  1. So, I have thought about this for several days and as heart warning and seemingly touching as Jamie's actions seemed to be, it was actually really, really immature. "I want her to have another chance like I had...but no, I don"t want to go home" is pretty childish. There are consequences for every decision/ask and she wanted an ask without consequences. I have nothing against Jamie and she has been a good cheftestant-this is not an attack on her, just a commentary on what she wanted. This is the way the game is played each and every week of each and every season-someone goes home, and so
  2. Altho he seems to be a very nice person, it was past time for Chris to go home. I was very impressed with Gabe's dish and the fact that he knew not to make another mole given the relative lack of time and the complexity. An I was a little shocked that Dawn was able to produce given her time management issues in the past. Never "got" what was funny about Fred Armisen and still don't after his appearance. Something is really off about this season...it feels very slow and almost boring. I assume it is all the COVID related changes like the fact they are not running around Whole Foo
  3. This show has always had a pretty high content of misery, but this will be unpleasant to watch...maybe they could couple it with Rebecca's cognitive decline and Kevin's career tanking! Was anyone able to see anything in the "Rising Star" article....or even what magazine it was in? Maybe Randall's rising star can crash as well by 2030-let's go all in on misery. LOL
  4. I ABSOLUTELY agree---annoying as hell...... but maybe it means less Madison......ok by me. Yeah, like she couldnt find a more appropriate time to discuss her truly regrettable decision than at another child's wedding! But the acting was excellent, even if it should have been in another episode LOL-great point, fellow dinosaur. And while you are right, and most people knew that trick, I never actually did that even with the final episode of MASH
  5. Whatever it is, and whomever is to blame, we can all agree that it is just really, really, NOT going to be pleasant watching their marriage explode, dissolve and/or wither away, especially with how loving they were in this episode. A couple of things from the flashback(s): 1. Kevin really hasn't aged in those 5 years and Kate also looked exactly the same. 2. Kevin and Madison must be getting along pretty darn well because she was awfully friendly or she forgot that she was supposed to be mad. 3. There must have been a pretty busy baby sitter who had all 4 of those kids sinc
  6. So, I missed a couple episodes....what the hell happened to this show? It used to have some pretty decent cases and good interaction among the characters and a little relationship drama laced in with it-this episode was just a total soap opera. Were there any medical cases....other than Lea doing surgery? Even the 'shroom guy was really just a chance for Resnick (still CTB "lite" to me) and Park to work on their issues.
  7. And they didnt even have her do one of those World War sketches where she sends weird letters with Mikey Day which they seem to do with every female host with a British accent! Funny episode...I was ok that it was non-topical and they had several clasically SNL over-the-top sketches like the dad shooting off his junk sketch. It wasn't Dan Ackroyd as Julia Child over-the-top funny, but it was pretty good! If that is not farewall from Cecily, I don't know how she'll top it when she does leave. Same with Pete. And there is no way Kate leaves without a big send off......not Lorne dancing
  8. You got it sorta right-chocolate covered raisins are great, but Raisinets are all waxy and gross...and the raisins are way too small. Like the reference (and the movie) and is kinda what I was trying to say above-I can see Kevin saying "you complete me" but cant believe he will mean it when it comes to Madison....but I think he means it about Sophie.
  9. Then you haven't seen Jerry Maguire! In the video taken at the Jerry/Dorothy practically shotgun wedding, there is a scene showing us all the doubts he has and whether it is relief or true joy or just doing the right thing or rushing into things or circumstances aligning rather than true love.....sound familiar. Some of the parallels were pretty true: 1.Randall/Beth do give off some Cuba/Regina (really Rod/Marcy) vibe from the movie as a couple that has each other's back and can keep them very "real" by calling them out on their bullshit; 2 Kevin clearly has a need to make the h
  10. I enjoyed the concept of the episode and it got a little misty as the front line workers thanked them (and vice versa), but I found this episode and frankly the whole season, very low energy. Maybe its the fact that they are not running around Whole Foods or the extra safety protocols, but it is all coming off as low energy....and even a little boring. I think another factor is that these guys are all exec chefs and, to some extent, have made a name for themselves and are trying to not blow it and hence are playing it a little safer than others....or maybe they have just seen past seasons
  11. For Covid reasons, they are in a hotel and it is my understanding that each person has his or her own room. I might have read it in the build up to the season when they talked about Covid protections like a bigger kitchen (altho they are still literally running into each other), separate plates for each judge in quickfires etc.... As I said, i didn't care about the house drama, but I did like seeing who did the cooking in each house since it gives you some idea which cheftestants like to cook and which ones the others respect etc.... Does mean we miss out on drunken hot tub scenes...
  12. Random thoughts 1. Gabriel just looked PISSED. Might be a little jerky, but he looked PISSED. 2. Again, it is clear that there are a few good chefs, but only Shota, Dawn, Gabe and maybe Sara seem to be turning out inspirational food on a level we have seen in prior seasons....and noone seems to be throwing out really amazing stuff like in prior seasons. On the other hand, I might be somewhat jaded by coming off of an All Star season and maybe they will kick it up a notch now that they need to do more than just survive the weakest cheftestants (i.e. out run you, not the bear). 3
  13. Although some might argue (despite not tasting the dishes) that the sad looking and unoriginal tots were worse than the poorly cooked and sad looking wings, the other eliminations appeared to be very clear cut and totally justified. I understand how it looks, but maybe those were just the worst dishes of the week-are you disappointed that those cheftestants (regardless of gender or race) just didn't perform or are you advocating that the show allow gender and/or race and/or national origin to factor into the decision? Personally, remembering that we do not get to taste the food and that under
  14. I agree with all of the above....but I am finding it boring. Everyone is being pretty careful...its almost like they have watched all the past seasons and figured out what NOT to do and how NOT to act. On the other hand, the food has seemed good, but not spectacular and other than Gabe's dish last week and a couple of Shota's the judges haven't gotten too excited either. The eliminations have been pretty non-controversial.....Jamie was a pretty easy call this week since no judge seemed to enjoy her dish or even think that she challenged herself very much, and only Gabriel's tots were in the ru
  15. Melissa Villasenor was on with Seth and did a killer Kristen Wiig that kinda blew Seth away. If you just want to watch that, it is near the end....6 or 7 minutes in
