    I thought this episode was well written. We got to see how mess up Sammy's relationship with his wife really is.



    Also how Lydia cares about solving her cases. She seemed troubled at first. Maybe some commitment issues but maybe just fear of rejection when guys find about what she does for a living.



    The series has just only begun. So far we have an ensemble cast with intriguing and different background with multiple plots going on at the same time.

    It can be very interesting but also troublesome to keep track like Heroes was at first.



    Anyways, I got no complaints here. So far, so good. Keep'em coming!!



    Cheers!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Sammy: Everything all right?
      Nate: Yeah, man, yeah. It's just my sister. She keeps driving my parents crazy. They never know where she's going or who she's going with.
      Sammy: It's what teenagers do, remember?

    • Nate: I took my boys out to lunch the other day, right, and, uh... Petey starts horsing around, juggling meatballs up in the air. My little guy hates to be upstaged by his brother so he takes his peas and starts shoving them up his nose. (laughs) So now it's official. The Moretta boys are banned from Denny's for life.(laughs)

    • Cathleen Kerik: Okay. What is it exactly that you don't like about me?
      Lydia Adams: I don't like the fact that if this girl was found in an alley in Brentwood, this would be front-page news. I don't like that there's a backlog of rape DNA of 3,000 cases. I don't like the skirt you wear. I don't like your hairstyle. I don't like that every time a man is within 15 feet of you, you push out your chest and your voice gets all kittenish.

    • Kenny No-Gun: Ya know, from the rope we'll be able to tell what the guy's into. If it's nylon, it's boating. If it's polyester, it's shipping. Polyprolene, fishing. Ya know, some rope is sensitive to the cold and another deteriorates under UV light, so... (detectives stare in amusement) ...my Sex Crimes days.
      Det. Andy Williams: I take back everything bad I said about you.
      Kenny No-Gun: Thank you.

    • Opening Voiceover: Dead unidentified female victims in Los Angeles are often called "Sally in the Alley." Our detectives wanted to give this one a name.
