I was highly disappointed that there wasn't even a mention of Naval Air Station Patuxent River. They had to pass right by Pax to get to Norfolk from Baltimore and it's an AIR STATION; planes galore which they said they were looking for. I know, it's just a show and Norfolk is much bigger than Pax, but it was just a bit disappointing to see them skip over a naval base in a show about the navy. NCIS at least has had a few episodes set there, even if they get the terrain wrong (it's on a peninsula, guys, no mountains!)
They would have to pass Patuxent River Naval Air Station to get to Norfolk from Virginia so it would make sense for them to stop there along the way, but I kind of doubt they will, especially since I don't think they've ever mentioned Pax River on the show.
Am I the only one who noticed the way Kate didn't really drink her champaign and the look she gave it? I see next season being the last and I'm okay with that.
Tom Everett Scott is also Shades in That Thing You Do! Every time I see him I yell "Shades!" And the guy who played Matthew Simmons was Michael, Adam's brother on Hawaii 5-0 and the voice of Hiro's brother in Big Hero 6.
Personally I liked the episode. I don't like when tv shows who do backdoor pilots put the regular cast in the background and highlight the new cast (Supernatural did this). I'm watching that show because I want to see that show, not the pilot of another show. But this episode I felt balanced the regular cast of Chicago Fire while introducing the cast of Chicago Med. They all worked well together and I especially liked the inclusion of Jay Halstead, Ruzek, and Dawson from Chicago PD. I really like April and think she will be good for Severide. Will Halstead will fit in well. And Hannah was fine for the small amount of time she was featured. I really liked the psychiatrist too. The disease storyline, well come on they do stuff like that all the time on tv and you know they aren't going to kill the cast. It didn't make me enjoy the episode any less. As for Dawson and Casey....am I the only one who saw a bit of something between Will and Gabby? I really liked Jay and Gabby together before PD started so if Will and Gabby get together that should make for some interesting interactions.
I agree about "2009"; it didn't belong and didn't offer anything new other than someone FINALLY sang "Popular" on Glee (I was wanting someone to do a Rachel Berry "Popular" makeover years ago). Finn was missing from that episode and it was REALLY obvious and heartbreaking. I would have rather had a two hour episode like "Dreams Come True". I would have liked to see more of Tina, Artie, Mercedes, and Sam's futures. Sam was a big part of this last season but was barely featured in the finale. I would have liked to see the former members more than just a quick camera shot as they all sang: Puck, Matt (Matt!!!), Mike, Lauren, Sugar, Quinn, Brittany, Santana, Jake, Ryder, Joe...they were all there but you barely saw a shot of them before the camera went to someone else. I'm glad they focused on the core members who started it all....and Blaine. All that said, I cried. Glee has went wonderful, it has been terrible. I have hated the way they've treated some characters (Tina) and wish they would have touched on country music BEFORE the finale. But when you live a life like that, all of your high school years in choir and theater, the show speaks to you. I hear "A Thousand Miles" and I remember someone suddenly playing it on the piano and everyone immediately singing along. I Hear "Hey Ya" and I remember being in a classroom goofing around before we went out on stage at competition. Glee, which was more dramatic than what we experienced in real life, still represented us. "Being a part of something special makes you special," even if you're only special in the eyes of a small, special group.
I really liked Mack when he first joined the team and the only comfort in Tripp's death was knowing that Mack has still lived. Now I'm really wishing Tripp had lived and Mack hadn't. I liked Bobbi too but I am not a fan of their secret agenda and Mack's turning on the team.
"How do people just burst into song? How does everybody just magically know the lyrics?" Spend an hour with a bunch of theater/chorus people. It happens. A lot. And harmonies aren't that difficult if you are already a singer. I spent all of my years in school as an alto and find myself instinctively singing the harmonies or creating my own for basically any song I sing along to. I have watched a group of high schools gather around a piano when someone starts playing and easily join in and start singing along. I probably have video somewhere too. And yeah that's a select group of people but it does happen and those are the kinds of people in Glee.
The actor was Michael Weston and he's been on just about everything. Burn Notice, Psych, White Collar, Law and Order: SVU, House, CSI: NY, CSI, Supernatural, Scrubs....
I work on a naval base and all of the navy and marine guys I know where their dress uniforms to events where they need to dress up. Whether this is required or not I don't know, but I'd say it's probably the same with the other military branches, hence why Puck is in his uniform at the wedding. The bigger issue for me is how under utilized he is and the glaringly obvious absence of Quinn yet again.
