Juliet! How dumb is she?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0491738/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

A genius sleuth is threatened with jail time for solving a crime he could only have figured out if h had been a conspirator in said criminal activity, unless he was a psychic.

7 YEARS LATER

The sleuths fiancée, a girl cop, is all in a fluster that psychics are not real and she's been a dupe for his shenanigans for the last 7 YEARS.

Surprise!

News Flash!

Psychics are not real!

So.

How dumb was she?

Re: Juliet! How dumb is she?

But did she spell "Superhumanly" correctly?

Re: Juliet! How dumb is she?

"Humane" means to care about your common man, or treat with tenderness.

There's every chance that that was a Freudian slip as much as a typo, but then some argue that all typos are Freudian slips.

Never heard of the show. I thought this thread was about Shakespeare.

Re: Juliet! How dumb is she?

The show is awesome, but for a show on for seven years the characters never change or grow. You can't tell the difference between the pilot and a new episode besides age and weight gain.

How isn't Sean Peter Pan?

Until this recent daunting explosion, he was on the wedding track, living with a woman & talking about children.

Then BOOM!

Which is pretty much what ALL series television drama was like until Hill Street Blues came along in 1981.

Re: Juliet! How dumb is she?

The only thing that is completely consistent is the secret pineapple which the crew hides some where in the shooting location before filming starts... Have you checked Netflix yet scotpens?

If Dule's character recognisably grows up, he'll just be Charlie from the West Wing again, which is exactly what he was trying to avoid when he took this part.

Re: Juliet! How dumb is she?

Yeah, her reaction to "finding out" really doesn't fit the character as has been portrayed up until now.

On a related note, I wasn't sure if this was about Grimm or Psych until I read the first post.

Same here - though Juliet in Grimm is more fucking annoying than anything else! (They really need to get rid of her, especially now that Nick and Monroe have seen sense and moved in together)

Re: Juliet! How dumb is she?

Lassy can't believe Sean is a psychic?

Jules "Sean is not a psychic!"

Lassy "Haven't I been telling you that every day for the last seven years?"

I definitely know the chief is, and Lassister just accepts that he's full of drek. I guess they wanted to cover the other extreme with Juliet even though it seemed pretty obvious that she knew, too.

What's really odd is her reaction though. What Sean's been doing isn't much worse than what Declan did and she was all over him when she found out. Considering Sean's success rate and the sheer volume of aid he's provided, who cares if he's just hyperperceptive or "psychic?" It amounts to the same thing, just with different labels...

Re: Juliet! How dumb is she?

If the chief was eventually/has always been in on it, then Sean was very quickly out of danger of being locked away for crimes they thought he was involved in unless he's the Lex Luthor of Santa Barbara and has been involved with every crime he has so called solved.

Karen was pregnant in season 1.

Pregnant women, opposed to pregnant men, are all crazy people.

Saner than regular women, but still crazy.

Surely if Chief Vic believed that anyone who claims to have psychic powers might be able to close cases that she should be hiring more psychics, by the pound and the bushel.
