  1. Here's my guess about the Kid's "touch". It unlocks and enhances whatever seeds are already within that person so in that respect he is maybe more like a catalyst than straight up Evil with an evil agenda. So the bad prison cellmate who has a "cancerous" personality is abruptly riddled with real cancer. The poor, well-meaning guard was already depressed as hell about conditions and his inability to effect any change so the touch set off violent urges that would normally not have gone beyond the realm of private dark fantasy. Maybe devil boy identifies as neither good nor evil but is simply a mindless force contained in a human body.
  2. Season Two : All Episodes Talk

    I can add some insight here. Just borrowed the book on interlibrary loan because I didn't want to buy it. The story is very specific about a lot of 70s up and coming comics who hung out and worked together at The Comedy Store (Mitzi Shore is the real woman's name) and the Improv. The characters in the show are definitely invented and composite types more than anything else. The book spends a lot of time describing how the comedy scene migrated from NYC to LA due to the Tonight Show relocating there. Tells a few personal tales about the various comedians, and in the last part digs into the strike and the founding of a comedians' union over several chapters. There is a suicide late in the book. I won't say more in case you decide to read it but no it isn't Freddy Prinze although he is mentioned too.
  3. S03.E07: Low Man

    Just looking forward to all the characters ending up dead or in prison at this point. There is no redeemable person in the entire case and that includes J, who i won't cut slack just because he's young. After those two dumped the dementia lady off at a bus stop a few episodes ago, my last hope for some spark of a soul was extinguished.
  4. S02.E11: Holly 2018.06.27

    THANK YOU! It drove me batshit that she went straight to the impossible--ramming the door with the car--before trying every other option to open the door. Locks, keys, de-icing with hot water, finding an ax or sledgehammer and battering it down,. Anything but that ridiculous ramming. Which I know was meant to represent her inner turmoil finally raging out but still. And this: I hope you're being sarcastic about the latter half of the sentence. Of course you can drive without a carseat. A law and reality are two entirely different things. Hide baby on the floor wrapped in a blanket or whatever it takes to get across the border into Canada. This entire season has been a buildup to what I imagine will be an eventual revolution. I keep waiting, thinking every week that things are finally going to start to happen. But they don't. Ready now for June's escape to Canada and the planning of an invasion/rescue squad.
  5. S02.E10: The Passenger

    IMO the show became too convoluted for its own good. This felt like an ending to me so I'm going to pretend it is and delete from DVR.
  6. S02.E03: Russian Navy

    Absofrickinlutely. I have no doubts about that. My recording cut out a few seconds before the end with Desna and Gregory cooing at each other on the phone. I was very certain the pull back shot would be of creepy Dr. Greg prepping one of those young girls for some surgery or maybe checking the state of her virginity prior to selling her, but I guess that would have been a horrifying step too far even for this crazy show. I'm sure we're going to revisit the topic of those three "saved" orphans. Me no likey.
  7. S02.E09: Picasso: Chapter Nine 2018.06.12

    Ms Lark, thanks for the share about the subject of the upcoming season, now THAT's one I'll be very interested in. I was really glad to see the last of Picasso. What a self-involved ass!
  8. S02.E08: Women's Work 2018.06.06

    Ok, we've been shown again and again all the horrors of Gilead. I'm ready to move forward into the revolt part of the story. Any time now. Getting tired of waiting for some plan to be laid out and steps made toward implementing it.
  9. S02.E13: Bye

    More than odd, ridiculous! He would have been unconscious and maybe brain damaged after having his head beat against porcelain. I was completely taken out of the scene by the sheer unbelievablitly of it. And his scars being neatly covered by a hat? There would be bruising spreading all over his face if he even survived HAVING HIS HEAD HIT REPEATEDLY AGAINST PORCELAIN!!! Not to mention raping by mop handle. No walking normally for a long time after that and probably internal injuries that would require surgery. All so stupidly written just for drama's sake. They could've cut back severely on what was done to him and still made it be the catalyst to set off this ticking time bomb of fury. Also, I could hardly watch with the group hug for Clay at the dance. Soooo cheesy to me. Guess I'm heartless. Tony the 30-year-old high school junior LOL! Well, I must have liked the show well enough because it certainly kept me watching, all stupidity in plot and character actions aside.
  10. S02.E10: Smile, Bitches!

    Thought it was crazy Sheri went undercover at the clubhouse without anyone standing by for her to call on if things went bad. In fact, it seemed she didn't even tell the two guys what her plan was at all, simply got up from the booth and scurried off. Just more dumb illogic from the show writers. Any normal, sane person would have her friends ready to back her up. I have to say for someone as supposedly "friendless and alone" as everyone keeps saying Hannah was, she sure had a buttload of friends. Really quite a lot.
  11. Season Two : All Episodes Talk

    this is one of the few shows on my dvr that I watch right away, while others drift down toward the bottom of the list. Don't know why its so unpopular. I'm very invested in the characters, even the (many) unlikable ones. Even though I detest the cheating story line, my heart still bled for blonde girlfriend (I'm terrible at names) when she was clearly going to bomb her interview for SNL following being outed as a cheater. Yet another opportunity for her to get ahead snatched away from her. This time a disaster of her own making. Also enjoying Clark Duke's story of achieving TV success as a punchline rather than for his stand-up. Likely it will not be renewed so I hope they wrap it up sufficiently.
  12. S02.E09: North of the Border

    See, I have a real problem with people who can't just say "no" to other people. ie. when Al let himself be dragged all over town by his barber, although, granted, he needed the rest of his hair cut. I think many, many people are too afraid to flat out refuse a request and then not deviate from their stand. It's a personal peeve of mine. If you continually make a doormat of yourself, others will wipe their feet. Tracy needs to be told to leave. Period.

    Did anyone else finally take the plunge and remove this show from recording on DVR? I actually stopped it in the middle of Rick and Michonne's final speech. I'm truly quitting now. And I had already removed FtWD. Although, perhaps, maybe just maybe, I'll use On Demand to catch the opener because Garrett Dillahunt! He tried to kill Kim Dickens' character Joanie on Deadwood, maybe he can succeed this time!
  14. S01.E05: We've All Got Our Junk

    THIs, this, this! Everyone knows no one EVER touches a conductor's baton. It's unpardonably rude. Lou is the sort of guy who thinks he can do anything and apologize later. He's just the sort who would push himself on a date and then claim he didn't know she wasn't into it, so sorry! He's a real butt crack in every way. It would be a real magic trick if they can get me to like him now. I'm all for dislikeable characters having a great character arc that brings them from douche to hero, but I get the feeling the writers/creator don't even realize how nasty they've written Lou. ETA, it would help if this actor was doing it for me. He is not. I don't feel warmth, charm, soul, underneath those supposedly expressive eyes. Nope. Not even a little. He is not selling the character of Lou.
  15. S01.E07: Special Sauce

    BEcause I love the actresses I will put up with a lot, but they'd sure sell me the idea of their need better if they didn't waste money the moment they got it. I hate the idea of people throwing away cash on dumb things instead of saving for the future. They don't know this is going to last. it's like music or movie stars who think they're going to be rich and famous forever. How many stores are in their area that they believe they can carry on their return scam for very long? And who would think it a good idea to have twenty-some strangers involved? That's just nuts (ahem, I mean poor writing). I think all of this will be very difficult for the writers to sustain for long. I predict it will get even more outlandish beyond what I can bear. If the trio of actresses weren't some of my favs and so good at selling it, I would not be hanging on.
