I try hard to like this show and its characters, but to me they are barren, joyless and ultimately pathetic, almost to a man (and woman). I will continue to watch the final season but IMHO no show has ever demonstrated a better reason for suicide than this one.
"their constant cluelessness confuses and frustrates me. These are not entry-level positions they have and they often don't seem particularly good at their jobs."Amen to that. They seem more like interns that competent professionals. Are they there for comic relief? They aren't inept enough to be funny, just annoying.
The dialogue was from the Scorpion School of Bad Script Writing. Almost every line was a cliche: "Pack your bags; we're going to Baltimore" "We're here to get your baby back" And that was in the first 2 minutes. Then my eyes began to glaze over. The show will probably succeed because it is about computer crimes for the elder set who don't know anything about computers but somehow believe that this stereotyped band of off-beat rebels will use their coding skills to neatly break up an international kidnapping ring in 49 minutes. The final scene of Patricia Arquette sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial made me want to gag. Which brings me to my final complaint. Arquette as a ditzy spiritualist in Medium or as a struggling mother in Boyhood were believable, but Arquette as a savvy IT savant -- not so much.
They really jumped the shark with this one. A little paranoia is good for TV watching but this was beyond any semblance of believability. Very disappointing.
This show is so annoying. I can't stand they way they talk over each other and constantly bicker. They are all so darn earnest. It may be the way (some) families roll, but it sure doesn't make for entertainment. Why do I watch it, you may ask. Actually I rarely do, but I do like Zeek and Hank and I guess I am just curious how it will all wrap up.
As a librarian I was really looking forward to it. Lots of good humor, very much in the style of Indiana Jones. My one complaint was the speech of the librarian-thief was hard to understand. I agree with CM that the true test will be the next episode when the LIT (librarians-in-training) have to carry the story.
This show has really jumped the shark. I can't wait for it to end. Introducing a new villain with some dubious scheme at this stage reminds me of those old soap operas that kept cranking out ridiculous twists and turns just to keep the story on the air. Enough already! Just don't kill off Nolan. That would be the final outrage.
He's Back! And not a moment too soon. Grimm without his powers was getting very old and tiresome. Now we can really have some fun.
Cary was superb throughout. Every emotion showing in his eyes. He understands that acting does not have to be over the top. The joke letter was ridiculous. The Alicia we have been shown over the years would never have written such a letter. And she certainly would not have been so insensitive to defend herself by saying it was a joke. Just not at all believable. Frankly, I don't think I would vote for her; she doesn't really have a handle on the requirements of the job.
I love these guys but I agree with isoron. There is no shame in ending a series after 4 seasons.
