6/10

My favorite line: "Sorry to bother you at a time like this. We would have come earlier but your husband wasn't dead then."  :laugh:

And there is the now classic: "Cigeratte?" - "Yes, I know"

The "Twice"-"Once" scene was also quite funny  :)

Ed: "Sergeant, take her away and book her!"
Frank: "Sergeant Takheraway." <shakes hand> "Sergeant Booker" <shakes hand>

I won't participate in this rerun marathon because I'm running out of time but when I return from NY City in November you can count me in for other ones.

Nope. Like I said, I will watch it. Maybe tonight, but it'll most probably be tomorrow.

You can still post your rating for the current episode each week. I will tell no one that you "cheated" if you won't   :laugh:

Finally got around to watch the episode!

7/10

It's a good intro to the series. Of course it ended lasting only 6 episodes, but so what? They were 6 good episodes!

Sadly, I don't have much to add over Tom's review. My favorite line was the same as his
"Sorry to bother you at a time like this. We would have come earlier but your husband wasn't dead then."

Another one I like
Ed - "... but how did you know she handled the loan office heist?"
Frank - "Just a little hunch back at the office."
Ed - "Thought so. I brought that little hunchback with me. Charlie, come out here!"  :laugh:
