  1. I can totally see how you having the opposite opinion going into this than I did made you look at it differently as well. I think the documentary did a great job of showing things without slanting it completely one way or the other. Michelle seemed to be two different people, I saw her as a lonely, desperate for acceptance teen in a sympathetic way and also in a very unsympathetic way. She also seemed to lack any remorse. I loved how the reporter said everyone there was looking to not be blamed (or however he said it exactly).
  2. I went into this having a very strong negative opinion of Michelle and by the end I was able to find some empathy for her (not her actions mind you). I thought the documentary did a good job of showing both sides even without the actual participation of Michelle or her family. The older psychiatrist (psychologist?) and the Esquire reporter had really good insight IMO. Before I watched the second half, it was obvious with Michelle and Conrad having a 95% texting relationship without the human contact made it easier to do and say things that if they were actually seeing the person face to face. She wasn't thinking in terms of real life consequences which played a huge part in this. I am not sure it would have had the same outcome if they had a typical relationship where they saw each other on a regular basis. I also wondered why they chose not to see each other but a handful of times. After watching the second half, my empathy came in seeing how obviously desperate she was for friends and even the pictures they showed of Michelle and the other girls, it was like she was on the outside clinging to them. I am sure it was painful hearing their testimonies although Michelle had an incredibly stoic face a majority of the trial. I saw her as SO many different things throughout and I am still not sure my exact feelings. I was, however surprised they were able to convict her on this because the key thing seemed to be how she 'said' she told him to get back in the f'ng car when that was one of the FEW things that wasn't in their text exchanges. Combine that with the fact they both seemed to have lied about various things (especially Michelle) I just could not fathom she was found guilty by the judge. She did deserve punishment in some form but I am not sure jail will reform her. SO many things factored in to this story, the parents, the violent episodes, the relationship with Alice, the many prior suicide attempts, the drugs, desperation, lonliness etc.... I am SO glad for these forums because i was wracking my brain trying to figure out who some of these people looked like and y'all were able to provide the answers......my husband and I did think the father could have been in the Wahlberg family although I could totally see Kennedy after it was pointed out.....

    On a shallow note.....I thought Kyle looked so pretty when she was sitting on her couch talking to Kim. I also thought Dorit looked great in her ponytail. Erika looked like she had super blue contacts on at the 6 month later brunch which to me added to her odd look.

    S04.E13: Christmas

    My husband and I just finished all 4 seasons on Netflix and will hopefully be able to figure out how to watch 5 ASAP. I absolutely love everything about this show! I was honestly a little depressed knowing I am about to have to leave the Schitt's Creek world for a while. This could have been a very generic 'fish out of water' show but it is SO much more and I love every character. I love that Moira is on the ditzy side but clearly isn't dumb, her accent kills me in the best possible way. If I had to pick a favorite it would be David but Alexis is a very close second. David's facial expressions are practically their own character. I love how he is sarcastic but kind. Alexis is also spoiled and flippant but clearly is smart and sweet. I love Johnny and Moira's very supportive and honest relationship. The townspeople are wonderful and although Roland isn't my favorite he has grown on me. Jocelyn is wonderful, Twyla is endearing. Ted and Patrick are the absolute perfect partners for Alexis and David. Stevie, I think does a great job of being both snarky and reluctantly caring. I have found myself crying, clapping and cheering out loud during these episodes and it breaks my heart season 6 will be the final. The concept of this show has been used many times but the writing and acting makes it one of the best shows I have ever watched.

    S06.E06: A Salt and Battery

    It really makes me respect Cam more that her husband isn't on the show. She deserves to have a life outside of the camera's and to keep certain aspects personal. Back when Ozzie and Sharon had their show, the oldest daughter refused to be on the show if I remember right. Plus with editor manipulation being able to make a person look good or bad, it is just too risky if you have an actual career that doesn't need to be promoted.

    S06.E06: A Salt and Battery

    I came here to say pretty much the same thing. Craig isn't cruel. I know he and Naomi had some scenes where he could be a jerk to her but she could be one as well. Shep and Whitney both disgusted me during this episode......I remembered why Whitney was much more likable in VERY small doses. I find it hard to believe if he were in all these punk rock bands that he kept to a strict diet..... I really like Chelsea but bringing up going into partnership with Austen's ex is a little odd. I wanted Austen to take up for Craig but in all honesty they would have just piled on him and not taken any responsibility.

    S09.E19: Thirst Impressions

    DORIT!!! I have seen glimpses of the girl we saw last night throughout her time on the show! I have tried to like her a few times in the past, hopefully she will be on a longer streak of likability this time. Was she the one who told Kyle this is why her acting career didn't take off past the age of seven (paraphrasing) while she was doing the imitations? I thought Kyle looked beautiful in the color green she wore last night but again, if you have to constantly adjust your top, it doesn't fit properly. I still like Erika....she is what she is. I have hormonal migraines and sometimes I can function and sometimes I can't. I was proud of her for even going to the wine tasting and yes, if you don't feel well to begin with and are around a bunch of drunk people when you are sober, it isn't the best time. Factor in them trying to box her into how they wanted her to feel, I would have been annoyed as well. Lisa R didn't really bother me last night. She is horrible at times but seems fun. Teddi......I do not know where she came up with thinking she was everyone's moral compass and it was exhausting her. This is where Rinna showed some kindness......she handled Teddi's drunken pity party with compassion. All in all I thought last night was a pretty fun episode.

    Let somebody even hint at something negative about my husband and my claws would come out too!

    S06.E04: Barking Up the Wrong Tree House

    I'm not sure why people don't believe it....? They hooked up in season 1 and she supposedly even lived at his house for a couple weeks. It's easy to go back to a previous hookup. A couple of reasons......me personally as I have stated in another episode post, the fact that Whitney (and Patricia) have said horrible things about/to Kathryn makes it hard to believe she would just jump into bed with him. Also, several people think Whitney is gay. Now that I am rereading my first statement......she did procreate again with Thomas under basically the same circumstances. She needs help. I still am in the camp of the hookup being BS.

    S06.E03: Slide Into Your Dms Like . . .

    I agree about the lack of parties and real estate. Kathryn's place isn't decorated at all like any of the fabulous Charleston homes I have seen in pictures...her place is pretty generic comparatively. I don't expect it to be like Patricia's (a bit too stuffy IMO) but more like Brandon Branch's home from SC Savannah (or even Haygood's). If you have money for $6,600.00 in rent and a flipping Rolls Royce, you should have way better furnishings. I have all but forgotten Craig isn't originally from the south. He does seem like a really sweet guy but he is more of a 'house cat' (as Chelsea's dad said) than Austin. He is by far the most handsome guy on the show. I do not miss JD. I miss season one and two Thomas. Shep will continue to get women simply because he is wealthy and now famous. I still cannot help but like Cam. They need to just make her solely the Greek Chorus and punt this fake story line. I think she has probably struggled a bit going from carefree to having the responsibility of a child as a lot of women (and men) do, but this is blown out of proportion, I am sure. Add me to the list of never wanting to see Austin's threesome tape again. Ugh.

    I ordered a necklace off of Naomie's site last week.....a lot of things were sold out. The necklace arrived within two days in super cute packaging. She modeled a lot of the clothes on Labeye.

    S09.E16: Meet Rinna Jayne

    I have noticed a ton of Kyle shaming for her costume but no mention of Camille's outfit? I personally thought both women looked great but Kyle has taken much more heat on this. I know the whole 'Playboy Bunny' angle but in the big picture, it was a party, she looked pretty, her husband was fine with it so good for her. I honestly didn't notice LVP wasn't on the show last night until reading through this board! I was surprised at how Denise was with Kim, I would have expected her to be a little more of a peacemaker and not take such a hard stance.

    Booksmart (2019)

    I was on the fence about this movie.....loved both of the lead girls......I adore the kid who played Jared! The girl who played Hope (the hookup of Amy) looked just like a young Liv Tyler. I did not think Ryan was cute at all (agreed with the above poster). Parts of the movie were funny but nothing spectacular. It was worth seeing but nothing I would watch again.

    S10.E11: Training Spaces

    This was horrible! All of the contestants were pretty and that was it......the guy who actually won did seem to have actual design talent based on the pictures they showed of his actual work (not on the show). The overalls girl was rude, the first two with the stools/benches? were not good.....the washcloth light fixture which would have caught on fire if it was actually turned on?!?!? Let alone it was hideous. The way the 'judges' acted like everyone's designs were actually good?!?!? Thank goodness for DVR to be able to ff through most of this God awful insult to viewers of a show.....not that the actual show is too much better. Hildi is stunning though.
