  1. The music (score?) in this episode was so dramatic, intense and haunting, it seriously reminded me of a Christopher Nolan film. I felt like I was watching Tenet. The music in the scene where she sneaks in James Hewitt was my favorite. The quality of production for this show is amazing.
  2. I thought Noel and Matt were insufferable this season and actually preferred to watch on my phone, so I could do the 10-second jump ahead when they were on. However, with that being said Sue made a key party joke as well.
  3. They couldn't just ask. Even asking the question would expose them as bumpkins. The decided to roll the dice and guess at which attire they should wear, with a 50% chance they could be right and not be exposed as bumpkins. Turns out they guessed incorrectly. So in that case I saw them taking a calculated risk. 100% chance of being exposed as bumpkins by outright asking what to wear, versus 50% chance with guessing. Sometimes people want to minimize their risk of being exposed. Some people aren't comfortable with actively showing that they're bumpkins, inept, unsure of the answer, etc.
  4. That's exactly the attitude that's off-putting - that southerners don't appreciate gourmet, chef-made food and just want practical food at a good price. It's condescending. As if people from the south are too dumb. She and Ben literally said that employees who left didn't know what a good opportunity it was to work for them. That is a clear "yokels don't understand us" example.
  5. I think A Chef’s Life caught her at a really hard time in her life. She was so worn down, running the restaurant, raising young twins, kind of a jerk husband, the cookbook and moving to NC. I’ll cut her slack on that. But I’m rewatching it and I’m really turned off with her constant complaining and “these yokels don’t understand what a big deal we are.” I’m sure that they were in a much better position in NYC, bringing elevated southern food to the city. The concept doesn’t play as well when you’re in the actual south. She seemed bitter that she had to move, and resentful. That’s how generational wealth works though. But I’m sure she’s over it now and I look forward to the new series, I just have to get pbs passport.
  6. Also John Ritter's son Jason Ritter was in Season 1 as an FBI agent.
  7. I was watching the holiday special that had Benjamina, Rav, the guy who dropped his cake in Season 1(?) and the older lady named Sandy. The signature was to make six individual ice cream meringue desserts. They were running out of time and they kept running their desserts one by one to the freezers. There was a counter/table next to one of the fridges and I kept thinking it would have been better if they could prepare at a counter and then just pop them in right there. But they probably can't turn their backs on the cameras for too long. It just seemed like a really bad design to have them make ice cream and then have the freezers so far away. Only Sandy's firmed up enough.
  8. This could just be me, but I didn't see Paul cut into Alice's pork pie cake. I watched the judging twice and didn't see it. They could have left out some of the dramatic crying and included the cake. I really wanted to see that because it looked amazing.
  9. Also I think it should be "every day" with a space between every and day.
  10. I'm loving that Jeremy's picture is being posted every couple of pages 😀
  11. I knew Henry wouldn't win it all so he had to leave sometime, but he was my favorite so I'll miss him a lot. In past seasons the bakers were shown having a deep love of baking in their personal lives - baking in their college dorms, baking from a very young age, etc. This year I haven't really seen that being shown. And I've noticed they complain a lot about what they have to do. I remember Ruby saying once something like no one looks forward to the technical and I thought then it was pretty bold statement. But this year all the contestants are saying things like that constantly.
  12. It looks like Bravo has released the official cast. Link to ETOnline here. Bravo here I've lived in the DFW metroplex since 1991 and now in a suburb of Dallas. I was mostly curious to see if Rhonda Aiken (Troy's ex) would be on, which was a rumor. Good thing she's got more class than that. I'm sad. I love this area and they're going to make it look so trashy. I was hoping RH would avoid Dallas. Although I was really amused this morning while driving to work I was listening to the radio and they played this really big "BREAKING NEWS!" audio. Then the host said "The Real Housewives of Dallas cast has been announced." I got a good laugh out of that.
  13. This is one of my all time favorites, too. Robert Goulet says "wow, that is some hair" when Carrie walked away, and when she comes back says "were you just talking about my hair?" and Rober Goulet said "he said you look like Pete Rose." LOL Earlier in the ep Carrie tells Deacon and Kelly that she got carded at the store and then Doug says quietly "because she looks like a weird boy." OMG died laughing that entire episode.
