  • I've watched every episode and I agree. They're making Joe too damn powerful. It's gotta all come crashing down for him sometime. I just would rather it be a little back and forth, chess match. It seems right now, Joe's playing chess and Ryan and co. are playing checkers.

    And one more thing...Claire is freaking beautiful!

  • I can't help but watch it. FOX airs it every thirty seconds in commercial form.

  • I haven't gotten into it because the very first episode turned me off. Too contrived and full of recurring overused tropes.

    Yeah, my wife wanted me to start watching it, but the first episode failed to hold my interest. A lot of the dialogue is just bad.

  • This show is already starting to jump the shark, I think.

    The FBI is pretty inept, the bad guy has a mole *everywhere* to pul;l the fatout of the fire . . the lawyer chick meekly lets them chop off her fingers . . on and on and on . . I am pretty willing to suspend my disbelief for an entertaining story, but the entertainment is wearing off of this one.

  • I like James Purefoy, he was awesome as Marc Antony in HBO's Rome. And Claire IS hot, she played the wife on Justified until she apparently left the show to do The Following.
