Definitely better than last week, even with some glaring technical inaccuracies...

6.02 Blacklist Review from Talk - SPOILERS WITHIN - )
roximonoxide: (adorkable)
With all the hype it's hard not to go into this episode with high hopes and the first half doesn't let down. Terrance is back briefly and I couldn't be happier about it! I'm not much for stunt casting but Nelly has already proved himself on this show and in my books he's among the best guest stars they've had.

Oh my...

Mac went impossibly easy on Stella over this. I'm getting awfully tired of the picking and choosing they're doing that winds up only making Mac look like a total hypocrite. Also irritating that it's hardly explained why Mac felt obligated to follow her halfway around the world, but then, this show has a bit of a habit of doing that.

Ultimately a pretty weak episode.

So crime and an entire office of civil servants take the day off so Lindsay can squeeze out a little bundle of something or other.

We learn early on that Danny's two week suspension is up and yet Lindsay is freshly back from Montana, so how exactly Danny spent his two weeks off with her while she was in another state we're really not sure, but asked to suspend belief again.

ETA: half way through watching the show here, I learned that CBS leaked it on their website. Silly kids. I wonder if that will effect their ratings, or if there was some rhyme or reason to doing that.

ETA2: It's damn funny that they went out of their way to make mention that the kid looks like Danny, not the mother. ^_^ Lucky for the kid. Danny's the pretty one.

My review from talk, plus some personal blog extras. ^_^

The episode is kind of a nice mix of my favorite characters, but towards the end it leans more heavily on Mac. That’s all right of course, but it’s kind of a shame since Hawkes' philosophies on racism were getting pretty interesting and then got nixed.

The crime itself wasn't the most difficult nut to crack, nor did it feel like it weighed heavily on the initial victim, but the underlying themes of the case brought some tension to the whole show that really brings out the best in the characters.

Here's my review from talk with a few edits

This episode might have been really intriguing if this wasn't the umpteenth time we've seen Mac take on the bigwigs the same way. cut for 'The Past, Present and Murder' spoilers )

something else I'd like to add )

Not that I suspect this will draw too much interest --Here's my review from talk!

Well the case didn't blow my socks off, but for the most part I'm still pretty keen on tonight's episode --I'll over look some suspended belief and minor plot holes because of someones ability to maintain a little continuity, and make use of some under-used characters.

I might start posting my occasional reviews from talk over here...Maybe, just in hopes of a better discussion. *snicker*

It's another one case week, which seems to be the norm these days, but I will give them credit for trying to branch out from the typical cases and remind us that NYC is home to more than just upper class white folks.

Warning you about spoilers for tonight's ep here and under the cut.

Ummm ok. That was.. an episode. Blue flu, lots of interesting Adam. FAR to little Flack. Look, I'm sure there are a lot of good things to say about this episode but after having just seen it once so far here's all I'm left wondering about... )

ETA:And another thing!! )
