Then Joe and Ryan will pull a 3:10 to Yuma kind of thing...

Hannibal helped Clarice find a killer without having to be let out.

Did anyone catch Aaron Ashmore's hilarious performance on Warehouse 13 this week? I didn't know she had it in him.

Not quite.

He had a quid quo pro that got him out of his really secure cell and into one he could escape from in return for the cooperation. So, while he wasn't let out of prison, he was let out of a cell he wouldn't have otherwise escaped from.

Just watched all 15 episodes off the DVR. It was entertaining, but predictable and repetitive. Almost every episode I could expect Ryan to end up alone in a dark place and end up just a little late or injured. It got a little old. The cult followers were rather silly. The Joe and Clair resurrection explanations were forced and unbelievable. How people can take that amount of brutality and then seemingly recover within hours or days is miraculous. The villains were just a little too weird. Still, I like many of the characters including Kevin Bacon - although I have to admit that he really doesn't have the body or mannerisms of a "tough guy." He looks a little - dare I say - feminine and weak with weapons. But, it's good enough for me to pick up again next year. I'll be interested to see if the writers can step it up a little and make it a little more interesting and unpredictable.

That's the beauty of this series... It doesn't matter!
If a character dies, next season they may decide they faked it.

Or, say a character is on the verge of getting offed. Not to worry, in two more episodes they'll likely be running things.

Either way, you will probably decide you don't actuality care.


Personally, I'm looking forward to watching Ryan battle Mikes and the twins mom's love child (after she reveals she faked her death to free the twins to follow their own path).

I have kind of been watching this show in the background. Each week I say "This is it. I'm done." Then I watch another week. Well, I have had enough of the Three Stooges. Seriously, this show is bad on so many levels. It may be the dumbest show I have fooled myself into watching multiple episodes. It is such a shame, because I like Kevin Bacon and with better writing this show could actually be watchable.

I never deleted the series record setting from my set up, but I have yet to watch any of this season. I think the fact that yours is the first post of this season, and they're like four episodes in, says volumes!

Tell me, who's come back to life thus far?

All this season is still sitting on my DVR. It says a ton that 3 or 4 episodes in nobody has posted about it.

of course i had a co worker that even though i said i haven't watched any of this season had to blab a spoiler at me yesterday. It wasn't a shocker so i guess it wasn't that spoilerish

Tv by the numbers predicts it will get canceled.

Did I sleep through last week's episode (I think episode 4?) because I left the show when the couple placed cameras on Max's apartment, next up the guy has been shot, Max's boyfriend is the one spying on her (and new FBI mole), what happened on episode 4?

I guess that explains that email they can't explain, of course Max's guy did it and what's his end game?

I thought Max was a goner, the girl kept hitting her over and over, perhaps if she hasn't been stopped she would have been.

Did you watch both episodes that were on Monday? There were two episodes back-to-back this week... if you only tuned in for the normal 9pm time, then you probably missed a lot!

Me do not have signature.

I was honestly shocked that the thread hasn't been updated since the season started. In this case, I will look at threads to see if I am missing something or if it is a bad show. Silence speaks volumes as they say.

No one has come back to life except maybe the twin brother. The living twin now has a split personality between his normal self and his dead twin.

I wouldn't worry about the spoiler. Nobody of consequence has died. The FBI and Three Stooges are always right on top of the murderers, but somehow they escape. Honestly, I have started to cheer for the bad guys.

Yeah I didn't know there were 2 episodes back to back! oh boy I couldn't fathom what was going on, I watch it "live" so no DVR of the previous one, but now I know what happens so watching the previous ep is kind of pointless right now.

Same difference. I actually was thinking last season, when they introduced the twins, that it was one person with split personality. Eventually it became apparent that would be concept too advanced for these writers.

This show has made me kick myself for thinking I didn't have what it takes to enter the film business when I was younger. Breathing? Check. Pulse? Check. You're hired!

Thanks for saving me recording space. I'm deleting the season record schedule now.

To me. Joe was 50% of the show. He was a great villain and was funny at times. that is missing now. they need to replace that. the new villains are not interesting in the least.

There's still too much of Max, Ryan, and Mike going into a location with 20 SWAT team members and then they all split up and one of the main three gets isolated with the villain they're chasing at the time....but I think this season is better than last. I know - not a high bar to reach.....

But its still the same formla of the 3 going to a location, splitting up looking for the bad guy and they either just get away or one of them shoots them etc.

The dialogue with Mike and Ryan on the boat before the guy jumpe in the water last week was just awful. Some of the worst tv writing (dialogue) i've ever head.

I don't recall the PQ Being so pathetic on this show in the past. It is arguably as bad as NCIS this season.

Perhaps I misremembered.

Stopped watching NCIS a year now, the PQ is still awful?

Yeah this show looks really bad on those night/dark scenes.

And move over Dexter, this guy wants to kill more people than you, and he's copy-catting you.. only think missing was a face mask for the splatter. (or spatter?)

Once again - they get to the building and Mike goes one way, Ryan goes another way, and the 20 guys on the SWAT team (HRT?) go a third way.

that's literally the same plot every week. And then the bad guy is about to shoot/stab one of them and the other one shoots him at the last possible second.

The writing is so lazy.

Sometimes I think the writers have put this show on cruise control.

Judging by the ratings, it won't be back. In a related story, it won't be missed.

They're piling up on the DVR now. Don't know if I'll even bother with the rest of the season.
