    I love the one with the doctor who says, "Guess who just got reinstated? Well, kinda." Love that one. "I'll see you in there..."

    I found this episode boring. Every episode has the same thing: Kate expressing confusion; Stephanie talking about AJ's frustrations; Will making it very clear that he's not interested in Jasmine; and Kristine and Keith being just there. Kate continues to be a moron with her "I am just so confused. I don't know what to do because he's like, not attracted to me?" Oy. What a pathetically desperate woman. She asks him if he's interested even when she is not drinking and he says no. And gets "weird" after sex. But Kate remains "confused" and unsure of what to do. Will seems completely checked out. Good for him. I think Stephanie will stay with AJ despite her reservations. It's kind of like living in a place and staying there not because you love it there, but because of the pain in the ass it is to look for something better and then get your shit all moved and start over again in a new area. Not much to say about Kristine and Keith. I think they will stay together but they just seem to want such different things.

    I think the bladder is absolutely adorable.

    You are welcome. I can totally see AJ flipping out at clerks in stores when he doesn't get his way. Notice that he works solo as a "staffing company." I'm guess he'd be the office diva if forced to work with people and since he can't play nice he starts his own business that does not require him to work with other people. If he is a headhunter or whatever, then he is calling the shots for his clients who are likely very grateful when he finds them a job. He chose a career with limited interaction and no colleagues to deal with, and one that gets him thanks and praise because he likely can't handle life any other way. That works well when you are truly by yourself. I just don't think AJ can handle having to be considerate of the wants and needs of others but instead just lashes out at them especially if he disagrees. We see it with Stephanie's clipped "Okay," every time he gets into diva mode. He can cease to work with a difficult client if he chooses, but in a marriage it's not the same thing. I think he's happy now (in a sort of manic way) because he has a companion to chill and do things with and is getting some on the regular, but I just don't see this bliss lasting once things get more settled. I don't even think a Snickers would help.

    AJ is a big fucking baby that throws a tantrum when he doesn't get his way. He's a petulant child that by this point in his life is not about to change. The show that cramps his style so much is what got him a wife. He should view that as the price to pay for "happiness" or misery for Stephanie depending on which lens one looks through.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Maybe, but my interpretation of his facial responses was that he was bored and disinterested. As far as wanting to do something else, his father's career has afforded the 9-ish year old a pretty good life so if dad's commitment trumps his wants every so now and again, I don't see an issue with that.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    I'm a huge golf fan and during this particular tournament weekend, there are commercials showing Justin Rose (an English golfer that I like a lot) showing that he and his wife, daughter and son go to a low income school and give out books to kids so they will develop a love of reading and have books of their very own. His son is the older of the two kids and the two times they show him in the commercial he looks like he'd rather be anywhere else while the rest of the family is smiling and into it. At the end of the commercial, the family members all say, "Eagle up," and again the kid looks like it's a bother for him. I believe Justin came from a working class background. He needs to have a word with his son about privilege.

    Yep. I think this is the crux of the matter with them. Notice how Jasmine wants to tell Will what she wants and expects and he is supposed to immediately embrace and do that but any time he says something: showing her the neighborhood, saying he wants to coach and help kids, give back to the community, that he's into the librarian type (whether that's true or not, that's what he said), she puts on a look of disapproval because it's not part of her plan. She seems to think he owes it to her to discard his wants and accommodate hers in order to make her a "happy wife." I can't stand her.

    I thought it said "Financial Analyst" under his name in the show, but maybe not. I don't fully pay attention to that but I'm nearly positive it at least says finance. To me, Jasmine is very good at making Will feel inadequate so if he came into this with those feelings on his mind, they're even stronger now. Calling him a scaredy cat when he said he was afraid of heights to me was cruel and demonstrated that she has zero empathy for anything outside of her wants. She looked down her nose at his upbringing when they were in the park in his old neighborhood, then the first thing out of her mouth when coaching came up was "That doesn't bring in money." If she was a true partner, she would be talking about how to integrate his coaching-- which is of critical importance to him-- into their lives. Not Jasmine. It seems to me that since he bought a house, that his earnings enable him to coach without worrying about money, and a second house to use a rental income would contribute even more to that, but Jasmine wants more money. Her view seems to be that if you are going to spend time doing anything, it should generate money or it's not worth doing. If you notice-- and of course this could be editing but I'm not pretending to know what we did not see because frankly, we don't-- it's always Jasmine that has questions for Will. He seems uninterested in asking her questions and my guess is because he knew from the jump that she wasn't his type and he shut down. Her general approach is cold to me. There's no warmth to her or genuine interest in anything Will has to say in response to her. She asks questions with an answer that she wants to hear in mind and if she doesn't get it, she gets annoyed. No wonder he just wants to be Rip Van Winkle until this trainwreck is over.

    Will comes off as a dud because he's absolutely not into any part of Jasmine. Had they matched him with a librarian type, he would likely be a whole lot different. Will is not an engineer. He is a financial analyst which can mean different things depending on which industry he is in. I think he has been very forthcoming and clear in his answers to Jasmine's questions but Jasmine is just not liking what she is hearing. Then she tries to force the issue by doing what she expects to "flip his switch" and gets pissy when it doesn't work.

    It was at the house and after Stephanie went to bed because she was "tired." He said something very close to "Can I ask you guys a question because it's been bothering me. Are any of you upset because we're doing good?" Everyone said no and then he said, "I feel bad. But we wung it..."

    AJ's attitude was that of someone who had not seen his wife in months or something. To feel disconnected from his wife-- a person he sees every day, even if only for a few hours-- to me is bizarre. They have no kids so the exhaustion/running/crazy factor is not there for them. He is just such a big baby that throws a tantrum every time he feels put upon and does not get his way. You can see it all over his face when something begins to happen that he doesn't like. His face fills up like a rage meter, you can see it happening before your eyes. That's a built in thing. I don't believe for a minute that it's only the cameras. He's a high maintenance man baby that probably has so many quirks that we don't see on television. Someone who bugs out and has strenuous objections to a shower caddy because it makes them feel closed in has issues.

    Spot on about both Kate and Will. Again, this is exactly it. They are so desperate they are willing to looks past what should be deal breaker behavior. I don't buy it either. He has told her that this is the way he is and instructed her how to deal with it. And once again, if it wasn't for the camera, he wouldn't have a wife. I used to go to Paradise Stream one of the four Caesars resorts but never stayed in the room with the champagne glass. I remember making pizza and playing trivia and stuff. It was nice. They used to deliver breakfast to the room if you did not want to go to the dining room. You filled out a little card with a pencil and checked off what you wanted. I used to write 2 coffees and extra bacon and got it every time. Fun times. I call bullshit on that even if it makes me sound like an ogre. Any time someone is in the spotlight and doesn't want to be, they can put on the brakes by coming up with some traumatic event that makes the person questioning them feel bad. AJ has a large personality to say the least. What comes with that is diva-like behavior and a warning sign that he's cool when things are good but when he drinks or disagrees, then it gets ugly. I think Stephanie will stay with him out of desperation and spend her life walking on egg shells and saying "okay" to AJ any time he gets pissy. How anyone can live like that is beyond me. I couldn't understand that stupid comment. Reconnect? Because you've been apart for a year or more? Because you work opposing shifts and never see each other? Reconnect from what? Give me a break.

    Taking notes as I watch this morning… OMG Kate, you are a lost cause. Luke is a sicko, wacko who gets weird after sex and shuts down on her so what does she do? She continues to have sex with him. I just can’t with her. She’s inviting drama and heartache into her life and then wondering why there’s drama and heartache in her life. They’re “trending upward”? I just… no. LOL Will thinking Jasmine wants something like a new car for making him dinner. Love it! Jasmine, Will seems completely disinterested in flipping your switch. She’s surprised that Will has struggled? Everyone has struggles. The look on Will’s face before the kissing exercise was priceless. Here comes pissy AJ. This is what you signed up for, Stephanie. Have fun! She’d rather use the “I’m tired” than tell him he’s acting like an ass. Don’t worry, Jasmine, Stephanie has seen AJ like that plenty of times before and yes, he would have acted that way had she stayed around and she would have been expected to suck it up. This was a pretty boring episode. Some of the scenes were stretched out entirely too long. I thought the pottery lady was disgusting. I would not find her approach amusing and would have walked out of there.
