    Body of Evidence: Spoiler Discussion

    Someone help a sister out. Did they ever explain what happened to Roman's tattoo? Did I miss something? It was there at the end of Season 2(?) and then just gone at the start of Season 3(?). I also don't remember seeing it any any flashbacks. (Also, I didn't know where the hell else to put this.)

    Solving Cryptograms: Unspoiled Speculation

    So I'm trying to see my way through this season, much less into another season on the show. We've cured Jane's ZIP poisoning and the new big bad is a rank amateur most likely to blow herself up with an Acme dynamite kit. They're inevitably extricate Zapata from that situation, romantic reunion with Reade blah blah blah, Jane and Weller will go beat some people up in the name of good blah blah blah, what's next? Another layer of conspiracy? Is it turtles and tattoos all the way down? Does Jane have a split personality and share headspace with Remi? Or does this go back to tattoo-of-the-week and we clean up all the baddies? I guess we wait until May to find out if it's renewed.

    S04. E12. The Tale of the Book of Secrets

    Through the magic of streaming services and apps that act as DVRs for said services as well as a long commute, I have managed to catch up with this show. In fact, I've watched it pretty much from the beginning in about a month. I'm not sure what that says about me, but I have thoughts. 1. Nice to see Weller not shoot or punch his way out of a problem again. Hey, remember in Season 1 when he was more than just a lumbering meatball with a gun? Good on you, Kurt, for figuring out what Lee was up to and solve it without drawing your sidearm. Now if only we could get back to dialogue that isn't short and choppy and declarative. It's been five seasons, you should be able to do a passable Yank accent by now, even if you're attempting Western PA. 2. Jaimie Alexander must have loved this episode. A convenient turtleneck to cover up the fact that they didn't even bother with the tattoos. Not her best work here, but then again, this whole thing is hokey so I give her a pass. Also, she acknowledged that Kurt/Sullivan Stapleton has some janky-ass teeth so points for that. That tooth in the middle of his jaw just makes me wanna stick some braces on him. 3. I have literally no feelings on the Zapata storyline. None. Zero. I acknowledge it exists but I neither like it or hate it. As for Madeleine, she is such an amatuer big bad she won't get out of her own way. I guess we're spending the remainder of the season chasing her down? I'd say "snooze" except that Boston is involved now and his acerbic wit entertains me. 4. Rich and Patterson ... Patterson and Rich. I don't share the love and don't think these two could carry a spinoff. Rich is great in small doses. Patterson is great in small doses. Together, holding down a majorly dramatic episode didn't do much for me. Also, I'm expecting dramatic and emotional weight out of Blindspot, so I take it all back. This one's on me. Though the random Slipknot reference was oddly hilarious. Also, I wonder if all of their explosion money went into a location shoot.

    S04. E09. Check Your Ed

    According to season 3, he owns the unit. So I guess his co-op should fine him?

    S03.E02: Enemy Bag of Tricks

    So I'm watching this on Hulu and I'm really not even sure why; also apologies for resurrecting a dead thread. This show is so dumb. It's really, really dumb. But it's fun so that's okay. However, I did get slightly frustrated when they explained the missile shield and didn't simply say "Yeah, it's basic Ronald Reagan's SDI. You know, Star Wars? That whole thing?". It felt like whoever wrote this episode watched the same episode of Cold War Armageddon on History Channel that I did. Also, I just love how they hide Sullivan Stapleton's Aussie accent by having him talk. In short. Declarative. Sentences. And I want to fix his janky bottom teeth. Lastly, Roman's scar is missing. Has anyone put an APB out for it?

    S06.E09: Insult to Injury

    Its my experience that when someone is calling another person out for being an alcoholic publicly it's usually motivated by vindictiveness and not any sort of actual concern; also, the person is almost never an actual alcoholic. Who are also light on how analogies, euphemisms, similes and other rhetorical devices work.

    S06.E09: Insult to Injury

    I'm not sure I'm down with the whole "plucked from the masses to be the target of abuse" narrative you're selling. Third Stew's job is to eat shit and smile; it's not only a customer services and hospitality role, it's also the lowest of low rungs on the ladder. If you can't do it, if you can't eat more shit and smile brighter, you won't advance. If it was an easy job, everyone would do it but it's not which is why the tips are so large. If you're hiring on as a green deck hand/stewart you are going to get corrected and it's going to be harsh because it's a very steep learning curve; it's a big-money, high pressure industry that caters to very rich, very particular people. Part of the issue is that Caroline is the type of personality that needs a lot of positive reinforcement verging on hand-holding and that Caroline insisted on social interaction with Kate who is .... well, she's Kate. She's not interested in being your friend and praising you for doing the basic shit that's expected with the job. She's your boss, not your confidante, not your buddy. She has her own confidantes and buddies already and she's not interested in the fragile ego of a green stew. Add to additional strain put on Kate and Josiah by Caroline's maladies and it's not surprising that Kate had even less time for her.

    This. Or if you aren't going to work, get the %^&! off the boat. No employer, be it a yacht or a bank is going to let you just hang out while your now-former-coworkers work around you. That's some entitled BS right there. So you needed to talk to the captain before you could "officially" quit? You could have met him at the dock as he was coming back to the ship.
  9. Yeah, if dude had actually been arrested and/or did time, they'd be playing that up like the Paul and Karine Saga.

    S03.E06: The Ballad of Donkey Doug

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong ... but aren't Tahani's parents dead? Wasn't there a scene where they'd misspelled her name in their will and left their property to "Tahini Al-Jamil"? Or did I misconstrue the next mission and they're going to see Khamilla?

    Rings Like A Bell: The Cast Topic

    We have a new IT guy at work. His name is Derek. Everytime someone says his name, I repeat it like Jason Mantzoukas does. I am not ashamed of this, though Derek is starting to wonder if I'm ever going to ask him a question.

    S03.E05: Jeremy Bearimy

    Nicole Kidman. Also, I loved that the guy who asked poor, broken Chidi about the exam was named "Damon" and Chidi rips off a "How you like them apples?" at him.
  13. And I can see Rachel not fighting it as she's be free to just move in with Trashtastic Wolverine. IMO, she's far more likely to just walk away from her kid than to embark on an epic international child custody and abduction battle.
  14. I didn't say she had sole custody of the older child. Please feel free to go re-read exactly what I said.
  15. Again, you're speculating that Rachel is going to become an international fugitive from the law. How about you let her and the kids' fathers work it out before signing her up for a slot on INTERPOL's Most Wanted? For all you know, she may have already come to an agreement about the older kid and have sole custody of the baby. People manage to make these arrangement work all the time, between parents that travel for business or get reassigned or deployed overseas. It's not unheard of for a parent to give their ex custody and then come and spend the summer in the States with the kid or have the kid come spend the summer with her. It's not like Rachel is going completely underground and off the grid. She *may* just be moving to the UK, a developed nation that's easily accessible by air, and will still have plenty of family in the US.
  16. Yeah, I'm right there with you. This pisses me off to no end. NO END. This offends both my Marvel Geek side, my Bourdain loving side and my sense of common decency.
  17. 1. You and I and the board in general aren't privy to their custody arrangement and don't know what they may or may not agree to in the future. 2. You and I and the rest of the board do not know what sort of travel arrangements the father may or may not agree to in the future, if any. 3. The UK, like most civilized countries, is part of several UN-backed pacts regarding non-custodial abduction and is actually quite helpful when it comes to returning a child to the custodial parent. It's not like trying to get a child back from Iran.
  18. I think this is a lot of speculation. Custodial arrangements vary. You never know what two parents will agree to.
  19. Not always. Some are fluffier, some are muscley. Some are skinny. Some are curvey. Some are visibly pregnant. Some have massive scars from what looks like an open leg fracture. Some have half an arm. What? Are you telling me your local strip club doesn't have Scratch and Dent night? It's usually Tuesday.
  20. Dr. Who fans? She sacrificed it the minute she stepped onto that MetroNorth Shit Crate in rejects from Mariah Carey's last tour road case and six inch heels. Also, why are you going to a park that roughly 37% of SVU episodes start in?
  21. Dear Darcey's Sister ... the word is CITED. You were CITED. Gaaah.

    Being a Reserve or Special is different from being a Constable. Reserves and Specials aren't elected positions, which a constable is. And to run a campaign you need money and the backing of your local party, which is usually attainable with money.

    Or an actual LEO I know likes to call them, "Pay for Play Cops".

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    And He will raise you up On eagle's wings Bear you on The breadth of dawn Make you to shine like the sun And hold you in the palm of of His hand. On Eagles' Wings is a very popular hymn from the mid-70's that based on several books, including Psalms, Matthew and Exodus. (13 years of Catholic education. It's an involuntary reflex.)
