Frequently, after watching a TYR episode, i feel compelled to write my comment on it. Because that a while, I\"ve been posting said comments in ~ the Writers\" Ranch blog post board, however I\"ve made decision to save on computer them here as well. (Why not let them execute double-duty as contents for my own website, right? ;)


3.11 an excellent Night, Sweet Charlotte

I simply watched this illustration again. Ns think Lou\"s conversation with the guy at the end was significant: he declared that he loved Charlotte for who she was, no for whereby she came from. Hearing it grammar that way, it seemed that Lou was able to differentiate in between herself as a person and what circumstances had actually happened to her. And realizing that allowed her to share the happening v Kid.

Hmm, i didn\"t even think of the parallel between Lou\"s previous here and the case with Kid and also Dorothea. D\"oh, this is what happens when you watch the eps method out of order...

Oh, but I agree with the agreement that it\"s *awesome* how Lou conserves herself. At very first it appears she\"s completely lost control, offered into rage and also is around to killing Wicks. However, she simply messes with him, and then giggles about it. He had taunted her around still gift a scared child, however her actions there proved just how much she had matured. And Wicks have to be thankful for it, since without it, she wouldn\"t have held back.

I likewise really liked the Charlotte character. She\"s reality - she has actually no illusions about what she\"s to be - however she\"s optimistic and determined come rise over it.

I am no sure how Rachel knew Charlotte was a prostitute from first glance.....

I think perhaps it to be \"the look\" Lou offered Charlotte, the one Charlotte stated she had seen typically on the encounters of the townspeople once they experienced her. I have actually a emotion Rachel had been given that look herself in times past...


3.12 track of Isiah

Just watched this ep. The made me wonder even if it is there\"s a TYR drink game everywhere online...? number of things right here would surely it is in on it:A Young Rider\"s previous plays into the existing plot. 1 sipSomeone mentions the upcoming war. 1 sipA bad guy has someone whipped. 1 sipCharacter or personalities resort to vigilante justice. 1 sipJimmy says, \"Don\"t do this.\" 1 sipThe human being he\"s talk to in reality listens and doesn\"t \"do this.\" 2 sipsJimmy attracts yet an additional freaky female. 5 sips (or as many as you need to drive she from storage rolleyes.gif )


Kid: Oh, good, friend haven\"t left yet.Hickok: Actually, I\"ve been gone an hour. :D

Hickok (about his father): He to be a great man.Isiah Burke: He passed away for the noblest reason of all: the brotherhood and dignity of all men.Hickok: The way I remember it, he was stabbed through a drunken slaver.

Hickok: as soon as I was cultivation up \"the cause\" was every I ever before heard about. And, of course, the other side had their \"cause,\" too. I\"ve seen some quite strange points from both sides. Lately, ns can\"t assist wondering how much any cause is worth.


3.14 Shadowmen

I experienced that James Brolin had actually directed. I could just snapshot a typical day during filming...

JAMES BROLIN: \"Josh, you\"re law great. Point out on! The remainder of girlfriend guys, though... Terrible! Horrible! You speak to this acting?! WHY can\"t girlfriend be an ext like JOSH?!...\" :D

Seriously though, the ep had some an excellent moments.

Yet again, we check out Jimmy staring transfixed/fascinated at who who has actually just been killed. Because that someone so professional at killing, it\"s great to present that he does recognize exactly how serious a thing it is because that a life to be taken.

I chosen the significance of teaspoon saying just how \"taking things too personal\" clouds her judgment... Yet he\"s unaware that his very own judgment has been clouded by the doing simply that.

Hickok look at so(!) hot(!) closing the door in that hotel room to face Teaspoon\"s lady friend. (Note come self: screencap the shot... Wub.gif )

...and what to be that point Jimmy was waving in former of her when he confronted her? What to be it that was almost everywhere that male was?

maureen, come answer both questions, it to be a small piece of fabric that was rather mesh-like. Jimmy pieced with each other that it was from that woman\"s shawl. In retrospect, we can see that, together the illustration progresses, they present increasingly closer shots of her wearing the shawl, trying to provide viewers the clue. Still, it\"s quite subtle.

Great last shot the the wilted increased signifying the finish of a promising relationship.


3.15 Mask of Fear

RE: Jesse being close come his boss, i think this ep is wherein that happened. Jesse had actually been so late (repeatedly, we learn from the boss), and also the boss points out how he gave Jesse a chance by letting him job-related there - despite human being tellin\" the boss he to be crazy to carry out so. Ns think, hearing that, Jesse suddenly felt closer come the guy. For him to lose the boss ideal after the seem an especially tragic. Sad.gif

I believed the location of the ep to be pretty clever, since it had actually multiple applications. The townspeople to be hiding behind a \"mask that fear\" and couldn\"t see previous it to give the convicted murderer an additional chance. The title additionally refers come the abused wife, both come the bruises on her face and the method she maintained the abuse concealed out that fear.


Rachel: We\"re learnin\" addition here, not poker.Jesse: appears to me the two space related.

Rachel: the did his time, Jimmy. Possibly he counted on civilization giving the a second chance. Unless he walk something wrong, that\"s exactly what every one of us fan him.

Teaspoon: Where\"s the fire, son?Jesse: In my pants if ns don\"t get to occupational on time!

I didn\"t transcribe it, yet I likewise loved Jimmy\"s story come Jesse around another time once townspeople spread their very own justice only to learn that the accused to be innocent. What a good example of the peril in jumping to conclusions.


3.19 lessons Learned

Random thoughts:

* i felt so negative for Teaspoon and also his dilemma: learning that Randall is scum but not wanting to break the regulation (and reduced himself to Randall\"s level) to avoid him.

* Obviously, Teaspoon do the ideal choice. Look at what taken place when Albert and also Marty tried come beat Randall at his very own game.

* Isn\"t Albert and Marty\"s mommy the exact same actress who plays the murdered miner\"s wife in \"Daddy\"s Girl\"?

* Polly certain did bounce ago from being attacked. She seemed much more upset about her dad. Which kinda makes sense, actually. I mean, once your heart has been damaged that badly, for a while, also other poor things it seems ~ small.

* Fave scene: teaspoon is mourning Polly\"s father. \"They don\"t make \"em prefer that any more.\" feather proudly in ~ Teaspoon, Jimmy replies confidently, \"Yeah, they do.\"

* Lou and Kid asking Jimmy to give Lou away. (I\"m surprised the Jimmy-Lou shippers aren\"t everywhere this...)

** for those who think there\"s a thing between Jimmy and also Lou, this might be viewed as extremely symbolic, as if she\"s favored Kid, and now Jimmy needs to - really publicly and finally - give her increase (away).

** provided how jealous Kid had actually been the Jimmy, it shows growth on his part that he have the right to now expropriate Jimmy in the way. (Or, probably he feels the it sends Jimmy a message. Check out previous point.)


Personally, ns liked exactly how Jimmy asked exactly what providing away the bride affiliated before that agreed. I\"d think he\"d have been to enough weddings come know, yet obviously the wasn\"t payment attention.

D\"oh! ns didn\"t also make the connection, that Jimmy wanting come know specifically what he had actually to do. Ns agree the *surely* he\"s been to weddings before...? But, I likewise think it\"s a inquiry that fits in v what we\"ve seen of Jimmy, offered the means he takes his responsibilities seriously. (I simply watched the illustration after this one, and that properties of his comes into play, yet we\"ve viewed it in previous eps, too.)

Polly smiled after ~ Teaspoon\"s fight with Randall went v her window. The made me think of how she said he was wild when she first met him and made me think she was thinking of that.

Double D\"oh, ns didn\"t record that smile either! but I agree, she certain was thinking of Teaspoon\"s wild means - and how much she likes \"em. Wink.gif
