  1. I thought her crying was terribly fake, but the rest was fine.
  2. I always thought it was a lame attempt to explain away Carrie's sudden baggy wardrobe, which was only worn because SJP was pregnant at the time. That being said, I am 50, and I definitely dress differently than I did in my 30s.
  3. I found both Trey and Berger extremely cringeworthy.
  4. Which for me is more than half of them. I watched the after show with Bret Michaels because he's entertaining, but generally have no interest in it. As it is, I FF through much of the main hour. I didn't watch any of this week's performances in their entirety. None of them are THAT good.
  5. I can't stand AB so I'm very glad they didn't go that route.
  6. I wasn't a big fan of the original finale, but these are all worse!
  7. I always thought the shriek was so unnatural. What about when she sees the squirrel at Aidan's house in Suffern (heh) -- she shrieks and drops the pie she just took out of the oven, burning her legs. I mean...I get that the squirrel had the element of surprise, but come on.
  8. I had no idea they had done such an episode and I thought it was brave and brilliant! It took me a couple of minutes to catch on that the entire episode was shot from each actor's home. It was so very well-done from start to finish. I loved the DJ as somewhat of a Greek Chorus...the exterior shots of a shuttered L.A. (ouch)...the range of feelings expressed by various characters from anxiety to helplessness...the realistic touch of Sara picking up work as an Instacart shopper and Sherri organizing her pantry...the conversation with Lola and Roxy reminding us all that we can be emotionally connected even when we are physically separated. So original and well-executed! I thought there was a missed opportunity to comment on the clear air in L.A. (or did I miss it?). I also would have loved to see Amy have a vulnerable moment so the audience might like her a little...rather than just her doing yoga 3x a day and Face Time sex. I was very surprised she and Mark decided to shelter in place together (especially at his place) considering he drove her bonkers when he was making himself home at her place. But these are minor nitpicks on what was a great episode. So glad to see this show get renewed today!
  9. How in the world did Abby go off on her Eat, Pray, Love adventure, score herself a fiance, and yet is still wearing those fugly old-fashioned glasses?
  10. I haven't seen the original so I hope comparisons can be confined to a separate thread. Thanks!
  11. They are not at all convincing as husband and wife. They seem more like friends or even acquaintances/colleagues. I have no idea why they went this route with those two. She's coming back next week. Hence the Buck is lonely saga over the past few eps.
  12. I'm convinced he sleeps in the damn thing. It's a shame he's clinging to the bandana and wisps (or extensions?), because he'd look good with a shaved head.
  13. I just figured she was trying it out, only to confirm she's indeed straight. I always thought she should have stayed with Adam's brother. It wouldn't have worked for the show, but it would have been great for her character.
  14. Chris Noth hasn't tried to hide his disdain for Big's storyline in both movies, though. He also claimed that the script for the 3rd movie didn't call for Big to be killed off. So who knows.
  15. Koracik's ex is Tyra Collette's mom! Glasses is fucking insufferable.

    I don't enjoy 9-1-1 now that I'm holding my breath waiting for Michael to die.

    I think the wheel spinning is because
  18. I gave A Million Little Things two episodes. Terrible, terrible show. This, to me, was Hallmark Channel levels of schlocky. That being said, I like schlock more than darkness on my TV. I'll give it at least one more episode. The problem is the best character died. And presumably, shows back up in flashbacks. Doesn't feel at all fresh.
  19. I hated seeing Richard like that. And to go from hand tremors to a full-blown, 2-day cognitive event seems unlikely. Maggie's dude's "and Richard is...?" was the main thing that stood out to me. This line wouldn't have been written if they are meant to be instant star-crossed lovers. Something's up.
  20. According to Wikipedia, she most recently gave birth in January 2015.
  21. I primarily know Bella Thorne as the 2018 winner of Fug Madness. The 2020 tournament starts today!
  22. SKB did a Facebook Live after the episode aired last night. I watched it this morning and even he said Randall did the wrong thing.
  23. Many years ago, I was calling around to try to find a therapist. I spoke to one and told her I did not want someone who would tell me what to do. Based on that, she concluded she couldn't work with me. Always felt I dodged a bullet there. I didn't particularly enjoy this episode. It's been mentioned upthread a couple of times, but it doesn't make much sense that Kate is still morbidly obese in the scenarios where Jack lives. We were previously led to believe that Jack's death is what led to her enormous weight gain, although this season it's seemed more like Marc's abuse is where that trajectory starts. If Jack had lived, it's unlikely she would have met Marc. I don't know much about clinical trials, but my understanding is that one cannot simply just decide to participate in a clinical trial. Not to mention, she may not get the experimental drug. Since Rebecca is at the cabin in August, she clearly doesn't end up spending 9 months in St. Louis. Either way, adult Randall has a history of manipulating others to get what he wants, but this instance is really beyond the pale.
  24. Not sure about the squats, but he's pretty busy as a judge on American Idol.
