    S02.E07: I Want To Know

    I enjoyed that and found it extremely satisfying. I am one of the rare species who enjoyed S2 more than S1. S1 while excellent was really heavy and taxing to watch in parts. I found S2, despite some plot holes and being a tad more sensational took less of a toll on me as a viewer. Nicole was simply brilliant. From the very broken lost woman in S1, to the very messed up person in S2 to her take down of Mary Louise in this episode. She was brilliant. I found her portrayal of Celeste's development wonderful. In the beginning eps of S2 she was a hot mess and then as ML began to push her into a corner, Celeste (although still messy) started subtly growing a bit more of a spine. LOVED that Renata got more to do in S2. I don't find her a cartoon character at all. I found her really believable. Her bravado and loudness aside, she's got a good heart and is "soft" imo which is why she kept Gordon around for so long until the blatant disrespect woke her up finally. To me that's really in character for someone with that personality. They can be tough but also completely soft in some ways. She's not manipulative, sly, passive aggressive in the ML way. She's very in your face. Also really enjoyed ML. She was a sneaky, manipulative, passive aggressive woman who desperately wanted to live in the fake reality she made up but I don't think she was evil in the "Muhahahaha" way. She was just a very sad, unlikeable character who I could see going away quietly when her fake beliefs came crashing down. I believe that she genuinely thinks she loves Celeste and wants to help her (in her mind she probably wants to nab the boys while Celeste goes off and gets treatment and then shows up to hug then every so often). I really loved that Celeste sent the boys to hug her. Celeste didn't believe ML was black and white evil either and for her to see that after having been through so much herself really made me love the character (Celeste). I could understand why Bonnie told Nathan she never loved him. Bonnie was about to confess and set herself free. Why string Nathan (who loves her) along and have him wait for her and support her through the confession ordeal. I can very much see her as someone who would bluntly tell him just so he can move on. Overall excellent show. Loved it.

    Small Talk: The Quiver

    Omg I'm so excited about Big Little Lies I can't decide whether I should hit the spoilers as soon as it airs or surprise myself and wait until I watch it. I just HAVE to know what will happen!!!!!! Anyone here watch that show?

    @Ruby Gillis I think Shoma's visit to Eteri's camp was very much like Bradie going to Mishin's camp. But yes much juicier when it involves Eteri 😂 Vincent's move to Mie Hamada is exciting as well. I read somewhere on a forum that it was difficult for his parents to afford his skating so the deal Mie Hamada helped secure for him was pretty decent.

    Oooh my goodness I'm so relieved. My heart broke for her! I was hoping it would just be a scorched bin or toaster etc So happy they'll be back at it soon. 😊😍🤗

    We must be indeed. I watched it again too, albeit only one more time. He was doing other stuff besides the samosas. The thing was he had to keep stopping to watch her have a meltdown because she also seemed to have a fit if he didn't pause to watch her have a fit. I don't even blame him for dropping that tortilla with all the drama she was generating on the side. I'm an efficient cook and I would have dropped something with a banshee screaming at me while I'm trying to find somewhere to put it.

    There was plenty of footage of him working and actually doing stuff while she was screaming and crying like she was out of her mind. I suspect they wanted to edit it like Subha was a dazed numpty (and to be fair in one of the early team challenges he did seem like that) but he actually did solid work so it just made Dorian look like she was a lunatic.

    I'm unstoppable! Found a supplier in China and go on live stream to sift through jade for my jewellery projects. Google translate is apparently good enough to conduct full projects with my jeweller who only speaks Mandarin😂 I had this set made for Lil Sis. It was a stroke of luck to find matching flowers. My lotuses

    Was it just me or did Joe's chef drop a truckload of salt onto her food? I probably enjoy more well seasoned food than most but that didn't look edible to me. I kinda dig Subah chugging along all chilled while that lunatic screamed and cried at him. She's up there on the crazy scale. Definitely a candidate for a season of Masterchef US Crazies.

    I went and looked them up. Just the gold and silver performances. Really not my cup of tea I think.

    I've actually looked up a lot of old programs to see what the complaint is about skating "these days" and I was bored stiff. There was a lot of what looked to me like skating around and then "hut hut" to get ready for a jump. I'm honestly not sure why that's considered artistic. Must be just personal taste. I like transitions and jumps. I get bored when I see people holding the same pose for a zillion years and skating around and around. *** I thought the ladies were mad awesome at the last Olympics but I wasn't entirely happy with the men. If they'd skated to the level of their 2019 world's performances it would have been insane. Next Olympics though will be nuts if they all stay healthy.

    Mourning the elimination of Derek so I've got zero will to watch. He was a good adventurous cook, handsome and he was so nice 😭😢

    Programs I've watched too often to count (in no particular order): 1. Alexei Yagudin Man in the Iron Mask 2. Alexei Yagudin Winter 3. Timothy Goebel An American in Paris - the original quad king! 4. Alina Zagitova Don Quixote - I think I've watch this at least once week since the 2018 Olympics. My gosh she was a badass, backloading and nailing every jump. This program had it all. Adorable and charming presentation combined with badass jumping. Will always be memorable for me. 5. Rika Kihira Beautiful Storm - one of my favourites. Will always watch the NHK version where she nailed it. 6.Jun Hwan Cha Romeo and Juliet - Junliiiiiiiiieeeeeeet need I say more. I almost died when the disco broke out and nothing will ever amuse me again like that jump timed right on the Juuuuuuliiiiiieeeeeet screaming.
