  1. If Simone is a condescending bench, then please let the world be full of more condescending benches. So far, the show has had her be friendly to everyone she's met. She appears to have gotten along with both hoity toity Tahani, gossipmonger John, sweet but dumb Jason, perpetually tortured Chidi, and once insecure and snarky, but now super mature Eleanor. When presented with a rational argument from Chidi about how she might not be living in some extended dream sequence, she accepted his premise and changed her behavior to one that respected her fellow Good Place inhabitants. As for her s
  2. Reading the article, it appears that there have been more than just two accusers over the years. The article mentions the names of three other women who claim Polanski raped them sometime in the late 70s and early 80s when they still were teenagers. Their accusations were made public during the past 10 years.
  3. That implies that she cares if people find her job useless. She’s been in on the joke for years Yes. I’m sorry I can’t find a link to the article I read years ago on the subject, but she was interviewed about her job and legacy and she made it clear that she knows any idiot can do her job. She had a really good sense of humor about it.
  4. The funny thing is, even his girlfriend and former prosecutor, Kimberly Guilfoyle didn't want to get near his stink on that issue. She kept distancing herself from him in the retelling of the tweet. (Paraphrase) Sunny: Do you know it's a felony to release the name of a whistleblower? DJT: I didn't release the name. Sunny: You did release the name. Kimberly: Well, umm, see ... Sunny: Did you, Kimberly, advise DTJr that it was legal to release the name? Kimberly: No, no, of course not. I mean, let's make it clear, I was NOT there when he did it. I had stepped i
  5. I agree that there is no one right way to grieve; and like I said before, I don't mind Meghan posting those T + whatever number of days photos. There is however a wrong way to grieve. Using your grief as an excuse to be abusive towards others, especially your coworkers, is wrong. It is something both good and bad people do. The difference is good people will usually feel some sense of shame, embarrassment, guilt or regret for their actions and then course correct. It's been two years since Sen. McCain's diagnosis and Meghan has yet to course correct. I'm pretty sure I know the reason why.
  6. I wish Sunny would just let it rip on Meghan one day. Sunny clearly knows her stuff, and so often looks like she's trying not to give Meghan the what for, but that really needs to end. McCain hasn't taken the hint that Hostin is going light on her all of the time. I don't mind Sunny's cutesy moments in that interview or on the show. I don't know, I find them ... cute. She doesn't have to be cutesy mind you, but if that's part of the way she sees herself, then that doesn't bother me.
  7. Eh, my mom was my best friend when she died and she was only 43. I was 14 years old. I always kind of look at my life with her as a gift. None of us is guaranteed tomorrow. I'm not sure why Meghan doesn't see it the same way considering her father was SO old and she had plenty of time with him. Twenty years later and I still think about my mom everyday. I just don't go around lording it over people that my mother died from cancer, which she did. I am especially not and never was under the misconception that I was the first to be dealt this hand, something Meghan appeared to be unaware of durin
  8. It's hard for me to call anything tame that has full frontal footage of explicit sex acts. I'm like some of the other posters in that I like Kathryn Hahn. I don't even know how this show got onto my Amazon Prime watch list. I must have added it upon seeing Hahn in the thumbnail. The son is a jerk, but he's a believable jerk, sadly enough. Yes, she apologized for "being mean" at the party. I was waiting for the twist where she ... I don't know, humiliated or cussed him out or something. I've been sent a lot of dick pics, all unsolicited (I'm on a couple of dating apps; men really li
  9. I may be remembering this wrong, but I believe he only takes the filter off when Michael suggests it. There's another scene towards the end where Brent is back at the links and he's using the filter again. It's not smug to be repulsed by those who would look down on you for not coming from their background which is exactly what Brent did to everyone the second he set foot in the Good Place. If there's bad blood between him and Team Cockroach/Simone over that matter, he's the one provoking it. As we can see, Tahani judges others based on her upbringing all of the time but she's not an ass
  10. I love Vicki. I loved her when she was playing Good Eleanor, and I liked her when she was just being her insufferable demon self. That actress cracks me up. I saw her in a movie with the actress who plays Cece in New Girl and they were great. I'm sad to see her go. Could someone explain something to me. It was bothering me in the previous episode where we learned that Good Janet was really Bad Janet. How is that neighborhood still running? Good Janet said she was controlling everything and that it was very difficult managing all of the people and the facade and everything, right? When the
  11. That was my understanding of the judge's rules, but I may have misunderstood. I always thought that the point of the new experiment was to show that at least some humans can improve, not necessarily all humans.
  12. I think that this was also my favorite moment. The actor who played Ben was laughing so hard his face turned red and white. He looked like he was going to pop a blood vessel. That level of Jonah hate gets my support. Me too. She clearly just doesn't get subtext. The thing is, I think Minna does get subtext. I mean she advised Selena on the Chinese talks and correctly predicted every reaction the Chinese were going to have right down the the inappropriateness of Selena's outfit. I think when we saw her in the earlier seasons she was also pretty astute at understanding cul
  13. Hi, I wanted to read old posts about The Man in the High Castle and when I clicked on the current forum, the first post links to a vaulted forum. There seems to be no vaulted forum however. The link just takes me to this page, and when I search The Vault there is no The Man in the High Castle topic. Is it lost forever? Also, as an aside, I notice that when I try to bookmark vaulted forums to appear on my customized homepage, they never do. Is this supposed to be the case? Thanks.
  14. I agree with what you've said about how the show balanced Eleanor's and Tahani's negative traits with bad ones, but I actually love Brent. Or I love laughing at how awful he is. It's like catharsis for me that the show has him as the butt of so many jokes. If he improves, that will be great, but if he doesn't, I will have no problem with them sending him straight to the Bad Place when all is said and done.
  15. Or when the do request a doggie bag, it comes in the form of a tinfoil swan.
