As the guy was heading into the bodega to get coffee, I was saying "No! Don't go there, they have horrible coffee!"
Well, he came out without the coffee he was making for himself as well as the tea he was supposed to get Khan, so I guess they're safe!
I hope they step up their game regarding social media--who uses Myspace anymore?
This, so much. Though perhaps it was the only social media thingy they could afford to mention - otherwise they'd have to make something up like Faceplace or Tweety or something ghastly like that.
As regards the show itself, I quite liked the pilot. Though with a disclaimer, that when we saw the opening shots, and I saw the characters preparing for the day, my first reaction was: Not fuckin' Leelee Sobieski! Nooooooo! Just can't stand her, don't like her affect, her slightly twitchy icequeeny waspiness that she brings to every role. And then Yoda says that they're too caught up in each other? Ugh. Yes, Leelee's milkshake brings ALL the boys to the yard.
I mean, there's only two women among the rookies, why does one of them (ok, the one I like least) have to be saddled with some crappy forbidden love shit?
I like Stark Sands, though, and Adam Goldberg, and Judy Marte, even though Sanchez did the dumbest thing of all, even compared to the other dumb things they did - walking in to a domestic all blithely assuming she could handle it. I don't know if it was The Shield or Southland which taught me this, but domestic disputes are the most volatile situation for a cop.
I like Khan a lot ("You have a big mouth, for a midget!"), and I hope he won't be all hotheaded and do something dumb as a reaction to being needled by those other cops.
I'll watch some more episodes, though I might go through Ice Queen's scenes at a faster than usual frame rate.
That final Adam Goldberg scene though, with Shamrock guy, I actually held my breath. Very well done.
