Life -- "Jackpot" -- 11/5/08

Life

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


The investigation of a woman's murder points to a lottery-winner support group whose members have trouble coping with their sudden windfalls. Elsewhere, Rachel, though mum on her family's murder, connects with Crews.



Crossing my fingers tonight.

Totally forgot this was moving to Wednesday. Last chance for this show to improve in the ratings. Bouncing around the schedule hurt its chances.

This show has completely lost its way. I guess after they got picked up for a season they decided that they could throttle back a bit on the main storyline and in the process they've given us just another sub-par police drama.

I agree. We need to see more about Jack Reese and the big plot. But I did like it that Ponch thought Crews was cool.

I liked this episode, I just like the cast a lot. so I enjoy watching them, maybe the ongoing plot is too complicated for it to be able to pick up ratings, but they keep pieces of it going in every Ep.

I remembered him most from My Name is Earl.

I agree with you guys, I enjoy this show every episode whether they do much with the big story or not. It's actually one of my 2 or 3 most anticipated shows each week.

Slowly catching up on my backlogged shows and episodes. I thought this was another solid episode from this show. I really like the cast and the original stories, along with the larger picture being addressed throughout.

I did feel the girl moving in with him seemed random, but it should add another dimension.

Glad to see it was picked up for a full season.
