Someone speculated that Percy murders Madeline in "Wrath" to torture Sean/drive him off the rails, since the promo shows a car exploding near Sean (whose face is smudged with dirt). This would also fit in with the synopsis, which stated that Percy plays sadistic games with Michael, Alex and Sean. Do we know if Alberta Watson is in this episode?
But so much of the fighting between Alex and Jaden just came off as lame when the recruits were supposed to be former criminals who had been taken from places like death row, yet they came off more like rebellious kids in-fighting at a boarding school or something. And Thom made no sense to me how he even ended up there because he did did come across as hardened or ruthless at all, even though the premise of the show would suggest that they were supposed to have already been killers before they joined Division and that's why they were picked?
I agree. You'd have expected the Division setting to be much darker, considering that those kids were criminals and (maybe not all, but at least most) even killers. I hated the Alex/Jaden stuff in those early episodes, and while I liked Thom and him/Alex, I too felt like he was way too soft and sensitive to be a Division recruit. It was especially ridiculous that he'd supposedly been there for a YEAR already, because if that's how succesful Division is at molding people into cold-blooded assassins... epic fail.
I also felt like it was a missed opportunity to only show the physical training the recruits underwent, and not the mental/psychological process. I'd imagine that to create efficient, ruthless assassins, you have to teach them to be emotionally detached and essentially become killing machines, with no moral compass. A lot of people felt Division was lame and unscary in the early episodes - this could have prevented that somewhat.
That's because you don't know [MQ] in real life. There's not much that she won't do!
Heh. I know she's not shy about her body, since she did PETA ads in the nude, but the point to me isn't simply that she wore a revealing outfit in the Nikita
promos. It's that *using* such gratituous images to promote the show in the first place is a very poor strategy, making an incredibly intelligent, exciting action/suspense drama look like cheesy soft porn with guns. I know actors don't have that much control over things like promo photoshoots, but isn't MQ a producer? She brought in her own stunt coordinator and stuff like that. Since I believe she'd want the show to be marketed as the mature, high quality entertainment that it is, I'm surprised she went along with this line of promotion.
another article stating nikita will more probably be cancelled :(
What annoys me is that the title of article says at least 2 of the 3 shows will be cancelled, thus making it seem like all three have equal chances. In truth, Ringer
is essentially dead; it was getting worse ratings than Nikita
ON A WEEKDAY, and most tellingly - the CW decided to burn off all episodes before May sweeps. So it's more accurate to say that Ringer
is already a goner (unless a true miracle happens), and at least one of Nikita
and HoD will likely be cancelled as well. 90210, GG and TSC aren't 100% safe, but their odds are considerably better.
The only two shows guaranteed renewal are SPN and TVD. Although, I'd love it if SPN's PTB clued in to the worthless piece of crap their show has become during the past two years, and end it now rather than continue to ruin all the good things they built in the first 4 seasons... that would leave another open spot on the CW's schedule. But I know the odds are slim.
