    Week 2: July 15, 2019-July 19, 2019

    I usually roll my eyes whenever someone writes, "I never watch [whatever], but I'm watching this [whatever]" (mostly, because I've seen posters use that same excuse numerous times on similarly themed threads). Anyway, I never watch these types of "love connection" shows because I find them appalling (cue rolling eyes). (I might have a little more respect for them if they were honest and said, "We're here to give attractive people a chance to fuck as many different partners as they want.") But I seem to have been sucked into this one. I blame it on the fact that the TV was set to CBS when I turned it on last Tuesday night, and because I was lazy and didn't want to change the channel, I started watching it, and then I had to watch on Wednesday because we wouldn't find out Kyra's decision until then. I think I got hooked when the announcer said something to the effect: "Let me summarize the conversation: 'Like like, likelikelike. Like? Like like.'" I still think this type of show is pretty appalling, but compared to clips I've seen on commercials, these people don't appear to be nasty, horrendous fame whores. Caro, with her baby voice and oversized fake breasts, is annoying, but most of the rest of the folks seem OK. I kind of get what the two new ladies say about Cashel (which is actually an Irish name that means "fortress"). While I do think he's attractive, he's also got that something else, where I could see women being drawn to him without knowing exactly why. Weston is either a guy who is supremely secure in his masculinity or he's gay (unlike Yamen, whose gay panic was repulsive). He was able to admit another man was attractive, he was mostly comfortable taking a soak with the grocery clerk kid, and he seems to be the girls' best friend. It'll be interesting to see if he has any kind of chemistry with the new girl he picked. I guess I'm in for a while at least.
  2. I bought the first three seasons on DVD. I agree, this was an underrated show.

    Season One: The Poll

    Leave it as it is. I've always found the trouble with separate episode threads (especially for sitcoms) is that they don't generate much content.

    House Hunters International

    And going strong at 50. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/jazzercise-fit-at-50/ I found him all three. The scarves were weird, but I felt sorry for him when he mentioned friends who had died, so they were probably on the younger side.

    Start TV - A network geared towards female audiences

    So Lifetime is no longer TV for women?

    Week 1: July 9, 2019-July 12, 2019

    This is apalling. A bunch of shallow -- but pretty -- morons. I wonder if "contestants" had to have a certain number of Instagram followers before they could be considered.
  7. I wonder what this will look like; the style of animation makes a big difference to me. Not a fan of the concept of "lawless teens," but how else do you sell a show to Nickelodeon? I have "Star Trek: The Animated Series" on DVD. The animation was bad, but the stories are generally good (some of them were penned by the original writers of "Star Trek").

    Mama's Family

    I hated the "Family" sketches on "The Carol Burnett Show," but I liked "Mama's Family."

    Happy!

    I don't do Netflix, so this season is probably it for me. I have to say, though, I was disappointed in this season. I hate to be Helen Lovejoy (from "The Simpsons"), but all I could think throughout so many episodes was "Won't somebody think of the children?!" There were so many gruesome parts or sexual beyond-innuendos with scenes with children in them that I couldn't enjoy the show -- whether it was Sonny on stage miming fellatio or fucking or bashing a guy's head in on stage or the kids breaking open the giant chocolate rabbit to see the skinned-alive guy. And what was the point of the skinned-alive guy? Just some rando that Smoothie decided to torture? I felt like there was no cohesive story this season. The Blue/Orcas story was pretty pointless. I hated all the Hallie stuff; I just kept feeling sorrier and sorrier for the little actress having to deal with all that disgusting stuff. I hated Happy losing his innocence. It really only picked up in the last few episodes, when Amanda finally got her groove back and roasts the aliens in the delivery room, and then she and Nick are a team. Then it was the delightful WTF-edness it had last season. Oh, I enjoyed Meloni's meaty ass at the end.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Or the new Snapple one, where it's obvious at least one of the apples ate another during a Donneresque calamity.
  11. Why would a network even submit a show it cancelled for an Emmy? If it wins, don't they look like morons for cancelling it? Having said that, I thought "Vietnam" was the best episode of the show. Mike and Lawrence and Eddie just killed it.
  12. Pratt became a fundamentalist douchebag who knocked Schwarzenegger up the duffington (to paraphrase from the PBS series "Upstart Crow").

    S06.E22: Crazy Hair and a Teeny Tiny Part of Canada

    So will Adam and Bonnie now permanently move into Bonnie & Christie's apartment? They're good with living with Bonnie's adult daughter who has the master bedroom? (Yes, I realize it's upstairs and not wheelchair accessible.) I didn't watch the show when the kids were on, so their absence doesn't bother me -- "out of sight, out of mind" and all that. I like Anna Faris, but they seemed to go out of their way to make Christie unlikable this season.

    In The Media: Fresh Off The Press

    And life sucks and you can't always get what you want. I'm sure millions of people can attest to that -- without having the comfort of hundreds and thousands of dollars. I really really hope there's a lot of gossip that comes out about this show when production starts again, although I feel sorry most for the kids that will have to work in that atmosphere.

    S04.E21: Sandra's Fight/S04.E22: Employee Appreciation Day

    After all, they are just following orders.
