  1. "Closure Part II" and "Lowdown" are other must-watch ones for me.
  2. Agreed, that's a great ep.
  3. This topic occurred to me because I was just flipping around and "Slaves" from Season 1 (ep 22) was on and I couldn't not watch it, even though I've seen it several times already. The mix of a case that's pretty screwed up, plus the detectives each having to talk to the therapist makes for some great TV. And that scene where they find Elena...chilling. So what episodes do you never tire of watching?
  4. Suspect, regarding a parking stub: You didn't find that in my car, you put it there. Briscoe: I knew those fake parking stubs would come in handy someday.
  5. Spoilers and Spoiler Speculation

    I was afraid he'd get there and find her dead...
  6. S14.E20: Judgment Day

    Actually, when my (then-childless) friend applied to foster, also saying she'd take any age, they called one day and said they had a baby for her, and she had 6 hours to run out and get a crib and other baby stuff, since she didn't have it (she's since adopted her). So it can definitely happen that way. (I mean, otherwise, he'd have to have bed options for any potential age, which isn't realistic.) Honestly, I think it may have been more interesting if he'd been given, say, a teenager. Maybe it wouldn't have the humor value, but would have been more interesting.
  7. S19.E14: Chasing Demons

    Agreed--I think it's really missing something by no longer having Warner (or any other ME) or Huang (or some other psychiatrist). Watching old eps, I see how important of a role they play.
  8. S19.E14: Chasing Demons

    I liked it, too. It really held my interest and had a few twists. Some good acting by the guest stars, too, especially the mother and the brother who ended up killing the doctor. Though it occurs to me that both last episode and this one ended with someone (Barba, Cassidy) telling Olivia how much she meant to him. And Cassidy telling Olivia that she wouldn't have opened up to him, when he clearly didn't open up to her either (after what he told Stone) doesn't make a whole lot of sense. And where was Amanda's kid?
  9. S14.E11: (Don't Fear) the Reaper

    I figure he's maybe supposed to be bipolar or something like that. How maybe he gets in a manic state and is like, "I need to change careers!" Would be interesting if they opted to explore an angle like that...
  10. S19.E12: Info Wars

    Agreed! It bothered me that she seemed to think Barba (sorry, "Rafa") should have still gone through with the prosecution. And the reaction shots of her in the courtroom were more over the top than usual!
  11. S06.E13: By Any Means Part Four

    Not sure how I feel about this. I will say, I feel like way too much time was given to showing loading screens on computers...was expecting to hear a modem dialing in there (yes, showing my age...)
  12. S15.E02: Smile and Say Mise

    We've tried a bunch of the meal boxes, and Blue Apron was one of my least favorite--food showed up warm the one time, and the second time (they gave me credit for it), something was leaking in the box. For value, I think it really depends. Sunbasket is one of my favorites right now, and they use all organic and non-GMO ingredients. Organic food can be quite pricey, so I think it's worth it. Also a big fan of Marley Spoon (which Martha Stewart is involved in) and Home Chef--i subscribe to all three then just pick the one with the menu I like most each week. (Ones we've tried and canceled for various reasons have been Plated, Hello Fresh, Terra's Kitchen, and Green Chef). They've helped us get out of a cooking rut and also eat a bit healthier. What we need to start doing though is use the recipes they've sent us and buy our own ingredients, now that we know we like them. On the topic of the episode, I was also disappointed by how they did the mis en place this season--I like it better when one person is responsible for each item. And I swear, my knife skills at chopping shallots were better than some of them! I was also mystified by the mushroom peeling--sure, if I'm using Portabellas, I'll "degill" them (bottom part), and I'll destem all mushrooms, but no peeling...Just wipe with damp paper towel and rinse briefly.
  13. S06.E07: Conspiracy Theory: Part Two

    Yes, I was fully expecting there to at least be some shots fired at them, the way they were standing out in the open and with the camera shots. Maybe it was supposed to imply that they were being watched? It does seem obvious something will happen to Gus, and then Rusty will feel responsible...
  14. S06.E04: Sanctuary City: Part Four

    Yes, I think that's what the problem is--it's not like we saw the boys with their parents in the first episode. Or that we spent much time with the boys at all to learn their names, so that when they're talking about "Ryan's mom" it's immediately clear who that is. It's like you have to be like, "Wait, which one is Ryan? And which is his mom?" Then...I also have the whole "face blindness" issue, where I have trouble recognizing people/remembering faces. So I tend to have trouble with TV shows/movies (let alone in real life...like if there's 3 blonde waitresses, I can't remember which one is ours, unless I pay superclose attention.) I felt so much better when Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post wrote about having it--I was like, "That's what's wrong with me!"
  15. S06.E03: Sanctuary City: Part Three

    I figured it was just meant to be a red herring regarding the priest...or, I don't know, maybe could turn out to be something with the other (formerly) missing boy?
