Cisco is weird enough to be my friend if he wants to be. Elizaberth McCord is just about my mother's age, so too weird.
Laurel Lance is a twit, why would anyone want to be friends with her?
Rosalee, absolutely. Abby Sciuto, I'm there! Abbie from Sleepy Hollow, probably not, I think we'd get on each other's nerves. I often don't do well with Alphas, male or female. I think we'd both want to be in charge at the same time and get in each other's way roo much. Callie Torres is not the type of person I'd likely make friends with, Meredith either. Too much jumping in the sack, I think. To be honest, I don't think I'd want to be friends with anyone on Grey's Anatomy.
Good grief people! Who doesn't know that the good man who went to war was Rory?
I don't get why people keep saying "it's all Gibbs all the time" and "it's always all about Gibbs" ..........IMO, NO it isn't. We've had Vance dealing with the aftermath of his wife's murder. We've had Palmer having a child. We've had Ducky having a heart attack and the aftermath of that and also a little of Ducky's backstory and losing his mother. We've had Abby discovering she had a brother and her volunteer work. We've had McGee losing his father and for whatever reason not sharing that with the rest of the team. We've had Tony dealing with his father and his shenanigans. And now we have Bishop seemingly about to go through a divorce. So see, it isn't always all about Gibbs. I don't have a problem with how Gibbs is shown or portrayed. He's the star of the show and the central character on the show........
Agreed! Gibbs is the center but we get pleny of the others too.
I must say, before this episode, "Vaginal" and "Gandalf" were two words I would never have put together. Now I won't be able to watch Lord of the Rings with a straight face ever again! I was at work when my fiance' called me after watching this episode and told me that "one of those two dumbasses (even he knows they're a package deal) had gotten his arm stuck in a tube - you just gotta see it to believe it!" and of course the first thing I did when I got home was watched the DVR'd episode. Hilarious! But always with a heart, and wonderful character development. Love this show!
"But, was there really no where else Boyle could have parked?" In New York City, probably, NO. And I agree, what really grabbed my attention, though not in a good way was: a $14 cupcake?! Dang, I'm in the wrong business! Great episode, as usual.
It fascinates me how this team has grown and the capacity they have to play off one another as a true ensemble is wonderful! There has been so much character growth in this show. One moment, I can say Gina is my favorite character, the next, I say Charles, and then it has to be Holt. Love them all!
I loved this episode. I really liked we got to see Bishop deal with her problems in a mature way.
The thing with the dry clothes is the only part of this episode where Moffat failed. Right after I realized that the Doctor was looping and the rooms reset themselves after a while, I wondered: Then how comes the clothes STAY in the room for so long? They should actually disappear before the next Doctor arrives. One could argue that they stay permanently because the Doctor brought them WITH HIM when he first arrived, so they are an outside element. But that would mean that the ashes of the dead Doctors would also stay permanently, which is clearly not the case, because they would have filled the entire transporter room over time.
Not a fail. The clothes are a manifestation of the bootstrap paradox, which was set up back in Before the Flood.
The room are self cleaning, I take it that means everything on the floor. But the clothes are not on the floor.My personal thought about those clothes is funnier : it is the reason why they could not show us the first loop...the Doctor was running around naked !!!
I try not to look too deep into this kinda paradox... or the entire show makes little sense. Why does his blood vanish from the floor, but his ashes do not? Why does the "diamond" wall not loop back to its original state? In fact, why does his entire body, bones and all, turn to ash (or sand) except the skull? Lilly... he's run around naked before.... see "Time of The Doctor", also to your first point; his boots are on the floor.As for the bootstrap paradox.... I think of it this way: Each time we pass through a point in time, actions can change that point in time. We never know what those changes are, since the previous results and consequences cease to exist. We no longer see them or are aware of them. Maybe the first time he left his clothes there, he was naked after. We don't know who wrote "I am in 12" and then buried it, he didn't did he? Where'd the shovel come from that first time in the hall, with dirt on it, from a reset room? If so and this was a trap, why was it set with that there? We have to assume previous versions of himself left clues in other ways. We saw one point in time caused by previous actions. Maybe other times were different. We'd never know. At some future point he begins to see the hole being made in the wall, that makes it easier to know what to do. Maybe some times he brings the shovel with him. Maybe some times he doesn't even hit that wall. The only thing he must actually do every time to make the story work is bring himself back from the teleporter logs to start another cycle. Great story!
