  1. I like Anna Kendrick but I’m not sure what the marketing advantage of making her so nasty on the Hilton commercials is.
  2. S03. E04. Justice for Cable

    Whenever this show is not about Bull manipulating a jury it feels contrived to me.
  3. S09.E01: A New Beginning.

    Regarding the contrived “the Sanctuary is dependent on the other communities because crops won’t grow there” plot point, I kept wanting to yell the (slightly paraphrased) Sam Kinison line at the Sanctuary people: “HEY GUYS, WHY DON’T YOU MOVE TO WHERE THE FOOD GROWS?”
  4. S01.E01: Pilot

    But this is the Dick Wolf alternate universe where dog-fighting matches somehow take place in fancy Manhattan high-rises inhabited by wealthy white stockbrokers (an actual L&O episode). Nothing, no matter how bizarre, surprises me in Dick-Wolf-land.
  5. S04.E09: Wiedersehen

    It is Werner's "Great Escape". In the move, "The Great Escape", most of the escapees died. I think only one of the escapees lived. Most of the rest were hunted down and killed. IIRC, Steve McQueen's character was recaptured and then shot. It has been so long since I have seen the movie, my memory isn't very good. For what it’s worth, the “good-guy” guard in that movie was named Werner.
  6. S04.E09: Wiedersehen

    Episode title was interesting: “Wiedersehen” rather than “Auf Wiedersehen”. Literally “to see again” rather than “Until we see [each other] again” (aka goodbye). Lalo’s visit reinvigorates Hector, who now sees the world again.
  7. S04.E15: I Lose People...

    I really do like the new cast—they are tremendously fun compared to Madison The Perfect and Nick The Mopey et al. I like that they care about each other so much, even if it’s a little contrived. I just wish they had better villains than the snooze-worthy Vultures and the awful one-note Martha.
  8. S04.E07: Something Stupid

    Mesa Verde = “green table”. The idea of MV playing pool with their assets isn’t too much of a stretch, I hope.
  9. S01. E01. Perro/Oc.

    Was that the bad guy from Apocalypto (one of my favorite movies) playing one of the Mayans? Nice meta if so.
  10. S04.E05: Quite A Ride

    A thoroughly entertaining episode with lots of classic Jimmy/Saul antics. Kim with the O BABY WHAT IS YOU DOING moment with her passive aggressive attempt to get herself fired from MV. Not sure why she’s doing that. Loved the symbolism of Saul literally slicing up/gutting the law in the flash forward. Why was the first SuperLab architect rejected?
  11. S04.E03 Something Beautiful

    I think Kim was at the courthouse to check up on where Mesa Verde was getting all the financing for the massive expansion. Any guesses for what the episode title refers to?
  12. S04.E03 Something Beautiful

    “These are the only ones of which the news has come to Harvard There may be many others but they haven’t been dis-carvered” Gale not finishing that Tom Lehrer song is like “Shave and a haircut” without “two bits”.
  13. Official notice: I am not responsible for anything that may happen the next time I hear the term “she shed”.
  14. S04.E02: Breathe

    Emmy for Rhea Seehorn.
  15. S04.E09: People Like Us

    What an absolute mess this show has become. The characters are awful and thoroughly dislikable except for Morgan, John, and Al. Charlie is a little sociopath and murderer, Alicia an insufferable brat, June/Laura a selfish swine, etc etc etc. Isn’t there anyone on the writing staff who realizes that a continuing drama series requires characters that people care about? They have totally written themselves into a corner and can’t get out.
