  1. Brooks Darnell (former Nate) is going to be in a Hallmark movie tomorrow night called A Winter Getaway. He was also recently in the Lifetime Christmas movie Let’s Meet Again on Christmas Eve https://www.instagram.com/p/CKSw-_SAIsk/?igshid=fh3ms33i063u
  2. I enjoyed this, but was a little disappointed in her first case. It felt a bit rushed at the end. I want to see more of her investigations and not so much “here’s all this information that I suddenly found off camera so Boom! I solved it!” I know the first episode is always about the setup so hopefully the remaining episodes will be better on that front. I enjoyed the humor and the chemistry between the two leads.
  3. Actually, we did hear about one nameless offscreen romance because Brooke mentioned that she was leaving to spend some time cheering up Hope after a recent breakup. We never got any further details.
  4. The only point Hope missed today was when she said, “when your marriage to Liam ended.” Hope should have totally said that Steffy’s marriage to Liam ended when she slept with Bill. That would have shown Steffy’s pattern more. I personally think something should be said about Steffy’s sobriety and choosing to drink with Liam and making bad decisions after just recently returning from rehab.
  5. The GSN version airs every day at 2pm (Central) right before Master Minds
  6. Holzhauer has a connection to the GSN version. Both he and his wife competed on it (separate episodes) before he competed on Jeopardy. I’m a fan of the GSN version as well as Brooke and The Beast. I think the Jeopardy champs lack the snark and arrogance mixed with humor that The Beast brings to the table. He could come across as a complete asshole, but then you realize he has this more warm and fuzzy side. Ken has tried to up his snark on Masterminds, but it usually falls flat. I think it’s going to be the same here. I’d rather they just give up the weird nicknames and exaggerated characters on this one. The Jeopardy champs are more imposing when they just show their speed and knowledge. Personality is not where they shine and for that reason they should not bother with the lounge thing. I too miss Brooke’s speed here and she also was good at building drama. Not a fan of Sara here. I think she wastes a lot of the contestants’ time.
  7. I’m watching the first episode now. It’s interesting so far.
  8. After posting here last night I decided to watch an episode of Miranda on Amazon Prime. I see now what they were going for with Kat, but the execution is not there. In the episode I saw of the original, the whole cast was in on the silliness and it was actually funny. On Kat, it seemed like everyone was just shaking their head at Kat being weird. I think the writers are going to have to figure out how to make it work for the ensemble as well as what’s funny for an American audience. The constant spit takes are just off putting, especially before they even give us a chance to get to know the characters. I hope they can make adjustments and just focus on what is really funny.
  9. Leslie Jordan was the best thing about this episode. I’ve loved him for a long time and his recent posts during the lockdown were awesome. It’s time he had a larger role in a show. I have to agree with everyone here that the slapstick stuff and the 4th wall breaking were overdone. I don’t mind her being awkward, but I think there are better ways to convey that. I’d much rather have smartly written humor. I never saw Miranda that this is based on, but I read that show was about the main character being taller than everyone. This show is supposed to focus on Mayim being short and awkward. About cat cafes, they have been popping up all over the country the past few years. You can adopt the cats at the cafe or just pay to spend time petting them. Some people find the cafes relaxing and it’s an alternative if someone can’t have a pet in their home. This episode was not great, but I’m willing to give it more episodes before bailing.
  10. Carrie Ann posted an update on her Instagram account https://www.instagram.com/p/CIoP6tTB7iF/?igshid=17eh062fqnkr7
  11. I don’t know if I’m completely sold on Amanda being a new host, but at the same time I can’t be mad at her for taking the job. Broadway performers are not super rich to begin with and I can only imagine the hospital bills associated with her husband’s illness. She’s suddenly a single mother and can’t go back into acting right now because of Covid. She has her yoga business, but I’m sure a hosting gig like this will mean a more steady income for her. Circumstances thrust her into the spotlight and she’s been handling it as well as anyone could. Did the Talk producers initially book her because her story had been in the news? Sure, but they wouldn’t have invited her back if she hadn’t gotten such a positive response from the audience. I think it’s unfair to tell her that she should just be sad and hide from everyone. There’s no rule book on how a grieving person should act and maybe she’s putting on a brave face in public so that she can provide for her son. I’m not going to judge someone on going back to work after losing a spouse.
  12. Pierson Fode (former Thomas) is filming the movie The Man From Toronto with Kevin Hart, Woody Harrelson, and Kaley Cuoco. https://www.instagram.com/p/CIG6uTnj5p4/?igshid=519cak9oybg7
  13. The actress playing Miranda also was Missy/The Master on Doctor Who.
  14. The actress is pregnant so I’m sure that is playing a part in how she looks right now.
