The opening sequences show what is presumably Michael's bank record. The shot shows a screen dated last quarter 2004. The series went to air in 2007 and is presumably supposed to be current time with screening time. The bank shot is therefore of details about three years earlier than when he was burned. See more »
When I first heard of the show I didn't know what to think. But then I heard that Bruce was apart of the show so I decided that the whole family should watch. And so we did. And now I crave to know what is going to happen next. The main plot of the show is intriguing but individual stories are just as good. There isn't a flaw in this show. And so far all the episodes are very re-watchable. Which is probably the best part of the show. This show can be enjoyed by most but children under ten won't get the humor and the content is just a little over their head. So if you have children note that they might enjoy the action parts they will get board with the rest of it. All I got to say is watch it and fall in love.
