  • Wow is right

    To: Blows my mind

    To each his/her own. I happen to watch this show for the love story and not anything else and that is my preference. I love the epic love story and this show is getting it's point across on that. I don't like undead shows or action figure shows, so this show is right up my alley. Again, my preference. And to let you know, not women want or need the same things in life or else we would be pretty boring. I reiterate, I love this show.

    I loved this episode and I give it a 10+moreless
  • WOW?!

    Great episode and good with the season progression that the lens didn't steam up too much too early but also they didn't try to keep things going too long..... That gets really annoying. To help the show, it's a fantastic metaphor for life's challenges to mirror their relationship overcoming huge odds and difficulties to survive. There isn't really any question of Cat and Vincent's feelings for each other but he's conflicted by his terrible past and she loves him but can't quite grasp just how difficult it will become to manage their time and her life outside of her relationship. I really enjoy the show. I like that there's enough science to make the plot acceptable, gets a little rusty towards the end of the season but a good package all in all! Well done team!moreless
  • Blows my mind...

    It really blows my mind how many positive reviews there are for this show. Honestly... if you ignore their 'chemistry,' what is there to this show? Poor writing, ridiculous plot lines, bad characterisation... it's totally unrealistic (and that's even after I've suspended disbelief). No cop would act the way she does. And it's kind of creepy (and unexplained) that he kept tabs on her after randomly rescuing her nine years before. None of this makes sense. The whole love at first sight thing is particularly annoying, along with the level of rescuing a supposedly strong, independent detective needs. Why is is that people think this is what women want? There is no depth to the relationship at all! I've only watched the first minute or so of this episode and you know what? It's not original - they've taken a line from Joss Whedon (BTVS) by having him dream that he starts to turn all beastly when they're getting intimate. There seems to be very little originality here, and that is so disappointing for me because the concept had such potential. Oh well. Can't have them all.

    ... I am half way through the episode and have to say that I do like the new guy somewhat. Also - I want it to turn out that Vincent is a bad guy and has been lying to her this whole time and she's been doing all of this REEEALLY unethical stuff for no good reason. Because then, like any fairy tale, there'd be a significant moral lesson. End rant.moreless
  • No other show

    Could ever keep me from watching! I used to watch the first 80"s version BATB but this one is one of a kind. Great story plot. Yeah can be cheesy but who cares I'm a hopeless romantic and only this show can increase my "feel good hormone"... The chemistry between KK & JR are real on and off, which could mean that these two are really good at what they do. They evoke the feelings and a lot of us can relate from what the characters are going episode leaves me wanting more and more. The last episode "any means possible" just couldn't explain my can't keep it out of my head and have been watching the epi over and over again. Day in, day out I just want it to be thursdays goodness there's a rerun every tuesday @ 9 @CW...moreless
  • Absolutely Amazing!!!

    There is no other show like this one! It's absolutely amazing! From the writers choosing to not do the will-they-won't-they, to the undeniable chemistry between Jay & Kristin, to the captivating love story, the intensity of the plot could go on!! This show is my favourite by far. If you are not watching, you should. Words can not describe Jay and Kristen's on screen presence. And Jay's voice, facial expressions have you falling in love with Vincent before you know what hit you. This is a MUST watch show!!!moreless

    • J.T.: (Catherine walks in) Hey. Look who got her own house key. Who knew?
      Vincent: Uh, what's going on?
      Catherine: Not much. Just in the neighborhood.
      J.T.: You're seriously going with that?

    • Catherine: Vincent, I'm not gonna let anything happen to you.
      Vincent: Catherine, you can only do so much. And now, let's face it, with this task force, things aren't gonna end up so well for me. I don't wanna break your heart.
      Catherine: The only thing that would break my heart is looking back on my life and wishing that I had done things differently. And, as far as the rest of the world goes, if we're together, we can overcome anything. Vincent, whoever that girl was, she wasn't me. And whatever your fears are, they aren't mine.

    • Catherine: If we find the guy who fled the scene we find the guy who can prove that you are a hero. (Vincent reaches for Catherine's hand but she pulls away) I'm sorry.
      Vincent: Uh, no, I got it. I probably should have told you, uh, before things got this far. I just, I didn't know how, you know? I just can't handle the fact that you might pull away or you might hate me as much as I hate myself right now.
      Catherine: How could I ever hate you? It would be like hating a part of myself.

    • J.T.: So? How did it go?
      Vincent: Uh, it didn't.
      J.T.: What? I just spent three hours in my office throwing pencils at the ceiling. Even I get laid by the twenty-third date.

    • Catherine: Vincent, I am trying to help you. You keep pulling back because of what? Some headline?
      Vincent: No, I keep pulling back because I don't wanna hurt you. This will sound strange, but I had this dream. We were starting up and it was good, it was great. But I began to change and uh...
      Catherine: No, it was, it was a nightmare.
      Vincent: No. Cause nightmares you wake up from.

    • Vincent: Okay, two years ago I was with a woman and, uh, we were getting close and my adrenalin kicked in. I tried to fight, I did, but I couldn't stop from changing.
      Catherine: Okay. What happened? Did you...did you kill her?
      Vincent: No. But only because she got away.
      Catherine: Vincent, have always been able to control yourself with me.
      Vincent : Then I've been putting up a good front. You know, the truth is, I've never felt so out of control than when I do when I'm with you.
