Yes - if this is on The Netflix, I will probably check it out...
> What did you watch?
Chicago Med (recorded) - "Folie a Deux" (ep. #3.11). I quite liked this
episode... We find out more about why Sarah Reese is so nutty - her
estranged (astrophysicist!) father shows up in town, and immediately
"plays" Dr. Charles in order to get closer to his daughter... with
definitely less than "noble" motives. In fact, by the end of this we
get the strong feeling that Reese's Mom was correct to warn everyone to
stay away from this guy, as he's totally shady...
The titular storyline, in which Dr. Charles treats an apparently
paranoid and crazy woman has stabbed her neighbor unprovoked - though,
'natch, there's more going on here - was pretty compelling. There was
also a LOL exchange in between Det. Halstead and Dr. Charles in this
one - something like - Halstead: "I don't think she likes you."
Charles: "I get that alot."
Meanwhile, we get YA scene in which Manning once again acts like a
self-righteous lunatic: even when she's right about something, you
still just want to slap her. And after Noah Sexton misses a diagnosis,
Rhodes and Bekker have a long open-heart surgery to perform... which
ultimately leads to smoochies between them. Yuck.
The Blacklist - "Pattie Sue Edwards" (ep. 5.15). A pretty episode. The
Blacklister storyline involves a woman who is going around infecting
people with a deadly "designer" virus that is both highly contageous
and kills fast. Meanwhile, Lizzie and her new cop "mole" set up a trap
for Garvey... but things don't go as planned for Lizzie's cop friend.
And Red has to "wheel and deal" in order to avoid an IRS audit of one
of his shady business... In the end, Lizzie has seemingly found her
SEAL Team - "No Man's Land" (ep. #15). Honestly I didn't really follow
this episode. Something about the team finding a money stash which gets
them closer(?) to who killed Echo team, and them using an Afghan girl
to do it. Meanwhile, they introduce Dawn Olivieri as a new potential
love interest for Jason (after Jason spoils the mood with Mandy by
unnecessarily waking her up while she is sleeping!)...
Recorded for later: The Magicians.
"Three light sabers? Is that overkill? Or just the right amount
of "kill"?" - M-OC, "A Perilous Rescue" (ep. #2.9), LSW:TFA (08-10-2017)
