  • Usually this show has a good mix of humor and seriousness, but this time it was some serious sh*t all the way.

    9.5
    Then add the shock I still felt after the previous episode and we have an extremly touching and good episode. The loss of a child must be one of the worse things a human being can experience. I'm not a guy who supports the death penalty, but revenge feel too damn good sometimes. Seeing that guy walking smiling at the train station after what he had done was just horrible. Yeah he deserved it, but the killing of him left a bitter taste. The look of Tommy and his dad's face wasn't a pretty sight, but it was something that had to be done. Laura is out of the picture. About time. Too bad for Franco though, but I never realized what he saw in her anyway. One less **** to worry about, but actually we got to see Sheila's good side in this episode.



    We got also to see Tommy cry for the first time (I think), which he really needed. After that he could snap out of his deep, deep sorrow a little and start to move on. Speaking of which, it's time for me to me on to a all new season to me. How exciting!moreless
  • Simply Stunning!

    The scene in this episode where Tommy has just come home and the apartment is dark is one that really gets me. He says the name "Conner" out loud as if to expect an answer. And if anyone were to get an answer it would be him. It teased the audience into wondering if Tommy would start talking to Conner like his cousin. When I first saw this episode I thought he might. This is one reason why this show is so great. We see more of Shelia's abusive lesbian relationship which offers insight into Tommy's thought. The episode concludes with revenge, or justice as the episode is titled. The audience is left with mixed feelings with what happened and another cliff hanger ending is given when the audience is left wondering what the consequences are of what happened. This episode wraps up the season, while working well to show the emotions of what happened last episode.moreless

    This episode was very dramatic, not that every episode isn't, but this episode in particular took a very dramatic turn. After Connor's death seeing Tommy and the rest of his faimly take their revenge you just realized how flawed and human these men are. It's not just drama and compelling story lines these characters are really human, they deal with tragedy and death the only ways they can. Even if that means dillusions and murder.moreless
  • The action around Shiela gets really out of control. She is trapped in an abusive realtionship with her female campanion, but still lusts for Tommy....

    9.6
    The person I really feel sorry for is Shiela; her realtionship with Tommy is the most entertaining aspect of this series. Her emotions and desires are very realistic for a single mother trying to recover from the loss of her husband and coping with loneliness...

    In this episode she gets physically abused by her female lover and is continually neglected and mistreated by Tommy after he ends their relationship. Despite this, she still comes out to give Tommy moral support after the tragic death of his son. Sheila appears to care a lot more about Tommy than his estranged wife Janet. Watching the scenes with her and Tommy can be a feature film all by itself...



    One area on the show that is not very realistic are the Hockey games with the NYPD. These scenes resemble a remake of the movie "Slapshot". Having played hockey against the NYFD team when I was in college, I can tell you that their skill level is very good. They also play fairly "clean" games against the NYPD.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • John Sr.: I'm an old man. So they put me in jail. That could be two weeks for all we know.
      Uncle Teddy: That could be one week.
      John Sr.: Thanks, asshole.
      Uncle Teddy: Look, you're not doing this, if this goes down, I'm the shooter.
      John Sr.: I had first dibs.
      Tommy: Did you just say dibs?

    • Janet (to Tommy): You save strangers but you can't keep your eyes on your own son, as he rides his bike down the goddamn block!

    • Sean: Seriously, this whole Katy thing is freaking me out. I can't shake it.
      Lou: So you believe in heaven?
      Sean: Of course.
      Lou: With people standing around on clouds all day?
      Sean: Well, yeah.
      Lou: With wings?
      Sean: We-- I don't know about wings. That seems a little stupid.
      Lou: But people standing around all day on water vapor. That's perfectly reasonable?
      Sean: Look, all I'm saying is that there is a heaven, okay? I've always believe that. What it is exactly, that's up to each individual person. You know? Like, my heaven, for example, I mean, there's clouds.
      Lou: We've established that.
      Sean: But there's a lot of downtime, y'know? And you can play video games all day. Oh, and the best part is, if you, like want a Mountain Dew or somethin', you don't have to go and get it and open the can, y'know? You just-- You think it, and then taste just...appears in your mouth, and you're quenched. You know, your thirst.

    • (After talking to Katy)
      Sean: You had to be there, Lou. It was eerie.
      Mike: Yeah spooky. Like in horror movies where the little girl's a total freak and kills everyone in the end.
      Sean: Yeah, and the way she was talking, uh, and her eyes. She didn't blink the entire time that we were with her.
      Mike: She didn't. I was watching.
      Lou: You know, guys, she's a little girl. Whose brother just died. She's dealing with it.

    • Katy: I miss my brother.
      Sean: Yeah, I'll bet. But you know what, Katy? You just uh... just gotta remember that you're gonna see him again someday, you know, up in heaven. (Katy is silent, Sean whispers to Mike) You gonna help me out here? Say somethin'. Say somethin'. Say somethin'!
      Mike: Um, see, Katy, um where he is right now, there's no pain. He's happy and he, um, doesn't remember anything about the accident. God makes that go away.
      Sean: Is that true?
      Mike: That's what I heard.
      Sean: Wow. Wow. (they turn their attention back to Katy) Listen, Katy, you just gotta remember that Connor's fine and you're gonna see him again.
      Katy: No, I won't.
      Sean: Yes, you will, sweetie. I promise.
      Katy: No, I won't, because there's no heaven.
      Mike: Of course there's a heaven, honey.
      Katy: Prove it. (Mike and Sean glance at each other, and whisper)
      Sean: You see, y-you just have to...believe.
      Katy: I do believe. I believe there's no heaven, just like there's no God. Human beings made those things up so we could feel special. More special than animals, or bugs, because we're scared. We need to think there's someone out there protecting us, watching over us. We're nothing. We come from dirt. We go back into the dirt.

    • Johnny (about Tommy): I hope to Christ he doesn't fall off the wagon.
      Uncle Teddy: I wouldn't blame the guy if he drove the wagon right through the liquor store window and drank the entire inventory.

    • Mickey (to Tommy): Oh, so, you feeling a little angry? Huh? You feeling a little hurt? You feeling betrayed? Well, congratulations, you're feeling, and you're feeling because you're sober!

    • (reception after the funeral)
      Maggie (to Tommy): Hey, is that... is that the Probie and Garrity? This party is like a goddman meat market.
