SERIES PREMIERE REVIEW: The Finder “An Orphan Walks Into A Bar” S1 E1

I guess you can’t really call this show the pilot since the pilot really aired last season.  But this episode officially kicked off the new series The Finder.

(Insert HUGE sigh here.)  I feel like I am being really negative so far this mid season.  I had to watch this episode 3 times because the two other times I tried to watch it, I fell asleep.  I really thought this was a boring case and I had very little interest in it. It surprised me considering how much I enjoyed the pilot episode last spring.  I know many Bones fans who watched The Finder last spring and hated it.  I wasn’t one of them.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  So you can appreciate my disappointment in this episode.  I tell you one thing, if this was the pilot episode last season, I might not have tuned in again.   But I will….especially since Sweets is on next week.

Right off the bat, the cast is strong.  Geoff Stults is great as former military man Walter Sherman, aka The Finder.  Walter has some brain damage from his time in the military but it has made him keely astute in locating people if not very socially awkward.  I’m glad the show revisited that issue because quite frankly, I forgot about it.  Although I’m not sure why he needs to have brain damage to be the way he is.  Can’t he just be that way?  If the idea is to show Walter as a more layered character than simply a dorky wacko, I guess I can go with that but I need more.  Hopefully we will get it.

Michael Clarke Duncan plays Walter’s partner and BFF, Leo.  The episode gave the impression that Walter basically saved Leo’s life.  Not in the literal sense but in the “my-ass-is-not-in-jail-because-of-you” sense.  Leo was telling Isabel about how Walter saved him from killing a man, therefore he owes him his life and would do anything for him.  Can you smell bromance?  I can!!!!  I am already looking forward to the backstory on their relationship and the story that Leo is referencing.

As for Isabel (played by Mercedes Mashon) she is a US Marshall who works with Walter and Leo although she isn’t always happy with the way Walter goes about doing his job.  I already like her much better than Saffron Burrows character and she fits the mold nicely.  Plus it’s always good to have some sort of legal enforcer working with you to keep you in line!

The only character that didn’t work for me at all was Willa (played by Maddie Hanson.)  I don’t understand what the point of her character is.  She’s staying with Walter and Leo in a trailer outside the bar and she’s trying to keep her nose clean, at least that’s the message she is trying to convey to her parole officer.  What she is ACTUALLY doing, is a whole other story.  She seems to be using Walter and Leo’s generosity to steal from them with some dumb sidekick I hope we never have to see again.  Leo is trying to see the good in her while Walter, at this point, sees nothing but someone suspicious and he has his eye on her.  So they have this grouchy, I-Hate-Life teenager living with them who is plotting to steal from them.  Like I said, don’t see the point to this at all and wish she would go away because I could care less about her.

As I mentioned before, the case was boring to me.  Maybe part of the reason why it was boring was because sometimes, they spoke so fast and so technically about what was going on, I couldn’t follow.  When Walter was explaining to Leo and Willa about the “Microwave Ovens” and how that impacted his flight, he explained it so quickly and garbled that he might as well have had marbles in his mouth.  My husband and I had to rewind that scene three times to understand what he was trying to say.  Usually if one of us missed something or didn’t follow, the other did and explains it.  But we’ve never had a situation where we both didn’t understand so many times.  Hey, it still could have been our fault…too many Sam Adams or what not…but I think the dialogue can be more clear.  There were many times I felt that they were speaking so quickly that it lost me….and this is coming from someone who has which show in their top 5 all time favorite, best shows on TV?   That would be The West Wing.   I figured if I could follow the West Wing, I can follow any show.

Am I going to watch The Finder again?   Yes.  Will I rush to make sure I watch it?   No.  But I will watch it.  Maybe it was this one episode and I’ll chalk it up to maybe I wasn’t 100% into it vs. the show’s issues…to be fair…but I am giving it another shot.  I think it can be a very light and humerous show with some solid drama mixed in.  But we’ll see.

RECAP & REVIEW: Grey’s Anatomy “Suddenly” S8 E10

I finally caught up with Grey’s.  I literally watched 6 episodes last night including last night’s “Suddenly” episode.  Yes there are lots of things that happened but I don’t have 5,000 words to recap 6 episodes so I only want to focus on two storylines…Meredith and Teddy & Henry.

Teddy and Henry

What would you have done and what is the right thing to do?  That’s really the question hanging over both episodes of “Suddenly” and the previous “Dark Was The Night.”  Let’s set this up.  Henry was rushed to the hospital after puking up blood.  It wasn’t looking good but everyone felt, he would be ok.  Teddy was called away to a brutal surgery of a woman whose heart was literally tearing to shreds because of a mistake made by Jackson and by extension Callie.  Teddy was the only one who could save this woman’s life.  Henry had to go into surgery and Teddy insisted that Cristina be the one to do.  To not freak her out, Owen, Bailey, and Chief Webber (sorry, but he will always be the chief to me) decide they aren’t going to tell Cristina who the patient is so it wouldn’t frazzle her.  Cristina performs the procedure but a complication erupts and she realizes that the damage was already done and this man has no change to survive.  The chief is frantically trying to save him while Lexie starts to cry (she also knows it’s Henry.)  Cristina can’t understand why the chief is doing this considering the situation.  She calls time of death and Owen and Bailey run in to see what was going on.  Everyone is devastated and Cristina is completely clueless as to why everyone is reacting this way.  Owen pulls her aside and finally tells her who the patient was.   Understandably, Cristina loses it and freaks out on Owen.

Cut to Teddy’s surgery.  The surgery is very complicated and is taking a long time.  Teddy needs to focus and stay with patient or she will die.  Owen decides not to tell her about Henry because it could compromise the life of the patient on the table.  April is sent in to make sure Teddy doesn’t check on the status of Henry and April is told what happened.  So April has to stand next to Teddy and pretend like she doesn’t know.  After a while, once Teddy knows Cristina is done with Henry’s surgery, she requests her in for the final part of the surgery (the trickiest) and she only wants Cristina.  So Owen tells Cristina that she has to go in and finish Teddy’s surgery with her.  Cristina wants no part of this once she realizes that Teddy hasn’t been told.  But she has to go in and she pulls it together just enough to get through the surgery with Teddy.  It is excruciating to watch Cristina being forced to work with Teddy knowing what she knows and Teddy not having a clue.  In the end, the surgery is a success and as soon as they are finished, Cristina pulls Teddy aside privately, and gives her the news that Henry didn’t survive the surgery.

I revert back to my original question…what would you have done and what is the right thing to do?   Did Owen make the right call by not telling Teddy?  Did Owen handle the situation properly with April and Cristina?  Did Owen make the best decision he could with an impossible situation?   In my opinion, yes and no.   I think Owen made the right call by not telling Teddy right away.  I don’t know how long it was between the time Henry died and the completion of her surgery.  But I thought Owen 100% right when he said that he can’t risk the life of a patient who still has a fighting chance.  Her best chance of survival is a focused Teddy.   So telling Teddy this news in the middle of a life or death surgery would have been wrong and it could have risked the life of the patient, which is always their number one concern.  Not to mention, it would have compounded an already difficult situation with the family of the woman in surgery.   Basically, the woman was in to repair her back due to scoliosis, and Jackson took the lead while Callie observed.  Jackson used the wrong screw and her vertebrae couldn’t hold it and that’s what was destroying her heart.  This woman almost died because Jackson made a mistake and Callie wasn’t paying attention.  If you added to the fact that you informed her heart surgeon that her husband just died during the surgery???  LAWSUIT!!!!   Of course that’s second to the woman’s life but it’s still a factor.

Where I thought Owen was wrong, was putting people in the position of having to lie to Teddy.  If anything, he should have been in there with her, not April.  It wasn’t fair to put April in that position.  But I also understand why he would want someone in there who knew the situation and could distract Teddy and keep her focused on the case.   But it should have been Owen, not April.

I’m torn on how I feel about Cristina.  On one hand, I think he was wrong for sending her in.  Cristina and Teddy can’t be the ONLY cardio-thorastic surgeons who could handle this.  Now, Teddy is the best and you need the best to lead this difficult case.   But there have to be several, competent, excellent surgeons that could have assisted her…it didn’t have to be Cristina.  Who was assisting Teddy when Cristina was off being a bartender for several months?   There had to be someone else.   Owen should have found a reason that Cristina couldn’t assist and find someone else.   On the other hand, it comes down to what is best for the patient.  If Cristina and Teddy as a team gives this patient the best chance for survival, then Cristina needed to be in that room.  The same logic applies here that applies to why you don’t tell Teddy…it’s in the patient’s best interest and gives them the best chance for survival.    If I had to pick one, I would say he was wrong for sending Cristina in.  With Teddy already in the room, someone else could have assisted and give the patient a chance to live.  If Teddy wasn’t the best and was just good, but Cristina was the best and they needed her, then Cristina HAS to go in.  But that wasn’t the case here.

Overall though, I think Owen made the best decisions he could considering the situation.  It was awful.  It was unimaginable.  And he had to make those decisions quickly.  So he did the best he could.  Could he have done better?   Sure.   Did he make some decisions I support….yes.  Did he make some decisions I don’t agree with…yes.  But hind sight is 20-20 and with no pressure or timelines.   The thing that bothered me the most was when he went to see Cristina after she told Teddy and all he seemed to be concerned about was the fact that he wasn’t the one to tell her and that she was going to be mad at him.  ARE YOU FOR REAL?   Shouldn’t your first concern be how Teddy is holding up?   Shouldn’t your next concern be your wife and how she is doing considering what you put her through that night?  And I’m glad Cristina called him on it and reminded him that this wasn’t about him.   But I wanted to smack him for being so selfish and juvenile.

Meredith

I don’t have a ton of things to say but I wanted to touch on one storyline.  Meredith has had a lot going on…dealing with Bailey still hating her and not trusting her, the stress of waiting to find out what was going to happen with Zola, staying away from Derek at work while still being interested in neuro, and then of course, the car accident.  Eventually Bailey and Meredith work it out and Zola is returned to Derek and Meredith even after they thought it was a lost cause.  I was very happy to see Zola back with Derek and Meredith!!!!

I couldn’t talk about last night’s episode without discussing that car accident.  It was the dumbest thing I had ever seen.  The ambulance driver tells Alex and Meredith that if they don’t get out of the car, it will basically explode if it gets hit because of all the oxygen tanks inside.   Well guess what, they got hit and they didn’t explode.  Not only did they not explode, but the injuries to them were minor.   Unless this get revisited down the road due to post accident related issues, nothing happened to Alex and Meredith.  However, the car that hit them threw everyone from the car but one girl and 3 out 6 people died, one passenger almost lost her eye, and the boy almost had his legs crushed.  It was that bad but Alex and Meredith have bumps on the head and the baby who was near death and you had to be so careful with, had no effects from the accident.  Really?  I’m not wishing something bad to happen to Meredith, Alex, or the baby, but a little realism would be nice and there was none of that here.

So what did you think of last night’s episode?  Are you sad that Henry is dead?   What did you think of the way the situation with Teddy and Cristina was handled.  Let me know!

SEASON FINALE REVIEW: Grey’s Anatomy “Unaccompanied Minor” S7 E22

We have a new chief resident, an unwanted and wanted baby on the way, a child adopted, a new mother and father, two marriages on the rocks, a new relationship forming, a relationship going to the next level, a potential rekindling of a previous relationship, a relationship ending, and friendships in turmoil.    So basically nothing happened in the 7th season finale of Grey’s this year!!

Derek and Meredith

The fallout from the news about Meredith tampering with the Alzheimer’s trial has made its way to the Chief and Derek.  At the end of the last episode, Alex, in a drunken stupor, told Owen, who is making the final decision and was just bragging about how great Meredith is, that Meredith tampered with the results of the Alzheimer’s trial.  Owen of course tells Derek who tells the Chief.   Not only is the trial ruined but they are considering firing Meredith.  Chief wants to know who Meredith tampered with and she refuses to tell him.   Her point, and I agree, is that the trial isn’t compromised as long as she doesn’t divulge who was involved with the switch.   But the Chief figures it out that it was Adele that received the benefit of the switch.   As a result he wants to suspend her vs. firing her.  Derek still can’t seem to forgive her so he is now staying at their new home that isn’t built yet.   The problem with that is, they were approved to adopt so Meredith was able to bring the baby home with her but she can’t get a hold of Derek to let him know since he won’t take her calls or return her calls.

Here is what bugs me about this whole thing.   The Chief was ready to fire Meredith.  However, once he found out that she did it to help his wife, now he’ll just suspend her to save face?   What?   If she ruined a trial and put the reputation of the hospital at risk, it shouldn’t matter who she saved.  If she should be fired, she should be fired.  Logically, you know it had to be someone she knew.  Why else would she tamper with the trial?  Not to mention, she’s right.  If no one knew who was effected by the switch, the trial still works.   But the whole situation is ridiculous because the Chief was just as guilty as Meredith here.  He let his personal feelings affect his decision-making and made a choice he shouldn’t have based on personal connection.

Cristina and Owen

This is a perfect example of why you should have conversations about having children BEFORE you get married.  Cristina is pregnant and has made it perfectly clear that she doesn’t want children.  Owen has made it perfectly clear that he wants children.  I don’t know how they thought they were going to be able to move past this since both are firmly entrenched in their view-point.

I have to say, I am on Cristina’s side here.  She was always very clear about her thoughts.  Owen thought he could change her opinions over time.  And now that she is actually pregnant, he wants her to go through with it because he knows she will change her mind about being a mother.   Could he be any more disrespectful to her and her feelings?   This isn’t the same as asking her to like one of his friends and give him a chance because once you get to know him he’s great.   This is bringing a human life into this world.   This is not a decision you enter into lightly or crossing your fingers hoping that you eventually change how you have always felt about parenthood.   And I give her credit for standing her ground about this very serious, life changing situation.  She also brought up a great point.  What if she has the baby and doesn’t change her mind and doesn’t feel any different?   How is that fair to the child?   I guess what really bothered me is that Owen never really seemed to listen to what Cristina had to say.  Every time she would try to explain how she felt and why she felt the way she did, Owen seemed to just blow her off and brush off her feelings.   That really pissed me off.  She’s your wife so whether you like what she is saying or not, you have to listen to her.  Just as she should give you the respect of listening to you.

I have no sympathy for Owen.  You knew how she felt about being a mother.  She never kept it from you and she never lied to you.   YOU just assumed you could change her mind overtime and never respected her true feelings.  So it shouldn’t shock you that she made an appointment to terminate the pregnancy.  And your solution is to kick her out?  Screw you.   I understand that you are angry and upset because it’s your child as well.  But again, this is the woman you married.  If having a child was THAT important to you, you shouldn’t have married Cristina Yang.

I never liked Cristina and Owen as a couple and never bought into them the way I did when she was with Burke.  So if they break up over this, it wouldn’t bother me at all.  In fact, I hope they do because Cristina deserves better and Owen should be with someone who can give him what he wants.

Meredith/Cristina/Alex

I don’t know how this friendship will ever be the same again.  Alex has made a lot of very self-destructive decisions over his tenure on the show but this has to be the biggest.  He wasn’t in the lead for Chief Resident so he sabotages his best friend to knock her down because he’s pissed.  Cristina was right.  There were so many times Meredith stuck by him when no one else would.  And he can disagree with what she did because there were lots of times Meredith disagreed with him, but he still should have had her back the way Meredith always had his.

This group dynamic should be very interesting moving forward and I’m curious to see how the writers are going to handle it.

Teddy/Henry/Andrew

Finally, Teddy saw what we have all seen all season long…she should be with Henry!!!!!  I was so mad at her because of the way she was handling this relationship with Henry.   She knew he was falling for her.  She’s not stupid.   But she would go to his apartment and tell him about her dates and I hated that.  While it set up and showed how good they are together and how comfortable they have become with one another, I hated how clueless she was.

But she finally woke up to not only his feelings for her, but her feelings for him.  You knew it was going to happen, it was just a matter of time!  Plus I hate all the hinting around.  She would ask if she should go so she can test to see if he really does have feelings for her.   And he doesn’t tell her to stay because he loves her and isn’t sure how she feels about him.  For gosh sake will one of you have the balls to tell the other person how you feel and just have an honest discussion?   dear Lord people!!!   But Teddy finally did and kissed Henry and told him she was falling in love with him.   Yeah!!!!

So I hope Scott Foley will be back next season and they don’t kill him!!!   Do you hear me Shonda Rhimes?   DO NOT KILL SCOTT FOLEY!!!!!

Eli and Bailey

I love these two.  I love how he doesn’t take her crap and she respects him for it.  However, I don’t think it was fair of him to push her into bringing him home when her son was there if she wasn’t ready to introduce her son to Eli yet.  Now maybe she needed that push because Bailey has always been hesitant in the relationship department since her marriage broke up but when it comes to kids, I have no problem with parents being extra cautious.  Bailey throws up her walls very fast and Eli brought up some valid points.  So valid that Bailey agreed to let him come home with her.  I just hope he respects that she may have to let their relationship move forward at her pace because she does have a son.  But I think these two are in it for the long haul because they are really great together.

Slone/Lexie/Avery

Slone and Lexie still love each other.  It’s quite obvious.  But she’s with Jackson and he’s got his life with Callie, Arizona, and the baby.  But something tells me the love story between Slone and Lexie is far from over and this episode’s interaction between them I believe was purposely done to remind us of that connection.  So we’ll see where this goes.

Alex and Lucy

Alex turned down the Africa position and Lucy ended up taking it.  So she’s leaving to do Charlie’s Angels, I mean help children in Africa and she goes to see Alex to beg her not to go.  He tells her to go to hell and she leaves.   Good riddens Lucy.

April

Dr April Kempner was named Chief Resident.  Ok I didn’t see that coming.  I hope she proves me wrong and she is fantastic.  But I would have picked Dr Jackson Avery.

A much different season finale from last year but lives were still turned upside down.  Just in a very different way.  This was a better season of Grey’s than they’ve had in a few seasons.  Still not as good as the old days, but better than it had been.  So I will be tuning in next season…especially since it may be Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo’s final season.  I don’t know how you have Grey’s Anatomy without Meredith Grey (and don’t give me Lexie because you know this show is about Meredith and her perspective on things) so I wonder if this will be a final season of Grey’s or not.  I would think not because it’s still pulling in huge ratings but you never know.   But I will be back next season to see how all these hanging storylines play out.

SEASON FINALE REVIEW: Bones “The Change in the Game” S6 E24

When Hart Hanson says “A Change in the Game” he sure wasn’t kidding!!!! That was quite a whopper of a last scene…on many levels! Angela and Hodgins had their new born son (complete with Billy Gibbons’ Michael cap) and Brennan had some pretty big news for Booth…she’s pregnant and the baby is his. Wait, what??? Back up a minute. Did Brennan just say she was pregnant with Booth’s kid? When the hell did that happen and why didn’t we get to witness at least some very very very early parts of that? Believe me I’m not complaining but I would-be lying if I didn’t mention that I was slightly disappointed. Although I’m not surprised Emily’s real life pregnancy was written into the show.

I hope no one minds, but I’m not going to get into the case of the bowler that was killed. With everything going on, I could have cared less about the case, who was killed, and why. Sorry! I will say though that I may need to see more episodes where Booth sports a mullet and Brennan has 1980s South Philly hair. Freaking fantastic!!! The only thing that really mattered was how many times, during the case, Brennan made comments about having kids with Booth or the way other children were behaving.

Before getting into the Booth and Brennan stuff, let’s talk about the birth of Michael Staccato Vincent Hodgins. How cute was it that he has Angela’s dad’s name request and Vincent’s name all as part of his official name? I loved it. I also loved the labor and delivery. Leading up to all that Angela is helping Wendell and Hodgins with their case while at the same time, eating enough hot sauce to season 100,000 chicken wings, to try to help speed her labor along. It works because her water breaks at the lab. Hodgins, for once, is staying calm while Ang goes into labor. He calmly speaks to her while she screams at him to get the car and the flashback to a freaking out Hodgins resurfaces when he flips out again and scrambles to find his car keys. They get to the hospital and Ang is hilarious. One minute she’s yelling at Hodgins and the doctor while the next she is being sweet as pie to them. Hodgins didn’t take the name calling so well but the doctor just took it all in stride. She’s seen it all before. The best part is while she’s in labor, she’s on a web cam still helping Wendell and Cam with the case. I seriously would have hurled that computer across the room before I worked while being in labor (with no drugs to boot !!!!). Angela is a much stronger woman than me! But right before the baby is born, they say the sweetest things to each other, about loving the sound of each other’s voice and how the touch of her hand resonates throughout his body. It was so touching. Michael is born and his vision is checked immediately. The doctor turns around and tells them that their baby boy is just fine and his vision is perfect! “After what they did by killing Vincent Nigel Murray, that kid’s vision better be perfect” my husband says to me. He is still very bitter about the last episode! Who can blame him?

This all leads to the crew waiting to hear news about Ang and Michael, Brennan visiting Ang and giving her a stuffed bunny from her and Booth, and Brennan’s conversation with Booth. I think it was pretty obvious that Emily’s pregnancy was going to be written into the show. A few episodes ago she mentioned how she would be the only one in the lab without a child. She mentioned several times in this episode how she and “Buck” would never raise a child like that (meaning the annoying brat on the bowling team). When she went to see Ang, her first question was about how labor was. And finally walking with Booth, she was asking about having children. So it was coming. The question was, how would this be possible? We haven’t seen (on camera) Booth and Brennan getting together so how could she be pregnant with his kid? Could Hart Hanson be THAT cruel? The answer is yes. It’s safe to assume this happened the night of VNM’s death when Brennan cried in Booth’s arms in his bed. Now there was a conversation with her and Angela, the next day, about her being in bed with Booth. It was a very vague conversation and even though Ang was excited, I thought she was reading too much into it and the writers were also leading us to believe that as well and it would turn out to not be true. Well so much for that. Thinking back, it makes sense because why would Brennan make a point to tell Ang about that night if nothing happened. Well folks, it happened. The thing all of us B&B fans have been waiting for for 6 seasons FINALLY happened. We just didn’t get to see it or enjoy it.

How do you feel about that? I’m pissed. Like I said before, don’t get me wrong. I’m THRILLED they finally got together and the baby is his and not some random motorcycle doctor’s kid (Castle fans will understand that reference). But are you kidding me???? Booth and Brennan have sex for the first time and we don’t even get to see a kiss? Really? I feel cheated. I feel like I have been waiting all this time for B&B to unite and they did but we didn’t get to share it with them. I mean, we couldn’t even get a kiss or a HUG after she told him the news. Nothing! I don’t get it. I know some people will think I am splitting hairs and other people may think that nothing is ever good enough but I don’t care. I understand the real life pregnancy needed to be written in. I get that. I just wish it would have started with a kiss or date or sex and then it slowly build to this. I really feel cheated. At the same time, I really liked the season finale and like the fact that we are starting to move B&B in the right direction. I just hope Hanson doesn’t pull one of those “they’re having a baby together but they aren’t together as a couple and they will need to learn to co-parent separately.”. I will never watch Bones again if a stunt like that is pulled. We deserve and B&B deserve to be happy together in a real relationship. I hope tonight’s finale was the start of that moving forward.

What did you think Bones fans? Did you like the finale? Do you love or hate the pregnancy bomb? Are you happy or mad about the way B&B getting together was handled? I want to hear from you!! One thing I do know, I can’t wait for September!!!

REVIEW: Bones “The Sign in the Silence” S6 E21

There didn’t seem to be a lot of love for this episode of Bones and I’m not sure why.  I really enjoyed it on a many levels.  First, it was different because Bones was dealing with a living breathing person that she could connect with vs. just a victim and their bones.  Second, the dynamic between Bones and Vaziri and Sweets and Bones and their difference of opinion on Brennan.  And finally, Hodgins and Angela and her delivery scare.   Hodgins had me crying laughing.  He was so hysterical so let’s start with that one.

Hodgins and Angela

We all know these two have been through the ringer when it comes to this pregnancy.  But they have always handled whatever was thrown at them with class and dignity and while sometimes their emotions got the better of them, someone was always there to calm and comfort the other and get everyone back on the right track.  I have always loved their relationship and this pregnancy has solidified that view for me even more.  However, when Angela thought she was having contractions and needed to go to the hospital, instead of staying calm, Hodgins completely freaked out.    He started yelling and spazing so Angela, who was in labor, had to calm him.   She had to remind him to get the car and when he couldn’t find his keys, he started asking her where they are.   Priceless!!!!  It was so funny to see him come completely unglued like that.

They get to the hospital and it turns out it was false labor.  I love when couples always say they feel so stupid when it turns out to be false labor.   Why?  This is your first baby.   You have no idea how to tell the difference between real labor and fake labor.   You feel what you think is labor pains so you go to the hospital.   There is no reason to feel foolish!   But they joke about what a good and funny test run it was and that hopefully next time when it’s real, they will be slightly calmer and more prepared.  I loved it.  Although there is one comment I would like to make.   Why the hell was Angela driving?  When Hodgins went to get her out of the car, he got her out on the driver side.  The woman just had false labor pains and you’re making her drive herself?   That seemed odd to me.

Brennan and Vaziri

There was a point where Brennan and Vaziri were examining the bones of the victim who Amy/Samantha alleged to have killed.  Vaziri made a comment about Brennan being distant and this is now the second time in the episode that someone has made a comment about Brennan being cold.  Earlier at the diner, Sweets was giving Brennan a hard time about not wanting to find the real reason why Amy/Samantha may have killed a man twice her size.  She explains that her motive is very important to her because she wants to get behind the real reason for this crime.  She also thinks since the door of the victim’s apartment was busted through, there is no way someone of Amy/Samantha’s size and stature could have done it.   Therefore there could be something else going on.   “I’m not as cold as everyone thinks I am” she tells Sweets and he apologies to her.

Back to the scene with Vaziri, you could tell how upset Brennan is that this is now another person that has made a comment about her “chilliness.”  Vazini made a comment about Brennan becoming very attached to this case.  She asks him what he means by that and he explains that normally she insists on maintaining distance in a case.    She teaches him that it’s objectivity that allows them to analyze evidence without being clouded by personal judgement or wishes for how a case should turn out.  “I’m sorry if you think that means I don’t care.”  He tells her that he didn’t mean it like that and she tells him that’s exactly what he meant.    She finishes by saying that if she knew how to communicate how she felt she would, seeing as that it would make everyone else’s lives much easier.

Now I see both sides to this.  From Sweets and Vaziri’s side, their assumptions are very logical.  Brennan is not an outwardly warm person.  She is very clinical and direct in her logic and expression.  Therefore it’s easy to see how they can make the assumption that she is cold and unfeeling.  She has even on several occasions bragged about how scientific she can be in not allowing feelings to cloud her work.  She takes pride in it.  But on Brennan’s side, just because she treats her job as a science and keeps to being 100% objective, doesn’t mean she doesn’t care about the victims and the truth.  She is the best in the world because of how she is able to conduct herself.   But Sweets and Vaziri have known Brennan long enough to know better than to assume she is a cold, unfeeling person.  Especially Sweets.  With all the sessions he had with her and Booth, he knows better.  Vaziri I would give the benefit of the doubt a bit more because he doesn’t interact with Brennan as much as the others.   I think this was a classic case of miscommunication and assumptions gone wrong.   But the air has been cleared and hopefully everyone knows now that when Brennan acts the way she does in the case, it’s for the betterment of the victim so she can get to the truth.  That is her showing that she cares.

Amy/Samantha

This was a very sad case that thankfully ended on a very happy and touching note (which of course made me cry!)   Amy is a deaf-mute who was found covered and blood and wielding a knife.  At the Jeffersonian, there are having a terrible time getting her to cooperate so they could find out who she is and what happened.  Sweets at one point goes to Brennan to remind her what being a foster child is like and how you never trusted anyone and people made decision that hurt you because they were in a rush.  She agreed and decided to take a softer approach with Amy and it finally got her to cooperate.  Unfortunately, her x-rays showed years and years of physical abuse that started around age 3.   They were able to trace her parents, the Mike and Denise Sheffield, to a town in Pennsylvania and brought them down to the FBI office.  Once the judge approved Amy be moved to child protective services, her parents flipped out and left to get a lawyer.  Brennan realized that Amy had some sort of condition that at least one of her parents has to have.  She tested both and neither showed signs of the disease proving they aren’t her biological parents.  Booth and Sweets question the parents and while Denise is opening up, Mike keeps telling her to shut up.  She doesn’t so he loses his temper and hits her in the face.  Great guy!!!   Booth then loses it and punches the guy.

Later investigating shows Mike knew the victim.  When Amy ran away to DC, he called his friend to pick her up and hold her until he got there.  Amy was so afraid that she grabbed a knife off the man’s counter.    They struggled and fell down.  He went to hit her and she stabbed him to protect herself.  It was all self-defense on Amy’s part.   She then left and ended up in the alley where the cop found her at the beginning of the show.   When Mike showed up at his friend’s apartment and saw him lying in his blood, he just took off back to PA.  Again, nice guy!!!

So now the hunt is on to find Amy’s real parents.  They believe she was kidnapped around the age of 3.   They ask her if she can remember anything from that time.   Any sort of happy memory.  She says she remembers a favorite stuffed bunny she had and that was it.   Now here comes the part that I think has to be far-fetched.  There is a lot of stuff that happens on TV where I can find a logical explanation for how it could be real.   This next bit of forensic work, I can’t buy.  They decide to pull one of Amy’s wisdom teeth to see where she was from.  Apparently, the isotopes that developed in her jaw line, where her adult teeth were forming, can show particulates that will show where she grew up.  Yeah right!!!   I don’t believe that for a second but I am going to go with it because I like happy endings.   They trace her back to a town around L.A. and found a missing persons report that shows Amy’s picture with the bunny she talked about.  Turns out her real name is Samantha and they contact her parents immediately.

Outside the Jeffersonian, Booth and Brennan are there with Samantha and she looks so pretty.   She asks Brennan if she looks ok and if she thinks her parents will like her.   KLEENEX STAT!!!!!   Then the Winslows show up and they are so excited to see her.  They signed to her that they never gave up looking for her and pull out her bunny and ask if she remembers.  She does and she runs to hug her parents.   MORE KLEENEX NOW PLEASE!!!!!   What a great moment.   As B&B are walking away, Booth confides in Brennan that he was upset at himself for hitting Mike Sheffield.  She tells him that she understands why he did it but Booth says he has to be better.  Just because he was abused, doesn’t mean he can pop off like that.  He doesn’t ever want his son to see him like that and he expects better of himself.   Brennan tells him that Parker is very lucky to have a dad like him and Booth tells her, that he wants it to be more than just luck.

I thought it was a great episode and I really enjoyed it.    This is all building to next week’s season finale…..The Change in the Game.   What will that change be Bones fans??

QUICK REVIEW: Grey’s Anatomy

While I mention in the titles that these are “quick reviews” you may notice that they are still quite long.   Keep in mind, I am pretty much recapping about 3-4 episodes in here (although this one is only 2) so there is still a lot to talk about.  I’m just not posting 3-4 different reviews so I can catch up.   But I am just going to hit the highlights here.

Derek and Meredith

The clinical trial is moving along but after an eye-opening conversation with Adele (and after seeing a post-it note on Chief Webber that dropped where it said “I am Richard.   Richard is my husband”) Meredith realizes Adele really needs help.  She sneaks in to see her test and sees that she is schedule to receive the placebo.  She checks the next patient’s chart (patient # 123) and sees they are scheduled for the active agent.   At that moment, she switches the results so she can give Adele the active agent and patient #123 the placebo.   WOW!!!!  I would never, ever think Meredith would do something like unless it was for Derek or Cristina.  And even then I wouldn’t be sure she would do it.   So this action really surprised me.   As fan, I love the fact that she did it for Adele and Richard.   But as someone who knows better, what she did was awful on so many levels.  She denied the real patient the active agent they deserved.   She lied and falsified results.   She compromised the integrity of the clinical trial and the hospital.   And she compromised her own integrity.   I can’t wait to see how Derek reacts to this news.    He will find out you know. I understand why she did it but it still never should have happened.  It’s exactly why she should have never been part of this trial.   She’s too close to the disease and the people involved.

On a happier note, as a result of Alex bringing African children to the US to give them medical assistance (more on that later), Derek falls in love a beautiful little girl and decides that they should adopt her.  Meredith’s first reaction is shock but after holding her and hugging her, she warms to the idea.   So they decide they are going to adopt.   One tiny problem though, they aren’t married….legally.  Unfortunately, a post-it wedding will not suffice in a court of law when you are trying to adopt a child.   Down to the JP they go and make it legal.  I have to say, I loved how the show intermingled MerDer’s wedding wtih Calzona’s wedding at the same time.   And I love how they are going to adopt this baby.   Love the story line!!!

Owen and Cristina

Not much on the Owen front other than he is being tasked to pick the next Chief Resident.  But Cristina has some issues with Teddy, her current mentor.    I haven’t been a big Cristina fan this season.  Actually, throughout the series, she’s been one of my least favorites from a personal standpoint but one of my most favorites from a complex character standpoint.  I really like how her trauma was handled this season but her attitude since has bugged me.   Cristina has always thought she was better than everyone else.   Cristina wants to learn how to be the best surgeon but she has no interest in learning how to be the best doctor.   What I mean by that is that she wants to learn all the newest techniques and procedures but when it comes to patient care or proper hierarchy in the hospital, she has no time.  I’ve always disliked that about her.   However, I don’t know how I feel about the situation with Teddy.  While she needs to be respectful to her attending, when it comes to life and death and you think you have a better way to do something but your attending is too proud to let you help, I have no problem with Cristina stepping in and saying let’s do this.  At first, she suggests something and Teddy says it’s too risky.   So she looks at Owen to back her up.  I would be pissed at Cristina too.  Don’t look at your husband for back up and disregard my opinion as the expert in this particular situation.  It would be one thing if she was seeking another attending’s opinion but she wasn’t.  She was looking for her husband, the attending, to back her up so she could get her way.  And that’s what pissed Teddy off and rightfully so.  But then when they get into surgery, Teddy’s procedure isn’t working so Cristina wants to try hers.  She even had Owen on her side in the OR since Teddy’s way wasn’t working.   Teddy kept saying no but eventually Chief Webber told her to back off and step away.  She does, Cristina takes over and her procedure works.  Later when she sees Teddy, Teddy tells her that she is off her service since she has nothing else to teach her.  Uh, ok.  I’m still not sure about that one yet but alright.  Owen tells Cristina that she needs to apologize to Teddy.   Maybe for the earlier portion but for the surgery, I don’t understand…I’m with Cristina on that one.   She sees Teddy in the elevator and apologizes but you can tell it isn’t sincere, she’s just saying it to get back into the OR.  Teddy doesn’t accept and tells her that it’s important it mean something.   Finally at Calzona’s wedding, Cristina goes up to Teddy and tells her what she really thinks.  That she is sorry about the fact that Teddy is threatened by her and her success.  Teddy tells her that she still doesn’t get it.   You know what Cristina, neither do I!   Maybe Teddy will it explain it to all of us at some point!   Then maybe it will make sense!

Callie and Arizona

Wow, is Callie’s mom a bitch or what?  I understand being true to your religious beliefs….but at the expense of your only daughter’s happiness?   That’s cold.  But let’s back up.   Callie is still recovering from her injuries and it is a slow and painful process.   She also has yet to see her daughter who is fighting for her life but getting stronger every day.  I have to say, I like how Grey’s did a FF, if you will, with the one episode, showing the steady progression of both Callie and Sophia.  Obviously they were both going to be in the hospital for a long time and Grey’s isn’t going to show that in real time.   So the way they did it worked very well.  And it was nice to see Arizona and Mark start to come together as friends and family after how things had been between them.  At one point, Callie was so frustrated by not being able to see her daughter that our favorite crew of residents rolled her bed down to the NICU so she could finally meet her Sophia.  It was such a sweet moment.  It also gave Callie, even more strength.

She and Sophia are eventually cleared to go home and while everyone is cheering for both of them, Callie is freaking out.  Sophia is in a car seat and Callie burst into tears saying cars aren’t safe and she doesn’t want her daughter in the car and screams at Mark to get her out of the car seat.  Bailey comes over and calms her down and tells her that she’s just taken the first step in becoming a mom.  There are so many dangers out there and she can protect her as best she can but she also needs to live and enjoy life with her.  It was a really terrific speech and it did calm Callie’s nerves to the point where she agreed to take Sophia home.

Now, it’s time for the big day…..the wedding!!!!!  Both Arizona and Callie’s parents are in town and everyone seems to be a having a great time and getting along.   But something seems off with Callie’s mom.  She is polite and social but just off.  Things start to fall apart though.   The major problem is the minister who would marry them couldn’t perform the service (I think his wife was in the hospital or something) and since he was the only minister who would perform the ceremony, they are screwed so Callie wants to call off the day.  Bailey to the rescue again!   She tells her that a wedding is about sharing your love and committing to your partner in front of all your friends, family, and God.  God doesn’t have to be in a church.  He’s everywhere.  So no matter where they profess their love to one another God will be there to support and witness it.  So the wedding is back on and Bailey will be the officient.   Love it!!!  However, we have a few more issues….mainly Callie’s slit ass of a mother.  Callie is trying on her veil which is very similar to the one her mother wore at her wedding and Callie’s mom could care less.   Finally she asks her what is going on.   Why all the nasty stares, indignance, and the fact that she refuses to hold or spend time with Sophia.   Callie’s mom finally admits that it’s because she can’t support a lesbian wedding or a baby out-of-wedlock.  What is this 1950?  Does she not realize that her daughter and granddaughter almost died????   She’s lucky they both survived!   Now, Callie has found someone who makes her incredibly happy, someone she wants to share her life with, and a beautiful and strong baby girl to add to their family.  I’m sorry, exactly what can’t she support?   Shouldn’t her daughter’s happiness trump anything else?  I would think so.  But she is so selfish and cruel and she can’t see beyond the wall of judgement that is blocking the view of her daughter’s happiness.  I’m glad she’s not there to ruin Callie and Arizona’s day.  But I think it’s also a shame that her father (who had his own issues but eventually came around) had to leave and not share this day with his little girl.   But we never should have worried!!!   Calzona gets hitched in a beautiful service and have an awesome reception.   When it comes time for the father daughter dance, Arizona goes to dance with her father and Mark dances with Callie.   But there is Callie’s dad to cut in and have his dance with his girl!!   Oh the tears!!!   So stick it Mama Torres!!!!!!

Everyone Else

The fight for chief resident is still going on with Alex taking a slight lead at this point by using a dying woman’s money (that she gave to him) to bring children over from Africa to be able to save their lives.  Alex is also the only one who knows what Meredith did during her clinical trial with switch the placebo for the active agent in Adele’s case.   So we’ll see how that plays out.

Teddy is still married and dating.  I find it horrible that she goes to her husband’s apartment to share her leftovers with him after every date she goes on.  It’s terrible and heartless!!!   Doesn’t she see how much he has fallen for her and this is probably killing him?  And how come your husband (the adorable Scott Foley) isn’t on your list of potential suitors?  Ugh.  Unfortunately, the shrink is back and he has received a crazy job offer in Germany (I think it was Germany) and he is planning on taking it.  As an added bonus, he made them offer Teddy the chief cardio-thorasic position as well.  So now she has a choice.  Does she stay with hubby or go to Germany?

REVIEW: The Office “Goodbye, Michael” S7 E22

Season 2, Episode 10: “Christmas Party.”    That was the very first episode of The Office that I ever watched.  I remember my husband coming home from a business trip and he told me about this funny show he watched on the plane called The Office.  We decided to watch “Christmas Party” and while my husband found it hilarious, I remember thinking…”this is the dumbest and wackiest show I have ever seen.”  I didn’t know the characters or the premise or why the boss was such a jackass.  So my husband suggested we get Season 1 to put it in context.   We got the DVD and had a marathon Saturday.  I have been a fan ever since!!!

I must admit, I haven’t been as much of a fan during Seasons 6 & 7 because I think the show has lost a little something.  It hadn’t been as funny or engaging and I think at times, it was being off the wall just for the sake of being off the wall.   It also started to take Michael Scott’s character into more of a caricature than a character (which struck me as funny when Michael ripped up Kevin’s picture and told him to never be a caricature!)   But “Goodbye, Michael” reminded us why we fell in love with Michael Scott (and therefore Steve Carell) in the first place…underneath that insane and manic exterior lies a really good man with a huge heart who only ever wanted to love and be loved and have people accept him for who he is.

Steve Carell is one of the most underrated actors and comedians.  Michael Scott is arguably one of the most challenging roles to play and I think it’s very easy for a character like him to go off the rails quickly to being unlikable and unwatchable.   Even to the point that you can’t watch the show.  Michael Scott could have turned into one of the most hated and annoying characters of all time.  Now you’re probably thinking “but at one point or another, he was all of those things.”  And you would be right.  But the trick is to do it to the point that it actually enhances the show instead detracts from it and keeps you coming back to see what he will say and do next.  Most importantly, you need to show that character as someone deeper than the nut job you constantly see.   That is what Steve Carell was able to do so brilliantly.  He was able to deliver and unbelievably insane character at times with such heart and spirit that even though you wanted to crawl under a desk out of embarrassment for him at times, you also wanted to hug him for his always wanting to believe the best in people (except Toby.)  Carell let you see the damaged Michael and the broken Michael and also the Michael that genuinely cared for the people who worked for him.  The line between funny and quirky vs. annoying and bizarre is very slight with a character like this.  I think Carell was able to perfectly balance the two, which isn’t easy to do.

As for the episode itself, I thought it was perfect.  It was funny (Oscar and his doll and Michael’s reaction), it was touching (Erin, Jim, and Pam’s final good-byes with Michael), it had some great moments (Dwight reading Michael’s letter and Michael tearing up in the break room realizing he doesn’t want to leave), and it gave us long time viewers some flashes to the past (Michael wanting to use the bailer and Ping.)  I don’t think this episode could have been handled any better.  I was also happy that Will Ferrell was put on the back burner for this episode.  He certainly wasn’t forgotten about but he was put aside for the sake of the episode solely focusing on Michael.

Michael had a list.  There were people he needed to say good-bye to before he left for Colorado.  We learn he is saying all his good-byes today but he isn’t leaving until tomorrow.  I like how he went from person to person to give them a gift or have one last conversation with them.  I also like that everyone stayed true to character.  Kelly was annoyed by Michael, Stanley really had no time for him, etc.  Although for the sake of time, he had to say good-bye to Gabe, Creed, and Meredith together.  I must say, I was surprised he gave Toby a one-on-one good-bye.  But I also loved how as awful Michael has always been to him, he still offered to set his brother up to help him get acclimated to Boulder.  I choose to believe that while Michael wanted no part of hanging out with Toby’s brother, he was also very touched by the gesture.  As Michael says good-bye, he crosses those people off his list.  For me, there were a few good-byes that really stood out:

Oscar

I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard watching The Office.  First when he pulled out the doll/scarecrow, it made me laugh for its sheer patheticness.  But the kicker was Michael’s reaction. The way he was laughing at the gift he gave Oscar, made me bust out laughing.  I am one of those people who when I see someone laughing really hard at something, I can’t help but laugh with them…even if it isn’t funny to me.  But this was a double dose of funny to me and hysterical watching someone crack up that much.   I watched it several more times and it got funnier every time.  That will be one of those You Tube clips (when I can find it, that will make me laugh whenever I need it!)

Erin

I’ve always loved Michael and Erin’s relationship.  I found it interesting that he always thought the things she said and did were slightly strange (has he ever listened to himself) and therefore felt the need to protect her to some degree.  He was like a big brother to her and their last moment was just like that.  He told her that she was beautiful and smart and that when she found true love, she would know it.  He also told her to call him anytime.  “Extension 417” she said.  When he thought she was serious she told him she was just kidding and he kissed her head and walked away.  It was so sweet.

Dwight

This really wasn’t a good-bye as much as it was Dwight finally getting what he always wanted from Michael…a best friend and acknowledgment.  While Michael was always so busy trying to be Jim’s best friend, Dwight was always trying to be Michael’s.  Dwight in many ways was Michael’s wing man.   The Goose to his Maverick.  But there were many times, he didn’t get that reassurance.  He also never got the attention and the breaks that Jim got.  Michael was always hard on Dwight where Jim was the golden boy…the probably the main reason Dwight always hated Jim so much.   But in this episode, Dwight finally got his confirmation of respect and friendship.  And Rainn Wilson played the scene perfectly.  When he paused during the part where it talked about all the things that made Dwight superlative, the change in his face brought me to tears.  It was so touching.  And then in typical The Office fashion, at the most emotional moment, the funny breaks out, because Michael asked Dwight to meet him for a private paintball battle.  Dwight was so excited and I found it hilarious that he had all the equipment needed already in the back of his car!!!  They had their fight and Michael, with a huge smile on his face, crosses Dwight off his list.

Pam

Michael has always loved Pam.  Not in a romantic way but in a “you’re the heart and soul of this office and I love you for it” way.   And in her own way, Pam loved Michael too.  I think it took her many years to come around to Michael, but she was one of the first people to really see a different side to him.  She was one of the first people, he let in.   So after a while, Pam was able to put the craziness in perspective because she knew who was underneath all that.  She always had his back and there were times she would support him when no one else would.  That didn’t go unnoticed by Michael which is another reason he was so crazy about her.  The only thing that was slightly disappointing was how predictable her good-bye was.  You knew she wasn’t going to be in the office when he left.  But as soon as his cab pulled out and her car pulled in, you knew she was going to chase him down in the airport.  There was no way in hell, Michael would leave without saying good-bye to Pam.   And even though I knew it was coming, it still made me burst into tears when I saw her run in with her shoes off and hug him good-bye.  The best part, there was no mic so we couldn’t hear what they said to each other.  I loved that.  I know there was some debate over the lack of mic for that exchange but I love it.  It was their own private moment that Pam tearfully relayed to us and she watched his plane take off.

Jim

This is the one that killed me the most.  Probably because I felt like I was watching John Krasinski and Steve Carell getting emotional over saying good-bye to each other vs. Jim Halpert and Michael Scott.  I felt that those two men’s emotions were very real in that scene.  This was probably my second favorite relationship on the series (behind Jim and Pam of course!!)  Jim always gave Michael a hard time and he knew exactly what buttons to push on Michael.  But he was never mean or malicious.  It was always in good fun.  As I said before, Michael always thought that he and Jim were best friends.  And in many ways, Jim was his best friend.  Jim knew how to talk to Michael when no one else could.  He knew how to calm him down when needed, fire him up when needed, and advise him when needed.  If there was one person Michael needed to go to for real advise, it would be Jim.  Even in their last scene he asked him, “am I doing the right thing.”  As usual Jim was there to guide him and give him strength…”Absolutely!”   Jim was always the most perceptive person in the room.  And on Michael’s last day, he was the only who could figure out that Michael was leaving at the end of this day and not the next day.  So he went in to see him and made sure that he told him what a great boss he turned out to be.  “The best boss I ever had.”   I just burst out crying and couldn’t stop.  If you could see me now, you would see it’s happening again.  They shook hands, wished each other well and Michael went down to grab his cab.

I also want to make one final comment about the break room scene.  Michael is eating lunch by himself when Jim, Pam, Kevin, and Oscar come in to have lunch.  Jim asks him to join them but he says he almost finished but thanks.  Pam starts talking about how she is going to town to price paper shredders and Kevin is glad because the last one stunk because it wouldn’t shred magazines.  Pam tells him they aren’t supposed to shred magazines and Kevin tells her that he knows that.   Michael watches the whole thing and he looks into the camera and we see him start to cry.  He goes into his office and loses it.  He doesn’t want to go because he won’t be able to find his favorite TV channels and he refuses to start improv at the bottom if his credits don’t transfer.  But we know why he really doesn’t want to go…the people.   He calls Holly to tell her he isn’t coming and that he can’t do this.  As soon as he hears her voice (her Yoda voice) he is reminded not only why he loves her so much, but why he is leaving in the first place….he wants to start his life with her.  As he finishes his call with her, back to being sure about his decision, she tells him she will see him later when she picks him up at the airport and that’s when we find out he is really leaving that day and not the next day.  It was a very touching scene and another testament to Carell and his ability to go from hysterical to sad to jovial to contentment.

I don’t know if The Office can make it without Michael Scott.  While I love Jim, Pam, Dwight, Andy, Phyllis, Oscar, Angela, and the rest of the cast, Michael Scott makes that show.  I’m sure Will Ferrell will do a fine job because he is a funny guy but DeAngelo is no Michael Scott and he is no Steve Carell.    It’s not fair to compare but it’s hard not to.  For many seasons, other than Jim and Pam, Michael is why I tuned into that show.  Michael’s chemistry and banter with the other characters is what I loved.   How can the show possibly go forward without him?   I guess we’ll have to see.

I want to thank Steve Carell for giving us almost 7 seasons of laughter and tears and for giving us one of the most memorial characters in TV history.  I don’t know how I will be able to The Office without you.  I wish you much luck in your future career and personal path…no matter where it takes you.  On a selfish, I really hope that someday soon, my TV will have you on it again.   Because nothing beats lying in bed and watching you entertain me every Thursday night!!!   (That’s what she said!)
