    Umm...I think they needed a TV-MA because of the language.

    This is a good show. Of course, I am a man of that same certain age, but the references are fabulous. "who are you, Mannix?"

    We've been watching it. I don't care for Bakula's character that much - I hope he gets some depth eventually.

    Yah, I really like it. On the previous episode, I was thinking the whole time, his check is going to be s**t. Funny how that works out.

    I thought that was kinda the point of his character, but I know what you mean.

    We're watching and enjoying it too. Maybe we should start putting up episode threads?

    Can't believe how Andre Braugher looks without a shirt nowadays - think it might be a prosthetic gut (and moobs)? :)

    I'd certainly participate, but it's a different type of show. Not too dramatic, the story arcs aren't as big. It's more episodic. I like it. :)

    Thought it was going to be a buddy caper tv version of 'Hangover' from the commercials but I like it nonetheless. Maybe change the title to season long thread? Doubt there is another interest in weekly EPs.

    Yeah should be season long thread.

    Was wondering if anyone else was watching it.

    I love it, but it is very slow paced and extremely subtle.

    I deleted my season pass last night. It's just too depressing. There was an occasional inspired moment but they were too few and far between.

    I'm enjoying it too. I have not had a chance to see the last episode but it is waiting for me when I have time to sit and watch it.

    I'm enjoying it...

    So, Ray has a gambling addiction that he has lost his wife over and he still playing? I wonder, if he will end up getting beat at work by the bookie...

    Not only that, but he's blurring the lines. He's hanging out with the bookie and becoming his buddy, getting ADVICE from him. This can't end well.

    I forgot it came on last night. I just watched it.

    Yea, that has problems written all over it.

    That was a nice blow to Joe...

    This thread gives me hope! I figured I was the only one watching and would probably get 4 or 5 episodes before it was gone; but sounds like there are some others out there too.

    Yeah it's a little slow, not really deep, episodic, and pretty much the opposite of most things I watch these days - but that's what makes it refreshing. And that style of story telling works with the characters and the stories themselves.

    Thank You. I'd say that to my wife, but she'd just complain that I accuse US TV of copying everything.

    Still, I think that it is funny that Manchild was offered to the US but was turned down only for this to appear a few years later.
