  1. Yeah, no. Being a fair-weather friend is dropping a friend because they're depressed and aren't as fun as they used to be. It's not deciding you don't want to associate with a criminal who "sold β€˜lead lists’ of innocent individuals for other members of their scheme to repeatedly scam." Friendship only takes us so far and, frankly, if someone decides to stay friends with a person who ruined hundreds of lives, that doesn't speak particularly well of them either.
  2. Yeah, 50% of me is like, "Come on! Everyone knows MLM's are a scam!" And the other 50% recognizes that it is mostly women who are taken advantage of by these and this is like where capitalism and the patriarchy intersect to fuck over women. Yeah, I agree. I don't think I even heard of Lularoe until maybe a year ago. They probably thought it was a corporate gig just like other ones I'm sure they've done before (well, like I'm sure Kelly Clarkson has done before). It was interesting to learn what, legally, is the difference between an MLM and a pyramid scheme. When the deluded wom
  3. Agree with everything you said, Kitten Poker Cheater. I loved when they were all at Bones and Honey (that name! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) and talking to the snooty Oxford alums. I honestly don't get what the show wants us to think about Beard and Jane. Are they toxic or should they be together? Maybe they're being intentionally ambiguous. This was probably my least favorite episode so far, but even a "bad" Ted Lasso episode is still better than most other things on tv. And Coach Beard's dope new pants kind of make it all worth while.
  4. I started watching this interview on Jimmy Kimmel with Hannah Waddingham and they started with a Ted Lasso clip and I was like, "Wait a minute, this is from an episode that hasn't aired yet." So, very minor spoiler alert.
  5. I think I read this in the Vulture episode recap, but Heather's business Beauty Lab provides free laser treatments for track marks and self-harm scars, which is pretty awesome: https://beautylablaser.com/dont-leave/
  6. I feel like Small Talk should be "It's just a group of people who care, not unlike folks at a hip-hop concert whose hands are not in the air." Though that's a little wordy. Also love the idea of a favorite lines thread. I always have at least three favorite lines per episode.
  7. If Meredith did play a part in helping take Jenn down, I say good for her. This isn't like telling on her because she shoplifted some Cover Girl lipstick. Jenn is a legitimately bad person who conned hundreds of people. And she would have continued to do that had she not gotten busted. But honestly, I might hate Mary even more than Jenn. I'd be interested to know who has ruined more lives and taken more money, Jenn or Mary. Here's hoping her downfall is next.
  8. Ohhhh, good call. When Charles told that story, I thought it was pretty extreme and shitty of the mom to take her daughter away from a parental figure who clearly loved her, in the middle of vacation no less. But that would be a good reason to do something that extreme.
  9. Even though this episode was the most serious of the season, it still had several laugh out loud moments: Roy walking in on people talking about him twice and not caring that they were talking about him Higgins and Rebecca scatting when Roy walked in The team being invested in Sam's bantr DMs Colin asking "Pedophiles?" when Nate mentioned Picasso and Gauguin Coach Beard surprising Nate first thing in the morning (wearing the hat Jane gave him) and then disappearing Roy shouting "Whistle!" and explaining "My lips are sensitive to impure metals and whistles gi
  10. Ha! I turned on closed captioning and she said brat sails. I guess I just had butts on the brain because of the earlier scene with Hunky Luca.
  11. There were so many lines that made me laugh out loud this episode: "It really takes the anger wind out of his butt sails." "I don't really know how to talk to you." "If we actually win this match, I will burn this pub to the ground...I will knock over a chair...I will channel my raging enthusiasm into ways to help my community." Higgins' gagging noises will never not make me laugh. Hunky Luca is indeed very hunky. Get it, Rebecca! I don't love the idea of Rebecca and Sam because he's so young. His 20th birthday was in the first season, so I assume he's only 21 now.
  12. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  13. Haha, but at least we're getting 10 or more episodes a season and not just like six. It reminds me of one of my favorite lines from The Good Place, "It ran for 16 years on the BBC; they did nearly 30 episodes."
  14. I haven't said anything about Ted and Rebecca and I don't think it would be *horrible* but I definitely don't want the pairing. For me, putting the two opposite sex main characters in a romantic relationship is a cliche. I think platonic relationships between grown men and women aren't explored nearly enough in tv shows and movies. Plus, it just seems lazy, like we don't know what else to do with these characters, so we're going to have them date. They've already paired up Roy and Keely, who I love separately and together, so just leave it at that. Having said that, I trust the Ted Lasso
  15. I don't think it was Ted either, but I can't see it being Rupert. I don't think he would be on an app where he can't see how hot and/or young the women are. I definitely also thought the restaurant was being racist to Nate, especially when he went in to make the reservation and the hostess said she had to go ask the manager if she could give him the table. I loved how big Isaac smiled when he saw Roy on the field. It'll be interesting to see how new coach Roy and newly humbled(-ish) Jaime interact now.
