@ Daron About what, specifically?
I'm definitely in the minority here, but I found the episode both boring and offensive. If someone was prying into my past private life like that, I would stop them. I do not believe that it is necessary for her job as a drug tester to know everything about him, and the intrusion is upsetting and (to me) obscene. Since I don't like the actors, particularly, and the stories are not all that fascinating, and I am not an admirer of Aiden Quinn either, I guess that's it for this one. I was evaluating; I am done. You all enjoy it. I shall be reading a book. Maybe one by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
I don't think Walden lied. He just did not correct her erroneous assumptions about him. It had to be very nice for the character to be wanted for something besides his money. It was nice to see it, anyway.
***our*** first openly gay
I don't think they thought this one through very well. I also wanted it to be a success; I'm a big fan of David Krumholtz. But I did not make it past the first 18 minutes of the first episode. I was cringing so much my back was starting to hurt. Time has moved on past the Stepin Fetchit stereotype of the lazy shiftless black man, and time has moved on past the stereotypical comical gay who is just too precious to be believed. Four states just voted to allow or not forbid gay marriage. We just elected out first openly gay US Senator. Gay characters are now becoming a normal part of television, just as gays are a normal part of American life. The time has passed for this kind of farce. The network should never have put it on, and it should have been cancelled even faster than it was.
If Kensi and Deeks get together, neither would have to leave the boathouse gang, as you put it. NCIS has no rule against interdepartmental relationships or marriages. It was carefully explained on one of the earlier NCIS seasonal DVD's. The real NCIS has married couples. The rule about no relationships on the team is Gibbs's rule. Gibbs is not on this show. I am in favor of Kensi and Deeks getting together, and against Tony and Ziva being a couple.
Practically the whole squad and Castle made idiots of themselves. This is something I could have entirely done without. I've seen it done before. They even did it on the Mentalist a few years back. This is my favorite show, but this was a throwaway episode.
I have been very consistent in my disdain for the captain. Of late, they have been playing her as an idiot, often as not, and that is not where she started. Tonight she was a very annoying sycophant to the film crew. This show already has a clown; Castle plays that role. It does not need two. Given a choice of having her be a stone cold bitch, as she started, or this inconsistent brown-noser, I will take the bitch. Actually, I would prefer a different captain, one who does not want to be an imitation man.
I cringed a lot watching this episode; I will rewatch it this week when it is posted on ABC.com, and see if I still do. One thing which struck me is that I could absolutely not tell the difference between one skinny, scruffy, dirty-looking, unshaven brunette musician and another, or the roadies, or the guy who turned out to be the mentor/friend. So, I never knew exactly who was in the scene. Seems to me they could change it up a bit, get some blondes, skinheads, gingers ... Practically the whole squad and Castle made idiots of themselves. This is something I could have entirely done without. I've seen it done before. They even did it on the Mentalist a few years back. This is my favorite show, but this was a throwaway episode.
@ Fatin Deb has always been whiny and tiresome, in my opinion. It is nothing new.
