  1. What kills me about all these photos posted of Colt is that he has actual potential to be attractive. Nice eyes, nice hair, and his features are angular enough that they would look good if he lost a few pounds. Like most of us, he would look attractive with a certain amount of weight loss. You can see it the most in the mirror selfie above, where he's taken actual care in his clothing. The potential is there. Now I'm off to wash my eyes with bleach.

    S04.E09: The Truth Comes Out

    Father Andrei was worth the price of admission. What a thoughtful, gracious man, although I absolutely reserve the right to change my mind on that one (I've already been burned by Andrei this season). Maybe the language barrier was a factor in his likeability, but he was perfectly gracious about everything and even called Andrei out for making conflict. His eating the burger with a knife and fork was funny. Having said all that, it was lunacy to pay $600 for 17 hours or whatever it was, unless of course production paid for it, in which case go for it. Jay is a moron with no concept of the long con. All he had to do was stick it out for a few years, play nice the whole time, then divorce, at which point he could go hog wild. Whether he screwed the girl in the barbershop or not, he must have really, really pissed off his boys to make them turn on him like that. Barbershop talk is usually sacrosanct.

    S04.E08: Nowhere to Run

    See, I dislike Libby's family - a LOT. I was Team Andrei all last season. But there was no need for Andrei to start whispering to Becky during the shower within earshot of Jenn and quite blatantly pulling her aside in the middle of things to complain. An adult would have waited until the party ended - or been civil and kept his mouth shut, especially since Libby wanted annoying-ass Jenn to be there. While I agree that it's good to keep the guests of honor in mind when making a guest list, did Andrei really expect a sister to leave out one of her siblings at a family gathering, particularly since every other sister was apparently there? Does Becky strike Andrei as the type of person who would do that? I think not. Andrei's original sin was taking Father Libby up on living in that house rent-free. For someone who bleats on about making it on his own and not wanting the family around, it was a spectacularly bad move to live off his father-in-law, no matter how short of a time. You have no idea how much I hate defending Family Elizabeth - they're obnoxious, smug assholes with no concept of boundaries.

    I thought the same thing at first, but I was pretty impressed with Tony and the co-owner, despite their offices (I suspect maybe it helps people feel less intimidated). They were cool as cucumbers and totally professional. If I had to bail out a loved one, Tony's demeanor would be very soothing. In other news, I hate Andrei for making me side with Family Libby. Christ Almighty, they grated on me all last season, but no way in hell would I let someone dictate who I would have in my home. He is slowly isolating Libby from her family and it's not fun to watch. Having said that, Jen is unbearably smug.

    I love that they brought the pastor back. I secretly hoped we'd see him again after last season. I hope he'll pop up again - in small doses, of course. When he gave the link to his church's donation page, I howled! And even the simple lines were funny. "Glenn okayed it. Hallelujah."

    S04.E01: After the Dust Settles

    Not sure how I feel about the development of Andrei and Elizabeth living in one of her dad's properties rent-free. There is NOTHING more expensive than free, especially with her band of dysfunctional, self-important, smothering family members. I'm a bit surprised at them accepting her dad's help at all. However, Elizabeth is as much the problem, especially if she's letting them run roughshod over them a la Chantel. And if he wanted to get away from their influence, living in his FIL's property is not the way to do it. Bad move, Andrei.

    Are we supposed to think Brittainy is a bad person for valuing her job and the company over a shallow ass friendship with a bunch of vapid, incompetent employees? Good Lord. Reagan's always been a bit of a backstabber, and she can go the way of Shannon as far as I'm concerned. Kristin is totally unwatchable when she's with her friends. I'm not sure why I watch this show when I actively dislike everyone on it, with the possible exception of Jay. Except that he willingly hangs out with this band of fools, so.

    S04.E17: Quinceañera

    Dina is the hottest woman on the show (closely followed by Amy in that gorgeous dress). Those khakis they always make her wear do her NO favors. Also love how Garrett lovingly drew her boobs. The gentleman doth protest too much. "My friend," my ass! A few of the party guests starred in "Real Women Have Curves" with America. It's nice to see her with them again. I wish Lupe Ontiveros was still around to play a relative of Amy's. Please stop pairing up Cheyenne with Mateo. It's tired, it's been done, and both of them play off straight man characters better.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Someone once said Derick resembled a dehydrated Aaron Rodgers. Or was it a tumble dried Aaron Rodgers? EDIT: Someone beat me to it. Jill's Easter dress or whatever was posted above was very cute. A little baggy on top, but she seems to like it that way. At least it doesn't have the unfortunate effect of making her look bigger. Clothes that make even small women look big should be burned for their poor craftsmanship.

    I thought this was the worst episode yet. I've had enough of Kristin's screaming with her friends. I'm glad everyone gets along (with the possible exception of her and Jay), but I don't want to see it on my screen. More Kaylee and less Matt, please. She was supposed to be the show's shit-stirrer, but all I've seen so far is competence and the ability to absorb the constant shit talking with class. What was the explanation given for why they weren't in the main house? I was confused at that. Of COURSE Colby is a singer. It wouldn't be a Nashville show without a couple of nobodies trying to sing. I would like to tell you I enjoyed her song, but I could not understand a single word.

    Kristin - and Brittainy, to an extent - is very dismissive of her employees. On the one hand, I can see why. Most of them are gossipy, clique-y idiots who can't fill a box properly. And who cares if they don't like Kaylee? And they're in their early twenties, an age where you're more sensitive and prone to drama. But on the other hand, employees need to be feel that they're being heard, that they're valuable, etc. And being on the floor and doing the work means they have insight that the higher-ups don't. Example #1 is when Brittainy said to shipping that they needed to do the shipping manual ASAP, because "taking a photo doesn't take long." On the one hand, she's right. But on the other, it's dismissive of the work it actually does take to put a manual together. It's a delicate balance between holding an employee's hand and acknowledging their efforts. And nobody in management on this show seems to realize that. It's clear that the drama necessary for a reality show is harming day-to-day operations. Matt should have been out the door in a real business, but since he brings drama for the show, he stays.

    I really can't take any more of Kelly and Kristin's constant screaming laughter in their interviews. Also the whole stilted convo with that guy was so forced, cringey, and fake. Why must we have fake ass storylines featuring Kelly, the one person who has nothing to do with the business? Of COURSE he was an actor/model. Probably hired a la Wirth to pretend he gives a damn. I can't stand Kelly's vapid ass, but even I felt bad at her not being able to get a word in edgewise. Colby only apologized to Kaylee because she got called out. Guarantee that if Kristin hadn't put the smackdown on her, she would have continued talking shit behind Kaylee's back and encouraging the other employees to do it too. She's only sorry to have been called out and seen as not nice. Can you imagine being retired at 35? I'd go nuts continuously fixing up the house. That pasta Kristin made looked SO good.

    Pretty romantic episode all around. I still ship Dina and Garrett. Glenn stepping down as manager sets up the rest of the season's conflicts nicely. I'm not sure I want to see him as regular floor staff. I love that Sandra buying gifts for herself a few seasons back has come full circle. Jerry showing up in disguise at the end was hilarious.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    For REAL. I grew up in southern California and about 10 years ago, the family and I booked it out of state because of the insane prices, taxes, housing costs, etc., and it's only getting worse. It is really no joke. You need to be making a very, very good living to live well in California, to say nothing of Los Angeles. Hope they've saved that show money. California is surprisingly pretty conservative in a lot of areas, but LA, not so much. Anything that gets them further out of their bigot bubble is a good thing.

    I'm waving the flag aboard Team Kaylee. As I've said before, I've had a boss I really disliked and was, frankly, scared of. You know what I did? I kept a smile on my face, found a new job and peaced out. She never know how I really felt. I hate the endless cliques and passive aggressive faces from the UJ staff. Colby can go the way of Shannon as far as I'm concerned. I really can't with incompetent ass people refusing to own their own mistakes. Brittainy seems to be as much of a hard ass as Kaylee, yet the staff seems to like her. I wonder why that is. I have a theory or two. They claim Kaylee doesn't know anything about shipping, but frankly, based on their piss poor results, none of the people in shipping know anything. I will say it's a major fail not telling the shipping people that Kaylee was in charge for that day. Isn't it convenient that Kristin is always out of town when the store is busiest or operations are the most complicated?
