    Kevin should be a part of the Franco is Now Drew story. I really hope they don't backburner Lindstrom again. I've really enjoyed him the last couple of years.

    GH In The News: The PC Press Club

    I'm going to unabashedly fangirl over MEK. Squeeeeeeee! He was my first soap crush. I cried when he fell off that damn bridge and "died." Until it comes to pass that they've messed up his part and story, I'm going to think happy thoughts and be, for the moment, glad to see him.

    It has occurred to me that we, the audience, have never met Drew. This is the first time. BM as Drew was always just someone accepting the words of others that he was not Jason, and then changing the circle of people he interacted with (which immediately made him a better person since he was now free of CarSon.) He took the name Drew because he came to accept what he was being told as truth. But it's not something he ever actually lived. He never did not have Jason's memories. Even when he was Amnesia Jake, all of that was layered on top of what was supposed to be Jason. Even the new memories made with Kim and Oscar had Jason's past as a foundation. So, if this was really the story, this is a totally new person to us and to everyone but Kim and the now defunct Franco (the only person to know him for a short while as a child.) Oh, and Shiloh. I feel bad for Scott. He just lost Lee and Gail, now he also loses another child.

    I thought it was Brody! And I think he actually had chem with ER so good on him. I will still miss DZ, but this is an FV get I might enjoy.

    Unpopular Opinions: "I hate BLTs from Kelly's!"

    My UO: I don't want Billy Miller to leave. His time at GH could have been put to such good use. Sadly, it was frittered away. But I'm still sorry to see him go and, when his last show airs, I'll shake my head at all the missed opportunities.

    List of fuckable men (character names): Drew Curtis Chase Jacks / Jax (never been sure which one it is...) Robert Mac I'm going to add Lucas and Kevin. (I've liked Lindstrom for a very, very long time. And I think Carnes is kind of hot.)

    The Big Bang Theory

    Ack! I came to read and post in the finale thread. What happened? Where did all the other episode threads go? It's too soon! On the air 12 years and the finale less then a month ago. Really, isn't it too soon? I need a hot beverage.

    Stars In Other Roles: Doppelgangers!

    Not a role, but I saw my first show with a directed by Kimberly McCullough credit (The Bold Type.) It was a second or two before I realized that I was smiling so big.

    The Big Bang Theory

    On Amazon: Updated Periodic Table of Elements Shower Curtain. PVC Free and Periodic Table Shower Curtain (EVA vinyl) - The Official Curtain on The Big Bang Theory . I hadn't thought of that. Now I want one too!

    The Big Bang Theory

    I'm re-watching a bit and am currently in Season 3. I'd forgotten how drastically Bernadette changed from her first few episodes, probably even more so than Amy. It's quite jolting to see her as shy and timid. And with all of Howard's "jokes" going over her head, so odd. I watched Raj's King of the Rabbits speech three times. I'll always love that. Until the finale, I didn't even realize that I would miss this show that much. And I teared up at the oddest time. It was during the special with Johnny and Kaley and they showed the clip of Amy getting the tiara. Yup - then I got the water works. This show wasn't always on the top of its game but when they got it right, it was awesome. In the news of the day, when I read this this morning - Physicists can predict the jumps of Schrödinger’s cat (and finally save it) (Yale News) - I admit I first thought of BBT.

    I hate this part of the story. But then I was always Robert / Anna, not Robert / Holly. I cried when they got remarried in the 1990's and again during Night Shift II when it seemed clear they were there for each other until the end. The Anna the show has been writing for the last two to three years - I'm not sure who that character is.
  13. I join you in the bitterness. I also came to appreciate Romano through MoaCA; such a good show. I didn't watch Everybody Loves Raymond during its run but started catching reruns because of Certain Age. I keep meaning to watch Paddleton on Netflix; I've read it's another good performance.

    S5.E7: Chapter Eighty-Eight

    I totally agree with everyone who said this ruins ever rewatching. That was total bullshit. I'm not pissed that Jane is going to end up with Raf; I do believe that was always going to happen. I am pissed, and do care, about what the show has now taken away. One of those things was perhaps my favorite TV wedding ever. The joyous chemistry that Gina and Brett had just flew off the screen, filled the room and enveloped the viewer. Then the incredible work that Gina did when Michael was shot, the fear and the shock. Their happiness after his recovery and being so damn cute together. And Gina just knocking it out of the park portraying the incredible depth of Jane's grief when Michael died. All of those moments - no longer watchable. Can not be said enough - Michael was kidnapped, tortured, lost everyone and everything he loved and held dear. To leave this out of the show, to not even pay it decent lip service - total bullshit. After he got his memory back, ignoring his relationship with Rogelio - (yes, you guessed it) total bullshit. I can't remember when I last unchecked a show on Netflix from my watchlist but JtV came off last night. I'm usually a completist and will stay with a show until the bitter end, but right now I'm undecided. Once more with feeling: bullshit.

    That was my first thought. This is how we'll be sure that Ryan is most sincerely, completely dead and with the Nurses Ball coming I'm assuming all the big drama will tie in to the event. Laura and Robert! That was really the first time since 198? they've been in a scene together? I'm going to have to watch that again. And while I like GF with JL, she should have said yes. It's RFS!
