Brief spoilers for last night's "The Beast" coming up just as soon as I get some prison ink...
I'm still waiting for this show to rise up to the level of Patrick Swayze's performance, and it's still not coming close. The case of the week was slightly less predictable than the one from episode two, but it gave way too much of the episode's screentime to Travis Fimmel and barely dealt with the larger question of whether Barker's dirty and in what way.
Also, from a more superficial standpoint, I prefer seeing (but not living in) Chicago in winter rather than the warm climate that we've reached by this point in the production. Still lots of cool architecture, but not quite as distinctive without tons of snow on the ground.
I'm in for a little while, still, because shows like this can take a while to find themselves, but I keep having to recalibrate my hopes downward.
What did everybody else think?
