Fairly Legal Review: The Titanic Syndrome

The last line of my previous comment should be fixed to read, "Throughout the history of this show, Kate has been written as a SELFISH 12 year old kid."

"And if Kate's been there for weeks why hasn't she bought some food rather than griping about what's in Lauren's fridge.
     "I know Kate works long hours but she could take an hour and do some grocery shopping, or how about looking for a place of her own. It's not like she can't afford it so what's holding her back?
     "Despite her progress, Kate still has her issues like when she yelled at Justin in the middle of his fundraising dinner. I know she was upset about Danny but making a scene during something that was important to Justin seemed childish." Throughout the history of this show, Kate has been written as a 12 year old kid.

Carla Day wrote,"There were non-stop laughs from beginning to end. Possibly, the best episode. Ever." Since the laughs from me were much less frequent than when I've watched most other episodes, I disagree. The Sheldon character has become merely predictable, and therefore is no longer funny. I think the show would be much funnier if for the next set of episodes (probably next season) the writers thought of Sheldon as merely Ted Baxter from the Mary Tyler Moore show. For you folks making the autism diagnosis (with which I offer no opinion at this time), is extreme selfishness (as opposed to insensitivity to others) one of the symptoms or indicators????

"only Kate and DA Aaron Davidson ARE neither nice nor interesting." Fixed that. Also, I'd like to see more Lauren-centric episodes. "Even with the lawsuit between the fashion designers, my first instinct was to side with Lauren. You remain loyal to your client. But her client certainly held little respect for her and was quick to make a public spectacle of telling her so when he didn't get his way."
     I think your and Lauren's initial instincts were correct. But, assuming for the sake of argument that Ben's recitation of the facts were correct, it became clear that the original client's position was unreasonable, as was his later behavior. By the way, law firms often have several clients within the same industry. However, representing at the same time an employer and a former employee/current competitor can sometimes be so uncomfortable, from a personal point of view, as to be undoable.

Deanne, good point, particularly as to the female patient. I think the script indicated that the male one was a year away from being in that condition. dmanflan, I think the story is alleging that the system does not always work as it should. I thought this was a well-written episode, with interesting story lines. I thought all the actors did very well, too. My problem with this show is that I neither like nor find interesting the Kate character. Yes, she looks beautiful. But of all the characters who appear more than once on this show, only Kate and DA Aaron Davidson neither nice nor interesting. These are characters I would not miss if they were gone.

Damn! This Archer season is over already. "I have to feel like Lana stripping down to her space pasties was a little unnecessary." And I have to feel we should see more of Lana, and Cheryl.

"Following a couple weeks off the air, Two and a Half Men returned with an improved episode last night, and it was due to the integration of supporting characters." Yes! But still only a 3 star episode.

"Obviously, Mary's going to grapple with being a single mom" Depends on how the writers set this up. The Dad is living right down the street. There is no reason, so far, for the Mary character to hog parenthood.

What was the basis for springing Boyd from jail? I don't remember Tanner confessing that he rigged the bomb in the sheriff's car.
