    Reef Break

    Welp, I watched part of episode 3 and couldn't be bothered to finish. It's been sitting on the DVR for days. Another one bites the dust.

    S05.E15: Chapter Ninety-Six

    So an agent calls Jane with an offer for representation and Jane's end of the conversation is "Oh my God. Thank you!" Click.

    Grand Hotel

    After last week's ep, it should be obvious that Javi is a born salesman. Putting him in Facilities is a waste.
  4. Warning: rant ahead! Love Unleashed was so incredibly annoying, and I watched to the end. I'm a Golden Retriever mom and I couldn't get past the absurdity of a pregnant Golden wandering the streets...then giving birth to a litter of purebreds (which at least most of those puppies appeared to be)...then the prospect that Golden Retriever puppies would be difficult to adopt out? Puh-leeze. I love Goldens but I really wish they'd had a litter of mixed breed puppies as the stars of the show, because it would have been so much more believable. A shelter in our area recently came by a litter of purebred Goldens and they had to set up a really specific process for adoption applications because they were expecting to be inundated (I know this because I seriously considered applying for one). Those puppies were too old not to have been adopted out yet. And the fact that they were shown to have the run of the house -- at Hailey's house and Ryan's -- really does a disservice to the viewers. Hallmark is supposedly so into dog rescue, and they really blew the opportunity to show what it's like to have a puppy in one's home. I also didn't fully comprehend the concept of a "puppy party" to interest people in rescue, nor did I believe that the shelter had an additional 5 puppies hanging around. Puppies always get adopted. As for the leads, I agree that they had NO chemistry. I like Jen Lilley but she was just too wide-eyed in this one for me. Her wardrobe was ridiculous for dealing with puppies. And the fact that any man would declare his love in front of his young daughter and the woman's father -- along with visual aids, no less -- was too much corn and cheese even for Hallmark. Speaking of the daughter, it seemed she was portrayed way younger than 8. I don't have kids, so I might be way off on this, but the kids in Hallmark movies always seem much more immature than their ages would call for. I have a 10-year-old niece, and no way she would have been clutching wide-eyed at a stuffed animal two years ago. Kids today are so much more sophisticated than I was at that age, but Hallmark seems to insist on portraying them as total innocents. I guess that's on-brand, though. ETA: the dog that the crabby neighbor was interested in was so beautiful!

    S05.E14: Chapter Ninety-Five

    I'm wondering what kind of "nursing school" she applied to. Xo didn't go to college, right? So, is she applying to college to study for a BSN? I sort of assumed she was applying to a LPN program, which seems much more within reach. Your point about the timeline still stands regardless, as I'm sure no such programs have a rolling and speedy admissions process.

    It seems so ludicrous. As far as I can tell, Xo has never even held a full-time job. So why, at this stage in life, is she suddenly going to buckle down and attempt something as tough as nursing school? Just don't see it happening.

    Dead To Me

    This series was interesting...it's billed as a black comedy, but there were very few comedic moments. One problem for me: as with certain other shows, there was really no one to root for because they're all shitty people (with the exception of Henry). Christina Applegate was fantastic, though.

    I guess it's an unpopular opinion, but I don't enjoy the Petra-JR relationship. It just seems to be all conflict and apologies, week in and week out. They also don't have any chemistry IMO.

    S17.E19: Season Finale (2019.05.19)

    Is anyone surprised? Kris was a nice guy but duller than dull and sounds like a million other bland guys out there. He even said himself that Adam should have won the season -- but then, of course, Adam would be saddled with the thankless Idol contract of yore. Speaking of which, I don't know what the current Idol contract consists of, but no doubt there are very few of the requirements that existed in Idol's heyday (back when the Top 10 were good enough to sell tickets to a tour).

    S17.E19: Season Finale (2019.05.19)

    I actually thought Alejandro was the "designated" winner -- not Laine -- and I was mildly surprised that he did not win. Alejandro is clearly talented but I did not care for his music as it was all sleepy and same-sounding. I saw the first few minutes of Kelly and Ryan today, and Ryan said he was chatting with Laine and Alejandro during the final commercial break. Apparently they both were slated to fly to NYC right after the show on a private chartered jet, with Laine set to appear on the show (as well as GMA) today and Alejandro tomorrow. Alejandro told Ryan he was afraid of flying. Ryan showed a photo of the two of them boarding their private charter. He later found out that after the doors were closed, Alejandro said he couldn't do it, and was let off the plane. He said as far as he knows, Alejandro is still in LA and he has no idea whether he is going to appear on the show tomorrow or not. I don't understand why Maddie wasn't invited to perform (I mean, I loved Montell Jordan's performance but he has no relevance here). I heard her new single "Made You Miss" a few days ago, and it sounded like generic pop. I could still hear a hint of her unique tone, but I was overall disappointed with the song considering what a unique talent she is. I didn't care for her styling on the finale, either. Just seems like they are trying to mold her into another bland pop princess.

    S05.E08: Chapter Eighty-Nine

    Or maybe he's just reacting to the constant chaos around him? I'm still wondering how he recognized Michael at the hotel, considering he was a baby when Michael died. Unless Jane did something ridiculous like raising Mateo from infancy with photos of Michael. I really don't understand where Rafael is coming from in the way he's treating Jane. Even the Jafael shopper must be having a hard time with this, since his behavior toward her is so cold.

    S15.E25: Jump into the Fog

    It's been over 25 years since I did inpatient psych intake, but way back when, the criteria included lack of success in outpatient treatment; danger to self or others; evidence of psychotic break, etc. Jo seems a much more appropriate candidate for intense outpatient treatment.
