  1. When is the last time Kodouche washed his hair? How about cleaning yourself up and LOOK professional.


    Where did the "When have I ever been in charge?" outburst come from? He gets his way ALL of the time, but acts like a toddler throwing a tantrum. Then he says, "I've got emotional vomit... and I'm gonna puke on everyone!". Who says that? Has he spent the hiatus from the show making up soundbites to use when he can't think of anything? He also thinks he has an "empire". Kody, you have to actually do a lot of WORK to get ahead.


    Another stupid comment was when he said, "everything we touch turns to gold". No. It doesn't. They had to run away from their home in Utah. Kody thought they'd be realtors and "own" the agency they walked into. Only to find out that it's hard. Only 1 of them got their realtor license IIRC. What about them buying a gym? What about them selling those products online, might have been Amway or something? They have millions of hits on their website because of their reality show without EXTRA marketing and still can't get more than 500 sales? THAT is BAAAAADDDDD! That news should have had those investors laughing their asses off.

  2. That episode is one of my all-time favorites. From start to finish it's hilarious!

    "If you batted your eyes any harder you'd blow out the candles."

    "And by the way... STINKY needs a ride."

    "It must have been during ONE OF MY BLACK OUTS!"

    "Don't forget your warm glass of Tang."

    "I remember when I first drove a moon-crane... damn near drove it into the Sea of Tranquility."

    "Yeah. I had fun, too."

  3. the filming of The Lucy/Desi Comedy Hour episode where they visit Japan, things between Lucy and Desi were at the end and the makeup artist had to keep reapplying white face paint to Lucy in her geisha girl costume because she kept crying so much.


    Oh, that's so sad. I'll probably not watch that one again.


    Fred and his penny pinching... he was sooo ungrateful in this episode. Ricky and Lucy are taking them to Hollywood and Fred is quibbling over pitching in for gas money. If Ricky was like that, the Mertz's wouldn't have gone anywhere. Ricky was very generous and a good sport. He didn't have to share so much.

  4. I agree with lots of the comments about the way the women dressed.


    Some of Carrie's outfits were so bizarre I had to roll my eyes at them. Like in the episode where she's in Paris living with Mikhail Baryshnikov's character. In one of the restaurants she is wearing what looks like a baby pink tube top with sparkly rhinestones all over it AND coming out of each rhinestone was a plume of maribou. A 16 year old would like that outfit. For a grown woman who fancies herself the most fashionably sophisticated woman EVER, I found it laughable! Also, she sometimes wears a small pill box hat ruining the look she was going for as she looks like she's at a birthday party for ONE and waiting for a balloon animal to be given to her.


    Carrie's wedding dress and bizarre hat/veil with the plume are ridiculous! How about something beautiful? I didn't mind the dress so much, but her hair done that way AND the accessories ruined the whole thing. We know Carrie can look beautiful, but they screw it up when it's something important.


    I totally agree that Charlotte was always classic, well dressed, appropriately dressed, and beautiful. I wish I had the money to dress like her AND the tiny figure to go with it. She always looked nice.


    Miranda dresses more like a regular woman. My closet is a mix of pretty dresses, classic styles, and button shirts with jeans.


    Samantha dressed nicely for the most part, but her accessories screamed CHEAP to me. Blue enamel earrings, punched-out-metal Grape earrings, yellow hoop earrings that look like plastic. For as much money as Samantha has she should be wearing gold with real precious stones. Sometimes we saw her wear an authentic piece, like that expensive flower ring. But, she didn't seem to care that much for the nice stuff, at least not as much as I think she should care. She'd rather wear some bright color enamel earrings that look like they came from Target. I'm not knocking Target, just that Samantha wants to be ELITE so she shouldn't be wearing the cheap costume look. Her stuff might have been expensive, but it sure didn't LOOK like it, IMO.


    I watch QVC and have heard for years that most of the jewelry for the SATC show and movies is from the Kenneth J Lane line. That line was a big deal decades ago, but it doesn't mean anything to me. Especially when so much of it is plastic and/or resin.

  5. Rose's mother comes across like a rational, well-adjusted person. Rose is nothing like her. I'm surprised that the writers didn't take the opportunity to go over the top with her mother's personality. If they had, it would have explained Rose's beliefs more. Her mom was too normal.

  6. I really enjoyed this episode. They actually addressed some questions that we've thought of here and on the TWoP forum.


    Thanks, @Steff, for that beautifully written post about Bill's attributes. You said it better than I would have. I find Bill very attractive in personality, caring, AND looks. He's a great guy!


    Regarding the question about cancer from the young poster - My mother was diagnosed with cancer the first time when I was 6 years old. I was sitting on the steps of our home when my mom asked me why I was crying and I said "I don't want you to die". At 6 years old I knew about death already. I'd seen it on tv and in movies. My mother had cancer 3 times when I was growing up. She died when I was 19. I do believe that question was real.


    It's funny that Zoey went from not being sure about animals to allowing the dogs to lick her mouth that way. Ick. I hope she grows out of that.


    Also, about the outfit change in India - I was thinking it might be that Zoey's original dress might have smelled too much like India. Not only did they have to do a diaper change, but a fresh clean dress would be nice. They were probably surprised to even read the initial comments that it was all staged. I didn't think of that at all. But, glad they mentioned it on their Q and A episode anyway.


    Love love love all the "smile" clips and Bill's take on them.

  7. I don't really like that episode. It's a stupid idea in the first place AND I felt sorry for the Pig. I'd rather have had a story about how they were doing something real in their lives... like how they argue over trying to pick a movie to see, or where to go out to dinner. Oh, that's just me and MY family? I'd even rather have had another fake clip show of all the girls sitting and chatting about their lives before they met. No. They had to have Rose announce that she was going to have a "Baby".

  8. Thanks for the info. I'd forgotten her name was Kari. I liked that they made Martin a cop in the beginning and were able to use his background in lots of episodes. It served him well over the years. I hate it when a show introduces something for only 1 episode for 1 or 2 jokes only to never mention it again. I originally thought Niles' nose bleeds would be the same way, but they did use that from time to time.


    Then again, Frasier had trouble with his ethics several times throughout the series, but he doesn't get queasy like he did with that caller who previously dated Marco. I would have expected him to feel ill when he was in bed with Claire on that trip to Belize and wanting to be with Lana instead.

  9. "One or all of the other Girls won't believe me" episodes



    Of all the girls, Blanche would be the hardest for me to believe. Like when that local politician said he slept with Blanche, but she actually didn't sleep with him. Blanche stretched the truth so much that it's understandable the others didn't believe her. Another example is when she showed them the 5 places she lost her virginity. BUT, Rose doesn't go around trying to deceive the others ever. So why wouldn't they believe Rose? They know she's not one to make up something like that without reason. Yet, they believed Holly without question and turned it back on Rose.

  10. ITA about Jackson needs to stop provoking the client's cat to scratch him. They do the dramatic moment where Jackson shows his bleeding wound to the camera moment, but he deserved it.


    I too don't understand how a vet could miss big clues like "sometimes there's blood with the poop" unless these people lied and didn't really take him to the vet OR they didn't tell the vet the whole story. I felt sorry for Whiskey and am glad he finally got the help he needed. Another episode where the people aren't connecting with their cat and trying to figure it out. Maybe we should keep count.

  11. The episode where Lucy dances and sings with Van Johnson is one of my favorites.


    Another favorite "singing" moment, was in the episode where Lucy hires Mr. Livermore to tutor them in proper English. After the lesson, the guy whips out a song he composed.


    MR. LIVERMORE:  "I tippy-tippy-toe through my garden, where all the pretty flowers dwell. There’s a rare perfume in my garden, and I just love to stand there and smell. And as I tippy-tippy-toe along... all the pretty flowers seem to sing this song---"


    RICKY: "Derry down pip pip."
    LUCY: "Dilly dilly day."
    ETHEL: "Hey nani nani."
    FRED: "Rippity pippity ay."


    FRED: "Derry down ding dong."
    ETHEL: "Dilly dilly do."
    LUCY: "Hey nani nani."
    RICKY: "Rippity pippity poo."


    RICKY: "That's all brother!"

  12. I'm glad you all are talking about Foley. Seeing that cat flailing when asleep would make me seek help long before it got that bad. It looked like Foley was having seizures. I'm SO glad to find out that the melatonin is working for them. Foley looks like he's doing much better. Being able to truly rest while he sleeps AND having a cat bed with sides to keep him from falling. Poor little guy.


    It's nice to see a story on this show that's different than the "HELP my fluffy is attacking me" and "Mr. Chuckles is spraying the walls and terrorizing Party Girl" stories that are the usual. Foley's problem is something we hadn't seen before on this show. Very informative. It'll help cat owners who have experienced the same problem. Also good to know the remedy is easily affordable and do-able.

    Lucy and Desi's marriage was pretty much over by the time the hourlong shows were made.

    I saw them a couple of years ago, BogoGog24.  I wasn't really a fan of them.  I love the half-hour episodes, but the hour-long ones don't have the same zing.  They have some isolated good moments, but it seemed like Ms. Ball's heart wasn't in it anymore.  

    I had never seen the 1 hour long special episodes until a few years ago. A couple of them were interesting, but they definitely had a different feel to them. Most were meh, but one made me emotionally upset. I'm not sure of the episode name. It might be His Girl Friday or something like that. Lucy gets a job working for some guy and becomes the female side-kick on a television show. She suddenly has a job that takes her away from home, away from her son, away from her friends, and especially away from Ricky.


    She "hires" Ethel to take care of little Ricky and her home. Lucy hardly sees her son anymore and Ethel is his "new mother", Lucy says. As an episode, that was a very real subject to bring to the camera at that time. We didn't see those "real life" subjects much back then. It was true about Lucy's personal life as well since she was working so much she had to have a nanny to take care of her children. I have seen a few videos and photos of their family having a good time at their home in the pool and vacations. But, it makes me wonder how much of that was for show or did she have a close family when her children were growing up.


    Lucy's at work so much she never sees hubby Ricky anymore. The scene where they meet in the train station to talk for a few minutes makes me cry. Lucy and Desi were probably divorced at that time so it was like watching them meet again estranged but are polite to each other. It's a reminder that what they had was gone. That scene is so emotional and I cried so hard. I SO wanted them to get back together in real life and remarry. Of course, I remembered that they've all been dead for a long time now. It's just that I loved them on IIL so much that I wanted them to have that happily ever after together. I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling that. But, we know that they never got back together as husband and wife. They were good friends though and still cared about each other.


    I KNEW I'd get emotional talking about this. Their sitcom always puts me in a good mood or I at least feel better for having watched. The hour long shows reminded me of what was gone and made me cry. I will probably never watch those hour long shows again. I'll always watch I Love Lucy though.

  14. I LOVED Jimmy's Late Night show and enjoyed the first 2 weeks of his transition to The Tonight Show. BUT, the show seems really lame now. It feels more like a long Saturday Night Live skit of Jimmy doing a talk show. I still love it when Justin Timberlake is with him, b/c those guys are AWESOME together. The other stuff like Jimmy doing roller golf(?) with Cameron Diaz was crap. It's like he's not himself anymore. I wish he'd go back to being the Late Night Jimmy.


    Also, the new set makes the show feel really small. I'm used to THE Tonight Show being a BIG production. Big stage. Big audience. Big curtain. Etc. Which added to the feeling of importance of the show. Now, it's a SMALL studio. SMALL stage. SMALL curtain. Makes it feel like Jimmy set up a desk and couch in his basement. The ROOTS has a bigger area to sit in but it lacks the personality and edgy feeling they had. Now they're sitting in a brown-taupe BLAH area.


    I watched the first 2 weeks with high expectations. Lately, I've tuned in for the first few minutes and to see who'll be guesting, but turn the channel a few minutes later.

  15. Hill Street Blues was one of those shows for me. Back in the day it won lots of tv awards and praise from critics. Ten years after it ended I caught several shows. Wow, I didn't feel the same way about it. With all the ground breaking things they did on that show and it was SO popular, for me it's unwatchable now. Law & Order had come along and was miles ahead of HSB.


    I laughed at the Miami Vice reference. Fashion crime, ITA! Looking back, that show seemed like one long music video with long close ups and some crime fighting thrown in.


    I Love Lucy and The Dick Van Dyke Show are favorites of mine. Both still hold up over time for me. The clothing and decor are definitely different. Definitely some of the attitudes about women having to stay and home and hopefully getting an allowance and a good-girl pat on the head from hubby. Much of the humor and basically how people are still people makes me want to watch them.
