The Strain Review: Terror at Treblinka

I am loving the show and your reviews. Only minor gripe is usually the reviews keep the tv reviews "pure" but it seems each week you talk about both the book and the show. I think I like thehcolor the books provide but don't want things inadvertently spoiled. example - his mom.
better - people will understand re family. One flat out tells the future, the other says pay attention, this will be important! They used to have split reviews, I think for GoT, where the tv one focused only with the show, & a separate review and commentary talk about both the book and the show so we could explore that. Why not take up that format here? I think it could be exciting, and as a matter of fact those reviews are what got me to absolutely have to read books! Hope you'll consider it :)

Extant Review: Algorithm Danny 5

I have one observation that differs from your account. Sam looked like she had to gird herself for the conversation, hesitated about listening, and seemed upset when they left, but all with a guilty vibe, not just pure concern. If my family were threatened, my nonexistent poker face would be switched with Emmy - worthy performances, without a doubt. She probably thinks, after realizing how dangerous ISEA really is that letting Molly think she was going crazy was her best chance of survival. I love this show, but tend to forget about it bc I rarely watch CBS. But between DVR and on demand, I haven't missed a one. I hope we get to keep it!

That's a really, really good point. I think he could potentially forgive her, but it would be tough. But he still kind of knows that now anyhow, or at least will figure it out, soon. I was so hoping she would have been the new baddie. I really, really am tired of Regina not getting a break! But, then again, she has a lot of karma to make up for :(

Good point about Peter Pan, but Elsa is such a new character that if they did put it on its head like they did with Pan, I feel fans would find that uncomfortable/awkward. We JUST met her and have a fondness for her. Pan we have always known but it's not a "fresh" attachment. I dunno. Weird!

I was in downright AWE of this finale. They wrapped up and circled back to SO many things, I couldn't believe it. Literally every word uttered at some point had consequences later (it's all about the tumblers). My heart soared when they named the baby Neal. I shouted FINALLY at the Captain Swan kiss
I shouted NOOOO! at Marian (my husband figured that one out, right before the reveal, he paused it and said "it's Robon Hood's wife" - I was surprised by it). DAMMIT why can't Regina catch a break! I understand her blaming Emma, and I REALLY wish Emma showed more remorse - could have short circuited Regina's anger. Instead of "not my fault, sorry!", a little empathy for what Regina would be facing. I hope that somehow Robin Hood still chooses Regina after some time, but for her it's the next day - for him it's how many years now, 30+ (Emma was 28 at season 1)? That alone should make it weird now. I too thought I'd be a little bored at the rehash of Snow and Charming, but I like how they did it - some subtle changes made it fun to watch for what was different but still had the same end result. I'm not a fan of Elsa as the next baddie. I too didn't consider her a villain in Frozen (just saw it this weekend) so it actually was a disappointment to me. MAYBE it's someone else, but I doubt it. They made it pretty identical to the movie (the footsteps, etc.). *sigh* But, the writers don't usually disappoint, so hopefully they put a good twist on it.

I won't watch anything on NBC anymore for this reason. I watched half of an episode of Believe but decided to wait and see if it was picked up. NBC is so damn fickle that no one wants to invest their hearts in their shows! Awake was the last straw for us after Flash Forward.

Grey's Anatomy Review: What's the Point?

I am hoping she just leaves to work for him and nothing more. I don't see her making an impulsive emotional decision about him, but career-wise, she has already decided to leave gsmh, so this would be a natural fit.

Very keen observation!

Resurrection Review: It's Just Beginning

Same boat here. Wth? Carissa, will you do reviews if thettraffic or comments pick up?
I think most of us are on the same page. I don't need ANSWERS, but I WOULD like something to contemplate!

Amber and Ryan made love at the hospital. It was a subtle cutaway. I hope she was gentle! !
