    He should be a positive addition to the show. Character is better than on Gothem. Always liked his work on Grounded for Life.

    The discussion of him yesterday got me to search for Grounded for Life streaming. Amazon Prime has it and I watched the first 3 episodes of that show last night. I think it holds up. Plus, they must have shot it on film, because it looks like good quality. 30 year old Megyn Price in HD is easy on the eyes.

    At least she didn't get her head bashed in during the third episode.

    I've liked Donal Logue since Terriers.

    I didn't watch Terriers, which seems to be a big mistake, as it's only talked about in reverence. He played a great role in Life, one of the most under-rated and killed-too-early series ever. :( Damian Lewis, Sarah Shahi, Adam Arkin, Donal Logue, Robin Weigert, Titus Welliver, Christina Hendricks, Garret Dillahunt and too many more to list. :eek:

    I can't believe the writer doesn't know how the word RIP applies to basketball.

    For those who don't know... if you hit a good shot, where the ball doesn't hit the rim at all, the net absorbed all of the energy. The longer the shot is, like the half court one described in the article, the more energy the ball is putting on the net. Do it thousands of times, and the net will be ripped (as seen in many outdoors public parks).

    In the author's defense, I've been an avid basketball fan for 50 years and have never heard that explanation before.

    And also in the author's defense, the guy who coined the phrase doesn't know what it means!

    The first time I was in Portland the one thing that got my attention was that they probably had more topless joints than any city I've ever been in. We stopped in a bowling alley and the female bartender was topless. This was about 19 years ago so I'm not sure if anything has changed. I was thinking they should have nicknamed it Boobtown.

    I'm really liking this show. great acting, great characters and a great story line with intertwining case of the week(s) and the ongoing issues with Grey. This is quickly becoming my favorite of the new season.

    I like how the show is throwing me in a loop...

    Donal Logue is playing a straight-lace detective, as opposed to Dex's unconventional ways.

    Donal Logue is playing a sleazy detective, and Dex will have to battle him for the whole season.

    Donal Logue is playing a sweet, out-of-his luck detective, and is helping Dex as she gets her hours.

    Donal Logue is just a guest star for only a few episodes.

    I should stop guessing about the show's formula.

    Is there any chance his lying about the hours she's put in will come back to bite her? ;)

    I bet Catherine Manheim will be puzzled by it.

    Can an ex-con get a liquor license?

    In NYC if you payoff the right people anything is possible. Don't know about Stumptown, but I am sure in any big city it is about the same.

    I was disappointed with where they went with Donal Logue's character. That redemption arc was so cheap and easy, and predictable. I was hoping for something with a bit more weight or edge. Too bad.

    Agree- and I also thought the Tapper storyline also wrapped up way too neat and easy, if that is the right word I am looking for...….

    Always thought from the beginning that this would be a much better show on Netflix/Hulu/Amazon- I may be in the minority but last couple of episodes are starting feel like a "network" show- which is not a good thing.....
