    S04.E08: Years, Continents, Bloodshed

    I watched the entire series for the first time this month so don’t have as much time invested as most. (I didn’t even realize there was a LoVe thing bc I didn’t want to be spoiled for the series, and the jerk teenage Logan was super fresh in my mind.) This definitely feels like a run-up to more episodic mysteries a la Murder She Wrote. If it were the end I think they’d give the characters the fairytale. They did a nice job writing in so many of the old faces, but Keith will be the only one I miss. Neptune has gone squarely to the 09ers, so it’s like that character is dead. Wallace had no storyline other than show him settled. Weevil was more plot device than character. It might be nice to start fresh after the soap opera baggage: Venn diagram dating, affairs, murders, mortal enemies, other assorted scandals. I enjoyed it overall but have no strong feelings about a season 5.

    Spin the Wheel

    Ended up watching the whole episode with the Vegas family bc remote was too far to reach w/out getting up. This show is awful. Incredibly slow. Only one contestant. Still have bits of “my Nanna loved the color red so I’m going with “rhubarb”, final answer” crap. That wheel is idiotic - at least have something that uses luck and skill. This is a hard pass.

    Psych

    Everytime I hear about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby I think about Psych: It’s Quarter Black. Which reminds me of Joon’s “Not even if Jesus were our manager” line, the discussion that followed, and then their agreement that the group *would* get back together if Jesus were their manager. One of my favorite episodes.

    Life In Pieces

    This season is another woof. I hope it gets canceled to give some other show a chance and let the actors move on. Such a waste of some really good talent.

    Schooled

    I wish they’d hire a voice actress a la “Future Adam” Patton Oswald. I like Lainey the character but her voice overs are one-notes.

    Pet Peeves: The Holy Trinity and Beyond

    Most of the bathrooms had two sinks, though. Score! Don’t have to hear that complaint every fricking time. It’s one of those homes that would be fantastic with updating (ca-ching.) The episode would drive me up the wall, though. I hate when people make fun of the decor and don’t look at the space.

    Life In Pieces

    Thanks for the update on season 4. I haven’t seen that it’s been renewed or canceled for 5, but given how quickly they’ll have to burn off episodes I’m guessing it’s going away. I don’t really care for how the characters developed (Joanie and John especially), and they’re in that one note personality phase already. Will give this season a try but don’t have high expectations.

    Fam

    Pilot was awful I thought. Corrupt cops are always lol. Lying to your fiancée about family estrangement, lol. 16 year old runaway/dropout with a drug dealing boyfriend, stop, I’m gonna break a rib. I felt I could see them counting a three beat pause for laughter that never came. Won’t be watching again.

    Four Weddings

    The Seattle brides were on this morning. I always liked Mallory’s wedding on her family’s lake front property (mostly because I want one, but they seemed like nice people.) Something I hadn’t caught before were the brides discussing her not having an alter, and one bride said she liked knowing which way was front. Did she think the chairs would be facing backwards?

    S06.E11: The Wedding Singer

    I really liked how they weaved footage from the tv show in with scenes from the movie as if they were filmed as one story. Don’t think I’d seen a show do something like this before, and I liked how well the quality and feel matched. Nicely done. I’m glad the teen engagement story is over. Never felt it worked or that it would happen especially after Schooled was announced.

    Four Weddings

    I hear ya! No shade from me especially when I see some of these weddings happened in 2011. COME ON. A quick Google search (ie, I don’t have info to explain or defend methodology) says the average US marriage lasts 8 years. Some of these people have to be on marriage #2 (at least!) since these were filmed.

    Four Weddings

    Oh lord. It was definitely the second one in the reception hall. That she had two meat entrees makes it so much worse. Thank you for pointing it out! If only the production company would do follow-ups. How long did some of these FOUR FANTASTIC MARRIAGES last?

    Four Weddings

    I never watched the new format. Doesn’t sound like I missed much. For the old shows, since they’re only an hour, I laugh the hardest at the pettiest brides. Blan, Dracula Marie, even that cheating bitch Glass Slipper Danielle. All are comedy gold, Jerry. Yesterday there was a “Top 10” marathon but they never explained which Top 10 they were showing (10 highest individual scores? Top 10 viewer choices? I dunno.) Regardless, after enjoying 6 hours of repeats, I had to change the channel when the woman with multiple shades of purple hair but 3 almost identical ball gowns came on. She was the one who bitched repeatedly about having to choose between meat options at the buffet cooked by the brides’ families. The dinner was a home cooked gift provided by people who loved them. There were a ton of sides — no one went hungry — they just asked you choose an entree (which is what you normally get when it’s plated.) I won’t watch that episode again.

    S06.E05: Mister Knifey-Hands

    I don’t always remember to watch, which makes me sad for when I liked it. Erica’s awful, middle-aged roommate and the constant on-screen singing were the beginning. We get it already: Hayley wants to sing professionally and the show wrote it into the storyline. Barry, JTown’s oldest high school senior, is engaged to one of the other college dropouts. Adam has a rando girlfriend who makes no sense for him other than as a foil for his multiple Ro-buts. I’m sorry but Bev clearly failed as a mother. Her kids aren’t even decent people (in the show, lol. I’m not confusing the characters with the people.) At this point, make the kids guest stars. They run in, beg for money since they don’t have jobs, and storm out when denied. Bring back Vic. Hire Nitro as a delivery person. (Show me your boobs.) Wacky hijinks down at the discount furniture store ensue. And —this can never be said often or forcefully enough — more PopPop.

    S06.E05: Mister Knifey-Hands

    Did Erica hide their relationship for 3 months because she was embarrassed by Jeff? I remember he was into her and everyone knew it, but she only fell for him later when it was too late because by then he’d lost hope and was with Young Bev. Then we spent part of a season watching Erica pining for Jeff until her broke it off with Young Bev to be with her. I don’t remember her hiding it because she was embarrassed. (She and Young Bev overlapped a bit, I thought.)
