May 10th's Weekly TV Thoughts

Hi and welcome to my weekly TV Thoughts.  After some encouragement last week, I am thinking of turning this into a weekly Meme.  I will probably start it officially as such when shows come back for the fall, but in the mean time, if you want to leave a link to your own post on your blog in the comments or just leave some thoughts in the comments, please feel free to do so.

And remember, spoilers start immediately.

The Amazing Race - NO!  Not the Cowboys!!  Although, really, they did themselves in with just a bad day.  Even if there had been no U-Turn, they still would have lost.  Now if the Afganimals had kept their word, the Cowboys might have had a fighting chance, but I can't argue with their logic.  It will be interesting to see how that choice plays out over the last two legs, however.

Once Upon a Time - I'm still trying to figure out that last scene.  Did Mr. Gold, by trying to get his revenge, undo the happy ending they'd gotten?  It was a great fight between Regina and Zelena, and I just love how they have redeemed Regina's character.  You can read my full recap here.

Dancing with the Stars - I'm amazed that Candice is still in it, and she seems to be in the middle of the pack still, too.  I'd heard comments about the guest judge before I watched it, so I was looking for her to be harsh.  She was certainly nitpicky, but I didn't think she was as awful as people were making her out to be.  She certainly wasn't mean.

24: Live Another Day - Jack Bauer is back!!!!  Yes, I actually cheered when we got to the beginning and heard "Events occur in real time."  Despite all the talk about how they've "shaken things up," it still felt like the familiar 24 to me.  Not that I'm complaining.  This event is going to be too short as it is.

Castle - I do hope they've now finished with the story line of Beckett's mother's murder.  That was a satisfying ending, although it did use the clue the main character has had without knowing it cliché to get here.  I could see them doing more with it, but I hope not.  It was satisfying and fun.  You can read my full recap here.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - I did not see that twist with Garret coming at all.  Multiple cliffhangers and we have to wait until next week to see how they get out of those messes!  You can read my full recap here.

Melissa and Joey - A proposal?  And a wedding in a month?  Yes, I realize the characters have known each other for a while, but this seems very fast.  I'm surprised they went there, although less so than the baby last week.  Still, that final scene was so sweet.

Survivor - A word to the producers - we can see through you.  You spend the entire episode trying to make it look like the alliance is breaking up, and then they all come back together when it actually comes time to vote.  I fell for it the first few seasons, but it's just not going to work on my any more.

Arrow - Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it does.  How are they going to put down all the soldiers before dawn?  I'm assuming the cure actually does work, but the season finale next week will be very explosive.

The Big Bang Theory - My second proposal of the week.  This one, too, started out pretty funny but wound up being very sweet.  I've been rooting for Penny and Leonard (who hasn't if you watched the show), so I'm looking forward to seeing the next chapter in their lives.  Oh, and was it just me, or was the movie not as bad as it was made out to be?  Yes, the storyline is ludicrous, but I could see it being a very entertaining B movie.
