    S7 E21: The White Whale

    Glad I wasn't the only one getting really annoyed with Severide's attitude this whole episode. You know Severide maybe the Investigator could have been able to move faster on your information if you hadn't held onto it so that you could make copies of it and go over it with your buddy Casey and Chief Boden. Yes, it is sad that Kidd is basically regulated to Severide sympathizer each week. I have watched the show off and on but man it really does seem to force pairings and Casey/Sylvie is no different. Good to see Jerry from ER. And to those who wonder, he has always been that big. Having seen him in other shows like Married With Children and Wings where they highlighted what a big man he is as opposed to ER, it wasn't as glaring. Plus I also think Hermann and the rookie are pretty short.

    S05.E20: Gone Rogue

    Yeah have to agree with others with the whole Nora and her storyline need to end soon. Which is a shame since I loved the actress on Black Sails. However is it just me or is this whole idea that Thawne wants to help defeat Cicada and destroy the dagger just one big flashing danger sign? I mean we were told that the records around Thawne's imprisonment have been redacted and it seems he doesn't have his power in the future. In Nora's future Cicada is never stopped so the blade is never destroyed and in that future Thawne has been captured. Somehow I don't think it will be a big coincidence that if Cicada and the blade are destroyed that Thawne will suddenly be able to be free. That's just a theory. Barry for the love of God you can still not be angry at Nora and still not trust Thawne's plan.

    S01.E12: There's a Mummy on Main Street

    Yeah not sure why Dorian would be made at Aleric except maybe for not saying something about the kiss to him. Aleric didn't know that Emma was involved with Dorian till after the kiss. Interesting development with Aleric and Kaleb. Seems like they both have come to understand the others' position which is a nice change without the show trying to tell one is completely right and the other is wrong. Don't know about Josie admitting to having a crush on Hope was necessary especially if nothing ever happens with them. Just seems like something to tease people who may ship them. Though I had to laugh at Josie's line about how could she not have a crush on Hope considering she already has two other people in love/crushing on her.

    S2 05: Do a Little Harm...

    going to have join in with being on Sullivan's side for the most part. He did go a bit overboard with his criticism of Bishop but he wasn't wrong to criticize her and the whole unit for how they were handling the training. Good job with the backstory though have to wonder why he did return. Also wondering if Captain Herrera remembers what happened with Sullivan and his wife. It was 15 years ago. If he does have to wonder why he would think Sullivan would just be okay with him hanging around the station. Also it is hard to be on Andy's side when the show continually shows just how self-absorbed she is. Sure there was the bathroom incident and her issues with Ryan but come on Vic is continually talking about Capt Ripley up to a point Andy should see something is going on at least on Vic's side instead she finds a way to make Ripley being there about her. Jack and Bishop are fun in an antagonist type way. Just please don't have something happen between them.

    S18.E03: Hell's Riders

    Oh show it's like you're not even trying anymore. Seriously you have the person eliminated by walking out and leaving her chef coat in the kitchen give an exit interview saying that she should have told Ramsay to stick said coat up his ass all the while she is wearing the coat in the interview. You couldn't have had her say that outside as she was leaving?

    S02.E10: The Passenger

    I actually have enjoyed the season and the finale. I know that some have found it confusing but honestly I thought season 1 was probably more confusing. Or maybe once you see how they do things it gives you a better idea of how to see certain clues. Though the Charlotte is Delores twist was well done. Will need to see the season again to see if I can notice the differences between Charlotte in the two timelines. I do remember thinking that it something was weird when she was introduced in the current timeline. I do wonder who is now in Charlotte since Delores was brought back at the end. MiB is not a host during the current timeline. He has basically lost himself in the game. He really did kill all those people including his daughter in the last episode. The MiB in the post credit I'm not so sure of. From the dialogue it seems he has been living these events over and over. It could be in his mind or something else. Also seeing his madness in the last episode and this episode really makes me wonder if those scenes of children talking for Ford to the MiB were real or just in his head. This season when it has happened it was always when he was by himself. I am interested to see where they go from here and who else was in that bag that Charlores took out of the park.

    S02.E06: Phase Space

    I liked the episode. Loved the ending with Ford. Was really intrigued by the conversation with MIB and Emily. It felt very real. Her apologizing for blaming him for her mom's suicide felt real. Don't know from personal experience, but it feels realistic that she tried to find someone to blame for the suicide before eventually coming to realize that it was her mother's decision. Also I think we got an idea of what William was like with his family. As she said, she idolized him as a child but sees the real him now. His not remembering that it was his wife not Emily that was afraid of the elephants seems like something that happened a bit. He makes a minimum effort to remember that one of them is afraid of the elephants but not enough to remember who it was. Wouldn't be surprised if this was something that happened quite a bit where it looks like he is making a minimum effort. HIs misremembering things like the elephant probably happened quite a bit with the wife and while the first couple of times it could be kind of endearing but after a while it would become obvious that he is just going through the act of caring. And considering that his wife knew him before and after his initial trip to Westworld she probably saw a difference.

    For The People

    The episode was okay. Not sure about Leonard. It really feels like the show has been coming up with a storyline almost every episode while other characters have gone multiple episodes without a storyline. I would like to see all of the characters get some of the character development that he is getting. As an Astros fan, I have to dislike the Yankee's ticket storyline on principle alone. Do like that Jay was able to get a win for his client. Liked Allison getting all involved while watching the tennis matches. It was weird that when Sandra took off her jacket, she really did look young. Probably enjoyed her storyline this episode the best. Both with the client and also the part with Seth and Allison. Still liking the Sandra/Allison relationship the best.

    For The People

    I enjoyed the episode. Do wish Sandra would have been able to beat Leonard. Sandra as a lawyer doesn't seem that great however, her friendship with Allison is one of the best relationships in the series. To the poster above mentioning Kate going to UVA being bad writing is that your reasoning for it being bad is mistaken. Kate didn't say the trip was just to DC, it was specifically to the Capitol building. She gives statistics and facts about the building as well as the Lego model she is building in the episode is of the building. So she never got to go the Capitol building not that she has never gone to DC.

    S02.E16: Chapter Twenty-Nine: Primary Colors

    Damn Chic is the 'curse of the new characters in a 2nd season' that almost all shows suffer from. His storyline is just so annoying. It's weird that the idea that FP and Alice having a secret child seemed so much better than the actual Chic storyline. His character seems to be dragging the whole Cooper clan down and they were such a fun dynamic in season one. Kevin what the hell? Nice twist with Josie being the one to help Ethel. Loved Archie's Mom telling him off. He needed to hear that. It's almost amusing how overdramatic the core four's issues are when compared to the truly horrible family life that Cheryl has. Conversion therapy?!? Wow that is just scary how truly despicable Penelope is. Shouldn't be surprised about Claudius considering his twin killed his own son.

    S02.E14: Chapter Twenty-Seven: The Hills Have Eyes

    This episode was a bit odd. With the core four it felt like it was packing too much storylines into it while with the rest of the cast it felt like it was underwritten. As others have pointed out, the whole robbery part felt completely forced. Really a robbery storyline either is a cliffhanger or is the major driving force of a storyline for an episode, it shouldn't be some random part. They had enough to go on with the dealing with Betty/Archie kiss and the divide over Hiram. The problem with just throwing this in is that the time used for it could have been used to help flush out the Cheryl/Toni and/or Josie/Kevin storylines. Each of those storylines could have used at least one more scene. Cheryl's mom really is the worst. It is interesting that Cheryl is very much a stereotypical bully, in that she is lashing out at others because she is basically being mentally abused in her home life.

    Everything Sucks

    I was actually glad that it wasn't the dancing baby since all I heard since the previews were complaints that this isn't how gifs loaded. Really like how Luke is being portrayed as a pretty realistic teenage boy. Definite moodiness. His anger probably was over the top but I do remember being the same way as a kid. Also glad that he and Kate did make up because they are good together as friends. Man I found myself singing along with Ken to Breakfast at Tiffany's. I feel so dorky. Liked that let Kate actually keep the piercing. They have a great relationship. Loved that Kate was excited about him dating as well. Kate you could have kept the puppy and just ripped off JTT. Liked the dynamic with Oliver/Emaline/McQuaid/Tyler. I remember when I was part of a school play that I hung out with kids I usually wouldn't hang out but then of course after the play was through didn't really hang much with them. The continual change with Luke's father is really good even if it just a short video every couple of episodes.

    Everything Sucks

    As someone who was in high school in 96 I had to watch this just for the nostalgia. However, I am glad the show is good and filled with nostalgia without going over the top. Could definitely relate to the characters. Knew people like almost all the characters. Unfortunately I think I was probably more the McQuad of my group. Really like the characters of Luke and Kate. Both seem like good young actors. Really annoyed that it seems like Netflix tried to market this like it is the same vein as Stranger Things because keep seeing all reviewers trying to compare when they are not the same. Yes both shows are set in the near past 80's and 90's with kids as the main cast but the genre of the shows are completely different. Some have compared this to Freaks and Geeks. I also think this show is kind of like the Wonder Years without the Ron Howard voiceover. Also this did make me think of my school days so much that I kept wanting to yell at Luke to not wear his backpack over both shoulders because an older kid is going to tug on it really hard and pull him down.

    Everything Sucks

    Yeah not seeing the whole over the top usage of the 90's. As someone who literally would have been about Kate's or Emaline's age group in 96, most of the references are natural enough that I recognize them but don't take me out of the scenes. I do remember the whole Ironic conversation happening when the song first came out. I actually did kind of flash back to my childhood remembering some of my friends discussing it.

    S02.E05: Chapter Eighteen: When A Stranger Calls

    WTF Riverdale. This show gets more and more insane. Did Betty just indirectly kill a guy? Also is this the Black Hood really calling Betty? Sheriff Keller said the handwriting on Betty's letter didn't match the one to her mom. It's possible it is the same person just changing handwriting to make the police and everyone else believe that they shouldn't be watching Betty more closely and if Betty had told about the calls to not believe her. Or if it isn't the killer than it could be someone using the killings hide who he really is. If it is the latter I think the person calling Betty is either going to be Chuck or possibly her brother. Holy cow when I first saw the legs and revealing dress I was thinking, it has to be Cheryl but damn it was Alice Cooper. Madchen Amick looked amazing. The Veronica with Josie and Pussycats beat down of Nick was great. Not a fan of Jughead in the SSS storyline. Also not really fond of him and Toni. Not because of any shipping reasons but mainly this seems like an Archie thing to do, break up with one girl and have another one waiting.
