Do I detect a formula show? Michael helps the helpless every week for cash with a background story of our hero tracking down who burnt him. This will work, it has worked for many shows in the past. Clever writing, good stories and characters with depth are key.

Overuse of Michael's dry "wit" and the constant freeze frame style detract from the shows appeal. I'll hang in, if they can give me something to hang on to. Points to Michael's mother, getting exactly what she wants...
