Not S.H.I.E.L.D., mind you. This is the first one. The dirty cop one. The one that seems to have spawned most of the good things in television these days (the ones that are up and coming, at any rate - Kurt Sutter of Sons of Anarchy and Mazzarra of Walking Dead both started here, and, you know, Terriers came after). I'm already through the fifth episode of the second season, so we won't be LPing this (if we insist, I've still got The Wire kiestered, since I figured I'd save that for later - maybe June), but it's too good for me not to talk about it from time to time, so I guess maybe I should put it in a place where other people can laugh at me and/or enjoy it or chime in or whatever the hell. Two things have occurred to me thus far in the second season (which has been neatly compartmentalized from the first in a way that other shows could learn from): 1. Okay. This is admittedly stupid, but who the hell moves to Los Angeles to be a policewoman (Catherine Dent, who isn't named Lucy and deserves to be referred to by her name and not as Vick's Side Piece, but I'm blanking)? I'm kind of hoping we get some exposition on that. 2. Can somebody tell me why we're still having problems with Armadillo? Shouldn't Squad have just killed him in the first place after shit got out of hand? Particularly given the fact that the guy that the show has gone out of the way to show is the biggest pussy of the lot has called for it. And, as a general comment, I am absolutely baffled at how well this show and these writers and this cast have gotten me to care about Vick Mackey. That's impressive. Again, shows could stand to learn from this. For one thing, giving him villains who are unquestionably worse than he is thus far (I'm not sure how well they can keep it up - I mean, they already had to reach all the way to baby rapist at the top of the second season, though I'm guessing the mob will start to play a bigger role) was a pretty good call. So who else loves this and/or wants me to shut up about a show that's been off the air for a plural number of years?
