    Leaving Neverland

    You never understood why parents who cared more about money than their kids would allow M. to see their kids after receiving a cash settlement? I think the answer is so obvious I would fell silly spelling it out.

    S05.E07: A Whisper Of Desire

    There have been other cases in this industry where someone with a pronounced lack of talent is kept around because they supply others with things not usually available to most people. This could be almost any kind of product or service. It could even be something as innocent as emotional comfort or the fact that he just makes people happy or that people just like him. Go figure. The only production I ever enjoyed on which he was an actor was "Theres Something about Mary" which I thought was a terrific film.

    Surviving R. Kelly

    I don't think I'm understanding you. Why does this horrify you? There may be more than one way to look at that. By having two women present, their thinking may be that makes it safer for the children because there are multiple eyes on the kids and if anyting "untowards" happens, there is a greater likelihood they will catch it before it becomes a real crime. Don't you think? In case you have not seen the interview that Gayle King conducted with R. Kelly, here it is: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/r-kelly-denies-sexual-abuse-allegations-in-explosive-interview-2019-03-05/ I thought it was very bizarre that Kelly would complain about Gayle King "double joepardying" him because he seemed to claim that by being acquitted of one case he could no longer be charged or even suspected of any other crimes. But that is not what double jeopardy means at all. I'm just saying this from memory (and everytime I do this, a lawyer comes on here and shows me up by explaining that I don't know what I'm talking about). But as I recall, "double jeopardy" means that if you are charged with one specific crime (related to one specific set of facts), you cannot be charged again with the same crime covering the same set of facts. But, you certainly can be charged (and possibly convicted) of the same charge (like "attempted murder") as long as it covers a different set of facts. If I am wrong about this, I certainly hope some lawyer will come on and explain just why I am wrong and explain just what "double jeopardy" really does mean. In other words, the fact that R. Kelly was acquited of some sexual assault on one person on one specific days just means he cannot be charged a second time with the same crime covering the same victim on the same date and time. But he certainly can be charged and convicted of any number of other sexual assaults as long as they were different "events" (meaning they happened to a different victim or happened in a different location or happened at a different date and time). It seems to me that R. Kelly seems to thing that because he was acquited of one sexual assault, that means he can go around sexually assaulting all the young girls he wants to now and he cannot be charged just because he "beat" one charge from a long time ago. That is not only crazy. It is also very stupid. Of course he can be charged for any new crimes he commits. If he really and truly believes that is what "double jeopardy" means, he is in for a very rude surprise. A very rude surprise that he will certainly deserve. In case my feelings about this are not clear, I want to make it clear that I hope he winds up spending the rest of his life behind bars and the sooner - the better! IMO, he is a crazy monster and a stupid monster as well. Can I say "F" Kelly? I hope I can because that is exactly what I want to say. To Hell with R. Kelly and in addition to that, "F" R. Kelly as well!

    What happens when she gets her real period a week later? Or at any time that isn't close to 28 days? I suppose it doesn't really matter. She could probably think of a good cover story and not have much of a problem. But it would have been a lot easier if she just thought of a different story that wouldn't have any danger of a "bounce-back" later on. Like maybe she scraped herself. I doubt any of the other players would demand she show them her scrape. If she did get her real period a week later, I doubt anyone would demand she prove something - one way or the other. So, I guess I have to agree. It was good thinking on the spur of the moment.

    As far as the challenge liability goes, I seem to recall that swimming challenges are kind of rare. My memory tells me that very few seasons have more than two swimming challenges. Of course, I could easily be wrong about that. Also, this season could always be an exception and it could have a bunch more swimming challenges. You never can be certain about those kinds of things. But, at the risk of breaking the trend by speaking about it, I would guess we will not see many more swimming challenges - or if we do - there will only be maybe one or two. So I doubt that swimming challenges will be much of a factor. But, I suppose anything could happen.

    On an Island of One: Unpopular Opinions of Survivor

    Excellent point! In the 1950s, people got used to TV shows broadcast once per week in the same time slot. But things are very different today. There really is no good reason for presenting a show like Survivor broken up into weekly chunks just because, "That is the way it has always been done." That has to be the worst reason for doing something I've ever heard. Some people may argue that presenting a season of Survivor in that way adds to the excitement somehow. But when you think about it, there is absolutely no good reason for showing one episode every seven days - just because of the way things were structured when TV was first introduced into our homes in the 1950s. I think things are similar - in a way - when it comes to explaining why a TV show like Survivor should be structured in the way that it is. I'm not talking about showing one episode per week. I'm referring to the way the entire show is organized - everything about that - like having two tribes and voting off one person each week. I think that when you reflect on the value of organizing this show in that way, it becomes kind of obvious that is done only because it is the way it has always been done and once you accept that, the whole premise of the show just kind of falls flat. Once you accept there are almost an infinite number of different ways to present this show, the possibilities grow in endless varieties. You may ask, "Well, OK. How would you do it?" and there are thousands of different ways to answer that. Surely the exact way it is currently being done is not necessarily the best way to do it. There are many exciting possibilities that could make this show (and many other shows) far more entertaining and fresher and more exciting, etc. Of course, all of this is only my opinion and I must admit there are many other good opinions. But, I thank you all for listening to me. The possibilities are endless and the only thing of which I am certain is that the worst way to do things may well be the way things are currently being done.

    I want to make it clear that I have no strong opinion on this. My post was more of a question than anything else. I have an impression of her and I wanted to check in and ask if other people knew something that I did not know. I am mostly just wondering if there is some other reason for her popularity. Thank you to everyone who has answered so far.

    On an Island of One: Unpopular Opinions of Survivor

    '"?@^|/\[]{}<> `~!#$%&*()-_=+;:,. I remember way back when at Season One when every episode seemed important to me. I was very invested in who would stay and who would go. I know many other people felt the same way. But how do you feel today? Is it still important to you? It is no longer of the slightest importance to me. In fact, the show has now become like one big long "Click Bait" ordeal where you have to click and click and click week after week to see who the next one voted off will be. It's just not worth the effort any more. I didn't even watch the first two episodes until yesterday. In previous seasons I was waiting on baited breath for the premier to start. This season I couldn't care less and I missed the premier. Isn't it time for this show to be cancelled now? It sure does feel like it's run its course. Survivor? Bleh!

    Is there anything more to her game play beyond being a pretty blonde girl? I get the feeling the main reason for all the interest in her is because she is a pretty blonde girl. I cannot see anything particularly high quality about her game play. She is not particularly physically adept. She doesn't make clever alliances. She sort of just goes with the flow. In other words, she is a very average and ordinary player - except for her exceptional good looks. Am I missing something? Is there any special reason beyond her looks to take much interest in her? IMHO, she is exceptionally nice looking but extremely average in all other ways.

    S05.E07: A Whisper Of Desire

    The "Roland" character has never really provided much in the way of comedy or much in the way of most anything else. I've always found this actor to be very marginal. Every time he appears on the screen I get the feeling that he is there for some strange purpose - like maybe the producers owe him some big favor - like maybe he saved the life of one of their children long ago and so they feel obligated to provide him with a job. He has always been a big negative in an otherwise positive show. Both the character and the actor just bring the whole show down. If the producers are reading this ... please please please get rid of this character. He is nothing except bad news (well ... he is also bad acting). A real shit in Shitts Creek. AAMOF, the entire series seems to be running out of steam. I get the feeling this show would have been great with 4 seasons and this 5th season exists just because the network couldn't find anything better to show us. Time to cancel this show now. Just my opinion. I do not mean to offend anyone else who has always loved this show. I used to really like it as well. But no more. IMHO, this show has jumped the shark and jumped everything else as well.

    Surviving R. Kelly

    I certainly can appreciate your sentiments about waiting until R. Kelly is convicted before you celebrate. That makes sense to me since so many of these monsters continue to wriggle out of serious trouble. But, at the same time, many of them find themselves in a kind of trap where they keep getting into trouble - time after time - until they are finally convicted and spend most if not all of the remainder of their lives in prison. Consider Bill Cosby. Oh My Gosh! It took me a few minutes before I remembered his name. That means something to me. It means that he is now viewed as less of a public hero and more like someone who will eventually be convicted of a charge that he will be unable to escape and will wind up spending the rest of his life in prison. I wish the same for the rest of these monsters. The Tiny Fuhrer (Miss Cabbage) (The Pope of Scamatology) is at the top of my list. I really and truly hope he is arrested and charged with the kinds of crimes he deserves and winds up spending the rest of his life in a penitentiary. And I surely do not mean the kind of penitentiary that resembles a Country Club. I mean one where he will regret every single day he is there. Hey there, Miss Cabbage. Can you hear the police coming for you? Can you use your phony Super Powers to envision what it will be like to be handcuffed and spend several weeks or months in a court room and then several years - if not all the rest of your life - in a prison cell that you will definitely not enjoy. If there is any Karmic Justice in this world, you will spend the rest of your life in a prison in which you regret every single day you are there and you regret every single beating you gave to your helpless underlings because you will have to endure the same kind of pain that you gave to others. That is the meaning of Karmimc Justice after all. Payback can be a bitch Davie Boy and in your case, I expect it will be a terrible experience where every single minute is filled with regret with sorrow. It will look real good on you, Davie! Surely no one will suffer the payback any more than you will.

    Celebrate! Celebrate! Isn't there a famous song that begins that way? What are the odds he will end up in a penitentiary where he belongs? Next step? Maybe the Tiny Fuhrer of Scamatology? Hey Miss Cabbage! Do you hear those footsteps approaching? It won't be long now. If they can get R. Kelly, how safe do you think you are? Please be sure to tell us how it feels to do the perp walk in front of all your fans.
