Ties That Bind



This was a very predictable episode, taking it's cues right from the playbook of 'bait and switch'. I knew from the get go that Mia was working for Strausser and was purposely leading her sister Nora away from Miles and the rest of the gang and that she would some how end up with the pendant. Even though there were no surprises with regards to the plot, I still found it very enjoyable. The one thing that I really like is that Tom Neville's wife played by Kim Raver is now pushing Tom to rise up against Monroe and take over leadership. I've always though that having an actor of Giancarlo Esposito playing just a foot soldier was a waste of opportunity for the show. He is far more charismatic and scarier than David Lyons who plays Monroe. This line of leadership just never sat well with me.

Kashmir



This was a very cool episode and probably my favorite one so far this season. When I saw the title of this episode, my immediate reaction was 'Led Zeppelin'. But that's where it ended. Never in a million years would I have guessed that not only was it about their greatest song ever, but that they would somehow be able to land the song and feature it in the episode. Zep is notorious for not allowing their music to appear in movies, let along a TV show. I loved how they used the song to frame Miles scene. Very, very cool!

As for the story itself, it was very compelling and very touching with the gang trapped in an underground subway tunnel, losing air and hallucinating, which triggers things that they think they are seeing. The scene with Charlie and her father was very good.

Nobody's Fault But Mine




Awesome episode! Now that's how to do it. I was pretty sure that Miles was going to finally kill Monroe. I knew from the beginning that with all the flashbacks of them as kids and adults that their paths would cross at the end, culminating in a fight to the death between the two. Well, it's just a fight. No death. But I liked the way the episode ends when the gang escapes only to stand face to face with a Helicopter about to fire on them. I feel stupid for not figuring out where the Militia Logo came from. FYI, it refers to Miles/Monroe. D'oh!!

You realize that it will be almost 4 months since the last new episode aired? The show doesn't return until March 25, 2013. How's that for tanking a show that had a lot of momentum during it's initial run? I'm pretty sure that most people assume this was canceled because there was no announcement that it was going on such a long hiatus and there hasn't been any promos of its return. THIS is not how to handle a show that you want to survive.

I saw the ad last night for that. That's exactly what I thought. First, I thought this was cancelled. Second... how many months?

Do they not learn from history? I would be surprised this remained on the air. I just think that gap of time, people move on.

I can easily say that most people will have moved on. They are going to have to do some serious heavy promotion because this is not how to keep a brand name alive. I can't believe these people get paid the big bucks that they do.

The Stand



Welcome back Revolution! Four and a half long ass months. Not cool. So, was it worth the wait getting to start the second half of season 1? Yup. They've changed the playing field by changing the objective now. Killing off Danny wasn't shocking at all. I saw it coming a mile away. They needed to give Charlie a goal that was and is very personal. Sure, rescuing him was a goal in itself, but it was motivated by revenge, which is something I never saw in the character regarding the death of her father. But with Danny getting mowed down in front of her own eyes, it is ON now.

Phuck that kind of gap.

I could love the show, and I'm gonna forget or not care.

Hope you didn't lose to much audience.

I wouldn't be all that surprised that the ratings took a HUGE hit. Personally, I didn't see one commercial or print AD hyping it's return. So I imagine most of america just assumed it was already cancelled.

Why they don't learn. There was sooooo much discussion about this before with other shows that tried to pull that.

Ghost




Okay, now we are getting somewhere. We now know exactly who is responsible for the Blackout, that being Randall. Up till now it was kind of implied that Randall was behind this. What we see here is that he is the one that gave the order to 'execute'. We don't actually see him "pulling the trigger" if you will, but we do see that there is another piece of the puzzle and it's called the 'Tower'. I think we will get a more definitive answer in the next episode. That is if the writers don't decide to drag it out for a few more episodes or even worse, drag it all the way to the cliffhanger.
