    Invalid! No JP Patches?
  2. He's a viking elf princess. Which is...a lot of look.

    S05.E11: All the Comforts of Home

    Awesome wink at Galaxy Quest. And put me on the "happy to see Deke" train.
  4. This was the most enjoyable Olympics that I can remember. It was mostly covered as a SPORTING EVENT with little incidental profiles, instead of "OH THAT SPEED SKATER'S SISTER DIED LET'S TALK ABOUT IT EVERY NIGHT FOR AN HOUR (here's some scores)" . No holding the top event until midnight (even though it actually ended 18 hours ago) so they could TALK MORE ABOUT THE SKIIER WHO LOST HIS DAD (also here's some results). I'm sure the summer games will be back to usual, but at least there's no Matt Lauer looming.

    Announcers we love and/or hate

    Here's an actual transcription of the Alpine announcers: Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Brief Mention of Other Skiier Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Ways in Which This Skiier is Similar to Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Hey a UFO Just Landed on the Slope! How Will This Impact Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Only Eight Skiiers Until Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin Mikaela Shiffrin /vom She may be the greatest thing on earth, but I devoutly hope she lays an egg in all the remaining events. Of course that won't change the narrative. Aside from this, I'm finding the coverage a lot better than it's been in past years. I've actually seen SEVERAL events with no Americans in medal contention. FYI, Mikaela Shiffrin is five skiiers away as I type this, and I just counted the times her name was spoken in the last three minutes: eight

    S02.E10: Best Self

    I was actually on the backlot tour a couple of years ago when it was set up with the yogurt shops. (It's where they stop for a bathroom break -- fun fact!) This was long before the show was on of course, and we were all -- what's with all these frozen yogurt shops!!?!
  7. I guess I didn't realize it was the HoF induction? game? where Erica -- allegedly -- left the locker room to sit in the stands. Aside from any drinking, insubordination, sneaking, whatever -- pretty lousy of K&J to make her stay in the locker room. I mean, once in a lifetime.... Even though I personally think JJ is a loathsome toad and VERY bad for football, I appreciate that the women in the DCC have a different perspective, and it probably would have meant a lot to Erica to be able to see it live. If they really told her to stay in the locker room? What was the purpose of that -- couldn't she have been out on the field with K&J?

    S02.E06: The Trolley Problem

    Best ep so far this year! LOL'd several times. The actor playing Chidi killed it this week -- showed me things he hasn't before. This is just a delightful thing and very special.

    I thought the actor looked incredibly like Misha.

    S02.E04: Team Cockroach

    I thought Tahani said something last year about, "gave my life to save others, such fun!" Hm. Going to have to check the Tivo....
  11. Last year Tasha bugged a little bit, not sure why, maybe a hint of inauthenticity. I certainly don't know her so she may very well be the most authentic and genuine person on the planet. One thing I DO know, however, in the comparison pictures, meant to demonstrate how she'd gotten "bigger" since tryouts last year? She looked about 5000% better this year. Last year, in the picture they used, she looked skinnier, certainly, but also haggard and ten years older. I get it if the organization thinks "she won't look good in the uniform" if she's carrying those few extra pounds, but the example picture they used could hardly have been a worse one, as it seemingly was saying -- this skeletal look? this is what we want.

    General True Crime Shows

    The wives on "Evil Lives Here" all seem painfully dumb and passive. "I just couldn't believe it was him. I told the police they'd made a mistake." "It was just really important to me that my kids had a mother and a father." "To find out that he was actually guilty was upsetting." "A lot of these signs I just didn't see." "I should have left many years before." I guess they get points for being honest but for crying out loud, open your eyes and take some ownership of your life! Critical thinking! Argh!

    S12.E10: Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets

    If they lost their wings why were wings burned onto the ground when they died? I'm with MysteryGuest; I just haven't been feeling it this year, not sure why.

    Intervention Canada: All Episodes Discussion

    Can we start a "Worst Grandparent's" thread? Dad, Stepdad and Grandma all just threw up their hands and left these kids to deal with the mess the adults in their lives, most especially their wife and daughter, created. Inexcusable, and gross.

    Hoarders: Overload

    T'Resa was clearly F'D UP during the entire show. "I'm beautiful!" Corey's a paramedic also? Be still my heart....
