  • A pretty boring filler episode.

  • interesting episode???

    i have to quite watching it....
  • Silver Wings

    Obviously they were not actually going to let the execution go through, a CBS show would not do that, but it was still an interesting episode, albeit the predictable ending and killer reveal.
  • Alone again! Naturally!

    This was a pretty OK episode but nothing to rave about.

    A fairly straightforward case and "sting" operation got the culprit in the end and the twist being that it wasn't the obvious "guilty husband" but his new wife, who plotted to remove her predecessor.

    I'm still getting zero chemistry in the new series and wonder, given all the cancellation rumours online, if they've just thrown in the towel and are going though the motions, 'till the inevitable end.

    Only Wylie, in the new squad comes over "naturally" with Fischer and Abbot both dull as dishwater.

    Again, this week, Jane is left alone on his couch with Lisbon off on yet another date with Pike. This scene and the early one with Lisbon arriving by Cab were, I believe, being orchestrated to set up a long awaited "Jisbon" pairing by end of season.

    Anyone else notice that Jane was wearing the wooly socks Lisbon got him?

    The evidence is clear but no one seems to be looking!!!

    This, again, seems to indicate the shows writers/producers are getting ready to pull the plug. Very sad, even if the fans get the romantic finish they have wanted for a very long time.

    Indicative of this is that Bruno Heller to all intents and purposes, makes no new contribution to the show, concentrating on his new project "Gotham". I really don't expect much from that as "Gotham" without the Caped Crusader simply can't work IMHO.

    What I also notice of late is the lack of fan reviews and a mere 34 ratings for this episode.

    If the fans can't be bothered, why should the producers?

    I. for one, will sorely miss this show if it does indeed die this year.moreless
