  1. True. I think that's why I'm entertained by their acting. It's so obviously awful and yet the heat of the moment fools the others. Now, if they were condescending like Elisa & Corinne or the Reilly's, then I'd see it different.
  2. I will never tire of the Afganimals tricking the other racers into believing their lies. You'd think the others would have learned by now. Don't trust the Afganimals!. And yet they do. Pure entertainment. Victor's doing a great job considering he's racing all alone. Can't wait for next week's cat fight.
  3. Did Jane Fonda have knee surgery or problems in real life? I heard that's why they wrote that into the storyline to explain her limping.
  4. Thank you for punctuating my point. The show's creators need to reach beyond the Grace and Frankie storyline because people are complex. Typically, younger viewers are more interested in watching people similar to themselves in age and status. The same thing goes for older people. Same goes for gay, straight...etc. But since human beings are complicated and thereby do not all fit into a cookie cutter mold, the show's creators are smart to think dynamically and to incorporate storylines beyond just that of Grace and Frankie.
  5. I think the show's creators are trying to appeal to a larger audience, and rightfully so. If every scene is just Grace & Frankie, Grace & Frankie, Grace & Frankie the show's only audience would be middle-aged & older women. By including the Robert & Sol storyline the show appeals to men (although gay mostly). By including the siblings' storyline the show appeals to the younger sect. Every storyline is not going to be everybody's cup 'o tea, but it's a smart move by the show's creators to try and broaden their viewing demographic.
  6. Didnt Robert have a heart attack one season?
  7. I fast forward through a lot of the Grace with Frankie scenes because Frankie is such an idiot that I almost can't stand to watch her. If its a scene of Grace with someone other than Frankie, I'll watch. Grace, albeit an uptight alcoholic, is at least more palatable then Frankie. Robert and Sol's scenes are what makes the show interesting for me. I'm glad to see them get more air time this season.

    Fix The Show

    They need to create some new challenges instead recycling the old ones.
  9. Just when I'm starting to feel sorry for Patrick he pulls another jerk move. I wouldn't want to be in that house with him, but he sure does bring the drama. Jorge and Khasan are adorable. They would make a cute couple.
  10. My guess would be that it has to do with his social game or lack thereof. Unlike Survivor of 20 years ago where everything was all about who's the strongest, who can last the longest hanging on a pole, or standing on an uncomfortable 2-inch plank of wood in the heat or who can eat the most slugs, etc., Survivor these days takes social game into consideration a lot more than it should.
  11. Aubrey would have too. What a major disappointment just to throwaway their vote. I would love to hear what Cirie and Aubrey felt the Tai did that fell into the "Outwit," "Outlast," "Outplay" criteria.
  12. Michaela set the condescension bar for me when she repeatedly told Hannah to "shut up" during the Gen X - Millennials season. Plus, a lot of Michaela's condescension is more subtle than Brad's obvious dumb jerk-ery, but it still exists. Of course there's the hair whip and the eye rolls Michaela's so infamous for, but there's also the disrespectful, smug chomping of the coconut during tribal council, the cup and thermos thing and the go-get-me-some fish conversation she had with Culpepper. A lot of Michaela's condescension goes right over the average viewer's head, which I'm sure is by desig
  13. I don't know how anyone can like Michaela but not like Culpepper and vice versa. They're the same person. Both physically strong and athletic. Both hot headed. Both lacking in social skills. Both snarky and intimidating to the weaker sect. If you like one, you should like the other. If you hate one, you should hate the other.

  15. I haven't seen Brad do anything this season that may be seen as negative that wasn't deserved or provoked. People can't let go of the opinion they had of him from a previous season, and for that alone they dislike him this season. I say get over it. He's playing a great game this season, and considering TPTB were transparently letting him know "he's next" once Sierra got voted out, I don't blame him one iota for gloating his ass off after winning that immunity. He was entitled to that gloat. He'd earned it.
