Hetty's fish was a male guppy. I used to breed guppies.
I liked the knife fish the best. I have kept the rest at one time or another, but never had one of those. Cool fish.
I don't exactly agree that the flashbacks revealed nothing. I may have missed something, but why do they say that the father of the child is Joe, when his ex-wife appears to have no child when she embarks on he two-month affair with Kevin Bacon's character after her divorce becomes final, when she moves into a new house? Just who is the father of that child? Trials in the real world take place many months or sometimes years after the criminal is incarcerated, minus spousal visits. She did not look pregnant to me. Makes me wonder.
I would happily watch Kevin Bacon do anything. That said, I thought this was brilliant. I've been intensively studying serial killers since Ann Rule gave a talk to our staff at National Library week a few decades back. (She used to know Ted Bundy.) I am somewhat astonished that this level of violence is on network TV; I thought they were too hag-ridden by the family values folks to venture such a thing. My only concern is that there are so many allusions to shows like "Lost" and "24" coming from the reviewers. I never watched "Lost" because I got burned by "Twin Peaks". They made it up as they went along, and had no end game. It was a cheat. I hope this show has an overall arc already planned.
I did not watch this closely; I always re-watch later in the week at a more convenient time. But I noticed both of joyeful's points 2 and 3 as I watched, and I totally agree with both of them. The wealth and celebrity of her father should make Alexis much more careful about her behavior. She is putting herself at risk. There are monsters out there, and sickos. Just watch the news any night of the week.
I did notice the absence of Gates, and I basked in it.
And Ryan looked HOT in that suit! He is a gorgeous guy ...
I live in Idaho. What is a Zombie Dog?
This is the first episode of this show that I plan to re-watch immediately when it shows up on CBS.com, rather than waiting for summer reruns. It's built and built over the run of the show, to the point where I think it's now one of my very favorites. I've appreciated the way they have been featuring each family member more this season.
I can't say I was particularly attached to this partner, but I wasn't attached to the last one, either. The villain this week is so very good at bad guys -- been watching him for years. Good job.
I will take any excuse to see Nate. (Although I am no fan of psychiatry, the man is a hunk!) I thought that the funeral home was even more odd than those I deal with all the time in my volunteer work. Over-written, and excellently played. Very funny. Creepy funny.
I did particularly appreciate the ludicrous presentation of Nate as Hetty's son, and the dead fox as nearly her other son. I did not pay much mind to the story; I have seen it done before on another show. Up to and including the PVC tube replacements. I thought this episode was average ...
Not only does Leonard play the cello. So does Johnny Galecki. He took lessons as a child. So, it would not need dubbing. He can play well.
@ SnakeTheCritic The Big Bang Theory has a studio audience, not a laugh track.
I realize that Linda Hunt is a brilliant, talented, and honored actress, but the look of delight on her face when LL Cool J swept her up in his arms and hugged her looked like reality, not acting. It was adorable.
I share the service-related quibbles that others have brought up here. Looking back to the progenitors of this show, those actions would not have occurred on J*A*G. Does this shown lack a military assistant, such as NCIS has and J*A*G had? It is more permissible when they are running around after terrorists, but when they are portraying life on a military vessel, they need to adhere to military protocols, or they will look cheesy. They should know better.
