You can't, ABC delays shows a week. At least they did last time I checked and said "gently caress that." It's released right after the next episode ends, so there's no window to catch up.

There's nothing they can really DO with Angelus except watch the clock until he inevitably gets turned back into Angel and mopes over whatever he did as Angelus for a few episodes more.

I can't find it on YouTube, but I also loved the scene where Lincoln is going to lie to Congress about the Confederacy not sending a peace envoy (he's been delaying them), and the person he's given the letter to give to Congress is like "But sir, impeachable lying scandalous" and Lincoln just slowly takes the guy's hand and looks him in the eye and takes the letter and hands it to the shitbag next to him who's totally happy to lie to Congress and takes off running.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer seemed like it had a few moments where the supernatural metaphor concept really broke down like in the second season when Angelus did things that seemed forgivable in the context of forced magical transformation but unforgivable as a metaphor for domestic violence and abuse

Yeah, the Buffy mythos has some confused ideas about how much agency someone has when they're under magical influence or "have no soul". Like it doesn't let a lot of people off without some guilt but its all over the place on what exactly a "soul" does. Angel and Angelus are two completely different people and Spike is just Spike. And there's a ton of abuse metaphor in there so its real sketchy at times.

Caught another subtitle mismatch on Prime, this one on 30 Rock.

Voice:
"Worse than the time we let Tracy do that tribute to August Wilson?"
"That was my fault, I should have made sure he knew who August Wilson was."
"Maybe we'll be pre-empted by some national news event. How's Gerald Ford's health?"

Sub:
"Worse than the time we let Tracy do that tribute to August Wilson?"
"Worse than the time we did that Gilbert and Sullivan parody."
"Maybe we'll be pre-empted by some national news event. It's still hurricane season, right?"

Googling tells me this aired a month before Gerald Ford died so they replaced the joke with the hurricane thing on DVD, so at least there's an explanation for this one.

And then there was the "magic=drugs" metaphor that stopped being a metaphor when Willow started physically jonesing.

All supernatural metaphors break down as one-to-one allegory for real life issues if you examine them too closely because it turns out magic isn't real.

Even the OG Aesop's fables is vulnerable to this, the lesson of the tortoise and the hare should be 'don't take a nap in the middle of a race, you dipshit'.

I've been watching Person of Interest this week and I've been enjoying it. But it's awfully convenient that all the numbers coming out just happen to be people in NYC. Or did I miss some throwaway line at the beginning about them ignoring people outside the city? Anyway, I'm almost done with the first season and that was just a random thought that crossed my mind.

I mean, more or less. It's about being careful and methodical and not letting overconfidence lull you into making mistakes.

It can definitely do more, but with their limited resources it makes sense to only give them localized things.

It gets much more broad as they do as well over the course of the show

This is eventually addressed. If you really wanna know former numbers who leave NYC may get recruited by the machine to be their own branch.

PoI is seriously such a good Sci Fi show. I love the crime of the week episodes as much as I love the overarching story. I think that and Fringe are the only long running shows that actually pulled that off.
