    I actually liked this episode, though didn't like what was happened to Delinda, but as a catalyst, it showed Ed in a controlled rage, and Danny trying to keep things from escalating too far.

    The MIT subplot was pretty obvious, but it was fun to see "Revenge of the Nerds in Las Vegas".

    I thought this episode was really good. This was entertaining. Great shots of the "scenery" in the Hotel. Those MIT dorks were pretty funny, but I kept thinking they were gonna pull some sort of Ocean's Eleven.

    I would of beat that guy down (rapist) a little more before I pulled the trigger.

    Well, Delinda did a good job on that front...

    When James Caan enetered Delinda's hospital room, did anyone else expect him to suddenly bite his knuckles? Man, I usually don't flashback that sharply, but when "Ed" walked into that room, it was "Sonny" all over again! [​IMG]

    I saw the last 10 minutes of the show and I'm wondering about the hotel sign "MIT Rules, Caltech Sucks.'' I thought this was some type of in-joke by higher ups involved in the production of the show. What did I miss in relation to the MIT angle?

    A bunch of nerds, who were suspected of ripping the casino off, helped catch the rapist (by refining the facial recognition software) and, in exchange, were allowed to post that message on the hotel's sign.

    They were suspicious b/c they had a bunch of computers, plans, maps, etc. But really they just wanted to hack every sign on the strip.

    Thanks, Don. Knowing the history of pranks between Caltech and MIT, I thought MIT got off a major shot at Caltech, via a random camera shot. Makes sense now.

    The rivalry is actually Stanford vs. Caltech, the MIT one is much less of an actual prank laden rivalry.

    Yea, this was a good episode, the kind that will draw you back again. Not as deep as some of the best dramatic shows on TV (say ER, Law & Order, etc.), however entertaining none the less. My only complaint is that they need to make the James Caan character a little more likeable and sympathetic. For example, Clint Eastwood and Charles Bronson could play bad ass characters with a little more charisma. I am a fan of James Caan and I have seen him put in better performances.
