    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    I'm almost never affected anymore but this one got to me. I think it was the fact that two separate men on two separate occasions woke up and (as the one mom pointed out) went to the park on a beautiful day and decided to rape and kill a little girl. No biggie. Just saw them and took them for their own gratification. I'm angry and DISGUSTED because I know there are plenty more where they came from. What is wrong with some men? I don't get it.

    S09.E08: Showdown at Villa Rosa

    Nobody will ever be able to convince me that Kyle isn't still bitter over the Mauricio/tabloids incident. I think the vast majority of her issues with LVP is because she's holding that grudge.

    Oh, Williams needs to stay exactly where he is. I thought the show was very well done but I hated the inclusion of Frank Ski and the other lady who were so charmed by Williams. Of course he made you believe him; he's a sociopath. That's the beauty of evidence, of which there is plenty. The rest of the cases need a closer look if even just to say definitively that Williams did them (except the girls, I agree that they don't fit).

    I'm all for reexamining the case to get justice for the families of the other, what, 20+ dead children who have never received answers. Maybe Williams will be tied to all of them. Maybe not. But let's not pretend like they didn't haphazardly throw all the murders in his lap just to close the case and shut the community up. I think he did most if not all of them but many of the families are still wondering. Wouldn't you want to know for sure one way or the other? I would. And if you know anything about the history of the south, you would know the klan angle isn't far-fetched at all. Again, I think Williams is guilty but I don't understand all the resistance to taking another look.

    Agree about Children in the Snow although the BTK show gave it a run for its money. I had never seen BTK's personal pictures and I literally got nauseous. Both docs were well-done. CITS was like watching a real-life version of True Detective.

    On the latest Evil Lives Here: Your son is mean and emotionally unstable. What better way to bond than to buy him guns? And then when you see that he's accumulated an ARSENAL of guns and ammo, you pat yourself on the back because he's finally interested in something. I'm a gun owner myself but I will never understand these kinds of parents. I literally wanted to slap that father across the face.

    S03.E04: The Hour and the Day

    I find these posts confusing. Are some under the impression that racism/racial unrest related to the police only started after Ferguson? Anyhow, I enjoyed this episode. I agree with those who found some of the acting/dialogue to be less than stellar but it didn't overshadow the good stuff for me. Amelia and Hays continue to blow me away in their scenes together and Lucy really got a chance to shine this week.

    S11.E12: Texts, Lies & Therapy

    No to Kenya coming back, yes to Phaedra! Kandi annoys me because she never owns her messiness. I don't mind vengeance or pettiness, but I haaaate passive aggressive. This whole thing is backfiring on her because even her own fans are telling her to move on. Dennis the menace...yuck.

    S11.E08: Final Destin-ation

    Hmmm, I do think New Edition is a legendary group which makes Ronnie legendary by extension. But I agree that she goes overboard when she says it five times per episode. That first time during her first episode was enough. Not to nitpick, but I don't think mainstream or crossover success is any indication of anything for R&B artists other than more money (yay!) and white acceptance (meh). I can think of quite a few R&B groups or artists that never crossed over who are beloved and legendary to the AA community.

    S11.E08: Final Destin-ation

    I really enjoyed this episode. And I agree that everybody deserved their win. My favorite shady quotes: Eva to Marlo after losing the runway challenge: Marlo you know exactly how this feels since you just lost Kandi: Marlo is always giving advice nobody asked for Shamari: all Dennis needed was a top hat and a four leaf clover Porsha: well I love a good brow but your husband doesn't have any LMAO Also, I learned that legends don't need eyebrows. Thanks Shamari!

    S11. E07: Sisterhood of the Traveling Peaches

    I hate Marlo but damn if she didn't make me cackle. Her drive-by shade toward Eva was so random and odd that it bordered on absurdity which cracked me up. Big sister is code for Auntie and Nene knows it and that's why she was offended by the Miami snub. Eva. Girl. Facial region? Just...no. Porsha and Ace were adorable. He really took to her. Like father, like son lol. Not a lot happened on the episode but I enjoyed it.

    I know I'm just a pathetic moo cow and therefore would have been pitied by Chris but it was still a sad story. And I'm sure his family has to be kicking themselves looking back on what should have been an obvious ruse. Then again, if you live a semi-nomadic life, your loved ones probably wouldn't think much of you up and leaving like that.

    Re: last night's People Magazine Investigates...I would be far too ashamed to go on national TV and admit "the killer told me 20 years ago that he killed that girl but I didn't tell anybody because I thought he was kidding/nobody asked me/I forgot/just never got around to it."

    S01.E07: Hold the Salt

    Yes, obviously we all have different experiences and opinions and yes it would be rude to track mud or visible dirt in. But for me it's better to clean germs off my floor than to make a guest feel uncomfortable. A guest usually will not tell you they're uncomfortable/you're rude but I feel strongly about this because I was a pregnant guest in someone's home and she insisted on me removing my shoes. I was embarrassed by my swollen feet and had to ask her for socks. I was polite and kept my thoughts to myself but I never set foot in her house again. To bring this back to the show lol, Darlene was clearly uncomfortable with removing her shoes. It wouldn't have killed him to just clean up after she left. Making an issue of it just made him seem like a jerk to me.

    S01.E07: Hold the Salt

    I stand with Darlene on the shoe thing. I was raised to put the guest's comfort first. If the guest insists on wearing shoes, let them (barring cultural or religious reasons). Why? Maybe they have ugly feet they're embarrassed to show. Maybe their socks don't match. Maybe THEY have a thing about germs and don't know how clean your floors are. Or maybe they're just generally more comfortable that way. Now the wine thing could go either way for me but I lean toward Darlene here, too. She's on her own with the salt :D I thought it was a solid episode although the Jackie storyline makes me sad. But I agree that it's totally in character for her to choose a guy like...forgot his name. Blue didn't annoy me and I found her scene very funny and germane to the story.
