Arrow Round Table: "League of Assassins"

1. HAHAHAHA! Maybe some plexiglass at this point?
2. I think he'll keep the secret, and I don't think he's made the connection between Oliver and Sara yet. Mostly because Ollie did a good job of "proving" he wasn't the vigilante in season 1. Only a matter of time, though.
3. I agree with all of you.
4. My first thought was that Thea was Merlyn's child.
5. I love how it changed the dynamic of team Arrow. Oliver's finally opening up to Diggle about all the insanity on the island. Also, everything everyone said :-) Fun RT!

Grimm Review: Deadly Dishes

Great review as usual. Revisiting the Blutbaden/Bauerschwein feud was a lot of fun, and intense at points. Juliette remains useful, I'm intrigued by the lingering side effects of the zombification on Nick, and I'm actually now getting curious about Adalind (but that story needs to speed up a bit). I'm with you - my favourite scene, hands down, was the one between Nick and Renard, where Renard questions why he's feeling so guilty. Although I don't think that the captain was trying to stir Nick up, I think he was just annoyed. It was a valid question - and from Renard's point of view, as a half-Wesen, he can see both sides.
Nick has killed a lot of Wesen, and mostly out of self-defense. And Nick said himself, he IS starting to remember, so he knows that the guy goaded him and tried to kill him. So if he isn't feeling guilty because of his lack of control (because now that he remembers, that doesn't apply), and he knows it was self-defense, why DOES he feel guilty? While Nick has a lot of Wesen friends, he's still a Grimm, and he's still human, and he's still different than they are, with an oppressive history that he can't always ignore. He may not feel like an outsider, but there will always be situations that make him aware of these things. It's quite possible that this is one of those situations I gotta give Grimm credit for going there, though. It takes balls to address analogues to race relations that directly.

1. Agreed with Nathan fan below - I think that was all in trying to avoid her dad. 2. I think the ceremony itself will be simple and elegant, but the reception's gonna be a part-AY! 3. I was pleasantly surprised. They don't show a lot of how the relationship is progressing - it just kinda "is" - so it was nice to hear Kate worrying about the family that she's going to be a part of. 4. I didn't like the Alexis story arc at all, mostly because I felt that it was untrue to the character that we already knew. She went from a mature, wise early teen to an impulsive, petulant adult. I feel like there must have been a way to introduce conflict between Alexis and her dad without her devolving. 5. I'm with Dave - Lanie and Kate. Some of my favourite scenes in season 1 were the friendship between the two, and I love when Lanie gives advice. She gives the best advice out of all the adults on the show.

That's exciting! I'd watch them all, but I'd be particularly be looking forward to Iron Fist and Luke Cage. Also really glad about this because it'll give some ethnic diversity to the superhero representation on the small/big screen.

New Girl Review: Bunny Money

I don't know - I thought this was one of the better episodes this season. Not as good as anything we saw in Season 2, but still solid. Winston was on point as usual, and I think that the punch that Nick delivered should go down as one of the greatest punches in sitcom history. Also, one of the things that elevated this episode was how great the guest star was - Taye Diggs was so very funny. That was one of New Girl's best uses of a guest star in a very, VERY long time...maybe since Dermot Mulroney.

Arrow Review: The Canary Sings

Meh - I'm just discussing the review. But that's a rather grand assumption to make of all viewers who dislike a character, don't you think? For example, I happen to not care who ends up with who - I watch this show because I'm a girl who loves comics and their adaptations, and for the action and the crime drama, not particularly for the soapy relationship stuff. I dislike Laurel's character - in this incarnation - because I find her angst increasingly contrived and poorly acted. I hardly think that makes me sexist.

Arrow Review: The Canary Sings

I have to say - the fight choreography with Arrow and Canary is just STELLAR. It is SO fun watching them fight together; it makes me wish that they could always be partners. It's interesting that you think that we're supposed to hate Laurel right now. Because if that's true, the writers are doing a fantastic job. I was never much of a fan of the character (or the actress, really), but now we're at the point where I audibly groan whenever she's on screen. If they really do have great plans to redeem her character, well, that will have to be super exciting. Sarah's time on the boat really didn't make any sense. Her entire flashback seemed kind of contrived until they brought in Professor Ivo (OMG are we gonna get AMAZO?!? Will Ivo connected to Starling City's S.T.A.R. Labs?!?). Also, is anyone else hoping that Quentin Lance joins Team Arrow?

Wow - Nathan Fillion won Best Dramatic Actor (or was it Crime Drama Actor) two years in a row, and this year didn't even crack the nods. Also - YEAH for Emma/Hook for Best On-Screen Chemistry!

Once Upon a Time Round Table: "Ariel"

1. I think my favourite scene was Regina's pep talk with Rumple. It was kinda sad that the Dark One had to be reminded that he was the Dark One, but I loved Regina's confidence. 2. Meh, why not. It's not like Emma actually considers them "parents,", and they'd do a good job. 3. Rumple would be a better teacher, but Regina would definitely be more fun to watch. 4. Charming's for the group. But I'm with Christine - Hook's confession broke my heart. Realizing that he loves Emma, and KNOWINGLY put himself in the situation where he had to tell her that, knowing it was a means to reunite her with the man she actually loves - that's heartbreaking. 5. I'd honestly forgotten about Storybrooke, but I'm okay with a revisit. On another note, is anyone else finding it harder to ignore that dude that posts random questions about random family members of random characters on random shows?
