    S08.E02: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

    I saw a lot of commentary about how Dany was jealous of that. I'd prefer to think that she noticed it and is using it to inform her future actions. She sees the loyalty--does she know that it was born out of shared loss and sacrifice? (And torture) Maybe Dany will see that lowering herself in some respects--and showing how she has been brought low throughout her life--will help her earn the trust of the North. So much has been made of Tyrion's former brilliance and fall from grace/her Grace. I wonder if his unseen talk with Bran will give him food/fuel for redemption. Talking to Bran (and listening) could prove the smartest thing anyone has done. Bran's knowledge and Tyrion's brainpower combined could yield solutions no one has thought of. It also reminds me that Tyrion was kind to Bran in the early days after his fall, right? Bran surely remembers that.

    S08.E01: Winterfell

    I was a little surprised that Sam was so broken up over the death of his father. I know a dad is a dad, but there was no love lost there. I don't know why I didn't anticipate the Bran-Jamie reunion. Yikes. And the Tyrion-Sansa reunion too!

    S07.E02: Discovery Weekend

    And honestly, just the sight of Ben and Kent participating! I am laughing just thinking about it.

    S07.E02: Discovery Weekend

    The team square-dancing absolutely slayed me. I laughed so hard I didn't hear the next two minutes of dialogue. I love Richard so hard. He is so clueless, but his observations are always spot on. "That's gonna stick." Love him.

    Leaving Neverland

    There was a moment in this movie where they showed a clip of Jackson--I think it was when he was defending himself in his statement from Neverland, wearing the red shirt--where his voice is a lot deeper and less wispy than in his regular public speech. It came off as natural (not put on). When it suited his purpose, he didn't need to sound high pitched and breathy. Honestly, thinking about how recently people have defended Polanski--it is freaking insane. I have been thinking about this a lot. Even having been horrified by this documentary, I find it easy to separate the music from Michael's crimes. But for some reason, movies by people like Woody Allen feel different for me. I guess because they feel so autobiographical and reflective of Woody Allen's twisted world view (thinking specifically about Manhattan, which completely creeps me out).

    Hoarders

    I didn't understand what they were saying about a speech impediment. I understood her just fine. I guess maybe her speech was slightly affected by her overbite? But barely! I was impressed with Russ's ability to get through to his dad, and to speak knowledgeably about codependence. (Not surprised he was a recovering addict.) Of course, I suspect that Andy had his reasons for cooperating with Russ and the clean-up. Truly not convinced he actually changed his thinking or behavior. I kept thinking, there must be a drug that could unlock the steel trap of OCD hoarding in these people's brains. I think this is an extreme form of anxiety, no? I thought Becky and Andy looked like they could be siblings.

    Leaving Neverland

    All of this is extremely important. I can imagine how difficult it must have been for them to let go of the "good" they experienced through Michael. They would have to admit that rather than being "chosen" and loved, they were used, they were victims. Also Oprah is the first one whom I heard, years ago, talk about seduction and how the experience of being molested isn't necessarily unpleasant in the moment. It is hard to accept as true but it makes all the sense in the world.

    Leaving Neverland

    THIS, a million times. What else would the estate have been referencing? So bizarre.

    Leaving Neverland

    A very creepy (and apt) typo.

    Leaving Neverland

    I get this, but as a mother, it is very hard to buy into this completely. All I can say is that at least these stories remind me of what to know to protect my kids. Under no circumstances should my child sleep over with an adult. If a powerful person takes an unusual interest in my kids, there is no innocent reason for it. Too good to be true is just that. There's no such thing as magic. Lots of people are giving Drake the side eye for his behavior with Millie Bobbie Brown and others. Interesting. I had the opposite reaction. James seems so fragile to me. I am actively worried about him. He met Priscilla when she was 14 and I believe he was a decade older She left the cult a while back.

    S44.E14: John Mulaney / Thomas Rhett

    I'd love it if one of the regular cast would play Michael Cohen. Ben Stiller is just not that great.

    Watching Sandra. Whoa.

    The Masked Singer

    I didn't know Joey had any hot dog restaurants -- that changes things in my mind. I kept thinking Rabbit could be Donny Wahlberg because of Wahlbergers. And also the head-cocking thing seems like a Donny movie. I could see this show trying to pull one over on Jenny McCarthy. Alien is definitely LaToya. Terrible voice but it has that thin Jackson quality.

    "The View": Week Of 1/14/2019

    You're right, I almost never tune in and usually just see clips. I have seen her be hostile before, but this was a few steps beyond. And yeah -- I said I'm inclined to sympathize, but I think if I watched every day I would abandon that fast. And because I identify with her loss, I have to say—at this stage in her life, I'm not sure she should be the cohost of a talk show. She isn't capable of having a productive conversation.

    "The View": Week Of 1/14/2019

    True story, I once got flipped off by Matt Lauer, who was bicycling with his son near Columbia Presbyterian hospital, because I may have cut him off while making a turn. (This was while he was still on the Today show.) I wanted to shout, TEAM ANN! I am inclined to be sympathetic toward Meghan because I remember vividly how angry I was when my father died, but she came across as unhinged in that Steve King conversation. It is not good television. To the question, "Is 42% of the country racist?" -- There's no way of knowing that, IMO. But people who think a wall is an effective means of stopping illegal immigration are definitely uninformed. I wish someone had said that.
