    BTVS Love/Relationships

    And even though Willoz wasn't about the power at the very beginning, they were nevertheless shown as quite extraordinary teens, I must say. Judging from the way they met in What's My Line, Part 1... Some leading software company was clearly interested in two wonder kids. Computer genius vs prison guard? You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know who'll win in the end. [Are there ary fanfics about W/O ending up in prison where Xander works as a warden? Stripsearching Oz is sure as hell not in the top 5 of Xander's dreams but Willow?.. That's another case...] Willow should have met Anya or Kennedy back in '97 so they could give her a master class in how to win the boy. No, she didn't have to undress in front of Xander and beg him to remove his clothing, but asking the guy out for coffee could've been a decent beginning... Most fans, media and fanfiction writers continue to claim Oz was the "best" for Willow. But I do not remember anyone bothering with explaining why and how. Just like I can't recall any coherent arguments why exactly would Xillow have "never worked". It's not as if either X/W or the audience were ever given a chance to test that theory (like, say, Dawson and Joey together with Creek's viewers). The "fluke" that many cite as a proof of their "never Xillow" bullshit, doesn't count since it wasn't a relationship in the strict sense of the term. Therefore we have zero evidence to strengthen the "X/W can only be friends and nothing more" crowd's claims... JMO, of course. Btw, funny how Willow was given an opportunity to date three completely different persons (taciturn and relaxed Oz, shy and sanctimonious Tara, confident and agressive Kennedy) while Xander remained stuck with the corpse ghost of Cordelia for the remainder of the series. Anya was just a sloppy watered down version of Queen Bitch of Sunnydale High with all the sarcasm and stuff. Because, God forbid, Xander gets a chance to meet someone different and have more or less happy relationship. Sigh.

    Good Trouble

    I found the episode a little boring, to tell the truth. The outcome of the trial was expected but I, too, am confused about what Malika is doing - and how she knows exactly where to go to get what she wants. Confront the Judge? She needs to go through he assistant and she went through another door. The cut/uncut thing was silly. It didn't bother me, I just don't know why it was even a topic. Do young people really freak out about this, is it so alien to them? In a show that throws so much at once, that was an unusual diversion. I like Jamie too. I am already tired of Gael's brooding but he was right about Callie. The writers brought her from a teenager to young adult but the only thing that grew was her arrogance. She feels that she is always right, and that would be fine if she didn't feel the need to make everyone agree with her at any cost. And it looks like that could cost her her future - but I don't think the writers are going there. They will probably have the judge give her second, third...tenth chances. I think the story with Marianna is interesting. First the mansplaining from last season and now, even when the women would "have the upper hand", they still have to deal with the dynamics of the workplace, which is still very male dominated. I am sure this type of thing happens in places like that. I hope they don't mess up the Evan character. He was well done last season but he seemed not himself in this episode, inconsistent with his quirks. They moved him too fast from A to B to satisfy Mariana's story (maybe?)

    S03 E05: Unknown Caller

    So, I’m like screaming at the screen “noooooo”, Serena is gonna screw you over! After all that’s happened, I can’t believe that June would be so damn stupid! It’s completely out of character for her to trust any of these people! Has she learned NOTHING?? UGH! When the men at their stupid meeting said they would get the baby back by any means necessary (not an exact quote), I knew something was up. I’m worried that the council is gonna smuggle some men into Canada to steal the baby back! Maybe June should ask Serena if she wants Nicole to have her finger chopped off by the council for daring to READ when she grows up? STUPID WOMEN! They have all learned nothing! Not Serena, not June — no one! And, when did Serena slip Luke that mix tape anyway? I didn’t see her give it to him, unless it was in the box that held the locket?? Anyone see how he got that? I didn’t even see Serena open that parcel that said something like “if you need me”. I must have blinked and missed it.

    Yes, in that is probably the reason for Kyle's neediness.

    White Collar

    In my mind, there's something that happens later that allows Neal to come back--along the lines of how Sherlock got back into the US, Patrick got roped back in after Red John, etc. I just want to be able to picture them all still having adventures. I do think the finale is emotionally powerful. It's just now how I want to picture the characters' futures, so I do a little mental fanfic. I feel terrible for both Peter and Mozzie after Neal's "death" but the one I find myself thinking about most often is June. 😪

    From the kid that was nearly beheaded in the boat Tyler and Korey rammed into to the guy on the motorbike that Team Fun cut off, I don't think I've ever seen an episode where so many locals were in danger! I'm adding Smit Giethoorn to my list of dream destinations but maybe on a less busy day.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    In a mega-church I attended for a short period, the screens were also used to alert parents that they needed to come get their children from the children's bible study group. Each child would be assigned a number and they would put the numbers in the lower corner of the screen. It usually meant that the child was acting up.

    The Avengers

    The best spy show of them all—charming, witty, intelligent, with a serving of man-eating plants, teddy bear costumes, evil Santa Clauses, diabolical masterminds, and Peter Cushing-controlled robots on the side. For everyone who hasn’t seen this—what are you waiting for? For longtime fans—isn’t it time you saw it again? 😉 There’s a great fan-site here, though the guy who owns it has stopped updating it. My favorite years are unsurprisingly with the lovely Emma Peel (Diana Rigg), Steed’s perfect partner. What say you?

    S09.E19: Thirst Impressions

    Anyone else ever noticed that Lisa Vander pump only has one good friend at a time period in the beginning it was Kyle, than she tossed her aside for brandi; then she pushed her aside, and it was dorite. Kyle makes a mistake in wanting lisa's friendship so badly. Lisa will just continue to keep her at a distance because Kyle comes across as too needy. Lisa loves to manipulate like that.
  13. It is?! Gah! I love to see the weather fronts using Ventusky and when I typed Beverley Hills in it gave a location on the east coast so it was a bit twistedy twisted. Thank you for correcting me 918LUX. Regarding Kyle, there’s an old early UK 70s sitcom ‘star’ called Hilda Baker. She was a little barrel of a woman who’s persona so fits her. Her mannerisms and pretence of ‘poshness’ whilst being so rough and uncouth is uncannily like Kyle, even the way she walks. I’d love to post a link to show what I mean - can you tell me how to do that please?

    I tend to feel sorry for Erica because she seemed so guarded. She wanted to be an actress, but she has to be more vulnerable.

    That Brie has continued to do stuff like that even after the movie was released is giving me a lot of confidence in her as she becomes the face of the MCU.

    When They See Us

    I finished the last episode in a puddle of anger and then admiration for the now men. How Korey survived is nothing more than the proverbial heroism. And to see him, to see his real face, after seeing what happened to him, I just couldn't. I makes me so angry that those thugs who plotted against the kids, who continued (continue still) to even deny a "mistake", since they would not ever confess to their own crime, cannot feel empathy. I have privileges that would likely protect me from things that happen to black and brown people, but I felt my chest tightening for the whole hour and a half of the last episode, for the whole series. I felt pain. I guess I can call myself human. Those racists can't, not anymore. Part of their humanity was consumed by their arrogance, entitlement and inability to see the other person - all fueled by their bigotry.

    S06.E02: Flush with Love

    I'm here for Diana's switch from statement necklaces to statement earrings and shut up Lauren, if there's one person not in need of a makeover on this show it's Diana! Better take care of Liza who looked terrible with those two bobby pins sadly placed above her temples in limp hair and the burlap cape (the Nancy Pelosi/Melania outfit was miles better). Anyhow I loved Diana's plot. I loved her sashaying out of the meeting about the focus group vetting (which was hilarious and kudos to the lady presenting the data). She screwed up with Enzo, but the voice-over in her words at the end was great. Maybe she should switch to writing herself. Enzo and Diana are the only couple worth rooting for but that's hardly news anymore. Kelsey keeps being the most grating character and I have no idea why Liza is still supporting her. She's paranoid and insecure and can't handle pressure. Reverse-engineering a movie-script is hardly the stroke of genius Liza claimed it to be. And her taking a strong stance with Quinn wasn't convincing either. Also not making sense: Kelsey getting back in bed with Zane (yes, he is hot - but he is also trouble and she knows it). Liza and Charles have a cloud of doom hanging above their heads. When they embraced at the end I was hoping the camera would not swerve around to show us Liza's concerned face. But of course they went there. Josh and Liza shopping for baby stuff was once again great and annoying at the same time. They have an easy chemistry together but are we supposed to root for them?

    I’m laying in bed. I was knocked down and sorta trampled by my horse yesterday. Everything hurts as I’m waking up. But I take inspiration from the brave poundticipants like Jennifer and Schenee and James K and I WILL get out of this bed with a smile and face the day with a can do attitude.

    Crowded Places was my favorite of the three, as well. I didn't even really like Green Light at all, actually, and was struggling to see why everyone was creaming their jeans over it. I felt like all they needed to do was give the vocals the voice box treatment and it could've been an old Zapp and Roger song. Crowded Places, on the other hand, had a memorable melody and strong point of view. I liked the line in the original version about looking up the weather where the person is. And I liked the little trip around the globe bridge in the revamp. Too bad. I thought it could have been a powerful, popular ballad. ETA: My eyes rolled so far back into my head when Ryan Tedder said the reason he wanted to rewrite the entire song and retitle it was because the word "flicker" is easily confused with "flick her" accompanied by junior high school level "humorous" gesturing - dude...just say you didn't care for the freaking song and wanted to enter one of your own instead.

    Ooh. Darryl is also a good name. And then when I bring in Neo’s replacement someday I also can name that dog Darryl. “This is my dog Darryl, and this is my other dog Darryl.”

    S09.E02: Something Borrowed, Something New

    Elizabeth/"He's a 'J'!" Jamie---I'm okay with her Duchess Fergie-like personality. But I have never cared for the underlying aggression in the cake-smushing "tradition." Going for Big Red's eyes was not a good look on Jamie Boy. His "Are you punctual?" is sure to be a story line of frustration and tears! Is this couple going to be our very own "Odd Couple," with Jamie as Fussy Felix?! Amber/Matt---I wonder which is weirder, marrying a stranger or marrying a twin? Or not inviting either parent to one's wedding? Anyhoo, man, was the bride hot to trot or what?! Amber is a self-described tomboy; she'll find a way to climb that tree! But we were shown tears in her future and hints of a wandering eye in his, so we might have another "Case of the Too-Soon Sex"! Deonna/Greg---Am I the only one who thinks his head is unusually small? She gave us a Lukewarm "I don't kiss on the first date" altar claim. Not a date, Dee! Maybe I'll have more to say after re-watching! All in all, I think each couple as of what we've been shown has potential. I'm hooked, so it's a No-Spoiler Season for me!
