    New USA show. Watched it last night looking for Serinda Swan ( Breakout Kings) but she wasn't listed. Depending on what site you visit, she is a series regular and credited in every episode, or she is recurring and on 3 episodes.

    Good summer show.

    I didn't even make it to the halfway mark.

    SP deleted.

    I too was rather unimpressed. I'll give it another chance, but so far, not so good.

    This.

    I figured it was typical USA network summer lite TV. But several reviewers were majorly happy with it, so I thought I'd give it a try.

    Hard to believe they watched what I watched.:rolleyes:

    You might as well change this to a Season Thread, cause there is no way you need eps threads for this show.:p

    I read somewhere else that Graceland was described as being more like Romper Room than a serious show about law enforcement professionals. A bit harsh, but in general, that's kind of the way I saw it. Pilots are notorious for sometimes being poor examples of a series, so as I said, I'll give it a second chance.

    It got better towards the end. I don't like the main premise revealed at the end though.

    I wasn't terribly moved one way or the other, but given the tendency of pilots not to be fully-formed and this being summer, I'll give it at least another week.

    I thought it was ok so I'll give it a couple more episodes.
    It's very different, but it reminded me a lot of Suits.

    Agree. It was almost enough to make me kill the SP, except...

    ... this.

    To me the show was trying too hard to be like the other "edgy" crime shows, like Breaking Bad, The Wire and that ilk. Since I'm not a fan of those shows, I watched through the end (admittedly, I fell asleep in the middle), and I deleted the SP.

    And on the reveal at the end, I saw that coming a mile away. And it's been done to death.

    What other shows has that scenario been used on? It seems familiar, but I can't think of one right off hand.

    Where someone was told to spy on their boss?

    The one where it was the core of the show was that Dirty Dancing guy cop show, that ended because the actor died.

    (Not having a good name day, am I?)

    What you were talking about that's been used to death.

    Since this is an episode thread it's ok to discuss the reveal where Mike is asked by FBI boss to report on the "Rescue Me" dude, who's appearently in charge of the house. Basically it's been done. Off the top of my head, I can't think of specifics, but I think shows like 24 has had characters that reported to someone higher about the bosses, and I'm sure others.
