  1. Steve Martin's physical comedy alone in this episode is award-worthy. Can't wait for season 2!
  2. I feel like Nina in particular doesn't like when a plus size model wears something voluminous. Like she'll accept that fat people exist and are allowed to wear fashion, but she can't comprehend that a fat person wouldn't be super concerned about looking bigger than they are. I'm thinking of the finale with Mondo and Gretchen (Mondo was robbed!) and she and Michael were like personally offended that Mondo didn't change one of his designs that they thought made his model look bigger (it was a black column dress with big white polka dots and long sleeves, if I recall correctly). I hated the
  3. Yeah, I think next season ends with them winning...whatever the big game in British football is called. (Sorry, I barely know American sports.) I was rewatching the finale today and after they won, one of the announcers says that they're still the only premier league team to not have a trophy and I definitely think that line was put in there for a reason. I think they'll finally get their trophy and then Ted will move back to Kansas.
  4. Totally agree. They worked together for 25 years on the show, plus the time they worked together in the NYC courts. The very least she could have done is proactively tell him "Unfortunately there won't be a role for you on the new show," rather than being a weasel and waiting for him to approach her about it.
  5. That scene actually reminded me of when Roy came back because Nate too was wearing all back. And I think for Nate, the moment he felt obsolete was when Roy came back. I also think Nate's speech to Ted was bullshit. We've seen Ted be insensitive to Nate twice this season - once when he told him that he wasn't the big dog that Isaac needed to talk to (because he's not!) and then when Ted didn't immediately hug him after Jaime made a goal from the middle of the field. He's taken two times from a 10-month season (that's how long google tells me a British soccer season is) and just dwelled on
  6. I'm really liking the housewife friend who had the casino night party - Angie, I think. I like her style, both clothing (my taste runs tacky, so she had me at rhinestones and feathers) and demeanor. She confronted Lisa, which she should have, but was calm about it. Lisa's reaction shows that she 100% did what she's being accused of (I just hope she doesn't take this out on the catering company). It's also funny that she was so adamant that Meredith stay and talk to Jen when they were fishing, but then when Meredith and Jen wanted her to stay to talk to Angie, she wouldn't.
  7. This episode was...oof. Tough to watch. I feel like next episode Keeley and Roy are either gonna break up or get engaged. I don't like how everyone's all non-chalant about Sam and Rebecca considering she's more than twice his age and, more importantly, his boss. And this situation with the billionaire is exactly why they should have never gotten involved. Loved the Good Will Hunting "son of a bitch stole my move." That's my favorite part of the movie. And it was improvised! (But that's probably common knowledge at this point.) Laughed out loud at "This is Trent Crimm." "Th
  8. I agree, @DrSpaceman73, I think it was a plea deal. Good criminal lawyers are expensive, so I imagine he either had a shitty lawyer or an overworked public defender. A good lawyer could have gotten him off because there's literally no proof he murdered her, or even that she was murdered at all, but his own either shitty or overworked lawyer likely advised him that he could either do 10 years and be done with it or risk getting 25 to life. And Oscar seems smart, so knowing that his lawyer is either shitty or overworked, he decided not to take his chances, especially since the victim is a young,
  9. Jen's not even retweeting it, though. She's just liking the tweets, which means Meredith and Brooks have to go to her Twitter profile and then go to Likes to see it; it's not just showing up in their feed for them to see. Not to sound like I'm defending Jen, because I hate Jen, but Meredith and Brooks are actively seeking this out. Jen shouldn't be liking the tweets, but this is also way easier to ignore than a retweet. I get that Brooks is a "22-year-old child" πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„ but he's old enough to know that when you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
  10. When Meredith was wearing that plunging snake print shirt, I realized what her new implants remind me of: the Community episode where they're all telling scary stories and in Troy's story, Pierce's butt is sewn onto his chest. (Please note: I don't make fun when it's something naturally occurring or beyond a person's control, but those implants are a choice.)
  11. I definitely think the Man City Confessions are going to come up again, whether it's a press leak or not (though I tend to agree that it will involve the press because why else have Trent Crimm show up to the pub to ask Ted about why he walked off the field?). But it will definitely involve Nate somehow. I think Nate thinks he's the most professional Richmond coach/senior staff because his "confession" wasn't a "weakness" or a mistake like the other confessions. Nate also got angry when he found out Ted asked Roy to run practice while Ted was out and was salty that Ted and Roy were both missin
  12. If they break up Roy and Keeley I will not channel my raging enthusiasm into ways to help my community; I will burn this pub to the ground. But I don't think the show would be that predictable and trite. ETA: Jinx, @Trillium, lol.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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/
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  25. 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."
