  1. It could just be that Lea is simply not attracted to him, whether it's autism related or his appearance or whatever. That should be enough of a reason. Why should she try to make it work if she just doesn't want to - even if the reasons seem thin?
  2. Easily my favorite part of the entire series. I loved that so hard. Someone at some point admitted that the AI plans were "stolen"... I don't remember if it was Emily who admitted that or the guy she was working with who Helen ultimately killed. Who/When/Where it was stolen from is anyone's guess. But they started with the source code and Emily hacked it up to make a child and somewhere along the way gave Piper additional abilities. When Helen was regenerating out of dust, I desperately wanted Jo to be waiting for her with the needle in her hand so the moment her neck appeared, she'd stab it right in there. Oh well.
  3. Why aren't there a bunch of comments here? I feel the need to discuss this show but without other comments, I'm not sure where to start... The original trailer apple showed made this series seem EPIC - the scenery, the battle scenes, the Momoa. Then I read some lackluster reviews and I was prepared for disappointment. Honestly, though, I wasn't disappointed at all. The filming WAS epic. The fight scenes WERE awesome. The plot was interesting and the characters were better formed than I expected. I was totally immersed and binged the whole series in a couple of days. Even as much of the world didn't make complete sense, I believed these characters. I believed their society. I saw the princess-reveal from early on and knew what we'd find in her secret satchel before it was opened, but it still worked for me. I loved the Voss/Jerlameral showdown. I loved to hate the queen. The only thing that didn't make any sense to me other than 'plot' - was Boots' betrayal. If the Queen died, the princess he was already sworn to would've become queen. And she is certainly more trustworthy than the Queen he switched allegiances to. That didn't make any sense. But, otherwise, truly enjoyed and hope to see another season. I look forward to the reunification of the family and, potentially, the discovery of more sighted people.
  4. Maybe I've been watching too much TV, but I fully expected Hannah to fall to her death, smashing into the top of a car as Bradley left her apartment building. I suppose my guess was close enough and what happened was certainly more in line with her character than a dramatic fall so I'm good with it. I, too, loved Alex throwing water in producer-guy's face. I think that may have been my favorite part of the entire series. I enjoyed the whole thing. I thought it was very smart, very well written - yes, a little slow at times, but overall, really good writing and acting. I hope there's more to come.
  5. There's way too much going on. Not much makes sense. And it's hard to understand which makes all of the emotional impact we're supposed to feel fall completely flat. I'm too busy being overwhelmed and confused to really process anything that's happening. Which is disappointing. I really wanted to enjoy this.
  6. I adore the character of Cory. He's my favorite. I'm always happy when he's on screen and I'm loving the chemistry between him and Bradley. And him and Alex. And him and Fred. Hee! So much fun. So entertaining. Especially after the slower, emotionally draining bits.
  7. I loved all the 80s throwbacks. Enjoyed the music (especially the 80s throwback music). Eli was a fun and interesting character. I enjoyed the Wesley & Turbo relationship. I loved meeting Turbo's dad. Matthew Broderick killed; loved the irony that he went from the coolest highschooler ever to the straight-laced, "rule-following" principal. Angelica wins at everything but I can't help but think of her as the little girl in the movie Blended. All of the supporting characters were great, but... Josh was kind of boring. I guess that's why no one knew who he was. He wasn't tennis Josh, little Josh with the big truck, gay Josh OR other gay Josh... (another running gag that never failed to make me chuckle). But seriously, I would've preferred someone with a little more something. Overall, it was an interesting and enjoyable ride.
  8. Just happy to have a couple of wins in a row. Goodbye Vera. Goodbye Janice. Totally shipping Darlene & Dom. ❤️
  9. "I'm here." Kind of the theme of the episode.
  10. A) I'm sad this show is probably canceled. B) I'm surprised everyone was shocked by the Emily reveal. We were hit over the head a dozen times that Kindred wasn't a tech-guy - that he's too dumb. And when partner-guy said he destroyed it and/or didn't complete it... the only person that's left is Emily. I kind of thought it was a giveaway and the reveal at the end was just confirmation. C) I love Chris. D) I'm waiting for Piper to cure Grandpa somehow. The end.
  11. When the kid was looking at his parents for the last time, it broke me. Full on sobbing and blubbering. He really stared at their faces - didn't even blink. Like he was just memorizing everything he could. Tearing up now just thinking about it. It was a nice bit of relief when Reznick flashed him and he was wheeled out smiling. All the feels. I hate Debbie. HATE WITH THE FIERY PASSION OF A THOUSAND SUNS. DESPISE. LOATHE. ABHOR. That is all.
  12. I didn't understand anything about this episode. This seemed like a complete waste of time. Nothing has moved forward at all.
  13. I appreciate yours & bros402's comments and apologize for my ignorance. It's awesome that you're willing to share your perspective. I have a followup question if you don't mind answering. When an able person finds someone with an obvious disability or deformity attractive, does it feel fetish-y? Would it bother you if it did? I mean, I guess big boobs are something men typically find attractive and if a guy found me attractive because I have big boobs, I wouldn't care. But wouldn't it be inappropriate if a person found someone attractive because of their disability? Sometimes it feels like Carly likes Shaun specifically because he's different. At what point is that not okay?
  14. I felt icky with the Carly/Shaun scene. I know this relationship eventually has to have a sexual aspect, but Shaun is portrayed as childlike and innocent and it just felt wrong, to me. This is definitely a biased and stereotypical opinion and I apologize for any potential offense, but I'd rather Shaun begin a sexual relationship with someone on the same experience and maturity level as he is. In my mind, that means another person on the spectrum or potentially someone with a social anxiety disorder that puts them on the same footing. This relationship creates an unequal power dynamic and it doesn't feel entirely moral.

    What I found really great about this episode was the takeaway that if Elliot would have gone through with his plan to blackmail her (losing custody because she's been doing drugs)...he would have failed. Because she's wasn't. She kept the pill bottle as a reminder. So it's a really good thing Mr. Robot stepped in and pursued the more 'humane' way of getting the code. Maybe a lesson there?
