    Rugby

    Go Ireland! So England ends their run tied with the All Blacks for the record. Nothing against England particularly, but with St. Patrick's Day yesterday and now this, it's a good week to be (somewhat) Irish. LOL

    S01.E15: Jack Pearson's Son

    My mom's comment was that Kevin was afraid Randall was going to commit suicide. Did anyone else think that? I didn't on first watch, but viewing that clip again, there was this exchange: That does seem rather ominous.

    S01.E15: Jack Pearson's Son

    Kevin definitely should have said something to Sloane, but it's one of those plot contrivances that I don't really blame the character for. They wanted to have a moment of suspense - will Kevin go on? Is he running away because he thought he was going to bomb? No! He's running to help Randall! Awwww... (It was completely telegraphed, but that's clearly what they were trying to do.) It's just not as effective if Kevin takes Sloane aside five minutes before the curtain and calmly explains where he's going. Ditto for Kevin having Kate or Rebecca go check on Randall while he went on with the show. Yes, that would make sense, but the beauty (and the drama) were in the sacrifice. And juxtaposed against those powerful moments of Teen Kevin watching Teen Randall cry and hyperventilate, before silently walking on. And poor Randall hearing the door latch click and realize his brother saw him and just kept moving. Heartbreaking.

    "You are de-twinned." Ha! Love me some Kevin, young and not so young.

    S01.E04: The Clockwork Prince

    I agree with you completely, when viewed from my 2017 perspective. However, Albert isn't the only one in-show who holds this view. Even Lord M made comments on several different occasions about Victoria being "guided" by her husband, "looking to her husband" for council instead of himself, etc. Which I agree doesn't make much sense if the husband is the same age as her, but that certainly seemed to be the opinion of the time.

    S01.E04: The Clockwork Prince

    I'm not sure what they were trying to say in that scene, but these theories are as good as anything I've come up with. I definitely DID think they were supposed to be sisters, though. I really wish they hadn't bothered with the downstairs plot overall. I agree with the person upthread who suggested the time would have been better spent with her ladies-in-waiting. That's a position I've never really seen explored, as opposed to the servant angle, which was so fully brought to light in Downton and in Upstairs, Downstairs before that. I don't even know her ladies' names, there's just the one who looks like Laura Benanti and does all the talking, and some other people. They're all brunette, too, which doesn't help! I bought Victoria and Albert's chemistry, and I'm glad the "romance" with Melbourne is over, as much as I like Rufus Sewell. The only other thing I've seen Tom Hughes in is Silk, where he didn't get much to do, so he's a clean slate for me. He's a little intense and quiet, but I thought it was a nice contrast to everyone else who are constantly blathering nonsense. Everyone thinking they should get married based on one piano duet! So silly. I have a new favorite word: Waldeinsamkeit.

    These Are the Previews and Sneak Peeks

    Promo for 01x13 - "Three Sentences"
  13. This is the place to discuss any previews and/or sneak peeks for future episodes. Since it seems like a lot of people want to discuss ahead of the episodes, it's kind of overwhelming the individual threads before they even air. Let's put all of that talk in here. Thanks!

    S01.E12: The Big Day

    The Social Issues topic would be a great place for all of this "Millennials vs. Gen Xers" talk, y'all. It's not really on topic for this episode. Cheers!

    My UO: I'm fine with Kevin living with Randall. It keeps Kevin interacting with the others in a natural way. If he got an apartment in Manhattan, I feel like he'd end up like Kate did - cut off from the rest of the storylines and essentially being in a different show with Sloan and the play. His interactions with Randall's family are always some of my favorite moments of the episodes, and his lines generally inject some humor into stories that are otherwise pretty heavy. Of course, if these were real people, I'd tell him to use some of his apparent mountain of cash to get his own place already! And real or not, he needs to stop being a putz.
