Watched him & Barbara Eden in I Dream of Jeannie - what a great show back in the day & I loved the original Dallas - he was so ruthless & conniving & certainly loved him in the new Dallas. I seriously doubt they would ever consider recasting his character - Larry Hagman made that character his own. No one could ever do the job of that character they way he did .. it will be interesting to see what that means for John Ross, SueEllen & Bobby Ewing .. RIP Larry Hagman, aka Major Nelson/J.R. Ewing - you gave us all alot of great tv to watch.
@notavan - I wonder how many days earlier everyone would have been rescued if Owen had not put his calls on auto-voice mail. What we don't know is for all three calls that Boise Memorial made to Owen - how far apart were each of those calls made to him? 30/60/90 min. apart? Or maybe 2/3 hrs. apart? Do you think that if Owen had taken the very first call made to him, do you really think they would have been found/rescued in 1 day or 2? They were out in thick heavy woods - that is what we didn't see either. The rescue itself was stupid - for all the hype it was a total let down because it answered nothing but maybe if this lawsuit goes to court it will. So to keep blaming Owen or hating Owen - Owen isn't the problem. In my opinion, the problem lies with the fact that they could not be FOUND for FOUR days.
@tess - Owen should protect Cristina from??? Now that she has returned to SGMW he isn't her proxy, as she can speak for herself. She left HIM twice. The first time when she told him she was leaving for Mayo after SHE persued him to have good-bye sex & again after he cared for her to get her back on her feet after being rescued & returned to him & she gets in her red car & drives off & then she has a sex-friend while she is still MARRIED to Owen. I'm not sure how much more people think this guy should do for her? Little Miss Independent can be by herself, ALL she needs to do is visit an attorney & file for divorce - it's as easy as that. But that is not what is about to happen ... they love each other too much, their communication level is a minus 50!! Neither of them can stay at the firehouse without the other!
This entire season so far has been great - the acting has been superlative - my only question is this .... where & how did Castle learn how to shoot a gun the way he did in this episode. He's a writer & where is that little vest that says "writer" on it - I don't believe I have seen it yet this season.
Loved the entire episode - but WOW - I would have never guessed that Castle could shoot a gun like that - he had zero problem ripping off rounds ....
I am wondering if Jerry, the pilot, will be the one to help Arizona the most - they have never said he lived or died - then I saw a tweet from Shonda last week telling someone who asked her about Jerry .... her reply was to "stay tuned." Last we saw him, he couldn't feel his legs.
Part II - it is just not him. 4 - I liked Alex asking Arizona when she was returning to Peds & then she asked Callie to sit & watch tv with her. What is wrong with Owen/Cristina & Callie/Arizona - two passive/aggressive relatioships & they are unable to communicate effectively in their respective relationships. I do hope that Callie & Owen become friends - a man & a woman CAN be friends without involving the sex part. 5 - Owen's cheating - I agree - his character was never a cheater - Shonda made him one to add yet another major layer to their relationship/marriage.
1 - ALL scenes with Dr. Thomas/Cristina - when he told her to "back off sister" to ordering the Old Fashioned - just hilarious scenes - she is looking at him differently or will - I am wondering if Wm. Daniels (aged 85 in real life) will become a father figure to Cristina, so to speak. I wonder if Dr. Thomas will teach her about life's situations - being married, having children - I have a feeling HE will be her one true friend in her life. I hope when she goes back to Seattle, he goes with her. He could continue to be her mentor while she is earning her fellowship.2 - Do not like Cristina sleeping with anyone. I agree w/all 3 TVFanatic staffers. She is married - so now, how can she say to Owen "you cheated on me?" Legally married means just that - separated or living together. 3 - Love Owen - this will be interesting with him living in Derek's trailer. I am also wondering if he will step down or be asked to step down from being Chief of Surgery. He said it last season - it is just not him.
@sookie00 - if you love "this old doctor" - not sure if you know of the old 80's tv show, St. Elsewhere. If you can rent/buy the dvd of the show - you won't be sorry. Wm. Daniels has somewhat "reprised" his character, Dr. Mark Craig. I love Cristina's & Dr. Thomas's scenes. I just read that Kevin McKidd said HE cast Wm. Daniels in the "boards" episode last season & Wm. Daniels did such a great job that the writers have written him in for S9. That's all he said. I took that to mean the entire season. I don't want to mislead anyone with this info in case he isn't in the entire season.
Part II - Now Owen's cheating should not ever be an issue. To accuse Owen of doing what Cristina is silly. They are still legally married. I don't buy "well they are separated." I just don't buy it - continues to hurt everyone involved. Maintain ones' integrity by keeping ones' pants pulled up - just sayin' ...
