    Just now heard Regina King interviewed on an overnight radio show (not the one with bigfoot) and recorded if anyone's interested. Audio only, using YouTube just makes it easy to embed. Couple tidbits in there about what to expect this season.

    I have started watching every season and then lost interest. I'm going to try again. I just can't seem to get interested in this show.

    I think they try to be honest to the job, then someone goes back and sprinkles in stuff to 'TV it up'. For example, Lucy Liu's character was fine for the most part, even poignant, and then made ridiculous when the foodie thread was overplayed.

    It was a fine episode right up until it tried to be 'The Simpsons'.

    Last night's ep was one of the best of the series, I thought. No high speed chases, nor O.K. Corral style gunfights, probably pretty boring to the general viewer. Instead it starts with the distribution of 'Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement', soon followed by the rookie mocking it, and in the third act the need for such a book, a support structure, a way of coping becomes manifest with a reminder of bad ways to cope from a more senior character.

    It is a TV drama, gotta cut them some slack for being a bit convenient (the lack of a lunchtruck story was a relief!).

    This thread hasn't caught the world on fire, but on the off chance the series writers read O/R, if only for narcissistic purposes, I wanted to give a kudo, and if anyone else watched it see what you thought. I follow Southland with Justified on Tuesdays, with the latter being pure old fashioned cowboys and indians rollicking nonsense fun. It reminds me of people here not at all, except Bob Loblaw's hat collection. To be reminded of topics brought up by real cops about real issues was appreciated by this civ viewer.

    Still enjoying the series. It's still doing a good job of balancing drama and reality. And sometimes, making me think...

    The show does a good job of mixing in current issues and of showing the ways of thinking, behind all the decisions that officers make. It shows the complexity of what makes different officers tick. I like that the show is a little more cerebral than the average cop show. I just wonder how the show is really seen from the average civilian's point of view. And civilians that hang out on O/R don't count. hehehe I see the show as one that shows civilians why things are how they are, but I don't know if the average person sees it that way or not.
    CHIRP! CHIRP!
