Suits Review: Take a Step Back

Even if Jessica is willing to wave the Harvard requirement (and accept a "lesser" school) for Rachel, this is not the same situation as Mike. Rachel would still be a documented graduate of some law school while Mike still would not be. Thus he is still a ticking time bomb for the firm (which is the real case) and the reason for her telling him that he has to never take credit for his contributions. There is too much that would need to be done to make Mike's degree "official" and bullet-proof. In fact, IMO, Lois is missing some simple means of exposing Mike if he wanted to. Why not just check the correct year's "year book" and notice the lack of a listing for Mike?

Grimm Review: Councils and Royals

Alexander has reported to the Council head that Nick is a good guy not just a Grimm who is killing Wesen - IOW: A lawman type not a bounty hunter type. They are aware that he only goes after the Wesen who are attacking humans and that he tries to keep their existance secret. Nick's comment to Alexander was dead on - "Why not tell me what you wanted?". Nick knew that the mummy needed to be "vanished" and I think scored points with the Council by his actions. I wonder if he had a private talk with the captured Wesen to tell him that his mission was successful and the mummy was given a proper funeral.

The Blacklist Review: A Whole Lot of Gray

I was not surprised by Ressler being gifted by Red with the head-in-the-box since he was the one who suggested it (although when he said it he thought that it would be Red's desire). Red's comment at that point was interesting. Tanida had his revenge and I think that being delivered to Ressler would fit his honor system as an apology for killing the fiance. Tanida's mission was all about Honor and having killed the first two agents when they were innocent fit in with the head gift (assuming that Red told him what would be done). Note that he did not blame them for capturing him.

"So now we have a no nonsense FBI supervisor playing with a transformer" Not a Transformer but a Giant Robot from the Voltron Series as Abbott stated. There is a difference between a Transformer and a Giant Robot.

Both of the series are available in their original Japanese form with English Subtitles with the original plots as opposed to the plots used when the footage was recycled to turn the shows into Voltron. This is similar to what occurred with the 3 series that were converted into the Robotech shows (which also have been released in their original form for those interested in the original plots).

That was the Voltron based on the Japanese Anime series Armored Fleet Dairugger XV. The Lion based Voltron was based on Beast King GoLion. For those who did not recognize the gift to Willy, it was a computerized pet toy. You had the feed the pet and do other things to it to keep it alive - otherwise it would die. This explains Willy's comment about killing the ones he had when a child and seeing that this one lived.

Hannibal looks like they are expecting NBC to pull the plug on it and not green light a 3rd season. Otherwise why start S2E1 with the "Take Hannibal Down" fight from Red Dragon? Unless they plan to go the SoL locked up Hannibal route or frame Will there is no where to go once that fight occurs.

Sleepy Hollow Review: Death Has a Name

I was wondering if anyone would mention the series (I had been planning on doing so if no-one else did). The reference is to the first book in the series - "On A Pale Horse". The basic idea of that story is that Death is a human serving the role. When Death comes to collect you, if you can kill him you assume the role.

"First, the list of suspects who could be Red John was reduced from five to three, as Jane realized three of them - Bertram, Smith and McAllister - all have the same tattoo on their left shoulder." Not necessarily - All we know was that the PI was killed by someone with the Tattoo. We do NOT know she was referring to Red John (or was working for him or one of his followers). The tattoo could be a "Tyger, Tyger" ID since we know that one of those with it is a member.

NCIS Review: Murder Swap Bingo

I have no problems with you mentioning Throw Momma as a plotlime reference. As I noted, while watching I spotted the plot as from the Hitchcock movie. As to not mentioning Strangers, you could have said both Throw and Strangers (to cover your bases). That way you hit the most well known of the movies that have used this much recycled plot. I am at an age where my references tend to be of the original use when the idea has been recycled later. I like that the writers toss off movie references (usually by Tony) for the fans even when they may not be recognized by everyone watching.
