Tonight was the last episode of Castle for the season. Spoilers below the cut… (more…)

One day I will finally write the post about my huge honking love affair with Farscape. I love (still) that show far more than it probably deserved, for a variety of reasons.

One of those reasons, I have to say, is the awesomeness that is Claudia Black. And, out of nowhere, she turned up on NCIS this week! (Yes, I’m still watching; no, I’m not liking it.) My friends were an enormous disappointment when it came to squee-ing with me over this, so I throw myself on the mercy of the internet. (Spoilers for this week’s NCIS and season 2 of Farscape below…) (more…)

So… NCIS and I are going on a little break. I may occasionally tune in, just to keep tabs on Ziva, but I have officially stopped caring.

For anyone who’s curious, Mother’s Day was the episode that broke the camel’s back. I… don’t even know what to do with that episode. And I realised I couldn’t even bring myself to rant about it. It’s just not worth it right now, the writing is that bad.

And, to top it all off, it turns out that I’ve spent months looking for something that’s not even there. After the producers went to Ausiello encouraging the fans to read between the lines to draw conclusions about Jet Lag, I decided my assumption that Tony and Ziva hooked up was correct. Recently, however, Michael Weatherly has told Ausiello the following:

“The truth of what happened is probably something that can be discovered inside the episode itself,” he says. “If you really listen to what they say, I think it is pretty clear what happened: Nothing.”

You hear that? It’s the sound of the kithica-shaped door slamming shut. Jet Lag and the promise of a show that would actually let its romantic leads get together was what bought this show a reprieve the last time I was about to give it the kiss-off. But clearly, I’m just delusional.

So I hereby take back all my accusations of how badly the writers are dealing with this storyline. Because clearly they’re not dealing with it at all.

I’m going to take my toys and go home for a while, and maybe spend my time catching up on Glee or The Good Wife instead.

So long, NCIS.

Two Very Special Episodes in a row… excellent… (sigh)

I’m not going to spend a lot of time talking about the plot of this episode, because it was clearly an afterthought. Simply a framework on which to hang their sermon. And I really don’t love being lectured at. So I’ll just say this was the most predictable epiosde yet. The second the younger brother stepped on screen I knew he was the killer, and nothing that came after made me doubt it in the least. I also knew well ahead of the team that the blackmail money was coming from the father. So… yeah. Really predictable. (more…)

The writers were showing off this week.

Are you letting some blonde bombshell baste your bird, Tony?

(And A+ to Ziva for alliterating in a foreign language.) Not to mention the ‘maze of maize’ and the lullabye/alibi thing. Someone is determined to get some use out of their English degree. (more…)

I liked this episode. It was fun, it wasn’t predictable, and all the twists and turns made perfect sense. (more…)

I was a little ‘meh’ about this episode. It felt like it was ramping up to something huge, and then it kinda fizzled. But then, it turns out that wet socks + cold feet = migraine + fever (I knew there was a reason I hated math) so it’s entirely possible it was me and not the episode. (Spoilers ahead…) (more…)
