  1. S03.E10 Saving Christmas

    I do remember Taylor being into sports, now that you mention it. I liked that. i didn't realize it was a different actress, though. Hm.
  2. S01.E10: Christmas Wishlist

    If he relapses just because someone said "Don't drink" then he's got a really serious psychological problem and in no way is it the fault of the person who said "Don't drink." Eddie is hard enough to feel any sympathy for, I really hope they don't make it worse by having him try to pass responsibility for a relapse onto Katherine's comment. I think, since the suicide happened right away, it's hard to even see if it's affected the kids. We see Sophie's sad. But we hardly knew her or her brother or what they were like before Jon's death, and if they suddenly had a personality change, it might be hard to tell. This is made worse by not really seeing them on camera much most of the time, as well. I think it's kind of weird that the show packages itself as a serious drama on a serious topic, but is seeming to want to be kind of light. I mean, cancer, depression, suicide, infidelity, losing your house, stealing the suicide note... all that stuff is pretty serious business. But the show doesn't seem to have any ambition to make anyone feel that much. It's an odd choice. If they wanted to just be a drama about a friendship group, they could do that. Why try to sell it as something else if those things aren't really going to be explored? I do think they're trying to do something with Rome's story, but again-- he decided not to kill himself and he got help really early in the show, and he mostly doesn't seem like he has a problem except for when he tells someone he does. But he talks about it in the same tone that is used to discuss hockey tickets, which is an interesting choice. The whole show is like that, really. Eddie also uses the same tone whether he's complaining to Katherine that she left Theo with a babysitter, or he's declaring love for Delilah, or deciding to go on tour. Delilah is equally dewy in every scene, whether she's happy or sad. It has to be the direction, kind of leveling everybody off into a middle zone of expression. I think part of why I like Katherine so much is that sometimes her face lights up and her eyes sparkle and I get the feeling she's actually a person in there, and not just going through the motions.

    Tammy needs an on the books job, though, because of the whole staying out of prison thing. She was doing "odd jobs" but she needed to show steady, on-going employment with pay stubs, and do it all on the up and up.

    Huh. Simple!

    Oh, I knew he did it to create a sense of familiarity that wasn't really there, but why "DD" when his initials are "AD"? The randomness is what makes me laugh.

    I hope she bears a breast at the ceremony (to be defiant, not seductive).

    Touche. I was also worried about Stella being left behind with the spider.
  8. I don't like Francine.

    Did anyone catch what Jill's gift was? I saw she gave Christy the jacket, but I didn't see what anyone gave to Jill. I also didn't see what Marjorie or Wendy gave. Christy gifted Wendy with the cookies. Bonnie gave Marjorie the cat pillow. Jill gave Christy the jacket. Tammy gave Bonnie the book. I can't remember any of the others. Did they show us? I imagine Jill is really hard to give gifts to, which is why I asked about her in particular.
  10. All Episodes Talk: 12th Precinct Chatter

    Re-watching, I notice they re-use actors for the cases of the week, fairly often, it seems. Also, it always makes me laugh that Lugar calls Dietrich "D.D."-- I don't even know why he does it. They're not particularly close, and it's not his initials, since Dietrich's first name is Arthur. But it seems affectionate in some way that really has no apparent explanation.
  11. TDS 3.0: Season Four Talk

    Mine, too. And I was already padding it. I love Janelle Monae. I was glad Trevor showed that clip of her video. I had already seen it, but I still didn't think CC would have the guts to show it.
  12. S01.E10: Christmas Wishlist

    Damn! Second time this week I mistook one actress for another. I think they suggested somewhere that he was expecting on a big profit off some deal or other that fell through. He should have waited til it was confirmed, but in typical TV style, he was over confident and spent the money before he had it in hand. Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only person who thinks they look alike!

    People in Southern California don't have to worry about snow.

    Sophie will probably love the baby before she finds out about its parentage, though. I think that's why Delilah wants to wait to tell people. Now, they will be focused on their anger toward her. But once there's a fully formed child in front of them, they will feel obligated to suspend their anger at her in favor of supporting the child, just like how they let her off the hook for the affair because she was a new widow. Constance Zimmer was the woman on line at the xmas decoration place, right? So she's a local.

    Didn't they always go to meetings, though? It's been so long, I guess I can't rely on my memory.
