Poor Lydia. She always seems to bend over backward for her associates, whether CI's, witnesses or partners, and they usually meet some kind of tragic ending. Hopefully things start looking up for her as the season progresses. She deserves better.
At the opposite end of the spectrum you have Officers Dewey and "New Guy Officer" Danny. Their only concern seems to be how to get as many bad people off the street as possible by any means necessary. Even if that involves letting injured suspects bleed out while awaiting an ambulance. They show the callused attitude caused by years of exposure to the violence of LA's worst neighborhoods.
Someone needs to shut Dewey up with a punch to the head. I'm talking about the way he was teasing Tang over that YouTube video. I found it difficult to watch. Maybe Cooper will take care of that now that he's seen the video for himself. Didn't Cooper make eye contact with the eventual station shooter earlier in the episode?
I haven't watched the second hour yet so I haven't read the comments here in case of spoilers. The show has caught my interest more than enough to say I'll be watching the next few eps. I noticed at the end of the first hour that the combination entered on the number pad at the holding facility was 6323. It could be meaningless but the year the inmates disappeared was 19(63) and the prisoner number of the inmate they apprehended was 20(23). Just wondering if there may be a connection there somewhere. The series is from J.J. Abrams after all.
Hats off to the Nerdy-types! They (we?) make things more interesting. Super episode! I share in the feeling that the stage is being set for Hank to be let in on some of the supernatural aspects of Nick's life. I wouldn't say I wish for Eddie to take Hank's place. As Hank learns more about Nick's lineage and the existence of "monsters", I'm confident he'll become a character that's much more appreciated.
I rarely acknowledge wardrobe while watching tv. My mind just throws it into the general background. I noticed a couple people commented favorably on the EQ's outfit in the woods. I must agree. Stunning! This does not mean I will be watching Melissa and Joan on Oscar night!!!
Following comment has nothing to do with The Finder:
@Sue Ann Thanks for reply. The episode I first saw on the first season DVD of NCIS was a story surrounding Airforce One and featured agent Todd. If I understand you correctly, you're saying that that was not the actual pilot per se? The funny thing is that I just bought the first season of JAG because on a whim I took a look at the cast and crew info section (direcTV ) for NCIS and saw a lot of connections between the cast and crew of the two series. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for the JAG episode you're referring to as I continue to get more seasons on DVD. Thanks again!!!
My first reaction at using 9/11 to recruit police was the same as the Chief's. But look at it a different way. Let's say the city decided to increase salaries in order to acquire more recruits. Would you want people choosing to become cops because they can make more money or because they want to protect the public and stop tragedies like 9/11 from happening (and I know that the two don't have to be mutually exclusive)?
Wouldn't mind seeing Megan date the Capt. It would make for a lot of interesting "conflict of interest" stories. Didn't miss Dani. Peter wasn't wrong about supporting his old partner, he could have handled it better though. He should have been well aware that investigators follow evidence and not taken it so personally when Dr. Hunt was simply going where the evidence led. Even if the evidence happened to lead in a direction he would have preferred not to follow.
Part of the reason I enjoy series by David E. Kelley is because they are so quirky and at the same time have a message that can be pretty deep. One never knows quite what to expect and IMO that's a plus. I don't think there will ever be a viable case involving something as ridiculous as a person dressing up as a super hero and delivering vigilante justice. However, the issue being addressed is real and the fact that so many scumbags get away with chronic domestic abuse makes it seem as though only a vigilante/superhero can deliver the justice that so many victims need and just aren't granted by the legal system.
Enjoyed the show. At least enough to watch a couple more eps. before I decide whether it's something I want to DVR every week. It seems tv viewers want immediate satisfaction, to have everything explained in one show. I don't think that's possible. Personally, I can't give total approval or disapproval after one episode.
True story: I bought season one of NCIS about 4 years ago because I found a dirt cheap used version and I'd heard it was a good series. After watching the pilot I thought the show was horrible. I didn't watch the next ep. until 2 months later when I had nothing else to watch. Now it's one of my favorites.
It's obvious; The Dark Wizard, after being slain by Rumple, was reincarnated as Jimmy Page. Thus the name/symbol, ZoSo from Led Zeppelin's 4th album. Emma must have been a Zeppelin groupie and had a fling with Page whereupon Henry was conceived. Jimmy Page is Henry's father.
Of course I'm being facetious. The best part about this series is that there are so many opportunities to let your imagination run wild. I enjoy reading everyone's speculations as much as watching the show itself.
