For some reason I still don't like torv in this role.

Other than that it's been ok, yeah the finale 'twist' was telegraphed.

Didn't expect Walternate to be "mr. secretary", of course with 20/20 hindsight, who else would it be ?

I'm just worried it will get canceled mid-season and have no resolution to any of it.

I like regular Olivia a lot, but Alt-livia (I'm coining that now) is a little lame. She's trying a little too hard to be different than Olivia.

I think that all serialized shows should have a set end date when they begin. It allows the writers to simply tell a really good story.

Yes, definitely. A la the UK.

Open-ended story telling doesn't generally work.

Unless it involves me with a copious amount of alcohol. Then it works.

Screw Deadwood (although I must admit I liked it) - The Shield is the best seven seasons of any television series ever!!!

I agree with Deep - One of the best shows on NETWORK television.

Agreed. I think the quality of shows would go up. At the very least, have a full story plan in place before you find yourself on the 2nd season with no ideas.

Sometimes foreigners doing American accents doesn't quite work, seems forced.

That Fiennes guy in Flashforward for example is just Sofia-Coppola-bad.

Torv isn't that bad but it's just not working for me other than on the eye candy front.

She's probably the only reason I watched it as long as I did. Though John Noble was excellent as well, actually.

I really hope he gets nominated for an emmy. I love him!

I wonder how long the Olivia switcheroo will actually last next season. If it's more than an episode or two, it may become tiresome.

This one will probably get all hot and heavy with Walternet's son.

(because she thinks she needs to, or she wants to)


then when she goes back, the son will be conflicted. Blondie comes back, he wants her, she is cautious.





or they could all just meet up, accept their deaths and walk into the light.
