  1. S01.E07: Eulogy

    No one saw Nell in the funeral home. That’s why it was paralleled with the night en they were younger and she said she was right there but no one could hear here. She’s right there again, and no one can see her.
  2. I thought this would be a fun topic since so many of us remember this timeframe. I was just born in 1972, but I like seeing the call-backs to the old TV sets, the aluminum cans that you needed the special can opener to create the two holes, etc.
  3. Here’s a fun topic to talk about what the show has gotten right (and wrong) with in regards to set dressing, clothing, slang, etc within the show.
  4. Here’s your small talk thread. A place to talk about anything other than the show.
  5. I decided to start this because I’ve seen a little discussion about the adults other roles in the episode thread. I knew Michael Cudlitz from other roles but I didn’t become a fan until Southland. He was so passionate about his role and the show itself on Twitter, it was so nice to see such devotion. I still miss that show. I don’t think I really knew Mary McCormack from anything else, but I actually really liked her on In Plain Sight.
  6. Here’s your cast topic!
  7. S01.E01: Keep on Truckin'

    Oh. Weird. I guess I was only going by what posters were discussing last year when I was reading through and how Jackie never once mentioned him last season. I haven't really read anything from the show runners. So, I stand corrected!

    I'm only quoting you because you were the last person to praise the actress- but I... just don't see it. I personally thought her line readings were terrible. She's very stiff. I hope she relaxes into the role. But, I also think Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman are terrible too. They seem to smirk their way through every single line reading. Sara Gilbert does as well, but at least it goes with the character. Also, IMDB lists Lecy as Alicia. I really liked that too. I was waiting for a laugh to be pulled out and focused on and I'm really glad it wasn't. I actually disagree. First, she was mid-sentence when Becky & Darlene came out. If she had immediately clammed up they would've forced it out of her anyway. Secondly, they are adults. Yes, they are Roseanne's children, but they are adults and can deal with real-life issues. My bigger question was why was Jackie called and not Dan? The unexpected pregnancy could also be David's new girlfriend's as that would affect Darlene and throw her for a loop. In this version of the show, Andy never existed so it doesn't affect Jackie at all.

    Lawrence returns home and announces he's quitting the seminary to go off and "save the world." Times are changing and this family will never be the same.

    I just kept thinking about what must be happening in the parts that were off-screen with new actors jumping in the coffin, etc. But, that didn't distract me from the episode. I just thought it was so well done. I did think the actors were a bit "off" in the beginning of the episode. But, they finally settled into it and didn't seem so "stagy".
  13. S01.E03: Heavenly Taco Truck

    Yeah, this was a stupid conversation in the episode with the HR guy. Miles put in his two week notice. Rescinded it, therefore never actually quitting, and the HR guy said he had to go through the new hire training and paperwork all over again. I was in HR for almost 20 years. That's not how it works....

    Agreed. The work they put into that to make the several one-shots- very impressive. I knew it wasn't all ONE-shot based on the location change, but it was pretty cool. https://www.radiotimes.com/news/2018-10-12/how-the-jaw-dropping-one-shot-episode-in-the-haunting-of-hill-house-was-almost-a-complete-disaster/
  15. What I got from the episodes was that she had a history of blinding headaches/migraines that got progressively worse at the Hill House. They (Hugh & Olivia) thought the headaches and lack of sleep from them were what were causing her "issues", but really she was being driven insane by Poppy's ghost.
