Subject: It's interesting how everyone sees everything so differently...I love the chemistry between DJE and VM (Inside)...

In fact, I find their relationship the only interesting thing about the show. It's clear to me they still love each other, but I wonder how functional that relationship is, and if you peel back everything else, is it really one that works. Their interactions make it clear it's not really that happy, and I just enjoy the sort of undertone to it.

Unfortunately, for me, the rest of the show lacks way too much. You can see the lines coming from miles away and the characters are too cliched. Not that that's always bad, because sometimes those cliches work, but for me they don't work with this group. Plus, they keep saying the characters are so quirky, but that comes organically, not from beating us over the head with it, especially when the characters aren't all that quirky so much as stereotyped.

I like the premise of the show, and feel it has great potential, but for some reason it isn't working. I think it's gotten better than the first one, but still not enough. I don't see it lasting past summer, but it was nice to see DJE as someone other than Harm.

[> [> Chief, you want Wolf to be the one going straight? You just can't see Harm in this role.LOL Inside... -- judi, 17:29:53 07/22/10 Thu [1]

But it's not Harm. It's DJE. This is not a mafia show or a a normal family. It's about a family of small time criminals. They do break the law but don't physically hurt other people. Wolf is the most crooked char of all and doesn't like Logan because he did go straight. Most families have the black sheep, the bad kid - not the good kid but this isn't an ordinary family. The kids may be stereotypes, but I've yet to find a show that isn't. It is offbeat and while it's not my favorite show, I do like it and will keep watching it despite the tattoos.

Oh and one complaint, when Logan was at work, his co-worker called Wolf white trash. That is a problem. DJE doesn't look like white trash at all. He looks like he could be a lawyer or pilot. LOL They should have trashed up his appearance more then just giving him a few tatts.

[> [> [> No, I was just saying that because it would be more interesting and less stereotypical... heck it was just the fumbling musings of a confused fan... (inside) -- The Chief, 20:24:33 07/22/10 Thu [1]

I guess I was trying to draw upon the "honor among thieves" adage, that doesn't seem to apply to the West family. Sure they have a "brand standard", but they don't support each other like I would suspect. I dunno. It just seems as if the clarinet section is pitchy.... or something.

And yeah, DJE is way too clean cut for this show. A goatee, longer hair, maybe a scar or a tooth missing... something. (all costumed, of course). He does look like he could be a pilot or a lawyer or a CIA agent or a crop duster....
