    I agree with some of your points, mellowyellow, but I thought some of Baiul's jumps were magnificent, even though some (like her inability to do a proper combination) were not acceptable. And I have to disagree on the spins. I think the current scoring system and its emphasis on "add more stuff" has killed the beauty and awesomeness of a great, fast, centered spin in a striking position, which was always one of the most exhilarating moves in skating. I wish a current competitor could get a REALLY big points boost for a spin that's exceptional, like one of Jason Brown's.
  2. I am so going to miss David Rose's face when this show ends.
  3. Who doesn't? (Figure skating fan here.)
  4. Really beautiful. Do shows like this get reviewed in any way? I'm wondering how his reception has been. Anyone else know if his work is referential? I'm not a huge fashion person, but to my uneducated eye it has an original look.
  5. I've become a big fan of this charming show. It has wonderful, skilled acting, good mysteries and a charming, believable 1950s setting. Bingeing FB helped me get through a cold that persisted almost a month. Yesterday, however, I watched the golf themed episode from Season Six and could not believe what appalling bad acting there was, particularly from the guest actress (the daughter/Faye Dunaway character) and the guest actor playing her boyfriend. They both seemed barely professional. It was such a shock, given the normally reliably high quality of the acting on this show. I agree with those who find the Flambeau episodes somewhat tiresome, and I think this is partly due to the mediocre acting from the Flambeau actor. He seems to be trying REALLY hard to be charismatic, and it's just not working. I find Bunty adorable, but really miss Lady Felicia and Sid, who are more interesting, better rounded characters. We've never EVER seen Mrs. McCarthy without a hat on, right?
  6. So this was me, getting ready for bed Thursday night: (Catching my face in the mirror): Wait. Didn't I wear makeup today? (Pause) Oh, right. The Good Place finale.

    Anyone up watching the final? It's a great match so far. There are some nerves, but they're both playing really well, firing away in a lot of great rallies. Psyched that Mugu took the first set, but she has to keep up the pressure. Kenin is NOT going to give in. ********** Give Chris Evert credit. She made note in the first set that Muguruza's play had been so poor last year that she only played nine matches in the last six months or so, and so might be physically wearing down. And, sure enough, Garbine's just not moving as well, and her serve is much weaker. It's looking like Kenin's going to take it.

    I think Kenin is amusingly odd. But I can't warm to her yet. I just feel a bit sorry for her. She is so effing impressive as a competitor, though. That said, I'm totally for Garbine. She's so much fun to watch when she's playing well. I'm actually very proud of Fed for standing up as well as he did to Djoker, being that Djoker is 1) the best player in the world; 2) on his favorite court, which is now slower than when Fed won his last two titles there; 3) and is super on form. Roger was not only injured but hadn't been on form at all. Yet he still played better than I was expecting and put up a decent fight. I wish he had been able to win that first set, though. I think Thiem might be able to give Djoker a tough fight. Not so sure about Zverev.

    Oh, the women's is worse with that irregular hem that tapers right up towards the crotch. Ugh.

    Hi, Rose! Long time since we met on the tennis chat room. Wasn't that fun back then? A lot more gossip! Novak-Roger is going to be gruesome. But I'm still glad Roger beat that turd Sandgren.

    Even though I was rooting for Stan I'm really happy for Sasha. Especially happy for Garbine too.

    Watching Coco v. Kenin and I'm feeling a little sorry for Kenin. Coco is so appealing in many ways, Kenin ... isn't. It's to the point that I'm actually starting to root for Kenin. Or should I say "Sofia," since that's what she prefers?

    *Great to see Naomi and Petra look great in their debuts. *Enjoying how well Coco is playing. Wish it wasn't at Venus's expense. *Serena was impressive, but she looks so off balance so often these days. *What the holy eff is Grigor D wearing? Nike has lost the plot. Please tell me Rafa isn't going to be wearing something from that line.
