What did you watch?
A very long workday, so not much:
Charmed (recorded) - "Curse Words" (ep. #2.10). Lately, it's strongly
felt like they finally realized that Maggie is by far their best
character, so they've been emphasizing Sarah Jeffery and deemphasizing
the other two (season #1 felt like annoying Mel-dominated...) - that
was certainly the case in this episode: it was Maggie-dominated...
In this one, Jordan is about to turn 26, so Maggie goes all out to
save him from dying from his family "curse", and mostly succeeds.
Meanwhile, Mel goes on an "adventure" with her deadbeat dad (I didn't
realize before this episode that he's not actually Maggie's father, and
that Maggie and Macy are in fact *full* sisters...) and come across
Peyton List The Elder (who's looking *old* all of a sudden, and she's
only 33!!). And Abigael continues to pull shenanigans as far as Harry
is concerned, and Macy looks on jealously...
I first watched the series retrospective, which I mostly liked, even
though it was filled with way to much backslapping and "mutual
admiration" bullshit. I'm also pretty sure that at least some of it was
scripted - e.g. am I to believe that Diaz was *really* Katherine
McNamara's "favorite villain"?!! Diaz was a *sh*t* villain, and I'm
pretty sure there's nobody that likes him!!
The finale has been covered by Fred in a separate thread. But I
agree with him that this was a very *SOLID* finale, that managed to
bring nearly everybody who's ever played an important part on "Arrow"
(well, at least among the eventual "good guys") back for at least a
relatively meaningful cameo. They even managed to wrap up one or two of
the side-characters' storylines.
I have no idea how any of this will play into the Mia spinoff
(assuming it's greenlit), or what that ending meant for Diggle (another
spinoff, perhaps?!!), but all in all this was a satisfying sendoff for
the series (except possibly for the "FOllie" shipper haters, and they
are definitely out there!!).
Recorded for later: Just "ARROW!!" which I ended up watching live anyway...
"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)
