This is one of my favorite shows in the zombie/vampire/plague apocalypse genre of horror. I binge watched it in one night to catchup to episode 5 and then watched it every Sunday night from that point on.The show has flowed well to this point and I am really looking forward to the next season. I have never read the book, and didn't even know one existed. I am just a fan of the show and I am enjoying to for what it is.I do have to agree...The Master does look kind of goofy....
Here we go again. Arizona and her bullshit. Will she ever stop?
Alex should be suing the shit out of the hospital. The things they do to him. Jeez.
Okay Z Nation you resurrected yourself....pun fully intended.I was starting to give up on the show until this episode. I had some high hopes for this series. This weeks episode was the best one some far. This was what I was waiting for from the series.It was a much better episode from the very start with the voice over from Citizen Z. His character was grating on me over the past few episodes. I liked what they did with him this week.I hope we are staring to see the beginning of a good run of episodes.
I just said the same thing in another comment Frank. This episode is what I was expecting Z Nation to be more like. The writers have not nailed the tone of this thing. It's like they're trying to be too many things to too many people. When you watch Walking Dead, you know the world and how characters react within that world. On Z Nation not so much.
This episode of Scandal was the best of the season. Olitz back in action, Olivia focus, Fitz focus, Smelly Mellie getting read something serious and left with a broke face, Fitz touching Liv and giving her Fitzgasm, great story, OPA in action, Jake looking stupid as usual, NewKaren nice recast, and fast pace. This episode reminded me of old Scandal. BTW, I don't bother reading Miranda recap. Fitz hate, Fitz hate, Fitz hate, Liv hate, Mellie Love, Jake love, repeat the same bias reviews every week. The comments are more interesting than the same ole article.
Since you're supporting Olivia being with Jake, a man who put her in the hospital on their first night together, made a sex tape of her, choked her, killed her god daughter's father, threatened to kill her, and now regularly reminds her that he's not her boyfriend and is just her sexual partner, is it surprising that people think you hate her? Is that what you want for the characters you like?I'm not rooting for Fitz and Olivia to be together at this stage but I am rooting for them both to dump Jake and Mellie because Jake is physically dangerous to Olivia and Mellie actually seems to HATE Fitz, and has for years, LONG before Olivia came along.THAT is a toxic relationship. Mellie blames Fitz for EVERTHING that goes wrong in her life an takes zero responsibility, He tolerates it, then lashes out then she looks wounded and he apologises and then wash, rinse repeat.It's bad for them and the kids and he needs to end it, because at this stage I don't think Mellie can. She's too scared, he's too guilty and so it continues.
If you bothered to read, you'd see I didn't hate Olivia, and I typically don't unless the writers write her to be weak like they did for half of last season. So, you know, go on being uninformed about my views about her.
Not going to waste my time reading. You're not objective at all. The comments and reading different opinions are more interesting the your repeat, wash, rinse weekly essay of Fitz hate.
I acknowledge that I've been disappointed with the writing for Olivia, and I've hated how "weak" she seems to have been written, but I read something that reminded me that at her core, Olivia is just a human being, a normal woman, with normal desires. We the viewers are the ones who have imbued her with all these superhuman traits, and are then disappointed when she doesn't live up to them. The fact is, Olivia feeling overwhelmed is a very human thing. Olivia making bad decisions is human. Olivia not being strong 24/7 is no different to the rest of us. She was never anything other than a woman who was great at her job, we were the ones who put her on a pedestal, and were shocked to find that she had feet of clay just like the rest of us. The truth of the matter is, Olivia's heroism lies in her ability to get past the stuff that she's been through, without ever totally giving in to despair. She was abandoned at the age of 12 after she thought her mother had died. Her father is a monster who sent one of his minions in to sleep with her, in order to get between her and the president. Her mother tried killing both the man she loves and her father. As far as she's aware, her mother murdered the son of the man she loves. She's been through so much, yet people just want to label her as "weak", even though the reality is, she's stronger than both Mellie and Fitz, who tried to end their lives when things got too much for them. Yet Mellie is the one people insist on labeling as "strong".
I definitely appreciate this response, particularly regarding Olivia being written as human instead of weak. Thanks for this.
I definitely, completely agree that Fitz and Mellie's marriage is toxic. The best thing for those two is divorce. I strongly believed that they loved each other at one time and that their marriage wasn't just one arranged for political aspirations as we've been led to believe. I do believe they loved each other. But too much has transpired between them for their relationship to recover. It's time to cut the cords and set each other free.
I have more sympathy for Mellie. Mellie is a victim of rape. Fitz's father raped her and that poisoned their marriage which appeared to be a good one. After the rape she pulled away from Fitz. It was not until recently that Fitz learned of what happened. He had accused her of being distant and pulling away and now he knew the reason why she did it. That elicited sympathy on his part, but I agree by then it is probably too late for the marriage to be saved. But I do not think cutting the cords and setting each other free will be that easy.
I don't think going their separate ways will be easy, but I think it's necessary at this point. I've long held sympathy for Mellie because Fitz' father did ruin her and poison her marriage. I can't fault her for not telling Fitz what happened because I've never been in the situation where that's happened. I go back and forth with wishing she'd told him sooner and knowing we wouldn't have the drama we have had she done so.
I don't believe Fitz and Mellie EVER loved each other. It's not in the text and it's not in their actions. Mellie has said REPEATEDLY that they never did and so has Fitz. And they have said so to each other, when alone, not for the benefit of an audience. What they DID once have was friendship and after a divorce they could have that again. But those two were never in love.
I think Melie and Fitz relationship is MORE toxic than Olivia and Fitz could ever be. At least they love each other and they can work together and get along. Mellie and Fitz can't stand to be in the same room together half of the time. Can you imagine living with someone you despise for so many years? I didn't like how Mellie mock Fitz's suicide attempt when she herself attempted it years before. She's a cruel woman that Mellie and a cold fish. This is season 4 Scandal and it two years over due for Fitz to divorce Mellie. Olivia came up with a plan at the end of season 2 where Fitz would establish Mellie's political career and support her and file for divorce. That plan need to resurface again this season. When they reunite again for a night and then break up maybe for Sweeps period...because anyone who has watched Scandal for 4 seasons know they won't be separated for too long. I don't want any relationship between Fitz and Liv either. Not until she is officially done with Jake and also not until the divorce talk returns.
Pretty excellent, but so bummed about Charlie!
Right? Roberta is now the leader. Hope she's around longer or the mission is a total bust.
A little far fetched that the hit man would have a change of heart because of his new heart. It was upsetting seeing Danny kill that awful man.
The problem with modern cinematic TV shows is they truly feel like generously edited films at the expense of a longer storyline and regular season timing. The word "season" has become meaningless - let's not kid ourselves, showrunners present what's actually a film that's stretched out from 1.5 to 8 hours, including credits. As such they're able to make it palatable for film quality actors/directors/screenwriters to get on-board, if they're not already a part of the initial show idea. Netflix doesn't even insult your intelligence by making you wait weekly for the next episode. So you can actually watch something like True Detective in a few sittings, just skipping over the "previously on" and intro/outro credits.
whats hapend with April & Jackson these season?
Even after Dean is cured, there is no walking back those comment. There will be no reconciliation between him and Sam. Never, ever. Not after this. And Dean can't use the "it wasn't really me talking" excuse. What he said was 100% Dean. Now we finally find out that Deans "i'm proud of us" words at the end of last season were nothing but crap. A lie. Now we find finally out that Deans crocodile tears when Sam was hurt or killed in the last nine seasons were nothing but a sham. After nine seasons, we finally find out the truth. Dean hates and loathes Sam and his father. Always did and always will. He has hated Sam since the day he was born. Sam never wanted to be a hunter, but Dean dragged him into it. And now, of course, the jerk blames Sam for everything. I will continue watching SPN because it's a fantastic show. But from now on I will hate Dean Winchester. Rot in hell, Dean Winchester. Rot in hell.
