  1. S02.E18: The Wedding

    Yes, what a strange tactic. Especially after a sophomore slump. Oh well. I assume this thread will be open for those of us who would like to discuss. Goodness knows, there's more than plenty to discuss. Madison and Kevin - that looked great until Kevin looked uninterested. And I knew something better must be coming. Beth's "baby cousin" is crazy beautiful. In all the ways that matter. It has been teased that a main character becomes ill. I don't think it's Toby (please don't put Kate through another major loss again). Why would they show us the real things happening a year from now if they still want us to watch? Yes, hypocrite here - because I am delighted to see Kevin and Beth's wonderful cousin together on that plane. Those endearing, caring and real looks and the real kisses. I don't know why they're going to Vietnam, but it looks like they're not going as just friends. Fuck off Deja.
  2. S09.E16: The Crying Game

    I know, right? They've done it before with a new episode of The Middle. Same lame excuses. Worst station ever. I just watched it on the time shift feature on my TV. IMO you didn't miss much. I would recommend seeing it though, because we are fans of The Middle, this was a new episode, and this is the final season. That teacher is horrible. She shouldn't be teaching. Even if she saw Brick licking her car, she should take that up through the right avenues other than taking it out on him. The word is unprofessional. What teacher keeps a pull down some student drew on seven years ago? Loser. And wasn't it predictable when she had no idea who Sue was? I for one was fully expecting that. Mike wasn't nice or gracious to the quarry guys, just wanting to push them out of the way on his way out. Not a very nice episode, I didn't like it much. I have one take away from it, though: I would really like a twisty pretzel.
  3. S09.E15: Toasted

    I saw it as completely unnecessary for them to explain that Sue's friends were out of town for her 21st birthday, implying they were skipping it entirely. I thought it would have made much more sense for Sue to just say something like "it's just Mom and me tonight - I'm celebrating with my friends on the weekend". I remember for my 21st birthday (what I do remember of it lol) that my friends were not at the celebration with my family and my family was not at the party with my friends. I see it as completely normal for a 21 year old to have separate birthday celebrations. Agreed. It seems they could have come up with something much better than taking a page out of Dina Lohan's playbook. Lazy. And not funny at all. LOL true! Yes indeed, especially if this rare display of such purposeful rancor and hostility was Sean's idea of "fighting" for Sue ;)
  4. S02.E15: The Car

    Mandy and Milo hit it out of the park. Again. I didn't miss the adult kids. I think we got the story of the tree. It was the closest one to a pay phone ;). Anne was Dr. K's kind neighbour who cared about him. I cried (through this entire episode actually) when he introduced her to Rebecca "this is my wife, Anne". I think this episode showed they were all in a horrible state of shock. I don't think Kevin was purposefully left out of hugs; rather, he kept his distance as he saw fit at the time, although none were in any shape to be held accountable for their actions. I was waiting for the mention of the child they lost. And we got that from Dr. K. Their loss of Kyle is something that has been touched upon but not explored. I for one would welcome more Kyle. I have been dreading this time in the series even though I always knew it was coming. Yes, we got answers, but about certain things, I think I was okay not asking questions.
  5. S02.E14: Super Bowl Sunday

    Ugh. Horrible episode. I actually did see it coming with Tess. And I tried to care but I didn't. Any flashbacks post fire will be without Jack and I'm just not so sure I will care about these characters any more. Deja, no thanks.
  6. S02.E13: That'll Be the Day

    I didn't like that.
  7. S09.E13: Mommapalooza

    Hmm, I thought $40 was an odd amount to put in a birthday card for a 21 year old daughter/son. In Meet the Parents (repeated tonight), Frankie told Mike (when Mike was jealous of Bennett and said maybe Bennett was given all of it by Dad), that Tam-Tam told Frankie that Bennett did it all on his own, starting with just... $40. Cute and fun :)

  9. S09.E13: Mommapalooza

    That's possible, but I think we said goodbye to him tonight. As for Sue - nah, Sue doesn't need him now. Sue wasn't the one showing up at senior's bingo "soliciting" (lol). When he talked to Frankie there, he pointed out that when he asked how she was doing, she told him how everyone else was doing. Frankie was the one who needed him and I'm glad he was there for her. I laughed at the exchange between Rev Tim Tom and Sue though - he knows she's all grown up now, a college girl. I don't think they need to write his passing into the show. I'm sure it's possible they will, but I don't think it is needed. They did acknowledge Jerry's time on the show, tonight. He got his farewell moment. They recognized his time on the show and paid homage to him. For a character who appeared in barely a handful of episodes over nine seasons, I think they did right by his portrayer. I think we said goodbye to Tag tonight. The character of Tag lives on, we just won't be seeing him. As for Marsha Mason, I think we will get to see her again to say goodbye to Pat. I wasn't surprised at all, as the past few years have had him leading up to this, ie. working during college and not going to his parents for money. We have seen a lot of proof of Axl wanting to do it on his own.

    Is anyone else thinking that Kate's behaviour at the mall might have (in Kate's eyes) made them forget the batteries for the smoke detectors and that's why she has said Jack died because of her? We already know their house burned down and I don't think they would go so far as to have Jack die in the fire saving Kate. Or would they? Inasmuch as Randall has bugged me this season, tonight looked to me like Kevin isn't the only Pearson brother Beth is unsupportive of. I found her "I need you in the real world" knock such an insult. He's been the stay at home parent and from much experience in that field, I can say with confidence that there's not a whole lot more "real world" than that. It's not like he hasn't been there for her and their daughters. I didn't find Randall's search for "Lady" compelling at all - actually that bored me. But Randall has been supportive of Beth and he just needed a little more time and she should have trusted that. So Beth, if Randall won't say it, I will say it on his behalf - I call marriage. I liked Miguel being protective of Rebecca but I also understood Kevin's need to spend some time with her alone. Miguel should respect that. My new favorite relationship of the whole show? Kate and Madison :).
  13. S02.E11: The Fifth Wheel

    Pressure or no pressure, Beth is an adult and made her decision to go. If she truly didn't want to go, and knew she couldn't be supportive of Kevin and his efforts to become well, then she had no business being there. I could see Miguel and Toby mistakenly thinking their presence was required, but Beth would certainly know that the presence of anyone harbouring ill will toward the patient is never required. Based on her reaction when asked to leave, she was pissed she couldn't stay to get her digs in and make her negative feelings known, and seemed to try her best to do that on her way out anyway. That makes it more about herself than the reason she knew she was there - to support Kevin in his recovery.
  14. S09.E12: The Other Man

    To me it's less about who is capable of fending for themselves where meals are concerned and more about simple consideration. The living arrangement in that house is not that of shared accommodation by a group of strangers. Frankie expected some consideration and she's not wrong. Although when she was going off on them, she wasn't considering Brick, who is another family member living in that house. I don't care if he is capable of fending for himself, I would still think consideration for other people is what is important. They claim to love each other.* I could be wrong but I seem to recall Frankie entering the house at dinnertime more than once over the years with a bag of fast food - for herself. I guess Frankie and Mike really meant it when they declared themselves finished with parenting when Brick was beginning eighth grade.** Maybe that's the joke - Brick turned out a better person without them. * Haven't we been reminded of that more often than not with the end of episode narration? The gist of which is usually something like - "Oh well we're a madcap family all right and we struggle with more than our fair share of calamities but at the end of the day gosh darn it we are a family and we love each other". ** I know it's The Middle but I always found it unsettling - not only their neglect and ignoring of, but also declaring themselves done with parenting a minor child of theirs.
  15. S02.E11: The Fifth Wheel

    I felt she went out of her way to be a bitch to him tonight. The last thing anyone needs when making an effort to be well is someone there just to show their contempt and non support. She had the choice to stay home but instead went there just so she could give him her stinkface from the start and stink comments when she realized she was being asked to leave. It's all about her. She had no business being there. You're not the only one. He will have to make amends and answer to his behaviour. I don't believe we've seen the last of Kevin and Sophie. But he didn't "cruelly flush it". At the risk of sounding like I'm excusing Kevin's behaviour, I'm really not. I'm just saying that Kevin's actions are that of a drug addict, very different than if he were not a drug addict. It's also possible he ended things with her (the way he did it was regretful and I think he knows that) because he knew he was in no shape at the time to continue any kind of a meaningful relationship.
