Well, it keeps delivering. Some highlights:

Timothy Omundson two minute entrance as a rich douchebag was incredible. Not a single line or action was wasted on not being an asshole.

- Duncan Farnsworth i i i disappeared from his helicopter two days ago
- I'm pretty sure it is the third, sir
- Already seeing a pattern, huh?
- What do we know about this guy other than his father and grandfather's name?


- We sent little Angie to a private boarding school in Maine
- We're really hoping he can get in


- We have sixty thousand suspects
- We're going to need a shitload of handcuffs


The short lived Angie Tribeca Miami (although apparently we might have Angie Tribeca New Orleans next episode)

The whole helicopter pilot bit and the lieutenant date

- Do we have anyone inside the animal rights movement?
- We had a mole. But they rescued and set him free.

Tim Omundson coming on and basically being Evil Lassiter was amazing.

Lieutenant behaving on a date like a stereotypical TV lieutenant at the station had me in stitches.

This show is so jam-packed with jokes I cannot for one second turn my head from the television for the entire running time.

This is a show that at this point I gave up and watch each episode back-to-back twice. If I blink or get distracted a couple of seconds with a phone alert, it's likely I'll be missing a joke.

Except the Timothy Omundson entrance. I must have watched it a dozen times because it lands every non-stop joke perfectly.

The Lieutenant acting like a TV Lieutenant on his datings might be my favourite thing this season.

Other things in episode 2:
the title of the newspaper: Desperate Times
the weather in New Orleans, and the louisiana biting snake effects
"could you fax this back to Scholls and see if she can pull any prints or DNA?"
"it's really dark in here"
The string of nonsense with the big reveal

About the last episode? Yeah, they did it.

I really enjoyed this last episode. Loved 50s NASA with Natalie Portman and the cartoon hijinks in the ACME lab, especially. And I didn't catch it until rewatching that the falling-from-space victim's name is Alan Fresco. AL FRESCO.

This last episode (with Lizzy Caplan) was a little less subtle with the jokes, but so many good ones: the quality of Tribeca's spare clothing, the cliches around movie amnesia, everyone vouching for Deirdre Christie (even if just to not look like an asshole), the fakeness on the witness protection, the whipped cream, dad?...

Yeah, I found this last episode a total delight. The witness protection town was especially wonderfully thick with ridiculous jokes. The tortoise whose new identity is as a dog! An Irish pub called John O'Doe! The drawings of books and fake spice racks on the wall in the background! The guy who knows why Pope Benedict retired! and ...Dad?

Season finale! I enjoyed the absolute nonsensical resolution, and I kinda loved Chris Pine's Hannibal Lecter character throughout the whole season but especially in the end. (HE WORKS IN THE DAY CARE.) But awww I'm a little disappointed the lieutenant's dating life / engagement / marriage aren't real. I enjoyed that comic territory a lot.

I love this ridiculous show and hope it gets renewed.

I think ratings are pretty stable and TBS is happy with their comedy lineup, so it should be safe and renewed by mid August, like last year.

But awww I'm a little disappointed the lieutenant's dating life / engagement / marriage aren't real.

The ending kinda cheapens that. I want to imagine the Lt. really acts like a cop pulling rank everywhere in his life. But if this wasn't a completely unexpected payoff to the whole season, I really don't know what would be.
