    S04.E08: Years, Continents, Bloodshed

    Yes! I loved the dysfunctional world of Neptune. It was a great metaphor for current times. I loved the Veronica and Wallace friendship that never got weird with potential romance like every other friendship between a hetero man and woman on TV. I even loved Dick and Vinny because in small doses they’re funny. Mystery shows with no lead character development are all over TV and most of the have titles with acronyms. I don’t want any of them in my TV viewing schedule. What I do want is a show full of flawed, interesting characters like the inhabitants of Neptune. I don’t want to live there, but I like to visit. Edited to add: I just realized Rob Thomas stole the ending of the James Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. James Bond gets married but he can’t be to continue the franchise so the bride gets killed on their wedding day by the villain who is trying to shoot James. This wasn’t even one of the good Bond movies, BTW.

    S16.E05: Auditions 5

    I don’t get all the Laurieann hate. She seems middle of the pack to me among all the judges. Mostly, I am just glad she is not Jason Derulo or a random celebrity like Vanessa Hudgens.

    S16.E05: Auditions 5

    I looked up past seasons, and it varies. In season 4 there were SIX episodes of auditions. Several seasons had five weeks of auditions. More recent seasons have had just two or three so that’s probably why it seems so long. I miss them going to different cities. Sometimes there was a short segment on the dance culture in that city. I prefer that to the lengthy contestant backstories. I don’t want to become invested in someone until they make the top 20.

    S04.E10: Who's da New King of Hell?

    I’ve just realized the downside to having Lucifer on Netflix is less episodes per season with longer breaks between seasons. How unfair this is after such a great season 4. I can’t wait to see how Lucifer gets Hell back in order and escapes back to L.A. I am willing to forgive Netflix for cancelling Daredevil in exchange for season 5 of Lucifer.

    S04.E01: Everything's Okay

    I loved this episode. Ironically, I feel like I got my old show back now that it has a new home. No one has mentioned this yet so I have to ask... Was anyone else bothered by Lucifer licking his fingers sticking them back in the jar of honey? That’s so unsanitary and messy. I have never seen avocado honey before, but now I want to try it. An article I read about it says it tastes like molasses.

    S05.E18: The Roughest Day

    It makes sense from the perspective of having a storyline every year about a rival record label with a personal connection to Lucious. Becky and Giselle must have been next in the rotation. We must also have either an unexpected pregnancy or a child we didn’t know about.

    S08.E04: The Last of the Starks

    My new standard response whenever someone points out a mistake I made is “At least I didn’t leave a coffee cup on the Winterfell banquet table.”

    S08.E04: The Last of the Starks

    Perhaps if Dany had followed Sansa’s suggestion to recuperate before going after Cersei, Rhaegal wouldn’t have been flying with a hole in his wing and have been able to evade some of Euron’s arrows. What does it say about Dany that she doesn’t think about the health of her beloved dragons before insisting they leave fo Kings Landing pronto? Jon and Dany are lucky Westeros does not seem to have an ASPCA equivalent.

    S02.E06: B Sides

    I know this is just a TV show, but having both counselors be bad guys sends a bad message. I feel like I was cheated out of an episode because most of it was hallucinations. I wouldn’t mind this kind of episod if this show had more episodes per season. Everything that wasn’t a hallucination felt rushed. Lots of character actions without motivations explained.

    S05.E15: A Wise Father That Knows His Own Child

    Probably won’t happen, but I love the idea. Has Kingsley just realized that his mother the drug addict lied to him? Addicts lie. Anyone who had ever watched a “very special episode” of a sitcom with an addiction storyline knows this. Yet Kingsley, the child of an addict, does not? Puleez. Most unbelievable plot point since whatever happened last episode.

    S08.E01: Winterfell

    I agree with you about Sansa’s treatment of Daenerys, but I give her a pass on Tyrion because she didn’t want to marry him and I guess technically she may still be married to him. Also, considering how much of her family is dead because of his, I understand why she may prefer to avoid him.

    S02.E12: Sanctuary

    Has it been established that Mochlans grow fast? I don’t know exactly how much time has past on the show, but’s I don’t think it’s enough for Topa to be so big. The Mochlan episodes are my favorites.

    S02.E12: Through the Valley of Shadows

    I would have expected hangnails and ingrown hairs vaccination s by the 23rd century. This show needs a lot more scenes like the one between Reno and Hugh. Character development of everyone but Michael has been sacrificed in favor of convoluted plots.
  14. I hope this show gets renewed, but a Netflix has been on a cancellation rampage. I will be upset if we never know if Nick gets freed from Hell or where Those witch hunters came from.

    S06.E11: The Therapist

    That sounds like more fun than a trip to the barrel museum.
