    S02.E11: Lasting Impressions

    TNG also had Commander Ryker fall in love with a hologram woman named Minuet. And someone mentioned before Geordi La Forge falling for a holgram simulation of a real woman. So it's been done several times, and I bet there are other examples that haven't been brought up.

    I'd like to see how that "friendship" between Gordon, Laura, and Greg was going to work out, when Gordon was totally focused on laser locking desire filled eyes with Laura every time he was around. I'd like to be a fly on the wall watching that play out. At least Gordon had the good sense to bow out. Bortus and Klyden bring new meaning to domestic violence.

    S03.E16: Chapter Fifty-One: Big Fun

    Support your local Farm cult lol. There was a line in the last song, I think. It said something about "when we get older, someone will love us". And I was thinking yeah, Veronica's parents, Betty's mom, and some of the other adults should come out of the audience and say "Um, I hate to break the news to you, but...."

    S03.E16: Chapter Fifty-One: Big Fun

    I noticed a major theme of the musical was "I'm beautiful", something that young people are preoccupied with, and something that young people are trying to discover, or hoping to discover about themselves. And it's consistent with the attractive cast they have. As an older person, I find myself constantly noticing how "Everything is so beautiful" around me. It's an interesting contrast how that subtle change has crept in, going from one more to the other.

    S03.E16: Chapter Fifty-One: Big Fun

    I thought this was a fun episode (Big Fun). Not the greatest thing ever, but this show was getting into a rut and needed something to break it up and change the pace. I thought the music was pretty good, although unlike some here I thought the Lifeboat song Veronica sang was kind of dumb. I liked the touch at the end with Betty wearing the Jughead shirt. About the only reason I'm watching this is for Bughead. The creepy clapping by the Farm people was effective, but it bugged me that NO ONE ELSE in the whole theater broke into any sort of applause when the play ended!? Not realistic. I mean, c'mon, it wasn't that bad.

    What's this about now? What's the controversy?

    I guess I'm not the only one who likes Sherloque. I really hope he doesn't end up being some version of Eobard Thawne though, because I just can't go back to Tom Cavanaugh whispering all his lines, I just can't. I can't.

    Schooled

    I liked the Phantom Menace when I saw it. I didn't like Jar-Jar, and I didn't like the midichlorians. But I liked Liam Neeson's Qui-Gon Jinn, and I liked Watto. I found it later he was considered an offensive stereotype of a Jewish person, which I didn't get. And Jar-Jar was supposedly an offensive stereotype of a Jamaica, which I still don't get. But overall I liked the movie because it gave me the same basic feeling as the original one did when I saw it in the theater. Oh, and I decided I preferred Yoda as a muppet. I liked Star Wars but I was never a HUGE FAN like some people. I was able to enjoy the movie for what it was, while for some diehard folks it was a letdown, I guess, because they expected some sort of epiphany from it or something, I don't know. I was going to complain because this was another episode of Schooled based around a movie, but it was a decent episode I guess, so I'll save it until next week.

    Unlike most people here, I kind of like the Sherloque character. But he was kind of a jerk the way he outed Nora before she could tell the truth. He should have just encouraged her to come clean and tell her parents. You could see that she wanted to, she just needed a push. Like "I figured out your secret, Nora, you might as well tell them".

    Schooled

    I used to stand at the mall for long periods of time and couldn't see it. Used to drive me crazy. Everyone kept telling me to "relax my eyes" and "look through it", which wasn't helping at all. When someone finally told me to cross my eyes and unfocus them, that did the trick.

    She's probably been married since she was 12.... maybe to Kenny from the dump. Billy probably traded her for a set of tires.

    American Chopper

    Jason turned up on last night's episode, he built a headlight for the bike. He hasn't been in recent episodes, and it was interesting that he wasn't in the meeting with the clients. But apparently he still works there. Senior's response to Junior's suggestion of a bike build was interesting. Something like "I think I love you a little too much for that right now, let's have dinner first". I'm thinking maybe the old man is smarter than his kid here, but I fully expect them to build a bike eventually. It's risky, because I think that's where the bad emotions come in, probably rooted in Senior's jealousy of his son's creativity. Meanwhile, Junior wants to show his creativity so his dad will be proud of him, so it's kind of like a feedback loop. Senior has some mechanical skill, and is good at supervising, managing, and making sure things get done. But he hasn't shown much creativity throughout the show.

    I don't think I've ever seen a show that had so many people hate watching it. At least it's more back to normal now, I could not handle last season in California, where every new episode was 40 minutes of old clips of them in Alaska and five minutes of health updates on Ami. A lot of focus on the kids romantic adventures now. I'm curious to see if everyone will be successful in talking Gabe out of getting married. And to see if one of the girls ever gets a date.

    Pawn Stars

    Saw the most recent episode where Rick takes possession of his fully restored fire truck. The last half of that one was like an episode of Lifestyles of the Rick and Famous. Rick shows off his off the grid property with the water driven generator that he built himself (or so he says). Rick's a smart guy, so I wouldn't doubt it. Beautiful looking place. I don't know why he had the fire truck painted red. I know that's a more popular color but I kind of liked the original greenish yellow, it was something different.

    S05.E18: Rancho Contento

    Yeah, he said something about being able to retire at 55. If he can afford to build his business plus keep IRAs going for himself and his wife, I think that would be a good strategy. A restaurant like that probably has a ceiling on it as to how much it is going to be worth. People often talk about the "three legged stool" for retirement, I always say it's best to have as many legs on that stool as you can get.
