The tester was reluctant, but warmed as time went. Just like a woman, ja?

The red shorts. Nice throwback.

The hotel is dressed middle-eastern but the concrete construction in the garage is English. A lot of indoor sets saves location fees and setups.

I stopped watching because the schoolyard antics were effing distracting.

The Asian actor was uncool and very green. I couldn’t buy his characterization.

Damn good episode.

That last scene was priceless! 😂

Andy Wong steals every scene!

Venus is such a useless “”””, but she looks pretty enough.

Often Dr Watson is portrayed as the Everyman who marvels at Holmes’ deductive capability. But in reality he uses his reasoning skills less as counterpoint. I despise the character for that. Watson is smart, he just needs to get out of his shell more.

Bodyguard (2018) S1 E6

No, not convincing enough. But the hero must prevail I suppose. If the show could engender treating his PTSD and relationships, it would garner more sympathy for his plight.

Bodyguard (2018) S1 E5

For all the drama, it’s the not talking that makes this unrelatable.

It boggles that a cop with diagnosed PTSD would be serving in sensitive profile post such as portrayed. The psych who signed off on this officer should be reviewed for cause. The officer reassigned, handling this job and PTSD is a cocktail ripe for tv.

I can handle hedonism, and debauchery. But apathy and snobbery I despise to the (2x+y)n degree. The show wouldn’t suffer if they were cut out. I ffwd through to the better scenes and thereby waste less time on the idiocy of producers.

TR is too small. CIRT (which is what it’s based on) started as two teams, expanded to 3 in 2010. And covers Melbourne and regional Victoria. Now it’s 24/7 and covers several areas the regular police can’t handle.

Rush (2008) S3 E17

Why do they write that cops break protocol for family. The cliche is so tired it’s gone to bed.

Rush (2008) S3 E12

Where did they tie off the rappel? Fake.

Apparently this is how the Victoria CIRT handles a bus hijacking. Trying to roadblock a bus with a car is incredulous, and circling an active scene without setting a perimeter is unreal.

Lawson really cocked it up. A cop who can’t anticipate a criminal’s mind is no use.

Rush (2008) S2 E4

Michael is a gullible ass around women, and the abduction is a farce. A little HPEMS would solve both the vehicle chase and the battery powered tool.

Rush (2008) S1 E13
Rightback 1 points 2 months ago. (Contains Spoilers)

Everything about the prisoner escort, the lawyer pickup and the safehouse detail is so sloppy and unreal. This show couldn’t portray tac response in any kind of realistic way even if was appointed to them in small teaspoonful.

As good an engineer George is, he is totally inept at the psychology of AI. The seeds of destruction are in his own hands.

I did anticipate the twist. J3 could never be as realistically developed as portrayed.

Crossing Lines (2013) S3 E11

Trying to disarm a man by approaching him is worse than stupid. The script might be awful, but it doesn’t mean the character should be. Grrr!

Crossing Lines (2013) S3 E12
Rightback 1 points 3 months ago. (Contains Spoilers)

The ‘through story’ motives of characters sometimes distract from the moment. And when a show gets cancelled it never gets solved. This show reinvented itself for S3, but the cost I suspect was still too high for the ratings it was receiving, so it was chopped at the season’s conclusion.

Sex trafficking networks are widespread and insidious. Worse than hydras.

Crossing Lines (2013) S3 E6

Unreal. Infectious disease, but infection protocols not in place? Should have Qx the entire boat.

Smart cops never approach from front or back of a car, but from the side - more spread to control and less likely to be run over.

Crossing Lines (2013) S2 E10
Rightback 2 points 3 months ago*.

The episode was fairly well done. The mix of action, drama, and suspense was good. As in much of TV the editing was swift, cut, cut, cut. But I think the human beats could have been left in a little longer.

Crossing Lines (2013) S1 E9

Smart people making bad choices. Too derivative. Nothing left to to surprise. I was expecting plot twists - but everything was straightforwardly unexciting.

Crossing Lines (2013) S1 E4

The premise is okay. But I suppose Interpol isn’t what they were trying to emulate. A fictitious law enforcement team answerable to the ICC rather than the General Secretariat..

Of course policework, even internationally, takes time and effort to solve cases. An hour seems lightning fast.

The only thing worse than the action is the script.

40’ of flex tube for breathing? Hello?

The green one has longer arms.

The Mandalorian (2019) S2 E8
Rightback 0 points 11 months ago.

The Mandalorian is entirely Jon Favreau’s baby. Depending on how geeky a SW fan he is he will likely follow canon up to a point and create new items for the SW universe to mull over.

But does anyone else feel a connection between EP 8 and the fight between Kara and the Cylons?

The Old Guard (2020)

Not sure if the end was a gotcha to help sink the hook or not. But I 100% agree, a sequel would/will be worth waiting for!

Rightback 5 points 1 year ago.

Having read the graphic novels I can see how the hook came to be. The sequel will be highly anticipated.

The Old Guard (2020)
Rightback 1 points 1 year ago. (Contains Spoilers)

This has the same slick feel of 6 Underground, but better plotting and great casting without the Michael Bay over-the-top action without cause.

There is a major plot twist that is different from the graphic novel, but I won’t spoil it here. Looking forward to seeing how the sequel pans out!!
