You answered your own question as to why I didn't cover Thea and the DJ. It was incredibly random and pointless. If they get a real story, it will get mentioned. As I mentioned in the review, in the comics they moved away from the sci-fi element in the comics by making the actual suit shrinkable because of the dark star matter rather than making Ray a metahuman, which I suppose he was at some point (I'm a googler, so I get my stories piece meal!). With everything else we're taking with a grain of salt, I can take that, too. Science is *supposed* to do cool things, right? Where is my briefcase that turns into a car? We're so behind where the imagination takes us. ;-)
Someone who stumbles over his own words to the point he starts to think he sounds creepy isn't creepy. He's awkward around Felicity, sure, but he was awkward in the board meeting, too, BTW (to quote him there at the end). So far he has been shown to be sure of himself, but not skilled with personal interactions of any kind. I just don't see what's creepy about that. Rather, I find it endearing. While he could be a playboy, he's not because he's not a smooth operator.
I inspired you to do some research!! We rock. ;-)
You're winning awards, here, Winter. I'm stunned into silence! :-)
I agree about the flashbacks. I think I noted it in the premiere or something. Oliver is talking like a petulant brat again and acting as if the first two years of intense survival skills had no merit. Considering he forgot the first 20 some odd years of his life prior to the island all together, I suppose it shouldn't be a shock.
I didn't feel Roy's interactions warranted much chatter, let alone the reopening of Verdant. Did I miss the DJ introducing himself? I know his character's name, but missed it in the show so didn't bother mentioning it yet. I'm sure more is coming. Do you know the names Hong Kong family? In recaps I refer to them as the Hong Kong dude and chick and kid. Pathetic of me. I can't seem to pin them down.
I'm not saying you don't like women. However, in your personal life you consider yourself dominated (however willfully) which has to color your view of Grace. Do you think she hold all the cards because you have given your cards to your own (again, beloved) women? If Grace was a powerful as you believe, she would have had the wonderful relationship with her husband that she longed for not felt her only outlet for gratification was to turn to an escort. See, the way I see it is as a stay at home wife while Neil spent extra long days at work, disregarding essential intimacy and communication her, Grace felt Neil held all the cards and he didn't want to deal her in. Thusly, she sought her desire to be, well, *desired* from an escort. It was only when she finally was noticed as a sexy woman after going so long without that she made her choice. If she hadn't forced the issue, taking her book club to a night club, she would have still been at home and unhappy until Neil had his epiphany and decided to bring her into his world.
Grace used her body to win over Simon on a personal level? That doesn't even make sense, given that he's a paid escort. This view of Grace as the devil and all of the men around her as above a great deal of reproach (other than just a hand slap for allowing Grace to drive them to this madness) is odd. How is it that Neil isn't culpable in pushing away Grace with by not being involved in his marriage because Grace cheated, Simon isn't culpable of falling in love with one of his married clients because Grace used her body? How is Grace the only one in any scenario with any culpability? Misogyny? This view of women as holding all the cards is way of base.
I'm calling dibs. Girl crush wins! ;-)
Guiding Light was my pick. After that ended I rolled over to All My Children. Then that was cancelled. Now I'm watching Young and the Restless and Dish is dropping CBS. I'm better off watching Hollyoaks online from Britain!
