I agree. Summer fare is Apocalyptic Cheese Time. We've got ZOO & UTD on CBS, THE LAST SHIP on TNT, and DEFIANCE on SyFy. I know I'm not even watching all the "end of the world" stuff out there either (FALLING SKIES, THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, etc.)
It's just felt weird to me that after 2 seasons, we had a whole bunch of new characters who had been in the dome the entire time, yet their presence was never known. I understand Christine & Ava were in pods for the past 3 weeks. But, Abby & Pete were evidently part of the town population & not once made their presence known. I wish Pete had stuck around & helped Julia mount a mutiny while Dale was going all La-La Land w/Ava. But, I guess that isn't to be.
Little late to the party. But, just want to clarify - Q'resh is a planet w/3 moons. Aren't Westerly & Leith 2 of those moons? Also, it's funny to describe a planet as being half under water. It sounds so dramatic, until you remember that 70% of Earth is under water.
Really late to the party. Just wanted to say that it's nice how everything came full circle. GLEE began with Mr. Schuester & Finn, the story of how a teacher & a student inspired one another to be brave & do something unexpected; and it ended with them. Rachel Berry always had a defined trajectory. That girl would have ended up in NYC if New Directions had never existed. But, the characters who were changed, who had to be "brave" as Sue said, were Will & Finn. I'm pretty sure Ryan Murphy was also paying tribute to Cory Monteith in Sue's speech. Monteith - the newbie actor who sent in an audition tape playing drums and singing off-key with enthusiasm. Takes someone special to have the guts to think they can land a role on a musical when they can't sing or dance. And, yet, he became the heart of that cast. A very emotionally fulfilling finale IMO. Thanks, GLEE!
I liked it, too; especially when Lynn held her own without needing to be rescued by Peter. Embassy employees in that region probably have to receive some kind of self-defense training, and she proved more than capable of taking care of herself. My only minor complaint is that we didn't see Peter live up to his promise of teaching Golan's son math before he left Jerusalem.
I agree that the story didn't explain well for non-religious viewers the reasons why a fringe Jewish group and a Christian cult would be working together to bring about the end of days. At it's simplest though, it could just be explained that each group believes they will benefit by helping to usher in God's reign on earth. Hence Pastor Billingham getting ticked off when Joshua tells him he doesn't want him present at the sacrifice. It's all about believing you're "chosen" and that you will live in glory next to God.
The series began with Emma being brought in to save everyone in town. I wonder if next season is a set up to ending the series with everyone in town trying to save Emma. There would be a nice symmetry to that. Also, it would make everyone earn their happy endings as they act that selflessly. Looking forward to seeing who plays Arthur, Guinevere, Galahad, Morgan LeFay and MERLIN!
Henry broke his quill. He may be the new author. But, he wisely abdicated his power so he wasn't tempted to change anything to his benefit.
In the TNT series THE LIBRARIANS, that character plays a similar role. If OUAT can get Jamie Murray to play Morgan Le Fay, that would be AWESOME!
If your family likes music, and plays instruments, chances are music is always around to the point where you take it for granted. My husband is a professional musician. Our kids play various instruments. And, they've been exposed to nearly every musical genre from classical to int'l Christmas (that *is* a genre). Personally, I think people who don't think of bursting into song when they are happy or sad or merely expressing their pet's emotions are deprived. Yes, my kids doing a running musical commentary on how their pet is feeling, and which animal it's hunting while looking out a window. It's hilarious, creative, and a wonderful bonding ritual when the whole family chimes in.
