    HBO spent money for Hader and Berg to develop that first pilot, then shoot it, then post-produce it...so I'm amazed on two counts. One, that Hader and Berg would even propose a concept without knowing how they'd flesh it out, and two, that HBO would have given them money without hearing a plan for this. Maybe the interview helps explain it.
  3. One funny moment that always comes to mind is the John Quinn episode: John: Hello, John Quinn. Rose: Hello, I'm Rose, Blanche's roommate. Won't you come in? John: Uh, could you give me a hand? Rose: Sure! *claps* It cracks me up every time.
  4. As far as I can remember, the timeline of the various shows pretty much lines up with when they aired, that's the sequence of events in this universe. I watched Defenders without having seen Luke Cage or Iron Fist, and pretty much managed to follow what was going on. Having then gone back to watch the shows in order, in terms of understanding the plot of Defenders, Iron Fist is the important one - you'll already know Luke Cage from S1 Jessica Jones, and I don't think anything from his show ties into the plot of Defenders, other than the existence of a couple of supporting characters perhaps. Daredevil gets name-checked once or twice in Luke Cage, but that's about it. Defenders directly ties into the beginning of Daredevil S3 - which from what you say you've already seen? So you'll already have seen how DD S3 picks up in a different place from where S2 left off - other than that, the events of Defenders don't really figure into the plot of that season, so you aren't missing much. Defenders is fun to watch in terms of seeing all these characters actually interacting, but the storyline isn't the best and the plot is all over the place. Luke Cage is a moody, broody kind of show - has some really entertaining characters, but can be very slow, and Luke himself is not the most engaging protagonist ever. Iron Fist is...I would say the bubblegum offering of the Netflix Marvel universe. It isn't a great show, Danny Rand is dumb as a box of rocks, but I actually found it a lot more fun to watch than Luke Cage. Not least because they remember to switch on the damn lights from time to time! And again it has some really entertaining characters. So...you aren't missing much if you decide not to watch, but then again you might have some fun with them if you do!

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    And her hair isn’t covering the whole outfit. She does actually look quite nice. Why are we all so shocked?

    That's as long as I lasted this morning and then . . . click. So gross.

    S01.E02: Stuntin' Like My Daddy

    The tape didn't show a face though (I mean, I gues maybe from the side), and it looked dark and grainy. Not sure how he'd recognize her from that and his adrenaline charged 1 minute he "met" her at the party.

    Q & A with ‘Strand’ https://www.amc.com/shows/fear-the-walking-dead/talk/2019/06/spoilers-fear-the-walking-dead-qa-colman-domingo-strand
  10. I think a good many of us would like Billy Miller back; but the "Billy" character has been ruined. Why not bring him back as a recast Chance? Dylan? I know it would be confusing and distracting (to say the least)...but it might work in the long run.
  11. Exactly! It’s like many professions. Book learning is one thing, and someone could be excellent at testing. Put that knowledge into teaching, and it’s another ballgame. It’s not easy to be able to train someone else. I detest training at my job, detest it I tell you!

    S02.E03: The End of the World

    Also I meant to add I am really enjoying Meryl Streep. Mary Louise is playing a mother in deep denial about her son and asking the questions a mother in that kind of denial should ask about her son who died suddenly and knows people are keeping secrets. Heck she just found out she has another grandson who hates an uncanny resemblance to her “other” dead son. “Are you sure he assaulted you?” ”Why do you have these pills?” A lesser actress would not be able to pull this character off.
  13. The story on the show is that they were arguing and that Larissa posted on social media that she needed help and one of her followers called the police.

    Would it kill you, Joe, if you pledged to give your own money to help the kids? Mika sat by with a smug expression nodding her head while do gooder Joe promised to fund raise.
  15. Gold panel. Jensen tell us how your really feel about that wire fight. (around 29 minutes in)

    .............am I the worst person on earth for thinking "THIS is the best picture you could get? For real, this picture is the one you're posting?" Good lord with going to the graveyard, it just seems a really unhealthy relationship to have with death and the dead. I told my wife, just toss me in a river, because I do not want anyone wasting a single second of their own life going to a pit full of bones to think about me. Do that wherever you are if you must! This was an episode she did every year, too. Derek's weird family pretending not to notice her insanely modified visage and massive breasts and ass while they had a picnic. What a fun visit!

    Richard Haas said China put 1 million Muslims in concentration camps but they don't allow images to be shown. Haas wants more immigration judges at the border.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    So she says her and her husband have different perspectives. I thought she only hung around people who shared her beliefs. She thinks only conservative couples have heavy media coverage. Does Bill and Hillary ring a bell? And Meghan honey the only time the media pays any attention to your marriage is when you and/or your husband does something stupid. And why shouldn't people come at you regarding his political issues? Aren't you a ride or die wife?
  19. I think she's just using her student loan $$ to pay for it.

    Joe said he would do a fundraiser for the kids toothbrushes & soap. Joe said he would make a few phone calls & make sure that supplies got to the kids. Joe attacked Trump for giving money to Saudi Arabia.
  21. Ep 6, "The Little Prince" “Morgan struggles to keep a potential disaster at bay as Luciana works with the group to undertake a challenging task despite impossible odds; Sarah, Strand and Charlie are presented with a solution when an old friend appears.”

    Joe said that when he was in Congress , these problems would be solved in a day.
  23. Possibly still leveraging the guilt trip on Mother Money Meri. Baby wants Bali? I'll just get my ass in gear and sell more LLRags to cover it.
  24. It takes more than going through training, and more than getting certified, to be an instructor or teacher. Literally thousands of people a year go through yoga training just like thousands go through training to teach spin class or Body Pump or Zumba etc. They pay the money, do the training, and get a paper that says you're qualified. But they aren't really instructors unless they have the ability to interact and connect and entertain with empathy, clarity, and heart to all sorts of people. People she might not normally give the time of day. People with real disabilities, or mental issues. It's not just getting in front of people and doing vinyasa and expecting them to follow along. Just like how teaching a cycling class isn't just turning on music and yelling at people. It's being in the studio before class to meet participants, especially the first timers. It's finding out if anyone is injured, disabled, or otherwise hindered from doing the class and demonstrating modifications. For yoga instructors in particular it's walking around the room and gently correcting form, readjusting a hip or misaligned shoulder. It's knowing what to do if someone gets injured during your class. It's hours and days of continuing training, studying, improving, practicing, learning. Being willing to accept criticism and learn from it. Is Mariah a people person? Will she have the ability to accept criticism from others and learn from it? Can she actually be someone she's never proven to be - someone with compassion and willingness to bend and learn and be warm and welcoming to all? Most of all, is Mariah able to spend an hour of her life NOT feeling it's ALL ABOUT HER? Being an instructor means knowing the class isn't there for her - she's there for the class. It's not the same as being an Instagram influencer and posting selfies of yourself and the 5 people you actually give a tenth of a shit about. I'm not even going to get into the fact that there are a lot more certified yoga instructors than there are teaching positions. Participants tend to show who they like and don't like by letting the clubs know, mostly by not showing up. When I was an instructor, if you consistently averaged less than 10 participants per class, you ended up on the sub list (and out) pretty quickly. Guess we'll wait and see if she can do a 180 and become a real people person.
  25. IMO i really feel Heather O will be point with Amy and Maddie completing Triangle.
