    Yes, and I know that it doesn't bring Trent back, but I'm not exactly sad that his murderer is using a motorized wheelchair and looks to be a quadriplegic. Karma's a bitch. (I love karma---big believer in it.) Murderer is not in jail, but he is getting some form of payback from the universe.

    Buddy vs. Duff

    I'd watch that, too (as well as Duff vs. Bobby). I've watched both Cake Boss and Ace of Cakes, and I've liked both. I'm not Italian, but one of my parents is from Long Island. There's a certain loudness and brashness that comes from some of my relatives---Buddy reminds me of that. Sometimes it does get a little crude or base. My parent isn't like that, but some of my extended relatives can be. We just tell them to knock it off or ignore it. Usually it's just "annoyingly crude" like Buddy can sometimes be, but it's no biggie. Buddy is also usually no biggie for me. All of that said, Buddy has now gone full-blown obnoxious, not just a brash East Coast vibe. It's distasteful, and even if FN wants to create competition, I can't believe this is the vibe the network wants. This isn't talking good-natured smack. Buddy is descending into gutter-level trash. If I were Lisa (his wife), I'd be saying "What the heck are you doing? Knock it off!" He's wrecking his brand, and I'm disappointed that Ralph is behaving the same way. Ralph is quirky and artistic on Cake Boss, but he's acting mean like Buddy.

    S03.E16: Don't Take My Sunshine Away

    I agree with the girls being old enough to help with household chores, but I disagree with leaving them home alone for several hours. Deja's 13, not 16 or 17. Tess and Annie aren't her siblings, and even if they were, that's a lot to make a 13-year-old that responsible for two younger children. I speak from experience. I have siblings that are three and four years younger than me, and my parents had me "watch" the other two when I was 13-14. They never listened, which was no big shock. Thirteen or fourteen isn't old enough to command any sort of authority. I finally told my parents to quit doing it or either expect crap to happen. It puts Deja is an unfair position. I agree with those who say hire a high school senior or college student for a couple of hours a week. That's what my parents did. Randall and Beth don't have to have a fancy nanny or au pair.

    I didn't take Sophie's comment so literally. I thought it pointed toward that Kevin appears to get whatever he wants, but yet he's very unhappy. I didn't think the comment was specifically about a baby or about Zoey, but about Kevin's life being sort of an illusion. He's an attractive, personable guy who appears to have it all, yet he's never been truly content and happy. He always seems to be searching for contentment, and he's yet to realize that his contentment can't come from Zoey, Sophie, Kate, a play, Ron Howard's movie, the Manny, or drinking. It has to come from within himself, which is why I think he and Zoey will eventually break up. She's a free spirit who is content with her life and her choices. He is not, so I don't think any relationship that he has right now will be successful, He has to learn to have a relationship with himself first.

    Which dovetails with the Zoe/Kevin storyline. Zoe wants to live her life the way she wants and when she wants, so that is why she has chosen not to have children.

    Apparently, I'm the only one who watched Scorpion in this thread because I got a kick out of this scene. The actor who played Gavin played Toby on Scorpion, so Toby was talking to Toby. While I agree that Randall's message to Beth was really bad, I had another though in regard to Randall and Beth's work situations. My father was in corporate life for many years, and my mother went to numerous corporate functions with him. There were certain levels of functions. Drinks were very casual, and if my father went, my mom usually didn't go. However, if it were a dinner party like the one shown, then the unspoken expectation was that spouses were expected to attend. If it were an out-of-town conference, then executive spouses definitely attended. I didn't like what Randall said about asking for one thing or the phone message that he left Beth, but I could see the point about the dinner. The writers are writing it to create conflict between Beth and Randall, but drinks are kind of below dinner party in the hierarchy that I grew up with. It would be important for Beth to be there. Now, if Randall were a considerate husband, drinks usually happen more often, so he should have offered to be available for the next time for drinks so that Beth could go and he'd watch the kids. I did think Beth's comment about the cheesecake was unnecessarily catty and harsh.

    Maybe because they're older, and they're in Canada? Wrongful death suits do sometimes help criminal cases, but the Markels would have to be dealing with two nations. Could they do everything long-distance from Canada? I'd assume they'll be coming in June for the trial, but Toronto to Tallahassee is a long trip. Maybe it's too far for them to do it regularly?
  8. Now, here is where our path diverge, but only slightly. I think her mother was the driving force behind it, but Wendi didn't object either. There's some information from the podcast that makes me think that Mama drives the bus in that family and everyone goes along for the ride: 1)The Adelson parents bullied their other son when he fell in love with a non-Jew. Son has cut all ties with his family. 2) Wendi once said that she wanted a small ceremony by the beach, but her wedding was a big lavish affair. That sounds like a "mother move" to me. 3) Also at the wedding, Dan kept kosher, so did many of his friends, and he assumed the wedding would be. It wasn't. Again, a "mother move." His parents were also paying for the wedding, but her parents could have messed up the food on purpose if they chose. Plus, the Dateline episode said that Dan accused his mother-in-law of trashing him in front of his kids.
  9. You think she knew about it beforehand? I can buy that. I'm not sure about her level of involvement, but I do think she's involved. Her mother and brother are in it up to their necks, and I doubt the father is innocent. I hope that karma smacks that family HARD. Good thing that the one brother and his family cut all ties. From the podcast, I think it's clear that he thinks his parents and siblings orchestrated it. I hope Katie comes to her senses and rats all of them out. If someone else doesn't come forward with something to implicate the Adelsons, they could get away with this, which is an utterly abhorrent thought.
  10. I blew through the podcast about the Dan Markel case in one afternoon. One big gulp. I feel so sorry for the Markels. I also do not understand why Katie is not flipping on Charlie? He is disgusting, and Wendy's mother? Ugh! Highly recommend this podcast! The trial of the two guys is slated for June 2019...unless someone flips on someone.
  11. Hey Irlandesa! The Adelson brother (Rob)'s story in Texas is very telling, in my opinion. Her parents sound like they would totally help pay to have Dan murdered if they weren't above bullying their son for falling in love with a non-Jew. I think they financed it and Charlie (the other son) put the people together to make it happen. I think Wendi most likely knew about it after the fact and is protecting her family or knew about it before the fact and didn't stop it. The Adelsons are gross, evil people.

    You rock the house. I'm listening to the podcast as I'm typing this and am currently on Episode 2. I watched last night's Dateline episode. I had seen it before but had forgotten how angry it made me. I believe that Wendi at least has knowledge of Dan's murder. I think her parents, her brother, and probably her as well paid for the hit. It ticks me off that they're getting away with it.

    S03.E15: The Waiting Room

    Years ago, I taught with someone who was pregnant with a boy. She told everyone that they were going to name him a certain name. We all started referring to him by that name. She referred to him by that name. Then she went on maternity leave. When she came back, someone asked about the baby using the name we all knew. Turns out that she changed the name. When we asked why (because she was SO sure about the previous name and loved it), she said that she and her husband thought that the baby didn't "look" like that name when he was born. I don't know if she got any pre-birth monogrammed gifts.

    I've liked Randall for a long time, but I'm finding that I like him less and less. He completely ignored Beth's request to pull out of the race, and this was well before she wanted to teach ballet. Randall needs to understand that there are times in life where you need to sit down. Not everything has to be about you. Give someone else (in this case, Beth) a chance. Randall did not HAVE to run for council. He needed a new job, but that didn't have to be it. His district is not where he lives or even has ties except for William, and frankly, I think most viewers would be willing to completely drop that whole storyline (and all things William) with no problem. So, yes, Randall get another job that allows YOU to care for the girls while Beth teaches ballet. You WANT to be a councilman in the same way that Beth WANTS to teach ballet. It's time for her want, not your want.

    I agree with you. Miguel has never been a favorite of mine. That said, I don't think it's right how the family excludes him. Last night was mean, and it was mean coming from Toby. Miguel is good to Rebecca, and they are married. The kids (and their spouses) don't respect him or Rebecca's choice of him. I could understand their reaction if he treated Rebecca poorly, but that isn't the case.
