Nope! It was the kid with the gun on the soccer field, loser! Ok, that was probably in poor taste but I’m just not sure where to start this week. I mean this damn episode actually made me FEEL things and they weren’t just ‘bored out of mind’ feelings either. The story got to me and I felt bad for the kid who shot his beloved soccer coach and teacher. Or maybe it was the soccer coach’s death that triggered the feelings as I might still have some residual depression from the US Women losing the motherfucking World Cup to Japan. Or maybe it was because I totally got how Jeff was feeling about entering high school. High school is the worst and sucks for everyone, as Hollywood has shown over and over again with classic films like ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’ and ‘Never Been Kissed’. Whatever it was, The Glades Jedi-mind tricked me into caring this week about what the fuck was going on in their crime laden part of Florida. Honestly though, haven’t y’all wondered just how high the crime rate is there? It has to be high, right? RIGHT?!
Things I liked this week-Ed Vickers. Sure, he turned out to be the evil bad guy selling guns from evidence on the black market, but his undercover role at the flea market made me laugh. Secondly, I really liked the fact that Brother James is learning to hold off on arresting folks until he has solid evidence. Way to step up the police work, Jimbo. Finally, and probably my favorite thing of the episode, the X-Station! If you don’t know what it is, the X-Station is a hybrid of X-Box and Playstation. Features included online game playing against other real life players, Blu-Ray player, and Kinetic. It really is the best of both worlds (and totally fake). This has me actually questioning why no one was tried to combine these two game consoles in real life. Actually, I’m patenting this idea pronto and calling it Play-Box™ because old-school throwback names are the way to go. Just ask the hipsters. Oh wait, they’re over it already. Nevermind.
Things I disliked this week-The writers trying to convince me that guns in the South are bought anywhere but Wal-Mart or Bass Pro Shop. Come on guys, get real. Also the writers made Callie look like a complete moron. I’m pretty sure that a nurse AND med student would have been able to tell that the coach had been shot pointblank in the heart and would have saved themselves from getting cooties from CPR efforts. Cooties, ewwwww!
Jim and Callie Loveshack Meter (1 to 10)-6. They had their cute little moments this week, like when Brother James was making sure Callie was ok upon arriving on the crime scene at the school. Callie isn’t quite ready to let him back in but the ending showed promise. Just maybe these two silly kids can work things out. For y’alls sake I certainly hope so.
Well that’s it for me this week. I know it’s a short post, but as I said at the beginning, I didn’t really know how to tackle this episode. What did y’all like this week? Did you enjoy the episode? Were feelings evoked that you weren’t expecting? Would you purchase one of my Play-Boxes™? Do yo thang in the comments below!
