I'd missed Clyde...although he was played by a box here.

Clyde's either preparing for the next TMNT reboot or he is in hiding because he tried to do Sherlock's Father Maggie Simpson style.

I spent most of the Christmas/New Years holiday on a Netflix binge re-watch of Hart of Dixie, so, I was happy to see Josh Cooke getting work as the murderer-of-the-week.

Rocket engines! Self-driving cars!
That guy sure has a … musky smell.

I thought this episode was great! Like last week I genuinely hadn't figured out the ending beforehand, and I felt like the twists were real and complicated without devolving into nonsense. Plus, Morland.

Mphm. This one had a major GFE, "broke-the-plausibility-meter" moment for me - well, 2 related, actually. First, the idea that there's only one rocket engine actually being used in the world, and second, that it's a Russian engine, even (according to the show) for NASA rockets. I mean, I know we're in a world of multi-national corporations, and the Russians are no longer the Evil Communist Empire, but there's no way the US would make all of our orbital payload capability dependent on them. Especially since several of the dominant aerospace companies are American. Plus common sense would tell you that you'll want to put things of varying sizes into orbit, so physics + cost-effectiveness would require different size rockets, and thus different size engines.

The "GFE" is that the first hit Googling "current rocket engines" is Wikipedia:Comparison of orbital rocket engines and five minutes poking around that makes all of the above blindingly obvious. So then the whole plot falls apart.

OTOH, it did have one of Lucy Liu's Best Deadpans right after Sherlock says, "It's been a while since you've had . . . . . . an intimate connection."
