It was interesting finally seeing the mother... she seems like a lovely actress to play the role. However, I couldn't help but have a few tears during Ted's speech to Lily about Robin and deep down I know I'll probably be one of the HIMYM fans that will always say the show got it wrong :) Next season should be good though.
I agree with marissa - I knew Ted would know she needed help. I'm glad they didn't kiss but I got the feeling when Robin held Ted's hand something was there that she needs and it isn't there with Barney. However, I'm team Robin and Ted so I'm biased. :)
It was such a good episode and I didn't see it coming when my eyes got all watery listening to Andy singing 'Sarah McLachlan - I Will Remember You' :D ...seriously. Everything was fantastic about this episode and I'm honestly going to miss these characters.
Are they just no longer doing reviews for The Office? Personally, I found myself with a few tears during this weeks episode. Only two eps to go. :(
I completely agree with Jade's entire comment but especially "[This is] what we get in lieu of a build up to the finale? The complete oversight of everything that made the ZW relationship so special and popular? A stupid OOC cheating fiasco for no fallout or real emotional journey at all? A resurgence of make believe feelings between Z and G that were neither shown nor built on any real moments of connection at all?" But the entire comment needs to be the post-it note left on Leila's desk and signed, 85% of the viewers.
(Cont...) characters at Spring Break and Prom) and every character finding themselves in a romantic storyline with two other characters because a handful of viewers through the idea out there and the writers wrote it in. The cheating event required realistic reactions by both Zoe and Wadeâ€™s characters but we just didnâ€™t see any of that, and that comment the tumblr user made is spot on.
"I am so sick and tired of this love triangle. How can George and Tansy be so in love, moving in together, and then in the following episode just be over. How do the writers expect us viewers to keep up or even enjoy it? They've tainted the Wade and Zoe relationship with the cheating scandal." < THIS! I have so many thoughts on this show and they're not good. I canâ€™t stand the way they write these characters so poorly and what confuses me is that they actually do have the foundation there to make a good show. They just canâ€™t seem to execute the rest of it. The thing is that, the CW has done well with broadening their demographic with Hart of Dixie because there are many viewers that are past their early twenties which watch it. However, weâ€™re watching this wanting to see how these southern characters handle life but so often this show misses the mark between light and realistic. Instead, weâ€™re watching short lived relationship after relationship (25+/30 year old characters at Spring Break and Prom) and every character finding themselves in a romantic storyline with two other characters because a handful of viewers through the idea out there and the writers wrote it in. The cheating event required realistic reactions by both Zoe and Wadeâ€™s characters but we just didnâ€™t see any of that, and that comment the tumblr user made is spot on.
This review... I'm on the same page. However, Camille... I feel like she's Caroline 2.0 (just a little more grown up). I'm hoping the plot twist in the finale will be Caroline leaving Mystic Falls for New Orleans somehow because her and Klaus are simply hilarious and yet sexy together but I can see that I might be greatly let down with that hopeful wish. I love the idea of this show because at times TVD can feel a little too innocent whilst The Originals definitely does what CW have been trying to do, and that's achieve a broader demographic. My sister-in-law is in her early thirties and I'm in my late twenties and we're definitely on board.
This was such a good review! I'm on the same wave length with every thought. Especially that note... "[Katherine] might as well have written: "Yo dude, The CW is considering a spinoff titled The Originals. Get down to New Orleans!" :D Also the Tyler scene through me as well. I was sure it was Silas but yeah, it was definitely all about making Klaus look like a bit of a softy. To be honest, I'm strangely all for Caroline going with Klaus to New Orleans. I'd love it if his "King" speech was actually to Caroline (it would make sense because there's also a vulnerability about the speech). I could see her all "what?! ...Oh god Klaus." but she seems to get him (his good and bad points). She'd bring such a good balance to the show.
I'm still all for Robin and Ted... always have been, always will be.
