  1. A couple of weeks ago there were additional charges added to Ghislaine Maxwell's indictment that extend the window of time that authorities are investigating. Previously they were looking at 1994-1997 and Andrew claims that he didn't meet Epstein until 1999, which means the evidence they were examining are from a period of time when Andrew wasn't involved (assuming he was being honest about the timing of his first meeting with Epstein). Now they're also looking at evidence from the period 2001-2004, a period after Andrew acknowledges becoming friends with Epstein. I mean, in a way it's

    Loving/The City

    I wish they would do more of those reunions with fewer people involved in each. There was some good tea in the ladies' reunion, but there were so many people involved that everyone basically only got one question. I'd love to see reunions of Randolph Mantooth/Lisa Peluso, Robert Tyler/Noelle Beck (this was the most recent photo of him I could find, it's post-Loving but still 16 years old, lol), and, although I know it would probably never happen for various reasons, a reunion featuring Michael Weatherly/Amelia Heinle/Paul Anthony Stewart/Laura Wright.

    Loving/The City

    I've read elsewhere that Dinah Lee was originally meant to be the character who died in the plane crash that happens a couple of months later, so I wonder if they were in negotiations with Beck with the intention of bringing Trisha back and killing off Dinah Lee, but had to change course when the deal couldn't be closed and decided to recast Dinah Lee instead. Certainly it would have been beyond brutal for Trucker to come that close to finding out Trisha was alive only for it to come to nothing and then for Dinah Lee to die on top of that. She came back for, I think, about a week's wor
  4. I'm now at episode 547 (September 22, 1986) and it's amazing how, no matter what happens to her (Keith preying on her, Gina getting her addicted to crack, losing Brandon), I just can't feel sorry for Santana because she's such an obnoxious cow all the time. Victoria Lane has just arrived on the scene and I already have the feeling that I'm going to feel the same way about her. Loving Gina and Keith.
  5. I recently got into some 1987 episodes (unfortunately the channel that I was watching, which appeared to have much of the year, got deleted from Youtube. I've picked up the year at archive.org but it has some pretty lengthy gaps between episodes). Some highlights include: * Mark's addiction story leading to his intervention (I'm amazed that Mark LaMura didn't snag an Emmy for this because he was fantastic) * Ross and Natalie's affair. It feels weird to say so, because I know that it ends with him raping her, but they were really hot at the start. I also like how other threads were wo

    Loving/The City

    I'd love to hear other people's thoughts on 1994's "Trisha might be alive, no it was just a hoax (although actually she is alive)" storyline. I thought the beginning and middle were strong (although I hate that Buck is the person to bust Curtis and present as a moral authority when he's the whole reason Trisha went missing in the first place and he never suffered any consequences from that), but the ending is weak. Trucker goes all the way to Rome to confront Jeff and all Jeff has to say is "No, Trisha's not here" and Trucker's like, "Well, good enough for me. I mean, Jeff did let everyone thi

    Loving/The City

    It was up for a while, but the channel (which had posted all of the episodes encompassing the murders storyline) got taken down, as so many soap channels have over the last year. I would imagine that Tudor's lack of a nomination had at least a little to do with the fact that the show had been off the air for five months by the time the nominations came out, although I doubt ABC ever made much of a push to help Loving get recognized at the Emmys given how few nominations it ever received. I believe the only actors who ever got nominated for the show were Noelle Beck and Bernard Barrow, wh

    Eden Atwood. Her character's name was Staige.
  9. That's not really the case, though. While the Queen certainly enjoyed a good stretch of time where she seemed largely immune to criticism (around 2010 up to Andrew's disastrous interview, by my reckoning) and where her image/the image of the RF in general was bolstered by several events (the Cambridge wedding, the London Olympics, the Jubilee, the births of the Cambridge children, the Sussex wedding) that were PR slam dunks that allowed the RF to show itself off in pomp and splendor and enjoy genuine cultural relevance, the Queen's reign has been marked by occasions where she's been criticized

    Loving/The City

    I was an occasional viewer of The City during its run, though not a lot about it has stuck with me. I remember that they had a transgender character (the first on an American soap, I think) who was written out pretty soon after the "reveal" but my recollection is that she at least got a happy ending with her boyfriend. I also remember Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot was also a producer on the show, I believe, as well as being a producer on Loving during its final stretch) coming on and marrying a mobster, and a heavily pregnant Amelia Heinle in a love scene with the guy who played Tony. I
  11. Sigh... I miss Erica:
  12. I guess, but James also didn't try to play word games over it when confronted. The reason Elizabeth was grilled was because she kept verbally contorting herself to try to get out of admitting that she'd been in the cabin - I was frustrated watching it, so I can only imagine how frustrated Francesca was as she was trying to get a straight answer out of her. Although, that said, I think Francesca was wrong to have that initial conversation in front of everyone rather than privately.
  13. James was reprimanded for that as well.
  14. Wow, Rachel sure changed her tune/attitude once she realized she wasn't going to be able to turn Lee against Francesca. Not that it's going to matter since their season is coming to an abrupt end.
  15. I think she's about to learn the hard way that most people can't get away with that as easily after 30 as they might have before 30. Rachel is so exhausting. It's like she can't function unless she can make a performance out of how aggrieved she is towards someone.
