    Episode Discussion: TFGH

    I have the feeling I'm supposed to be bI have zero anxiety or interest about what will happen to Sasha and that's a fault of the writing as well as the null chemistry. It's moved so slowly that it feels like it ess a couple of months ago that Cassandra injected the virus and then disappeared. We still don't know why she did it, there's been no connection to anything else in the show such as Jax having her file, and nothing about Sasha's maternity other than a brief line asking if it was a punishment. Meanwhile they left with a Drew memory cliffhanger with Andre and possibly Liesl working on a cure, Shiloh isn't dead yet and now he may team up with Nelle, there's Ava and her psychic, and Julian and Kim leaving, and Carly's baby and wedding vow renewal, and annoying Dev. And I wouldn't mind another scene with Alexis and Neil. Unless they're going to do something soon with Cassandra, it should have been left for a later date.
  2. The Space channel plays Star Trek reruns on weekday afternoons: TOS on Mondays,, TNG on Tuesdays, Voyager Wednesday, DS9 Thursdaya and Enterprise on Friday. It's interesting to compare them as the decades move on. TNG is the one I like the least because it was so sexist even for the 1990s. Wesley Crusher is considered the original Mary Sue but for my money, Picarrd and Ryker were worse. They had faults, on paper, but they were never less than the heroes of the show, and it was the men, Ryker, Picard, Wesley, Data and Geordie who were the real stars of the show. In terms of the female characters, they got maybe one episode per season about them. And once Tasha Yar was gone, only the female stereotypes roles: Guinan the shoulder for everyone to cry on, Beverly the doctor and Deanna the counselor. All three of these are written as the "caring empathetic woman" and sometimes badly. I was in university studying psychology at the time and wow, did we mock Deanna Troi, male and female alike. Voyager and DS9, in contrast, had some impressive female characters and gave them room to shine (a little too much for SevenofNine in my opinion). I'm willing to give Picard a try to see if they can fix the sexism and Gary Stu problem. But as Patrick Stewart is an executive producer, I'm not optimistic.

    She's Superman's Cousin!: And Other Supergirl Spoilers

    They need to have an alternate workplace to the DEO, whether it's Catco or somewhere else because only one workplace for everyone but Lena gets boring and Kara needs something other than just being Supergirl. I think Catco has a lot of potential since it's a media company but they really haven't used it to its potential in the last few seasons.

    How Do You Know You're In A Bad Relationship? Answer: when if there's no threat of danger, you have nothing to talk about.
  5. This feels like homework. Or hubris. It makes me angry every year when the Blue Ray and DVDs come out that the former has all the crossover episodes but the DVDs only have the episode of the show that you're buying. Not everyone can afford Blue Ray.

    Spoilers & Speculation: Running Hot & Cold

    Or the writers just ran out of good ideas period. Last season they took two characters who worked well in small doses (Gary and Mona) and spent too much time on them till they went from an asset to the show to a liability. I think focusing the season on Ava, the Time Bureau and Nate's father was a decision that hurt the show; it felt like it had moved from being about rebels and time travel (which I found charming) to being about the Time Bureau. I don't know how they are going to replace the hole that Ray is going to leave. The scene where Constantine finds Ray playing Jenga with Vandal Savage worked the way it did because of who the character of Ray is -- there is no other character on the show that could have made that scene work so well. This. The show was interesting and charming and played up the quirks and chemistry of the characters. Sara earned her way to captain and Beebo was a major hit. Now Ray and Nora are going to be gone, Zari is rebooted and her big story will be to see if she will be worthy of Nate (blech), Mick is barely on, Charlie is a footnote and Sara is always secondary to the relationship with Ava.

    Spoilers & Speculation: Running Hot & Cold

    Ray's optimism and being a genuine good guy helped to balance the other characters who were mostly either dark or grey in Sara's case. I'm bored with Constantine's magic at this point (a little of the character goes a long way), Mick is barely there, and Nate is setting a new record for a Gary Stu. With Ray and Nora gone, I'm left with Sara and Mick as my reasons to watch since it appears that they're going to spoil Zari as they did Amaya. This doesn't feel like a smart creative decision to me.

    So much more story potential than Nate. They were so cute together. The one relationship on the show that I liked.

    Scout has no ties to FrankenDrew because she was conceived after the 2012 memory cutoff. She has neither biological nor memory connection to him. If Girl Reporter is writing about wine tasting, why isn't she taking notes? I hate how Lulu thinks she's too good to write weekend features. There are no small stories, Lulu, just small writers. I haven't cringed as much in a long time as I did at Maxie and Peter's ILYs. Maxie's hair is the same shade of grey as the dust bunnies that I was cleaning earlier. Doesn't everyone already know that Peter was involved in Jason's kidnapping and drugging? Shiloh's blackmail is so lame.

    There aren't really any boys outside the Corinthos vortex either other than Aiden and Cam. Jake is Jason's kid so I'd consider him within it, and both Spencer and Wylie/Jonas are definitely within. Even Leo probably goes to Corinthos family occasions with his mom Olivia. The Corinthos mob has really sucked up the show.

    Only Avery and out-of-town Emma and Georgie II. Yes, but Sam has learned the error of her ways and now accepts that Carly's family comes first. Besides, how can she get mad at Jason for ignoring the kids when she can barely remember that they exist herself?

    Private Eyes

    She was so different from Angie. Nice job. They did it very badly on Republic of Doyle. I thought that she was an awful character for most of the seasons, badly written. Hopefully Private Eyes won't need to spend as much time on this mysterious daughter of Shade's because there is already plenty of family time for him. I'm also excited to see what Katie Boland does with the role.

    If Drew's name is ever brought up, Sam and Carly will say how lucky Scout is to have Jason as her dad since Drew abandoned her.

    The way Sonny talks to Ava is one of the worst things about this show and given how bad it gets at times, that's saying a lot. Of course he is. There is nothing that Jason isn't perfect at except for things like compassion and integrity. To be honest, I can't understand why Charlotte isn't in a private school as well as Joss. Is the show trying to fake make them ordinary kids? I bet Valentine spent his life in private schools and he's a snob. Jax should be well aware of them as the Australian system is super competitive about which schools kids go to. Both of them should be in private schools. Both families have more than enough money for it. I was wondering the same. And since it was illegal money, there's no real way to return it to the people who were ripped off. Since it's Drew, I wish he would found a school in Oscar's name with the money. A school for girls would be nice.
