    S15.E06: Week 5, Part 2

    I looked up those traits: Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Sometimes including patronizing behavior. Sure sounds like our bossy, pageant girl to me.

    Couldn't agree more. A show without much Bright is a show lacking something for me.

    Yes! I saw that and it did look like Luke P's pick up and slam down of Luke S was a fairly defensive move. Luke S attacked in anger so he kind of got what he deserved and shouldn't have gone crying to Mama Hannah about it. I think the panic and drama in production would have made a much better show this year. At some point they had to see that Hannah was stuck on a dumb meathead, the rest of the men weren't having much fun, and it just wasn't going to be a very romantic or interesting journey for the fans to watch. So they went into the editing room, caught the moment she tells Luke, "You don't own me!" and said, "There! That shall be our theme and we have the great Leslie Gore song to promote it!" After that they had to edit the whole show to highlight Hannah's "strong woman" moments, even if they were really just hissy fits, bossy lectures and long boring dates where she tries to tell the men, "Let's talk about me!" without really saying it. We're just stuck with all this until the fantasy suite dates, which promise to make for some really good message board -- which is why I watch in the first place.

    After all the gorgeous women who have gone through this show, why in the world has Chris Harrison fallen in fascination with Hannah? Is it because she throws herself in his arms during all her crying spells? Is it that big left leg that finds it's way out of half her gowns? Do men just want to get lost in that mouth? I'll never understand the male mind, but at this point it doesn't look like millionaire Chris has anymore chance with her than any of the other guys because she is simply drooling over Luke. If she's keeping him through all this just to get to the fantasy suite and then he turns her down? A completely wasted season.

    They keep trying to sell this as the most dramatic season ever, and it's really, by far, the most boring one. So far we've had two guys arguing over a game, a bunch of the guys not liking one of the other guys,two men talking with their voices slightly raised. All the drama is just Hannah overreacting to every little thing, and lecturing the men for talking about anything other than how awesome she is. She's sobbed during every episode over nothing much at all -- but Hannah just hates drama. They need to bring on some more blood sports to cheer her up.

    Endeavour

    During the old murder case, one of the police had planted a bloody hammer so the prosecution would have a murder weapon -- the box Endeavor found had the real hammer in it. So Thursday was relieved to know he didn't hang the wrong man, but he knew all his past police work would be tainted if it became known that evidence had once been planted. Thursday is just so sad. He has to work for a thug, his wife is chronically depressed, his relationship with his daughter is strained. The fedora. On the other hand, when the horrible photographer started talking about one of the little girls as "sugar and spice," I was saying, "Punch him Thursday!" and was not disappointed. This remains one of the most beautifully filmed, compelling shows, I don't even care if I lose the plot, just watching Endeavor walk through that field after the white horse was wonderful.

    S15.E05: Week 5: Scotland

    And I see every sheltered teenager in her freshman year of college. A lot of young women who weren't really allowed to do much in high school get that first taste of freedom in college and go crazy.Drink too much, screw any guy who wants to and go for the "jock type" or the "bad boy" because every show and movie they watched in high school told them that's the prize to win. Hannah actually was that teenager six years ago. Since then she hasn't been frozen in time, but went on to experience three more years of college, spend a year travelling as Miss Alabama, competed in Miss USA and spent months on The Bachelor show, traveling and meeting women from all over. Who knows what else she's experienced?

    S15.E05: Week 5: Scotland

    I'll be interested in meeting Hannah's family. We keep hearing about her "Christian values," but I haven't seen any particular evidence of them. So far we know she was allowed to enter the pageant world from a very young age, where girls are required to parade around in bikinis for the purpose of having their bodies critiqued and beauty is the highest value. She admires men who obviously spend a lot of time at the gym making their own bodies look a certain way. She likes violent sports and doesn't mind seeing men hurt each other. Her chosen profession is something to do with decorating. She had no problem spreading gossip about Caelynn and seems to encourage gossip from the men. She's more sexual in public places, in front of the cameras, than any Bachelorette we've had yet. Not that there's anything wrong with any of that, but I'm not just not seeing anything particularly Christian about it either, or why people keeps saying she's so young, inexperienced and innocent. I see a grown woman who's been walking on the wild side for a while now.

    Hannah looks great in pageant mode -- huge smile and long glamour hair. At last night's rose ceremony her hair was up, showing her broad shoulders and very round face and her unsmiling mouth is just not very pretty. Of course, eye of the beholder and all. I'm just not a fan of her type.

    By around 9:45 I started to feel really sorry for Luke. Hannah: Every single guy in the house hates you. I want a man that people are drawn to. Luke: Honestly in the past, in school and in sports everybody loved me. Hannah: I hate you for saying that! Through the whole date she was telling him she was mad at him for not being rill, but every time he said anything at all, it was wrong somehow, and she couldn't explain why. I had no idea what she wanted from him. Then she goes to the producers to get them to work on Luke or tell her what to say (as they've probably been doing all along) but even they don't know what she wants from Luke, so they can't help. I just want him to go home and find some nice girl who's as dumb as he is and they can live happily ever after, working out and watching cartoons.

    I keep thinking it's Joe, too, mainly because he's always impressed me as sort of a jerk, but I'm trying to keep my opinion on a leash until we know for sure. I keep hoping Julia will step out and tell us so I can release the hate!

    I hate it when someone tells a story like this and doesn't name the culprit, because now everyone but Ron is a racist in somebody's mind. ETA: I'm back an hour later after skirting around the internet to see if my own worst fear was true and, sure enough, several sites had already decided that it absolutely had to be Gavin -- because he's from the south, of course. Then Gavin popped up to say: Proving just what I always thought about Gavin, that he's a very sweet guy, not terribly up to date or savvy, just a good guy who loves his new wife. Now lots of people who just skim information will think he's a racist.

    Ewww, now I'm sick of him, already. I'm not a big fan of Hannah's, but I don't want to see her get played by some guy whose, "I want you," looks are a practiced art. All of a sudden that baby faced pilot seems like a keeper.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I was desperately trying to think of her name and then I was saying what about the two who died young? Well Alex wont have Emma to push around anymore. I was very fond of the Mattie Ross lookalike.

    That's probably how Alex pronounces it anyway. If we get a category tonight called, "Lyrics of Gordon & the Music Man," we should be so ready. I was complaining recently, as old people do, about the new musicals having so few songs you can sing along with. Then I started naming all the Music Man songs I could sing. They went on and on. Out of tune but still.

    JoJo may have had one too, but Rachel's guys definitely had a spelling bee. Kenny misspelled Champagne and I seem to remember Eric's word being hilariously wrong -- and his claim to fame was having written a book. I think the show was embarrassed and wont be putting their hunky cast to the test anytime soon.

    I thought Alex was being patronizing. Others may think she learned it from James, but for him to accuse her of it right in the middle of the game was a bit much. That's what I've been thinking, she looks even more like her with the True Grit haircut.

    Crimes You'd Like To See On Dateline: Calling Keith Morrison!

    I hope Dateline is onto this one already. Jennifer Dulos is missing and estranged husband and his girlfriend arrested. I'd like Josh to do this one. I'd like to hear him say to Fotis, "Now most men with missing wives would keep their affair on the down-low -- but you didn't do that did you?"

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I find myself looking forward to watching Emma tonight almost as much as I've been looking forward to James these past weeks. Last night, even though I had been spoiled I didn't know which contestant was going to beat James, but as soon as she started to talk to Alex, I said "Oh yeah, she's going to do it." Almost every single super smart girl I've known talks like Emma -- as though everything she says is slightly ironic. Even fictional Amy on the Big Bang Theory talks that way. I also like her slight lisp which takes off some of the hard edge. The King is dead, long live the Queen!

    That's him! Thank you. Since the line is too long for Tyler, I'll jump over to the express lane for Garrett. Even in real life I always shied away from the super sexy studs like Tyler. Unlike Luke P, I'm not a competitor. I did love what Tyler said to Hannah about not wanting her best self, but her real self. For all Hannah's talk about being, "rill," I think she's actually lived her life with the beauty pageant mantras ringing in her ears. Always be smiling! Always look on the bright side! Put on a happy face! Never lose your sparkle! Put a bounce in your step! Turn on your very best self! Hold in your stomach! You only have one chance to make a first impression! I've looked at a dozen videos of Hannah, starting with her ballet "talent" in her chubby teen pageants. Her weight goes up and down a lot and I can almost feel the strain she's going through keeping it to Miss Alabama weight for the show. In fact I think she was smaller in last night's episode than the first two shows. I hope she does have an honest epiphany during all this, lets her façade slip, and finds someone who loves her for herself.

    Well said. There's nothing worse than a lying, violent bully, but when a grown man wants to spend all evening whining to the mother figure about how some other boy played too rough and, "He hurt me!" eh, not a keeper either. Wake up Hannah! She saw Luke P for who he was last week with the clinging and acting like they were a couple already because he had declared his love. Then his sudden tight jawed anger after she criticized him a little bit. I wasn't surprised when the gang said Luke P had been packing his bags to leave, he's obviously one of those guys who thinks all he has to say to a girl is, "I choose you," and from that moment on expects the relationship to be 100 percent about her telling him how awesome he is. He's the type who would be jealous of his own children for the attention they get. If Hannah can't think past how Luke P looked in his tiny speedo then she's as shallow as Ben Flapjack. Who is the guy who always has the soothing words of wisdom for the other men? During the game I heard him say to someone (maybe Luke S.) who was all upset over the rough play, "It's not what happens to you it's how you handle it that matters." I hear the words but can't always figure out which guy is talking.

    CBS news spoiled me just before the show. They've already received my hate mail. Well I've been saying it would take a young woman to beat him. If he had any weakness it was pop culture that leans toward women. Goodbye James, thanks for all the excitement and entertainment!
