I feel so bad for Max and yet she still blames Eleanor for what has happened. I hope that she eventually comes to her senses and realizes that Eleanor will take care of her. I guess old loves are hard to get rid of. I was sort of shocked that Eleanor screwed Vane. i can’t figure out what they are doing with Guthrie and Miranda. When she was talking with the Preacher and Guthrie was going through the house it makes me wonder if she is really Flint’s wife. Also Guthrie snooping around her house. Silver did good getting on Billy’s side by telling him of the mutiny. I tell you those captains seem to be a dime a dozen. They sure do have to bow down to their crews or they seem easily replaced. It’s like Rackham being confronted by the crew to get their pearls and/or money back. If he doesn’t I guess he could be relieved as quartermaster. Gates get’s promoted to captain and then taken away and then up there again all in one episode. It’s a fascinating world. I loved how Eleanor got Vane to behave after she stopped the attack on Max and made him partner up with Flint to get the Urca d’Lima. Eleanor sure did put her dad in his place. Only 5 episodes left this season. I guess they didn’t want to do to many unless it failed miserably. Lots of side story lines etc going on but it’s coming together nicely I think.
I loved that this was so Shaw centric. She is one of my favorite characters ever. She looked so good with that white dress on. It amazed me that nothing on Root, Control or Vigilance was mentioned. Maybe that will be front and center during the season ending shows. That Kelly sure did get a free pass from the Paris cop by leaving her the key. I’m glad he did that even though she had stolen those artifacts but had to because of her daughter. I liked how he said she should have got the gold and it was that key. The best though was Reese leaving a drink for Carter while Fusco was babbling on about stealing. They can’t keep going on doing things like that. I know she was very important to the show but enough is enough. The little minute of silence was good and of course Fusco has to pick up about stealing again.
I have to say the scene of the entire show was Mary, Tom and Isobel talking about their spouses and then saying aren’t we the lucky ones was just beautiful. I so enjoyed that. And Isobel and Violet. I swear they should have their own show. Isobel snooping around and then Violet one upping her by hiring Pegg back. Such good writing. I feel sorry for Edith. Looks like she is with child and Gregson is no where to be found. I wonder if Sampson, the guy he took all the money from in the card game, killed him? Cora sure did put the maitre’d in his place and gets a table for Anna and Bates. You know Thomas has always had a thing for Anna and now that he knows something is up thanks to Baxter I’m sure he is going to find out what happened to her. He might go after Green because of it but we shall see. I still can’t figure out what Thomas has over Baxter to make her spill her guts. Wouldn’t you know that Mary would see Rose and Jack smacking lips. I thought that was a good surprise and I loved how Carson reacted when he first saw that he is black. Love how Mrs. Patmore and Mrs. Hughes hired Molesley to pour tea for the servants and in the long run Carson having to hire him back. Good plot. I’m glad Alfred is gone. Let’s hope for good so Daisy can quit behaving so childish like she has been.
I know this is only the second episode but it’s getting better already. I guess it takes some time for these shows to hit their stride. First of all I have to say I love the sets on this show. The town and how there are stairs all over the place and so old and rugged, sorta like Virginia City. I just love it and the costumes. It’s so great to see. Well John Silver made himself indispensable. I just hope that he is going to be able to remember it. I knew he was going to burn that when he got to the druggy area and saw the flames. It was a race to the finish as to see who was going to get that paper but old John one upped them. Poor Rackham, loosing all those black pearls when he fell in the ocean. Not only did he have to deal with
Vane about that but he ended up loosing them anyway. I’m sure even though that John has memorized that paper and Flint, Billy and Gates have him, we can’t count out Vane and Rackham. Gonna be good to see the outcome. I felt so bad for Max when Eleanor chose the way that Flint said they could make Nassau over leaving with her. I like the two of them together and I’m anxious to see what happens between the two. That chick that helps Vane saw her leave so I’m sure she isn’t going to get very far away. I’m assuming that is Flint’s wife where he rode to at the end. I was wondering where he was going. Good show.
Well the show was good in the fact that it was so good to see the original team back in action and how they cover each other’s back all the time. Danny and Grace were so good especially when she came clean outside and said that she is no rat. I’m glad that Danny came to his sense and saw that the punishment was too much and then commented to the fact that she’s got a good right. Parrish was something else. How in the hell he got in Danny’s car and the two of them didn’t see him in the back seat is beyond me. I like how they tied it in with his daughter like Danny and Grace. It’s too bad that he didn’t get to make things up to her because he got shot. But I guess it’s better late than never.
Well at least Bates knows the truth now at least a portion of it and you know he knows that it was Green that raped her and I am willing to be that it’s going to be the climax of the season as to what happens with Bates and Green. I thought it was so touching what he said to Anna and I hope that they still get through this and then him crying after talking to loose lips Mr.s Hughes was a good scene. Boy he sure got the info he wanted from her. Poor Adam not getting in the cooking school but who really cares. Mrs. Patmore not wanting the refrigerator LOL She hates anything new even the sewing machine but was sure okay with it when it fixed her apron. Baxter is going to be a problem I bet. Tom is getting to her and I think going to be on his side like O’Brien was. Mary sure wasn’t happy about the guy that was smitten for her reading about his engagement but I think her and Tom are going to become a couple in the end of things. He isn’t going to leave to America I’m sure. I’m glad both he and Mary didn’t blow up when they found out Robert loaned Mr. Drew the money to pay for the farm. Good show but not enough mystery and brouhaha going on this year if you ask me.
I watched the first episode on line. I sent you the link. If you want to see it early just go to Black Sails You can watch it early. I’m really going to like this. Of course it’s going to take a while to get all the names but I really like Max the prostitute working with, John the supposed cook. The daughter Guthrie is something else and I also like her real well and how she runs the tavern is excellent. There must be some bad blood between her and her father. Time will tell. I loved how Flint threw is wig out of the boat LOL And Billy sure did change his tune about Flint when he said the blank piece of paper was the missing page. So much lying and cheating going on. I bust out laughing when the cook went and saw Blackbeard and when she opened her coat her pussy had that black beard down there LOL How clever that was. Vane seems like he is going to be Flints main competitor since he killed Singleton. I can’t imagine how much this must cost to produce but I really enjoy all the scenery and the sets. Nassau is a beautiful area. This could be just as good as Spartacus.
I just love that Monroe and Rosalee were on so much and that it is so much about them. It was so cute the way he proposed to her and gave her the diamond ring through the clock. Monroe’s parents are something else and it took so long for them to get on I was getting mad and then to make this a two parter and for the second part we have to wait until after the Olympics. I felt so bad for Rosalee when they found out she wasn’t a blutebot (sp) like Monroe but was glad that she dug out. I couldn’t believe that guy made a coat out of all the scalps. Adlind sure is getting close to having the bambino. I so enjoyed how they made you see it’s face and hands in her belly. Looks like they might be bringing Nicks mother back, or at least we aren’t done with her yet. Somehow she has got to be related to Renard’s story line going on with Adlind and the royalty in Austria. Good show.
Monday 1/21: I really like this show and think they have done a fantastic job. I so enjoyed the relationship between Bill and Epstein, the quirkiness and fun times they have and was so glad that Bill wants to get justice for his death. I know that it’s not the eskimos but you can tell others aren’t believing that. I enjoyed that scene around the camp fire with them. Belinda is going to be one of my favorite characters also. Talk about having to be tough. She isn’t one to be taken lightly. I can’t imagine what those miners went through back in that time period. The scenery is so beautiful there. I was proud of the father also for putting up the cross and deciding to stay in the building that he made the church. The stealing and lying that goes on is just amazing, but I think that really was what it was like. The guy that keeps showing up trying to buy the claim is sure a player I tell you. One of my favorite scenes was the both of them getting on that sled and going down the mountain. It also amazes me, and I don’t know why, the bigotry that Epstein had to put up with. For some reason up in that area I didn’t think that would go on. I was also glad that Bill got his boots back for him after that fool stole them. What a change of life style for the both of those boys. They are going to have a hit on the hands with this show if you ask me.
Tue/Wed 1/22 and 23: Well I think this was a good series. I guess it’s all over with now. Wouldn’t you know that Bill would end up in Florida with an orange farm. I really liked Meeker, as much as Ep, and it was brilliant of him to hide those gold bars in the shitter LOL. One of my favorite scenes was the eskimo boy with the guard and him naming his baby Freedom. I really enjoyed that. Belinda is one tough cookie and I was surprised that she didn’t go with Bill and wouldn’t you know that she would end up a house keeper and broke. Those times up there must have been so hard on everyone and people just moved around so much. The diseases and filth up there must have been something. I never figured that the neighbor miner was the one that killed Ep and I was glad it was Belinda and not Bill that shot him. Soupy was something else also. Always a con man I tell you. The count sure did get his when he paid Belinda that 6K. I guess he must have gone broke. The music and scenery were absolutely wonderful in this show. I also liked that whore that went to work for the priest and that funeral they had for him was wonderful. That guy walking down the street leading the procession was good. I was amazed that Bill went back to the Klondike and never was heard from again. And poor Meek dying in the water and those gold bars going down the river. Was sad but at least he and Bill did what they wanted to do. I enjoyed this and hope that they can do something with more seasons like this. Thanks for the info on GF’s dad. I didn’t know that. Too bad he didn’t hit it big
Well they sure did get rid of Edna quickly and I’m so glad that Mrs. Hughes helped Tom with that. It seems to me that it was sort of stupid to even bring her on. And she tried the same thing again and got a can tied to her ass for it LOL Let’s hope that Tom and Mary do get together in the end. I think they are perfect for each other. It sure as hell didn’t take any time for Gillingham to propose to Mary and I think they did that way to fast. But I was so glad that Mary didn’t accept and hopefully this will be the last of him. The kiss didn’t do much for Mary either. The bickering downstairs with Daisy, Alfred, Jimmy and Ivy is getting old real fast. Talk about school children tattling on each other. Get over it already. Really enjoyed Mrs. Hughes and Carson. They have such a good relationship and it was nice of her to give him a picture of his ex girlfriend. So the black band leader just had to step in and dance with Rose. She’s going to take a shine to him I’m sure of it. And what is up with Edith’s aunt reading her her beads because she came in at six in the morning. At least she finally got some from Michael. Anna. I feel so bad for that poor woman I can’t see straight and I so want them to get this fixed and do it pronto. Poor Bates doesn’t understand what’s going on and neither does any one in the entire family. They can all tell that something is up and I think Mrs. Hughes is going to have to come clean and they are going to have to calm Bates down so he doesn’t go off on the dude. I think they are doing this very well it’s just heartbreaking because Anna and Bates are so lovable. Good show again this week.
Well you got the comments in the right post LOL I cannot wait for next week when Monroe’s parents come. That look like it’s going to be real good especially when they find out about Nick. I really enjoyed this show and when they went to the CO I couldn’t figure out how he was going to play into this but they wrote it perfectly having both of them be manticores and then for the CO to die for the woman soldier, who yes is the reporter on The Bridge. I thought for sure she was the killer. What I don’t get is when they arrest these Wesen why they don’t change into their character It’s like they just fall over and play patsy LOL. I’m still not liking Juliette. I don’t care how much she helps them. She’s butt ugly. I really enjoyed Monroe and Rosalee as well making up with the family. I think the sister is going to be someone to reckon with in the future. She’s going to be on Monroe like white on rice if you ask me threatening him like that. Adlind was so good with the guy Renard is having her followed with. That spawn devil is getting close and I can’t wait. Real good episode.
I was glad to see Malia back as well and that they made Chin be front and center. Was real good. The lady that was in the bank and the son I think did end up with all the money because that was her husband that was hanging in the beginning, at least that’s what I got out of it. I don’t think that money is the main point of the show so if they never bring that up again it won’t matter. I also liked the flash backs and you are so right that IA will never give up on Chin. They have sort of pinned him into a corner with that if you ask me. It was good to see Steve’s father on also and how they were when Chin first got into the department. Kono was cute with that beer. It’s too bad they made Gabriel be the bad guy. I hope the continue how Chin and Malia didn’t see each other for all those years also. I guess it could have been because of Gabriel and I like how they met on the beach. Very good episode as usual. It was nice not having Steve and Danny be the center of the show.
Roxy is back!!! I think it would be a blast if they would put her on the show as a love interest for Reese. She was good on the show helping him with all the people after Sphinx on that flight. I think that the way they made Finch explain why the machine does what it does and why the people it deals with have the responsibility was excellent. At least now he might get out of his funk and get back to being the Reese we so enjoy. I really enjoyed the Sphinx character. What a little shit he is LOL Shaw with her old boss and getting the best of him as so good. The only part that they should have worked on a little better was having the passengers be ready for landing. It seemed to me they were still all watching a movie etc and bam!!! They’ve landed. Did you hear the kid in the aisle after Reese took out one of the guys say woa!! At least Reese was behaving like the killing machine we know. I also took note that Shaw says she likes her new employers because at least they haven’t tried to kill her yet. That gives some food for thought. Different type of PofI because it was so Reese eccentric but they needed to get it solved.
Poor Poor Anna. I felt so sorry for her being attacked by that visiting bastard valet. I sure didn’t see that coming at all. I thought he was just flirting with her. I think they wrote it the way that would have actually happened in that time period. Because she’s a servant I think there wasn’t much justice and I also know that she made the right call with Mrs. Hughes keeping this a secret from Bates. He would kill that dude and be back in prison. I tell you this show is so dark this season and the end of last by killing off two people and then this right in the beginning. I felt bad for Mrs. Patmore having the anxiety attack but I think Alfred has found his true calling and that’s to be a cook. And then there’s Molesley. Too funny with the gloves and that dumb idiot I would think being a footman is much better than being on the chain gang. The really showcased the difference between the Crawleys and the servants, as well as the singer. Funny how things like that happened back then and I just loved Cora telling Robert the singer will sit next to him and he will enjoy it. I knew that guy was cheating at the cards and how good of Gregson to figure it out and get all the money back. Also it made Robert finally realize he’s going to be part of the family whether he likes it or not, if the wedding takes place. I felt bad for Isobel at the dinner when she was talking about all the men being there except for Matthew. And you are so right, Lord Gillingham I think is the first to take a shine to Mary. Poor him having to be already engaged to another upper crust woman. LOL We shall see how this goes on. And I felt bad for Tom. He’s like a fish out of water and Edna senses it and is moving in for the kill. That woman didn’t learn a thing from last season. Did you notice Violet snoozing with her eyes open during the singing? LOL she is such a riot. I also really liked how everyone was talking through the concert. So boring that type of singing. Poor Anna.
LOL leave your comment in Hawaii Five-0 LOL I think it would be good if Zuri and Hank had a relationship as well but I think that is totally over. I was shocked when they turned out to be Wesen but the minute I saw the brothers eyes you knew they were. You are right about Juliette. She couldn’t wait to tell her friend. That chick as the loosest lips out. It was good that they made up but the fight was a little ridiculous. I thought where the hell is Nick in all of this? Guess they wanted her to show she has a little grit. Surprising that Rosalee has a checkered past and I do hope we learn more about it. I loved it when Monroe said that groups make him constipated LOL. Wu is always one of my favorites. I wish they would give him more air time. LOL the bloom off the rose to funny.
