  1. S07 E20 Rachael and Vance

    I have two kids. When each was five weeks old, I was still in pajamas 24/7, sleeplessly plodding around the house all glassy eyed and disoriented between feedings and diaper changes. At least 22 of those 24 hours in a day, I had a baby attached to my body. My hormones were still crazy, and I was too exhausted to function. I could barely pay attention to the episode content because I never got past the fact that she was doing all that five weeks after giving birth!
  2. 3:03 Spies Like Us

    I echo everyone else’s sentiments on the insanity of this stuff, but I’m really here once again just to gush about the sweet friendship that has blossomed between Leah and Mike. Him crying and her comforting him and her crying because of him crying... it’s lovely to see them helping each other heal.

    Haven’t we been told that the flash forward with Tess and Randall is an important part of the end of everyone’s story? If so, Rebecca makes the most sense.
  4. S12.E01: The Conjugal Configuration

    It took me a little while to figure out that the thing Amy was upset about was definitely the scheduling of coitus. When they got back to the hotel after Cursed Child, she already seemed really angry. Usually they would play Sheldon interrupting the actors as something she would be good naturedly miffed at, but she started that scene already seeming really pissed. I kept expecting the play to come up again. Like others, I’m surprised she would be that annoyed by scheduled sex, considering what an improvement it would be over once a year birthday sex.
  5. S06.E21: Whatever Remains, However Improbable

    It makes sense that they didn’t use footage of Joan with a baby once they found out they’d been renewed. They needed to save some things for next season, and they didn’t need to tie up every storyline. I don’t know how they’re going top this episode when they really do have their finale. It was certainly frustrating, but the ending scenes in London were beautiful and perfect.
  6. S08.E08: Thrift Store Date Night

    I don’t know thrift store prices very well, and I don’t know men’s clothing prices very well, but for myself, I could easily get a whole outfit for $20 at Ross or Burlington or even Target or Old Navy. That being said, I thought the denim dress on Jessa was cute. Lauren’s dress screamed oldish lady with an office job.
  7. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    In a comment, Jeremy said the cat was a stray that followed them home and didn’t want to leave.
  8. S07.17 Derek & Annabelle

    I’m in the minority in that I like Laura in general. I follow her Instagram and have enjoyed those ATTN videos she made with Nev in the past. Cleo is adorable, and she seems like a good and fun mom. But I DON’T like her on this show. She’s just not a good fit. It’s not because she’s a woman, because I’ve enjoyed many of the female guest hosts back when Max was directing a movie a couple seasons ago. She just doesn’t have the right personality or presence for it.
  9. Per both Nev and Laura’s Instagrams, she is pregnant again and expecting a baby boy. They announced it today because she was 12 weeks along in tonight’s episode and already showing.
  10. I don’t see Jessa as particularly frumpy or like she’s fallen desperately far from her previous good looks. She looks like a mom of two small children to me. Spurge is not even 3 yet, and Henry is 18 months. She looks like every mom of small children that I pass in Target, except they’re more likely to be wearing leggings instead of the soft skirts she wears. I remember having my boys 21 months apart. I wore what was comfortable, went way too long between haircuts, never bothered with make-up, etc. Then they got older and I found myself again. Jessa doesn’t bother me at all. She seems like a loving, devoted, engaged, even sweet and snuggly mom. She seems proud of Ben and the family they’ve created. The Seewalds are on my short list of Duggars who don’t grate on me or appall me.
  11. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    In fairness, Twitter has a character limit, so people get in the habit of taking as many shortcuts as possible to fit in all they want to say.
  12. All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    Apparently, in a separate trial, MacNeill was also found guilty of sexually abusing Alexis. I also read that the younges daughter supposedly adopted from the Ukraine was actually Vanessa’s, one of the older daughters, biological child. Who knows who the father was, but either way, the family’s solution to her pregnancy seems to have affected her. At the time of MacNeill’s trial, she was on probation after a heroin possession conviction.
  13. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    My brain too many Js in Jinger’s name, and I was thinking her name was actually Jinjer... like JinJer... like JinJeremy. So then I thought they should name the baby Mya. Then they could keep it going... JinJereMya.

    This is what the oldest daughter has to say... scroll down to her Feb. 8th post. https://m.facebook.com/laci.deckard?fref=nf
  15. Their children are so beautiful. I truly hope they are as happy as they seem and continue to be cherished by their parents as they appear to be now. I hope Jessa and Ben end up only fundie lite and don’t do any of the Pearl nightmare “discipline.” Someone tell Jessa that if they decide to go in a different direction than how she was raised and TLC offers them a show about it, we will watch it! She can be a reality star in her own right and raise her boys better than she was raised. They already seem to be letting the boys watch cartoons and read non-Christian books. Come in, Jessa. Think of all the attention you’d get!
