"Fault", a pre-review  
I know it seems odd to do a pre-review when I haven't posted the review for "Venom" yet, but please don't give up on me yet. I plan to have a review for "Venom" and I plan to post it before I post the review for "Fault". I do.

However, this past week I just...couldn't. I couldn't get it together enough to write even a review. I'm sorry. But I'm doing better now and I think I can get both done. Especially since it doesn't appear that we will be having a new episode next week.

Of course. /rolling eyes

Okay...so without further ado...the pre-review.

That... ::blink blink:: That was...it? All this build up, all this "America won't know what hit it" and she gets some steri-strips and a green lollipop and it's all "Chuck, chuck. Back to work!" ??


Oh, and Elliot? Grow. The. Fuck. Up.

If I never hear you whine again about always having to rescue Olivia, it will be too soon. Either be a man and eat your fucking gun already or slink off to neverneverland in the silky, sensuous clutches of Our Lady Valium, but leave the rest of us the fuck alone, okay?

Jesus, does that man need some serious talk therapy or what? O_o

So, once again, I apologize for not having the review for "Venom" done but I will have it done and the review for "Fault" done soon.

I have learned my lesson, though, and will not be promising a specific time. That seems to backfire on me quite a bit.

And Elliot gets on mine, so I'm alway ready to push him off a bridge. LOL

I didn't actually hate the episode so much as I hated all that unnecessary personal relationship crap between Elliot and Olivia. When do you think they're going to go back and focus on the actual cases, that's what I want to know...

Oh lookit, I'm not alone.

My theory is that they couldn't find a way to fill the time. way-too-long scene where Liv tries to talk down the sick SOB (which anyone with half a brain cell could tell you isn't going to work)? Check. Oh, wait. Still short. Ooh, let's let Elliot bitch some more. Yay, everyone's happy. Except us.

*sigh* It had decent time for most of the characters though. Nice to see Huang and Warner for a change.

But ::weep!::, no Casey! Why is it when one woman gets her throat slashed or a gun held to her head, the other woman is nowhere to be found?? How are we supposed to mine subtext from complete and utter absence?

One could argue that at least the end of the episode didn't find Liv in the arms of Random!guy#___ (I've not been counting so much as pretending it doesn't happen)...

Which at least makes for decent pretend subtext... or we can just be angry at the people responsible for the Lack of Casey.

I suppose both are good. :D

Who is that in your icon?? I feel I must know who it is but I cannot place her.

Well, for starters that's like, half her face, with a somewhat unusual expression. I only recognized her through the quote. ^_^

Yeah, but wasn't that episode already done? ;)

Yes, that ep needed some lime. Desperately.

i don't care if it was broiled to a crisp... shoot the farkwad in the shoulder then... or steal a page from "speed" and shoot elliot in the leg LOL

Oh glad to see I'm not the only one who wants to kick Elliot's ass. What was with the interrogation and him interrupting her every five-fucking-seconds!? However when Olivia was talking psycho man down (see I can't even remember his name), I actually found myself moved by Mariska's acting. Call me crazy but it almost made me cry. Almost. Thought she was going to take the shot and that would be the "big thing" that they were talking about. Guess not. That whole scene reminded me of your fan fiction from the ep. RAW. Except they switched Elliot with Casey...and there was no sex. Geez we didn't even get something remotely steamy, or an injured Elliot...crap. Can you tell I'm upset with this episode?

Wow. I hadn't thought of that! It was very much like my scene. LOL And now we know. If Casey's in danger, Liv will take the shot. If Elliot's in danger, she won't. LOL

Yeah, it was pretty sucky. All that unnecessary personal crap between Elliot and Olivia really clogged up what could have been a solid, case-driven ep.

p.s. Warner is the people's hero. I almost shouted 'Amen! Hallelujah!' when she commented about Elliot's brooding.

I've got to say, I agree with that. That was arguably my favorite line in the entire episode. It's about time one of the characters said that.

elliot has pretty much annoyed me for the past 4 maybe even 5 years now. Dont ask me what he has done, cuz I dont think it is one thing. He just really pisses me off more often than not these days.

I'm sure this episode would of been MUCH better if the whole 'whinning' was kept to a minimum. Unfortunately, anytime elliot does even a little bit of bitchin', I tend to project him doing it for the whole dang episode. (though I'm not sure I'm wrong about that in this episode)

I'll probably have to watch it again, but the ending seemed a bit 'stupid'. Well not just a 'bit' stupid, it was actually a whole lot stupid! IMO.

elliot is lucky it wasnt me who had to choose to 'take the shot' or not. Cuz like he'd totally be under Warner's knife.

I tend to think the whole "I want a new partner." comment, is cuz Olivia is really tired of all the bitching elliot does on a daily basis. "My wife left me." "My dog died." "Whaaaaaa, boooooo hooooo." GOD I WANT TO SHOOT HIM!!!

Ok none of this probably made any sense, but oh well.
