    The Hills

    $200k an episode seems high, though I know The Hills was very hot at one time. i think reality show cast members get about that for a season on the low end?

    S04.E07: All Hail the Queen

    Thinking about it more, I really doubt the guests asked for a picnic on top of Eze. There are plenty of high end restaurants, with stupendous views, up there. So the producers wanted it, put it in their pref sheet. Maybe it was just the views or maybe to stress the crew having to take all that stuff up there, then of course forgetting cutlery. They could probably borrow or buy cutlery from a restaurant or a hotel up there. But they just want to take a shot of the guests at the table up there, probably don't care if they eat that picnic meal.

    The Hills

    Brody talks repeatedly about his father, which I don’t think he did in the OG. I guess the father wasn’t as known for reality TV or this trans thing back in the original run of The Hills. So Bruce left his wife talking about transitioning but married another woman and had more kids, whom Brody doesn’t seem to see, before h came out to the world? Please tell me people aren’t dumb enough to buy those stupid healing crystals. They claim to be making a lot of money from that hippy dippy shit? Obviously they’re hoping free commercials on the show will get a lot of dumb impulse orders. Why not do one of those vanity tequilas or something. Spencer says they blew through $10 million in 2 years. The Hills were big but they were paid that much? Did thy do club appearances for big money back in the day? He talks about how the crystals make people feel better. Brody mocking him putting the crystals to the forehead is funny. But that party it was all about how they look, just IG photos of them as jewelry. They now want to play up some love triangle with Audrina, Justin Bobby and Heidi. How dumb, these people are in their 30s. They’re all supposedly single so why was that woman calling out Justin Bobby and Heidi for being shady? But the show is trying to make a big deal out of it.

    S04.E07: All Hail the Queen

    Eze has a lot of pricey restaurants with views. Not sure why they are lugging up a picnic of paninis. I’m not even sure where they’d find space to set up tables and chairs. There isn’t a lot of space, especially public space. There’s a botanical garden up there at the top with cacti and views of the sea but they wouldn’t set up there unless Bravo is paying them money. That cake eating footage they made it appear she ate the whole thing. They probably burn calories doing long hours of essentially physical labor. They better feed them. As for all the crew getting cross with each other, it’s inevitable, liquor them up for a few hours between grueling work, they get some fireworks. Especially when disagreements from work build up. What else is new on Bravo?

    Divorce

    I can’t recall if Robert’s sister Cathy has been on previously. Her poor husband. So much is said withdrew words indeed. Jackie and Frances have words about Tom’s college plans. Kid mocks Frances for working at bird store. Diane going to adopt that shoplifter even though she doesn’t have money? Now Robert and Frances are going to have a couples dinner with each other so Robert could ask awkward questions about race? Well I guess they’ve always tried mining comedy from upper middle class people socializing with each other.

    S01.E05: 03 Bonnie and Clyde

    It's definitely not early 2000s. They have modern phones with social media and hook up apps. Think about how widely available porn is to these kids and how they sext all the time. Or Kat's career writing fanfic and then doing the video chat with that guy who's giving her money and buying her stuff.

    Big Little Lies in the Media

    Well maybe if their next few projects don't pan out that well, they might have more interest a few years from now. I believe Reese's last couple of movies didn't do so well and they're both of a certain age where leading roles in big mainstream Hollywood movies are probably starting to get away from them. May be one reason they were willing to look at doing TV. Now Reese at least has some other TV projects lined up. The tech companies are throwing a lot of money, not just Netflix but Amazon and Apple are trying to find big hits, though more in the sci-fi/fantasy/action vein -- everyone is looking for the next GoT. But they're willing to probably pay for movie stars, even if their heydays at the box office are well over.

    The Hills

    I was checking out the MTV app. in my iPad. Looks like they have some "extras" clips. However the app. has a real dumb design where it's only showing video in the upper 1/3, not even a half of the screen in Portrait view only. Older versions weren't like this but apparently they decided to make the iPad version act like a phone. So I probably won't bother to check them out, unless I can view them on the web site or something.

    S01.E05: 03 Bonnie and Clyde

    All these kids have twisted upbringings to get to where they are. You can believe the daughter of a cosmetician who was put in pagents as a little girl would have a warped view of relationships by her teens. Also strange that Rue would seek out a relatively healthy relationship with Jules, who may not feel the same about her. But Jules is only a close second to Fentanyl and for now Rue is fine with desperately clinging to Jules. I thought in these addiction anonymous programs they discourage relationships during recovery. Ali is telling Rue the brutal truth, that Rue may just spiral back to drugs once Rules goes away.

    Our Host - Christina

    Yeah why am I being bombarded with commercials featuring her on HH and HHI? Does Barbie with the frozen smile know anything about real estate or is HGTV determined to shove her out to audiences of all HGTV shows? Only other HGTV show I have the slightest interest in is Mediterranean Life for the scenery. Another show without a host or hostess.

    Big Little Lies in the Media

    Is there any chance they're going to do another season? Like if HBO backs up the Brinks trucks? I think Reese has other shows lined up and I'm sure the other actresses can get gigs. Maybe the adulation they got in the first season is a big motivation for them as well. I don't think it's being as well-received as season 1. Then again, it actually has a higher RT score than season 1. I would never have guessed.

    S02.E06: The Bad Mother

    BTW, Bonnie had all this pent-up anger towards her mother and unleashes it on Perry. Simulate that!

    S02.E06: The Bad Mother

    Even if they discussed Celeste’s trysts, how would they know and be able to get pictures of these men? Would have taken private investigators chasing leads for months. That would be a lot of money. Then that 3D simulation and ML’s lawyer suggests Celeste pushed Perry? Apparently ML has a big bank account and this lawyer billed her left and right. Yeah as soon as they had that scene of the doe-eyed nanny, you knew it was coming up. What did that guy do, take Renata’s money, buy expensive model trains, promise money to the nanny and then ultimately blow it all on insider trading? OK, but Renata countenanced it for years, if not fund that lifestyle.
  14. Yeah it’s not clear either but it sounds like the kind of weapons used were rare in MA at that time. but they showed Ryan shooting one of the guards with a handgun, not an automatic rifle. Jackie being the greatest troll of all time, even before there were online trolls. So he taunts the junkie and he taunts that other cop who wanted the glory by being at the front as they busted into that place. Looks like the junkie is going to get revenge on Jackie through his daughter. Oh and classy, giving his Vietnamese mistress money for an abortion.
