  1. I finally saw this at home today and I was underwhelmed.  Marta was on the screen too much and it went on too long.  I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had seen in the theater, but I still think I would have been lukewarm about it.   And seeing Toni Colette in HD was rough.

    If Chrissy lives as long as Darlene Cates did, she's got 30 years left. Someone her age and her size, who's healthy enough to film a TV series, is extremely unlikely to die within a few years.

    I think any kind of early death for Kate, even if she dies of something completely unrelated to her weight (like dying while saving someone from a fire), would rub a lot of fans the wrong way. I think the writers want to avoid the whole "fat people have short, tragic lives" trope.

    I know Darlene Cates died at 69.  I only referred to her because she was an obese actress like Chrissy.

  3. I never liked Maggie, have always thought she was annoying.  However, I do hope that she and the Boston doctor can make things work and she moves to Boston.  She needs to get away from that hell hole of a hospital and her "sisters."  She could always visit them occasionally.

  4. The way Michael puts his hands to his head when being questioned really does make me think that he's got some serious issues.  I'm no psychiatrist so I don't know what they are, but it does seem like he needs some help, but definitely not a wife right now.

    Also, I haven't heard anything more about Ocho Rios.

    This sounds really terrible, but there is a part of me that thinks they aren't showing her in episodes in the far off future because her obesity could mean an early death for the actual actress (think John Candy).  

    I also think of Darlene Cates, who played the obese mom in What's Eating Gilbert Grape?

    Some people just don't drive. I don't personally wonder. People feel less and inclined to drive these days with Uber and stuff like that. I see it at work all the time.

    Yes, I know there's Uber, etc., but there will be occasions where one will travel out of the city.  You know, take a drive somewhere?  So in that situation, I wouldn't want to be the only one who could drive and I wouldn't date a guy who wouldn't/couldn't drive, (the exception being if he had some kind of illness or disability).

    I grew up in Philly and I learned to drive, but I don’t think it’s weird when people don’t drive (I think because of all my time in NYC, and in general I’m not into cars). Maybe he’s trying to save money by not owning a car.

    Katie is really horrible.

    Yes but guys usually don't rely on the woman to drive them around.  At least the ones I've known.

    Also, I suggested that people in NYC might see things differently.  We ain't NYC, lol!

    Did he grow up in a city? My grandmother was a lifelong New Yorker and never learned to drive.

    He said he grew up in DC.  So did I, but I still learned to drive.  It isn't quite like NYC where one assumes that most people don't drive.

    The manner in which Cain's character has been built, you can't know or even attempt to read into what he said to Ezra. First off I think it's all bullshit and he just said it as an "admittance" to keep Ezra from turning him in. If there is something, I'll bet it is much more serious that just some instruments that weren't cleaned properly. I wouldn't trust/believe anything that comes out of his mouth.

    Yes, I believe he was just playing big, dumb Ezra.
