    The Zoo

    And once again I'm reminded of how much I regret not choosing a zoological science career track while in college! The delight the keepers cannot contain is absolutely infectious. Mott Mott's chosen human buddy had the best laugh! The only minor floatie in the eye of this show for me is the head outreach/education woman, Kathleen, I think? I cannot put my finger on it, but she rubs me the wrong way. Burning incense in your office, really? Bleh. Every single other person, though, is fantastic. I'd love to follow around any of them for a day, even if it meant shoveling poop to earn my keep.

    S02.E06: A Happy Refrain

    Whoa - brilliant point! I'm interested in seeing more of the Finn-Isaac relationship. But I may be biased, as Spock was always my ST:TOS favorite crush. Hell, I even have a bizarre attraction to David from Prometheus (well, ignoring the genocidal turn he took in Alien: Covenant....). Guess I have a type! Hours after watching this ep I was humming "Singing in the Rain" and it struck me that this was the first time I could think of that song without instinctive revulsion stemming from its use in A Clockwork Orange. Kudos to the show for giving a positive association in line with the song's original movie!

    S02.E06: A Happy Refrain

    Can't believe I wait-listed this ep for a week and a half - it's my FAVORITE of both seasons so far. I cannot remember laughing harder at any recent television show; I was cracking up through almost the entire thing. The idiot twins racing to the bridge, Yaphit's attempt to score the rebound, Bortus' taking Gordon's advice, Ed's gossip-camoflauge; by golly, even Kelly's dialogue was funny! And good Avis, the "scandalous" age difference? For real? If I had enough fingers on which to count all the real-life celebrity relationships with a 20+ year difference in which the MAN is the elder, I'd be the Orville's new piano teacher. You go, girl!

    S02.E12 Recap; Head of Household #7

    Was Ryan's Very Special Moment supposed to make us feel sorry for him? I found him affable and inoffensive in the house, but that non-apology really soured me. I honestly thought he was gonna come out with something like "I was wasted drunk, did something stupid and wrong, and I feel really bad. I hope my fans will forgive me." Instead, we got what sounded like a sneaky kid trying to get out of asshole behavior. He "touched" a sign at the gas station with his hand? Did he mean to say he knocked something down, i.e. vandalized property, like a drunk little punk, and then expected to walk away? Eff that. I'm bummed, because I was more under the impression that he'd accepted some responsibility for that debacle. Was Kato trying to summon Robin Williams with that schtick? I had second-hand embarrassment through the screen. Uh huh, Tamar Floor-Shrimp, I'm sooooo sure that Tom was the messiest. Fun to demonize your enemies when they're not present. Go put away your tap dancing shoes. The only times I've been able to tolerate Tamar - even find her funny - is during girl-talk, first with Dina when she described her most-definitely-catfish boyfriend, and tonight when she learned that Lolo is a virgin. Which in theory I respect, but have to wonder if she's fittingly waiting for a virgin husband. Because if one's virginity is a precious gift, then your future man's gift should be saved for you alone, right? Best of luck with that! When she basically said that she's not worried about the sex being bad because she won't know any better, wow, that made me sad. The Sea Bass Incident just showed how perfectly those two utterly deserve each other. But Tay-tay, you might not want to call out others on needing to grow up when you're wearing a pom-pom onesie.

    S06.E05: A Tale of Two Bandits

    I was tickled to see them in the opening credits, and had to rewind to see if they'd removed CP from the opening slo-mo walk sequence. And how perfect that Hitchcock and Scully were NOT added there, unless they were rolling along in their fart-filled office chairs. Perfectly in character. Milli Vanilli, lol! "He's the better-looking one." "You know it's true." What did Shaw's owner guy say? The Charbonnay was a little warm because it had been sitting on the radiator? GAG.

    S04.E09: Sex and the Kitty Girl

    Latrice's runway look was a disaster. I have no problem with green, but the design at the bottom was awful! When she was crowing about the beautiful airbrushed art, I pictured the ubiquitous hillbilly meth-head at the county fair who does airbrushed t-shirts with cheesy script names and confederate flags. Gurl, no. Monique's runway look was pretty good, though for some reason the color of the hat plumes bugged me, just didn't seem go with the rest of the outfit. But her K-Jo was SPOT ON. Wow, by far the best character - she had every mannerism down! And I could not stop laughing at her wig gaffe. I was hoping they'd work it into the final edit. Speaking of which, dang, the writing for the challenge was duuuuullllll. I wasn't even paying attention for the red carpet scene. I hope I'm mis-remembering, but did Naomi say she's seen every SATC ep five times? And THAT'S how she played Carrie Bradshaw? Good gravy. SJP/CB has so many idiosyncrasies that could have made that character really pop, and Naomi failed on all cylinders.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Rochester, NY couple: It's great to see Andrea from Beverly Hills 90210 looking so fantastic for her age!

    TDS 3.0: Season Four Talk

    E-sports? Millions of dollars? Possibly entering into the actual Olympics? (Sickeningly rampant misogyny? not addressed in the piece but well-known) Um, I think this planet might actually need a ground war that reinstitutes the need for a draft.

    S07.E06: Pedal to the Metal

    I normally find WW just too much extra, but her sniping at blowhard IM was giving me LIFE! "Japon-aise? It's Japanese!!" God, he's such an asshole. I must have the blandest, most mediocre taste, because my favorites last week were the Jaguar and Antelope, and my favorite this week was the folded pink one first or second out. I can't recall which of the female international designers it was, but I'm really enjoying the middle-of-the-road work.

    S02 Live Feed Discussion: Grab Your Popcorn

    Just like Angela's mustache last season, now that y'all have mentioned Lolo's octagonal lantern jaw it's all I can see when I look at her.

    S02 Live Feed Discussion: Grab Your Popcorn

    This was a few nights ago, but Kandi and Dina were playing pool and somehow a rather pathetic rap battle broke out between Dina and Kato. Dina OWNED him, and I laughed so hard. Can't believe I'm actually rooting for a Kandi and Dina final two, but here we are... #middleagedwomenforthewin

    Season 16 (Kentucky) Last Chance Kitchen

    Aw geez, why did Brandon have to go? This was the episode when I finally realized I might like him because he bears an AMAZING resemblance to Andy Samberg. Not cool, cool cool. I wish they'd revealed the other mystery ingredients. And don't think they should have had instantly recognizable items - I was hoping when the chef who won (he's made such an impression that I don't even remember his name) said he made a scallop dish, Tom replied with "You think it's scallops? Actually,..."

    S16.E09: Music City USA

    What irritated me about Kelsey this ep was she was going on at length about what a country music fan she is, we're at the GOO, woo hoo, but when Padma asked if she's a fan of whoever the heck that QF guy was, she just kinda giggles and smiles. If I were a legit fan and got to meet him, I'd at least say something like "yes! I love {insert slightly less-known song/album name here)!" Not a douchbag hipster dissertation, but just one sentence showing that I am a true fan and not just some random kiss-ass (which imo she kinda came off as). But take that with a grain of salt*, as I'm one of those people who hate when a personally beloved author/artist/etc. becomes suddenly popular and showered with newbie fans (and feel conflicted because I don't begrudge them success). *one of the many off Kelsey's visually-appealing but nasty-sounding dish Whoever that QF guy was - I can't call him a judge because it didn't seem like he had much of a basic palate needed to fairly evaluate - I couldn't stand his repeated comments about "it feels so weird to be eating on camera." Seriously? I don't give a shit about your internal feelings. Tell me about the food, that's why I watch this show. And get off my damn lawn while you're at it!

    S04.E08: RuPaul’s Best Judy’s Race

    Geez, Manila was my absolute fave, but I feel more kinda bummed and confused by the whole thing than indignant and shocked. I really like Monet, but assumed she'd be in the bottom. I loved Patty's natural hair - would love that shade - but wtf was with the whiteface? Yeek. And the runway was meh. How was that a family look but Manila's wasn't? True, I think the comment about the Luzon dresses looking like Party City goddess gowns, but the looks were beautiful, well-done, and cohesive. I'm so disappointed that we don't get to see more Manila looks for the last few eps. I thought Monique might be in the top; perhaps gimmicky but so clever and cute. Darn it, I was really liking Naomi through tonight - her first LSFYL made me wish I had a local friend to go see a show with, because her back-bends and floor slides were SICKENING - and the twist on Sonny and Cher was fab. She deserved the win, but man, what a disappointment. It's a strategic way to play, and I don't fault her for it, just seems kinda crummy. But I blame the elimination structure, not the contestant. I actually would have been good with a Naomi win, but now it doesn't feel like she "beat the best." (This season's win will have the same De La asterisk.) Seeing the final six while Ru announced the challenge, I thought damn, how awesome that there are five queens of color, and one Caucasian - I was thrilled with those odds, as it's rather uncomfortable to see the Hall of Fame with all pasty faces featured when there are sooo many non-white queens who just slay. Without Manila, I'm fearful that the path just got easier for a Trinity reign. (And nothing against her, I just wanted to see a little deserved diversity.)

    S04.E07: Queens of Clubs

    Oh man, I never even read Doonesbury but have the entire Bloom County opus on my bookshelves. Thanks for the reminder! (Mid-life brain fart) I think that was me, lol! Manila is my all-time fave.
