  1. You are right. His name is Rahul. And it was Manon who had to leave so Rahul could stay. He made errors on all three tasks that week but he got to stay. From what I understand there was many, many viewers who felt as I did about the rank favoritism toward Rahul. Mel and Sue may have alluded to some things but Noel and Matt are being pretty specific. It seems to tarnish a fun and clean show. Overall I really love the show. Home bakers who love what they do striving to learn and master difficult techniques is appealing, especially when the bakers are nice people, which most of the contestants seem to be.
  2. I have really enjoyed this season of TGBBS. All the contestants were really nice and seemed to get along even though it is a competition. Early on there was an accident where the lady was swatting at a fly and knocked one of Dave's bakes onto the floor. He did not get mad and was so gracious to her. He has been so cool and just a nice guy throughout. Laura is fun and seems to love baking though she is a bit clumsy. I can relate. Hermine was fun to watch and it seemed her skill was great. But as the judges have often said, who goes home is based on what is produced in the three bakes that week, not previous work. However, I do remember one season where that was not the case. Rakesh, who went on to win, had a terrible week, but they sent Ruby home instead. I hated that season. I miss Sue and Mal. They were fun and not obscene.
  3. I just love everything about "The Good Doctor". This episode was very good. Love the new doctors who will join. The two I did not like are gone. Yay. Reznick's doggedness last night was great. She can be a pain in the neck but she is an excellent doctor. I empathize with her problems adjusting to her new path. She continues to think like a surgeon and that can be helpful to the team but her relentlessness can be disruptive. FG is just great in the part, imo. The show made a wonderful decision to have the show exist in a post-covid world. Most people watch dramas to escape the depression or monotony of real life. We have all had an overdose of reality and altered reality with the pandemic. It was great to get away from it for an hour. Shaun's evolving day by day and it is nice to see but he should always display signs of his autism, as it never goes away. Freddie is so good in his role. My one complaint is the loss of Melendez. His death sparked lots of story and will continue to do so I would imagine but I miss the actor and the character. Here's hoping Gonzales shows up on another show.
  4. First post here in a long time. I feel the stars this year have mostly been pretty good at learning and progressing with the dances. I loved Vernon for his beautiful spirit and humble attitude. His tears last night over his grandfather made me cry. I will miss him. I find Skai to be robotic. She never seems to connect to the music and the dead eye look is creepy. Of all the dancers left, she is the worst to me. Nelly has been such a pleasure to watch and I love Chrishell's determination to do better each week. Nev is good and so is Justina. I miss Len. This year as always, I find the judges misjudging some dancers week after week. But what do I know? I just know what I see. Loved Derek's dance with his gf. They were dazzling. He is missed as one of the pros. He is easily one of the very best dancers I have seen on the show. Sadly, I like Tyra Banks but she is not good as the host. I find it hard to hear her and sometimes understand what she is saying(if not for close captioning). Her clothes are horrendous. She did wear a gown last week that was lovely however. Tom's easy comradery and jokes with the contestants is missed. Also the show needs a pair of hosts.
  5. Marai Nagasu should be there tonight. What a travesty.
  6. I feel like I have come home. Reading the posts in this thread make all my feelings while watching Chicago Med completely validated. I detest that arrogant douche Halstead. He is so jealous of Dr. Rhodes that is smells. His constant hangdog love face around Manning is gross. For most of the season, Manning was extremely pregnant and Dr. Douche's lust was stomach churning. I loved it when Annie Potts/Mrs. Mother-in-law gave him the bum's rush. If this show is trying to make this jerk a hero and the audience root for him to best Rhodes, skate on breaking the rules and winning the heart of the newly delivered widow they have missed the mark by a mile. I hate him. Btw, I love Dr. Rhodes and feel so much for him. I also love Gregg Henry as Dr. Superstar. He is always worth watching. His love of surfing and Hawaii is so cute. Even Julie Berman is doing a great job as the uber top-of-the-class doctor. Dr. Choi is easy on the eyes and a good guy but troubled. Epatha Merkeson is straddling a fine line between being a compassionate doctor and good administrator. She has a hard job but the character is very likeable. Oliver Platt makes me smile every week. His Dr. Charles has common sense and great sensitivity for the patients and doctors. He is a joy. D.W. Moffett is a wonderful villain. He is effective playing hero or villain. Here he serves to make us understand Conner so much better. This show has so much going for it. Just drop the unrelateable Dr. Creep and all will be well.
  7. It is about three years too late but HALLELUJAH! Bye
  8. My take on Day's 50th storyline is not good. While I enjoy seeing characters who have been absent, beloved sets reappearing and the idea of a town celebration, the overall tenor of stories has been horrible. Let's review. Steve and Kayla are at odd with no sense that that situation will be resolved anytime soon. The somewhat romantic story of Aiden and Hope trying a second time to find happiness has been blown to smithereens by a murderous, nonsensical plot about Aiden the gambling addict, who never showed one hint of that previously, now determined to kill Hope for money while claiming to truly love her. Jennifer is just going around mothering and has no story whatsoever. Naggie looks on while Victor watches every breath Caroline takes. The Caroline story has been good and I loved seeing PM being stubborn, sneaky Grandma escaping the hospital. The Abe/new girl story was so predictable and the new character is so dull that I don't care one bit about that story. I love A Martinez and wish his story would be expanded. He is very watchable. TPTB have turned Justin into an annoying, vengeful man. Those dimples are wasted on that meany. Lucas and Adrienne make me laugh. Please. I was disappointed that Clyde had such an unceremonious exit. The actor made the most of Clyde. Salem needs a resident villain. Stefano is too old to even take seriously. Such a shame. Andre has come off as just a sycophant trying his best to get Daddy's approval. What should have been a wonderful celebration for Salem came off as a tacky costume drama. I won't even comment on the trials and tribulations of Abby's vagina. She brought all of this on herself. Ben is a murderer because he loves Abby so much. Yeah that's it. Nevermind he is totally insane. Chad is not a DiMera in any sense of the word or in the way he looks. So I don't care what happens to him. In short, there has been non-stop misery during what should have been a happy celebration of the life of a once venerable, entertaining show. Where is the celebration? I'm still waiting.
  9. So many threads left hanging. It's DA PLOT, I tell you. Where viewers see rich opportunity for payoff and good drama, a bad writers sees nasty truth that will interfere with where he wants a story to go. That is the shame of soaps today. The best stories explore most of the aspects and follow the natural path. In making heroines out of trollops and heroes out of non-heroes, the stories suffer greatly. Viewers should not have to imagine characters getting what they deserve, they should see it. Viewers should not have to see characters do things they would never do just to further a plot. The thing that really ticks me off about this necktie murder story is that it is all to make obstacles the Abifail and the NonDiMera , Smirking Chad. Trouble is, I don't care one thing about either of them. Thinking about characters were expunged for them makes me angry. Though I hated Clyde, James Read is wonderful and made an excellent villain. Stefano has lost his bite and the DiMeras are decimated. Andre may not be able to provide enough "evil" to make things interesting. Oh my, what will the GOOD people of Salem do?
  10. This episode was very satisfying and yet sad. I love that Walt has all his answers now. I love that Barlow got his just reward, but he was eaten alive by what he had done so Walt did him a favor. I'm sad to see Gerald McRaney go. He is such a presence in any cast. As Barlow he was a powerhouse. Still blown away that Branch is really gone. Did anyone find it odd that Cady was as unaffected by his death as she was? It always seemed that Branch was in love with her and perhaps more invested than she was but still I found her lack of grief odd. Walt seemed more moved and devastated by the loss of Branch than she did.
  11. How great is it having Walt and company back? It's hard to believe I never heard of "Longmire" while it was on A&E. I gobbled up all the episodes on Netflix like candy and was so disappointed to have no more. Now it's back. After having watched two episodes last night, I'm sadly convinced it was Branch whose body Walt found. I held out hope it was someone else but in the autopsy when his body was shown with the scars from Walt's repair, I knew he was dead dead. I will so miss Bailey Chase. I loved his secret affair with Cady, his attempts to please his father to become sheriff and his sad awareness that his father is a very bad man. It makes me doubly sad to see Gerald McRaney play such a cold-hearted killer. He killed his own son and never flinched. Oh my. Barlow you are a dog. I love Henry so much. LDP is such a good actor. The bond between Walt and Henry is so strong that it warms my heart. Poor Henry just cannot be left alone. Malachi is such a nasty customer. Graham Greene does a great job playing against type to make Malachi so hateful. While I understand the enmity between Native Americans and the white man, it seems to me that Walt has proven to be fair to all of the citizens in his county. I do hope the us vs them is not an overriding theme this season. Is anyone else sort of feeling queasy about Vic having a crush on Walt? Boundaries in a law enforcement job are important. I'm not feeling good about this turn of events. Lastly I love A Martinez. He makes Jacob Nighthorse come alive. He makes things interesting around Absaroka County.
  12. Well well. I feel used and abused as a viewer. First off the lesbian kaleidoscope sex went on too long and almost made me think artsy-fartsy clips were inserted to cover up the sex and steam. Go there but be tasteful and make the audience feel it. My eyes almost crossed with the endless prisms. Bedelia is a real snake-able to wriggle out of any situation. I did love it that she let Hannibal know she knew she would have eventually been on his menu had circumstances not intervened. Snakes are smart. The chemistry and adoration between Hannibal and Will is quite compelling. Then Will pulled the knife. The knife led to Hannibal's disappointment and that led to the saw. The character in Red Dragon was loathesome that I quite enjoyed the squeamish scenes where his brain was excised and prepared. Ray Liotta was wonderful. Will, on the other hand, made me immeasurably sad even though Hannibal did not complete his malevolence. The show has become so tense with no relief that it is work to watch it- not to mention the badly it scenes.
  13. I have to say that I though the manner of Jack's attack on Hannibal was very understandable. Using his fists was very personal, as opposed to the sterility of a gun. For all the characters in this story, Hannibal changed all the rules. Hannibal is a unique criminal. Typical feelings and reactions don't seem to apply. To me, when Jack attacked Hannibal and relentlessly beat him, I saw it as a sort of catharsis for all the pent up anger, frustration, hate and pain. It must have been immensely affirming for Jack to batter Hannibal almost to death. Will, so far this season has been a total bore. I find it hard to connect with him. He seems to have slipped into this other world of total capitulation to Hannibal's influence. What has been shown makes Will seem so weak. Despite the overuse of artsy diversions, I am still compelled by what happens next. Hannibal should live on in a cable outlet. It would be a shame for the show to just fade away unresolved.
  14. This season has been exquisitely beautiful and interesting but a little over the top esoterically speaking. But "Fannibals" are not satisfied with shallow simplistic plots. I have felt the separation of all the characters very keenly. Hannibal and Bedelia being together is a bit soothing but a lot like a very tense chess game. I do love the dynamic of the Lectors though. Mads and Gillian look so good together. The timing the actors have is very, very good. My heart bleeds for Will. He is so alone, save for the ghost of Abigail. He seems lost and without purpose since Hannibal left. The scenes with Jack and Bella were so poignant. I'm sad to see Bella go. But Jack is free to pursue Hannibal without fear of what may happen to Bella as a result. Alana seems more than changed. I do think I preferred her as naive and unsuspecting of Hannibal. Of all those who were hurt in Hannibal's escape I feel the least sorry for her. She chose Hannibal over Will and got what she deserved- bit obvious that I do not care for Alana. Love, the smarmy Chilton's return. I miss Michael Pitt. He plays chilling and soulless so well. The new guy is not menacing whatsoever. I bet even the pigs will find him uninteresting. Hannibal is a fascinating and visually beautiful show. Its failure on network tv is disappointing. I guess schlock is what the masses enjoy. No thinking required.
