Yes, that was a strong scene. I've been growing increasingly impressed by Arnaud, whom I don't remember ever having seen before.
Well, King and Maxwell is glib and cliché-ridden, right down to guessing a computer password. I liked Jon Tenney better when he wasn't scruffy. Graceland might be okay, once it gets past its frat-boys-at-play bonding scenes. Major Crimes still has the Rusty blight, but the surprising thing about the first episode was the diminished nature of Sharon's role. Provenza looked more like the star than she did.
