Alice said it well: "I’m very disturbed about the show’s direction right now. This isn’t even a figment of the show I fell in love with. The writers have gone completely mad. What do I want to see in 2015? Supernatural become a watchable sci-fi show again."
I want a show about Sam and Dean Winchester; not episodes written specifically for every character that ever appeared once on the show. If the writers have no interest in the show and no interest in the genre, and the two actors only want to work part-time, then they need to wrap the show up. I was so excited for S10 over the summer. The last thing I expected was a weekly soap starring a different obscure character every week. WTH!!!

The 100 Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Spacewalker

THE 100 IS THE BEST TV SHOW. It would have been wrong if they saved Finn, he killed 18 innocent people, but somehow I found myself hoping he'd be saved. I thot they'd take him to mount weather to seek refuge or something, I really was hoping for a twist that would spare his life but alas, it had to be done. My heart was racing when Clarke went to see Lexa, I thot for sure she was gonna slit her throat and the episode would end there, it would have been a crazy cliffhanger, but no, she didnt. Well, its done, I dunno how Raven's gonna recover from this, but I think she'll come around eventually. Maybe, they should get her a new love interest. I'm not even worried the least about the 47 or 46, since one of them is currently being drilled. Those last minutes were very intense. the mid-season finale was perfect.

NCIS Season 12 Episode 10 Review: House Rules

I agree completely with your review didn't think the episode worked but did have some good moments.

Another amazing episode. Even though I do not like Greer's character, I did rather enjoy seeing him as a young MI6 agent. Samaritan is beyond scary, and that kid that was portraying it was really creepy. I could easily see that kid acting in a horror movie. I am not sure how The Machine and our PoI team are going to beat Samaritan. I love the entire team, which includes Bear, and I do not want to lose anyone on it. I guess Root would be the one I would hate to lose the least, but still are valuable. I cannot wait for part 2.

Person of Interest Season 4 Episode 10 Review: The Cold War

This episode was absolutely terrific. And that conversation between the Machine and Samaritan was amazing and creepy at the same time. I really hope that no one dies in the next episode or episodes. I'm still not over Carter's death. I'm one of those pathetic losers who still don't think that she is dead and she is out there working undercover for some federal agency ;-)

The 100 Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Spacewalker

Meh, I'm glad to see him go. What really did he add to the storyline other than be a source of lacklustre romantic conflict? That could be filled by just about anybody. He was inconsistently written and once he opened fire on those villagers, there was no coming back from that. That was deliberate, cold-blooded murder no matter his motives. Comparing it to Bellamy's actions in S1 is no good, we have to deal with the here and now and this is the way it's panned out for Finn. Hopefully there'll be a juicy aftermath that can be explored between the characters, then at least Finn would have been good for something.

The Affair Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Reconnecting

I didn't find Cole attitude towards Alison's grams as dismissive...I saw a man who once was deeply hurt, and did not want to go through the same pain again. Kind of what Noah told her at the hospital...it feels as the same pain, but it's not... Maybe I am naive, but I do think that in this situation, Cole cares more about Alison, than Helen...I think Helen is more concerned about not having her perfect happy-ending or perfect safe life. Suddenly, I do not perceive her as a strong woman at all...while in couple therapy, I felt they were pathetic...

I had dinner tonight with pals my wife called to take me out. I had a particularly difficult day at work because of the type of procedures I had to perform and the age of the patients. It was a day of cleaning up after violence. Horrendous.
Now for the discussions at dinner. One of my longest suffering friends is a professor of psychiatry at UCLA. He, I, and a Ob. Gyn. pal of mine went out for an Italian orgy at Bucca di B------. During dinner we discussed, at my urging, the consequences of adultery and the causes from their perspective with dealing with females. Boy do they have a different perspective. Both these guys are in their mid-50's and have been divorced and now remarried. The Shrink is of the opinion that once a female has rationalized the act of adultery in her mind, the actual committal of the act is quite simple. The difficulty is in the mental justification and the inner turmoil which occurs when a woman contemplates cheating. In his and the Ob's opinion, a woman thinks far longer about the commission of the act than a man. Women, in their opinion, have a higher threshold to scale before commission of an affair. The Shrink (I use the term in a reverent manner), stated he has had literally hundreds of women in his practice who have admitted to or desired counsel about adultery. The reasons run the gamete of what we have been discussing. The most common explanations have been loneliness, lack of sexual contact with spouse, wishing larger variety of sexual experience, monotony of relations, boredom, anger at spouse, or retaliation for spouses' infidelity. Interestingly, adulteresses, the Gyn. stated as his opinion, rarely stop at one affair if undiscovered. The Gyn. had a patient (no names ever), who had carried on simultaneous affairs with 2 different men all working in the same high rise in L.A. On a least 2 occasions the woman had contracted an STD, but not a mandatorily reportable one. She of course had transmitted the joy to her 3 partners. They could treat the STD with RID (so you can diagnosis the ailment). Both gentlemen, were of the opinion that women were far better at keeping the affairs secret than men. In fact, the Shrink could only recall a handful of women patients who were discovered in the course of the affair. Most of the women had affairs, and then returned to their spouses without incident... Even the multi-occasion offenders were rarely discovered. Am I giving guys reason for concern? Affairs apparently are commonplace and quite easy to disguise. The patients were representative of all age groups (20's, 30's to 70's). One of the patients of the Gyn. had an affair with the same person the husband had slept with (a woman). The Shrink stated that the adultery rate among U.S. married women approaches 30% in the studies which he has read. That is rather shocking, but not according to him, since the divorce rate exceeds 50% in the general population. One of the Gyn.'s patients used her affairs to experiment with different sexual techniques and even varieties of condoms and sex toys. He stated that this patient cheated for a least 3 years before returning to her husband exclusively. My Shrink pal said that his ex-wife cheated with some one we all know (before we were pals), but that he will forever keep that name a secret, because the guy has remained cordial and his ex no longer lives in the State. I have no idea who the guy is, because I think I know my friends really well. He must be just a person I know but am not friendly with. I told my wife about my dinner discussion, and she was not particularly surprised about the Shrink's observations. She said that it was common knowledge that females have a higher threshold to the commission of adultery. My wife has always tried to refrain from discussing the sex lives of her friends with me. She is very protective of her friends. She actually has little or no interest in the intimate contacts of my friends either. The only one she keeps track of is me, and she knows that I give her little cause for concern. None of the aforementioned reasons for cheating exist for me. Thankfully, I have way too much trouble keeping up with my wife's demands. But I keep the Hall Pass list up to date, just in case. Ha Ha!

Your post ended at " During dinner we discussed, at my urging, the consequences of
adultery and the causes from their perspective of dealing with females." There must be more to the story. p.s. Since I develop surgical equipment I have observed many surgeries. The one thing that struck me was that when there are operations on children things get very quiet and serious. Struck me as a very good sign.

Sorry Sojourner.
I was called away and had to finish my post after some delay. Work calls seem to never cease.

I was one that didn't care for the assignation of Finn's character. He went from pacifist to murderer in a blink of an eye. It looked like for the sole purpose of dumping his character from the show and giving Clarke another big moment. At this rate she is going to single handedly tame the wild world of earth. It was just a little too melodramatic for my taste.
