Vikings Season 3 Episode 10 Review: The Dead

i'm thrilled by rollo's story, because it sems that he is going to be the Duc of a part of the north-west of france , a part of France called today "Normandie", a name directly comming from "Nord Man" (north men). And, actualy, the first duc of Normandie was a viking, who's baptized name was "Robert the First", father of "Guillaume Le conquérant" second Duc of Normandie , who invaded England, defeated the Saxon and was crowned King of England

Actually, he was William the Conqueror's great-great-great-grandfather, not his father. The present-day British Queen also is a direct descendent of Rollo.

My bad, for the "son" of rollo, as for Guillaume le conquérant, well i'm french and i didn't knew that in England they called him William, because in France he is called Guillaume.

His son is also a William, William Longsword. He may have also had Viking name perhaps Rolv like his father. Rollo had a daughter named Gerlaug/ Adelaide

Castle Round Table: What Was Left Unsaid

Still not satisfied with it. But it may stem from the fact that I am still bitter about the wedding not taking place when it was supposed to. Maybe having him kidnapped on the way to their honeymoon would have been better, not the wedding itself. Then Kate could have worn her mothers beautiful dress for the wedding and the rest of the gang could have been there. Also Kate would have been close by if it had happened on the way to their tropical honeymoon.
Still a lot of unanswered questions. Like how did he end up floating in the ocean on a little boat. After they got what they wanted from him, did they just toss him in the ocean to fend for himself for 2 months? He could have died out there. Is that any way to treat a hero who had just saved thousands of lives? So much for that whole thing about wanting Castle because he was famous so they wouldn't kill him. It was just luck he didn't die. Any number of things could have killed him. I also still want to know what happened to him in the woods when he was a boy.
I usually love Esposito but it made me sad he still held resentment and some disbelief toward Castle.

.......you do the same with your comments about Castle`s ep.

@ Andrée

I think Esposito has every right to resent Castle. After all, Esposito is supposed to be an actual cop as opposed to Castle's role as "consultant", yet he is constantly ordered to either do what Castle wants him to do or have Castle act like a 2-yr old until he gets Kate to order Espo to do what Castle wants....even worse, he and Ryan are often called on to "babysit" Castle. It's about time Castle grew up...his "child-like" personality has grown old and annoying! And they want US to believe someone like him could save 10s of thousands of lives???? And from the previews, he's supposed to get to play "hero" yet again in the next episode.

I think you should stop watching Castle if you`re too frustrated or better write scenarrio.

You give this episode a 4.5 rating, really? - It was same old, same old! Howard has a Masters degree in Engineering from MIT but can't fix the simplest things, Leonard was bullied in High School, Penny is a beauty and Leonard is proud of her, Rajesh is the Indian call center agent, Bernadette is annoyed by the geekiness... Yes, we have seen ALL OF THAT before. It was funny ONCE but never funny twice, particularly when one can already smell the joke before it even shows up on the horizon. Best parts was the Sheldon and Howard scenes and how Raj played his parents - Penny and Leonard was boring like beep, like they always are when they're together. Oh and this episode should have come with some Viewer Discretion Advised.
Seeing Leonard in that graduation gown with his ugly bare legs made my stomach turn,
I had to wash my eyes with bleach.

Having Derek die that way, after saving those people, & knowing what was happening to him was genius but, didn't like how Meredith reacted at all. Yes, she's a doctor and has seen it happen a million times but, this was her husband!! Will be interesting to see how it plays out with her for the rest of the season.

@ Deb Hancock

I agree. I am so mad that they killed him off, however the way it was done was so ironic and genius. In addition, I cannot understand how they portrayed meredith's reaction. This was not one of her patients, it was her husband, the love of her life.

We saw Liz's phone being tossed out the window by Dembe and then he gave her the flip phone.
I predict Liz and Tom will be back together by season's end.
I was not surprised Tom Connolly was the mole.

32 TV Characters We Still Can't Believe Have Left Us

Sara Lance..."her death was quickly accepted into the Arrow Fandom...NOT ...there was not one good reason to get rid of Sara except to move the story along...another female actor loses her part all because the show runners needed a plot device. Sara Lance, actor Caity Lotz, was an extremely strong LGTBQ female character and Caity Lotz, a role model, something that does not happen often in tv lately. The younger generations need to see those characters in mainstream tv.

Reign Season 2 Episode 19 Review: Abandoned

Thanks for the review. Sorry for all the Fray fans. In an episode that some of us were hoping to see some redemption of Mary,all we got is more proclaiming of her love and devotion to Conde and her using Francis undying love to protect her lover.There was a brief moment after Francis accused Mary of lying about Condes relationship with Elizabeth, and her only staying by Francis side for political reasons,that Mary started to say that there was more to her staying with Francis, but she stopped her self. Half a dozen times claiming her love of Conde yet not once her love of Francis even after he agreed to once again protect Conde, knowing how much he was hurting. She may appear to be suffering but not enough for me.
I don't believe Bash is romantically involved with the woman in the woods but Gemma will use it to sex up the general.
Was glad to hear Narrices call out Lola on her supporting the Conde and Mary affair.
The one brief high point was watching Mary,Bash and Francis working together to free the orphans. Flash's of season 1and the start of season 2.

Yes, it was another difficult episode for Frary fans. When Mary said she was sorry if Francis thought it was over I wanted to leap into the TV and tear her apart. Oy! And you're right that it was nice to see them working together again. If only there hadn't been the bickering. Bash was like "yikes!" Lol

Criminal Minds Season 10 Episode 21 Review: Mr. Scratch

This was a great episode - scary, thought provoking, brilliantly directed by MGG and topped off by a stellar performance by Thomas Gibson. I can see how those who prefer the more generic, less demanding, run-of-the-mill cops shows didn't like this more creative and interesting episode but for me it was great to have something so different yet still firmly in the Criminal Minds wheelhouse. Gubler's direction was outstanding and he always creates fantastic atmosphere in his episodes. Certainly the best episode of the season by a long way.

@ mary

That's my view as well. I rarely give out five stars for an episode - but this one earned them.

Nobody mentions the "How stupid do you have to be to stop in the middle of a 180 in the middle of the road to check your phone?!" I thought doctors were smart! I guess I was terribly wrong!
I am not pissed or sad. I am distancing myself from the characters, and have been since Lexie died.

I agree, people respond, without bothering to read! ITA, there were many plot holes in this ending of Derek's life. Really, the phone rings after over and over they tell us there is NO phone service! A top surgeon, who just took care of people in a car accident decided to stop his car in the middle of the road to answer the phone, sorry, he would know better. I don't understand how she could just pull the plug without calling Amelia.

Amy is Der's sister, no way would she ever have been allowed to operate on her brother. Mer knew the reality of Der's injuries, she did want to be a nuero surgeon originally
