    I'd say Weeds is the best show I've seen on Showtime. If you missed it, you might check it out. It's a different type of show, a comedy. But, I thought it was much better than Sleeper Cell. I'd probably rate Huff and Dead Like Me as being better, too, but that's a closer call, to me.

    All that being said, I would watch a second season of Sleeper Cell if they do that.

    I haven't watched The L Word, but have heard good things about it.

    I wouldn't say "fell apart", but it was flat compared to the rest of the series/buildup. I expected a better finale myself...

    And yet, that is so true to life and shows how, in the midst of a panic situation, people are not paying attention to what they should be, especially basic first responders. It is actually an Al Qaeda technique used very effectively in many past attacks.

    Easy to do actually, the buildings were within hard wire range and the detonation control that the remote triggered was most likely in the shielded building wired to the C4 in the other.

    As stated earlier, I think Darwyn (who was excellent in this, btw) had serious remorse about taking down his 'brothers' who he considered, for the most part, just 'seriously misguided Muslims'

    That seems, again, typical of a US/FBI/Police response IMO.


    I agree it was flat, and I didn't like the way it ended myself, but for different reasons than these I guess :)

    She was the wife on the HBO mini-series Mind of the Married Man. Quite attractive, IMO :) Sonya Walger http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0907427/

    Do you mean what is the actress' real name? Ally Walker (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001824/) She was on Profiler IIRC..

    In all that confusion, he was only talking to her for 5 seconds and for all he knew, Farik had a backup, he couldn't be sure and they had to pursue immediately.

    I disagree, Sleeper Cell was much better than Weeds, but Weeds was good. The best Showtime series though has been Dead Like Me, brilliant show IMO.

    From what I've read, the ratings were abysmal, even by Showtime standards. Around 300,000 viewers for the finale and 200,000 on average. In contrast, Fat Actress premiered to 942,000 viewers (most of which it eventually lost).

    What I liked was the fact that they were not only terrorists, but master painters. What a job they did on the "emergency vehicle".

    Also liked the fact that Darwyn was able to go through a car window head first and still be able to break the French guys neck.

    But overall I enjoyed it.
