  1. They moved to an apartment in a city where Bobby got a job with a church. Memphis maybe?
  2. Season Four Discussion

    I think it must help to have television involved. I was recently contacted by a distant DNA cousin searching for his father. Through DNA he discovered his father was not his father (he suspected that) and that the man he thought might be his father wasn't. From the DNA it looks like a totally unknown third person was his father. When he contacted a first cousin he was told to stop researching her family! He is quite elderly and ill and I don't know that meeting his family is in the cards with a first cousin like that. But I've put him in contact with people who could help him fill in his tree. Unfortunately, the deceased father was only briefly married and didn't have any children, so he has no half-siblings out there.
  3. Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

    I just heard a story about LLR. When you get near the top some have been pressured to go to Mexico and get lap band surgery. They want their top people to be wearing small/medium sizes. The woman investigating LLR is Claire Suddath. She wrote this article for Bloomberg News: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2018-04-27/thousands-of-women-say-lularoe-s-legging-empire-is-a-scam I heard her on Hear and Now on NPR. You can find the interview here: http://www.wbur.org/hereandnow/2018/05/09/lularoe-leggings-lawsuits
  4. Naked and Afraid XL: season 4

    I think each team got a pot and a fire starter, each person has a blade of their choice, and they also got stuff like bows and arrows. So they are better equipped than some groups. I think they are going to need all of it.
  5. I don't think it's strange that the kids weren't at her party. Chris and Amy seem to have a group of friends they hang with, and they came to her party. Maybe the kids will throw her a different party--wouldn't the producers like two birthday parties to drag all this out?--so maybe that will be another episode. ETA: Ha! I wrote this before I actually saw the show. Now that I have watched it I have a different take on it. When I was in college I went out one New Years Eve, and came home to my parents' party still in full swing. Now these were people I had known all of my life. They were welcoming, wanted me to join the party and dance with them. I was so uncomfortable! I couldn't wait to get out of there. I was very used to these people but not after an evening's worth of martinis. So I can understand Zach and Jeremy passing on this party. I am glad Amy has friends. Does Matt socialize too or mostly hang with farm employees?
  6. I know that Ben is not the most articulate person and comes across as rather dimwitted. But I don't think he is stupid--in fact I think he is conflicted over some of the values of his cult. It's too bad he doesn't have the independence of a job so that he could set his own path. I think at some point he is going to feel very trapped if he sticks this close to the compound.
  7. Long Lost Families in the Media

    They used a site called gedmatch, where you can upload your DNA for free. But now there is a huge controversy about the security of that data, when it is made available to the government. It is going to be interesting to see where this goes.
  8. Season Four Discussion

    If you like this show I have good news/bad news for you. I founds bunches of British and Australian episodes of the show on Youtube. I watched a British one that was quite good, but the Australian episode I watched was too long and I gave up on it. Anyway, if you have some free time on your hands....
  9. Jeremy and Auj Poj

    These two are positively nauseating. Audrey is just so in love with herself-- She's in for a big surprise someday when she discovers they aren't all that special.
  10. Season 7 All Episodes Talk

    Thanks for the reviews. Sounds like I can skip it, so I will delete it from my DVR. I already have to delete all those stupid fan favorite episodes.
  11. All Episodes Talk: Clothing Optional

    The last time XL was held in Africa it was a truly astonishing show. I think that was Season 2. I recommend watching it.
  12. I understand that Matt treated her badly, but it isn't helping her relationship with Chris to carry on with this anger. She does need counseling if she can't let go of some of these things from the past. I doubt Chris enjoyed her attitude at the book party.
  13. I was impressed with Jeremy the father...he seemed a lot more comfortable with it than I expected. Amy is so testy about Matt you'd almost think she was still in love with him.
  14. Gimme That Old Time Religion

  15. All Episodes Talk: Clothing Optional

    The story goes that the camera crew is with them during the day, and at night they are left alone with a radio for emergency contact. When they are in a really dangerous place like the new XL program in Africa, I have a hard time believing they leave these people alone at night without protection from the lions and hippos.
