    S09.E15: Bow Down

    Gracie's comment definitely demanded further questioning. Maybe she wants to poison him because he's hurting her, maybe not, but I hope Leah got the kid alone and asked some more detailed questions. I doubt it though. I hope that the girls have a stronger relationship with Corey. Even if there's no abuse in Leah's home, between the pills and the men, Leah has created an unstable environment for them. It's going to affect them later in life.

    Black Summer

    I like this show. It's super bleak but there's the right amount of cursing and it feels slightly more true to life than other zombie fiction in that people make really poor decisions because they're stressed out. I watch it while I work out and it's a great motivator, lol!

    S09.E14: Something We Said

    These women are still girls in so many ways. I don't know if the show has held them up or this is how they would have been regardless. Cmon Leah, birth control isn't that hard to figure out. Certain types make me sick but you keep trying until you find something that works. All her excuses did make it look like she wants a baby with Jason. Barb has lowered herself to Janelle's level in order to be accepted by her. Not a good look at all. Missed opportunity for Cole not to put American flags all over his diaper bag design. You had one job as a designer Cole!

    Maybe the "friend" who watches every show but Sally's, and also doesn't have time to watch shows (lol!) mentioned their conversation to the ex. In any case, that guy is so dead. I love how this show can be super serious/ very funny/ sad. I want Barry to get caught but I also see him as a sensitive guy who is also a product of a violence obsessed culture and I feel badly for him.

    S10:12 Tell All: Part 1

    Kodi and Meri's physical awkwardness is because they are like a new couple.

    Wouldn't she have shown up by now? Is Barry holding her somewhere and sneaking off to feed her? He hit her on the head and she lost her memory? He scared her into leaving permanently? All of those options are pretty lame. Before our every move was recorded, no body meant the person could be missing but with online banking, cameras everywhere, cell phone data etc if someone is offline for more than a week or so they're almost always dead. Convictions without a body used to be impossible but that's not as true anymore. It's pretty hard to go off the grid these days. But that's the real world. In the world of TV, I guess it's possible, but it's kind of cheap. I hope they don't go there.

    I assumed that Barry hid/ disposed of Janice's body so that he'd be harder to catch and prosecute. He's getting rid of any evidence he may have left on her body. I never thought she's alive. Henry Winkler was interviewed on Fresh Air yesterday and discusses Barry as well as his years as Fonzie. I thought it was a pretty good interview. He's very honest and funny.

    S09.E13: Home Is Home

    Didn't know they were realtors. Good for them! Still, you can lose your shirt if you aren't careful especially if they're doing commercial real estate, or so I've heard.

    S09.E13: Home Is Home

    Briana could have just called Devoin to talk about Nova and then later, brought Nova over to hang out. Dum dum. I didn't get a booty call vibe. They have so little chemistry, I'm surprised they made a kid. Something was up with Leah. She was slurring a bit and other times her words seemed out of order. She seemed confused. Poor Kaiser. Just let Nathan's mom raise him, jeez. Janelle sees her kids as her property and no one can take them away, well except the one that actually got taken away. I don't really get what's going on with Kail and Jo. It kind of sounded like Jo sunk all his money into a business that isn't going well. If that's the case, perhaps he should have gone to work for someone and learned the business like a normal person before going all in with his cash. Vee saying she didn't want Kail's money was smart. There would be so many strings attached, it's not worth it. Chelsea and Cole are outnumbered.

    Very Cavallari

    Jay had to get blotto in order to be able to stand all of Kristen and her friends shrieking and I don't blame him one bit.

    Cold Justice

    That was a really tragic episode and that's saying a lot because this show is pretty dark. The son killing himself on his mother's grave right after Mother's Day makes me imagine all their future visits to their mom's grave after their brother died. Mother's Day is an obvious time to go pay tribute too. If I were in their place, I don't know if I could handle ever going there again. Add to it the terrible things that were done to this sweet women and also the pictures of the bloody dog. Did they say that the children had to live with him for a year after the crime? It's just all so awful and I wonder how any of them stayed emotionally intact. So many of these cases on this show are domestic violence cases. I got into to true crime after a co-worker of mine was murdered by her husband. She was going to leave him but hadn't done it yet which is apparently the most dangerous time for a person. One thing I like about this show is that I get the sense they go to communities that can't afford to put enough resources on these crimes. Everyone kind of knows who did it (like the friend who said he was nervous and sweaty on the day of the murder) but it takes more time and research to gather the info to take to the DA. It is a public service in a way that a lot of other true crime shows aren't. You could possibly put Unsolved Mysteries in the same category or America's Most Wanted.

    S09.E12: Do the Dangle

    She should spend 20 minutes reading about attachment styles and perhaps this dysfunctional dance she and Chris are doing wouldn't mean so much to her. But, trying to learn or grow or take responsibility for her actions doesn't really seem to be her thing. I liked the twins with their dad and grandpa, so sweet. You can tell they all feel comfortable and really like each other. Contrasted with Luis and his obviously irritated demeanor. He doesn't have a bond at all with his kid and it's totally his fault. You think he'd feel badly about it but he just seemed pissed off. I didn't mind Cole and his dad of the year routine. Aubry needs it and with so many guys on this show being jerks, I kind of do too. Janelle who?

    10:09 Kody's Secret Plan

    The doctor calling Ysabel pretty was the least offensive part! Right after he called her pretty he said it was "dangerous" and asked Kody if he has a shotgun! It sounded like the doctor was planning to kidnap her or something. Seriously, that was out there. Can someone please tell Ysabel you can't exercise a spine curvature away? It's really messing with her sense of self. The sister wives all want to live across town from each other and Kody wants an easy commute. Janelle accidentally getting a house on the edge of town was hilarious. Sure Janelle. They will all accidentally get houses on the edge of town.

    Season 5 Discussion

    I just started watching this show and it kept me entertained while I worked on projects. The jail reminds me of a slightly more dangerous version of my high school, lol! What other seasons should I watch?

    S23.E11: Week 10: The Final Rose

    Colton has to be one of the most emotionally unstable and immature Bachelor's in the show's history. During his breakdown I really thought he might hurt himself. I guess the psych evals they do when they screen contestants aren't as tough to pass as the STD checks. I hope he's single and working on himself. He's not ready for a relationship or marriage or sex.

    Also the white cop saying "we own you" to him was totally disgusting.

    S01.E12: Heartbreak

    The plots on this show usually take a left turn into such unbelievable places, I thought maybe the stalker would end up being the serial killer's daughter. I like takes-himself-too-seriously Tim pairing up with the quirky, sexy librarian/ dispatcher lady. That guy needs to lighten up and his junkie wife, even sober, is a serious wet blanket.

    S02.E03: Coming Out Plural

    The pearl clutching over the steak seemed a little much. I'm a vegetarian and my husband eats meat, even beef and cooks it in our house. I just request that he open a window and use a pan specifically for that. It's seriously not a big deal. I was more surprised that Jennifer was smoking! Isn't that pretty forbidden? She seems a little shady to me, like she's trying too hard to be likable. Her life sounds pretty busy (bartending, manicurist, motorcycles). Is she really going to go live on a farm in the middle of nowhere and take care of someone else's kids? It's amazing to me that these folks barely know each other and are talking marriage. Aren't they worried that the person is just putting on a front?
  19. It seems like Cody is using his underage daughter's private, medical issue for drama for the show. This is a bad idea for so many reasons. I guess they got tired of wedding planning and now that Meri's inn is opening there's less going on. I had to have four eye surgeries when I was a kid and I'm so glad my father didn't "feel like" I didn't need them because "my life wasn't threatened". I would have been totally disabled without them.

    I was a little surprised that she chose to have kids. Radar had no childhood trauma (that he'll admit to) so you have to wonder if there's a strong genetic component. She has had to do a lot of work in order to move forward. She looked so much like Rader, it's a little startling. That probably makes it harder too.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    The judge said that there didn't appear to be abuse at the time (although my mom had witnessed emotional abuse) and that "it wasn't illegal to be dysfunctional". This was in 2000 so I wonder if the case would be treated the same today. I should add in the epilogue that my sister did leave the guy recently and he dealt with it by shooting a 9mm willy nilly into the street, near a school. A search of their home uncovered a lot of guns and a home made automatic weapon. His trial is next week. Very Davidesque.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    My mom sued her daughter and the new husband for custody.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    The Barb/ Jenelle relationship hits a bit close to home for me. My sister dated then married a guy a lot like David. She brought two kids into the marriage. At first we tried to get along with him but every time a boundary was put down, he'd explode. Eventually he ended up assaulting my mom. She brought charges (which didn't stick) and sued for custody of the kids and lost. We were never allowed to see them again. Fast forward almost 20 years and those kids (who did end up being abused) are homeless, addicted off and on, traumatized to the point to not being able to connect to others and build relationships, have careers etc.. I've tried to help them, they both have lived in my home but they are so traumatized and I have no deep roots with them we have been unable to build a relationship. Sometimes I watch the Barb/ Jenelle drama and think about what would have happened if I had worked harder to keep the lines open which would have meant excusing the guy who assaulted my mom. Would I have been able to help the children more? Would my sister have left him? Barb can treat Jenelle and David like the POS's they are and risk losing the children to the abuse or maybe sit and have a glass of wine and have a subtle, positive influence and provide support if Jenelle decides to leave. Abusers like to isolate and with Barb around more, Jenelle is less isolated. I don't know if I totally think this. I've been thinking about if from all angles. There really aren't any good choices here. The cycle of abuse is so hard to break.

    S23.E03: Week 3

    I thought the Bachelor rules clearly state that she who smelt the drama, dealt it which means Hannah has to go.
  25. He also said the women would be "sharing his member". Barf. What type of person is going to look at Grizzly Adams who lives in an RV with two kids and and his wife and say, "hmm this is a step up for me"? I need more info on the millennials. Why does one live a half hour away? What type of work do they all do? It was sad when the little girl said she missed her daddy. Polygamists often sell the lifestyle as something good for kids but this scenario seemed liked the opposite. Also, when they asked the first wife if the second wife was going to have kids her answer seemed pretty defensive. I think she got more than she bargained for.
