They really upped their game this season, after that lackluster S04 finish. This one was a prefect follow up to the premier. I fairly enjoyed Stiles and Dylan working together, surprisingly great chemistry. The actress playing Tracy really nailed it. Great addition. Lets see how the story around her will unfold.
I'm pretty sure a record of Holly's theivery and light fingers is what she left behind in Ohio.
More stereotypical, "kill the token black guy for suspense" bs. Maybe he comes back as a wolf but I'm not holding my breath. The more things supposedly change for everyone else in Hollywood, the more they actually stay the same for minority characters.
Same thoughts here. Well, it's a show placed on Victorian London, with classical literature characters (which are mainly white rich men)... there's not many ways to fit minorities in it. So they just threw a black character there, without much meaning, and they just simply don't know what to do with him. Even the way Sembene was developed was the old hollywood cliche: the charismatic supporting character, who gives wise advices (when it's not a comical character), but sacrifices himself to save the life of the white protagonist (because, you know, this is the one who actually matters).
Don't really feel like watching the episode - just caught the end - what happened? What was the real intent of the Stitchers program?
We do not yet know the REAL intent of the program. f I had to take a wild guess, I would say they are aiming at a way to stitch someone who is still alive (ie: something like mind reading/telepathy). It would make an interrogation technique,
I like the foreshadowing for the future Scott wants to be a vetrinarian to heal others, Lydia clearly wants to follow her mother to help people with issues, and if Stiles isnt a cop at the very least a deputy ill eat my hat.
Agreed. I'm thinking Detective Stilinski is in Stiles' future.
Great review. Really insightful and revealing. You reiterated some things about Scott and stiles characters. Your laws of teen wolf were correct and your analyzing of the characters and their circumstances were soot. Really great
Thank you so much!!!
Are Jane, Maura and Angela living together on a permanent basis? I just didn't buy that Jane was really that mopey about her mom doing something without her, as she's always complaining about how her mother is way too involved in her life. Oh well.
There's a different writer for every episode. Continuity? Not so much. Fans are still wondering what happened to Jane's beloved dog, Jo Friday.
Wasn't the point of Scott listing all those people Stiles distrusted (Kira, Liam etc) was to show that Stiles is more often than not wrong? Because Scott gave them the benefit of the doubt they've proven to be allies and friends. If Stiles had had his way it would have just been Scott and Stiles cut off from everyone in Stiles paranoid bubble.
Huh. Did Stiles distrust Kira, Derek and Liam? Maybe Derek, but I don't remember distrust with Liam or Kira. Even if he didn't trust them immediately, I think Scott was using those examples as times Stiles gave people the benefit of the doubt.Whereas Stiles never trusted Peter. But I can see how someone might take it another way. I don't think Stiles is paranoid and I don't think he wants to keep Scott in some bubble all to himself. He was ultimately supportive of Scott's relationship with Allison, Derek, Isaac and Kira. Stiles is protective over Scott and understandably so. But more often than not, Stiles is right. And he's right about Theo. He's not to be trusted. Just like Pete Hale wasn't to be trusted.
I agree with you. That was my take as well particularly Derek and Liam in this case.
What the hell was that trial? It was down right laughable. The idea that the lawyer and Elizabeth were both nodding their heads in agreement at the likelihood that Lori could be set free was laughable. This woman drugged Carter and held her family at gun point! Elizabeth is a police officer. People get shot for jay walking now a days. Madison was a terrible character. From start to finish she added absolutely nothing to the story. She was a completely un-compelling character and the writers seem to agree as she's being written off. I will say the writers are confused about what to do for 90 percent of the cast. I don't think they have any idea about how they want their characters to evolve. Gabe got lost for a while and then sort of came back as a character that no longer felt connected to either sister. Having him have that affair with his guidance counselor only to get caught and end it was ridiculous. The whole thing happened way too fast and it really left me wondering why they bothered with it in the first place. Lastly I will say that as much as I dislike how ridiculous the Lori storyline has gone it is the only thing keeping this show afloat. They have literally developed no other story lines so dropping it would be unwise at the moment. Also, No MORE CRASH. Get rid of him for good. He should never have been allowed back. Ever! His character is awful and I can't for the life of me understand why they haven't given Carter a better love interest.
I know that when a book is adapted to a movie or miniseries, some things need to be left out or changed a little.But in this very first episode, there isn't much that resembles the book. And I really hate that.They are even adding characters that weren't in the book.They took a good book, and turned it into a bad miniseries. Same as they did with Under the Dome.
