Episode 20: Ice Queen
While I've always loved NCIS I never saw JAG so I didn't know there was even a prequel to NCIS so watching this for the first time, and being someone who found Kate irritating as all hell, it surprises me how horrid of a person Viv is! 5 minutes in and I pause it just to write this.
She's already been rude to her boss, rude to her coworkers and rude to secondary victims (the boy scout instructor guy). Yes maybe he should be setting an example but not everyone can handle sites and calling him weak in front of people isn't exactly a good example either.
Wow she actually has no redeeming qualities. I have to wonder why the writers wrote her like this unless they had NO intention of keeping her on. And her acting was horrible ,especially regarding the dead brother. When she was 'joking' with Tony and that fake crying was beyond unbelievable and then the whole overreacting thing when they arrested the terrorist who indirectly killed her brother.
I also found the arrest at the end a bit preposterous. They have no real evidence against him besides the fact he was in her car (ok that places him in the car but not exactly when) and that he wrote his brothers number on a napkin. And that's when they choose to read him his rights? "Yeah I wrote his number down" "OMG you're under arrest!" And once again Viv getting all up in his face. Just wow.
I am very glad she was not in the show!
This is a good episode though, I enjoyed it and it made me want to start watching Jag. The cast of Jag seem fun.
Episode 21: Meltdown
Well I just realised the name and how the fudge is Vivian related to The Blake Lively! Especially with Vivians lack of acting skills.
"I almost blew it" Seriously. Why was she even there. If she was able to compartmentalise and not be so obsessed then yes bring her along but she was over the top crazy and irrational about this man. Why was she there. Especially in a capacity like that opposed to a sniper at a distance. Although I wouldn't trust her with a weapon like that either.
