  • Devin was cool. Great brotherly and fatherly love.

    Cool! After all these years I just found out the actor who played Devin used to be Linda Hamilton's husband. Thanks for telling me this! lol! I like this episode which introduces Devin to us a lot more than the second season episode Brothers for some reason. Nice to see a young Vincent and some of the problems he and Devin got into. The brotherly love is very sweet and the reaction of Father to Devin's way of life was very emotional. Another episode which makes me think having a whole episode set in the past would vastly help and be enjoyable to the fans but sadly it was not meant to be. :(moreless
