I think that Root WOULD die for the machine, but I don't see them having her actually do it any time soon. So I don't think she WILL die for the machine ... this season.
Besides his brilliant talent as an actor, it was a delight to see Keith Carradine cast as an old-time singer/song writer, since that is precisely what he is. He received an Academy Award for best song from the movie Nashville, which he wrote and sang. He has recorded albums. I was very sorry tonight that we did not get to hear him sing that whole song. I would happily listen to him sing for hours. He also did a memorable two-episode turn as a serial killer on Criminal Minds, and he was the most significant boy friend that Debra Morgan had on Dexter, Frank Lundy. His talent is endless. I know that Jimmy and his wife decided to adopt first, but there is no biological reason why they cannot conceive a child of their own. Perhaps that might be a good direction to go just now for that story line. They could try adoption again later on down the line.
Considering he said he has had two hip surgeries, I think that his physical limitations are severe. But he still has that wonderful smile, and a can-do attitude. He has more than a decade on me, but he did far better than I could. I think he will be voted off first thing, but I commend him for trying. And it was very good to see him.
I too was watching Cho, and noted that he never took his eyes off the guns pointed at him. Smart man. I never liked LaRoche, but I did appreciate that his last thought was for his dog. If Rigsby and Van Pelt don't take the dog, I would be very annoyed. They now owe him. I wondered whether the picture on LaRoche's desk, which we only saw from the back, was of his dog.
While I am pleased that Reid's mother is supposed to be getting mentally more healthy, I was sad not to get to see Jane Lynch play her again. I enjoy her appearances, whether brief or intense. She does her very well, and it sheds a great deal of light on Spencer's character.
I get happy when one of them uses the word "Always". I don't read spoilers, so I was surprised when Vulcan Simmons turned around -- but I remembered him right away. I think now, as I thought the first time he appeared, that his excellence at portraying an evil person must be why he was removed as the boss on Bones after the first season. He does nasty very well. I have never seen him do nice. The water torture reminded me of Ryan. These torturerers seem to have been more efficient at it than the ones who tortured Ryan. I recall he was a smart-mouth right up until the shooting started. Beckett seemed nearly unconscious. I imagine that is painful to film. Impressive to say that they moved all of that money in that short of a time .... I am very tired of this story line, though.
Back when I was in my middle twenties, I had two roommates in a smallish apartment. One of them went nuts, moved in her sister, and both their boy friends, and I had to move into the dining room. Our other roommate and I put up with this for some months, and then we bit the bullet and kicked all of them out. She took money from her boy friend/fiance to pay her increased share of the rent, and I started working a third job to come up with the money for mine. And the four we kicked out were combined, nowhere as nasty as Sheldon. The character they have been writing for him lately is so over-the-top that even a reasonable and submissive guy like Leonard should not be putting up with him. They go too far.
Great idea! The use of Mrs. Cooper is akin to a nuclear weapon ... Sheldon has no defense. She should also be used sparingly, no matter how much we love her (and I certainly do!) But this would have been a good time. This episode he was over the top nasty and manipulative and arrogant and downright ugly. There was nothing cute or redeeming about what he did. They write these episodes a little too often, where Sheldon is the kind of person no sane person would tolerate.
I thought Sheldon's self satisfaction when he said that sometimes the baby wins was actually quite repellent. The word which immediately came to mind was not printable on this page. Sometimes he really is quite a nasty piece of work. I suppose that these characters are well-written, because I don't like some aspects of every single one of them. They are layered. But this episode struck me as less funny, and more nasty.
That is kind of a slanted poll. There is no possible choice to indicate that it was believable. I worked in various aspects of the child welfare system, off and on, in two states, from 1976--2009. There is absolutely nothing that is beyond the bounds of what persons will do to a child. Giving them away -- oh, yes. That is mild, compared to the possibilities. And the realities. I lived in Washington State between 1979 and 1985. The details now escape me, but I believe that it was the Spokane library system which instituted a new method of checking out books, so that the past user history of any book was impossible to retrieve. This was in the changeover period from sign-out cards to bar codes and computer systems, and it was a reaction against religious fanatics who wanted to publicly excoriate readers of sexually-explicit books. Anyway, that was when I read the Spokane paper, and that was where I read about it. So yes, public librarians take an intense interest in the welfare of their patrons. In Boise, a decade or so ago, there was a huge foofahrah between religious fanatics and library boards, about banning books. The local cities got involved.
