    Anyone feel like slapping Frank around after all his whining about financial paperwork?

    Joe looked so sad in the scenes with Jess.

    Note to self: Don't piss off the Armenians mobsters.

    I'm really enjoying this series. It's nice to have a straight ahead cop show, with no subplots. It's very refreshing.

    And major cudos to Ed O'Neill. What a great job stepping into an icon role, after being in a hugely familar role.

    I'm enjoying it as well, although I'm terrified of what happens in a couple weeks when there are three pretty darn good cop shows on Sunday night.

    One thing I'd kind of like to see is cutting down on the interrogation room scenes - they work on Law & Order because half the show is about the DAs' work, or on NYPD Blue or L&O: Criminal Intent because they windows into the minds of the detectives as well as the criminals, but I'd kind of expect Dragnet to be about, well, dragnets: Hunting the criminals down, doing legwork, co-ordinating a large investigation... the process.
