  1. Do they ever explain why some of the faces are blurred but not most of them?
  2. I was wondering this too. I like the concept that she could save herself, but how would she know how to throw a real punch like that? I expected some line about how one of her brothers had taught her or something, but with no explanation it seemed odd.
  3. Interesting concept, I"ll have to read more about this. Was this an aspect of the original books, or something Shona Rhimes came up with? I do like this concept better than fully colorblind casting, where it can get confusing when characters who are supposed to be related don't look like they could be related.
  4. Good point, except Liz had forgiven him way before that, which I felt was un-earned - should have saved her forgiveness for after his big sacrifice. Also not clear if he knew resurrecting her would kill him.
  5. I am working my way through this show for the first time and I think this must be a spoiler for a future episode?
  6. Do rights to the music not get included with rights to a show that used it? I started watching the old Roswell on Hulu and it has the theme song I remember and various other songs I remmeber from the 90s, but I can’t remmeber well enough to know if they’re the same songs. There was only one other song I really truly remember, which is the one from the scene where time travel max is dancing with Liz and disappears - so I’ll have to find that episode to see if it has the song I remember. I’m also watching the new Roswell in parallel, a few years late 😉
  7. Does Hulu have the original music??
  8. So is the little girl in the credits supposed to be his sister, rather than Grace?
  9. I guess I missed that! Still odd that there was never any scene where the adoptive mother found out Beth's real age.
  10. I really liked this show, but in retrospect it seemed like there were a lot of moments that just never came to anything and I'm mystified as to why they were included. For instance, what was the point of the orphanage lady lying about Beth's age when setting up her adoption? It was never mentioned again and there was never any indication the adoptive mother believed her to be 13 rather than 15; e.g. she immediately enrolled in a high school, not a junior high. Why was that included?
  11. Ok, so that scene of Hugh Grant at the hospital last episode WAS a flashback - seems like a cheat, making it seem like he was there at that time. Now I know this is the kind of show where I can't trust what they show us, which is annoying. They should have made that more clearly a flashback. Yes, once the lawyer friend had taken his case, she's bound by privilege, but is she bound by privilege if he asks her to take his case and she says no? Why would she ever say yes to representing her best friend's husband without her best friend's knowledge, especially on a sexual misconduct charge? Isn't it part of her job to avoid such obvious conflicts of interest? I hope that is going somewhere - like the lawyer friend did the murder, or was having an affair with the husband - rather than just being a bizarre inexplicable choice by the lawyer friend (what's her name?). Nicole Kidman going down to the police station all alone without a lawyer or purse or anything, on the spur of the moment at night, was ridiculous. At least she eventually summoned her knowledge of things like custodial situations but she should have started by saying she'd be happy to schedule a meeting with them and her lawyer the next morning. How did the police know to find her at her father's house? The credits with a little girl and blood seem like maybe there was some murder buried in her childhood which she has repressed memories of, or something along those lines... If she believes her husband probably just beat a woman to death, one he was sleeping with, then she should be afraid of him and trying to placate him and calling the police once his back is turned, not confronting him to his face all alone with no witnesses or protection. And she should probably have had some kind of protection at the beach house, given how rich her father is.
  12. Was that supposed to be a flashback? I thought they were showing that he did go to the hospital that night from the party. I’ll be annoyed if it turns out he didn’t - seems like a cheat on the part of the show. And if it was Grace’s flashback - she wouldn’t have been there to witness that kind of scene in a hospital.
  13. I mean, she knows about it now if we all know about it. They could show her reacting to the New York Times article announcing it. I’m not saying I have any idea *when* Sarah knew, just that it’s weirdly incomplete for the documentary not to even mention it and that that would have been a way to work it in while still focusing on their main characters that they have available to interview.
  14. She made it clear she didn’t know how to use them - she threw away the one the girl gave her and used toilet paper instead (that wouldn’t have lasted me very long!) and then when she got home she told her foster mother she didn’t know how to use them and asked for help.
  15. The couple adopting a young teenager as a companion for a depressed wife reminds me a lot of White Oleander, except that mom was more into bonding with her. The cut from age ten saying she’s not allowed to play chess anymore to age 15 still obsessed with chess was an odd cut. Was she able to play chess with the janitor or the high school chess club in the intervening years? I wonder if they filmed and deleted a scene where Beth opens the menstrual product and is totally confused how to use it - because my understanding is that back then it would have involved a garter belt type thing with safety pins etc. That scene was weird to modern eyes because a modern pad is super easy to use and throwing it away would make no sense, but I gather they were more confusing and complicated back then. Unless it was something other than a pad? I don’t think tampons would have been a thing with teenage girls back then. Were there any other options? At least she knew what it was when it happened. Why did the foster mom say it was late in the day for her if she believes her to be two heads younger that she is?
