Enjoy watching this great show DaboGirl! I really love TG. Nick is so different to Jane. Simon is a fantastic actor who can play all characters extremely convincing.
When TM is over I hope I find the time to watch all episodes of TG again. I've seen them a few times, but now I always watch TM ...love both shows so much!

I was feeling a bit nostalgic last night and re-watched ep 1.20 "Shelter". Simon is so good in this. I remember feeling hopeful that something really good would come next for Nick and the writers could let him emerge from the darkness a little.

The episode before that one ..when Nick is standing on Lulu's party and is totally in shock after the shooting ...that was the moment for me I think that made me the real big Simon fan ...I felt so sorry for Nick and Simon did such a great performance in that episode. I couldn't stop thinking about it, and then it all started ... I checked out youtube for interviews, ordered the movies and also the TM DVDs ...I totally fell in love with Nick, Simon and Patrick ...

I don't know for you tina, but I've watched some episodes of "the Guardian" dubbed in french (it's the same french voice for Simon than for the Mentalist, and I can't stand it.
Had to watch all seasons in the original version, sadly without french subtitles (couldn't find any of them through peer to peer or torrent). I miss the subtitles sometimes, especially when they talk about law or technical business terms.

I prefer English but it's good to have the European version that runs in all players. I do have a codefree one but if it gets broke...and subtitles (or switching to German) will help because I don't understand anything all the time.

That was my gripe about the whole series. Nick never, ever got a break. I can see why playing the character was exhausting for Baker.

Hayseed- I agree. I think that in some of Simon's interviews he alluded to that aspect of the show and how it left him feeling down much of the time. I think that we are really lucky that he reconsidered doing tv and took on TM at all.

On the US version of Season 1, only the promo for the show, DaboGirl.
Unfortunately no extras, Season 1 doesn't even has subtitles.

Have you ever read some of the nic73 stories on fanfiction.net? She writes about TM but also made a lot of fics about Nick Fallin and The Guardian.
She gave Nick a better life in some (with a girl friend to start a new life after the Lulu disaster), and is even writing a "Season Four" (here) at the moment…

I have read many of The Guardian fanfiction stories and I really enjoyed them. Originally I thought that Nick would be a hard character to capture in a story but after I really thought about it, he's the perfect character for fanfiction as a story allows readers to know what the character is feeling. Since Nick kept most of his feelings bottled up inside of him, fanfiction actually captures him quite well.

Thanks tinamarianner. Went a head and ordered from Amazon who is currently selling all three seasons for $50.00. Watched S01 and a good part of S02 so now I can finish up the series. I did watch it first run but for some reason don't remember seeing S03

It's definately worth it to buy the DVDs DaboGirl. I love the show. Just watching it again. I love the scenes with Simon and Dabney Coleman!
Yes, there are not many funny scenes, but it's good to watch anyway. I love Nick.
