    S07.E05: Into the Woods

    Just to nitpick, a French 1957 wine would never be described as "French merlot". French wines are not described by grape variety but by where they come from (area, village, name of the Chateau...). It's changing recently because of the international market requirements, but a 1957 wine would not have been described as Merlot. Merlot is a grape variety mostly used in Bordeaux wines, but Bordeaux wines are often assembly wines with different varieties of grapes. /end nitpick I enjoyed the COTW, convoluted as always, but as much as I love James Frain I'm not overly excited by the overall arc, so I'm looking towards the next episodes with a bit of skepticism. I hope I'll be proven wrong. I think last season's ending would have been a great serie finale, so this season really needs to up its game and so far I'm a little "meh".

    Well I guess that's the end of Tamsin Greig then... 😞 Although it makes sense the final season should be in New-York.

    S07.E01: The Further Adventures

    Kitty! Archie! Clive! Blond Joan (which I like)! And Tamsin Greig!!! What a great surprise! I met her (and absolutely loved her) on "Episodes". So glad the show is back and so glad there are still ties to the NY crew (although I'm not sure this will last...).

    S08.E05: The Bells

    That sums up perfectly the showrunners' investment in their show at this point.

    S17.E05: High Fashion to High Street

    I have read the whole discussion and don't feel anyone was mocking the man himself. I had no idea who he was, but as you I found him very genuine and supportive. I think most of the snark and fun I read was actually in reaction to the comment that "if you don't know Dapper Dan you don't know fashion" (which I hope was also made with a bit of humor).

    S15.E21: Good Shepherd

    Well, for all we know maybe the grandmother is the one looking for them when Meredith is busy doing something else (which used to be 99% of the time). Someone has to, right? To be fair, this season the writers seem to do a better job remembering Meredith actually has children at home. I actually don't remember how Meredith was getting on with the Shepherd family prior to Derek's death? It's sad indeed that the children are cut from half of their family. I would have expected the grandmother at least wanting to keep in touch with the children of her dead son.
  7. I use the site via "Manage followed content", in which I have a page for Forums and a page for Topics. I would like to sort the Topics by "Last reply" but I have an error message when doing so (see image). Other sorting options work fine. The "Sort by last reply" also work fine on the Forums followed page. Any clue? Possible fix? That would be awesome. Thanks a lot! Edit : I apologize, I just noticed this discussion : on a similar issue, which says the issue was sorted, but it's apparently not as I keep having the problem. Sorry 😞

    S04.E18: Tell Me The Truth

    But then what the need to have him not be the biological father? Why does it matter? This was so out of left field, I didn't get it. This man is the girl's father for all purpose and intents, whether or not she has his DNA is irrelevant. This was very weird to bring into the narrative. And honestly I was a bit shocked that the doctors seemed to agree that the father not being the biological father was a good enough reason for not asking his advice. It's not. What a weird message to send to the parents who are raising their non-biological child (and to these children). And as you point out Statsgirl there were other perfectly good enough reasons, so why bring that in the story?

    S04.E15: We Hold These Truths

    The doctors need to ask at a time like that because it's the only time they can recover an organ in good conditions. I can really understand how difficult and delicate it must be. Of course no one can force you. But I hope neither you or any of your loved ones are ever in need of an organ transplant (or I trust you would do the logical thing and refuse a donated organ). I apologize, this is probably going off-topic fast.

    S04.E14: Can't Unring That Bell

    Seriously, I think Neuro doctor was the single redeeming character for this episode. I always like his little snippets. He is very blunt but not actually mean and he's usually right! He just seems like he's had enough of all this sh*t (and as a viewer of this show, I can relate). And I also enjoy the very deadpanned way the actor delivers these lines.

    S07.E05: On the Prowl

    Ok, it may be a cultural thing, but when did belly buttons become offensive? (and when did showing a belly button was more offensive than showing your whole butt cheeks?). Also, what was happening with mentor Ann's hair? It looked like she had woken up in a hurry. Dmitry, I love you (in spite of what you have done to your face), but if you want us to believe that you are a kick-*ss inspirational designer, please be one! That dress was a snooze-fest.

    S07.E04: Of Corsets Fashion

    Well, they did : https://www.adoreme.com/corsets-and-bustier/jeanice (to get rid of the annoying "sign up" window, I clicked on "log in" and then you are able to close the window and browse the site) It's an inspiration of the look as they said it would be, but it's a recognisable inspiration and actually looks alright (it may even fit different body shapes, including curvy women).

    No topics anymore, just that one discussion for all. I do think it's a pity to choose this for shows that are still airing, but that's how it goes now.

    S04.E10: All The Lonely People

    I didn't feel there were reasons to doubt they did spent one night together. Bekker did not deny it while she talked to Rhodes Sr, but she refused to reitirate it. She just does not want Connor to learn about it. I'm not sure why I'm still watching this, all the characters are developing into really awful people. I'll save maybe Maggie and Sharon in this mess. The others, I just don't get who they really are (and I feel the writers don't have a clue either). And what I get, I really can't relate to.

    S07.02: Top of the Class

    I actually have no idea what a graduation party looks like and what kind of dress (or outfit) would be appropriate for one, but Irina's dress was inappropriate in any situation. The bottom was too short and the top was way too small and revealing. Many other dresses had much nicer cleavage openings (not sure what is the proper way to describe that), which left a lot to the imagination. I liked Evan's dress, I thought is was quite dramatic and interesting, but the fabric looked like wall-covering from the Victorian era. Not sure what Dmitry was thinking when he picked that color combination for himself, but the result was very disappointing. None of the designers really wowed me this week, and I think there are too many of them. Do we know how many episodes there will be in the season?
