Hey, what about "Trask, you were so machine-like, so cold and robotic, I bet this character only used one-fifth of Burn Gorman's talent, so ably displayed on TORCHWOOD"? The thing about Burn Gorman on Torchwood was that he was a sex-maniac doctor with a very dry sense of humor and a gruff exterior. He goes from that to playing this cold and unfeeling robotic member of the Initiative who dies after only appearing a couple of times. What a waste of talent!Still, I am glad that Padma is gone (What? I can't stand weak-kneed women who constantly look to men to save their arses, or their family's arse) and now hopefully glorious Nolan can get on with helping dear Ems take down the Graysons!
I caught on to the song "The Wanderer" right away, because Odin the god of Norse mythology was called a wanderer, "However, it could also mean Odin represented an older cult of proto-Germanic hunter-gatherers, his association with being a wanderer and having shamanic qualities.." Because part of his mythology was being thrown out by the other gods and made to wander among humans (and probably fae, which was how he could have met Bo's mom) and having sex with human women to create titans or heroic humans. I think that Lauren is going to be in trouble, but I also think she's lied to Bo too many times, so I hope that this will end their relationship for good. I hope that Bo and Tamsin and Dyson can get back together and help one another, because they're all good together and Bo needs to feed off of Fae more than weak humans. LOVED Kenzi in this ep (but I love her in every ep), especially SuperKenz, and I think that someone has gotten to Hale to turn him into such a jerk. Can't wait for next week!
I totally agree with the reviewer...the biting storyline was just plain STUPID. It made Brennan look like an elitist shrew and Booth look like a cuckolded fool. And I am a mom, so I know that children go through a biting phase, and that it doesn't matter how extraordinary the child is, he or she will probably go through many of the behavioral stages that children exhibit. We had a specialist tell us that toddlers bite because they can't yet express their frustrations and delights in words, so they bite it out. Usually this phase doesn't last long, and the child learns to use their words to express their emotions. Still, I did enjoy the sauce storyline with Opie and Thurston, aka Finn and Hodgins. Awesome!
I am with the reviewer, this episode had me crying like crazy for most of the episode. I sincerely hope that Kenny doesn't have to be killed because he's some weird vampire hybrid now. And I hope that Josh and Nora have a little time to be happy together and that they can made regular babies between them, not wolf pups. I also loved all the quips in this ep, all the lines about Jewish tradition and how to kill a witch, etc. Funny stuff. Now I gather that poor Sally has to deal with the ghost of that stupid Linda Lavin witch during eternity, though, which could really suck.
This episode really upset the apple cart with all the relationships, and now I am worried that Karen is going to get her heart broken or get some kind of STD or HIV from her new boyfriend who is a drug user and kind of a creep (though he's a talented creep, and he has MAJOR chemistry with Karen). Still, I think if he had a relationship with OLD, washed out Derek, that would be a huge mistake, too. He's got enough gray hair to be her father, and he always looks like he just got out of bed with messy hair and didn't bother to shower. He's also not handsome AT ALL, and his accent and attitude scream "cheap and jaded." ICK. I can't imagine why anyone would sleep with him if it weren't to further her career. I loved Anna's song and I am thrilled that Julia seems to be flirting again. I don't like that Tom has sold out, though. I love this show, and will be really sad to see it go!
Though I really hate horror movies and zombies and all that, I loved the non-cannibalistic/evil/damaged young man parts of the ep, especially all the banter between Tommy and Megan. I will say, though, that I love Ethan and Curtis, and I miss it when they aren't a significant part of the episode. Especially Curtis, who is hilarious, whereas Ethan is just an annoying Geek.I can't say that I am thrilled with Luke Perry having a returning role on the show, but I would much rather that Megan slept with Tommy than with Luke Perry's character, because he's so boring. I was also glad to learn that they don't have to give the rabies antidote/vaccination in the stomach with half foot large bore needles like they used to, either. I worked as a nurse and I always felt so sorry for people undergoing that treatment, because it HURT like heck, from what they told me.
Wow, this was an amazing episode! As the reviewer said, so much has happened in six weeks that it was hard to keep up with all of the plot twists. Because Nolan is my favorite character *besides Em, of course* I was so upset to see him a physical wreak, all hollow eyed and obsessive. And it nearly killed me when Emily told him that Padma is dead, and then tried to comfort him...I could see that she is heartbroken for him, and worried about Nolan because he's her best friend.However, aside from their touching moments together, the Revenge thing seems to be in full bloom, with the whole "your grown up adopted boy is back" thing, and I was thrilled that she fainted, I only wish she'd hit her head harder on the marble floor. And hurrah for Charlotte and her right hook! Finally she shows some backbone! I wish we didn't have to wait 4 weeks for a new episode.
I was glad that Bo and Lauren broke up this week, because, honestly, I have never been a fan of Dr Lauren Boring...she's just so vanilla and washes out next to Bo's exciting, vivid character (and Kenzi's too). But I did love the end scene with Lauren and Dyson talking about why they love her and why it's so hard to love her. I seriously hope that she gets back together, at least for healing, with Dyson, and I hope that she takes other interesting Fae lovers, because they can handle her taking a lot the sexual chi from them without becoming depleted or dying (or whining about it like Lauren did). I was glad to see Linda Hamilton on the show, but I have a feeling Tamsin is going to have to choose between her and Bo, and I bet Bo will win. I would love to know who the Wanderer is, and what he wants with Bo, but I imagine we will see soon enough. I love this show!
I am with Sue Ann, I love John Corbett, and having met the man on the set of Northern Exposure, I can honestly say that he's a great guy in person--kind, generous and with a great sense of humor. I would only watch Red to see him, as none of the other characters were at all interesting, IMHO. Yet if they run Body of Proof against it, I will have to go with Body of Proof, as that's the show that my son and I watch together. I also adore NCIS LA because of Hetty/Linda Hunt and Deeks and a bit of Kenzi, because I love her chemistry with Deeks. I've also grown fond of LL Cool J during the run of the show, and I like Eric the techie, too.
DC, I don't think that Derek, who is a player and sleeps with practically every leading lady he comes across, would have any idea how to "treasure" Karen, especially with the shabby way he treated Ivy. He's not even good looking, and his hair is always sticking up like he stuck his finger in a light sockett...and he wears crappy clothing and looks like he just woke up after a bender, all hung over. He's also much older than Karen, and I can't imagine her having a decent relationship with him at all. Whereas Jimmy is young, handsome and sexy, and I think he will be able to have a good, if volatile, relationship with Karen because he is obviously in love with her. He's got talent and a great voice and he and Karen together are going to be unstoppable! I also was glad that Sam had a chance to do his Ben Vereen imitation (Nat King Cole was never a dancer) and that Tom grew a pair!
