  1. Finally finished binging. For those who were suspicious of Roland being involved, didn't Hays have the short scene ordering a check on all Roland's credit card use, phone records etc.? Maybe that was one way they had been thinking of going with the story. It kind of seemed like they were going that way with some conversations with the former prosecutor or whoever that higher up was that gave the little speech to Hays when he got brought back in to work the case in 1990. Seemed to be some conversations throughout the series that someone was covering up. So maybe Roland being involved would have been part of that storyline. But by the end, the only covering up seemed to be coming from Hoyt and his crew. I wondered if they changed their original story along the way because they couldn't get it to work? The sad story of Julie's death backed up by the headstone date only works before the date on the headstone has passed. If the fingerprints had turned up after they would know that was a lie. Two things really bugged me. The fact that all these people were killed to protect a crazy rich lady's fantasy, and I'm only half counting the collateral damages that Woodard inflicted due to being dragged into the story, are a lot harder to believe than if there was some kind of high level corruption the prosecutor and/or mayor, and some police were in on. How long can you really keep a growing kid locked into a house without anybody knowing. What if she got sick etc.? Anyway, living in a dark house for all those years. Seems like she would have turned crazy and she ended up seeming normal looking when Hays met her. ETA that all that Elisa story seemed to go nowhere either. She seemed to imply some type of coverup. And to have evidence she would refer to. But who she was going after never became clear. That was a lot of time spent on her parts that never seemed to matter in the end. The other is, 1990 ends with Roland killing Harris, and both Roland/Harris burying the body etc. There is no way that is not murder. Harris could certainly be cleared by self defense of any attempts at saving himself. That was a violent beating (which is always amazing how much people can take in tv life, including Roland after he was beat up in the bar including with bats, and doesn't look much worse for wear when he meets his first dog friend) which Hays and Roland would also have repercussions for especially considering the higher ups had already closed the case. But murder, and hiding the body is much worse. They never talk again, and this murder must eat at them all those years. Yet Roland forgives all in 2015 and does a complete 180 to even going to stay over a few nights a week at Hays house. And, I guess Hays and Roland weren't worried that all their digging could also uncover their covered up murder. And they would go to jail. All that risk just to find out where Julie ended up? And, Roland never finds out where Julie ended up, since Hays "forgot". If it wasn't for the good, interesting acting, I wouldn't have kept watching. It wasn't for the storyline, that's for sure.
  2. I tried to watch the recording of the finale but couldn't generate enough energy/interest after stopping watching when they got to 10 and I still didn't care that much about anyone. Very meh season and it seems like it is going a little bit like one ok season, one meh season, one ok season, one meh season. I still love the blinds and seeing/hearing all the hopeful contestants. It's just a lot to keep that interest going week after week. Sometime in the Knockouts it either becomes a season I feel like watching, or ends up being a season I can only maintain just barely enough interest to check here to see what is going on. Here's hoping next season will be good. It will be kind of interesting to see who is going to get more words in between Kelly and JHud.
  3. I didn't see anything new from the Voice charting on iTunes. I don't know if it is just me or tptb are blocking that info or no one charted??
  4. I'm just not a fan of these set ups that benefit some people more than others, like the first people singing on the teams get longer for fans to vote than the people going last on a team. Or the fan voting system that favors the east time zone over every other zone. Great way to be inclusive. And agree, if they're going to make changes, they should be for the better.

    Didn't expect that death. And wonder what the cell phone will reveal. Looks like a good season so far.
  6. I don't remember seeing so many 1 and 2 chair turns on the teams before. Alicia is getting the most 3 and 4 chair turns so far this season.
  7. Kelly is a fun addition; always energetic and funny. With Blake and her on one end though, it almost makes Adam seem like an afterthought. There's too much energy at the other end of the chairs. I think he could get what he wanted easier before Kelly. I hope the contestants get better. They just don't seem to be standing out compared to prior years.
  8. I am enjoying how much I am changing my mind who drew the dicks. Since Dylan flat out lied about the license plate holder, and Shapiro about the *slashed* tire it could go either way. But, just like a lot of crime shows, a ton of coincidences don't end up having to do anything with the crime under consideration, although everyone, or maybe the audience, tries to get them all to fit. The voice mail would be really useful. So would the security camera footage from other parts of campus to show which kids were actually on campus. e.g. what was Alex doing their on a teacher duty day? Which other students were there? Likely someone was a witness.
  9. I am among the Walt/Vic couldn't watch, eye rolling, ickier than I imagined, including the open would sex. Agree with those who got the paternal vibe from Walt to Vic, which given how pushy/controlling her own father was, seemed something that might feed into Vic's "attraction" to Walt. Heck, Walt was more paternal to Vic than he was to Cady. I am very thankful the series didn't quite end with their scenes. I could see Henry enjoying his new job. He is a helper as much as Cady. He was so much glue to help tie so many parts together although its true that he was always in one potential life ending jam after another, lol. I came to not dislike Nighthorse. He cut corners but not for all the things Walt thought he did. And I think he had the right goals in mind even if he thought the ends justified the means at times. But not really, as far as I could tell, in anything except finances, e.g. no murder, etc. And I really like the way Mathias developed into helping out while still keeping the edge and mistrust that kind of seems necessary. I loved Cady/Zach. Don't really see her giving up her future to run for sheriff, and why Walt would try to saddle her with a job which so obviously she is not emotionally or otherwise fit for, makes me wonder how much he really loves her after all. He has always been kind of patronizing of what she wants, and even here saddles her with something he wants. In the end, as through the series, Cady is one of the characters that never really progressed. Always looked like a deer in the headlights because everything she started, ended up with a twist that was always too much for her to solve effectively. At least she got Zach in the end, but she might even ruin that if she ends up winning the sheriff job. And that is how all her choices seem to end for her. I'll miss the scenery too, and the music. All in all, it was fun to watch and mostly enjoyable or interesting interactions among all the characters. ETA: I particularly loved the title for this, as the last episode in the series too.
  10. Agree it really seemed off for Walt especially; Cady is such a bleeding heart that wants to help, that often seems to obscure her better judgement/lawyer training, but Walt?? He really does seem to need to retire. I have to say that I have never really liked Vic since Season 1. Too possessive of Walt from the beginning and too easy for her to run over the law to get what she wants etc. But, she has had the best scenes this season and hit them out of the park, with the miscarriage and trying to figure herself out afterwards. She looks like she is changing who she thought she was, including being open/ready? to be a mom. I liked the part with Vic and Walt's horse and how it came back to her when she kind of gave up.
  11. At least there was almost no Walt/Vic romance to be distracted by.
  12. You would think that it would have high priority considering the same type vehicle ran Nighthorse and Henry off the road.
  13. Walt, Walt, Walt.... Why doesn't he put gloves on both hands when he is working on crime scene evidence? Yes, it is time for you to retire. Although no one looks good enough to fill the sheriff's shoes ever since Branch is gone. I'm sorry but Walt looks old and worn out far from someone who would be happy with Vic long, and vice versa. So it is irritating to have their potential romance shoved in my face all the time. Cady, Cady, Cady..... So well-meaning but boy can she pick the most emotionally-charged cases to work on. Between her and the schoolteacher you would think they would know better than try to take any child, but especially a Rez child, away from its parents. With that teacher's back story, I don't see how she wouldn't understand this either. There has to be other options to give to the parents to help their child. Thankfully, Henry, Mathias, and Nighthorse are still around for some balance, and upward character development. And, it is kind of nice how they are tying up some loose threads and bringing some characters from other seasons back. I hope something good happens for Zach. He is an interesting character. I wonder who the motor mouth is. Malachi is more talkative than Darius but doesn't seem to be in the motor mouth category.
  14. I'm not a Vic fan but this was a pretty well written and acted episode and seemed realistically portrayed. It showed Vic in a different light and the acting was good. Really enjoyed Henry being the quipster. And Jacob offering Henry a Red Vine or two because the trip to Cheyenne was going to be long, haha. Even funnier was Henry saying he was a Twizzler guy. The worst part of this season is that I am focusing a lot of attention on hoping that the show doesn't go down the Vic/Walt romance trail. I could not stand that, and really wish I didn't have to spend so much time hoping the next scenes will not show them getting together. If they have to go that route please make it the very last episode to reduce the time I have have to gag. And the many times already mentioned that Walt is out of it - him saying that the baby actually saved her life, does not seem that comforting to to say to someone in the throes of grief over losing their baby, given that most parents would rather of had the baby live than them.

    Bosch

    I was happy that Bosch's mom's murder was over, it was a satisfying end. So I'm not really happy about it re-opening and I doubt I am going to be as satisfied the way it ends up this time. I have liked the series, but it has crossed the line this last few episodes to make Bosch very unlikeable. The level Bosch has become holier than thou breaking rules while demanding everyone else follow them and verbally (and sometimes physically) attacking all other people and shutting them out when they don't follow rules has become over the top. Yes he is in that direction but he needs to get over himself. And demanding everyone no matter who they are including e.g. the chief, Jerry, Jimmy, everyone really, to go out on the limb for him no matter what he wants, what trouble it will cause, and what rules he has broken is a farce. Who would put up with it to this extent and for this long? It is pushing me to not want to watch if he doesn't get some redeeming personality traits, I don't care how many murders he solves, he is cheating, lying, breaking laws etc. to do so, it just doesn't work.
