Don't Mess with Mother
8 December 2015 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

This second season certainly starts off with a bang, a big one. From there on, however, it's mainly people and atmosphere rather than plot. Seems local thugs, including a 6'8" giant, are running a protection racket. So better pay up or else. Except Mother (Urecal) tells 'em to go you know where, causing one of the series' bigger brawls. Then there's Pete & Edie's brief bit of innuendo as they cuddle outside the barroom. Producer Edwards was really pushing the envelope of the time. And catch "The Owl" (Delevanti), who appears to have a telescope glued to his eye-- Just where is Sirius, anyway. And, in passing, I expect that's a cluttered studio prop room where Pete tangles with one of the thugs. Anyway, there's more fisticuffs than usual, but Pete in his spiffy suit looks like the last word in urban cool. And so does the series.
