn't get canned.

I like Lou Diamond Phillips...should be a good episode next week.

I thought it was funny how quickly the book thief agreed to the deal. I'm used to watching Law & Order where noone takes the deal right off and he took it before she even tells him what it is

The story with Joe and the CEO was great.

Just watched this one last night. Very entertaining episode. Joey Pants and Hill Harper are great in this show. Hill was great in going undercover as a geeky historian. He always has different hair in each job too.

I hope the bookseller sticks around, even as a semi-regular cast member. I love that actor; he pulls off this role perfectly.

It will be fun to see these sub-plots pop up every once in a while (the bookseller, the CEO taking out hits, the Italian mobsters, etc).

I don't mind one continuing storyline, but not a couple of them. I liked the episode, but I would rather self contained episodes...

Anyone else find it funny that "Quark" is peddling stolen books, and is now turning state's evidence for a lesser charge in a murder investigation/case?

No way. I find this more realistic.

I love the continuing storylines. So many other crime shows have stand-alone episodes, and the continuation of plots in The Handler is one of its draws for me.

It always bugs me in other shows when stuff is wrapped up so nice and neatly at the end of one episode.
