February 1, 2007: Meet Market Season 7, Episode 14

Miss me? Nah, didn't think so. You guys did such a great job with the recaps last week, I seriously thought about making myself busy again and just letting you write it up again. But I couldn't go another week without CSI. I kind of wish I did, though. Now, I told you last week that I would watch the episode over the weekend and then comment on it, and I didn't. So here's my comment. I watched the first 20 minutes, and then decided I'd much rather be playing Madden. Does that say enough? I couldn't rely on that option this week, though, so I toughed it out. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz How's that for a recap of this week's episode? OK, I'm just kidding. I'll discuss it a little bit. I'm sure it will be split down the middle with people that liked it and those that didn't. But I have to admit, last week there were more comments about the episode being boring than I can remember in a long time. I can certainly picture many of those comments being cut and pasted into this week's commentary, too. The whole body-harvesting idea creeps me out every time it's used in a show. Usually, we hear about organs being removed, but tissue, too? And man, let's hope I never need a new hip or something. Who wants to find out they got a diseased hip? That can't be pleasant. Overall, I just didn't buy the story as a whole. Am I just not smart enough for this show? (Don't answer that. No please, don't answer that.) I understand that the guy just out of prison wanted to start a new life, so he thought that killing himself was the only way. But he then goes and digs up a casket and burns a body that looks like him? Seriously? That turns into a separate case against the mortician ( Gordon Clapp of NYPD Blue fame) and, of course, who couldn't see it coming that both he and the lab were a little bit shady? Speaking of harvesting, wasn't that a whole story line this season on Nip/Tuck? And who should appear in this episode but John Hensley, who plays Matt on that show. Interesting coincidence, but at least he didn't have a part in that plotline. The whole paying for a "relationship" line was a slow-moving drag until the very end when we learned that he misread the situation the entire time. But again, you kind of knew the dead woman was his mother long before it was revealed. I'm not usually the quickest at figuring out the cases, as I like to just watch it for what it is and don't usually try to think ahead that much. However, this is three shows in a row now (sans last week, of course) that my fiancée has told me exactly what the ending was going to be long before it was revealed. That's not good, as the element of suspense has always been what's kept me interested in the show. For instance, I saw the words "difficult," "hurt," "eyes," and "I'll miss you" in Grissom's letter to Sara. "I'll miss you" is interesting indeed. Hmmm, is Gil walking away from her? That keeps me interested. And the picture of the girl sent to Keppler could also keep me interested. Of course, then the preview for next week might have just flat-out said that he was involved in the girl's death. So, one minute I was intrigued and two minutes and two seconds later, I wasn't anymore. I also really need to get TiVo, as I couldn't make out the last words said while Mike was in the mortuary. The first person to tell me gets um, gets the satisfaction of being the first person to tell me. Isn't that a gift in itself? Until next week, friends. show less
