    I thought it was obvious that Mike was there because of Briggs when Briggs was snooping through Mike's papers that read "Emergency Placement: Graceland" with Briggs listed as the training agent. We already knew that Mike expected to be in DC but was reassigned at the last minute, so there was no reason to tell us again unless it was about the person looking at the papers.

    I'm not sure about this show.

    Would undercover agents really spend that much time in a police station walking around with FBI jackets?

    I guess I expected them to be deep undercover - living an entire assumed identity undercover. But it seems like they assume different covers based on the case, like what they do on Burn Notice. Which makes it less interesting to me. Why would they need to live in a fancy beach house with each other if they aren't maintaining a prolonged cover? It just seems dumb.

    The two leads are handsome and charismatic. I might give it one more episode.

    Totally agree. The whole concept of being undercover, yet hanging around at bars, at the beach, different identities made up on the spot... ridiculous. And now they're going deep under with some serious drug lords. Beyond preposterous.

    But it's mildly entertaining, so I keep watching. I'm finding my standards are embarrassingly low this summer. I finally had to kill Sinbad this weekend. Perhaps the worst acting of any regular series I've watched in a while. But why did it take me 4 or 5 episodes? :eek:

    I just watched the Graceland pilot.

    Nobody mentioned that they're trying too hard to go for the "he/she's so dreamy" audience.

    Nice to see that Dutch is getting more work from USA. They must have him under contract.

    The droopy eyelid "Charlie" girl kinda turned me off and turned me on. You just know she'll look pretty bad as she ages, where she won't need the mascara to look burned out. She looks a bit like "Butterface Dottie" from Shameless.

    In other words, nobody mentioned that this is 21st-century American television? ;)

    I watched the entire 2nd episode of Graceland.

    I won't be watching any more.
