  1. Didn’t know this show was still on the air. Sorry to hear this. Sorry to hear that late night TV is losing another (rare) female host.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    Ha! I was thinking the same thing--maybe he wanted a apartment for himself in the city while the wife could squawk and complain out on Long Island. He can come home on the weekends. That wife was just awful. "All of these windows, and I can't see the ocean." "I'm not willing to compromise." I'm sure some of her behavior was exaggerated for the cameras. But I'm sure she's a selfish, demanding woman every day. The husband didn't throw her under the bus, but when he said, "You really don't need an office," that made it sound like she's a SAHM. Nothing wrong with that, but she certainly doesn't need a dedicated office. Unless she runs a business. --Inspired by the "say something nice about actors you hate" thread: She had gorgeous eyes. The husband must be making serious bank if they can afford a mortgage that's between $5-8000 per month.

    Law & Order

    I actually meant the new youts. LOL. No, I did mean the new "ones." My iPad autocorrected (badly) for me. I loved it when Van Buren would chastise the detectives with just a look. Especially if one of them would ask her, "So you think we should follow up on that?" Sometimes she'd add a sarcastic remark, but often the stare was enough all by itself.

    House Hunters: Buying in the USA

    My first impression was that the husband (boyfriend?) was gay, but then I wondered if I was jumping to a hasty conclusion just because he was stylish and didn’t boss his wife around.

    Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    So it’s a bit of dead wood, eh? I’ll see myself out.

    Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    But I sure do miss the days of water cooler shows. I remember going to work at a busy hospital the day after a Seinfeld episode aired, and most of the staff members on my floor would be able to joke about what had happened. And back in the '80s, I'd talk to my friends at school about what was happening on The Thorn Birds or in the TV movie where Phoebe Cates asked the three women which one of those bitches was her mother. Those moments were great.

    The NBA

    I keep hearing rumblings that LeBron wants to be seen as a nice guy but becomes a psychopath with his teammates and superiors. Although if he pretends to be nice, doesn’t that make him a sociopath? Anyway, as a LeBron apologist, I’d love to know the truth. I wish I were like Skoda on Law and Order and could force him to sit down with me for an in-depth psychological interview. Maybe it’s the syndrome of being an elite athlete who’s been worshipped your entire life, so you’re an arrogant asshole. Most professional athletes don’t escape that one.

    All American

    Monday? I don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing. I’m very out of touch with TV schedules because I DVR everything. I barely know what stations TV shows come on these days.
  9. I missed that post, too. So thanks. Good for Kim: standing up for hers of and negotiating the salary she deserved. Sure, SJP was technically the star of the show, but Kim was a fan favorite and critical favorite. The show and movies wouldn’t be the same without her. This incident is telling: So if Kim’s husband didn’t come, why wouldn’t any of her co-workers say, ‘Hey, girl. Come stay with us. We’ll use this time to bond as a cast—the way the 3 of us are already doing.’

    Movie Star Crushes

    Yes! And he's an equal opportunity seeker: women of various ages, races, socioeconomic status, etc. I don't know if that makes him even more charming, or if he's just a flirtatious scumbag. But yeah, he can get it.

    Race & Ethnicity on TV

    That looks really good. And you’re right. It has the look and tone of an ABC drama. Will definitely give it a watch.

    The Good Doctor in the Media

    This. Especially Lea. I have nothing against the actress, but Lea's scenes add nothing to the show. In fact, her scenes with Shawn represent wasted time that he could be spending with his fellow residents, either in or out of the hospital. He barely interacted with Claire this season, and that's one of my favorite relationships. The show just doesn't know what to do with Glassman, and his scenes drag. Writers, either figure out what to do with Glassman or put him out of his misery (and ours).

    Wahh!! I know some people love CI and SVU as much as the Mothership, but I could never muster any love for the new use.

    The Passage

    Mark-Paul’s shows do not do well on Fox. RIP. And I’m still sad about Pitch.

    Party Of Five (2019)

    Interesting and timely premise, but everyone looks so sad. In every scene. Is this going to be even more of a downer than the original?
