Why did I like the "Mac Poirot" sequence Friday? (other than it was pretty dang funny) well...
1. It didn't deal with Jason or Sonny's Pain and...2. it didn't deal with Jason or Sonny's pain.
Plus, Mac Daddy was there!! I swear, when they gave JJY the scripts for this week he was probably like, what! Now I have to cancel all my golf games!! LOL
The boat scene was interesting, but no one told the writers that the cops put everyone in the room when they at least have an idea of what/who did it. This was an exercise in pulling everyone out of the hospital or wherever in the middle of DECEMBER to go on a boat that...basically doesn't even sway with the water. But, we did get Spinelli imagining each one doing Lisa Niles in-- and Anthony had some pretty fun lines as well. Now Olivia is going back (probably to look for an earring) and Dante catches her! ah HA!
Dreamy glovesLet's discuss the other aspects of the show. The PAIN....the ANGST---the overwhelming need to go back to the place you were abused as a kid. I personally think that whole Sonny segment was to have he and Kate get into bed, but that's the cynic in me. I suppose it puts to 'rest' his deep-seeded issues. Maybe now Sonny will really import coffee and start a group for 'ex-mobsters'. It's weird, but all I can see from the whole "week of Deke" are Kate's gorgeous red leather gloves. Oh, I need help..yes I do.
I'm mad as hell...and I see Franco.Jason. Anger-Boy Quartermaine!! How Taggert would love thee!! Does he have a giant Tony-Jones type tumah growing in his head (shaped like Franco??) OR is there another piece of the car--say, the glove compartment still in there? I say it's Franco's ability to be a worm in his head --crawling in and forcing him to be all mad and pissy. Of course, we do have to remember Sam is the real one that deserves her pain-- and she did get a bit by herself while watching the DVD. I think Franco told her that she was carrying Franco Jr. Or, maybe he was dressed as a woman playing the banjo, who knows.
The giant elephant in this week's show? Mayor FLOYD showing up with Diane. Changing his name to Prescott "Press"--get it? and oogling the strippers in Jake's. Um, I do give the writers credit because that info wasn't in any spoilers. He just showed up...which in a way was pretty comical. If he IS the stripper-stalker it will be the least surprising thing ever.
I have to say it's difficult to watch now, knowing that it will all change after the new guys get to the helm. Giddy with anticipation -- and basically not even paying much attention to the stuff going on until Feb. The Lady in White thing? eh... although I'm happy as heck Helena will be on, I'm wondering if that's even going to go anywhere. Same with "Ewan"-- by the time his face is shown (instead of his abs) we really won't care. Carly and Shawn? eh-- whatever. Michael will have some PAIN soon to deal with so that might be sidetracked. Shawn's getting a little buddy of his own. Jax will pop back in. Luke will still be on vacation and Lucky will follow in his footsteps. yawn.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: I'm going with the cop and Sonny in the old house. I loved that the guy knew Sonny as a kid, didn't recognize him and told him the whole "Deke" story backwards. Sonny's face, when realizing the entire neighborhood still thinks he's the bad guy in the story was awesome. Good use of history and unexpected.
RUNNER UP: The Boat Show...because I giggled a lot and Matt looked like he had a Star Trek shirt on!
NOT the SCENE of the WEEK: I have to go with the one that made me laugh OUT LOUD for real-- and it certainly wasn't written funny. When SKate 'made out' and fell on the bed? I just-- burst out laughing. Not sure why, but it just seemed so... forced, inserted and weird. Sorry SKate fans but it was a miss with me. (maybe if Kate had kept her red gloves on I would have loved it?!)
