  1. I want to LOVE this show. In fact, I'm almost defensive of the criticisms- valid as they may be- because of how much I want a show like this to succeed. I'm hanging in there for the long haul- the only thing that might be insurmountable is- as others have mentioned- the half-hour format. If tPtB could innovate how serial/MotW plotting can work in this format, the show could be stellar. If the team continues to rely on the old paradigm- it's doomed.
  2. I wish that the FOX owned Marvel could start to interact with the MCU proper (a la S:H). A nod or two to the incident in New York, the Sokovia accords, Infinity Stones, StarLord, Pym Industries, etc. etc. I sincerely doubt I'll get my wish considering there are hordes of attorneys waiting and watching for any infringement of intellectual property, but a girl can dream.
  3. Enjoyed last week; looking forward to tonight. But I'm so, so sad that my genre shows are now also ALL receiving the moniker "Family Drama." Ugh. If I wanted to watch "This is Us," I would.
  4. First thoughts... In his X# of days in the desert... Is he... him? Or the Other Guy? If he were there with a couple thousand other people, I'd probably go to Charleton Heston, Mt. Sinai and stone tablets.
  5. I am skeptical too, however, this is a May that let the girl live- then- the girl turned around and killed hordes of people. I can see that Framework!May would have felt responsible for anyone hurt by the girl she allowed to live. Consequently, May would have turned off anything that ever tried to show mercy or compassion lest it turn around and bite her in the ass again.
  6. Fun and heartbreaking episode! Poor Clive. He's lost a lot, sacrificing for his work. Did the timeline mentioned at the end mean that Wally, Anna, and her brother (brother right) were infected at the beginning of the outbreak? Were they somehow part of ground zero at the lake party? Or was there some other chain of transmission?
  7. And have we even glimpsed what regret- or even if there was a regret- was removed from Fitz? *A*IDA insists that the regret removed is what drove the Framework creation; was it only Melinda's regret at Bahrain or does each soul entering come in free of whatever previously hindered? I hope they act consistently with this- cause it looks like Mack is in there sans regret too. If everybody gets to be primary regret free, I'd like to know what the pivot point was for Coulson, Mace, and Fitz.
  8. *sniff* UGH! Too much angst! Though I believe- at this point- Jemma will be able to fully forgive Fitz, if/when they're rescued, I don't think Fitz will forgive Fitz. Then again, the Fitz that comes back might not be looking for forgiveness. :( Same with May-- will the May that steps out of the Framework even want to be the person she was before. And what will happen to the Framework? Not everything in there is a brainwave capture, but who knows how much of it- of the persons in it- qualify as sentient souls? Will Daisy, Jemma, Coulson, and Mack be responsible for killing a noble Ward? Or Hope? UGH! I'm ready for AIDA to be throat punched immediately. AAAAAAAIDA. AIDA. AIDA AIDA AIDA. How dare you use your angst and the giant ARTIFICIAL chip on your shoulder to ruin the world. Selfish brat. Pbbbtttzzs. Poor Holden and Agnes. :( Does anyone know if the Darkhold is still playing a role in what's happening? Or did it just start AIDAs evil ball rolling?
  9. The Berlanti team addresses the ramifications of Thawne's eeevol high jinks in another show...
  10. That was fun! The pace was swift, action interesting, and I did squee (and -ee and -ee) when n'kid Hayley and Elijah got a tender moment. A little off with the blah blah blah Marcel's in charge and no one should question/challenge him blah blah blah. Crazy Klaus was good though redundant- more blah blah blah you need me because everyone who has ever has feared me and that's the only way to keep people from taking what's yours blah blah blah. And... I'm already tired of Freya being willing to screw anyone and everyone for a quick resolution to Michelson angst. Yes Freya, we understand the nice werewolf made a deal with Hayley, not you so she should just suck it. Sheesh.
  11. Couple o' things: 1. (tags just in case) 2. My thoughts, when introduced to the massive psychic energy that might destroy the hell dimension, went immediately to the twins. Baby girls are the most powerful beings around. Not to be gross, but Bonnie's shot her psychic wad- so to speak- on her own grief driven dimensional creation. 3. Did anyone not know the cameo was from Katherine? Heh. Cameo- heh. Nicely played production team. 4. Kudos to previous posters who noted that this is the umpteenth ridiculous hero plan to- wonder of wonders- go crazy wrong. 5. Is there anyone other than Katherine we'd like to see but haven't in the last three episodes? In the TVD universe, it's interesting that they've quarantined the Originals in their own psychic dimension while TVD finishes. Other than Michelsons, I think everyone's mostly wrapped? Yes? Oh Wait- where's Steven R McQueen?
  12. I wondered if they'd all been replaced- FitzSimmons included. If the command pertaining to the LMD detector was deleted upon execution (is that even a thing? Or is it convenient plot tech?), then any of them could have executed then not known that they executed. Simmons was late to get to AIDA [I had a REALLY hard time making out most of the dialogue due to my husband's snores- did Fitz and Simmons tease the poor red shirt that Fitz sent with her to find AIDA- the evil murdering android?] and though she was with someone, it really doesn't mean much. Neither does her discovery that there are additional LMDs- self awareness as an LMD is hard to come by and being a replacement is dependent on complete immersion, so, depending on what Radcliffe has planned for SHIELD to accomplish, Simmons could discover an army of LMDs and still- unknowingly-be one herself. Maybe snores covered up missing something that would exclude LFitzSimmonsMDs? If so, please let me know! I really don't want to do more are they or aren't they with those two.
  13. Even with all the nonsense, this one had feels. Feels with tears. I do have sympathy for Damon. For the entire run, he's really been pretty pathetic. He's been the martyr eschewing his role as martyr- in Damon's mind, he's the only one that can get things done. He's the only one that can do the dirty work. He's the only one that should suffer the consequences. He's the bad guy that will do the bad guy stuff that needs doing so that everyone else can remain alive, free, whole, clean, Etc. I'm glad that the character might get to experience the freedom and relief of accepting that he's not in, will never be in control. He didn't have control over becoming what he is. But now, he can act in a way that isn't because he's supposed to be the monster. Cool. Caroline needed to throw that ring farther. Gah. The sirens should have smoldered to death 5 episodes ago. Someday, when I'm feeling nostalgic, I'm gonna reverently watch the letter scene again. Lovely. I also liked seeing Damon choose to unequivocally apologize to Matt for Vickie. And Matt give a somewhat realistic response- more feels. What else happened? Oh yeah, the bell and the Donovan family bell making relevance are stupid. I'll promptly forget about them again. I will, though, be happy to watch more father-son bonding with Joel Gretsch. Jasmine Guy's presence in the credits spoiled me- it was so nice to see Grams. Glad she didn't torture anyone. Not really:
  14. Yep, Kwame and another Voltagio (*sigh*) episode. Michael was very sympathetic to Kwame and understood how Kwame's emotions got in the way of what he was trying to do.
  15. *sigh* Voltagio. ::::oldladygrossslobber:::: I can understand that MV isn't classically handsome but damn does he have "C" Charisma. And while I'm a goodie two shoes that is blissfully without my own ink, I don't begrudge him trying to out rebel the rebels- particularly if it gives him a "bad boy" aesthetic compared to his brother's (*triplequadruplesighdrool*) sweet goofy boy next door.
