    Junior and Diane, at least to me, have always been book smart (though Diane is probably the sharpest). Jack isn't that smart, but he does gave charm and talent. Zoey I've always taken to be rather average academically. Of course, I haven't seen every episode of Black-ish so maybe I missed something. I just remember some of the tidbits over the years, like Bow wanting to influence Diane into following her into medicine, thinking she had the best chance at making it of all the kids, her thinking Zoey needed to marry good, Junior getting into some really good colleges, and Jack being pretty clueless. I might be wrong, but that has been my impression of the Johnson kids talents and intelligence. I don't think Zoey is a dummy, but as the past episode implied, she is probabpy not exceptional, which is fine.

    I think it would be interesting if Zoey ended up in a unglamorous, not particularly esteemed major or career-teaching, nursing and social work come to mind as examples-but finds them rewarding. It would be a realistic outcome that doesn't happen to often on tv, but I for one would love to see it. Could open it some good character development for her. I just hope they don't try to convince us that Zoey is ,say, destined to become a doctor like her mom. I don't care how much Dre likes to kiss Zoey's ass, but Junior and Diane are the smart ones in the family.

    I find it interesting that David supposedly called this woman a child molester. So this random lady he doesn’t really know and also Nathan...huh, does David have some kind of sixth sense for child molesters? Or is this a classic case of projection for ol’ UBT?
  4. Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    Yeah, I find it hard to believe that between Jenelle, Lurch and the fact that Nathan has been on tv for a while now, that something as huge as him raping a child when he was a teen would’ve been kept under wraps for so long. Plus, one would think if this was true, that Nathan would’ve been more cautious all along, not kicking the hornets nest called Jenelle and UBT. I want a little more then the Eason’s and some unamed rando’s word before I believe this.
  5. Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I am truly beginning to believe that UBT is nothing but a closet case in severe and hateful denial. Everytime I've seen a person this over the top hateful and homophobic, it was usually because they were pissed at the fact they were attracted, deep down, to their same sex. I actually hope ol'Dave stays in the closet, though. I wouldn't want to inflict him on some decent gay guy.
  6. Kailyn: Kail Smash!

    I wondered about Javi and his gym. If he reenlisted as Active duty, I wondered where he'd find the time to run a gym enough to profit off of it. Then I consider that he might have a business partner or two who will run the business while he does his Airforce career. I think it's an iffy business, but I hope it works for him, if only so Kail gets more pissed off.

    I mean, I'm sure that Xelaya is a very advanced planet, and that Xelayans are a very proud people who may, in general, look down on other species and are xenophobic. That doesn't mean every single one of them are intellectuals, since they do have people working in non-acdemic/ scientific jobs, like the police and the Kitan's groundskeeper. It's really hard to tell, since we know so little about their society outside of the Kiran family. It could be the have a sort of caste system, with people like Alara's parents at the top, they could be very isolationist or xenophobic, maybe Xelayans are in general scared or uncomfortable with the super strength the get by leaving the planet so most stay put, or any number of possibilities. I hope, if it gets expanded on, it will have a more complex explanation.
  8. S02.E03: Home

    I think Alara's parents only represented the intellectual elite of Xelaya, and it probably isn't a good idea to judge the general Xelanayn attitudes on theirs. Apparently not every Xelanayn is a genius intellectual, so assumingly their are average Joes out their who don't have doctorate's.
  9. Kailyn: Kail Smash!

    Does Vee sell cosmetics? I just know she got her cosmetology license and was advertising her services for weddings and other events in a few different states. Which, combined with her and Jo's smart investments in real estate, is a hell of a lot better move then any shitty "business" venture then any Kail has thought it. Even Javi's somewhat iffy CrossFit venture has more potential then Kail's stupid ghost-written books and Pothead hair products. For all that Jo and Javi have "used" her, they have seemingly been much smarter with their TM earnings then she has. I find it really sad that so many smart, ambitious people have to go into debt for a college education, but she easily paid for s degree that she is letting go to waste.

    Having a child on the spectrum and having worked with children on the spectrum, I know that autistic children have different levels of functioning. I'm not sure how else to describe something that I have observed to be true. Some autistic people are much better able to communicate and socialize then others. I certainly am not trying to silence autistic people and or minimalize them. The CEO seemed highly functioning to me because he can talk and respond in conversations, but his social skills seemed like that of an autistic person to me. Just my observation.
  11. Kailyn: Kail Smash!

    I guess with Jo she is implying that he might've used his TM money and exposure to help build his business and get licensed. To which I say So fucking what, bitch?! Because Jo, Vee and Javi (with his gym) want to possibly do something positive for for themselves and invest in their and the kids' futures, that is using her? She can go get bent. Jo is being a hell of a lot smarter then Kail is, by using his TM windfall to build a stable life outside of the spotlight. She needs to take her unemployed boytoy and just disappear into her next money pit mcmansion.

    I look young to, so I do get it lol. Maybe it is more of a sign of my just about hitting my mid-30s and everyone under 25 is starting to look super young to me lol. Getting old, I guess.
  13. Good Trouble

    I would bet the CEO was a high functioning Autistic person, maybe with savant syndrome (like Sean from The Good Doctor). Maybe HR knows this and is overly protective of him. Will be interesting to see were they go with him. Having only watched a few episodes of the Fosters, I found this pretty good. It seems surprising realistic as a depiction of fresh college graduates entering the work force. Though the fact both girls, especially Callie, look so young took me a bit out of the story. Callie just looks like such a baby compared to the two other young people she works with, makes me wonder if she raced through college and law school lol. And Mariana needs to learn to keep her nose down while quietly developing her ideas.

    Honestly, if a woman stays with a man hoping he will change for her, that is on her. As they say, when someone tells you who they are, believe them. Waffling to me is as good as saying No, I don't want x, y,z. I don't think society should pressure men to settle down more then it should be teach women to value themselves and not settle for less.
  15. Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I think women not being able to be SAHM has way more to do with the economic reality of these times rather then social pressures. It just isn't feasible for many families to have one parent at home. These TM fools get to do it because they of their miracle six figure incomes. As for men (and women!) not wanting to settle down these days...I think that has much less to do with feminism and again, more to do with the reality of these times. Mind you, people settling down in the past had a lot to do with societal pressure, rather then people purely wanting a family. People who didn't necessarily want to be married or have kids didn't always feel they had the option to stay single, as a lot of people would consider them odd or weird. Which led to unhappy, dysfunctional families a lot of times. These days, by not rushing into marriage and kids, young people who do get married are actually divorcing less then their baby boomer parents. I think this is a vastly preferable outcome to what it was in the past, my opinion only.
