The Last Ship Season 2 Episode 11 Review: Valkyrie

I just saw, Tania Raymonde, on this weeks episode of The Last Ship! Wherr do I start. Dont blame the Captain for putting Dr Rhona Mitra on grounded punishment. Why is the President's message no where near as great as the ExO expresses. The rig was obviously going to be a trap. Injured civilians shouldn't carry firearms for the same reason they believe any looney could be trusted. Did the Captain or we the viewers really expect much action from those utility closets? Honestly, this is a favorite favorite show. I especially love that now I get to watch Tania Raymonde again. Can't wait for more The Last Ship ..

Ray Donovan is still one of the best running shows atm. Question is whether this is because it's really really good, or if the other shows just really really suck or started to (*cough* arrow).
I don't think the series is intended to be funny at parts. You criticized that you were missing the occasional joke from the earlier moments of the show. I never felt them to be a trait of the show, but as a lubricant to get the story going (until it built up enough so that viewers would notice how the lives of the characters all go to shit). Most funny things rather build on their absurdity (the stalker from the previous season(s)?), which is what the series still provides. Or is it normal for some Mexican woman to show her **** and suddenly turn out to be a dom who wants to marry you?
So far I get the feeling that all "plot holes" are somewhat intentional. That characters act like that because they're seriously, seriously fucked up. This is something that is well sold to me as a viewer. That crazy priest would be yet another example of that.

To be clear, I wasn't talking about intentionally serious moments that might have come across as silly, but heartfelt moments, such as those with Ray and Conor on Conor's birthday. They didn't mean to dance and laugh, but they wound up doing it anyway. Mickey had some with the kids, as well. Those moments are lost this season, and I miss them.

Suits Season 5 Episode 10 Review: Faith

I think it was Rachel's mother who did this to Mike. Rachel told her mother and here we go. Loved episode, but I wanted to see more of Harvey and Donna. I don't know how I can wait till winter.

Rachel's mother makes a lot of sense. As wildcards, the ethics professor from Harvard who seemed like he had a hunch about Mike, Troian B's character Claire, Trevor's wife.

Did Rachel tell her mother, didn't think she did? i think it might be Claire or Hardman........Claire would be an interesting twist (and a good excuse for the real-life couple to work with each other), and confirmation she is with Trevor would be cool too, though i think Trevor might be with Jenny.

Well said! The chicks have come home to roost for Scott and Stiles. I was angry at Scott for taking Theo's word over Stiles's, but Stiles made no attempt to explain what happened. He should have realized that Theo had told a whopper. The wrench was a clue. But he's been off his game cuz he kept his guilty secret too long. The inhaler. I knew something was wrong with it. Should have caught on sooner, after Theo tossed it to Scott some episodes ago. As you said, the fight with Liam was a yawn, since we knew how it would end. And we knew Scott wasn't dead. Melissa was great, though. I'm not impressed with this season so far. Not feeling like holding my breath till March.

Season 2 has been really good, I hope they get a Season 3.

Suits Season 5 Episode 10 Review: Faith

That did NOT just happened! All I have to say, this episode left me in awe with the writing of this show. I think both Mike's and Harvey's flashback sequences were very fitting. And wasn't it a beautiful analogy, that they both struggled through this season and finally came to the decision to resign from the firm, to save something important to them? Harvey's stepping down was a very crucial moment for him - for a man that doesn't back off, that always said that with a gun to your head, there are many ways out, resigning was the most difficult thing to do, I bet. And he did it to save his family, the firm, Jessica, Louis and everyone else. And it all would be wonderfully bittersweet, with Mike dusting off his bike but it can't be that easy, can it? So the secret is out and I feel Harvey is up for another battle for his family because that's what Mike is.

Well said! Good critique. The plot so far this season has been weak. It's too redundant, with the same scenes recurring with different victims. We have learned very little about the Dread Doctors, the Wild Hunt, or the Desert Wolf. My biggest gripe is the lack of trust / unity within the pack. I dislike using secrets, lies of omission, and poor communication as THE major plot driver, but when it goes on for almost the entire first-half of the season, it smacks of a scripting problem, a fundamental misfire. I hope it improves in March, when the season resumes. This distrust trope could have worked in seasons 1 or 2, but now we are at season 5, and the pack has had years to coalesce. Stiles would have been the first to tell Scott how Donovan died. Scott, who earned the title true alpha, is a true leader, loyal, ferocious, and yet also wise. However, he's been none of those things. He turned his back on Stiles, choosing to believe Theo instead. He's been too stupid to notice the incongruities about Theo, or even to listen for a tell-tale heartbeat. Why didn't he wonder how Theo found the captives so quickly, when he'd been looking for hours? Even his fighting scenes have been lame. Something's wrong with his inhaler and his asthma is growing worse. Stiles, usually sharper than Scott, has recently been too dull to notice the incongruities about Theo, because he's consumed by his own guilty secret. The only redeeming characters are Scott's mom, Liam and Hayden and Parrish and Lydia. Everyone else is keeping secrets from the pack, and for no good reason. Even Malia hides the secret of the Desert Wolf. And Sheriff Stalinski suddenly decided to go by the book, which makes no sense when he knows the supernatural cannot be handled by normal means. I had hoped the good vet Doctor Deeten would return to Beacon Hills, but he's still off stage.
We are learning more about Parrish.

So Molly got to see Barry was right about his brother being a raving maniac. I still think the marriage is over. If it's not then the stuff about him embracing Islam and he Christanity, Delilah were meaning less.
