LOL...so true! But I'll take November sweeps over next May's finale!!
THIS. It's amazing how little we know about the titular character of this show - I'm looking forward to learning more about what made Castle become Castle.
Great review! Oh Avery....why, why'd you do it? I'm SO glad the baby is his, but ugh, wasn't Juliette and Avery's relationship complicated enough without throwing yet another one night stand into it?! I mean, really, Nashville writers. There really was enough drama to work with. I agree - Hayden and Jonathan have incredible chemistry. I love Deacon. I love how real he is. I love how he called Maddie out on her whiny nonsense, and I love how he bares his emotions when he comforted her. Charles Esten is incredible. I have always, always wanted Gunnar and Scarlett together, and I'm still waiting on that. Those two don't really work well with anyone else. They have way more chemistry together than any of their other pairings. Still not interested in Will and what's-her-face... ...And I'm finding myself losing interest in Rayna and Luke. They're kinda bland as a couple, but there's something duplicitous about Luke. Maybe it's just that he has different expectations about their marriage than he's saying. I don't know.
I agree. His faith in others is steadfast and unwavering, but he's always, ALWAYS having to defend and prove himself.
That was the first thing I thought when I heard Dollmaker..."wasn't he just on Arrow?"
re ATLA: I've watched the full series about 4 or 5 times (I've lost count), and that particular episode at least 6 times, it's one of my favourites. The scene in question happens right after Zuko burns Toph's feet:https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
Great review, Christine :-) Has anyone watched Avatar:The Last Airbender, and remember that scene where Zuko yells, "Why am I so bad at being good?!?" That's all I could hear in my head with Regina and Rumple today. Goodness, these two are frustrating. I think Regina's biggest problem isn't being inherently bad, but it's her need for instant gratification. She has no patience, she can't wait anything out, she can't allow time to pass and let things better. Everything she wants, every answer must be now, now, now, when she wants it. I know she's in pain, but geez... That being said, I don't think I've ever wanted a character to die as much as I want Marian to. Regina wasn't kidding, she's SO vanilla. Is it just me, or has the show's budget increased? The special effects - the trolls and the ice monster - were WAY better than we're used to.
I met Charles (then still Chip) Esten when I had lymphoma, a few years ago. I love that he's doing so much to raise awareness of blood cancers. I'm glad that his daughter is doing well.
1: Maybe I need to rewatch the episode, but to me it felt disjointed, or unsettled. Though I can't really put my finger on why that is. However, I did enjoy parts of it - if someone had told me that one of my favourite scenes of any episode would involve Ward and Skye... 2. I enjoyed the new agents - they brought a different perspective to it all. I was really disappointed when Xena was killed off right in the first episode. 3. The effects were fantastic! Though I'm with Jim, Allison and Kathleen...I'm okay with suspension of disbelief, but this was a bit much to ask. There is no reason in the world of physics that would explain why his asphalt body was able to withstand - and destroy - that car coming at him! 4: The Skye/Ward scene was one of my favourites. Ward got WAY more interesting when he went all evil, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with him this season. 5. Okay. The nerd part of me that's worked in clinical neurology research for most of her professional life was SUPER excited at seeing such a fantastic portrayal of temporal lobe damage and the resulting aphasia. However, the other part of me, whose favourite thing about this show was Fitz and Simmons, was absolutely devastated!! My poor Fitz!! And finding out Simmons was a hallucination...that just broke me. I don't care if how they do it, I don't care if it's going to be scientifically ridiculous - they need to fix him!! 6. All I want is for them to fix Fitz and for Simmons to come back!
Man, it better be Avery's child, and I hope they establish that FAST. I really don't like questionable paternity stories...ugh. I'm hoping that we see Juliette continue to grow as a person, and I think that motherhood and Avery may make that happen for her. Definitely not Jeff. I detest Jeff Fordham and if I never see him again on this screen, it would be too soon. As for Rayna - I honestly don't know how she chose Luke, because even *I* was feeling what Deacon was bringing in the scene at his house. Through my screen. I was feeling it. Holy. Damn that Charles Esten. I generally like Scarlett, she's just been given dumb storylines. I think they're going back to the Scarlett/Gunnar pairing, though. When Avery said, "I always thought a better man would have come for you" and Gunnar walked right into the scene... I find it really, really hard to care about Will and Layla.
