Yeah, was hoping this would build an audience. Doesn't look to be the case though. Anyway, I'm in as well.

Really liking the show. A little peeved that iTunes doesn't let me download it till the next morning, which can screw up my commute if I don't let it download right when I wake up. But that's a tech thing. Great show.

Best episode so far. The show just keeps improving.

---

Liked both storylines. When the guy took the gun I knew they were going to set him up, but it still played out nicely. I'm glad he came clean about burglarizing her house and intentionally running into it. I expected her to be mad, wasn't expecting the break-in/rape fantasy though. That came out of left field.

I can't believe that guy killed himself. It was pretty messed up. I lol'd though when Hank forged the guy's signature on the last page just to make sure he got the loan. Was Olivia Williams supposed to be American? There were times when she sounded almost American, but other times her accent came through pretty strongly; couldn't tell which she was going for.

I looked away for a split second in the final scene and saw a pair of legs go into the ceiling; did we see who that was?

I like this show though, it definitely keeps getting better and they're really doing a good job developing our two leads as semi-likable, flawed individuals doing the best they can. I don't imagine it will come back for a second season, but I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

No, they were wearing a mask it looked like. I'm guessing related to the rich dude they setup in the first episode.

that was weird to see someone climbing up into the attic. they showed a really quick clip of it in next week's preview, so maybe we'll learn more.

As mentioned, great episode this week. Donal Logue was cast perfectly in this show and he plays it spot-on. Surprised at how much I like him in this -- considering I wasn't all that passionate about his prior work.

Terriers (63 minutes)
- 0.568 million viewers
- 0.4/1 HH
- 0.2/1 A18-49

There really is no hope for this show now. I didn't expect it to gain many viewers, but did think it would at least hold a steady audience. I find the show very enjoyable and thought people would stick around.

Oh well, we get the first season at the very least.

Good episode last night. It sucks that the ratings are so low, but as Deftones said, the marketing was terrible and I only checked it out because of the the positive things people said on here and because of the actor from True Blood.

This show reminds me so much of Veronica Mars. It is light-medium noir in a beach city. Donal Logue's character is a perfect addict..i.e. Someone who has gotten sober yet is still engaging in non-sober and codependent acts.

Shame if it goes away too quickly.

The name didn't help either. But yeah, I think the promos I saw of the show involved dogs running around the LA storm drain system and the beach.
