    So the predicable show, the last dying breath of USA's "Characters Matter" lineup carries on.

    I wish they had jumped ahead in time a bit. The same terrible writing is still around, where the characters yell for each other for thirty seconds as if every conversation is the most important thing ever to happen. The problem in any yelling match is then resolved by a subsequent yelling match a few minutes later.

    Mike made a mistake in prison that could have been seen coming from a thousand miles away. For a really smart guy like Mike, a conman himself, to act so dumb in prison is rather absurd.

    yeah, watching just because I've watched since the beginning at this point. I kind of hope they call it a day after this season

    Season 6 is gearing up to be a version of Shawshank Redemption. The movie was already mentioned in the season premiere so I think it's more than just a passing mention. Mike will probably get his ass kicked for a while and then start helping the inmates with their appeals. What better place for him to be a lawyer illegally than in prison?

    I would have made the same mistake Mike made in prison. Who would have thought his new roommate would cozy up to him to get blackmail info on Harvey? Not me.

    this +1

    the scenes in the first episode with them arguing in the office were way stupid.

    i am hoping Mike gets raped in prison - that would make it worth watching :eek:

    aw c'mon Mike needs some good Oz-like scenes.
    Where's Chris Meloni and JK Simmons when you need them?

    I didn't see the Harvey angle, but I was definitely suspect of the "cellmate" when he was so open on the first night, and then I knew there was some kind of scam going on when he offered the use of the phone and kept pushing it. I figured it was just a trick by the guards to see if they could get him to break the rules (by using the phone) right off the bat and then they could punish him.

    All the stuff in the office so far the first two episodes has been beyond ludicrous. Get served with a lawsuit at midnight and settle it the next morning? Please. :rolleyes:

    Jessica knew she couldn't personally give money to Soloff because it would open up the firm to a piercing the corporate veil charge. But then she personally "loans" money to Zane to give to Soloff right in front of Soloff and openly says that she's fine if she never gets paid back? Please. :rolleyes:

    I'm pretty sure that Mike's cellmate is a dead man walking.

    I guess I'm in the minority, I've liked both episodes so far this season. It's got to be tough keeping a show going this long and try to find the right balance of shaking things up so it doesn't get boring, but not shaking things up too much to annoy people.

    I didn't say I disliked the episodes. I've always found the legal stuff in this show to be fairly ridiculous, and these last two episodes were even more ridiculous than usual.

    The legal issues are not the only thing that is ridiculous.

    Mike has been a complete moron, over and over. Most recently, when the guard walked in just in time to keep him from getting stabbed, how stupid do you have to be to not tell the guard that Gallo has a knife on him and was about to stab Mike? That would definitely get Gallo out of there, and the no snitch rule hardly applies when the guy you are "snitching" on was about to have two other guys hold you while he stabbed you.

    Gallo might (probably) would have been disciplined for having the shiv, but 1. he's already shown that he has some of the guards in his back pocket, 2. even if he gets sent to solitary for a few weeks, he'll be back at some point and will be a danger to Mike, and 3. the accomplices would spread the word that Mike is a snitch, and then Mike's life in prison will be even more of a living hell than it already was.

    Bottom line: you don't snitch unless you can be 100% certain that nobody will find out who snitched and/or you can be certain that the person you snitched on will never have any way to retaliate against you. Mike didn't have either of those assurances, so he was smart to keep his mouth shut.

    Nope. That's absurd. It was incredibly stupid to not tell the guard that Gallo had a knife. Mike was seconds away from being stabbed. You don't let someone who is about to stab you get away because of some vague rule about not snitching.

    Besides, Gallo would have been out of there and back at a maximum security prison as soon as he was found with a knife, let alone being caught about to stab someone. He might be able to bribe some of the guards, but obviously he does not have all of them in his pocket, and getting caught with a knife in the middle of an assault on an inmate is not something that he can cover up. And even if Gallo could cover it up (which is ridiculous to believe), just letting an honest guard know (and also Mike should tell his counselor) would be enough to protect Mike, since while some guards might be willing to take a bribe, they would not be foolish enough to let a prisoner -- who had already reported an assault with a knife -- get seriously injured while they were supposed to be watching. That would lead to an investigation and then their cozy bribe situation would go away, and possibly get them fired and/or prosecuted.

    Mike will be running the prison in about three episodes.

    I'm not going to argue with you about this. Let's just say I strongly disagree and leave it at that.

    Naturally, since what Mike did is completely ridiculous and there is no reasonable argument to the contrary.

    I'm Mike and I just want to be stabbed! I'll let it happen as soon as Gallo wants to try again! Wheeee!

    I know two guys that have been to prison. Not jail, prison. Both of them were very clear that snitching was a very, very bad thing to do in prison. I believe them.

    Do you know any guys who have been stabbed repeatedly with a knife or shiv? How many very's do they put before bad when they describe the experience?

    Or if they died, how many very's is that worth?

    The thing you need to understand is that snitching usually means telling that someone has contraband in their cell, or maybe telling that someone punched you or whatever.

    Telling the guards about being held by two guys while a third is about to stab you with a knife is not snitching. It is self defense.
