  1. The last 4 episodes have been very solid. I wondered if Randall and Kevin's falling out is going to be over Kevin wanting to build the house and part of Randall's issues to control everything! That small bit of soft egg seemed unlikely to cause a choking incident, but maybe I'm just lucky that my daughter never had such issues with her food! (I still cut up grapes for her, she's 3 and always remember nurse saying that's the most common and dangerous choking food)
  2. Agreed, this was best episode of the season. It's been a while since the nuns were focus of an episode, so it was nice to see all 4 having something to do, particularly nice that Sr Hilda and Sr Frances got more to do they still feel quite new so nice to have them developed more. Sister Monica and her quest to see Sound of Music was fun, but also nice to see at the start to see her in her more sisterly duties at the last rites of the old woman. It's always great to have a story line with Sister Julianne as Jenny Agutter does a superb job as always. Her at cinema reminded me of the episode where she met her old love interest and they watched movie at his house.
  3. Anyone else thinking there will be a problem with Mei's adoption? It seemed to linger on the papers being put aside on the shelf, I wondered if they'll not file it in time or something, or I could be reading far too much into it! I do think we'll see at least one of the doctor's back at some stage. I'd be happy to see both McNulty and Walther return.
  4. I agree with other that characters this season seem to be inconsistent but I did enjoy this episode, probably one of my favorites this season and I think the reason for that is it was much more of an ensemble episode. We got time with the Queen and PM and the coal miner strike, Prince Edwards funeral briefly, Camilla and Charles with Mountbatton and Queen Mother's scheming and of course Ann being brilliant and witty. I've found too many episodes focused on just one character this season and honestly those "poor rich me, no one understands me" episodes get rather annoying (Phillip, Lord Mountbatton, Prince Edward and Margaret in particular, the Charles episode was okay) I don't expect historical accuracy from this show, so I expect liberties, but I would like to see the cast interact with each other and the world more, I felt this episode had a better balance of that.
  5. I enjoyed this, liking the new cast, though like others I was expecting more of a time jump. I think last season was a bit heavy on seriousness at times, and liked to see a bit of a lighter side to the Queen. Elizabeth and Philip breakfast and jokes about the painting "one good eye between them" and the show of affection, reminded me of season 1 CF & MS, rather than last season strained marriage. I also thought they did a good job of establishing everyone in the new roles, so recognize who they were.

    S03.E07: Athena Begins

    I had exactly same thought I was waiting for ghost Emmet to be watching in the sidelines! The episode was fine, agree that Athena doing everything herself can be a bit tiring. I did like the flashbacks though. Yes this! I had those thoughts too. I was thinking what he's done in his life should count towards something, I would hope he wouldn't get too harsh a sentence.
  7. It was good when Rebecca told Jack not to make Randall choose, but I also wonder if part of it was guilt about denying Randall a black role model with his father William. Malik does look a bit young, but I think part of that is being so used to shows/films using buff 20+ year olds playing teenagers! I'm fine with him and Deja, I thought it was sweet that their day made her remember her day out with mom and grandma. I do agree though that has to be some serious discussions about how the dating works with his kid, Deja needs to know Janelle is his priority and he can't be expecting her to step into any mothering role. Also as Janelle gets older need to be clear on what Deja's relationship will be to her, will she be "aunt" Deja, or will she just see her occasionally
  8. Even putting the whole murder thing aside, Pat still isn't entitled to date Nicole because he helped her out. Nicole did care about him, but doesn't mean she wanted to date him and for Pat to go off on her because she said no is huge red flags. Also totally agree that it wasn't necessarily that Pat was such a nice guy that it was surprise that he was the villain, but so many tropes in tv/film that would make him the good guy really.

    S03.E06: Monsters

    I feel if they were to go ahead with siding with Buck, then he should have noticed the cut and then told the paramedic. That way he could show that he was being careful and responsible even when accidents happened. Instead he didn't notice and thought blood belonged to victim and was dismissing paramedic's concern at first. Which just proves Bobby's point.

    One thing that has been annoying me with Maddie is how she answers the 911 calls sometimes. I've noticed it a few times where someone calls with a shocking incident, like the windshield man and her first response is "i'm sorry what!", its like I get they are trying to show her surprise but it's not very professional or helpful! I'm glad they aren't dragging out the Maddie secretly stalking the woman. I was surprised at Chim's reaction and the comparison to what Maddie's husband to him. It's not something I would have thought about but I was glad he called her on it. Yay for Buck and Eddie back to being friends! I think after the strong start to the season and intensity of tsunami, some of the episodes that have followed have been a bit of a let down, particularly with some of the Buck stuff. Still fun episodes but those first few episodes are hard to top.
  11. Just watched this episode. Wow I thought something was off with Pat but didn't think he was storm man! Early on, I didn't like how he undermined Nicole encouraging Dion to use his powers with the basketball and I thought he may be power envy when he said everyone got superpowers. But this episode withh his entitlement to expect something from Nicole because he was playing "nice guy", I hoped they weren't going to have her come around and go out with him, so it was a good surprise to have him the villain!
  12. Well, they were close friends even if April didn't know who she really was, and I'm sure after Beth-Ann would have told April about Rob's other affairs and they'd bond over both being duped. Also I don't know about remorse, but April did seem concerned about the cancer I'm good with them raising kid together, I think Beth-Ann would enjoy mothering but also having more freedom and working together as a team with April rather than having dinner on table. And I suppose she could have found another man but I think its good she found happiness in her own way without relying on man. The three crossing deaths was so well done. THough one thing is I didn't catch what Beth-An mouthed to Rob before he died? I like the epilogue of them handing keys over too.
  13. I had similar ideas, though I was thinking Beth Ann will end up killing Ralph and frame Rob for the crime, letting him spend life in jail as punishment for all he did. Think maybe her and April will end up staying friends and raising baby together. I think maybe assisted suicide with Karl too, which would be sad, I really like that him and Simone ended up being very supportive of each other. I would also guess Taylor kills Jade in self defense. As soon as I saw the first flashback I knew it would end up with Rob's misstress leving the gate unlocked, what a scumbag to blame Beth and make her think she was responsible. I agree confronting Jade in car probably not the best idea, but maybe lucky Eli didn't do it in house where nobody would be around to help him if he got attacked.
  14. I think it fits, particularly with last episode. It wasn't Randall going out of his way to break the rules or to be an individual, I think he did it specifically to impress the new teacher (who he had clearly researched!). He is in a very white school and I saw it as again him trying to fit in with his black identity and thought he and new teacher could bond over it. Randall doesn't care about air jordans but he thought his teacher would (didn't he say something about the teacher supporting Basketball team)/
  15. I liked a lot of this episode. Nicky and therapist at the start were really good, I like that he put Jack's picture on his fridge too. I'm glad Randall didn't fire Jae Won, I also thought it was fun that his "proposal" he wanted to talk about was a marriage one, I wasn't expecting that. As for the open door policy for one day a week I don't think there is anything wrong with that, though with some provisos, firstly Randall taking note of these issues is good, but he shouldn't be making any promises about actually being able to change anything, because Bernice is right that he will need support else where to make some changes. Secondly they should really be having a time limit, say 15 mins with maybe flexibility to stretch to 20, but that last guy he was in there for over 40 mins, that's too much, even if he hadn't drinks arranged, he could have been having family time. The sibling bonding was all really good, I liked Kevin coming to Randall's aid and Tess and Deja's talk. As for Kate I thought she handled Toby's news a lot better than she would have in earlier seasons, she was just a bit thrown and had to take some time to herself, nothing wrong with that. I like the friendship she is developing with neighbour too.
