Being first and foremost a Lostie, I guess I'm used to having a place to debrief with other fans about the latest episode of a show...I know the official site has a community area but I tend to enjoy the unofficial communities better for some reason. Anyway


I kind of forgot about the Riches and missed the last episode, the first of this season so I thought this was the season opener. I'll have to look around for last week's but I got the gist well enough. I like the new trimmed down opening sequence. Good choice I think, but again I'm coming from a Lost POV...

Mostly I just wanted to say that it was super tense for me!
for one thing I kept thinking Wayne was going to hit Dale with the shovel the whole time they were digging out that grave. I kinda knew he couldn't but on the other hand it just felt like he was on the verge with Dale going on and on like an ass....and he kept putting his head right in the perfect place to smack the back of it. I also kinda wanted him to.
The other thing is the whole "travelers" bit in terms of the general populace knowing what that is, what that means etc. At the football game the lady yells out "their travelers!!" and everyone gets crazy. Is this really a term that is ubiquitous in the rest of the US?
Anyway, I was totally freaked out by all their schemes at the football game and was just waiting for that waitress to walk up and call them out.
Do we know who the person Dale went to visit in prison is?
I also think (though he didn't say all that much this episode) the Eddie's working on his American accent.
The bit where he pretended to be FBI and started talking into his "earpiece" or down his sleeve though totally reminded me of some standup moves (Hello Swindon, I am here...). But I certainly don't mind.
Though I don't know if people really would go for that ruse maybe the speed at which he came in and "arrested" them didn't leave the crowd time to wonder too much.
And I guess neither will I. I thought it was really rather entertaining and gripping overall.
Anyone else?

I figured they'd go back... it's called The Riches, and that's based on their whole story in Eden Falls. But yeah WTF with the germaphobia? The rest of him sure doesn't look clean....unless it's a whole Lady Hamlet type of scenario playing out in his psyche....
