  1. S04.E06: Blood of My Blood

    I was shocked that John Grey didn’t die given Claire’s body count and that it’d be a quick and dirty way to give Claire and Jamie another family member with a cloud of drama swirling around him. Both Roger and Bree HAVE to go through the stones. The whole story has been pointing that way. The weird cairn stones in the opening with the Native-ish looking people dancing seems like a way that they’ll soon be able to commute between centuries without leaving the new world. The mountain calls them etc.

    Not really. It seemed like the set up for something. A snake is like Chekov’s Gun. If you put it on the table you have to use it. The wigs look like they’re made of straw.

    I don't understand why they showed someone throwing a milk snake out of the outhouse in the beginning of the episode? Or was that supposed to be a coral snake (which doesn't occur in the NC mountains). Was it supposed to be a demonstration of the potential dangers out in the wilderness? Kind of a meh episode. Willie was a poncy little brat, which I suspect he was supposed to be so that we see he's growing up to be a part of Grey's world and not Jamie's. Was that a wig on the child actor? Good grief, his hair looked like a wig that comes with a cheap Halloween costume. Grey and Claire both eyeing each other and sparring as Jamie's competing love interests was painfully bad. Why did Claire, Jamie, and Murtagh have to sleep outside so that Grey and Willie could have the house? Some kind of class thing? Couldn't they have pulled the table to the side and set up sleeping spots on the floor near the fire? Maybe it was the writer's device to get people away from each other so they could talk. Seemed weird, especially on the egalitarian frontier. Not very chivalrous either. It seems like this season is building up to an uprising against the Governor over taxes with Jamie somehow straddling the line between the two sides. The best thing this season thus far is the return of Murtagh.

    True, but you have to think about who is reading what you're writing. I'd always say line when I'm around boat people. In a general audience I might use the word rope since it would more directly bring to their minds what I mean. Similarly, if I say that I'm going out on a cruise, people immediately think pina coladas. So, with a general audience I make sure to say research cruise.

  6. Season 5 Discussion: Got Nose?

    I'm still watching. I wish they wouldn't put the plastic surgery addicts on the show like Pixie. If they insist on showing people like her, it should involve a series of visits to a therapist.

    Is Vance the biggest loser on the show thus far? I mean, that's a tight competition on Catfish, but he has to at least be in the top five.

    He reminds me of the guy at a party who just got back from India or Nepal, is wearing jewelry from the place, and tells you all about his spiritual journey and impresses his favorite audience, himself.

    Any rope pulling outward is dangerous, even if it's tied at both ends. I was working at a railing and didn't see someone walk behind me and throw something overboard. The rope ended up across the back of my thighs and pinned me to the railing rather than taking me overboard, thank god. The captain saw it and stopped the engines. We had a little chat with the new person. I had huge bruises, but thankfully nothing broken.

    I think all deck hands are pretty much newbies, including some of the bosuns we've seen. Toward the end of each season, they can usually drop and retrieve the anchor, as well as put out bumpers bring the boat in and out of slips. They don't do much else in terms of boats, other than clean and put out toys. I was trying to think if that was the first time we've seen them try to tow something. Or were they dropping an anchor for the runabout? It was hard to tell. Either way, we haven't seen them doing much with ropes when the boat was picking up speed. I think this was inexperience and chaos rather than exhaustion. Did you see where they had a rope around one of the bumpers? Really sloppy stuff.

    Watch the very end. As other folks are dithering, she’s dropping her radio to go in after him.

    I think they chose from among the available camera angles to make sure we couldn't guess. I work on ships and boats of various sizes. The FIRST THING you learn when deploying something overboard is to keep your feet firmly planted on the deck and shuffle your feet so you can't step into the middle of a turn of rope. It's the kind of thing that happens when people get really tired and sloppy. The rope moves quickly and can cut you faster and deeper than you'd ever imagine.

    Good point. I thought that might be related to the upcoming fire, but it could be related to a few things.

    I was really happy to see Murtaugh, too. He was a voice of reason and the source of a good bit of humor, something this season could really use. You KNEW that Adawehi was going to die. Claire has been like the Grim Reaper on this show. Where she goes, death and suffering follow. Sometimes due to her actions, sometimes not.

    I'm on the "Why not both?" bandwagon. He sucked at being a boatswain. She's got a chip on her shoulder the size of a boulder.
