    The Other Two

    Plus, by them calling it out by name, you also got Molly Shannon saying she hadn't seen it, with the addition that Cary sat watching the mom and Brooke watch it.

    Kids Baking Championship

    I had written Paige off as having too much frosting, but when you looked at the slice from the side, there was very very little frosting on top, which offset that center section having a lot of frosting. But I agree. I wasn't wowed by any of the finale cakes.

    Kids Baking Championship

    Agree with both of these points. I don't know if it was the edit or what, but Davis just never seemed genuine. It seemed that he was always aware of how he looked, and it was a bit off-putting. (I wonder if that may be because of his age--13 is a rough age.) He definitely has his basic baking skills down--he consistently got things baked faster than everyone else--but I don't know that he always had the baking touch (I feel like Meadow may have had more consistent bakes in terms of flavor and actual bake, but I'd have to rewatch). His decorating skills are obviously far and away ahead of everyone else, but I like that the best tasting cake won. Except that this is the format of TONS of competitions--not just Food Network competitions, but Great British Baking Show, but sports. You win to get to the finale. And then hope that you have a good day.

    Paige reminds me the travel host, Samantha Brown. Davis definitely deserves to win, though I won't be happy about it. He just grates on me. I'm annoyed Meadow didn't win this past week, as she had a better bake and didn't put something unappealing on the plate. Davis would've won points with me if he had realized his ice cream wasn't working.

    Kids Baking Championship

    I liked Madison and was sad to see her go, though it was certainly a bad week for her. She managed to do chocolate and peanut butter OK a few weeks ago, even though that isn't what she wanted. It didn't seem like she was trying this week. Davis's monkey looked really good on the table when he made it, but standing up, it looked...not great. I think part of it is that proportionally (compared to the "volcano") it was huge. And the head looked weird. He's the one to beat, even if he's my least favorite.

    S03.E06: A Coburg Quartet

    Leopold clearly knows what's up with Feo; hopefully next episode, he'll confront Albert about what an idiot he's being. And ugh, I couldn't care less about the duchess and Joseph. It'd be nice if they gave a reason for us to like Joseph, other than him frustrating Penge, who is also annoying. But as is, Joseph is an idiot and deserves what's coming to him. I do feel bad for the duchess, though.

    I need this in gif form. Agreed. Davis is very talented, but he also really lucked out getting goat cheese; that was probably the easiest of the ingredients. He also just annoys me, even though I know he's quite good. Maybe if he stopped with the over-the-top surprise whenever he's complimented.

    Say Yes To The Dress

    I think the problem with the "Northern Edition" for me is that I feel like that's just what normal bridal dress shopping would be. (Also, the store seems REALLY odd--almost like a pop up. It just feels temporary.) It's almost like watching brides trying on dresses at David's Bridal. The dresses are fine, but it's just not as interesting to see someone trying on more "normal" dresses.

    S03.E01: Uneasy Lies The Head That Wears The Crown

    I got the feeling it was changing careers--they'd run a shop (?) together. Or something. She'd still be working. But yeah, it'd be quite a change from dressing the Queen.

    S11.E07: Kerblam!

    Yeah, I had that issue, too--I got the feeling that getting a Kerblam package was something special, but that means that it can't really also be as ubiquitous as Amazon deliveries. I didn't think this episode was particularly hard on Amazon; it was a knock on automation, but it could've come down a LOT harder on the many problems that Amazon has that have nothing to do with automation. As far as the blood pressure meds, I assumed that was because at that moment, it was an emergency, so the Doctor's heart rates were up.

    S20.E32: Live Evictions #10; Head of Household #11

    You'd think that a double eviction Thursday would mean they need to compress the Sunday and Wednesday shows, to eliminate what we normally see in the first 15 minutes of the Thursday show--we can't have the recap of the post-veto maneuvering that we usually get. I mean, they probably WON'T. But they should.

    S20.E32: Live Evictions #10; Head of Household #11

    I was distracted by how small his face is compared to how big his head is. It was like--tiny little face with a lot of empty room around it.

    S20.E31: Power of Veto #10

    I don't mind the Tyler/Angela showmance, mostly because it does seem like they both actively resisted it and it doesn't seem to be clouding their games too much. I wonder how much other people are actively trying to come in when they know it's just the two of them in the HOH room, and when it's just "I'm bored, I'll go hang out there."

    S20.E30: Head of Household #10; Nominations #10.

    I don't know if the edit was meant to show JC as the mastermind--or someone who THINKS he's the mastermind. I really wish we had more talking heads from Brett about JC, but Brett immediately telling Tyler what was going on and Tyler's push-back of JC from the last episode and then tonight show that JC isn't the powerhouse he thinks he is. They all seem pretty done with him. I was annoyed that they didn't have a clock showing how long the comp took.
  15. My understanding is that other than watching the comp DVDs that the evictees bring with them, the jurors aren't allowed to discuss gameplay in the jury house.
