    Property Brothers

    Ha - I had an Irish Setter lap dog! Lots of room and fences make sense. Bringing a dog along on house tours strike me as a bit much. Maybe it was just this particular pooch that sent me over the edge. I love all dogs but this thing seriously looked like a wet rat. Always tugging at the leashing, panting and yipping.

    Agggghhhh. Tonight's new episode - "Fixer Upper For Dog Lovers" - worked every last nerve in my body. I hate people whose lives revolve around their pets. In this case, a ratty little miniature schnauzer named Bella. "She pretty much rules the house!" chuckles the pathetic husband, apparently unaware that this cliche has been used by every pet owner on every HGTV show since 2009. Mom keeps a notebook of all of Bella's furry friends, including their age. Awwwww. And of course she is carried to every showing to make sure she likes the house too. This entire episode looks like it was filmed in Queens or Staten Island. The houses are all 3 feet apart, with white wrought iron handrails and picture windows. And ridiculously expensive. Likely a Russian enclave, since the woman's mom was an old-school Russian and kind of charming actually.

    That says all I need to know about V-man. Total sour grapes. He came in LAST on a "meaningless" show. Nice job.

    What especially annoyed me was every time he got one wrong - and some of them were $2000 payoffs - was that arrogant shrug he always gave afterwards. Like "Got it wrong but who cares? I'm Viraj!" Hated Lilly when the tournament started but I think she loosened up a bit over the days and by today I was able to enjoy her performance.

    People would kill for eyebrows like that these days. Despite her lying and overall stupidity, that girl was gorgeous. Fabulous cheekbones, drama brows and perfect, even features. Of course, the meth will destroy that in no time flat.

    I had forgotten about the tragic case of the derailed prison wedding. So sad. Girl was so excited about marrying her "fiance" on Valentine's Day. You know...the fiance who was in jail for attempted murder? Who wouldn't jump at the chance?

    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    I've now seen so many iterations and rehashes and re-creations of the Cal Harris case that my opinion has gone from "guilty" to "not guilty" over the years. Of course, the blood is an issue...especially the 3'x6' (according to police) stain in the garage. The defense is like, well who knows when that occurred...could have been years ago. Honestly in my entire life I've never had a 3'x6' bloodstain anywhere at any time. I do believe the better-late-than-never witness. He's hauling hay for a living, working hard and likely not following the news that closely.

    Speaking from experience, I can assure you that there is a very real thing called "chemo brain". Fuzzy and disorganized. Sometimes I can't remember the name of someone I just spoke to! Not sure she had been getting chemo, but I'm sure she was on some sort of meds which makes her win even more amazing. When he said "The Iceman Cometh" instead of "The Postman Always Rings Twice" I almost died. Seriously. I know you get nervous and can just blurt out anything but...?

    I don't dislike him but he has no personality, not even a bad one. I think if he ends up in Tournament of Champions he's going to get his clock cleaned...he's not all that. Ten minutes go by without his buzzing in, and his daily winnings are respectable but not mind-blowing.

    Dear Dateline: If you really want to make your Friday Night Mysteries true mysteries, you need to find a better way to disguise the fact that the person you're interviewing is, in fact, incarcerated. Five minutes into the show and I knew the ex-husband was "the guy". Blurred background, that telltale blue prison shirt, and the same extreme close-up every time. Kind of takes the whodunit-ness out of the whole thing. Agree with posters above...not entirely sure he did done it, but he seems the most likely. And shame on him if he gobbled up her quesadilla!

    Each of these rooms seem so overdesigned, overdecorated, overaccessorized. Jampacked with tchotchkes, trinkets, trumpets, and shiny things. On the walls, the floors, the tables, the windows and now...the ceilings. We pretty much only see one or two rooms per episode...can't imagine what the overall effect of the entire home is when you actually walk through. I get that they're trying to capture the "New Orleans spirit" or whatever but man, it's really suffocating. Normally I like the rooms on regular Property Brothers shows, but this is crazy.

    I agree that Mr. Chinese Elm Karate Chop was a dick, but JJ told him that 'your tree was interfering with their enjoyment of their property' but how would he know this? There was no testimony from either side that the neighbors informed him of this, and asked him to trim the tree or offered to do it themselves. Seems like the first thing a neighbor would do. It was nice to see Hilde the gardener again, though!

    I hope they continue to investigate the wife. She seemed oddly angry/happy after her rival disappeared. Doubt she was out in the desert doing the dirty work, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if she knew it was going to happen or knew afterwards. In addition to the ludicrous "she was abusing Liberty" charges, I was also laughing when he told detectives they only "kissed" and "touched each other thru their clothes". Yes. Of course. Completely believable.

    Yes they are. Which leads me to wonder where the new entryway to Drew's place is? Based on the last episode, I guess it's in the living room because it appears that's where Koda and Drew entered (they walked past that hideous 70's shelf/etagere thing on their way to the kitchen). But it's never indicated on the architectural rendering they seem to show every 8 minutes and it drives me crazy LOL. I would have liked to have seen a bit about the planning of where to put the door, getting it approved, choosing an appropriate door, installation, etc. Seems kind of like an important decision. Was not a fan of the over-plastering of the brick fireplace. A few patches here and there, but most - if not all - of it was purely decorative and while the guy did a great job, there was just too much of it. More bricks, less plaster please!
  15. I don't understand why they wouldn't paint the wood (I know...horrors!) the same gray as the rest of the trim. It looked awful. Then I remembered their own house has the same treatment.
