I hadn't watched this show since it originally aired. Unlike most TV, this show never did remedial math and if you were shown something once you were pretty much expected to remember. (Am I...

It was "Sherlock" that started the trend of putting text messages on screen instead of showing a shot of the phone. Now everybody does it.

Heigl just doesn't have the gravitas to pull this off,...

I thought the first episode was amazing, the second nearly as good. Of course the show realizes its full potential just as it's getting ready to go off the air :(

I don't think Kalinda gets killed off. I think she goes into witness protection, or maybe just disappears on her own in response to Bishop and his demands/threats.

That's because they do these entire episodes with separated groups of characters, instead of intercutting between them the way a show like Game of Thrones does. It makes the pace of the show slow...

IMO they wouldn't have needed an actual pharmacist to create sugar pills. I think those were a something to actively shove her into a manic phase.

Yup, same for me.



One of the many reasons I do not look forward to a world where all TV is internet-based. We'll end up paying for bandwidth instead of cable. Well, that and the unskippable...

I love how this show can bring back a recurring character we haven't seen in a while (IIRC), and yet she was so simply and memorably defined from earlier seasons that she was instantly recognizable. ...

I still can't get past the idea of outfits like CBS wanting you to pay for a subscription and having (probably non-skippable) ads. No thanks.

This was one of the most emotionally satisfying episodes of the show for me in a long time. Everybody back together, no missed connections. All of our people made it out. And guess who is back! ...

The fake True Detective show (and the the after-show a la Talking Dead) totally cracked me up.

I think the fact that so many noteworthy actors want to be on this show -- which, I've heard, pays relatively average rates for guest stars -- says volumes about the writing. Good actors want to be...

I agree with you.

Consider Dougal's decision to marry Jaime to Claire in light of what we learned in The Gathering about the succession to Colum's seat.

It's worth remembering that at many places in this era, alcohol was the only thing to drink. There was no pasteurization yet, and in many places the water was deemed unsafe. So she's probably...
