  1. I want to like Amelia and Bennett but between the pit hair, the veiled trio, and the gaping maw of death it’s hard. Okay maybe it just Amelia I’m struggling with. I agree with the poster who said these aren’t my people. I don’t mind some odd and quirky but I feel like this is quirky overload. Like going to the fair and eating cotton candy, a funnel cake and a snow cone and then having a sugar stomach ache. Way too much all at once. And the ice cream, freezer, cherries and banana sex discussion was ridiculous and went on for far too long. I want to say poor Henry but good grief gravy why is this guy on this show?!? He is painfully uncomfortable and can’t even make minimal chit chat. Not that I think his bride is a prize. If she thinks marriage is going to be like a romantic movie she is going to be so disappointed. I wonder if Henry thought doing this show might wake up whichever one of his honey bees he has buzzing around him that he desires and they’d suddenly realize he’s more than “just a friend”. Ain’t going to happen dude. I hope Woody is the guy who showed up at the wedding and not the player that was in the pre-wedding shows. I loved how easily the dad and stepdad got along. What a nice change to see compared to many situations. Maybe they can be a force of good in Woody’s life. He sounds like he would really like to have an older man’s influence in his life. Who else? Oh yeah Brett, who thinks he is sexy and smooth but is not quite last call level of yuck but it’s getting late and the bar is emptying out. I think Olivia is going to lose her optimism sooner rather than later. I am holding hope for Miles because he seems so genuine and nice but I can’t tell if his bride is into him or just appreciates a good foot rub.
  2. Blame quarantine, but I’ve been rewatching The 100. Which reminds me how frustrated I am that this final season has our original kru split up and spread out. Can’t we, the weary loyal few, who have stuck by this show through it’s good and very bad, get some pay off of togetherness at least? It also reminded me how horrible Murphy was originally, and how Bellamy started out as a massive jerk. Things I had let myself forget. Things I hadn’t forgotten were that I didn’t like Clarke from the get go, Lincoln was a beautiful man, and Jaha was a bit of a nut job. I’m completely not interested in stupid, evil hada and his storyline of vengeance and domination. And I have a soft spot for the actor because he was Papa Argent on Teen Wolf so it’s almost a struggle to have this much disinterest. I have some mild interest in the den of mind controlled monks and the coming human-ending war. Mainly because I still love Octavia and, even at their mind controlled worst, they don’t seem as dumb as the prime believers and their system of stupidity.
  3. Team Miles here. I always feel I need to add the disclaimer, “for the time being” since as things progress crap rears it’s ugly head and I’m off anyone’s team train. I’m hoping Karen gives him a chance. I can’t tell if she will or is just trying to look like she’ll try. Brett’s family is a big ole bag of suck. His brothers make him almost look good in comparison. I get a strong sense of compensating for something with him. I think Olivia was nervous and babbling but she seems sweet and sincere. Woody is too on for me. There’s flirting with your wife and then there is nonstop smooze. He exhausts me. Amani may eat it up or get tired quickly. Surprisingly Bennett, the guy with no bathroom and dirty socks, looked like an ordinary guy compared to Amelia‘s circus crew. The bridesmaids outfits and unicycle entrance give quirky a bad name. That’s not quirky it’s just stupid. And ugly. Stupid ugly. And I would’ve paid Bennett in clean socks if he would’ve reached over and closed Amelia’s mouth for her when she kept gaping at him. Just once when someone has a do or die option about a pet I’d like to see an opt out. Who was it that had a cat allergy and was supposed to get over in a prior season? And the same with someone who stated they didn’t care for dogs. For instance if the vows included “and love my cat” I’d like to see someone interrupt with an “Excuse me? Did you say cat? Nope. Allergic. Not taking meds every day. I told the experts that was a deal breaker.” And then just walk off shaking their head. Of course why would the “experts” care about that type of compatibility when they match someone who wants stability and is ready to start a family with someone who has had 14 jobs in the past two years and wants kids in maybe a decade? Sigh.
  4. The quirky couple overload was annoying. I’m hoping they both have a toned down setting. I agree with y’all who got a bit of a pretentious vibe with the idea that a tux was far too bougie to wear. It’s your wedding you hat bedazzled thespian. I can’t hear Woody’s name without adding Woodpecker to it. And he is diminutive and seems truly annoying like a woodpecker can be so there’s that. I think he annoys me more than over the top obvious d-bag Brett... Brent? Brad? Still don’t know these folks names yet. The lady that spoke up and said she’d take a nice guy during the brides meet up seemed so sincere. However the problem sometimes seems to be that many of the ladies (and guys) who go on these shows say they want nice, stable and ready to be serious but then complain about needing more excitement or spark and forget how well nice and kind ages in life.
  5. Welp that’s four episodes gone. So many people I don’t know or don’t care about or both. Why can’t this final season be OriginalKru having a actual storyline together and ending things with either a happy homeland or burning the human race down? This hodgepodge mess of storylines and groups I don’t give a float about is disappointing. A few of the things that stood out the most to me after binging all four episodes is that Hope the Doll was creepy as crap, Echo is a crap character, and I wish Blodreina would make a reappearance and clean up some of the crap these storylines are spewing.
  6. I would like, just once, for a celebrity couple to put out an announcement that they broke up and that be the whole announcement. If questioned further, they can tell the press to make up anything they want, because that’s what usually happens anyway. Aa far as dumb celebrity baby names, in the past year I’ve met two young children named Shady. I think I’d rather go by Apple or Saint before shady. But I’m old so maybe shady means something new rather than sneaky or dishonest.
  7. Amanda, out of the whole Bach crew, strikes me as one of the most willing to sell anything and everything for a moment of “fame,” and with that group that says a lot. I feel sorry for her girls who have never known anything other than being used as props for their mom’s social media influencer goals. I can see her trying to get back on a Bach show when they resume just to reup her name recognition in that crowd. Ick.
  8. I’ve always been meh about Connie Britton but she has now moved from meh to all out boring blah. What a waste of her return and what a crock of crap she tried to sell to Buck. You could have picked up a phone woman. I didn’t dislike this episode it just felt... I don’t know... oddly uneventful. Although the beagle in the booties was fantastic!
  9. That moment really got to me too. The way they all calmly and stoically walked in as the chaos was winding down, pulled up a chair and got to work was a quietly profound moment in my opinion. Yes this show is unrealistic and often uneven but it somehow works for me. It’s one of only a couple I bother with during lock down. I find myself rewatching comfort food tv or just skipping screen time instead but 911 and The Rookie I still check out.
  10. I almost always find ScreenRant’s Pitch Meetings on YouTube funny. This one was also slightly sad because of references to the mistreatment of animals and the nasty nature of the people involved. It did reinforce my complete non-interest in watching. Side note: if you’ve never watched Pitch Meetings it is a rabbit hole that can suck you in for an enjoyable few hours.
  11. Reading through posts it struck me that my old is showing. The thought of driving Brandon around when he and Taylor obviously are not only doomed but don’t like each other is beyond me! As a younger woman maybe I would have. Maybe I would have wanted to look good on tv, or maybe I would have had hope, or maybe he could have sweet talked me. But today’s me? No way! I’ve found the older I get the less I put up with things I find wrong or dislike or just am uninterested in and the easier it is not to care what people think. It’s oddly freeing. On a personal note, not diagnosing anyone on the show, I was in a relationship with a charismatic psychopath for a few years. He makes Michael and Zach look like t-ball players lost in the majors. His lies were complicated and multi layered and he had no trouble keeping everything straight. I’m sure it helps that he is brilliant, has great recall and is incredibly polished and charming. These liars are just bad at it. I think both Zach and Michael probably believe they’re good at deception and, especially in Zach’s case, think their charm covers a multitude of sins. Ehh, no. My personal hell on earth man had manipulated his psychiatrist so completely she threatened me for being abusive and cruel to him. (He saw her to sell his damaged childhood story but mainly for various drugs that he charmed out of her depending on his mood. He took some recreationally and sold some. Mainly he just enjoyed manipulating her like he does everyone.) He can charm and fool so easily. Once I finally became aware of the truth of it all watching him do so was horrifyingly fascinating. It was easy for him. Scarily easy. These guys can’t even keep their lies straight for a conversation. And now that I’ve blithered on for awhile I’m not even sure what my point is other than Michael and Zach suck and suck at the lying. And if I’m going to mention sucking I should mention Katie. She sucks joy and fun out of everything.
  12. Go Meka! I don’t know how she’s put up with his lying craziness for this long. Repetitive and random lying is not a red flag it’s a huge honking red eighteen wheeler barreling down on you. He’s also a bad liar which is pathetic. If you’re going to be a liar at least learn your freaking trade and figure out how to do it. Michael is a loser liar. Meka needs to run away from him Mindy. Sigh. I want to be glad for her but I find her exhausting. Zach told her almost immediately he wasn’t attracted and then repeated it several times. She does seem to stay calm and even keeled. I wonder if she was more passionately emotional it would’ve made a difference? Nah, probably not. And Zach falls into the loser category too. He wants to be slick and sell that he’s cool and clever but his word salad mix of bumbling excuses and half truths just don’t cut it. If you’re going to be a sneaky butt learn that trade too. Dang the crap men are bad at their crap this season. Katie sucks. I’d say a lot more but I think I’d end up being mean. Really, really mean. I can’t stand her. Whiny baby girl child. If she’s this much of a drag about dreams now can you imagine in a few years? Ugh. What a bore. Derek deserves better. By a long, wide mile. I think Austin and Jess are this season’s non-drama couple and the producers are having to drum up something to show on air. Enter the love conversation. I have hope for them. Screamy guy and bad wig (their names have escaped me) are boring. They are doomed. We all know it. I don’t care about them. The dog is pretty though. But c’mon he can do better than screamy guy as a hump date.
  13. Michael: I teach yoga three days a week. Correction, I teach yoga three days a month. Correction, I taught yoga three times at home to myself. Correction, I’ve watched a yoga video three times. Correction, I’ve said the word yoga three times today.
  14. I think Michael is a shady liar and has been lying since he lied about demanding sex on the airplane. I don’t care if Meka shrieks like a crazy crow-headed woman with her wings on fire. He is a liar. And he seems surprised that he gets caught. So he’s a bad liar as well. And yes his code word for sex is vulnerable. Meka should dump his lying butt. Katie's high self esteem might be admirable if she wasn’t so smug and condescending. Woo me. Dominate me. Prove your worth. Shut up girl who is still hung up on her f**k buddy. I think Taylor is an idiot and was matched well with another idiot. However I think Brandon showed his idiotness more openly and often and something about him seems fishy but I don’t know precisely what it is. They both need to sit down and shut up. Zach and Mindy are uncomfortable to watch. Yes he’s being a jerk but I think she’s being stupid. Why won’t she let it go? He has been pretty clear. She’s not unattractive I wish she’d just let him go. Austin and Jessica are this year’s winner so far. I hope they make it! Go team!
  15. I haven’t watched the original recipe shows with any regularity for some time. I’ve caught an episode or two here and there, but I’ve only watched all of BIP and WG these past few years. I am all in for a Clare season! I’ve had a soft spot for her for awhile. Like many of you, I like the idea of a slightly older demographic, possibly less social influencer wannabes, and someone who may seriously want a partner. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve been so excited about the Bachelor franchise. Go Clare!
