I don't eat turkey for Thanksgiving. I splurge at the local steakhouse and get prime rib!
This is great news! So far, each season has that unique Coen Brothers whimsical mark on it. I have no doubt the third will as well.
I can't help but wonder what Stuart was doing for the holiday. He lives in Howard and Bernadette's house and has no family or other friends. I liked it when he was less creepy and mildly less nerdy than the guys.
"This show continues to be a shark-jumping, fridge-nuking train-wreck. The central idea is moronic, the writing, particularly the early episodes have been amateurish, the plots convoluted, the drama forced and contrived." I've been saying this in some variation since the conclusion of 08x03 PhDead, which is when I gave up on Season 8, but I remain on the sidelines, waiting, apparently in vain, for signs that Hawley and Winters have figured out which show they're writing for. Sadly, this review continues to confirm my fears about this show. While it does appear that the writing has improved over the past few episodes, the fundamental and critical flaws remain untouched which means it is a waste of my time to watch, which is sad because this was truly my favorite show on television, one of the few I actually watch. No matter how good the specific writing gets, the unaddressed elephant in the room renders any humor, any joy meaningless and completely unbelievable. If my wife left me for ZERO reason, but also didn't ask for a divorce and just basically said, let's take a break, it would affect EVERY aspect of my life. No sane or reasonable person would be able to move on, or enjoy life while this remained unresolved/unaddressed. It is ludicrous and quite frankly insultingly stupid of Hawley and Winters to expect viewers to find this entertaining and that they continue to justify this ill-conceived and even more clumsily executed story contrivance as being good for their marriage demonstrates a laughably inadequate understanding of what makes for a good marriage.. clue for H&W.. trust and honesty are the foundation of any marriage.. both of which have been left in tatters for Mr. and Mrs. Castle. This 'story' remains unwatchable until this is addressed and fixed, and I will not reward H&W, or ABC with my valued viewing time unless this is fixed. Sadly, the characters are now so damaged and unlikable this season, I honestly don't know if it is possible for them to fix it. Kate is a selfish, lying and possibly psychotic jack-ass, and Rick is a whipped, pathetic immature buffoon who's lost his courage, intellect, charm and wit. I just find myself repeating over and over...All the King's horses and all the King's men simply could not put Castle back together again.
My hopes of "happily ever after" are gone gone gone.I am glad that he will finally be the Rick Castle of old and ask the tough questions,anger is what is needed.He has told her in the past he was done maybe again he will.I think any resolution for them as a couple needs to start at Dr.Burke's office,Kate is going to need him big time.Martha's advise makes no sense in s8,normally she is spot on.I wanted Rick and Kate to be together but the powers that be do not.Shame on Mr.Lee and his henchmen H& W for taking a show I loved with a passion and making it the worse thing on tv this year.I do not feel great saying this,but I have had enough.Maybe if Dr.Burke has any free time he can take me on as a patient too.So bring it on everyone........
I'm glad Glenn is alive and all that. But I'm more concerned for Daryl's crossbow. Ha!
True. That crossbow has become as much of a character in the show as Daryl & Co. Do you think that, if Daryl finds the two who took it, he'll allow them to leave? Or maybe just beat them up a little?
Knowing Daryl, he'd probably allow them to leave. But I kinda think he'll find them dead. (See last week's comments).
Thank you - I was thinking the same thing - about the crossbow!!

I've watched days since college, lived thru the stupid story lines like marlena possessed. But, killing off BO ( and the peter actor who's the best), I'm done. I get another hour in my day to watch something else. bad move writers
I absolutely don't believe the affair confession. Something bigger and more dangerous is out there and he didn't "confess" to the affair until Ellie said it was her 1st thought but discarded it. He said it's an affair because he was ordered to by Taylor. At no time during those moments at the lunch did Jake or Taylor look even remotely romantic. At no time in the cab (in Dubai) did they look romantic - Jake looking out the window and the briefcase on the seat between him and Taylor. His "you know me, Gibbs" screamed out "I HAD TO LIE!".Something's afoot and it's not marital infidelity.
It was a great episode. I take mostly Booth's side on leaks like that but I also get Brennan's side and I like the fact they discussed it without getting too angry with each other and they moved on. I would hope that Hodgins destroyed it. The early years of him being paranoid were fun but I think he has grown up a bit and he would think of others besides himself in this instance. I like the new Parker and its ok they re casted him( the previous one I don't believe acts anymore). It was very nice that Brennan did that for Booth. The only thing I didn't like is that Booth could have acted a little more grateful but I guess they didn't get enough time in that scene to show that. I absolutely adored their car scene talking about Christmas. Since we never get those episodes anymore it was fun to imagine the Christmas times they do have. And of course the last scene was very nice and yes it should have been longer but it is what it is. A good episode all the way around
Paterson Joseph's return was brilliant.
