You suck. Yet again your HD channels for the CW were so disjointed and distorted, they were unwatchable. So when I tuned into my DVR recording of The Flash around 8:40 pm, I had to go to the SD version, which I had not recorded and was therefore able to watch only the last 2o minutes of it. I take that back; it was only the last 15 minutes because I has to sit through five fucking-minutes of commercials.
I was a refund.
Fortunately, since I do not like Ray Palmer of Starling City, nor do I care for Felicity Smoak when she’s with him, I didn’t miss anything of importance to me.
And I did get to see Cisco Ramon take a
bullet bee for Ray. Nerd Hero Alert #1!
So Cisco “kind of” remembers Harrison Wells killing him. It looks like the whole “Harrison Wells is the Reverse-Flash” intrigue will take us to the end of the season. I’m totally fine with that. (Unless it means Tom Cavanagh will be out next season.)
Agents of SHIELD
God dammit! Just when I’m no longer interested in this show, an episode comes along that sucks me back in. Actually, it’s more like particular scenes draw me in. So much so that I have to comment on them.
The guest star credits last week listed an impressive number of people I recognized. Among them was Dichen Lachman. I’m no fan of hers since her boring character on Last Resort, but in this episode I noticed how truly beautiful she is. Even with all the scars.
Who wasn’t on the list of guest stars? J. August Richards. Mike Peterson! What a hugely pleasant surprise to see him. Wouldn’t it be great to learn how to fly a plane in 2.5 seconds?
Last week seemed to signal the end of Fitz and Simmons, as they appeared to be opposite SHIELD teams. Except, at the last minute, we discover they’re in cahoots! Oh you crazy kids! So jazzed to see how Fitz’s arc progressed this week, what a disappointment it was to go through the entire episode without him. Ok, he did show up for the final 3-ish minutes, but what a great 3 minutes they were. Nerd Hero Alert #2!
This week’s episode also gave us insight into Melinda May and the op that gave her “the Cavalry” nickname, but also destroyed her personal life. Yet, what I really noticed is that with all the “real SHIELD” vs. “faux SHIELD” goings-on, with agents seeming to switch sides, the show has become nearly as convoluted as 12 Monkeys. And that show makes my head hurt!
