This was another semi-funny one. There was a guest appearance from Andy Milder (you would remember him as Dean Hodes, Celia’s husband from Weeds) as an instructor teaching the surgeons some new techniques to help them operate more efficiently. The doctors are all worried about who’s going to get fired, and when Meredith gets the hang of it right away, it riles Bailey’s competitive mode, so much so, she quotes the Hunger Games!
Bailey: May the odds be ever in your favor.
Webber butts against the technique, offering up his own technique instead, and gets the guy to admit that he doesn’t think the patients matter.
Alana has to help Hunt with a trauma patient when she literally gets caught in the middle of it. Derek and April have been working on a plan to cut the hospital’s budget to save the ER, but it’s only after Hunt’s surgery that they realize part of the reason the ER has to go is because the hospital is being prepared for sale, not just for efficiency.
Meredith has a moment of panic, thinking there’s something wrong with the pregnancy, but in fact, it’s just the baby kicking. The promos way overplayed this–no way there’s something wrong this early on. It’s nice to see Meredith enjoying her pregnancy. I’m sure that won’t be the case once she gets close to eight or nine months, but it’s nice to see her becoming a little motherly.
After having Ellis for a mother, her instinct to be tender and motherly was dulled a bit. It’s taken her and Derek a long time to nurture it and bring it back, and it’s been well worth the time.
Do No Harm
This was the new NBC Thursday drama to premiere this week. It was actually more entertaining than I thought it would be. Steven Pasquale plays Jason Cole, a neurosurgeon with a personality disorder. (Not sure which disorder it is, so I’ll leave that to you to track down if you care to.)
Basically, it’s a Jekyll/Hyde storyline with Jason on the one side and his alter-ego, Ian, on the other. Jason is somewhat shy, sweet, and level-headed. He’s managed to come up with a drug, with some help, to keep Ian internalized when they seemingly switch perspectives every 12 hours.
The premiere begins with Ian having developed a resistance to the drug, leaving Jason helpless to stop his takeover. The memories of the other personality’s deeds and experiences are mostly gone, but come back fuzzy, like amnesia, but it’s clear that Ian wreaks havoc wherever he goes. The premise is that while Jason and his friend develop a new drug to put Ian out of commission, Jason agrees to give Ian his life back.
Jason: See if Dr. Freedman has an opening. I should probably get a vasectomy.
It looks like a fun show. Not the best thing out there, and an interesting competitor for the timeslot, going up against ABC’s Scandal and CBS’s Elementary. They’re all dramas, but one’s political/romantic, one’s a crime/suspense show, and one’s more of a general drama–he’s a surgeon, but the focus isn’t on the medicine, so I wouldn’t really call it a medical drama.
It’ll be interesting to see if this one makes it off the ground–it has the potential if they can keep up the hijinx. In any case, it’s fun to see Steven Pasquale on TV again–I miss having him around after Rescue Me ended.
This one was fun because we get a little more insight into Rachel’s backstory. Her father is Robert Zane, a prominent attorney, and presumably the reason for her aspiration to be a lawyer. However, he has never given her much commendation for any of her successes, and especially thinks being a paralegal isn’t worth her time.
Pearson-Hardman takes a case with Zane as opposing counsel, and Harvey decides to use Rachel as leverage against him, with her willing participation.
Meanwhile, Louis and Katrina go to war. She holds up pretty well, but Louis does do a pretty entertaining job of getting her goat.
Elementary “The Red Team”
Sherlock is on suspension after going after “M”, but it doesn’t stop him from investigating a case anyway. He gets involved in a conspiracy theorist’s murder case and discovers that the man knew about a government project called “The Red Team”.
Things are still up in the air with Watson as to whether she’ll continue with Sherlock or not, though her term with him is officially over by a week. While being a sober companion is a noble profession, I agree with her mother that she’s found her calling working with Sherlock.
Watson is being evicted from her apartment (which she doesn’t spend that much time in, being that she lives with her sober companions) because her subletter filmed a pornographic film there.
Holmes [Referring to a scene in the porno film]: If you haven’t already, I strongly recommend you find yourself a new spatula.
Holmes is investigating a serial murder case, but the main story centers around Holmes and an ex, Catherine, who predicted his addiction problems and who Holmes desperately wants to prove wrong.
Watson discovers that her landlord was actually watching the film being made, so she blackmails him into paying for storage for her things until she finds a new place.
By the way, this happened: Don’t Trust the B—- got canceled this week. Sad to see it go, but it was falling off a bit in terms of storyline. The comedy was still there, but the relationship aspect wasn’t holding up. Apparently, there are still 8 unaired episodes out there. I think ABC should have aired them and then announced the cancellation, but I’m not a network exec, so what do I know?
We have new episodes of all the regulars this week, except for Go On and The New Normal, which are on break until the 19th. Also, we have the two-hour premiere of Smash on Tuesday! Since I already recapped the first hour that was debuted a couple weeks ago, I’ll only cover the second hour, but if you missed the first hour of the new season, check your local listings to tune in!
