So far, I like James Franco's turn as the twisted tagger. He's the right balance of creepy & fascinating. It's just the story he's in that's a waste of the paper it's printed on. This "mystery" so far seems like it was written by 4th graders. Either that or the writers just plain don't give a rats' behind anymore whether or not we're offended by this dung they fling at us. C'mon people. Give us credit for some intelligence.
If this was Sonny's story, I'd buy the stupidity of the character, but it's Jason's story. Not Sonny's. Jason is not stupid. Neither are Sam or Spinelli. But, you wouldn't know it by the way they're acting as they try to figure out this thing with the photographs. He receives the pictures in the mail. Spinelli figures out it's a high end camera-professional grade. Then, they go to a gallery exhibit filled with photographs of crime scenes yet none of them can put the two pieces together?
Then, there's the "wave". This is not an ordinary wave. It's distinctively a parade float wave. Then, of course, out of the 3, only Jason was able to figure out that the bum & the "artist" were one & the same, even though the only difference between the 2 was a shave & some ratty clothes. If this is the best the writers can come up with for a big star, the show is doomed to walk the slow, "Guiding Light" death march & that is a waste of a very talented cast. No amount of celebrity stunt casting can fix bad writing or stupid, poorly thought out storyline.
