    He was absolutely a plant - they showed the slice along his palm. The kid Galindo "swore in" must have read in the rest of his kiddie crew.

    Except she didn't ask Joy to eavesdrop. She didn't enlist Joy to do anything. She was getting up to get the coffee when Joy interjected and said she'd go and then decided to hit record when she overheard some of their conversation. Granted, one could argue that Samantha manipulated her into doing what she did, but I honestly didn't see it that way. And, sure, I might've been mad were it my kid that she involved in something shady - but if I asked her to get involved, it's my own damned fault. I might tell her I was disappointed in the choices she made, thank her for her time and take the rest up with my kid. Just sayin'. The mudding plot was stupid. The Harvey plot wasn't terrible. I hate Katheryn Heigl and want her to get off my TV screen.

    I'm so thankful this awful show is over. Just ew.
  4. S08.E01: Right-Hand Man

    Based on what I've read about her, Katherine Heigl is a not-so-great-person and based on what I've seen her in, she's a terrible actress. Her character in this show is awful and I just want her to go away. Quickly. I was also very disappointed in how Harvey was written in this episode. This. I can't understand how Harvey, who's all about *loyalty*, would go back on his word, literally, less than 24-hours later. I get that he's competitive. I get that he wants to win, but he gave his word not only to Alex but also to Zane. I feel like this about-face was completely out of character and it sucked.

    I'm talking about after they were free. Monty figured out how to use his fungus to grow real food and Octavia burned it all to the ground. If you could excuse everything she did to survive down in the bunker all that time, I might be able to agree with you - but once she took away their choice to stay peacefully and eat the Monty-grown goodies or fight for the valley, she appeared much less redeemable, to me. At this point, everyone should be relieved just to be outside, out of the bunker. They could use the debris to rebuild and use the bunker-farm to sustain... and maybe trade with the valley people or eventually make peace with them. Instead, she burned it all to the ground because she wanted to get her way - even if her way destroys the valley and/or kills half her people. Selfish and stupid.

    None of this makes any sense. Sure the people who choose to starve would starve slowly and it would be awful... but hell, maybe they'd last the year. And even if they didn't, "healthy" protein-eating people would still commit crimes, would still go into the pits and would still "give themselves for all". I don't understand why Abby insisted Octavia force them to eat (other than plot). And if Abby remembers the horror of watching her friends slowly starve, surely Kane remembers it too - and he's still choosing not to eat. Stupid stupid stupid. And the triple backstabs are getting old. Why, oh why, couldn't Octavia allow Wonkru to subsist on fungus? At least they're outside! They should be thrilled to be outside and have an unlimited (albeit tasteless) food option. I really like this show, but some of the plot stupidity just pulls me right out of the story. I wish Abby died. The end.

    RE: S3 Ep 11 The Art of War I also came here to post about the ridiculous idea that "The Art of War" was some ancient text that no one had ever studied, simply read or even ever heard of. I also wanted to laugh about how someone obviously had time to buy and arrange new throw pillows after the hail of bullets. And how when you, as an agent, hear people yelling from inside a shipping container, the initial response would be to hurry and open the container - not to bang a few more times yelling "Maise? Maise is that you?" What if they answered, "No, sorry, there's no Maise here"? Would you have moved on? Then, on Owen's "no hospitals" conversation - if the covert hospital was option, why couldn't they go there immediately instead of having Deep operate in the loft? Speaking of Deep, why is he back? Didn't he basically make a dramatic and nasty exit. The quickness with which he jumped back into the fold was RIDICULOUS. This show. It's so bad. I can't stop watching. And I hate myself for it.
  8. I enjoyed it. I loved BushMaster and I, too, found myself rooting for him. I enjoyed how the Iron Fist episode made everything feel more lighthearted. You can get really dragged down with all the torture, violence and gore. I felt like there was more joking and self deprecation with Danny around. I found it fun and a bit of a breather. I like how DW has kind of become Cage's conscience... through it all, he balanced Luke. When Luke was getting too cocky, DeeDub reminded him of his BushMaster beatdown. And when he went all CrimeBoss, DeeDub told him the truth. Too bad Luke didn't listen. I won't miss Mariah and I sure as hell won't miss Mariah kissing Shades. Ewwwwww.
  9. S02.E10: The Passenger

    That's the point. He was "coded" -- just as a human is "coded" to make the same choice every time. Not *intentionally* coded, but due to his moral rules, temperament, preferences and circumstance, he would ALWAYS make the same choice.... because humans are predictable and pathetic. We are, after all, only 10,000 some-odd lines of code.
  10. S02.E10: The Passenger

    For those questioning why Dolores made Bernard to be her 'foil' when she could just pursue her goal on her own - I think the point was being made that the hosts are *better* than humans because they're not only thinking of themselves or their personal survival; she was looking at the bigger picture and knew she needed someone on the opposite end to create balance and save their kind. Now, here's my question: Why did Sizemore need to die? He had distracted the security team. He served his purpose. He could've continued to distract them by dropping the gun and dancing around and fighting and struggling... how did his death serve any other purpose than to prove he was redeemed? Thought it was pretty gutsy to jump out shooting in the first place. Thought it was pretty awesome that he saved his host-friends all on its own. Why did he have to die? Seemed a little over-the-top and unnecessary to me... but then again, I guess a lot of this show has been over-the-top and unnecessary. Shut up and die Charlotte.
  11. S03.E02: Episode 2

    I think the bigger concern is that now that synths have free will, many (if not most) humans believe them to be very, very dangerous. If your microwave had the ability to kill you at any moment and the free will to do so, many people wouldn't want a microwave in their homes. Synths are faster, stronger and have terabytes? worth of memory. We have to imagine many of these synths were likely "mistreated" when compared to their human counterparts... Some might hold a grudge. All would have potentially damaging information about their human owners. Humans have no idea how or what they're thinking. They're a malfunctioning, deadly, piece of machinery with the ability to explode a person's life with one wrong sentence about something they witnessed; why would anyone choose to hire/work with/have inside their home or business something so potentially dangerous?
  12. S03.E02: Episode 2

    The synths can't hide among humans because other synths recognize them... and apparently, the police and military have trackers that show when synths are nearby. There's no way to hide the electrical signal they put out. They're in a no-win situation. Even if they tried to assimilate, humans are scared of them - and, as we saw - will beat them to death in the streets. If they fight back, there will be more and more headlines that read, "Synth injures 5 more humans in street brawl" or somesuch. Their only hope is a multimillion dollar ad campaign or reality show featuring "the human side" of green-eyed synths. But yeah, I don't see that happening.
  13. S04.E13: And He Shall Be a Good Man

    I liked it. It felt a bit like a reset. Chase is gone. Levon is gone. The zombie horde is gone. Blaine is back to being a dealer. Liv and Major are both relationship-free and zombie. Peyton & Ravi is my OTP. I feel like this cleaned a lot of things up. And no matter how flawed Major is, I still love him. Especially if and when he takes his shirt off. I am disappointed that the cure required the ENTIRE BRAIN - not sure how that made sense, but plot. I'd like to think that instead of the government being so concerned about walls and weapons and brain supplies - they'd be more concerned with finding/creating/testing a cure. It doesn't make sense that Ravi isn't working with a lab on the outside. You'd think that would priority one. *shrug* I still enjoy the jokes. The "police brain" episode made me laugh out loud -- multiple times -- and upon rewind/rewatch, when Liv mimicked CSI Miami with the quip and sunglasses and then Det. Cavanaugh stubbed his toe just in time for the "Aaaawwwwwhhhhhhh"... perfection! <3
  14. S04.E12: You've Got to Hide Your Liv Away

    It's still suicide. Suicide by righteousness, but still suicide. She knows the only thing waiting for her once she turns herself in is a heavy anvil on a string. And, honestly, by "proving" she's Renegade, she ended up throwing a bunch of other people under the bus (or anvil, as the case may be). Everyone involved in the smuggling business made a choice and knew what they were getting themselves into. Everyone involved should also know that Liv is more important to continuing the cause than they are - and most would have been willing to stand in her place in order to keep the railroad running. If anything, Liv's moral high ground put more people in danger and ultimately ended the thing they were so desperate to support. I'm not suggesting Major isn't without his flaws, but he was just trying to save Liv from herself.

    You're the very bestest.
