  1. S06.E14: All That Glitters Isn't Gold

    Tyler, with his "Fresh tracks in the brand new peanut butter....sick!" to "Rhylee doesn't want me to tell anybody but, uh, we banged last night. It's pretty special to me." is the living embodiment of Liz Lemon's doofus boyfriend, Dennis Duffy, but somehow more simple-minded. I also felt bad for Josiah. It was uncomfortable when Bruno was the semi-naked platter for sushi, but he was far more comfortable showing off his body. Josiah's discomfort was palpable.
  2. S06.E13 & E14: Tell-All

    I was surprised Asuelu made a crack about getting Larissa flowers when she arrived for the taping. It was the most wit and quick thinking he's ever shown. And what was up with that secondary studio room? The one with the faux brick wall where Ashley and Jay had their sidebar....it looked like the backdrop of a bad 90s comedy club. I was waiting for someone to break into some cheesy observational standup.
  3. S16.E05: Restaurant Wars Part 2

    As dumb as it was to have RW this early in the season, and to hire rando temps off the street who don't know what spoons are, it still wasn't as bad for me as S3 and Madonna's dumbass brother. I hated that RW. But yep, I agree with the PYKAG result, but I do wish they'd hire people with actual food service experience and drop the added "drama" of hiring people who don't have a clue for service. Since I just caught up on last week's and this week's episode, I just gotta say those swan? fixtures in the hot tub/large bath are just too much. Also, every time they show the picture of the outside of the house, I very much expect the ghosts of Robert Guillaume and James Noble to pop up on screen.
  4. All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    We have covenant marriage in Louisiana; it came in when I was in law school and was really pushed through the legislature by super conservative Christians. It bothers me for many reasons, but basically it just means that the parties pledge--and then are obligated by the state--to have counseling pre-marriage and prior to divorce and the barriers to divorce are higher. Louisiana is a no-fault state for divorce in regular marriage, but if you want to get out of a covenant one, there has to be one of a limited number of causes. However, being convicted of a felony is one of those causes, as is adultery, so there's no reason that the killer's wife couldn't get a divorce under a covenant marriage regime (at least in LA and I suspect the other 2 jurisdictions as well). There must have been slim pickings in whatever town this murder went down in because I just don't see the level of attractiveness that justified either the killer or the victim pulling in that many women.
  5. I don't know why it didn't occur to me earlier, but these CO$ compounds would be the perfect place to set up a post-zombie apocalypse safe hold, especially the ones that house all enshrined copies of LRH doctrine. Adding such a setting in may bring me back to The Walking Dead. DeVocht said that one of the high-up dudes who used to run the SeaOrg ship knew Davie was nuts but he was waiting it out until LRH returns from the dead. Apparently a lot of the long-timers, possibly including Shelly, think LRH is going to return to run the cult. This had never occurred to Leah.
  6. All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    Wholly unrelated to the case, I found the giant statue of a mastadon or mammoth to be an odd choice for the office park where the PI firm/murder scene was.
  7. S16. E10. What Child Is This?

    That scene really pissed me off and soured me on the whole episode. It was beyond bad writing. And maybe it was because I was so irritated, I don't remember them ever proving "Vicious" murdered the guy--only that he had motive. Cassie and Palmer were the only good things about the episode.
  8. S06.E11: Let Them Eat Chicken!

    ITA. And compare her to Colin from last season of BDM: he's been a ferry captain for years but never pulled the "I am a captain" card on his season. He knew he was there to learn motor yachting, and was pleasant about it. I wonder if this crew ever did the repeated fire drills like they did on the first season of BD. I kinda think if they did, we'd have seen it, but I do wonder if they have safety drills during the season.
  9. I would watch the hell out of that movie (and it wouldn't be any weirder than the Kyle Richards classic, Watcher In The Woods.) Selfish.

    Alternatively, if you're wanting to murder someone, Silver City seems like the place to set up camp! Pam Hupp might have found a new home.
  11. All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    It has been a long while since the cops in a Dateline seriously pissed me off, so it was bound to happen again sooner or later. JFC, how did the supervisor cop still have a job after his detective dropped the ball so many times? And the detective complained about the murder victim's family bugging him? Did the supervisor tell him to STFU and investigate? Didn't seem like it. Hell, if I were the DA I'd be charging most of the sheriff's department on theft of government funds because they sure as shit weren't doing their jobs when they were on the clock, and throw in some malfeasance charges where applicable. The way the crime scene was managed made the OJ murder scene look like a text book version of HOW to do it, rather than how not to do it. Ugh...so much stupid at once. And I do not understand how the murder's family ever gets custody when the victim's family has one person, even third cousin, twice removed, to raise the kids. The parents of the victim need a good custody lawyer.
  12. This is the second Bravo show this week where someone mixed up "infer" and "imply" and it is driving me insane. D'Andra's secret was a big non-starter, but Kam's text message actually brought something to the argument. (I don't think Kam's crafty enough to fake a message in the middle of a exchange thread.) LeeAnne needs to lay off the fake therapy-speak. That crap she was spewing at Stephanie was so hard to listen to without wanting to barf.
  13. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I rewound twice and it sure did sound like Jay to me as well. There was no correction.
  14. S06.E08: Ready to Run

    Ugh, I forgot I was watching 90DF and thought I was back watching Unexpected with the Steven/Olga storyline. He would fit right in with douchenozzles like Shayden and Diego. Hell, he kinda looks like Shayden. I still feel terrible for Olga though. She undoubtedly had it worse in the orphanage; a former coworker of mine adopted a child at about a year old from a Russian orphanage (and he'd be Olga's age now) and the poor kid had attachment and behavioral issues from the jump. He's finally sorted out, but that was after being raised in a fairly affluent, loving home. Olga didn't have those advantages, and yet kept her cool around dumbass Steven. I was actually hoping that the Russian government was going to bust him and deport his shit for brains self. As ridiculous as they are, I think Eric and Leida are perfectly matched: both are exceptionally delusional and unattractive (though she does have nice hair and he...does not). I swear that was not a picture of her and her ex at the wedding ceremony--it looked to me like 2 cardboard standees posed in front of the officiant. Or perhaps bad Photoshopping. But the producers have got to step it up on the "shopping for furniture" plot device. It makes no sense why Larissa and Debbie went to a 2nd hand rent to own place, nor did it make sense that Eric & Leida went to the high end place. Clearly, Rooms To Go and IKEA aren't allowing TLC to film there, and looking at Wayfair makes bad TV, so just drop it altogether already. After wasting too many hours on Say Yes to the Dress reruns this morning, I kinda want a bridal shopping show set at that boutique in Chicago; those were some elegant long-sleeved gowns Ferndanda tried on. I liked the first one the best as well, but it was damn refreshing to see a couple of gorgeous, clean-lined dresses with sleeves and not blinged out to the moon and back.
  15. Long Lost Family

    I prefer the 2 hour shows, despite the commercials, because we get much more of the story. Tonight's episode was a good example with John, the guy who found out he was adopted at nearly 50, and Wilson, his full bio brother. When they showed the grave marker at the end, we saw the parents' birth years and they would have been in their early thirties when they gave up John for adoption, and Wilson was born a couple of years later. I really want to know why they gave John up and then stayed together until the father's death. Usually when we see the stories of the bio parents having more full-sibling children, the first was born when they were in high school and the others later. But this couple was well into adulthood when they gave up the first kid and the second didn't come that much later. I really want to know what the story was there, but they didn't get into it. Surely the surviving uncle would have known if the parents had gone through a rough patch and split up for a while, or had a history of a rocky relationship or something. It was just a weird thing that is gonna bug me now. lol.
