I got to talk to one of my internet buddies for the first time today on the phone. :) Wish these things didn't always come about because of loss of job or illness, but it was still a pleasure to speak to her.
Saw House of Sand and Fog this afternoon. Very good film with outstanding performances by Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly. But, one Hell of a downer. If you want to see this movie, be in a good frame of mind before entering the theater.
I'm not sure how I feel about this episode. Underwhelmed maybe. I'm glad they didn't dwell too much on S/V (and I say this as a shipper) and managed to involve the entire cast. I'm somewhat pissed at Vaughn though. He confesses to Syd she's the only one yet dashes off to Lauren the moment he spots her. So, Jack was right. He may not mean to do it, but he is killing Syd emotionally.
When the Hell did Syd and Vaughn learn to fly a jet?! And land it without power?! Even for Alias, that's stretching credability.
Yay! to Dixon blowing off orders and showing some emotion for a change.
Yay! to Jack kicking some ass again.
I'm glad thet have found a way to incorporate Irina into the plot without the benefit of her presence. I'm intrigued now as to what she is up to and how Sloane fits into it all. I suppose it's a good excuse as to why she is in hiding, if the government and Sloane are both after her.
Isabella is no Lena, but she had her moments. I especially enjoyed her threatening to fry the guys face. :) And the kiss! I didn't see that coming. At least not yet. Again, I'm intrigued.
How cute was it to hear David Anders speak in his own voice tonight? And on top of it they made him from the Portland office. :) I really liked the entire scene. I miss Sark/Syd/Vaughn sitting around a table threatening each other. Plus, we now know what really scares Sark - threatening the family jewels. :)
JJ mentioned in a recent interview that Sark's storyline was going to start kicking into gear right about now. I'm sensing Sark may be getting ready to make a bold move. He didn't seem the least bit afraid to let the Covenant know what he really thought of them. Wonder if he is going to try to take them down himself? What if he and the CIA work together to do it?!
It doesn't seem like it was him who gave Lauren the order to shoot Lazeray last week. I'm also thinking Lazeray isn't dead. Not a huge leap to make when no one ever seems to die on this show.
Marshall hugging Syd and Vaughn upon their return was adorable.
Did I miss anything? Probably. Like I said, I got a headache. Therefore, I'll wait till tomorrow to catch up on the bitching and complaining. :p
