  1. S04.E09 Episode 9

    How fitting that Alison the eternal victim dies as a literal victim (of a homicide). I'm not sorry to see her go. Her constant "everyone is against me" way of going through life got tiresome very quickly. And all the things she did have an active role in were just vile: cheating on Cole, playing a part in breaking up Noah and Helen's marriage, cheating on Noah, lying to Noah about Joanie's paternity, abandoning Joanie for six months, fighting Cole and Luisa for custody, the list goes on. Alison was a horrid, miserable person. I feel bad for Cole, Joanie and even Athena. But I'm glad we'll never have to see her "woe is me" POVs anymore.
  2. S04.E07: Episode 7

    I've hated Martin since the first ten minutes of the pilot for that sociopathic suicide prank. No normal person would do that to their parent. I guess it was a good sign that the Solloway family was fucked up even if it looked pretty on the surface.
  3. S04.E07: Episode 7

    To be fair, if my sons were even half as obnoxious and exhausting as Martin and Trevor, I too would latch onto the first sane, polite kid who took an interest in my work.
  4. S04.E07: Episode 7

    Not a bad episode. I hate all the characters I've seen her play, but I do think Maura Tierney is a very good actress. She adds a certain gravitas. So I liked her half of the episode. The neighbor chick is such a ditz that her whining about her late-20s existential crisis was very tiresome to listen to, but painfully realistic. Had to fast-forward most of Noah's scenes because I just don't care about him. It was delicious karmic punishment for him. He threw away a 20-year marriage and family life with 4 kids to chase some overly dramatic waitress...and this is his just deserts.

    At this point I'd be fine with Luisa getting sole custody of Joanie. She's an ocean of sanity and responsibility compared to Joanie's flaky dumb biological parents. Add me to the list of people baffled at how Cole and Allison can just drop everything to fly across the country because of their precious fee fees. Damn, Tim Matheson has really aged. He'll always be John Hoynes and/or evil Trevor in the excellent A Very Brady Sequel. I more or less cheered when Helen told Allison to stop being the eternal victim. Long overdue. I wonder how much of the airplane scene actually happened, and how much was just Allison's unstable POV.

    Kind of makes perfect sense that a woman showrunner explores how much men just won't do emotional labor.
  7. S04.E05 Episode 5 2018.07.15

    So apparently no one can just keep it in their [married] pants on this show. Ugh. Just disgusting. Cheaters are pretty much the lowest of the low for me and this show actually does a bang-up job of illustrating why. Cowardly, weak, selfish idiots. That being said, good episode. Really enjoyed Vic's point of view, that was fresh. And for all of its fundamental sleaziness, Gabriel and Nan's story was a poignant one.
  8. S04.E03 Episode 3 2018.07.01

    I think that honor goes to Abby Lockhart on ER...also played by Maura Tierney. She's certainly been typecast as a dour wet blanket.
  9. 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.

    This is all the exact opposite of what we've been shown for 3 seasons of the Bobby/Wendy dynamic.
  11. 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.

    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.
  13. S09.E21: The Escape

    I meant he loves her for some reason.
  14. 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.
