    Killjoys Actors in Other Roles

    After watching the first few episodes of this, I am intrigued enough to go back when have time to watch more. Its a very serialized drama, as each episode leads directly into the next one. There are bits that are kinda procedural, but not really. They use flashbacks somewhat liberally, but they are useful and add to the story, not done just for artistic filler. The Movie Network must be Canada's version of HBO/Starz/Cinemax - or at least a premium cable channel - because the combination of language, barely averted nudity, and occasional softcore sex scene would only fly on one of those premium cable channels here in the states.

    Thanks, @Jacks-Son. I'll have to carve out and devote time, when can, to check this out for myself.

    I'm interested in knowing this as well. I've watched the BluRay version of S1 and quite a bit of S2, but they were '4:3-converted-to-16:9 stretched' versions. The visual quality was pretty good - or as good as upscaled 480p can look - but I can't help but wonder what it looks like with an upscaled version of its OAR.

    Killjoys Actors in Other Roles

    Anyone ever watch the series ReGenesis back from 2004-2008? Guess its a show about a biological SWAT team, of sorts. Produced and aired in Canada, originally. I definitely hadn't back then, and haven't yet (plan on watching it very soon), but while looking up info about it, I see that Mayko Nguyen (DSK) had a semi-starring role for the whole of the series [52 eps]. Funnily enough, her show's first name and her own were the same. Definitely can tell the age difference in the pics I saw, but not exactly a surprise, as its been 10-14 years between ReGenesis and Killjoys. [its available on Amazon Prime, if interested.....]

    Whiskey Cavalier

    I'm really only here to check it out for Lauren Cohan - being a Chuck, as well as a former SPN & TWD, fan - and how you mentioned the show (at least in the pilot) shares traits with Chuck. Also, I don't mind the spy stuff, if done well. If those two points of interest aren't enough to hold my interest after a few episodes, then it'll be time to move on.

    Ok, now I have to check this out! (curse you Trini, in case I end up really liking it and it has to endure road bumps like Chuck did during its run - if even gets a second season, let alone 5 of them)

    So, Criminal Minds is ending, what do you want for the final episode?

    Despite myself, I can't help but feel a tiny bit of hope that all this nonsense created about thinking/implying that the bit about Reid gaining a "significant love interest" is just a clever (yet terribly obvious) way to cover the impending JJ/Reid. And people are just mentally imagining said love interest to be a brand new character. I just find it a bit odd that they are supposedly at least 4 episodes in to filming the new season and there has been no spoilery mention or BTS leaks of a new female character around, especially in scenes with Reid. Talk about 'worst case scenarios', if they bring in this 'new LI' and they only allow brief moments in a couple/few of the last 5 episodes of the series? Or knowing this creative staff, its only in the very end (a flash forward) at the end of 5.10 [the finale]. Hell, I'm prepared to accept the fact it'll probably be 'pre-manufactured'; IE his mom's new caretaker, after he decides to bring her back to live in-home with him.

    So, Criminal Minds is ending, what do you want for the final episode?

    I read an opinion article earlier that brought that up as the 'worst case scenario'. Basically, it was "JJ finally cracks under the pressure of the confession & dealing with her feelings for Reid, and reveals all to Will, thus leading to a (somewhat) amicable divorce. Then when she gets around to revealing the news to Reid, he'll be with the new LI and that'll set up heartbroken & pining JJ (if not both)." I'm already planning to be disappointed and mad, as an admitted JJ/Reid fanon enthusiast. Why pull this shenanigans now if it won't go anywhere? If this ends up just being a 'special shoutout to the Jeid/Jencer #OTP fans', then they used an unforgivably despicable choice of way to convey it. In fact, I expect the same here in S15 as we usually get from CM writers. There will be a few passing mentions of the 'dealing with the confession' in the first couple eps - basically, "ha, lol we were jk, their just friends and it was just JJ being a poker bluff genius" - but then poof!, it'll all disappear (& never be hinted at again) like a magic trick. And we'll get to see a central character get fixed up with a LI, with just a limited amount of time & episodes to do it any justice. The announcement that this next season would be the last used to feel bittersweet. Now its just plain ol' bitter.

    S14.E15: Truth or Dare

    So, I broke down and watched the finale.... To me, its like the writers are trying to throw us for the most epic of dual fake-outs. First they set up the beginning with the fact that apparently JJ can fool Reid and his ability to read her 'tells'. So that implies that whatever paradigm changer may happen later within the episode's time-span should be viewed as her bluffing (if/when necessary). But then the rest of the episode was so blatantly about love felt for others, it wasn't even the slightest bit subtle. Then the confession, the looks (espcially after the quote about "twin flames"), the tension-filled silence when asked if what was said was true, etc. So many conflicting ways to interpret things. Then, add in the 'Reid's LI for next season' stuff and I just don't even know which way is up anymore, in terms of guessing what the heck is going with EM & the writers room, or how any of this could or will play out.
