they need to bring out new shows because vampire diaries is getting boring and repetitive now its run its course get something new on thats not on the same time slot as a high ratings show p.s they better not cancel HOD
Vampire Diaries will never get old! I've never watched HOD because it has never sparked an interest for me. Disappointed to see Starcrossed but honestly not surprised. I'm still kind of upset about them canceling Secret Circle.
It's old already. The repetitive storylines speak for themselves.
Can someone tell me why Blake left the series. I know why Gideon and Prentiss left, but not Blake.
Enjoyed this episode. Mike and Harvey as enemies then bonding after the Rachel melt down was great if even short lived Donna and Louis were great. Louis looking lot happier, after all the grief he took from Mike. Rachels character is turning into a big disappointment for me and this show. This mental affair she's having with Logan will most likely turn into a physical affair real soon. I am really disappointed when they take a strong, intelligent, hard working, woman, and destroy her character with cheating . It might be different if Mike had treated her badly or was neglecting, but he's been really supporting of her and I thought they truly loved each other. This is a really great show, just wish they hadn't destroyed a good character, Rachel, with a sexual affair. IMO.
Sounds like it will be a good season. Like the sound of this. Glad to hear that Tony will meet someone. I am so sick of the Bishop-hating and the Ziva-whorshiping. I've been a fan since the beginning and for me Kate was the best agent. It took me a while to like Ziva, mostly because of the Ari-connection and the the Tiva thing. I just don't get why people think Ziva and Tony belong together. Ziva never trusted Tony and when he made it clear he was there for her she slept with Adam.
Kate was my favorite too. They had banter but always backed each other up. They made each other better while Ziva just tore Tony down. I tired of Ziva's air of superiority and the fact that the writers turned her into superwoman and dumbed down Tony in order to elevate her the last few seasons. I started out liking Ziva's spunk but then came Boxed In when she meanly and smugly left Tony out of the dinner party and it was all downhill from there. The asking Gibbs to throw him off the team, pointing a gun at him. The hurt on his face when she left him out in Chasing Ghosts. Why people want Tony to be with someone who has hurt him physically and emotionally and romantically I just can't comprehend. I can only assume they hate Tony. There's no other reason.
Kate demeaned Tony at every opportunity. She was meaner to him than Ziva ever was.
So says the baby killing Ziva worshiper.
I don't agree that she was "meaner", but yes ... she also demeaned Tony. Difference is, no one was shoving Tony into Kate's arms and trying to convince us that they were soulmates and deeply in love.
You might want to talk to the actors about it, because that's how they played it.
Not really.. Ziva was horrible. Kate and Tony gave it back and forth but when push came to shove, they had each other's backs. Ziva was all about Ziva. She treated Tony like scum. I couldn't stand her.
Kate's last words were mocking Tony. That was their relationship. She stuck around when he had the plague but that's hardly redeeming.
I don't see it that way at all. I don't find any heat behind Kate's snarking to Tony and Tony's snarking to Kate. It is a lot like siblings treat each other to me. I have a brother and we snarked at each other lots growing up but it didn't mean anything. I have 4 nieces and nephews and they snipe at each other one minute and show love and compassion the next. That's what siblings do in many families. I had a completely different feel for Ziva's snark against Tony. I think it was mean many times. Regardless, they all snarked. But going words, Ziva's the only one whose actions were also cruel to him time and again.
I gotta say, I am generally not a fan of cheating spouse S/Ls, but we knew going in that that was the whole premise of the show, so I actually enjoyed it. I also agree that while it's written as a dark drama, there is a comedic element that helps lighted things up. Very well written and very good acting. I wouldn't mind if they cut back on the extramarital sex soon, and just focused on the effects of disclosure, and then the repair of what is pretty much a great marriage. However, that would mean several new S/L'S and plot twist, to carry thru a second season. I guess we'll see. Although I accidentally deleted it, so I couldn't re watch the ending, I think Grace was calling Simon to end things. Would have been interesting if she left voice mail.
Well do I feel like an idiot and very disappointed. I just watched a repeat of the 1st episode and realized how wrong I was about Grace. Maybe as the professional reviewer that you are, you may have already figured this out, but (and this could be a spoiler) this isn't a business relationship Grace is having with Simon, it's a emotional relationship. Simon was smart enough to cover it up to hide their relationship, dismissing it as an escort arrangements .Grace went to see hide the true deal. Was puzzled by her bike ride to his apartment but I believe now that they hooked up with out a business arrangements. This is truly a list driven setup. Really disappointed now that I figured it out. So much for no emotional strings between Grace and Simon, however I can see now how they will play this out over the season, switching back and forth between present day and 6 month time line. They only good news is Grace suspects something not right and she's clearly starting to fill guilty .Will still watch next episodes, but with a bad taste in my mouth in regards to Grace. So disappointed.
I believe Simon will remain a part of the series, so in what capacity will be interesting. If he tells Grace what he knows and she keeps it from Neil so they are both hiding something from one another, that will really make for a unique story. Both knowingly doing the wrong thing and yet both aching to reconnect in their marriage. Definitely unique.
I can see that happening Carissa as long as they don't have Grace and Kevin developing some kind of emotional ties to their extra marital sex partners. The whole premise of this show is sex with no string attached on order to save their marriage. I see Grace is getting sex from a stranger but yet she turned down Kevin one night. Kevin is gaining knowledge from his clients on how his wife of 18 years maybe feeling and at the same time making cash to replace the money his wife is spending on her escort. As long as they keep these affairs with no emotional ties whatsoever the show will be great.
Sorry, I screwed up the,name ,should be Neil not Kevin, Carissa, I really appreciate your recaps and reviews. Have seen your work here and other reviews not posted here.
No need to apologize! I make mistakes in my reviews sometimes. It's difficult remember so many names and sometimes the excitement of the moment takes over. Wish I could say I was perfect! Thanks for the kind words. It's nice to hear on occasion. I hope you keep reading and commenting!
I have to start that I have just started watching Suits in the last year. Find it really enjoying, and informative about the fast paced and aggressive world of corporate finance and those behind it. However, I don't get why we need to be constantly bombarded with the stupid cheating spouse or girl friend S/L . Rachel is clearly about to start a physical affair with Logan, since she's already having a mental affair. Would be different, if Mike had treated her badly or was neglecting, but he's been real supportive. What's even worse is that Rachel has been a great example of a hard working young woman, trying to make it in an aggressive men's world. This affair totally demeans the character .Done ranting.
I agree with this, this is so upsetting. I don't know what the hell the writers were thinking.
I'm so tired of everyone saying Sami had no right to drop the bomb on Abby in front of Jennifer. Not too long ago little Miss Abby was trying to in bed with Austin, and now she really did with EJ. I'm okay with Jennifer as a mother standing by her daughter. Shouldn't Jennifer be asking herself where she went wrong as a mother? EJ has his blame in this mess, but he is not responsible for all of it. I wish Jennifer would just get off of her high horse. For that matter, all of the Hortons need to get off of their high horse. Then again, I'm only watching Days to see Allison Sweeney leave. I am happy for her, but sad to see her character leave. It is a shame that the writers waited until now to team her up with Kate. The two of them working together has been the best thing to happen in a long time. I know they don't trust each other completely, but I think there is more respect for each other.
I would like to see Tony with a new love interest. Since about Season 8, he had been trying to bend over backward for Ziva. Maybe a change of pace would be nice. I liked Cote dePablo, but time must go on. I also would like to see a promotion for Tony, he and his team could have the office space next to Gibbs, just like Barrett did. When they said that there was a new NCIS spin off, I was hoping MW would have an opportunity to lead that show and make a success of it. However, as a long time fan, I will watch and enjoy NCIS. Love all the cast and characters !
I've been faithful to the show since Cote's departure, and some of the episodes have been ok. All in all, I have to honestly say the show has lost its edge. Bishop is great. It's not her fault.. The family unity has been disrupted in a way that cannot be repaired unless Ziva returns. Since that's not going to happen, I say let's make this the last season and go out on top. Just one fan's opinion.
I'm glad Ziva is gone but agree that the show has lost its edge. They tried too hard to make us like Ellie and instead wrote her inconsistently and over exposed her. It's not her fault. Part of the dullness on the show is that it has become too Gibbs centric. Tony, who used to be an important character does next to nothing now while Gibbs hogs all the big hero moments and we get episode after episode revealing some secret from his past. Gibbs has no mysteries left that I care to see and yet, without a doubt, half of season 12 will be dedicated to bringing more Gibbs stories to light. Boring and waaaaaay overused plot device at this point. Would it kill them to give Tony a big multi episode arc? Apparently it would since he hasn't had one for 7 seasons not. My prediction: Tony meets a woman will amount to nothing and we'll have another season devoted to exploring the "mysteries" of super Gibbs. who will be targeted by a super villain in the season finale.
If you count the season 9 arc with John cole trying to kill him that sort of counts.
Wait, you're capable of making a post that does not refer to dead babies? Miracle of miracles.
The show has always been Gibbs centric, but now it's out of control. Every character's sole purpose is to worship at the altar of Gibbs. He's got the new girl who is his new partner, and the experienced guys are put on the shelf. I'm sick of the Gibbs worship at the expense of everyeone else. And of course Tony's woman will amount to nothing, because they will never again find an actress with the chemistry he had with de Pablo. It can't be done.
BIshop is not great. She's not believable as an agent or a genius. She can't act or do action scenes. She doesn't belong on the show.
In short 'Hail to the Cote disembowel a baby to make her return'
