- The Montecito Jingle: When the autistic savant kept going over to the monitor to hear Monica's jingle, I thought the song sounded a lot like Rockwell's "Somebody's Watching Me." I think this is fairly appropriate considering Mike and Danny's high-tech security spread.
- Sam and her ex-BF at the funeral: The two evil you-know-whats were fighting over the dead casino host's body to get his precious black book of whales. OK, that's another over-the-top scene using a dead body in a casket as a prop. Did anyone catch Bree on Desperate Housewives earlier this season? I think we have us a trend!
- Jake: Welcome back, Bailey Chase! I was beginning to think that Mary and Jake's entire relationship and breakup was going to happen off screen! Too bad he showed up only to have Mary dump him on his adorable behind.
- A few quickies: The Green Phantom? More like George of the Jungle! The playing of Styx's "Come Sail Away" loved it. Dennis DeYoung's voice gets to me every time. And then there was Sam's ex-hubby working with Ed. Excuse me: I like the twist, but when did NBC become the Dean Cain network of choice? I just saw him playing the bad guy on Law & Order: SVU last week!
I so did not see T-Bag's retaliation against Abruzzi coming. I seriously jumped when he slit his throat. That's gonna add another kink in Scofield's plan. That is, if he can ever get around the fact that his brother just got tossed in the shoe while trying to keep the crew from getting busted. That can't be good since they've only got a few days to get out of Dodge and their main form of transportation may or may not be lying dead on a concrete floor. Sure, Abruzzi was no saint he did put through orders that accidentally led to the death of an innocent father and son but he did seem oddly obsessed by the rust-stain image of Jesus, which actually convinced him to give T-Bag a second chance. Meanwhile, in other interesting developments, Veronica might have found herself a bit of hope with the not-so-bad FBI guy who suddenly gained a conscience. That is, if he lives to meet with her. C-Note tried to poison Sucre against Michael by convincing him that Michael is trying to shut him out. That, on top of the news that Sucre's gal, Marie Cruz, is pregnant with his kid but is considering marrying someone else. Yeah, he's having a great week. And we had to watch a disgusting Bellick scarf down a cheeseburger while he was bribing Tweener. Gross. But they made up for it by having Michael half-naked and swimming. (All I could think was that my friend who I am sure is not alone in watching the show mostly for the gratuitous Wentworth scenes was probably home delightedly rewinding her TiVo.) We got to see a lot of the tattoo that way and speaking of the tat, will that have more info on it? Because there haven't been many recent revelations and that is a mega-tattoo. If they are busting out soon, seems like that much tattoo would be featured more often than it has. Something smaller might have worked well too, no? Angel Cohn
I'm not the biggest 3-D fan in the world, but I do love when they take old footage and blend it with new stuff. So seeing Rod Serling brought to life was pretty cool. And the 3-D wasn't that bad it was kinda cool with the paintings. Just wish that the one scene with the hand pushing out of the painting through the brown paper wrapping had been in 3-D. That was damn creepy and if it had come popping out of the screen, it woulda been really cool. But actually the story was really compelling tonight with the visions of the woman who was literally stabbed in the back while her child was watching. My only problem was that I so knew the murderer was John Shea the second I saw him. Sorry, dude, but once you've played Lex Luthor, I'm immediately suspicious of your motives on any show. But how it all came together with the boy not really being his son and that he killed his real kid because he had AIDS was unique and quite engaging. Now that is a sweeps-worthy story line. And on the home front, Allison chats with her hubby's dead father about his business opportunity and realizes that while he was a bit of a dud as a dad when he was still alive and kicking, he's actually trying to do right by his only son postmortem. Guess he was right to "let" his son marry Allison in the first place: How else would he get his messages across from beyond? Not every wife has these handy-dandy psychic powers. AC
