"...what is Thomas up (to)?" Word is, he's trying to "cure his homosexuality" by taking some drug. Some say it's cocaine, others say it's something called apomorphine. Either way, the drug was a follow-up to ECT and was what passed for "conversion therapy" back then. "Bye-bye baby) Bunting...." Or is that "bye bye Bunting baby"

Though I unfortunately still think Jack and Emily are the show writers endgame (why else have that unnecessary final scene of Jack seeing Bemily?) I'd like to think that this week's theme - of Emily leaving Amanda in the past - would be the best possible opportunity of abandoning that plan, and leaving that pairing in the past where it belongs. I hate that no one discusses Aiden or the other Amanda anymore since both were on my mind throughout this episode. I would've liked Ems to discuss keeping the name as a tribute to her sister, and I hate that the show acts like Emily-Victoria-David are all on pretty much a level playing field. Does David know that Victoria had Amanda locked in a mental institution as a child? Was that for Daniel too? And Emily remains the one who hasn't killed in cold blood. I know this is weird, but I sorta miss Charlotte. I don't know why given that I've pretty much despised every storyline she's ever been involved with, maybe it's just that I think she should talk to Margaux, as someone who has hated Emily, but come through with some greater perspective (though I suppose Jack applies here too).
I was really intrigued by this show for the first 2 episodes. The sometime awkward dynamic of a marriage, and the future quirky relationship of their close friends. That was great right up till half way through tonight's episode. Why do we once again have to have a potential affair written in to every story line lately involving a couple struggling with everyday issues and what can become the day to day doldrums of a marriage. If they are going to use the cookie cutter affair story line to show the struggle of a marriage, then I am out.
You know, I think it's indicative of just how frequent they are in real life for one thing. However, I am getting a little sick of the exploration of women having affairs. We get it already. For years women have been shown as having been cheated on and now Hollywood is trying to catch up. Unfortunately, it's just painting women in a bad light. I, apparently, need to take Hollywood by storm. Fingers crossed Michelle stays firmly planted on the right side of the line.
Carissa, you storming Hollywood is a campaign I could get behind. Your right that in an attempt to bring equality to different issues, they are actually doing both genders no favor. This show has been really fun up till now and I think the Duplass Brothers are great at writing this kind of edgy humor mixed with reality, however taking Michelle ' s 2 current issues, their boring sex life, and what kind of school to send their daughter to, and wrap it all up with the handsome, divorced charter school dude, was almost lazy writing on their part. Seen it before on Parenthood with Julia and the Bravermans school. But hey, I am probably getting upset over nothing. If Tina gets involved it might really get funny. Got to love how compassionate Brett is about his work.
Does anyone know why Madam Secretary only has two episodes in January, and then the next one is until March? It had a hiatus for the whole of December...
The sex is so cute !!!!!! It makes me tingle!!?
I definitely didn't see the Carol storyline coming! Lots of new avenues opened up in this episode. Can't wait for the next!
Same here! Helen actually seems like a normal human being
Totally agree. Just when I was thinking the show was tubing they managed to reinvigorate it. I loved how Nolan destroyed the momma (although I still don't buy Nolan's marriage and I still think the twist will be a hook-up with Lyman). I love what they have done with Victoria - now I can pull for her. I can get into the Ben/Emily thing and also the Jack/Margaux endgame. Personally I hate destined couples especially the ones driven by "shippers".
Agreed, but I wasn't aware that there really were many Jack-Emily shippers at all.
THIS WAS AN AWESOME SEASON FINALE!!!! ...except this was billed as a 4 week mini-series during hiatus of Once upon a time. also how the story laid out with "2 episodes" a week was poorly chosen. i get there were two stories each week, but there were often themes that crossed over from one episode to the other. I would rather have a nice fulfilling close to quench my thirst for new episodes. not to mention other channels can now play for my time with their shows in february since ABC has nothing but AFV reruns planned.
"Its called a lance, hellooo!"
"Kings" - a brilliant and lavish reinterpretation of the Biblical story of David and Saul, with superb performances by Ian McShane, Susanna Thompson, Sebastian Stan, Dylan Baker and Eamonn Walker. Hardly anyone watched it, though, and it was cancelled after one season. I still miss it. "Murder One" - the vastly altered second season wasn't as great as the first, but still head and shoulders above many shows. That first season - which followed one high profile murder case from beginning to end - may have been ahead of its time, as it proved to be a foreshadowing of the highly successful "24". It also featured a master class in acting by Stanley Tucci, and led to my deep crush on Jason Gedrick.
