  1. I wonder if Greg will be a guest? I was planning to visit Portland and see my sister and was going to track him down ha ha
  2. We in reality there are some very attractive men that have "real" jobs, so I don't see the problem. But on the other hand the female costars are always insanely pretty and running around in shorts....that is also so realisitc....right
  3. Sure, I don't know why the DI could not be a woman but I wo. uld settle for some eye candy.....can they please cast an attractive "fish out of water" man? you can be eccentric and different and be attractive.
  4. I liked the first group. I miss Fidel, Camille, and Poole was the best. Since I am in the U.S. and don't have whatever service they release to first, I am waiting for the last season as well as the last season of Vera.
  5. He could have been written off without being killed....disappeared, just went back to London. I've always thought it was unnecessary to kill him even if the actor requested that ending.
  6. I also wondered about the Wedding Planner movies. They were certainly no worse than any of the others.....Murder she Baked, Garage Sale, etc.
  7. I am curious....does anyone see Candice leaving the Flash, assuming it is picked up for another year? I have always felt that there is an underlying issue or something that is not being spoken about that is evident in their performances.
  8. This! I love everything that you said about Lupe.....I found the whole thing rather boring and stereotypical. Someone here compared it to L.A. Confidential.....uh, no!
  9. It is just an ok from me so far....I still don't think this is a great origin story for Perry and this could have been any show with a different name. No need to tie it to the series just because the author never gave a back story.
  10. I can't really say I like or dislike either of them, but respect them as competitors. I have never understood all the negative comments about Michael here and have defended him a couple of times just because......I mean he may not be everyone's cup of tea but he is clearly talented and I don't read so much into these snippets of people that we are given by a edited reality show. And I'll say it again, if he is on drugs or once was, let's just hope that he is getting some help. Clearly his brother loves him, so there is that.... No matter how talented you are owning a successful restaurant is hard, especially in certain markets Some people like to cook but do not want everything else that goes with it. Also, being a restaurant owner is not for everyone. Hopefully he can find a niche for his love of food .
  11. I liked it too but there were two loose ends.
  12. I thought they said he had deleted his twitter, so I assumed these were screen shot someone had? Or did he still have the page and was just not active and someone went back to read all his tweets?
  13. I don't play "games" and if the show wanted to show change and do color blind casting, then why make the Hispanic family with criminal ties? It is not that they can't play villians, it is that they USUALLY play villains, (black and hispanic characters so) that is nothing NEW. So let's make them Hispanic and powerful, BUT that power should be corrupt. See that's the problem, minorities are USUALLY portrayed as criminals, and there is always a BUT, why not do something different? So why couldn't ARCHIE's family be the one with criminal ties? They changed everything else. But they made Jughead's father the sheriff and he was a criminal? And Archie and Jughead are the "good" guys, including Betty, but Reggie and Chuck are problematic. Even "dark Betty," was standing up for other people. Honestly, this week I have no patience. If you choose to watch this show and not see the issue with the writing ...for ALL characters including Betty, Archie and Jughead, o.k. You have your opinion and I have mine. They did a horrible job with casting and writing. This was pushed as an ensemble show which is why it is called Riverdale, but quickly deviated from that concept. In fact ,they should have just had the show without the ties to the Archie comics.
  14. So the writers have apologized to Vanessa Morgan....what about A. Murray, Hayley Law, the guy that plays Reggie? How Pop is portrayed? The fact that the Lodges are criminals...and Hispanic, but Jughead's father can be a criminal...then be Sheriff? There are so many stereotypes and slights in this show that he doesn't have time to apologize to everybody...
  15. So glad that she and others spoke out on the very reason I stopped watching....the diversity signal of casting Reggie as Asian....and a character who is part of the core four in the comics being regaled to the sideline....then ticking the box twice by casting a biracial and having a bisexual storyline.....the way they discarded the Pussycats and used Val and Josie in the Archie mess...That along with the poor writing and preposterous storylines...even some of the main cast got tired and left this year. Then she is paid less? Now they are doing the same type of thing on Nancy Drew. They borrow the name of something well known and "artistically" change it to some drivel all the while making diversity casting not because they believe in the actors/actresses but because they are trying to tick a box and be called "diverse." Then they ignore them in photo and press ops and calls - except a few- and don't give them storylines. I could have predicted when NIck was black and George was Asian where that was going.....and that Nancy would be with someone else...same with Supergirl....
