Hey Prutgardin - If you go to the bottom of the quotes page, there is a place where you can submit any quote you liked from the show and get the credit. Head over there and do it! I don't want to take credit from where it's due. :-)
Haven Review: Holloway House
10/27/2012 4:15 PM
You guys are right about Claire. I like her too much to want to think about it, but she was just accepted with very little vetting. She said where she came from and what she did, and was welcomed with open arms. That's very strange for a new character.
Oh no....I don't want her to be a baddie. I, too, could spend an entire hour just listening to a conversation between Audrey and Claire. They have great chemistry. If it turns out to be due to dark forces I'm going to cry!
Fringe Review: Bishops, Blondes and Bullets
10/27/2012 3:27 PM
Elliott, I am well aware that Etta blew up the building. That she knew she was going to die and tried to take them with her. She still died for love. When did I say the Observers blew up the building?
When did I say Peter loved Etta less than Olivia? From the start we were all lead to believe that he loved her more, that's why it was so difficult for Olivia to lose her when she was just able to admit to herself that she was worthy of having a daughter to love in the first place.
Finally, I don't review the previews or spoilers. I review the episode. There are spoiler posts for those who want to read them.
American Horror Story Review: A Spirited Debate
10/25/2012 2:09 AM
I'm not nearly as impressed with season two as I am was with season one, and it's because everyone is so unlikable. Last year I wanted a happy ending. At this point, I j just want an ending. So far, the only redeemable characters are the guy accused of killing his wife and the psychiatrist. Everyone else might start out as seemingly worthwhile, but then makes a horrible choice resulting in the realization they are no better than the people that put them in their situations to start with.
I miss having identifiable characters that I want to cheer on. Maybe that will change.
Beauty and the Beast Review: Swan Dive
10/24/2012 4:15 AM
Well, Drew2461, I had a lot going on in the 80s and TV wasn't my thing at the time. I did know enough to know Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman starred in the series, and I recall she wore jackets with shoulder pads. To use your Sherlock example, I don't think I need to know details about the other offerings to review this episode of the new one, because variety is the spice of life. I thought it might be helpful for you all to know where I was coming from. Perhaps I was wrong. I often am - very.
Belle, it's entirely possible I am missing out on great entertainment by missing those older shows, and I really wish I had the time available to watch all the wonderful programming I've missed over the years. Someday!

Your review was much better than the episode. Nicely done!

I've never even heard of Cat Deely. Oh the happiness of not watching reality or competitions on TV. :-)
Major Crimes Review: What's Dunn is Done
10/9/2012 3:11 AM
@Hooligan Agree on Dunn. Smarmy! Sharon was taking photos of him for evidence. Having been assaulted, he came out on the sunny side as far as charges are concerned. Hey - Weren't Starsky and Hutch detectives? They were always dressed down. I always figured detectives needed to blend in. Major Crimes only blends in with Wall Street! ;-)
Elementary Round Table: Series Premiere
10/2/2012 7:32 AM
@marymary My my, you really ARE quite contrary, aren't you? I can dislike whomever I like, thank you very much, as you seem wont to do with me. I enjoyed Jonny's portrayal very much. He was affable and yet still filled with snark. On Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch couldn't pull off the affability. I'll enjoy his other works, but not Sherlock.
If the show sucks, why are you bothering to read the round table discussion of it? There are plenty of other shows on the site for your enjoyment and for which you do not have to insult those discussing it to feel superior in your Americanism.
Please get your insults correct, as my name is CARISSA. Perhaps Clarissa might have taken this personally. For shame, Marie, really.
Major Crimes Review: Let's Stay Together, Yeah, Yeah
9/25/2012 7:17 AM
Thanks Miranda...I didn't get to see the episode but I can tell I'm going to love it. Great job breaking down the Raydor/Rusty dynamic and what it brings to the team.
You guys need to remember that Provenza is an older man. Change isn't his favorite, but he's willing to adapt and that's what makes his character human. If you all tell me you just roll with every situation in your usual form, I'm not going to buy it. :-)
Major Crimes Review: Julio Sanchez
9/11/2012 2:51 AM
Thank you for commenting, @Hooligan... I've been waiting to see if anyone loved this episode as much as I did. I was going to comment on Sykes walking into the room talking without thinking about who might be in there, but I decided Sanchez, Raydor and Provenza deserved the positive limelight for a change.
Somehow, I think they will be plenty of more time to stick it to Sykes in the future! I differ on Rusty, obviously. They've written him to be so smart and sensible that I don't mind him at all. If he was still a whining kid, I'd be concerned. Instead, I like what he and Sharon have. It's different and I'm okay with that.
Army Wives Review: Saving The Best For Last
9/10/2012 1:31 AM
Please note!! I have no idea if the series is ending. They kept saying "until it all ends" and were making things very dramatic, but I don't believe they would have ended the show with such a cliffhanger.
However, it IS a show about the Army, and no matter when they decide to end it, soldiers will keep being deployed, families will lose loved ones and the cycle will continue. So how would they end it?
All of that said, it's also entirely possible it's coming back as a completely different show. They said it's merging with an Air Force base. Could Army Wives still be the title? Maybe that's the catch!!
Doctor Who Review: The Doctor and His Gang
9/9/2012 9:11 PM
@Nicole, you're right. I didn't even think about the dark Doctor because I was so enjoying everything else. But the changes coming his way are most certainly affecting him. I think it's really interesting to watch his slow progression to something darker, all while trying to be over the top funny to keep anyone from catching on. Just took me a while after watching to spot it. Thanks for the heads up.
Tournament of TV Fanatic: Ellen Pompeo vs. Robert Carlyle!

I couldn't for the life of me even think of what ABC show Carlyle was on. Guess I don't miss that show at all.

This is also intriguing news as it's one more clue that Army Wives will not be returning next year. !!! Congrats Alyssa!
Major Crimes Review: Make Sexy With Everyone
9/6/2012 5:43 PM
You guys!! Remember, we're only on the third episode. To have a funny episode so soon into the show that worked is actually pretty rare, even given the fact that we already know these characters. The Closer had a lot of throw-away episodes, even in the midst of some of the most crucial stories, i.e., the mole. The last six didn't even all have meaning. I believe the third of the six was the Flynn Provenza folly in the pawn shop that did nothing for the story arc.
You can be disappointed, but I'll have to disagree with the garbage. I'll also disagree that all the characters were well developed in The Closer. Sanchez, Tao and Buzz have had more life in the first three of Major Crimes than they had in the last six of The Closer. I never realized how interesting they could be.
Who's with me?!
Marlene King Spills Major Pretty Little Liars Secret
9/1/2012 6:08 PM
I didn't even think of this, TVF168, but it all comes down to Emily. You're right that it was her relationship with Toby that brought him into the circle of trust in the first place. And then Maya was targeted, and that was Emily. What's the deal with Emily?

Cats jumping on tables are an old superstition of impending bad luck. Something very simple, really, but placed in the scene like it was it just jumped out at me!

Bunheads Review: What The Truck?
7/24/2012 2:03 PM
I was wondering...do you think Sasha's dance scene might have been a look at her audition for the Joffrey school? I agree, it was mighty weird. Then again, considering the rest of the episode, it was icing on the cupcake!
The Closer Review: Continuing To Deliver
7/24/2012 12:06 AM
Hi Guest, I might agree with you if it looked like ANY member of the team had ever laid eyes on Ann before, but I don't think she ever met one of them, let alone sashayed into the office to tell tales out of turn. And I don't get the feeling she would betray David in that way. If you think of how concerned she was with the approval of his friends and family, there is no way she would do anything to jeopardize their relationship. Just my opinion, of course!

Army Wives Review: Time To Move Forward
7/2/2012 4:05 PM
With Roxy being an officer's wife and FRG leader, as well as pregnant with twins, I don't think we can look to her for "fun" any time soon. They decided to mature the character, and that's what they've done.
Bunheads Review: Third Day Is A Charm
6/29/2012 12:11 PM
xmeg816x - They're going to have to do a lot more prep work on Sasha to make us like her, aren't they? Like all her friends said, you can't just be a bitch all the time and expect them to put up with it. She has to give, and a lot more than just a little. She's a crash and burn type character. Something huge has to happen to bring her down to earth.
