  1. After "El Camino," I decided to rewatch the entire BrBa series. It's been a few years since I saw it beginning to end, and it once again amazes me how well-put-together it is. I'm just past the halfway point of Season 5, and I'm dreading what is coming up in the next few episodes. I know that "Fly" is a love it/hate it episode, but I've always loved it. But what struck me on the rewatch is just how suspenseful it is. I know, from having watched it a few times, that Walt isn't going to confess to Jesse about watching Jane die, but it's so well played that I was on the edge of my seat whil
  2. Like I said, it’s been a while since I saw the last run of episodes, so I’d forgotten what Skinny and Badger told Walt. So you may be right. I still think he intended to kill Jesse until he realized Jesse was being kept prisoner, but I guess I need to rewatch the final season.
  3. I agree. I think his initial plan was to kill Jesse along with everyone else. I haven't watched the finale in a while, but I seem to recall Walt hearing about that blue meth was still out there, and assuming that Jesse was profiting from what Walt perceived as his genius work (much like he saw Gretchen and Elliott as profiting from his work with Gray Matter). So I wonder if there's a real person out there who functions like the vacuum guy, helping criminals disappear from the old lives and create new identities. And then I started pondering about what Ed Galbraith did with all that money.
  4. I was blown away by Aaron Paul's performance in this. Jesse has always been my favorite BB character, and I worried that he would be killed off in the last few episodes of BB. So I was a little nervous about watching El Camino, because I didn't want him to die. Overall, I thought it was a satisfying epilogue to the story. But what an amazing performance by Paul. I'm curious as to whether he might be eligible for an Oscar nomination, since the film will be shown in theaters. I think it would be well deserved. I loved the scenes with Skinny Pete and Badger, and Skinny giving Jesse his
  5. I think Jackson's character starting going downhill when they hooked him up with Maggie. He was fun when he was single, and I liked him with April until they got weighted down with tragedy, but he's been much less compelling these past two seasons. He still has one of my favorite moments, though, talking to Meredith about his breakup with April after she failed her boards and went home to the farm. "And now she's praying ... to Justin Timberlake, apparently."
  6. "Four Weddings" has been my mindless summer binge-watch, after finding three seasons on Hulu and then discovering I could watch the entire series on TLC website. Like everyone else here, I love to hate-watch BLAN bride and Dracula-Marie, but a couple of things I've noticed that I haven't seen mentioned. One bride took off points from another's overall score because "the potatoes at the potato bar were smooth, and I like mine lumpy." Seriously?? And then there was the princess bride wannabe who had three dresses and talked about being in love with her shoes. At the reception, one of
  7. "It takes a toll:" Chris Underwood talks about "Survivor: Edge of Extinction" Turns out Reem wasn't so bad after all!
  8. I think Chris is likable, and he obviously has a knack for using sales techniques on the other players. But thinking back to the first episode after he was voted off, the other tribe members were utterly shocked that he was voted off. I remember Probst saying he'd never seen a reaction like that. So, taking that into consideration, it's not that surprising that he got most of the jury to vote for him. He had their respect before they ever knew him as anything other than a guy from an opposing tribe, then they got to know him on EoE. Plus, you feed a bunch of starving people on a deserted
  9. Yeah, he deserves $1 million just for that!
  10. Have I completely lost track of time? I thought the finale was airing tonight.
  11. I was happy to see Chris win. This is my first Survivor season (except for a few episodes of S1), so I’m sure I’m coming at it with a much different perspective than a longtime fan. I didn’t have any real favorites, but there were lots of people I didn’t like. So glad that Devens lost; his faux-playful arrogance got on my nerves. And I suppose I get why people think Chris is undeserving because he was out of the game, but I think he took the best of a not-great situation and played a pretty decent game when he returned. Took guts (I assume) to give up immunity to fight Devens with f
  12. I’m still a newbie, so here’s my question: players talk a lot about “sitting next to” someone at final tribal council. What is the significance of that? And are they speaking literally about sitting next to a specific person?
  13. I also feel like they’re forgetting about Henry. That relationship was played as the love of Teddy’s life. I know they weren’t together all that long, but for Teddy to say that Owen is the only one who’s ever made her feel all these emotions, I don’t know, but I feel like it’s almost erasing that entire relationship.
  14. Jackson and Maggie are doctors, and they don’t take a first aid kit when they go camping? She at least needs a Benadryl, and I know that not every first aid kit has it, wouldn’t Jackson have gotten the fanciest, most voluminous first aid kit available to go with his upscale camping gear? That looked like a pretty sweet air mattress; surely he was as picky with his first aid kit purchase. I just really don’t like those two together, though I think Jackson is an interesting character in every other aspect of the show. Owen actually had some good moments this episode. I agree they shoul
