What a combination! The sharpest dialog (all those foot puns) and the goriest action all in one episode. Love this show, even though I did have to avert my eyes on more than one occasion tonight.
I'm afraid I'm reaching the point of liking all the characters on this show except the main one. Dani has become so needy and whiny. Would you take advice from her? When the show started I used to be very impressed by her professional demeanor and even though she had problems with her kids, she didn't let it spill over on her patients. Now she is often in worse shape than her clients. Thar scene where she thought she could lure Matt back was positively embarrassing. I hope she comes to her senses before the season ends.
Pleasant but not the sharp wit I have come to expect. I guess they were toning it down for the holiday.
I used to be a real Glee fan, but this year it seems they are stuck in a rut, recycling old plots and characters. I'm happy to see Smash seems to be dodging that danger.
Last season I always rooted for Karen, and she definitely has a beautiful voice, but put her next to Jennifer Hudson and she practically fades into the wall. She just doesn't have the power and electricity of a big star. She has never grown beyond winning a talent contest. I'm guessing one dynamic of the new season is Karen taking a back seat to Vanessa. How will Ivy balance that equation? Should make for some interesting episodes.
All in all, the music and story were nicely balanced and I'm looking forward to this season's journey.
Good but not up to Justified's usual high standards. I like to see Raylan come out on top. He really behaved more like a loser on this episode.
Love the sharp dialog in this show. I have also loved Louis since his character was on Philly 10 or 12 years ago. He always plays the same character--a smart pain in the *** with no social skills, but it is certainly unique on network tv.
Am I imagining it or is Dani sounded dumber this year? Her inflections and the dim-witted expression she often wears would certainly keep me from taking any advice from her. On the other hand, I love Peter MacNichol as Dani's shrink. He is smart, professional and funny. Maybe Dani could go on sabbatical and PM could take on her patients. Not the same dynamic, obviously, but definitely more believable.
I'm sorry, I can't stand the character of Daisy. When she reappeared it was like seeing a piece of gum you can't get off your shoe. Let's hope both of them take Cam's advice and move on.
Unrelieved gloom and doom in this episode made me give it a lower star rating. There was not a single storyline that wasn't fraught with heartache. Yes, there is a possibility of Bates being cleared, but the guard and inmate are clearly cooking something up. Yes there was a certain satisfaction in the sanctimonious cook being given her notice but the reaction of the Downton staff bodes ill for what is to follow. I confess I felt more anxious than entertained at the end of the hour.
Sorry, when they killed dogs, that was it for me. Clearly anything goes for shock value. I can't watch this when I am sure they will be upping the violence quotient weekly.
