    White Bear was an ultimate mind fuck that couldn't easily be predicted. Until the end, you thought she was the victim, you rooted for her. Then the truth was unraveled in a shocking fashion. At the end, the reality of the mob mentality hit you. After the episode, you are left contemplating whether or not you'd approve of the never ending public mental torture of someone who did something horrible. This was no White Bear.

    I'm with you guys. Andrew Scott did a phenominal job, but the plot and story were subpar. This was not "Black Mirror." Black Mirror is at its best when it has a Twilight Zone feel with twists and you end the episode contemplating what you just saw. The plot was clear early on, so there were no twists or surprises and I certainly didn't spend time thinking about it afterwards. I mean, in summary, a dude looked at a notification and got into a car accident, killing his fiancee. He blamed himself and wanted the owner of the software to know. In the end, he was killed due to his actions. Message - don't text and drive. Meh. ok. That's not Black Mirror high grade material for me.

    S08.E02: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

    Funny enough, that was my least favorite scene. Simply because the girl had a facial scar and it was too obvious of a connection. Had she not had the scar, I would have liked it more.

    You mean the BIG BAD villain of the season that gets defeated by.....getting shot in the foot? *eye rolls*

    S11.E05: The Tsuranga Conundrum

    I had to pause because I was laughing so hard when the Doctor said, "SNAP!" at her and the pilot saying the same thing at the same time. Even though the overall writing desperately needs improvement, it's these little blink and you miss it moments that crack me up.

    S11.E02: The Ghost Monument

    I missed the first episode because it doesn't show in my country :(, but after some *ahem* creative solutions I was able to see the second. I'm not sure what I think. I love JW as the Doctor but it seemed a bit too "oh no! we're in danger!... safe.... oh no! we're in danger again!" Not very big on actual plot, just them constantly getting out of the next jam. I was 100% on board with a new Doctor and showrunner, but I don't like the new theme or the new TARDIS.

    S08.E13: Do Not Send Us Astray

    A summary of my viewing: Who is this chick? Wow. She's a bitch. Who the fuck is she? Am I supposed to know her? I thought they lost their doctor? Seriously, who is this bitch? A bunch of fighting. I have no idea what's going on. YES! I finally passed that hard stage in Candy Crush! That took me a while. woohoo! More fighting. Who got hit? Is that Tara? Who hit her? (husband: "blondie dude"). Oh, OK. *shrug* Who's this big dude again? I think I'm supposed to care about him. I don't know who he is. Why are people turning? Wait a minute. Did they just seriously change a major plot point of the show? (husband: "yeah, I guess you can now get infected just by their blood" Me: "No, that's bullshit. Rick like got a whole pint in his mouth multiple times" husband: "oh yeah. I don't know. I have no idea what's going on") Heh... zombie fall down the stairs. funny. Hold up, an entire packed floor of sleeping people and none of them wake up to that? Come on, now. I have no idea who these people are. I don't care who these people are. I have no clue what's going on. Back to Candy Crush. Not even joking...

    S08.E11: Dead or Alive Or

    Last week I wasn't all that excited to watch this so I waited. Then this week I figured I should watch it so I'm not too far behind. This used to be a show that I Could. Not. Miss. You guys... Half way through I looked at my husband and said, "You know, I wouldn't care if you turned this off right now and we just never watched this again." He replied, "Go ahead."
  9. Apparently the sociopath dude that was the focus of the show was killed. Good riddance. http://people.com/crime/natalee-holloway-case-man-says-cremated-teen-killed-attempted-kidnapping/?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&xid=socialflow_twitter_peoplemag&utm_campaign=peoplemagazine

    The Best of Days

    I haven't watched in years because...well.. it's awful now, but I saw this thread and had to check it out. I agree with everything you said. Jack was life. I loved him so much. I remember the first scene I ever saw: I was a kid and my younger brother was watching two guys fight on a rooftop (Jack and Steve - I think). We thought it was so cool and we were both hooked. Also, I will never forget Isabella's death. That was one of the most beautiful things I've (still) ever seen on TV. It's interesting reading the thread and seeing a theme. I know the 80's era of "super couples" are long gone, but I didn't realize how "romance novel" the storylines were. I mean every storyline back then was taken right out of a housewife's dream book. Bad boy is irredeemable until he meets the good girl he can't live without. *sigh* Now it's all musical chair couples. yuck. No wonder the ratings are in the trash. Seriously, producers, go to your local library and pick up any romance novel - let's get that magic back.

    S06.E08: Robert's Story

    This seems to validate the two month theory. This was what Kathryn posted a few days after he died (copied from one of the article links above). Bolded for emphasis. "I don’t know how to start what is going to be the most painful facebook post I will ever write. I know this is late and I would like to apologize to everyone that I haven’t been able to reach out to all of you before it was released to facebook. On Wednesday, November 15, 2017, the love of my life, my best friend, my closest confidant, Robert Buchel passed away suddenly. I wish I could say that my heart was broken or even shattered, but in reality it is just gone. My heart died along with him. Our future together died along with him. Next year we were going to be getting married in Walt Disney World and have our own Disney Fairytale Wedding. We were going to start a family. We were going to grow old together. Everything we were ever going to be can now never be. He did not deserve to go this way and this was not his time. 14 years together is not enough and although many people say it’s better to love the time you have than to mourn the time you don’t: no offense but screw you. Rob had a hard life and in the last 2 months he finally had hope for the life he always wanted. This was a robbery beyond words. And thanks to those of you who have reached out to me, I realize now that this robbery is more dispicable than I thought. The memories and the love that I have been seeing for him has been overwhelming. I am overjoyed at how much love he had given but also received from all of you. I am also angered beyond words that he’s not here to continue to love and be loved. And even moreseo I am saddened that he died not realizing how much love you all really had for him. Rob suffered from never realizing how good a man he was and always felt inadequate and a failure. Thank you to all of you for validating my love for him. I knew what kind of soul he had but could never convince him of how truly special he was. A person like him should never have to die this way and certainly not this young and most definitely not when his life was about to begin. Arrangements have not been made yet, but his mother and I will be settling things here in Texas as we wait for his remains. Once we have him back, we will bring him home and I promise you that I will notify you when his memorial is scheduled. You all meant so much to him and I thank you all for being there. Please keep his mom and family and friends in your thoughts. This has been difficult for all of us. But most of all, please do this for me: take lessons from him. Every morning he would tell me or text me “good morning angel”. Every phone call ended with “I love you.” Every night he would text me or tell me “Goodnight my love.” In fact the night before he passed he told me “If I don’t wake up tomorrow please know that I have always loved you.” Tell that person you love that you love them. The only consolation I have right now is that we were together and that his last words of peace to me were how he felt about me and how I felt about him. And when he did pass, he was not alone. I was there holding his hand. Thank you to the doctors and nurses who worked tirelessly for almost three hours to bring him back to me. Although I do not know your names, please understand your efforts will not be forgotten. I still have his phone on and his facebook is still live. I will see your messages to him and I will try to respond, You can also contact me directly as well. Thank you all for loving him."

    S20.E06: The Heroin Triangle: Chapter 6

    That nagging mother is terrible. True colors are coming out. Lady, I get that you are continuously lied to, that would set me on edge for everything too, but man.... you've crossed over to just being a bitch.
  13. This is completely disgusting. I'm sorry her family is hurting right now but they essentially piled the blame on Rose. No. Suicide does not work that way. Your precious daughter had severe mental illness and the blame for her taking her own life is solely on her. Rose isn't a saint and doesn't claim to be, but this is just gross.
