    S04.E17: I'm in Love

    I also enjoyed Rebecca showing Paula how to access the songs. That was pretty fun.

    S04.E17: I'm in Love

    Well, for all my bitching and moaning the last few episodes...I will really miss this show and the concert special is so fun and I'm sorry I didn't get Radio City tickets... I'm glad they left it ambivalent (sort of) with the guys. (Greg and Nathaniel weren't "partnered up," right?) I can see how they would have had the ending figured out from the beginning because the ending is really...the beginning of the show and Rebecca's new life. I liked it.

    S04.E16: I Have a Date Tonight

    I would like to know what the original plan was. I seem to remember reading way, way back when the show started, that they (Rachel and Aline) had mapped out the four seasons. They knew it would be four seasons (and hoped the CW would give them four seasons), because they had it all outlined. I want to know how Greg would have fit into the four seasons. Because there's no way they knew from the pilot that Santino Fontana wouldn't want to do a TV series for more than one season (I read that somewhere recently; and that his wife is in NYC, etc.). They had to have been surprised. Right? Pure speculation: I can see that if Greg had been there for the entire four seasons, they would have had the typical rom-com love-hate situation. And then he would have been endgame, right? The snarky guy right in front of her the whole time! All this being said, I want her to end up with none of them. She and NuGreg can be buddies, Josh is her past, Nathaniel is a dream guy...but none of them works as endgame, IMO.

    S03.E18: Her

    My grandmother fell and hit the back of her head pretty hard and 30 years later she developed senile dementia. Doctors didn't know if the head injury was a factor, but it could have been. Right away I figured the accident and mention of an MRI was related to the flash forward and Rebecca's condition. Also, I liked that she was swigging coffee while Beth was making coffee in the present AND in the future. Just once, I think it would be fun for Rebecca to be singing along with "Candy" on the radio...just once!

    S03.E17: R&B

    This. The toll on her--especially with children to take care of, too--had to be overwhelming. She had no way of knowing if he'd recover, or if his episodes could be managed. How scary. As the partner of someone who's had multiple nervous breakdowns over the past 30 years, it's only recently that I've started to realize how much of a toll it's taken a toll on me. And we don't have children. (Thank god!) That whole thing a couple of weeks ago with Rebecca and Miguel saying they're moving to California and wouldn't be able to provide child care for Randall and Beth--well, that takes on new meaning for me because what a rejection that must have been for Randall, coming from the mother who clearly (hardly ever) said no to him. Wow. Also, he SHOULD be sleeping in Philly every night. That's where his job is! Those are his people! My mind is still blown that he was elected, given that he doesn't...oh, you know...LIVE THERE. (I happen to have a senator who now runs for president all the time and I will say no more.)

    S15.E18: Add It Up

    Does Owen know Koracic had a child? Somehow I think he doesn't have that information. Not that it's a huge deal, but Owen is an entitled dick and Tom was right: Teddy has never been number 1 for Owen. I also blame Teddy for not having someone page Koracic too--but that was just so Owen could leave Tom there at the birthing class, out of the loop. And so we could have the long-overdue confrontation. For people who are so smart, changing schools would be simpler than...oh, I don't know...SUFFERING in pain for the rest of your life. Deluca's methods were harsh, but he was right. "Her body, her decision?" Ridiculous mom. The whole episode felt strange and disjointed and kooky and not in a fun way.

    Masterchef Junior (US)

    Interesting. My only in-person experience is at the Apprentice finales and that's just a TV show, heavily produced like all TV shows. I wonder if other cooking shows--the ones that don't show the auditions--are a little less intense during that process. (I'm talking about Top Chef, I guess. Are they treated differently because they're "professional" chefs?) But we all suspected they cast these things, right? They're telling a narrative and characters have to fit that narrative. I do wonder how the Masterchef Junior auditions work. Thank god we don't see them. Starting with 24 is plenty. I do like that she never signed the contract. And now I wonder what Gordon smells like....

    Masterchef Junior (US)

    And the bearded lady! I'm not a fan of the hand tattoos either. I'm just watching Chopped for the first time (I know--WTF is wrong with me?) and a-RRRRRONE is but a dewy-eyed youngster, expecting his first (?) child. I wonder if they have to clear today's tats for every show or if he travels with a blanket release form. I wasn't a fan of Tosi's till I saw her Chef's Table episode, where she was...normal. So I enjoyed her clown banter. She should be able to dress like that if she wants, FFS. I thought Tal was Steak Boy, too. SO confused. I was thinking how unfair it was that he would get kicked off for a bad cake after cooking FIFTY-ONE steaks all by himself.

    I got whiplash from watching Gordon ream out a restaurant owner last week on "24 Hours to Hell and Back" and then be all smiles and giggles with these robotic children. Not all are robotic (IMHO) but there's something very artificial about the whole shebang. Has there ever been a behind-the-scenes, expose on this show, the BIGGEST COOKING COMPETITION IN THE WHOLE WORLD? There's gotta be dirt somewhere, please! I'm definitely pleased they don't show the audition process (not sure they ever did with this version, but I approve) and I'm fine with losing the little buggers, two by two... At this rate the show will be on for four weeks.

    S15.E17: And Dream of Sheep

    I watched Private Practice so I always liked the character--especially when St. Derek gave her shit. (Not a Derek fan here.) I also like her new haircut and I wanted Link to say "nice new 'do" or something. People on TV don't say shit like that, I guess. I imagined she tossed her head a little more to get him to notice, but nope. Nothing. I too thought Linc was sinister at first because he was introduced via Jo, and Jo had all kinds of shady past so it made sense. Now I agree with what someone upthread said: it's the sideburns and the generally shady hair. But he has Deep Thoughts and a Dark Secret Past with the childhood cancer and killing a patient (I'm overstating!) so I approve. I'm not thrilled they tumbled into bed immediately but I will be thrilled at Owen's reaction to their imminent PDAs. Because I despise Owen with the fire of 1,000 of Owen's red hairs. Teddy was getting interesting to me only because of Koracic, so if they go back down the Owen/Teddy road, those two head off to Germany tout de suite. (Was she rubbing her back and stomach a lot? Just me? No foreshadowing? Okey dokey.) Then Koracic can be with Meredith and all will be well. The End!

    S16.E15: Finale

    This finale was refreshing for me because of the lack of past shenanigans: I was sure that when the final two showed up to cook the day of the final meal, their sous chefs would be missing. That being said, I didn't like the elimination after the first-course "audition." Just have three finalists. A great season, IMO! I'll miss Top Chef but it's not the BIGGEST COOKING COMPETITION IN THE WORLD, aka MASTERCHEF JUNIOR! Off I go to snark...

    S03.E15: The Waiting Room

    Mandy Moore was on Marc Maron's podcast fairly recently and I believe she said it's all mapped out, through to the end. The actors may not know what happens but the guy who created the show does. (His name is escaping me right now. Dan. Dan Something. Fogelberg? Nope, wrong Dan.)

    S03.E15: The Waiting Room

    I assumed someone texted her--didn't she ask them to when she left?--about the baby while she was catburgularing the doll...

    S03.E15: The Waiting Room

    I took it as a more good-natured thing because I remember when he and Miguel and Beth got together in a bar that time and bonded up as they commiserated over their "outsider" status. Toby gets it, I think.

    S15.E16: Blood and Water

    Owen has done it! I care about Amelia now. Between him and Tom's kind-of seal of approval, I like Amelia. So much so that I don't want her to leave the show. (Not that she will.) But sometimes I fantasize she'll go to Europe and join forces with Christina Eve to hunt down Villanelle.
