  1. You know what, I liked it. If they were going to do any episode this way, Beard is the only one they could do it with. I went between wondering if it was a dream, a trip, or real. And I guess it came down through his night through his broken down and intoxicated lens. Yes, it was bizarre and different, but Beard is a little bizarre and different. It was mostly contained. I don't know. I don't need or want a lot of episodes like this but I can give them one. You can always give them one. Look at all the shows that have randomly done musicals over the years. IMO only Buffy got it r
  2. I don't think the Jamie confession has anything to do with Jamie other than his character growth. We have seen the redemption arc all season, we have seen him turn to Keeley before, after they broke up, and if memory serves we have seen him express happiness for her that she has Roy. I think that he simply needed to say it - death and funerals have a way of making you want to be better, be open, more humane, and when you combine that with his own moments with and about his father, that is what got him there. Oh that moment on the therapists couch where you have had such a breakthrough
  3. I can add myself to the list who can draw comparisons to 22 year old Monica and things they did in their 20s and cringe (at the very least). It stems from a severe lack of self-esteem, a "history" of unreciprocated relationships - the kind where he throws the bone, gets what he enjoys, and you develop feelings qnd desperately want him to feel the same so you keep coming back for more - loneliness, and other issues that will eventually get worked out in therapy. So when somebody comes along who gives you even a glimpse of feeling worthwhile, attractive, sexy, intelligent, it knocks your world
  4. https://www.google.com/amp/s/nypost.com/2021/09/17/melissa-and-joe-gorga-list-3-homes-downgrade-to-900k-nj-pad/amp/ Is the money catching up with the Gorgas?
  5. Hey! My 12 year old wore nearly that exact outfit for Halloween a couple of years ago. PIcture from halloweencostumes.com where you can order a Kim's outfit for a mere $39.99
  6. Remember this Kim and Kanye? They got so heavy and dragged down and dark. Now even literally. We have a blacked out kim with capes deagging on the ground.
  7. I don't know, maybe I'm not "fashionable" enough but I find the Met Gala to be a giant bore when it comes to fashion - and I'm not sure why. I love the glamour that comes with the Oscars, but the Met always leaves me feeling uninspired or rolling my eyes or bored. How many times can somebody dress 80% naked on the red carpet and be considered daring? How many times can we see some dominatrix look on the red carpet and claim that it's bold and fashion forward? There is this article in vogue saying that this year Kim kept people guessing, it was inventive and new. People didn't know who it
  8. 🤣🤣🤣 Oh, Kimmy. Why do you let Kanye do this shit to you?
  9. I am just a few years younger than Monica Lewinsky and find myself more sympathetic to her now than I was back then.. She was 22 at the time - her frontal cortex hadn't even finished developing at the time. That lovely part of the brain that is involved with "motor function, problem solving, spontaneity, memory, language, initiation, judgement, impulse control, and social and sexual behavior." But I also now find myself more interested in all of the different players around the impeachment of Bill Clinton than I was back then. I love Washington politics in TV drama so I enjoyed this episo
  10. Jonathan has always reminded me of the desperate high school kid. The one who wanted so badly to be part of the popular group that he just inserted himself and tagged along even though they didn't treat him well. That kid was desperate, insecure, cared way too much, fake, and while he tried so hard to be "cool," he made himself into a douchebag. Jonathan is that kid. I so so so want Kim to be all "you can't sit with us" one day and film it for E.
  11. LOL I remember that. Shannon vs. Kim. Then there was little Dominique just happily flipping all over the place with a big ass smile on her face. I also remember when suddenly everybody had to dress and do their hair like Shannon. I'm not sure how that happened, because the Karolyis were certainly still on the scene. It was when Kerri Strugg was coming on up and after Kim had retired, so the time between 92 and 96 I guess? I read some click bait article today about some Olympic gold medalist (I think a Russian wrestler?) saying that Simone needed some tough love or some such t
  12. I personally am loving that we are seeing a variety of countries on the medal podium - USA, ROC, Brazil, Belgium, Great Britain, now China. How fantastic for this sport during this games. I know Simone was "supposed" to sweep it all, but if she had, in the GOAT way, we most likely wouldn't have Rebecca winning the first medal ever for Brazil and the first gold for an event final. Jade wouldn't have had her gold on bars. We we wouldn't be celebrating the first asian american to win individual gold. There's bright and shiny gold/silver/bronze lining here. That said I am THRILLED for
  13. I think they also need to consider the 4 gymnast rule and how they score. And somebody please correct me if I'm wrong in my understanding of either: I've long said that the scoring is messed up - somebody as good as Simone can basically fall and still win gold because the degree of difficulty is so high. And as good as somebody like Simone may be, I've never agreed with that because it just seemed odd. If I fall in competition, how am I on top of the medal podium next to somebody who is flawless, but had one less half twist or whatever? But there's another side to that. If people are
  14. AA selection is only based on performance in the qualifying round. I remember this being a big point of discussion when Aly beat Jordan, everybody kept hammering home that unless Aly or Gabby dropped out or were pulled for "injury", there was no way to get Jordan in there even though she placed easily in the top 8 because of the 2 gymnast rule. The team final doesn't impact who goes to AA at all.
  15. My least favorite is the weird side ariel with bent legs on the beam (I don't know the official name). We hear all about clean lines, straight legs, pointed toes, yet somehow we have this clunky thing that looks like a mistake. Speaking of the beam, the Russian who fell, her mount and leap series was beautiful.
  16. I have never understood wolf turns. Are the arms supposed to do something specific? I feel like everybody waves their arms around differently.
  17. But that's not what they did, at least not IMO. The switch is really clear - they lead up to her vault, without real explanation but instead false "prediction," then switch back to the original commentary where you can tell that they are somewhat stunned and confused by what was going on. Yes, they can draw on past examples of the mental game and pressure gone wrong in the olympic games and draw conclusions about what happened, but they were quite finite in their mental game analysis, the "lost in the air" statements, the Simone blooper reel, the warmup predictions, etc. Then they switch to
  18. Will we see anybody other than the Americans and ROC? I don't get how NBC is so short sighted when planning their coverage. And they wonder why viewership is down. This is the Olympics. Every 4 years, the greatest athletes in the world. Let us see them. It is part of the fun and the culture and purpose of the games. I love gymnastics. I will cheer on team USA every day. And I want to see other countries. I assume I am not alone in that.
  19. They re-recorded. I'm convinced. And they switched to their original commentary just a minute ago where they are expressing confusion over rules, will she stay on the floor, etc.
  20. Wtf NBC? Did they go back and re-record the commentary? That montage of her recent slips, Tim and his "lost in tbe air" comment. It is like in their effort to "explain," they are rooting for her to fail. She looks devastated.
  21. This show lacks everything that the OG had. The original show, especially season 1, was bright. It had energy, fun, frivolity and dare I say it, charm. This is just drab, unlikeable, and lacks any spirit whatsoever. In other words, they are trying WAY too hard to be...well, I don't actually know what they are trying to be.
  22. "You will miss her" - is she leaving the show? Teresa would never tolerate sexual harassment in the workpalce but she tolerated Joe Giudice calling her a c*nt on national television, telling her he never wanted to marry her and got rid of her on national television, telling her to shut up more times than I can count. But nobody would dare to harrass her because she wouldn't tolerate it. Oooookkkaaayyy. Luis is skeevy and slimy looking. That said, so is Tre a lot of the time. So they do match in that regard. Tre said on the reunion that he had watched every episode. Of course he k
  23. I'd like to know how they found a wall in the woods on such short notice.
  24. Once again, somebody gave the writers room a copy of Daughter's of Eve. I think they had a similar revenge scene in the woods, although not ending in death because it was a tween/teen novel afterall. I get why the went the route they did in terms of the revenge killing of Fred, but I kind of rolled my eyes a bit. I actually thought, when June and Fred were having a drink, that she was going to slip him some of the poison that she used earlier in the season - dump it into the whole bottle to kill him the next time he goes to have a drink. I was ridiculously tense during that scene. I
  25. I'm not sure Nick necessarily wants to defect. As others have said, he's essentially a war criminal. However, pre-Gilead Nick was "a loser." Couldn't keep a job, wasn't respected, short tempered, a nobody. Gilead Nick IS somebody. He is respected, trusted, and whether it is warranted or not, he has power -- even if he doesn't agree with certain aspects of Gilead (and people can justify a lot in their minds when they need to), I'm not convinced he thinks going back to "freedom" is better. I had forgotten all about that. The show writers probably did as well. But this is an
