Goofs

When Ronnie asks Dutch why he's under arrest, Dutch replies "the last three years," meaning the whole series timeline is supposed to take place over three years. However, Vic's daughter Cassidy is 8 years old in the first season and 15 years old in the final season. All the other children also age way more than they should if the series only took place over three years. See more »

Finale - Fini - Done - Complete

Not quite. Too many loose ends not tied up. Did Dutch do it? Where did Vic go? Did Aceveda do it? Did Ron even last a day in prison? Though the writing was great and the acting, just as great, the finale was lacking. I thought that the loose ends would all be tied up. Did they leave things open for a sequel? The series was good, but the last 5 minutes just let the air out of the entire series. Sorry.

Where's part 3?
