    I also got the impression it was a more spaced out thing. I think she said something along the lines of "this is where they would bring the cheerleader of the week," but I just took that as a turn of phrase, not that they literally did it once a week.

    Yeah, I think she rummaged around in the grass next to the road and found it though. If I recall correctly, she threw it away towards the end of one episode, and then the next episode started with her in the ditch looking for it. I was confused about what was going on, but I think they showed her holding it, with the screen all cracked, after she climbed out of the ditch.

    In addition to the darkness, his hand (the location of which I may or may not have paid particular attention to during that scene) was strategically placed to block the view.

    The one next to it had just been demolished.
  5. Flip or Flop Las Vegas

    I could not stand the mural in that condo. What on earth. Frankly all that guy's paintings looked hideous to me. And a giant face looming over the bed? Stop! This is the first episode of this show I've seen...I shudder to think that garish mural was her idea of a tamer design.
  6. That's how the student housing when I studied abroad in Wales in college was. One person rooms, each with their own sink. Then a separate toilet room in the hall (and yes the lack of sink in the toilet room grossed me out....how could that door handle not have been a biohazard...), and another separate room in the hall that had the shower and a bathtub. There were no sinks in the "communal" areas. They weren't old buildings, that's just how they were laid out. I guess maybe if that Antwerp place had been geared towards students and/or multiple roommates at some point, that may be why it's laid out that way.
  7. I only watched half of that episode, but the thing I couldn't stand about her was how, when she wanted to make a point, she would look over at the guy with a real serious look on her face and glare at him, then talk to him in a weird lecturing tone. It was reminiscent of the way a teacher would talk to a third grader who won't pay attention in class.
  8. There are lizards in places where it gets cold in winter, they just only really come out and move around when it's warm. The skinks with blue tails are very common in Virginia (at least the part I grew up in), for example.
  9. House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Yikes, I could not stand that Missouri woman. She was so utterly unreasonable about every little thing. She honestly believed she was going to find a house in Cape Girardeau, MO that had two kitchens right next to each other? Wtf. I think I disliked her more than any other house hunter I've seen...and that is saying something. The husband seemed like a nice, reasonable man, so for much of the episode I felt bad for him. But by the end I was so irritated at him for just letting her push him around that I was done with him too! He agrees to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars over the budget on a 5,000+ sq ft house, and then there's the ending scene where he's like "I was able to convert this room in the basement to my office" and it shows him going into what was essentially a large closet - cramped, no windows, and filled with mismatched Ikea furniture, next to the gym equipment..... Good god man, put your foot down already!!

    From the Tumblr post: Ha! I didn't realize that until reading this... I couldn't figure out who he was supposed to be. Some kind of bodyguard, business manager, family friend, or what...

    Was that Sioux Falls episode an old one they just re-labelled as "new"? The production quality on it was so bad, it was strange. When I saw it I thought it was just a really old rerun, but the DVR thought it was new. Regardless, yeah...those houses did kind of suck... I thought the one they got was the least objectionable. But the other two in particular just had zero curb appeal. That brown own on a dirt patch without so much as a bush in sight, much less a tree? Ugh. I don't like when builders raze every plant in sight to build a new neighborhood. Maybe there weren't a lot of trees to begin with, but at least plant a bush or something.

    I actually liked this episode a lot. I had been curious about what the deal with his dad was (it's been alluded to him fleeing the country, etc.), so I liked that we got some insight into that. I also liked the insight into Andrew's upbringing. Of course his crappy childhood doesn't excuse any of the monstrous things he does later, but I think you can still watch it and feel sympathy for a child stuck in the middle of it. For example, I don't think that feeling bad for teenage Andrew during that scene with his dad in the Philippines is the same as excusing his later behavior, or blaming his childhood, or ignoring that other people had worse childhoods and don't murder people.

    I don't think it's been subtle or lost in the overarching story at all. For some of those references you mentioned above, I'm not even sure how they could have been more explicit... short of having someone run on screen and yell "this is unfair!!!" Jeff's struggles relating to the military spanned across several episodes (I think? Or at least were the focus of an entire episode), for example. I think if they made it more heavy-handed, it would not only be irritating, but it would also lose the character's stories and just turn them into pawns for preaching at the viewers. Which would be a disservice not only to the show, but also to the victims whose lives the show is based on.

    I couldn't believe they got that first condo because the guy seemed to hate it. And I didn't blame him...I hated it too - it seemed so cramped, and with laundry smack in the middle of the kitchen, and windowless 2nd bedroom. Ugh, it looked uncomfortable just over the tv. And he seemed to be having the same reaction I was having. Which I found funny, since they apparently film these after they've actually chosen the house...so he was just walking around grimacing at his own condo, ha. I also got the impression they wanted far away from Utah for a reason. I found myself curious about the fact that back in Utah they had a ~3,000 sq ft house that they said they had planned to raise a family in, but in Tampa the woman wanted under 1,000 sq ft condo, downtown, one bathroom is fine, small living space fine, etc. Seemed like she/they did a 180 on the plan for a family. Hopefully it was just a change of heart, and not for some sad reason.

    DeMario, I think.
