  1. Totally? No way. But they probably could have done a lot more than they did, like maybe directly addressing the issue. That they have largely preferred to not openly talk about things doesn't matter because that's always been about protecting themselves and not talking about things clearly didn't protect Meghan and Archie. Not dealing with off-the-rails staff was another major issue that wasn't dealt with that should have been.
  2. Absolutely, and this is something that really annoys me: the narrative that has been spun these past 15-20 years that, oh, the royal family - especially the Queen - have learned from past mistakes. They know what went wrong with Diana and others and have changed and become more modern, if for nothing else then For The Boys. They sure haven't. They are marginally better about mental health issues - though I haven't seen anything to indicate that Meghan's mental health was given much consideration (the stress of becoming a member of the royal family + misogyny + racism + misogynoir) - but still drag their feet w/r/t racism and misogyny. Like, have they improved? Yes, but in the sense that I don't think Harry and Meghan's marriage would have been allowed due to her race 20-30 years ago. So they improved but still failed to do the bare minimum. Because of course while Meghan and co. were told to 'no comment' everything and there were a few public gestures, this family at the end of the day has managed to very successfully protect Prince Andrew for decades. Protect him from accusations of rape and sex trafficking, accusations that are obviously true. They could have cut Prince Andrew loose and used their considerable reach to shield Meghan and Archie from the unhinged racism they were, and still are, subjected to.
  3. The part about the preparations she made for her father is so sad. She really did everything she could to reach out to that man, take car of him, include him and he turned on her anyway.
  4. I thinks the Kensi and Deeks scenes are lacking spark. The whole show is, tbh. I liked D&K a lot in the beginning of their partnership, maybe the first three or four seasons, but I think their story, like the whole show, has run its course. Outside them having the kids they fought over so much or splitting up there's just nowhere to go. And everyone seems very...low energy in their scenes.
  5. Geroge, Louis, and Charlotte all scream Windsor to me. I don't see any Middleton traits in their appearance at all. Especially Charlotte.
  6. It seems like Syfy would've been a good option. Firefly premiered in '02 which is the same year Stargate SG1 switched to Syfy from Showtime, which required just as much if not more special effects. A year or two later is when Syfy picked up Battlestar Galactica, which also required a ton of effects and featured a Firefly shoutout in it's premiere. I always wondered if one of the reasons Whedon went with Fox was his long-running complaint that Buffy would've gotten more awards had it aired on a bigger network.
  7. Given where Whedon intended to take the show w/r/t Inara (sacrificial gang rape, yay!), it's probably for the best that the network did intervene (even if it wasn't for that reason).
  8. It's not out of the norm for many poc to have white friends that occassionally say or do racist things, but if Mulroney has always been like this? Yes, I'd be shocked. Meghan is herself biracial and racism is why she doesn't have much contact with her paternal family and one of the reasons why she and her family walked away from the BRF. It's much more believable to me that Mulroney has always been on her best behavior, especially since Meghan became involved with Harry.

    I don't think I ever made if oast season three because I have no idea what you're talking about and I'm very, very glad. WTF? They killed Jack? One of the best tv dads? I will never finish this series.
  10. I'd probably find those pictures of the Swedes cuter if I hadn't just watched Midsommar.
  11. Neither of the men are very attractive, Kate is lovely, but Jetsun is a knockout. Wow.
  12. This part of Meghan's address made me very emotional: “I remember the curfew and I remember rushing back home and on that drive home, seeing ash fall from the sky and smelling the smoke and seeing the smoke billow out of buildings, and seeing people run out of buildings carrying bags and looting," she recalled. “I remember seeing men in the back of a van just holding guns and rifles. I remember pulling up the house and seeing the tree, that had always been there, completely charred. And those memories don’t go away," Meghan continued. “I am sorry that in a way we have not gotten to the place where you deserve it to be.” Very impressed with her strength and grace in that video.
  13. She should, and she had a lot of anger about his death. But Eve is not a normal person having a normal response. She's been able to control her issue longer and better than others like her but this is a woman who dug a knife into her own leg while entranced by thoughts of Villanelle killing and knew exactly how she'd kill her husband if she wanted to. And those two incidents were just from the series premiere.
  14. Well, I'm calling bullshit on that being the truth about Kenny's death. Setting aside the fact that Kenny didn't scream as he fell, which is odd no matter how he died (and if he was dead before he hit the ground you'd expect that would have come out in an autopsy), he landed parallel to the building he was pushed from. And in the video of him and Konstantin he isn't hesitant or scared and in fact leaves the room before Konstantin of his own will. Now, if we're supposed to think that the scene of Kenny at his desk earing footsteps (after Eve has called him to accept his iffer of drinks) immediately proceeds his death, there's the issue of his phone. Kenny sets the phone down on his desk yet Eve finds it on a large table by the window a good ten to twelve feet away from Kenny's desk.
