  • Pretty Damn Good show Too bad about the Ratings

    9.5
    I feel sorry for the actors and writers of this show. this show is pretty awesome in its own way and has been getting better.

    The issue about a death row inmate trying to die in a way that will allow him still be able to donate his heart was most riveting. 'Sometimes the law is really an ass' was really true for this episode ,but the inmate finally found a way to die and still give his heart. Juliette Lewis (who I always liked until this show ) was not so annoying in her ' bimbo' act. The only thing was Mitch's annoying wife has left her job to become a full time member of The Firm( oh the horror!)

    I felt for Mitch's brother and I see a divorce sometime in the future for him.

    All in all an interesting episode. Too bad the ratings don't really do justice to this show. Hope they finish the storyline or shop this to Cable to continue because this show doesn't deserve to be off air( The 2 female characters not withstanding)moreless

    • Jim Thorne: (handing Mitch a magazine) It's an article about the man I killed. His name: Tom Bower. That's his wife and daughter. She's dying, heart disease. Got me thinking.
      Mitch: Thinking what?
      Jim Thorne: How the end of my road is right around the corner. Something good could come from my execution.
      Mitch: I'm listening.
      Jim Thorne: She needs a heart. Just so happens I won't be needing mine much longer.
      Mitch: You want to donate your heart to your victim's daughter?
      Jim Thorne: That's right.

    • Jim Thorne: I'm not asking for forgiveness, I'm not asking for anything. I was a terrible man, I've been a terrible prisoner, I never did one damn good thing in my life. So if I can do one good thing with my death. I'm not saying that it makes it right, I'm just saying, maybe it makes it a little less wrong. Can you help me with that?

    • Abby: It's just a house, Ray.
      Ray: She told you.
      Abby: She loves you. And I, I get it. You guys had a deal and a life that you built together and now she wants to change it.
      Ray: I don't.
      Abby: Well, it happens. People change, Ray. That's love, that's marriage. All those things you don't want to be, that guy, that static cliche in the suburbs, all of that is within your control.
      Ray: Control - not exactly what I'm best at - right?
      Abby: A house isn't going to make you someone you're not. It's just going to make you someone who loves someone.
