    S02.E17: Breakdown

    I haven't let go of the thought that we didn't actually see Shaun melt down in Han's office. The last scene we in the office was Han telling Shaun, "If I have to call security to remove you from my office, you will be terminated". Cut scene. Next we see Shaun in the locker room, where he absolutely does melt down. I'm left with the fact that we didn't see Shaun being removed by security, and we didn't see Han actually fire Shaun. Is it at least possible that, after Han warned Shaun, Shaun left the office willingly, wasn't terminated, and was able to control himself enough to wait until he was in the locker room to have a meltdown? I'm also thinking that there's more behind Han's treatment of Shaun than we've been shown so far. I keep going back in my mind to the first time Han was working in the O.R. with Shaun. Han turned up some music, Shaun was distracted/triggered by it. Claire told Han that Shaun was having trouble with the music. Han's response was something like, "So what? I like it. Turn it up". That was, imo, a very deliberate attempt to provoke Shaun into being unable to perform surgery. Yeah, it didn't work, but why did Han do it? (This was a perfect example of someone not making a reasonable accommodation of an employee's disability. Simply, turn off the music in the O.R. when Shawn is there). Finally, and this I don't have a clear memory of: did Glassman take permanent retirement as the president of the hospital? Or was it more like an indefinite medical leave? Is there a chance Glassman could return to his former position? That would certainly rebalance the show.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I have no clue how this relates to her being a judge.

    S07.E03: Buckle Up!

    I loved Jasper's dress. His design was, imo, the best example of the spirit of an unconventional materials challenge...to turn weird things into a semblance of fabric and end up with a fashionable, artistic-looking design that could actually be seen on a runway. He was robbed! Christina's zip-up hoodie was wonderful, and she should have easily been in the Top 2. The show spent so little focus on her in the workroom that I don't even know what her unconventional materials were. But that jacket flat out looked like something found in the athleisure wear section of an upscale dept store. It was the only piece on the runway that looked like actual travel wear. The blue and green diagonal patterened dress (can't remember the designer's name) should have joined Jasper and Christina in the Top 3. Oh, Seth Aaron, you are so much better than this, darling. The only explanation that satisfies me is that you wanted to go home, so you made it impossible for the judges not to send you there. This was, for me, a good episode with horrible judging.

    Poor, beautiful Viktor. He should have been among the top 2, and if not given the GB then he should have been put through by the "super fans" (whatever the bloody hell that even is). I hope he gets a wild card spot. Now Prince Poppycock must get through next week or I will be very sad. I don't think he's an act that the "super fans" would put through, so the only way I see him making it is as a GB. So far, my favorite thing has been the truly awful Hadwin losing again, though I wouldn't put it past Simon to bring her back with a wild card so he can try even harder to shove her down our throats. Please...why??

    Yes to this. She still looks great for her age, but the woman is 79-years-old.

    They did arrest the suspect just last week. Among the burglary victims were: Usher, Jason Derulo, Adam Lambert, Dorit Lemel, and Rebecca Hutton. Link: https://www.thedailybeast.com/los-angeles-man-posed-as-realtor-to-swipe-millions-in-luxury-goods-from-stars-homes-police

    The Masked Singer

    Yes to this. "I'll take DWTS for one thousand, Alex." Of the guesses compiled from this thread, here (so far) are the ones that have appeared as contestants on DWTS: Antonio Brown Tommy Chong Gladys Knight Margaret Cho Donny Osmond Ricki Lake Lance Bass Joey Fatone

    The Masked Singer

    Here are some other theories being reported about why the Unicorn is Tori Spelling: In the voice-altered voiceover, the Unicorn says her nickname is "Bird". The word for bird in Japanese is "tori". Also in her voiceover, she says that her "childhood should have been magical". That is the same experience that is the subject of her tell-all book, titled "Stori Telling".

    I'm all in for Prince Poppycock, Tape Face, Viktor Kee, and Shin Lim. Also interested in seeing unfamiliar acts from other countries, although if that Australian dance crew was any indicator, eww.

    The Masked Singer

    Welcome back to my TV, Nick Cannon. I kept trying to see if you've started wearing socks again. I agree with others who've guessed that Peacock is Donny Osmond and Lion is Rumer Willis. If so, after seeing Antonio Brown unmasked, I'll be looking for other DWTS alumni to show up. I think Deer is Terry Bradshaw. Other than that, I'm just hoping Monster isn't CeeLo Green, as I've seen others guess elsewhere. I thought it was ridiculous when the judges kept guessing "A" list celebrities, like Lady Gaga. As if, LOL! I am kinda hoping that one of the future contestants will come out and blow it out the box with an amazing vocal. Somebody like maybe Adam Lambert, who could do a song without his too-easily-recognizable screamy rock notes. So far none of the professional singers has impressed me, and I'd enjoy it more if at least one or two of them did. I did have some confusion about the scope and limitations of the questions the judges are allowed to ask. Like, when one of them asked the contestant, "Are you a professional singer?", that seemed out of bounds. If that question is permitted, why wouldn't you ask every single contestant that question? I'd appreciate it if the show gave some clarification on how questions are asked, like, how many can they ask? Who gets to ask (do they take turns)? Are there any limitations on what questions can be asked? Also, can a judge make some kind of official guess, and if it's correct, is the contestant unmasked? So far, this show is good mindless entertainment without being obnoxious. I like that, so I'm in for now.

    That's hysterical, lol. I'm not too worried about ratings for the premier, as typically the Super Bowl lead-in show gets 25-30 million viewers. I am concerned about song selection though. I hope he chose wisely.

    So What Are You Listening To?

    @adhoc, you're probably aware of this already, but in case not: Dimash will be a contestant on CBS's new competition show, "World's Best". He will be on the premiere episode, debuting immediately after the Super Bowl on February 3rd. Can't wait to see him perform live on my TV!

    S02.E10: Quarantine

    Yes to this. Through most of S1 it was, for me, the best new show in some time. Hoping for a course-correction, I persisted as S1 fell apart. But it never returned to its original premise, in fact becoming an entirely new show that I don't particularly enjoy. I let S2 episodes stack up on the DVR and FF through much of it. I almost didn't finish this S2 mid-season finale it was so ghastly. Not sure if I'll continue watching the rest of S2. Sad.

    So What Are You Listening To?

    I can see why you would. That was tasty, thank you! I checked out their other one, Yuve Yuve Yu, as well. I may like it even a little more. I love the sound of traditional folk instruments from East Asia, as well as the Mongolian chants and throat singing. The Kazakh singer referenced above occasionally makes use of both of those too. It's a wonderful fusion, and if my ears could smile, they would. Here's an embed of Yuve Yuve Yu:
