I agree that Missy and Clara weren't killed/destroyed in the season opener, but, actually, they've said that Clara is leaving BEFORE the Christmas special.
I tried so hard to watch this, as I thought I would love it as much as GOT or Outlander. I just couldn't get through the episode, however. While I know it was entirely realistic, the extremely poor hygiene and rotting teeth were too much for me. The Baron on the privy while talking, the servant wiping him, Maddox flaying a man.....I just couldn't get past all of those things to appreciate the story-line. Bummer, because I suspect it is very good!
Weird, weird show. I thought I wouldn't even bother watching again, but the end sort of had me interested. A lot of really crass jokes and strangle humor mixed with horror. I don't think I "get" it.
I really liked this episode.When it was over, I could not believe the 30 mins was up.I do wish they resolve the Hayley and Andy story line fast.Dylan's shirts were super funny and I new before he spoke that the V neck was the v in the words. So funny.
I was pretty sure they would not kill off Deacon. However I do admit that for a few seconds I was worried, especially when Rayna said to the girls lets go visit your aunt. I was like NO, she lived and Deacon died. Then I was relieved when we saw Deacon.So Daphne is going to take of the brat role. She is going to put up a fight this season with her mom and Deacon. She was fine when Luke was going to be her step dad but I think the fact that Deacon is Maddie's biological dad, is going to be a huge issue for Daphne.It sure seems like Teddy being in jail is not a big deal to anyone but Daphne.Juliette is just as unlikeable as ever. I really hoped there would be a break through when she called Rayna, but nope she treated Rayna like crap when she showed up.Avery, Gunnar and Will are three men and a baby!I really hoped Will was going to have changed and finally come to terms with everything, but he still does not want people knowing he is gay. I really hope he signs on to Hwy 65, Rayna will encourage him to be himself.So how long is Scarlett going to deny her feeling for Gunnar......probably until he has a new relationship.Now that Layla is on full time I hope she gets a better storyline.
I'm surprised nobody mentioned Steven Tyler on the show. While he still sounds amazing he looks like his face was attacked by a swarm of bees and then the hair club for men gave him mustache/goate plugs.. Did he use the same plastic surgeon Kenny Rogers and Mickey Rourke did? (shudder).
Very true about Steven Tyler. :)
I loved it. They did mention that Frankie was sent back to her previous department. And seeing Jake and Laura partner up. That's Golden! Love the changes. Even love that that the new boss gave Max something more to be than the office Gossip boy! He's actually useful!
That's the one thing I do love about the new captain, she is giving Max more to do which I am ALWAYS game for.
I hope they're not trying write Gibbs out..NCIS without Gibbs won't work. I'm not really thrilled with this direction. I enjoyed the strong in charge Gibbs..sneeking up behind Tony.. This scares me..as long as Gibbs is there I'll watch but my heart will be broken if he wasn't. .I don't think I could bear to watch without him.
I definetly could. Id like a lead agent that isnt so .. Gibbs.
In real life Beckett couldn't be captain and Alexis couln't be a P.I. but this is a tv-show. No mysterie writer would've been aloud to follow a NYPD detective for 7 years either. I do prefer Castle to be a cross between comedy and a crime show. That's when the show is at it's best. The darker episodes aren't that good. The premier was actually quite good for a serious episode.
The best episodes have always been the most dramatic ones, IMO. Far too many times when attempting comedy the writers only make Castle look like a clown and not a very bright clown at that. You never know which version of the character you're going to get. In this episode it's obvious that neither his wife or his daughter have very much respect for him.
IMO the first 3 seasons had some really good funny episodes. The quality of the comedy has dropped after they put Beckett and Castle together. Beckett has been turned into a supercop instead of a great detective she was in the beginning. And Castle has been dumbed down lately. I think some of the darker episodes are done poorley. One episode that was really bad was the one after Beckett was shot where they delt with a sniper. Then Beckett had PTSD for two days. Got drunk, cut herself and Espo fixed her by making her hold a rifle. In those episodes we get to see that both Stana and Nathan have their limits as actors.
I have always found Tony to be a great agent. Even when he is the jokster he still does good work. I think it will be a good change to have Tony more as a leader. I don't get why Palmer can't take over after Ducky. After all he was acting M.E. when Ducky had his heart attack.I did enjoy Jon Cryer more than I thought I would, He was a bit too chatty but I guess that was a way for us to get to know him. But i wouldn't want him to be a regular cast member. If Tony takes over the team, what will Gibbs do? And please make Abbe be more like she was in the first seasons. Strong, confident and sassy. Not a little baby. Even her voice was different back then.I'm not sure how much more I want to see McGee. I do like him but he is the most boring character on the show. I do belive the show is off to a good start this season.
Well I don't want to see more Bishop b/c I think she is the most boring character on the show
McGee last year was really whiny and pouty most of the time; if his character proceeds that way this season, they may as well kill him off.As for Palmer, never cared for the character and would like to see him gone as well. I would rather have Jon Cryer's character take over for Ducky (if David decides to retire) than to have Palmer step in.
"I don't get why Palmer can't take over after Ducky. After all he was acting M.E. when Ducky had his heart attack." My guess is that it was fine as a temporary measure since Ducky was expected to recover. However, the position probably calls for someone who's an MD, and to the best of my knowledge, Palmer isn't one.
Things are changing. Maybe they are getting ready to wrap up this show and it won't be back next year. they may be setting the stage for one big show stopping series finale. Gibbs will finally sail his boat off into the sunset with a pretty redhead by his side. Or something like that. I am guessing the ones that have been there forever may want to try new projects. While David doesn't have that many scenes every week, he probably would like to retire and be free from the daily obligations of filming a 1 hour show.
That has been in my mind too, that this is all leading up to a wrap on the series. Unless I heard it wrong, I believe all of the cast is now on the same contract schedule and I fear that was done with great intention with an eye to the end. I hope I'm wrong.
