Seeing Zeljko Ivanek's hairpiece made me think, that maybe the hair and make-up department can't do aging convincingly and decided to skip it ;-) hehe The interest and investment in Senator Royce's survival project could mean that the Army of the 12 Monkeys plan to ride out the plague in a shelter somewhere, and is still around somewhere in 2043. Maybe they also have a time machine, because Olivia seems to be popping up everywhere (and when) just like Cole...

This is really good. But my head hurts now. I think I'll go lie down.

Scandal Season 4 Episode 17 Review: Put A Ring On It

Miranda, you didn't finish the sentence "When James was murdered BY JAKE". You recall how the writers played that out? They tried to make the audience feel sorry for Jake by having him sit with James while he bled to death talking about how he'd make sure his daughter would be ok. Audience manipulation 101. There were people who actually felt sorry for Jake after that episode. Amazing. If what we think is going to happen with Jake happens with him, then I expect the same condemnation that you've aimed at Fitz for the last two seasons. You've mostly ignored the physical abuse that Olivia has suffered at the hands of Jake (black bodies never being quite as important as white bodies apparently), because he's single, while harping on about what a bad guy Fitz is, blatantly ignoring the fact that the writers were doing the most to make Jake a viable love interest for Liv, while destroying Fitz's character. The reason this show blew up so much was because of Fitz and Olivia and their relationship. We liked Fitz, and despite his marriage, we felt that they should be together. Fastforward a couple of years later, and Shonda takes an axe to their relationship, and taints it beyond recognition. All in an effort to make Jake seem like a good bet. They dumbed down Liv, turned Mellie into a figure to be pitied, and made Fitz behave in ways that made no sense. So of course the audience start looking at Jake as a viable option, we were pretty much force-fed him from day one. If Scott Foley had been a more credible actor, he may have even pulled it off, but a large section of the fans still stayed loyal to Fitz and Olivia, despite the efforts of the writers. So pardon me if I cry no tears for Jake if the writers do decide to go that route with him. It's not like he had much of a role on the show anyway. They've been desperately trying to fit him in, but the truth is, his only real role is as a third wheel in the Olitz relationship, and that whole dynamic has been stale since season 3. Foley should have stayed as a guest actor, and Ballard should have stayed a recurring character, especially when they were struggling with how to even fit David Rosen in too.

Grimm Season 4 Episode 15 Review: Double Date

Thanks for the great review! I am so glad you highlighted Renard's indignant little gripe about people not knowing the difference between Zauberbiests and Hexenbiests. That was so well-played and one of my favorite exchanges from the episode. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who got a kick out of that!
Speaking of which - that is, the difference between Zauberbiests and Hexenbiests, I have a theory about that. As we all know, gender is genetically determined in mammals - which I assume includes the Wesen - by the X-Y chromosome mechanism. Females have two X chromosomes but, only one X chromosome in each cell is active. Early on in development one X chromosome in each cell becomes deactivated and that same X chromosome remains deactivated in all of that cell's daughter cells. So my theory is that the essence of Hexenbiests is that they have at least a portion of both X chromosomes activated in at least some cells of their body. Since the genes on the X chromosome are disproportionately involved in neural development, this would explain their high intelligence and, in extreme cases, give rise to their telekinetic abilities. You can see for instance in Juliette's eyes when she is woged that her brain is revving like a double-turbocharged Lamborghini. And since having both X chromosomes active is usually a bad thing, this also accounts for their secondary characteristics - like the really bad combo skin.
X-inactivation is what accounts for things like the rarity of male tortoise shell cats. Fur color is determined by an X-linked gene. A female tortoise shell cat has genes coding for a different fur color on each X chromosome and the color of a patch of fur is determined by which X chromosome was switched off in the original cell from which that patch was derived. Male cats have only one X chromosome so no mottling, unless they are XXY! I think the relative rarity of Zauberbiests in comparison to Hexenbiests is due to something similar, although I haven't quite figured that out yet.
So, sorry for all that. I actually have this whole elaborate scheme worked out to explain how Grimm "blood" suppresses Hexenbiest-ness, how Adalind got her powers back, why Juliette can't be changed back by a Grimm's blood (basically Adalind just passed her "immunity" to her), why "made" Hexenbiests are more powerful than the ones that are born, etc. Of course, the danger is that you spend too time thinking about such things and then the writers pull some other explanation out of the hat but, I can't help myself.
I'm leaning towards Adalind's baby actually being Juliette's biological child as well. That sets up all sorts of interesting conflicts. Juliette and Nick both wanting to take that child from Adalind and not necessarily for the same reasons. Kelly wanting to raise her real grandchild, etc. And it give Adalind a real bargaining chip. I kind of thought they would have touched on that more in this episode, which would have helped to explain why she wasn't considering just terminating the pregnancy. Guess we had to have our perfunctory Adalind being Adalind scene. Her lack of emotional intelligence definitely cancels whatever enhanced brain power she might!

piss off moron this list as dumb as your pathetic excuses for reviews of Pretty Little Liars. Under the Dome, The Following and New Girl are some of the best shows on tv period put fucking awful hannibal or crappy, overrated game of thrones/walking dead on here and you might actually have some credibility ; )

Black Sails Season 2 Episode 10 Review: XVIII

That was a righteous season finale. Loved Vane and Flint. I think Flint knew that Silver lied about the gold. Flint knows how crafty Silver is and Vincent wasn't that creative.

They absolutely cannot let this show end this way- we the fans need closure!
