    S06.E10: It's All About the Money, Honey

    Claire specifically said she was hired for Google in LA. Edited to add: a quick and superficial search through Google indicates that New York is home of Google's second largest office - she could have requested staying there (for family reasons).

    S06.E10: It's All About the Money, Honey

    As they were in the meeting with the investors, I kept wondering when someone would bring up that they had missed payroll for at least 3 months in the past year (or so). I'm surprised anyone is still working at Millennial/whatever Charles's new imprint, and even more that people still think it might be an investment. (And at least one of times they missed payroll was because their last investor withdrew all her funds...) And Claire has been head-hunted to be a senior program manager at Google? What experience does she actually have? The last work she was doing in tech was as an intern or something, right?

    Halfway through S2 and I really don't get why Rachel gets so many men, The actress is pretty and cleans up well, but Rachel is messed up, grubby, and must smell. I guess she's definitely different from the girls in the house?

    Season 4 Discussion

    I thought Jonathan was more encouraging her to wear it more like that around the house, basically giving her the confidence to give her hair time to "breathe" in private, not always braided/under a hat/under a wig in the hopes that it will start to heal and fill out over time. He had another scene later where he was showing her how to "safely" wig-cap, so I think he was still expecting her to mostly wear wigs and stuff out-and-about for now. I understood that, over time and without the weaves, her hair could actually grow back. At a minimum, she could create something that allowed her to wear her own hair at home and "even answer the door" in it.

    She reminds me of the principal at my convent boarding school: Sister Hillary had much of the same attitude.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Thank you @Wynterwolf - I appreciate this. It validates the way I've been led to think about his life in the 21st century and makes me understand why the end of Endgame was such a needle scratch. Steve Rogers has spent far more of his adult life in the 21st century than he did in the 1930's. He's been told to move on by Peggy, by Natasha, even by the Scarlet Witch. Yes, he's been a soldier -- and that military support system has been important to him. (I personally believe that his whole time as Nomad after he resigned from the Avengers was so clearly a bout of deep depression -- Rogers was always clean cut and kept his uniform clean and in one piece.) @Anduin suggested that Rogers was tired of war and fighting and wanted to rest. The 5 years after the snappening weren't part of active fighting. He spent his days working with veterans and hanging out. (Not depressed - he had a purpose.) It jarred for me that he was still referring to Peggy in group as the love of his life. It felt like he as holding on to a memory that had become a fantasy. I've said before that I could see him going back to dance with Peggy because he wanted to keep the promise he had made - and yes, I agree with other commenters, that it could have been at the Stork Club. Those of you who have bought Endgame, is there any clarity about the second picture on Peggy's desk in the '70's. Do we see who's in the picture? I thought it might be of her two kids but wasn't sure.

    It seems that Mercury's demographic is anything Millennial readers want, brought to them by a couple of men.

    The high sex bothered me -- what's the situation with mutual consent if both (or all) participants are impaired? What happens when you give consent to one person and discover they are just your mind's view of someone else?

    aaaargh…. I like Sutton Foster, and the characters of Josh and Diana, but I'm not sure that's enough to take me through a whole other season... I was hoping things would get wrapped up this year.

    S06.E05: Stiff Competition

    These last two episodes have not made me like Charles any better, I keep waiting to see what the show wants me to see in him and I can't.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Plus he'd just seen what she looked like when she was 50 plus and she looked pretty much the same as she had done in her twenties... Anyway, the one thing I wanted to see in the movie was the other picture(s) on Peggy's desk. Steve definitely pushed something away to look at the picture of skinny Steve. I can wait until I have to get a subscription to the new streaming Disney service to see the recording (I would have to FF most of the Iron Man scenes in any case.)

    S31:E10 Chugga Chugga Choo Choo!

    I noticed that Becca had some hay in her hand the second time they went for the eggs. There was hay on the display table with the cheese and eggs. I would have stuffed the bag with hay so that the eggs were swaddled in it so they would have a better chance of getting across the ditch and to market without being cracked. From what I remember, the eggs were generally just loose in the sack -- right?

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Someone mentioned how unfair and cruel it would have been if Steve just came back in time to let Peggy know he was alright, have a dance with her, and leave. I've been considering this, and I realized that I don't agree. In my early 20's, I had an intense relationship with a man. My family moved me to a different continent (it could have been to a different time) and I didn't hear from him for 30 years. He informed my later relationships, I had his picture on my desk at work for years, and I did always wonder what happened to him. When we met again, he was married, a SAHD with 4 children under 6. We talked, he apologized for being distant, less than faithful, and unkind. He had actually followed me to the country I had moved to, and tried to find me. We're not friends - his politics are not mine -- but I'm forever grateful for what he did to complete the past.
