Nice showcasing of Richard Norton's
fighting skills (and his pectoral muscles) in the opening scene.
Why is there a woman in this prison? And who is that guy with the
long hair whose back is turned to us (as if we didn't know already?)
I DO MY LITTLE TURN ON THE CATWALK:
Instead of having one of the characters
explain who these convicts are they introduce them in the most bald-faced
manner they could: they send 'em down a runway to the wagon and
introduce all of them in voice over.
Again, how did they think we wouldn't
know who that was under all the hair?
WITH ME, I'LL SHOW YOU THE ROPES, AND THE CHAINS AND THE HANDCUFFS
All the prisoners jump up into the wagon,
but no guards are in there
to put them in manacles. They are all
in manacles up on the wagon walls
when Warden Brice speaks to them. Did
they do it themselves?
THIS MAKE ME LOOK STUPID?:
Robin tries on his ridiculous wedding
attire. It really isn't all that bad until you add the hat.
The hat really does make it look silly.
When Lilly gets her manacles undone
she unlocks Trueco, who then helps her unlock the others. How can
he help her when there was only one key?
GOING MY WAY:
The Convicts and Robin are both going
to the same place, so why are they going in different directions?
Robin has to turn around to see the convicts who are
behind him and headed the other way.
Robin defeated himself in the Devil's
Bride, and has
come back for a rematch with Jacobi!
I AM MY OWN BEST FRIEND:
Would someone tell me why Jacobi cries
out his own name just before Robin stabs him to death? Is there a
third Matthew hiding in the underbrush?
NOT A SNAP:
Does someone who shall remain nameless
(Robin) not know
how to snap his fingers? It looks like
he's having difficulty.
DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN:
Martyn as the Wedding Coordinator is
just too too much. Not to mention, he's sadly misinformed.
Marion said she'd be there tomorrow for the wedding, and he thinks it's
the day after tomorrow.
Whatever the date is, shouldn't you be cleaning
out the place NOW in order
to be ready on the wedding day?
MIGHT BE AN OUTLAW IF...:
The Convicts should know it's not Jacobi
by now. His voice is higher, he has trouble snapping his fingers,
and he smiles too much.
WALLS HAVE EARS:
Robin doesn't want to be overheard in
the kitchen, so he checks the hallway,... and leaves the door wide open.
He has to leave it open so we can see Mr. Mills' shadow on the wall.
SEEN HIM BEFORE:
How come Caitlin doesn't recognize Robin?
She was Sir Guy's nurse in Bombs Away. (Andrea Griffin, who may or
may not be related to Barbara Griffin aka Marion)
OUT THE LYSOL:
Sherriff: "I can smell their criminality."
smell something too, the distinct odor of
IS AS IT SEEMS:
In another flip-flop among swticharoos,
Young Francis is actually Young Frances. (Ever see the movie Yellowbeard?
Do you remember Mr. Prostitute? LMAO)
Robin's leather vest keeps falling off
in the most
becoming and almost Flashdance kinda way.
Okay, the Convicts should know beyond
a doubt now that Jacobi isn't Jacobi. The man who murdered 2 people
in prison just saved the hostages and the Sherriff. Good thing
these dolts are too stupid to figure it out.
PART OF ENGLAND ARE YOU FROM?:
British Outlaws, please tell me if I'm
wrong, but to me it sounds like Matthew learned his cocky Cockney from
WAS THAT FOR???:
Robin (as Jacobi): "Afterwards
we'll dump the bodies in the bay." He says this line and then sticks
his tongue into his lower lip and makes a noise and a funny face.
Would someone tell me why???? Maybe he was trying to make someone
BITE OFF MORE THAN YOU CAN CHEW:
Lilly kisses Robin and bites his lip!
Hey, save some for the rest of us!
Okay, I get the feeling that some prankster
was at work in this episode. Sherriff Bickerton puts on his hat and
Brice rides up with Jacobi draped over
his saddle, arms hanging down. If you're fast enough you will see
Jacobi brace his right hand on the horse's leg as he goes past the camera.
You can't see the
other hand because he's got ahold of the saddle
girth with that one.
OTHER POLICEMAN'S BALL:
When the Sherriff says his line about
the policeman's ball, you might notice Jacobi's body shake a little bit.
That was so funny he had to laugh.
We already knew the Convicts were going
to the docks at Hardwick, so why did they have to hit us over the head
with the signs that say Hardwick Docks?
It's nice to see that all of the fishnets
the Mongols in the very first episode went
back to their intended usage.
DID THAT COME FROM?:
There was absolutely no reason for Brice
to bring Robin's bag of clothing with him. Oh yeah, Robin does use
it briefly as a weapon, I guess that's why.
YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON'T:
Have you noticed yet? The most
damning piece of evidence that Jacobi isn't Jacobi isn't here in this episode.
The Dragon Tattoo-- so obvious last season-- is conspicuously absent this
season. Guess Robin had it lasered.
Coordinator: "This is a genuine
Vermicelli!" Do you
mean the worm or the spaghetti?
The Coordinator and Mr. Mills go mincing
off, Talbot and Caitlin make their escape, and Robin is left alone with
the Sherriff. I wanna know how many takes it took for Matthew and
Richard to get through this scene; to me it looks like one or the other
was about to lose it and
No one had time to wash their dirty
faces before the
wedding ceremony, huh? Oh, but Robin
had time to change his clothes.
NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE:
When Robin realizes Marion is bemoaning
the fact he didn't wear the lacy wedding clothes, he opens his mouth as
if he intends to explain it to her right there in the middle of the
Marion covers her eyes, Tuck covers
his mouth, and Little John puts his hand over one ear. Reminds me
of some little monkeys we all know.
Too bad that Robin had to kill Jacobi.
He might have been a fun character to see develop. But it turned
out okay; it's probably one of the first times (outside a soap opera)
where an actor's character has been killed off and he remained on the show.
