NCIS: Los Angeles Season 13 Episode 22 Review: Come Together

NCIS: Los Angeles Season 13 Episode 22 Review: Come Together
No surprises were to be found here.

It was a paint-by-numbers season finale on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 13 Episode 22.

That didn't mean it was disappointing. Instead, it was eminently predictable.

Didn't everyone have "Kensi and Deeks become parents" and "Callen and Anna take the next step in their relationship" on their season-ending game card?

There even was a bit of a case of the week that could be dispatched in the middle half-hour of the episode because, you know, it is a procedural at heart.

So let's first quickly dispatch with that just like the team did.

First, let's examine the robbery itself. The guards docilely loaded the bags of cash into the Utv. They decided to do their jobs and start firing at it as it was driving away.

Because, obviously, the big gun on it didn't have any firing range. Nor did the Utv have a reverse gear.

The Lincoln Lawyer review – it’s a modern-day Knight Rider! Buckle up

The Lincoln Lawyer review – it’s a modern-day Knight Rider! Buckle up
Netflix’s car-based legal drama is utter nonsense from axle to axle … but it’s worth it to watch the stars heroically deliver ludicrous lines with a straight face

Micky Haller is the Lincoln Lawyer. Why? Because he likes to work while being driven round in his Lincoln town car rather than at a desk. How come? Because he hates the restrictions of an office and because characteristics are easier than character, that’s why. Did you mind when Bergerac did it? Were you ever this picky about Knight Rider? No? Well, you can get behind this car-led David E Kelley adaptation of Michael Connelly’s 2008 novel The Brass Verdict without any more questions then, can’t you?

Right. Micky (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) is an LA defence attorney who developed an addiction to OxyContin after a terrible surfing accident and multiple operations left him in pain and unemployed. They also left

Stingray: The Complete Series Deluxe Edition

Blu ray

Network

1964, 1965 / 1.33:1 / 975 Min.

Starring Ray Barrett, Robert Easton, David Graham, Don Mason, Lois Maxwell

Written by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson

Directed by Alan Pattillo, David Elliott, John Kelly, Desmond Saunders

If nothing else, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s Stingray should be celebrated for inspiring Team America: World Police, the gonzo marionettes-on-the-make political satire from South Park agitators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. If their 2004 farce was designed to provoke just about everybody, Stingray was also pretty out there, albeit in a trippy, Summer of Love kind of way. An aquatic puppet show swimming in psychedelic color, languid pacing, and underwater scenes apparently filmed inside a lava lamp, Stingray reflected the inveterate stoner’s mindset better than anything in Yellow Submarine. The entire series has just been released in an extravagant five disc box set from Network, Stingray: The Complete Series Deluxe Edition,

Watch: Fun Supercut of 'The Most Important Device in the Universe'

Watch: Fun Supercut of 'The Most Important Device in the Universe'
"This equipment is far superior to ours!" There's an object that appears in many sci-fi films from the 70s and 80s that really has no use, and just "looks cool" - it's known as "Blinking Tubes Without Function". (Read more about it here.) A YouTube channel has created a series of supercut videos with all the footage of these blinking red tubes from every TV show & film it appears in. The funniest thing about this is noticing how the exact same prop appears over and over, almost like they just wheel the thing around to different sets and some guy plugs it in and everyone goes "oh, wow." It's in everything from Star Trek (of course) to V to Knight Rider to Trancers to Airplane II, even in one Austin Powers. I'm glad it doesn't appear anymore, but I wonder if it's in the background of some sci-fi show? Maybe.

Transformers Fans Celebrate Optimus Prime as Peter Cullen Turns 80 Years Old

Transformers Fans Celebrate Optimus Prime as Peter Cullen Turns 80 Years Old
Transformers fans today celebrated the 80th birthday of the man behind the much loved leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime; Peter Cullen. The Canadian actor has lent his distinctive tone to many characters over the years such as Eeyore in Winnie The Pooh, Monterey Jack in the original Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers cartoon series and even provided the vocal sounds of the Predator in the original movie, but it is his work as Optimus Prime that has gained him the majority of his huge following of fans.

Peter Cullen was born in Montreal in 1941 and after an uneventful childhood began working in the entertainment industry in the 1960s on radio. It was through working as a radio announcer that he built up his skills as a voice artist, which included numerous stints on his home town radio station working overnight and weekend shift swings.
