I gotta give this episode the "worst of the season" award so far. The Kim stuff is just getting brutally bad. The Reza storyline paid off, but it was kinda painful getting there. The Jack/Nina scenes were very good, which made the episode watchable. Even the surefire Palmer storyline was pretty weak. I just don't buy Sherry showing up within 3-4 hours of a nuclear threat. I think I got the biggest laugh out of Miguel's Mortal Kombat skills. He's a budding musician and a self-defense expert! In summary, it was a step down, but definitely not "bad". It certainly wasn't enough to make me change the channel. Here's hoping things improve next week.
I found it much easier for me to just give anytime Kim appears this season the PIP treatment and watch a hockey game on full until the scene ends. Does a show like this really need useless T&A as filler?
Yeah, now that the Reza thing has taken a step forward (who called the father as the evil guy? As a perennial hanger-on, all I did was agree), the Kim storyline is now the worst thing about this show. And boy did they spend a lot of time on that this week!
I'm not sure why, but Sherry just really annoyed me tonight. Whereas last year, I was all "Ooo, how evil she is!" But now, I was like "Ugh, why? What are they doing?"
I agree on The West Wing. Sorkin went out with a bang - the last two episodes this season may well have been the best yet. Whomever takes over is going to have some huge shoes to fill - and they better not fuck this storyline up.
