I hope they get someone better than the person who ran it this past season. I was largely bored, and not with the marriage. With the cases. There was at least one episode, and perhaps two, which I never even saw. I did not even bother to watch them online. I will see them when I get the season's DVD later. Probably. I used to re-watch each season several times after I got it, and go back and re-watch them all when each new one came out. I have not opened the one for the previous season, nor ordered the one for this season, yet. This show used to remind me of the great movies between William Powell and Myrna Loy. No longer. I don't want it cancelled. I want it to return to its roots.
The character of the father-in-law aside, the comment at the end made me cry. My mother suffered from Alzheimer's the last years of her life, and four years before she died, she had already forgotten that she ever had a daughter. She only remembered the sons. It is a very odd feeling to have your mother look you in the eye and talk to you as though you are someone else entirely. However, it was a comfort to me to consider that she no longer remembered me, when in the last couple of years, I was unable to go to the state where she lived and visit her. I missed her, but she did NOT miss me. And I was glad of it. Asner's last comment reverberated with me. It also reminds me of Glen Campbell's last song. "I'm Not Gonna Miss You". The writers would seem to me to have some experience here, and it was good to see two such capable actors portray this terrible situation. There was power in their scenes. The little boy who plays Jack is certainly growing up fast ....
Did noone else catch the delicious comment, "It's like The Towering Inferno in here!"? Robert Wagner was IN The Towering Inferno -- his character was one of the first to die .... That was a treat for the viewers, such as they do on Castle frequently.
I really wanted to slap McGee. He is too old for that nonsense.
Said I, seriously. I loathed Paget Brewster's character, and I thought her a poor actress, from the Ali McGraw school of acting. TIlt your head sideways and open your mouth a little and pant. JLH is a great improvement. She emotes, and does not just pant.
Nick Stokes is not being killed off; he went to San Diego to run their CSI unit there.
They said that this is the SEASON finale, not the SERIES finale. If they are leaving it open for Nick to return, then I think we can safely assume that there may still be a season 16 next year. (After all, the same network DID give us an abbreviated The Mentalist season to wind up everything.) That said, I agree that moving it to Sunday surely did mess up my schedule of watching it. I do not have any way of recording it, so I have to remember to catch it online later. Sundays are not possible. And that is a major pain for me. I really like the show. I hate it when the Powers Who Be dink around with the schedules like this. They killed off CSI New York for no apparent reason, too.
Don't forget Elias. He has a shot at taking down Dominic, too. And excellent reasons for doing it.
"Do you agree with Pride's choice to keep Laurel in the dark?" I think that under the circumstances in this specific episode, the kind story at the end was justified. As far as how Pride has been telling Laurel only kind grandfather stories all her life, I don't know. It is a situation I have given a great deal of thought, as I am faced with a similar question in my own life, and I have yet to decide whether or not to tell my nieces of the true story behind something in our family history, or not. I was told at a young age, and I have been thinking about it for decades, and I still have not decided. It is true what happened, but do they need to know it? Am I happier from knowing it? No. Do I wish I did not know it? I don't know. That is a really good question.
Kinda shocked me at the gitgo. I lived in Rochelle, IL for six years, and worked there another two. It is not quite as provincial as they make it out.
