  1. S01.E06: Letting Ghost

    But he already did have at least one session with the guy...a session that seemed to only pertain to his own issues, not the kids'.
  2. S01.E06: Letting Ghost

    When he said that the psychologist was seeing him during "seventh period," I took it to mean that he was a teacher. Then I thought about it and figured maybe that was just a reference to the fact that he is really just supposed to be working with kids during the school day (in which case, how is Martin allowed to see him in regard to issues that are un-kid-related?) So basically, I still have no idea.
  3. S09.E22: Clash of Swords

    I recently read that each of the "kids" on this show earn $100,000 per episode. Maybe it's getting too expensive to have them all on the show every week, especially when they are contributing literally nothing to the storylines.
  4. S02.E24: The Spring Gala

    So...it took Katie all year to plan the gala. But with the help of her family and friends, it could be done in five hours?? Huh.
  5. Chicago PD Spoilers

    I think this is spot on...I mean, for heaven's sake, we saw Erin grieve and spiral after the death of Nadia, who may have been a friend, but at the end of the day, was still "just" a friend. Voight, on the other hand, has lost everyone he's ever loved (let's not forget his father, who was murdered when Voight was only 8; and we can presume his mother is also gone, though we don't know how and given Voight's history, it would stand to reason it may also have been untimely. )
  6. S02.E23: Finding Fillion

    Agreed that Anna Kat needs to be toned down...there is a fine line between funny and obnoxious. Speaking of Anna Kat, are we really supposed to believe she'd be into football? The little girl who washes her entire ARMS like she's a surgeon? Or has she been magically cured now?
  7. S03.E19: Crisis of Confidence

    I'm just wondering if Will and Natalie being married and working in the same department wouldn't be a conflict of interest. Maybe this will finally be our chance to get rid of Natalie! But probably not, if April and Noah are allowed to work together...
  8. This week is the 30th anniversary of the series finale...hard to believe it's that long! http://mentalfloss.com/article/65515/15-facts-life-about-facts-life I still have issues with the final season (particularly Jo's marriage) but alas, it's really difficult for shows to wrap everything up in a satisfactory way, so I can't fault them too much, I guess.
  9. S06.E21: The Unrivaled Standard

    All I remember is she was Kelly's girlfriend, then they broke up then she moved to Spain I think. Then she came back and liked about being pregnant with his baby. Anything else about her, I don't remember and I bet they will say that the boy is his son somehow. Yes, Kelly was all set to take responsibility for the baby. Then Shay stepped up and basically forced him to get his head out of the sand, literally doing the math out loud for Kelly to realize that the due date did not add up with the last time he'd seen Rene. So Kelly then confronted her and she started bawling about how she'd had this one-night stand, how she knew the baby wasn't Kelly's but just "really wished it was" and so it was like she was mentally trying to make it so. Blech. As for Colannino...anyone else know the second they arrived at the fire that something was going to happen to the guy? For one thing, they rarely work with other units at fires; and for another, why else would they have let us "get to know" the guy's sad little story literally minutes earlier? It seemed painfully obvious that we were supposed to feel badly about his loss, and we couldn't/wouldn't if we didn't know a little something about him. While I get what the writers were trying to do, it was still a bit of a cheap setup, IMO.
  10. S05.E21: Allegiance

    True...but at the same time, I couldn't help but focus on her blaming Voight for being the "bad influence" on her husband all these years. I had to wonder, is it a case of someone needing to control an out-of-control situation so they try to pin blame on someone, or does Meredith really not know exactly who her husband is? I doubt she has any clue about many of the things he and Voight have done; but you'd think she'd have a better sense of his overall personality. Part of the reason the two men have worked together so well and been so close all these decades is because they are essentially cut from the same cloth. Neither has ever had to convince the other too much about anything. We've seen many instances where they just make eye contact for a split second and act. It wasn't exactly that he didn't care, but rather that he was looking at the big picture. As he put it, one life lost is better than the many that would most certainly be endangered if all those weapons did hit the streets. Unfortunately, as this show has often indicated, many of these scenarios are not black and white. There are no "good" solutions, just some that are better than others, and even that isn't an exact science, just an educated guess at the best course of action.
  11. S03.E18: This Is Now

    This was my biggest WTF. Will was - obviously - needed right where he was. How could he just up and go get Natalie's kid? I could kinda see his reaching out to Jay again after the shooter was caught and having the police track the kid down. But once it was established he and the nanny were fine, couldn't he just relay the info to Natalie so she could relax, and they'd get him later? I'm sure this is one of those little things that will never again be mentioned, though, mainly because it seems it was necessary to finally get Natalie to forgive Will's little rendezvous.
  12. S09.E20: Mother!

    At least this episode had an "explanation" for Lily's absence, although someone sending their child to visit relatives in another state a month before school ends is pretty flimsy. At this point, had Mitch and Cam announced Lily had returned to the orphanage in Vietnam, I wouldn't have been surprised. Is the actress ok? She has been virtually non-existent this season. I tried to Google her but found nothing on the subject.
  13. I dunno...on the one hand, it's good to have the characters with a solid story arc. But on the other, it's pretty ridiculous. Kendra is supposedly busy with law school, but now she suddenly has all this time and interest in managing a restaurant? And Chale was supposedly creating an app or something techy. Now he's suddenly super at restaurant management and full of great ideas, all because he worked in one for a year? And Kevin throws in freakin' $80,000 (meaning that he's making the whole thing happen, not just "helping" as Kendra kept putting it). Sorry, but if I were the one footing the project, I definitely wouldn't apologize for offering a few ideas! Especially when they make sense, like the Whack-a-Mole...Kendra acted like Kevin wanted topless waitresses or something. Then, to top it all off, Kendra throwing a hissy fit and "moving out" (because of course, having your dad's friend offer you a room out of pity is NOT "moving out") At least Chale had the sense to realize what a sweet situation he's got going on, all because of Kevin. Privileged Kendra is apparently so accustomed to getting everything she wants that she has absolutely zero appreciation for any of it.
  14. I wonder if he would respond. I just looked him up on Twitter (@RealRonHoward) and he seems very chatty, responding to all sorts of comments from people. Give it a try! I doubt he'll know any more than we do, though. It just doesn't seem like it was developed much, storywise...for instance, Opie's mother had to have been a relatively young woman when she died. Wouldn't there have been grandparents, aunts or uncles coming to see Opie? All we got was Andy's side of the family.
  15. S02.E22: Sliding Sweaters

    That's actually one of my peeves on just about every TV show! Nobody ever seems to take their street shoes off in the house, let alone not put them up on the bed. Yuck! As for the episode itself, I didn't hate it but didn't love it either. It seemed like one of those "filler" eps that shows tend to have every so often. The subject, however, I could get behind...basically no matter who you are, no matter what your life, you occasionally have the "what if" moment where you wonder how things would be if you'd chosen a different path at some earlier point. Yes, Katy indicated several times that Anna Kat had been an accident; but as she's also indicated several times in the past, Anna Kat is also her favorite kid, the one she feels is most like her. So I didn't read too much into this. As I'm sure we all have examples from real life, unplanned doesn't necessarily equal unwanted or unloved.
