Fantastic Episode.
4 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watch FAR too many movies, and even more TV... However I watched this episode and created an account just to write this review. This was a fantastic episode and I felt compelled to try and offset the negativity of another reviewer.

As Wilhelm touched on in his review, this episode was less about wit and comedy, and more about giving some depth to one of the central characters of the show. Season 1 focused primarily on growing an audience, setting a feel for what the show was about and showcasing its potential. Passionate and emotional; season 2 brought delving in to the past of the characters, which was greatly needed - ESPECIALLY after teasing about his back story in multiple prior episodes. Fans WANT more backstory, and Cho may be one of my favorite characters on TV. Cold, calm and collected, and did you see him run down and tackle the car salesman in episode 13!? As for the name, "Avon Park Playboys": You have to remember, making up catchy names is not the end goal of most gangsters... they are more often linked to certain areas and I wouldn't doubt that "Avon Park" might represent their own "turf". Besides, it was not supposed to be a particularly successful or large gang, and I felt it was quite believable. "Mr. Ice"? Remember he was supposed to have received that name sometime in the late 80s/early 90s as a young teen. I personally know wannabe thugs with much more ridiculous monikers.

Overall it was an episode that added emotional value to the series. It gave us more information about Cho and helped with character development. It was well written (with the exception of the transparent plot to reveal the true killer) and left me wanting more. Kudos to Woodruff and crew!
