I find myself actually rooting (ironically) for Root to free the machine more and more the more that's shown about it, and thinking that Finch is more of the villain of the 2 of them. He basically created a sentient being, his child for all intents and purposes, and put in a program to force it to kill itself over and over again. It would kinda be like a guy cloning a baby every midnight and then killing said baby the following midnight.
@CroLuva That's the only issue I had with the episode. I mean, Pelant can't be watching EVERYTHING, just slip Bones a note out of view of any cameras, with something on it like "Pelant is blackmailing me to stop the marriage -Booth" pretend to drop the marriage, then have the wedding once Pelant is dealt with, no needless drama. In fact, they should have all cameras in and around the Jeffersonian taken down and replaced with ones only on wires without internet connections of any kind, as well as any others around the DC area as they can manage, and have a new policy instated that only in soundproof safe rooms with no technology whatsoever may any REAL discussions about Pelant and any cases that have even the slightest to do with him, as well as placing all information that aren't plants for Pelant only on paper or at least only on computers without any cable or wireless ports.
@Eileen @aisha I'm hoping they don't try to redeem Klaus. Klaus has done far too much evil over the centuries for a redemption to really be believable. If the writers are smart, they'll go with Evil Vs Evil plots where Klaus turns out to be the lesser. Since Klaus is already incredibly overpowered as it is, they'll also have to introduce much more powerful creatures into the mythos or have Klaus lose a lot of his power in order for the idea that he couldn't just vamprun over and kill them without ever taking a scratch to ever work. An example is Marcel, Klaus can just up and kill him and his vamps anytime he feels like it, the idea that he could be a credible threat is ridiculous.
As long as Elijah is around most of the time, the Originals spinoff will get an A in my book, don't care much for everybody else. What I'm most happy about is that this will mean that the Orignials will be gone from TVD for the most part, the thing was already so heavily focused on the Originals that it was turning into "The Orignial Show" as it is.
A pretty good episode, if somewhat predictable. I knew from the outset that Arastoo was going to get infected, since being one of the squinterns they can afford to stick in a reason he'd be gone for a while and he is expendable enough to kill off. I also knew that Arastoo would survive, unlike Vincent or Fisher he's not hated enough by the audience to get killed off (personally though, I'd rather have had just about any squintern killed off except Vincent or Fisher). What I was pleasantly surprised to see didn't happen and was dreading the whole episode was the B.S. bit of dialog, something akin to "I must be objective, I can't have someone around that affects my judgement, bye" that ends all relationships between the boss and the subordinate in fiction. I'm glad to see that when the inevitable breakup happens, they aren't going to shoehorn in such a ridiculous breakup excuse as that.
@Ugh EXACTLY! It's been made quite clear that Carter doesn't really care for Family Guy, it's style of humor, or it's characters, yet for some reason he's decided to spend his time reviewing it. Somebody who doesn't understand how a particular show/book/movie etc works and why isn't going to rate it well regardless of how good it is, but somebody who does understand is able to distinguish between what is genuninely good about it and what is truly bad. In short, Carter, if you don't like a show, you shouldn't be reviewing it.
"Well, the plot never really felt like it got going on one consistent thread." Carter, have you ever actually watched Family Guy before? No episode of Family Guy has a plot that was on anything that could possibly be considered "a consistent thread" from it's very first episode. Jumping around from story to story several times an episode without really ever finishing whatever the previous story was has always been standard fare for the show's entire existence.
I think that Bones' refusal to believe that her daughter bit other kids isn't about her belief that her child can do no wrong, in fact she's perfectly aware that Christine can, but refusing to believe that her child could do something so... average is what she objects to, which is perfectly in-character for her. If there's one thing that Brennan has always been throughout the run of the show it's that she's been extremely arrogant, perceiving herself as superior to the vast majority of people, especially when it comes to intelligence. ANYONE who refers to Bones as average in any area whatsoever offends her greatly, it's one of the few things that she will ignore all evidence of no matter how much of it is shoved in her face, and this would naturally include any children she has. She refuses to believe Christine could possibly do something like bite other kids because it's something a normal kid would do, and she can't accept that something that came from her is anything less than exceptional.
@M And that's under the assumption that curing the originator of the bloodline doesn't cure the entire bloodline along with it, in which case Katherine could probably kill Klaus without a problem, but she'd be a normal human again, and Katherine revels in being a undead bloodsucker.
"And yet I fear that her defense of Sweets and their shared moment in the bone room is leading somewhere I would personally rather the writers didn't go--a reunion between Sweets and Daisy and a rekindling of their romance." Miranda, we all know that's precisely where this is going, whether we like it or not. Pretty much every episode that Daisy has been in since the break up has had at least one scene with Sweets and Daisy that makes it obvious the writers are trying to ease them back together, and for the most part the two of them can't shut up about each other whenever both are in the episode. In fact, that's pretty much Daisy's purpose since the break up, she probably would have been kicked off the show entirely if weren't for this "will they or won't they?" dynamic Sweets and Daisy have.
