Eulogy for Sheriff Lamb

I'm going to miss Sheriff Lamb.

He was a dumbass, but he wasn't a caricature. He often harmed himself by spiting those he hated, but he wasn't predictable. He had flashes of competence. The relationships he had with the Mars was one of grudging respect on his part, and his frustration with them had solid ground.

I'll miss him for his entertainment value, because the chemistry between the actors and the repartee written for them both sparkled.

Rest in peace, Lamb.


So, obviously, I'm behind on my TV this week. I've watched nothing all week until this morning. TiVo didn't get VM so I watched on my daughter's computer while she was at school. Yes, I was supposed to be writing. Yes, I am still supposed to be writing. I'll get there.

I love the writing on this show. They made some missteps at the beginning of the season, but last week have been great. Not just the mysteries and how they have gone about developing them. Wallace is back, if only a little. I missed him so! I didn't like how they broke up Logan and Veronica, but I'm satisfied with the end result. He has a lot of growing up to do, and I wouldn't mind seeing Veronica with someone sweet and nondestructive. If they keep the show another season, they could bring them back together again, slowly and convincingly.

The best part, though, is more Daddy Mars. I just adore him. Though he looks much better in a suit than the sheriff's uniform. :)

Never watched it, but had it on in the background while I was checking the guide. Then I hear "Who wants to get out of jail?", I do I do." I'm sorry that was just way too cute. I must've ran that back a dozen times to watch it again. Damn funny.

Wasn't that adorable? :)

I agree with everything you said, Natalie. I was shocked that they killed off Sheriff Lamb.

I have to admit I wasn't shocked. I used to avoid spoilers like they'd kill me. But in my desperate need for anything about Supernatural, even if it spoiled me, I came to start reading Ask Ausiello from, and now I'm spoiled for EVERYTHING.

I'm not reading it anymore. It totally removes the tension. LOL
