    I'm pretty sure they had left Montreal by then. Just the meeting at the restaurant took place there, the fundraiser was in New York.

    Ok this part I did like. Don't worry about the box, let the fiance bring it up if he ever does.

    I am really enjoying this show. But yes, yelling "FBI" in Montreal and also giving a $100 tip to the waiter in US dollars was another good one. Why didn't they just go to Chicago or something?

    It's kinda ridiculous, but I enjoy it. I like the dynamic between the characters. I like spader's acting (so not what I'm used to from him)


    I'm waiting to see if red escaping custody is intended to happen as often as South Park killing Kenny. I wonder if they'll have him on a tighter leash in Episode 3.

    The most absurd part of it is that he seems to know about attacks down to the minute, while seemingly being out of contact and allegedly not using email, phone, or other communication methods. I would think a master criminal's information would quickly become stale.

    There is no way he is the dad because they would have ran DNA first thing. I think in someway he knows her dad or her mom and owes them a favor. Not really sure but I kind of keep thinking of the James, Lily, Snape triangle.

    What does "run DNA" mean here? You think they would have put his DNA into the system and done a cross-comparison against all known DNA entries in order to check for familial similarities? That makes no sense to me.

    The last time we were in Canada we could use US money to pay for stuff. I didn't really think anything was weird about giving him free money in US dollars.

    I think when he turned himself in and asked for Lizzie at that point not knowing their connection and knowing she does not her know her father that protocol would dictate that they do DNA test on both of them.

    I'm pretty sure a Canadian waiter would accept a $100 USD tip. :rolleyes:

    I didn't expect to like this show, but so far I do. Most of that is due to Spader's excellent acting in this role. I wish the female lead didn't look like a beauty pageant contestant, though.

    Wow you think she is that pretty? I think she is average at best. I think Kerry Washington or Marg Helgenberger are/were way more attractive.

    I wasn't really commenting on how pretty she is, more that she sometimes has the look of a beauty pageant contestant.

    :D

    Like I said, it has nothing to do with how attractive she is. It's her look. For me, she just looks a bit too perfect and put together to be believable in that role. She looks like she should be on a soap opera, not playing an FBI agent. I'll probably get used to it.

    I think it's her hair maybe. Which may or may not be a wig... some of those scenes it didn't look real. :)

    Her hair was much shorter when she was on Blue Bloods.

    I understand your point although her looks aren't distracting to me. But I'm a girl, so....

    The Brits more often than not select everyday female leads (Torchwood, Survivors, etc.) and I prefer that in shows like this. (I admit to being a hypocrite when it comes to male leads. :) )

    Didn't her husband comment on her look in the pilot? After they woke up late and they were going out the door? Of course, he didn't know that she actually had several professional hair and makeup people working on her for an hour or two... :D

    This week, when she got up out of the bed, her face was fully made up. :D
