12:06 pm - More Pretender
So in the gaps between series of Life on Mars, I am watching some more Pretender (and also State of Play, about which more when I'm done with it).

Of course Jarod had to be a lawyer at some point. :)

My favorite part of this episode was Jarod's friendship with his first client, the transvestite cab driver. Such a fun character, and totally willing to break the rules for and with Jarod.

Aside from that, and the moment when Miss Parker almost shoots Jarod, this one felt a bit forgettable.

Oh, I really like Jarod as a motorcycle cop. And once again we have some fun guest characters--Hettie is so personable, and a solid twist on an older character unwilling to give up her freedom. (I'm a bit weirded out that she didn't think to get glasses herself, though.)

I really did love how tangled up in wanting his family found Jarod is, how much it tied him to this case, the dreams, the sort-of waking visions. *pets his angsty head*

Current Mood: okayokay

Yay, Pretender! I frequently want to pat Jarod's angsty head. Although sometimes I also want to back away from him slowly. Actually, I frequently want to do both at the same time. :)

I didn't find myself wanting to back off at all in these episodes (whereas I did, earlier). Curious. I guess he just didn't go too crazy on the bad guys this time around. :)

His crazy does vary from episode to episode. :)
