  1. Past hour
  2. S10.E19: Life Is a Cabaret

    I don’t think I understand cabaret. You talk to the audience and tell only mildly amusing anecdotes. And change outfits 17 times. And in Lu’s case, sing two horrible songs, which are horrible in two ways: horrible lyrics and horrible melodies.
  3. S09.E13: Just For The Halibut

    I was sorry to see SJ go. He was one of the few I liked. I also like Farhan and Ashley although I doubt that she can last much longer. The editing made it look like she was running around frantically with her gnocchi dough still in her piping bag when Gordon started counting down the time left so I wondered how she achieved perfection in 15 seconds. I'd like to try filleting a halibut. It doesn't look like it would be that hard if you had a very sharp knife held at the proper angle (and no one screaming at you).
  4. Yes, and truthfully, ordering him water was the only thing she did that seemed dominating. It could have been taken out of context, like her husband might only drink water and was complaining on the way there about being thirsty, or whatever. My husband always drinks unsweetened ice tea when we go out, so if I'm ordering for me, I do it for him too. It's not necessarily controlling behavior. The show seemed intent to make it LOOK that way, though! I think it's the other way around - Amber's uncertainty is part of why she's friends with someone as overbearing as Zacchia.
  5. Yeah, I didn't see a gynocologist until I went to college and got birth control from the student health center. My (Baptist) mother was big into denial about anything I might've been doing with my boyfriend of 1.5 years in junior and senior year of high school.
  6. S02.E02: Part II

    Yeah, I thought the woman with the almost shaved head resembled Marin more than Vera. She would but I don't think she saw the woman with the necklace.
  7. S10.E19: Life Is a Cabaret

    Tinsley could develop a whole line of pillows based on RHoNY. Should could have ones made for the cast to commemorate their Colombia trip embroidered with "Shit Happens In Cartagena". So many possibilities.
  8. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    To the agent from Bakersfield: Who the heck are you hiring to build a pool for $7500?!? You're lucky if that buys you a spa, never mind a pool! You are doing your clients an injustice by totally misleading them on the cost of building a pool.
  9. S01.E06: Cherry

    Not every cheerleader is necessarily a flyer. It’s the tiniest girls who are usually the designated flyers on the squad. The other girls are the bases (the ones who stay on the ground). There are also high school squads that mostly do poms and dancing without stunting.
  10. Nah, that's a cookie sheet.
  11. When Lu drinks water her liver is surprised, but to be fair at least she's a happy drunk. Lu was calling the exact time Doris was turning nasty. I don't think she meant it in a judgmental way. I think she meant it in a "I know Dorinda really well and ... " way. All she was saying was that Doris is predictable. But then again, I don't happen to hold the pc belief that judging is wrong. It's why we were given brains.
  12. Season 20: Live Feed Discussion

    How sad does HOH room feel watching the downstairs crew have fun making granola with chocolate cake and chocolate ice cream. Then all eat from the same pan. Sam walks in and partakes. Oh, Hay could not take it anymore and came downstairs. And then the party broke up.
  13. Sounds like the same business plan as the SSC. Their competitor too. Both not really working.
  14. S04.E02: Breathe

    Of the 3 characters that make the jump from BB to BCS, we first see the backstories of Saul(Jimmy) and Mike in this show, but the backstory of Gus was detailed in BB. I guess that's why I brought up the spoiler issue, although I fully agree that it's unreasonable to expect a spin-off show forum to be spoiler-free 5 years after its parent show ended. If you really haven't seen BB, you should. Excellent writing, a coherent story-arc over all 6 seasons, the best cast imaginable and the craftsmanship in each episode (editing, directing, cinematography, music score, etc.) was amazing.
  15. I borrowed the "Justice League" movie and watched it tonight, and I think "Once" has ruined me for hope speeches about darkness and light. The movie did end with one on voiceover and it was hard not to roll my eyes without even hearing what it was saying. I had read a bunch of critic reviews of "Justice League" when it first came out, and I actually didn't find the movie that bad, with the exception of the boring first 20 minutes or so. I thought it was much more entertaining than "Batman vs. Superman". They finally injected some humor. I read one review which said DC crossovers were inferior because they didn't have movies for each character before their team-up, since this movie introduced The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman, in addition to all the other subplots involving Batman, Wonder Woman, Lois Lane, resurrecting Superman and the villain. In some ways, I do agree it's better for each character to have a movie first. In some ways, I agree, since I couldn't understand why Aquaman was so grumpy without some explanation (he seemed more like a merman). But as comic relief, I was fine without much background about The Flash and what we got about Cyborg was enough to carry his brief arc in the movie. I also liked the conversations Wonder Woman and Batman had with each other. It was impossible to get into the mind of Batman in "Superman vs. Batman" but I felt just through conversation what was driving this Batman and why he was so weary. Once the team started working together, I thought it was still relatively fun to watch. That's the lost potential from "Once"... just having a bunch of Disney or fairytale or folk or classic novels together, would have fun even if they weren't changed or adapted. Sometimes, the fact that some of the familiar characters in "Once" were so different (sometimes completely opposite) to their fairytale/Disney/classic novel origins that the mash-ups actually became LESS fun because it was hard to buy that it was actually Jasmine, or The Count of Monte Cristo, or Dorothy, or Tiana, or whoever, even if they dressed like that character.
  16. In the Media: The Riverdale Gazette

    I didn’t know about any of this about Dawson’s creek. I knew Joshua and Katie dated by didn’t know she didn’t both. Everyone from that show seems to have grow. Up though, they all did that ew cover back in April and all seemed friendly enough. Granted they’re all grown up now. I was a baby when Dawson’s creek was on, I watchches by didn’t know much of backstage drama. Honestly I don’t know much about cast and to show drama to tell you the truth. I do however know one tree hill had its drama. Seriously that show was a hot mess with all its backstage drama. And I feel like gossip girl had a little bit of drama here and there but it was kind of quiet drama where it didn’t come out too often and most of it was that the cast wasn’t the best of friends, it wasn’t that they didn’t like each other but they were mostly all ambivalent towards each other and all off doing their own thing. The Riverdale cast genuinely seems to enjoy hanging out and doing things together a lot. Which is great. That’s not always the case.
  17. Love is an All Episodes Thread

    I think he had a right to be upset. His behavior, though, was over the top. Silent treatment, then guilt tripping her and using his friends' rapes as an excuse was too much. Him calling her repeatedly was also too much. Referring to it as "showing love" doesn't make it any less obnoxious. My issue with Yasir isn't his lack of funds. It's his shitty attitude, haughtiness, and sense of entitlement. Nuri twists herself in knots to appease him. Once again she was crying over him. How many times has it been? She was right when she said "Love shouldn't be this hard." I really did not appreciate the show using the molestation storyline as a way gloss over all of Yasir's previous actions. It was manipulative.
  18. Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    There's a commercial that says you should tell your doctor if you are allergic to X drug "or any of its ingredients." That one always makes me yell at the TV. No patient is going to know all of the ingredients in a drug. It's not possible.
  19. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Bakersfield: They sure we’re asking for a lot for the budget they had. The two sons looked old enough to be moving out pretty soon unless they were going to college locally.
  20. Small Talk: Out of Genoa

    Even A Strip Club Joined This Hilarious Sign War With Chick-Fil-A
  21. Gary: The original Belden Lineman

    Who is Jesse?
  22. S09.E13: Just For The Halibut

    I got inside in time for the final challenge. Dog is in dog jail, in his crate. I left water for the fawn, will check at daylight tomorrow.
  23. Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Wait, wait, wait. Disregarding our regional names for fries, home fries, hashbrowns, etc, her RECIPE says to put on a cookie sheet and BAKE in the OVEN. BUT her photo shows her cooking them in a SKILLET on the STOVE with a melted spatula. So which one Jill. Sorry, I somehow started channeling Stormy Jill there.
  24. Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

    I am sorry. But Mariah is not cute here.
