I don't understand why anybody would root for Jack/Emily, they are as mismatched as can be. If anything getting these two together would ultimately be punishment for Emily, she'd be bored out of her mind. Sorry Jemily fans!
I think I liked it more than you did. From your description, it sounds like you didn't like the episode much at all, and yet you still gave it a 4-star review. There is serious "grade inflation" on this web site (for all shows, not just Big Bang Theory). No matter how horrible the review, things rarely get less than 3 starts. Of course, since these ratings don't matter anyway... :).
Sorry to say, but I think this show JTS in two unrelated areas last season. Getting Kensi and Deeks together sexually was a huge mistake. Then the writers compounded that by sending Kensi off to Afghanistan as a "sniper." You don't need to know much about military snipers to realize that it is a full-time occupation, a calling. Certainly not something you are just thrown into without burning tens of thousands of rounds of ammo on the range. The producers obvious never read Carlos Hathcock's autobiography.
or may be the doc friend of 3XK made this all happen .. made him forget all and made an imposter do all th edirty work.. #XK could handle all the minute details like DNA and all..
We're closing in on two weeks since the finale and we still do not know the fate of the show. I would like to take a moment to thank Carissa and the other posters for their frank and civil discussions and insightful comments. As I previously mentioned, I have never posted a comment online prior to watching this show and reading the discussions on this site. In my personal life, I'm a very private person and my personal thoughts are just that. If I may generalize for a minute, men, including myself, have a difficult time in our society because we often have no one that we can talk to about life and our feelings beyond our spouse (and there are times that we need to talk to someone other than our partners). That's why I enjoy the interaction on this board. It gives us men a way to talk about some very personal matters without other people being too judgmental. Thank you for letting me get some things off my chest. I hope that there is a second season and I'll plan on joining the conversation if it happens. That, having been said, he's my question to all of you. I asked Golfingdocp why are women drawn to the bad boys when it comes to an affair (I am assuming this to be a fact)? Why is Grace drawn to Simon? He's good looking, young, and I assume a great lover, and a person who listens. But Neil can fill those qualities too (though he needs to learn to listen more) and has much more to give. What would happen in the second season that could send her back into Simon's arms. After having learned the depth of Neil's love for her and his patience, what could cause her to choose Simon over Neil. I discussed earlier with Winter that I have been involved in a number of relationships with women prior to my marriage and that while I loved those women, I knew they were not the "one" and that when I met my wife, I knew she was the "one". The level and intensity of my love for my wife clearly overshadows most of my previous relationships. I feel that Grace also loves Neil more than she could ever love Simon. So what could cause her to leave Neil or risk losing Neil to go to Simon? I wish the women would let us know what they are thinking.
I agree that some women need to answer the question about bad boys. I am not sure they think bad boys areaffair material. I wouldn’t think that Simon fits into the bad boy category. In high school, I think it is a bit of a walk on the wild side. It is experiencing something new an unknown. Itmight feel a little risky. In high school I had a reputation of being a bad boy (I don’t think that I was). I think part of my appeal was that highs school girl wanted to challenge their parents authority. I suspect that the old a woman gets, the less appeal bad boys have.
Excitement,. Grace wanted to be chased and wooed. Simon did that, Neil wasn't. Every time Neil got jealous Grace got hot. She did the nude shoot. It was a challenge. "When your ready to show them what a real women looks like" She got excited and jumped in. If a woman isn't ready to settle down they go for the excitement.
The couch gag was so strange, it looked like it was animated by a 5 year old. Rabbi Krustovsky was on a handful of episodes in 25 seasons of the show so he's not a secondary character that people are going to miss. I couldn't care less about the B-plot storyline, it was only there to fill up the time slot. We really didn't need another episode where Bart tries to help Krusty with a problem. Overall, the episode ended up being a disappointment for all the hype that it got.
I agree with the reviewer about Paige's character--there is something missing in terms of her development. Hopefully, they'll find a way to fill that void, but I repeat my comment from last week in saying please PLEASE PLEEEEEEEEEEASE....do NOT do that by turning her into a romantic interest for Walter; CBS already has enough of these "pretty woman / socially inept genius" relationships. As for last night's episode, I wasn't blown away, but the premise was certainly interesting, if a bit fantastical (like last week's plot). I could have done with a little less freaking out from Sylvester (he's starting to encroach into "Sheldon Cooper" territory); hopefully, that won't be a regular thing. I liked hearing a bit about each character's backstory, including Happy's. Disappointed to see Toby revert to his old ways--for someone so good at reading people, he's a hot buttered mess.
David Thaler Yes! We need SOMETHING for Paige to do, something to make her more interesting. A romance would not do that. She needs more things that she can contribute all by herself. Ugh, I just pictured Walter and her as a couple and I didn't like it. Just no. The writers should have dialed down Sylvester's freak outs or maybe cut out a couple of them. It becomes excessive, I agree. I loved learning about Happy. I want to see more of her, and to have a case where her mechanical expertise really gets to shine. Actually, a case where someone besides Walter takes more of a lead would be great. Toby, Toby, Toby, will he ever learn?
Right now, Paige is focusing on her son, Ralph. And by working with these geniuses, she is able to provide a better life for him. And the Scorpion team is helping her to understand her son!
I found this to be solid second episode for a new series. Compared to NCIS: LA that followed this was far better. Hopefully the upcoming episodes will provide opportunities for appropriate character development and not force something on us. The insight into Walter's sister was consistent with the storyline. And I liked Paige's new role but please don't rush into a romantic involvement. the inclusion of Paige's son was also handled well.
Glenn H It was a decent second episode. I liked it more than the pilot, so already the writers are on the right track. I agree, Walter's sister tied in nicely with the case. The same with Agent Gallo. A romantic involvement would be a huge mistake, in my opinion. I don't think there are any people out there who are really pushing for them to get together. Paige's son is one of my favorites. Anytime he is on screen it is great.
I agree with the reviewer,overall a good hour of television the only complaint is with the Kensi and Talia relationship. Talia from day 1 has been portrayed as arrogant, smug and extremely unprofessional. She was downright mean to Kensi and having them become buddies and gang up on Deeks who had done nothing but his job was offensive. I hope we never see Talia again.
Really I though she was more professional than Kensi who was more worried about how to insult deek and get him fire then save the city
Kensi did start with a head butt and Talia responded just like any guy would have. I'd be happy for Talia to become the new partner for Deeks. I thought they worked well together in one episode. The on again/off again relationship between Deeks and Kensi is boring, but then this episode was a bit of a snoozer since we all knew Callen and Sam would survive.
Stana Katic gave an amazing performance. The episode was intense. I was wondering though if Nathan fillion didn't have a problem about not being in the first 45 MINUTES of the shows season opener. I know the ep was about him but he wasn't in it until the end. and I kept waiting for some scenes with him.
