    S14 E19: Jack in the Box

    The show spent the hour judging him or it would have had Sam and Cas backing him or siding with him. Instead it manipulated the writing so that Dean was once again the bully who made Sam bend to his well. While I would love to see Dean snap (and I mean really snap) I doubt the show will actually go there. Instead it will probably be another very special lesson on how Dean was wrong in how he treated Jack, while focusing on Sam's guilt.

    So did I - on a mainframe!
  4. Nothing like committing a federal crime and facing prison time for some publicity. I have a sneaking suspicion that as much of a famewhore Kim is that she wouldn't want Lori Loughlin's kind of publicity (or her predicted prison sentence).

    Yes, but when he came into Q. house he had a cane! Look how disabled he is! A cane! Joss needs a new sweater because the moths have eaten that one.

    I love how Holt and Kevin make their "public displays of affection", aka the standard handshake, look hot. I would love a breakroom like the one Amy and Terry set up for everyone. Noise canceling headphones and a phone charger? YES PLEASE! I tend to get bothered on my breaks so that looks like heaven.

    I liked it when Adam called him out for standing up to be more intimidating. Of course Anthony then said very passive aggressively "Oh sorry if you were intimidated." Fortunately Adam was smart enough not to react. But then Anthony decides tell them all he'd win over all of them. Way to keep your allies!

    S05.E15: A Wise Father That Knows His Own Child

    Lucious is still a horrible person but like you said he's been making strides to better himself and his life. Cookie, on the other hand, is actively seeking a relationship (friendly or otherwise) with a man who's dangerous. Cross is nowhere near as trustworthy as her Cookie's own sisters. It took a conversation with her to realize that having intimate dinners with a virtual stranger might be a bad idea. The Cookie from earlier seasons was more perceptive and all around smarter and wouldn't have done that. It's unfair for Cookie to judge Lucious for a love child that was born before he'd even met her and wasn't ever made aware to him until 30 years later. Out of all the horrible things that Lucious has done and is doing, this one isn't really his fault.

    All Episodes Talk: Orange is the New Yuck!

    What is so miraculous about adopting? Don’t people do it everyday? She already day did it once so why is everyone soooooooo shocked by the second? Also, it’s all about Hoda adoption. What about Joel? Is he not on any of the adoption papers? The birth certificate? Today Jenna & Savannah were still talking about it like it was still a miracle and Hoda isn’t even there. Like I mentioned before I’m sure there will be another book by Hope with the name Hope in it like There’s Always Hope. So obvious. Because you know Hoda needs the money.

    I kind of got into the show by accident, but I'm enjoying it. However, I really hate the character of the chief's daughter, the new probie. She's not funny at all and disrupts the flow of the humor from the other guys.

    That looks familiar, but I can't remember what it is. Heh. For a minute I also thought of Carole King and so thought MAYBE it could be Wonder Woman. Then I was just going to give up. Suddenly I thought, C. King... Clark Kent. So I went with Superman. I don't pay attention to whether a comic book character is DC or Marvel or Schmo-ville.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I teach special education kids and volunteer for a local charity. I think a lot of people here have jobs or do other things that make a difference. Not the kindest observation. The only thing that bothers me is how bad the other contestants must feel. I know I’d be pissed if I was chosen to go up against the human computer. I can’t help but get the feeling that Jeopardy is playing into this guy. Why have so many of the Double Jeopardies been up in the lower amount numbers——-once he has a chance to build up a huge amount of money? And I’ve said this before, the DJ’s have been really easy, imho.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I can't even watch this anymore. I know the strategy of working up from the bottom of the categories makes sense since the lead is protected, but the fact that the other contestants pretty much have no chance whatsoever has robbed the game of any suspense. Much as I like learning new facts, I also want to watch something with at least a modicum of competition.

    S05.E11: They Did What?

    I'm gonna miss this show. Seriously, there's Oswald and Ed lamenting their lot in life, basically starting from the very bottom. They wind up pumping themselves up and hug . . . both carrying knives to stab the other in the back. But neither one of them can do it. Truly, they were the best bromance on geek genre TV. Honestly, had they kissed, would you have been shocked at all? Barbara lives, which is a nice surprise. Of course, something could happen to her in the epilogue, but she seems content in joining Jim and Lee in raising Barbara Lee Gordon. It could have been "Lee Barbara Gordon," but the woman giving birth should get the higher billing. A trio with baggage raising a baby? This is Gotham City. Why the fuck wouldn't it work?!? And Harvey could babysit! Also in the "Who would've guessed?" category . . . David Mazouz growing into the role of Bruce Wayne. I don't know if he'd be suited to play Batman years from now . . . but since DCEU has been screwing the pooch with Batman (as well as Superman), it's a possibility. And Camren Bicondova made for a good proto-Catwoman. Lots of chemistry between those two. Five seasons was enough. A shortened final season has worked, and unlike The Gifted, the series goes out under its own terms. Here's hoping the epilogue sticks the landing next week.
  18. Or he just thought she was hot? She’s looking much better since Botoxing her jaw or whatever it is she is doing. She also has the striking green eyes black hair combo.

    S15.E22: Head Over High Heels

    Why is this show becoming This Is Us? Pittsburgh. Dead Daddy Issues. Vodka in a water bottle. The list of scenes I fast-forwarded through: 1) DeLuca talking about how amazing he is with his 7243 cousins 2) Meredith and Bailey talking about how to introduce your new BF to your kids 3) That non-binary person's speech about hands and legs and whatever 4) The ending of Owen's magical therapy with him clutching his forehead or whatever he was supposed to be doing 5) DeLuca holding that baby while Meredith (presumably) looks on So, basically, the entire Meredith/DeLuca stuff. Life is SO MUCH easier that way. HAOG is really bad actor. And apparently, he's not an Ortho God after all, so let's just call him HA? Also, he's a total jerk and I hope he gets shipped off to San Francisco before the next episode. Is Amelia strangely and ridiculously obsessed with Owen's supposed love for Teddy because actually SHE is in love with her and doesn't know how to channel it? I mean, of course not, but it wouldn't be worse than what's really happening in this dumpster fire of a storyline, so why not. I would sign up for that! Wow, Jo looks like total crap. I'm actually mildly interested in how this trainwreck plays out.
  20. I have way more respect for Kelli and judy if they knew and supported Janelle and Katy. Coming out, even in 2019, is a big deal when you’re in the public eye. This is refreshing to see in the tight DCC world.

    I've never seen the actor outside of the 99 but I remembered him right away from last year - he was the mini Amy who she was soooooo annoyed with when she first became sergeant because all he wanted was to share ideas for how to make improvements to the squad. And he loved paper products too, maybe? I was really excited to see him again, and would enjoy seeing more of him if his new series doesn't work out. Holt, Kevin, and Jake were fantastic together, as always.

    That's not what happened. He stopped by Rickon and saw him die, looked up at Ramsey, and saw all of Ramsey's archers draw and prepare to fire. Jon's troops were all standing still (as was Jon himself) and would be cut down by the hail of arrows. He shouts out for them to go and goes himself, forward because he could see the arrows were being aimed at where he had been standing and also behind him into his front line, but for the moment, not in front of him. I don't know if it was in the show or in something external written about it, but I believe that not all Valeryans were able to ride or control dragons.

    S05.E11: They Did What?

    Was Jim drinking “Jankey Piss” whiskey? Seriously - is there a screen shot out there? I swear the bottle said “Jankey Piss.” No wonder Oswald turned down the drink.

    S14 E19: Jack in the Box

    FIrst thoughts: THAT WAS SO UNCOMFORTABLE! Talk about a divisive episode! Since I love them all, I'm having a hard time condemning anyone for their actions. But it's just so hard to see them all be right (to some extent) and yet all be so unhappy with what is happening! I take some comfort in the knowledge that we are SUPPOSED to be unhappy/uncomfortable/unsettled. There is not a simple, good solution if you like all the characters. Now if you hate X or Y, then it's easier to say a particular outcome should happen. But I think they did a good job of making me feel conflicted. Having said all this... I can totally see WHY they put him in the box. I can totally see WHY it was damaging to their own mental well-being to do so. Dean - his speech at the wake was perfect -- until you realized that he's just going through the motions. How is he even breathing at this point????? And the scene in the woods was good but insufficiently cathartic. He's still so ANGRY. And rightly so. I'm not remotely judging him for his anger. That anger is earned! But I feel like he's hanging on by a thread. It feels like at each step he's trying to do the right thing but in the meantime there's this defeaning howl going on inside him. It feels like everything he's saying is carefully controlled because if he opened his mouth uninhibited, he'd never stop screaming. I'm just in agony for this guy. And then there was the confrontation w/ Jack. "Accident". I nearly stopped breathing when Dean repeated the word. And the look on his face as he 'smiled' while Jack was going into the box? While Dean was clearly terrified of Jack letting loose, the look on his face was f*cking SCARY. Jensen Ackles is so very gifted. Dean is NOT okay. Not remotely. I don't know how to GET him okay. And I think Sam knows it. I think Sam wasn't sure at the beginning but he sees it now. Sam- it hurt just to watch him. He was so openly grieving and 'not okay.' Where Jensen brought the pain via anger, Jared brought the pain via sorrow. I do think Sam is coping better about Mary but I felt like Sam was damaging his own soul as he talked Jack into the box. This is like torture porn but it's with feels instead of saws. I was glad he voiced he didn't know if he could live with Jack in the box. So on the one hand, I think he too is at a loss on what to do and could rationalize what they did, on the other hand, I think his instinct that this was fundamentally not a long-term viable solution is spot on. Cas - Bless him for protecting Mary & John's heaven. It seems like every freakin' time an angel gets put in charge, their petty power trip goes to their head. In this case it's Duma who started to settle grievances. But Cas is just so determined to save Jack. And when everyone else is looking at him like he (Cas) has lost his mind, Cas just won't give up. I admire that. I admire that as much as he loves the brothers, he called them out on manipulatiing Jack. Because that's the part that blows -- that Jack went into the box trusting Sam and Dean were telling him the truth. Again, I don't blame them for lyiing. Mary didn't lie. Mary was atomized. But I can simultaneously accept why the boys had to lie and yet whole heartily agree that manipulating Jack was inherently a bad thing. Jack - Jack is a f*cking mess. Alex does a great job of showing him 'fake' sincerity and yet also be sincere. Duma knew JUST how to manipulate him. And Jack was so eager to please the Winchesters. That wasn't false. He wanted them to make it all better and go back to when he felt like family. And yet as Jack talked to them about "the accident", it range so HOLLOW. I honestly didn't know who scared me more tonight - Jack or Dean. Obviously Jack has all the power, but that's not the part that scared me. What scared me was the carefully controlled mask that they were wearing and how well the actors showed us the 'mask' versus a ton of other thoughts/feelings under the mask. Jack is also not okay. And yet it's a completely different 'not okay' than Dean's 'not okay'. Yes, I find myself highly conflicted. Simpler thoughts: - Did Jack really make angels out of people? Is that going to last? - Is Naomi really in a cell? - With Duma dead, who is #292304980987413 on the list to be "in charge of Heaven" now??? I watched this episode twice already. I want next week to come right away so I don't have to sit with this 'not okay' place that TFW is in right now.
