  • a normal episode were nothing happend

    a good episode where we can see the day by day operation of a casino. In this episode as ussual they mix three or four lines of story. The director make a personal touch with the selling of danny's fathers house. The way that they show how many resources are used by the staff to cacth bad guys is very good

    but found the truck chase seen a little goofy. :) Wasn't expecting to like Monica much, but she's turning into a very fun character. Does anyone else find it odd that we haven't even seen Mary's boyfriend - jake? - at all? I think she shouted "breakfast is ready" once to him last episode...but ever since, all we get is "He's working late" every time any one asks about him.



    And, did I miss an epidsode (or am mis remembering), or have they completely skipped the whole scary danger aspect to last season's finale of Nessa & Delinda in the airplane with someone after them?moreless
  • Well it looks like they did it. The way the season ended you would have figured that they would be jumping the shark any day now. They saved the show and it is getting the looks it deserves.moreless

    I like the way that the family type interaction was shaken up a bit. Last year everything came to the casino and they all buddied up to get the thing solved. This year it seams more like they are on thier own solving the problems that they are best at. Security is dealing with thieves and the girls are dealing with obnoxious guests, and in the middle is the boss getting in everybodies hair. Almost like a real job. The only thing I really miss is Nessa, she was beautiful and exotic and had a great accent. I hope she comes back but there is no hint of that. This is not a deep show it is there like the real Las Vegas. It entertains, titilates, makes us think and o things we normally would not do in everyday life. And we dont admit that we enjoy the hedonistic pleasure of it. As long as they don't start casting Pam Anderson and David Hasselhoff we wont realize its Baywatch without the beach.moreless
  • looking good to me

    Was an ok episode im my opinon had plenty of action through out especially the lorry chase with edd and mike.

    i agree a little bit with the last review about danny not working with the rest of the team much any more but i guess he has is own stuff to deal with at the moment like the house and his fathers death but once thats cleared he will be back, although he was on the ball in this episode and had a good chase him self.

    im loving this fight between sam and monica and it seems monica is winning so far but dont count sam out yet lol.

    overall another good episode and if it keeps it up this season should do as well as the others

  • It was a good solid show but just nothing too speicial.

    It was a good solid show but just nothing too speicial, don't misunderstand me, I really did like this episode but it just didn't blow me away. As always the characters blend well together. I love the way Sam and Monica play off of each other. I really wish there was more of Danny at the casino in this one. Ed and Mike always seem to have so much fun when they are working together. Okay I think there is definitely trouble in paradise with Mary and her new boyfriend. He iss always working late, I really can't imagine him being okay with her spending a lot of time with Danny even though he just lost his father. I love the way they are showing the chemistry between Danny and Mary is still there and I'm sure we will see more of them together. I'm anxious to find out about the woman in the photo with Danny's father. I'm sure this mystery will be resolved in a future episode. Of course Danny flirting with the realtor at the end when she wants to sell his father's house for him. Which in my opinion is the reason we won't see Danny and Mary together as a couple again, Danny needs to be able to flirt and that would be a little difficult if he were engaged or married to Mary, they don't want us to hate him.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: When Mike and Ed are looking at the satellite photos of the trucks, they make a big point out of the fact that the truck that is supposed to contain the machine has the number 207 written on the roof. Just a few moments later, when the two trucks meet up, we can see that neither truck has anything written on the roof.
