  1. Bless her heart, she’s “ruined “ me forever, lol! I hear her voice whenever I read or hear “Dakar” too! It looks like Malika Surf Camp. I follow them on Instagram and dream of surfing in Senegal someday.
  2. The Durrells In Corfu: Fun to hang out with

    Omigosh. That final overhead shot tonight. I want to get on a plane and go to Corfu, right now. Just beautiful.
  3. S04.E07: The Poison Inside Us

    April is awful. Was anyone else wishing she would have been overcome with the fumes when she did her "heroic" dash back into the ER?
  4. S01E06: Off Radar

    Another one of those areas where we just have to suspend logic and go with the story. Like, how do the survivors not have the press hounding their every move? There should be scientists and doctors studying them constantly ( not experimenting on them like the secret black ops site). There’s just so much about the show that makes no sense at all if you apply logic.
  5. S02.E07: Trial & Error

    There were two separate incidents. He got arrested for trying to pick up a hooker( a Lane lookalike) who turned out to be an undercover cop. His savvy lawyer managed to keep him from getting into real trouble with the medical board on that one. There was an attractive middle-aged woman that he did hook up with, who turned out to be the mother(!) of his ridiculous young assistant. The assistant put them together, but Bell didn't realize she was the kid's mother. That was actually kind of funny.

    As far as the world was concerned, the plane was lost at sea with all passengers dead ( kind of like the real-life Malaysian flight that disappeared about 2 years ago, and still hasn't been found, despite a massive search that went on for some months). In fact, a plot point from a previous episode was Grace stressing because the insurance company wanted their payout (for Ben and Cal's deaths) back. I think this week was the first time we've seen the scientific community trying to come up with an explanation for just what happened to the plane. It was a minor scene, but enough to let us know that folks were working on this. I don't think it's going to be a real part of the storyline, though. As for how the passengers were chosen for the experiments, they seemed to be all the foreign nationals from the flight,whose absence was easily explained by the claim that they were all repatriated to their home countries. That's why even Vance and his crew didn't realize anything was amiss, until Michaela sent the picture of the woman at the "farm" in upstate New York that was reported to have been sent home to Norway.

    So true. There is a bit of a difference though. Ben came home to find a new family (Grace, Boyfriend, and Olive) formed in his absence, and admittedly a daughter who's completely different from the little girl he left in the airport. He doesn't really know this teenager. On the other hand, Grace is suddenly in the exact same place with the exact same little boy she thought she'd lost. She and Ben had been doing battle against their son's illness, now there's suddenly this new woman in the mix, who she really doesn't know, but who is making a lot of moves to help Cal. And Ben, who clearly trusts her. And, if what so many of us are speculating comes to pass, she's also witnessing the beginnings of THEIR new "family" (Ben, Saanvi, and Cal), bonded over their shared experience which doesn't include her. Trust me, Grace did herself no favors with me this episode. She came off as petty, insecure, and needy (" I needed you, and you weren't here for me") No Grace, he was out trying to save your son's life! And he told her as much, though he could have been more forthcoming with the details.

    Seriously. Maybe the writers can forget they ever mentioned a dangerous/abusive ex-boyfriend so we won't have to constantly wait for that shoe to drop, and we can just focus on Maddie rebuilding her life. I'm willing if they are...
  9. S01E06: Off Radar

    Seems as though Grace senses their connection and feels a bit jealous, like an outsider looking in. Not a romantic connection (yet!), but Ben, Saanvi, and Cal shared an experience that has created a bond that she isn't a part of. And now, Saanvi was instrumental in getting Cal into this cancer study/trial that seems to be helping him. It's probably hard for a mother to watch another woman be her son's hero(ine).
  10. S02.E07: Trial & Error

    I'm glad the show has taken out the criminal element (Lane, although next weeks' previews suggest that maybe we haven't seen the last of her), and just allow Bell to be another arrogant doctor. I actually smiled when he told Conrad (who was in his usual know-it-all mode) to "try talking to him like someone who's been practicing medicine about as long as you've been alive." I like this show a lot, but Conrad and Nic have a way of acting like they're the only ones in the hospital who truly know medicine, who truly care about their patients, etc. Like someone mentioned upthread, I like that this show at least gives mention to the business side of medicine. I appreciated Bell reminding Conrad that many of our medical advances come from drug trials just like this. Unfortunately, even though the show didn't state so explicitly (at least I don't think they did), it seemed to be implied that there was something shady or not quite right with this trial. I get that showing all the shades of gray may not work for the COTW format, but it can't be "Nic and Conrad are right, and everyone else is wrong" ALL the time, can it?
  11. S04.E06: Episode 6

    Seriously! Especially since for the times in which they are living, a man of Drake's class would scarcely be allowed to speak to a young woman of Morwenna's class (beyond "Yes Miss, No Miss"), let alone marry her! Maybe his sister's unusual good fortune in going from scullery maid to Lady of the Manor (an admittedly generous description of Nampara, I'll admit, but she does get to go to all the High Society parties now) has given Drake the wrong idea about his chances with Morwenna. Let it go, Drake. I hope he does leave town to start over somewhere else. He's certainly made a mess of things here.
  12. All Episodes Talk: In the Beginning...

    Okay, I’ll admit it. I’ve been working with the theory that Grace was actually the result of the Bishop’s affair with Mavis. Mae took the baby as her own for respectabilty’s sake, but resented her ever since, causing their strained relationship. So I was right about Grace being the child of an affair; looks like I missed the mark on which affair.
  13. But fraternal twins still look like siblings. These are the first twins I’ve ever seen (and admittedly, I haven’t seen all that many) that don’t even look related to each other. They don’t even look the same age. It’s just odd.
  14. The husband said that he would be working remotely. All we know about the sister is that she sold her house and quit her job to make the move.
  15. S01.E06: Unexpected

    I see Regina STILL not wanting kids, which will then become the “elephant in the room “ between them. And her mother is Next Level pushy, holy cow! Also, was anyone else confused over Maggie, a practicing psychologist, being so seemingly clueless about night terrors and how to manage them?
