Agreed. Frankly, I'd rather see a lot more action-oriented episodes, where they fight terrorists. That kind of blood-pumping action and intrigue would truly make this show sing. Of course I'm guessing there's some strategizing going on, as the writers and producers try to suss out their demographic. What's candy for some would be poison to others. That's just a guess though.
Man I love this show! This is the first episode that I left on my PVR (instead of deleting it as soon as I finished watching it) because I want to see it again. Christine you captured some of the best comments too. When Will said "kill the wabbit" I could hear Elmer Fudd singing it. Jim appeared arrogant because he couldn't help being true to himself. I think he wanted to support his girlfriend but just couldn't get past the sleaziness of the outfit she works for, and his disdain for her latching onto it. It think he knew long before she did that the relationship was over. I fully expect Jim to finally see what Maggie has already figured out - that they belong together. (Man I feel so cheesy just writing that!) It's true though. They'll probably "re-discover" each other in the last episode.
It was a great first episode for the season. It'll be interesting to see how the typical Jane dynamic mixes with the fact that he's now ½ of a couple. I just couldn't see it happening before - not with him keeping that ever-present ironic smirk on his face. Nice to see him opening up to Lisbon - let's see if it'll last. As for the guy saying "I know you" - I'm guessing the only reason they had him say that was to let us, the viewers, know. You're right though - it's not at all believable. The norm would have had him saying "don't shoot!" or "you don't need to do that" or some other cliché protest.
That's a really good point. There's not much that Gibbs misses - unless it has to do with technology that is. So yeah - he was showing confidence and trust in Tony all the way here. Good catch!
This is great! Marked Justified and the Americans in my calendar.
This show is moving to its conclusion way too fast. And the potential new owner of ACN is an absolute wing nut - Charlie's worst nightmare (and mine). The hope here is that Will stays out of jail, and that ACN is allowed to continue on its merry way. Hate to see such a smart show with great rapid fire dialogue end.
The show is scheduled to run next week. There doesn't appear to be any interruption for the remainder of the series.
I was so wishing they had blown up that hangar, too. It was a perfect opportunity. And I guess we really can't blame Lockhart for sending all of the Marines out to the blast site, thereby leaving the Embassy with very low protection. He never dreamed the explosions were meant to provide a distraction. This is such a great series.
I think you'd be wrong, Terrie. It's just too risky - all you need to do is be caught once, and it's at least a firing offence. It's kind of like saying most retail employees have shoplifted merchandise from their store at least once.
