  1. S2: E4 Tough Titmouse

    Good points. I doubt that an 18 year old boy who does extreme sports would be declared mentally incompetent. And are her parents now her medical powers of attorney for everything? Are thy financially responsible for her? And to me, the difference with Claire’s mother is that her mother’s actions harmed other people, usually not her.
  2. Big things, like events in the Cold War being different from how the show portrayed them? Or small things, like the cars/fashion/music being wrong?
  3. S03.E04: Vietnam

    Thanks. I was just being a smart-ass because I couldn’t think of anything I’d consider modern food.
  4. S01.E04: Friday Night Dinner

    Regina certainly held her accountable for her actions. And I agree that no marriage or husbands are perfect, but I think Delilah lied when she said Jon was never there, either physically or emotionally. He certainly was there for Sophie—he was at her dance rehearsals, practiced the dance with her at home, and he helped out with her softball team. And he was home for dinner very Friday night, even if he occasionally had to take a work call. Maybe she meant that he was never there for her personally, which makes me wonder about the problems in their long marriage before the affair. But I also know what it’s like to be married to someone who’s jovial and charismatic around friends and other family members, but at home behind closed doors, he barely speaks. People tell me I must laugh constantly around my husband, and I always answer, “Yeah. My face hurts.” Thanks, City Slickers. LOL
  5. All Episodes Talk: Now We're Talking

    But she used to co-host The View.
  6. S03.E04: Vietnam

    Ooh, what did you see? Kambucha smoothies and Kale chips?
  7. But does it show character development or shed some light on why a living character is the way he or she is now? If so, then I’m fine with minimal plot.
  8. S2, E3: 36 Hours

    Since you brought it up, heh-heh: Last season, there seemed to be some subtle flirting between Claire and Melendez, which was kinda hot—or annoying, depending on your perspective. A relationship between a resident and an attending would be totally inappropriate, of course. But I haven’t seen any of that this season. So was the flirting a figment of my imagination?
  9. For me, they’re usully better in theory than the actual execution. It’s not that the story of that character isn’t interesting. But an hour long episode that includes one of the leads and a bunch of other characters we don’t know well isn’t as interesting as the usual ensemble episode. To me, anyway.
  10. S01E04: Unclaimed Baggage

    And do some of that fancy math of his.
  11. I like it, also, but Eric makes almost no design decisions. I know he says this in the intro, but If he knows nothing about design, how is he picking out such good investment properties for the flips?
  12. TV Tropes You Hate

    And her main boyfriend is usually a nice guy, but he simply can’t break up with her because she apparently whipped up some kind of spell that keeps him bound to her.
  13. Unpopular Opinions Thread

    Agreed. For me, it was the Veronica Mars recaps that had me laughing uncontrollably at work. What’s becoming an unpopular opinion is that I still really, really enjoy this show. I agree that the writing is far from perfect this season. And I wasn’t crazy about the Vietnam episode (because it focused solely on St. Jack, not because it was about Vietnam). But TIU remains one of my favorite shows on TV.

    It doesn’t help that Maggie has a shitty oncologist. No, they don’t all have to be Patch Adams with red clown noses, but most oncologists are a little more compassionate than he was.
  15. S01.E04: Friday Night Dinner

    Forever? Don’t you ever want to know Jon’s and Maggie’s motivations? Is Rome acting the same way he did 10 years ago when his life was probably happier? I know his friends had no idea about his current depression and suicidal ideations because he puts up a good front at hockey games and pizza dinners. But at home, there hasn’t been any change when it’s just Rome and Regina? He’s not quieter or more irritable or sadder than he used to be? I’m not saying Regina is a bad person for not knowing how Rome has been feeling. I’m just wondering if he keeps up his happy act 24 hours a day. If so, it must be exhausting for him. Well said. The bolded sentence made me laugh, even though it isn’t really funny at all.
