  1. Forget geographic location in the state, just school size-wise, there's no way Metroplis and Smallville would play each other, right? Unless Metroplis High is the comically smallest school in the whole city it's named for, they'd be in entirely different classes. Fellow Kansans, help me out here. But mostly, I have to get over that (and the "I've got no quarterback, QB2!" coach) because the rest of the episode was phenomenal. But do add me to the list wishing someone had pointed out what could have happened if the blow that snapped bones in Jonathan's wrist had hit Cutter in the face. He'd pr
  2. I don't get it? What's so damning about a 10- or 11-year-old wanting his dad to watch him practice a sport his dad also knows? Even if you disregard a kid just wanting to spend time with his father, presumably Eddie could offer tips on playing better. In general, I also notice people saying Theo acts too young, but honestly I've spent a fair amount of time with a couple kids his age, and "It's cuddle time!" notwithstanding, he seems pretty on point to me.
  3. Am I misremembering? Because I thought 1. The kid's death was less "Nicky accidentally killed him" and more "He died accidentally and Nicky couldn't stop it."(And yeah, it was reckless to be grenading fish and he was careless in his watching of the kid, but it's not like he accidentally shot him in the head or something.) And 2. WE know it was accidental...but Jack didn't, did he? I could have sworn that a big part of the episode was Angry Fucked Up Nicky Has No Compassion For/Resents The People to such a degree that it wouldn't be entirely unreasonable for Jack to think that kid's death was
  4. You're not getting 8 weeks out of nowhere at least. That's how long Delilah and her dad were expected to stay in France post hip-breakage. Who know now, though.
  5. I got a laugh at Rob Lowe and Lisa Edelstein talk about getting a second chance, given their West Wing history. Overall I really enjoyed this episode and...since I had to remind myself of who Blake even was, I'm clearly not going to miss her.
  6. Regarding Tess, I feel like Randall and Beth missed a good learning opportunity. Like, yeah, it's not appropriate to tell people to screw themselves (though, really, "screw you" is like the tamest of swears a person could give) and that should come with a punishment, but six weeks is excessive. And what does Tess learn from it, really? This could have been a lesson on expression and respect and activism and a booster on internet safety as well as an opportunity to get to know who Tess is becoming. Instead, all Tess learns is punishment avoidance (which btw, if you want to talk activism, civil
  7. Gary the Unspeakable Train Abomination got a legit laugh out of me. Not so much because Gary was funny as a train, but just the whole lighthearted abomination bit. Constantine was great. Everything was great. For a minute I was afraid the poisoned mousse would end up with Constantine, but I'm glad it was the ring mixup instead.
  8. My only clear memory of Dylan from the earlier seasons involves his band playing music late at night in the Dunphy lawn and keeping Phil and Claire awake, so I don't remember just when nursing school became a dream of his. I do question it a little bit, and wonder how many of Dylan's choices are made because they're what he wants to do versus thinking it's what he needs to do "to deserve" Haley. This whole dynamic where one person doesn't feel like they're worthy of another as themselves just never sits well with me, in any medium or fandom. And sure, I know this is TV land, where Dylan
  9. I liked this episode but for me the biggest laugh of it came from Gloria's "But you said at the bar her name was Olive Cocktail Napkin!" I'm not Gloria's biggest fan, but that was hilarious. Everything else was fine. I'll be a little disappointed if Dylan/Haley is endgame though. Like others have said, they were great as a high school romance, but I just like Haley so much better with Andy and Arvin. Because Andy makes their relationship seem really similar to Phil/Claire and there's something about that that's kind of cute. And Arvin is a classic case of opposites attract. You know, I
  10. I don't know. To me it looks like her mouth said "nothing there!" but her face said "oh, no, I do I feel things." I really liked Arvin, though, so I hope this doesn't spell the end of them.
  11. So, I was not the biggest fan of the Framework, mostly because none of it was real, and one of my fears in that season was that we were going to get a whole lot of "BUT I was a monster!! I AM A MONSTER!!!!!" from Fitz. And I just couldn't buy that, because Fitz and Framework Fitz were different people born from different life experiences. But I like this a little bit more. I think because it is focusing less on what Fitz did in there and more on the potential he has to be that ruthless. And that it's also being played as sort of a mental break I think really helps. Also? I flat-out loved
  12. Do we have any indication that Deke ever knew them though? All he said was that his mom used to have a similar ring that he thought belonged to his grandma (which doesn't even necessarily mean his mom is their daughter, but if she is, wasn't it implied that she died when Deke was young?)
  13. God, I will be glad when Sofia's gone. I just don't like her, and I think it's largely because I don't buy Crystal Reed in that role. Also? I miss pre-faceoff Jerome. He was so much fun! His crazy was joyous, and now it's just sinister, and that's not fun! I feel like Cameron Monahan has gone from creating his own unique Joker to ripping off Heath Ledger's Joker. Loved Bruce's dream, though. I actually want to go back and watch those parts again just to take it all in. And Jim is always at his best when he's with Bruce, Selina, Lucius or Alfred, so there was a lot of good there, too.
  14. I actually like Buck/Abby. I'm 100 percent here for Bobby/Abby. I'm not at all excited for the love triangle jealousy nonsense that is most definitely coming.
  15. You can't skip school without skipping classes. I mean, I agree that it probably wasn't a regular thing for her and she could make up the lessons that she missed so it's not going to destroy her education or be the first stop on a path to delinquency but this idea that she wasn't really missing anything baffles me. But yeah, I don't disagree with what Jack did. In a way it was its own lesson on following passions (one that Kate ultimately failed but maybe she's getting a do-over now). I just wish it also coyld hav been a teachable moment about being open and honest rather than sneaking around
