Once again Curtis said "Macadangdang". I hope that since Curtis' own insecurities were briefly touched upon this ep we get an ep in which the storyline revolves more around him and Ethan. I'm still undecided when it comes to Dani. I don't know if she's a game player or simply oblivious to the signals she's sending. As SUE ANN said, "She just bothers me". There's still hope for Ethan finding the girl of his dreams. Consider Chuck Bartowski. He was an electronics store clerk and found his dream girl. Ethan is a doctor!

Very good news.

Leverage Review: A Double Prong Monkey Con

Didn't have a prob. with Hardison's camera time. Maybe because I looked at it from another POV. I don't think the ep. was so much about focusing on Hardison (it could have been anyone in that role) as it was using Hardison to show what it takes to plan and execute a con, what could go wrong, and dealing with unforseen setbacks. Also, as Jim pointed out, we were able to appreciate what Nate must deal with during a job and to see why he is the consumate leader and mastermind. By having Hardison taking jabs at Nate throughout the ep., we were able to see that being the leader means making choices that might not make you popular with the crew, but that are necessary to get the job done. Hardison tried to be a kinder gentler version of Nate which made the crew happy but in the end the plan failed.

Rizzoli & Isles Review: Daddy Issues

When Paddy said the word, "Hope" while he was dying, I think he was telling Maura her birth mother's name. That's the impression I got anyway. I have no doubt our 2 friends will mend fences pretty quickly. With Maura's foster mother in the hospital there will be plenty of oppurtunity for bonding over grief. And let's not forget about her unknown birth mother. Trying to figure out her identity will inevitably provide more bonding moments.

@MISS There were twins. One died a few seconds after birth. He was the one the ghosts were looking after in the final epi. The second child survived. He was the Devil-Child that Constance was raising. I think the last scene took place two or three years later. That's why the child in Constance's care seemed a lot older than his twin.

The Closer Review: One Fatal Moment

Pope really shocked me. I never would have expected him to show such disrespect to the Commissioner. I was waiting the entire episode for him to pull his support at the last minute. I was pleasantly surprised. 2 weeks in a row now that we've seen a kinder, gentler Flynn. It's impressive to see someone who is strong enough of character to relate personal/controversial info. in a public forum.

Yup, Josh did come off as petulant. Once you reach a certain age, your supposed to realize that asking questions of someone who may/may not have abandoned you is the way to get answers. That goes double if you're on your way to prison for shooting a cop. Melony really pi22ed me off this ep. She has a son whom she lied to and withheld letters from that may have helped him grow up not feeling abandoned by the only father figure in his life he cared about. The first thing she should have done is gone and told Josh that it was she who made sure Josh and Korsak's relationship was severed. I won't miss her. @DENEEN: Not ALL of us...

Homeland Review: Bomb In A Bunker

If Brody killed the VP and those responsible for the deaths of 82 children I would have had no problem with that; so long as he did it in such a way as to allow himself to survive and not be implicated in the bombing. Otherwise, his actions would have been totally hypocritical and irrational. One does not avenge the death and suffering of innocents by killing and/or causing the suffering of more innocents (unless his idiotic misinterpretation of scripture tells him to). If Brody was able to carry out his mission that's exactly what he would have done. Brody's own children and family would have become victim's of his vengeance. I think Brody realized this only after his vest malfunctioned and he was able to speak to his daughter (as Bill mentioned below, she helped him snap out of it). Besides being a gripping, emotional, and intense one and a half hours of television, I hope that message at least got through to some people. I think Claire Danes should win every acting award there is for Homeland. I'm no critic, all I have to go on is how an actor makes me feel. I am still haunted by the scene 2 weeks ago when Estes' Secret Servicemen were pulling Carrie's timeline off the wall. The aftershocks still resonate from what I can only describe as a visceral earthquake. That was some powerful stuff!

Tell us how you really feel, Matt. LOL! Hope some changes are in store for next season.

Grimm Review: Warm and Fuzzy

Yeah, what DID happen to that guy who owns the doggie wash? Hopefully someone found him. Eddie is: A cellist, A Christmas Decor Zealot, A collector of antique model trains, A blutbad who can tear your limbs off, An amateur herbalist, and a reluctant hero. Great character! I look forward to Nick showing up at his house because you never know what new facet of Eddie is going to be revealed. What's next? A painter? A sculptor? The host of a local book club? A TV Fanatic staff writer? I thought the scenes with Hank and Holly's mother were nice. It gave us a little more info to help fill out his character.
