I struggled to get through all 15 episodes of the original version of Season 4, opting to skip about 6 of them. With the Season 4 Version 2.0 with a new chronological edit, I decided to focus my attention there.
I know, that’s heresy. Ron’s narration has been a key comedic highlight of the show. I wish Ron could narrate everything.
Jesus: Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.
Ron as Narrator: Simon Peter was thinking, “Blessed are the disciples who are really hungry and could use a break for lunch”.
Ron as Narrator: Then Tom thought about it a bit and….
Thomas Jefferson: All men are created equal.
Ron as Narrator: Then Tom thought making it “all land owning white men” but decided that might be pushing things too far.
I think I need to let Season 4 breathe a bit and try again later. Maybe I tried to watch the re-edited version too soon after watching the first version of season 4.
Ron as Narrator: Dave-El was lying. He only watched part of the first version of season 4.
Comer as Villanelle is a fantastic villain. At the drop of a hat, she will shoot you or stab you or back over with a van (repeatedly). Or she will (menacingly) have left over shepherd's pie with you for dinner in your kitchen. You never know.
Sandra Oh as Eve is a unique take on a protagonist for this type of show. She's no Sidney Barstow from Alias; unglamorous and unsure of herself, Eve is personally tentative but professionally tenacious. There are bad people doing bad things and she's determined to bring them to justice.
BROOKLYN NINE NINE
Son of a bitch! Fox cancelled Brooklyn Nine Nine after five seasons?!?!
My daughter Randie and I recently discovered this show. We started DVRing the reruns on TBS around the latter part of season 3 and gotten through to the end of season 4.
Jake and Rosa are going to jail?!?!
Ironically (or something like "ironically"), the TBS reruns had come 'round back to season one on our DVR. On Thursday, the day Fox cancelled Brooklyn Nine Nine after five seasons.....
OK, Dave-El, enough of that!
So Randie and I watched the beginning, the pilot episode of Brooklyn Nine Nine which we had never seen before. Which is kind of weird. Everything was familiar but different. The characters were recognizable but the actors haven't settled into their comfortable rhythms yet. It was so strange watching the cast at the beginning of their journey, particularly on the same day that we heard that journey was coming to an end.
Dave-El! Stop it!
