Though I've never been a huge country music fan, this show has me in a thrall, mainly because the music is just FANTASTIC. It is by turns tender, beautiful, exciting, rockin' and just plan awesome. I have yet to see an episode where I am not moved by at least one song on this show. My husband keeps laughing at me for watching it because he knows I love rock music, and can't understand why I am riveted to the screen once a week. I sincerely hope that this show isn't cancelled. It is just so creative, so well written and the young actors on the show do a fantastic job. Some of the older ones, not so much, though the guy who plays Deacon is just sexy as heck. That kiss was YUMMY. I am glad Teddy asked for a divorce, because I know if someone kissed me like that, I'd be ready to toss my knickers under his bed for some hot, sweaty monkey love!And I adore Scarlett and Gunnar. Avery needs to get lost. What a creep.
I am with GeneralRapunzel (you and Mrs Alex O have the best screen names!) in that I adore Paul Blackthorne as an actor (does anyone remember him as Harry Dresden on the late, lamented Dresden Files TV show?) but this role has him as a frothing freakin' nutball when it comes to the Hood. I mean seriously, there is no reason for him to risk his daughter's life so easily and without hardly a qualm! And I, too, caught that part where the voices were not distorted when they should have been. Wierd. Seems like a continuity error, but then, I gather the CW is famous for those. I find myself liking Diggle more and more, especially at times when Oliver seems so clueless about his own mother.
By the way, "reader" your post has a grammar error, so I hardly think you're in a position to tell the reviewer that she needs to "write more sophisticated." I do think that all the TV Fanatic reviews could use a good proofreader, though, because I often find mistakes in them. However, I understand if they don't have the time or budget for that kind of position.
I am with you guys in that the ending scene was marvelous, and I love that Sherlock is maturing and was able to stay sober and clean in the midst of all that temptation by the sleazy drug dealer. What an arse that guy was. Ugh. I would LOVE a "We Believe" t-shirt! I believe in Sherlock, too!
And of course, I think it is interesting that he didn't let Holmes know that he now knows that she is not being paid by his dad as a sober companion anymore. It shows that he really cares about her and doesn't want her to leave.
with Lauren Grahams character asking advice of Rory, her daughter, who got into an Ivy League college and seemed to be much more mature than her mother most of the time. I also found Scotty annoying and hope he doesn't return to the show. He was a lazy jerk, and I thought it was pathetic that her mother was using her children to help her get along. I really felt for Michelle, having had to grow up with a mom like that.
I totally agree with the reviewer that Milly is a huge pain in the toukas, and I find her manic prattle and her ruthless, rude and ridiculous demands and attitude to be a huge turn off for an otherwise charming show.
I also questioned how Sasha was able to get an apartment that nice (it would be very expensive in California) and still get all the utilities and soforth up and running by herself. I can imagine her parents gave her some credit cards to use, but how did she sign a lease as a minor, unless she has gotten an "emancipation" from her parents legally, which would make her only a minor when it comes to drinking and soforth. She would be allowed to rent an apartment by herself, because she's legally a quasi-adult. But I find Boo and her boyfriend hilarious, especially when it comes to their dealing with the kids and soforth. I don't find it at all unusual, but I do find it a bit crazy that the kids are more mature than the adults. Still, that was the way it was on Gilmore Girls, too, with Lauren Grahams character often going to Rory for advice and Rory being the smart girl who gets into an Ivy League college, etc.
I enjoyed this ep, particularly the zingy one-liners and the dancing! I was also glad to see Sally tell Aidan to get his Sh*t together and go back to trying to be human and normal, or whatever is normal for that household. And I loved that Erin called Aidan "Twilight" LOL! That was pretty good stuff, and that he called her Teen Wolf. The moments of introspection and levity are what save this show from being a real downer and more horrific than I can tolerate as a viewer.
And I seriously do NOT want to see more of Linda Lavin's creepy corpse-ash eating witch! YUCK!
BTW, I liked this episode, but wasn't happy with how Santana acted toward Brittany. I mean how immature is it to tell Sam that he can't have her, though Santana herself isn't going to date her again, anyway? Doesn't make sense, and I'm glad that she decided to move in with Kurt and Rachel! I think Santana will take to NYC like a cat to cream. She is certainly catty enough to be a waitress in a NYC restaurant! Anyway, I LOVED Kurt in this ep, especially his song from Les Mis...lordy, what a voice! Though I enjoy Rachel's voice, I find her immaturity and attitude annoying as heck, but when I hear her sing, and when I hear her voice and Kurts together, my heart soars!
I think it is totally realistic for a high school girl to have a crush on a very sexy and adorable gay guy. I went to college with just such a guy, very talented musician and dancer and actor, and we 'dated' in a totally platonic way, but I loved that guy because we had a lot in common (we both loved musical theater, books, and Gene Kelly). Did I think I would end up marrying him? Ah, no. I broke off my relationship with him when I found out he was going to marry the sister of a guy he was in love with, just so he could be closer to the heterosexual guy, who was a devout Christian and didn't want to admit his 'friend' was gay because he believed it to be against "Gods will". Also, a large number of the lesbians I went to college with ended up marrying men and having families. When asked, most said they were 'experimenting' with their sexuality in high school and college. So I agree that your sexuality is not always set in stone when you're young.
I am so steamed at CBS and Blue Bloods for firing the actress who plays Jackie Curatola, Danny's partner, because she has Celiac Disease, because I live with Crohns, and I know how hard it is to work long hours when you have to make time for the bathroom and being sick. She says that they not only wrote her character out after she collapsed on the set, they won't allow her to work elsewhere (probably because of her contract). I think that is horrible, and I though I have watched Blue Bloods since it began, I am thinking of boycotting the show over their treatment of Det. Jackie, who was a great partner for Danny. I think the gals he's had since have been pretty boring, really.
