  1. S09.E08: Danish Week

    I am also exceedingly relieved that Rahul was saved. I was so nervous while watching the episode that I paused the DVR during the technical and googled the results for the week, just so I'd be prepared if he left the tent. I know his bakes were (really really) bad, but he was at least fulfilling the brief given, whereas Manon's bakes - while not as bad - weren't what the judges had asked for.
  2. S01.E01: Keep on Truckin'

    It was three weeks after the funeral. It's possible that whatever job he's in, he's back at work already.
  3. S11.E03: Rosa

    I don’t think that Rosa’s original defiance was planned - at least not from what I’ve read, including that article by her niece that’s linked to earlier in the thread. I believe that what was planned was to use her arrest as a test case to challenge the law, because unlike some earlier instances of people refusing to give up their seats, Rosa was mature, respectable, and nobody could accuse her of being a troublemaker. She was an ideal case to use when it happened, but she didn’t go out of her way to make it happen. I found the episode almost scarier than others, mainly because the threat wasn’t from any alien or technological threat but from ordinary humans. I was almost shouting at the Doctor to leave the ‘kids’ behind in the TARDIS because it wasn’t going to be safe. I still don’t get why they had to get the hotel room instead of returning to the TARDIS, yes the time traveler knew where it was, but he couldn’t get in and if he was watching them, he couldn’t be running around messing with the timeline. I know the getting kicked out of the bar/restaurant scene was so as to remind us about the racism, but why on earth did they think they’d be left in peace. I could understand the Doctor simply not thinking about it and Yas and Ryan it just might not have occurred to them that it’d be an issue, but Graham surely (since he’s at least a little bit woke) should have been thinking it might not be a good idea for them all to sit down together.
  4. S01.E07: Angel Heart

    This episode felt very disjointed and over very quickly. Then I realized my DVR had only recorded the second half of it. Judging by the comments here, I should probably thank it for saving me 😀
  5. S03.E05: Jeremy Bearimy

    And Eleanor has her phone out ready to record whatever Tahani was going to tell him. Heh, the bar Eleanor was at was called ‘Drinking Nemo’
  6. OITNB in the Media

    It’s a good run, I agree. And I presume they haven’t filmed S7 yet so they’ll be able to give it a proper conclusion.
  7. The ‘rules’ I think are pretty much unwritten rules. There’s no book setting out what to do as most of the gentry would just learn as they grew up what was or was not the ‘done thing’. Failure to follow these rules could result in being ostracised from polite society.
  8. I read that it’s a tradition for the Queen to lend a tiara to the royal brides for their big day and that it’ll be gifted to them at a later date or under her will.
  9. S11.E01: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

    IIRC, Rose was in the right place at the right time when aliens were trying to invade. She got caught up in helping Nine get rid of them and he invited her along for a trip when they’d finished the job.
  10. S04.E02: Episode 2

    To be fair though - while I don’t doubt that Ross enjoys the bit of physical labour - a lot of the time he was working in the fields because he couldn’t afford to hire enough people so he wouldn’t have to. George and most of Ross’s compatriots have the money to hire people to work their lands so there’s no need for them to strip off and grab a scythe.
  11. S04.E02: Episode 2

    I don’t remember what they said in the ep, but if they followed the book then Emma says that no man has had her.
  12. "Hell Yeah!" Literary Moments

    Light a penny candle by Maeve Binchy. (not putting it in spoilers because it's 36 years old) Aisling walking out on her husband after he hits her while he's drunk. She doesn't try and make excuses for him, she doesn't blame the drink, she just packs a bag and leaves because she refuses to be one of those women whose husbands slap them around. I wasn't even in my teens when I read this first but I was cheering her on.
  13. S09.E06: Pastry Week

    Poor Dan, he made some bad choices this week and they just didn’t work out for him. Using the pasta machine for the samosas might have seemed like a good idea to save time, but just ended up messing up his pastry. And he really messed up his time management on the showstopper. If he’d just taken the pastry out of the fridge earlier and worried less about getting it perfect and more about getting it cooked he could have saved himself.
  14. Characters aren’t actors. What’s right for somebody in real life isn’t necessarily going to be right or plausible for a character on a tv show. I do get that an actor might prefer not to have to conceal a pregnancy during filming but that doesn’t mean the show runners should be forced to change the character to accommodate them. And then of course there’s the cases where TPTB just think a pregnant sitcom character is a good plot and it has nothing to do with the actor being pregnant.
  15. Season 10 all episodes talk

    Has as everybody forgotten poor Don from season 1? At least I think that was his name he was Kensi’s partner who got kidnapped, was MIA for a few eps and was killed when the team tried to rescue him. It’s possible though that he was only ever intended as a short run character I had to stop watching NCIS a few seasons before Ziva left because I loathed her so much. I picked it up again once she’d finally gone but stopped when I knew they were going to write Tony out. And thank goodness I spared myself that godawful exit for his character. Seriously, did the writers just mine some TIVA fanfic for ideas?
