The show keeps getting darker and darker. The basic premise is so cynical and corrupt that it is really bothering me. As Olivia asks her father, "What's the point?" The real issue is not who killed whom but why everyone accepts the fact that people must die to save the republic. Olivia wants to know, and so do I: Where are the White Hats?
Not enough Reese in this episode. The 2 strong female characters are too much alike in the action scenes. Despite all the drama, I found this story disappointing-- just your average dystopian B movie.
Here's something that puzzles me. Why would Jake quit shooting after 3? Obviously he has no scruples about murder. Wouldn't it be better to leave no witnesses?
I was disappointed by this final episode. Felt it could have been so much more. The NY Times review said it so well: http://tinyurl.com/lejobbo The detective story had been replaced by a buddy story with one buddy back to being a jolly buffoon and the other overacting in the worst way. I really felt the quality had slipped from the very high standard of the previous episodes.
With the final twist at the end I thought the show was going off in the totally new direction of an alternate universe. I would really like to see that for a change, with all the characters playing new roles. Sort of like the farm hands in the Kansas of The Wizard of Oz.My favorite line in this week's episode came from Tom after the 3rd gun got pulled in a stand-off: "This is just getting silly."
I was surprised to read that this show hasn't got a fan base on Fox. I really like the main characters and their relationship as well as the big ethical questions about what it means to be human. I hope the network doesn't pull the plug prematurely.
Frankly, I always thinks Amy sucks the oxygen out of the room when she appears in a scene. She is weirder than Sheldon and not in a good way. I admit I was pleased that they took things to the next level but I just wish she didn't have so many creepy qualities. Where Sheldon is endearing, Amy is just unappealing.
Best quote of the night when Charlie and company arrive in New Vegas:"Fathers, daughters, mothers, sons, come see the mummified remains of Steven Tyler!"
The best part of this show is the awesome writing. The dialog has a rhythm that is magical. And for that reason, commercials on this show more than most destroy the power of the performances by interrupting this rhythm. As a result we record an episode and watch it later, speeding through the commercials. We had a power outage Tuesday night this week and had to watch Justified On Demand. It reduced the enjoyment by 50%. Just thought I'd mention this to fans who might like to enhance their viewing pleasure.
Following Law & Order SUV is just too much Dick Wolfe in one evening. Maybe I'll try to watch one of them On Demand and see if that is any better.
