Christian Slater was strangely not-insane and I liked it, I like the ex but hate the young girlfriend, but the big question for me was: Is Steve Zahn’s character supposed to be odd or something? He seemed perfectly normal to me, though he gave up on picking up the marbles* too easily. And I know that he did because, though my thumb was on the remote as soon as I figured out it would fall and break and make a mess, I sat through it and even watched it! Didn’t close my eyes or nothin’. Can’t say the same when they were about to break something on a Modern Family rerun that was on earlier. I mean, unlike Clark I take my meds, but a guy can only put up with so much shit from his TV. But despite taking it up a notch or two I was comfortable with how Zahn played it. Daughter was impressed that everybody was dressed for a Chicago Season-That-Isn’t-Summer, with lots of layers, but Slater’s scarf was too short to wear it like he did.
Usual spoiler rules apply: Give people a day to catch up with their VDRs. Don’t bother spoilering things that were given away in the previews or stupid incidental shit like the marbles thing or characters who are not long for this series like the girlfriend, if there’s a God in Heaven, though I think we’re stuck with her. Hell, with a 1.1 in the overnights I don’t think anybody’s long for this series. It’s more USA than ABC, but it gives Zahn’s career a boost.
- He had lost his marbles. Get it? Huh? His marbles? Yuk, yuk, yuk! :rolleyes:
