    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    Re: "Consumed"... Of course I am upset and horrified by that former fatso (I say as a fatty) killing his wife of 36 years, but there is a special place in hell reserved for someone that would also kill the family dogs that they professed to also "love" so much. I'm not always sure how I feel about forgiveness, but I think he only had remorse because he was caught, personally, and I hope his sons, even if they forgive him at some point, choose to never associate with him again for the duration of his pathetic life.

    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    I remember the show about Chelsea has been on before, because I remember some discussion about it, but it's the first time I've seen it. Her friends were appalling. I'm sorry, but they LEFT without her? And one of them had her PHONE????? What the pixellated hell? cooksdelight, btw, thank you for the story about the lip sore: It was all I could see when they showed that guy LOL. Agree, what was that anyway? It almost looked like a boil or cyst of some kind... must have been painful.

    The Great Kiwi Bake Off

    Yes, I noticed they didn't really call the slices "showstopper".... I'm missing having all three rounds of competition, too. But I really like these bakers. They're just as fun and nice as the UK and Aussie bakers. So happy for this!! Especially since I think it's a couple months until Masterchef (UK) The Professionals. :)

    The Great Kiwi Bake Off

    ElectricBoogaloo, I haven't had a chance to watch this yet, so I'm reading your posts but I have to say this..... THESE are showstoppers? Am I just spoiled by how good some of the UK bakers are?? At any rate, will be watching the first two episodes over the weekend so I can get a feel for the Kiwi bakers.....

    S05.E22: Jake & Amy

    Mr Monkey and I just finished a B99 binge because it's a couple months before the show's back. I hardly ever like romantic pairings on sitcoms, because they always seem so contrived, forced and ratings-focused. But I HEART Jake and Amy and love the way they seem like a real couple. The only thing that bothered me about the quickie wedding was that Jake and Amy didn't get their parents there, or Charles didn't, when he said give me half an hour. I'm thinking it didn't matter (?) because they were going to go to city hall, but it bugged me a little bit anyway. And I'm seriously wanting to get to know Amy's brothers. I mean, we had a whole episode devoted to one of Jake's half sisters. I LOVE Charles, but agree with Ceindreadh regarding the obsessiveness vis a vis Jake. That needs to be dialed back, more like when Charles first adopted Nikolaj and seemed to be slightly less invested in Jake, which was fine with me. They can still be best friends; I think it's interesting that they ARE bffs, because they are so different from each other. So in summation: keep giving us the Jake and Amy; more Holt, Kevin, and Cheddar the Dog; more of the minor players, from time to time. They're a great ensemble. I will miss Gina if she's NEVER on the show, so even though I know she said she's not going to be regular, I do hope she drops by from time to time. If she can be nice to Amy.

    The Apprentice [UK]

    I always enjoy watching this Apprentice because it reminds me that there are jerks in the UK as well. From watching the UK Masterchefs, GBBO, etc., they're always so much startlingly nicer than American contestants on our shows, that it's embarrassing. But here, on Apprentice UK, you can see that there are a-holes everywhere. As an American, it's reaffirming to see that. Meanwhile, I want to now see a project manager go home, please. I can think of a couple of times the PM should have gone when Lord Shugah sent home just a regular player; in fact - and please keep in mind I can't remember hardly anyone's name yet, except Keodie, and I'm not sure I'm spelling that correctly - but the PM for the winning team, with the piercing? I was surprised Sugar and the gang didn't give her a harder time about obviously trying to marginalize Keodie. And then she effed up with the sports equipment guy by only caring about cost. She's lucky they won the challenge, but not many of these guys are impressing me so far...

    S11. E08. Chalk This Way

    There's no one that I actively, really hate this season except for Christian and Cleen - LOLOL!! Seriously, at least Nunez can finally get his pet, Cleen, a win, because you know that's where we're headed. Tiffer is probably the best one on the show, anyway, so even though he's connected to Cleen, the benefits are two-fold: maybe if Cleen finally gets a win, we'll be done with him, and the best artist (Tiffer) would have won, so victory. The artist that went home this week (is that Angel?)... I kept seeing Rachel Dratch doing an SNL sketch as a competitor on InkMaster so she was distracting for me. Sorry to see her go though because we're already down to only one woman left. I realize it's a male-dominated profession, but I have a hard time believing there are no good female artists out there. I mean, we've previously SEEN some on this very show.

    I don't care for Shonee, either, based on the laziness factor that we have both seen and heard about from herself, even. On the whole, I'd rather Shonee win than Benji, so winner, already??? Of the remaining four, I am still rooting for Shane, but I just don't see it happening, but I DO believe that if Shonee is final two with either Shane or Sharn, she may not have a chance. Brian against Shonee, though, Shonee would probably take it. I don't like that her "occupation" is pro skater's wife... i mean why not just stay at home mom or housewife, or, if she has a career or job, whatever her career IS instead of "hanger on." Maybe that's an American thing, sorry; so it could just be me feeling that way. Also, yeah, the "so far I haven't done anything" and then later on, after merge, when she and Fenella were upset because someone didn't cook breakfast for them... come ON. I'm actually not watching the show at all anymore, just the last couple minutes to see who is eliminated, so thank you all for coming here to post so I kind of know what's still going on. Shout out to TVbitch !!!!

    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    I think it was a "courtesy" that they let her talk with her son by herself and without recording it, because I think they maybe thought that, as a corrections officer, she might decide to convince him to do the right thing. My theory is that he DID tell her he did it, and then at the trial she decided to tell that and spin it with, but he said it was an accident. Look, I don't hate her or anything... law enforcement was stupid, possibly, to think that her being a CO would override her being a mother. On the other hand, his dad bugged the shite out of me: the text "have you got the money yet" and then I couldn't see the entirety of Isaiah's reply, but it was something to the effect of "...she or her..." which I interpreted as the victim (Sorry, her name is escaping me)... and yet his father was okay that he was borrowing money from a young girl who was both going to school and working herself, so that he (the father) could have HIS money back. Meanwhile, the guy owed her $600 and had already stolen another $300 from her. Whatever was going on with the kid/former boyfriend, it's clear he had rounded the corner away from good kid. If dad was putting the screws to him, I do not think it's that far a stretch to have resorted to murder, especially if he probably asked her if he could borrow more money and she either said she couldn't afford to lend him any or just said no outright. The blue towel was a pretty good coincidence, not to mention his friend who knew something was not right... the missing gun, all the money borrowed, thefts... I know that does not add up to murder, but yeah, I think they got the right guy, too. Won't be surprised if he does get another trial, though... ETA: Agreed, WalnutQueen ... there is no way I would talk to the police either. Am always shocked when people continue to talk with them, in fact. Let them work the case to the best of their ability, but don't let them lie to and intimidate you into something. You have the absolute right not to incriminate yourself.

    YES, TVbitch !!! I am watching Celebrity right now. I meant as far as Australian reality shows. I tried watching The Block and couldn't get into it. And I really liked this Survivor, at first. :)

    I guess I can say it now: Aw, Steve... I kind of enjoyed his calm stoicism. They're letting Shonee run things like they did Benji before; or that is how it appears to me. I'm actually surprised the Champions haven't banded together to get rid of the last two Contenders, but Brian may think or realize he can't win against Shane or Sharn (with the jury, I mean)... I don't know. Thank the tv gods this is almost over... I can't quite quit it but I'm not interested enough the past few weeks to watch anything but the last few minutes.

    Re: A Deal with the Devil... I don't know about anyone else, but for some reason, it totally chaps my ass when cops and then even FBI agents talk about how a serial killer is the most intelligent person with whom they've ever come in contact. Like, even if he IS, don't say it because you know that self-centered asshole is just eating that shit up if he's watching it in prison. For me, the serial killer-ness overrides the intelligence to the point intelligence should not ever be mentioned again in conjunction with that person. Kaysi's mother bugged the heck out of me also, but it started for me when they talked to her the first time and she started THEN voicing all her concerns, like her freaking daughter had been missing for months, jerkwad was unaccounted for for days but she never contacts the police or even her ex-husband, the girl's FATHER, to voice any of this until they drag her in. Unless she's brain dead, she had to be suspicious for years, if not months, at least, but never said anything. And if she "worked" at the "ranch", how could she not know what was going on with funds, money and from whence they came?? I didn't buy her grief one bit.. and like most of you, I was actually kind of incensed when she told him she forgives him because she knows Kaysi would have forgiven him. Like how do you know? You were going to drag her to the police station on his insistence that she was using again, when she told you she was NOT, and she hadn't been for a while. UGH. Re: Jonestown. This was actually on not too long ago, and I, too, was a teenager when it happened, but I remember having nightmares for a while. I was also a big fan of Leo Ryan's because, for some reason, I was interested in California politics, and they had all the best liberals, back in the day. Jim Jones was NOT a "socialist"... he was pretending to be a socialist but he was a delusional megalomaniac who thought he was god.
