    S01.E11: We Continue to Truck

    I'm always struck by his posture as david. He consistently does this hand in pockets hunched over thing and to me it always reads as david. I thought it was just Johnnie's real affect but he doesn't do it as Leonard so obviously it's a character affectation.

    This. I'm surprised anyone is acting like real people wouldn't act this way. I'm thinking anyone who maybe hasn't lived this kind of hand to mouth life where you're struggling to do more than just survive might not get it but to me it rings true and not because the characters are dumb. It rings true because it's damn hard to change the course of your life and decision making when you're so worn down from surviving then you add tons of grief and bad coping skills on top? People actually think they're going to make good decisions?

    This rings true for me anyway. There are some loves you just can't escape sometimes even when the person that inspired it completely changes.

    Dude...if you've never been a single lonely mom you just might not get it. Those kinds of connections are rare and delving into them makes you be more mature when they end.

    Or Mr Rogers, Bob Ross and Steve Irwin. How are none of them in the good place?

    People can sleep with their boss and things be fine as long as both are adults. The boss being willing to talk through uncomfortable moments with her bodes well for them being able to move on when it's over. Things like this happen all the time without both parties imploding. Relationships end and it can be fine after that.

    Lots of people do this. Especially women who cling to being "independent" after divorce. I have a friend who has only ever slept with her ex husband and they got divorced the same time I did, 6 years ago. She's never even come close to flirting with someone much less a date. So I think it happens way more than you'd think.

    They're too young for prince? I was listening to him at younger than them.

    Omg! I had completely forgotten that! I had also forgotten Jackie had a kid until I saw it mentioned on here. I'm trying to still figure out what happened to everyone because I didn't watch the show with Roseanne on it due to her politics. So I'm still a little confused by some things plus I haven't seen an episode of the original Roseanne in over 6 years since I went to only streaming services and no cable.

    Before my own divorce I'm sure I would have agreed. When I finally started dating after it was over I at first only went out with men who were similar to my ex husband. Then I had a moment like Darlene did where I was like...what am I doing since that obviously didn't work out. Now I date all kinds of men and find myself more drawn to men who are nothing like my ex. You go through this whole process of learning what you're even attracted to after you get divorced from someone you were married to for a long time. This to me is way more realistic for Darlene, who has always been self aware, than it would be to keep having her date weak men.

    S20.E09: Mea Culpa

    Even tho this episode was awful it did kind of make me indignant that two people could be black out drunk but only one is a rapist. What IS the law here I wonder? If neither can consent then how do the police decide if anything happened?

    I don't get what difference it makes.

    S2: E4 Tough Titmouse

    I just watched this episode tonight. And I'm a mom of two asd kids but still had to let a friend go this week because of having to deal with asd issues. I've been beating myself up over it because I felt I should be more empathetic but the truth is its damn hard. Even for someone really familiar with the disorder. I'll miss my friend but I just couldn't do it any more.

    S06.E20: Caitlyn & Kenton

    Just watched this episode tonight and while Kenton is stupid I'll be the lone voice saying don't freaking date if you don't have time caitlyn! So obnoxious when people act like because you have a small kid the partner should settle for bread crumbs. You working at being a good mom? Good do that. Stop acting like no communication is acceptable because of that. It's not. So don't date. Especially long distance.
