    I’m so relieved for Vincent! Some redemption for last year’s Worlds.

    I didn’t hate the free dance as much as some of their programs, and it’s way better than that rhythm dance. At least they weren’t trying to be sexy in the free dance. Did some of the rules about ice dance lifts change? They had two different lifts where his arms were extended over his head. It also looks like they do the same stationary lift in the rhythm dance and free dance. I know teams reuse lifts from past seasons, but I’ve never noticed the same lifts in both programs in the same year.

    I’m definitely biased because I really dislike them already, but that was really bad.
  4. What was that? There were funny moments here and there, but that was way too different than a normal episode for me. I liked the hula hooping. I like that Thierry Henry appears to be Beard’s nemesis. I liked the reveal that the guy was really just chasing Beard to give back his wallet. But overall, I missed everyone! The cast’s chemistry is one of the show’s best assets, and I never want to see another episode where the cast doesn’t interact at all except for 10 seconds at the end.
  5. I cracked up at Ted’s speech about the size of pitch being the same, and everyone having to tell him he was wrong. That speech worked in Hoosiers! I wish they hadn’t made Ted’s character a dad when they created the show. We know Ted’s a good guy who loves his son, but in an episode about bad fathers it made me sad that his kid is across the world and hardly ever sees his dad.
  6. That’s where I fall on this. I’d probably momentarily side eye that age difference in real life, but then realize that they’re both adults who clearly like each other and make each other happy. So good for them! But being someone’s boss makes this so wrong. I had coworkers who did this in real life, and lives and careers were ruined. They did a similar job, but he was technically her supervisor. It was a disaster. It would be so much worse with a power dynamic like the one between Rebecca and Sam.
  7. I know! Did they originally plan it that way? It would have been perfect!

    Gymnastics

    How are all these gymnasts going to college? I don’t just mean how busy it is to be a student and gymnast. Suni is doing DWTS while at Auburn. Grace and Jade are at Utah and Oregon State respectively, while also doing the GOAT tour. How are they doing it, logistically?Are they just flying back and forth across the country all the time? Do they have incredibly understanding professors? Is Suni’s partner going back and forth to Alabama with her? I’m so intrigued by this!
  9. Holt turning on the charm as a sexy repairman was the best. Jake’s reactions were perfect too. I don’t believe that Holt wouldn’t know Mac’s name, but I do think it’s cute he calls him “Little Guy.” My only complaint about the vow renewal is that there should have been a balloon arch! Otherwise, it was perfect! In the first episode it bothered me that Charles would act like his family isn’t really his family if they aren’t related by blood. He has an adopted son! I kept waiting for him to realize of course he’s still a Boyle, just like Nikolaj is a Boyle. But instead they went with t

    I feel like Vincent should be able to get top 7, but he should have been able to make the free skate at Worlds last year and look how that turned out. I like Vincent, and I want him to go to the Olympics again. Who knows how Grand Prix season will play out, but as of right now I don’t think he’ll make the Olympics if it’s only a two man team. He better bring it at Nebelhorn.

    CODA (2021)

    It also really bothered me how helpless Ruby’s parents seemed. That’s not a universal experience for deaf people. Are deaf people discriminated against? Obviously. Can deaf adults take care of themselves without relying on their underage children? Yes, most can and do! It wasn’t deafness keeping Ruby’s parents from taking care of themselves. Legally, a court has to provide an interpreter, and I think most deaf people know that. But Ruby’s dad and brother just decided to make her do it. Little things like that took me out of the movie. Also, there’s no way Ruby would get into Berklee .

    CODA (2021)

    It was beautifully done, wonderfully acted, with an interesting story, but I didn’t like it. I really wanted to, but I just found the characters so unlikeable. The dad’s whole description of his jock itch was supposed to be funny, but I just felt mortified on behalf of Ruby. No dad should be expecting his teenage daughter to talk to his doctor in graphic detail about his balls. I don’t find it endearing for a brother to call his sister a “twat waffle.” The big character growth is that they…let her go to college. That’s an incredibly low bar. I expected so much more from this movie.

    This should be a super competitive NCAA year!
  14. It was Craig Melvin. He’s one of cohosts of the Today Show. He definitely didn’t make that sushi. He probably just grabbed it off the craft table.
  15. But now you’ve made me hope for a crossover, or at least a musical episode of Ted Lasso.
