  1. S02E05: Say Again Your Last

    Sorry, I don't agree. The reason that Adam isn't coming home is because of a choice that Adam made, and Adam's daughter has to deal with a choice her father made. While I have great respect for the military, I don't come from a military family. If you want to serve in the armed forces and you're physically able, that's your decision. If you want to marry someone in the armed forces, that's also your right as an adult. However, I don't agree with putting that responsibility on your minor children. In my opinion, Emma wasn't pitching a fit. Her mother is already dead. Adam's death, while tragic, was also somewhat of Adam's own choice. By serving in the military these days, people are choosing to take a risk with their own mortality. Emma didn't put that fact on her friend. Adam did. Like Jason said a couple of episodes ago, "it's "supposed" to be that Jason or Adam would be the one to die so that their children are raised by the surviving parent and the military is then out of the equation (because the service member is deceased). Emma and Mikey wanting Jason there after Alana's death is the most realistic thing in the world, and I think to call it "pitching a fit" is assigning an adult sense of nobility to a child. It's unrealistic to me to say that children whose mother had just died and whose father is a SEAL would be thrilled at him returning to duty. Adam's death is not on Emma or Mikey or even Jason, in my opinion, for thinking of his children first, especially when he's now a single parent.

    Yes. but I hated the writing for Emma I mean, I get it, David's the star, the show's called SEAL TEAM, and Jason's gotta get back to the team. That said, Emma was awfully cavalier about speaking for her brother with her "part of you all of the time/all of you part of the time" speech. I know it was supposed to be all noble and all that, and Mikey is young. However, the fact is that Alana is dead and Jason's job is high risk. He is their only parent. If Emma wants to volunteer to potentially become an orphan, that's her business, but I hated how she was volunteering her brother for the same potential fate. "Sure Dad, go and potentially get your butt killed so Mikey and I have no parents. He's A-OK with it. No problem." Ugh!

    Sometimes Alana got on my nerves, but speaking for myself, I would have voted to put Mandy in that casket before I'd choose Alana.
  4. S02.E03: The Worst of Conditions

    David specifically praises her in this interview. SEAL Team's David Boreanaz: Jason's Life Shifts 'Radically' After Tragedy — Plus, a 'Heartbreaking' Scene to Come I also was a big fan of the scene between Mikey and Sonny when Sonny promises Mikey that he won't let anything happen to Jason. Loved the actress who plays Jason's mom. Liked the intro scene between her and Davis. If Jason and Mandy hook up, I'll hurl. Will someone explain to me why Ray couldn't lead the team on the mission? I like Michael Irby and all, but isn't Ray Jason's 2IC for a reason?
  5. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    Along with that, Rebecca was catching some flack for her reaction to Kate's decision. Let's also not forget the manner in which Kate was born. She herself was a triplet, and there is no indication that had anything to do with IVF. Multiple births run in Kate's family anyway. Rebecca also had a complication that resulted in Kyle's death, and Rebecca was not Kate's size. It's been awhile since I've seen the pilot, but wasn't Kevin delivered first, then Kate was delivered (or almost out), and THEN the complication happened? Kate's likely to have a multiple pregnancy because of the IVF, and her mother has a history of complications. Who knows if she'll have a similar problem as Rebecca did, but she might. There could be a family tendency there. This isn't all about the weight, and I think everyone (including the doctor) is blowing by that point. Rebecca lost a child and she wasn't obese. Add Kate's weight issues to the Pearson family history, and no wonder Rebecca reacted as she did. She lived it, and Kate seems to not remember how she came into this world.
  6. S02.E02: Never Say Die

    Given the preview, I think we could be headed for
  7. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    The writing has never been explicit on this, but I've always assumed that Beth had the job, took some time off/worked part-time when the girls were younger, and then returned to full-time status recently (until the point when she was fired).
  8. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    But, on the flip side, why is the assumption always that we're talking about a nanny state and a governmental dictate? I think it would have been interesting to show that some people individually choose not to have children and have put as much thought into it as those who choose to have them. It would have been interesting for Kate and Toby to have considered IVF but decided against it because of the risk. I have three siblings. Only one of us has a child, and those decisions have come about as a result of both circumstance and choice. In the case of circumstance, the result of not having children probably ended up being more positive than if children had been born in that circumstance (and I'm not referring to what I've previously mentioned about myself). My point is there are a ton of IVF stories on TV, and the assumption usually is, "Well, IVF is available! Therefore, why wouldn't you want to take shots and potentially risk your life" (if you were Kate)? I kind of would have liked to see Kate say "You know, biological kids aren't in my future, and I'm OK with that. I have a significant weight issue, and I don't want to take the risk...whether IVF exists or not."

    If anything, I'd think hints were being dropped the other way---that Randall and Chi Chi (or whatever her name is) are going to have if not an affair, then a one-night stand.
  10. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    Normally, I'm not a big fan of William, but I liked him in this episode because of what he said about Beth. I felt badly for her, and I agree with those who would want to read the texts exchanged between The Other Three. The three Kates were great, but I wanted more of them. Maybe it's just me, but I wish Teen Kate would have pushed Adult Kate a bit more. I really like the actress who plays Teen Kate, and I think that if Kate were ever assertive, it was during het teen years. At least that's the way the actress's portrayal of Teen Kate has always come across to me, and I like that. Adult Kate was shown as sort of giving "words of wisdom" to Young Kate and Teen Kate, but I think Teen Kate should have been talking to Adult Kate. Adult Kate is always more of a mess than she isn't.
  11. I was just coming to post about the full-season order. Haven't had a chance to watch Episode 3 yet, but I have to think that the cast is a huge part of the show's success. Unless there's a huge shift between Episodes 2 and 3, the premise is still waaaaaaaaay too unbelievable.

    In terms of Kevin, I think what she was implying was that Kevin will always "play the field" and not want to have children tying him down. That, in her opinion, he would never "mature" that much. At least that's how it came across to me.
  13. S03.E02 A Philadelphia Story

    Where I disagree with you is that I don't think Kate meant it as a "simple" thing. At all. There has been many a time where she has acted as though she owns all grief associated with losing her father. She had the urn with Jack's ashes. We never saw either one of the boys with it. I agree with the poster (but can't find the post) who said that it seems like Kate intentionally shuts out Randall and Kevin when it comes to mourning the loss of Jack. I've also wondered at times if one of the reasons that Rebecca and Kate always clash is because Kate harbors some sort of jealousy toward her mother. Rebecca also (obviously) had a relationship with Jack, but Kate acts like her father-daughter bond is the only one that matters---and to heck with how anyone else interacted with Jack. ETA: Judy, speaking for myself, there is a difference between you and Kate. If you will allow me to cross forums, we both like crime shows. The two of us interact a good bit in various forums. Based on posts, I'd say that you're a thoughtful person more than you're not. My opinion of Kate. on the other hand is she tends to think of herself first and way more often than she thinks of anyone else. In other words, the opposite of you. Thoughtless instead of thoughtful. Her "worldview" starts and ends with her, so while you simply were talking about genetics, I don't think Kate was simply talking about genetics. Kate likes to see things in terms of Kate. and she likes to remind everyone of that (whether she's consciously aware of it or not.) If the writers genuinely want less animosity toward Kate, in my opinion that have to dial her self-absorbed behavior back about five notches. Honestly, it's coming across like it's being blared in stereo.
  14. S02:E02 Middle Ground

    MMV, but I don't think Lea treats Shaun as a curiosity. I don't see Lea as the threat to Shaun that others seem to, and in terms of romance, I think we're not seeing that yet but both are on that path. I'll grant you that Lea's impulsive, but I think she wants to experience life and she wants Shaun to experience life with her. I think someone like Lea, who doesn't see the world in black or white or in absolutes, would be the type of person who would take a chance and have a relationship with someone who has a disability. Yeah, it might not work out, but that's true of any relationship, and there are plenty of people who wouldn't even think about dating Shaun at all. He may get hurt, but that's true of anyone in a relationship. It may be a short-term thing, but I see no evidence that Lea is setting out to intentionally hurt Shaun. She may not get it right all the time, but I think she's trying to figure it out. So is he, which is why I thought what he said to her at the end of the episode was so great. They're both figuring it out, and things may not work out, but it's the experience of life. I don't see the caretaker vibe either. I'm not a fan of Shaun/Claire because I think the "workplace romance" thing is sooo overdone on TV. I know plenty of people date or marry someone they met at work, but it seems like it's mostly what we see on TV. Claire did that with Jared, and it didn't work out. I'd also not like everything on the show to center on the hospital, and Shaun dating Lea expands that circle a bit.

    But it wasn't an off-hand comment, and Kate revealed that she is indeed a superficial person by saying it. Coming from the family that Kate did, it is a shocking thing for her to say because the man that she's supposedly trying to honor wouldn't give a flying fig about what the baby looked like. Jack was the one who always tried to show Kate that her weight didn't define her. That it was who she was as a person. Jack loved Randall whether he was black, white, or purple with polka dots. By being so focused on DNA, Kate has shown she has not learned the essence of who her father really was.
