we are discussing season 2 now so I thought I'd bring over the recent comments...


Quote:
201:

Maria looks hot!

Maria and Max "bonded"? That's cute. I like that interaction. Max could use more fun. I love that she told him he was being a whiney baby about Liz. lol.

Hello Chase from Army Wives. So funny, that actor is so young and skinny here, and then I saw him on a different show recently and he is older and heavier. So strange.

Love that Valenti is on their side now.

In general I found the episode kind of blah.

Quote:
I miss you Michael.
I know, but don't.



Stab me in the gut!




Quote:
I've always felt like Skin and Bones was kind of a blah episode, too. You can tell that the WB was pushing the show to be much more sci-fi at this point. The Cadmium X stuff went right over my head the first 20-ish times I watched it.

Over the years, I've been able to pinpoint little moments here and there that I really like about the episode, but obviously the dialogue you put in quotes is my favorite! She says 4 simple (but really not so simple) words to him, and he says 4 simple (but really not so simple) words to her back. Michael and Maria, I swear . . . they are so imperfectly perfect for each other.

Quote:
202:

Awkward dancing is awkward. Tess is so bad. haha. And why is Liz sitting down?

Nothing against Emilie but her accent is horrible. I do like the Kyle/Tessa interaction though.

Another kind of meh episode for me, but I did like it better than the premiere.


Quote:
Same. I like this episode, but it's not one that I would choose to rewatch all the time.

I've always thought that moment where Max is running and then WIPES OUT on the sidewalk is epic, though.

Quote:
Yeah I liked the beginning. Everyone running to help him was cute.

I also though his speech to Liz was sweet, even if a little cheesey.

And I liked seeing Michael kind of blow off the girl that flirted with him and Maria acting all jealous.

Quote:
203:
Interesting opening...

Weird Isobel/Michael tension... can that be over now?

I like seeing jealous Maria. Michael, get your butt in gear.

Fun episode, I liked the party theme. Great episode for Isobel.... Alex's striptease

Quote:
Yeah, it was weird, like the writers couldn't decide what they wanted to do with Isabel/Michael at the start of the season. I'm glad they didn't pursue the love triangle route there--maybe they figured they already had their hands full with the Liz/Max/Tess situation.

I loved jealous Maria, too. She's so dramatic.

I've always enjoyed this episode. Though I think Whitaker is killed off too early, and they never follow up on any guilt or remorse that Isabel may feel for killing her.

In response to your post April I agree, I feel like they were on the verge of doing something with Isobel/Michael but realized its not what people wanted. lol.

Maria is dramatic for sure, but we love her for it.

Is Majandra wearing extensions this season?

TFTNT, Alexa.

I wasn't either tbh..well I mean I liked it on her ok and she looked really pretty, but I feel like the short hair suited her personality more.

I'm just a fan of long hair, so I liked it. But I do agree that short hair suited her personality well, too.

I don't know, but I'm excited to hear her thoughts! The next episode is one of my favorites! (And I believe it was either Brendan's or Majandra's favorite to film, if I recall. Or . . . one of their favorites, because I know they're both suckers for 285 South. )

I watch every monday, just so you're aware.

204;

You were wrong April, Michael wasn't in that first scene. lol.

Liz looked amazing this episode

oh I remember this episode... Sorry April, I have to say it was one of my least favorites. I just found all the weird flashback/au stuff SO BORING.

I did like the "michael/maria" parts in the au though, it kind of reminded me of the OTH au 40s episode.

Isobel looked great with brown hair and i didnt see any chemistry in the kiss with michael.

the michael/liz scene was

You mean the opening scene with the Granolith? Yes, he was! Yes, he was! Take my word on this! I'm an obsessive freak who has watched these episodes way too much!

If you don't take my word for it, here: 2.04 Summer of '47 - Roswell204 0009 - DVD Screencaps
@ his chain in this cap.

He says, "Did Nasedo ever mention a rock collection?"



I should have known you wouldn't like this episode. I should know you well enough by now.

I love it.

Liz did look amazing in this episode. All the girls looked great in the 40s flashbacks, honestly. But Liz's present-day hair was just . . . They were definitely trying to make her look more womanly this season, you could tell.

I like her early season 2 hair better than her late season 2 hair, though. These first couple episodes, it just looked flawless. Like bouncy shampoo commercial hair.

So, fun fact about this episode: I had to do an informative speech for a class I took my freshman year of college, and I chose the 1947 crash as my topic. So I re-watched this episode to brush up on my facts, and I also re-read some info in the "Crash Into Me" book that I own and credited that as a source. Got an A on the speech. #Likeaboss

Oh, yes, it really was. Just horrible having to re-watch my Roswell episode and re-read my Roswell book. Awful.
