  1. S04.E02: I Am Ashamed

    Ok- the ending with the 4 laughing around the table and then the sitcom closing music was brilliant. Was that closing music from a specific sitcom or just generic?
  2. Yes, totally. And I hate to say it is about looks but that was a big part of it too- I kept mixing up who was supposed to be Jane and who Diana; and the actor playing Gilbert... seemed like an entirely different character. I could have overlooked none of them looking like the characters if they had captured their spirit, as you say.
  3. Watching Fire and Dew. I didn’t see the other two. Can’t help but think they casted every single actor wrong. Made me appreciate the Anne with an E casting more.
  4. This really should be disqualifying for chief. This makes him DeLuca’s boss. Not ok.
  5. I watched both seasons in a glorious week. I spent so much time with the Kim family they felt like my own family. I found this show utterly delightful, and some hamminess that bothered me a little at the beginning (Appa and Shannon and Kimchee) mellowed as I grew to love the characters. And Andrea Bang is a standout as Janet. She seemed so real to me. I can’t wait to see Season 3!

    Fastest way to turn me off... ”Because I’m an alpha, so...” wtf. If you have to state your alpha-ness you clearly are not. Is Leo on those female-hating man-first message boards? Uggggh Kendall. Please recognize your mistake next week and hope Joe gives you another chance.

    This! I felt legit bad for both Colton and Tia. There’s no reason he should have to decide immediately if he wanted to get back with Tia... EXCEPT that they are on a reality show where they have to form relationships to advance. She was absolutely right not to waste her rose on him when he was being noncommittal. If they wanted to just explore the relationship with no pressure, they shouldn’t have tried to do that on the tv show. I relate to Tia - she is a people pleaser and should have told Becca from the beginning how much she really liked Colton. Now Colton’s feelings for Becca are what is going to keep Tia and Colton apart. But I also think it is clear his feelings weren’t that strong for her. She is making a conscious decision to cut that off and not be strung along— hope she sticks to it.

    Why all the defense of Bayley? Whether he meant to or not, he killed Poussey. It is up to every person to make sure that when you are defending yourself against someone, you aren’t *also* accidentally simultaneously crushing someone else to death. I don’t think Taystee was holding out for a first degree murder charge; she just wanted it acknowledged and him to be held accountable in some way. Bayley himself wanted to be held accountable! agree that her idealism has been her downfall- thinking she could keep negotiating, thinking she could take her case to trial. These mistakes that led to her tragic ending are based on some hope in humanity that she has gradually been losing. Taystee to me remains the most relatable character (at least since Poussey’s death). I loved seeing the backstory between her and her guard friend.
  9. Seeing the trial would be super interesting. I would just like to know if they went on trial together or did one sister flip or try to blame the other. Agree- My first inclination was to wish I could google the “little Debbie murders” to get the whole story!
  10. he was making out with Annaliese in the shadows, am pretty sure!
  11. I don’t mind the new Anne, but she comes off very young/immature, unlike Meghan Follows, whose Anne seemed older and more thoughtful. If I were the show I would wait a few years before having Gilbert show any romantic interest. It seems really unrealistic in this version, just because she seems so much younger than him.
  12. The Bachelorette in the Media

    Hmm, Kaitlyn said on her podcast this week that it's not true and she took off her ring and gave it to Shawn so that Shawn can "re-propose" the real way. I guess time will tell!

    Exactly! the oldest millennials are 38 now. Not exactly a huge gap there.

    This may be dating me as an oldie, but as someone nearing Liza’s real age, “age queer” is hilarious. Brilliant. Brava, show!
  15. Can you imagine how hot and sweaty they must have been, riding camels in the desert? Then they get into a nice, refreshing, 104 degree hot tub? Probably with little camel hairs and dust floating around in it. With a nice view of a chain link fence and the pleasant smell of camel manure. You couldn’t pay me to go on that date.
