I love Boondock Saints too, but there are two big reasons I'd never want a see a sequel:

1) It will never top the original. Leave greatness great, don't mar it with a pathetic attempt to milk more money out of a good thing. Clerks II couldn't top Clerks, a Boondock Saints 2 won't do any better.

2) I don't think squabbling is the issue anymore. I remember reading a report that one of the guys that plays one of the brothers died, ODed. I wouldn't want them to do it without his character, or with someone else playing that character.

Oh, and I only got to see the first 1/3 of Black Donnellys, but loved it. Very cool.

The guy that wrote the script went off the deepend when he got famous as well, they even made a movie about it called Overnight.

I loved GSH and Boondock Saints and I am as Irish as you will find (both parents immigrants, baptised there, visited about 20 times) so I am pumped to watch this.

Truly enjoyed the repeat of Black Donnelys the other night. The ending was surpsingly good, considering it's cable. I still can't get over that the one brother is "Smalls" from Sandlot.

Have Boondock Saints queued up in Netflix...looks pretty good, but I haven't heard much about it.

Odd, I liked Clerks 2 much better than 1. But that was probably cause Kevin Smith finally figured out that color is a good thing.

Just watched the last episode after I got home from work. I thought that it was not as good as the first one but still an excellent one.

The way Tommy and Kevin got rid of the body seems fitting for everything that happened leading up to that point.

Now with Huey's brother in the show I believe that Tommy is going to kill him so he can stay alive. In the preview it shows that Huey's brother finds out who did the killing and what might happen, but they will not kill off the main character in the third episode.

I thought the second episode was a bit of a letdown after the first, but the storyline is good. The writers have done a fantastic job so far.

pretty good show for regular tv. it's kinda like the departed meets the sopranos.
it's got a good time slot after heroes.
