    It gives guy's like me hope when someone who looks like Ms. Shahi hooks up with a guy who looks like that.

    My recording cut out the ending. The last I saw was when the passenger recognized Crews as his driver. What happened next?

    The passenger (can't remember his name but he is played by William Atherton) was the wealthy real estate mogul who once had been an LAPD officer, one of the six that became five. He was in the photo of the funeral for the sixth cop who allegedly committed suicide.

    He says to Crews that he should start doing some charity work as his survival in prison is an inspiring story (he doesn't sound completely sincere). Meanwhile, Charlie drives him off route to a dark side street, stops, and turns off the ignition. Charlie begins talking ominously about the passenger's connections to the other cops, specifically Jack Reese, and the bank shoot-out and the missing millions, Charlie's murdered friends and his imprisonment.

    The passenger comments that "this looks like a kidnapping." Charlie demurs, going Zennish about there being no kids and no one is napping. The passenger breaks in and says "you misunderstand... this isn't a kidnapping, THIS is a kidnapping," whereupon a dark figure looms up beside the driver's window, smashes it, and grabs Charlie ... cut to black.

    People have noted that this development doesn't appear in the coming attractions for the next episode two weeks from now.

    I like the little touch that Crews would actually know what his partners gun looks like.

    The interplay between Crews and Bobby Starks vs Reese and Capt. Brian when they met up before busting the drug dealer was comic gold.

    Sarah Shahi blowing the powdered sugar off the table...man oh man. :)

    so how did the kidnappers know that crews would turn down that street? and how did the other guy know that the driver wouldnt be his own driver in the first place? That entire sequence is really unbelievable.

    and as much as i like the backstory moving forward, it always seems forced. Like we are watching a regular weekly series then all of a sudden the writer remembered oops, we better put in the main story in here somehow

    the romance thats budding is a real turn off. I much prefer the women's stories in The Unit to this.

    remind me who the redhead that was outside ted's class is

    The redhead outside Ted's class is Christina Hendricks, who guest-starred in some memorable episodes of Firefly, was a regular in the all-too-brief Taye Diggs law show "Kevin Hill," and most recently is a major character in "Mad Men". And she is smokin.

    It's been suggested that she would make an excellent Poison Ivy in any further adventures of the Dark Knight. I agree -- she would be much better than Uma Thurman was.

    She's not fat. She's just right.

    I like 'em slender and I like 'em curvy.

    Yes, by Hollywood standards Renée Zellwiger qualifies as zaftig. Or at least they hired her to play a zaftig woman in Brigit Jones' Diary with no apparent sense of irony.

    Then again, nobody ever said that Hollywood has a healthy attitude towards looks...as if you need further evidence, look at who plays the "plain friend" in just about any movie. Often a drop-dead gorgeous brunette wearing glasses.

    Yes, but she gained 25 pounds to play Bridget Jones. Where's the irony? Is it "ironic" that Christian Bale lost 60 pounds for his role in The Machinist?

    And I wouldn't call Bridget Jones "zaftig". Overweight, yes, but she's no...say...Camryn Manheim...

    The irony is that the 25 pounds she gained put her on the lighter side of average. But to hear her and the film's publicity folk tell it, she had become fat.

    I agree--she did. Just like Christian Bale's loss made him skinny.

    Life has the hottest cast of actresses going right now - certainly the hottest cast that is 25 or older. There's Sarah Shahi, Christina Hendricks (who I'd like to see much more of - and yes I mean that any way you want to interpret it), Charlie's ex-wife, aka the First Lady of San Francisco, and Connie the lawyer, who I've really missed. All top-flight talent.

    I liked what's-her-name the tall smokin hot psychiatrist in the episode about the spoiled rich kids that ended "Weekend with Bernie" style.

    Yeah, it seems in HW if you ain't skinny, you're fat. There is no healthy medium.
    But those glasses make 'em look so...uggh. Luckily, by the end of the movie, they've learned to take them off, toss their hair, put on a touch of makeup, and become smokin' hot. Who knew they had it in 'em? :D


    or Leah Rimini?
