  1. A quack to me is a fake, someone with no credentials. A "gravy train" biller implies to me someone padding charges. Both of those things are different from someone who upsells procedures, which is not unethical and certainly not illegal. You also stated dentists have no credentialing or general standards of practice, which again is absolutely false if you are speaking of the US. I have no idea where you got that information. Of course there are some bad eggs but no more than in any other profession. And stating that anyone can become a dentist is just silly. It takes eight years of
  2. I'm not sure where you heard this, but it is absolutely untrue. I dont have a problem believing the "intelligent side" comment was made; I have a big problem believing it was aimed at Kari!
  3. I watched the preview too, and I'm disappointed that apparently TLC has decided that what we want to see is the couples fighting with each other at the tell-all. Seriously, I want to hear them answer questions about their own relationships; I'm not all that interested in their critiques of the other participants. As we've seen in the past, the intercouple bickering tends to take over everything else. Natalie and Mike are acting as twitchy and psychotic as ever. And Shawn's new position as Reigning Queen of All 90-Day Spin-Offs has definitely not made her any more likable.
  4. It's come out on social media that Ethan's parents split up at some point after the baby was born, but I don't think that's been mentioned on the show.
  5. I also saw this 50-plus years ago and it also haunted me to where I still think of it occasionally!
  6. I think you mean Sully, but I'm with you. :) I felt bad for Tina facing a LSFYL while wearing that huge, shapeless garment, but she actually killed it. Another disappointing decision.

    The dialogue on this show is execrable, and I agree with @sempervivum's list of other complaints. I don't think I will be watching again. On the topic of The 4400, I thought those introductory credits were so striking, the music and the images. And Mahershalalhashbaz Ali's full name before he shortened it!
  8. Thank heavens Myrka was there to take up the butthole-talk banner after Reanna's departure. Jenna's mother is awful, and so is her BF. Dad is no prize either. I'm starting to understand why she acts the way she does.
  9. Not sure. He's pretty intense about the whole "marriage" thing. I can't warm up to Jake OR Haley, so I guess I'm team nobody.
  10. I do think Ines is putting on a show, at least to some extent. Why was everyone all up in Bronson's grill for calling her the c-word? She rips him to shreds every chance she gets. He wasn't wrong.

    Gotta add The 4400 to that list. 😉
  12. It is confusing when you're used to the American version, but yes, this is all standard for the Aussie MAFS. They spend the first several weeks introducing the couples in small groups (presumably to avoid overwhelming us?), then immediately going to their "weddings" (which are not legal, unlike the US edition). There are TONS more couples, obviously. The season goes on FOREVER (guess that part isn't so different!) The one they showed us previously on Lifetime was season 7, now they are showing season 6 *confused shrug*. The couples interact at the weekly dinners, after which they decide e
  13. On behalf of Father Ted and the unnamed fisherman, I must protest them being left out of the In Memoriam segment. We got to know them about as much as we did Cody.
  14. I spent almost all of the back half of the episode trying to figure out if I had missed some dialogue explaining how Cody was found. That's not a good sign. This episode hit the right emotional notes with Jenny and Cassie, but exposed further the weaknesses of the plotting. It kind of has a bit of that "Lost" feeling of making it up as they go along. I'll stick around for more Jerrie. :)
