  1. For a second, I thought he just left his village to go be a fire dancer and never contacted them again. I couldn’t figure out how he was working in Thailand, then he wasn’t.

    I was waiting for Daphne to tell Gordon “I used to help Michael Symon make great dishes in 5 minutes.” Can Gordon get her name right? I’m with @DEL901. I had to laugh when Dorian said Carla when they mentioned The Chew - and Daphne wasn’t there all seven seasons. But I do like her and I enjoyed her being there.

    Yeah, I wasn’t too sad when Conductor Dude backed right out - talk about reaping what you sowed.

    Personally I loved Jamie's food with smoke and thought that should be there instead of bringing up a KitchenAid mixer with a deconstructed pie (wow, what I wouldn't have given to see Paul and Mary giving that the side eye). What was wrong with test tubes, btw? It's as inventive as a big old slab of rock with stuff broken on it and squares of chocolate sauce, Gordon. Thank you. I'm sick to death of everyone's stories. I'd rather someone said "I thought it would be just pretentious enough to bamboozle you all."

    Per an article in House Beautiful, second season this fall!

    No, it comes from X-Files fandom. The Mulder/Scully partisans called themselves “relationshippers” and it got shortened to shippers. The Sergei folks, well, there were the Snape wives married to him on the astral plane, so all fandoms are the same....

    I thought the same thing about the steak sauces from last week. The stuff that gets marveled over as excellent plating looks like a mess to me most of the time.

    Maybe I had junk Alaskan king crab when I've had it but...it's crab meat. Plus they seemed to have wasted all those $500 crabs by the contestants using this small small amount to actually cook. I guess the crabs were already cooked because no one seemed to be cooking them? Why not have, say, six, and let them duke it out for which pieces to use. I was sort of baffled too - first it was "showcase the crab and don't do anything to it like make crab cakes!" but then they were okay with putting it in ravioli? Then when judging started, it was "you didn't incorporate the crab, you just put it on top." Okay, y'know, guys, pick a direction and go with it, maybe? When Renee and Joe took that pasta OUT OF THE TRASH - ugh.

    I liked the party. My headcanon is Logan, Curtis and Green were there, and stuffed an envelope full of cash with "in honor of Lennie" on it into the jar. I think it's funny to see the one about cancer from 5th season where Van Buren says she wouldn't keep working juxtaposed with her working in season 20. I wish we'd gotten season 21 but it would have been hard not seeing her there in charge, considering it's only been her and Cragen at the ol' 2-7.

    It was real - they were planning it at the time but it was going to be a terror plot, so they stopped. No idea why they never went back to it.

    As someone who is not a grillmaster - if you get steak to medium rare (which a lot of those cuts didn't look like on TV), doesn't it rest and "cook" further so that's why Noah's wasn't medium rare? (Not that I didn't enjoy seeing him taken down a bit). Me too. We haven't heard much from her but I swear every episode I've heard about Wuta's vegetarian drama.

    I could swear that the NYPD pointed out that cops can't wear beards under their rules and that's why they shaved them off - anyone else remember that?

    If you watch any of the Universal TV shows of the 70s, lots of folks ping ponged from show to show, Don Bellisario, Stephen Cannell and Glen Larson all reused people.

    Also....why did everyone make asparagus - there are other vegetables. They could have rocked out some creamed spinach or something. Plus that sad smear of mashed potatoes - if that's all they're going to give me with that ginormous steak, I'm going to not give them a good review. Of course, if I got raw lobster, that's worse. Really, you put bread crumbs and seasoning on it, and you all managed to screw it up? Multiple times?

    That scene before the collapse when the apartment owner showing all the cracks in her wall but on my TV it looked like a dark patch and, being here in the South, I thought "black mold!" I was never expecting the whole thing to collapse.
