    I don't know what to make of this show after 3 episodes.

    The 2 main subplots:

    Ed tries to keep his cousin Donnie from making a marital mistake and playing his guardian angel, while putting the screws on Marie, the con woman.

    Danny figures out a guy is in town to buy a "hot" Ferrari, and goes undercover to put the guy down. Obviously, Danny, with his military training isn't as phased about gunfire directed his way, but what is Mike's background which also allows him to keep his wits and pursue as he's also being shot at by the Ferrari "dealer"?

    Sam is relegated to hostess duty with not much else beside being eye candy.

    Danny gets dumped by Delinda.

    Where was Mary (Nikki Cox)? Did I blink twice and miss her?

    Oh, next time in Vegas, I am looking for that particular pancake house...

    I'm not sure what to make of this show either but it's been enjoyable enough to keep my interest.

    I like it, it is fluff but I like it. Is that Pancake house even real?

    I loved the rules Ed laid down for Marie, she was like "Oh sh!t I'm screwed".

    While I doubt the topless pancake place exists in Las Vegas, I've heard of these establishments in other states, I think Florida has one.

    Any show with James Caan, "A Little Less Conversation" for the theme, and a bevy of beautiful women in varying stages of undress, is worth 45 mins of my TV viewing week. It's junk-food television, but I don't care. [​IMG]

    Quick poll: who's your favourite Las Vegas babe? My vote is for the lovely Marsha Thomason (playing the English pit boss, Nessa).

    What a pancake house! I'd make breakfast everyday if I had found one of those.

    This show is weird, not sure what kind of show it is, but I'm hanging around. It would be cool if it became kind of like the movie "Casino" as a tv show.

    I garee with Patrick, I like Vanessa Marcil, she looks outstanding. I do like the female pit boss though, especially in the opening secuences when she is dealing the cards. I also love the theme song and intro, it's so perfect.

    Vegas must be cake for Caan after living in the Playboy Mansion for 11 months.

    I will put in my vote for watching Las vegas each week, lots of nice eye candy and some cool special effects, that are a little over the edge on a scale of realism, but heck there are enough shows trying to pull of looking real nowdays. What High Defenition feed is it being shot in 1080i or 720p? I think the picture quality is great though. Thanks all take care.

    HDTV: NBC is 1080i, as is CBS. ABC is 720p. FOX is 480p (EDTV at best).
