    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Seriously? None of you have ever given your kids Kraft macaroni and cheese?

    I actually think that car vending machines are kind of clever!

    Things That Happen On TV But Not In Real Life

    And a related question, do people really have a photo of a loved one, usually dead, in the sun visor?

    Things That Happen On TV But Not In Real Life

    In my county cops will take reports immediately, and enter them into NCIC as soon as they have all the necessary info. Even if it's a 21-year-old - it's just too risky for the police to ignore a missing person when they could be facing a lawsuit down the road if something has happened that could have been prevented. If a missing adult is located and is fine, and left or went incommunicado of their own free will, cops will basically say "Ok, thanks, call your mom" and take no further action (other than removal from the database).

    Also stupid is that school appears to be over for the kids in the family-one is at cheerleading practice and the other is with her boyfriend-but the mom is still teaching a class? What the hey time is it?

    Special: Emotional Aftermath

    I just watched this, and after hearing about how anger is the only acceptable emotion and all others must be suppressed, I'm amazed that there are so many actors in the scientology ranks. You'd think it would be near impossible to act joyful, or sad, for example, when you've never been allowed to experience those emotions for real. Upon further thought, however, maybe that's why they do become actors....so they can freely express emotion. Hmmmmmm.........
  7. Everyone has their own opinions, and mine is that I'm surprised people are bagging on Mike for the turn of phrase he chose. He did terrible things, they have haunted him, and he continues to make amends. Is he supposed to be "haunted" forever? Hasn't anyone here done something terrible that they spent years regretting and being haunted by, and finally decided that in order to live a relatively happy life they need to let go?

    S03.E11: Songbird Road, Part One

    When did we find out that Rebecca knew about Nicky? She seemed upset the whole show that Jack had kept this secret from her, at least to me, so what did I miss?
  9. But on that day, did you immediately know a whole bunch of people at your college that you could sell things to and email?
  10. I'd go with that in a heartbeat, except that we had Christmas and New Years during the 7 weeks (Beth was wrapping Christmas presents, and Randall had to get blueberry (no, I'm NOT saying boo-berry) pie for Beth so her New Years would be "real".
  11. So this most recent episode had a time jump of seven weeks; if we pretend the election was, say, January 15, 7 weeks before that was approximately the end of November/beginning of December, a time at which nobody ever starts going to college. This whole idea that Kate knows a whole bunch of people at "my college", when Toby just had the idea seven weeks ago and the semester hasn't started, or has barely begun if I'm being generous, is ridiculous.

    S03.E10 The Last Seven Weeks

    OMG the speeches. I don't like Randall winning because it's frustrating enough that Kate lives in LA and Big Three are rarely together; this will get worse if Randall's family moves to Philly. The machinations by the show to get them all in the same shot once in awhile will get more and more ridiculous.

    S01.E08: This Young Woman Fought Like Hell

    Thank you! Funny though, I thought he was reconnecting the taillights, knowing that Veronica would describe his vehicle to Terra and Debra as having no taillights. So when they saw a vehicle that might have been his, they would disregard it if it had working taillights.

    S01.E08: This Young Woman Fought Like Hell

    Connie was playing a role. I think she did a good job if you don't get why people love her! I've read all the comments and I still don't know why John was digging a hole, and why that hole had to be in an exact location. Anyone?

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    I'm hesitant to bring this up because of the earlier conversation accusing Joan Lunden of telling us to "warehouse" our elderly parents....but the commercial I hate right now is the one starting with "mom started to lose her words", and ends with "because Dad made us promise to keep Mom at home." First of all, no parent should required his/her kids to make a promise of this nature, and hold them hostage to it no matter what the circumstance. Secondly, TV advertising shouldn't normalize that promise. Sometimes it is just impossible to keep an ill, elderly parent in their home no matter how many Bright Star (or whatever service this is advertising) nurses stop by. It's great that these services are available, but I wish that promise weren't a part of it.
