I didn't think the show necessarily needed fixing, but season 2 introduced two female characters to balance out the three males. We're not caught up in watching, but I need to put these thoughts down after watching the first two episodes of the season.

Adding Mrs. Pucci seems okay - Winston is going to grouse about things anyway, and now he gets to have someone who listens to him. She's been somewhat useful without getting anyone in danger, and her money helps explain how Chance can afford what he's doing.

Ames, on the other hand, is a problem. I'm not quite sure what she's supposed to be doing in her role as a thief aside from a quick pocket pick in ep#2, but what she IS doing is diluting the fabulous character of Guerrero. Guerrero is so interesting because he's dangerous in a completely psychotic way while being smart and quiet and unexpected. Having Ames as his sidekick is pulling his teeth and making him look less effective, less unpredictable, and, well, almost cute. Bleah. I hope this gets a lot better in the next few eps.

LIGHTS OUT, a new series on FX, debuts Tuesday night. It's getting very good reviews from critics. Bill Irwin has a recurring role as a "shady power broker".

It's kind of amazing that this wonderful man, known for decades as a clown and comedic actor, now has a second career wind playing dramatic bad guys (ref CSI, Law & Order: SVU, etc). Easier on the body, though, and should take him far.
