Major Crimes Rusty Beck

Rusty the Whiner
Rusty the Whiner

The TNT TV series Major Crimes character Rusty Beck needs to be killed. Among a cast of otherwise good humored characters, Rusty is a major “Debbie Downer”. This sniveling creeptoid is self absorbed, whiny, humorless and agonizing to watch. He is completely unfamiliar with the concepts of fun or joy, a veritable dark cloud in every scene. Did the Director truly envision this character as a human dingleberry or is this the way actor Graham Patrick Martin elects to play him or is Graham Patrick Martin just channeling his own inner dingleberry into this wretched character?

Granted, Major Crimes is not on our DVR A List- it’s one of those shows we watch when there’s nothing else. It was certainly better in its earlier incarnation as The Closer, with Kyra Sedgwick, but damn, this Rusty Dude just pisses all over a show that’s just a mediocre Whodunit to begin with.

Perhaps the Phillip Stroh character, defense attorney and serial rapist turned serial killer, played by Billy Burke, will escape from prison and murder this sniveling little shit? Or he could just cheer the fuck up!

But now he’s just a piece-of-crap murdering thug. An interesting… Continue Reading

Falling Skies – Falling Intelligence

I have some questions: What happened to all the military forces of the world? Is it just this rag-tag “resistance” fighting the aliens? Where are all the military weapons? Did they wipe out all the nukes? If so, how? These critters are not that hard to kill- all you have to do is punch them… Continue Reading
