I think this show would really benefit from re-working the police procedural element. One of the reasons why the celestial plots work so much better is that they’re layered out over the season, each reveal building on the last and working up to a big catharsis at the end of the season. By switching the police procedural aspect from a case-of-the-week format to a second season-long arc, you could accomplish the same thing.
I’m old enough that I was around when Bill Clinton was getting dragged through the news every night for endless months over his sexcapades. I remember a 50-year-old man trying to convince the nation that BJs didn’t count as sex. I remember all of us, Republicans and Democrats alike, mutually agreeing that, yes, indeed, this was absolutely the worst it was ever going to get, the cheapest, the tawdriest, the most embarrassing. Everything would be better from here out, because there was nowhere to go but up.
There appears to be a “Clown Lives Matter” assembly planned in Tucson, Arizona, on October 15, at 6:30pm. I’ve scoured the Internet and as far as I can determine, that is a real thing that is really going to happen in the real world.
Not a lot actually happened in “Legacy.” What filled up all the spare time was literally all of the brutal asskickings. Just all of them, holy crap. I don’t know who’s doing fight coordination this year but whoever it is brought their A game. It was an exhausting episode to watch.
