    The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    I didn't know this was a thing, but now I kind of want to see it:

    Steel Magnolias (1989)

    Hell, when Shelby tells M'Lynn that she's pregnant, her mother already knew that there was an eighty five percent chance of it leading exactly where it led. When Shelby gets a little snotty about the lack of congratulations, her mom deadpans 'congratulations', but she's got this look on her face that says the total opposite. Knowing that the play and movie are centered around a real person makes me wonder if "real life" M'Lynn had a similar reaction or if that was just how Sally Field decided to play it.

    All Episodes Talk: All Rise

    Any chance it'll be airing here in NC, or do I have to check the JJ site to find out? I've never seen the Patricia Bean case,, and I feel deprived.

    Say What?: Commercials That Made Us Scratch Our Heads

    I know, but that makes even less sense, since neither of those women can be more than twenty-two. Baby Got Back came out twenty-seven years ago, and while I guess retro music is still in, it seems like a weird marketing choice that they'd use a song that's nearly three decades old as if millennials would be fully aware of it.

    Say What?: Commercials That Made Us Scratch Our Heads

    I have one question - is it supposed to be a selling point for Pizza Hut that being amazed by their crust makes you look like your eyeballs are about to fall out?

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    Except I don't think you mean "everybody". You mean the "whiny, fragile fanboys who are totally different than a certain portion of shippers who shamefully dogpiled Emily VanCamp just because she decided to take an acting job. Because men." I think perhaps Larson was naive in the way she approached this, and on top of that I think she wasn't prepared for how loud this fandom can get. Let's face it, we want it the way we want it, and God help you if you don't give it to us. (Hi, Joss.) But I don't think she had bad intentions or hates men or is going to destroy the franchise. That we're all so focused on blaming "whiny, fragile fanboys" sort of is political, but that's not even about Brie since the same thing happened over The Last Jedi. I just don't think she had enough experience with literally millions of fans paying attention to her, since aside from her Oscar turn in Room she's only had a couple of movies where she's prominent. More later once I've let the movie settle, I just wanted to offer some food for thought. 🙂

    All Episodes Talk: All Rise

    I was about to post that exact thing. I remember a few months ago they had a litigant they had to subtitle because he was so incomprehensible, and while not all of them are that bad, the level of mangled English on this show makes me cringe. I'm the first to admit my grammar isn't perfect, but at least it's usually understandable.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    If I was this lady, I'd be thinking of an inventive place to put that ring. I get it's supposed to be comedy or whatever, but Jesus.

    Her Honor: "Why is she here?" *meaning the new girlfriend* Plaintiff: "She put the pieces together and told me, 'you just got scammed'." Her Honor: "You needed her to tell you that?" I'll allow the question.

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    Legitimate question - if it doesn't need a qualifier, why qualify it? Both Evans and Hemsworth have been candid about the difficulty they've had keeping in shape for these movies, and there was a point where Sebastian Stan put on so much muscle that I think they had to re-size the prosthetic arm so it would fit. Being super-fit isn't a terrible problem to have or anything, but I'm sure it's difficult to maintain full time. It just seems odd that the casting info would tack on what's obvious.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Is that who that is? I'll have to pay closer attention next time. Caught a new insurance ad yesterday while getting ready to go to work. I think it was Colonial Penn, because there's a woman sitting in her living room reading a letter from her newly-deceased husband and half-smiling, half-crying. Because he made sure to buy the advertised insurance to provide for her once he was gone. I get what they were going for, but it just seemed morbid and gross since the guy died not that long ago.

    The People's Court

    There was an older man sitting behind the young plaintiff in the insane landlady case, and he was nodding emphatically while JM was saying the defendant would do this kind of thing on purpose, rent out a room and then drive the renter out so she could keep as much of their money as possible. Maybe he knows her? XD
