"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.
This one is all on Jane. He cannot bear to lose Lisbon but if he interferes with how she does her job he will because Lisbon will never restrict how she does her job to keep Jane from worrying. Lisbon has given and given and given all her life and this is one line she won't cross. That was evident in that foosball game. It let jane know she was in charge of her life. That was the storyline purpose of that scene. Besides, Jane wants someone who will take care of him, so he will do whatever it takes to handle his fears and let Lisbon be Lisbon. For her part, Lisbon will help him deal with that emotionally. Notice how she handled that airplane meltdown when they were in that interrogation room. She knew how stressed he was and what an effort it took to get his feelings out. So she eased Jane into their old familiar bantering mode where she knew he would be comfortable. She's as much of a mentalist where Jane is concerned as Jane is with everyone else - except Lisbon. He really can't read her very well. As he said, she's messy inside. But it will work out because they love each other. I have never seen actors portray such deep love so subtly and with almost no physical interaction. It's just a lot of very little things that add up to an amazing performance. They both deserve an award.
I'm going to watch every season every year! I just wished we didnt have to wait a whole entire year for it. Every show I love to watch i get to see 10-18 episodes then its over :(
Anybody know the story with the quatermaster's replacement from last season, can't find any info. His replacement looks a lot like him, just wondering.
From what I understand the original actor had a scheduling conflict. They do look very similar, so it didn't throw me much.
Unfortunately, the original actor had to step down because he is currently fighting brain cancer. The actor, Jannes Eiselen, was asked about his time on "Black Sails" and his medical condition; he replied, "Well, two things happened: I got my big break and then I broke." He has a website under his name if you want to read more about him and his fight.
That's very sad Sherri, I had no idea. Thanks for bringing Jannes Eiselen's struggle to our attention.
I don't think he has long for this show anyways... Thanks for the info.
It was a good episode considering the swashbuckling, gripping intensity that was the apocalypse arc. The painting was really cool and an interesting, creative enemy. As for the characters, Katrina's flashbacks drew me out of the story too. The fact her friend's name was Abigail threw me off for some reason. Complexity is forced onto Katrina's character and her magic seems so pathetic. I still dunno about her. Can't remember what jenny and the brigand got up to in that episode, or Abigail, bar the usual cautioning of a genius mind. This show needs to pick up the pace again!
it's a great list, but NO KELLI GIDDISH OF LAW & ORDER SVU? Are you kidding me? Was it a requirement to be a leading lady of a show? Did they not list her because Mariska Hargitay was on the list? I think it should have been a list of 20 then. Very disappointed that Kelli wasn't there. There were 2 or 3 I would have deleted and replaced with her.
The best part of the show is the chemistry between Ichabod and Abbie. I understand that Ichabod and Katrina are married and have a child blah blah blah. That was over two centuries ago and now the love is just being forced. What exactly does Katrina contribute to the show? Without her magic she's perfectly useless, she causes trouble, unnecessary distractions, and separation on Ichabbie. Even if I didn't ship Ichabod and Abbie, the whole Ichabod and Katrina thing does nothing for me. It feels like it's going nowhere, she has way better chemistry with Abraham. I hate to say it but this is probably one of the most boring episodes for me. I usually can't take my eyes off the screen for fear that I'll miss something if I even blink. I kept zoning out watching this, Colby was the most interesting part of the whole thing. The pizzazz isn't there. I don't know what's going on but if it keeps dragging then I might have to stop watching. P.s. Maybe if someone can explain to me the logicality of keeping Katrina along, maybe I can see her relevance in the long run and thus become able to tolerate her a little better.
She has rudimentary magic and knowledge of the arcane.
dusgrace how they destroyed this show with Kitty ..totally ruined teh sherlock/watson partnership , took up time gregson and bell could have used and all to just stick a young pretty face in hope of getting new fans and to hell with the original fans... way to ruin a show ..no wonder this season has been such a bust and i for one wont be wtaching until kitty is gone
Probably my favorite Grimm episode
