Rocket Man – My favourite Elton John song and one I’ve always wanted to use for Sam (Mars, Mars, Mars.) Exile. Fuck yes.
“As opposed to one of those “I really, really like you” sort of murders?” – HAHAHA – totally makes up for any and all bigotted things Gene previously said. Yes, I know that’s bad.
Um. Okay. This scene is… okay. Wow.
Gene is jealous. There. Said it.
THE FUCK? “No, no, no, no, no – you’re more like absolutely gorgeous cop.”
This is amazing. Guy is my new personal hero. You don’t, actually, get slashier than that.
… and Sam’s being an idiot again. Holy hell. He does not learn. Oh good. This ended nicely.
They should really borrow the invisible sofa I gave Sam.
Annie’s amusing when she’s bitchy.
Fucking genius shot. Andrew Gunn is a great director.
Philip Glenister can fucking kill with that gaze. And Sam. I love you.
Phil totally lost his accent?!
And I just realised Sam’s wearing the shirt I love.
Gene’s brother. Oh my. Oh. OH. Oh Gene. Brother Stuart. His father was an alcoholic child-beater. Haha, this is all the kind of stuff Phil didn’t want us to know, bless him.
Hand on shoulder. “No need to come over all Dorothy.” Hahahaha. I fucking love these two.
“Brace yourself, here comes the blade.” – Great line. Awful, but great.
OMG, PHIL IS THE BEST FUCKING ACTOR EVER.
Awwww Sam. Such an endearing crazycakes.
YAY, SIMM IN ACTION!
Hahaha. Go Sam. You violent little shit. “An amoeba with special needs” = LMFAO - This is Sam’s witty comeback? Oh, Sam, you try so hard.
GENE I LOVE YOU
Except… not right now. Oh, Gene.
OMG, OMG, SAM! That is fucking awful. Oh Shit. Gene, where the fuck are you? Power cut. Nice. Dude. Don’t laugh. It’ll come on any moment.
They’ve defiled my favourite Sam shirt?!
Gene called her Annie. FIRST TIME EVER?
Oh, Chris. (He’s going to solve the case, isn’t he?)
FUCKING TOLD YOU HE’D PULL IT OUT!
“Bit of a headache but I’m still here”? Uh, yeah, just ruin all of Annie’s character development with one “I’m a damsel in distress” scene.
Oh. Oh my God. Oh. Instant tears time.
Hahahaha. Of course. This is Sam’s way of getting out of dodge so he can have his relationship with Annie in the last two episodes.
I love the theme Ed’s created. It’s so pretty. But Sam. He’s really articulate. Almost as much as I am.
And because Guy is awesome, he gets in both Sam/Annie and Sam/Gene. My kind of writer.
LMFAO – OH SAM & GENE.
Okay, so this is close to being tied with 2.02 in favourite episodes. It's just so well rounded - you get almost everything - you get ensemble strength, you get Sam & Gene, you get Sam angst and Sam joy. It's really just fabulous. The direction is stunning - so many great shots and fantastic editing. And then we have Phil and John's performances, which are out of this world. Great.
The only thing which annoyed me a little bit was Annie's relegation back to secondary love interest for Sam, but, uh, you can't win them all, right?
