  1. S05.E03: The End of the Tour 2018.06.19

    I think Diana will have a pragmatic reaction because she isn't as personally invested in Liza as Josh, Kelsey or Charles were and she's about a thousand times cooler than all of them. Part of me hopes Diana sees it as a bonding moment, presses a button on her desk that opens a closet full of statement necklaces and she offers one to Liza as part of a 40-something woman bonding ritual.

    I'll say if I heard my adult child had suddenly gotten involved in an organization that was run by the daughter of the founder of another bad organization she had been involved in, I would be concerned. I didn't really buy that Plumb's mom would go from thinking her daughter was in a diabolical cult to basically signing up Plumb for more sessions in the course of one meeting with Verina. She seems like she is having a lot of fun with this role. I was kind of over her by the end of the Good Wife, but I'm enjoying her again.
  3. All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    That's interesting. I read that storyline in an entirely different way. I saw the mother giving Abby signals about wanting the abortion (I believe it's found out she had tried to starve herself to cause a miscarriage), but Abby being reticent about the mother having one. I don't think the mother did regret the abortion. I thought she was kind of resigning herself to having more children because her husband was very controlling, was defiantly opposed to her having an abortion and she didn't have the ability to make it clear to him what she wanted.

    Abby has her moments in Season 6. For example, she gets way too into the business of a father and daughter (played by 5 year old Dakota Fanning) who were in an accident and the daughter has leukemia. The father tells Abby his daughter has a half-sister, but his divorce with the girl's mother poisoned the relationship. He tells Abby several times to leave the situation alone, but she doesn't and confronts the mother and daughter, and again Abby is asked to butt out. The daughter later shows up at the hospital and Abby begins taking blood from the minor daughter without consent from the mother until Weaver stops her, tells Abby that she could be failed for her rotation if she pulls something like this and orders her to butt out. Abby then calls the mom, manipulates her into giving consent and all is well. While I liked the end result, I really hated that Abby's bad behavior was retroactively justified. On a positive note, I really like Mark's storyline with his father. John Cullum is excellent and he makes the entire story work.

    Yes, I view it like the East Coast is the most stable part of Gilead, in that there are bombs and attacks, but not as an everyday occurrence, while elsewhere there's basically an open revolution in some spots, and other spots are just decimated by war or natural disaster.

    It's interesting you brought up Dave. For whatever reason, I saw on Twitter that a fan had asked Erik Palladino whether it was his choice to go or he was purposefully written out, and he said it was kind of both. And for fun, during Season 1, ER had six regulars. By Season 6, at its peak, before Lucy dies, but after Jeannie leaves, the cast has 13 regular characters.
  7. All Episodes Talk: The Big Picture

    I always find this bit of boomer myth making so interesting. Within the series, it's obviously a big event in that it helps convince Betty to end the marriage for good, and leads to SCDP. However, you look at the course of the 20th century, while the assassination is a milestone in terms of the decade, America seems to have had a number of moments where its innocence was lost and nothing was ever the same again. I mean, I would personally argue events like the Great Depression or the bombing of Pearl Harbor were much more consequential. I understand this is not that kind of debate, I just think people sometimes tend to treat the 60s as though nothing happened before and nothing happened after.

    I'd just say it isn't a competition. People are terrible to each other for all sorts of reasons. I don't view the harassment Plum gets just walking down the street to be all that realistic, but I understand that the show operates in its own very heightened reality.
  9. I think the show is based on her family, but it's not supposed to actually be their family. When Alicia's husband was asking to come back and she was saying that the girls missed him, had he even been gone a full day? I'm not really sure what to make of this show. It's not good, but it isn't terrible and I feel like once the show settles on a tone and direction, there might be something okay there.
  10. All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    With ER, I think there was a point where there was cast bloat, i.e. too many regulars with too little to do and too little development. By the end, they pared things back to just a few regulars and streamlined the stories considerably.
  11. I will never not tire of some ridiculous cold open being gobbled up by the show's credits.

    I was thinking the "nice body positivity" therapy is just the cover they use to screen participants. (And no, I have not read the book and have not read spoilers, so I have no idea if I am right or wrong on this.) A woman who they don't think will be open to the more radical aspect of things will be screened out and referred elsewhere, while a woman who they think is open will gradually be introduced to the more radical philosophy.

    Is it a secret running joke? I'm pretty sure Miriam Shor has talked a lot about Diana's statement jewelry in interviews. I took Charles' comment as him saying he would have considered giving Pauline a chance, but did not do so because of his feelings for Liza. As for the marriage note on his list, I thought he viewed it as just another Liza lie. He wasn't saying "she's damaged goods for being divorced," but he viewed it as just another thing that Liza had kept from him.

    Unless her husband has a history of cheating or has otherwise proven himself untrustworthy, I'm sure she understands the various things a cop does to gain the trust of a witness or target and doesn't really spend her time worrying about other women. I think it's much simpler. Plum's mom isn't listening to Plum, and doesn't really understand the issues that Plum is concerned about.

    I read it as Grigor taking his money from Axe, and giving it to Taylor with a warning to Axe that if and when he tried to hurt Taylor, he better not do anything that causes Grigor to lose money. I really have no idea why Taylor would even want to associate with the guy. Grigor is a loose cannon who has no qualms about killing someone to get his way. That's not a person with whom you want to do business.
