Thank you guys and gal for an enjoyable listen.

It was so nice to hear you again, Ed and Lori. It was very fun meeting you at Flashback and liked our conversations.

I do agree with you on most things discussed in this podcast.

I think Catherine had always been against the Millennium Group, so much secrecy. Even in Season 1, she always felt like the other woman when she was down in the basement.

Now in another Morgan and Wong episode, The Thin White Line, she said she believed in Frank's goodness. She doesn't like the idea of Frank killing someone. And Frank, he had a choice when he killed the Polaroid Man. He had the upper-hand there, but let the rage have the upper-hand and stabbed him many times, when he could have just stabbed him once.

She was about to leave, but Frank left instead so she could take care of Jordan. But I still think it's a bit unfair how long she was in this limbo, of trying to figure things out.

And with regards to Midnight of the Century, I was quite surprised how Frank was in this episode. We all know him to be not judgmental. And here he blocked out his father (and as well in The Beginning and the the End, when he couldn't think straight when Catherine had been kidnapped by the Polaroid Man), based on what he experienced when he was a kid. Too young to comprehend and too young to listen. And once you built that up for when you are a grown man, it's hard to argue with you about your stance about things.

And as I said in other comments, I teared up when Frank's father was telling about the pact him and his mother made and when they hugged.

I thought the scene was just a really good comedy scenes, where Frank is dealing with what to buy and get for Jordan, all those scenes, both in the toy store and other related scenes. Such a joy to watch.

And I figure Lara was just lonely, and yes, they share a connection, they can talk about their abilities and they understand each other that way. There's no need to put up a shield around Lara. I thought of them purely as friends, and you could tell they genuinely liked each others company.

It was a very satisfying episode. A great one.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year....or as we Icelanders say:
Gleðileg jól og farsælt komandi ár.

ps: There's a small delay of the next video, just while they truly finish Midnight of the Century well, but will be up ASAP. There will be a video for the last week of December as well and I'm working on something extra, something special. A celebration of sorts.

Cheers from Iceland!

good show, ladies! ;-)
always enjoy this kind of round table discussion. not only is it a fun reminiscing vicariously, but also hear different perspectives/ interpretations you might not have considered. a lot of good/ interesting points made by all.

I particularly enjoyed the part where Catherine's behavior was discussed. I actually see her as somewhat unique in television. Not that I have a ton of experience with many shows (I'm not a big TV watcher), but in my experience, characters are usually married or divorced, not separated. I often wonder if Frank and Catherine would have repaired their marriage if the Marburg thing hadn't happened. It's endlessly interesting to talk about because their marriage was so complex, unlike the shallowness of a lot of TV marriages.

Great podcast as always.
