I tried to find a compromise [1], and you shouldn't revert without giving any explanation. It is a plain fact that police violence is portraied as funny in this series. The most extreme example I know of is a suspect lying flat on his face when the agencies diretor shoots him in the back at close range. In the next cut the suspect is running away because he is invulnerable or something. Ha ha, very funny. -- 790 13:10, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

As long as you are unwilling to engage in a discussion, I will regard your changes as vandalism and remove them. -- 790 21:19, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

I made another change to my version, introducing the magic word "disputed". Again, I'd like to encourage you to engage in discussion. -- 790 03:32, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

unfinished plot lines[edit]

As this show is cancled, there are several unanswered questions about the main plot lines. Please update this section if you know (for a fact) the conclusion to the main plot lines. Please list sources. moved this request from user:Liquidcable from the article, 790 17:34, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

plot[edit]

This paragraph seems a bit POV - "Most of the monsters are portrayed as behaving rather human-like, forming urban communities. Considering this, it can be noted that the SU2 heroes do not go to great length to treat suspects respectfully. They are shown to attribute "link" suspects as "scum", and make use of harassment, unlawful arrest, torture, and willful murder against them on a regular basis."

The series isnt NYPD Blue or The Shield, but a sf-comedy actioner influenced by Men in Black and I don't recall that much hard-core violence. I still have the series on tape, perhaps someone can advise specifically which episodes these incidents take place in to save me having to check every one?

Well I can remember one Episode where there where - hell I don't remember, I think they were kind of lizardmen who could make themself invisble or sth. And the africanamerican police chief shot one in the back in cold blood when he was lying on the floor. -- 790 01:21, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but "links" shouldn't be covered by the Constitution of the US, nor the Geneva conventions, nor any other legal work. Therefore, harassment, unlawful arrest, torture, murder, etc... Are not applicable labels to what happens to them. Of course, I may have just forgotten an episode where they actually have a "Link's Rights" document shown, it's been a while since I've last watched this.

References[edit]

Is there an accepted way of citing the show itself as a reference? Sci-fi channel is re-airing the shows and I'd like to add to the article, but I wasn't sure how to cite actual episodes as references. I made a few changes to the introduction based on information from the pilot episode, but I was curious about how to handle references before I put too much other stuff in.--Dragonvpm 08:30, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Glorifying?[edit]

Is it me or does this show seem a bit, (can't seem to pick the right word) uh I dunno, glorifying or something, I mean look at all the episodes, I get the fact that it's a comedy show, but come on, every second of an episode the main characters all do something "flashy" or conduct (what I like to call) verbal diarrhea. I laugh at some things, like when O'Mallard and his gnome friend were beating on the banshee with reinforced bats and all, but I have to say, they'd always be like in the middle of a takedown and when just a couple of words would do it, they go and start a whole 'nother dialogue topic and say "Oh yeah, when we're done here, we're gonna go get a drink." another person would be saying "Yeah, margurita for me." and the othere guy would be saying "Well if your gonna do this I might as well, too." and then another guy, out of nowhere would pop in saying "O'Mallie, you still have to do... something.", or any other stuff that doesn't happen at all or even shouldn't happen at all. I think it's just full of 100 percent, guaranteed, solicited, junk bull-crap of verbal diarrhea. I'm trying not to hate the show or the subject, but I find the things they do are completely annoying, just cut the crap and get to it, it's like beating a dead body with a stick after you're done killing the guy or something like that. I give it props for comedy, but that's all, and even after that, I found very little amount of the show "humorous", probably only twice out of the whole show. Anyway, that's all I wanted to say. Later.

You know this isn't a discussion forum, right? I find the show humorous for just those reasons you mentioned, but if I feel like expressing my opinion, I go to a discussion forum. Xavius, the Satyr Lord (talk) 12:39, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Chinese Laundry Store Front Signage[edit]

Have you noticed in watching re-runs of the show the phone number of the store front signage changes; sometimes even within the same episode? Is this due to the reuse of shots from Season 1 and Season 2, or the change in shooting locations? Was this intentional? Inquiring minds want to know. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kizzbone (talkcontribs) 05:43, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
