Deputy Siobhan Kelly: What are you thinking about?
Lucas Hood: I don't know. I was thinking about something someone said to me the other day.
[pause]
Lucas Hood: I mean you get used to a certain way of being and uh... Do you think we are who we are or do you think we can change?
Deputy Siobhan Kelly: What you mean people like you?
Lucas Hood: Me, you, people in general.
Deputy Siobhan Kelly: I don't know if anyone ever changes really but we can evolve, right. I mean that's what we're trying to do isn't it, just become better versions of ourselves.

Hood meets Jason Statham - OH WOW
15 February 2015 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

OK, before you start emailing, let me say that I KNOW the actor was not Jason Statham.

But you have to admit that was the point.

I mean, after the (now famous) episode where Hood is forced to give a tuneup to an MMA star (looking twice his size) who wanders into Dodge (ooops I meant Banshee), you have to concede that the logline for this script (eyes only, not for public consumption) probably read "HOOD MEETS STATHAM" and they just took it from there.

My reviews of individual episodes already suggest that I believe this could be the most significant show of its generation, and that is a mighty bold statement.

But I do watch a lot of TV (so much so that Neilson people once took me down with a tranquilizer dart, tagged me with an RFID chip, and then released me back into the wild) and I am going with instincts here.

This is indeed my pick for most consistently "best" show on the box, and the reason is not merely what the producers (who, according to their IMDb bios, seemed to have appeared as if from nowhere) have already done with the series, but rather in the way they are never content to rest on past laurels, they just keep testing the envelope.

The first 5 minutes here, the setup, was more fun than ENTIRE MOVIES recently done by Segal and Van Damme, And it just gets better and crazier as it goes.

When I compare this to shows like Person of Interest, I think of David and Goliath. POI is very polished, is like Microsoft. Big names both in front of the camera and behind. Committee think. Endless resources.

But this little gem came out of nowhere, it seems, and just won't stop raising the bar.
