Why is Dani involved with that douche? I don't understand this relationship at all. It's icky like the Lieutenant's swarmy mug.

I was distracted. Was the deputy the girl's father? Or was her mother white and that made her non-Native American?

I enjoyed the side stories. I liked the Native American deputy. The dinner scene was cute. Ted blurting out his feelings for Olivia. Rachel calling out Crews. And the best, "white people".

Okay. This is weird. I voted on the poll and when I clicked on the button it took me to THIS THREAD in Misc. From 2004!!!!

More naked Reese is a good thing. If you rent The L Word, you can see some Sarah Shahi girl-girl action.

Although you have to give some props also to Malaya Rivera Drew (possibly best known for her recurring role on ER):

All I've watched is the teaser, and already my brain is screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! It's just so gross!!! It doesn't fit last year's Dani at all! They have ZERO chemistry. I hate these writers. *pouts*

I may get back to the rest of the episode eventually. Right now I'm too ticked and too busy.

I felt the continuity police were missing this ep-who was Anna? Who were her parents? If I still have to ask after the ep-something is wrong.

But naked Reese had me sooo distracted I may have missed something. More naked Reese please!

I'm not sure what you're asking. Anna's father lied about them being Native Americans.

The resolution to the previous episode's "kidnapping" at the end was extremely lame.

I don't know if it's because I know this show's days are numbered or what, but I'm finding my interest waning. It might also be because of the Dani-Lt thing. That relationship is so stupid and unbelievable that it just ruins this show, IMHO.

Re: Life: "Evil... and His Brother Ziggy" 12/3 - Grading & Discussion

It just seems like all the charm of the first season has disappeared. They have hugely cheapened Dani's character this season, and I'm not just talking about Tidwell. Tidwell is more of a symptom than the problem. Dani is nothing more than a sex symbol now, and I'm embarrased for the actress as a result. Last year she was complex, complicated, both vulnerable and strong. The character has devolved into bait to attract horny teenagers to the show.

The conspiracy/frame story line has gone nearly nowhere, and certainly nowhere interesting. What happened to the conspiracy wall? Just because he found the killer doesn't mean all the progress he made last year is now irrelevant.

The show is still keeping my interest, but I'm sad to see the things that hooked me on this show just draining away. That said, I laughed out loud when Ted declared his love for Olivia over dinner. That whole scene was capped nicely by that admission. Rachel is a dull cliché, but Ted still delivers when they let him.

The William Atherton character is part of the conspiracy. It's possible he wants to spill his guts to Crews, based on that cliffhanger.

Oh, I know they're throwing a bone at the conspiracy each week, but there's nothing compelling in that story line at all. Charlie doesn't seem as engaged, as driven, as he was last season when he was pushing to find Rachel and the real killer.

I hate what they've done to Dani. She was so awesomely complex last season. This thing with Tidwell...well, I've said before that it's made me love her a lot less. The only way to redeem this sorry storyline is to make Tidwell part of the conspiracy. Since I doubt that's what's happening, I'm really disappointed in the writers.

The conspiracy storyline is a slow drip. They resolved it too quickly last season. I understand why. The show was on the bubble.

The dinner scene was great. "Indian food? I...picked up the closet menu."

That opening scene with Dani & Tidwell - and she pulled out those scissors and started talking about his hair - I just wanted to scream. This is NOT the way I wanted him to get a haircut! And even after it, he still looks just as greasy and disgusting as he did before. "You can take the guy out of the trailer park, but..."

Does it even matter that Indian food isn't Native American food, or is that part of the point?

^It's part of the joke. It's like Ted had made an attempt to make her feel at home but in a completely ignorant way. OR it's like Ted was trying to make a bad pun by ordering "indian" food for the "indian" cop. Either way, it was funny because it was unintentional.
