  1. Well y'all said everything I would have said 6 months ago. I'm just supremely pissed that nam one if y'all PM'd me out of my pandemic funk last fall so I could join in real time. #notforlazyfans
  2. My guess is that a purposeful pregnancy was the controlling older boyfriend's idea to force Kate to be tied to him. Especially after her family breaking her out at the cabin. Remember how he would love bomb her after every abusive incident? I think he did that times 20 after the cabin, and convinced her that her having his baby would force the Pearsons to accept him. Yes! That story sounded super fake. This explanation makes sense. In this forum many imply that the show benevolently let Chrissy Metz off the hook from her original contract. But there is little doubt in my mind
  3. Please watch Get Out. Nothing I would consider torture porn. And Jordan Peele continues his master class in the psychological horrors of just existing, especially as a Black American. This. Forget JLo, Lupita Nyong'o is the one who was robbed of acting noms.
  4. Y'all are way more generous than I am. All I can think about this finale is how pissed I am that I paid for a whole month of HBO for that. Just like Issa and Prentiss (and Amanda obvi) seem to think they broke some major ground with 16 minutes of PPD storyline, they don't seem to realize what character-burning damage they've done to Molly. It feels like they don't watch their own show to not realize that Molly's words and actions this season took what could have been from-college-to-real-adults growing pains and morphed it into scorched-earth-on-that-former-friend territory. Molly di
  5. Has it though? They are both at such different and more mature places now. Even wanting to do a post mortem is a big sign of maturity. Sharing their hopes, dreams and recent realizations about themselves with no filter is another. I mean they just turned 30. Their relationship started in college and many of those are difficult to last through the broke-ass-finding-myself 20s. Now that they're both grown and they clearly had a good foundation, would it be terrible for them to try again?
  6. I agree. I was thinking of Toni as a version of Max and Molly as a version of Toni. Max's one-that-got-away was even named Greg! (I had forgotten that.) All three are fashionable, independent, picky about men, and, of course, dark-skinned women. Molly is career-focused like Max and selfish (and bad at relationships) like Toni. Issa is the heart of the group who holds them all together like Joan did for their group. And Molly is her college BFF like Toni was Joan's. I just watched the first episode of Living Single but I can't remember if Khadijah and Max were college friends. I hope
  7. Mabel Moment: I just started back working out since I packed on this COVID-19 lbs. And today was my 4th day running. When I was finished, I was so proud of myself and I was like, "Day 4!" 👍🏾 And then I thought of Mabel and cracked myself up in the middle of a Chicago sidewalk. Speaking of Regine: I've been watching Living Single reruns on Hulu and a thought occurred. Does Max = Toni Childs = Molly? There is a decided through-line on multiple levels. Hmmm...
  8. It's working. My Mom swears she's getting high off of CBD gummies. And she should know better. She's 62 and actually did smoke pot.
  9. That scene where Molly is in the Ethiopian restaurant waiting for her food, sees Issa getting out of the car and says to herself, "Here we go," I read it differently than many of you do. I thought she was waiting for Issa to come in because she saw Issa was coming in. Not to be petty and wait for Issa to grovel. I thought the "here we go" was a recognition of the fact that this encounter - whatever it may be - was not going to be easy. Not only did they have Molly's blowup between them, but it had been months since they had had anything like a real conversation without simmering resentmen
  10. Oh @AnimeMania. Well then ignore everything I said. As you can see, I do not watch/read trailers in general and this one made me so confused. As you were.
  11. So for real... you guys aren't bored to death with this show at this point? It took me 2 full days to finish washing this 1 hr show. I keep waiting for something (anything!) interesting to happen. But every week is just hero worship of Axe and now Wendy, shluppiness of Chuck, inconsistent character development of my only hope Taylor and all the supporting characters who don't get nearly enough development. At this point, I've only been watching to see Sacher and/or Taylor win without Chuck and/or Axe. And, of course, to see how luminous Lauren looks every week. Her skin, her hair and he
  12. A-ha @scrb! That explains it. I thought he was just using Economy Plus as a stand-in for any airlines' pay-more-seats. Wasn't aware it was United. I have refused to fly United since they beat down that Asian doctor, made that grandma check her giant pocketbook with her medicine in it, and killed that dog in the overhead bin all in like the space of one month shortly after I moved to Chicago. I almost always fly American. And they have Basic Economy (no checked bag, no picking seats), Main Cabin (pick a seat and check a bag) and Main Cabin Extra (add booze and supposedly legroom). And
  13. Really? Why can't I criticize a trailer? I'm not new to tv nor misleading trailers. Who wants spoilers in a trailer? I don't like spoilers so I tend to avoid trailers, as I did this one. Still watched the show. Still liked it. Still think the trailer was needlessly untrue. I don't think show descriptions have to be inaccurate to avoid spoilers. They can be suggestive without being revealing. But describing something about the show that is not true, is not a trailer. You know, since that thing is not in the show it's supposed to be previewing. Reading this description after seei
