  • This episode marks a turning point, the point where "Las Vegas" lost its credibility. A very sad moment, and an insult to its viewers...

    After two full (entertaining) seasons, it seems the writers made fun of an entire community of fans. The outcome of this episode is so absurd and pulled by the hair that it takes away any further interest in the show, and nothing can be done about it. A very bad moment of television and a great disappointment...
  • Loved it! Thought the end was crap though. But it had it's up side. No More Monica!! Yeah!

    I thought this was pretty good episode actually. All the usual stuff, finding and dealing with cheaters, Sam being a gross money grubbing whale tamer (shocking but always entertaining).

    And then there's Monica. I've read the other reviews, and I really don't think she was being out of character. Giving Danny the car and wanting to 'dress' him was totally in character. She likes to control everything, that's why she was relieved when Ed left because she knew she couldn't control him. The fact that she thought she could control Danny just proved what an unintelligent bimbo she is.

    But the last 30 seconds with her doing a flying nun impression off the balcony?!?!?! What was that all about?

    I just figured it was a gag. That is, until I read the synopsis for the next ep. That's where I thought that maybe someone slipped the writers something in the controlled substance line...

    I love that Dean Cain is coming on board though. I was so disappointed when the season started with that scrawny Monica broad and not Casey as the new owner.

    But I really don't believe the show's jumped the shark just yet.moreless
  • Danny's in charge

    I can't believe all the bad reviews this episode got in this web site! I didn't found it to be boring at all. All I keep thinking was, I wish this show is on cable!!!!! The plot was right, a bit soft, but it was certainly not boring. This show is not a serious show, its entertaining, its funny and a bit sexy. This episode has all that. At first I thought Ed would be running another casino, but it turns out that he's fight back. The only thing, is want to see more of 'Monica' getting stuck in the shower more! All in all, it was an entertaining show, what you always expected from Las Vegas.moreless
  • A bad attempt at humor.

    Story was ok, I didn't mind the comic-like fade to commercials, those were pretty neat. And there were many funny parts.

    The ending, however, was absolutely horrific. I think this is the beginning of the end of this show. Lately they seem to be grasping at story ideas and are giving in to cheap gimmicks.

    We changed commercials after the first few minutes of the flashback show to the 60's. Couldn't stomach watching more of the cheesy plot than that.

    I am kind of glad they got rid of monica, the collagen infused bimbo. The show was really well done the first season and a bit, but is just not up to the quality it used to be.moreless
  • Boring piece of crap. I felt like i was watching a freaking silly cartoon/soap opera crossover. Get Jordan from Crossing Jordan to do an autopsy on Monica to prove how impossible her death is.moreless

    I don't get what this show is supposed to be about, a crime drama? a soap opera? comedy? Writers seem to squeeze story lines which involving a casino there is not going to be many. What's with the guy in a superhero suit thinking he can fly through walls, then the ridiculous look on his face when he hits the wall. Okay for a bugs bunny cartoon, not a serious TV show. Then Monica flying off the roof, where if its so windy why doesn't her dress flap at all until she flies off, neither does her hair. I'd love if they invited Crossing Jordan to do an autopsy on her, to prove how impossible that would be to die like that in real life considering Crossing Jordan/Las Vegas are in same realities since they did crossovers.moreless

      Sam: Your ass has gotten huge.

    • Delinda: Sam told me you guys used to be best friends.
      Myra: Actually, we were more like sisters. Until she stabbed me in the back and twisted the knife slowly. Then filleted me and poured salt on the open wound as she cut my heart out.
