  • Red a covert Tea Party supporter?

    8.0
    Red's character wears so well because he remains a man of mystery, always a protective surrogate father to Liz while appearing to have no partiality to any cause or ideology (even while supporting the FBI and the American way). But toward the end of Season 2 the writers violate Red's fascinating aura of inscrutability by having him dismiss the United Nations as children sitting around a campfire singing Kumbaya. That unfortunate political statement, at a time when Congress and Netanyahu have by their actions and words taken it to heart, unnecessarily removes the apolitical veil from Red and diminishes his character.moreless
  • A flashback episode?! Just what this show needed, NOT.

    3.0
    The Major (ep 15) has left me laughing in disbelief. For a show that drags its major mysteries along at a snails pace, a cruel joke to force us to sit through what was essentially a flashback episode.

    And as setups for flashback episodes go, this hit new levels of WTF. A judge with a stenographer (security clearance anyone?) has a one on one with Lizzie, no lawyer present, to rule on a question of national security regarding a subpeona for Cooper? Where is the lawyer presenting her arguments on the national security defence? What is Lizzie even doing in the room, let alone vomiting up her life story on issues not remotely pertaining to the legal issue at hand.

    Thankfully we were tossed a few crumbs about Tom Keane to set up next weeks episode.

    Very disappointing that the writers couldn't even come up with a believable device for this week. In fact I'm wondering where this whole Lizzie under investigation storyline is going, currently nowhere interesting. I'm not sure for how much longer James Spader can save this show, even he is starting to look a bit bored.moreless
  • Fame At Last !

    9.0
    As a UK viewer who lives in Leeds, I was thrilled to hear my hometown mentioned in S02E14 as usually only London gets mentioned. I'd love to know how this came about - if anyone knows the scriptwriter(s), maybe they could reply. Random finger on a UK map or what ?

    Anyway the episode was one of the best in this series with a good mix of drama and suspense, although of course the outcome is never in much doubt !moreless
  • HOW DID THAT GET THERE?

    8.0
    At the conclusion of "The Kenyon Family" episode, Red finds a presidential limousine hidden under the chapel complete with flags on the front of the hood and the seal of office on the door.



    GOOF #1 The NBC notes on the episode say that it's a 1968 Lincoln Continental.



    NOT !! It's a 1963 Lincoln, the same model involved in the Kennedy assassination, if not the same car. The Kennedy limo makes for a fascinating story clue. LBJ's limo does not.



    GOOF #2 When Red turns on the limo's 8-track tape an old song plays. The NBC notes say it's Sammy Davis, Jr. singing "If My Friends Could See Me Now



    NOT !! In fact, it's Bobby Darin singing "Somewhere Beyond the Sea



    Who knows what the choice of song means, but St. Petersburg, Russia, and, presumably, the secret code that Red is looking for, are somewhere over there beyond the sea.
