Five max, if I remember correctly. I emailed for a transcript but still didn't get a response. Argh.
Didn't he wake up, though?
You gave it a higher score than I would have. With mommy alive and now a girl who is from 88, I'm wondering if we're moving into some sort of Resurrection situation. God forbid a show should do something completely new! I wish the dome would kill Rebecca. You asked last week if Jim was more concerning now than before. Nope. Rebecca is even scarier than The Following chick killing off people for money (or whatever). I'm always skeptical of characters that NEVER smile, and the half-assed one Rebecca gave to Jim in the car after she buttered the other half of his ass doesn't count. Just ugh. I vote her out of the dome and she can take Yokum Skokum with him. I like french fried pertaters! Mmmmhmmmm.
I think the lack of internal battles -- even Taylor is rarely seen -- has really taken away the edge that we had on The Closer. It wasn't just that Brenda was in charge, but that she had foils; in Pope, Taylor and even Sharon herself. Now it's just a case and Rusty. There just isn't much drama and that makes it far too procedural. The Closer dug in deeper with the criminal aspect, as well. One episode when Brenda left a kid in Mexico to face charges down there left me hollow. She was bereft at making such a decision, but she made hard ones all the time. Now that they're always doing pleas, it's just a case, discovering a little about it, finding the perp and offering them a deal. Where's the tension? When the series first started and Provenza and Sharon were going nose to nose, it had a lot of potential. There was always something at stake. Now everyone is happy, there are no crime scene issues, nobody steps on anybodies toes and they all work joyfully through horrid cases every week. Dare I say...it's gotten boring.
Ha! I was thinking that the only thing that would have made me more depressed watching the episode would have been the appearance of Rios. I counted my lucky stars they woke up and realized what a pain in the butt she was. That constant fainting during the autopsy gimmick and her stubborn refusal to want to give deals. Ugh!
I used to enjoy him, but they've forced him into every single minute of the show. When he should be at school, somehow he's lurking behind a cubicle listening in. It's as if they only work evenings to accommodate his ability to participate. I'm just tired.

In the book, it was a nuclear event that caused them to be The Last Ship. I think they could have had a female protagonist created in a similar scenario, but viruses are all the rage right now, so I guess they went with the flow. Pity that; in this wave of viruses and strains and aliens and zombies, we could have used a good old-fashioned nuclear Armageddon.
Have you signed directly into Disqus lately? I ask because someone used my Google email to create their own account and I was unable to sign in with G+ until I deleted the mess they made.
You're right. It's only episode 4, though, so maybe we're in for more of an honest-to-goodness end of world scenario than it seemed in the first couple episodes. If everything is about the cure, the series would end in no time. I hope we see a lot of different scenarios come up on them.
