    Race & Ethnicity on TV

    Wow, just here a couple of days and I'm starting a topic! One of my absolute favorite topics/forums from TWOP is discussing how race and/or ethnicity is reflected (or not reflected) in television. While I hardly ever contributed to the discussion, I loved reading the various opinions and debates that others engaged in. Hopefully those members will find this and continue contributing to my education (I've seen a couple of them pop up on here already).

    Live PD

    If Pasco did this (and was still on Live PD) I would definitely have driven down for something like this.

    Live PD

    I used to work with firefighters/paramedics. Without fail, getting spit on involved a much stronger reaction than other attacks (punching, kicking, fighting). There's something humiliating about it. Also, we tended to do BBP exposure protocol which involves a lot of periodic testing.

    What Men Want (2019)

    I'm surprised a thread hasn't been started yet on this. I just saw it tonight and thought it was hysterical, as did the admittedly small audience in the theatre. And Aldi's Hodge, who I hadn't seen since Leverage and did not know was in this, looks damn good!! Wow!! Overall it was pretty good and work the ticket price. I want to know if the boo boo shitty kitty line was ad-libbed by Wendy McLendon-Covey.

    Discontinued Foods You Miss

    So I was wandering around Amazon and saw that they have Planters Cheez Balls 12 pack for $24.00!!! I can now un-ration the one can I was able to find.

    [FIXED] Homepage Missing Shows

    Thank you. I want sure if that was it or if I was doing something wrong (which is highly possible).

    [FIXED] Homepage Missing Shows

    I am trying to get The Neighborhood on my homepage. After finally finding it I selected to follow it, but it still isn't showing up. Is that because it's considered a topic and not a forum? All the other shows I followed were either already showing up or I was able to add them with no issues.

    Commercials That Got Us Misty, Choked Us Up Or Made Us Cry

    Duckie and I've have had a conversation about good and bad touches.

    Race & Ethnicity on TV

    Hmm, this is maybe where I'm at. I still have a lot of episodes recorded. Unreached. I like the cast. I love the lead. I really like the idea if it and I like that (at least in the beginning) they respect his agnostic choice. Everytime I watch the show I like it. But I don't think about watching the show and now I have a bunch of unreached episodes sitting in the cloud.

    Commercials That Got Us Misty, Choked Us Up Or Made Us Cry

    I...I....I don't really know what to do with this information. I legit think on traumatized right now. And I'm holding a stuffed duck!!! I don't know whether to cry into Duckie or throw him across the room. I'm also never watching Howard the Duck again.

    Rent Live! (Fox)

    I think that's an issue with all of them (and maybe just being that age in general), there's no grey, it's all or nothing, black and white. I think it's one of the reason's I appreciated Benny, for everything the others are going through, and even though Benny can be a douche, he also seems like the only actual grown up . Same thing for the homeless woman - them standing out there protesting, pissing everyone off is just creating a worse environment for them to live in. Yeah, I can see this. I always thought the most telling line for Mark was where he says to Roger that he'll be the only one left (in the scene where they are fighting). The first time I heard that, it was like damn. His two closest friends, Benny being gone, (and at that age, probably the two people who matter the most to him ) are both HIV positive, which in the early 90's was essentially dying of AIDS, or at least that's how it felt. His ex-girlfriend is now in a relationship with a woman, and now enters two new people, bot who are HIV positive and one with an addiction. Yeah. I can get how he felt like give it another few years and he'll be alone.

    Rent Live! (Fox)

    Mimi and Roger on the whole make me stabby. This is the first Roger that didn't outright annoy me. I would watch that entire thing again just for that final curtain rise. And seeing the two Collins sing have me chills.

    Rent Live! (Fox)

    Yes, that's who's plating Mark. I'm enjoying him a lot. Mark is such an important character yet doesn't get a lot of attention. He's doing a great job being the glue for the various storylines and anchoring it for the audience. He's definitely making Mark his own.

    Ummm. has he been singing at this level the entire time?? Because DAMN!!

    Rent Live! (Fox)

    I think this is it. Some are pretty decent (Maureen, Rooger, Mark - though I love Mark so that might just be me), others....maybe not so much. It became really evident with Settle doing Seasons of Love. Some of those voices will not be able to handle that song.

    Rent Live! (Fox)

    I have seen it live three times (one on Broadway) and truthfully the best version was a tour that came to my University in the 90's. Second was a revival tour in the 2000's ( my friends was asst tour manager and I got to see it a few times and helped with merch). See it live if you can, just to see it live, but nothing can beat that movie with original cast.

    Rent Live! (Fox)

    Will I is probably one of my favorite songs, and whoever it was that opened it was beautiful. Does anyone know if any of the original cast will be doing any cameos or joining in the last Seasons of Love? Gotcha. That makes sense. I did a quick IMDB search and a couple of the cast didn't seem to have much singing background (including him) but that site can be wrong.

    It's still early, but I'm not loving Angel. They just don't seem like a very strong (or maybe just not very good) singer.

    Favorite Commercials

    I don't know how national this is, but I'm really enjoying the Advent Health commercial. It's got a catchy song too.

    What New Foods Have You Tried?: Like It? Hate It? Share Here!

    I would try the English toffee peanut and maybe the Thai coconut peanut. I'm not a huge M&M fan (the only one i like is peanut). After trying the Hershey and Reese's bar I think I'll pass on the candy bars.

    Class, Gender, Race, etc. in Commercials

    There needs to be billboards if this everywhere. And this made me snort rose.

    Class, Gender, Race, etc. in Commercials

    Okay, so I finally figured out why everyone is discussing the white dude following a woman He Does Not Know Nor Has Spoken To to some imaginary corner. What I don't get is why it's being defended as if that's totally okay . 1. If I meet some rando guy in a store and we exchange basic pleasantries (Hi - Hi - Nice unicorn shirt you're getting - Yeah thanks, my friend's obsessed with unicorns - Ha, ha my friend's obsessed with dragons. - ha, ha, that's funny. okay have a good day - you too) that doesn't mean it's cool for him to tap me on the shoulder 5 minutes later while I'm waiting for the walk sign to light up and checking my messages. It's creepy and I can get a little twitchy so I might swing out if you startle me like that. (Also, I have a CCP so continuing to follow me might turn bad for all of us) 2. Just because a guy or a girl speaks to you and engages in basic, banal conversation doesn't mean that they want to date you. It's called small talk strangers do to avoid awkward pauses. If you are taking as an invitation that it means your genitalia should meet you should get out more. Join a Toastmasters, they will help you learn this. But here's the thing... none of this is relevant to the ad!!!! This is not what happened in the Gillette ad. Dude didn't have a meet cute with her and decide it's true love. Dude thought she had a nice ass and saw she's wearing shorts and a tank top and OBVIOUSLY that meant she wanted to get with him so he should totally follow her with a completely non-creepy expression (cat wants to not only eat the canary he wants to wear the canary like a hat). /sarcasm And yes, if the roles were reversed I would have the Exact. Same. Reaction. And if anyone is hanging around in forums or with people who think that would be totally okay you need to get better forums and better friends.
  23. That's okay, you have my real name now! :)
