    S01.E04: The Darker Sooner

    Actually, I have faith in Duvernay, the lady is deep, she's got this. She's going somewhere and I most definitely believe it isn't toward everything is poor Ralph Angel.

    Yes, she is a hot mess, boy does she frustrate me. Just when I would think she was actually on her way to getting her act together, she'd drop the ball.

    I do to, it makes for good story telling and I think I'm supposed to be frustrated with this aspect of his character. Still root for him, get frustrated and want to ring his ears at the setbacks, but never stop rooting for him, for all of them.

    Why should they be the only ones to have known better? Ralph Angel is a grown ass man with a son and worse he was being offered help but because he's so damn immature, he refused it and ended up throwing money down the drain. I hope I don't see those two sisters of his treating him like some baby throughout this series. Where blame is on him, it needs to be pointed out and not placed on his sisters because they are women, supposedly smarter, and older. He is a grown man with a child, he needs to take ownership of it all. He bitched about wanting to try to keep the farm, Aunt Vi asked them to listen to him, so they are giving him a chance, because no way in hell do I think they should help him farm that land. They said repeatedly that they aren't going to farm land and are not interested, and they shouldn't have to be just for Ralph Angel nor their beloved father. Those women too, have to live their lives. Ralph Angel is blowing the opportunity all on his own and making it harder than it has to be right out of the gate because he doesn't have sense enough to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge that, that cute black farmer guy offered to him. I forgot his name, but I suspect he'll be hooking up with Charlie eventually. This is not the stage of life where he should be I have to prove I can do this ALL by myself and if someone steps in and helps me, I'm going to throw/break up all my crayons and pout because someone had to help me. Clearly it's obvious that Ralph Angel is starting to annoy me. I see him as really having a lot of growing up to do and I have no patience because he has a kid. He and Blue's mother need to just get it together. She seems to be on her way and I like that she doesn't whine and throw fits like Ralph Angel seems to do. He needs to calm down, he has family, he has people that care, he has more than one roof over his head, he's not going hungry, he has a job. He has it made when you compare his situation to many who come out of prison and have to start from scratch withouy help. The young, black farmer guy offered to help him and he stupidly refused, he has to take ownership of that choice, not his sisters, because it cost him 15K, not Nova, not Charlie, Ralph Angel did that all on his own. He needs to smarten up, because his first crack at farming his father's land didn't have to start off this way. He probably didn't want to take cute farmer guy's help because he's probably jealous of the connection he had with his father and that he is a success. I can see that, but his father is gone now and no longer there, so he doesn't have to feel like he he's being compared to anyone. Because he seemed fine with taking help from the guy at work so??? Jealousy has to be at play as to why he wouldn't take the help of a long time friend/ fellow black farmer of his father's who has had success farming. The guy at work, he just met him. Just because you ask for help or rather it's information he so desperately needs doesn't make you less of a man, it makes you smart and not out of 15K for crying out loud. I think I have issues because it seems like he comes from a decent family and he might be spoiled courtesy of his father. I keep thinking about what Aunt Vi said to him about not raising Blue the way he was raised, shielded from reality and it seems like responsibility as well. However, I did like the scene with he and Nova at the end though.

    S03.E01: Light In Darkness

    LOL, the teddy bear Ted, from the movie TED, has a new role on Empire, I love it. I was waiting for that bear to say something. I can't believe Luscious pointed his fake gun fingers at the back of Jamal's head. Oh please, of course I believe it. I hope Cookie's wardrobe improves because I don't know what the hell was going on with it in this episode.

    This Is CNN (Vaulted)

    There was during the day time of course, when viewership is lower. She had the young lady, I forgot her name, but it was a young lady who she's known since her days as first lady, she was sitting right next her as she spoke. She also spoke at the convention if you can recall about when she first met Hillary, she was in the wheel chair. Oh wait, I'm not sure if I was watching CNN or MSNBC at the time, sorry. But I do know they covered it briefly during the day time on one of these channels. She talked about getting those who live with autism into the work force more. I forgot who she listed off as partnering with to help with this endeavor but she gave quite a bit of detail on this policy from what I saw.
  7. Bwaah, Rachel said she wanted to call in sick today so she could go to the Bridgegate trial, LOL.

    Vice Principals

    As a matter a fact, Russell strikes as more of someone who would commit murder or at least pay to put out a hit on someone. I thought he was capable of ANYTHING when he led in burning down Belinda's house. Gamby is the kid from school who has no strength in his core, he's a follower. He's the idiot that ends up taking the fall, yet he wasn't really the mastermind behind it all. Dummy, you can see already Russell trying to run a game on Gamby with his "you" this and "you" that bullshit, with Gamby interjecting and reminding him that it was he too that committed all the crimes right along side him.

    Her kids didn't strike me as murderers. I don't even see her filling them in on what she would deem as a huge humiliation/failure. Whoever it was they were tall, taller than even Russell, as well as heavier. Heck, it could be the Russell's neighbor across the street since Neil is the one who knocked him out cold defending Russell. He knows what his car looks like, he pulled up in front of his house in it. Although the guy didn't look as muscular as that neighbor but he sure did look to be the same height. And it would also explain why he also set Russell's car on fire too. I'm thinking it's Russell's neighbor or someone Belinda hired because they still have that damaging footage of her that they can release.

    S07.E10: Cut The Cancer Out

    Melissa is cracking me up, with her don't bring me into this shit, I'm good with her (Tre), this season. I laugh every time, looking at Melissa trying not to blow things cause she and Joe are on the inside now and I don't blame them, LOL. When she was at the Wakiles, telling Jacqueline to cut the shit and leave me alone, I'm not in this, I could not stop laughing.

    S07.E10: Cut The Cancer Out

    Tre and Nene would definitely end up punching the shit out of that uppity smart, ass mouth Bethanny. Those two could not take her mouth at all, she definitely would not be able to hide her "looking down on them" attitude. On another matter, I don't give a shit about Kathy and Rosie, they aren't entertaining and that's not Tre's fault. This to me is much to do about nothing, it's nobody's business which is how Tre wanted to keep it but, Andy wanted them on the show and he's the boss. However, Tre still has star power as far as this viewer is concerned and if she leaves I know I won't be watching. However, if the Wakiles leave I won't even notice that they are gone and Andy knows it.

    The person who shot Neil was clearly much taller than his wife's short husband, who looks much shorter than Gamby even. No way could that have been him unless this show is that bad that it thinks viewers like me don't notice huge differences in height. I'm thinking they are smarter than that because the show is on HBO, I'm hoping they are anyway. Now could he have paid someone? Maybe, but I doubt it. He admitted he was jealous to Neil and he didn't seem sinister during that convo.. Not only that, Neil ended up encouraging his daughter to take up motor cross again which actually is what the stepfather said he was trying to use to build a bond with Neil'sdaughter. He gave her his bike at the end and said go for it. So I'm seeing that whole dynamic, with the stepfather/father issue being resolved as much as anything can be resolved with immature Gamby. Besides, I've just never gotten the impression that he actually hated Neil as in wanting him out of the way. Plus I just don't get a sinister vibe from that stepfather. Quite the opposite, I get a level of maturity that Gamby lacks being that he's a man willing to admit to another man that he was actually jealous of an emotional bond that said man had with his biological child. That's something that Gamby has trouble doing. The person looked as tall as the guy that Belinda brought in to take notes on Neil and Russell at the beginning of her tenure. That guy who wore a pony tail and a suit and didn't talk, all he did was stare and follow behind Gamby.
  13. Really? Interesting, because I've only been just introduced to her via this election season. I don't live in CA, so I really don't follow their politics. It's just that she's gotten coverage in terms of down ballot races during this election season, and I took notice. Chris Hayes over at MSNBC interviewed her to some extent and that's when I thought that democrats might really have something here.
  14. I think KW majored in political science at George Washington University. I think that Kamala Harris woman, Attorney General of CA, might be the first. I can see her on a ticket, and I think that's where she's headed if not trying to get a Supreme Court appointment. She's running for that senate seat. It would be great because she's black and Asian, I believe her mother is Indian and her father is black. Something tells me she might be on the rise.

    S01.E03: Thy Will Be Done

    I'm rooting for them all as well, but aunt Vi is right, this sheltering of Blue is what apparently occurred in the raising of Ralph Angel and it isn't good. I also think being the only boy, carrying the family name, he was his father's pride maybe and had huge expectations put on him because of it, and he when he felt he couldn't live up to them, he started going in the wrong direction. Ralph Angel has a ton of growing up to do. I still can't get over that robbing of the store, it was just so stupid. I can't get it because he didn't do it because he and his child were genuinely starving and they had no home, nor food. It really pissed me off after I found out what kind of family he has. He's so immature; can he really take pride in offering his father, who is full of pride, stolen money? I mean think about it Ralph Angel, start thinking about some things. I was glad to see him get that job and the pride in his face when he clocked out, I hope he can keep it going and not fly off the handle every time things go off course or they turn out to be hard. Farming that land is going to be real hard, that's why their father stopped doing it, he was old, he didn't have the help or the money to pay for it and even though RA is young...it's going to hard. Is he going to get down on himself and just resort to old habits? By the way, is RA the youngest? Because if he is and Nova is the eldest and he and Nova have the same mother, then the father cheated maybe? Maybe that's the reason Nova said, "mother" in that tone when referring the Charlie's mother having sent the flowers. Who's the middle child Charlie or RA? Anyway, this is a beautiful work of art, this show, absolutely rich and beautiful.
