FBI: 3x08 Walk the Line

This episode felt out of place compared to previous ones and last season. I'm not sure if the writers are purposely trying to show underlying casual racism, or they're setting something up where OA is able to infiltrate an organisation as a disillusioned FBI agent. I suggest the latter, not out of naivety, but because the writing in this episode was that sloppy. It felt like a set-up. Previously Isobel and Jubal would have had OA's back, they would have at least said "this sucks, it's not right, but you've got to do it because the system is a mess" but instead they sided completely with Trenholm.

I don't like Trenholm. I feel that she has made her way up the ladder by stepping on people and caring more about making arrests and a name for herself. She didn't give a damn about the arrest they may have messed up, only caring if it could affect her upcoming promotion, and every time she so much as looks at Jubal it feels like she's playing on their past relationship. It really felt like that was what was happening in this episode; Jubal was never going to disagree with her.

MacGyver: 5x14 H20 + Orthophosphates + Mission City + Corrosion + Origins

Oh noes, a show mentioned Black Lives Matter a few brief times again, so we must claim this is a "woke" episode again.

So here's what the episode was actually about; as the summary explains; "Mac and Desi travel with Bozer to his childhood home when his aunt dies in a tragic accident, however, they soon discover she may have been murdered for trying to expose the city’s contaminated water supply".

Funnily enough, that is what the episode is about! It's all about an investigation into a contaminated water supply.

MacGyver: 5x12 Royalty + Marriage + Vivaah Sanskar + Zinc + Henna

I feel that someone needs to make the point that there were just a few brief comments made at the beginning of the episode, when Matty was giving the mission to the team, about Black Lives Matter and the Megan and Harry. That was the only mention of either topic. The episode, the plot and even the couple getting married did not have any relation to either topics. While the groom was a white British man, the bride is not Black nor is she American. The plot is much more complex, and to claim that this episode is just about "being woke" says more about the person watching it than the episode itself.

S.W.A.T.: 4x02 Stakeout (2)

Appreciate that they're following covid and not ignoring it/skipping ahead, especially that they're not forgetting about Annie's cancer leaving her immune-compromised. Hopefully, the storyline will make people more aware of people who are immune compromised.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: 22x01 Guardians and Gladiators

I was surprised to see that they actually made Liv accountable for her actions. Most of the time TV shows always make an unknown NPC the scapegoat, so well done to the writers and producers for having the guts for using the main character. Glad to see the show is still keeping up with current issues and not shying away from them after 22 years.

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

I am so sick of films like this getting comments of 'all men = bad' as if for decades women haven't had to put up with the role being reversed. They also seem to forget that the main character is Harley Quinn. She is far from being a saint, she's an anti-hero and she's not wearing her good girl pants in this one.

Justice League: War

I have no idea why so many people trashed the dialogue of this film because some of it was fantastic and so on point with the comics. The banter between Green Lantern and Batman was absolutely brilliant. The only dialogue which was really off was Diana's; I think they were trying to make her sound out of sync having not been in man's world for that long but it just ended up making her sound really awkward and high and mighty.

How many Christmas stories/cliches can you fit in one episode? :grin:

Blue Bloods: 8x15 Legacy

"Every woman has a version of the same story."

Sad, but true. A very poignant conversation between Erin and Nicky at the end and it was nice to see a parent trusting their child to handle the situation themselves but still being there to support them.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: 20x14 Part 33

As a survivor of IPV (intimate partner violence) aka emotional abuse, this was a difficult episode to watch and when I saw so many comments here I expected to see people complaining. It was good to see most people complaining about how awful the victim was treated, how characters who previously showed empathy were terrible. The thing is that most people don't consider IPV a thing, just as there are still people who don't consider domestic violence real. While it was horrible seeing Rollins and Stone act as they did they are just surrogates for real people and SVU has always been a way to bring real-life issues to light via the medium of TV. Please remember that. It wasn't a bad script, it was reality being brought to screen.

Thankfully at least here in the UK people have woken up to the reality that IPV is real and it real and lasting repercussions on victims. It's now illegal and a case like this wouldn't have been questioned as much. I hope that this episode made some people realise the reality that some people live/d with every day.
