  1. The Woman In White - Dastardly men prey on women

    That might make sense though I'm still missing why it matters so much to Percival. It's heavily implied that Anne's mother cheated with him, but if Anne is his illegitimate daughter tht still doesn't explain why she has to be locked away. The Fairlie brothers and their animus to Laura are weird. Why Dad made that condition and why uncle is so malevolent.
  2. S03.E08: The Worst Possible Use of Free Will

    I I love that her hair was still smoking as they continued.
  3. S04.E07: Episode 7

    I too really love watching Caroline and Dwight. Their little scene about Horace was just too charming and just too cute. I don’t know if it was the writing or the acting But I feel like what we were supposed to see was a girl with country manners and a charming Louche aristocrat. Instead, I saw Demelza acting bizarrely out of character, especially when we saw her just a couple of weeks ago slyly being all political. We have seen her reject men before, and she has been to fancy parties before. Yes they were not in London, but they were full of fancy people. And the luge aristocrat was disgusting. I can’t imagine any upper-class women finding that remotely attractive. He was not handsome enough to pull off that absolute sliminess I’m also really tired of the “can this marriage be saved” trope. Television cliche: close up on a person waking up on a pillow. Whenever you see a close up like that it’s a dead giveaway they are going to roll over to an empty bed.
  4. Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    I'm guessing this is NOT an unpopular opinion, but I am sick of shows being leeched of color to let us know it's Serious. Looking at you, Man in the High Castle. And most Le Carre adaptations. The real world is full of color. If you want to do black and white, do black and white, not this weird pseudo color thing.
  5. The Woman In White - Dastardly men prey on women

    I can never remember whether I read this or the moonstone. Must have been the moonstone because I’m so confused. I thought we saw someone being buried- now they say they’re looking for Anne. But can Anne and Laura both be alive? is Anne Percival’s child?
  6. S05.E29: Drain the Swamp

    Argh my dvd cut off before the payoff to the Instagram influencers but! Can someone tell me what happened? I gather something about Scientology?

    Really fantastic episode. Kristen Bell is an amazing actor. The TIming of her saying she would have iced tea too was perfect.
  8. S04.E06: Episode 6

    I agree, George sees Elizabeth as a prize but I think we've seen many times, and in this episode again, tht he does care for her and is miserable when she's mad and happy when she's happy. When she fainted he looked truly terrified.
  9. S04.E06: Episode 6

    Thanks for the recap of the missing scene. But I’m pretty sure that would Rosina said was that he went to her when she was widowed, not wedded. Because wedded makes no sense. I was annoyed with Morwenna but now I understand. yall it’s not that she couldn’t love s baby or marry drake with someone else’s baby. She loves her other son. its the MOTHER IN LAW. With another child they will never let her go. She’ll be in prison forever. she has a point. I hope Caroline and Dwight try again because among everything else those are such pretty people and I like them both very much. Kind and merry is an unusual combination. Demelza and Ross in London were cute. Every man throughout time has liked to see his wife naked. That rang true as did her modesty. i even like George and his reaction to the pregnancy. His one redeeming trait is he does indeed love Elizabeth.
  10. Couldn't disagree with you more. Hate, hate HATED the Americans finale. It felt EXACTLY like the HIMYM finale in that clearly the writers thought that would be the finale early on and stuck with it even though by the time we got there it made NO sense. For seasons and seasons we were told that Philip wanted to defect. Then he... doesn't. We suffered through a whole season of wheat nonsense. Stan... lets them go? What the actual fuck. I felt the finale had NOTHING to do with what I'd been watching, and was only enjoyable as a standalone thing. I hated it intensely.

    And unnecessary. It's a TV trope thing. In real life, he'd have put the cap on them and put them in a drawer. This show has gone downhill. I used to rush to watch it, now it sits on the DVR for days.

    I dont know, maybe it's because I've lived around a lot of super rich people in my life, but I totally buy they were making several mill a year and are not living anywhere near their means. I don't need a line to tell me that. I also think it will be great for Beth to be campaign manager because GETTING THINGS DONE and seeing how good she is at it will bring her CONFIDENCE back, without which she can't interview well. She hasn't gone on an interview in years, and her confidence has got to have taken a HUGE dive with that layoff right after she spent a Saturday making a proposal kick butt.
  13. I just can’t seem to figure out what’s going on, ever. I hate bleaching of color it’s one of my least favorite devices. I liked it when they were in our timeline and the color was normal. It doesn’t help that everyone speaks so quietly at hushed. I end up falling asleep if I try to watch this at night
  14. For some reason we had to do that with the books from Hebrew school but not the books from public school. Which in retrospect is even stranger because I think we owned the books from Hebrew school. I have got to be remembering this wrong. I had a big plastic briefcase for Hebrew school hilariously enough, but for regular school elementary school etc. I just carried my books. But you’re right, The Paper Bag book covers were the absolute best you could doodle on them and write on them and it was just awesome. I hope we get to see the 6 ounce Coke bottles.

    I truly think were meant to be taking things at face value here. Beth wasn’t laid off because of dementia or subtle racism or anything like that, but because she’s very expensive, and laid her off saves them a lot of money, and while they value her, they value the other person more. That’s all. Also, just about anyone who’s worked at a job that long and hasn’t had a lot of experience losing jobs in finding new ones it’s going to be depressed. My brother lost his job after 25 years suddenly, and he was so depressed he had to be medicated. He was in his early 50s and convinced he would never get another job. And he had enough money to keep his Life and his children’s life going for two years there’s no change. Well cut to two years later he’s got a job, not as much money but a good job, wife went back to work, very minimal belt tightening. He’s off any meds and is healthier. People in the arts like Kevin are MUCH more used to rejection and change than corporate people who’ve been in one job a long time. I don’t think there’s anything more to what’s going on with Beth than that. and I think working on the campaign is a GREAT idea. It’s project management and will use her skill, it’s a big change from what she did before, and because it’s so different she won’t be mentally comparing it all the time. i also tho k Kate TELLING Toby to get dressed was a positive trying: she was taking her moms advice. And guess what? It was what Toby needed. At this moment he does need boundaries and a bit of nurturing/parenting and she’s doing fine.
