  • If they insist on the "case per episode" format, I think it will hurt the show.

    I miss Goggins already. Obviously, we need to meet the rest of the cart and get interested in them, but with Goggins gone (at least for a while), the energy-psycho level of the show dropped a good 30%. The jail band was a great touch - I laughed my ass off, and the scripts continue to put out great conversations. However, Olyphant is now the only larger-than-life character out there and I hope he gets plenty of support because there is great danger that the revolving nature of cases will not leave enough cohesion in there - and to feed the intensity of Olyphant's character, you need to give him some serious meat to bite into. This was definitely not the case this episode; I really think they should have gone with a season-long plot-line. Still, I'll give them a chance...
