    S04.E15: I Need to Find My Frenemy

    Not a bad episode, but I'm not loving how the show is trivializing Rebecca's "choice" between the three men. They're making it more of a farce than a real life serious decision. Are they attempting to tease the audience that wants to see her end up with one of them? Are they showing us that none of them is the right choice, at least not right now? It would seem to me that she is not ready to make that decision and that it still would take some time before she lived into the answer, so I'm not sure we're going to see her end up with anyone at this point. Unless the show is going to pull a rabbit out of a hat with the three dates thing. Whatever. I did love how Audra now admires Rebecca for her growth, though. That was a great way to put an exclamation point on how far she's come.

    S01.E16: Wendi's House

    I'd heard that cockroaches were bigger in warmer climates, but youch, that was the stuff of nightmares! I grew up in NY so of course I have a history with them, but it was like PTSD to see them so huge in this episode, and people actually touching them. Ugh, I need a therapy session just on that alone. Otherwise, a cute episode!

    S02.E11: Lasting Impressions

    Thank you, I came here to add this one but you beat me to it. So now we have the Minuet episode, the Leah episode, and some aspects of Inner Light. I think I remember that Minuet sang and Ryker would watch her. And like Gordon, he also felt that she was more "real" than any holodeck reproduction he'd ever met, which we later found out was due to alien intervention. Once again though, a lot of similarity to TNG eps. As previously mentioned, this episode also borrowed from Black Mirror episode "Be Right Back" where a woman is able to download her late boyfriend's information into an artificial reproduction of him based on all the information on his cell phone. I enjoyed this episode but felt that Gordon's understanding or lack thereof of 21st century ways was either too much or not enough depending on the perspective. If I had the time I'd go back to illustrate the specific expressions or situations I thought it would be a stretch for him to be familiar with almost 400 years in the future. But I guess it's similar with Shakespeare. When I read Shakespeare in high school I remember being amazed at how many expressions are still in use that first appeared in Shakespeare. But if they wouldn't even know what WTF stood for, wouldn't Gordon stumble on some things in the simulation? Or maybe the simulation avoids those kinds of expressions.

    God Friended Me

    Yeah, I thought that was unrealistic too. I don't remember ever being told I had a job at the end of one interview. There's always a "We'll call you" which may be for a second interview if you're lucky. OK, maybe it happened once when I was 18 at Burger King.
  5. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    I think there is a big difference between having a drinking problem and temporary drinking during a very unusual and stressful event in one's life. I am basically a tea totaler but once when life was extremely stressful I would have a few glasses of wine every night. When the stressful situation was over, so were the glasses of wine. I don't believe a word out of Puke's lying mouth and I can't believe people are actually taking him seriously. That's just what he wants people to do so he looks good and she looks bad. If she really had a drinking problem I'm sure the show would have made a thing about it, sending over one or the other experts to call her on it the way they called Puke on his behavior. Otherwise I still say it's BS. When I was young I had every accusation in the book by guys that just wanted to make it my fault that they didn't like me. I was too this, too that. I was too old, too young, looking for commitment, not looking for commitment, too independent, too needy, whatever they could say to make it look like I'm at fault. Puke's attitude tells me all I need to know about him. He's a poser, an abuser and not a nice person so why on earth would I believe anything he said about Kate?
  6. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    I think both Will and Jasmine may be a little clueless about relationships. Neither one of them shows that much self or other awareness, nor are they being realistic about where things have been very obviously NOT going in their relationship, or I would have expected one of them to address this in their talking heads. Them both saying they are hopeful about their future together is unbelievable given how obvious it is to the world that they're just not clicking and going nowhere. What are they waiting for, a miracle? Or are they just not admitting to the world that they've both given up and are waiting for it all to be over?
  7. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    I think Kate is infatuated with the hipster image she sees in Puke, which is really a fantasy, not reality. And she is blind to the awful reality that is him.
  8. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    Of course! But I have known so many hipsters that are similar to Puke in so many ways....Sorry, that's a rant of mine.
  9. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    Forgive me for saying this, but I think Puke is a really bad example of his generation. He's like everything I hate about hipsters rolled into one person with none of the upsides. He's almost a stereotype of himself. Of course, not taking responsibility for anything and attempting to make every messed up thing they do someone else's fault is part of that stereotype. And sadly, he fits it all too well.
  10. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    More smokescreen from Luke - She initiates, therefore it's not his fault, she drove him to sex. BS! Also, if he is buying the wine I call BS. I don't believe he's not drinking it, either. If he wasn't drinking and/or was that turned off by her drinking he wouldn't be encouraging the behavior like that.
  11. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    Yeah, gives her false hope, uses her, withdraws from her, blames her for that, and then she just accepts the blame! Rinse, repeat! It angers me because while I would never be as mousy as Kate, he is beating her down with this behavior. This is how abused women stay with their abusers. They get hooked on the false hope even if it means it's all taken back. Then they start to believe they actually deserve the abuse, and they're lucky that they get some crumbs that drop off the table so to speak. It ultimately makes them unable to defend themselves from the abuse, and they just get sucked back in again for another cycle.
  12. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    I might agree with that, but they say there's a kernel of truth in every insult. Puke's behavior is classic abuser behavior. They often find one thing to blow way out of proportion and throw it up at their partner to justify their bad behavior whenever the other person questions theirs. It's a smoke screen to try to deflect attention away from himself. It's no coincidence that he latched onto something he knew would elude the cameras. Notice how AJ's bad behavior is chronicled for all to see - It's too hard to hide. If Kate were really drinking that much I don't doubt that the cameras would have made a "thing" about it. She may actually be drinking more than usual, but who wouldn't with the stress of being on the show with that abusive asshole? We have seen that before on this show. I'm willing to give her that benefit of the doubt because everything in me tells me she does not have a drinking problem outside of this situation - Unlike AJ, whose behavior seems too obviously a big issue with his ability to handle stress in general, and is not just a function of being on the show. Also, Luke always brings up that one thing - I really doubt that this one thing is the only thing turning him off. I am sure there is SOME reason he is turned off to her, but the drinking is coming off like an all-too-convenient excuse to drag out whenever he feels pressure to justify himself. If he wasn't sleeping with her and giving her mixed signals, I might believe him a little more. But his saying one thing and doing another is making me think what he is saying is a smoke screen to deflect attention from the fact that his own hang ups are the reason for his being turned off. Plus, if he is so turned off to her, why is he sleeping with her? Is he just using her? Ah, so maybe THAT's the reason he doesn't want anyone knowing about it! He knows he's taking advantage of her and wants to hide it from the world! Plus he knows it looks hypocritical. If he is really repulsed by her why on earth would he be able to look beyond that to have sex with her? I really doubt he's into "ugly sex", LOL. He is just FOS and unwilling to admit that his own hang ups are what are the cause of his behavior, NOT anything he is using to conveniently blame on Kate!
  13. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    She keeps telling the camera she's worried that after decision day he'll continue to act out when under stress. I was like, "Gee, Stephanie, YA THINK?" LOL, what makes her think he WON'T?? She may stay with him after decision day but I think they're ultimately doomed. And that's sad. She deserves better than to waste her time with "Baby Huey". I noticed he was finally relaxing and not throwing a tantrum this time. He really is such a baby. Someone distract him with a rattle and he'll settle down! 🙄
  14. Yeah No

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    LOL, you and I were thinking the same thing! This Bronxite would be giving that POS a piece of my mind and standing my ground, not let him blame me for everything wrong in the relationship! Every time she wants to talk about things he throws up the drinking as a roadblock. He sends her the message that the reason he doesn't want to get closer to her is HER fault, not HIS. She takes it to heart, cries, and crumbles. He gets her off his back and he never has to take any responsibility for what's going wrong between them, or admit that anything is on him. What a POS. I would be like, "Don't make this about my drinking, I know you're conflicted about me, but whatever it is, it's YOUR issue, not MINE. If you really liked me you wouldn't blow my drinking way out of proportion!
  15. Yeah No

    S08.E11: My Little Secret

    I just had this thought. The thing with AJ is not that he's upset that the show is jerking him around so that he can't enjoy his time with his wife. It's that he is not in control of everything, and he must be in control of everything. Otherwise he wouldn't throw a tantrum to make it even more impossible to enjoy time with his wife. He would try to do his best to make the best of a less than perfect situation instead. If AJ is not in control he can't have a good time and no one gets to have a good time because that's the most important thing, not the other people's happiness. He is full of crap about that and fooling himself.
