    I've gotta say, this is the first show in awhile I've actually thought about after the fact. Wondering who's really allied with whom and such. I don't know why but it's sticking with me.

    I caught up with this show last week. I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would. I'm glad they will be airing a new episode each week for the rest of the season. My Mondays are full now with this show and a couple of shows from SyFy.

    You know what I don't need or want to see on tv (or think kids should be exposed to - and please, let's not say the show airs at 10:00 and kids shouldn't be watching - we all know better)? Animals being tortured and / or killed. IMO it has no place on television.

    HUGE turnoff.

    Wouldn't any kind of torture be a turn off? Why only animals?

    Plus there wasn't any torture of animals being shown was there? Wasn't it just psychological?( I don't call an animal being put in a jar with the lid on for a split second torture)(that is all that was really shown wasn't it?)

    Perhaps it's to provide an unequivocal glimpse into the psychopathic tendencies of a character on the show. It's hardly been presented in any way to glorify it. And when it was discovered generated a very universal disdain amongst all the non-psychopathic characters on the show.

    It's shock value.

    Since we can't have nipples and explicid sex, this is what we are left with.

    Complain to your Senator. :D

    On second thought, don't. They will take away the violence and then we will have nothing. TV will be boring. :(

    I used to read Sepinwall's reviews all the time. It's been a while since I've really cared since 70% of his reviews seem to be for half hour comedy shows that I don't watch.
