    12 months PPD for you!
  2. S04.E09: Wiedersehen

    While another person's motivations can never be truly known, their behavior must still be consistent, whether or not we fully understand it. I think most of the BCS audience could predict that Jimmy wouldn't cite Chuck as his inspiration for pursuing law, either in his hearing before the review board or anywhere else. We could predict it because it's consistent with his character. But we certainly do often disagree, sometimes vociferously, about why Jimmy wouldn't invoke Chuck's name. That's why this scene was credible to me. It was consistent with Jimmy's character, even if it leads to disagreements about what motivated it, or whether or not he's conscious of his own motivations.

    What I can't predict is how Mesa Verde/Kevin will react when they suddenly learn that the plans have been altered, and with no delay or bureaucratic process involved. What did Kim think Mesa Verde would do?

    I suspect we may get a callback to BCS, where Jesse was held as a slave/prisoner and forced to cook. Gus needs Werner to finish the lab, and so it must be.
  5. S15, E4 The Blind Auditions, Part 4

    That was an outstanding performance, one of the best I've seen on the show. I was excited to search out her videos on youtube, which go back many years. Unfortunately, from listening to many of them, she's not a great singer...mediocre at best in my opinion. It was disappointing. It'll be interesting to see how far she can get on the show with exceptional performing skills without the exceptional vocal skills to back it up.
  6. Wow. Maybe a lot of the voters sensed something a little "off" in Kettering's presentation. I thought it was pretty clear during the finale results that he was not the saint Simon was so desperate to sell. He went from a smug expression when the camera panned the faces of the final 5 to such a shocked expression when he was eliminated in 5th place. It looked like it had never even occurred to him that he might not win this thing. I'm hoping someone will make a gif meme of that 15 seconds or so, because it was a classic.
  7. Noooo! They're going to bring back Michael, Courtney, and Vicki, aren't they? I just know it, and I'm overcome with dread.
  8. And singers in the finale who aren't good enough to make it through American Idol or The Voice audition rounds. The only thing that would've made this finale better for me would be if Kettering didn't make the Top 5. But seeing his utterly shocked face was almost worth it. Top 4 consisting of a magician, a dance group, a violinist and a comedian could bode well for the future of the AGT show that began its life as a variety show, and not as a bad singing and competing sob stories show. Congratulations, Shin Lim, you are a pleasure to watch. Thank you, America, for doing such a great job with your finale votes and for sparing me from the expected nightmare top 2 of Kettering and Hadwin. Bravo.
  9. I agree with almost all of your very well-written analysis. Personally, I would swap your #4 (Comroe) and your #5 (Duo Transcend), but that's a minor disagreement. By all rights, Shin Lim should easily win this thing. But I've learned never to underestimate the, um, peculiarities of the voting demographic, (or the underhanded producer manipulations), for any of these TV talent competitions. With that caveat, Simon may actually get his mediocre children's choir winner.

    So much this.

    Maybe he puts it in Anita's bank out of some lingering love, loyalty or affection for Anita, which we're just now learning more about. Rather than sloppiness or a simple error, both of which are uncharacteristic of Mike, it could have been an error of the heart...a characteristic that is consistent with Mike.
  12. S04.E10: Close Your Eyes

    For me, this episode was so bad it was just bad. Given one unlikable character you wish was dead (Charlie) and twice the monologuing (long scenes of Alicia talking talking talking to the door), and it was almost exactly like the mothership show with all its flaws. I had it even worse than the lot of you who were able to identify that the object in the fireplace was a dead animal, or maybe even a bird. My viewing partner had no idea what it was. Honestly, I thought it was Charlie's coat, as it occurred immediately after Alicia kept yelling at Charlie to give her her coat. I wish it had been. At least that would have made Alicia a little more interesting, knowing she would take the little brother-murdering psychopath's coat away from her and burn it. Needless to say, thinking the object was Charlie's coat, I had no idea it had anything to do with Alicia's fiddling with the fireplace, or that the former occupants had died of asphyixiation, or that it was any kind of callback to Madison's story of her children saving a bird. I was so distracted by the failed plot logic that a walker falling from a tree would cause a freaking chain to break on the cellar door, I could barely muster a pissed off feeling when Charlie said, "He saved us!" So disappointing! I wanted the Dorie and Drunk Strand roadtrip with double the flying zombies.
  13. From Fear The Spoiling Dead Fans facebook page, detailed spoilers for episode S4 E10 "Close Your Eyes" Oh, great (not). A whole episode of nobody but Charlie, whom I wish would look at the flowers, and Alicia, my least favorite of the cast. Not excited.
  14. S02.E12: Duels 4

    Agree with all of this ^^^^ The judges claim to be looking for something new and fresh, then eliminate Morning of Owl, right after saying they had original self-created and never-before-seen moves? Plus, the group performed a ridiculously amazing routine and did it flawlessly. That may have been one of my favorite routines on the show to this point. I'm actually angry about being deprived of seeing more performances from Morning of Owl, and I usually don't get that invested in these shows. I also thought Brotherhood kicked Embodiment's asses.
  15. Spoilers and Speculation

    Grimm, Sleepy Hollow, and Person of Interest all got cancelled for the same reasons. I'm sure there are others, but maybe not ones I watched. It makes me wonder if all these showrunners regularly attend the same tweaker parties.
