  • Get Him to the Courtroom

    This week we saw the beginning of Hank's trial and the testimony being reflected in gritty flashbacks from Season 1 times. With an ample return was Bill who added a good dramatic flare to it as he reprised his role for the first time since Season 1. Hank faces tough questions and accusations including that he had met Mia before the day that they "first met" but he was drunk on the occasion when they "met" so he didn't remember her but it may not look that way to a jury. But the flashbacks and the overall stakes of the episodes mixed with the X-Files reference of "I look like an FBI Agent" when trying on the suit add up to a truly great episode. What was the real hook was the revelations and pieces that fit back into Season 1 that we hadn't gotten to witness before now and the flashbacks reminded us of how truly awful it is to be Hank Moody somedays.
