1. What attracted Maddie to Paul McCain? Clearly she was not the type of woman who would "moon" over a radio commentator. - I think what David said and how it made her feel sort of instigated this whole infatuation. David is getting under her skin even though she hates to admit it. The is strange. Anytime David does this to Maddie she reacts by attaching onto another man. This girl is already confused this early in the game.
2. What is YOUR favorite classic ML moment in this episode? - Like David complaining to the bar patron while he gets hammered. Also, like Maddie getting chased by Paul. Funny.
3. How about that location shooting? Anybody recognize any sites? What did use of location shooting add to this episode, if anything. - Location is everything. Well, a very important part at least. It gives the viewer a sense of realism and feel. Take the tv series Moonlighting for example. The show was originally shot in Vancouver BC. Doing this gave the show a dark, ominous feeling because Vancouver is a rainy, dark, and beautiful place. In the later seasons the show was moved to LA where it's hot and bright. Most episodes were then shot in deserts. The show lost it spooky feel. I hated watching Moonlighting 5 season with most of the scenes shot on sound stages. Least favorite was in Maddie's Netherworld episode with the graveyard. Couldn't believe they wanted us to believe that was an actual graveyard. If you wanted to watch Thriller maybe but for Moonlighting?! Blech!
4. So....about the relationship -- is David really feeling something special or is he in the throes of a "crush" on his new employer? How about Maddie......does she know there is something there yet, or is she just flattered by David's attentions?
