  1. Yes and something I’ve noticed in the “previously On” and the ads they’ve been playing to death is they KEEP showing Kevin telling Randall his worst day was the day they brought him home and NEVER show Randall telling Kevin that His father died ashamed of him. Thus making Randall look like the victim when they both said some heinous shit And Randall is the one who fought dirty first. Plus Kevin actually had a look on his face after he said it like he knew it was wrong And went too far but I don’t recall the same from Randall. I think Randall fatigue is really fueling a lot of this Discussion. I mean look how defensive they all got when Randall Figured out the medicine thing. It’s like they were al flinching and ready to be verbally slapped. On that note I also have Kate fatigue and I was just WAITING For her to go all pissy and self involved when Kevin told her about the babies so that was a shock. Maybe they realized she was getting pretty damn annoying last year too. Cannot believe Kevin became my favorite last year and I never would have seen that coming when I started the show.
  2. Yeah I noticed that but decided I’d need to let that go. It’s also jarring that Randall goes to sit by her on the bed and they Both talk about how “safe” they are and I’m thinking... she just ate INSIDE a restaurant and walked around a grocery store without a mask.... she’s not safe now. Giving them a pass though.
  3. So Randall’s answer to his family never talking about what it felt like for him is to shut them out completely and not talk about it? Is he punishing them? That’s growth? And they totally made up for “limited commercial Interruptions” in that first hour in the second hour huh?
  4. I enjoyed it enough to be sad there won’t be a second season. Was anyone Else bothered by how much BACK and forth there was with locations? Like stay still people and quit splitting up! One minute they are at the hospital and then they are back at Daimon’s place and as soon as someone leaves they call them and are like “where are you we need you BACK here.” So frustrating. Some of the actions of the characters made me yell at the tv. Questions on final episode below look away if you haven’t watched yet: And when Yen And Ana go after Daimon and Gabriella why do they split up? She’s like “you get her and I’ll get him” but they didn’t know where they were and at that moment Daimon and Gabriella were actually in the SAME place. Was Ana thinking she’d draw him off? Just made no sense to me. And that last shot of the crib at family dinner made it look like the baby was gone and the next shot Yen has her so...are we supposed to think he took her? To raise her in a nurturing environment? But wouldn’t she be better off with a Dad, Aunt, grandma and whatever the heck keeper and Dr. Hastings are? and Skinner As dad! Yes please. Dammit I want a second season. But when he said let’s go see your brother and sister did he mean someone else? because Daimon is kinda her dad and...oh gross.

    The West Wing

    It was so good to see everyone! I loved it and probably the first time ever I LIKED the commercials as much as the show. 🙂 Only sharing some critique because that’s what we do here: I rewatched the original episode this morning and I don’t think the conversations in the special felt as smooth or natural Or spontaneous as the show but I think because it was obviously more of a stage play. It was still wonderful to see them and I wasn’t expecting so many of the other characters to appear and that was an awesome surprise. Rob Lowe looks amazing and doesn’t seem to age and yet it was a little harder for me to believe the “wow that’s amazing” earnestness that Sam had back in the day from an obviously much more mature man. It looked like Rob Lowe had the script next to him in one scene and I thought ..did he not go off book? Then I thought “am I a nerd? and Then I realized they probably had it there on purpose. I do love Sterling but he didn’t convey that unspoken thing that Leo always had which was that he was slightly exasperated but loved these goofballs. I will say it’s a testament to how good it was that when they switched to the footage from the actual episode at the end it took a second for it to register because it felt so natural. I love these guys. I smiled through the whole thing. With all that said I DIDN'T REALLY CARE About Any of The little things and loved every second of it. West Wing is my comfort blanket.
  6. You’re KIDDING. I spent a good amount of time just staring at her during one segment because her blush/bronzer wasn’t blended at ALL and it looked horrible. I was just popping in here to see if I was the only one who found her annoying. I wanted to watch for New Orleans but this show is awful and she just really thinks she’s all that and a bag of chips when she just isn’t. The houses aren’t that great. The staging segments are boring and they don’t show enough New Orleans uniqueness, it could be set anywhere.
  7. I think they did a disservice to Lori by having Hope show up ok. It means she decided her son was a killer And did what she did to him based on circumstantial evidence, a short story, and a 5 year old getting angry enough to want to hit a kid over the head with a bowling ball. Made her less sympathetic than she was in the book. I really didn’t enjoy this. I even skipped a few episodes straight to the last two and I don’t feel like I missed anything. Chris was pretty though. And Michelle did an amazing job.
  8. I’m watching now and I have read the book and wondered how they could make 8 episodes out Of a fairly short story. The answer is very very slowly.....man this show is slow. My love for Chris and Michelle and wanting to see how they handle the end is keeping me around. Sooooo slow.

    S01:E23: Sacrifice

    Oh! Those cut lines would have made Laurel seem so much better! As it was I was thinking why the hell are these people risking their lives for PAPERWORK?! I thought she looked ridiculous hanging back and then running through a burning Crumbling building with a stack of files and I got mad all over again that Tommy died for that stupidity. Got in the mood for some season 1 arrow recently....
  10. Roswell was the first thing I thought of too! But I wasn’t sure if that’s what they were going for....
  11. That IS the first time I’ve heard it stated that Jason asked to leave and I find it deeply suspicious. I read a ton of articles after season 4 finales and you’d think with the backlash they would have made that point to save themselves. So I just found out in this thread the show was cancelled. Can’t say I’m surprised or disappointed. I couldn’t make it through the first episode of season 5 and even in my extreme quarantine boredom I can’t make myself try again. I can’t view it as the show I fell in love with after the storytelling mess they created. I look forward to seeking the actors in other things!
  12. Well I started crying as soon as Jack’s voice came out of the boom box. I found an old recording that had 10 seconds of my dads laugh on it and I played that thing over and over with shaking hands I can’t even imagine hearing his voice again and having him speaking to me. Just when I think they can’t pull any more tears out of me and I’ve adjusted to Jacks death they get me. Good job show. I like it when the big 3 are together. I hope whatever makes Kevin and Randall stop speaking doesn’t last too long. And I love that Y’all are calling older Kevin silver fox because I actually said that out loud when he appeared on my screen.

    S01.E09: Echoes

    Well in the first few episodes when they moved there they said his school started after theirs, not for a few more weeks or so, so he had free time when they didn’t but we are way past that now. I thought for sure when Elle left she didn’t take the crown key with her so when he pulled it out of her pocket I was like really? As apparently Locke’s are the only people she can’t take the key from forcefully they should be the ones to hold them at all times. Very very stupid.
  14. I turned it off 15 minutes in. I think I’m still bitter. We are stuck with Alice and Josh (I assume Josh will show at some point) and new Penny but no Q. I just can’t. Never thought I’d miss him so much but...definitely something missing. Maybe I’ll keep checking out the threads and how things are going with the show as the season progresses and try again some other time. I do miss Margo and Eliot.
  15. All these conversations have been interesting to read. I’m just coming in to point out a part that made me lol but was maybe unintentional on writers part...when Darnell asks Randall if he does anything besides run and he says “I was thinking of getting a peloton....” ha. Oh Randall.
