Ryan's blog may be how he decompresses, or he may enjoy it. It's not that far-fetched of an idea. I'm doing a full time accelerated Bachelor's degree, I have a part time job, I'm involved with 4 different time-consuming extra-curricular activities including writing for TV Fanatic. And somehow I find the time to keep a blog, however irregular my postings. Simply because I like it.
While I agree with all the comments about Castle being portrayed as bumbling rather than charming, I have to say that I have never laughed more at that show than I did at Castle's autotuned viral video. "I'm Chricard Rastle"....oh my gosh I was dying.
Play on words, maybe? Merlyn...Merlin...magician?
I think they're on the wrong track - I don't think it's Merlyn. I also don't think Ra's al Ghul killed Sara, just because that's just not the style of the Ra's that we know from the comics. He's ruthless, but he's also an "intellectual" ruthless, so the idea that he would just show up on a rooftop to kill Sara seems way, way off to me. I think it's something else entirely. My inclination is that Sara's death has something to do with Amanda Waller.
Amy Lynn, so glad you're enjoying the show!Here's a fun fact for you - the director of that episode tweeted that the scene where Holt explains the plot was done in ONE take! Andre Braugher memorized the whole scene - 4 pages of dialogue - and nailed in one take. Like a boss.
Great review, Carissa! What I loved most about this episode was the setting. Corto Maltese was gorgeous, and it made the fight scenes look even more incredible. I want more episodes in Corto Maltese!! I personally can't wait to see Thea kick some ass. Though I do wonder what side she's going to be on.
I don't know, Carissa. While I like what they're finally doing with the character of Laurel Lance, I continue to find Katie Cassidy grating. Maybe she's just being directed badly because I think she's capable of better given how she started off the series...but man, she chews the scenery like it's breakfast. And it's not getting better.
In The Killing Joke, one of the most popular (and my favourite) Batman graphic novels and probably the best origin story of the Joker, he is a failed stand-up comic...who becomes the Joker after having a really, REALLY bad day.
That was absolutely my favourite line! That and Bullock telling the store clerk to call 911 because they're homicide and on lunch.
Ooooh - interesting point about the heart of the truest believer! Though wasn't the prophecy that "a boy" would be his undoing? I kinda thought the "boy" in question turned out to be Peter Pan, his dad in boy form, while Rumpel only thought it was Henry. I could be wrong though, and yours is an excellent theory.
