The Player: Episode Five

Wesley Snipes, it’s so good to see you back on the screen:

Oh, look who’s wearing an Apple Watch:

ThePlayers01e050115

Let’s use the WABAC Machine to find out how long she’s had that …

First episode, no Apple Watch:

ThePlayers01e010113

Second episode, possible Apple Watch:

ThePlayers01e020050

Third episode, Apple Watch:

ThePlayers01e030240

Fourth episode, impossible to tell because her sleeves were very long the entire episode:

ThePlayers01e040232

So, she’s had it and I didn’t see it until this episode. It was the MacBook Air in this episode that made me see it finally:

A big win for Apple Product Placement. Harumph.

The Pit Boss makes — ahem — house calls:

ThePlayers01e050125

Never. Touch. The. Pit. Boss.

Holy shit. I think if the anti-TV violence groups of the 1970s and 1980s were still in effect, their members would be having strokes watching this series. Is anyone keeping count of the number of shots fired and people put down?

Point blank too:

ThePlayers01e050174

ThePlayers01e050187

ThePlayers01e050188

Second house call:

ThePlayers01e050255

No spoiler.

And what did Cassandra see?

ThePlayers01e050265

It led up to a shocking episode ending …

ThePlayers01e050276

… that I won’t spoil.

Again, the side stories were more interesting and exciting than the main story with the hacker geek.

I’m reallllly wondering if The Player will be like Doctor Who, with a new Player for the next season. There’s only so long they can keep that ending in, cough, play.

I still say the rest of you need to catch on to and catch up with this series.

Wesley Snipes alone is worth watching — not that everything else isn’t too!
