  1. 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.

    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.

    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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  9. S04.E12: You've Got to Hide Your Liv Away

    But then who was the supposedly happy couple in the basement? I thought the point was that it was supposed to be THEIR brains... *shrug*
  10. S04.E12: You've Got to Hide Your Liv Away

    I'm confused about whose brains they ate if the happy couple was zombiefied in their own basement.
  11. S02.E03: Virtù e Fortuna

    I know it's been said before, but it bears repeating. Charlotte is too young to have *been there, done that*. When she took the gun and put on her vest like it was old hat I just wanted to know when she had the time to go through SEAL training in between hacker school, college degree(s) and enough time to climb the corporate ladder to attain her position. Why couldn't she be a sexy older woman who actually personifies the boss she's trying desperately to be.
  12. S01.E08: Trust Your Instincts

    While hokey, I think the point was to show us that not only have they weaponized the virus, but that the area that was infected was probably a testing ground. In that short scene, we learned that those guys have the capabilities to control the clouds - which means they can infect the rain and have it rain down anywhere at any time. Perhaps the dad was originally creating the virus to help people, but then Apollon weaponized it. We saw in the flashbacks that the dad was trying to *cure* his son of something that would have otherwise killed him. Apparently, that was the origination of this virus. The test area was probably to see how long it took for the population to die - perhaps how long it took for the virus to clear out of the infected clouds and to see if anyone had natural immunity. I have to assume it's just this "small" area that was infected and, as of this moment, the rest of the world is fine. But once infected people start escaping... well, then there's no telling where they'll go with this story. I believe Rasmus had the blood on his head before the soldier kissed him - and I think it was unrelated to anything. I believe Rasmus became contagious when he injected himself with the virus. He's both the carrier and the cure.
  13. S01.E08: Trust Your Instincts

    So are we supposed to believe Beatrice died because of the rain or because Rasmus infected her?
  14. S14.E22: Fight for Your Mind

    For me, Teresa will always Amber from Dodgeball. "Good luck to you, making your judgments." From my point of view, Cerone wasn't *punishing* Meredith because of Ellis, she was *extorting* Meredith to get her name put on the method her name should have been on in the first place. It wasn't punishment for the sake of punishment, it was basically, "I won't give you the polymer you need unless you put my name on the method I created with your mother." So, yeah, it was shitty - but not quite as shitty as some are making it out to be. Roy was/is a smug little jerk and he specifically lied about something dangerous and put the hospital and his patients at risk. At any other hospital, his actions would have been just cause for firing. But since many other surgeons at Grey-Sloan have survived worse and turned into pretty good surgeons, I think Bailey may have realized Richard shouldn't have fired him. Still, he didn't deserve an apology. I think her Bailey-esque lecture was pretty spot on and fair to everyone. I want Alex to have a happily-ever-after. That is all.
  15. S02.E02: Reunion

    I worry that if anyone really and truly follows and understands what's going on, there would be a gajillion plot holes to fill. Thankfully, the fact that this show is confusing as all hell makes it hard to poke holes in the story writing. At this point anyone can be anything and any question can have any answer. I can't decide if that 'freedom' is a good thing or bad.
