  1. S01.E09: Lost Love

    I am not in the medical field, but I called the ectopic early on, because I still remember Ralph Bellamy spitting out the words "Ectopic pregnancy!!" and shaking his head in Rosemary's Baby. Seems TV recycles even old ideas... This is why I watch almost everything except news and sports with captions on.
  2. S02.E17: Gag Order

    Thanks @Dowel Jones!
  3. S02.E17: Gag Order

    Once again, either I was dozing or the DVR hiccupped (Curse you, DirecTV). When did Cable appear, and where, at the end?? Thanx in advance!
  4. S03.E11: Folie à Deux

    Thank you @Ailianna!
  5. S03.E11: Folie à Deux

    I accidentally deleted the second half of the episode. Could someone kindly clue me as to outcome of the feuding neighbors? Thanks in advance!
  6. S01.E05: None the Wiser

    Conrad's dad is Aaron Pierce!! 36 years ago William Daniels played the Arrogant Surgeon (not evil, though.) Bruce Greenwood has come to own this type of character like Michael Douglas owns the Evil Businessman. Interesting that Greenwood also played a doctor on St. Elsewhere.
  7. As some of my fellow curmudgeons have said above, I remember and still miss the Jim McKay-style ABC coverage of Olympics. Heck, I remember when there WAS an ABC Sports....
  8. S03.E07: Over Troubled Water

    Turning into? It has been for a while.
  9. S01.E01: Pilot

    A friend is an old-school doctor, and he just laughed at the show. His wife said she lasted just 10 minutes and gave up. I wouldn't be surprised to see Archie Panjabi show up in a limited role, prolly as a hospital administrator.
  10. S06.E13: By Any Means Part Four

    Betsy: You're still watching that show? I gave up on it...meanwhile, back to Major Crimes, this episode felt somewhat anticlimactic after all the hoopla and buildup. It's another example of the downside to the current trend of the overarching "Big Bad" that so many shows use. Now TNT has more bandwidth to try to appeal to the hipsters. Get off my lawn, TNT!! All you posters who are geezers like me, come to my table and we'll hoist a glass to Sharon Raydor.
  11. S02.E10: Line of Fire

    Mrs. Torqy and I use the verb "to Reese someone" after John Reese on Person of Interest, who was always T-boning people with medium-duty trucks. Immediately thought of Jehovah Witnesses regarding Kristoffer Polaha's group. They seem to like our 'hood; there are usually 3 or 4 professionally dressed women making the rounds. They must have gotten a burn notice on us as they haven't rung our doorbell in a few years.
  12. S06.E12: By Any Means Part Three

    I think I will miss Flynn and Provenza the most, and their once-or-twice a season "funny" episodes. Stroh will prolly be killed by HackerBoy or Rusty. Just a hunch. Funny, for a show that supposedly appeals to the "wrong" demo, there is certainly a lot of buzz on the 'Net...(at 67, I'm way outside The Demo)
  13. S06.E07: Conspiracy Theory: Part Two

    When did Reiko Aylesworth become typecast as a therapist?
  14. S06.E02: Sanctuary City: Part Two

    @sjohnson: Thanks for the explanation. Fortunately I'm well-managed and have had few complications.
  15. S06.E02: Sanctuary City: Part Two

    Interesting. I'm a Type 2 (would that be a "Type B?") and when initially diagnosed, my glucose was 500...I felt fine. Someone above commented that the show seems to come to a halt when Rusty shows up. Agreed. Mrs. Torqy, seeing that he would be in this epi, asked "with all this stuff going on how are they going to cram more of him in here?" I'll go out on a limb and say the vanishing priest and racist neighbor are both red herrings.
