When the squad presented Brenda with a new purse at the end, she said, "Looks like love"...her last line in the show. Did you know it was also her first line in the show?

I guess the boy Rusty is there to give Raydor some family life. But she has grown children who visit, and there's the husband from whom she's been separated for 20 years. He should be good for a couple of episodes.

The purse the squad got for Brenda to replace the one she fired through to get Stroh -- it's not the same as the one she carried for seven years. That one was a black tote, a rectangle with handles. The new one had a front flap and a clasp. But of course she didn't say anything, because it was such a thoughtful gesture. Goodbye, Brenda, and thenk yew so much.

Maybe Rusty is meant to be a substitute for Joel (the cat) and Raydor is keeping him as a pet. So far I don't care much for either the role or the actor (irritating voice).

One thing was explained in this last episode that had bothered me, and that was the new regime making deals instead of going after confessions. Raydor said deals cut out the middleman. Instead of sending cases to court and letting 12 civilians decide innocence or guilt, deals sent the criminals straight to prison. That makes sense, in a cynical kind of way.

Did anyone watch the two new shows, Mob Doctor and Revolution? The first might be good, once they get over showing how busy and caring and ethical she is. I don't know about the second.

I just watched Revolution--post-apocolypse, supposedly 17 years or something. No one's clothing seems to have worn out, however, and most of the men still must have razor blades. My willing suspension of disbelief never appeared.

Yeah, and it's the same old same-old. I've had enough of post-apocolypse stories to last me the rest of my life.

Post-apocolypse stories pretty much all follow the same pattern, survivors jockying for position in whatever hierarchy has developed, either with or without monsters/aliens/zombies. (Revolution is without, thank goodness.) The guys at the top are always the ones who have the guns, plus a seemingly inexhaustible supply of ammo. I did like Billy Burke's Uncle Miles; only he and Zak Orth (Aaron) seemed credible to me. None of the rest of the cast were strong enough to make their stereotypical characters into real individuals. On the whole, I agree with Austin; enough, already.

The first post-a stories came out during the cold war, and a lot of them featured a fanatical religious cult of some sort. They were either on top of the heap or a serious threat to those who were, but I guess people got tired of that for I haven't seen it for years.

For once I think Survivor is justified in bringing back previous players for a second chance, this time three guys who were evacuated from their games for medical reasons. None was voted off, so now they can finish what they started (although one is in trouble already).

Rita, don't I remember you saying you were swearing off Survivor forever?

Yes, I did. Twice. I may do it a third time.
