Well, Drew2461, I had a lot going on in the 80s and TV wasn't my thing at the time. I did know enough to know Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman starred in the series, and I recall she wore jackets with shoulder pads. To use your Sherlock example, I don't think I need to know details about the other offerings to review this episode of the new one, because variety is the spice of life. I thought it might be helpful for you all to know where I was coming from. Perhaps I was wrong. I often am - very. Belle, it's entirely possible I am missing out on great entertainment by missing those older shows, and I really wish I had the time available to watch all the wonderful programming I've missed over the years. Someday! :-)
Your review was much better than the episode. Nicely done!
I've never even heard of Cat Deely. Oh the happiness of not watching reality or competitions on TV. :-)
@Hooligan Agree on Dunn. Smarmy! Sharon was taking photos of him for evidence. Having been assaulted, he came out on the sunny side as far as charges are concerned. Hey - Weren't Starsky and Hutch detectives? They were always dressed down. I always figured detectives needed to blend in. Major Crimes only blends in with Wall Street! ;-)
@marymary My my, you really ARE quite contrary, aren't you? I can dislike whomever I like, thank you very much, as you seem wont to do with me. I enjoyed Jonny's portrayal very much. He was affable and yet still filled with snark. On Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch couldn't pull off the affability. I'll enjoy his other works, but not Sherlock. If the show sucks, why are you bothering to read the round table discussion of it? There are plenty of other shows on the site for your enjoyment and for which you do not have to insult those discussing it to feel superior in your Americanism. Please get your insults correct, as my name is CARISSA. Perhaps Clarissa might have taken this personally. For shame, Marie, really.
Thanks Miranda...I didn't get to see the episode but I can tell I'm going to love it. Great job breaking down the Raydor/Rusty dynamic and what it brings to the team. You guys need to remember that Provenza is an older man. Change isn't his favorite, but he's willing to adapt and that's what makes his character human. If you all tell me you just roll with every situation in your usual form, I'm not going to buy it. :-)
Thank you for commenting, @Hooligan... I've been waiting to see if anyone loved this episode as much as I did. I was going to comment on Sykes walking into the room talking without thinking about who might be in there, but I decided Sanchez, Raydor and Provenza deserved the positive limelight for a change. Somehow, I think they will be plenty of more time to stick it to Sykes in the future! I differ on Rusty, obviously. They've written him to be so smart and sensible that I don't mind him at all. If he was still a whining kid, I'd be concerned. Instead, I like what he and Sharon have. It's different and I'm okay with that.
Please note!! I have no idea if the series is ending. They kept saying "until it all ends" and were making things very dramatic, but I don't believe they would have ended the show with such a cliffhanger. However, it IS a show about the Army, and no matter when they decide to end it, soldiers will keep being deployed, families will lose loved ones and the cycle will continue. So how would they end it? All of that said, it's also entirely possible it's coming back as a completely different show. They said it's merging with an Air Force base. Could Army Wives still be the title? Maybe that's the catch!!
@Nicole, you're right. I didn't even think about the dark Doctor because I was so enjoying everything else. But the changes coming his way are most certainly affecting him. I think it's really interesting to watch his slow progression to something darker, all while trying to be over the top funny to keep anyone from catching on. Just took me a while after watching to spot it. Thanks for the heads up.
I couldn't for the life of me even think of what ABC show Carlyle was on. Guess I don't miss that show at all.
