I enjoyed this show a lot. It'll be the first new show I watch since Black List and before that Elementary (just to point out how few shows interest me personally). I may have misunderstood, but I don't think the reviewer recognized that he's the team leader, that Gravely and all the others are under him, which was why he was giving them assignments. Perhaps what was confusing is that he doesn't pay attention to what they're each doing after he directs them due to all his bad habits. I also think the talking to himself is original (and so easy for the others to make fun of him for). And he is the best cop in the room, figuring things out before forensics and investigation can verify his conclusions. Great premiere!
I did not recognize in the review that he is in charge of the team, I felt that it was obvious though. I still think it is an insert your description her for a cop who is in charge of a team by his genius. The difference here is that no one likes him. It was also said that he was demoted for his health at hinted at that his team's status isn't that high. It is just an interesting situation that they were in from the beginning, but I suspect solving the murder will be good for their careers and reputation. I agree, the talking to himself is original, especially because it is all about his thoughts about people. He does have an interesting perspective.
0 stars. It was awful.
it was just "meh"
The J2s ARE the show, and to have them cut repeatedly to Cas/Claire and Crowley/Rowena's totally separate...and 100% boring...stories is nothing but an interruption into what could have been a great episode. I liked Rowena at first, but she has been turned into nothing more than a Disney Wicked Witch who makes Crowley look like a moron. Mark S. is too talented and deserves better than this. There is no hope for the Cas/Claire story. It's just awful.
Sad to see that yet again the abused becomes the abuser even though this happens time and again in society. Some may consider it justified but all that was created was another victim...-The case was somewhat weak. It was glaringly obvious that de Merville wasn't the culprit from the beginning and you would think that Sherlock and/or Joan would have picked that up straight away.-Seems like Del tracked Kitty down and hired Joan to keep tabs on her... What boss would grant that type of leeway on the very first day to a new employee? He was too amenable from the start, which immediately put him in my suspicious column! -I have a feeling that Kitty won't survive the season...
Ophilia Lovibond gave her all, as she said she would, but not to catch her torturer, but to give a first rate performance. At the beginning, in a short and concise scene, when Sherlock broke the news to her, she had to express astonishment, fear, frustration and rage, not so easy when you only have a very brief script and a short time to convey all those feelings, especially to a person such as Sherlock. Then all throughout the search, her facial expressions spoke volumes and never for a moment she gave in to sentimentality or being over the top. At the end, to wrap up her fear, anxiety and pain, she simply brought out the quivering voice of almost a lost child who was shedding tears over her lost innocence. Now I see the wisdom of Elementary writers and producers in introducing a cocky and boring Kitty in the story as they did, because she absolutely had to contain all those intense feelings and let them out only when her scars and her torturer came to be known simultaneously. What a brilliant show this episode was and Elementary in general, more like a movie than a TV show, in the same category as The Dark Knight and The Panic Room. Really looking forward to the next episode.
I agree. I used to think of Kitty as a flat, boring character but after this it all makes sense. She was bottling up her emotions and now she' confronted with her worst fears. The episode itself was pretty canned and if I could call the plot twists before they happened (which I did) it boggles the mind that Sherlock and Watson didn't figure it out. This does not change the fact that the actress who played Kitty knocked her character out of the park.
I completely agree with you about the performance of Ophelia Lovibond. (I finally worked out where I know her from - the pink assistant in Guardians of the Galaxy!) Also, I thought JLM and LL's performances were wonderful too. -Sherlock and Joan's performances, on the other hand, were off. It never made any sense that de Merville was Kitty's attacker. No passport, no record of travel, access to as many girls to rape and abuse as he wanted... Nothing fit and they completely missed it, or chose to ignore it. Bell and the Captain missed it too. Not great when these people are meant to be fantastic detectives...-I have a bad feeling for Kitty's future...
This episode was bbittersweet it was very good episode with Amber going hospital was funny poor Hank trying to get her to the hospital and running the red light and scaring Sarah and Amber. Jasemine and Kristina was ok but Kristina should have left well enough alone Adam and Crosby argue back and fourth. Zeek and Camilla was so sad and that Sara and Zeek part. And I loved Adam and that kid making the cake was good. Amber finally giving birth to her sn and she named him Zeek then Zeek holding his great grandson as Amber had head on His shoulder. I only one more episode until the last episode is next week it sad I don't want to end
Charles Fredric Andrus, a horticulturist at the USDA Vegetable Breeding Laboratory in Charleston, South Carolina, set out to produce a disease-resistant and wilt-resistant watermelon.
Sherlock with the headphones reminded me of the bee colony he had on the roof. Whatever happened to his bees? Or did I miss something when he came back to New York?
I'm sure they're still up there. He probably just didn't want to be up on the roof in the cold. Plus, he can make the bees much louder with the headphones. He's listened to them electronically at least once before. Can't remember what episode. I think it was at the precinct, because I think I remember it driving Gregson nuts.
Why is Kyle in a wheelchair
Christopher Reeve and Lynda Carter were basically unknowns before THEY became household names as ,respectively, SUPERMAN and WONDER WOMAN. I would recommend Melissa take some physical training to bulk up somewhat for this role. All actors who play these type of characters must undergo deep physical training to make the characters look believable. I would also like to see Helen Slater involved in some way.
