I'm pretty sure they just use one stage now, starting last season. This is where the finals will be. Since they only do one week of semifinals they just do it all in the same place. Speaking of...I hate that they cut it from 24 to 12 in one week now. I really enjoyed when they would cut two guys and two girls for the first few weeks.
Yes the Raylan/Gutterson banter was fantastic!
@cfc- Thanks for the edit!
@Maria- I'm with you. Just complete trickery that they forced so that Daniel wouldn't die. Not very interesting. @Matt- "Louis CK on Parks and Recreation. The funniest comedian on the funniest show? Yeah. It's hard to go wrong with that." Wow. This was easily the worst thing of the week. I would love to argue over that fact at some point.
@Miranda- Battle Royale between Voice and X Factor? More like a slam dunk. There is definitely a conversation to be had in deciding between Voice and Idol, but X Factor doesn't belong in the same conversation. It was just a very mediocre attempt in its first season.
I pick The Voice, but come back to me when the awful Battle Rounds begin.
@Eric- I knew I recognized her from somewhere. I guess those seven season one episodes wasn't enough to jog my memory.
@oth- I don't think anyone thinks Julian is beating himself up too much. He has every right to be as hard on himself as he would like, and when it comes to your kids, why wouldn't he? I think what some are complaining about (me included) is that we don't like seeing him upset. I understand why the character is doing it, I just wish he hadn't made the mistake in the first place, so that he now has to act this way. Fun Julian is a more entertaining Julian.
@Cathy- "Anyone watching this show from the beginning knows Dan has acted worse. You don't actually believe her reformed himself a few years ago, did you?" I do indeed believe there is a good chance Dan is trying to reform himself. When I said it would be a horrible character arc, I was referring to his time over the entire series. To have this guy, who got as low as he did in killing his brother, come back and do something almost as terrible in kidnapping and harming his own son, would be a pretty awful picture to paint. I think the more likely conclusion is that this is in fact Dan Scott's redemption. He saved the day before, in taking out Nanny Carrie, but saving Nathan from whatever monster has him captured, might be what he needs to do in order to be redeemed at all.
@mustang- you got it! there are a lot of good quotes!
