Re: Copper

The show hits Blu-ray on October 30. That's pretty fast for a show that's just ending its season.

Re: Copper

That might be worth getting, if it has a lot of cool extras.

eta: finally got around to watching last Sunday's episode. HOLY COW, Maguire is a good-looking lad. YOWZA.

I loved the line "Hey, this is a brothel. People are trying to concentrate!"

So...it's over between Corky and Mrs. Haverford. Ah well. I think Robert is a better fit for her, anyway. And what exactly is that "Greek fire" stuff? Gasoline and sulfur? Or some phosphorus combination? I know nearly nothing about chemistry.

Darn it. I still have yet to watch this. Must get around to it soon; I love this show.

Neither did I! It seems everyone lies to Corky, even his good friends.

Re: Copper

Yeah, wow. That was unexpected.

I like the historical reference in this episode (Civil War, Boss Tweed). There was also a Homicide: Life on the Street reference (a fake name for voter fraud was Tim Bayliss).

Re: Copper

Heh. I heard that name "Tim Bayliss," and it sounded familiar but I couldn't figure out why. Thanks

Re: Copper

lol, no problem.

The weird thing about Corky's wife is that I was expecting certain outlandish things, but this one still caught me by surprise. It was impressive and layered (the fact that his friend was lying works on top of it and I didn't see that at all).

Re: Copper

OK, finally caught this one. VERY good ending, with it being his wife who Francis Maguire was visiting. I had a feeling that SHE was the one who killed her daughter, and that was why she fled. Now we see she didn't actually "flee" at all. I like Little Brynes--er, "Phinbar." I hope they keep him around a little while longer.

Re: Copper

And things are come to a head with his wife's story.



Aside from that, some good themes. Nice contrast of God, heaven, hell, and Five Points.

They are really wrapping everything aren't they? I had expected some of the subplots/mysteries to be series-long. Apparently, that's not the not the case, however.

Re: Copper

I think the next big story is the Civil War saboteurs. Although, with the introduction of the Booth brothers, that might rap up soon.

Re: Copper

The DVD comes out in a couple of weeks so I'm thinking the season is almost over.
