Great follow up to last week.

Rather than just starting up a new case fresh, it was good to see the aftermath of Charlie's murder still lingering with the characters.

Nice to see Ray finally get out of the halfway house.

The case of the week was fun. It was cool to see Erica with a gun. That is pretty hot.

:lol: at Shea calling the FBI agent Foxy Brown.

rotfl at Lloyd in his boxers playing guitar with the leaf blower as a distraction.

"Shabba, Shabba" :lol:


:thumbsup: the toast at the end to Charlie was a nice touch, especially with Ray leaving a drink of Charlie's photo.

After the great season opener, I was afraid this episode would be a letdown by comparison. I was very glad to be wrong. It was great episode all around and I love how they are all reeling from the loss of Charlie in their own way.

Really liked Lloyd saying he missed Charlie.

Lloyd has just been tremendous this season. Every scene with him has either been really dramatic or really funny.

I'm starting to think there's something more to the new neighbor downstairs. Last week they made a point to show him looking at the laptop with the government symbol on it and this week he's consoling Erica right after getting upset she was downstairs.

Surprised to see Charlie's killer makes his return so soon next week as I thought it would be a few more episodes of them coming to grips with it and then "bam" he shows up to bring up all the feelings again.

I like all the characters, but Lloyd really makes the show for me. Good case of the week, and I liked them dealing with Charlie's death.

I'm not sure where they're going with the new office tenant. It did seem suspicious that a nightclub owner would rent an office - why not run the place from the nightclub during the day? We'll see.

Yep. There's no way that guy doesn't play a larger role in this season. Not sure what yet, but he's definitely doing something. Maybe spying on the team to see if they are doing what they are supposed to be doing.

Lloyd is awesome on this show. Shabba!

Funniest thing of Lloyd for me was seeing him spider walk his chair across the office floor towards Shea.

I'm confused. Are they going to attribute extra meaning to Charlie's death? Or are they gonna bring him back in some unlikely scenario just to kill him again?

I think it has something to do with the arc for this season. Charlie's dead no question about that. Nick Santora is a smart writer, I trust they have something interesting planned.

They saw how popular Walking Dead is.

I bought the DVD for season 1 today. There are 2 commentary tracks. 1 on the Pilot and the other on the T-Bag episode. They are fantastic. Very informative. Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora do the tracks and they are very fun to listen to.

Matt Olmstead mentioned on one of the commentary tracks that season 2 is being shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. They said they had to get out of the Toronto cold, which was where season 1 was shot.

If you choose to buy the DVD, I highly recommend giving the tracks a listen.

The bonus materials besides the commentary tracks is a little weak. Probably less than 30 minutes of material. Mostly EPK fluff and deleted scenes.

It's a shame they didn't put the first season out on Blu-ray.

As for this episode, I enjoyed it. They continued the Charlie arc while delving into the convicts of the week, blending everything together quite well. As for the club guy downstairs, there has to be something more to him than just somebody for Erica to flirt with. It's actually pretty damn creepy that he's in that trashy office all by himself surrounded by random bottles of alcohol. It's such a strange profession to give him.

I do wish they would have spent an episode at Ray's halfway house last season. Granted, it would have pulled away from the formula of chasing down cons for one night, but there seems to be some nice backstory and characters there that seemingly have gone to waste.

I wish season 1 was on BD. This show looks great in HD.
