Season 1 was pretty good, not great overall. Had some good action episodes, but it did get a little heavy at points. But overall I was entertained. it didn't feel as cookie cutter as many cop dramas.

Same here; enjoyed last season.

Although since I've been watching Shield for the last few weeks, it's gonna be weird seeing Kenny Johnson in his role here.

Regardless of what show he pops up on, he will forever be known as Lem by me and my wife.

Yup. lol

All I'll ever picture now is him using a shotgun to play air guitar in season 1.

Fun episode to start season 2. Some good action and a cool chopper sequence. I guess Street is going to stay a beat cop awhile longer.

Kind of ironic that SWAT's storyline used a huge earthquake like 911's premiere.

I wasn't feeling Hondo's new apparent love interest. Plus she's got an estranged husband too as the end showed.

Read that SWAT took a hit ratings-wise as it was airing against football. Last year SWAT aired after football finished in November. A write up I saw said that SWAT kind of shares the same audience as football (male viewers)

Fire bombing plot from this past week's episode was entertaining. Hondo's new girlfriend was a big part of it. I'm not really a fan of her. She's not a very good actress. Stephanie Sigman is a much better actress than her. And now it looks like they're bringing back Michael Trucco next week to cause some trouble.

Just noticed that the 2nd SWAT leader Mumford is no longer on the show.



I guess they dropped Peter Onarati because the Commander Hicks is now a regular and in the opening credits.
