I thought it was a smart choice to have almost no Derek in this first episode after his death, because it made the audience feel his absence as strongly as the characters were. It's like he's just gone and you can feel his missing presence more than if they spent this whole episode analyzing it, and there were some great moments that really, really backed this up. How about that scene when Meredith and the kids return home and then we see her laying in the bed alone? Devastating and they didn't have to do anything like having Meredith go through Derek flashbacks or anything like that. I also loved the cover of Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" by The Wind & The Wave that they used for this scene, it was a crazy contrast in styles between the original and the cover and it worked real well here. Aron Wright (who this show introduced me to and keeps on playing his music) really did a great job on the "In the Sun" cover at the funeral, too - it also totally lived up to the Joseph Arthur original. The funeral was maybe a little short but other than that I do think it was best that they forced us to move on, just like everyone else had to. It's still upsetting but I think if they had to kill him off, they handled it in a really impactful way that really honored his memory and did his legacy justice
And just WHERE was Jake's Girlfriend, Angela in all of this, Love the show, but that is an EPIC FAIL, They might as well say, gee, now it is just a waiting game to see how long we can stretch out Jake and Laura getting back together. I Don't Want Them Back Together, I Really Like Tony. Tony ended up being almost an afterthought in the whole big picture.
NCIS knew calling Dorneget a fan favorite was loosely based. They were really shoving it down our throats.
This show has been surpisingly great - I was worried that the CW was going to pump it up with way too much romantic relationship drama (which do I love but not for this kind of show), but it hasn't been that bad and now that Iris and Eddie have finally broken up, I hope it cuts down even more, because the action parts of this show are a pure treat. I am worried that they might make too much Barry-Iris cheese now (although I loved that in the scene at Jitters when Barry assures her he'll find Eddie they used "Every Age" by Jose Gonzalez, but I digress) but as long as they keep the Iris stuff at the same level or below as they have so far, I'll be a happy camper.
I am no fan of Messing. She got on my last nerve in Will and Grace. The rest of the cast, including the actor who plays Jake, are good.
Good, thought I'm not liking how Dorneget is suddenly this magical computer wiz. I'd rather see a new character.
I love this minseries. It is so mysterious and creepy. It is a joy to see Matt Dillon on my TV screen, and he is doing an awesome job as Ethan. I am glad to hear that Juliette Lewis is in the rest of the episodes, as I was sad to see Sheriff Pope kill her. So sick the town was cheering! I am excited to see what happens next.
It won't last. This is the why: https://prettyandwittyandbrigh...
Why noone ever mention that Kat Graham was on the CBS show Stalker for the last episode of the series. haha
I didn't realize it only got a half-season renewal.. As much as I like Messing, she's not worth that much... The final episode could have been a series finale... It's a shame that ABC couldn't have given that other NY based/shot show (Forever) another shot... It would certainly cost them less than NBC is paying for this show...
