    The Casketeers

    I recommended it to my office mate, same thing! ("no, you'll love it, its about a funeral home, everyone's wonderful, you'll laugh, you'll cry....") LOL

    Years and Years

    Stephen was participating in medical drug trials. Something about no longer being part of the EU and all the drugs being manufactured in Europe, so Britain had to start from scratch and make their own. People who participate in human subject research are usually compensated. I don't think his daughter has epilepsy. Poor Daniel. Poor Victor. When he opened the door and walked into Daniel's place I almost cried. Heartbreaking.

    Russ and Paola: You're the Only Juan for Me

    It gives people so much happiness to hold a baby. You'd have to be a horrible person indeed to deny someone that. When my son was born I was working at a grad school. I had tons of friends among the students (I was in the Registrar's/Student Services office, I knew everyone!). I was on maternity leave all spring, but I went to graduation and took him with me. I was walking around with him after lunch, saying hello to people and meeting their families. One friend was Vietnamese-American girl, who was there with her entire extended family, including her tiny, adorable grandmother. Grandma spoke no English. She whispered to my friend in Vietnamese. She turned to me and said "My grandma would like to know if she can hold your baby". I said "sure!" and handed him over. She was so happy! Its nice to hold a baby. Its nice to give an adorable grandma a chance to hold a baby. Pao is a witch.

    Pao is ridiculous. She complains when Russ works, when he doesn't, when he travels, when he doesn't. Just WAIT until the high end, designer stroller Pao wants is not forthcoming. "Don't you want our baby to have the best?" Wait until she has to do another super professional video shoot in "New Yersey"! Who will watch the baby? Russ will have to take the time off! No, they can't hire a sitter or (horrors!) ask Russ's mother to fly in for a couple of days. She is going to use that baby as a club to beat Russ with every day of her life. Remember when Russ was unemployed, and Pao slagged him off because "in Colombia, a man would do anything-anything! sell empanadas on the street!-to support his family!" Just don't get a good job in your field. It might make your spoiled lazy wife have to lift a manicured finger.

    I like Jihoon, he's cute. I laughed at his cheesy "Ocean's 11" joke. Deavan is wound up so tight and so prone to breaking down in tears that she doesn't even make an effort with him. She's just a yawning chasm of needy. He'll get sick of it good and quick. Ronald is like Ray Liotta in "Goodfellas". "What? I can't help who dances naked all over me!" Smarmy, delfecting, causing confusion, gaslighting. Tiffany is dumb as a plank.

    Bangladesh? Pakistan? Nepal? Sri Lanka? None of those choices are very salubrious.

    I agree. As a guest worker in Qatar he has no rights, no prospects, no chance at upward mobility. He must have a long game in mind. He must know that a person from the Middle East is going to have a hard time getting here in these times. Maybe he's gambling that if he's married to a citizen he'll have a better chance?

    I am prepared to bet a crisp dollar bill that Dracilla was not sick at all. Seriously, TLC? Deavan's mother flew in from SLC, collected the poor sick mite, and hauled her back to SLC? Yeah. and I am the Queen of Romania. I'm positive Deavan's mother was stashed in a hotel somewhere and picked up the feral child, as planned in advance. Maybe took her to Disneyland. Agreed. I think Corey is conning us all. He's supposedly an adrenaline junkie and has traveled the world, going to all kinds of exotic locations for adventure holidays. Now he's a whiny crybaby who can't handle shots, stray dogs, live chickens who are about to be dead chickens, insects, and rustic bathing arrangements? He must have a quirky sense of humor indeed. He and Evilyn have cooked up a couple of characters for us to enjoy. If that's the case I'm inclined to like them both for their commitment to our snarking fun. I love Jihoon's parents too, especially his dad. He has such a kind face. He and Jihoon's mother seemed to be having a dandy time in Vegas! Too bad Deavan is such a downer. Could she be any more of a wet blanket? She always looks like she's about to cry. Tifffany needs to cut her losses and go home. Ronald is a smarmy, sleazy jerk. He sounded like Ray Liotta in Goodfellas--"can I help it if she was dancing all over me? I didn't ask her to! She was just there! What could I do? The guys arranged it, I didn't know!" I see you, Ronald. You are a shifty, creepy user. I very much enjoyed the scene with the very handsome Indian lawyer and would not be upset if Sumit and Jenny had occasion to consult him again. I am gutted about missing live chat. I get up criminally early so staying awake till 9 is a challenge. If something starts at 8 I can hang, but otherwise....

    Moldova is a very poor country. Its very possible that Andrei's parents went to Romania or Russia to work and had him stay with relatives. Or if his parents are divorced (the divorce rate is high), his mother might have had him live with other family while she worked. I think its very possible that Andrei's dad wasn't part of his daily life when he was a kid. There's also a LOT of alcoholism in Moldova. The mother, or the dad, may have had a drinking problem that affected a young and impressionable Andrei. Looks like Dad's on the straight and narrow now, anyway. In any case, its nice that Andrei and his dad have a good relationship now.

    I feel like we're not supposed to know about him. All will be revealed in time. Kinicki is the linchpin. that's my guess. The daughter is the key.

    Not for nothing, but Russ speaks Spanish. He met Pao when he was living and working in Colombia. That poor baby. I agree with @seacliffsal, that is a heavy burden to put on a child. Pao is the most selfish, self centered, spoiled, shallow creature on this franchise. and considering that this franchise contains Chantel and Nicole, that's saying something.

    There isn't a hospital anywhere that will let you leave with a new baby without a properly installed carseat. And most have loaners. Why wasn't there a nurse there to help them? That's the usual policy. Hey, don't you remember the damage Nicole visited on River? Chantel is terrified of running afoul of Nicole Unleashed! hahahahahahaha Yes indeed, Pao the Poisoner told her own, highly edited, version of events. They didn't "criticize her clothes", they asked her to wear more of them. And seriously, this whole business about Russ's job is getting beyond tired. "Don't work in Oklahoma! Don't work in your field! Don't travel! Don't work long hours!" She says money's not important, but who's going to pay for her hair extensions and lip fillers if Russ is working at the local Home Goods? On the other hand, those floors won't sweep themselves. Russ could make himself useful at home while Pao holds her baby and murmurs about boobs. You're wicked. I like that in a person.

    I've been all in from the beginning, but this episode dragged for me. I'm bored stiff by Decourcy's wife, and by their domestic drama. What is up with her? One minute she's saying the preacher's accusers are lying and hysterical, the next she's a passionate advocate, she's shaking with outrage at his transgressions, she's totally woke about sexual harassment overnight. Jackie is a total bastard and I'm looking forward to his fall. I guess we're supposed to.

    The Phoenix was an alternative weekly; it won several journalism awards. They broke the news about the pedophile priests in Boston months before the Globe did. Maybe in their last days they were crap, but the Phoenix was respected for decades.
