    I'm pretty sure it was a man who was running away.
  2. I came in here just to see if other people thought this episode was really weird. The onslaught of flashbacks, the framing of some scenes was really weird, the random strangers we're supposed to care about, Irish's backstory spilled out in short vignettes.
  3. At first I was thrown off by just how quick they decided to go through the door (Jason was gone within the first 15 min of the episode) but it felt right. I'm completely on board with the whole idea of too much of a good thing and having the choice to move on... I don't find it depressing, it's peaceful to me. I can understand why it's seen the other way but I guess it falls back onto the different schools of thought - whether you believe you're part of a bigger picture and life is just a moment, or you think you have a greater purpose. Neither is wrong and the show had a difficult position to have to chose one. I'm happy with what they chose. I was completely cool until the wave speech and just sort of sobbed and then stopped and then started again when Eleanor went through and I have a headache now. It's nice though
  4. The bullshit aside of these shitty people throwing Janet under the bus for things they told her to do... are these people really pretending that personal preferences of people don't affect who they vote out? The first half of the game is 'i don't like them so I vote them'. Now suddenly bringing up "I am deeply uncomfortable and I'd like to not exist this way anymore" is too personal and should be left out of gameplay? This was the most frustrating episode of Survivor in a long time. This was such a picture of our generation - lots of "I have a mother" "I work with women" and the person who speaks up about their uncomfortableness and the man who supports her both get voted out. Perfect.
  5. Truffle mushrooms are $95/oz (white truffles being almost twice as much) so those are a steal
  6. They were trying to get there but you could tell neither of them could remember the name Misery - they said something along the lines of 'she kept the guy in her house'. I still despise the Song Sung Wrong game.
  7. Shelter houses often refuse food that's open and/or potentially contaminated. Thunder Oak certainly couldn't sell it straight out - particularly how the girls were cutting it.
  8. I read an interview with the judge from the Thunder Oak Cheese Farm and he said "They went through four wheels. It was insane... We couldn’t use any of the leftover cheese, so the camera men asked ‘This is garbage, right?’ and started munching on them.”(X) So it did get eaten at least!
  9. They landed when it was still dark and with them leaving the house after midnight, it would be a six hour trip max... unless they did go out to the water and it was a nearly 24 hour trip for them to land in the dark again.
  10. Being jealous in this situation is normal. I literally said in the sentence before that this wasn't normal dating.
  11. But that's not what happened. Hannah went on a date with someone she is dating and went bungee jumping with him. Period. She didn't go on a date while she was married. She is dating. That is the show. None of this is 'normal dating'. The guys can be jealous all they want - whether it's the naked bungee, the straddling make outs, whatever. That is normal and fine. But Luke clearly had the issue with her being naked with another man because she was supposed to be his and being naked is only for marriage and she should respect the fact that he decided she is his now. That is his issue.
  12. "ABSOLUTELY not." I love peace and love people who know when a game is a game.
  13. Hester... makes a version of the same jacket she wore when she was designing it... what are the judges smoking when it comes to her. I don't get why the one judge was harping on Tessa's design ~telling a woman what her body should look like when she literally traced the model's body. It was definitely a way to force her into telling her story and it's just annoyingly obvious.
  14. Only two people in the world can make me root for Rachel to get to the mat faster. Congrats Corinne and Eliza. God help the people in your lives that put up with you.
  15. Re: Peter, I think ever since he said he didn't want to be Bachelor and the response by TPTB was all WELL WE WOULD NEVER ASK YOU, he's probably on their shit list. Also, Rachel's had a bad reaction to people sympathizing with him over her, so given she's in the Bachelor family moreso, the show has probably some unwritten agreement to pretend he doesn't exist
  16. Nicole doesn't even seem to like Hayden, their dynamic is so strange to me Peace out, Rupert 'strongest survivor ever' Funny, young me had such a crush on Colin despite his anger issues. Now old me sees all the red flags but also does not care for the zen version. But hey, it works for the two of them and they do seem sweet together.
  17. For some reason, I wouldn't be surprised if next season we found out that Alexis never got on the plane... there was something very off to me about how she said bye to Ted. But maybe that's me reading into it because everything has been screaming out that she didn't want to go. Otherwise, a cute finale. I teared up with Stevie hitting her big moment. I also felt her entirely with her 'everyone is living their life around me' mentality as I am going through something very similar. I need a crazy Moira pep talk.
  18. Sweet potato fries, when made right (and with a good garlic aoli) are amazing. When made wrong, they're terrible. While normal fries, even wrong they're still pretty good (except crinkle fries can GTFO)
  19. I don't understand (well i know why) they made such a big deal out of Afa's model being cold and Hester's model was wearing just as little. I hate when in unconventional challenges they give them some sort of fabric (whether it's sleeping bags, tarps, seat belts, etc) and then... complain about them using those products.
  20. So she was ELEVEN? I mean, living the dream of my younger self, but still. Also, texting in 1999? I didn't have a cellphone until 2005 but man was she ahead of the time.
  21. That sort of threw me because as a previous Josh Hartnett stan during the Pearl Harbor years... how old is Alexis? I always pinned her around my age, perhaps a couple years older and I would have been like, 12 when that movie was filming (it came out in 2001 so would have filmed 1999ish). If she was of age, that would put her at 37/38 now.
  22. It was Chelsea Handler
  23. The acting in the first episode, outside of Jon and Alexa, has me nervous for my enjoyment of the rest of the season. There's something very off and... annoying...about the blonde girl and the 'baddies' (outside of the main guy who I have seen in other things before). Which is strange since most of the time the acting in Marvel Netflix shows is pretty solid. I'm hoping it's first episode jitters because otherwise I'm in for a long 13 episodes.
  24. The Christmas movie that I have to watch every year would be Grinch - both cartoon and Jim Carrey. Others I'll watch if I come across them or if I'm in the mood, but some have lost appeal over the years. But Grinch always makes my heart grow three sizes. Funnily enough, I was reading back through this thread and found that I had commented the exact same thing four years ago...
  25. I read that it was 11 min long so it must clock in at the longest. I personally was impressed with the things that Charlie Cox did do in the scene that I can overlook the times where it was just the back of his head so his double could be the one slammed against the wall.
