    Season Six Discussion

    The Russian Restaurant was weird. Is that the way they normally run things? Or did TLC set up something different for them so that they could try different dishes rather than ordering off a menu. Russians are really not known for their cuisine. Did they really just pick one at random? I also don't know why they were so afraid to ask the waitress what each item was. Especially this day in age when you have to worry about food allergies. NY pizza is awesome. I don't understand why they felt the need to eat it outside while it was raining.

    Yes. It's really hard to read him when it comes to Este.

    S31E01: You're In Our Race Now

    I don't know...when you commit to a penalty, are you stuck with it? Maybe...probably? At that point, the one guy (I can't remember which one is which) was done. Done-done-done. Even if he miraculously recovered from the cramps, he just flat out gave up. At that point, they were gambling that Rupert and Laura would get lost again on their way to the mat and they could finish their penalty and still beat them to the Phil greeting. After having observed Rupert's total incompetence throughout the show, this was not a bad or ill-conceived gamble.

    He might be concern one of the heathen workers might take a fancy to Jill.

    The Perfectionists

    While I'm all for expressing opinions, I must say that the idea of someone continuing to watch a show when they dislike pretty much everything about it is baffling to me.

    Season 7 2019 Rewatch

    Yah. I dithered about the reason myself. I knew it would be to cauterize in any other show, but thought that being killed/ wounded by a zomboni would also start the turning process. At Hardhome those who died and turned were not all killed by WW. But, again, we DID see the Night King make the "All Rise" motion, so it may have been down to him that the dead reanimated. He HAS become a lot more powerful over the seasons. I suppose that Thoros wasn't injured badly enough to require intervention (like I thought when I wrote that). The only method of intervention we know of, requires the insertion of dragonglass into the heart. (ala Benjen but we know he was attacked by WW) This IS annoying isn't it. The they-don't-need-to-know imperative of the show runner. We got that same kind of approach in all of the Winterfell scenes this episode. Sansa and Arya, all of a sudden, start acting like when they were children! We buy into it because it is familiar, but it was in "stark" contrast to how they had related to each other in the preceding episodes.

    I just discovered this series when I saw promos on TV. I'm in!

    Completely Unspoiled Speculation Thread

    Something like that, but, after adjusting my caffeine level, I see a flaw - The NK used the mark he put on Bran to find the 3ER cave. If he needed the 3ER to stop the cycle and "pull the thorn from his paw", why kill the Max von Sydow version of the 3ER without a second glance? Why would it have to be the Bran version of the 3ER who ends the cycle, and not the original version? Also, as a former human, wouldn't he understand that the best way to get help (rather than inducing flight) might not be to send a swarm of undead zombonis chasing after your potential helper? Hmmm...

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Well, I'll be the first to say I don't make a difference in the world - I'm an artist, just a small-timer not making any grand political statements etc. I'm okay with that. Not everyone has to be a philanthropist or otherwise devoted to the betterment of the world. I don't see that a sports bettor is making the world an appreciably worse place so I'm fine with that. As for having plenty of money already and yet still wanting to acquire more on Jeopardy - I don't see that as a crime either. Who knows what he is going to do with it and what effect that will have. I am intrigued by his success and the excerpts from the interviews remind me that we only see such a small slice of who a person is on the show.

    S07.E16 Lashanta's Story

    For some reason, the moment I saw her wig at the beginning, I knew this wouldn't go well. I have no idea why the wig was my big tip-off, but I just couldn't see success in that wig. And lordy, when a woman is telling a sad story about "doing what they have to" to support their kids, I usually assume stripping—which hey, strip away, I don't care. But when she was like, "I never prostituted myself" I was like, "Wait, what did I miss? Who said she was a prostitute?" And then my mind wandered as to what she was doing that was so similar or close to prostitution that she felt the need to disclaim it, and then I was all, "oh, so she was a prostitute." Heh. Which, again, not a healthy life choice but I don't judge. Then again, I believe all of this conversation was happening shortly after she peed off the side of her bed and I still can't get over that. I was easily confused, lol. And her blase attitude about her son being in prison was alarming. But this whole episode alarmed me.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, @SHD. I did get 24 correct on yesterday's game, counting FJ. That left 37 I did not know. I even missed all but one of President's Dogs. How sad is that? I guess Fala and Barney and Millie were clues in J6, which I did not play. As for James being shamed because he's a professional sports gambler instead of a Nobel-Prize-winning biophysicist or something that could "save the world," I put myself through college and worked my whole life to support myself. But if I were never born, nothing in the world would be changed. Maybe a few dog-show records would be different, but that's hardly earth shaking or society saving. So count me as big of a slacker as James. I hope everyone, including James, has been blessed with having an income from something he or she loves, something that makes that person happy. That's all I wish for anyone, including James.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    On the other hand, JB and M were clearly very good at gaslighting and brainwashing children. Their level of success there is nothing short of mind-boggling. ; ) So, hey, I guess we're all good at different things! ; )
  16. I wonder if stream is coming out of Jessa's ears because Deredick is going to school and building a new house, and Jermeme and Jinger is moving to LA for a new adventure, and Benny is doing nothing major exciting.

    ADA Peter Stone: Mothership Legacy Kid

    Could this be a probable reason why the story lines have been kind of substandard? I don't keep up with the going-ons of the labor talks of the unions concerning the entertainment industry. Do tv shows bid on episode scripts (or script writing teams) and the best ones go for the most money?

    S31E01: You're In Our Race Now

    You’d think by this time I’d know, but I don’t— when Rupert and Laura showed up at the mountain could Art or JJ (whichever was doing the task) have tried completing it again? Or were they committed to the 4 hour wait? I mean, at that point what was there to lose by trying and trying until it was over? It looked like some of the teams were more disadvantaged by drizzle making the mountain extra slippery. And Mike White almost won last season.

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    You noticed that too, huh? Without violating the boards on boards rule, I feel the same way. And I'm left feeling like I "just don't get it" if I mention it. Anyway, back on topic. Meghan is such a lovely woman and I can't wait to see the newest royal. As others have mentioned above, though, I'm willing to wait until Meghan and Harry are ready for the reveal. I'm still Team Kate though! 😉

    S08.E01: Winterfell

    I'm pretty sure Bran has said that he can see anything that has happened and is happening. Nothing about what will happen.
  21. Not sure where to post this..Just want to say...WOW! Her ring is stunning and she looks very happy.

    JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

    That is one of the best dresses I've seen on a Duggar. The colors and the pattern are both good. It gives her body a nice shape.
  23. Happy for Jinelle. I was always wondering whatever happened to the boyfriend she left in Australia. The DCC had more diversity than I thought.

    The Perfectionists

    This show is already worse than PLL ever was. The characters motivation is a mess, the plot an even bigger mess, the dialogue is atrocious and the cast is ridiculously small. As crazy a place as Rosewood as was, it felt alive, it felt real. Here the characters keep talking about exams and homework and parents and so on but we barely see any of that. The plot moves at a breakneck speed, probably in the hopes of hiding the Antarctica-sized plot holes it in. Truth serum? Really, show? So based on nothing but a gum wrapper and the guy being a jerk they wanted to drug this Mason and use a "truth serum" on him? And when this (shockingly) doesn't work, Caitlin hits him on the head? Even Spencer with her "Everyone is A" tendencies needed several season to start acting so stupidly. The Idiot Trio aren't friends, have no reason to trust each other or even to believe that it wasn't one of them who killed Nolan - they aren't characters, they are plot devices. I don't care that Caitlin might die or go to jail for hitting Mason on the head because the show hasn't given me a reason to care. She is as two dimensional as they come. At least the actress is decent, unlike the one who plays Ava who is horrible. Taylor faked her death because somebody tried to kill her (something extremely rare in the real world but apparently very common in the PLL world). A computer program picked Alison because she was really similar to Taylor and thus best suited to try to find her (*head, meet desk*). Alison says Taylor's mom was obviously grieving but we really saw nothing of the sort. One scene ends with Taylor yelling at Alison to get out, after the commercial break they are calmly talking outside? And last but not least, Taylor doesn't really resemble Alison all that much. I can't be the only one who laughed out loud when Alison said "Nolan trusted me, Taylor". She literally met the guy for the first time in episode one, had a very brief conversation with him and then he died. She didn't know him at all and neither did he know her. Him "trusting" her is just as contrived and silly as everything else in the show. If there had been time for the viewers to get to know Nolan (even though he was great big jerk) and for him to have a genuine reason to trust Alison, what she said would have sounded convincing and her attempts to investigate his death at least somewhat plausible. As it is, I can't help asking why she is even involved in this mess. Tanner 2.0 lures a murder suspect into the woods to confront her about... something for some reason. Amazingly, her genius plan doesn't work. Alex and Mary Drake are at large but Alison is concerned with some randos she just met? Okay, show.
