Chicago Med (recorded) - "Mountains and Molehills", the episode from
Wait! "Tick paralysis" is a *thing*?! Yikes! Meanwhile, Noah Sexton
loses his first patient, in a development anyone could see coming a
mile away. Goodwyn cleverly manipulates a patient to get the treatment
she needs. And Sarah Reese is acting crazier and crazier - next
episode, somebody is going to get benched, so I'm assuming it will be
No Ava Bekker in this one which was a relief.
soaps: DOOL - If they think this new storyline with Vivian and "Stefan"
is compelling, they're dead wrong - this episode, they drag Gabi into
GH - This was mostly prospective mayor drama, IIRC.
Forsaken (iTunes) - I followed up Tuesday's "Sadie's Last Days on
Earth" with Morgan Taylor Campbell's recent "drama" flick.
This was a modern "retelling" (really more like "based on") of
"Macbeth", but set in the world of teens and (Texas?) high school
football. It was produced by Mar Vista, which leads me to think that
they made it with Lifetime in mind... and Lifetime must have said "No!"
While Campbell is decent in this (though not as good as in
"Sadie's..."), this wasn't very good. The worst angle of all was the
*complete rewriting* the ending of "Macbeth" to give these creepy kids
a "happy"(?!) ending. (The movie also basically ignores the original
theme of Macbeth as well...) What rubbish!
LA to Vegas (recorded) - "Pilot". I gather this was mostly hated around
here, though I didn't think the pilot was too bad - there were some
funny moments: for example, I liked the captain taking down Freddy
Benson from "iCarly". I do question the wisdom of making the
stripper/hooker part of the main cast, though... Anyway, I'd probably
watch this again, though I won't go out of my way to watch it.
The Blacklist - "The Informant". The "Lizzie tracking down the people
that murdered Tom" parts of this episode were enjoyable - however, it
was disappointing that Lizzie let the guy at the end get the jump on
her so easily... :/ The "Ressler is still being blackmailed by the
Cleaner Dude" parts were not enjoyable, at least until Red showed up to
bail him out.
SEAL Team - Covered by Ice. The interesting part of this episode was
Daniella Alonso playing the nuclear physicist Doc.
Chicago P.D. - Also covered by Ice. This was a weird episode - I
wondered at several points whether Burgess and
she-who-smiles-inappropriately were going to come to blows... But then
they were all "buddy-buddy" at the end (pukeworthy!). Madalyn Horcher,
who has shown up in several things I've watched lately shows up in this
as the (stupid!) hooker they're trying to save...
Recorded for later: Lots! (for this time of the year!) - The
Librarians, Vikings, and The Magicians (season premiere!!).
"Three light sabers? Is that overkill? Or just the right amount
of "kill"?" - M-OC, "A Perilous Rescue" (ep. #2.9), LSW:TFA (08-10-2017)
