  1. S01.E01: Keep on Truckin'

    Dan is my favorite character because he is being written EXACTLY like I would expect Dan to be 20 years later. And some of his lines are the same lines he would have said 20 years ago. When Mark brought his friends over, and Joey was trying(?) to be helpful. "People die. What are you going to do?" And Dan, "Seen a little too much action in 'Nam, Joey?" Brought me right back to 35 year old Dan working in his garage.

    And that fits perfectly with Roseanne living in Lanford all this time. She knows enough people who would have a few pills laying around. OR, her friends would know people who could get her pills, and be assured that "Rosie's cool. She's lived here her whole life."
  3. All-Episodes Talk: Floyd's Barber Shop

    If you enjoy looking behind the scenes then you will enjoy this: There is a bit more to your observation watching this on television. Stage managers will be clear about, "This is a scene shot on a Saturday afternoon, so wear what you normally wear on a Saturday afternoon." But nobody listens. This is their 15 minutes (or 3 seconds) of fame, so everybody wears their Sunday best when they come in to be an extra It's just human nature. It's pretty noticeable in some of the scenes. Watch the extras in the background and you'll see it.
  4. A Million Other Reasons: Speculation

    I hope they don't go there, because it sends the message that if you have financial problems the best way to take care of your family is to kill yourself for the life insurance. Or step in front of a well-insured bus. But I don't think they will pull that. The writers are being too careful to set Jon up as this big hero because he "planned for everybody. . . Even me!" I think they are actually placing him on that high pedestal to set him up for a fall (double meaning intended).
  5. S03.E03 Cheaters Sometimes Win

    The difference between the way they are writing Taylor and the way they are writing Trip is that Trip is likeable and Taylor is just dumb. You are right. If Oliver has a character flaw, it's latching on to one bad role model after another and taking it to the extreme. (I'm thinking of @floridamom 's buddy, George Hamilton). But Oliver would have never done anything as obvious as handing in a store-bought item.
  6. S02.E04: A Financial Secret and Fish Sauce

    In a way, this is the writers doing a good job of writing about real life. When we see a little old lady at the grocery store, we WANT her to be a sweet old lady, but if you ask her family they might tell you much different. Some of might project this on to Meemaw. We WANT her to be a great Meemaw to Sheldon, but in a way, she may be as responsible for his problems as anybody else. Or, as George said it, "Grandma's are supposed to be nice! What went wrong with you?"
  7. S01.E02: Band of Dads

    I agree, and would take it one step further by saying that they are flirting with being saddled with a flawed premise. Some of us may have to avoid this show if they drift too far into, "Jon had this master plan all along, and how great that the plan is coming together!" I especially think about his kids. Now matter how great this plan seemed to be, they will be forever damaged by Jon's suicide.
  8. All Episodes Talk: All Rise

    Byrd had been a real-life bailiff for Judge Judy back in her family court days. He moved on to another job since then, but when he saw she was offered a TV show, Byrd sent her a letter of congratulations and added, "If you need a bailiff, by old uniform still fits." The rest is history.
  9. All Episodes Talk: All Rise

    I wonder exactly how much Byrd gets paid to be on the show.
  10. S01.E02: Band of Dads

    Rome's story is a bit more complicated, and if you've been "in the business" you can appreciate what he is going through. I do lighting and work with directors every day. I'm lucky because I know when I will work and how much I will get paid. But Rome-- Rome never knows when he will find work or how much he will make. Think of it like this-- you remember your last job interview or your last blind date? Every time Rome starts a new project it's like going on a job interview or first date. Imagine doing that over and over. That is Rome's life right now.
  11. S03.E02 Here We Go Again

    This is where I hope the show eventually goes with Cooper. Him discovering that sometimes the simple pleasures are even more enjoyable than the extravagant ones.
  12. S01.E02: Band of Dads

    The writers may agree with you, and never give us the specific reason. Why? Because then his suicide is a big Rorschach test for all of the characters. Four people who have four different theories as to why, will have four completely different reactions to the day to day events that happen over the next few weeks or even years.
  13. S03.E02 Here We Go Again

    "It's not just any cheese, it's Kraft Sing-glay!" "Kraft Singles!" And did anybody else catch the double meaning of the car being given to Taylor? "Isn't it great? It's a Mini-Cooper!"

    Sorry, Not4me, I couldn't resist.
  15. S11.E24: The Bow Tie Asymmetry

    John Ross Bowie is one of those people who, as they grow older and more comfortable in their own skin, get better looking with age
