    Windy City Rehab

    Good article! Seems like Alison is not only incompetent, but also an asshole. And HGTV lies about their programs.......what a shock (not).

    The Good Fight

    I mainly enjoyed it as a salute to "Schoolhouse Rock". It seems unbelievable to me that a strong liberal-leaning woman like Diane would be married to Kurt. He was a big supporter of Sarah Palin when they first met and now apparently embraces Trump, and he cheated on her & lied about it. Keep him as a fuck buddy if you can't do without it, but marriage? Their basic values are too different.

    I couldn't understand him either, but thought it was just because I was playing an iPad game while this was on. Glad to know it wasn't just me!

    S02.E03: The Punishment Room

    Exactly! The whole "9th St. Women" scene was going on - Lee Krasner, Elaine DeKooning, and others. Doesn't Rose read the art section of the Times or visit any galleries? Or is she just waiting for Abe to hand her everything on a silver platter, as he did with access to classes. She doesn't know any women artists because she doesn't know any artists, period.

    I totally agree with every point you made. Plus, it somehow escaped her that the defendant didn't call the tow truck, he called the police who then called for a tow. When I've been in this situation either the police or someone from the city (not NYC) parking authority has to come and evaluate the scene before any cars get moved. So plaintiff should have hashed it out with the cops, but probably just wanted to stick it to her neighbors because it's her street and she'll park where she likes.

    I think she meant the Lifeline Assistance free/low cost phones for qualified needy people, like those on Medicaid or Section 8. The program was actually begun under Reagan. I too bailed on the family phone feud, and actually enjoyed cleaning moldy condiments out of my fridge more than listening to MM play therapist. Can't we have a moratorium on phone cases?

    S01.E03: Because You Left

    The uncomfortable part starts with the "foundation garments" one had to wear underneath those clothes. Rubber girdles (including long-line panty girdles to wear under slacks) were horrible, and for many years a woman who went without one was considered just one step above a hooker. The bras were pretty armor-plated too.

    S01.E01: Pilot

    Not in the 1950's. It's estimated that the apartment would have cost around $460,000 to buy then. Midge's family is well-off, but that would be out of their range; so we'll have to chalk it up to the old "willing suspension of disbelief".

    But you missed the indignant defendant who thinks the judge should take into account her dog's temperament, reasoning, and feelings when deciding a bite case. Plus her dog never gets out. Plus plaintiff kicked her dog trying to stop the attack while she and fat biker-type guy just stood there. Like JM said, it's everybody else's fault but hers. SMH

    Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours To Hell And Back

    Yeah, if Steve the Putz just wanted to have a boy's club why did he hire those women in the 1st place. And why are those women staying? Former GM Cat has been demoted twice; why on earth is she putting up with that bull.

    Condolences on the loss of beautiful Frankie. The picture made me cry too, and hug my cat Vivian extra close.

    The People's Court

    I SO agree with this - had to briefly change the channel because nothing in plaintiff's tale of woe made me feel the least bit sorry for him. I reserve my sympathy for those who are truly deserving.

    The plaintiff's adoring girlfriend should have spent less on her chest and done something with her hair and face. It's not nice to say, but I found her very unattractive. In fact, I imagine the plaintiff in drag would make a prettier woman. And yes, I am going straight to hell!

    Windy City Rehab

    Just who is the target audience for this show? AV is spending $600k to over $1million on these "rehabs"; do people with that kind of money to invest in flipping really watch HGTV for ideas? She doesn't have any new or interesting ideas, and although she does have experience I'm not impressed with her expertise. I would be more inclined to watch if it were condensed into 30 minutes.

    The People's Court

    I thought she looked like a bad Liza Minnelli impersonator. When she went on and on about being totally responsible for a 26 year old ( I didn't hear the part about that person being her daughter, thought she just rented a room to a college student) it raised a red flag. She probably is the landlady from hell who snoops through rooms whenever she wants because "it's MY house".

    Plaintiff has been reading too many magazines; if she has more followers than her immediate circle of friends, I'd be really surprised. She and the so-called PR professional are jokes. Last plaintiff: it's great to see Zippy the Pinhead is alive and well! So many litigants without mirrors today......
  17. I thought the final New Rule was just more of Bill's railing at anyone he thinks is trying to constrain him; sort of the millionth version of "I was cancelled by Berkeley". What possible difference could it make to him if people read comics, at least they're not watching FoxNews. It sounded like "you kids get off my lawn". I'm old, I understand that attitude; but why waste tv time on it? Skipped AC because I value my mental health.

    Too bad JM can't mandate therapy for some of these litigants; they really need that more than a monetary judgement. Therapy and a large dose of common sense.

    That plaintiff is WAY beyond mere bitch!! I totally understand the architect not pursuing his remaining fee, because who needs that kind of crazy nastiness in their life. His letter to her suggesting they discontinue working together was very gracious, much nicer than I would have been to her.
  20. That's why the perfect audience response to Coulter would be silent indifference and refusal to take the bait. Don't feed the troll.

    House Flipping Shows

    She used to be on DIY's Kitchen Crashers, a much more practical and useful show than her current Windy City Million Dollar Rehab.

    House Flipping Shows

    Just watched the 2nd episode of Windy City Rehab and I'm just not understanding who the target market is for this show, unless it's simply those of us thoroughly addicted to house porn. The kind of people with $1 million plus to invest are probably not sitting around checking HGTV for rehab tips, even if Alison Victoria had any to offer. At least she didn't ruin the outside of this building like she did with the 1st one.

    Was this case a topic on Judge Judy today also? I watched it on Judge Millian's show.

    House Flipping Shows

    Yes, this is supposed to be a brand new series. I totally agree with you, the exterior of that house looked just as bad after her reno as the before. Most of the interior was pretty boring too, except for the really nice outdoor space; thank goodness she got rid of that ridiculous fireplace. However, the place did sell for over $1.3 million, so what do I know? At least there are no entitled, delusional homeowners/buyers to deal with, giving this show a leg up on much of HGTV's programming.

    Love It Or List It

    I have a sneaking suspicion that most of these people aren't as sloppy as they appear, and that the producers are responsible for the incredible messes we see. I hate that part of the show; it's totally unnecessary. We are not as stupid as HGTV seems to think!
