    S02.E06: The Bad Mother

    It’s more an issue of transparency. If it’s a public hearing, then the public can witness the process and feel comfortable with the ultimate decision being made.

    One thing I forgot to say earlier regards Ed. Ed, run from any woman who tells you she is writing about you in a “masturbation diary.” Run from any woman who promises a meaningless one night stand while staring at you with crazy eyes. This woman will not just let you just have a one night stand. She will hunt you down, murder your family and feast on your blood. More seriously, she’s trying way too hard with you Ed, and it’s kind of obvious that you are just part of what I’m sure is her overly elaborate revenge plan. She will drop you immediately after climax.

    Mad Men

    Don was quasi-self made. Without his fake identity and Anna's willingness to go along with his stealing the real Dick's identity, he could easily have ended up in a military brig for desertion, and had that lead to a dishonorable discharge. I do agree though that Don was very talented, and obviously had a flare for copy writing. In fairness, Joan was the office manager, not a secretary. I think it was even that way at Sterling Cooper. She was sometimes called on to do secretarial work, but she was in charge of the pool, rather than one of them.

    She's bringing some of these men into her home without knowing much, if anything, about them. For all she knows, the guy could be dangerous and harm her or her sons. At best, that's reckless behavior. And yes, I know that she was married to someone who did physically harm her, so getting to know someone first isn't always a good screen, but to just bring home randoms is a bad idea as well. There was a 48 Hours episode a few years back where the police were trying to determine whether a woman had slipped or was pushed, while she fell off the side of a cliff while hiking. I may be wrong, but I do think they were able to do the calculations as to where she would be in a situation where she slipped versus being pushed, even though the distance between the two was not huge.

    Yes. I think Celeste has made some questionable choices this season, and it's a huge red flag that she appears to be taking medication, blacking out and having lots of random sex. Having said that, she was terrorized by her now dead husband for what must have been years, which I think would leave almost anyone really messed up. I sympathize with her heavily over that. I can't with the courtroom scenes. Family court custody hearings are rarely, if ever, open to the public. While a parent's sex life could certainly be an issue that comes up during testimony, I've never heard of a judge in the 21st century allowing for such invasive questioning, much less opining on a parent's sex life in the manner this judge did. It's just too much.

    I find Gilead's whole baby regime to be baffling. It's just so strange to me that a society that is clearly insane to get healthy babies, purposefully takes steps to make it harder for a woman to give birth to a healthy baby. I mean, it isn't like the bizarro birthing ritual couldn't be done in a hospital with a medical team on standby should there be complications.

    S02.E05: Kill Me

    My recollection was that Celeste was pretty disheveled and bruised at the time Perry fell. I have to think the cops would notice that, and ask why she looked the way she did if this was all just a case where Perry accidentally fell and nothing else was going on. I'm not saying that would be enough for them to draw a conclusion, but it definitely would make me think the situation wasn't the innocent accident for which it was being portrayed as being.

    I don't think there was any mention of Jackie's daughter, or where she might be.

    S02.E05: Kill Me

    I think Mary Louise would have had to have been some kind of super villain to somehow set up a situation where the bully lashed out at Ziggy, and got the twins to come to Ziggy’s aid. I think she’s very manipulative and not above engaging in ethically questionable actions, but I don’t think she has the ability to set something like this up. Having said that, I totally agree that Maddie and the other moms need to learn about the concept of discretion. Regardless of whether the specific intent was to kill Perry, you can still be held criminally liable for his death. As to Mary Louise’s offer to Celeste regarding custody, I presume it was done to simply set out the overall parameters for an eventual settlement. This way Celeste and her attorney know that Mary Louise will not just be walking away, but they will also know that Mary Louise’s intent here is not to take full custody and shut Celeste out. I can’t imagine any scenario where Celeste would ever agree to seek addiction treatment, or otherwise take anger management courses (as that would be an implicit admission that Celeste had those problems), but it is not crazy (at least in a normal custody hearing) to imagine a scenario where Celeste agrees to some kind of limited custody for Mary Louise.

    Is Diane supposed to work at Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s? I thought she would have been more suspicious of such a ridiculously large purchase. I see they are also repeating the Sex and the City theme by dressing Frances in a style that could only be called: “Bag Lady Chic.” I think the best I can say for Divorce now is that I don’t mind watching, but I also don’t think it has any reason to continue existing as a show.

    All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    I can totally see Sam being like: "Unless you are my murderous ex, a victim of my disturbed son and/or someone with a connection to Tony or Luka, I have no time for you today."

    S02.E04: She Knows

    You know, in some ways, I agree, but in other ways, I think someone like Mary Louise gets away with her behavior by just skirting the line between polite and rude, and counting on the idea that she won't be directly confronted.

    Tales Of The City

    I'll add my two cents and say if you haven't seen it, it's well worth a viewing.

    I don't know. For example, I believe Switzerland maintains a US interests section at their Embassy in Iran, so it does perform middleman duties on behalf of various countries in real life. It's always been so odd to me that for a country where so much of daily life is focused on women having babies, or attempting to get pregnant, Gilead has purposefully shut down all avenues to pregnancy outside of two people having sex.

    S02.E03: The End of the World

    Eh, sometimes there aren't two sides. Sometimes there's just one side and the other side is really just all the people who want to imagine it can't happen to them, so they convince themselves that there was something special about this situation that can't be repeated in their own lives. I was struck by her mother's comment last episode asking what Bonnie had done this time to bring on her current mood.
