The ending of Bo Brady and Peter Reckells time on Days of our lives should mean emmys for everyone involved. Powerhouse acting and only half way through the episode on my DVR
.....in SO many ways, just an absolutely PERFECT almost-hour of television; for me, not a SINGLE bad note was sounded (INCLUDING the intercom exchange; it was indicative of how urgent was the need, WHATEVER his primary motivation, for Walter to say what he did, that people know how VERY strong were his feelings about Megan and her fate - DESPITE appearances to the contrary.....). As for their mother not having much of a voice at any time, from the outset Sean was established as a domineering Irish husband (although that ISN'T to say there's been ANY shortage of strong Hibernian females throughout history, either) to more dramatically explain a conflict between he and Walter, exactly why Cabe stepped in as his guardian. And, the science was COMPLETELY sound concerning the product of Sly's hand cleaning habit; with such an INCREDIBLY reactive, MOTILE fungus, the adaptive bacteria he produced from it very well COULD have that effect (although YES, a FARFETCHED scenario in both aspects, nevertheless NOT completely impossible.....there have been a NUMBER of real-life incidents reported where microorganisms underwent comparatively RAPID pleomorphic changes rising to the level of evolution - particularly from exposure due to specific resonant EM spectrum values, and it would've been interesting if the writers had introduced CYMATICS once more to neutralize the threat - see previous installment where sound was used in 'Tech, Drugs And Rock & Roll' while attempting to snuff out the building fire.....)

Her doing this to herself opens up a ton of possibilities.............one being --- DID SHE REALLY do this to herself? Or is whoever is behind daylight one step ahead and making sure they are not revealed? I didn't particularly care for the kiss either, but, now that Jane thinks she did this to herself she will most likely take a step back. I don't know where the writer is getting that it's 4 months until February.......this is practically the end of November. So, February is 3 months away. I think Tasha will rethink her decision after she finds out Clark is dead.........and in true drama fashion--get to the letter just in time............
Yes, just 3 months away. but even that is too long. What is NBC putting on it's place, do you know?
Most likely holiday specials............and yes, 3 months is too long............
You could tell last weeks Thanksgiving and this weeks episodes were out of order, especially with the James and Lucy story. But I can understand why they did it. I agree with you about Hank. I think he is going to be a big villain at some point.

He is Cyborg Superman
I hope hank is just the John the Martian
That would be cooll but Cyborg has 1 red eye
Thank you for the review, still not watching though, until Bobby Ewing steps out the shower, or Nikki and Paulo are buried alive - in other words until the writers and show runners just make this storyline GO AWAY, before the show goes away.
I really felt for Simone. In that one episode where her dad slams the truck doors on her legs and is happy about it tells you how she had no chance in this world. But to be killed by Bear in retribution for his son was too much.
I heard it that way.
Spot on -- she had no chance being born a Gerhardt and being born to Dodd. Absolutely tragic scene for a tragic character. I got chills when that rendition of "Danny Boy" started playing as Bear left the woods and drove back home, with the montage of all of the Gerhardts (living and dead) playing on the split-screen. Really incredible.
Does anyone know the lines where Mike responds to Lou about ownership and Mike responds, "like people"? I thought it was a clever line regarding race/slavery, but I wasn't sure if I heard it correctly.
Good review. I enjoyed the show. The chemistry between Katic and Fillion when they are really together on screen (no doubles, phone calls or skype) is still very much there. There is a drop off in the chemistry when they pull those parallel investigation tricks to make it appear as if Katic and Fillion are working together. The quick cuts are in those phone scenes to make you forget that the other one isn't actually present. Doesn't work so well anymore. They continue to be a hot couple professionally. Junior high or just tired or ... ? Writer had to be going crazy when trying to hit all the points that were driving fans away and tell any kind of a story. Hard work to do an adequate job. A gentleman's C. Have they stopped the bleeding? Sort of. Will fans come back after the Winter hiatus? Probably. A January 4 date will bring back more than a return on February 1. Will they stick with the show through the rest of the season? Very thin ice. There is no room for a poor episode - light on Caskett. Very poor season. I haven't re-watched more than 2 episodes. For a guy who has bought everything they put out I have no interest in buying the DVD's at this point. As showrunners these guys are terrible. They've pretty much destroyed the show. The person who gave them the job isn't looking that swell either. I was entertained for the duration of the episode, but still have a bad taste in my mouth over this poor season.
Jim, I agree with you about the DVDs. I own all seven seasons of Castle but at this point I see no reason to buy season 8. Hopefully they'll do something when the show returns to change that.
the last half of season 6 was terrible but still will buy it because of the first half but season which was mostly but not all first class. 7 was dreadful so not going near it. If the writers do not know how old Castle is or how long it is since he met Beckett then I an not going to spend money to watch incorrect drivel.
the wedding was a travesty. the "Sleeper" episode was beyond weak and Hollander's woods? wtf....
ah yes Hollanders woods where Castle does not know his birthday neither how long it has been since he first met Beckett. outstanding writing.
I think the writers didn't clearly established what Jane and Weller are for each other and that strips the kiss scene of its power. If they are childhood friends with a little sister vibe to it , the kiss is creepy weird.If they are into the long lost first love vibe , the kiss lacks a lot of sweet memories background.If it's only based on how emotionnaly vulnerable she is, the kiss was a mistake.
I don't think there has ever been a little sister vibe between Kurt and Jane.
Hope & BO Forever, that was a strong love bond that can't be replaced by giving hope another love, the PPL, fans, will always want the love, adventure, they shared since teens, I don't think hope could love another as she loved Bo Brady,
I said to my wife after 10 minutes "I hope this isn't just an hour of Kevin's psychosis" - even though I knew by that point, it was definitely going to be that - all in all, it was a filler hour (IMHO) - akin to the reasonably pointless "The Fly" episode in Breaking Bad, which ultimately could have been taken out completely, and we'd have been been no better or worse off - in this instance, this episode hasn't advanced the story even one second along, and while I enjoyed the episode, I prefer the stories of what's going on in the real Leftovers world MUCH more.
