I have the opposite reaction from Hege's. I noticed last week that of the shows which I watched last year, the ones I was the happiest to see again were Scorpion and Criminal Minds. This one was like getting back together with old friends I had not realized that I had been missing. I was particularly pleased tonight to see Tim Kang -- he was my favorite actor on The Mentalist, and I think that you are right. He blew away any need for pigeonholing him in emotionless typecasted parts. He really was terrific. (I never thought Cho was emotionless. You just had to watch him closely to see the slight signs of what he was thinking, behind that mask. Fascinating, in the way Leonard Nimoy's Spock fascinated us when I was a girl.) It was nice to see him again so soon.
Someplace or other, I believe that I read that Mark Harmon had a knee replacement during the off season, and lost weight for it.
I am the same age as Jerry Mathers. I was there. Kids in my town were precisely like that back then. My mother was like Mrs. Cleaver until she went back to college. Then, she did both. Many of my classmates had parents like the Cleavers, and I also knew an Eddie Haskell clone. Unless you lived in a farming community in Illinois as a child in the mid-50's, do not tell me I don't know how that was, how kids were. I have an autistic nephew. I find the change in Ralph over the summer to be not believable. Guess what? I am entitled to my opinion, too.
I appreciated Ralph's solution to his bullying problem, but I did not appreciate the attitude he had when he spoke to the group, or the look of bored contempt on his face when he demonstrated the voice device for his mother. That is not supposed to be who Ralph is -- another smartass kid like I have been seeing on TV for the last 45 years. (Before that, the kids tended to be more like kids. See the original Leave It to Beaver, for instance.) I watched it four times. The child is a good actor. But the character is going in a direction I do not like, if this goes on. I liked Cabe's takedown of the Director. She deserved it. Someone mentioned in a comment on an earlier episode this year that the actress is not long for this series, so I am wondering whether this situation ties in to whatever reason they give for replacing her?
You sound like a seventh grader. This board is not here for slavish worship. It is here for honest discussion and critical review. Sheldon's character is devolving in some ways, and that is not progress. If no one points out that there are problems, the problems will never be fixed.
Castle has always been submissive to the women in his life. His mother, his daughter, and all of his wives. I doubt he is going to "grow a pair" now.
I agree with everything you said, except that I will still be watching it eight days later. (No TV in the house.) But I watched the season opener today, and I was grievously disappointed. It was no improvement on the already subpar previous season. I will be watching it SOLELY because I will happily watch Nathan Fillion do anything, anything at all. Same with Susan Sullivan. Ryan, Espo, and Lanie are good. The rest of them, no.
Alexis's mother, and then his book agent. Then Beckett.
Have you ever heard this cliche? "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."
