LOL...sooo, you're a Prince fan, right? :-) I thought this was the best episode of New Girl all season, and not even because of Prince. The writing was the sharpest it's been, and the whole cast NAILED it this time around. I thought it got a little slower towards the end (but who cares, Prince was singing), but the first 10 minutes or so was just fantastic. Also - did anyone else get "Finger Prince" flashbacks of Animaniacs when Jess pointed her "finger guns" at Prince?
Just responding to your comment down below - I don't think for a minute that this is the end of the "missing file" at all. I think Arrow's been pretty good with tying up loose ends - and the way they've spun the Laurel story actually has given me more faith in the writers than before. Also - I have to say that THIS is another reason why I love TV Fanatic. I think this is one of the few places left where we can talk and argue and discuss the shows we love while still being respectful of others' opinions. :-)
Very cool! I had no idea :-)
I did not know that at all! Thanks for the info, will give them a listen.
Rosa was hilarious in this episode, agreed. It's the way her hypothetical questions just went on and on..."how many guns do I still have hidden? What about the axe? Do I still have my throwing stars?" I'm glad you're enjoying the show - and thanks for checking out the review every week :)
I totally agree with you and Dreamrose that it seemed strange that they dropped the missing file. Right there with you. What you said though is exactly my point. Things might have gone differently if it were brought to them by another source. But Laurel isn't a credible source to them. She was successfully set-up and completely discredited, to the point where no logical mind would believe her accusations. What's happening to her is what you've been saying all along when all of us were simply annoyed with Laurel - they're pushing her to rock bottom. I'm not bashing Laurel - I happened to think this was a great episode for her. I'm just trying to see it from everyone's perspective.
I hope you don't mind a contrary opinion, but I respectfully disagree with your points on Laurel. I think you're being too harsh on Oliver and everyone else. We, as viewers, know that Laurel's telling the truth. However, if you look at it from the POV of the other characters - to them, she doesn't have valid points at all. All Laurel has is wild conjecture and unfounded accusations, compounded on by irrational behaviour. Laurel had no proof of her accusations against Blood, and her only "lead" was the word of a woman committed to an asylum. He also freely admitted to knowing Cyrus Gold, so no one really has a reason to suspect him. And if all that wasn't enough, she was found to have an opioid addiction - I mean, between stealing pills and the apparent paranoia, you couldn't get more classic drug addict behaviour. We all know that Laurel's being set up, but there's no reason for any other character to think so. No logical person would lend any credence to her words after all that, and I would find it less believable if they did. Also, Oliver - I don't think he actually went to Blood to give him the "benefit of the doubt." I actually thought he was being sarcastic, and went to see Blood to get a face to face opinion on whether he was lying or not. He never told Sebastian that Laurel complained - I think he wanted to see how Blood would react when talking about Laurel. Lastly - Roy - can't we assume that part of his stupidity is due to the Mirakuru? I mean, they keep drilling into our heads that it messes with people's minds - perhaps this isn't just stunted growth on his part, but As for being suspected simply because his last name is sinister...well, you probably shouldn't watch Hannibal LOL :-) (no one on the show has figured out it rhymes with cannibal yet...honestly...) I do agree that the stuff on the island was pointless - (though I don't quite agree that sisters do what Laurel supposedly did "all the time"). (sigh) No more round tables for me after this, right? :-)
LOL - I totally caught that, Chris :-) Had me wondering how far they were gonna go back there!
Oh - my - goodness. THAT KISS - someone call the fire department - holy crow that was hot! Even the way Danny just grabbed the bottle from her hand and threw it aside...whew! I agree that Nick and Jess from New Girl was a better kiss just because of its execution - no one saw it coming at the end of that episode until it happened. But this was pretty good. Well done, Mindy Project!!
Hmmm...Well, it won't be: - Henry - ABC is owned by Disney and I can't see them killing off a kid...- Rumpel - because Robert Carlyle is the best thing about this show and they would be INSANE to let him go...- Regina - because Lana Parilla is the second best thing about this show and they'd be insane to let her go...- Emma - this whole story is mostly about her...- Snow - this story is almost as much about her as it is about Emma. That leaves Hook, Charming, Neal and Belle as the most expendable. Belle - Given that it took 2.5 seasons for Rumpel to actually reach redemption and sacrifice, I don't think they'll kill Belle off quite yet. She's going to be instrumental in his reform. Charming - Will they separate Snow and Charming? Possibly. Although they're more likely to go down the Snow/Charming second baby route. Josh Dallas dating Ginnifer Goodwin also makes his departure less likely... Hook - Not sure if they're willing to waste the potential between Emma and Hook. He's a much more interesting fellow, and has the most potential. BUT - he has less history with the others than anyone else. That make him most expendable, but the fan support he has would make his death REALLY sting and meaningful anyway. Neal - He already "died" once. Not sure if they want to go down the same emotional path with those characters, given that they've already experienced his death. But he's also the least interesting character. I HOPE it's Neal who leaves. But I THINK it will be Hook.
