    Now you know how I felt every time Carly talked about “Morris Code”. 😼 I really disliked nuValerie, but I’m not sure if it’s because of the actress or because I’m still mad about Brytni Sarpy. Because I am.

    I’ve not been a fan of this cult storyline (and I’m definitely not a Kristina fan) but I found the intervention session surprisingly affecting and I thought LA did a good job. I hope new psychiatrist guy sticks around. I like him.

    S08.E02: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

    I’ve forgotten, was Cersei #1 on Arya’s list? Because if so, it could very well be Arya who brings her down. Arya’s list was mentioned tonight, and I’m sure that wasn’t accidental.

    S08.E02: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

    I think there are necessary beats to hit, though, in order to complete each character’s story— or at least the main characters. I don’t see it as fan service, I think it’s responsible writing. Nobody wants to have a bunch of stuff left hanging. So in that respect, I think this was a fantastic episode. But as it seemed to bring certain character arcs to a close, it made me particularly nervous about those characters. For example, Jaime. His arc was mostly about redemption, and I think he has fully achieved that now. He doesn’t need to kill Cersei; Tyrion can do that. I think Jaime’s done. And Brienne: she has finally achieved the respect of her peers, and fulfilled her heart’s goal. I think Brienne’s done. I hope I’m wrong on both counts. As I watched Greyworm and Missandei, I had a feeling that when all is said and done, these could be the last two left standing. Nor do I. She is ambitious, determined, and decisive. That’s not mad, it’s strong-willed. As for her focusing on Jon’s claim to the throne rather than what it means for her love life, well, of course she did. Dany has always put her career first. Romance is nice, but it’s secondary to her. This was hilarious. NOT the way to win Brienne’s heart, dummy. I would so love to see a spin-off, Road Adventures with Arya and the Hound. That’s the couple I will miss most of all. Finally...GHOOOOST! Hope that final glimpse doesn’t mean he’s done, too.

    I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I don’t care about the morality of my soap characters. They can be as evil and immoral and manipulative as they want. All I ask is that they be interesting. I’m as fed up with Sonny, Jason, et al. as the rest of you. But not because they’re criminals. Because they’re boring and their stories never change.

    Stars In Other Roles: Doppelgangers!

    No, I was referring to Dylan Cash. I couldn’t remember his name when I made my last post. Here’s a screenshot. That’s him, right?

    Spoilers and Speculation: Clink Boom and Cheese Fondue

    I want it! I thought JL and MW had fantastic chemistry when he was playing Ryan. I’m interested to see if it holds when he’s Kevin.

    Apropos of nothing, Peter’s hair looks like a mushroom cap. It’s very distracting. I don’t know anything he and Maxie talked about on Friday, because I kept picturing him as Toad in Mario Kart.

    Stars In Other Roles: Doppelgangers!

    Does anyone here watch What We Do In The Shadows? I was just watching last Wednesday’s episode, and in the nightclub scene where Simon is introducing his vampire friends, he pointed to “Little Vlad” who I swear was original pumpkinheaded Michael. The role was uncredited and he had no lines, so I’m not entirely sure, but it looked just like him. “He’s a fucking maniac!”

    My money’s on Joss and Oscar singing the song together, but right before they get to the end, Oscar collapses and dies onstage. Because that sounds like just the right amount of melodramatic cheese for this show.

    S31E01: You're In Our Race Now

    Ha! We wondered about all the clear umbrellas at my house, too. I thought maybe they all stopped by the same street vendor. A quick Google check tells me that’s pretty close to accurate— the convenience stores all sell the same clear disposable umbrellas when it rains, and people like them because they don’t clash with any outfit. Minority, maybe, but you’re not alone. The constant whining drove me up a wall. What irritated me was Eliza and Corinne’s contempt of Rupert because “he’s so oooold.” Ladies, you are 37 and 40 respectively. Rupert is 55. Yes, you are younger than he is, but you’re not exactly teenagers yourselves. Also, you are far too old to be acting like bitchy prom queens. I kind of liked Eliza on Survivor for her expressive jury faces and general bluntness—“It’s a fucking stick!” never fails to make me laugh— but if this is what she’s really like, I’m totally over her.

    S31E01: You're In Our Race Now

    I’ve never seen BB, so I have no opinion about any of them...except for Rachel. Why, Show?? Why do you hate me? Of the teams I do know, it seems like they went out of their way to pick the most unlikeable people they could find. Colin? Corinne? Why stop there, were Russell Hantz and Flo (of Zach and- ) not available? For the shoe challenge, all I could think was, I’d hate to be one of the last teams there. Sure, there were a lot of shoes, but a lot of racers had to be chomping down on the same ones. How would you like to bite down on a heel that had fresh Rupert spit all over it? Most definitely. Once you take a penalty, all you can do is wait it out. So you better be sure.

    S38.E10 Blood of a Blindside

    This was perhaps the dullest episode of Survivor I’ve ever seen. OK, there were 2 blindsides, but they were handled in a fairly predictable manner. I can’t even find anything to snark at. And that means no fun in the Helens household. Please, Joe, just show up with a parrot on your shoulder one of these weeks. I mean... right?

    So Shiloh uses Valyrian Root in his potions? Does he buy it at Kings Landing Pharmacy? Lines of the day: Nina: “I’m so stupid!” Willow: “I’ve been passive for far too long.” Oh look, Lucas got let out of the attic today! Lucky for him, they needed someone to fulfill the role of Gay Yoda. Because, why else would he be there?

    What I meant was, wouldn’t he know she was a virgin and can recognize that their memories don’t line up? Or was Alex pretending to be a virgin? But how would she know? She and Anna didn’t even like each other, right? (I wasn’t watching then.) Bigger question is, why am I asking? Who cares? This has become so convoluted and beyond ridiculous that the writers need to wave a memory stick at themselves and forget this whole nonsense ever started.
