Great episode! Powerhouse performance by Linda Gray!
Kol Mikaelson...bring him back
Another big disappointment tonight on Dallas. More about JR than anything else. Elena exposes the fraud that was the framing of Cliff Barnes for JR's murder after Drew Ramos' funeral, and there was the big fireworks at the beginning of the show. But after that, everything was helter skelter from there. No coherency and no real sense of purpose to the rest of the show. Strange how no one in the family asked John Ross just how did Elena come into possession of JR's lettter in the first place. Just one of those obvious things that need not be mentioned I guess. It was great that Bobby smashed JR's picture and trashed his office as a sign that he now realizes that he has become JR, something that he never was in the original Dallas. Bobby always found another way to come out on top without breaking laws or getting dirty. This Bobby Ewing is totally unrecognizable from the Bobby Ewing of old. As I pointed out, Larry Hagman's death hurt more than people realize. Not only did the writers have to scrap everything they had planned around Larry Hagman's character, JR Ewing, they now seem to be making things up as they go along. And Ken Kercheval's character Cliff Barnes. What is up with this? Billionaires do not go to prison, not even in Mexico. Hard to believe that a major government contract company CEO is allowed to rot almost for the remainder of the show. And now Pamela has Cliff Barnes pardon in her possession. Who are the writers trying to kid here? Do they not know what to do with Cliff Barnes character or has he been one of those forgotten items on the back-burner not to be seen or heard of again. Writers, time to step up your game. Things are slipping. Time to put Dallas on top of the ratings here!!
Nice review..as one who read the series (don't worry I won't spoil it besides I'm hoping the TV show differs from the book), It was a great episode for two things. Fet joining the team and Jim's departure. I was confused about Eph as he destroyed the pilot vampire sand now he hesitates again? If Nora gets infected, is he going to be still conflicted?
Don't forget. Someone is supposed to leave the series. I think it might be Hetty, but I hope not.
It was funny when Fet was buying lottery tickets and scratch offs. I was thinking if he did win what about if he winds up dying and not able to use the money.
I bet that out of those 49 new shows. Like only 10 will survive the rest will get an ax before they go to 5 episodes. .
Oh wow. I did not know even one of these characters! Think I read too may books?
That's the best answer I've heard for not knowing these characters. No, you can never read too many books. However, more than one of these characters made their first appearance in a book. Hmmmm. ;-)
YES! A monomyth! Of course! Jane is not - very definitely not - a typical hero but he has been on a perilous journey seeking some kind of redemption. In his case, it's to be relieved of the regrets, pain and sorrow of his past. It takes a re-watching of all the episodes to see and appreciate the depth of this series as it plays out, knowing what the end will be (so far - the writers may have a surprise or two for us). We have only seen one end of Jane's journey - the achievement of his revenge goal. S7 should give us the coming-home part and show the direction Jane's life will take from now on. We may have seen a hint in how he helped that memory-impaired veteran in Red, White and Blue. A good way to make up for how he had once used his skills to exploit people. And I do hope the writers fix the cobbled up Red John ending. They did that in a hurry lest the show be canceled out from under them, which is understandable. But now they have S7 and the opportunity to bring some credibility to that part of the story. Let's hope so.
