I agree that Nate was annoying, but I also agree that he made Michael's family seem all the more realistic, as there is always one person in a family who is the screw-up. So RIP Nate, and thank heaven Anson is gone! I am also glad that Fiona is out of jail, things were pretty crazy for her in there.I also have been a fan of Sharon Gless since she was on Cagney and Lacey, and I have really enjoyed her portrayal of Michaels mom, and I thought how she took the death of her son was pretty realistic, and very well enacted. For those of us over the age of 45, did anyone else get the Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young reference in the title of this episode? "You will find the cost of freedom, buried in the ground. Mother earth will swallow you, lay your body down." (From CSNR's song "Find the Cost of Freedom)
BTW, my favorite moment was when the little boy lead Peter to see Neal in that tower, and Peter couldn't contain his glee at seeing his best friend, so he hugged him! AWWWWWW! See, Peter couldn't live with himself if anything happened to Neal, because they've been crime solving partners and friends for too long for Neal to not be like part of Peter's family. I just hope that Peter gets the drop on that nasty crazy agent before he pops Neal with a gun. And I hope that they all get back to NY, because I think that is where Neal and Mozzies hearts are, and where they can interact with Mrs Suit and Diana and Jones. I LOVED the sandcastle version of NY that Neal made, BTW...so gorgeous.
Reviewer, I think you mean Collins was "akin" to a bull running through a china shop...you might want to catch that typo because it makes the sentence hard to parse.Watchestoomuch, I think you are wrong about Peter, he loves Neal, much in the way that House loved Wilson, and he is willing to go to great lengths to see that his best friend isn't killed by Kramer the rogue agent with an agenda. I think the fact that Peter will bend the rules to help the people he loves only makes him a better FBI agent. I also think Neal has loosened Peter up and made him better able to bend the rules to see justice done. I loved this episode and I love this show. I am so glad to see everyone back in action, especially Mrs Suit, and Mozzie. I adore Mozzie, and hope he comes back to NYC soon, too.
I am so glad that Covert Affairs is back! I really missed Anne and company, and I really, really missed the very hot Chris Gorham, who I long to see without a shirt again! :) I hope that Chris and Anne will make their relationship stronger this season, and though I am sad that Jai is dead and gone, (I agree that he really didn't fit in) I am glad that Auggie and Anne are both on assignments in different parts of the agency and are working hard to solve their various mysteries. I also like that Anne is working for a boss who will treat her as an equal and who allows her to play by the same rules that the guy agents play by, ie using sex to get close to someone to find out what they're doing.Besides, shower sex is yummy, and I think Anne will find out whatever she needs to know from this guy by seducing him.
Oh, and I forgot to mention how sad it makes me that Maura's biological mom was so overwhelmed that she didn't believe Maura and took her daughter out of the room. I thought Kaitlyn was a huge brat and an emotional mess before she went snooping and found the drawing of her mother. I also thought it was ridiculous and short sighted of Kaitlyn to say she doesn't want Maura's kidney, when she might die for want of a matched tissue type on the national donor database. That's cutting your nose off to spite your face, and I doubt that she has that much of a death wish, or, having gone to Oxford, is that stupid.
I agree with Walter about the blantant product placement with the Dr Scholls shoe inserts that Maura gave Angela...I mean sheez! We already have to put up with a lot of commercials, we should have to be sold something during the actual program! I disagree with Florin about Sister whatshername on the show, though, I like her, and I think she's hilarious because of the Rizzoli family's reactions to her...so funny! She's got serious cohones going after that rapper and taking him to task for his foul language lyrics and making the gangster lifestyle seem enticing to young african americans...I see her point. And I LOVE that she calls the one police officer by his given name, Barroll, which means spear! LOL
I love this show, it's got quirky characters, funny dialog and excellent story lines/arcs. It reminds me of Gilmore Girls, a show that I adored for all of its seasons. I don't really feel like it is trying to be anything other than an entertaining show for adults and teenagers both. I enjoy watching the main characters interact with the ballet girls and the weird townspeople, and I think Michelle is hilarious...Fanny is fun, too, but in a different way, and she can be so cranky and obnoxious she becomes irritating. Still, I was glad that they worked together to get the floor fixed and I hope that Fanny will eventually let Michelle teach her students some contemporary dance moves.
Did anyone else notice that Trick was giving Bo a lot of stuff from his ex-wife? That says to me that his ex wife was Bo's mother and that he is really her father, and if he isn't, he knows who is. Oh, and I was glad to see that Kenzi didn't get her weapons for gifts...that was so LAME of Lauren to give her throwing stars! Oh, and I have to say KUDOS to the SyFy channel for giving us TWO episodes of Lost Girl next week, one on Monday and one on Friday...I can hardly wait! I love this show, and I hope it stays on the SyFy channel for many years to come. Oh, and Kenzi's cute neighbor is just that, adorable, I hope we see more of him!
Yes, I agree, this episode was rather depressing for our heroine succubus, Bo, and I felt just awful for her when I saw her sitting in the middle of her birthday party, surrounded by friends but all alone, the only person in the room without a love life. I think that Lauren should have taken the chance to determine a specific amount of years she will be enslaved to the Ash, instead of just bending knee and declaring fealty forever...for a smart woman, she makes some stupid choices. Still, at least she is with Nadia now and will leave Bo alone, thank heaven. I find her character so dull and uninteresting! I would like to see Bo fight for Dyson, or at least try to get his feelings back from the Norn.I do not want Dyson to end up with Ciara permanently, because she's also pretty boring as a character...not at all kick-ass and fun like Bo and Kenzi. She is pretty wimpy and mousy, and I don't really see what Dyson sees in her after having had such a wild rumpus with Bo. Did anyone else notice that Trick was giving Bo a lot of stuff from his ex-wife? That says to me that his ex wife was Bo's mother and that he is really her father, and if he isn't, he knows who is.

I found it an interesting pilot, and watching it with my 12 year old son, it was evident that he found it intriguing as well. We both thought the human lie detector was WONDERFUL and added a few moments of lighthearted laughter to an otherwise serious show. I get that the lead character struggles with his mental illness, and that he's brilliant as well, but, though I never watched Will and Grace, I found his acting to be uneven. Still, the mystery was fascinating and I will watch the show again. I also enjoyed the secondary characters, and I didn't mind the young FBI agent gal at all, she was rather sweet and innocent looking, and her leap from two stories up was pretty cool.
