Love Marc and April chemistry
Love Marc and April's chemistry
There should be no second season. We had an enjoyable10 hour mini-series, the big mysteries were solved, most of the major questions were answered and it is now time to move on. We all understand the old axiom: "The more things change, the more they remain the same!"
I have to say I loved Karen and Alec. And I would think Viv will find it more strange that they didn't keep up with business as usual and spend time together than if they acted normal. They should quit acting guilty! Joss is a hot mess. She has rely stepped in it now! I think it will take about two minutes for the agent to have Harry the Hottie in her bed. Joss who?
I kinda agree about Vivian. Vivian is an interesting woman because she was the first one who embraced their new relationship with all that she had. She's had no reservations, she even encourages Karen and Alec to bond more in her own way. She's often the glue that keeps them as a trio together. Plus she picked up early on that Karen was attracted to her husband and her response was that she found it attractive. She also knows about Karens past as a mistress and her feelings about and her insecurity that that's all she was meant to be. I think her problem wouldn't be that Alex and Karen hooked up. Her problem will be that her husband who never lies to her has lied to her. She sometimes strikes me as that woman who knows she's dying so her last mission is to set up her husband with the perfect woman she approves of. Shes very intuitive. She picks up on both of their reservations about the whole thing and both of their attractions towards the other. She seems to genuinely enjoy sharing her husband, not just sexually but emotionally because its like she knows alec enjoys having a professional colleague that also reminds him to not be so serious, and she knows that Karen genuinely needs to know that someone cares and can be tender. There's almost this maternal vibe that she has with the way that she genuinely wants them both to be happy and it makes her happy. It'll be interesting to see how it all plays out.
An interesting ending, but not a hundredth as powerful as the ending in the books.And that's a shame; Crouch's trilogy was one of the best science fiction novels I have read in years - maybe decades - and the ending was one of the most powerful I've _ever_ read.For the series, we have instead a "cliffhanger" that's never going to climb up off the edge and an ending that is nothing of the sort. The whole "children of the corn" thing is so tiresome. Just another re-hash of the popular wave of nihilism that we have to have droned at us in every single story.Here we had a tale of true human heroism and hope triumphant against evil and instead went down the Same Old Road of dead heroes, no hope and Evil Wins Again.Ho-freaking-hum.Note to television and movie producers: Not every show must, or should, be "Game of Thrones". (Even "Game of Thrones" needs to stop being "Game of Thrones".)Instead, please, let's have some heroes again.They are, after all, the only people whose stories are worth watching.
I'm so glad someone else read and enjoyed the books as much as I did. I was so disappointed in the series, especially the addition of Ethan's kid as some giant character, which in turn made the school's importantce too inflated. Oh, come to think of it, I didn't enjoy the change in trajectory for Pam, either. I enjoyed the books just as they were and thought we were heading there in the first couple eps of the series. Oh how wrong I was. What stinks is this series likely squashed any chance for Crouch to carry on with the book series if Fox passes on Season 2. Still an if, according to Shamalamadingdong and an interview on THR. Sigh.
Does anyone else feel like Season 1 was awesome, and everything after has been glorified fan-fiction? Compared to season 1, this show is mediocre. It just seems like some of the characters are aimlessly moving in circles.
Yeah, me! Couldn't wait for season 3 to start and now I have to realize that Graceland is getting worse and worse every weak. This Ari story is killing me. Briggs is not even half the big hero he was once, Paige is the weakest link, Charlie is pregnant, Mike is a drug addict, Jake is fine and at least we have Johnny who's done something and at least Lucia is alive and well and finally free. I see no future for this show if it goes on like this, seriously.
YES!!!!! i have been saying that this year has been pretty yawn inducing at times. EVERYONE seems disconnected off doing their own thing when the success of the show was really predicated off them working together as a team despite having different individual assignments. they need to get back to that. just way too disjointed. i thought season 2 was ok, not great like season 1 but still pretty entertaining. but this year has really been a slow grind and i'm praying it picks up or it won't last long since USA is quick to cut the cord on under-performing shows.
I voted other, bc im a HUGE swanqueen shipper, and when Marian came back, I was both delighted and crushed, bc it's gonna be hard for Regina to get over this :(
Nice to see they finally wrapped up the Solano story so that they can focus on the Armenians. Poor Johnny even when he won he lost at least with the case with Lucia. I said this before and I'll say it again Paul Briggs never owns up to his mistakes working with Ari he could have told Paige the maniac was left handed and now Paige is planning to go in deep with the Armenians because she feels responsible for Colby even though Briggs dragged the poor guy back in and neglected to mention Ari's left-handedness seriously in the time he's worked with Ari the guy smokes like a chimney and' Big Badass Briggs' didn't notice that he lights with his left? As I've said Paige knows her mistakes past and present and tries to right them anyway she can but she's trying to make up for a blunder Briggs did. Despite all this the ep had a moment that made it feel like the USA network of old the scene with Jakes and Mike especially Mike's reaction was priceless speaking of Mike here's hoping he learns from his mistakes last season and doesn't become arrogant the contents of the trunk isn't to be taken lightly. All in all satisfying ep
Maybe Briggs is setting Paige up for failure? Putting doubt in her and now putting her in under. Maybe he didn't count on the burning thing... But hes using her doubt now. Doing it to in some way get revenge for what she did to Mike? I know some crazy twisted logic. And seeing what Briggs actions towards Mike with Tape.... Not fully hinged person. But I think if given the chance, he might try and gets revenge on Paige.
"Indie is another alien" ... LOL! Good one!
And unfortunately very accurate. I had hopes that they would salvage the show. But how can Juliet, Joe, and Norrie be so clueless? They basically wasted a whole episode. The same could be said the same for Barbie. At least Sam acted but not far enough. Very frustrating the only saving grace would be that Indie is another alien that is working against the eggos.

Mark my words - I'll bet I am right. He's too intelligent.
Alien or the ghost/spirit of his dead wife.
I'm starting to think that Indie is the smartest character in the whole show!
What cliffhanger ending? As the episode's title says, the cycle begins again. Another season? Oh, no. No, no. A second season would only be a replay of the first, and it's clear that The First Generation is more full of itself than Dr. Loopy was. There is no place for succeeding seasons to go and it won't take long for this to devolve into the idiocy that is The Dome. No. One and done, please. Send this show back to cryosleep.
Absolutely, Gentler_Reader. Well said!
