    S10.E06: Back to School

    I was wondering about that myself. They didn't eat with us, but we didn't all eat at the same time, either, so all the teachers certainly weren't eating lunch together. Back when I was in middle school (oh so many moons ago) our teachers "monitored" the lunch room on rotation. They didn't eat with us, more kind of walked around making sure everything was okay. I'm assuming then that the others were off somewhere eating and would "monitor" the second lunch break hooligans. lol

    That's interesting. Guess it's hard maintaining that level of obnoxious cheer. For the sake of those around her I'm glad to hear she's not like that all the time though. lol
  3. I actually like that Sabrina wasn't the big hero in the end. She hasn't earned it yet and it would feel extremely contrived if she managed to single handedly save the day when a far more advanced wizard and a millenniums old demon were there. I was afraid they were going to have everyone sitting around with their thumbs up their arses while the Great and Powerful Sabrina saved them all.

    Not to mention one of them was up on a top shelf above most average people's head height. Wouldn't want to be taking my hot soup out of that microwave. :S

    Or because it was socially acceptable. I don't necessarily think Ms. Smith was an actual racist or just "of her time", and that song almost had to be a satire it was so OTT racist, however, I can also see how the Yankees would make the decision not to play her version of the song anymore because not everyone is going to do the research to understand what the song was or why she sang it and are just going to see that the person they chose to highlight every game sang horribly racist songs. I will miss her version as it has been a part of the game as long as I've been a fan, but I get the decision and am fine with it. They've used it for years, maybe it's time for a change.

    What makes you dump a book?

    Haha, if you're going to be that specific at least get it right. I've never read a book set in my home town but I do think it would be hard because I would be thinking, you can't walk from there to there in 20 minutes, or that bookstore is on the other side of town, etc. So unless it was a local doing the writing I think I would find it really distracting. Lucky for me no one wants to write about my hometown.

    Until they explained that they were all pics of the principal I assumed that each kid did a drawing of each of the different teachers at the school. I would never have guessed that it was all supposed to be the same person. I would have lost big on that bet. haha

    I didn't care for either room but I always enjoy an episode that ends with both sides happy with what they got. I'm not here for the drama. I would prefer this to be a feel good kind of show. People having fun doing some home redecorating and everybody all happy and huggy at the end. I wish they hadn't brought Paige back when they rebooted. She is hands down the worst part of the show for me. If I knew her IRL I'd run every time I saw her coming because she is just exhausting. I like that each room had something the kids did, and while some things might get changed, the beanbag chairs that no adult is going to sit in, or the impossible to keep clean glass table tops, I guarantee those portraits and that push pin wall art will stay. I missed the Wayfair bit too and couldn't figure out what in each room would have been from there, mainly because I forgot all about the Wayfair product placement since I didn't see that segment. Guess I could pretty much do without that bit. haha

    Miley went through a very public "awkward" stage where she did, as you say, try to be an adult by being overly sexy, because, let's face it, that's what the media, especially the music industry, tells us women are. Unfortunately for her she had to do it in front of the world and she made some mistakes, but I do think she's come out of it alright. I can't imagine being young and having everything I do scrutinized by millions of people who don't know me. That does things to a person. For the kids who don't have a strong support system it can destroy them.

    Maybe they are heartbroken that the truth is out and her legacy tarnished. But those songs....OMG there is no way to justify those lyrics and no amount of money would have been able to get me to sing something like that.

    I don't think her parents "pushed" her into showbiz, I do believe it is what she wanted and they decided "sure, let's give that a shot". It's when they saw how much money she could make that things got ugly. I do feel that her parents got caught up in the fame and fortune and at some point stopped thinking of themselves as people who were meant to keep her safe and healthy and saw her as a one way ticket to "the good life". That is basically the story for most of these kids who don't make it. There are a few whose parents protect and support them and they end up all right in the end, but sadly most of them end up like Miss Spears, especially if she was already predisposed to mental illness.
  13. It makes me ragey because I'm currently watching one about a little white girl who went missing and the town, the cops, everyone was moving heaven and earth to find who took her (eventually killed her). I feel like these kids didn't get that and it makes me sad.

    Not harmful, just an odd way to say what I think she means, which is that Heath loved her for her, not because she was famous, but it was very awkwardly phrased to sound like Matilda shouldn't settle for someone who doesn't think she's pretty and dresses nice. I think the thought, don't settle for someone who doesn't love you completely is nice, it's just badly worded in that particular quote.
  15. I hated Casey. UGH! She was the worst part of that movie. And that is quite an accomplishment. That movie was not well thought out. Athena reminded me of Vicky from Small Wonder so I think she started out in the plus column with me.
  16. Athena was really the only thing I liked about that horrible movie. lol
  17. Yeah, I loved that scene until the victim blaming. I mean, really, who was Lilith going to talk to when Satan first showed up? Her BFF? She didn't have one. There was only one other person in existence and she couldn't go back to where he was. She didn't understand lies and deception because those were things Satan brought to the world. It's easy for Sabrina with her strong support system, friends, family, people who raised her and taught her and told her she was worth more. Who did Lilith have? What I love most is that I do think Sabrina is slowly becoming that support system for Lilith. She's showing Lilith there could be another way. At least I hope that's where they end up going.

    Season 15: Speculation and Spoilers

    That looks like three pictures of the same guy and then some dude in a light blue button up. Kind of a which one of these is not like the others test. Also, I hope they look better on the show because I'm not impressed if that's what she ends up with.

    Hey, at least they have a good work study program. So do Lori and her idiot husband actually believe they didn't cheat or are they saying that hoping we'll all believe them and forget EVERYTHING that points to them cheating?

    Lifetime Original Movies

    I think this was a Lifetime movie, don't remember the name of it, but the main characters BFF, who was in the way of stalker guys stalking, goes out for a jog and she's in the middle of the fucking road, not down the center line, but like where the cars go. She even fucking stopped at the stop sign like she was in a freaking car. And then she's all WTF when some car is driving slowly behind her. Sure he ended up killing her (I can't say I blame him) but what was he supposed to do? You were in the middle of the lane he had to drive down! I've never been happier about a friend of the protagonists death in my life.

    Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    I've always found it fascinating how one person will have their "unpopular opinion" and then suddenly it's the most popular opinion in the world. Everyone jumps on the bandwagon. Then, after a few days/pages/whathaveyou, suddenly it's the stupidest opinion in the world and all the sheep have moved onto new opinion. I'm as guilty of it as the rest of us. It's a fascinating quirk of humanity, part of our desire to fit in. Trouble is, eventually it will turn ugly because there are also people out there who have nothing better to do than try to piss people off. I have abandoned many a fandom because of the gang mentality I see on so many of them. And that's where it gets frustrating, because there are also some very smart, funny, clever folks trying to have fun, thoughtful conversations going on. you just have to wade through a lot of shit to get to them, and you have to get there fast before it devolves into "my favorite character is better than your favorite character who is horrible and evil and stupid while mine is heroic and amazing and perfect".

    Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    I still like Sabrina. It's just a fun show to watch! It's never too serious. I loved Sabrina. I was 24 when it started (just looked it up out of curiosity). Of course I most recently loved Liv and Maddie on Disney Channel, still watch Andy Mack and have seen 2 of the Descendants movies. I like kid/pre-teen shows. Oddly, didn't like them when I was one. Go figure.

    Stannis was an evil SOB but oh so pretty...and that voice. I'd pretty much do terrible, terrible things for him if he just whispered them in my ear. Tywin Lannister was pretty stunning too. Say what you want about GoT but whoever cast that show has quite the eye for elder gents. Yummmm The yungen's aren't too bad either, but the older men on that show get my pulse racing.

    I'd be quite content if Davos and Jorah stared in a spin off, two men who have lost everything wonder the wastelands and fight for survival. The pretty would be overwhelming. (my possibly OP: I apparently have a thing for 57 year old British dudes. lol Then again, maybe not that unpopular.)
