    Proven Innocent

    So, wait. Reporters don't just get the story their editor tells them to, even if it's not true? Editors don't admonish their reporters for sleeping with story subjects when they don't yield the right story? I actually think prosecutors and defense lawyers get a fair shake, but reporters get treated like total bottom feeders on this show.

    Proven Innocent

    There's a big difference between "beyond a reasonable doubt" and provably not guilty. I don't even think it's all that noble for lawyers to cherry pick people who seem innocent and retry their cases to change the result. For example, Barry Scheck uses DNA evidence to free people because police and prosecutors used bad methods to convict these people. Whether they are guilty in reality is less important than making sure the legal system follows the rules set forth by the Constitution. It's also laughable that Gore tried to convince Madeline that Adele was guilty by claiming he knows when someone's guilty. He just told Madeline HE knows she's guilty to this day. Bellows definitely was trying but failing to do the right thing this week, potentially letting a drug executive put a bad product on the market and pimping out his protege.

    S01.E15: I'll Tell You A Story

    The Initiative was incredibly stupid, but Triad isn't nearly as bad in my opinion. The idea is that in a world where witches, werewolves and vampires exist, other magical creatures should exist as well. Malivore makes that possible. I am concerned that this story might take up a lot of season 2, because this was supposedly about legacies. In terms of the school, I thought most of the characters brought their A game in this episode. Hope and Landon (both of them) were great. Josie was good on her own. I thought Raf came off a little wooden for someone facing so much trauma and Lizzie grates on me, but that's what Lizzie is supposed to do.

    S02.E11: Lasting Impressions

    Dick Van Dyke is kind of a dated reference for people born in the 80s, unless they happened to catch Diagnosis Murder. They specifically only mentioned texts and the address book in the episode. Given the phone was from 2015, the level of Facebook and Instagram might not as been as heavy as it is in 2019. I read about a beer company making a recipe dating back to the American Revolution, and it wasn't much different than some of the craft beers today. The Inner Light was one of the top ST:TNG episodes ever and tonight's Orville did not hold a candle to it in my opinion. iPhone Laura didn't like her job, had an on-again, off-again boyfriend and wanted to be a singer. This was the extent of her character development.

    Schooled

    Aly is one of the reasons CW still has old episodes of 2010's Hellcats online. AJ is no slouch in the looks department, either.

    If they wanted to be on more than a season, ABC is not the best place to do it.

    Very similar to "Booby Trap," where Gordi, er, Geordi fell in love with an incomplete simulation of a real woman. I wasn't really a fan of the episode tonight, which was actually not as good as its TNG inspiration. I would have liked to have learned something about what happened to Laura. Even with the passage of 500 years, there are probably some records, although I doubt she became famous. Also, I was shocked at how much the crew was allowed to get their grimy mitts on pristine artifacts. This time Isaac was not seen at all, but was talked about (and not immediately branded a traitor). Hopefully, they dumped one of the weak ones in March so they can keep their powder dry for sweeps.

    I would have appreciated that scene in the third (maybe second) season, but it just felt like cheap drama to get people to pay attention. I'm going to chalk that up to out of sequence editing of the scene.
  9. If Tobias is going to stay on the show, I'm glad that he at least gets captured and sent to prison occasionally.

    I don't even think there was much publicity. 10 minute after the episode, #therookie wasn't trending. Not knowing guns that well, I think if she had a gun that ejects bullets (semi-automatic?) the ammunition and the gun would be operational after being in the water. Most of the damage would be after the water started corroding the gun.

    Just guessing, but either they didn't know where he was, didn't have any evidence of him ordering a hit, or both.

    S01.E16: Greenlight

    That guy with the crazy girlfriend was the one who called off the greenlight. He just decided to do it himself and defy his father. I understand Bradford's explanation about the raid. People buy drugs and go to prostitutes, so trying to eliminate them is like whack-a-mole. The point of this raid was to send a message to Southern Front that ordering the murder of a cop means you lose your drug business and some other gang who doesn't kill cops gets it instead. I'll say one thing. I'll be pissed if they killed off Captain Anderson to make Sarah Shahi the new captain.

    That was just depressing. Captain Badass starts taking out all the perps and the dirtbag ringleader gets off the luckiest shot ever. Plus, this show is becoming less about being a rookie and more about the crazy situations Nolan gets into. You can't make Castle with a cast twice the size. Otherwise, it's not an ensemble. It's too bad, because Alicia Coppola was fun to watch at the beginning of the episode.
  14. I think Gambi pointed this out when he found out Jen could generate her own electricity, because he said it was different from what Black Lightning does. Black Lightning knows not to get between two women fighting.
  15. Gambi probably had Jeff's cobbler and doesn't want to come to dinner that often. So, Odell has been watching the Pierce daughters change and killed the team monitoring the cameras at the house so he can just drop the "I know who you are and you're working for us" crap in the last scene?
