Rachel-the pure, innocent, goodie girl that makes everyone sick and thinks they know better than everyone.
Rachel, well how would you change the scene then? Have Siderov point a gun at Sam and Deeks instead? Gunshot as it fades to black? Because for 4 seasons, these guys have been too super human, coming out unscathed in almost every situation. This changes everything. And well, if you think about it, in some ways, it does fit the story. You may not agree with me, which I know you won't, but as violent and controversial it is, it just fits within that context. And hats off to Eric Christian Olsen for "selling" that scene.
Briana- I won't stoop to using that kind of language, but you be quiet and get away from me.
Liv- the torture scenes were not necessary in the least for this last episode.
you don't know a thing about me either. Briana-know, I was quiet and shy as can be. I realize that NCIS LA didn't even show the most violence, but the fact that they are just now showing torture scenes like this shows that they are caving into society's desire for violence. They are changing their show based on what some other shows are doing. I realize that there is a lot of violence on t.v., but they crossed the line when they put those torure scenes in the episode. I know what I'm talking about because someone I know who use to watch 24 said that the scenes they showed were worse than that. It's not a merely a social justice issue, but a moral and ethical one, so yes I will bring this issue to light. I don't need a PHD to know that if you can sit through a scene like that and not be affected that you have already been desensitized to a certain degree. And I'm talking people in general.
Kevin-you were the quiet dweeb in school who falsely thought he was the smartest guy in the room, weren't you? I feel sorry for you.
Rachel-you were the crazy chick who led every protest in college or something, right? And people thought, get the heck away from me...
Rachel-Please don't open the floodgates. This tv violence issue has been brought up many times in the past. Yeah, there's lots of violence of tv, but sometimes it's necessary within the context of the show or story. NCIS:LA is neither the first nor the last show to do it. It's not the most graphic even on its own network (Criminal Minds, talking to you). Why do people watch shows like Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, and other shows filled with gore and blood? (Seriously, that scene where the guy's daughter is burned alive in Sons of Anarchy is...wow) Because despite the violence, a lot of them are damn fine shows. IMO, people watch NCIS:LA because of the amazing chemistry between the cast and characters. There's other appeals. Whether people tune in for the premiere, well that's up to them, not you or me. Have a good day.
Rachel-Like I said, you don't know a DAMN thing about me. So don't you dare criticize someone because they don't react in the same way as you. Where's your phD in psychology that makes you an expert in the thinking of others? Show it to me right now and I'll shut it. And don't put words in my mouth; I never said said tv violence didn't have an affect on me. People don't need wake up calls from an overly righteous individual who thinks they need to press an issue just because it's different or not exactly in the same state of mind as you. Let them decide what they want to do and watch. Look, I don't want to get into a deeper argument. So I guess we just have to agree to disagree.
Kevin- Furthermore, I am well aware of the fact that we live in a sick world. I don't need to watch a t.v. show to remind me of that. Also, in watching those kind of shows I am allowing my brain to be filled with junk. My mom used to watch 24 and she says that the torture scenes in the season finale are worse than those in 24. In watching shows like SVU people are inadvertently supporting the violence and societies desire for violence.
worse than the season finale of Downton Abbey!
