  1. The whole Rob and Patrice relationship screamed abuse to me. Pistol said that Rob was very involved for about a year, then suddenly got really nasty. The kid would have been about 9 or 10 then. The friend said that Rob set Patrice up with the business. He's 20 years her senior. I think he found a younger woman who was struggling a bit financially and thought that he could control her. He set up her business, and he felt she owed him. After a year, he realizes that her kid will always come first (because he should always come first) and gets more and more hateful. Takes it out on the kid. Tries to keep her from nurturing any other relationship that might take attention away from him, whether it's with friends or family. Vindictively keeps her separated from her true family even in death. Fantasizes about her final days. Even if he wasn't involved in her death, I have no doubt that he made her life hell. Very, very much a Jules vibe going on there. As for the guys who left Alonzo, I am not a fan. Given that at least one of them talk about a conflict between Zo and the dudes who were at the party, I just flat don't believe Justin. And leaving a guy an hour from home in a situation that has already been confrontational isn't just a miscommunication to me. That is just selfish. They should feel guilty. And Zo's family and other friends have every right to be angry at them. The feel of the show is lacking. It's a very well-made true crime, but the only thing that made it anything else was the UFO story. Those are my least favorite segments, so that's not enough. Will watch, but it's not UM.
  2. I finally watched this 2 years later, and this bothered me all season. The formidable Klingons weren't so formidable at all. This has been true in every Trek series. Other than Tasha, main members of the crew are never really in danger, but it bothered me more this time. Maybe I am just tired of Trek or maybe it's because this is a younger Federation. They just seemed to have too much overwhelming technology and tactics.
  3. A day for Frank Costanza episodes...
  4. If you want MST3K, Rifftrax, Cinematic Titanic and the Film Crew, just go to Shout Factory. Pluto TV, Tubi, Amazon Prime and the Rifftrax site are all great places, too. I don't bother with Netflix, especially since the new crew never did much for me. As for "evil Amazon," whatever. That's how capitalism works. All of it. I would rather focus on the disease than the symptom. I don't believe that kind of virtue signaling fixes the problem.
  5. It's a line/concept Sandra used in her second season.
  6. The dude who takes a great deal of pride in talking about how stupid he made someone look...even when they're supposedly friends and he knows it's going to be broadcast. Yeah, Rob is a dickhead. Good riddance. Hope this is finally the end of him.
  7. So, when Ethan got on the show, everyone was supposed to lay down and let him win? Strange, since I have always heard those called "sob stories" that don't make someone entitled to win. The anti-Michelle stuff? Whatever. Another young woman who gets the hate. What are you going to do?
  8. I have already made my views clear, but go read the link on the first page of the media thread. This is apparently not a one-time thing and it's not just something of the past. Multiple people who have worked on the show have backed it up as ongoing. Good riddance to bad rubbish. They have known about this for a long time, so production is complicit.
  9. Haven't there been stories of sexual harassment regarding Peck, especially in the early seasons? I seem to remember that, but am open to being corrected. I just remember reading something and feeling like he should have been shitcanned a long time ago. ETA: I went back to the first page, and found the link. Refers to both him and Nunez as "proud bigots and misogynists". http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/the-underbelly-reality-tv
  10. Ack. Didn't realize it started so early this season. Glad I checked in.
  11. The producers may think that, but I haven't seen anything compelling about Survivor since it became The Total Idol Experience with no actual survival involved. I was looking at Sandra's pictures of her and Christa together the other day, and it reminded me of how much I used to love the show and how often I check out of entire seasons these days.
  12. With everyone supporting Ted, what choice did Ghandia have but to let him off the hook? Just think about how everyone supported Dan and not Kellee in 2019. Now think of everyone supporting Ted in pre-MeToo era and where it put her. Dan was contrite to Kellee initially, too. But, hey, it's easier not to see just how shitty the Ted and Ghandia situation was because it covers for all of the those who kept their mouths shut at that time and vilified her so they could watch the show with a clear conscience. I mean, just look at the way the situations played out. Ghandia was worried enough about being touched that she brought it up with Ted, but it's being dismissed as "she wasn't really that bothered by it." Kellee was worried about Dan enough that she brought it up with him. There is literally no difference in how the two women handled unwanted touching, but for some reason it's a problem now, but not then.
  13. If Ghandia and Ted didn't do it, and Hatch and Sue didn't either, I have my doubts.
  14. There has been more than one all-male alliance, but men don't usually notice that and the show doesn't make a big deal about it. The female Survivors don't, either.
  15. To be honest, I am not broken up about this. Just never could get into the new one. I am fine with Rifftrax and old episodes of MST3K, Cinematic Titanic and The Film Crew. I generally prefer Mike, Bill and Kevin, anyway.
