@provocation I don't write or not write with the intention of getting a response. I review the episode as I see it and people can either comment or not. Doesn't matter to me if people do or not. I do care if people blatantly misinterpret what I write though.
Also, I've always thought there was chemistry between Lauren and Bo. I haven't always thought they were "right" for each other at specific times, but there's an attraction there. In "Lachlan's Gambit," I did think the sex there was more about healing then lust though.
2. When I referred to "the bedroom," that was not meant literally, rather figuratively to represent their sexual/sensual relationship. As I wrote, their physical attraction to each other is undeniable. They can show their love/lust for each other in a single glance.
3. Why are they boring? Lauren is too nice and her humanity isn't enough to fulfill Bo. It's not that they are necessarily boring to watch, but as a couple that's going to be difficulty for them to overcome.
4. Both Dyson and Ryan are able to fulfill Bo in a way that Lauren can't. It's not Lauren's fault and it doesn't take away from the love they feel for each other, but it's something that will become an issue.
5. My analysis had nothing to do with preferring one relationship over another, but as a character analysis. For full disclosure: I have been always been on Team Bo. I want her to be happy with the person she chooses. I've liked Dyson, Lauren, Ryan and last season thought her and Vex would be intriguing.
I wasn't going to comment, because if I've learned anything since covering Lost Girl, it's that some fans are going to interpret any negative thoughts about Bo and Lauren's relationship without giving the context any consideration. But, my words are being entirely misconstrued and that's unfortunate for a lively and friendly debate about the show.
Some commenters seem to be either latching on to specific words without looking at the context of the sentence or paragraph OR perhaps just reading other comments and going off that.
1. I never said that Bo and Lauren don't have chemistry. In fact, I wrote the exact opposite. (see next)
The Good Wife returns on Sunday, January 6.
@Steve Now I must track down the preview. I hadn't seen that. Intriguing.
@Evi Uzbekistan is definitely not in Central Europe. What I meant to say (and didn't) was they were both former Soviet Republics. Corrected.
Re: the tunnels. One moment Ryan is walking w/ Alex down the Division passageways talking about the search for the mole, next we see the White House and him walking in the tunnels. When he gets there, Evan asks "Anyone see you enter the tunnels?" I took that to mean anyone from Division. That's where the confusion came in. They also used the tunnels to get in for the mission and get Markov out. If not connected, they needed better transitions to explain movements.
@F - I didn't see it as sexism, because for whatever reason Sam and his wife decided that she would leave the business, while he stayed in. That was the decision that was made for their family. When she said that she wasn't sure that she wanted to go back to the way it was, he didn't argue with her.
It will be interesting to see what happens after this case is over. If she wants to go back to work, will he support her or not? If I had to guess, he would worry about her, but would back whatever decision she makes.
@gatorgal It looks like your initial review comment was posted on the main episode page. That's available for comments right away, while this review page isn't available until it is written by the reviewer and posted.
Here's a link to your initial comment: http://www.tvfanatic.com/shows/ncis/episodes/season-10/shell-shock-part-i/
Hope this helps.
The review was initially saved with only the introductory section. It's been corrected. Sorry for the posting error.
