    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Ted McGinley. I never heard the Joke coke rumor (Woodruff taking the recipe with him), but it sounds funny. I think Coke had been using corn syrup before that point however. At least since the mid 70s. The Coke that gets bottled in Mexico is the same original formula Coke that your parents and grandparents had from the 30s onward. It uses sugar. I find it in Sam's Club all the time.

    Ah, yes. The photo of a 15 year old girl, naked, wrapped in a bed sheet that VF called a "beautiful" and "natural pose." What the hell were her parents thinking?
  6. Actually it is not as weird as you think it is! SAD, but not necessarily uncommon. I have experience in nursing home residents and family values. I could write a book about the differences and perceptions. You sound like a wonderful and dutiful daughter. You will have no regrets, trust me.

    I just took it that in case one got picked up at first contact the police couldn’t figure out where they had been. But then they hit local pharmacies before flying to the desert locations

    I grew up listening Herb Alpert's music. I'm pleased to hear that he is actively giving back to the community, and has been doing so for a while. https://www.wbgo.org/post/herb-alpert-fully-fund-major-renovation-harlem-school-arts?fbclid=IwAR2F4Iss1OUs688a2qSDGa5YZ1R_a5rWn_Pcquu1IsB87DoY9zQxey_jg4s#stream/0

    so why was the guy (Louis?) who vouched for Bosch not one of the enslaved? And the VA doc who showed up in both places-- was he in on the whole deal, or just writing too many scripts?

    S06.E19: Lumbar Support and Old Pork

    Regarding the groceries: have these people not heard of this invention called a freezer? Fresh fruit & vegetables you generally don't freeze, but all the meat could be cooked and frozen or frozen uncooked. I didn't understand Bonnie's mad rush to eat everything. Any dry goods keep almost indefinitely. The car I could see, especially one you had to finance for six years.

    S04.E17: I'm in Love

    Yes. If they were trying to say that the reduction of songs in her head was indicative of her getting healthier mentally but then also that the songs in her head are beautiful and the basis of a possible new career for her to pursue, that doesn't make much sense. If the songs in her head were something that she really loved and a big part of "who she really is," then they shouldn't have lessened. The subject should have changed as she got better, but the number or frequency of them shouldn't have. Yep, the "Bachelor" stuff was a complete waste of time if that was going to be the ending. The time jump confused me so much. I kept having to look at Paula's outfit to figure out which scenes were "a year ago" and which were "now." I don't see the point of having a time jump just for the "big reveal" to be "I choose myself." I can see that maybe she never really loved any of them. But I could also see her choosing one of them, particularly Nathaniel or Greg. Nathaniel is probably the best match in terms of personality IF he really retains his personal growth at being no longer mean. If Greg really doesn't like anything, I don't see Rebecca doing well with that long term. And I just don't think it would be healthy to be with Josh - she stalked him and that just doesn't seem like a good basis for a relationship. They just made such an emphasis on Rebecca's love life that it seems like a real cop-out to continue to build it up until the 11th hour (heh) and then say, "Psych! She chooses none of them!" I really liked this show, though, and will miss it. My favorite thing of all was the friendship that developed with Rebecca, Paula, Valencia, and Heather. That was a great friend group and I don't like that Valencia was supposed to have moved to NY because I need to think of the four of them being TOGETHA 4EVA. 🙂 I also really loved how Paula's story turned out, even though IMO we didn't get get to see enough of her new office (understandably) for me to "feel it" when Paula said she loved it there. I didn't see a lot to "love" with their weird obsession with those suits. Not sure if there was some way for them to quickly show instead of tell how great the office was, but IMO they didn't achieve it. On a superficial note, all this season Rebecca's hair drove me crazy. It was so cute in the first season. It looks so much better short! If the actress just wanted to grow it long that's totally her prerogative, but it was so cute short and they rarely styled it once it got longer. It made sense for the first few episodes of season 4 that Rebecca's hair would just be straggly, but after that she just never styled it? The only time they ever styled it again was for the fantasy rom-com episode.
  13. And like most things, the more you insist you are that thing, the more I think you are not.

    Not necessarily. A certain former host announced nearly 60 days prior to departure, a big deal was made of it, lots of hoopla. Most here anyway, believe that former host was canned.

    S14 E19: Jack in the Box

    His acting in this episode was superlative however that scene and the following in front of the box just blew me away. I know what you mean about him almost not looking like Dean. In my second rewatch I started to look for blinking eyes. Is Dean blinking enough. I mean... yes crying in the woods was Dean. The guy sitting at the table at the end... the guy above.... Angel's can hide inside their vessels unbeknowst (Gadreel). But let's just say stupid Jack who in a hubric moment thinks he is the hero that has defeated the monster and swallows his grace which looks to be a total set-up by a nemesis who is fond of long con set-ups designed to demoralize Dean into submission. The monster survived and is hiding somehow weakened. However he has goaded Jack into losing his soul and taking enough grace into becoming a nephilim again. Maybe Michael is in Jack regaining strength and is the inner voice that taunted him about losing his soul causing him to lose his temper and annihilate Mary. At any rate... maybe Dean is just righteously angry. Maybe Michael slipped back in after Jack deconstructed. Now he needs Dean to kill Jack to steal the nephilim grace in a sacrifice that will summon God. IDK. I do think Dean's eyes were looking more like Michael's and Jensen dropped that hint about the blinking. I also think it's weird Dean derided God as being a writer of stories in his underwear after Michael said something similar in the same monologue as he indicated he would like to catch up with him and kill him. ???
  16. I actually think being the highest-rated show should give them the confidence to be more bold with Iris and WestAllen. Plus DC has seen the evidence in dollars in the success of "Black Panther", Jason Mamoa's "Aquaman" (which includes the interracial coupling of Mera and Arthur), and "Scandal" to name a few recent hits featuring Black women, a POC lead, and IR couplings. So, there's no excuse to say that they (POCs, IR couplings) don't sell in the marketplace. Plus there are more commercials than ever featuring IR couples, which suggests advertisers recognize the sea change happening in the marketplace. In fact, correct me if I'm wrong, but, right now DC, is doing slightly better in showing IR couples and POCs as leads or co-leads than Marvel right now. It's only recently in 2018, with "Into the Spider verse" (an animated film) and "Black Panther" that Marvel has really put POCs at the forefront of their offerings. DC put Candice Patton as the female lead in 2014, and it was so successful, they're keeping Iris Black in the DCEU, and have made her Black for the recent comic story. There's no legitimate excuse to not treat Iris or WestAllen as well as they would a White character or a White couple on their network.

    Days of our lives had the first gay male wedding on television via Wilson. Becky/Gabourey looks amazing and Kai/Jamal do nothing for me as a couple. At least Jamal will soon be gone and I really don't know how I feel about that..

    I too was surprised David seemed to not know what a scabbard is. (And it is clever of Farberware to put a sharpener inside it. I haven't seen that before).
  23. In the Wells Fargo home mortgage ad, is it the doggess or a female narrator speaking? I'm not sure, but I think the doggess' lips are moving or not but then she describes the yard as a bathroom... the jury is still out as far as I am concerned. :-D

    Darn. I think she could have worked. Oh, well. She and Liz actually did a pretty cute Parent Trap scene recreation. I didn't, either. I think they put a latex mask on her.

    TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    Good and fair assessment on The Slipper and the Rose, you guys. :) I love it, even if I have to agree that the ending drags quite terribly. Then again, I sometimes feel that way about All About Eve (and I love it way more than The Slipper and the Rose!). Just goes to show that flaws don't always have to dampen our enjoyment of a movie (so go jump in a lake, CinemaSins).
