  1. All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    I'm watching "Viable Options" and I have to laugh that Kerry was suspended because she cared about a terminally ill patient and went all "fuck the rules" and incurred the wrath of Romano, the same Kerry who reamed Doug out for detoxing the baby because he thought it was the right thing to do and went all "fuck the rules." I also thought both Luka and Chen way overstepped their bounds. Luka wanted to block the guy from getting a kidney transplant when it wasn't his call to make, and Chen wanted to tell the daughter about her dad's Huntingdon's disease when that wasn't her call to make either. I guess this is where the show loses me because Ming-Na Wen doesn't really have the acting chops to act like she is doing this because she Really Cares. Neither does Michael Michele when she gets angry at Carter over the diabetic boy. Mark, Weaver, Doug, Carter, Benton, Romano (the old-school ER team) could really sell those stories because despite their personal weaknesses because you always sensed the passion behind their work. But Chen and Cleo-bot both give off the vibe that they have a 9-to-5 job.

    I think sometimes Tyler let's his superfan side kick in too much. He thinks it's awesome that he's blindsided people all season, he thinks it's awesome that he had a bunch of F2's, that he led a big stable alliance, and even that he developed a showmance. I think as a superfan he thinks that having a super-secret alliance that not even his in-house girlfriend knows about is awesome-sauce. If Angela was just a close alliance-mate I'd be okay with it. But since she 100% thinks she's his gf and they're going to have something post-game it's poor game-play to spring this on her right as she was evicted. It's also a poor read on Angela if he didn't consider that Angela might have been hurt by this.

    I feel like Tyler should have told Angela about his F2 with KC. As I said, normally I;m all for blindsides. But Angela is different -- they're exchanging "ILY's" and as I said the worst thing to feel on national TV is like an embarrassed girlfriend. After KC won the veto and Angela's doom was signed, sealed and delivered Tyler should have just told Angela. Him not doing so is an odd misstep and I don't think it will cause him to lose Angela's vote but on a personal level I see why Angela's hurt. It's also maybe the first douchey thing Tyler did all summer.

    So here's an Angela exit interview. I'm actually surprised. She's not too happy with her eviction. She was really classy during her exit interview with Julie but I think Angela bottles up emotions a lot. She sounds hopping mad. Before I thought she was a 100% Tyler vote but now I'm not so sure. She isn't even sure she wants to date him after the show. https://ew.com/tv/2018/09/21/big-brother-20-angela-rummans-interview-tyler/ These quotes stood out:

    The episodes where Carter's returning to work despite the pain and addicted to painkillers really hits home with me. About 8 years ago I needed to have major abdominal surgery and didn't have the vacation days to recuperate properly, so I returned to work and became addicted to percocets. Thankfully it was only for a few months and I was able to get off the percocets with the help of imodium, ambien, and some benzos but I wish people knew that most people who get addicted to painkillers do so not because we're bad people but because of a combo of needing to work, pain, and not knowing how to manage that pain.

    Well Angela went out with class.

    I feel sadness for Sam more than anything. That sanctimonious shit she pulls is like some deep shit and I don't know if she'll ever be rid of that attitude. In the end it hurts herself more than anyone else. Kaitlyn, Angela and Hay won't give a shit that Sam thinks they're hussies after the show. Sam however will probably alienate everyone and won't have many good memories of her BB experience.

    The jazz club convo is one of my favorite Carter/Benton moments. I love the tenderness in Peter's body language. Also Carter had become increasingly serious as his duties and responsibilities piled on. It was good to see the "young" Carter again. He's talking to Peter the way he'd tease a frat bro. And Peter was clearly going to put up with it because it was Carter. These two had such great chemistry and the love that Benton has for Carter always makes me so happy to watch.

    Wow. First of all I'm glad you're okay. I do know that Tylenol is one of the easiest drugs to OD from because the jump from safe dose to LD50 is so steep and sudden. I do remember Mark treating a Tylenol overdose case and saying "Dammit why couldn't she have just taken sleeping pills?"

    So today's Yom Kippur which means I didn't have to go to work (perks of being a teacher). So I randomly picked one old episode to watch since I have been going through season 6. I ended up watching the season 3 episode "Faith." I had watched it on my first Hulu binge but rewatching it really underlined how much the show changed in three years. It was a quiet little episode where not much happens at all, but it was full of lovely moments. Doyle fighting so hard for the Down's syndrome girl Louise to get a heart transplant because her own brother has Down's syndrome. It was a brief scene but Doyle was so warm towards her brother (and different from her somewhat brusque work persona). Doyle's brother and Louise playing Jenga. Doug taking the ventilator from the CF boy who had turned 18 and wanted to die. Peter expressing remorse about Gant's death. Not much happens at all, just a regular day in the ER. Lovely episode. ETA: in season 6 Dr. Dave gives the girl who took too many pills charcoal. In prior situations they'd always intubated and pumped the stomach. Anyone who's a doctor know when to pump the stomach, and when to give charcoal?

    Ugh a dull result. Bye Angela.
  12. S20.E37: Fast Forward; Eviction #13

    I'm not surprised Sam took her eviction well. I feel like she's been checked out of the game for ages and really wanted to be evicted. I think it was a combo of her not really knowing what the game entailed and never finding her groove in the house. But the Sam that Julie interviewed had the earthy sense of humor that early-summer Sam had. I lol'ed when she said "JC's just kind of annoying."

    I remember in "Fathers and Sons" Doug bristling at Mark's suggestion that he "didn't miss much" by not having a father in his life. Doug said Mark's dad was a fine father and Mark needed to "get his head out of his ass." At the time I thought Doug was raw because Papa Ross was literally the World's Shittiest Dad but after seeing Mark's dad I think Doug was right. His dad isn't super warm and cuddly but he's pretty nice. I am glad his dad got to do some fun things before the cancer took his life. As for Cleo-bot sucking, Peter bought tickets to the jazz club but she doesn't want to go. Peter says "But Carter will be disappointed." Cleo-bot looked at him like he was from Mars and insisted on not going to the jazz club. The ways this sucks: 1) Peter just wasted money on the jazz club tickets 2) Peter saying "But Carter will be disappointed" should have made Cleo-bot change her mind. Because if she had human feelings, she'd know that Carter is important to Peter.
  14. All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    Well I think Peter and Cleo-bot just settled into a not-very-exciting-but-not-unhappy relationship. They didn't have any more kids (surprising). Were they officially married? I don't remember. But I guess that's realistic. I always got the feeling that Peter just wanted a stable mother figure for Reese, and wasn't looking for much else. His priorities were always first with Reese and then his job. I'm watching season 6 and I wish we'd gotten more insight into why Mark and his dad didn't get along. His dad seems like a good guy, and fun in his gruff miltary kind of way. He certainly can make Elizabeth laugh.

    I think this situation is different though. Angela's never been in a situation where she's had to send out someone she really cared about. It's easy for her to be like "oh well" when she's evicting Brett, Rachel, Winston, Sam, etc. She liked them but she wasn't that close to them. Tyler is different -- they've kissed, talked about moving in together after the show. She's even dropped the "L" word. Another issue is that Tyler as a superfan knows how much BB fans can get when they "ship" a couple. Tyler probably knows that there are already Tangela videos all over YT and tumblr. I don't think he wants to be perceived as the asshole who cut his gf at F4. Tyler's not Mike Boogie or Will Kirby.
