  1. If you're poor, you do. People judge. And the last time I looked, some apps require a paid account to have access to various backgrounds. (That may have changed, I haven't looked lately.)
  2. This is the first episode in ages that I actually enjoyed watching. I could relate to the mad Zoom background scramble, so that set it up well. Also, I love small local hardware stores and Dan fit perfectly there. Maybe Dan and Ben can do a home repair podcast.
  3. I have had mixed feelings about the writing re: Billy lately, so I wonder if the sketching scene was their answer to the criticisms out there. There is an elegance and sweetness to Sheldon and Billy being opposite sides of a coin in some ways and 2 peas in a pod in others. Show seems poised on the brink of some major changes though.
  4. Just a gentle reminder that discussions from other boards are not on topic.
  5. From what I can tell, a lot of places will be airing GH overnight. Today's episode will be available on ABC's website and mobile app after 8:00 tonight, from what the internet says. Never mind... I didn't notice all the 2020 dates. Sigh. I'm not sure why my searches didn't bring up anything useful. You would think someone at ABC might care. I finally got back into watching because it fits into my late afternoon schedule. ๐Ÿ™
  6. Thanks for passing this on. I'd almost forgotten about it. I do try to keep tabs on the IMDB channel because of the upcoming Leverage reboot but... so many shows, so little time.
  7. If Covid had started here, the whole lab escape vs wild animal transmission would be important because we would need to know if a lab needed to be shutdown, regulations needed to be updated, safety processes needed to be implemented, etc. What difference it makes at this point, I'm not sure. China is never going to be transparent about it. And research is still important, despite the risks. What I found odd is how eager Bill was to promote it.
  8. I think Roseanne and David had a weird bond based on abusive childhoods. It was definitely its own separate thing and I actually kind of understand it but it doesn't negate the fact that David was an awful parent. While his terrible childhood explains his lack of parenting skills, I had hoped his attempts at therapy would have helped rehabilitate the character more. Instead we have a gaping hole where David should be in their lives. I can't blame JG for not wanting to be in The Conners as it is now. (Assuming he was asked and said no but who knows?)
  9. My favorite game show was probably Pyramid, any denomination. The one I'd like to be on? Any show where I could be partnered with Betty White - Password would be the best.
  10. Folks, please keep the focus on the show. A little bit of topic drift is okay as long as a reader can follow the thread. But... once you get into what Rachel should cover or what a political party should do, you have wandered too far.
  11. I didn't really like cereal as a kid, though we ate it. Mostly corn flakes or Raisin Bran - Coco Puffs were a treat. Now I eat gluten free peanut butter toast for breakfast and sometimes have Honey Nut Chex with vanilla soy milk as an afternoon snack. ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. I liked Robin too. Since the reboot, Becky has had a pretty good work ethic. Even as a drunk, she held down a job and took care of herself. And she worked hard at the Lunchbox. But she had the baby with her there and 9 or 10 hours a day away from her was probably more traumatic for Becky than Beverly Rose. Separation anxiety is real. I hated going back to work when my kids were babies, so maybe I'm more sympathetic and see it as a temporary lapse. That said, I hate out of character writing that just serves to provide conflict or prop other characters so I didn't really care for
  13. The original got working class insecurity/borderline poverty better (in the early years anyway) than they do today, certainly. I suppose because Roseanne herself kept it real in a way sitcoms typically don't. Society tends to look at poverty as a moral failing but there is a psychology to poverty and privation that shapes decision making. It can be reproduced in simulations and experiments, where even normal, level-headed, middle class people make unwise decisions. The economic studies of scarcity show we even do it on a societal level. It's really, really difficult to make wise, lon
  14. I don't know what the original site owners were thinking but I do think it contributes to a more civil atmosphere. For instance, no one can create a number of incendiary posts, delete them and then act innocent when there's fallout. Users can also edit a post for a limited time. A week, I think? If we see a post that has been edited to no text or with "never mind" it will be taken care of.
  15. And so ends 2020... TRMS discussion continues here.
  16. Posts can't be deleted by users. If you have something that needs attention, you can either PM one of the forum mods or report the post with a brief description of what needs to be done. The mods for The Conners are @Pallas, @statsgirl and @tessaray (me).
  17. Discuss 2021 episodes of The Rachael Maddow Show here. Usual rules apply; discuss the show; personal politics will get a post removed, and repeated violations may result in further sanctions. Thank you! Questions? Contact @thewhiteowlor @tessaray.
  18. I don't do Christmas and usually turn off the radio weeks before. But for some reason I'll always listen to the original Happy Xmas (War is Over) without complaint. ๐Ÿ™‚
  19. I'm all for it, if only for the possibility of OLTL getting another chance as well. And maybe they'd lure TK away from B&B. Win, win... ๐Ÿ™‚
  20. Liver. Just typing the word makes me gag. I remember as a teen going to a formal party and someone was all excited that they were serving pรขtรฉ. Ugh. Giving it a French name doesn't make it less disgusting. I think it's mainly a textural issue, though the smell doesn't help.

    I did read that they would be rotating the free stuff, so it couldn't hurt to keep an eye out. The $5/mo plan might be worth it if you wanted to binge some of the old USA shows.

    Monk is on Peacock. Though I paid for the cheapest premium level it looks like Monk is on the free level.
  23. I watched a few minutes this morning and noticed that Barker wasn't very snide to the contestants, which was nice. But honestly, I was really distracted by the 80s hair. ๐Ÿ™‚ And the horrible appliance colors. I do not miss the early 80s at all.
