  1. I was so surprised to see them when I turned on SYTTD tonight! I felt so bad for Randy, having to call him "Swaggy." Ugh. I will say that Bayleigh looked very pretty and Swaggy C was actually mostly fine on it--he at least said the right things. But Bayleigh having a stylist?!
  2. I don't think we were misreading that initial portrayal of it--that's how the show made it look. It's only later, with Michelle reflecting on it and getting to the point herself of asking whether she was raped, that we get a clearer understanding of what happened. It's not an uncommon occurrence; I know a few women who only years later, looking back, realize that they were raped. When it happens, they tell themselves something else to be able to continue on.
  3. I don't hate Hunter. He's...fine. But that's about it. I don't think he brings anything to the table in these shows, and as such, I don't really like seeing him pop up on them. When he tastes something on DDD, for example, his comments on the food are probably about on par with what I would say, whereas Guy will point out some interaction among the ingredients or throw out an idea on GGG that the chefs can take. Hunter is just kind of there. I'm sure he's a totally competent chef, but that doesn't mean I want him on my tv all the time. If he appeared less frequently, I'd care less.
  4. Stop. Trying. To. Make. Hunter. Happen.
  5. I thought it was interesting that the show is laying the groundwork for Michelle's death by bringing up her prescriptions; I wasn't sure how it would handle that, particularly with Patton being an executive producer. Also, her dad's message about wanting to live another 12 months so he could see the book--and he died in 2014, I think. So Michelle was probably quite a bit behind her deadline.
  6. Yes, give me grocery comps! They don't even tell us who's on slop anymore, so just go back to PB&J. Remember how excited they'd get when they unlocked the hot tub?
  7. The red new chairs in the Phoenix Uptown aren't comfortable; I've been in those before at other restaurants. I was confused by the reno of the Jaxon Edwin; when Gordon got there, he was confused by the function of the first floor, and though they switched out the types of games, the area essentially stayed the same. I totally understand not wanting to put in a kitchen or anything of a ton of value down there, but I was thinking there'd be some sort of bar area or something similar. But I enjoyed the episode. It was nice to focus more on the feel-good than yelling. Loved the two guys getting excited when Gordon said "Iron Man," and then Cal Ripken showed up.
  8. I agree that Tati just has a very dry sense of humor. I think, like us, she rolls her eyes at the producer-directed conversations ("Tati, did you go to prom?"), though she always winds up going along with them. The conversation with Clinton about kids will probably go down as an all-time favorite moment for me.
  9. It bothered me on this show because so many times Zoey would get up, have a scene with Mo, go to her parents' house, and THEN go to work. And then have coffee/breakfast with Max/Simon. It was just a LOT for the mornings, assuming these people didn't live and work within a 1-mile radius.
  10. I don't think Zoey didn't like him romantically, it's more that she didn't think it was the right time for them, between her dealing with all the stuff with her father and (at that time) Zoey being Max's supervisor. But that roadblock was gone and he showed a different side to himself--it was a turn-on. That said, I don't think she's made up her mind/heart between Max and Simon. She likes both of them. I didn't feel like the lines were distributed randomly. Despite the song being a series of nonsequitors, they fit the characters perfectly. Like so many others, it just took the first few notes of this to get my crying. Perfect, perfect choice.
  11. Totally agree. I discovered I was rooting for Arin or Tati more than Sohrob; possibly the combination of him being in the bottom so many weeks and then not really doing anything with the kindergarten theme after not letting Tati get it. His decorations were also a bit lackluster--the details on the flower were amazing, but his lettering isn't great and the music notes didn't impress. Tati's design was amazing; too bad the cakes weren't done. Ah well. Bummed to not have another baking championship next; I don't think I'll be watching the Martha Stewart thing.
  12. Agreed. Stop trying to make Hunter happen, Guy/Food Network! On topic, I was impressed with Val's dessert--making a cookie that large and seemingly delicate isn't easy. I also think seahorse was the most challenging design. But I like all the remaining bakers, so it's all good.
  13. Also, was pleased to see Marlo from The Wire as Martin's prison buddy. Since they haven't named the character, I'm just going to assume it IS Marlo, who naturally is running Rikers, but has apparently mellowed enough in age to tell Martin about him imminent death before actually making it happen.
  14. That's what I'm going with. The last time we saw them together was that meeting in the restaurant, and his behavior toward her in this episode was...very creepy. (I'm also hoping we met Leonard in those two episodes, because that guy was random.)
  15. Yes! LOVED the exchange between Tati and Clinton about being parents, with their realization that it's the Mother's Day episode--"We love kids!" Especially since it came right after Clinton's reaction to the pepper tequila.
