  1. Even thought it has been cancelled, I say watch. If you enjoyed the other episodes, you will probably enjoy the last four. Plus, with the pandemic, it could be a while before new episodes of anything are filmed, so don't pass up the opportunity to watch something you haven't seen before.
  2. I think this show had promise, but, for me, Pauley ruins it. I find myself watching her and wondering how she can stand having her greasy bangs hanging into her eyes. Her acting doesn't seem natural, it seems obvious that she is acting. It is like you can see her thinking "okay, now I make a disgusted face, then after the next line I need to look relieved." The rest of the cast is great, even the kid, and the stories seemed realistic enough, the lines were funny, and the characters were the same ones you see on most other shows.
  3. The adult actors are pretty solid, and there are enough different characters and scenarios to have some decent plotlines, but the writing is horrible - not so much the jokes but the premises. I have not seen the latest episode (showshow important this show is to me, huh?) but the week before, with Andi's mom visiting was stupid, in my opinion. They never explained what Adam had against Andi's mom other than she stresses Andi out, but that was supposedly solved after their night of bar-hopping. Andi is so happy that they now have this open relationship but she can't tell her mother that talking about sex lives is too much information, instead Mom has to leave. Adam keeps complaining about having Andi's mom around, while we see her do nothing offensive, and no one points out that Adam's mom, who has been painted as this bossy shrew that everyone so afraid of, is over their house all the time. Andi is supposed to put up with all of his mom's crap, but Adam can't be around Andi's mom for more than a few minutes without telling her to her face how much he doesn't want her there.
  4. I am not sorry to see it go. The show had some promise in the very beginning. Not that it was great in the first season, but most shows start out a bit rough and get better. This one just kept getting worse. It began as a show about a guy who has to take over someone of the child raising because his wife went back to work (outdated premise, but workable). It ended up a poor remake of I love Lucy, except Ricky (Adam) was the one who came up with all the crazy schemes. All the gender stereotypes came straight out of the 1950's.
  5. I realize this episode was probably filmed months ago, but I found it oddly timely with people dealing with sheltering in place. I wonder if, nine months from now, there will be a rush of babies named Lysol.
  6. And don't forget - Guy can't throw out the bad chicken salad because that is wife's job. His job is to takeout the trash.
  7. Much better episode than last week, in my opinion. Swoosie Kurtz needs to spend less time at the plastic surgeon's office (also my opinion).
  8. Normally I like this show, and I don't expect sitcoms to be true to life, but the menopause part of this one was so removed from reality. Menopause isn't something that happens instantly after you doctor tells you "have it." Tina goes to the doctor because she has been feeling different, doctor says it is menopause and suddenly her emotions are all over the place and she has so many hot flashes that she needs the house to be cold enough to store meat in. It was so distracting that I didn't enjoy the rest of the episode. And I bet next week she won't have menopause symptoms anymore.
  9. I think Andi said she took two pills, so they will be fine (/sarcasm). So her headaches were caused by drinking too much coffee? Wasn't she still drinking coffee after she stopped taking the pill? Then why did her headaches go away? And how was her doctor able to tell her that it was the coffee when the doctor wasn't able to tell her than before? What new info did the doctor get to make this diagnosis? This is one of my "fluff" shows. I don't expect it to be very intelligently written, but this episode was just plain stupid.
  10. I was hoping Conrad would take a job at St. John's and (magically) get all his Chastain friends to come work there. I don't like the Red Rock storyline and hope they are no longer in charge by the end of the season. I get The Resident and New Amsterdam mixed up all the time. I think it is supposed to be okay because Conrad was asked to look into it by Dax/Coach before he ended up in the hospital. I don't know if that is how it works in real life, but one the show, Dax was Conrad's patient.
  11. Anyone taking bets on which episode will have the part when Bell finds out that the supplements have some sort of horrible side effect?
  12. In the first two scenes with the pig, the pig was dark on top - lots of "freckles." Then the pig ran away and the one they were chasing was much pinker and less freckled. I expected the ending to be the pig's owner asking Rio where she got the pig from because her pig had returned home the night before. This isn't my favorite show, but I find it charming enough to keep recording it.
  13. How do you bake a cake and have the center come out bake and the edges underdone?
  14. I felt like Jason was running out of his cutsie sayings and was making stuff up on the fly. Some of what he said made no sense.
  15. I have a feeling that Vicki Lawrence didn't know that Jamie Farr was going to come out dressed as her.
  16. "Young Leonard" would be a horribly depressing show.
  17. I'd like to try a macaron ice cream sandwich. That is all I really have to say about that one. Didn't understand Spare and didn't care enough to bother trying to understand it. Swoverals, if they catch on, are going to be made by someone else who will charge a lot less for them. I don't understand how it costs him $30 to make a pair. You can buy a sweatshirt and a pair of sweatpants at Walmart for about 5 bucks each. But I don't see them catching on. When the model put his hands in the pockets, it was not flattering. I am a little jealous of the Somnifix guy because he, apparently, has never had blocked up sinuses. In the beginning, he list various thing that mouth breathing causes, one of which was sinus congestion. But he got that backwards - sinus congestion causes mouth breathing. If my sinuses are congested, taping my mouth shut might kill me. Plus, I can snore with my mouth closed - though only on the inhale (I was awake when I tried this, but I don't think that being asleep would change anything).
  18. Maybe I missed something, but how to you set the door lock thingie after you leave the house? Everytime they made it pop up, they had to step on it from inside the house.
  19. I am pretty sure that Buddy isn't the only baker in America that knows how to make flowers from buttercream. He used a star tip to make the grass. They make grass tips. that make the frosting come out as little tubes. A star tip makes no sense. The only reason Buddy's cakes looked as good as they did is because of his assistant. From what I saw, all Buddy did was the airbrushing that wasn't all that good and the landscaping with grass that didn't look like grass and flowers that made no sense. Note: This is not a slap on Geoff, because I thought Duff's cakes were better looking and Geoff is awesome. I cannot think of a baker on TV who would be worse to watch than Buddy.
  20. The parents aren't very realistic either - they are all single parents who rarely seem to work yet they all seem to have enough money. The only time I remember that one of them mentioned anything about money being tight was the episode where Angie was delivering food for extra income. I suppose it is possible that all the exes are paying great child support, but seems unlikely. However, I find the writing clever and the acting good. I like this show. I can be a stickler for realism, but when everything is unrealistic, like it is in this show, I just go along with it.
  21. Doggie seat belt - I wonder what vets think about their product. It doesn't seem like a good way to carry a dog, even a small one. Twist It Up - this was one of those products that made me wonder how he first discovered that something that looks like a tennis racket would work well. Did his older brother give him a "noogie" with a racquetball racket and when it wa over, he thought, "hey, my hair looks really good!" Wine guy - Add me to the list of non-drinkers, which in my case, also makes me a non-carer. Montessori lady - she had a product that was the solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
  22. And if the leak was in the basement, why did they have to make a hole in the wall in the kitchen?
  23. This. They managed to tie everything together but so much of it was based on things that were not believable.
  24. Amazon has them for $30-40 (not sure which models). Other companies have similar beer bottle coolers for under $20. I wonder what TSA would think about these small packets of powder in the suitcase. Put them in your carry on and you are almost guaranteed to have to go through an extra security check. I hope the packets are labeled well. I think they said something about how there is less waste because the packet material is dissolvable, but don't they have to wrap the packer in something to keep it clean? Would people really take an unwrapped packet, that has been sitting in the bottom of their gym bag, throw it into some water and drink it? Why not throw your gym socks in with it for flavor?
