Thanks. On re-watching, I had more doubts. Some angles I was sure it was Paxton, others, no. 

 

I am loving the Asperger's detective! When I was single, I hoped for an encounter like that one, but noooooo....

 

:)

And now that your married how often do you get approached?  :biggrin:  :P

Well, define "approached"! :) In any event, my wishing for such has dropped to zero.

Yes I'm sure. I recognized him right away from 3rd Watch and the other show Persons Unknown or something. IMDB even shows The Bridge in his credits.

Yup. I recognized him right away. I'm kinda hoping that he shows back up at some point.

Merg, I was thinking he's kind of a big name for a 1 night stand.  Surely he'll show back up again?

r. Her character's Asberger's is interesting, and I think she has it about right, but the gold standard is still "Gary" in Alphas.

Aspergers


I was interested in watching this show, and I started watching the pilot episode having no knowledge of the Aspergers aspect regarding the main character. As I started watching and noticed her somewhat odd behavior, I thought she was just a terrible actress. Oops. I'm glad I read this thread, and it all makes sense now.

So after saying that this is the most unpredictable show ever, I totally predicted the horse.  Immediately from when the "eeevil" lady walked away.

Honestly though, anyone who has watched a movie or tv show ever would have seen the horse thing coming. Either way I'm still liking this.

Sonya's response, like: "What are you doing here?? We can't have sex in the office"

 

Back to the horse: I replayed it a few times to see if the markings were the same as the opening scene. Couldn't tell for sure. 

 

Oddity: The closed captioning was done by WBGH, my old Boston PBS station, the one that launched Julia Child.

Thanks for the correction; much appreciated. At least I didn't use two S-es.

 

So, the score now is:

 

casual sex - 1

intimacy - 0


It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

I think you need a bigger scorecard, as there are a number of players here!

I also used to have to visit El Paso and Juarez as well although the bridge in the first episode isn't the main bridge b/w the two cities.  Going to Juarez is quite an experience.  Good show, though.

I went to El Paso last year and of course could not resist the walk to Juarez, was offered a ride to tourist sites and to see the ladies. I went by myself, did not take the cabbies offer was thinking what if I get mugged and get my passport stole how will I get home. Now if I was with some people I probably would take in some stuff cause of the excitment factor, I live in boring Seattle come on now.

Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

 

Yes, Seattle is boring unless your true love is bad coffee, but at least you will not spend 30 years in a foreign hell-hole jail just because you drove into the wrong queue (ending up in Juarez) and they found a single round of ammo buried in your trunk. Has happened to a number of folks.

Well, sure. But can't I comment about just one aspect?

 

I guess my point is that Sonya is indeed, as the other girl at the PD says, "an interesting girl". She seems to know exactly what she wants, how to get it, exactly how and how fast she wants it, how to enjoy it, exactly what she doesn't want, and how to avoid that. And I certainly would not be unhappy just because I didn't get to snuggle a little bit. Girls with a damaged social filter are my weakness, especially if they are hot, blonde, and stunning.

I just got this week's show but anybody know how I can play catchup back to the pilot and the next 2 shows? I can do VOD on Directv but that's only SD and I won't watch SD. Is Amazon or Netflix or somebody carrying the show in HD? And how come Directv only VODs in SD??
