We gotta talk about Patrick Jane here, from The Mentalist. His beloved wife was killed by a serial killer - had a mental breakdown after that. His next interest, Kristina Frye, was kidnapped by that serial killer then returned in a complete catatonic state. His next interest after that, Lorelei Martins, WORKED for that serial killer (and then got killed by him too). The man can't catch a break.
Great review - I think I agree with it all. Just a few minor points: 1. Again, I want to say how great an actor Stephen Amell has become. He's SO underrated. Between the scene where he talks to Felicity and learns the truth, and the confrontation with Moira...the changes of his facial expressions and the movements in his voice - Amell just keeps knocking it out of the park these days. 2. They need to pick a pronunciation of Ra's al Ghul and stick with it. Either one, I don't even care which. Different characters pronouncing it differently is going to drive me nuts LOL. 3. I like the character Sara, but this wasn't Caity Lotz's best episode. She doesn't "die" well. 4. As for Laurel...her reaction was absolutely justified. However, it didn't help her case that she did it with a drink in hand. I fear they're making viewers dislike her so much that we won't care about her redemption or villainy or whatever road they take her on after this. 5. We need more Diggle. I miss the guy. 6. If people think that Ra's al Ghul is ACTUALLY going to let Sara slide...um, no.
Uh oh...that might have just sealed the fate of all the bubble shows on CBS.
First of all, I've been meaning to say this forever - I love your user name! You've got great taste in comedy :-) There were a lot of great moments in this week's episode, but I really loved how much Krieger there was. As for the ghosts being KKK - that never even occurred to me! Interesting. I thought Archer himself was on point this episode, and I was laughing out loud at the KY thing as well. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine (I review that one as well). It gets better and better every week, and this week's episode had me in stitches.
I'm really looking forward to the Flash. I honestly didn't care about the NCIS spinoff until they said Scott Bakula (my heart...)
I think the mark of a great episode is when the hour's passed and you have no idea it's been that long. I was so surprised at the "to be continued" tag...and I love how fun those tags are. Great episode, great review - looking forward to it's return! Friday Night Frights with Grimm AND Hannibal on the same night!
I'm convinced Stefania is Renard's mom - I'm one of those speculating viewers :-)When Renard's mom called him to tell him that Eric was dead, I'm positive that the voice was the same person.
Dreamrose - honestly, I wanted to marry him LOL I have all of Quantum Leap on DVD, it's one of my fave shows of all time. It actually ages quite well - I can rewatch it and it doesn't feel dated. Except when they talk about computers LOL
You nailed it. After the awesome episode we got last week, this one felt like a punch in the face. That's all I can honestly say. WASTE.
Shoot - I'm so late on this! 1. I wasn't surprised, actually. We all know that Roy Harper becomes Oliver Queen's sidekick - it was just a matter of time. Roy's unfortunate Mirakuru incident was the perfect catalyst. 2. Rob Ford's gonna show up and it'll be Battle of the Bad Mayors!! No - seriously, Carissa's right. The repercussions are going to be greatest for Oliver, who's now going to be right in the middle of family and the politician he's been steadfastly supporting. 3. I LOVE what they've done with Thea. She went from an annoying, rebellious teenager to a young mature woman with a good head on her shoulders. Her character development has been great, and I just want her to stay that way. 4. Hmmm. Hard to say. I think Nick and Hank are on to something. However, in the comics, Roy Harper is kind of a jerk. The Mirakuru may be how they work that into the series. 5. Laurel in a Rob Ford-ian drunken stupor (I'm from Toronto, I can make these jokes), not sure if what she's seeing is real. 6. STILL not happy with the casting of Amanda Waller. She's just not intimidating enough, and until we see some real bad-assery from her, that will be a sore spot for me on the show.
