    Actually, 'Game Night' did not air on October 22. The aired episode was named 'Critical Mass'.

    I noticed that last night, but I don't know why they showed previews for "Game Night" all week.

    Ok now it makes sense I was confused at first expected the football player storyline. Anyway another good episode but as others have said the New Orleans post storm is bad motif is getting quite over bearing. That's for another time for now once again we have a case that keeps us intrigued and we see a little more into Boulett's past. Nice twist on the questionable priest plot and the churches stand on confession confidentiality. Once again Boulett is brought to the table of reconciliation in an effort to end another painful part of his past. I hope they don't constantly focus on past resolutions and find a way to bring us stories without making New Orleans look like Mad Max meets the old west every episode.

    actually, new orleans really is WORSE that the way they make it out to be.

    they just make it in the wrong part of town.

    we are the murder capitol of america after all, and this is a small town.

    our murder number is already at over 200.

    and according to the AP, the murder rate here is "ten times the national average", but still "far lower than a decade ago".

    they also said:

    "NEW ORLEANS - Last year, university researchers conducted an experiment in which police fired 700 blank rounds in a New Orleans neighborhood in a single afternoon. No one called to report the gunfire."

    reference: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8999837

    though their police work is unconventional, the law-enforcment here has very little CSI or detective work, so the beat cop is often the one to do investigations.

    wild west?

    i say: "wild east-bank"

    I didn't say it was untrue I just said to be hit with it everyweek is a bit overbearing. Hopefully next weeks protect the football player episode will semi-lighten the tone of the show.

    i apologize. i hafta defend my hometown.

    i suggest a more realistic episode where cobb and boulet beat a tourist after he refuses to bribe them...

    ...later they fudge the paperwork to make the suspect appear the be a homosexual prostitute.

    now that's new orleans!
