April 25, 2007: No One to Watch Over Me Season 3, Episode 18

Patricia and Jake came on before the show started to talk about the previous show and to offer their condolences for the victims and families of the Virginia Tech killings last week. It was a nice touch and something I wished they hadn't needed to do. The opening scene with Allison on her sleigh bed in a snowstorm was utterly reminiscent of the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I loved that movie, so it made me very excited to see this show, however hard it was to watch. So when Allison found out there was a missing girl after she had spent the night shivering in bed with Joe, I thought, "I'll bet she's lost somewhere very cold and frozen." I pick these things up so quickly! Well, "cold and frozen" as in a freezer.... Joe went back to work after the terrible hostage crisis with Adam Goldberg's character and found he was unable to cope. He thought he was fine, but he was still grieving and probably a little bit in denial. He spent most of the episode lashing out at his family as he tried to grapple with his emotions. Joe looked like he was really getting back into the swing of it at work as he sat in his office in a pink shirt. Unfortunately he was so distracted by his grief, he could only play solitaire. We got to see a lot of the DA and Scanlon in this ep, and I was pleased since they have been kind of MIA for a few weeks. I felt an immense sadness watching this week's show. The body they found frozen in the freezer was startling and more than a little upsetting. Sometimes I wish there were only happy shows. In light of recent events, these gruesome dramas can be too much for me. Though, if there has to be a creepy show, I pick this one, because they're so normal most of the time, padding around their house in their slippers and the girls bickering at the kitchen table. You always feel like you're going through it with family. They seem familial to me. Speaking of family, Ariel completely pissed me off when she was going through her dad's drawers. She was so snotty and so like a teenager. Not that I'm around them a lot, but I sure do remember how I was at that age, and it wasn't pretty. My poor mother, what she must have gone through with four daughters. Hopefully, she's forgiven me, as I've grown up to be such a lovely lady. (Oh, I sound like Mrs. Brady!) All three of the girls played a part in this ep, with Bridgette telling pretty bad knock-knock jokes, Ariel not wanting to hear them and Maria indulging Bridge by constantly asking, "Who's there?" Some favorite lines: - Maria to Joe, who'd fallen asleep on the couch: "You're laying on Mr. Snooky." (I just loved that bit!) - Manuel: "This is a closed case." Allison: "Apparently not to the victim or else I'd be sleeping a helluva lot better." - Joe on googling himself: "I don't exist, but there's a guy with my name who's all the rage in g*y p*rn." - I cracked up when little Jennie, abandoned in the hotel room, fell asleep while watching Frasier on TV. (Kelsey Grammer, aka Frasier, is the exec producer of the show, but you all know that!) Though when she made her way as a young adult to Mexico to see the "diamonds" only to find out they were fakes, I thought, "This poor child has been abandoned again." Her sister died trying to protect her and now she was alone and destitute. You see where my feeling of sadness came from this week. On a lighter note, I am stunned that Allison has a different set of pajamas every night. I can wear the same T-shirt to bed for a week and not blink twice, but not Allison. She evidently doesn't mind doing 40 tons of laundry a week. The show has new episodes through the remainder of the season, so see you back here next week! show less
