Have a look at Scene Of The Week (December 1) on spoilertv.com for a couple of opinions on 6.08. I offer them as concisely views that I happen to share ... just my opinion.
I'm not bashing anyone. Sorry if you got that impression, Ani. Opinions are just opinions as you know. If yours differ from mine that's a-okay. I actually see why you could be disappointed by the episode. No big deal.
What I am not enjoying are the personal barbs. Too negative for me. I couldn't even tell you who has said what to whom. Only that a nasty vibe has arrived here where before it was an insult-free zone. Passion is fine but I get off the bus when it becomes disrespectful.
I still enjoy your ideas and reading your point of view, never fear!
Hmmm. What's going on? The level of discourse here is becoming like that for some other shows. Shame. I'll continue to check in for Christine's reviews and will undoubtedly take a peek at the comments but I'm not into negative personal remarks so won't be engaging.
Maybe we should all take a moment and grab some perspective. This is a television show after all.
A wee new tidbit from Rick Porter's zap2it blog about 6.09:
"Jane can't help it. Though he's out of the crime-fighting business, Jane can't help but try to right injustice when he sees it. So when he has a run-in with a local drug dealer, it ends up being bad news for the dealer."
Loving your analyses. It won't be me black balling you rationalgal :) and I'm looking forward to more of the same.
I think the fact is that not all viewers look for the same thing when they watch. Some dig deep, look beyond the minutiae of continuity and plot holes (the criticism of eating children, the recipes) and others do not. For the most part, there is something for each type of viewer to be found in TM but sometimes some are left disappointed. I for one devour the allegorical and the symbolic but I also leave room to enjoy the stuff on the top layer and the fun too.
That, among other things, is what makes TM such an attractive network show for me. It delivers both and delivers them beautifully.
I'm certain the promo pics and videos show he still wears the ring.
This is so good. Very thought provoking. It helps me get inside Patrick Jane's head and understand him in a way I hadn't before. I've always loved the character and thought him fundamentally decent. You have rationalized this and some of the things he has done over the course of the series. Thank you!
Mashburn would definitely have been a cool Red John. He's charming enough to pull off the legions of devoted followers aspect. Thinking Lorelei here. I would have both loved and hated him as RJ because I really liked his character. Plus, the thought of Lisbon unknowingly sleeping with Red John is vile.
Hey all, round table is up.
Holy cats, love this.
