    S04.E08: I'm Not the Person I Used to Be

    I liked it. I think the "greg is different" gag went on a bit long, but I laughed at all the "rest of the series" jokes. I'm so sad that OG Greg was busy, but I'm glad they brought Greg back. I too think they will end the series with a "I choose me" situation. But how interesting that the guys around Rebecca are growing. Nathaniel has his own life now, Josh is seeing that the world doesn't revolve around him, and Greg - well, we'll see how he turns out.

    S04.E02: I Am Ashamed

    I loved The Cringe! I was sitting there having anxiety because of something dumb I said in a meeting that day and then that song comes on. I so needed that! And loved the costumes.

    S11.E02: The Ghost Monument

    I'm really liking this season so far. I think starting completely from scratch - new Doctor, writer, companions - was a good thing to do. No carry over expectations other than the Doctor be the Doctor, and she totally is! I like that so far the stories are straight forward and interesting, and the Doctor is the hero with two hearts. She's so caring but enthusiastic and silly and clever.

    S04.E02: Episode 2

    I was totally relieved as well, but because we will be spared the drama of Demelza being tempted to be with Hugh while Ross is in London. I was not looking forward to that.

    The Miniaturist

    That was horribly disappointing, for all the reasons mentioned here. Ugh! But here is a post about the gorgeousness of the clothes and sets. Be sure to click through to the link about the real dollhouse that inspired this: https://tomandlorenzo.com/2018/09/the-gorgeous-period-costumes-of-the-miniaturist/ Did anyone read the book to tell us if the Miniaturist actually got more time in the book?

    TGABS in the Media

    I feel so bad for the contestants! All the work they did and no one will see it because ABC hired some slimeball to be a judge. It's not their fault. I really hope they go up online or something so we can see all the baking.

    S03.E06: Josh Is Irrelevant

    I love the whole "This isn't about Josh" thing. The writing on this show is amazing. The character arc for Rebecca is soooooo good. And all the side characters have some lessons to learn also. Josh has always been the center of some woman's universe, Paula needs to examine her own issues, Nathaniel is realizing a lot about himself.. UGH This Show is Amazing!!

    S06.E01: Fallout

    Really not happy with the addition of the kid. Damn show, don't you know that is always the death knell? This show was skating toward more annoying than enjoyable anyway, and then they added an obnoxious kid and more Oliver man pain? UGH!

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Am I the only one massively disturbed by the Rooms to go ad with kids singing "My Stuff" to the tune of "My Humps?" All I can hear is "my lovely lady lumps". Ugh Fergie, did you really need that commercial money? And I disagree that the Amazon/Dog/Lion ad song is the worst song ever. I vote for this one, that song is horrible! https://www.ispot.tv/ad/w2FC/snhu-break-the-cycle-song-by-twin-bandit

    S07.E07: The Dragon And The Wolf

    When Sam was talking to Bran about the secret wedding, he asked Bran - Can you see it? Bran didn't look for the wedding until then and saw it. So I don't think Bran was looking for Littlefinger betrayal until Sansa or Arya asked him to.

    My read on Mileva was completely different than many of the ones above. Yes, she was miserable and hated everything, but I saw that as mental illness. I thought the writers were making it clear that she was obviously depressed, and perhaps had other mental illness, not that she was just a harpy. Being that depressed, and having her husband succeed and leave her behind, I could see that making it worse. Plus the son said mental illness ran in the family. I felt sorry for Mileva because she was so depressed and had no treatment and a husband who wasn't paying attention, and children to take care of.

    S01.E01: The Bone Orchard

    The book was hard to follow in the beginning also. But it all comes together and makes sense. Stick with it. I thought it was great. Visuals were stunning, casting is really good. Loved Audrey. I'm a huge Gaiman fan and I was not disappointed. squee!

    S10.E03: Thin Ice

    This must have been why Moff was pissed at BBC for revealing the Master in promos. Now we all know who is in the vault and there is no suspense any more. Eh, I'll still enjoy the ride. I'm loving Bill. The delight she took at walking on the Thames, at all of the Frost Fair was delightful. I'm a bit annoyed at the fact that we know the Doctor had been to that Frost Fair multiple times and this ep makes it looks like he never realized anything was wrong before. And the sonic worked on a rope? Really? But I'll forgive it because it was a fun episode. Maybe he always intended on coming back and figuring it out.

    S02.E03: Series 2 Episode 3

    Niska also had a romance, let's not forget. So they have shown both Niska and Mia to have sexual feelings for a human. Maybe for them it's more of the "I need you to love me, I need you to want me" thing than a biological sexual response. I'm going to be open about it. But that's just because I think Gunnar is super hot. ::shallow:: However, I don't see why Gunnar would want Mia back. I could see maybe if he had some time to get used to a feeling synth, but that was way too quick. He got over that whole "I have feelings for a Synth" thing pretty fast. There may be something there to be concerned about. Somehow I don't see the show giving Mia a happy relationship for long. And Leo, I think he is VASTLY underused. This should be his story more than the family's story I think. I need more of the focus to be on him. But I guess there are just too many characters.

    S01.E08: Lions in Winter

    Yeah, the love triangle - ugh. But here is one where he is being honest with Glinda. He's not hiding his love for Dorothy, he's like straight up - Sorry, Wife. She's in my blood. I like Lucas/Dorothy together so I guess I'm a bit forgiving. It was a bit unbelievable that the Ev went from one pistol to those big shotguns, but I'll go with it as they turned on the wizard. That was unexpected and cool.
