I really missed this show and was really excited about finally getting a new episode on Friday, but I must say this was one of my least favorite episodes, maybe the least favorite. It just never really grabbed my attention at all. Barring a couple of great parts (Lori Petty getting her head smashed in), there just wasn't much to like and it was perhaps the most predictable ep of the series, which is really saying something.

And while we're talking about this ep, what happened to Lori Petty's career? At one time, I remember she was becoming kind of a marquee name. How quickly they fall. I think her forehead has gotten even bigger over the years.

The image of Lori Petty that I want to keep is from Point Break. As to what happened to her career...Tank Girl happened. Seriously, I don't know although she isn't looking the best these days.
