Yeah, this show is so good it hurts.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

It really is. I find myself each week almost preparing for the 'let down'....but it has yet to do so. I hope that stays true. I think we've only scratched the surface on this story and that is awesome.

I agree with the bolded especially. This season they are continuing to add new layers to the story as well.

Elliot just can't seem to escape trouble.  :lol   Interested to see how he gets out of this one.

I'm really starting to like the FBI chick as well. Neat character...who almost seems like she'd take Elliots side with the right persuasion.

I don't think there is any doubt that it's the best show currently airing.

Yeah, that was sweet. They always seem to surprise me with things like that on this show. I'm glad it switched when it did though, I don't think an entire episode of that would have been smart. This was brilliant though.

this show is insane. I'm really curious as to how Elliot is going to get out of his current predicament. I can't imagine he lets them slide.

Also, WTF did the Dark Army do to that dudes finger? Did they inject him with something or just drive a needle under his fingernail for tortures sake?

Not sure, my wife and I were discussing that as well. I assumed they injected him with something, but then he showed up a few scenes later to give Angela the backpack, so I'm not sure. Something else this show could reveal in time.

I thought they stuck the needle in his finger and then broke it off.

I'm not reading this thread to avoid spoilers...

We watched two episodes tonight and half way through the second episode Mrs. P said, "This is Fight Club for dorks!" I love my wife, she is so smart!  :hefdaddy

Just caught this week's episode. LOVED the intro sequence. This is getting crazy.

Well, crazier.

Looked to me like the needle went into his fingertip rather than directly under the nail, but maybe that's just a result of angling and/or whatever trick they used to make it (I'm assuming retracting needle, but maybe it was a prosthetic hand, or both). Not really interested in pausing it for a screencap. :lol

I've only been half-enjoying this season tbh. It just seems to be going nuts for the sake of going nuts, rather than moving toward some overarching point... which was what made the first season so interesting. Then again, I dunno how anyone could follow up that first season with something equally good, so they sorta doomed themselves right off the bat.

This is how my wife has reacted to the second season so far. I have been loving it, she has been wanting a little more focus.

He didn't inject him with anything. Just broke the needle off in his finger tip, not under the nail. Ouch!

I feel differently from the rest of you. The first 20 mins of the episode was agony for me. I couldn't wait for it to end. It was cool what they were going for, and I appreciate that, but just didn't fit for me. The entire part could be summed up in two sentences. The rest of the episode was awesome! I loved the style of the following camera with the music that gave certain parts an old like 70s crime drama feel.

I suspect that they did inject him, and that it was with something they could use to track him to where Darlene & co were hiding.

If they did actually inject him, it was a glaring inconsistency. When he stuck the needle in his finger, the plunger was all the way down/in.

I don't think they injected him. Piercing that nerve under the nail is a well known torture technique. I think it was just a cause pain thing, something they didn't even plan to do until the dude started asking questions.

This was my thought being that the needle was prepped and in a pretty secure case.

I love the musical direction of this show, great song choices throughout.

Why would they use a needle though, particularly one kept in a secure box of some kind.

I also thought for a moment that they were going to shoot him up to where he OD'd and died....for being out of line.

While good, I think I'll have to wait until next week's episode to truly evaluate this one. I think I need a little bit more information here.

Yeah....so do I, but it was still a great episode.




SPOILERZ....



I'm assuming that Ray was the Warden of the Corrections Facility? And his 'crew' must have been the prison guards? And, I'm at a loss trying to figure out 'why' Elliot was even there? Had he been caught for the hack he'd never get out and plus the news thinks Tyrell did it. Was he there voluntarily?
