    The Fix (2019)

    I don't think Riv (still want to call him "Riley" from his Buffy days) planted the devices. I think either Maya's stalker did it (or whoever is trying to make Maya think she has a stalker), or Buck Neal (Robert Wisdom), Ezra's fixer.

    The Fix (2019)

    I know this is an old comment, but I had to respond, because that scene from the pilot drove me nuts! It's not so much the money for me. Maybe she inherited the house in the first place or something and money just isn't an issue. I more minded they way they portrayed her leaving it behind. They were so intent on portraying Maya as someone who left in such a hurry that she didn't even tell her best friend, that they screwed the pooch on the house. Have a day player play a caretaker who checked on the place and lets her back in. It was a lazy way to (over-)emphasize the point that she got out of dodge ASAP. That it's personal revenge fic is my favorite part. This is the Mary-Sue-ing of all Mary Sues and I love how blatant it is. When Gabe clocked Sevvy with that shovel, it just so much felt like Marcia's Revenge. I think both of these are right. I think the title is supposed to bring to mind both uses of "fix." More speculation: Oh, I like that theory! My money has been on Ezra, but now I'm starting to eyeball Matthew Collier. He did too much lying this week (to cover up that Loni was the mole). Now, he could just be concerned about his political career, but I don't think it would hurt the prosecution to out a traitor on their team before any charges were filed. After all, Loni was "fixing" it for the defense, not the DA. Now I'm starting to wonder if Ezra and Matthew are in on it together. Well, people fall all over people who are rich and famous, even when they're not pretty. Donald Trump has been married three times. Larry King has been married 79 times. While I think Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje does a great job playing angry and scary (see his character on Lost), I also think he's handsome. He started off as a model in Milan. I did, and I loved it. I kept having a mental slip on Mr. Eko's brother's name -- thinking it is also Sevvy, before I remember it's Yemi. I don't think this show will be back next year, which is too bad. The ratings just aren't good. It's the third lowest scripted series on ABC. I like the cast. I like that the show has an obvious female lead. I think they could easily make it an anthology, with a new crime each season. I wonder if, thanks to the first season of American Crime Story on FX, if people have had their fix of OJ-related stuff for a while.

    Small Talk: Viewers Like You

    https://www.instagram.com/p/Bv4SleLlj0_/ (<-- Bitsy's Instagram post) The scripture you quoted didn't get included in the quote, but that's basically it. Bitsy was saying it was a spiritual battle for her, rather than a physical one. Which? No shit, Sherlock (Bitsy, not you, suomi.) Cursing isn't a physical battle. It's a mental one.

    Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

    I don't think it is contrived, but I think it is way overdone. Mika needs to control herself. I like Buttigieg a lot, but listening to Mika's constant fangirling is actually turning me off. I have to remember it's not his (or any candidate's) fault that Mika sucks at her job. The reason I don't feel it is contrived is that Mika is prone to be a fickle fangirl. Last cycle, all she talked about (when she wasn't giving Trump a verbal tongue bath) was Elizabeth Warren (whom I also like, btw), even though Warren wasn't running. I think there are miles between Warren and Buttigieg, so I find it weird that this woman who couldn't shut up about someone who wasn't running last time barely mentions her this time. I don't think Mika has shown herself to have much ideological consistency. She is a flavor-of-the-week person. How one moves from being the only person on this show to respect the Occupy movement, to supporting Warren, to positively fawning over Buttigieg is beyond me. She paid Bernie Sanders some lip service today, and I thought that was contrived. Like someone showed her his poll and fundraising numbers and so she decided she likes him for the day. She's a shell and a shill. So is there a Go-Fund-Me for that worthwhile project? I think Buttigieg so far has shown himself to have a quiet strength. I like him. That said, he didn't come out publicly until 2015. So he was a gay man in Indiana, but he wasn't dealing with the public reality of that until more recently. That said, someone wondered if Buttigieg would hold his own against Putin and Kim Jong Un. Buttigieg was a Navy Intelligence officer. I think he'd be okay. It's stunning, isn't it? I don't even really understand how she thinks this is at all the job. She's acting like a PR flack/cheerleader. In the early days of Morning Joe, I appreciated that the hosts and the table brought their opinions to the discussion. Mika's behavior this time out is something apart from that. Yup. Although, I guess that's better than Morning Trump.

    The View in the Media

    It looks like the skit that aired might have cut out at least one bit that was written, because in one of the photos from NBC, "Abby" is holding up the Ladies Who Punch book.

    I was just coming to post that. Kate didn't do a great job with Joy either (which surprised me, because I love her), but it was still pretty funny. Here's the full video on NBC, if anyone has trouble with the YouTube version. https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/the-view-jenny-mccarthy-on-vaccines/3939459

    Hosts That Could've Been

    If I forget about Jenny's checkered history on vaccinations, I liked her better than Abby. She was a pop culture cast, not a political cast. Abby isn't supposed to be vapid, but is. Jenny was supposed to be vapid. I'd trade in either Abby or Meghan for Jenny. I love Sara. Her new show sucks eggs. I don't ever see what people sees with the Sunny/Whoopi relationship. I think Whoopi likes Sunny, and I don't think she mistreats her. Whoopi isn't good at explaining things off the cuff. She's spent too much time as the kind of entertainer who didn't have to hone that skill. She's not a good moderator these days, but I don't think she's awful (or even a little off) to Sunny. I just think that's their vibe. She and Michael Strahan got their own show. Some people think it was because of Meghan. I just think the network removed her from slot A and put her into slot B. It probably wasn't difficult to leave because of Meghan, however.

    Hosts That Could've Been

    I think I'd dislike Rachel more. I have to go have an emergency lobotomy now. I think Padma's breathy voice would drive me out of my mind (but she's better than either one of the above nitwits). I don't know if Brooke has enough oomph, but I'd rather have her than the above nitwits. I'd love to have Yvette Nicole Brown. I think she's really done herself proud when she's appeared on this show, but she's so talented, I'm not sure The View wouldn't be a waste of her time and gifts.

    The thing is, Assange is charged with conspiracy to hack into a Pentagon computer. If I understand it correctly, specifically, it is alleged Assange helped Manning hack the password(s) for (an)other account(s) so she could steal info, without the downloads being tied to her account. See item #7. I knew this by the time I saw Joy's clarification, so I wasn't sure why the producers made her say that on the air. If I was already seeing the indictment online, I'm not sure why the ABC News division wasn't. It's disgraceful the producers made one of their co-hosts issue what amounts to a false correction.

    Hosts That Could've Been

    Tara always rubs me the wrong way. That said, I totally missed the memo on Ana (i.e. didn't dislike her, but couldn't figure out why everyone loved her) before this season (or maybe late last season), and now I adore her, so maybe Tara is the way to go. Please God, no. She's a charlatan. She's a snake oil sales woman. She's phonier than Meghan McCain, but has more self-control, so she would fool more people. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'd rather stick with the devil we know.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    Oh, I thought this was the Meghan McCain thread.

    Ugh. Dear View, if I wanted to watch Shark Tank, I would watch Shark Tank. Thank you, @falltime.

    Is it the Shark Tank people the whole hour? I'm about halfway through, but I have no interest in them (or today's show, apparently).

    "The View": Week Of 4/8/2019

    Sometimes, when they have celebrity guests, the full panel isn't present, which I always think is weird. You're probably right, Blondie. And while I would have loved to see that play out on national TV, from the producers' perspective, it was probably the correct (if way less fun) call. Yeah. No. I don't really understand how the goal posts keep shifting here. Joy was trying to say that maybe the new DHS guy has some good ideas (I have no idea if he does). I suppose I can link the clip yet again. Meghan talked for nearly a minute and a half straight, which doesn't sound like a long time, but when you consider there are 5 co-hosts, and one episode minus commercials is usually around only 40 minutes long, AND that was a "VIEW YOUR DEAL" day, 1:20 amounts to a filibuster, and Meghan had already completed hers. Meghan was being rude, despite the fact that Joy wasn't asking her to defend a thing about Trump or his administration. Joy was saying, Hey this one thing might not be as hellish as all the other evil afoot. Joy wasn't even arguing against the points Meghan had made about immigration being central pillar of Trump's appeal to his base. Everyone from the biggest Trump hater to the biggest Trump lover (okay, that's a tie between Pence and Trump) knows that. We can keep making this a, "Yeah, but Joy hates Trump," conversation, but everyone from the worst Joy hater to the biggest Joy lover already knows that. Meghan doesn't like Trump either. Meghan haters and Meghan lovers know that, too. Some people (I am one) think Meghan defends Trump and/or his policies when she feels it will benefit the country of one that is Meghan McCain. On the day that Meghan just acted like an unprofessional brat (this time, this week, this Monday -- it's sad how we have to narrow that down), she did so, because Meghan is an unprofessional brat. Also: abused wives don't deserve to be hit, and if a woman wears a short skirt, she's not asking to be raped. Joy was the recipient of Meghan's bad behavior, not the cause of it.

    I agree Chelsea wouldn't do that, except during her appearances on the imaginary show in my head.
