    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    Well, to be fair, that is a true statement irregardless of Kate and Luke. I think she was just referring to the whole concept, not any particular plans Luke had to marry a woman under false pretenses. She is not the first parent on this show to object to it. Not by a long shot.

    S17.E02: The Future Is Here

    I think the criteria was “five minutes into the future”. I think “Back Gills”, or whatever they were called, managed to evoke sea creatures with normal clothes just fine. It doesn’t have to be a costume. Neck Ruffles team nailed the five minutes into the future concept while still incorporating their modifications. The problem Chest Feathers had was they used zero imagination in relation to the feathers, and rather just worked around them rather than incorporating them into their design. And I think the same can be said to Shoulder Horns team as well, which is why I wish they had been judged as well. Honestly, a case could be made for all three teams except Neck Ruffles and Back Gills..... I actually think something like the dress Kovid made in the premiere would have worked better for Chest Feathers - that is what I meant by angelic or more ethereal.

    You are not. I think that’s why I expected everyone to make some crazy imaginative things instead of basic clothing (or tulle if you’re Hester). I would have loved to see what someone like Chris March would have done with this challenge.

    S17.E02: The Future Is Here

    Yes! Especially if said rich lady has FEATHERS ON HER CHEST! God, how uninspired can you get?!? That is exactly where my mind went too. I was envisioning something flowy and/or ethereal, maybe angelic? Instead, a bunch of dark, sad, badly made clothes. Pretty disappointing.

    Thank you. This completely. They are the least interesting couple to me this season. Why? Because he is straight up awful and she isn't far behind. There is no good reason except the cash involved to stay with this asshole after "Repulsed and Dead Inside". Much like Tristan & Mia last season, this relationship should have ended at the honeymoon. It was DOA at that point and everyone knows it. Every person that knows her has told her to leave: The experts, her friends, the other MAFS participants, even Luke's mother subtly hinted it wasn't going to work! She should have said, in the words of @Drogo, Fuck you Luke. And then left. I have zero respect for how she has played this. Zero. And I don't care if she has alcoholic tendencies, he is still an asshole. She can always stop drinking, but he will STILL be an asshole...... I can't wait for this season to be over. Gah!

    I hear what you are saying, and I agree with you, but when I said toughen up, I meant more in the context of this show. I liked when Christian was flabbergasted because he was floundering and was just like, get a bottom going! Your model needs something besides a top! He does seem sensitive, and that's fine, but it's not going to help him achieve his goals by all the crying, and it's not very professional on the runway either. I do think the other designers were sweet to encourage him, and I prefer someone described as "always happy" as opposed to say, Hester or Tessa bitch mode, but he needs to get some gumption when things are going wrong or he won't last long on this show.

    I am loving this iteration of PR! I think this was such an interesting challenge, and two days again!!! It’s just too bad there were so many missed opportunities in the designs.....I mean, The worst was team chest feathers and team shoulder horns, and I would have thought they would let their imaginations fly with what you could do with such crazy stuff. Sadly, no..... I freaking love Christian’s approach to how he is mentoring. I think it’s tough love, and it appears many of these designers need it. I wish the top and bottom had been decided individually even though it’s a team challenge because I really felt Bishme deserved to be in the top with Sebastian and Afa. Also, Hester deserved to be bottom too. I can’t believe the other two let her steamroller them. What garbage, and exactly how does tulle work with those horns?!? I was thinking Maleficent and she did My Little Pony...... I might be in the minority, but Kovid needs to toughen up and stop crying. I was glad Sebastian put his foot down with Tessa. She could have sent a garbage bag and been safe, he needed to do his own thing. As Nina would say, she has taste, and she has vision; it remains to be seen if she has sewing skills. We shall see when she is on her own again next week..... We were talking about avant-garde in last week’s forum. I think Sebastian’s would have worked for that challenge. Not sure who is going to buy a reproduction on Bravo.com - where do you wear that in real life? Afa or Tessa’s would have been a better choice for mass production......or maybe that purse - it was fantastic!

    S17: E4 Auditions Part 4

    I liked the retirement home nurse. He's a bit of a fixer upper, but I thought he sounded great, and it helps that he picked a song I liked. I also liked Alyssa. I am glad she came back, but it's hard to accept that she is a returnee yet only 16. Imagine how much better she would be if she had waited another year?!? I did not like the robot. Her voice was mediocre to terrible. I hope she is cut early. Keep getting straight A's sweetie - that will take you farther than this show. I really hate the way the show is being edited with all of the cities mixed together. I preferred it when it was more linear with one city per episode. Thank you to the mod who is still keeping these episodes separate forums. I don't always watch stuff when it is on, and it's hard not to get spoiled when there is only one giant thread........

    S01.E16: Wendi's House

    I laughed the hardest at Mike: "Do you really want to see two redheads going at it in a waterbed?" Or something like that........ "The Thon" Ha! Also: "How long have you been watching that?" "I just turned it on." "The wax fruit is melting. That's enough." I loved Joey and Lawrence......it's nice to see Lawrence is not so pious that he's above using his collar to go to a bar even though he's underage. I cannot believe they thought Joey was old enough to be drinking age, let alone a priest......... I weirdly now want to see a cockroach race - that setup was adorable! I live in California and ever since the drought we have had those huge cockroaches roaming our garage after dark for the last 3 summers........they never come in the house and they disappear during the day, but they totally creep me out when I go out into the garage for something after dark in the summer........

    S08.E12: You Give Love A Bad Name

    At this point, I have no idea what the real story is between Luke and Kate, but I am at the point I just don't care anymore. I can't stand either one of them. I hope AJ & Steph stay together at least past decision day to see how it goes when the cameras and production are gone. Long term, who knows? He might be eating alone again if he can't get his temper under control. I think Keith and Kristine are cute. I really hope they stay together. I liked their champagne glass hot tub convo. Will and Jasmine are mismatched. They need to divorce. Nothing else to say there. Am I right in seeing that next week is not decisions? We really still have TWO weeks left of this garbage?!? I seriously need a break from this show......

    S02.E10: Blood of Patriots

    I enjoyed this episode a lot. I think overall this season has been great. Things I liked: Yaphit getting honored. It was interesting seeing how they would do that on what is essentially a giant blob. Ed throwing the vodka shot over his shoulder. These small touches of humor are what I love about this show. Also, the pee corner in the shuttle bay lives on.....they should really think about building a bathroom down there. Dann continues to kill it this season. They are using him just the right amount. Up vote for casual friday! I would love to see what that looks like..... Gordon's conflict and survivor guilt over his friend. He's usually a doofus, but I think he really sold it here. I also liked that he was a better fighter than his friend who had spend 20 years in a prison. Seems realistic. This was the first episode I thought Tallah really worked well. Humor in the scene with the Krill, and showing off her skills with the "daughter". I like her. The scene where Gordon stepped off the shuttle into space was intense! It gave me the willies. Like Gravity with Sandra Bullock willies. Great job there, my favorite part of this episode. What I didn't like: Isaac just going back to his job like nothing happened. This show is usually pretty good at continuity (at least to me), but this feels brushed over. I hope this is explored more in the future episodes. I also hope we find out what happens to the girl they have quarantined...... Ed saying he was jealous of Gordon's friendship with Orrin. I don't think this was conveyed at all. I think he was in a really difficult situation and when Gordon yelled at him it just seemed like frustration and nothing else, as it should have been.

    S17.E01: Premiere

    It is fantastic, but that sounds like an unconventional materials challenge, not avant-garde......

    S06.E10: Gintars

    My favorite line of the episode. I also thought the hearty laughing with Amy and Holt was funny - they really sold it to the point I started laughing too.... Jake’s response to Gintar re:his penis at the end was funny “It’s perfect”..... That receipt with 10,000 coupons was truth. I hate those things - I never use them! Terry’s eyebrows bit was funny but it felt too similar to Rosa’s changing hairstyles a few episodes ago. I think Charles calling Gintar his “real father” was insecurity. I think he does know he is Nikolaj’s father and he defended his position as such when he was listing all the ways he takes care of Gintar’s sex result.

    S07.E11: Nina Says Don't Cry Over Spilt Silk

    I agree with everyone here - this runway SUCKED! I thought the only choice was Biddell - he’s the only one who made a complete gown. Irina’s would have been best if she competed the whole thing. It looked unfinished. To me, Dmitry’s dress looked like it was covered with pot leaves..... The less said about the other two the better. God awful. Georgina is looking more orange every week. She’s starting to resemble an Oompa Loompa..... This season is limping to a conclusion, it’s just morbid curiosity keeping me watching.
