  1. I think she was comparing her son to her husband. Basically useless....but if he's a good lover and least he might be able to find a wealthy wife to support him.
  2. After reading that article, I see that less as arranged marriage and more "asking your friends and family to set you up". I think of an arranged marriage more as it is shown in the show, where basically as long as Prahsant's parents approved of her and the two of them couldn't come up with a better reason than "I'm just not in love with him", that marriage was pretty much a foregone conclusion (well, at least until Kamala and Prashant were like "hey, I like you, but let's slow this thing down a little before agreeing to get married).
  3. If this were real life/tv fantasy mash-up, the end game should be "Devi and Ben realize that right now is not the right time for them. Devi dates Paxton...he's the hot "bad boy", so can have experienced that, and while he appreciates her intelligence, I think he would also just let her be a normal teenager sometimes, which someone like her needs when everyone around her is pushing. Then, in a few years, Devi and Ben reconnect at their 10 year reunion. They have their PhD/passed the bar...whatever. That's when they can go on and be a power cuouple.
  4. Yeah. That was the one big problem I had with this show. We have all these complex, complete characters and then there is the "haha, fat kid that likes food". I really hope we get to learn more about him and that there is more to him than a fat joke.
  5. Yeah, I'm sad for the family at the loss of Mitch. But, I'm sad for me personally as a viewer at the loss of Howie. I want to learn more about him!
  6. Ugh Simon. I know we are supposed to like him, but he just reminds me of so many dudes that have no idea how to be on their own and need a woman around to do all the emotional work for them. His dad died and he was with Jessica and rather than therapy or whatever, he just gets upset she doesn't 100% get what he's dealing with... Even though he isn't telling her. Then Zoey shows up, he gets to use her as an emotional dump, decides it's love and wants to jump right into a relationship with her the day after he breaks up with his fiancée. I want to see him take 3 months off from dating, work through his grief over the death of his father, loss of a bug relationship, mom's remarriage, etc. Then, maybe I won't help so ugh about the idea of him with Zoey.
  7. She was pretty great! One of the great disappointments of my life is she died when I was 16, so I never really got the chance to know her as an adult.
  8. My grandfather died young, and the funeral home wouldn't sell my grandmother the plot next to him, because they assumed she would remarry. She never did, and when she was dying several decades later it really upset her that she couldn't be buried with him. But, my mom spoke to the graveyard, and since she was being cremated, they were willing to let her be buried in the same gravesite. My mom told her mom, and my grandmother's reaction apparently was "Oh good, I always wanted to try being on top, but he would never let me". But, because of that, I definitely was surprised with the whole "we won't be together forever" thing, because urns can definitely be buried. Or you can scatter half and bury half, or whatever.
  9. I do feel bad for her in that moment. But, earlier in the eisodenwhennshes talking about having had sex with Jamie, its so sweet. And I love a vulnerable Paris; if it had knocked her down, I wouldn't like it... But instead she bounced right back from all this to continue being her.
  10. I think I'd have to add 'The Big One' to that list. I think Paris' C-SPAN breakdown is a great moment. "I'm not going to Harvard. I had sex, but I'm not going to Harvard."
  11. This shows frustrates me with annoying clichéd storylines, characters I know I'm supposed to root for but can't (I assume I'm supposed to like Max), and I wonder why I watch. But then they develop Tobin, make Howie an interesting character, and do things like the deaf student performance and I get sucked in all the same. Plus Mo dropping truth bombs in amazing clothing. And, I am glad that David and Emily are learning that they need to talk to each other, maybe something to learn before marriage and a baby. But, better late than never.
  12. I didn't know I wanted this until you mentioned it, and now there is nothing I want the show to do more, just one episode as a dream sequence Max or something. Okay, really I just want more Santino on my screen.
  13. I was excited when I thought it was going to happen. I was cheering Joan on, and then nope.... It's actually getting really frustrating because the show will look like it's setting you up for a trope subversion and instead it dives right in instead.
  14. Yeah, I keep waiting for the episode where Nicholas meets with Matilda's teacher and she goes "by the way, have you ever been tested?".
  15. Me too! I was annoyed at the end of the first episode when they hit us with the whole "best friend secretly in love with her cliche"... But tonight the secretly buff and totally charming Skylar sold me on it.
