  1. S04.E01: Episode 1 2018.06.17

    After the stupidity of last season, this premiere left me feeling relieved and kind of charitable towards the show. I mean, nothing could be worse than season 3. I'm a New Yorker so I'll miss the original setting but I can get on board with seeing more ocean-view LA real estate porn. Vic has a jerkiness about him but he's a good husband and willing, capable stepfather to 2 (technically 4) kids so I'll cut him a lot of slack. Plus the attractiveness factor, that too. Don't care at ALL about Noah going all Dangerous Minds on his students. Had to fast forward all those scenes. Every main character is a cretin in their own ways, but it's been three seasons of that so it's nothing new. Helen still inspires a bit of sympathy for me but that's really stretching it. Calling it now: she is the one that has the affair with the neighbor, not Vic.
  2. S03.E12 Elmsley Count 2018.06.10

    This is all the exact opposite of what we've been shown for 3 seasons of the Bobby/Wendy dynamic.
  3. S09.E22: Clash of Swords

    This episode was just awful on every level. Seasons 1-3 feel like an entirely different series. I can't believe how far this show - one of my very favorites - has fallen.
  4. In the Media

    Everwood Revival: 'There's a Real Shot It Could Come Back,' Says Greg Berlanti Kind of mixed feelings about this (judging by the excrement that was the Gilmore Girls revival), but it could be cool to see everyone together again. Probably without Chris Pratt, I'd imagine, given his schedule.
  5. S09.E21: The Escape

    I meant he loves her for some reason.
  6. S09.E21: The Escape

    My Haley endgame is no one. She is way too young and immature to even think of getting married to any of these chuckleheads. She's flighty, dramatic, and irresponsible with no career or even stable job, no independent living situation, and she just seems like a child. She hasn't really grown up since season 1, aside from a better sisterly relationship with Alex. Her preferred method of communication in a romantic relationship is throwing tantrums and waiting for the guy to come chasing after her. (Case in point, this episode: She dramatically shrieks to Arvin over the phone that she is breaking up with him and that they're over. Then at the hospital she tells Andy that she and Arvin are "complicated." No, hon, you broke up with him an hour ago, remember? That's not complicated. But of course he apologizes and tells her he loves her. For some reason.) I'd rather she not end up married (or worse, pregnant) in her early 20s. What's the rush? I mean, yes, in the real world a Haley type would lock down an older, successful guy ASAP. But this is a nice sitcom about a likeable family and that would seem mean-spirited, albeit realistic.
  7. Untreatable: Unpopular Opinions

    I'm aware. I don't agree with that particular law.
  8. Untreatable: Unpopular Opinions

    My very unpopular opinions: My favorite female characters were Corday, Weaver, and Neela. Jeanie Boulet should not have been allowed to keep working in the ER. Benton and Corday was hot, and Eriq La Salle's telling the writers to stop it based on the fact that she was white is indeed racist. Season 13 was among my favorites. I also liked seasons 14 and 15 (in addition to the early seasons). Couldn't stand the middle period where the old-timers had all left but the newcomers weren't interesting yet.
  9. All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    The birth mother said very plainly that she'd never accept Kerry's sexuality. What was Kerry supposed to do, hang around and hope that her bigoted mother gets a clue one day? Christian fundamentalists aren't exactly a flexible bunch. Kerry was right to have respect for herself and leave that mess behind. Doesn't exactly make her intolerant, and nowhere near on the level of her birth mother.
  10. S11.E24: The Bow Tie Asymmetry

    Damn that was a good episode! I find myself in the unusual position of not having anything to nitpick. I wasn't a fan of Amy/Sheldon in their first few years but they really grew on me.
  11. S09.E21: The Escape

    Haley and the professor continues to irritate me. Really he loves her? What, exactly? Her room-temperature IQ? Her Kardashian looks? Her flighty, dramatic personality? This relationship came out of nowhere and Haley went from being the fairly normal young woman she was with Andy back to being a complete dummy. She and the Brit have literally nothing in common, no chemistry (physical or otherwise), and I can't imagine what they see in each other.
  12. All Episode talk

    That's exactly how I feel about Pacey and Joey. I wasn't comparing P/J to D/J. Both were absolutely ridiculous and childish pairings, but only one was absurdly venerated by the fandom and still is (P/J, obviously).
  13. All Episode talk

    Preach it. Season 4 is my favorite but P/J was just such an eye-roll-worthy couple. They had a dramatic fight every single episode that season and always some cheesy makeup speech at the end. It was so immature and exhausting, and it always baffled me that people rooted so much for them as a couple. They were just awful together and brought out the absolute worst in each other. I never got the appeal.
  14. S11.E21: The Comet Polarization

    But Sheldon is the butt of those jokes. He's the one being made fun of. He really does assume that women don't know about comic books when really Denise was perfectly knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. How is that sexist? The purpose is that it's his established character. He's a socially oblivious asshole. Why should a show intended for adults need to have role models for children as protagonists?
  15. S09.E19: CHiPs and Salsa

    Acknowledge it how, though? To me, just showing us their hugely expensive vacations, etc. that happen so frequently for all of them is acknowledging that they're all very well-off. It's the classic advice of "show, don't tell". Same goes for Phil. They don't need to say "Phil is a very successful agent" - they show it by having him win realtor awards, referencing his many clients, and showing the multimillion-dollar house his family lives in. What more do we, the viewers, need? Cam and Mitch lived in half the duplex for most of the show, and only recently bought the upstairs floor (around the time Cam went back to work?). What's the other home they own? Their problems are fairly silly in how they're handled - Mitch switches jobs like he's playing musical chairs - but Mitch is the son of a rich CEO (who gave him the money for the house downpayment) and a practicing lawyer.
