  1. Watched some of the latest Ty and That Guy podcast, which featured the cinematographer and one of the cameramen. Their discussion reminded me how much I loved the cinematography in this episode. The opening shot of Lake Winnepesaukee in particular is gorgeous.
  2. They cover this and more - including Roger Howarth's discomfort with Todd becoming a romantic lead of the show.
  3. Slate's Decoder Ring podcast has an episode on the Marty Saybrooke rape storyline. The episode is called The Soap Opera Machine. Episode description: On this episode, we investigate the wild world of soap operas through the lens of one legendary, decadeslong, ripped-from-the-headlines storyline. The rape of One Life to Live’s Marty Saybrooke* dared to combine the melodrama of soaps with a serious examination of sexual assault, and over time it morphed from an award-winning story about believing victims into a redemption arc for the rapist at its heart. This is the story of the peopl
  4. Ned Beatty, who (among many other things, obviously), had a memorable appearance in the season 19 episode "Zero," passed away today.
  5. I love the bond between Amos and Clarissa shown in this episode. It's one of the things I enjoyed most about season 5. I liked their talk about Clarissa's "I am not a monster" prayer and how they are not good people. At first, their friendship seems strange, but then the more they interact, the more natural it seems.
  6. I like that the cliffhanger was about Robyn's relationship with her daughter. Ended up enjoying this show a lot more than I thought I would.
  7. I really resent them trying to make me watch the terrible Organized Crime. Decent episode, although my eyes did glaze over when Simon came up. I mean, Liv barely gave him a second thought, so how could the writers expect me to care? I liked the actress playing Jade. Feel like I've seen her somewhere before.
  8. That was really good! I liked seeing some movement in the dynamic between Robyn and Dante and getting more about Dante's life (the scene with his sons was cute) I also loved Aunt Vi's subplot. When she told Dee "Why limit it!" I howled. Get it, Aunt Vi.
  9. My pleasure! It's such a fun podcast. They are into the minutiae of GG the same way we are :-)
  10. Sharing the podcast Enough Wicker. The hosts discuss each GG episode from a kind of sociological perspective. The love they have for the show comes through in every episode.
  11. Kind of underwhelming. I liked the action scenes in the first half, but the stakes weren't clear to me. I enjoy Sharon, and kind of wish she'd had more to do this season. Surprised they killed off Karli. I thought they'd make Sam her mentor and he'd bring her around from the dark side.
  12. Nothing makes my eyes glaze over faster than the words "Benson in a hostage situation"
  13. European Super League collapsing as all six English clubs withdraw Despite this development, I don't think this is the end of the Super League idea.
  14. This is a great list! TNG's Timescape is such a great, fun episode. The mystery is compelling, and I love the combination of characters (Troi, Data, Geordi, and Picard). DS9's Past Tense is one of my favorite time travel episodes ever. A very Star Trek plot and trenchant social commentary - that is still relevant!
  15. So, 12 of Europe's top clubs have announced they're forming a Super League. I know this has been coming for a while, but it's still shocking to see an actual announcement.
  16. Ordinarily, Mourihno's latest sacking would be the top story. But the ESL news has overshadowed everything else.
  17. I like seeing Carl Lumbly in this show. The scene between Isaiah and Sam was the best part of this episode. Bucky flirting with Sarah was fun, though Sam clearly didn't think so.
  18. Based on a clip I saw, this looks like an episode that will make me want to throw things.
  19. But wait...how was this ever an SVU case?
  20. Whew - I'm tired of Dollar Store Cap. I liked the flashback to Bucky and Ayo in Wakanda. Good work by Sebastian Stan in that scene. Also, I did not know I needed a scene of Ayo and Bucky going toe-to-toe. I'm thinking the Dora Milaje might need their own series. Good episode for Sam. I liked his talk with Karli. Xemo slipping out while the Doras fought everyone else was amusing.
  21. Thanks for all the helpful comments! One follow-up question: do we know if the first season will cover the first book, or will it go beyond that?
  22. Yeah, it was pretty obvious that he was the culprit, but it was still enjoyable to see Robyn untangle it all. Continuing to enjoy this show. Queen Latifah is a delight, and Robyn's daughter has even grown on me.
  23. I've not read The Wheel of Time series, but I've been asked by a friend who's a huge fan of the books to watch and tell her how it is. She loves the books so much, she is nervous about watching this series and having it disappoint her. So I am completely new to this story and world. Any thoughts on what I can expect?
  24. My random thoughts on the finale. Bobbie's rescue of Naomi was fantastic! Hearing Bobbie’s muffled voice was like a balm. Alex’s death being abrupt was necessary due to the allegations against Cas Anvar; but I also think it works in the context of the show. This is a universe where space travel is always dangerous, so Alex stroking out after a high-g burn is right in line with everything we’ve been shown about the dangers of spaceflight in this world. The space battle between the Tynan, the Serrio Mal, and the Koto sure looked amazing – even if I didn’t understand much of what w
