  1. I guess the show runner/writers really wanted to go far with it in the last season. Alex, Charlie, Tony, Caleb, Winston, the Dean, Monty and maybe Zach were all gay? Didn't Ani and Jessica share a kiss as well? Interesting. Wasn't Alex life-and-death-in-love with Jessica for the first three seasons? I was surprised by him. That principal is an unprofessional hack bureaucrat who should have been fired in Season 1. His incompetence and ineptitude were constant. A lockdown that extreme would have never happened. Also the procedure is for kids to stay in a room with a teacher/adult or find the nearest room with one if they are in the hallway. They would never spend a lock down by themselves with no adult anywhere to be found. I was also shocked that there were so many empty rooms with no kids or teachers on a typical school day (for the characters to be alone in). You would never see that in a typical public high school. Also, there would be countless teacher chaperones on the camping trip with the students. Parent chaperones would not be used, especially parents only with no teachers. Just dumb. There was nothing in the first three seasons to indicate that Clay was an Ivy League caliber student and ESPECIALLY that Justin was the caliber of student who would even be considered for a school like Occidental. Did I miss something? Whatever happened to Sherri and Skye? Wouldn't they have been Seniors with everyone else?
  2. Great to see Brian Dennehy in what turned out to be his last role (it was filmed in February and he passed in April...RIP). Cool to see the return of Brad Garrett as well. This show has outstanding casting, both the regular actors and the guests! While Josephina danced with Rico, she didn't seem too interested in the guy and she warned him not to mess with Mateo..."I have his back". I love her red hair, really enhancing an already beautiful girl. I have mixed feelings about Nathan Lane in this role. He is a great actor and he really captures the human side of the character and his justified disgust with the Nazis. He just isn't believable as a tough cop. When he talks about fighting back or going after someone physically, it just doesn't fit. By the way, I just saw Nathan Lane's appearance on a 35-year old episode of Miami Vice. He played a nightclub stand up comic who was killed 20 minutes into the episode after attempting to rape a cocktail waitress. Frankie Valli and James Remar also guested in the show. Pretty interesting.
  3. Ray is a lousy cop. It would be a miracle if Jackie lives another 18 months. Junior's wife/gf should dump his junkie ass because she can do a lot better. Renee has atrocious taste in men. I feel sorry for her little boy. Great show!!!
  4. Tatiana Maslany on Orphan Black was the greatest actor I have ever seen on a TV show. Natalie Dormer is the closest thing to that in regards to playing multiple characters...actually 4 (Magda, Elsa, Alex and Rio). I think Tatiana played 7 or 8 in OB. I think Natalie is excellent here on this show (I never saw Game of Thrones so this is the first I have seen her). I remember Amy Madigan, who plays Molly's mother, in the excellent film Streets of Fire in the early 80's. She has been married to actor Ed Harris for decades.
  5. Of all the characters on this show, Rhodes Senior is the most rotten of them all. He is a true bastard and his death would make the world a better place. He is a ruthless scumbag who treated his wife and son like garbage. I would think Chuck privately, deep in his heart would want his Dad to kick the bucket. He would be free from the abuse and likely in for a good inheritance. While last season seemed to be a big showcase of the Taylor character, this season is going nuts on Wendy. Interesting how I like the character less as she gets shoved down our throats.
  6. This show seems like a better fit on a smaller streaming network than a monster conglomerate like ABC. I hope it finds a new and better home.

    Vida

    Yes, exactly. Also, think of this. How long was the time period from when Emma was sent away to when Victor the father was arrested/deported? If that period was relatively short, wouldn't Vida have sent for Emma to return to her family, since he was gone? I would say if it were a few years or less, Emma would have returned home, maybe by the time she was in her late teens. I'm not a fan of Lyn and Johnny ending up together. Too much disfunction for it to last long term. Two more seasons would have been perfect for this show. The seasons are very short anyway, so it's not like we are talking about another 30 episodes or more.
  8. Both actors who play Noa and Daniel are the same age, born in 1984, making them 36 in 2020. Interestingly, the actress who plays Vanessa was born in 1992, making her 28 and eight years younger. While Lewis looks younger on the surface, if you look closely you can tell that he is probably early 50's.

    Vida

    Rudy is an empty suit and his mother is horrible. I don't like any of the guys Lyn has been with, including Johnny. Maybe that one Polish guy she bumped into awhile back would be good for her. I can't imagine Lyn as a born again Christian. Will she last a month? I think it's pretty clear that Emma didn't like her mother, but she absolutely hates her father. I wonder what really happened? So it seems that Lyn and Emma are very close in age, probably less than two years. I think Emma is right around 30 so Lyn must be 28.5??
  10. Yes, she is extremely beautiful and a wonderful actress! Jessica was also great in Season 1 of The Purge (TV series). Why didn't the Doctor just call the police and tell them that Elsa killed the guy in self defense after she was attacked? That would have solved everything. I guess he really wasn't thinking straight. It's interesting how Townsend was such a ruthless, aggressive tyrant in the first episode who now comes across as a weak, wimpy milquetoast who is easily controlled. I love Natalie Dormer's look as Rio, with her brown eyes (contacts) and dark red hair. Reminds me of how Kristen Stewart looked so much better with brown eyes in the Twilight movies.
  11. This has been a really weird season. About a week before it started, I rewatched the last half of Season 4, which I think was really good. There is such a big difference between that and how this season has started. What happened? It seems like a different show. It reminded me of when Ray Donovan moved to New York and the show was never the same. It's kind of sad. Bryan Connerty is missed. I actually liked the START of the scene when Chuck went full Kingsfield/John Houseman on the class and then for the kiddies to start whining and bellyaching. It was then immediately ruined by what's her name in the back "fixing everything". Ughhhhh. It's bad enough that geezer scumbag Rhoades Sr. has an infant child. Now Wags too? Time to vomit. I just never imagined Wags ever parenting a child, which makes this storyline horrendous. Why is the painter guy there? Waste of a character. It would be more interesting for Wendy to juggle affairs with Axe and Lauren. Imagine that.
  12. I wonder who they will get to play Noa's father? I think Hugh Laurie would be an interesting choice!! I think Daniel's parents are extremely selfish and aren't letting their kids live their own lives. Noa is not to blame for their problems, their selfishness is. It looks like Vanessa and Mateo will end up as a couple very soon. That would solve everything. All four of them should be happy with that.
  13. Reilly was a rotten human being who deserved to die. What he did to Josefina was disgusting and hard to watch. He has been a racist scumbag since the start. The police department failed miserably in doing nothing about the guy and letting him carry on with his garbage. They should have fired the guy years earlier, but they seemed to turn a blind eye. They are the ones who deserve blame for what happened. The pachucos did the city a favor by eliminating that scumbag. This show has tremendous casting. Seeing Brad Garrett show up in that role was a true treat! Interesting that both Mateo and Lewis were both told to kill someone and only Mateo did it. Didn't Lewis comment in an earlier episode that he had never used his gun before while on the job?

    Jesse Borrego is always excellent. Great to see him as Victor. This show is now better than it has ever been, which is saying a lot because it's always been good. I wish it would go on and on, but I guess there are only 4-5 episodes left?? I feel sorry for Emma. She is really messed up on the inside. Vida really crucified her by sending her off for being lesbian, then for Emma to discover the hypocrisy of Vida's lesbianism late in her life. Emma seems like someone who is emotionally damaged and completely unable to experience a loving relationship. Now Lyn is horrifically wounded by her mother for banishing her father from her life. Eddy tore up a picture of her and Vida. We are really now seeing how the actions of Vida have destroyed the ones she supposedly cared about.
  15. Lexi is the one character who comes closest to fitting this description. Though she is very attractive, but has absolutely no idea and sees herself as awkward and shy. When is this show coming back for Season 2? I was hoping for this summer. I just wonder how much of S2 they completed filming before the industry shut down for Covid19. It could be a very long time before this and other shows we expect to see in 2020 and 2021 come back.
