This episode that convinced me that the new season is finally hitting its stride.
At the risk of sounding like a blowhard, I think this episode worked in a way many others so far haven't.
Overall, the first four episodes haven't lived up to the hype... but there's no way we're gonna stop watching.
Of the three episodes we've discussed so far, "Indian Takers" felt the most like the old Arrested Development, something that seems to be happening incrementally as the new season continues.

[Spoiler]'s having a baby! And we have so many questions.
"The Final Chapter" set up an interesting challenge for a show that's sold itself as a cat-and-mouse game between a couple of animals that are really mediocre at toying with each other.

Another week, another round of FBI bumbling.
