Everyone who is upset about this apparently forgets "The Source in the Sludge" when it all came about. The insurance incident reminded the couple that they have a child together and one of them is not a trained FBI agent, making her a liability in the field -- not only for insurance purposes, but for the purposes of raising their child. That's when Sweets took on a more prominent role and that's why Aubrey is there, now. It's not realistic for them to remain partners given a multitude of circumstances relating to their personal lives.
It first aired in March 2014, so it works for our purposes. Don't worry. We still have the best dramas of 2014 coming... sans the new!
Except it's not a new show. Keep your fingers crossed... maybe it will be on the overall worst list!
One of the things we're proud about at TV Fanatic is we're a site for fanatics. We are fanatics ourselves. Millions of people enjoy procedural television and we're not going to denounce someone's right to nominate THEIR favorite show of the year. Thankfully there is television for everyone to enjoy.
I don't know many divorces where all sides are cheerful as they think only about the others and their well being. They may get there eventually, but they have to be equally committed. Some men and women work well together. You lashed out at Lyla as she defended her need to protect her job as making her an unfit mother. What about Dan? He makes no money. What does he deserve? Damn right she's losing confidence in her job because someone who CAN be there at all hours and at the drop of a coin is on the fast track to partnership. If I was raising a child and my ex didn't work and someone was aiming for my job, I'd reluctantly give up story time, too. If that makes me a bad person, so be it. I know the extra lengths to which people go when circumstances dictate. I've been there.
You're right. We live in different worlds.
When a man has to skip a school commitment for a job, it's accepted. When a woman does it, she's an animal and obviously doesn't want her children. Imagine if Dan was an attorney and providing for the children. An important meeting comes up and he has to choose between making money to support his family or going to story time. I won't believe you if you say you expect him to choose story time. A home, food and clothes for the kids will always take precedence. Are they lucky to live in their capacity? Sure. But that's the job Lyla is good at doing; becoming an ADA will hardly allow her the luxury of story time, but will cost her the home and the school her kids attend. Reality is people who work cannot attend all of the festivities. I don't think my father spent one day at my school. His job wouldn't allow it. These days having one parent to be there is a luxury. Nothing about Lyla's speech was entitled, but instead was from a woman pained to be alone in providing for her kids while her "artistic" husband thinks himself above a job not according to his status as the Mr. Upcoming Young Chef 2008 or whatever. Watch the movie Chef and let me know if you look at him in the same light.
Darn it! I wanted to add Bash but when it came down to making the list, I left him off. Why aren't you tossing in suggestions to add to these Best of slideshows?
I thought she said she has to pick up her kid, leaving the gender ambiguous. If she said son, it could have been Noah's younger son.
Although a lot were nominated, it's not a death count, it's an exit list. Unfortunately, most series have chosen to kill off any character who leaves. Yang definitely deserves to be on the list.
