@katempw don't know if i'm really arguing for smith. it's just they're certainly making him plugged in. i'm sure i'm wrong about everything.
wonder if people who aren't consistent viewers are having a hard time keeping up with the show? they're bringing back a lot of one ep characters and quickly describing their backstories.
also why does hightower always have a gun on jane? it's stupid. hasn't he proved himself over and over for her?
@katempw hi there. i have missed you!
@katempw and @debz. yeah, the greeting makes my teeth hurt. and i too expected it to be something profound.
the one thing we do know is that kirkland had figured out that the identifying greeting was tyger, tyger. as far as we know, jane hasn't yet.
so maybe kirkland had been passing himself of as a red john-keteer hoping to meet rj? to bertram, who bought into it. not to smith, because he's rj or very close to rj.
although if the rj club had known about kirkland, wouldn't they have offed him way before this? or just when it was clear he might pass on knowledge to jane? seems like alot of these guys have never met rj?
now the shallow end. simon baker looks so beautiful this season. but skinny. and we're getting a few radiant smiles. two last night.
i hate lisbon's hair. don't get me wrong, the hair itself is very nice hair. it's just very hard on her face with that heavy slant of dark brown. it makes her look witchy, like kate middleton. it's the side part and the waves. looks corny. the side part helps women (most of us) look good because it compensates for their asymmetry. bring back the bangs or go for the pixie cut. something graphic to show off the fact that robin has perfect symmetry. but that's just me.
i think that smith's hat has been thrown in the ring as being rj. he was the one bossing bertram around in the wedding ep. asking bertram how much jane knew. he also took umbrage at being referred to as low-level by kirkland. also interesting to think about bertram being in that meeting with kirkland eavesdropping on lisbon last season. kirkland asked bertram how much lisbon knew. does this mean bertram is innocent? actually thinks he's involved in something kosher with all these guys? in those two eps, it seemed that smith, kirkland and bertram were all on the same side. theories? i long for the days of rj as a simple, very unpleasant killer with people who'd help him sometimes. question? did partridge say tyger tyger to see if lisbon was part of the rj gang? or was he giving her the password to give her a clue to bringing down the group? obvious that a lot of the members don't know each other.
have to say that i snarked out loud when smith and the driver said tyger tyger to each other. nanoo-nanoo. dopey. plus if they were using it to identify each other, why do it after the killing?
i enjoyed the ep- any rj ep. but i feel like there is so much shark-jumping and pray the writers will somehow save me from feeling that way by the end of the season. even if i suspend disbelief, i'm getting nervous that they'll ruin the series in retrospect. i adore simon as patrick. without him, this would be plain bad.
loved the portrayal of kirkland. corrigan could play nixon nicely. also liked the way he got all jane's jokes very quickly and was playful himself. "why I oughta." jimmy cagney meets ralph kramden.
i'm not feeling anything this season between jane and lisbon. no sizzle. hightower and jane should have sex. once. rigsby as a sexual being makes me barf.
@ani hello there. i would agree that that was a very intimate scene between co-workers. jane functions under the cloak of being a maniac, a troublemaker and a widower. so he is cut maximum slack for being inappropriate. in the past, lisbon would have swatted him. aside from that, they felt very disconnected on a personal level in this ep. but that's just me.
any ep written by bruno heller is a great one. usually the most momentous too.
@mrs alan shore esq. indeed. hysterical. thanks for that.
@entwife ooh, i usually play madame defarge on this site. yeah, you're right, the hell with rigsby and van pelt. mealymouthed both. and for that matter, what has little ben done for us lately?
@katempw hello there. i love the word "scarpering." so descriptive. those scenes were fun. i wonder what the suspect's plan was there?
also, how fake was that bella vista view? this show uses those effects in a very buckeye way.
my opinion. if rj kills anyone on the team, rigsby is my vote. i like the guy but it wouldn't completely kill me and turn me off like if rj hurt the pristine and lovely grace. wayne could sacrifice himself and grace could remarry someone smarter. forget about rj killing cho or lisbon or heaven forfend, jane. i would lose the will to live.
@entwife really? only two witnesses in CA? funny. but has that ever stopped jane? he would hide under grace's skirt or come as cho's conjoined twin or as lisbon's medical alert animal.
i so agree about 21 gun salute. most of the time, (not always) i find daniel cerone to be a bit of an old lady in the eps he writes. seems like the writer they get to kiss cbs's/warner bros' ass by hewing closely to the episode formula.
i do think simon looks ineffably beautiful this year with this fine patina about him.
