    The Umbrella Academy

    What I've been left wondering about is all the children that Reginald did not adopt. Are there 30+ super-powered people out there with no training in their gifts? Are they secretly heroes or villains? Did they have no powers and he knew that which is why he never sought them out? I want to know about them!
  2. I am so happy Olivia Colman won! I kind of love her and want to be her when I grow up.
  3. I am more than a little upset by this particular Green Book win since the filmmakers did not even check with Mr. Shirley's family about its accuracy.
  4. Finally! An Oscar nominated song that is actually sung by the people who did it in the movie. "Shallows" should win just for doing this.

    Deadly Class

    The one thing I don't understand is that the headmaster seems motivated by the desire to make the world a better place, even if it requires a little murder along the way. So why does he teach kids like the Dixie Mafia or other gang affiliates whose message isn't so pure or motivational? I suppose you could just say he needs to keep the school funded somehow in order to find the pearl amongst the swine, but those are a lot of swine he's teaching along the way.

    S03.E12: Chidi Sees the Time Knife

    I am so curious as to what this entails. Are they bees with penises? Are they bees that make hives in penises? Are they tiny, flying penises? So. Many. Questions.
  7. He really loves Halloween?
  8. I really enjoyed Green Book, but felt bad about the win since Don Shirley's family is saying it's not true. They supposedly weren't even contacted to verify the information.

    S02.E10: Quarantine

    Yes, to all of this. TV getting diabetes wrong has been my major pet peeve recently because it spreads so much misinformation. There is no way they would keep giving that man insulin without having someone certified check his blood. He could be lying. He could have moved a sticky glazed doughnut off one of the seats in the emergency waiting room and had residual sugar on his fingers when (if) he took his blood test. Maybe Sean gave him the wrong type of insulin (fast acting vs. long acting) due to the buzzing light fixture. Whatever the reason, I can't see someone going from 650 to a hypoglycemic passing out reaction that quickly. It would have made more sense to say he was hyperglycemic with the information given. Check him for ketones! I hope they explain this in January. Side note: I've always wanted to see a medical show tackle the concept of insulin anorexia (I can't remember the medical term). When I was much, much younger, not only did my doctor talk to me about it, but there were some articles I read about how teen girls would not take their insulin for long periods as a way to lose weight, despite the damage it was doing to their organs. It's definitely a new take on the usual story.

    I'll admit it, I have no sympathy for Beck. She's an awful person. Some might say flawed, but my vote is throw her on the trash heap and be done with her. Beck is always so "woe is me" and it's other people's fault she acts like she does, but in the end I don't think it's terribly much to realize that sleeping with your therapist is a bad idea. I would be more upset if Joe were stalking Kate (?) because at least Kate appeared to be an honest representation of herself. I think they stacked the deck to force the audience to sympathize with Joe by making Beck so intolerable. It's not like I'm "Yay, Joe!", but more like, "Oh, God, can we please get rid of Beck?"

    S01.E02 Let This Mother Out

    Harry = Siri. The ladies are too lazy to read up on the subject, so they just ask their phone...er, Whitelighter. I definitely see the problem with having a male advisor with the whole female empowerment angle, but I also see why they couldn't put a woman in that position because of the whole recently dead Mom thing. They might be less likely to listen to a woman they subconsciously felt was replacing their mother. The obvious answer would be a (potentially evil) child mentor! Like the girl in the White Room in Angel.

    S08.E06 Return to Murder House

    The last "current" event was the three witches walking into the bunker to resurrect their three dead sisters (Mallory, Coco, and Adina). Since then, it's been flashbacks.

    These episodes have been flashbacks to how Michael reached the point where he could end the world.
