* I forget its name, but the episode with the jet pilot on antidepressants. [[spoiler:The wife is discovered, the husband goes "we're gonna lose everything!", and she replies "we were already losing everything! Think about it, how do you feel about me and the kids?" He says he feels better, there are smiles all around, and we're supposed to believe he just becomes a bank teller or something, keeps popping antidepressants and spends the rest of his days with his happy family. There's just one little thing, though: he's just crashed a highly experimental, no doubt '''very''' expensive jet. And the military is just going to let it slide? And not, I dunno, arrest the wife and throw her in prison for a very long time?]]

** I'm glad it was cancelled. Seriously, for the first two seasons, it was the best thing I've ever watched. In the third, they suddenly made Lightman twenty times more of a jerkass than he was before, which just made the whole thing look like a complete House ripoff. At least they stopped before the whole thing turned unwatchable.

*** Yeah. I watched S1 and S2. Then I watched just ep 1 of Season 3 and stopped there when I noticed how Cal was already significantly more egotistical and erratic in that episode than he was in the previous two seasons; the thing that particularly did it for me was watching Cal verbally beat down Gillian Foster when she was trying to get him to bring in enough money to keep the firm afloat. I'm also of two minds regarding Loker. On the one hand, he did a pretty stupidly self-righteous thing by tipping off the SEC against the Lightman Group's directives. On the other, Cal and Gillian keep raking him over the coals for it to the point of Cal purposely trolling him on a few occasions.


**** That's probably it. In the pilot, Lightman asked "What did you call it, radical honesty?" as if it was something Koker just came up with recently. It seems like he just picked it up and got tired of it after a few months, but the fact that it was his character establishing moment ruined the effect.

*** Maybe he just realised itís, you know, idiotic.


** The season 1 episodes were aired out of order. It seemed to me like there was a coherent plot in there somewhere about Loker's use of radical honesty and why he stopped using it, but it got lost in the shuffle.

***The Royal We is about a single personality split into two, not a mother projecting onto her daughter.

Added DiffLines:

*** Seconded. Loker can't at all be blamed for that. And I'd add that he SHOULD do it on company time, specially the way he's been treated. Rules should only oblige on as long as they are fair and power is not meant to be abused.

** She meant that the woman was projecting her thoughts, desires, and ambitions onto her daughter. When she said "we" she ''meant'' "I."

* Is it just me, or has Loker's brutal honesty trait kind of... disappeared?
