The Great Global Pros Watch: Lawson's Last Stand
Late, but with a good reason. ;)

I've been with friends all day, and now A and I are ready to watch pros. Whoopie!

* Okay crazy dude breaks out of a sanitarium.
* Cowley is having a meet with someone about the crazy dude. He is very protective
of the crazy dude's wife.
* Ah! The lads are now in on it. :D
* Ooh! Boots and shoulder harnesses. *fans self*
* LOL at Cowley's huge glasses.
Thank you, Ray, for the fluffier, longer curls.
* Lads are looking good in the car discussing Lawson's military history.
* Food through a goose? Hee!
* Lawson really can walk!
* The Investigation goes to the nut house sanitarium.
* The doctor didn't know his history?
* Ummm. Boots and tight jeans.
* I like Lawson's uniform.
* Palace guards?
* Okay. The scene in the pub is embarrassing.
* The family thinks he's still in Germany.
* Back to the lads. :) LOL at call to Cowley.
* 4.5 really got it wrong this time!
* Idiotic behavior of the bank teller!
* OMG. Look at Doyle lounging. Check out the bracelet. A. says it's an
anniversary pressie from Bodie. :D
* Operation Britannica? Hmmm...
* OOh! The light in the Brigadier's office looks so good on Ray.
* C 29 nerve gas. O o.
* Kaboom! Bam! Shriek! Aoogah! Aoogah! Aoogah!
* OOh! Bodie in black leather!
* Ooh! Doyle brings a beverage for Bodie. All Hell has broken loose, but Doyle is
taking care of his partner. :)
* Time to heft the dangerous gas canister.
* Hmm. Looks like Lawson is setting up a swing set.
* Interesting demands. On the hour, every hour. Forever.
* Nice jeans, Ray!
* Even Bodie's grey leather looks okay with the grey shirt.
* Ah! Bodie sees a blind spot.
* OOh! The danger of the plan for the lads!
* Who was driving the tank? Hmm.
* You're out of breath 3.7
* Soft, you might say. No, Bodie. You are a delightfully hard man. :)
* Not a favorite ep, but it had it's moments.

I quite enjoy this episode. Lawson is marvellously batty and played straight by the actor, so that cringe inducing pub scene works well in establishing his character.

And you have to love Bodie and his blind spot... Thanks for the rundown!

I rather like this episode in that this is one of the few villains where I actually approve of what he's trying to do even if I abbhor his methods. No, not the National Anthem bit, the getting rid of the chemical weapons bit. *g*

The goose bit made me giggle -- it was delivered perfectly -- and nice observation on the braclet.

I found it vaguely disturbing that Tug looked so much like my step-dad did back then, but thankfully my dad at least got past it. *g*

I had the same thought when Cowley said that so cheers! *g*

Thanks, Petal! ♥

Every episode has its moments. *g* I love the closeness between the lads here, and that wonderful, intense conversation as they're planning the run/canister thing. And the tea. And, well, I'd just like more lads in it!

All Hell has broken loose, but Doyle is taking care of his partner.
Of course. See? Good episode.... *g*

I really loved the planning, too. All their conversations capture my interest, usually to the detriment of following the plot!

Whenever I watch this ep I think they were happy that season 5 would be over soon. And Bodie had one too many Swiss Rolls...

Oh, I adore the cringe-y pub scene, cos you can so feel the atmosphere of it, and you can so imagine it happening like that!

There are definitely moments in this ep, even if we don't see the lads nearly enough!

I really feel that most of the time plots just get in the way of enjoying watching B and D. Hee!

'Who was driving the tank?' Sorry to be an anorak, but on Dave Matthews' website there's an item written by the very same, all about what a fun day his Territorial Army platoon (or whatever) had filming in Battersea park.

Love all those uniforms.

And Doyle looking after Bodie , aah.

Thanks for the summary of crucial points.

LOL I asked about the driver because it looked like he was sacrificed to the nerve gas. :-(

Thanks, sweetie! Nice wrap up. I happen to love Doyle's jewellry so I had to do a bracelet fic. He wears gold so nicely. And Bodie agrees.

Yes, Ray looks good with the chains against his gorgeous skin. :) I'm trying to remember the fic. Hmmm...

You're welcome. :)

Nice review - thanks!

I love the exchange about Lawson when they are radioing Cowley. *g*

A. says it's an anniversary pressie from Bodie. But of course!

I actually do like this one. It's funny most of the time with just enough action woven in. Love the intense last part:

What if I drop it?
You don't.

That's what I call trust. Bodie knows Doyle will not drop it, bottom line. And that jump and roll from the tank is quite a sight to see too.

I fast-forwarded the pub scene. It's definitely embarrassing, and I just can't bear to see people embarrass themselves. *hangs head sheepishly*

Love the idea of that bracelet being an anniversary present. *g*

Thanks for this!

That was great review! Not a fave ep of mine, I find it a bit boring, but there are little lad bits here and there that I do enjoy.

And I definitely like the idea that Bodie gave Ray the bracelet as a pressie for their Anniversary! :D

Thanks for sharing!

Well I am rather late in reading all of these but just wanted to say thanks for the review.

The pub scene really is embarrassing isn't it, even fast forwarding it I am cringing.

Hmm. Looks like Lawson is setting up a swing set.
Thank god it wasn't just me who thought that *grin*.

No worries. I am horrible at keeping up and I tend to miss commenting on lots of things, unfortunately.

LOL about the swing set.
