I think that without Derek and Christina the show has run it's course. Time to say good bye to Grey's and Shonda as far as I am concerned.

Chicago PD Season 2 Episode 24 Review: Born Into Bad News

I like how Vioght is a bad ass cop. The show would be boring if he wasn't. I feel bad for Erin, but for some reason, I would rather see Platt's reprecussions to Nadia's death. She is a character that needs more screen time. And yay for burgess and Ruzek!! I love them as a couple; they are so much better than Linstead. And Poor Antonio! He hasn't gotten a decent storyline since season 1.....hope he cuts his hair soon. Lol

Agree with you; Voight is best as a badass cop. His lack of hesitation in going as far as it takes to do the necessary is what makes me keep coming back for more. I wouldnt want to watch a show where all he wants to do is tow the line. And oh yeah poor Antonio needs attention too. After Halstead he's my second favorite!

Once Upon a Time Season 4 Report Card: Grade It!

Hopes for Once Upon a Time Season 5 - S5 to be the last season. I think the sorcerer fighting the greatest darkness is setting up for a series finale and I am perfectly fine with that. - A Hook and Emma TLK.
I need some validation that the Snow and Charming parallels and Hans Solo/ Princess Leia allusions are not just red herrings. Also, it has become cliche that everybody but the Prince (or Pirate) gets to break the curse with an act of true love. There is a very specific meaning to TLK and the fact that it is the Prince who bestows it--I'd like to get back to that. - I have seen a lot of different suggestions regarding who should have a central role in helping Emma. What if each character got a centric episode with a related fairyback that also explained their part in helping to save Emma/ find Merlin? - Better plots and characterization for Belle, Robin Hood, Henry, Snow, and Charming. - Charming to stop being emasculated by Snow.
There are 4 adult male "leads" - 2 of them act like whimps, 3 are defined almost solely by their love interest, and the best father of the bunch is always being dragged down by his wife. Do the writers think that just because the show caters more to a female audience that it is appealing to said audience to write male characters so weak? I personally find it to be one of the most irritating aspects of the show. - More of the relationship between Emma and her parents. - More Hook backstory. Davy Jones as Killian's father. A pirate arc would be cool. This point may undermine my first point though as I know there is plenty of material Once could cover that could keep the series running indefinitely. - Answers to all the Will Scarlet questions. - No Mulan! She was my absolute favorite Disney princess as a kid and Once ruined her. - No old characters returning.
I really wish people would get over Ruby, Mulan (please God, no Mulan), Aurora and Philip, Archie, Graham, Peter Pan, Whale, Nealfire, Walsh, etc. At some point they are just outdated--shed to move the show in a new and better direction. But, don't get me wrong, I liked all of those characters (except Mulan, Aurora, Philip, & Pan) in their time--I just don't see them fitting into the story anymore. In conclusion, I think this S4 was the best season yet, even though I found the Frozen fairybacks and the Snow Qween plot boring and annoying, respectively. Going back to my last hope for S5, it seems I'm in the minority in that I don't really like S1. Almost everything that happened under the curse is irrelevant and most of the fairybacks are too as most have been retconned or were one-offs. Once the curse lifted there was no going back. Season 4 Grade: A-

As much as I hate to admit it, I agree with you that S5 be the last. Yes there could be more stories to tell but this last season really didn't do the series any favors, the cold hard truth is that the ratings have gone down considerably and I don't feel that the stories are being thought through as they were is seasons past. Now it seems to be about getting the big names and that carrying them through but after frozen it is clear that doesn't work either. The ultimate twist is Emma being the dark one and unless they are planning more than one season with her that way and more,challenge for CS then that is enough. I know I wouldn't watch beyond this next season if Emma is still the dark ine. Even beyond the end of 5a will be questionable, if Emma the dark one continues in last that.

Great episode! Although killing Death may cause all types of complications for humanity as a whole, it was a WTF moment. The exl\plenation of what the Mark really is was really good, we can only hope that The Darkness won't be the next Leviathans. Also I'd like to give a shout-out to Supernatural team for getting some Polish lady to say the line in Polish. Too often it's done with terrible accent, making it laughable

I don't believe that I watched anything on NBC this season. Nothing whatsoever.

Once Upon a Time Season 4 Report Card: Grade It!

Best Episode 4A - Fall ................ A Tale of Two Sisters, Breaking Glass, White Out
4B - Operation Mongoose ................ Lily, Heart of Gold, Darkness on The Edge of Town Worst Episode 4A - Family Business ................ I didn't really like Shattered Sight, but it wasn't the worst.
4B - Enter the Dragon Best Villain - Isaac, because the writers and actor gave me a reason to root against him. The most satisfying villain comeuppance was when Emma punched Isaac in the face. After Isaac, I'd say Zelena because her wickedness is visceral. (This coming from someone who's least favorite arc was S3B.) I don't understand how anybody became attached to any of the Queens of Darkness--none of them were developed enough for me to get emotionally invested. Ingrid just annoyed me--even her final sacrifice was annoying. Most Disappointing Recurring Character - Robin Hood's Code of Honor is not actually honorable. Robin is so poorly written and I wish he wasn't because he is such a cool addition. Maleficent was boring; Enter the Dragon was the worst episode of S4, even surpassing Family Business. Belle is so poorly and inconsistently written--she always has been and, unfortunately, probably, always will be if they don't connect her with anybody else in Storybrooke aside from Rumple. Most Disappointing New Character - The Chernabog: I really wish it would have come back into play instead of ending up on the long list of dropped story lines. Will wasn't even there enough for me to be disappointed. I liked his cameos in Rocky Road, Smash the Mirror, and Heart of Gold. The poor guy was a punching bag for Hook, a babysitter for Roland, or a boy toy for Belle the rest of the time, though. :'( Most Shocking Twist - I look at spoilers b/c I'm OCD like that ;) (I don't like surprises.) Some shocking things were: Cruella De Vil's story, HE, and demise; Belle kicking Rumple to the curb; The Apprentice's death; Zelena/ Robin Hood child; etc. Worst Twist - I don't want the Apprentice to be gone. The more I think about it, the more I like (and maybe "like" isn't the right word) the Zelena/ Hood baby because there is so much character building and thematic potential so long as it's handled properly from here on out. Best New Trend - Emma bringing down her walls/ the redemption of Hook and Regina (and I'd never thought I'd say that with regards to Regina). Best Kiss - I think the Snow and Charming one at the end of Shattered Sight was memorable in that it capped off the "everything is alright in the world" mood of the scene. I really like how often chaste Emma and Hook's relationship is--highlighted is why they love each other (because they trust, genuinely like, sacrifice for each other, & etc.) over any physical aspect. I like the moment between Emma and Hook at the end of Breaking Glass--the affection felt very natural. Best Advice - The Apprentice to Henry Op Mongoose Part 2:
"The truth is what you must write. I hope that you can resist the temptation of the quill. The power to change reality is only outweighed by the cost."
It speaks to the power and potential danger of the expression of ideas. The truth will always win in the end, but that doesn't give us permission to spread deceptions.

Has anybody here ever seen Tales from the Crypt's Demon Knight ? the whole thing involving the darkness totally reminded me of a scene from that movie when Brayker describes what is going on as follows "In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth..And the Earth was a formless void, and darkness covered the face of the deep. But the darkness wasn't empty. It was full of creatures, full of demons. And they had seven keys, formed into a circle that focused the power of the cosmos into their hands, until God stepped forth and said, "let there be light." And there was light." Aside from the Seven Keys, I think the show should really finally introduce God for season 11....I just think God would ultimately have to be the one to come back and bring the light to contend with the darkness.It seems like its a task that will finally be above the Winchesters alone. man I couldn't help but wish that during the conversation between Dean and death, death was going to say something like Lucifer is the key to the mark being removed and he would have to be removed from that stupid cage he's been locked up in since the season 4 finale....I mean really,why is Lucifer still locked in that stupid cage? I'm all for him getting out of that crap already. Oh and Death was and always is a scene stealer!!.I absolutely refuse to believe that he is dead,I mean really how can you kill death ? I will riot if they just killed off my favorite character lol.

I will really hate it if they make Metatron end up having the solution to combat the darkness because he has the demon tablet..I'm almost certain that they will play into the fact that he knew ahead of time that if the Mark of Cain was removed it would release this darkness and the answer lies within that stupid tablet that he possesses and next season will feature more of that slimy bastard.

I hope Chuck/God will be back, as well as Lucifer, Gabriel, Michael/Adam.. they are the ones that beat back the Darkness in the first place. The other Archangel, Raphael is dead (or is he?), but I bet there is something in the demon tablet that Metatron has about this. This may be another big bad that will have everyone battling together against it (Sam, Dean, Cas and Crowley). I think it also sets it up for some serious help from heaven.. ie, Bobby, Charlie, Kevin, maybe even John and Mary.. and what of the death of Death? That definitely can't be good..lol.. Season 11, bring it on...
