I would have given this episode 4 stars until we got to the end. Then the emotions and tragedy of the young serviceman's plight really took over and created a powerful story that left me shaken.
I don't think the episode felt rushed; just not particularly memorable. Aside from a few great expressions on Monroe's face, there was little entertainment and certainly not much to advance any of the story lines. I think this episode could be termed "filler."
Oh no! Kim Raver is back. That just about spoils it for me. With all the possibilities in TV Land, we couldn't have some one new and interesting?
Absolutely the best episode so far. Heart-pounding, galloping action. Finally Alicia showed cunning along with her intelligence. Very satisfying indeed.
Very entertaining. I kept laughing and figuaratively rubbing my hands together throughout the whole episode.
Loved that Liv takes on fixing the poor intern that got victimized. All in all, a great episode.
I watched this show later in the week On Demand and was surprised by the clever dialogue. I found it rather charming. I would never choose it over NCIS but I hope it isn't cancelled so I can watch it as a back up.
I liked the new maturity Tony showed in this episode. I hope he doesn't slip back into being the amiable doofus the rest of the season. I do think it is unfortunate that Ziva doesn't say good-bye to the whole team, but all in all I have no complaints. Considering the writers had to respond to her decision, they did a pretty good job of showing the emotional turmoil that was driving her.
My God, doesn't anyone in this family watch Law & Order? Everyone in the civilized world knows you have top have better evidence than a questionable ID to win a case. This made the show seem like Law Enforcement for Dummies. Maybe that is the kind of simple drama people want in Blue Bloods and I should not expect subtleties, but it bothered me that the result was the impression that NYC cops didn't care about civil rights. I wish Danny could be allowed to outgrow the "hothead" stereotype he has been saddled with. And the same disgusted expression he wears when things don't go his way. I realize this show is not The Bridge or The Killing but it could still stretch itself a little.
Just watched the premiere episode On Demand and thought it was far more gripping and well-paced than The Blacklist. From the TV critics I read, it is likely that this one won't survive which is really unfortunate. I just hope they will allow all the episodes to run.
