Agreed! Awesome, real peril, back story, and "seeing is believing" being the "fooled ya" moment, but also the great humor with Fusco in "meanwhile back at the ranch" BWHAHA and even heroism with a surprise for him. Wonderful. Of course, the head of the five families appearing seemed to be the big threat and turned into something quite else. I think Carter, a working mom keeping her balance and a clear eye on "crossing lines," and has been underrated so far. She really has something to lose: her child.
Looove THIS SHOW! I wish they had kept this kind of rhythm and writing with Angel's first couple of seasons, even with the case of the week format. Every character introduced is offering so much importance in the life of the main protagonists, and yet having enough breath to make them more than plot points, but make you think they each could have a worthy story on their own and turn the entire story on a dime to tragedy or inspired salvation. I really like seeing why the notion of ammends and never quite getting redemption is reality(except the "sympathy for the devil" kinds fandom and writers are entitled to), and maybe that is why mercy extended to another is so important, one for another.
I also think the notion of privacy and the nature of fear that has taken all privacy away, is an important question: the very premise of "our genius in residence" Harold. I am glad he takes good care of the dog and they show it; pets do take care of us, especially to appreciate the nature of trust, another important dynamic in this show. I coulda missed out, but for you, Lewis! Thanks! Yes, I will be buying it and start all over viewing it.
Anybody like the new Sherlock and Lucy-as-Watson show? Again, I don't see where this one can go, as we already are into the big lost love Sherlock faced with Moriarty introduced as the big bad threading through the case of the week. I guess this is patterned after "all of them" nowadays, e.g. Mentalist, Bones, and the L&O franchise. I'll watch it for a "House" type of fix, but I doubt it will make 5 years, other than to watch Sherlock fail in relationships and his apartment become a "landfill."
How do you call that one?
Anyone like the fairytales? Grimm--I think the wolf has the only power to me; and Once Upon a Time--let's kill Prince Charming and all will be well on that show; even Henry is less annoying for his deep faith in "things working out" and the guide within fairy tales, which is actually an important reality in why they help us grow up--why I liked Joss's, in fact. Kids need the space to view life as awful, parents as "strangers," or even do awful things or feel they were totally picked on and yet find these helpers to make their way through the pressures of growing up.
Maybe it's my age, but I don't care about "Bones," despite David actually being the most popular guy on TV and Nathan Fillion being second. Nathan's show, Castle, has some fun thrown at it, in complicating the only obvious point of the cop and Castle "happily ever after" wedding/romance from my view.
I do hope you all come back and talk about whatever is going on with you, or your interests.
Have any of you watched HBO "Girls?" It really isn't Sex and the City; they all are really trying to find themselves and "characteristics" blur more. It's not totally my thing, as I think "Shameless" is more fun for me, in the "soap" category. Yeah, I Netflix "Homeless"
I am a fan of "American Horror" as Tim Minear is behind it and I happen to love, love madly Jessica Lange. I can't think of anything she did horribly. "Crimes of the Heart" is a film she is never given credit in her bio, as it was a Sissy Spacek film, but she was riveting in that one, too.
My daughter is blond and brown eyed so I guess that catches my eye.
Great grand! Indeed! I think that must feel like watching the universe renew itself with convincing proof of beauty and hope. I hope you get your wish, Salty!
