    I do hate inconsistencies. I also hate how there are so many cast people who only show up for one episode and then are never seen again. It would be nicer if they at least were in the background as opposed to presenting some issue for Laura or someone to resolved and disappearing forever.

    good question. I've been assuming they show us top 4 but that there are other writers in the mix (maybe they get listened to separately and not in person).

    I thought the Aloe episode was really great. I truly enjoy this show. The energy is very positive. I thought Tate's attitude was annoying but I liked hearing her sing, and I liked all 3 songs. I thought I'm Just Getting Started worked really well for the movie, and I've had the hook in my head ever since I watched the show.

    All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    non medical person here, but I remember that seeming over the top. And I'm pretty sure there is some other episode where they are slammed and pull some old nurse from the geriatric ward? and she is dressed like a 1950s nurse? It was thrown out there for humor but it was so out there, I found it annoying.

    S17.E14: Finale

    I loved Nina's congrats speech to Sebastian. It was very touching, and his life story is amazing. If I have it right, he was a serious ballet dancer (did he say he was professional? or stopped short of it), then cleaned buildings after moving to the US and now this. He's clearly a driven individual who will not be stopped by ego to do what he needs to do to survive and get to the next level. One thing that puzzled me a bit was how Garo's corset obsession was never questioned. I'm not saying corsets should be banned or are offensive to me, but they have some negative connotations especially in 2019. Seeing a male designer include them again and again, and rightly noting they work better on a larger model where you can cinch up a woman, was a bit odd to me. Using them less often wouldn't have raised the question to me, but since he kept going back to it, I was a little surprised we never heard the judges question whether that was entirely appropriate--they questioned other things.

    I love this as a summer show. I hope it comes back next summer--don't ruin it with too long of a season or too many episodes. I always like all of the songs and the process and end up rooting for all of them. I did really like the song she picked. Describing a relationship as one-sided is not exactly something no one has ever done, but I don't recall hearing it in a song and I just like how he pulled all of it together.

    I so agree. I loved those scenes and they always seemed like a great couple.

    All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    I agree with so many posts on here and thank you all for reminding me of the great Mark/his dad storylines. My favorite scene with his dad was the Thanksgiving one where he has to go get the pads for Rachel. also the above (is that it) set up my favorite scene of Benton responded (I paraphrase) not if I can help it, going after him and saying fine, you want to fight? ok but your ass is getting in that van. I loved Benton refusing to give up. So loved it. I really like how the show wrote Mark. He was so real. Not perfect but real. There are a lot of nice people who suck at saying to someone's face what they really think. Not because they are evil but because they are bad at confrontation/don't want to hurt feelings and then find themselves backtracking, etc. You don't often see that on TV--it's normally so and so lies and is evil. Mark just weak spined his way into bad situations.
  10. that was my other favorite part of this episode. I truly don't understand women like her. I have no answers when my husband looks to me for an explanation on how they exist. I have no clue.
  11. this 100%. Those were so funny and so on point.

    Casada update: he's announced he's stepping down as speaker in early August. After he turns 60 and people say his pension goes up (not certain that is true). Small protests have erupted saying get out now.

    S17.E13: One Elle of a Day

    I was sad to see Bishme go but agree it was the right call. It definitely looked probable that he would have really struggled to put together 3 final looks in time--and his 11th look was just so bad. He clearly was overwhelmed with personal issues and it did not look like he'd be able to rally and take a tunnel vision approach. Hester was less annoying with more time to work and her designs were better than in the challenges. I still really want Sebastian to win. His looks to be the strongest. I loved the home visits--and I kind of liked making it shorter (we didn't see a dinner with each designer like we would with Tim). Christian's reactions were so funny especially when he showed up at Garo's place. I could watch a whole series just with Christian traveling around and giving running commentary. Maybe they could rehash that show that had Austin Scarlet and Santino traveling around and making clothes for people. It was a fun little show. They actually did an episode in my home town and made a pageant dress for the local Miss pageant. My mom told me Santino asked to address the audience and was just super nice--that part was not shown in the show. I digress.

    I really enjoyed the show. It's fun to snark on shows, but I also like to have shows that just make me happy. Thanks for being so invested, Will.I.am. It really added to the show. I also think it really helped since the 3 writers were not naturally churning out BEP songs--so it helped bridge what they started with to a BEP song.

    S06.E13: Medical Device Design

    The Tennessee part could have been stronger--based on living here and living through it. The aide is gone; Casada (the rep) is not. He's agreed (reluctantly) to step down as speaker; I don't think he's stepping down as a rep. Also, yesterday which is when he was supposed to discuss his plan for leaving he announced he would start working on that AFTER his vacation! Truth is we all know "plan for leaving" should take 5 minutes--as in draft the "I resign letter" and be done. Also when the Casada thing first broke, he initially went full Trump (a) blame this on the media; say they are making this up; and (b) blame his own statements on "locker room" talk. I guess he was shocked to realize these approaches don't work for every Republican. The piece could have also discussed how (a) he/staffer is under investigation for trying to frame a civil rights activist (reports so far suggest somebody doctored the date on a email that the activisit sent to make it look like he violated a restraining order; he actually sent the email pre-order); and (b) the possibility of bribes being paid when the House tied on the Governor's crappy voucher plan; Casada held the vote open until he arm twisted one Repub to flip his vote. The plan only got through after they watered it down so it only applies to Nashville and Memphis-you know the 2 counties that reliably go Blue and that have the most minorities. I don't think it even brought up when he barred the doors and prevented Democrats from leaving the chamber--physically had troopers keep them there--because otherwise he'd lose a quorum since all the Repubs were not there.
