Excellent departure from formula finds the characters under pressure and against the clock as Lemond Bishop waits to be arrested, and Eli Gold waits for the new scandal to break. Thrilling from start to finish, and all the regulars get a chance to shine. Really love the pairing of Nathan Lane and Matt Czuchry. 10/10
The is the first episode that is primarily a case-of-the-week story. And, as such, it pretty much works. The villain has a very vague weapon (what’s up with that?) but the story zips along and keeps the interest. Some of the sidebar stuff works, and some completely falls flat. But the show is enjoyable and it looks positively gorgeous. 8/10
Best performance in this week’s Arrow? Katie Cassidy, without a doubt.
John Glover. Lacks cohesion, despite having many good scenes/moments. The case of the week only really got interesting at the very end, and seemed like a by-the-numbers effort being used as filler between scenes about the new affair storyline. Delighted that we had no scenes with Kalinda’s husband this time around. 8/10
After watching something as well written and exhilarating as that episode of Justfied I feel enthused about storytelling. And life in general.
Boyd Crowder is one of the best TV characters ever. Walton Goggins is a true star, and this is one of his best scenes.
It started off quite weak, but the episode got progressively better as it went on. And, by the end, was funny and cute. All the stuff at the start (with the regulars playing silly games) just wasn’t as funny as the show clearly thought it was. But the stuff with Holt and Terry was spot on. The first laugh I had in the episode came from the Kyra Sedgwick character when she told Terry he should just lie down. That was a great gag, perfectly set up. And from there, the episode started to make me chuckle or laugh with most gags. I also loved the twist/reveal thing they did with the elevator list. 7/10
