May 9, 2007: "Heads Will Roll" Season 3, Episode 20

Thanks for cutting me some slack getting the Medium blog up. Now without further ado I give you: One of the best openings I've seen on this show. One of the best shows this season; I still have goosebumps. One creepily believable performance from Neve Campbell as sneaky, underhanded reporter, PD MacColl. Other great titles for this show would have been, "Life Needs Your Attention" or "Stop the Murderer, Stop the Murder". Where have I heard something like that before? Any Heroes fans out there "Save the Cheerleader, Save the World" ring any bells? So, this being May sweeps, the folks over at Medium, really tried to pack a lot in. There was more humor than normal, a film noir short and Howie Mandel himself. Plus by putting Phoenix's great DA, Manuel Devalos on the auction block, we've got the perfect setting for a real cliffhanger with next week's show. To start Joe's meeting with his father was hysterical. The entire conversation was brilliantly written and the best line was "You've got a happy marriage to Haley Joel Osment." And then when his dad started talking with Allison's voice, I lost it. A morning where the girls aren't fighting how refreshing! Ariel was actually helping Bridgette with spelling, or was she? She asked Bridgette to spell, "jocular," not an easy word for me, much less a fourth grader. The serial killer is being called "The Recapitator" by PD/Debra and by virtue of her article slandering Manny, everyone else. It sounds as gross as the images look. Allison and Joe had a couple of heart to hearts without processing their feelings to death. When Allison replied to Joe that she was smiling because he was finally, "Talking to me. I miss that," I almost cried. Their relationship is heartfelt. If the producers decided to put out relationship self-help book entitled, "Joe and Allison, One Couple's Journey to Marital Bliss," they would be smiling all the way to bank. Joe's been given some juicy storylines of late, and I hope this was a concerted effort by the folks at Medium central to keep him interested and keep him on the show. I can't imagine Medium without him, even if he never shows us those blue boxers again. The film noir take on the new DA's little pep talk to the detectives was fantastic! It conjured images of those old films. Scanlon looks even better in black and white and blue. Another great line, "When did Howie Mandel become our babysitter?" preceded another great moment in the show, Allison being a contestant on his show, Deal or No Deal. It also foretold the nasty conversation she would have later with the DA when she finds out she has been completely betrayed by that nasty reporter. I knew when Allison was telling PD/Debra who she is, she was making a big mistake. I was literally yelling at the TV for her to stop. . I don't ever think I've seen Neve play mean before she's always the nice girl. That ability to play such a heartless, ruthless, conniving person is testament to her great talent. What an exciting show this was. I have to say, this whole season has been rather top-notch. I am jumping at the bit to find out what's in store for the season finale next week (can you believe this season is over?) Any theories of what will happen? Personally, I think PD/Debra might have a few secrets up her sleeves. Be good. See you next time.
