  1. S04.E17: Chapter Eighty-One

    slate's thoughts on the finale and beyond: https://slate.com/culture/2018/04/how-the-jane-the-virgin-season-4-finale-should-change-how-we-watch-chapter-fifty-four.html
  2. S07.E05: Episode 5

    according to the 2015 book, the missing kennedy, the birth story is correct, and, she had a botched lobotomy (still an experimental procedure) ordered by her father.
  3. S01.E03: Clinical Trial and Error

    think i'm out. hate the idea of a triangle. and clinical trials depend on more than funding: hospitals have committees; protocols must be approved. i get that shows often sacrifice reality for drama, but this is so far out there... ETA note to self: finish watching show before posting.
  4. S01.E02: Most of all to Dream

    i'm mostly hating lou. but, i just came across this vulture review, which suggests that the second half of the season address lou's shortcomings. problem is that i'm finding his character so insufferable, i may not last that long. http://www.vulture.com/2018/03/rise-review.html#comments
  5. S01.E01: Pilot

    YES! finally a show that realizes how difficult (make that impossible) it is to read texts being typed on a phone screen! can't tell you how much information i miss, so i'm thrilled that this show enlarges the text. yes, i know, cbs's viewership skews old. finally, here's an advantage!

  7. S02.E18: The Wedding

    "I don't like that they went from an entire episode about Deja and her mom to a quick bit of dialogue between Beth and Randall about how Deja's mother gave up her parental rights in court. What was the point of taking us through Deja's mother's experiences and having us sympathize with her if she was just going to take off." don't know why the quote function is so tempermental... but, i agree. deja's mother giving up her parental rights is too big a fucking deal to be revealed in a single piece of exposition. to me it felt as though the revelation was to set up her attack on the car. but it was so compressed, jammed into an already overflowing episode. however, had they ended the deja episode with everyone in court the groundwork would have been laid for her violent reaction.

  9. S01.E01: Pilot

    the show wasn't on my radar until i read that anna devere smith was in the cast, so i tuned in. not nearly enough of her, but i like both hope davis and ben shenkman. and, unlike many here, i loved brit robertson in "life unexpected," so i'll probably stick around for a few more episodes.

    ali barthwell at the av club pretty much summed up my reaction to the pilot: https://www.avclub.com/lazy-choices-and-too-many-tragedies-lead-to-a-disappoin-1823750817

    the ny times is less than impressed, but i'll be watching anyway... https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/12/arts/television/rise-review-nbc-jason-katims.html?hpw&rref=television&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=well-region&region=bottom-well&WT.nav=bottom-well

  14. accused is the operative word here. and you're right. however, this interview took place more than a decade after he had been ACQUITTED of the murders. and since double jeopardy meant he couldn't be tried again, this interview was just a big "fuck you!"
  15. Jane the Virgin in the Media
