  1. S03.E04: Vietnam

    My oldest uncle, on my father's side, had polio as a child. He was born in 1950 and would have been drafted for sure had the polio not left him 4F. My grandmother told me once that she had never thought she'd be grateful for the polio until that day. Fortunately his two brothers were too young to go. My maternal grandfather voluntarily joined the USMC after Korea and met my grandmother while serving at the Jordanian embassy (she was the ambassador's secretary). He would end up doing two tours in Vietnam. He never spoke of it and I thought it was because of what he'd seen. Turns out he'd been in Intelligence and per my mother was legally required to keep his mouth shut! He never saw combat (Saigon the whole time) and fascinated his kids once by bring home his unloaded rifle for them to see.
  2. S15.E04: Momma Knows Best

    Because she was tired, frightened, and hormonal. She wanted to make sure somebody competent looked at her, not just a first-year resident. I don't fault Teddy for wanting a good doctor. Where she ran into trouble was knowing that Maggie has a connection to Owen and spilling more information than was probably needed. Although again see tired, hormonal and sick. I don't know about the rest of you but when I'm running on very little sleep I can run off at the mouth with very little provocation and that's without first trimester hormones chugging through my system.
  3. Maybe we get lucky and RDJ gets us another early release date.
  4. S15.E04: Momma Knows Best

    He wasn't intended for Meredith. She and not-Ted Mosby met by accident.
  5. S15.E04: Momma Knows Best

    Maybe Link was senior resident while Jo was a student. They could have still crossed paths while she was in med school, it doesn't mean they were in the same class. As far as Maggie goes, she's in an impossible position. I 100% get that violating HIPAA is a very very very bad thing. But she is literally watching a time bomb ticking and her sisters life. Yes fine, not biological sister but at this point she and Amelia consider themselves sisters emotionally. And with every passing day The Fallout is going to get bigger. And it's not just Amelia's life that's going to blow up. It's Owens life and Betty's life and Leos life too. It's not like Maggie sought out this information. By the time she put the pieces together she was already Teddys doctor and couldn't have bowed out of treating her. She can't unring the bell of knowing this. I'm getting more and more ticked at teddy as more and more time goes by without her speaking up. It's Owens kid too. She might not be legally obligated to tell him that she's pregnant but ethically and morally she absolutely does. As she knows dang well what a terrible position she's now put Maggie in. Actions have consequences. Teddy and Owen got sloppy with birth control and now Teddy's pregnant. Maggie broke HIPAA and will now probably face a volcanic Amelia, a pissed-off Teddy and whatever sanctions Chief Karev can muster up from the hospital. Which probably won't be much all things considered. Amelia and Owen took in two kids and have committed to raising them. Which means now the blowback has to consider Leo and Betty as well. It's a huge mess and as a viewer I'm looking forward to seeing how it shakes out but as a person I would want to gouge my eyes out rather than be a participant.
  6. Now that I've had some time to think about it I've come to the conclusion that George is far kinder to Constance than she deserves. She treats him like crap. And as far as he knows, she was driving drunk with his kid in the car! And not only does he still permit her near his children, he has allowed her to keep her good reputation to her daughter. He's cut her a heck of a lot of slack. For that matter, Georgie has done her a solid as well. He kept his mouth shut not only about her DWI but that she took him to the track in the first place. I know that was something he probably found fun but still. She's not that kind to him either. I wouldn't be surprised to find out she favors Missy and Sheldon simply because Georgie is the child Mary got pregnant with out of wedlock. There by forcing her marriage to his father.
  7. Of course George cheating is ultimately a choice George makes. Neither Mary nor Meemaw forced him to do it. But as a human being I can also understand how you seek out comfort and happiness when you seem to be stuck in a situation where you're growing unhappier by the day. No, you shouldn't cheat. You should use your big boy words and make choices to extricate yourself from the situation. But I can also see how things can happen as humans.
  8. S2, E2: Under the Surface

    Fair enough. I just tend to be looking at it from the perspective of the person depending on them for rescue. If I'm down in the storm drain, then I don't care about egos I just want somebody to fish me out please.
  9. S2, E2: Under the Surface

    I'm onboard with Maya's annoyance but only in the context that she was the one equipped to make the rescue. I don't care if she feels like the second fiddle or not, in a life-or-death scenario I'd expect First Responders to be putting their patients first and their egos second. She had every right to be upset at Andy because Andy was not the one with the equipment needed. Getting ticked off that Andy is hogging the spotlight seems unprofessional.
  10. I don't like that Georgie was swept up in this. He's a kid. An authority figure took him someplace he wasn't supposed to go, got drunk and put him in the position of having to drive her home. And now his mother has banished him from the house over a situation he had *no* control over. Do we really think Mary or George would have been all sunshine and lightness if he'd called from the track to tell them Meemaw took him there or that she needed him to drive home? George has called Georgie an idiot to his face before. I would bet money the kid though he'd be in trouble anyway and he might as well have some fun.
  11. S12.E04: The Tam Turbulence

    I'm going to die laughing at the scenes of how Sheldon's life would have been if Tam had moved out there. Do we think they really reshot those or did they just manage to do a digital insert?
  12. S15.E04: Momma Knows Best

    I'm torn about Maggie. I know HIPPA is a huge, huge thing and that breaking it is a massive deal. But at the same time she's being asked to keep a huge secret that will blow up on someone she loves and with each passing day that fall out is growing. Amelia and Owen are getting more solid by the day. They are parenting the two kids together very well. As all four of them grow more stable, the more of a mess it will be when the truth comes out. Teddy is putting Maggie in a horrible position. As a doctor, Maggie professionally obligated to keep confidence even it she doesn't like but as a *person* I understand why she is struggling.
  13. Season 10 all episodes talk

    I was going to say that is not a look we've ever seen on her before unless undercover. I don't like it.
  14. S05.E01: Fresh Off the RV

    They showed the first Harry Potter book being released. It wouldn't have been a big thing at that point. No one knew Harry Potter or JK Rowling when Sorcerer's Stone came out, the big blowouts in the bookstore wouldn't have been till around the 3rd or 4th books.
  15. Season 10 all episodes talk

    Not bad. Always nice to get Agent Duchamps around, she's interesting and fits in well with the team. And Admiral Kilbride is sliding right into the Granger shoes. He's a better character in two episodes than Mosely was in an entire season. I also like that he was straight with Callen about the team having a bad rep and that he (the Admiral) was sent to shut them down but is reluctant to so since they get good results. While I'm glad to hear that Mosely is facing trouble I of course hate that Hetty is swept up in it. And we have absolute confirmation that Eric and Nell are involved and have been for some time! I'm also impressed that we got a whole episode about a super-exoskeleton and no one made any bad Iron Man jokes.
