    Dynasty (2017)

    I'd watch Fallon in just about anything. Her character is one of the few reasons I'm still watching this reboot. The first season was really fun and enjoyable, but S2 has been spotty, and the recent dark turn is very unwelcome. The overall sense of lightness and good humor was what I liked about the reboot, it was fun and didn't take itself too seriously in the beginning. The dark turn has been jarring, capped off with ThoroughlyEvilAdam. Original Recipe Adam was nasty and unpleasant from the start, but he wasn't a murderous sociopath, which is what reboot Adam has been established as. Even when OR Adam was poisoning Jeff, he wasn't trying to kill him, just incapacitate him enough to get control of his shares of ColbyCo. And he was doing that as a gift for his new-found mommy, Alexis. He was just trying to be a good son! We've barely been introduced to reboot Adam, and he's already killed the woman who kidnapped and raised him, and may have killed both Steven and Alexis. OR Adam was bad, but he was still mostly fun to watch. This character is just a wacko killer. No fun.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    You guys are killing me with your comments on Jilly's latest culinary adventure! It is mind blowing that she would post that photo, thinking that looks even remotely like anything anyone would want to eat. I guess that's one of the convenient things about her creations, you know what they're going to look like when you barf them back up!

    I had to FF through it. Hank's assholishness, while always present, was off the charts in this episode. Cringe-worthy, indeed. I hope they dial him back, because behaving this way, he's no fun to watch.

    Will & Grace

    It's too bad the show never followed through on the student nurse thing for Jack, back in the original run. He would have a legitimate career now, and could do some acting on the side. That would make the occasional silly play he does funny, instead of kind of pathetic. I did enjoy Will's little speech about being tired. It was spot-on. Going to marches and making phone calls and collecting signatures feels vital and meaningful and important at 25. At 50, not so much. He stated that really well.

    S05.E09: The MVP

    I thought this was a funny episode, but another nitpick: as bad as David is at anything athletic, it's crazy that he struck out three times. They were playing slo-pitch softball, which is built around putting the ball in play. The ball is lobbed right over the plate, a good pitcher is one who induces lots of weak ground balls and pop flies. Striking out is nearly impossible, even for a player as pathetic as David. And to be so horribly awful as to somehow strike out three times and then smack a home run? Highly improbable. But that's just nitpicking. I loved David bemoaning the fact that his outfit wasn't properly color coordinated, Patrick trying to humor him, and Johnny being so openly thrilled with his son's success, even though he was on the opposing team. Is Stevie still in the play, or did she worm her way out of it? Even though both Moira and Alexis were sweet in this ep, looking out for her, it seems like she might still have to humiliate herself. Unless Moira can unearth that hidden talent we all know is there!

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    2/5. Not bad, should have been better. Felt so smart figuring out Tuesday's clue, then they all got it (they were all-stars, though!). And I agree with those who say it was a badly-worded clue. Friday was an instaget and was so surprised when only one of them got it right.

    The cast is the only reason I watch this show. I've loved Martin Mull since "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" and will give a try to anything he's in. The writing is disappointing. If these people can make the show entertaining even with sub-standard scripts, imagine what they could do with some quality writing. I'd sure like to see that!

    What is...In the Media?

    Read about this during dinner at work last night and couldn't believe what I was seeing. Although Alex's proclivities sometimes get on my nerves, I never miss J! and the whole show experience just wouldn't be the same without him. Devastating news. Sending good vibes and strength out CA way. Fight on, Alex.

    Watched this episode over the weekend and have had "A Little Bit Alexis" playing in my head for three days now!

    The big ol' goose egg here, too. Overall, I'm enjoying the tournament, but didn't much enjoy FJ this week!

    S06.E16: Skippy And The Knowledge Hole

    This probably applies to Bonnie. I heard about Generation Jones a few years ago, but it never really 'caught on'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_Jones

    Law & Order

    Also can't stand "Aftershock" and never watch when it's on. It's one of a handful of episodes ("Killerz" also immediately comes to mind) that I find so objectionable I just can't enjoy it on any level. I can understand having a visceral reaction to witnessing an execution, even that of a clearly guilty and unrepentant scumbag, but the reactions seemed a bit extreme. And having sanctimonious straight-arrow Rey cheat on his wife was ridiculous. Especially for someone like him, having an emotional reaction to something would presumably make him want to seek the comfort and reassurance of his loved ones, not go bone a stranger. That was totally inconsistent with his character, and made zero sense. It was also pure soap opera stuff, which one certainly doesn't expect from the Mothership. Fortunately, the episode is an outlier in that respect, it didn't become the rule for future episodes.
  15. Maybe there will be some of that naughty dancing. I don't remember exactly what it's called, but it makes Rose feel so dirty!
