    I can forgive certain faults with TV shows but after a while the constant holes and unbelievable situations made me feel like their target audience are twelve year olds kids. I sort of felt insulted that the African American actors always had hat in hand wondering what to do next. no strength except for the violence in the cave written for the bare knuckle fighter. the show did have potential but lost it. what do the call it? something or other of disbelief. Like people would just hand over their guns. yeah right.
