  1. Both Meghan and Joy have taken off more time during the pandemic.
  2. Ana's on! Ana's on! Meghan's gone and Ana's on! It's almost like a song.
  3. Forget Wuhan. That might be the true disease origin, right there. Shudder. Puck. I had managed to forget about Puck. How about being holed up with Ben Domenech AND Meghan McCain? I do believe it. She nearly died of pneumonia and sepsis last year. Aside from her age, she's a particular risk because of her history. She probably got a house call. Would 64-year-old random woman (black or white or otherwise) be ABLE to see their doctor right now (without money or influence of some sort)? Probably not, but what doctor would want to be the person who refused to see Famous Patient who almost died last year?
  4. Thank you for both answers. Ralph's son and the Peterson brother make sense. The "Who's Terry" thing -- since that's what it was supposed to be -- was not well-placed. Thank you! I hope I didn't come across as trying to call you out or anything. I get confused and try to err on the side of caution, too.
  5. @Cheezwiz my husband and I had the same conversation last night about King's problem sticking his landings. The recent It film adaptation made light of this as well. There's something about his work (and/or how screenwriters and directors approach it) which makes that problem bigger on the screen than it is on the page, too. Just curious - why did you hide a hypothetical that did not happen behind a spoiler tag? I don't want to run afoul of the forum rules (of which I've been a member since the TWoP exodus to Previously.TV, but tend not to post too much about primetime, scripted series). That's how we felt. I enjoyed the series as a whole, but found the finale a big letdown, and I didn't like Holly's scratch. If the thing is dead, and they want to continue the series, let it be a new case every season. I didn't recognize the boys either. I wondered if they were Claude's relatives who were buried in the old cave-in. Holly's "Who's Terry?" seemed ridiculous. Holly presented her theory to Terry's widow, who flipped out in front of her. Also though, did Ralph really kill the monster? I kind of thought he said it wasn't killable right before he smashed in its face.
  6. I like Gavin Newsom. Am I imagining things, or didn't he used to be married to Don Jr's girlfriend, Kimberly Gargoyle? How? I am trying hard to keep this post centered on Sunny's discussion of Kamala versus Amy. Senator Klobuchar has been asked about her prosecutorial record. She was in the last debate and since. However, imo she hasn't been held to account for it to the same extent Senator Harris was. The reception to Harris's candidacy was huge and enthusiastic. Then "Kamala is a cop" became a thing on social media. To some extent it was pushed by trolls, and I'll avoid getting into off-topic politics by leaving out which candidate's supporters fueled that. The problem is, the "Kamala is a cop" sentiment caught on enough to dampen some of the initial enthusiasm for Harris. It also became An Issue on which the media pressed her and pressed her, like the way they pressed Senator Warren for how she'll pay for Medicare-for-All more than they've pressed Senator Sanders. Nobody's pressed Amy on her cop-ness the way they pressed Kamala. So, as to Sunny's comments, I think she's missing a point or two. I kind of also feel like when she says "held to account" she really means: "Will it cost Amy supporters the way it cost Kamala?" The meme was pushed as if it were black voters holding Kamala's prosecutor past against her. I don't think Amy has a ton of support from black people to begin with, so how much will "Amy is a cop" cost her with centrist, middle-aged white Democrats? I don't think much. That said, it's frustrating when there are two candidates with same issue, and the candidate of color is treated one way, while the white one is treated another way, just as it's frustrating when there are two candidates with the same issue and the woman treated one way and man is treated another. So, I empathize with Sunny's question, but I don't think she should hold her breath until Amy is treated the same is Kamala. It's not fair. It just is what it is. Signed, Like Pete Buttigieg, Cory Booker Is a Rhodes Scholar, But Only Pete Gets Praised for It ***** Not peed. Same hose. Different output.
  7. I won't miss Abby a bit. I think I'd like her as a neighbor, but I've had it with her forced, false equivalencies. Of course I'd take three of her as a regular presence, if it meant getting rid of the other Daughter. I agree Abby can't wait to get out of there, but I disagree with your take on that moment between her and Sunny. Abby nodded at her, and had a very knowing look in her eyes. It gave me the feeling that Sunny's probably been something of a confidante for Abby, as things with Meghan grew strained. Also, Abby did say something in response, but softly, and someone (I think Joy) not on camera was talking at the same time, so it was hard to hear. I think she said, "I appreciate it too." There was no pause though, and Abby did reciprocate in some fashion. Yeah, what the hell is going on with that eyeshadow? It matches her pants and shoes, but it is ugly, does her pretty face no favors, and in no way works with her top.
  8. No matter why they broke up, the whole thing feels very Kevinish. I found this hilariously worded article on the impending divorce (bolded for emphasis): https://thenewstrace.com/justin-hartley-files-for-divorce-from-chrishell-stause/9609/ That's obviously the definitive word on that.
  9. A person named Adam Sandler has donated to Trump. It's not that Adam Sandler, but he gets blamed (or praised) for it, just the same. The famous Adam Sandler keeps his politics (if he has any) private, which could also be why Meghan likes him. Found it. Thank you.
  10. How far in did Abby say that (the thing about growing up political)? I'm just watching now, but they talked over each other so much during the first segment, I stopped listening (I'm working on something else at the same time). I've only watched the first 10 minutes. Do I have to rewind, or is it still to come? Never mind. I found it. At about 6 minutes, when they were talking about whether Bolton would cover for Trump or come clean, Abby said: "Well, I've also been in -- politics was my upbringing, too. And a lot of people have been around politics or know politics. Whether you have family there or not, this show's about opinions." She went on to say she thinks that he's knows a lot, and that he wants people to know what is going on in the WH. Ugh. She even lies down, while she's taking a stand.
  11. I had no desire for there to be a fifth season, but I can't stand when disgruntled fans push for or celebrate cancelation. If a person stops watching, the show is canceled for them. A show cancelation puts a lot of people out of work and disappoints the fans who want to keep watching. I'm having a little trouble following what you mean in the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs I quoted above. How did the showrunner give fans a way to continue in in the fanfic world (at least any new way that didn't exist prior to season 4)? Also, what Wikipedia article are you talking about -- the one for the series, the season, the character or something else? Finally, what is MAM? EDIT: Oh wait, it is "Marshmallows Against Misogyny." Yeah. No they're not. The documentary quote for which I provided a screenshot above didn't even just talk about destroying the show. It talked about destroying "him," i.e. Rob Thomas. It was revolting. I was going to say, "Me too," but maybe we're screwed up enough without adding them to the mix.
  12. There's a Meghan vs. Joy one, too. I'm not all the way through it yet, but watching it and the Meghan vs. Whoopi one, makes me wish The View had some equivalent of TWoP's old "don't talk about the boards on the boards" rule. Meghan would be perpetually suspended. There's also a Meghan vs. Audience one: Don't be like me. Do not watch all three in a row. You will want to hit someone when you're done, and you shouldn't hit people. a;sldkf;alsdkfj;alksdjf
  13. I hope this is the correct place to post this. Fans who were unhappy with Veronica Mars season four participated in/made a short documentary. It's called, Broken Fandom: Veronica Mars. It was spearheaded by whoever runs the Twitter account VMDocumentary20, which released it on Christmas Eve. Here it is on YouTube. I watched (it's about a half hour long), but even though I was dissatisfied with VM s4 and don't really care whether there is a fifth season, I found it really off-putting. A total of four fans (I think) participated on camera. In addition, it features tweets (or texts or parts of emails -- some text-based stuff) from other fans. I think it would have benefitted from waiting until they got more fans to take part and/or trying to find some fans who would talk on camera, in a group. This was just like a bunch of extended talking-head-segments (like the confessionals on The Office). One fan, identified as "Dr Lightning" made a text contribution which reads: I mean, "We're going to band together to destroy him now"??? WTF? That's just sick. Also, at least one or two of the text submissions made claims that the VM fandom had always been drama-free, and free from shipper b.s. (my phrasing). I've made good friends in the VM fandom, but that's not at all true. I wish I hadn't watched it. If anyone else does, I'd be interested in your thoughts.
  14. I missed the first couple of minutes, because the local weather broke in. I found it online, in case anyone else wants to watch. It will probably get deleted soon, but it's here, while it lasts. Meghan is so effing phony with her, "But I'm hyper-conservative" nonsense. What happened yesterday had nothing to do with her ideology.
