Thanks, Russ! Carissa covered Fringe and did an excellent job. Yes, I'm our American Idol reviewer.
Perhaps Fox IS attempting to get the best ratings as quickly as possible but with an already shortened season, it still seems an odd choice as it interrupts the flow of the narrative. You know, the one we're still waiting to hear. ;)
I'm hopeful that this will come together. I think it will. I hope. I worry that Fox's cable approach of only giving it 13 episodes a season might hurt the storytelling though if they don't pull it together soon.
And yeah, I don't get the airing out of order either. Never have. It's so bizarre to me. I understand when an episode gets flipped around because the material coincides with a real-world event and the network worries it will be too much too soon, but barring that circumstance, I don't get it.
LOL. Fair enough! Pizza is definitely a favorite of mine, too.
I also found the copy of the wrecking ball video RIDICULOUS. Marley would NEEEEEEVER do that. Ever. I can only assume it's for the YouTube hits of the imitation. I hated it.
I don't think they're trying to put Mellie and Fitz back together. I think they're just showing us that they're trying to make this political thing work. The hole in the story is what happened while Fitz was governor of California. Hopefully we'll get to see that at some point.
I agree with everything you just said here except I don't think Fitz was worthless when she sold her soul for him and while I don't like him, I do't think he's worthless now. I think he's weak and has never been able to stand up for himself, but I think he's a pawn in his dad's game just as much as anybody else is. I, too, understand why Mellie has done everything she's done. She's given up absolutely EVERYTHING for him.
The statement was meant tongue in cheek, but when it comes to his marriage, Fitz is rarely a good guy, and I'm sorry, but carrying on an affair doesn't win him any points with me.
What we really need to see is what happened between Fitz and Mellie when he was the governor. That's the hole in this story.
You're right. This isn't the first overtly sexual song to be sung on the show. And I've complained about the others as well only I wasn't writing these reviews then.
I give them a pass on Push It because the point of that was that it was inappropriate and the glee club was trying desperately to have the students of McKinley find them hip. They did that one without Will's approval.
Yes, but we went from a day scene in Ohio to a night scene in New York when presumably events are happening simultaneously in both locations. It's a small, stupid thing, ergo why it's called a nitpick.
I edited the post last night to remove the part about him dying because I heard what he said when I rewatched to write the quotes. So no, Elijah's not going to die. Whether or not Elijah should forgive him is up to Elijah.
Clearly the Elena thing still makes perfect sense. My rhetoric was unclear. But it's not wrong of me to want to see Klaus get busy a little more often, is it?
