Sorry I'm late again. I'm going to set up some auto posts because I let myself get distracted by the site and other stuff.

I didn't even watch 406 right away there was so much going on. *sigh* I'll be back to give my GBG.

Common Ground? Did you mean Savages? It aired just before Blood of My Blood when I watched it Sunday.

I thought both episodes were extremely well done. Loved seeing Murtagh again and all the Herr Mueller (and his family) scenes.

I thought the actor playing Lord John was wonderful, as was the child playing Willie.

I did mean Savages. Grrr. My brain is just got too much going on.

I really enjoyed Savages with Murtagh's return. I was all teary eyed.

I didn't love Blood of My Blood upon first watch but liked it more upon second viewing. I do agree David Berry is an excellent Lord John. I didn't love William as much but I figure we won't see this actor much if at all going forward so I'm not worried about it.

On second thought, neither did I. I found him trying a little too hard to be bratty. As you said, we won't see much more, if any, of him.

I noticed that too. Every time he screwed his face up I got a little annoyed. But I did love when he tries to get off the horse and Jamie tells him not to try it without even turning around. Jamie's a dad.

I liked the reunion with Murtaugh.
The scenes with Claire and Mr. Mueller were hard to watch, but done very well.

I didn't care much for Blood of my Blood, I don't remember much from the books anymore, but I remember enough to see that they've changed major plot point with regards to Willie and Jamie, and I didn't care overly much for that.
Outside of that I felt like the pacing was a bit off in that episode. I guess at this point I'm just very impatient for seeing more of Brianna.

I loved Murtagh reunion. I was just dying waiting for it.

Mueller. So awful. It was so hard to watch but you're right very well done.

I didn't mind the things they changed but I wasn't keen on the episode. It is part of the book but they separated it from the Mueller part which were intertwined. I feel like they are just taking pieces of the book and dedicating time to that piece. It is a interwoven story and they need to really make that evident.

I was too. I just want to see what happens.
