  1. This episode was paaaaaaainful, especially the Mitch/Cam plotline. It sure was fun to watch Cam call a group of mostly POC kids "garbage" and "monsters" almost the entire time. I know the reveal at the end that the kids were actors was supposed to wipe the slate clean and I realized what was happening a little bit before the reveal, but the fact that I was like "yeah, Cam is enough of a jerk to viciously turn on a group of kids if he suspected they took one of his possessions" for so much of the plotline is...not great. Not to mention the fact that MITCH believed his own husband was genuine in
  2. lol, I forgot about the face eating sideburns!!
  3. haha, I actually like Jared's hair quite a bit. Aside from season ten at least when it looked like Sam had been attacked viciously with a flat iron every episode. That was atrocious. Now it looks much bouncier and floofy
  4. I liked this episode more than I have the previous couple. Phil and Gloria tend to be very funny and/or sweet in their subplots together, and I thought they made a very cute fake couple in the photoshoot (...and phil was also kind of cute with that rando guy before he was booted out). Sometimes I think that Gloria/Phil would make a better couple than Claire/Phil and Jay/Gloria, especially now that they've really toned done Phil's borderline creepy crush on Gloria from the first couple of seasons that got so tiresome to watch. Now that he's more normal around her and affectionate in a way that
  5. To be honest, I just can't relate to the fact that the show seems to be making a big deal over Hailey being young and pregnant. She's like 25! I realize that being in your mid twenties doesn't mean you're automatically financially and emotionally capable of raising a child but she's not fresh out of high school and knocked up. But then again, most women in my family started popping out kids by the time they were 23 or 24 at the latest so that probably colors my perception. And I know that Hailey is too stupid to know how to save money but she does have a stable job (that she just got a promoti
  6. He looks amazing!! He's such a handsome man, and he looked adorable with those cats. He's been relatively active lately; I know he was on some show called Chesapeake Shores (which I don't watch) last year for a string of eps and I remember seeing him in Rizzoli & Isles a couple of years ago, although he looked much better in American Housewife. It's the beard, man. He wears it well.
  7. Once again, I think they made very good usage of Franklin in this ep and his line about having FOMO cracked me up (as did Anna Kat's face when he showed her his chickenpox). I don't often like Kathryn as a character, but I thought her plotline with Oliver and Taylor was actually pretty funny. I loved the scene where she shoved Taylor into the bushes and she just bounced back up very nonchalantly while looking at her phone. Kathryn's mini-breakdown over realizing that she had been broken up with ("my only rebound was a crow I befriended by feeding him berries through the window!") also ma
  8. I jump around a bit when listening to the podcast, so I heard a few references in future eps (in the successful Mr. Show and failed Kids in the Hall submissions I think) to the time that Joe submitted an SNL ep to the canon and promptly talked himself out of it, so I was so excited when I actually got to the ep and it didn't disappoint! I also remember hearing a reference or two to a GI Joe centric episode that people apparently complained about, but I got to it yesterday and thought it was super funny. Cold Slither, jesus christ.
  9. lol, I actually just listened to that one earlier this afternoon!! I had to pause it at a couple of points to regain my composure because I was at work. The way that Joe eventually began to criticize the episode more than anyone else while Dave and Tara periodically yelled "what are you doing???" as he continued to sabotage himself and the way he defended himself by saying"this is an experimental canon submission!"was so funny. I almost lost it when he was finally like "I'm not voting for this." I also totally didn't realize that Joe was the one who originally came up with the "Will
  10. lmao, Claudia. I understand desperation, but no one should be that willing to sentence themselves to marriage with David. Nothing is worth that! Also, when I was scrolling through the visual aids, I thought Pia was Shannen Doherty for a split second. There was less resemblance when I actually got a good look at her, but it would have been pretty funny if they brought Doherty back in a one episode guest spot late in the show, cast her in a totally different role, and never said anything about it.
  11. I forgot about the water scene! It was pretty funny, you're right. Chandler looked so excited (and adorable in his little sweater vest thingy)
  12. I really hated the plotline in The One with the Birth Mother where Erica mixes up Chandler and Monica's file with another couple's and Chandler (like a sane, reasonable person) wants to point out Erica's mistake while Monica decides to go along with the charade and pretend that she and Chandler are both doctors or whatever the other couple's professions were supposed to be. Aside from the fact that the ruse would have absolutely been discovered eventually even if Chandler hadn't convinced Monica to come clean, the whole thing made Monica look like a borderline psychopath. I know we were suppos
  13. That's my main issue with the Nick/Lucifer plotline as well. I think it's something that could be done in an interesting way but, as you said, it's already a shortened season as it is. I thought it was bad enough spending so much time on Lucifer during season 12 when all the BMOL stuff was going on,especially since the plotlines rarely seemed to intersect in a way that was actually meaningful. I mean, I think the BMOL provided that egg thing in LOTUS or whatever but for the most part, it felt like the Lucifer plotline was from a totally different season. In fact, I very often forget that it wa
  14. I didn't care much for the epilogue but I agree with this. It happened over ten years ago, it's time to stop acting like JK Rowling murdered your childhood. I mean, she pretty much had to write some sort of epilogue and I don't think anything she could have come up with would have satisfied most people. It was just a tall order.
  15. This is my feeling as well. I understand why some people had a knee jerk reaction to Jack saying that and I totally get why some people might not enjoy his character, but considering that Jack actually was tortured by Michael in the last season and was in the AU world long enough to become very well acquainted with how badly Michael ravaged it and its people, I can understand why he would claim to want to kill Michael and stop him from destroying their own world as well, even if it was at the cost of Dean. We see later that this was probably just said in a moment of anger without the actual wi
  16. this definitely cracked me up! especially since it comes from this clip of the movie Cable Guy (so that's Jim Carrey's tit squashed against the window): Stephen Amell and Jared have such a cute and goofy friendship. Always love it when they rag on each other
  17. I know this is a super old post and I doubt you even check it anymore, but thank you so much for making the original podcast available, Dougal. I've been having such a great time listening to it over the past week, and it's really nice to finally be able to listen to The Canon submissions that I could see listed on The Canon page but couldn't actually access. After listening to the current EHG podcast for so long, it's still a little weird to listen to Mark I and not hear Sarah on it regularly (sometimes I'll be like "huh, Sarah is being really quiet-- oh wait") but I absolutely love being abl
  18. I still really enjoy watching the show, but on my most recent rewatch, a lot of things about it bothered me that I previously didn't notice about it. To bash Ross, a lot of people will use Joey as an example of a much better and ideal male character, but I think they forget that, especially in the first several seasons of the show, there were a lot of "jokes" (often very brief ones so it's not like it was a huge narrative focus) about Joey getting excited by the prospect of drunk or emotionally vulnerable women because they were an easy lay and there were several occasions where he had
  19. I'm super jazzed about the upcoming book about 90210 and am looking forward to pre-ordering it. Very excited to see what kinds of listicles and additional content will be included. It was also really nice to see Kim on the podcast again and I'm glad that Little House on the Podcast will be picked up again. I also really enjoyed the conversation about what characters everyone would take on a lifeboat with them and lol'd when Dave asked Kim what exactly Sookie would be cooking on the lifeboat. I do concur with Kim's choices though-- Sookie, Ma Ingalls, Ron, Leslie, and Watson seems
  20. DA2 wasn't my overall favorite game (mostly due to the fact that, as admitted by the creators, the game was extremely rushed in some parts and it shows), but I definitely agree that Hawke is my favorite protagonist and you make a good point by saying that it's partly due to the fact that Hawke isn't the Chosen One. They felt a lot more grounded and fleshed out than the other DA protags and I really liked that the game had such a strong focus on their family life. I also loved that there are some major consequences in the game that are just inevitable-- at least one of Hawke's siblings has to d
  21. So happy to see Kevin Rahm pop up in this ep. I've loved him ever since he was on Judging Amy And the clip of Bobbi scooping ice into her wine is A+
  22. Yes, he couldn't get over the fact that she dared to appear in Playboy before being on the show. iirc, several producers on the show quit soon after because the unbearable Kirk Cameron called the then-president of ABC and accused them of being porn peddlers. He's such a tool.
  23. Not sure how unpopular this is, but I saw a lot of backlash to it in fandom while it was happening: I actually really enjoyed Laurel's character in Arrow and enjoyed her arc throughout the first two seasons, even the addiction storyline, which I thought made a lot of sense for her character consider how much shit she went through (kidnapping, still not coping with her sister's "death," threats against her life, watching her boyfriend die, etc) and I also think Katie Cassidy sold it pretty well. Laurel's relationship with her father, Quentin, was also one of my absolute favorite parts of the sh
  24. I found most of the episode pretty dull. The PC storyline with Jay and Cam felt like the kind of parody you would see in South Park (and have seen in South Park! The Principal in this ep was basically PC Principal from South Park aside from the fact that the end of the ep proved that he didn't actually believe in what he was espousing while PC Principal fanatically does), the Alex/Gloria/Claire parts were joyless, and I couldn't care less about Haley being pregnant. BUT I loved the Phil and Mitch subplot. We've seen their nerdy friendship showcased a little bit in previous seasons (
