#300 was last night. Here are my thoughts:

Frame-By-Frame
I’m going to be honest: my mind wasn’t blown. If I were a star-giving reviewer, this is not a five-star episode. There were moments that didn’t quite click, plot devices that were frustrating, and a tropey twist that made me kind of want to throw things at the TV. That being said, I’d still give it four stars (out of five) because despite the moments that didn’t click, and the frustrating things, the trope worked out in the end. To be fair, I’ve lived through 300 episodes of moments that don’t always click and frustrating plot devices. If CSI has taught me anything over the years, it’s to be patient with the storytelling. For Frame By Frame, the patience paid off and what pushed it over the edge from three stars to four was the emotional connection made with the fans at the end.

what drove me nuts is the fact that they said Darcy disappeared 14 years ago and she was 18 when she went missing but the first time we meet her dad, he said today would have been her 30th birthday... um 14 + 18 doesn't equal 30. Drove me nuts.

This definitely wasn't up to my standard of being a 300th episode.. It was nice to see flashbacks of the cast.
