Agreed on the Castle declaration. I loved it. And yeah, Cami is entirely pointless and I am ready to pay the writers myself to get her out of my face.

I knew this show would be wonderful because, based on previous performances, all the actors were first rate. The dialog was tailored beautifully for each individual. So sorry CBS didn't give it a fair try. I'm guessing the Sunday evening crowd who preferred strong women characters just didn't warm up to this quirky buddy show. I will be sad to see it go but I do think the ending of the last episode can also serve a a series finale.

I know U aimed that all categories have a different show, but no way that Jane's baby getting kidnapped was better than The Flash and OUAT cliffhanger. ^^

Beauty and the Beast Season 2: Behind the Scenes

I just love this show, the triangles the writers threw in there were sooo bad for fans and Uncharacteristic for the characters on show. But, I've seen other shows and it's the same with every show. Wishy washy triangles EVERYWHERE on TV shows. I hate them and it just doesn't work that way

Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 7 Review: The Gift

"Daenerys has lost her most trusted advisors and Daario has led her to make poor choices in the past. Does he really expect her to slaughter all the masters the day of the game? I'm sure Dany will quickly realize Tyrion is wise and will begin to heed his advice."
I hope that this is true. I am confused by Dany's continuing tendency to follow BAD advice. She doesn't seem to be learning from her mistakes at all. I hope she will listen to Tyrion regarding the differences between of ruling, and ruling well.

Stupid. First the Lori story is so over the top and unrealistic, no way would a crazy lady get to still communicate with her kidnap victim and cause trouble. Second Carter and Max why did they do that, no need for it and only further proves the point that your lead character is really not likable and that is a problem. The writers can fix it but they seem bent on destroying their own show.

Thanks for the reply. The ratings are tanking badly. The show has lost half its audience according to the EW board from the season premiere. Its simple, what they are showing is not working so they need to fix the problem. I think the problem is Lori makes me not like Carter and I must not be the only one, I'm sorry need to move forward instead of continually backwards.

Kappa, I agree that sleeping with Carter doesn't make her any more likable, but it does make her a teenager. She's in the moment, extremely emotional, and not thinking about the consequences of her actions. Lori's manipulation of her is partly explained by Stockholm Syndrome, she was the only mother Carter knew for most of her life. Elizabeth and Taylor's discussion is another indicator that in the real world, where creating drama is not the main objective, everyone would be in therapy. Intensive therapy. As much as the audience might want these characters to love and respect each other at all times, and forget Lori, and live happily ever after, that would make for boring TV, and quite frankly is just as unrealistic. Besides, you have to confront your past in order to move forward.

I do not disagree that there are several things that would never happen in the real world, but you can say that of any show. Television always asks us to suspend a certain level of disbelief, whether it's that Carter would be in contact with her kidnapper (not the least believable thing on this show, imho) or that Beckett can afford so many coats and that great apartment with civil servant pay on Castle.
The most unrealistic thing about Lori's story is that she would have made it through screening to be a donor in the first place. Unless the Wilsons have a restraining order (probably not since they've taken no action in other areas) there's nothing to stop Lori from making calls or sending letters. Despite the cell like appearance of the room we saw her in, she's not in prison but in a hospital.
I actually do think it's in character for Max and Carter to hook up. As I said, they have a past together, and when people are hurting, they often turn to the familiar for comfort -- Mac has been there for Carter, and they used to date so it makes some sense. I dot think it makes her inherently unlike able since she recognizes that she screwed up. It wasn't premeditated and malicious, it was a mistake.

But it is unbelievable to go beyond "well its a TV show" because Carter knows that her new found sister is in fact in love with Max she even says it after the fact and in that moment she only cared about herself first again. Carter hooked up Max and Taylor originally knowing they would be great together so she knew and did not care. Max as well is to blame on that front of hurting Taylor but his is less because Taylor did break it off with him because she was struggling with her emotions. If I was a betting person I am sure Max comes clean way before Carter ever would, again selfishness on her part. Why yes it was a mistake but one that should never happen and Carter is the reason it happened. Carter is unlikable but its not do to her own fruition, she is unlikable because as she gets manipulated by Lori so she makes dumb decisions which are centered on her needs first. The writers seem to keep trying to make us want Lori to continue on the show that they even tried using Liz and Taylor in this episode by having them say to each other they have to love Carter unconditionally even though Lori will be apart of it. They are using Madison in a similar fashion. But no one wants Lori on the show anymore as it always drags the show down using the past, how about moving forward with Lori and actually showing Carter at her best so she does not come across as unlikable.

*move forward without Lori and showing Carter at her best moving forward so she does not come across as unlikable.

It is sad that a situation can escalate to this but its known that on some sets, some stars don't get along at all, others resent new acts and always bully them, there is mild racism and sexism and years later they come out and confess how it was horrible. They do it for the job. Also some of us at work we sit with people we cannot stand but have to suck it up and work.

Supernatural Round Table: Into Darkness

I will say one thing that I am happy that the writers set up for next season, they ended the season with so many problems that Sam and Dean will have to deal with in Season 11 that there should really be little to no filler or monster of the week episodes. You've got obviously the main big bad which will be the darkness (even though I feel like the writers pulled that idea out of their ass randomly for the finale, I do think it's a cool big bad and finally something that could rival the apocalypse in terms of grand scheme, I just really hope they execute it properly and not pull a Leviathans), you have the consequences of killing Death and the reprecussions it will bring to reapers and anyone that dies, you have Rowena having the power of the Book of the Damned at her disposal, and you still have Metatron out there with the Demon Tablet, not to mention I'm sure if Castiel goes back to heaven, the consequences he will have to deal with for breaking Metatron out. So with all of these issues on their hands, I don't know how Sam and Dean could say "hey we've got nothing to do this week, lets go check out these strange deaths in Nebraska". As I said before though, its all about the execution next season, the writers have to stop being scared of taking ideas all the way because they are afraid of scaring or pissing off certain fans (aka Demon Dean, the Leviathans, etc.). I really hope that the Darkness has turned the world into a Silent Hill-esque environment, I hope that maybe Rowena has turned Castiel into her pet that she can sick on anyone she wants removed (that would certainly be something different and refreshing).
