  1. So sad to lose Jessica Walter. What a pro! Lucille Bluth was such an original. A few "mother's day" ago, my son made a video of the two of us using the worst possible pictures but interspersed with Lucille and Buster with "Mother and Boy" as the soundtrack. I loved it so much. Thanks, Jessica, for bringing to life one of my most favorite characters.
  2. I enjoyed the last season quite a bit but this season is so much better! The episodes have excellent pacing, real excitement and adventure, and I appreciate the effort to show more of the daemons with the different characters. And it was critical that Lyra and Will bond immediately and I love that they did. They were best friends almost right away. I giggled when Pan also kept his back to Will in the bathtub. I love the design of the knife. That was great work by the prop crew. Very good episode and loved seeing the witches head through the portal. Last season I had to remind mysel
  3. I preferred the first episode on the strength of this gag alone. I'm still giggling. I also loved that Colin got a license and the first thing he did was block traffic so he could feed.
  4. I have to add that the one thing I really appreciated was Terry and Glory both understanding the seriousness of the situation and LISTENING TO THE LAWYER. The scene where Terry was being questioned by the DA was very good with all the pressure of "Someone who's innocent would be giving us everything we asked for. Take this chance to clear your name." With a crime of this nature, you keep your mouth shut. If Terry had cooperated, I would have quit the show right then.
  5. I was wondering if a tropical version would have worked (maybe chopped macadamia nuts and some kind of mango). Using caramel was news to me. But when Paul mentioned it, I realized it made complete sense. It's a pain, but she could have used white chocolate and compressed air, too. Overall, I'm enjoying this show although it's very rushed. I find the hosts to be forgettable, just as I do on the BGGO. And I do prefer Sherry's critiques to Pru's. I was rooting for Tanya to get star baker. She had a rough start in the first episode, gathered herself and has been doing great wor
  6. I knew the discovery of Billy Costa was coming but I was still moved by it. I especially loved the singing by John Faa and the Gyptians.

    Chernobyl

    I was briefly watching the movie Justice League and there was a scene set somewhere in Russia close to a nuclear reactor. There was a small family in an apartment or house of some kind and I thought "Hey. They did pretty good with how those rooms would look." They they switched to a shot of the reactor and my suspension of disbelief went out the window. It was the stereotypical "reactor" with the hourglass cooling tower and I said "No way. Those would be giant blocky buildings!" Keep in mind that creatures were flying out which was ok by me but I've watched Chernobyl too many times to ac

    Chernobyl

    Hooray! I felt the music played such an important role in this program.

    Chernobyl

    They are in a separate category from Best Dramatic Series. This is "Best Limited Series" and yes, they should clean up. “Chernobyl” (HBO) “Escape at Dannemora” (Showtime) “Fosse/Verdon” (FX) “Sharp Objects” (HBO) “When They See Us” (Netflix)

    Chernobyl

    Chernobyl received Emmy nominations for Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgård, Emily Watson, and the series itself. Other nominations were for writing, cinematography, directing, makeup, and music (which I really wanted - the "non" music was perfect for this series). I admit, I did a fist-pump to see all the appreciation for the best show I've seen in a long time.
  11. I loved Colin and Christie during their first season. I knew they bickered but figured that production was highlighting the moments that fit the narrative. I've been so happy to see them again this season. They are by far the team I want to win tonight. Therefore, they have no chance. 😀 I just think either Tyler and Korey are going to continue to dominate or something ridiculous will happen like the Afghanimals stumbling to the finish line in first. Luck is such a huge factor in the final leg. HOWEVER, if Colin and Christie manage to win this thing, I will be screaming my fool head off.
  12. I work with someone from Croatia. When I mentioned the show featured Split, he said it was beautiful but the water was very cold. I hate to be snorkeling in that without a wet suit.

    Chernobyl

    I keep reviewing the show and one thing that jumps out at me is the use of "stupid". The way the actors say it and its use in the dialog make me thing calling someone "stupid" must be just about the worst thing you can say to someone in Soviet Union regardless of rank or education background. It's even in the spaces where the word isn't used. Fomin was able to use this fear of being thought to be stupid against the engineer who reported the dosimeter reading was at the max. He was so snide when he said "Tell me how an RBMK reactor can explode." Fomin tried that with Legasov as well. I lo

    Chernobyl

    I loved (and love) the movie "Citizen X". The creators of "Chernobyl" referenced this movie when they decided to have the actors speak english naturally rather than using a Russian accent. After I watched "Citizen X", I did a touch of research just to find out more about these men. I learned that the main characters are more of a composite and that there were multiple investigators who had to work around the Soviet system to catch the killer. This did nothing to lessen my enjoyment for what I consider to be an excellent movie. I still love the visual of the agents quietly surrounding Chi
