  1. Hey IP, big fan, big fan! (I’m pretty new over here but I’m familiar with your work from the Big Fat boards.) I’m so sorry to hear about your illness and will keep you in my thoughts.

    Mykelti

    Not to defend Mykelti because she married FT and could thus very well be dirty, but I too wash my hair about once a week. I have thick curly hair, similar to hers, and since I started following the Curly Girl method, my hair is so much happier and healthier now that I don’t wash it as much. It doesn’t stink, I promise! The key is a good-quality shower cap so I can still shower.
  3. I’m going to be the lone SW fan on the board who hasn’t watched Clone Wars—I can’t get past the third episode for some reason. (I might try again though after liking live-action Ahsoka on Mando much, much more than I liked her in CW.) Anyway! I loved this episode and can’t wait for the season. I loved Crosshair turning on the Batch and think it’ll bring some real pathos in eps to come. One thing I kind of missed—what’s Echo’s special thing? I know he’s largely cybernetic but is that his whole thing? Because it seems to overlap pretty heavily with Tech, for instance, but the other guys
  4. These two parts in particular had me sittin’ here laughing my ass off.
  5. Defs out of context. It’ll be something like, “...and if I said something to you like, ‘Meri I don’t want to be married to [Douchebag] anymore’...” As much as I want better for them, I don’t think these women are ever going to wise up.
  6. This. Plus our instructors always encourage us to get a second mat if we’ll be on our knees. I mean, I’m glad that makes Janelle feel empowered because that’s never a bad thing, but this isn’t revolutionary.
  7. Thanks for the links, @tv echo. I don't normally dive into the media for shows I watch but that finale definitely has me wanting more.
  8. Jesus these people are all totally fucked up. Dawn terrified me, hanging all over her family while they read their letters, just beaming away. What an emotional succubus. Chuck’s letter to Dawn was basically just him delineating the ways he was not guilty of the things Dawn had accused him of, and then listing her assaults on him. These people are chilling—their kids need to wash their hands of both of them and save themselves.
  9. Re: the pastor, so did Husbo! Subtext and the like are completely lost on me; I am NOT observant, but it’s okay because I’m always surprised. Roche called it ‘the corkscrew’ to his family [and yay! to meeting Roche’s family! Is this the first we’ve seen of them?) so I bet that’s a nickname or something. I’m sure Ben, Javi, and Melanie roll their eyes and are like “helix OMG.” I wonder if the showrunners are aware how unpopular the LJ character is with the audience and that’s why we haven’t seen her that much. If they’re planning for a surprise LJ power move later in the sea
  10. My husband was bored but I enjoyed this episode. I’m enjoying this whole season, really. I like the way they’ve pushed the women to the forefront: Melanie, Ruth, Audrey (though I find the actress playing her to be *severely* lacking in the charisma they want us to believe she wields), and my girl Bess Till. I didn’t see the pastor being the mole at all and gasped at the reveal. I love that they subverted the ‘mystical negro’ trope in that way. They’re really allowing their women and POC characters to be nuanced, flawed, and grey, something usually reserved for white male characters i
  11. He didn’t have very much to say at all. I know he’s in a hell of his own making but I still feel a little bad for him, that his life has gone to such shit that the only way he thinks he can make a living is to be Big Whit’s support therapy animal (-cum-buttwiper). PS to @mytmo, one of the barnacles referred to S*** as Chase’s fiancé so it sounds like they’re planning to get married. Here’s hoping she thinks his time on the show was worth it.
  12. She’s so unbelievably self-centered, talking and pouting incessantly about how her pretend boyfriend didn’t ‘like’ her comment days after he had a NEWBORN BABY and while she’s on a comped vacation with her friends. How much is it worth, putting up with her? I’m actually obsessed with Todd these days—he completely dips the moment Big Whit gets on her bullshit, and if he can’t leave the scene completely, he stunts on her like when he was pirouetting all over the waterfall. I think he’s really found that sweet spot between not sucking up yet still getting paid. I stan.
  13. Agreed it’s fake and she knew, but dang Big Whit is selling this! She is super convincing IMO, while everyone else is kind of phoning it in. I mean, Chase can’t keep a straight face and Buddy seems to be on the brink of an eyeroll at all times. All that drama she studied in school is really paying off! Also, why is she more upset that he didn’t ask her to stay than she is that he cheated? My best girl was a shepherd mix. She was very stoic and not prone to big displays of affection. But if I were standing there so upset that I was crying and shouting in public, she’d have been beside
  14. Responding here to @Irate Panda’s news that Tal and Jon broke up—that really, really surprises me! I wonder if they’ll sell the house. I also wonder if Tal’s presence on the show had anything to do with it; Jon seems very private.
  15. She absolutely could do it, and frankly, with TLC’s resources behind her, she’d have a relatively easy time of it. They could hire her a nutritionist, chef, and trainers galore. They could sell it as a return to the original premise. I’ve put on a lot of weight during pandemic, and am now looking down the barrel of a hard return to normal; I’d *kill* to have her resources. As with everything about her life, it’s just such a waste!
