No offense, but you often disagree with people who criticize Mac. Giving us a detailed analyis of his psychological profile, you explain and defend his behaviour and why it was okay. There are people who don't know about his past and/or who don't care. And there are people who don't like his occasional hypocrisy, self-righteousness, or him being all John McClane. And there are people who don't like him at all. You don't like Hawkes for reasons others cannot relate to. It's okay if you're disagree, but you make people sound ... dull, as if your were the only one who figured out Mac's entire profile. Then let's also stop talking about Mac being hot whenever he's angry I just finished watching and I still don't like the storyline for the crossover. IMO it's still unnecessary since it only served Mac's character profile and his relationship to Christine. As I said earlier, I would prefer Christine to be ordinary. I know kidnapping is a favoured dramatic element but it's so used. Speaking of McClane: I was wondering about the procedure of the investigation. Wouldn't a defense lawyer argue that Mac didn't follow proper procedures and through proper channels and deconstruct the whole case in a trial? Like that he screwed it up by not communicating with his fellows and going on all by himself? :wtf: And what was it with that package that was sent to Mac? After 9/11 there'd be extremely high security measures which would make it impossible to drop off any non-offical, randomly labelled package at a police station? I would suggest that Christine needs time to recover, though she looked pretty fine for someone who was held capitive for a couple of days without a shower or going to the bathroom. If there's going to be a season 10, they could continue this storyline as a recurrent theme. Or drop it, like they always do.
