Just Walk With Me Update!

Hi Everyone! Time to share an update!

If you are a regular visitor, you’ll have noticed my very slow progress and absences- I miss you guys!! I miss SMK!! So here’s a heads up on what is happening with JWWM. TheFirstTime-Banner1
The walk has been going now nearly 7 years! Whoa…
I can promise you, had I been on this walk alone – I would not have gotten past the first year (and the episode Lost and Found!). I value all who read and comment so I’ll share how things are looking for the walk and what is ahead.
I fully intend to complete the walk through all 88 episodes!

However… my online time (to reply to comments) and time for writing blog posts has pretty much become non-existent of late! Which makes me sad – but hey we can only do what we can do in life right? I can see that between now and the middle of 2019 I’m going to have even less time…Tegnersee-Banner3Final_zps879051d8  So here is what’s going to happen with JWWM moving forward: The walk is not going to be regular, I can’t be relied upon to post regularly (oh the shame haaa). Walks through season 4 episodes are going to be published irregularly – there may be long gaps between new episodes..but once I start a new episode I won’t have time gaps in episodes and I’ll probably publish for a week or two every few days. I will be aiming to walk through most season 4 episodes with much less detail than I’ve enjoyed covering season 1-3 too. However there are a few stand out season 4 eps which it would break my heart to not give it the love it deserves – yes like the next episode we will be walking through: Night Crawler!!!!

I suggest if you haven’t already – make sure you subscribe to the blog – and I will publish to update when a new episode is about to start being walked through and hopefully we can all meet back here around the same time to enjoy the episode together-ish! 

When I will publish the next episode I don’t know. This may be a one or two episodes a year kind of deal – I’m trying not to put expectations on myself and go with the flow, while giving all you wonderful people an idea of what’s going on.

I have the transcript for Nightcrawler all ready for me to actually write the posts.. and for anyone who has offered to transcribe dialogue – Thank you!!!! and I’ll try and give you an idea of when it may be needed (but if you can’t do it don’t worry I’ll just include less dialogue). Utopia-Banner6_zps08a4e6a0

If anyone would like to write some guest posts while things are very quiet – go for it!! We’ll be happy to publish your smk fun here!

Thanks again for an amazing 7 years – I hope there will be another 7 ahead! lol maybe we will get to the of season 4 by year 2025! haaaa!

Hope I will see you all stop by from time to time – I’m so grateful to have had you all to walk with!!! I thank you for your understanding and patience! Thanks to BJo and Learjet also for helping to moderate this forum and keep things running smoothly.

Any questions or suggestions, please share them in the comments below.

8/8 Season Four Episode Five: It’s in the Water

It’s tag time!! Back to IFF and the Q Bureau. Amanda is on the phone.
Amanda (on phone): That’s terrific Sally, I know you’ll be happy. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26190190190_thumb(Lee comes in)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26210877544_thumb
Amanda: Well, I don’t – You never know, maybe someday…
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26257257257_thumb
(pause) Okay…
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26272939606_thumb
…Say hello to Carmine for us. All right. Buh-bye.
(hangs up phone)
Lee (sits on side of Amanda’s desk): Who’s that? Sally?
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26336336336_thumb
Yeah, you know, Carmine’s been working all day with the Army engineers on the Omega Triad System.
Lee: I think the judge might take that into consideration at his trial.
Amanda: Hope so, he’s got a lot to look forward to.
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26417417417_thumb

Why? 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26439105772_thumb
Amanda: He asked Sally to marry him. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26444778111_thumb
Lee (grinning): No. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26467133800_thumb
Amanda: Mm-hm.
Lee: When’s the big day?
[Wait wait wait.. did Sally actually say yes?! I mean. Tee hee.. for me Carmine is no catch! Sally is the catch! ]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26500834168_thumb
They haven’t set a date, they’re going to take it one step at a time.
(Amanda doesn’t look up)
[Typical Carmine. ask her to marry him, but don’t set a date. LOL I know I’m so mean to Carmine!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26509175843_thumb
(Hearing this, Lee is thoughtful a moment, taking in Amanda)4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26520854188_thumb
Well, you never know. Maybe one day… 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26561227895_thumb
(Lee gives Amanda a sideways sneaky look)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26570570571_thumb
What? 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26579579580_thumb
That’s what you said on the phone.4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26605271939_thumb [Whoooo Lee is sooooo attentive I love it!
Is he wearing his kissing tie?! With the lips??!! lol I don’t think so.. but in the close up it looks like it! ]
Amanda: Oh yeah. (smiles) Well, ahh she asked me if I thought I’d ever get married again and I said “You never know, maybe someday.”
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26677677678_thumb
[Amanda is such a strong woman. She manages to give an answer while keeping it casual and keeping herself composed.]
Lee reacts..
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26683350017_thumb

4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26689356023_thumb(Lee winks at her.)
[I’ll do a wink  gif.. winks always look funny in still images!]
Lee quickly leans in for a kiss…
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26710377044_thumb
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26714714715_thumb
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26717050384_thumb
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26718718719_thumb
– but Billy walks into the Q-Bureau. Gah! They pull apart. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26721721722_thumb
[CINDY: Of course Billy walks in. GRRRR!]
[ROFL how Amanda immediately goes to act like she is writing something.]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26735735736_thumb
Billy: We have a meeting at the White House. Where’s the report?
(Lee [Mr Professional] rummages around in the bookcase for the report.)
Lee: Uh, it’s right here, Billy. Just relax for a second. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26766099433_thumb

Yeah second one under.
Lee: Yeah, right here
(Lee hands report to Billy.. Lee moves to leave the office following Billy.)
[Almost like he is trying to usher Billy out of the office so Billy can’t address his suspicion he walked in on something.. Both Lee and Amanda trying to act casual.]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26796463130_thumb
Amanda: See you later!
(Lee gives Amanda a last look as he heads out the door.)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26810477144_thumb
(He lets out an audible sigh)
[I think Amanda would have heard that! I swear this is ‘It’s in the Sighs’! ]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26823156490_thumb
[I think this sigh is a – ‘I wanted that kiss.. and I wanted to finish this conversation!’ what do you think?]
Lee closes the door giving Amanda a last little sly smile.
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26832832833_thumb
Amanda looks up slyly smiling to herself also..  4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26838838839_thumb[what’s she thinking folks?!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26872539206_thumb
Amanda looks up and chuckles to herself..
[Ahhhh she is one happy woman!!!
Is that two zebra on her desk?!]
And the episode ends.

What a way to leave things!!! Swoony!!!
Talk of marriage?! Amanda is open to marriage?! Lee also seems to be open to exploring marriage no??!!!! Squeeeeeee… Is marriage on Lee’s mind??!! I’m left with the vibe that this conversation is by no means finished!!!!

Okay if it’s thanks to Carmine that we get Lee and Amanda actually talking about marriage – then I like him. haaaaa..

For me, this episode has a couple of cute moments, but overall it’s pretty slow moving and seemed full of lots of filler.. and not the good (Lee and Amanda in love type). So I’m really sorry that this episode went so long on JWWM!
But.. this tag does leave me with warm fuzzy feelings about this ep. LOL!

Thanks again to Cindy for her transcription – and for sharing some comments along the way – it’s been lots of fun!!! Anyone else transcribing dialogue – feel free to do the same if you like!

Sooooo do tell! what do you all think of this tag? Of this episode as a whole?

7/8 Season Four Episode Five: It’s in the Water

Phewwwww!!! Where have the last few weeks gone? Hope everyone is well- ready to continue with this episode?! Here goes… Amanda car pulls up and Lee checks out the agent who is passed out in the front seat of the stake out car. [Uh oh!] 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_21142809476_thumb
Amanda: Who is it?
Lee: He’s one of our guys. He’s drugged. This Miller guy doesn’t fool around. [Yeah um Miller drugged Francine the day before yesterday you already knew that]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_21251584918_thumb
Amanda: Well, the backup ought to be here soon.
(Amanda gets out of her car)
Lee: Take it nice and slow, huh?
[I could listen to Lee say that line again and again and again!]
Amanda: Yeah.
(Lee approaches house, peering in the windows..)
Amanda (whispers): How’s it look?
Lee: Empty from here. I’m gonna check around the back. (Lee heads around the back of the home)
Amanda: Right. (Amanda stays out front, and  approaches the front door. She tries the door knob.)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_21604938272_thumb[No Amanda. Wait for the backup!]4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_21606606607_thumb
(Inside, we see a close up on the bomb, and the tied up Davis trio – don’t forget there is a bomb everyone!! lol. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_21623623624_thumb
Amanda goes to give the door a bit of a shove but  tyres screech and Billy and unidentified female agent pull up out front) 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_21716716717_thumb[Whoooo she has her trusty handbag and heels!! lol she has a banana clip too!]
Billy: What’s our status, Amanda?
Amanda: Lee’s in the back. There’s an agent down back in the blue car.
(Together they approach the front door, and Lee joins them)
Billy: Henderson (?) take care of it. Anything going on inside?
Lee: Empty as far as I can see.
Amanda: It’s okay, the door is unlocked.
Lee: Hold it! (Lee spots wire running along the floor along the hallway, through window) It’s booby trapped! [grrr Lee’s voice is all husky.. say ‘booby trapped’ again Lee hooo haaaa.. tee hee!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_21901568235_thumb
(Amanda looks terrified.. and slowly releases the door handle)4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_21836836837_thumb
We cut to a commercial break. lol. Will Amanda survive the commercials?! tee hee..
Back again!
Billy: No time for a bomb squad. It may be on a timer. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22092425759_thumb
Lee: Well, then we’ll have to go through the window.

(Amanda watches as she is hidden behind a tree as Lee covers his gun with a handkerchief and smashes the window by the door)4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22112445779_thumb
[Rofl at how dangerous it is to break a piddly little window haaaaa. Lee is soooooo brave!]
(Lee reaches in and carefully removes the metal plate on the door jamb and wraps it in a hanky. Yes. A heroic hanky.)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22319652986_thumb
[LOL wrap it in a hanky, pull on the wire and then leave it on the windowsill oh so carefully. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22454788121_thumb
I don’t know but this just looks really silly to me! Is it just me?
When he said we’ll have to go in through the window, I figured they would enter the premises through the window and just bypass the trigger for the bomb altogether. No, Lee has to be a hero and disconnect the bomb. tee hee.. Okay okay maybe getting the Davis’ out of there through a window wasn’t going to work. tee hee.. and this place clearly has no back door right? tee hee]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22501167835_thumbLee sighs – and looks over to Amanda. Relieved. The hanky is going to stop the bomb.. we are all safe. rofl.
[If they had a blue wire running to it and Lee cut that – I would have much preferred it.. a bit lame maybe but at least it would have been funny ..ummm on purpose!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22531197865_thumb(Cut to paramedics taking a stretcher out of the ambulance, Carmine’s mom is on another stretcher.)
[LOL where is her ambulance?! tee hee]
Mr. Davis: Get that thing out of here, I’m fine!
Amanda: Mr. Davis, they just don’t want to take any chances.
Mr. Davis: Look, I don’t care what they want, I’m not getting on that thing.
Carmine: Dad, would you just cooperate? We’ve got enough problems as it is.
Mr. Davis: You know, the problem was your 10th birthday. I never should have bought you that chemistry set. [ugh!]4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22683350017_thumb
Mrs. Davis: Norm, would you please do what they want and shut up. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22713046380_thumb
(Norm gets on the stretcher and the paramedics load into the ambulance.)
[Mother gets her finding her voice moment! rofl..]
EMT: Here we go.
Mrs. Davis: You’ll take care of our boy?
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22861861862_thumb
Amanda: I will.
[Aie, man-child! I love how there is no – Carmine you stay strong, be brave! No, it’s Amanda look after my boy for me. rofl! ]
(EMT loads Mrs. Davis into the ambulance)

Back to Lee and Billy trying to figure out what’s next here..4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_22989322656
Billy (gesturing at map): We have surveillance teams all the way from the purification plant down to here.
Lee: I bet Miller knows it too.
(Amanda and Carmine join them)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_23034701368
Carmine, is there any specific place where Miller might dump that poison? 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_23101768435

Not if he’s using the balloons. You gotta tell your men to look for either a red or yellow balloon and get them out of the water before they are sucked under by the intake pump.
[Okay. And what do we tell the women Carmine?!]4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_23150483817
Well, we could stretch a net across the waterway.
Carmine: Well, if there’s any hint of a current, you’re taking a chance. The nets will rip the balloons apart.
Lee: Look, Billy, Carmine can explain it all on the way up there. [Yep, I’m with Lee, this all seems to be moving too slowly.. more filler.. let’s just stand in front of Carmine’s and have a conversation. couldn’t they have had this conversation in the car? weird..]
Billy: All right. Go. I’ll stay here and put the purification plant on alert.
Lee: What’s beyond the main aqueduct?
Billy: Once you’re out there, you’re in the middle of the country.
[Uh oh. the country is evil in smk! LOL we see a blueprint of the plant – a hand waves over it like it’s suppose to indicate something. but errr it doesn’t really. lol]
Lee: Lots of places to hide. That’s where he’ll be.
Billy: Take Amanda with you and cover the perimeter. Here, take this field radio with you because I want to know what’s going on. (gives radio to Lee)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_23379045712
(passing radio to Amanda): You got it. Amanda, could you hold on to it?
(Lee takes the radio and directs Carmine to come with her to her car.)
Amanda: Yeah. Come on, Carmine.
Lee retrieves a big gun from the back of Billy’s car.) [LOL just sitting there on the backseat in an unlocked car. rofl!]

(Lee heads to Amanda’s car..
We cut to shot of Amanda’s land rover driving down the street in the country..)
Carmine: I know the area up there like the back of my hand.
Lee: Unfortunately, Miller’s the kind of guy who does his homework. He’ll know it too.

Carmine: I’m sorry, I tried to lie, but I was so scared I told this guy everything. [lol so we get this conversation in the car on the way anyway.. aie. this episode is pretty slow!
Oh no. Carmine feels guilt. So he should lol. Let him feel some guilt! tee hee..]
Amanda: Carmine, he gave you a truth drug, there is nothing you could have done. [Meh. Amanda is way more kind than I am!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_23826826827
Yeah, Amanda’s right. All we can do now is try to stop him before he hits us.
(Driving along we hear Carmine give directions..)
Carmine: There’s the road I used up ahead.
Lee: All right. Hold on, it can get pretty rough. (CINDY: snicker! Must get mind out of gutter!)
[No no. let’s just hang out in the gutter Cindy, it’s much more entertaining that this section of the episode!!]4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_24002002002(shot of Red Balloon of Doom gently floating on the river)
[rofl. love how you call them balloons of doom Cindy!]
Francine (over radio): We’ve checked the other entry points. No yellow balloons. Miller must be at your end.
Lee: Thanks Francine. Keep your eyes open and stay in touch.
Francine: Will do.
(Lee, Amanda and Carmine exit the car, Carmine looks around through the binoculars)
[CINDY: somehow, despite the randomness and speed of moving the binoculars around he spots the Balloon of DOOM]

Carmine: That’s it! He’s got half of it in the water.
Lee: We’re on top of him, I can feel it.
Amanda: I’ll radio Francine, and tell her they’re on the way.
Lee: No , we’ve got a problem (Lee hands binoculars to Amanda) [CINDY: She sees dozens of Red Balloons of DOOM floating down the stream).
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_24273606940
Carmine: We can’t take the chance of missing one of them.
Amanda: Okay. Well, then we’ll just have to stop Miller before he gets the yellow ones in.
Carmine: They have to be 23 minutes apart so they don’t set the alarms off.
CINDY: why 23 minutes? I am so confused!]
[Honestly, I’m  not confused.. because I just don’t care enough. rofl! Okay, I will try and care for Cindy’s sake.. Ummm Carmine has all this down to such a fine art he has determined 23 minutes is the ideal.. not 20 not 25…. 23. Okay?!  And if they simply must be 23 minutes apart and it’s all so precise, why is everyone worrying so much about stopping all the balloons?! I mean all they have to do is distract or delay Miller for a minute and it will all be pointless no?! Like.. Hey Miller – your fly is undone! Or.. Hey Miller, are you Australian? or British? Or just a really lousy actor?! Or the old.. point and say ‘ What’s that behind you?’! meh. ]
Lee: All right, put your clock on it. That’s how much time we have to find Miller.
[Everyone got their clock on it?!]

(they get in the wagoneer and zoom off. Cut to Miller looking at his watch counting up to 23 minutes. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_24478144811
He walks over to his truck filled with Yellow Balloons of DOOM and starts transferring them. The two striped containers falls out of his truck and he kicks them aside) 

If they have to be 23 minutes apart, why do we see Miller looking at his watch with 22 minutes left and then getting the yellow balloons out? Aie….

Okay this is tedious.. I’m going to try the twitter version of this action finale.

Lee, Amanda and Carmine hunt for Miller. Billy alerts the President. Francine and co find the red  balloons.. the trio search for the yellow balloons and Miller. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_25319652986
Lee and Miller shoot it out, Lee bursts a bunch of yellow balloons. Miller flees.
[CINDY: Miller’s gun: BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! (yes, that is right, TEN or maybe even TWELVE shots in quick succession. Truly, this guy is a master]
[Kudos for your dedication Cindy! sorry I’ve cut short this finale I just couldn’t take it anymore!!! However, comments like this got me through! Hopefully this will help others too!
One cute little catch: When Amanda stops her car, and Lee and Amanda get out and run toward the water – Amanda tells Carmine to….. * Drum Roll* – Stay in the car! rofl!!!!! ]

Lee and Amanda stop some more yellow balloons.
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_25727060394
Miller tries to drive at them. Lee tells Amanda to get back while lookin good, really really good. 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_25824491158
He shoots and Miller – goes big boom boom sizzle and fry. Miller the killer is no more filler!
[CINDY: (second one get passes as Miller’s truck rolls up –Pity none of Lee’s bullets took out the tires. I bet he could have if his handgun had ten bullets in it)
(Truck conveniently snags on a bush, flips over and explodes off screen.) ] [The bush was on the side of the good guys!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26091758425
Cue the reassuring moment between Lee and Amanda..
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26113446780
Amanda turns away from the wreck so she doesn’t have to watch Miller burn.
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_26135135135
The scene ends there.
As far as SMK action finales go, this one was pretty blah. Except that Lee looked oh sooo good!

Well, I’m going to pause here and we’ll finish up with the tag in the final post. Thanks everyone for your patience as I get these out at a snail’s pace! Can’t wait to hear from ya!!!
