Bushi101Last night my wife's best friend came over. She is an attorney for one of the large movie studios in town. She is single (divorced, irreconcilable differences, no adultery). My wife and Sheila spent the night eating appetizers from a local restaurant and drinking an occasional scotch. They were laughing hysterically most of the evening. They even had friends on Skype. The Tom and Diane proposition for their reconciliation was just funny to them. In fact, Sheila was happy they found common ground. After significant airing of their uncontrolled hilarity, Sheila made the suggestion to my wife that I be allowed a certain of extracurricular companions. This was followed by the additional comment that of course my wife be allowed similar satisfaction. The thrust, which was totally in jest, was that they (Sheila and my wife) could raid the local Universities for handsome young studs as their reward. I am going to order a lifetime supply of E.D. meds and keep by wife totally busy and tired. She will have no time for any of that garbage (my wife, thank goodness, would totally enjoy that). Today I played golf with my regular foursome. One of my golfing buddies was a family law specialist before he became a Superior Court judge. I told our group the entire story over lunch. They almost, to a person, choked to death in laughter. They had such fun with this situation. Then my buddy, the judge, told us that he had no problem with any solution with would facilitate an amicable reconciliation of what appeared to be a happy marriage of at least 6 years. In fact, his comment was "different strokes for different folks". Then he told us the story of a couple who had been married for about 15 years. The wife started an affair (sex weekly) with her personal trainer (who was married). The husband found out and filed for divorce. The wife suggested marriage counseling and mediation. The husband agreed. The end result, the marriage was saved. Now the kicker. The wife agreed to limit her sexual encounters with her trainer to once a month, not exceeding 4 hours. No other partners. The husband was allowed similar compensation. He could have sex with any other woman, once a month for 4 hours. The husband was not limited to just one person. If he wanted a different woman every month he was allowed. The couple agreed to these conditions and have been reconciled for going on 9 years. The judge was one of the attorneys who drafted the formal agreement between the spouses. So there we have something almost as weird. This is California. We have had an actor become Governor, then President. Another actor, George Murphy, became a U.S. Senator for almost 2 decades. We have had tricky Dick, brain challenged Ronnie, war hero turned crook (Duke Cunningham), a college professor from San Francisco become Senator for a portion of one term. These are all the turnips that have grown in our garden. Yes, Southern California is almost paradise when it comes to climate, and availability of leisure activities, but it is also the uterus for the development of the most freakish individuals and activities. You just have to take the bad with the good.
Referencing the Nation of Islam was a bold move that I appreciated. It showed that EMPIRE isn't afraid to hit controversial opinions in the black community head on. But, Anika is NOT what she appears to be. Boo Boo Kitty has all the right expressions and reactions, to get Lucious to trust her. But, mark my words. This kitten has claws! I suspect she's positioning herself to take over Empire as soon as it goes public, with the backing of shadow investors. In case people forget, taking a company public is risky because the threat of takeover is much greater than if it remained privately owned by one family. Yes, Lucious' might make a ton of money. But, he could also get pushed out by the board if someone mounts a takeover bid. I predict the season finale will be just that - and the Lyons will have to unite to fight off those who want to push the family out. EMPIRE is basically DALLAS in the music world, with Andre, Jamal & Hakeem being early versions of J.R., Bobby and Gary. Yeah, Hakeem is about as ill-suited for corporate intrigue as Gary was.
Watching this episode, I think it would be like being on drugs if I knew what that was like. I have surrendered and decided the way to enjoy this show is to go with the utter complete insanity wackiness that is Helix. This one was very funny and clever in it's own insane Helix way.
Brilliant review! I've never seen the show, but you managed to make me tear up.
I'm glad Christian Kane's character, Jacob Stone, made the list, but, like many other Kaniacs I notice commenting, I disagree with his placement. He rates #1 in my book, not just for this show. There's also his role in Leverage and so many other shows/movies, plus his singing, songwriting, and acting - and he can cook and does his own stunts when he can!
I don't trust Joe, never did and nor does Steve. There's a part of me that wouldn't be surprised if we found out the Joe was Steve's father and, hence, the secretive plotting to keep Steve from ever finding out the truth. I hope Steve gets the answers he so needs and deserves to help him heal physically and emotionally. As terrorists go, I think they were rather stupid. Really, what purpose does it serve to kill everyone off or maybe they didn't realize they'd be dead too. Either way there'd be no one left to torment. Good thing we have Steve to do away with the bad and the idiotic of this world! Seriously, it was a very good episode! It was high octane, a good story and fun. I enjoyed watching Steve go into full-blown "Steve the Seal" mode - it's been a while since we've seen him like that. I miss him! I think Lou has a new found appreciation of Steve's commitment after seeing Joe in action! I hope tptb continue this storyline and give it a decent burial.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NONONONONONONONONONONO NONONONONONONONONONONONONONL M OK NONONONONONOBOBJBONONOBOONOBNONONONONONONOOB NO I just finished watching season 1 on Netflix, just to find out its canceled Wtf??????
There are good things and bad things about Netflix. I think people forget the make very little original content and most of what you binge is produced for network television, and intended to make a profit via commercial advertising. If more people who replied to this had watched the series while it was airing, it might have stood a chance of renewal. Unfortunately, they did not and it was cancelled.
#ChristianKane as #JacobStone is absolutely Awesome. He puts his heart and soul into everything he does. He is without a doubt my all time Actor/Songwriter/Singer. I am a major #Kaniac, Thank you for including him on your list...
Daniela really was plain mean, especially with Felix saying he thought she looked fine. I kind of wish they had done ore with that since Felix and Cristela butt heads so much. Maddie was HILARIOUS and it was great seeing have a bit of a plotline AND be kind to her co-workers.
#ChristianKane as #JakeStone in #TheLibrarians is #1 in my book
