    Bloody baby Jesus on a piece of motherfucking toast! Setting aside the fact that a replacement baby is a terrible idea, has this woman never heard of a goddamn sperm bank!? Have the writers? Which, good job with the writing a grieving mother, Show, make her a deranged rapist, that's what everyone is dying to see! I am in awe at your brilliance! I'm so amazed I might have to scoop out my eyeballs and soak them in bleach! Who would've thought that Liz marrying her precious serial killer wouldn't be the grossest thing happening?
  3. I was another kid who thought money laundering involved putting money in an actual washing machine. I think this made sense to me because I had a habit of leaving loose change and dollar bills in my jeans pockets and so my money frequently got laundered. What's embarrassing is that I'm still not sure how it works. I know money laundering means turning your illegally made money into money you can put in your bank account and declare on your taxes, and I know it involves some kind of "front" business, but I don't grasp the process beyond that, despite my lifetime of TV watching. I would make an absolutely terrible criminal.

    Seriously. And, you know not that I cared about their romance, but still, Oscar is barely cold. If they're trying to draw on this particular comparison, I'm pretty sure Robin wasn't making eyes at Jason within months of Stone's death. I know soaps are faster-paced than they used to be, but oy. On a better show, Joss would go to Robin to talk about the experience of your first love dying as a teenager. Or even Elizabeth. He Who Apparently Cannot Be Named wasn't really dead, but she spent a year thinking he was. Can you imagine Carly's head exploding if her daughter formed relationships with either of those two women? It would be worth it for that alone. I seem to have gone off on a tangent. Current show, current show. Is it me or is there something weird about Dev's eyebrows?
  5. I've been rewatching my DVDs of Forever, about an immortal coroner played by Ioan Gruffudd. It's as strong as I remember and really deserved a second season.

    Party of One: Unpopular TV Opinions

    That reminds me of an unpopular opinion of mine: I found every minute of Seinfeld I ever saw aggressively unfunny and its massive popularity baffles me to this day.

    S06.E03: The Other Shoe

    What I remember is Henry (or someone) telling Emma that Ashley had a stepmother and two stepsisters she "didn't talk to." So, no, not living with them. That does imply the stepfamily was in Storybrooke at the time, but, like you say with Anastasia, doesn't outright say so.

    You all remember when Franco kidnapped newborn Aiden right out of the hospital and Lucky rescued him? Doesn't that fill you with warm fuzzies about Franco being a daddy? As for Franco's "faults," they include serial murder, sexual assault and facilitating the rape of a teenage boy. Cam's reaction is warranted. If anything, it's understated. I hope he hates him forever. You guys know I can't even start on Lucky's deadbeat edit without lapsing into incoherent obscenities. FLAMES ON THE SIDE OF MY FACE.

    S06.E01: The Savior

    The Land of Untold Stories is a stupid name, right? Especially since Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is hardly some obscure tale. (Nor Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea or The Count of Monte Cristo or One Thousand and One Nights* or...) The Land of Unfinished Stories would be more accurate. Or, if all stories on the show are unfinished, the Land of Interrupted Stories? The Land Without Time? The Land of the Perpetual Pause Button? *I'm mildly surprised that they didn't do anything with Scheherazade being an Author. Or would that make too much sense? Not that I really wanted any more Author nonsense.

    S06.E02: A Bitter Draught

    That's what I wanted to see. You're right that there was angst to be mined from the previous season, but after all that sturm und drang I wanted Emma and Hook to be in a good place, happy together and kicking ass, enjoying their new lease on life, to use a cliché.
  11. Kyle Stephens' father killed himself when he became seriously ill, not when he realized the truth. I'm not saying the guilt of not believing Kyle didn't contribute to his suicide, but it's not so cut-and-dried. I listened to a podcast Kyle did, and apparently she and her father had somewhat reconciled before his death, after having been understandably estranged for years. She talked about how much she appreciated that, in the end, he would accept her expressing her anger towards him without making excuses or defending his actions.

    Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    I think super-rich parents (well, all parents, really, but they're not who we're talking about) would be better served by making sure their kids are educated on how to handle money in the first place. Of course grown-ass adults should be responsible for their own finances, but it's not like that kind of knowledge gets beamed into your head on your 21st birthday. Hell, I grew up working-class-on-the-edge-of-poor, and I still did dumb things about money once I was on my own. If someone has grown up wealthy enough that they can have everything they want and money isn't something they even have to think, much less worry, about; than of course they're not going to be perfectly responsible with their money later on.
  13. Jax and Carly got close after Courtney's (Jason's adoring ex-wife!) death, when they were keeping the secret of Baby "John's" (now Spencer Cassadine, son of Nikolas) paternity. Nikolas and Courtney had an affair while she was married to Jax, so there was a WTD story when she got improbably pregnant. (Apologies if I'm telling you something you already know.)
  14. I've lived all my life in the boonies. Lots of meth heads out here. Still, growing up we never locked our doors and I know plenty of people who still don't. I got in the habit of locking my dorm room door at college and since then I've always locked up at night. Still, my doors are unlocked all day when I'm at home and if I'm going to run to the grocery store or the post office really quick, I don't always lock the front door behind me.

    S05.E21: Last Rites

    Ingrid, yes. But Graham? He was murdered. By his abuser and rapist. I'd say that's unfinished business, besides his cut-off-before-it-could-start romance with Emma. Graham being Sheriff of Underbrooke (Instead of James, since they did nothing with him anyway, and come to think of it, he didn't really have unfinished business. I mean, the show said he did, but it didn't really make sense.) could have been a way to FINALLY expose Regina's crimes against him. But as we all know, the writers avoided that at all costs.
