  1. S37: Natalia Azoqa

    The quote is from Jeff Probst and I have to disagree with his opinion that Natalia was a good player or with his definition of a brilliant human. Telling people to shut up would a fatal flaw in any social game and she was abrasive in other ways, as well. I also hate the expression, "doesn't suffer fools," which is usually used as an excuse for people who are unkind to anyone who they think isn't as smart as they are.
  2. S03.E04: Vietnam

    I get that the whole premise of, "This is Us," is that what happens in our past shapes who we are today, but I still had trouble getting caught up in the episode, probably because, last year, I watched all 80 hours of the Ken Burns documentary about Vietnam and used up most of my anger at that time. I'm proud to say I got pregnant in 1967 to keep my young husband out of Vietnam. Even then we knew that the lives of thousands of young men were being sacrificed to a lost cause all for the sake of the political careers of rich powerful men like JFK and LBJ.
  3. S37.E04 Time to Bring Out the Charmpocalypse

    I will say this, I'd rather see someone angry in the moment than hear another rendition of, "I'm so proud of myself for how I played the game," when they have clearly been terrible at it. I'm amazed that people keep following Natalie's orders. When someone starts looking over my shoulder, micromanaging me I go all meek and submissive and slouch away, saying, "Oh, you'd better do it. I can tell you know lots more about it than I do." The Natalie types always look so surprised, standing there holding the spatula or the Xerox printer ink.
  4. S04.E03: Episode 3

    I said the low cut clothes, "make her look like a loose woman." Look like being the operative words. If she actually was a loose woman like the one George had around in season one, the clothing choices of the costume department would have been appropriate and I wouldn't be complaining about them. It's the very fact that she is a respectable woman that makes the dresses inappropriate. I was not being judgmental of the character known as Demelza, (and lets try to remember that she is a character, not a real person) but rather critical of the choice of revealing costumes for her to wear during the day. choices made by the costume department not the character or the actress. Only because I think such clothes were reserved for the evening at that time. Did I mean "loose woman" in the vernacular of the time. Of course. I would have thought that went without saying since we are discussing the mores of that time, but I'll say it one more time. I do not think Demelza is a sex worker. My comment followed several comments saying they didn't think a woman of Demelza's class would be wearing her hair flowing free all the time and I agree with that. Is it judgmental of Demelza to question the decisions of the show's hair and make up department? I certainly don't think so, but then some people are mighty eager to call others names like "judgmental."
  5. S04.E03: Episode 3

    Look at her in number 23 of that top link. In season one Demelza was almost completely flat chested and I thought that was part of her slender, natural beauty. Then a new season came along and she had obviously had surgery. Okay, fine, her choice. But since then it seems either she or the show has been determined to get their money's worth and there she is, helping the miners in the cold wind, or slaving around her own house, while wearing tight, push-up corsets and very low cut dresses that would have only been worn as evening wear. Elizabeth and Caroline don't have their boobs in everyone's face on a daily basis, why does Demelza? That plus the wild hair make her look like a loose woman.
  6. S03.E05: Toby

    Oh gosh, I didn't have the sound on and just Toby's face was gut wrenching.
  7. S37.E03 I Am Goliath Strong

    YES! It was Tyson talking to Coach! Thank you! I'm glad some of it really happened.
  8. S37.E03 I Am Goliath Strong

    Sorry. I have quite a few memories of things that never happened. Now, if one of you who still has a reliable brain would tell me who that was telling Philip not to wear the feather in his head to tribal, I'll appreciate it. Was it Boston Rob?
  9. S04.E10: Winner

    Me, too. The first time we saw him on BB, my jaw dropped with surprised delight. I can still hear him shouting down the hall, "Where's my masterbater?"
  10. S37.E03 I Am Goliath Strong

    Say what you will about softball, and league ball is not the same as a picnic game, I still think if you can swing a bat and shuffle to first base, you can weave a frond or stir a rice pot. Everyone said Natalie didn't lift a finger to help around camp and she claimed she couldn't because she was too elderly and unfit. I thought she must have two knee replacements or COPD. Exactly, and that puts him way ahead of Natalie for me. In a tribe full of braggarts like Angelina a person who actually does something makes a nice contrast to those who just talk about how great they are.
  11. S03.E03 Katie Girls

    Let's not leave out the enormous number of babies being brought into the world with their fathers already out of the picture. Those baby daddies may not be dead, but if they're only going to be a support check in the mail and a quick visit on Father's Day to pick up a gift, they might as well be. If Toby and Kate, together in the home give that baby a good ten year start, it will be more than a lot of kids get today.

    I still like him, but, as I think it is with Kim now, I have moments when I'm ashamed of myself for liking him. The Jimmy I fell for, and what made me love the show so much, was the one who was a good brother, a devoted boyfriend to Kim, and an excellent elder-law attorney. That guy in the white suit saying, "I dress like Matlock, but I look like a young Paul Newman." I even agreed about the looks thing. I may be the only one who thinks Jimmy is an equal with Kim on the attractiveness scale, although he has recently been hit pretty hard with the age stick.

    I have to defend Philip a little. I always saw him as delusional, but in a rather sweet, little boy playing pretend way, just as I saw Coach. Watching those two work together and try to help each other was one of my favorite seasons. In contrast, Natalie has a smug meanness to her delusions of grandeur that I don't find endearing at all. I appreciate the real look too, but we real people should all be aware that no one wants to look at our bare thighs bouncing around. I especially loved his remark about Natalie, "She's incompetent and over-confident." An interesting comment considering in the first episode she said she wasn't fit enough to help with the shelter. Hmmm.
  14. S37: Natalie Cole

    She sure is interesting to watch. After her showdown with Jeremy I'm wondering if her strategy is to infuriate other people into revealing their worst side.
  15. S04.E10: Winner

    In vito veritas. At the very least Jimmy was revealing his long term dream at a moment when he should have just been saying, "Wow, Chuck, can you believe I'm a lawyer?"
