    Best Baker In America

    Which makes his hicksterisms seem even more fake and that includes his shitty grammar. Is he really unschooled or is it all a massive put on for his base? Makes Paula Deen sound sophisticated. Well, maybe not quite that. If the two of them ever got together, our ears would bleed. Capt. Cornpone's Cringeworthy MadLibs for Faux Hicksters: Whooie, honey, I'm as happy as a/an [animal] [verb]ing on/with/in a/an [common noun]. On a positive note: I really loved Joshua's Cherry Blossom cake and glad it won. I'm sure we'll be seeing knock-offs around here (DC) during our next Cherry Blossom Festival. I look forward to it! As for Marian, I'll take flavor over two tasteless layers any day. I guess she just didn't meet the challenge. Darn.

    I think I've come up with why Jason bugs me so much, besides the obvious cornpone. He may be an excellent baker, but his poor grammar and ridiculous faux-hick persona make him seem very unprofessional. He may be just a "home cook," that's fine, but he's getting paid to judge. Don't act like you just "crawlt outa tha haystack" and are calling far more competent, seasoned professionals (for the most part) "honey" and demeaning them with the lame-ass hick schtick. It's the lack of professionalism that gets me. Time to visit HR.

    What are...spoilers?

    Finally, it's safe to come back in the water!

    Abby's

    @SoMuchTV said: No problem. For some ex-Marines (and yes, you can say that too, or not, as you wish), they do feel that way. I don't. I was, it was a long time ago, I'm not anymore. It wasn't all sunshine and roses, especially for women, and some of us would rather put the past far behind us and move on. Two years' service doesn't define my being. I'm prouder of my work with the Peace movement over the years. That said, I started watching this for Natalie Morales (1) playing a former Marine (2). It's a bust. Bad writing, bad concept, no surprise it's cancelled.

    Yes. All the time.

    A.P. Bio

    Why wouldn’t they? They paid for the season. Yes, shows don’t always air all their episodes but more and more networks are showing all the eps particularly when it’s a complete season. Exactly. Plus, it wasn't outright cancelled in the second season, it just wasn't picked up for a third. Nothing next week due to the Stanley Cup, but we get the last two eps on 6/13.

    Abby's was cancelled today, along with two other shows.

    Cancelled. https://deadline.com/2019/05/abbys-the-village-the-enemy-within-canceled-nbc-aone-season-1202607291/ Only surprise is how long they took to do it.

    What We Do In The Shadows

    And Nandor just pushed his last button. Dun, dun, dun. I love that he is 1% Van Helsing. That is beyond fun! Now I can hardly wait for next season.

    The Name of the Rose

    Eight episodes may be too many. I don't think this will appeal to many who aren't already fans of the book and/or movie, but I can hope. I'm in for now, but will probably watch On Demand. We only get standard resolution for Sundance live, but OD is HD! Go figure. Plus, over two hours starting at 10 pm is a lot to ask for. I found the commercials beyond jarring! More than usual, not sure why. There seems to be a ton of them that just rudely rip you right out of the story. OK, acting is decent. Sets/production values are good. Cinematography, nice. Not crazy about all the extra characters and battles they've thrown in to possibly keep it "interesting." Timelines and flashbacks are all over the place. Will continue to give it a chance even though there will probably be few, if any, surprises for me. LA Times had the best one. Generally, the reviews are not that great. Not bad, but not great. The movie didn't get good reviews either and was a box office bust. Still it's a favorite of mine. Think I'll go watch that again. Or maybe just reread the book.

    Eight. They're running two per week.

    Seems Capt Cornpone dialed back the hick-isms this week. There were only 1 or 2 by my count. Perhaps they're editing them out? He didn't get a lot of coverage, either. Seems the CC question has been raised before. Article from 2017 asks "Is Food Network Star’s Jason Smith qualified to judge professional bakers?" I say "f* no!" There are typically gaps in the knowledge base of the self-taught with no professional experience in any field. He may be a good baker, but he's no Paul Hollywood (Hmm. Maybe that's why they paired him with Marcella. No danger of scandal!). At any rate, he should feel ashamed to pass judgement on these contestants. It probably wouldn't be as grating if he didn't slather hick shtick on top of it. I'd find it demeaning and offensive were I a competitor.

    When Calls The Heart

    The hallmark of Hallmark characters. It never fails. First season: spunky, feisty, opinionated, strong(ish) woman. Next season: wishy-washy, simpering doormat.

    The Name of the Rose

    I can hardly wait. One of my favorite books and movies. Looks like a pretty damn good cast, too. I am cautiously optimistic.

    Worst Cooks In America

    Tyler saying, "My soul hurts." was the best part of the show. I feel the same way just watching! I can understand these folks don't cook, but they eat. I'm sure most of them, as celebrities, have eaten nice food somewhere along the way. Some of the worst palates ever! Here's another thing: all of them go into major tailspins over the smallest things. Do they act this way when they're working? Really? Because I'd never hire any of them in any capacity after seeing this hot mess. Totally unprofessional. Keep it on an even keel, please. Yikes! I was surprised when Anne dinged Tonya, but not surprised when no one left. Gives them an even number next week and they'll probably kick off two.
