Well thank you Lilian. THAT clears it up. Please accept my gratitude and see your name up above!
Wow -- you even gave minutes! You're awesome! I'll look them up tomorrow. Cheers!
Everybody keeps talking about the red shoes from past episodes. Do you happen to know the episode? I don't recall red shoes and I'd love to look it up. Thanks!
Agreed on all points. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
You're one smart cookie! LOL Sorry I didn't go back to look. That was a brilliant catch and I WILL write about it in a future review with credit to you!
Hi Scarlett...It's not been the most pleasant way to end out the middle of the road with BaTB and many people stopped following me on Twitter because of this review. It did give me new insight into fandom, however. I learned that a lot of people learn there is a negative review and jump over here to read not knowing my history with the series -- missing the many near 5 star reviews I have awarded a show many other sites have written off. There has been much about BaTB that has been worthy of praise, but things fell apart in what seemed like desperation. I'm glad you mentioned the open questions. I never even thought of Vincent's nephew until another commenter pointed it out. That's a lost opportunity they can't get back in a way that will feel credible at this point. If Gabe had walked away and Vin's nephew had knocked on the door at the end of this hour, my review would have been completely different. Interesting things to think about. Thanks for dropping by!!
We are TV fanatics writing about TV for TV lovers. Of course I'll reply to people who have concerns. The longer term readers get a better understanding of us as a site and of individuals who review the shows. I don't review a show entirely from a point outside of fandom. If I didn't enjoy watching a show, I would stop reviewing it. That's why I put out there when I think things have gone wrong. If it sounds like it's going out to friends, in some cases it is. Many people who have commented on our site have written for us, as well. We're about the people and the fans. That doesn't mean that it's always good times and happy faces. Like I said, I have many episodes that were highly rated this season and I loved the direction. If you only read back three episodes, you'd not see the love I feel for the show. I get to know who comes by and comments help shape my future reviews because I know what matters to the readers. That's not for everyone, however, and we're not a site that posts 2000+ word reviews, so your choice to read elsewhere is understood. I hope you enjoy the rest of the season when it returns this summer!
All the well-written positive critiques didn't bring you to the site. You only come by to defend the honor of the show against a negative review. Did you comment here? http://www.tvfanatic.com/2014/...or here: http://www.tvfanatic.com/2014/...or here: http://www.tvfanatic.com/2013/...or here: http://www.tvfanatic.com/2013/...They were all highly regarded episodes by me. Many fans popped in to say they were dissatisfied with the season so far, others were happy. That's the way this works. Sometimes episodes resonate and other times they don't. I'm happy for you that you've found your peace with the series. I was happy, but not I'm back to waiting again.
If I knew more about her, I would have noted it in the review. However -- I knew your guys would geek out over it here in the comments and have my back. I can always count on you! ;-)
For me, the hype was that the new intern was charming and not in the least bit intimidated by Brennan and her sharp tongue. Her rudeness didn't put him off in the slightest and that threw her off. I like that as a change of pace.
