    Unpopular Opinions: The Cheese Stands Alone

    I think for most women in the industry, it's really hard to look young and have zero body fat. Jennie has had some work done which is too bad, since she was one of the best looking of the bunch. I wonder if the blonde for Tori is a Hollywood push- which is too bad. I find the less "bottle blonde" to be more attractive. However, motherhood isn't always kind and Tori has been aged by all those births. She needs to choose her haircolor very carefully (nothing too extreme)

    S04.E03: Keep Calm and Party On

    I am trying to savor it... only one episode at a time. So-hard. Luckily, there are enough graphic parts that I can't wait it during normal hours (since I have kids). I've been trying to avoid spoilers too.

    S04.E03: Keep Calm and Party On

    a few things that left me scratching my head/annoying hubs with my thoughts. 1. I get that the congressman was jonesing for a cigarette but given the fact that the he's already almost been attacked why would he bother to leave? Can you postmates that stuff? 2. Messing up the congressman would have some serious repercussions to the Hillbilly Twins. And it wouldn't give them their ultimate goal of the money. Why didn't they just extort him for cash instead? 3. I'm not liking Gabriel's vengeance squad at all. They are just too reckless with who they kill. Do they really think they should kill every suspect? 4. What level of movie star is Dick? Why would spring breakers care about him?

    S04.E01: Spring Break Forever

    I am trying to savor this season and resisting the urge to binge. A few comments: yes, Logan does have that stark face look that often comes with having no body fat. I think Courtney Cox had this too in CougarTown. But the scene between them was pretty racy (enough that I had to quickly shut the tv when my little wandered down after bedtime). In general, I've always been a Logan fan mostly due to his wit- though I have to handwave all his psychotic jackassery (remember the Bum Fights and episode one where he pretty much threatened Veronica). As for "Big Dick", I can see a town like Neptune just handwaving his jailtime while still holding fast to the class distinctions for Veronica/Keith.

    Seasons 8-10: The Post College Years

    Yes! Remember Dylan's suits too? It felt a lot like some "30-something" show vs a show about post-college life. This was around the same time as Reality Bites. Everyone should be working at The Gap or some crappy office manager job at best. And Steve/Janet never seem to worry about bills and the cost of the kid (are they living rent free in the Walsh house). It seems that the only "contemporary" thing about the show was the music and the hideous Limited Express outfits that the girls wear. Chucky Frankenshoes forever!

    Seasons 8-10: The Post College Years

    The Gang is just a year younger than me, but I never understood how "adult" they were towards mid college and beyond. Yes, they have access to all sorts of funds, but in the LA area, very few post-grad kids have their own businesses (newspaper, designer shoppe, PR firm, law firm, night club). Most were starting out- which was one of the few things that Melrose got right. In that same place, I didn't have many friends who were so "domesticated" (kids, engaged). Why is Kelly always getting married? She's so young! Just date someone for a few months already!!

    Did both Tori and Jennie's (ex) husbands cheat on them? I know Dean did but there seems to be hints that Peter F did as well.

    Seasons 4-7: The College Years

    This is a very fuzzy, but I think Kelly's dad bailed on moving back to LA to be with her. I think the check was earnest money for a house or apartment. What's surprising with the coke addiction is that Kelly saw how it ruined Jackie (and her) life. You'd think she would do something else. I don't even know if when Kelly rehab'd if anyone brought up the correlation of Jackie's addiction. NO.ONE looks like a college student. Dylan is wearing a vest and linen suit most days. I went to a CU btw, and almost every day, I wore a pair of jean or shorts and a Haynes beefy white T. One year I decided to buy some cute clothes from Contempo (I know!) and everyone grilled me if I was going on a date after class. The Indecent Proposal made no sense. I don't even know why Ginger and Val had that stupid scheme. It seemed that Ginger was jealous that Val was seeming to fit in.

    Unpopular Opinions: The Cheese Stands Alone

    From what I gathered, Jennie and Tiffani were very close after Jennie stopped being a bitch about it. Even Jennie's other show featured a character named Valeria in homage to TAT. I'm not sure what happened, but my guess is that it had to do with taking sides during Jennie and her ex hubs' divorce (I think TAT was on the same show). There is some clip from I think a drag show where Tori and Jennie are total bitches about TAT. I'm embarrassed that I know this readily, but had to look up how to do quadradic equations when helping my son with algebra.

    There were very few real male-female friendships on the show. Andrea seemed to have the most- not sure because she had more life experience or because she was considered "sexless" so none of the men liked her? My UO is how the heck was every man or woman not in love with Valerie. That girl is gorgeous and light years ahead of Kelly or Donna.

    Seasons 4-7: The College Years

    I'd like to think there was some depth and underlying threads that the writers used regarding the relationship between Dylan and Kelly. However, I think it was more to add some soapy goodness and have a bit of a rivalry brewing (esp since minus Rique Brenda spend most of the time pining for Dylan). In my mind most of the issues between Dylan and Kelly came because Dylan didn't really respect her. He didn't think she was intelligent or thoughtful. He seemed very attracted to her and I think he loved that she came with zero family drama. For Kelly, Dylan was a wonderful prize that validated her desirability. She had a long-term crush on him, didn't really date anyone in the beginning of the show (after suffering through her bad-girl reputation), and then had a very humiliating break up with Jake on Melrose Place. Neither seemed very committed either, as they were quick to get their flirt on or even let the other assume they had cheated (like Dylan/Kelly in Paris during the summer, or Kelly with John Sears). The "what about my feelings" rant from Kelly regarding the proposal is very true to form. She's extremely selfish and self centered. Plus she was just 21 (even if she looked 28). I can see how a girl who is that young would want some type of separate conversation with her "great love" about how he's moved on, still will love her, hopes she's ok with this decision.

    Seasons 4-7: The College Years

    College season one had a few classes where they all were together (the women's studies class I think). It would have made more sense that everyone had a similar part time job (like the campus café or book store). I guess that is what the PPAD was supposed to be, until it became a showcase for musicians and Fox. The show had some potential areas like the radio station, newspaper, and sorority/frat to have mixing with other people. But it seemed limited to the special episodes only vs actually expanding the cast or making things more realistic. Is there a show that did the high school to college jump well? Maybe Veronica Mars but that was only one year of college.

    Season 10, episodes 13 to 27

    Thank you to all you smart LAW-yers out there. This was 10X more interesting than the episode. Granted the writers and cast didn't care anymore but I like the one running thread that whenever a Hillster (or Hillster adjacent) gets called out for acting incorrectly they immediately act like my 8 year old and start giving excuses of why THEY should be given some type of loophole. Client- you stole my money! Give it back Matt- it was for an engagement ring Client - (in Matt's world)- oh, well, then, just pay it back whenever you can. or Judge- please tell your clients you can't work for a month Matt- I'm a small practice, I'm not a big firm Judge (in Matt's world)- oh, well then, nevermind. That wouldn't be fair.

    Season 10, episodes 13 to 27

    Can someone explain the retainer portion to me? I've only dealt with it when I worked at a PR firm when a client was super slow to pay. In our case, they paid us $5000 and we billed against that and then when it was close to being done, we'd ask for more money. However, I heard on TV shows that an attorney is "on retainer". Does that mean that attorney is collecting a specific amount even if no work is done, just so he will be certain to jump at a moments' notice? I'm not CPA but wouldn't you need to use funds from your company for company expenses? If Matt had earned the $15K doesn't he pay himself a salary or use the money for company purchases? And if Gina just hands him a check for $15K and he deposits it into the bank account, will he need to show how the hell he got that money?

    S10.E12: Nine Yolks Whipped Lightly

    I love it when the actual attorneys (which I'm assuming you are) chime in about Matt! Here is what I don't get. Matt is basically broke. Buying at over the top engagement ring for Princess Kelly is basically setting them up for a lifestyle that he can't afford. And at that time, $15K is a LOT for a ring... Mr. Curly proposed in 2001 I think and he paid about $2000 for it.
