With the exception of the funeral scene at the end which did make me choke up quite a bit, I found the rest of the ep to be a snoozer. Oh, if you wanna include the camerawork and the prequel aspects, I suppose I can give points for that (didn't consider it until I read it here), but it just felt like "one more break in the action" with Wo Fat still out there and the mystery regarding Steve's Mom.
Dear Admiral Mc Douche, MIT has isolated Tim? Well the apple didn't fall far from that tree did it? in case you missed it, the Navy estranged you from your wife, mother, and children. Oh yeah ....sorry you're sick.
Kono sticks the dismount not just once (the car), but TWICE (the crane)!!!!! And her "Have a nice day!" to the FBI guys when it's revealed they didn't have tabs on him all night was PERFECT!!!!!
The reviewer's right IMO--a few TOO many twists and again, the subplots were nowhere to be found (Steve's mother, Kono's boyfriend / boyfriend-in-law). Oh and Chin....CALL HER!!!!!!!!!!!
Add me to the camp that was underwhelmed. I guess that as a two-parter, I shouldn't expect much resolution to the case, but couldn't we have at least found out what was in the damn box? THAT would have been SOME consolation, but to talk it to death and do nothing was a cheap and easy ploy.
As for Corbett, yes, he looks like hell. Not sure if it's the lighting, the make-up, that his character is supposed to look emotionally damaged or a combo. It seems like good casting even if it isn't aesthetically pleasing.
Oh...and bunking with Granger--I'd quit!!!
Not up to standards IMO. Frankly, I wasn't "feelin'" the roller derby thing--the action scenes were WAAAAAAAAY too tame and safe and well, girlie...almost camp. Also, I'm with some of the other posters--how'd H50 land this case anyway? Was it because they were somehow associated with Dog's case and this girl just HAPPENED to fall to earth at the precise moment of capture? As for Doris' storyline, I had to rewind some when Catherine mentioned Mangosa because having been peppered with re-runs, these minor story elements went forgotten. And yes, what of Kono's boyfriend and his sinister brother? Let's move things along huh?
I thought this was a very adult episode--the cast dressed for a dinner party, helped a friend through an emotional crisis, and still made me laugh.
I agree with the reviewer--the writers REALLY need to know when "enough is enough" where Sheldon is concerned.
What a HILARIOUS coincidence that there was a minor gay subplot directly affecting both NCIS class clowns...on the same broadcast night (On NCIS, DiNozzo was mistaken for half a gay couple because he was bickering with his partner (undercover) agent...while wearing a PINK shirt).
Dear Costume Director, a long sleeve linen shirt and long pants....at a Carribean resort? Really? I guess you've never been there.
On a different topic, what a HILARIOUS coincidence that there was a minor gay subplot directly affecting both NCIS class clowns...on the same broadcast night (On NCIS: LA, Deeks had to play gay to attract a villain's interest).
A show that includes Granger in a full-time role makes me queasy; I don't like his character and I don't like that every time he shows up on NCIS' doorstep, he brings a large steaming pile o' mess with him.
Bullet-proof vest or not, if you subdue an armed attacker, DISARM THE ATTACKER before you pat yourself on the back!!!
