What a fantastic start to
Medium tonight. I loved the silent movie portraying the sad ills of the Dubois ladies with barely a morsel of food to share between the four of them. But where was Joe in all of that? In a short video on the NBC website, Maria Lark said it was fun to do, but she wasn't terribly fond of the scratchy clothes.
A man was accused of killing his wife and Allison was asked to join the defense team headed by her favorite defense attorney, Larry Watt played by the fantastic Conor O'Farrell. He handed Allison a check saying, "Think it over, but think fast. Bank opens at 8; jury selection at 9" A big paycheck makes working for the enemy very palatable, while a dream telling of the defendant's guilt made it hard to enjoy.
Ariel is either stealing or I don't know what. OK, it's I don't know what, because she was taking the 5-finger discount, she was giving "readings". When Joe told this to Allison, I thought he meant Ariel was reading poetry in a speakeasy. I'm dating myself, aren't I? Well, I wasn't around for speakeasies, but it took me a second to realize he didn't mean that, nor did he mean palm readings or tealeaf readings, for that matter. It's actually a pretty ingenious idea and if Allison were more like Lynn Spears, she just might pimp her daughter out as the next Kreskin.
Could swear I heard Jake Weber's British accent, if only for a moment or two or threeYou know my love for Joe is deep, but with British, Aussie and Kiwi actors being cast in all the top roles on American TV, (
Journeyman, Life, Sarah Connor, Moonlight, Eli Stone, the list goes on and on), I fear we may all be speaking with foreign accents sooner rather than later.
The line of the night was spoken so eloquently by the handsome and underused Joe: "You've got this seven-course meal of a moral quandary and I've got this fast food burger of a problem."
Allison really did have a dilemma, a moral conundrum, if you will. But Watt had a point, take the money and take care of your family, which is exactly what the defendant was doing. Money is a soiled thing anyhow; it so rarely comes to us from altruistic means. A dollar won in the dark side is just as green as one from the light. I think Darth Vader said that.
Surprisingly, Edgemont did not kill his wife, his mentally, (and fashion) challenged daughter, Chloe did; he and his other daughter, Myra, conspired to make Stacy's death look like an accident. Or so we thought. What we didn't know is that Myra actually killed Stacy herself, as well as beating to death a nurse she didn't like either. It might only be a matter of time before she kills her sister. And I guess having her dad sent to jail and possibly to a death sentence worked out nicely for her as well. Talk about pure evil. Though her red hair was really beautiful.
However, Allison had her number. As Myra walked out of the courtroom, Allison warned her, "I'm watching you." Is this a possible cliffhanger? Are we to assume this storyline might be revisited? Because I would surely like to see Myra get what's coming to her. And I hope what's coming to her involves a cast iron fairy.
Another new episode coming next week. It's like Christmas in February, or March as it will be But you should start stocking up on Medium clips in our
Online Video Guide because I don't think we're getting many more episode than that.
