There’s something inherently funny about Rumpy vs. The TSA. Rumpy, the guy who is the root cause of all that has been amiss with Storybrooke and Fairy Tale Land, the guy who everyone is afraid of…. still has to take off his shoes at the airport.
Rick Grimes is a racist buttbrain, everyone is Woodbury is an idiot, and I’m so bored that stop paying attention and start thinking about The West Wing.
You know what, my back side hurts so bad I have to use one of those donut things. Wanna know why? Because Arrow was so awesome last week it kicked my butt. That’s right, I am not joking (well, I am about the donut).
It’s nice to know that some things never change…and that some things do, like television writers. Otherwise this week’s episode would have been another bust, but thankfully, we had our good ole show back.
This is one of those moments where you realize that our popular culture has finally gone over the cliff on the sex vs. violence debate. We can have heroes who kill, but people who have sex and like it? They are Satan and must be destroyed, the better to make the non-sexy couples look like saints.
I wonder if “Matter of Time” was the episode where the writing team had to defer to some executive’s husband’s nephew, who was only let in the door so the executive could get her husband to shut the hell up for five minutes. I’ll call this nephew “Carl”.
I hope this “key to everything” that Abbadon wanted so badly turns out to be the key to a great season 9 plot and not just a reason to watch Jared and Jensen.
I must say, this week’s Arrow really fit with the title of the episode as the camera action through much of it, especially the beginning, produces a lot of vertigo. It kind of gave me a headache and reminded me how I felt while coming off my anxiety meds.
Time and logic are running a little bit fast and loose in this episode. We pick up from the last episode on the morning after Nora and Liam spent the night getting to know their better halves together.
