    Tales Of The City

    I've been reading (and re-and-re-reading) the books since the early 1980s when I was in my early twenties. When what was to be the final TOTC book came out (Sure of You) I went to a reading Armistead was giving (and got my copy autographed) and in a Q&A he said that he would like to see Colleen Dewhurst as Anna (this was years before the series was made and, by then Miss Dewhurst had died). I loved the first series and remember what a big thing it was on PBS at the time. I also thought it was almost perfectly cast (especially Mary Ann, Mouse and Mona). I wish so much I could say the same for this version of what seems like a 'bizzaro' Barbary Lane. AND: there a far, far too many just plain awful changes/differences from the books that it get so irritating to watch ... and to sit next to loudly bitching about it on the couch, it would seem. My favourite episode was, oddly enough, the one that told of Anna's past that took place in '66. The acting (Jen Richards, Luke Kirby and the divine Daniela Vega) was superb as were the writing and directing. I liked Ellen Page as Shawna and I could still talk with Anna Madrigal all night long.

    S11.E07: From Farm to Runway

    I couldn’t agree with you more , DanielleC . The “screamy queens” are driving me nuts. Silky is beyond delusional with both the way she thinks she looks and that “America is going to love her” I think Yvie is talented and I love her drag but she manufactures much unnecessary drama; you don’t need to share your (for the most part) unsolicited opinions of the other queen’s drag or personalities especially when you know it’s just going to start a shitstorm. I was born, raised and have lived in Toronto all my life and it made me laugh watching Brooke building a couch pillow safe space around herself as I would have done the same thing. Also, I’m not sure if it’s just this particular season I hate or if I’ve just gone “off” RPDR? That said: Miss Alyssa Edwards: Drag Race ROYALTY! 👑

    I know Elizabeth was there to promote her book but I wonder if the producers may be considering her as a replacement for Abbey when she goes on maternity leave.

    If Megan McCain is such a “big girl” why can she not resist sniping and chastising the studio audience? I cannot believe the producers haven’t spoken to her about this multiple times already and yet she cannot help herself and refer to the audience as hostile and, of course, how brave she is to come in every day and face them being such a “big girl” about it.
  5. This is the first time I can recall absolutely not liking anyone who is left in the game. Not one, and I've been watching since season one. I don't find any of their 'humour' funny and think most of them are down right mean. It seems this cast is hyper aware of the fact they are on tv and are under the delusion that this will make them 'famous' (at least in Big Brother terms). I'm aware that this may have to do more with me than the show as, at least from many of the comments here, most folks are really enjoying the cast and this season. Let me put it this way: I dislike this cast and this season so much I can't even find any fun in 'hate' watching it. Oh well.

    yeah, this episode had deep layers of fuckery that was so obvious is was on 'valley of the dolls' level of "oh god, it really doesn't know how bad it is!" aja was this season's 'neely o'hara' character and fuck you that she gets cut out of nowhere. girl. no.

    This deserves framing! Something tasteful, cobalt blue.

    Oh, I couldn't agree more! I still feel that Meredith was, by far, the best moderator the show ever had. I'd choose Rosie O'Donnell as second but I don't think she'll even be a guest again, much less the moderator. My memory of the Nicole Wallace year was that she was supposed to be there for the conservative point of view but they sat her next to Whoopi who seemed to really like her. It was like she and Whoopi became buds.

    Oh, I must say I do like 'Elsa'; it really suits her. I also realized I'm going to miss Sarah. She's like that girlfriend in high school you had a scream with in french class. I'm happy for her, though. Whoopi can s$%^ my d*&(. Did McCain put her in his will or does he have something on her? Honestly, she treats Elsa with the kiddiest of gloves. That said ... it's become sort of fascinating to watch. When do they go on Happy Holidays Time (for me that would be Christmas)?

    How about: Meghan McCain: Supercunt, for her thread title? Yeah, the whole Whoopi v. Sunny thing is just getting more and more uncomfortable. I think that 'producer' Whoopi would have loved to have gotten rid of Sunny but maybe was allowed to 'choose' Jed's replacement and, for some reason she's 'in love' with Meghan McCain (Supercunt). What I'm waiting for is the day when a 'guest' (whatever happened to those; yes I'm exaggerating) is the one to tear Meghan several new ones. Then we'll see 'touch chick's' true colours.

    I know who the "spoiler queen" is but I think it's just something for fans to chew and and try to decipher when it's just a funny red herring. I still think the spoiler queen is for reasons I stated above. Also, I know absolutely nothing about what I'm talking about!

    I'm ok with the cast and there are more queens that I love/admire than not. As it currently stands I'd had to say I'm team Trixie Mattel and Team Chi Chi DeVayne. The only thing that may change that is IF the 'mystery surprise' or whatever the fuck they're calling it, is Valentina! The queens will instantly be Team Aja or Team Valentina! Drama and ... um, drama! I'd be Team Valentina, by the way ...,now, don't hate me because she's so beautiful like linnnnnda evangaliiiiiista!

    Oh, I meant to add that I loved Sheila E.'s performance today. I have such fond memories of the time of my life when her big hit The Glamorous Life was so popular and wore my cha-cha heels (black ones!) out dancing to it. I am Canadian (!), though, so I don't have the same feelings (obviously) for the song that Americans will have. p.s. and I wanted to thank the poster who first referred to the fact that Meghan McCain (the initials MM are reserved for Marilyn Monroe for me) is humorless. As my dear mother would have said "truer words were never spoken".
