    S04.E02: Chino and the Man

    I'm not spoiled at all, but I wonder if he's responsible for the bomb? He seems to be enjoying the bombing way too much.

    That's whose head it was??! Ack! The fake out with Dick at the beginning totally fooled me! Unfortunately I was eating spaghetti when his throat was fake-slashed. Poor timing. I laughed when I saw Keith Morrison (?) on the crime show on "USNN". Perfect. How sappy am I that I smiled when I saw Veronica eating salad, holding her fork in that weird way she has. Just like old times.

    Yes! Thank you. Now I vividly remember GM eating gallons of ice cream straight from the nozzle. It was... disturbing.

    Sorry. The quote function drives me crazy! It's impossible to get the part I want. But what comp was this? It doesn't ring a bell for me.
  5. A million years ago, I had her record. What a voice. I haven't followed her at all. Why can't she sing? Just age, or something more? What a loss for her. It reminds me of Julie Andrews losing her glorious voice after surgery. It must be like losing their sight, in terms of how they must feel.

    Wow. I thought they were just vaguely acquainted through his relative. I didn't realize they knew each other that well. Weird.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    That's a definite possibility, and I agree with you that there are people like that. I often see huge muscular guys on Survivor who are almost passing out from the lack of food while others manage okay. What's different about Jackson is that he says he used to be really heavy, which makes me think he has food issues he got under control with great effort, and the BB pressure cooker environment, with little to do but sit around and stress eat, is triggering him.

    S04.E01: Spring Break Forever

    I noticed in season one that Jason has a small head compared to so many actors. Typically, TV actors have rather large heads and smaller shoulders. It just looks better. Hence the whole "lollipop head" thing for actresses. The more muscular Jason gets, the more pronounced this is, and the more disproportionate he looks. But that's on camera. I suspect if we saw him IRL we'd think he looked amazing. (Or not. Just speculating.) I felt very sad for him when Veronica rejected his proposal. But it's not like he couldn't have seen that coming. It may be an UO but I'm very happy with the whole cuss thing. Lately, I keep turning off shows after hearing the F word 18 times in 14 sentences, used as a verb, noun adjective, adverb you name it. I find it offensive and tedious. Can someone please remind who Corny was in the original series?

    S04.E01: Spring Break Forever

    Yes! I wanted to hear the original so badly. That said, I loved this episode, particularly from about halfway through. It was like returning to a world I used to live in. Cliff was wonderful! I had a giant smile on my face for his whole segment. Hilarious! "When I don't know what to do next, I sue someone.", (Paraphrasing) I have a feeling of dread and sadness for Keith. He's falling behind, falling apart. As a Canadian I gasped at the idea that a CAT scan, free here, could cost, $2,000 for someone WITH INSURANCE! I'm not crazy about the cartel stuff and really hope it doesn't get too gruesome. I absolutely loved Kirby in the Good Place and love her here. She should be in every TV show. Excited to continue my binge.

    Oh dear. That's sad news I wasn't aware of. 😥

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    It disturbs me how many red flags Jackson is showing with his weird behaviours around food and exercise. I suspect that people would be way more sympathetic and aware of them if he were female.

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    Okay, I have to admit the reasoning here makes sense. So how do you account for his decision? (Please don't say, "Because he's a moron". 😁)

    Season 21: Live Feed Discussion

    My UO. I don't necessarily like Jackson, but I feel bad for him. He's really struggling with so many issues, on camera. I have a lot of empathy for his struggle, even though I don't agree with some (lots) of his choices. UO #2. The majority of posters seem to feel Cliff has made a major strategic error in his recent choices. Maybe he has. My take is that he did the best he could with the information available to him. He's not stupid and I don't think he's a bad player. Maybe he got fooled by skilful liars, I don't know. But it makes me sad to see everyone go from congratulating him, to calling him a moron.

    S02.E07: I Want To Know

    I guess we see everything through the prism of our own experience, but I saw it as Celeste acknowledging that despite Mary Louise's glaring faults, she was a grieving mother who really did love her grandsons, and Celeste sent her boys over to hug her, to give ML the comfort of knowing that the boys still loved her. Their doing it in front of everyone in the courtroom gave her some dignity, in the sense that she wasn't just slinking out alone and unloved. Whew. It's amazing how different viewers see different things in the same scene, depending on their own experiences. I'm sure this was true throughout this episode, which accounts for the wildly different reactions here.

    S02.E07: I Want To Know

    Yes!!! This probably is something I need to take to the TV Tropes I Hate thread, but I hate this particular trope so much, and see it all the time. Only used against male prisoners, never female. And as much as I loved this episode, Renata's violence was the one sour note for me. The cartoonish violence with the implication I was supposed to be laughing and cheering bothered me.
