  1. Ah, that's a real precious little film of them as grandparents. Just watched this movie tonight and I was okay with the structure of the film but I did think the actors were miscast. The leads were just too old for the roles. I would've preferred lesser known actors who fit the characters better in terms of age and ability to pull off a reasonable impression. For one thing, although Kidman captured Lucille Ball's seriousness behind the scenes, she was not as good pulling off the comedic bits. As she kept stating, Lucy was a physical comedic actress and that included her face, which she wo
  2. Ruby reminded me of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. I wanted all four bakers to go through. I'm not the kind of person that likes seeing the judges not send someone home in ANY competition show, but this time, I really felt it was justified. All season, I expected Chigs to go because he has little experience and seems to have learned everything on the fly via book learning. This last technical proved that. That's why I was shocked that he's in the final and not Jurgen. I honestly felt Jergen deserved to stay over Chigs -- the newbie baker. I've always felt Giuseppe would win the se
  3. After Meg left -- a designer I did not love -- I turned off the show. What is it about "street wear" that one must have a model who looks exactly like the designer to express themselves? Are they saying that a person who is not of their race and/or ethnicity cannot wear their street wear clothes? What about their ball gown clothes? Or, their cocktail clothes? The woman who left should not have, but I don't blame her. If she was another race, would she have been so pressured to give up her model after a full day of work? I just want a show about designers, not about pacifying a bunch of males
  4. I agree with this. I just saw the movie this afternoon in a theater that had a pretty good "crowd" considering the pandemic. I never saw the play, never heard the music before, and really didn't know the story. So, leaving so many loose ends was unsatisfying. That being said, I did enjoy the movie. I wouldn't have cared about not knowing what happened to all the other characters if I didn't. Having seen and heard Hamilton a couple of times, the music was very Lin Manuel Miranda. There were a couple of homages to old Hollywood that I liked, e.g., the choreography in the pool that remi
  5. I have no idea how much money it takes to protect Harry and his growing family. But, certainly Prince Charles has more than enough cash to pay for or help pay for their security without him financially feeling it or burdening the taxpayer. Whether six or 36, Harry is still a member of the royal family, didn't choose to be, and is a target as such. The same for Archie and the coming baby. The only one who chose to be a part of it is Meghan, but that doesn't mean she deserves to be unprotected. Now that they've secured some employment, it may not be as much of an issue -- I don't know -- but it
  6. Being "hung up on protection" isn't a small issue. He is a mixed raced prince -- the first ever -- who would have to contend with racist in the U.K. Do you think this is nothing?
  7. I think she was "hung up" on the fact that as a non-prince and such, that he would not get the protection. That they didn't want to protect a mixed race child. It wasn't about the title, it was about the protection.
  8. Good to know. Yes, both Greg Wise and Carla Gugino are both beautiful in the Buccaneers and their love is heartbreaking. Based on the Edith Wharton unfinished novel. Highly recommend. On another topic, the idea that Simon and Daphne entered marriage without her knowing that he didn't want to have children is totally on him, being the most experienced and the person with the issue that's central to this discussion. She, understandably, thought he couldn't have them. I'm not shocked she felt blindsided when she found out.
  9. Any child born in a marriage is considered legally legitimate. Now, whether the child looks like the father -- whether suspected by the father or by anyone else is another issue. But, it's not a legal one.
  10. Marina and George ruined Marina's life. Marina was just spreading the ruin when she arrived in London and proceeded to agree to run away with Colin without telling him she was pregnant.
  11. Regarding the all white Bridgertons and Featheringtons, I am guessing they are trying to keep within the bounds of making the families believable in terms of genetics/biology -- for instance, consider the all black Bassett family -- but that doesn't mean there aren't mixed race members, like Marina and, if Daphne should get pregnant, Daphne and Simon's children. At least, that's what I'm thinking. Regarding Simon hanging around to see if Daphne is pregnant, he wouldn't want to abandon her if she indeed were pregnant. He doesn't want to be a father -- allegedly -- but he doesn't want to le
  12. A younger Polly Walker was in the movie Enchanted April which was wonderfully romantic and magical and almost fairytale-ish. Love that movie and bought it on DVD when it came out. If you have a chance, see it. And here she is on the promotional trailer.
  13. Hopefully, how Penelope ended up doing all of this will be explored in a future episode, with flashbacks. In fact, I would bet on it unless the writers are incompetent.
