I loved this episode! I swear, every time Chuck and Ned "hug" eachother separately, it's like my heart skips a beat.

Also, Chenowith bringing the twins out to play

The hopping Chenoweth in that mermaid outfit is the best thing that I have seen on TV in a long time.

AMEN to that.

I am not a fan of musicals, but watching Chenoweth makes me want to see Wicked something wicked. Maybe because she makes me think of wicked thoughts...in the gutter indeed....



She can give me some pie any time she wants....

Yeah, that sink plunging and the hopping mermaid scenes were hynotizing.

Olive also had a few great "Ghetto lines" that made me laugh.

"Don't make me cut a Bitch" and I think she said, "Oh no you di-in't"

I don't know why but I really liked that this week's bad guy. The actor who played him was great and his lines were pretty good.

And a shout out to Pee Wee!

So, will Pee Wee be a recurring character? It looks like he's gonna be back at least one more time.

Great episode. When does the DVD come out?

I just hope it will be a dual format release. I'd be pretty sad if it only came out on Blu-Ray.

Not because i'm pro-HD or anti-BR, but because I only have an HD player. Unless BR player prices drop to Toshiba depths in the near future...

I wondered the same thing. But does anyone remember a customer early on that they brought in who fell for Olive? The narrator said he realized, "she would be the love of his life" or something like that but so far we haven't heard from him again.

Speaking of the Narrator, I know a lot of you guys were bitching about the Narration....did they cut back or is it just me?

If it was cut back, I didn't notice. I love the narration - show wouldn't be the same without it!

I almost wish they'd drop the murder-of-the-week aspect & go in another direction. This show is too good & the character interactions are interesting enough that I hope this doesn't become just a murder solving procedural. Because there's certainly no shortage of those.....

I dunno it seems to work pretty well for CSI and L&O.

I see the storyline being a lot like Monk. Quirky solutions to quirky problems. What happens is less important than how it is dealt with. PD is a solid mix of serial and episodic. Thats not a small feat. Most shows lean one way or the other and settle for the audience they get.

One huge drawback to the show is its complexity and reliance on previous knowledge. My mother tried watching it but couldn't follow it at all. She didn't understand the connection between any of the principle characters.

Saw Chenoweth on a repeat of the Jimmy Kimmel show last night, and she was a hoot.

Now we need a gif of hopping Mermaid Olive...
