Gosh, I agree with ALL of you in ALL matters. Hawkes in Help, Linds' secret, Louie's fate, the idea of All Access, Introduction of Lindsay, D/L the way they go etc..... all agreed!! I personally think NY gets weaker in writing on a weekly basis. The first two season were generally really good, but then 3 and 4 started to lower in quality, which makes me loosing interest more in more. The tongue-in-cheek-LV-style and the stylish-beautiful-style of Miami are missing in this show, and I can't really see the writers figured out a style of their own yet, except you taking that new Everyone-hooks-up-with-anyone-Soapy-style into account... First, they lost the blueish style, then they got Lindsay and then they lost the opening sequence and recut the theme. WTF??? :wtf: I personally would like to add that the Stella/Mac relationship, though I am not much for them getting hooked up, just having a brush with the idea once in a while, got inconsistent over the time. One time, he's offering her a room and she kisses him on the cheek, and one time, you hardly see them speak/deal with big issues in their lives. I mean, that's not just for this pairing the case, D/L was on/off on 100% basis, too, at the beginning. I don't like that kind of story telling... Bottom line: The fact that they got no consistent character development in whatever way... Louie, Lindsay, Flacks and stellas sister etc.... is pissing me more and more off. Period!
