Still watching Elementary. Spousal unit loves it, but I am still trying to see if I will start liking it. The characters are just...maybe missing something? I was pretty excited to have Lucy Liu be Watson, but did they have to make her such an empty failure?? She never served as a military doctor, in fact she isn't a doctor at all, because oh noes! she has EMOTIONAL ISSUES! And as far as I can tell, she's not very good with her fists or a gun? And she has no interests, no hobbies, no direction in life...even worse, she has taken a job as a CARETAKER, as if she was a teacher or a nurse or a nanny...like, they couldn't even had let her remain a doctor?? And their Holmes is just, kind of a moron? :(:(:(

I am seriously considering giving up on Revenge. It is becoming a soap opera and I have never watched any of those tangled messes of highly convoluted bullshit and I am not about to start. This sucks, because I love Emily and Nolan (but not like that). But the beauty of Count of Monte Christo was in clarity and simplicity. A group of people had wrong the hero in the past. Some of them conspired, some were just heartless, but *their* actions are in the past. Now they are happily and contentedly living their lives, having forgotten about the person they've wronged. Enter our hero, with one plan. One by one, he doles out justice. As he finishes with each person, his reasons and his actions become crystal clear, and he moves on to the next. The people he finished do not come back. Revenge S1 seemed to be following the right path for a while, but I guess that's not a recipe for a multi-season television series? I am not sure what to do with the mess Revenge S2 has quickly devolved into..
