    Making a list? Christmas Star on the Nakatomi Tree? Freaking hilarious! and Run DMC In Hollis Queens in the limo, “this IS Christmas music! Way to go Argyle!!!

    My take on the Tataki death is that he let his guard down and got a little bit arrogant which got him a lot killed saying, “You’re just going to have to kill me”. Bad writing just giving the villain a chance to evidence coldness.

      Yesss! Totally forgot to drop the Run DMC jam, haha!

      And agreed: a touch of bad writing to give the villain a shot at demonstrating his villainy.
