  1. S02.E10: Trust No One

    ...and I'm walking away from this season just as frustrated and enraged as I felt after season 1. Oh, and cynical. Let's not forget cynical. I wonder if it would have made a difference if Brendan's case had made it to the supreme court, unbalanced as that institution now is. On the upside, I was completely tranfixed watching Kathleen Z. doing her thing. Can't imagine how Barb will handle it if Bobby and Scott are revealed as involved in Teresa's death. That phone conversation she had with Steven (with an enraged Scott chiming in) a couple episodes ago was pretty harrowing. I hope the thread starts getting more responses. I need people to help me process this but can't get friends/family to watch.
  2. MST3K In the Media

    What you said--that's the one I'm most excited about!
  3. Hee! I couldn't sell off my tickets (see above), but did get a couple of friends signed on to accompany me to tomorrow night's show in New Haven. Like yours, mine also don't know the extent of my nerdishness/MST3K obsession. These two are about to find out. Not sure if I'll mention that I'm planning to adopt two kittens from the same litter who (if I get two brothers as opposed to brother/sister) will be named Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank. I'm also wondering how the riffing will roll out. Hoping there'll be a bonus short or something, like Mike & Co. have at the Rifftrax live shows.
  4. Thank you for clearing this up for me. I had the t.v. on but was in the kitchen, so only heard the audio of this ad and was like, "What the hell? He HAS to be dead."
  5. Oh, no. NO. I didn't even have to watch one second of the video to know exactly what this shit was because it's burned into my synapses. This spot ran incessantly when I was a preteen (you know: a tagalong tomboy making a scene). My brother and I are the same number of years apart as the creepy brother and his sister in the ad, and we both found it excruciating. My mom, however, thought it was adorable and charming and liked to remark that the commercial reminded her of us!? I wish I could say she was being blisteringly sarcastic, but no, she was completely, cluelessly serious. I'm happy to report that I was never homecoming queen, nor did I spend any meaningful life moments in McDonald's with my brother leering at me. Thus began my lifelong hatewatch of all McDonald's ad campaigns. My brother, after graduating from Tisch, became . . . a producer of t.v commercials. In his long and illustrious career, he's never had a hand in anything this hideous.
  6. My sad tale: As soon as the Live Tour tickets went on sale, I bought three for the October 13th New Haven Show (closest to where I live, but still about 45 minutes away). Perfect 13th birthday gift for my older son, I thought. His little brother (age 7) loves watching classic MST3K reruns on Pluto, so I couldn't leave him out. Got my best friend to get 'em at the box office because she lives in the next town over. Done, and done! Then, and only then, did I actually take a closer look at the movie being riffed. I'm usually an extreme vetter of anything my kids are going to see, but I was sure--based on the "for all audiences" classification of the live show--that this would be fine. For some reason, I also had the idea that The Brain was a goofy 1950s sci-fi joint. But it isn't. At all. A Nightmare on Elm Street-esque horror thing in which there's a (albeit cheesy) matricide/suicide in the first five minutes may be hee-larious for me, but for my kids? Hard pass. So now I've got three tickets I need to unload at face value. They're listed in the usual places, but here be true fans, so I figured I'd let you guys know. PM for the particulars, and mods, I hope this is okay?.
  7. S01-03 Catch-Up: Spoiler Free Discussion

    Just popping in to say how shocked I am to have become addicted to this show so quickly. I'm midway through season 2 and am failing miserably in my determination not to binge! It may well be the classiest soap opera I've ever watched (take that, Downton Abbey). Also, I'd kill for Anna's dress wardrobe, not to mention her tiny waist.
  8. S08.E07: Italian Week

    I also wondered why nobody was using parchment. I prepare the pizza on the parchment and deposit both on the super-hot stone. Bake, slide parchment and pizza off the stone, and we're in business! I was meh on Italian Week. Or maybe just frustrated by it because there isn't a chance in hell to get decent (or any) sfogliatelle where we live.
  9. S08.E06: Pastry Week

    Wow. I was livid when I watched a documentary about what happened w/Franklin, Crick, and Watson a few years ago. I thought it was a worldwide thing that she wasn't credited for her contributions; now I find out that no, it may well have only been here in America that she was basically eradicated from history. Nice. And yup, my bio texts--both high school and college levels--were all Crick & Watson. On topic: We were thrilled when Liam won Star Baker. He's adorable; all youthful exuberance and just the right amount of sass in the face of Hollywood. Was a bit surprised when he decided to mold his pastry the "traditional" way after all, but it worked out for him in the end, so yay!
  10. S08.E03: Bread Week

    Yes! I keep expecting someone to find one of her hairs baked in, since they can fall out of the front of your head just as easily as the back. I host an Airbnb where I bake for guests, and I'm obsessive about tying back my hair and making sure there are no stray strands on my shirt before I get started. Shedding in food is a personal nightmare of mine; finding a hair in my food would be enough to put me off a restaurant forever.
  11. S03.E08: Biscuits

    PM'd you! :)
  12. S01.E08: Milk

    Heeee--I saw what you did there!
  13. S01.E08: Milk

    Yup, I noticed the side-eye there, too; I even rewound and watched her expression again. She was starting to get Amma's number.
  14. S01.E08: Milk

    Heh, that's a term recovering victims of narcissists use; FMs really do live up to the name, though! On topic: I also had issues with the construction of the show. Still, I thought they captured the mood of Wind Gap perfectly.
  15. S01.E08: Milk

    Me, too--but I was momentarily taken out of the scene by the fact that Camille wasn't recycling.
