LHF is not an Antoine Fuqua joint. Expectations are low.

I knew that scene with Adama and Sky's mom was going too good to be true. What a dumb left turn this show has taken. I thought for once, like literally the first time in the history of bad genre fiction, two parties were going to solve potential differences via diplomacy and not ludicrously heightened drama brought on by contrived inability to communicate (kind of how this season started with EJO's distrust of Coulson), but then they had to go and drop that nonsense. I guess you gotta have a big dumb finale. There hasn't really been enough conflict brewing towards the end of this season to warrant the hard left turn IMO. As long as the finale is fun all will be forgiven I suppose, but the storytelling in general this year started out good but got real dumb.

First half was good. Not sure how you can justify saying the 2nd half was that good tho. It's been literal nonsense and deus ex bullshit since Adama showed up.

Oh, c'mon. You love it.

I know I did. Kyle MacLachlan's scenery chewing performance was amazing this episode, it's just too bad this is probably the last we'll see of him. "This is me calm, Phil!"

My only complaint is they had him transform back from Mr Hyde too fast.

It would also have been nice to have him "Hulk out" a good bit more, but I guess TV budget limitations are what they are so...

I'd have liked to have seen more Hyde too. About all he did was bear hug his wife. Gee, a wonder if the woman he literally sewed back together after she was dissected and placed in to like, 19 seperate jars is gonna come back or not? Nawwww.

So what do you guys think? Is Simmons going to have powers next season, or did she just not want to return next season?

jw_6179 wrote:Gee, a wonder if the woman he literally sewed back together after she was dissected and placed in to like, 19 seperate jars is gonna come back or not? Nawwww.

Yeah, I was thinking that too.

Woman who comes back from being chopped into pieces can probably come back from a crushed spine or whatnot.

That said, she apparently doesn't heal on her own. She has to be fixed by someone, and then has to drain the life out of someone to actually heal.


I too was disappointed with Hyde. I mean, granted, it's hard to make Hyde NOT goofy, but Jesus, was he goofy.

Nah. TAHITI isn't very reliable. As soon as someone pushes him(probably Ward), he'll start remembering.

That finale was so far beyond full retard I can't even believe it. Was I the only one literally cheering at my TV screen? I felt like a black guy at the movie theater. The plotting in the 2nd half of the season was clumsy to say the least but who fucking cares, that finale was probably better than all comic movies to date, combined. I mean, sure they probably could have let Paul Atreides hulk out a bit longer, but did you guys even fucking see what we got there? Too much of that would be like staring at the fucking sun! If I were in charge of Emmys I would give every single fucking one to him for like the next 3-5 years. Every category. People that don't watch this show have my utmost, absolutely most sincere condolences. They missed out on maybe the most important television event of our lifetime.

Are you being sarcastic?

If not, could you be more specific about the things you thought were so amazing?

I mean, I didn't dislike it. But your reaction seems disproportionate.

It's getting hard to justify even replying to you Ender. Even when I agree with the masses and like the same dumb stuff you guys like I still have to vindicate myself?

I don't care if I went blind, I wouldn't look away.

Also, that finale was pretty fucking amazing. I don't see how you're so blasé, you must have a heart of stone, Ender. Kyle Mclaughlin's performance was at a fucking 11 and that was fantastic. The comic-booky shit going on was great, I was actually surprised when Coulson got his hand lopped off, but then again, it's fucking Marvel comics. He'll just get a robotic claw or some shit which is awesome as hell. Actually, fuck it, give that man the Satan Claw.

It's not like there was a artificial tissue generation machine in Age of Ultron they could use to just make him a new hand.

His performance was fine. I just didn't like the way Hyde looked. Which just looked like the same guy with different colored hair.

New season started. Best season premier of the series. So glad they went full on comic book and there are people with super powers and monster looking dudes running around. The show is so much better now than when it started.

Yo, so I just watched the first episode of season 3. This might actually be the best comic show on TV. This show is on a whole other level.

I figured out last week that

the Doctor was Lash. I wish I'd posted it, for credibility. But yeah, it was obvious last week that Lash was someone inside SHIELD. And when the Strucker kid ran out of the building scared shitless, I knew what had happened.

I really can't believe that we're 3 years into this fucking show and May is still pretty close to being the worst character I've ever seen on any tv show. You would think they would at least TRY to make her not suck, but there she is every fucking week sucking.

That episode they did with Gemma on Ego was pretty rad. I think it's hilarious how A. Fitz and Simmons are basically just taking turns being tortured by the writers and B. how maximum m'lady zone'd Fitz is. I honestly don't think it's possible to be more in the friend zone than he is.

I keep thinking it's weird how Jemma insists that Fitz stop trying to save the guy just for her sake.

You know, there's a guy who's, like, a hero astronaut trapped on an evil planet. You think maybe that guy deserves to be rescued regardless of whether anyone is trying to make you happy or not?

Potentially stupid question: So Ward has been going thru all the trouble of getting the band back together this season to "cut the head off of SHIELD" I believe I can quote him as saying. So I'm at the beginning of last week's episode now and Ward just murdered Coulson's girlfriend, while she was sitting at the table next to Coulson... Couldn't he have just murdered Coulson instead? I haven't watched farther, so I dunno if this is explained or rationalized later, but if it's not then what in the fuck???
