  1. I just read that a few days ago. I never knew either that she didn't write the books or at least when they first started. Here's my SVH story. I used to buy those books back in the 80s. I probably had 20 to 25 of them. I generally thought they were terrible but I kept buying them anyway. (Kind of like I did The Vampire Diaries although I finally wised up there) Well anyway, one day about I don't know like 15 or 20 years ago I decided to sell them in a yardsale. Sold the whole box for $5 to this old lady that was so happy to get them for her granddaughter. So you know I still feel good that they went to somebody that would love them but.... I kinda wish I had them back now. Not to read mind you, to sell on ebay! Also sold all my V.C. Andrews books except My Sweet Audrina, which I kind of regret. I did keep all my Christopher Pike and Lois Duncan ones though. And S.E. Hinton.
  2. Whoa Simon Cowell. I haven't seen him for years but he looks like a different person. He's reminding me of someone else, an actor I think, but I can't pin it down. Yeah I agree about Jane Fonda. Obviously she's had plastic surgery but she still looks like herself.
  3. I have some Forever Knight dvds. It is terrible! I can't get through it now. One of the free roku channels shows Land of the Lost but I forgot which one and I don't know if they still do. I watched it like a year ago. Yes, the special effects are horrible but I still enjoyed the show so it wasn't just one of those childhood memories where I thought the show was better than it was. I mean it was terrible, but the good kind of terrible ya know. I was thinking about the show Roc the other day. I'd like to see that one again to see if it really was as funny as I remember. Also Herman's Head which I remember as being quite good.

    S02.E06: Episode 6

    Yeah, I keep calling him Damien. I loved that so much. I heard one note and I was like, oh shit, Lunatic Fringe. Which I yelled at my husband. Every episode I say the same thing, I love how they're doing the music at the end of every episode, how they're starting it at the perfect spot to go into the credits. Kudos to the person in charge of it. (Music geek 😁)

    S02.E05: Episode 5

    This episode almost felt like a whole season, so much happened but all I can think about is that creep actually reaching over and unzipping Wendy's shirt. What in the hell gives someone the right to think they can do that? Yes, we got Ed, Charlie and Tex in this episode and this is what's bothering me. I am spitting mad right now.

    All that is true yet for some reason I love that movie anyway. Must be the Hugh Grant syndrome. 😄

    S02.E02: Episode 2

    I strongly relate it to The Americans too which I still think is one of the best pilots I've ever seen. I usually feel the same when a song is so strongly related to another show but I liked the use of Tusk here because for me it's one of those songs that brings me right to this time period.

    Yeah, I knew she wanted something from him because her face changed as soon as she saw he was FBI. I understand her not wanting to tell him the real reason for asking him to dinner. She doesn't know him like we do, she would have no reason to think this white guy from another city would care. What I thought was interesting is that he did think it was a date and he wanted to go. I've mostly forgotten last season but wasn't Holden being awkward with women a thing? I think he got the girlfriend last season because she was the straightforward one. Correct me if I'm not remembering this right.

    S02.E01: Episode 1

    No, I don't mind. My granddad was an architect and when I was little he worked from home. My grandparent's house had a basement and an attic room where he kept all his stuff and I spent a lot of my time in those two places. He died in 1972 and I adored him so I guess anything that reminds me of that time is comforting to me. I actually have a bit of claustrophobia too.

    S02.E02: Episode 2

    I loved when they were interviewing Berkowitz. The show just makes it so riveting, I doubt it's really like that. Great intense scene with interviewing the brother also and never really showing his face clearly. Loved that. Tusk. Another great end credits song which is a song that just totally sums up this time period for me. I loved it so much when it came out, I'd never really paid much attention the Fleetwood Mac before that. I was still a tween then.

    I love the basement. Back then they probably found it kind of depressing to be down there but as a child of the 70s looking at it just comforts me. I would happily work in a place like that. I probably should have refreshed myself before starting the second season because I have such a terrible memory but they did a good job throughout the episode with pacing it and explaining just enough so I was able to remember. Music great as usual. Loved the The Overlord by the Talking Heads on the end credits.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I know Chris Evans wanted out, I understand that. I just do think something is hinky about these two characters that have been through so much not really getting a good last moment together. My read on it is somewhere that someone was worried about it being "omg gay" or why wouldn't these guys have a moment? Clint and Wanda got a moment ffs. I can't think of any other reason why Steve and Bucky didn't get one.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    What I meant is that the numbers for these movies show that it doesn't hurt them (their bottom line which is always about the money) that there are people that read Steve and Bucky as gay. What I meant by my comment is that they shouldn't be making decisions about keeping characters apart because there are people that ship the characters. I think Hollywood execs are idiots too. And backward. I didn't mean my comment to come across any other way than I don't agree with any of Hollywood execs on any stupid decisions they make about race, sexual identity, etc and how they can't make money. I remember reading about that guy that used to have a say in MCU stuff saying things like he didn't want to make a Black Widow movie cause it wouldn't sell toys, like eww girls. It also took forever to make a Black Panther movie and look how well it did. I'm saying they need to understand that showing stuff beyond the straight white male usual won't hurt them, I think it can help. I'm having a hard time explaining myself I hope you can understand me. Sorry if it came off as another way.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I think there's something going on with the corporate level too. First of all they shouldn't care if people imagine a romantic relationship with Steve and Bucky. It hurts no one and it doesn't hurt their bottom line, in fact it probably helps it. Second, they need to realize that there are a lot of us out here that identified with the friendship for the ages that don't ship them romantically. We all got cheated. How hard would it have been to put a meaningful moment and conversation between two people that did have a friendship that was central to three movies. You know, when everybody else got a moment. Leave out the dumb Hulk selfie part and Boom. Time for that. I don't know why I just can't care about Wanda and Vision. I think they made a mistake killing her brother and whatever relationships she had with Clint and Steve were just not enough for me to care about her as a character. Hopefully the show will fix that. I'm just a person that romance alone doesn't do much for me, I need those family and friend relationships. I do agree with you that Elizabeth Olsen is a very good actor.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Love all your points except the Wanda one but that's just because Wanda and Vision bore the crap out of me. I'm hoping that will change with their show which I will watch despite not caring about them. Hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised. I LOVE that Jarvis showed up in this movie even if it was only for a minute. I did think Tony might have had a bit more of a reaction to him though. I don't guess they've ever said when he passed but I'm assuming Tony did have a close relationship with him since he modeled his AI after him.
