    That's what worries me about Missy: she seemed to be confident in the fact that she was the smartest person in the room. She comes off like an accomplished liar & manipulator who will do/say anything to get her own way. He's a pretty boy who has gotten by on his looks and wealth to date; she's methodical and deliberate. Perhaps this is going too far, but I hope the plaintiff has surveillance cameras around her home.

    I have to say, both Jacob and the girlfriend had nice hair. Too bad everything below is off in those two. Watching the girlfriend, I don't think it was a physical therapy appointment she was rushing home for. And the more I watched her speak, the more I wanted to put her behind the 20 foot walls. She seemed much more certain of her privilege than he did; "affluenza" describes him perfectly, but she seems downright sinister. And she's only 16? I feel for her future college roommates.
  3. In my mind, Mary Cooper wasn't there because she couldn't get a passport in time. (Can you get a passport in two months? I've never cut it that close.)

    I don't have a hard time believing the daughter threw a hissy fit, nor do I have a hard time believing that the mother is at the end of her rope with the daughter. Would JJ have told the mother to eat the cost of the repair if the daughter had hit the mother's car instead of knocking the shower apart? And in the text, the one that JJ kept reading aloud in the clips (the "I'm having a hard time mama"): I think the lack of punctuation/capitalization worked in the daughter's favor. I didn't read "I'm having a hard time, Mama." I saw "I'm having a hard time believing your estimates. Mama D says that ...." Cases like this make me feel a little less sad about not having kids.

    Going back to the case of the lions: did anyone else think that JJ was ready to throw out the case (with all the questions about lawyers, and "closing costs" - she got caught up in things that had nothing to do with what was in front of her), only to be confronted with irrefutable proof of a side deal (which she at first dismissed, not recognizing the defendant's reply at the top of the email?!?!?!)? It makes me wonder what else JJ dismisses/rushes through in pursuit of sushi day. But at least she grudgingly acknowledged she was wrong. With a less prepared plaintiff, the defendants could have been able to declaim the side bargain, and make off with the lions. How many other cases are like this one?

    The defendant wasn't scared enough of him to avoid barging into the plaintiff's house in July. This whole case felt like JJ was a cat who was enjoying playing with two mice, and then got bored with both and dismissed them. The plaintiff deserved something; feelings are not evidence! Based on the defendant's affect, I'd be shocked to learn that the plaintiff is the only person in their small city who doesn't like her. For all we know, Jake is gaslighting her. Where was he? Jake is the Macguffin of the whole thing. Her account of six months worth of fear doesn't hold up when you take the confrontation in the defendant's home three months into this reign of terror. JJ made it up as she went along; must be the hair extensions in the ponytail.

    Totally agree. The defendant has a kind of deer-in-headlights expression, as if she never expected the plaintiff to get his act together enough to go after her. Where is Jake in all this? And is there trouble in paradise - is the defendant's witness admitting that the defendant made it to work the first crack in their collusion? Will the witness have to find a new office manager after this, or a divorce attorney?

    Regarding the unlawful eviction case: would a woman's shelter have room for the contents of the apartment? I thought there was a moment when JJ was going to trot out the old standby - "if your x was in the apartment, then you still owed rent" - but perhaps that has been retired. I think the plaintiff fled for her safety, and the landlord should have sucked up the rent owed as a quid pro quo for not getting sued over the assault. But there was so much left unexplained. It felt like JJ knew how she was going to rule before anyone said anything, and she just gave the defendant a chance to use enough rope.....
  9. Perhaps I’m overthinking this, but where did the money for the campaign-handouts come from? The swag was modest, but still required money. And is Sheldon class president (only sophomores) or student body president? Why would sophomores be the only ones making school announcements?

    S06.E19: Eight-Bit Goldbergs

    What happened to Valley (college-roommate) Erica? Didn't we get the info on the arrest last year, when Erica and Barry went to Florida for Spring Break? Is the show on its last legs? How long before there is an episode of the Goldbergs watching Adam's old videos?

    Anyone see last night’s Austin case? Thank heaven for night vision! The walk comparison was spooky.

    I saw the hair, and the phrase “mutton dressed as lamb” came to mind. It was only in one case; was this a premature April Fool’s thing? It looked like a mullet in progress.

    I KNEW the defendant looked familiar, but couldn't place him. While the copyright discussion went in circles, my mind did too. Thank you!

    S03.E08: The White Elephant

    How’s this for speculation: Albert collapses with an unknown illness, but recovers next season. Unfortunately, the illness renders him bald. (Bye-bye, forelock!)

    I loathe cliffhangers, especially in finales. Will there be a season 4?
