So, because I had my laptop open and was in a state of amazement, I made a list of all the explicit language, adult content, and general lunacy in the show so far. Granted, all in all it's pretty tame, but I'm still fascinated to see explicit content edging its way into network television, even if it is a cable network:
It was way fun. I loved JM's character, Christian Troy, big-time. He's supposed to be ethically fucked, your average professional asshole, arrogant as hell, yadda yadda, but in fact he's already run through the gamut of vulnerability both emotional and physical, and shows a lot of concern for others, especially his adopted family. In short, he's another incarnation of Spike. Which of course just carries on the trend from his previous role of Cole Turner.
The previews for upcoming episodes made my jaw drop, just as the original series promo had. Including:
Female Psychologist: "Don't call me sweetheart. It's offensive."
Troy, blandly: "I call all my bitches 'sweetheart'."
Clearly, they're not going to worry about about restraint.
