-I basically love anytime they banter. Miller and Liu have a great chemistry and the partnership has really been hitting its stride. Loved the final scene when she told him she already had a job lined up.-It was stronger than previous plots despite being kind of cliche.-Watson needs more depth but I'd rather it be with Sherlock. Like that final scene when he waited with her for her ex or dinner with her family.-Both definitely. He'd never want to admit that he's come to care for her or that he likes her around and he sees that she's good at investigating and genuinely likes it.- He'll reluctantly admit he wants her around after she leaves and she'll reluctantly realize that she wants to keep working with him after she starts working with someone else.
I enjoyed it. I agree about the pacing and some of the reveals but I chalk that up to pilotitus. Ill keep watching.
I'm probably the only fan of this show that actually likes Angelo. I hate that everyone is determined to make him out to be this horrible person, and I've yet to see anything that supports that. He's entitled to not divulge some information. He had a right to request a DNA test and not share it with anyone until he knew the truth. Toby was wrong to disclose his information like that. And John Kennish will forever be a pompous, self righteous, colossal jackass. I've detested some of the ways he's treated and talked about Angelo and Regina both. Not a fan of the Kennish parents at all. Daphne still being hung up on Jeff was annoying and the way she treated Travis especially knowing his home life was despicable! Loved Melody's speech to her! Gave me goosebumps. Felt bad for Bay but she'll do well at Carlton.
Episodes like this show how strong the entire cast is. Yes I definitely missed seeing Reese more but Michael Emerson was incredible as usual. Plus I relish the opportunities when they show just how awesome Carter and Fusco can be too. They're more than just the asset on the other end of the phone. They're characters with their own stories and development. The shift in dynamic and Carter's perception of justice should be noted. This despite its subtleties was a defining moment for her character and next week looks to be too. She and Fusco are essential characters that require just as much development, not plot devices.And Finch is a strong enough character to lead, he was due that after the first few episodes of the season. I love that they don't wrap things up quickly, makes it real, gritty, and intense. Loved the episode.
I liked it. I like that this show knows what it is and it isn't trying to be anything else. There is q simplicity to it and how real it tries to be. I fear at times, like Parenthood, it'll be one of those shows constantly on the bubble because it goes for heartwarming and realistic displays of everyday characters rather than breakneck pacing and convaluted storylines with twists and turns like most shows now. Part of me couldn't help but wish Cruz would just suck it up. His conscience and his brother will ruin him. I really felt for Casey and I'm glad that he's shaping up to be a complex character. He carries his burdens as well as others. I'm glad Kelley is seeking help and I liked that it was with the help of Dawson. I like seeing characters interact with other characters they don't typically interact with. Love that he and Shay made up. Sucked that no one seemed concerned about Dawson. A pattern. I'm not too invested in the triangle but I don't fault her for seeking out the guy who showed that he wanted her. I can see where Casey was confusing especially with her oblivious to all he's going through.Love Hermann.
@MrsO you seriously think victor should call them mom and dad? I don't think its necessary that he does. He's been bounced around a great deal, even though its been a few months to a year, he probably still feels like there is a chance for this situation to not be permanent. I often wonder if Joel and Julia ever really explained to him his adoption in a manner that he comprehends. I think they, more specifically Julia expects things to be a certain way and quickly. The adjustment for all of them takes time that could be longer than a year. They rotate between coddling him rather than disciplining him and not taking the time to actually understand all that they need to take care of an adopted kid with a troubling previous home life. Plus they have Sydney who also demands their attention. It isn't fair to either brat that they can't grasp how to handle it. Julia in particular. Joel fares well actually.
The moment the incident happen she reverted to the momma bear protecting her cub....forgetting that he's supposed to be her kid too. Its no surprise he feels closer to Joel, especially after that. Yes Victor has issues but nothing astronomical as long as he's handled properly. Joel has a grasp on this that Julia doesn't, which strikes me as odd given the big family she grew up in. So I actually found Julia frustrating in this instance. And victor being seen off as a bad kid is disconcerting .I am not a Kristina fan but she was delightful to watch in this episode. I actually enjoyed her and Adam's time in this episode the most. Knew the wig thing would backfire on him but loved the new do on her. I love Crosby and I probably couldn't have been so accommodating not with the friction he and Jasmine's mom have always had. Ugh love Hank but Sara has some nerve being jealous given the circumstances.
I find the reaction to Victor surprising. Granted I wasn't a huge fan of his initially, but I actually felt like Joel as usual had a reasonable response. The bat ob fact slipped, hurling it wasn't intentional on his part. I think both children are rarely held accountable for their actions and Sydney is a certified spoiled brat. The lack of accountability she faced that contributed to the incident was also appalling. Verbally destructive to a kid who already has issues. Julia and Joel s "talk" with victor about his mom was not only a little off but left incomplete, and they all walked around in edge from that moment in letting this tension build. Julia's issue was that she felt insulted that he doesn't think of her as his mom. Her response was to pretty much tell him that he's hers now and that's that. There are better ways to discuss that and they failed miserably at that. I found it frustrating to watch. To make matters worse and confirm his feeling outcast
I figured it was going to happen but it doesn't change the fact that I'm bummed. I absolutely adored the show beyond words. It was one of the only shows that kept me smiling and made me feel good while watching. The cast and writing was nothing short of incredible. I'm so grateful that we'll get the closure...I just wish we didn't need it this soon. They had a nice run. The eclectic bunch of characters and writing stole my heart.
-sweet and fluffy. I easily just described a puppy but so what.-ziva hugging Sr. The intimacy between the viewer and Tony while watching him first enter his habitat.-It was too short.-Neither. Mcgee, was no surprise in him being a mascot. Tony's apt didn't surprise me either. The limited personalization of it, the neatness, the small bed or the fact that none of the others have ever been there. His reluctance to let anyone into his space. It fit him perfectly. He's enigmatic and contradictory. A goof and having a huge personality on the outside and serious, subdued, private and guarded on the inside.-definitely. Fits with THEM being a family.-Tony. He's always been a personal fave. I've always "got" his character. Love it when they peel back the layers and show his depth.-More of this peek into their lives. Tiva. Not a shipper per se but their bond is more fascinating than ever. Multi arcs and Vance.
