    S17.E10: All-Star Duets (1) (2019.04.08)

    I thought the same thing. It was so awkward without it and one of the best parts of the song. I though Katy Perry was wondering too because when they cut to her, she had a look on her face like, "Did they mess up?"

    S17.06: Hollywood Week (1)

    To me, that's sort of the method behind the madness. If they can't handle the sleep deprivation and stress at this point when they're relatively fresh and rested, then they probably won't make it for the long haul. I think Idol is as much a mental competition as it is a singing competition.

    The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann

    I cannot imagine that child wasn't killed fairly soon after she was taken. The most likely scenario to me is that a local pedophile or one on vacation spotted Maddie and stalked her. It wouldn't take long to figure out the pattern of the kids being left alone. He swooped in and snatched her, did what he intended, and then killed her. I'm sorry to be so grim, but it would be incredibly easy to get rid of a 3-year-old's body. Even if she was taken with no intention of killing her, with the worldwide coverage the case gained, she would either have to be in a basement somewhere or killed pretty soon after she was taken to avoid detection. I thought it was an interesting point by one of the policemen that publicizing the information about her eye was almost certainly signing Maddie's death warrant. But I'm sure it's agonizingly hard to know the right thing to do in that situation.

    S17.05: Auditions (5)

    Oh, gawd, y'all, I did it! I made it through five episodes of the Katy Perry show and the search to find the best singers among trauma survivors. Anyone remember the old TWOP where you had to read the last 15 pages of a thread before posting in it? That's what watching the auditions is like. You just slog on through so you know the basics. Unfortunately, like many others, I can't quit this show, but I do think if there's another season, I will just skip the auditions and pick up during Hollywood Week. I really will not have missed a thing, and I think I'll enjoy the show a lot more.
  5. Thanks for replying. I guess my question wasn't clear. Did they explain voting and how the final winner would be picked? I don't recall that coming up, and I thought maybe that was cut out of the Hulu version, but I could have been distracted for sure and missed it.
  6. I admit I haven't read all the responses, but I watched this on Hulu, and I was curious how the winner was chosen from the final 3. I don't recall seeing anything about that in the Hulu version. I know during the regular shows the audience voted and then the panel had the final say, but that didn't seem to be the case here.

    General True Crime Shows

    Anyone watching Abducted in Plain Sight on Netflix? I got rid of my cable, so I haven't been here much. Hope we can discuss Netflix shows.

    Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

    I've resisted Netflix for ages. Don't know why. Old dog/new trick. Anyway, one thing I've noticed about binge-watching shows is that some things become very annoying and repetitive. I guess that's why they have a "skip intro" option. I wish I could skip all the coming to the door, greeting each other stuff. It feels like it takes up way too much of the show.

    Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

    Have to agree with this. Just this morning, I threw out a dress my daughter has had for a few years and is just worn out. It is so "her," and there are a lot of memories attached to it, but do I really need to keep it in my attic in a box for the next 50 years? No. So thanking it for its service and its memories made tossing it much easier.

    Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

    Well, now I feel kind of bad because after poking around on Rachel Friend's Instagram, it appears one of her children is special needs, which makes the being overwhelmed with two kids make more sense. I don't think they addressed that in the episode. I didn't catch it if they did. Maybe they should have. Wonder if she's depressed.

    Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

    I've watched a few more episodes, and I have to agree with a previous poster who said the main issue with this show is that it's mostly about people I really don't care to get to know so well. I wanted to hear about Marie Kondo and her techniques. And the three visits with their three separate greetings is just twee and annoying after a while. Cut to the chase.

    Because in the parenting Olympics, if you breast feed, baby wear, and co-sleep, you've won. Just wait until their hormones kick in, babe. (No disrespect to anyone who does those things, but you just know she's "that mom" that out-moms all the moms)

    Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

    I miss that show too! But my annoyance with the mom on the first episode is making sense now because I could not stand those sisters. I liked the dad though.

    Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

    Working 50 to 60 hours a week. What the hell was she doing? She's a SAHM with two kids and has to hire someone to do laundry? And, yes, I was a SAHM with two kids who was not the greatest housekeeper, but damn, girl, buck up and do the basics for your family. Because you know she has a housekeeper as well. If your kids are running you that ragged, you need to start teaching them how to play independently. ETA: @MoreCoffeePlease, I hope you don't think my vitriol was geared towards you. That mom just really bugged me, and I had to vent.
