  1. That's what keep me watching. It's a shame that the challenges stopped being creative and the talent pool got so shallow.
  2. TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    Thanks, RATGIRLAGOGO! I'm at least glad to know I'm not the only one who would like to see it and wonder why it is not shown.
  3. TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    Because of the recent death of Tab Hunter, I wanted to watch Damn Yankees again and discovered that I had gotten rid of my DVD of it, for inexplicable reasons. It is out of print and eBay prices for used DVDs is astronomical. Which leads me to TCM and Previously TV. I don't remember ever seeing it on TCM and hope I'm wrong and might see it turn up some day. It's a Warner Bros production and TCM has Warner Bro movies in its library. Do any of you know if it has ever shown on TCM? Surely they could show Meet in St Louis a few less times and fit it in. Thanks in advance if any of you can help!
  4. It appeared that his his hair was combed up and over from that seam. A couple of times the hair lifted away from his apparently bare scalp. I don't really rubber-neck at car wrecks, but this was a puzzle as to how it worked.
  5. That was quite a weak finale to the weakest season they ever had. I watched only because I've watched since the beginning. Their "All Stars" weren't stars at all, just people who had failed to make an impact before and were still limited. It sounds harsh, but the show went from imaginative and fresh to an endless parade of variations on monsters. It was wonderful that it was free of manufactured drama and conflict - the contestants actually helped on another, but that alone could not make a compelling show. I really don't know what they/Glenn found so wonderful about Matt. Wasn't he the one put teeth externally, in odd placements - there was a time someone would be eviscerated for crap like that. There were only two characters in the finale that I thought were good - the jester and the grasshopper; the fox wasn't bad. None of the Alices looked good and the prize for WTF was he thinking was the gingerbread man - just hideous. Which brings me to Matt - I hope he takes some of his winnings and has that dead animal removed from his head. That hair is so horrifying that I found it hard to look at him and was worried we would see even worse when a breeze would lift it and potentially expose the whole mess. Can't someone tell him?

    I don't usually care for spy stuff, but to see Morse involved with spies was wonderful, tense and scary. I hate that there are so few episodes in a season and I will miss this show. I don't want to lose Thursday and I wish for a resolution with Joan.
  7. Yes times 1,000. I've already written about Liberty, but they make me angry, too. The special snowflakes that think that the results of their poor driving shouldn't cost them anything and think that if they total their car, they get a new one with again, no cost. Where do these morons think the money for repairs and replacement cars come from? Do they believe in the car fairy?
  8. Don't these idiots have a deductible? So the insurance company pays from dollar one for the damage fixable by a pen and for just "clipping" someone and they should be blameless and pay nothing and have no rate increase? I think the driver they "clipped" may not feel that is so minor that it should have no consequences.
  9. I don't live under a rock and had not heard the word boba. Bubble tea I've heard of and never tried. I don't think there is any weird asymmetry with Jeremy's mouth/teeth. It looks just the position his mouth was in at the moment of the picture.

    I'm glad someone else was as appalled as I was with the out-of-place, extraneous teeth! I'll never understand how anything won with that idiocy. It was the sort of thing the judges would have ripped someone for previously. OK - I get it, the judges have lost their teeth, therefore they reward teeth. This show is sadly going out with a whimper. Almost nothing is memorable or notable in a good way. All these people are doing is demonstrating why they didn't win the season they were on. Obviously, the pool of possible contestants dried up, but couldn't they have interesting challenges at least. There would be a chance someone would rise to the occasion, instead the challenge is: Make a Monster. Yawn,,,,
  11. I'm just starting season 19 on Netflix, the last season available. I really liked Tom Barnaby and was skeptical of John Barnaby, but he quickly won me over. I see a touch more sense of humor. I never liked Joyce Barnaby and Cully was only interesting occasionally. Joyce always seemed stiff and cold. Sarah is like a breath of fresh air, she has a much more lively personality. And I love Sykes. I do see that the stories have changed over time, but not in any jarring way to me and I like the addition of ethnic characters, even though I agree with the quote above. The character may be played by a non-white actor, but is largely interchangeable with a white actor. It would be better if they interjected at least a little non-while culture. However, this doesn't ruin the show for me. I am more jarred by the changing parade of DSs. I assume that is is mostly that the actors want to move on, but just when I start to know and appreciate a DS they are gone.
  12. I finally have to jump in with my two cents. I am continually amazed at the different perceptions of attractiveness. I have so often read that Jana is beautiful or gorgeous and I look at her and wonder what on earth people see that I can't. She is perfectly OK looking but so ordinary and unremarkable that I can't imagine her standing out in any group. I think Jinger has really come into her own with her styling and is very pretty. Pre-Jeremy she was pretty, but needed better makeup, hair styling, and clothes. She very likely gets encouragement from Jeremy, but I think she has an innate sense of style that she can now express. She is doing attractive pregnancy to the hilt. Ranking the older Duggar girls: Jessa (facially, I still think she is beautiful), Jinger, Jana, Joy and poor unfortunate Jill. The Duggar girl husbands: Jeremy is attractive facially and has a great body; Ben is relatively attractive; Derrick is just plain scary.
  13. No, that's not entirely true- because that would mean there would be over 1000 TIMES the current population of 7 Billion folks eight generations ago and I don't even think our planet had 1 billion people until about 1800. The answer is that quite a few cousin marriages occurred especially in isolated and small communities. It is true that there is not a true doubling each generation back because of intermarriages of relatives, the genetic contribution from each generation is a diminishing amount. I have 3G ancestors who were first cousins, so their grandparents were my 5Gs twice - meaning that instead of having 128 5Gs, I have 126. That is a small genetic contribution. However, that does not diminish my interest in them - they, all of them, are still where I came from.
  14. The show prompted me to look up my connection to the Salem witch trials - the brother of my 7G grandfather was a judge, but you are right, that topic has been done enough. Which brings me to something I think - the stories from non-celebrities could be every bit as interesting, if not more, than many of these people. Also, there are so many other subjects that have not been done that I remember. I would love to see the fleshed out story of many of my ancestors who pioneered in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kansas. I've never cried over an ancestor, but I certainly have had deep emotional reactions to various things. When I saw the England census for 1841 and see the little boys listed with coal miner as occupation, I felt that one.

    ITA. I can't imagine any way they could incorporate a baby into this show without ruining it. Think of Sherlock interacting with a TV Precocious Toddler - ridiculous!
