I'm sorry to see Alexis back. The writers plumb wore that character out, for me. I, too, envisioned hypnosis as the method used to convert the innocent confessors. I'm glad that they found another method of doing that. Now I am going to have to go back and re-watch the season 2 DVD to see the episodes you mention. Really nice catch, there!
@ croaker, I hold no brief for Bishop. If she worked for me, I would have fired her. And I have fired people, and yes, I have supervised folks off and on for fifty years. I would NEVER tolerate that continued behavior. However, your last comment, about who would marry someone like her, is not reasonable. There is absolutely no accounting for tastes, and nearly everyone can find SOMEONE to marry them. That actress (despite the blonde hair and black eyebrows, very off-putting to me) is beautiful. There are any number of men who would marry Bishop, and never pay any attention to her behavior. Really, as all the show has let out about her husband is his name, there is no point yet to speculation about her marriage. Her lack of political savvy re: her boss and appropriate work behavior, however, is fair game.
I don't recognize this young man, but I am a big fan of the other three actors. This is starting to sound VERY interesting ...
I watched Jack Paar do this show sometimes. I watched Johnny Carson do this show a LOT. I have watched Leno some, although I would have watched more if his network had a stronger broadcast signal in my town. I never saw the Conan O'Brien incarnation as host of the Tonight Show; I regard him as a nasty piece of work, like the pre-heart-attack Letterman was. Jimmy Fallon is a sweet and funny guy, and I will watch him as the host. Giving them the hours of my life is the highest praise I can give these men ... I think that Fallon will do well. He has a generous spirit, and wants his guests to do well. That was said to be one of the secrets to the brilliance of Johnny Carson. I wish Jay Leno well in his retirement.
Dylan Minnette was terrific on Saving Grace.
Never saw it.
Elementary. Just don't put it up against Castle. That would make me really angry. I might even hook up a vcr.
Nice pictures. Godawful dress.
I have never been a fan of Prentiss, nor of the actress who plays her, but this use of her was interesting, and relevant to the story. Strauss appearing was nice, although I had thought that this time period was during the character's alcoholic difficulties. Nevertheless, it was good to see the actress again. The episode was interesting, and very different, and I actually watched it without doing anything else at the same time, very unusual these days. My only quibble would be that the last few minutes were too darkly lit. I could not see what was going on and I found it irritating in the extreme. The use of Tahmoh Penikett was a dead giveaway to me that he was the villain, though. I have never seen him play anything else except a villain. He does them well, but he's thoroughly typecast, to me. I hope they have JJ tell her husband about the lost baby. He has the right to mourn, too. But we seldom see him, so they probably won't. Perhaps it was implied in the no-more-secrets ending.
Nottrampis is right. The character has been changed, and not for the better. Lately, even when he is indulging in one of his flights of fancy, they are just silly, not something from which one can extract a nugget of usefulness.
