I too think Frank will be back. I loved how he used the bug he found in his closet, which was no doubt planted by the shadowy sleazeball who ruthlessly interrogated Charlie and his wife. In...

If I may be allowed an observation, it appears to me that you are letting Chris Hemsworth's Beefcake pretty boy good looks color your judgment about his acting talent. Keep in mind that the Oscar...
