    S03.E08: Now Am Found

    As I was half asleep in bed this morning, I thought "OH My GOD, what if Julie Purcell is the documentarian???" I obviously hadn't watched the episode yet, And yes, that would have been insane, but possibly more interesting than the actual finale.
  2. I'm a fan of Jeremy Saulnier's movies, so I was excited when I learned he was attached to TD as a director. It's definitely too bad he's only doing 2 eps. But I'm still looking forward to seeing where the rest of the season goes.

    S05.E00: Bandersnatch

    Agreed. I'm a big BM fan, but me and my wife both got bored with it pretty quickly. Aside from the gimmick, the story was just a bunch of nonsense. We gave up after devoting about an hour to it.

    S07 E21 Sheila & Rich Dollaz

    I'm always surprised at how readily people send nude pics to people they don't know. Even if the person she was talking to was actually "Rich Dollaz," those pics could be distributed anywhere around the world at any moment. I'm married, and I wouldn't even send my wife nude pics.

    Jersey Shore

    Just got around to last week's ep. My DVR somehow missed the ep where Deena was "kidnapped," but I was able to catch up pretty fast. I agree that the fight was likely staged, especially since the jerk's "friend" they talked to the second night was wearing the same shirt in both appearances. Both scenes shot in the same night, perhaps? Fake or not, I would not want to fight Ronnie. He's a hothead with anger issues, and he's doesn't care if he goes to jail.

    S07 E19 Mike & Joey

    Mike was the worst. And my underwear provides more coverage than his "shorts" did. I'm guessing he'll be back in Connecticut before too long.

    Jersey Shore

    Agreed - it seems like this "family vacation" thing will go on forever. When it debuted, my first thought was "who's gonna watch this? Nobody cares!" But sadly, I have watched all of it. It's crazy how much work Snooki continues to get. I saw where she's now co-hosting some show about bad tattoos or something. And I'm sure Mike will get a post-prison show. Aside from Snooki (and Pauly D), what does the rest of the cast do when they're not doing the show? I know Jenni and Deena have families, but, what the hell do Ronnie and Vinny do with their down time? Especially Ronnie. I can't really see him being employable anywhere.

    I promise you no one has ever called that woman "Jewish Barbie." Regarding Ronnie's potential hookup with her, I don't see why the rest of the gang was so distraught over it. Would it really matter if he hooked up with her (or anyone else)? It's not like his relationship can get much worse.

    Jersey Shore

    This is a pretty standard wedding registry practice. People register for gifts with a wide range of price points so friends/family will have a choice in how much they'd like to spend. It's not about "need." And I'm sure Sitch has some friends with money (like the rest of the cast, for example) that will want to buy them something extravagant.

    Has anyone noticed how in the last couple episodes, Mike has been randomly adding an "s" to the end of words? It's so weird. Is it some inside joke we aren't aware of? I've been joking with my wife that I want a "Living My Best Life" hat to wear when I'm eating a big meal.

    S08.E13: Do Not Send Us Astray

    Loaded up this ep on the TiVo, realized it was 2 hrs, and said "F this. I'm done." I don't even care that it wasn't really 2 hrs of show. I'm still done.

    S07.E10: Dylan & Savenia

    I think a lot of these people are fine with what they have, for the most part. Texting/talking constantly is their entertainment, and if they try to start something in person, all that could go away. On a smaller scale, I've had friends who have met someone, gotten their number, then had a text relationship with them for a couple months. When they finally went on a date, it all crumbled pretty quickly. This show has definitely gotten worse over time, but I will apparently be watching till the bitter end.

    Ugly Delicious

    The scene where he ordered Domino's cracked me up. I wondered if the driver thought it was weird that he was delivering pizza to a pizza restaurant. But I do love David's enthusiasm for certain fast food items. I've heard him praise Chicken McNuggets, and I couldn't agree more. They're delicious. And I say that as someone who is relatively snobby about food and dining. Haven't watched the other eps yet, but I'm planning on diving back in tonight.
  14. I'm surprised they didn't include a brief segment at the beginning of ep. 1 describing their backgrounds and why they're knowledgeable in their field. Unless I'm remembering wrong, we got none of that.
  15. I didn't like that segment either. I get what they were trying to do, but it didn't play well at all. Nor did the MAGA hat. Sorry, but that would have made me walk. The straight guy from that ep (Cory?) reminded me of Kenny Powers. Even sounded a bit like him.
