    There is way too many newbies in this show. Midnight_tiptoes summed it up perfectly. I'm just praying that Peyton doesn't stay for more then her four eps.

    And this new Det. Angell...eh..Aiden wannabe, no? She looks and acts just like Aiden. What a rip off.

    But, don't get me wrong, I didn't think the episode was bad. I loved the Flack/Lindsay/Stella interaction. And I like how Mac is getting a social life.

    I gotta say that I loved this episode. Gave it an A. Danny was so freaking hot. Flack looked pretty damn fine too.

    I love the new detective. She and Danny worked well together. I'd like to see more of them together.

    Peyton's ok. Need to see more to decide on that one.

    Loved the Hawkes/Hammerback scene.

    Did you see the cute Flack smile when Lindsay questioned the phone numbers?

    I wanted to like this episode, but I just couldn't. I don't think I ever recovered from the shock of seeing Mac in bed with a strange woman. I mean, that just threw me off from the get go. And then they kept throwing new people into the mix. It was very disturbing. But, not as disturbing as whatever was going on with Stella's eyes. There was something weird about the eyes, but I haven't been able to put my finger on what it was. I spent the majority of the episode trying to figure it out.

    On an up note, Mac did look really good tonight. And Danny....oh my God, the hair. How hot was the new hair? And Flack was back! Yay for Flack, already back to work and hitting on the women. I love that man.

    I especially was happily surprised with the Angell character. She reminds me so much of Aiden... totally filling in a gaping whole. I love the chick with attitude, and Maka never really did it for me.

    The only thing missing was more Flack time, but loved the opening scene with him, Stella and Lindsey!

    Great Hawkes screen time/scenes.

    Danny = hot. I was worried about the new look, but I like that he's not all layered up. More eye candy. :devil:

    Peyton... ehhh.... I just don't like it... not at all. I don't particularly not like her, or even her as a character. But I don't like that she's taking scenes from Sid, and what about Pino? And the whole relationship thing is ridiculous. I wanted to barf on my tv. Talk about forced. It pained me. Luckily I forgot about it for the entire middle portion of the show, only to have it thrown back in my face at the end.

    Let's see, I think I'll give it an A+ (Of course, that's like my general grade for NY, but whatever :p). I'm the only A+ so far. :lol: Maybe I'm just being generous. ;)

    I didn't pay as close attention as I should have, because I was chatting during the episode, but I saw most of the stuff. ;) I'm going to re-watch it tomorrow, so I might have things to add then, but for now here are my thoughts.

    First, let's start with the good things :D :

    I'm glad they mentioned Flack's recovery quickly. The conversation with Stella and Lindsay was cute and showed that they're all comfortable with each other--a definite improvement over S2 where we weren't quite sure if Flack knew Lindsay was even around. :p And of course he got phone numbers--he probably wasn't wearing that wretched tie at the time. :lol: But Flack, baby, show us the scar! ;)

    Danny and Hawkes working together is always a treat. I love those two, and I hope this means we'll get to see more of Hawkes this season rather than always having him in the background. :)

    No unnecessary Danny/Lindsay scene. I really expected it, after the end of season 2, but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm sure the writers will make up for it in the next few episodes, but for now I can at least say that the premiere wasn't ruined by that crap. :rolleyes:

    Lindsay was on a roll with the science tonight. Maybe they're acknowledging that she's more of a scientist than a cop, similar to what Eddie said in that interview from a little bit ago. The experiment on Mac was pretty funny too. ;)

    Can I just say that I thought the fist-print thing was totally cool? /dork :lol:

    "Marry Me" on the side of the building? So sweet. :p But Flack, darling, you don't have to do anything so extravagant for the ladies, just smile and promise never to wear those wretched ties again, and you're gold. :lol: (But I just kid, I have to say the ties work for Flackie. ;))

    I'm loving Detective Angell so far. I don't think she's an Aiden clone or anything like that. A beautiful woman with dark hair is sometimes just a beautiful woman with dark hair. And as for the attitude--who on this show doesn't have one? :lol: So yeah, I really don't see the Aiden-rip-off comparison. I thought she was great, and I'm hopeful that she'll be a good addition to the show. I agree that there was a lot of newness in this episode, but with Kelly Hu gone, they sort of had to jump right in with the new detective. I like that Danny and Hawkes clearly knew her already, and they were all immediately comfortable working together. I may have detected a bit of teasing/flirting there at the beginning of that scene, methinks. ;) Between Danny and Hawkes, though, I have to say Angell should definitely go for The Good Doctor. :lol: Aside from the lame line about the angel getting her wings, it's total hotness (and besides, the teddy bear needs some loving too ;)). :lol:

    Love love love Hammerback. :lol: They just dove into his craziness, and that makes teh Fay happy. :p

    The guys looked hot, of course. :devil: And Danny even had on a button-up shirt at the end. Sexy sexy, baby. :lol:

    Oh, and my mother informed me that Gary is bringing sexy back with that first scene. :lol:

    ***

    And now for the not-so-good things :( :

    Er, Stella, I could totally see most of your boobs this time around. :eek: Can I, like, help you find the other half of your shirt? It's not that she looked vulgar or anything, I just think it was a bit much.

    I'm not too fond of Peyton at this point. Haven't seen much of her, it's true, but I dunno...she's just sort of meh to me so far. I immediately liked Angell, whereas I sort of blinked and waited to catch on with Peyton. I didn't like that she was all 'who interrupted my activities? *waggles eyebrows at Mac*' (not a quote, obviously :p) at the crime scene--that was just not right.

    Don't get me wrong, I know they wanted to introduce the romance angle and show how Mac deals with it, etc, but I'm not confident at this point. And I have to say, it makes me even more apprehensive about any possible Danny/Lindsay thing the writers might have in mind. My personal dislike of it aside, can you imagine how awkward it would be? The few Mac/Peyton scenes that dealt with it were kind of iffy for me, so imagine if it were two main characters instead of one main character with a guest star...not good, I'm thinking. Honestly, I hope the writers leave the D/L thing hanging at this point and choose to drop it before they take it anywhere. Shipping is fun in fanfic, but on the show, no thanks.

    Can I just say that I called the father as the murderer as soon as they showed him on the roof with his daughter? I should have bet money on it. :rolleyes:

    Naked bungee jumping--I gotta jump on the 'no thanks' bandwagon here. :rolleyes: They couldn't have just been bungee jumping? It had to be about sex?

    Well, that's all I can think of for now. We'll see if anybody adds anything else we've missed so far. ;)

    o.o If someone stumbles across a transcript of this episode.. Please let me know :D I kinda wasn't paying too much attention at the beginning because mom was destracting me x.X AND THEN she forgot to tape it while I was in the shower. My chances for seeing it again are ruined.. >.> <.<

    Holy crap Faylinn, you wrote a novel! :lol: I agree with yo on the shipping thing. I don't mind two characters getting together, I guess, but this whole in Peyton and Mac beginning the show and ending it was a little too much for me.

    The woman said: "Trey, promise me you'll never have bungee sex with anyone else." Yeah...pumpkin even if he wanted to do it with another person, I doubt he'll find someone that'll want to do that right off the bat.

    OT:Didn't det. angell play on Two and a half men?

    ^yes Angell was on Two and aHalf Men.

    I didn't think she was an Aiden clone, but I definitely felt she brought a character to the show that seemed to be missing since Aiden left. S2 was too much about sweet Lindsey, with a little Maka thrown in. But like I mentioned, Maka didn't really catch on for me. She kind of scared me actually. Angell I liked right away and seemed a little more down to earth.

    I have to say I didn’t pay to much attention love Mac shirtless, but bad idea in having that as an opening scene. I have to say I kind of like that Peyton [​IMG], the stories kind of got me a bit confused.
    Flack, love that he’s back to work :D Danny, love the glasses, I didn’t pay to much attention to him or Hawkes damit that shirtless scene. Lindsay wtf was that about the tie? Love Lindsay, but I didn’t like her in this episode. Stella she looked beautiful although she could have covered up more. Sid :lol: what can I say about Sid I love that guy. How about Adam he was looking mighty fine there. Peyton, I like her, pretty but needs to eat more. I give it a B-. Im really looking forward to next week’s episode I got goosebumps when I saw the promo

    I liked it but I thought they threw too many new people at us in one episode, especially the season premiere. I want to see the regulars, not all these new people that we don't even know. I don't particularly care for Angell. She's like a poor substitute for Aiden. But then I never cared much for Aiden either. But I guess if Danny is flirting with her all the time then he won't have time for Lindsay. I've been seriously Flack-starved so I was very happy to see him, though I could have used more of him. He's my fave character so I'll always be watching for his screen time. Danny looks good; like the new look. They changed Stella's makeup; added more mascara. It's a bit much, but now she has to compete with two new women for screen time so they may have decided to beef up her look a bit. All in all it was a good episode except for all the new characters distracting us from our regulars.

    I enjoyed the hell out of this episode. NY seemed to get some of its fun back after a somewhat dour end to season two.

    A few things that stood out:

    --Hawkes and Hammerback. These two need to take their act on the road! I love it when Sid goes to the scary place when Hawkes is around, because Hawkes' reactions are so perfect. :lol:

    --Hawkes taking charge. Rawr! He's totally come into his own as a CSI.

    --Mac and Peyton. So sue me, I like them. It's nice to finally see Mac loosen up! He so needs to. I rolled my eyes at the end when he started complaining about working with her, but then when he stopped her from leaving, I was happy. It was a nice moment. Claire Forlani is cool.

    --So is Detective Angell! She really does look like Aiden, but as someone pointed out, she did a great job and didn't go over the top. Too bad they decided to pair Danny with Mary Sue Monroe instead of her; I sensed chemistry between Angell and Danny.

    --Speaking of Lindsay, she remains as noxious a character as ever. How nice of her to be all ready to haul Erica in based on only her own supposition. :rolleyes: Good thing Mac and Stella actually remember what their job is--to interpret the evidence--because if Lindsay was in charge they would no doubt be collaring the wrong people left and right. At least there were no angst scenes; the scene with Mac and Stella was cute and reminded me that Anna and Gary do have good chemistry.

    --Flack! How cute was he when he was getting phone numbers? :D Awwww.... :D :D :D It was great to see Stella pull him aside to see how he was doing.

    --Danny reminded me why he's my favorite character when he told Margo in the end that he would have believed her. There's something honest and sweet about the character that really makes him stand out. And I thought I'd hate the new haircut, but I don't.

    --The cases were intriguing and I liked the common thread that tied them together.

    Argh! How could I forget to mention Adam?! :eek:

    I loves Adam, and I wants to have AJ Buckley's love child. :p But please, people, he looks like too much of a nerd. :lol: They can sex up the scientists with badges, but the ones in the lab have to say geeky? Oh, why?! :lol:

    And is it just me, or does his little beard make his face look kinda fat? *scratches head* Take a little gander at my avvie, with all it's sexiness, and tell me you don't wish Adam looked more like that. :lol:

    But Alyssa, you should know by now that I write novels all of the time! :lol:

    feenx, I didn't dislike Peyton, I just didn't immediately love her. It's not the romance with Mac, thing...I dunno. *shrug*

    I don't think Angell is a poor substitute for Aiden. I swear I really don't see where the comparison is coming from. Yes, they have some things in common, but I don't see the big deal. Aiden is gone, now, and if something was missing without her (as kasmith said), I have absolutely no problem getting it from this new detective. ;) I think she'll fit in with the team quite nicely, and I don't want to prejudice myself against the character just because she's a pretty girl with attitude (like Aiden was). Aiden didn't corner the market on that character trait. ;) :lol:

    Edit: I was posting at the same time as you, Top. :lol: Excellent points. ;)
