    So, currently - Christie, Jess, Kat, Sis, Holly, Jack and Jackson are all voting to keep Nicole (7 votes), while Sam, Bella, and Tommy are voting to keep Cliff (3 votes)? Does Nick even realize the vote has flipped yet?

    Just caught up on last night's episode. A few thoughts... The way Beth looked at the mirror when she was ripping out the "book club" books, and the way Turner did not seem to search behind that mirror make me think she hid the empty binder there rather than under the ceiling tiles. It hadn't occurred to me until I came here that Ruby must have played Annie but that makes the most sense since there's no way she can come up with the money to pay for a decent lawyers otherwise. As far as Annie and Noah are concerned... Yes, she totally blabbed and it didn't even occur to her until Beth wondered how the FBI knew to raid the dealership and exactly what they were looking for, just how much she had really screwed up. It was clear, when she went to work the next morning that she's put it together enough to strongly suspect Noah is, at minimum, an FBI informant.

    Or maybe her parents have parental controls on the WiFi and the youngster can't just get on the internet whenever she wants. My brother set up parental controls over his kids' internet access several years ago when they were still in elementary school and their first couple years of middle school but they still had laptops of their own to work on their school reports, etc.

    That's what I was expecting until Beth put the sign back up in the middle of the night. I'm not sure where they're going with Leslie now but I am still hoping for death at that intersection.

    Season 15 Discussion

    Well, just because Danielle B. sang "Heads Carolina" doesn't mean that Kelly wouldn't let Chevel sing it too, but there's plenty of other songs by JoDee Messina that are great (and upbeat) like "I'm Alright" or "Bye-Bye." I agree, though, that having Chevel take on country tunes from the '60s and '70s isn't a pathway to victory. As it is, with the current state of country music, and specifically the lack of real staying power from any females currently charting (aside from Carrie Underwood and any groups with female leads ie Lady A etc), anything from the last 20 years is likely to sound familiar to today's country music listeners - I've heard two-decades old Shania Twain on the radio recently, lol - and that's a good thing.

    I agree that Chevel has a better voice than Taylor Swift but her style isn't really all that similar to early Taylor's country offerings. I want to say that the week she sang "Travelin' Soldier," it occurred to me that she has a lot of the same twang and yodeling capabilities that Natalie Maines and LeAnn Rimes have, so I was pleased to hear her try "Blue" this week. The other artist I thought she had a similarity to is, and this is throwing it WAY back to the early '00s somewhat obscure female country artists, is Sherrie Austin. I'd have loved to hear Chevel try something along the lines of "Little Bird," "Followin' A Feelin'," or "Never Been Kissed." If not a somewhat obscure singer like Austin then possibly something out of the catalogues of JoDee Messina or Mindy McCready - she could probably do well with "Heads Carolina, Tails California" or "Guys Do It All the Time." I seriously doubt we'll get anything along those lines from Chevel come Monday. Knowing that Kelly has already gone to the well of Loretta Lynn, I'm guessing we're going to be regaled with something out of the Tanya Tucker or Dolly Parton catalogue for Chevel.

    The Alias Reboot: If Not Now, When(nifer)?

    I think I'd prefer a sequel rather than a prequel. We already know how it ends up, so unless, as others have said, a prequel could come up actors on par with Garber, Rifkin, Olin (frankly, the whole cast with few exceptions), it wouldn't be anywhere near as satisfying as the original. A sequel at least moves forward, with new, unknown stories to be told. It doesn't even have to be with Syd & Vaughn's kids - maybe it's Mitchell (Marshall & Carrie's kid) or one of Dixon's kids or Will's kid (assuming he has at least one kid with the lady he married in Wisconsin). It's been so many years that someone like Rachel could be pretty high up in the CIA hierarchy.

    The Alias Reboot: If Not Now, When(nifer)?

    Yeah, no, having recently re-watched, for the first time since it aired, the series finale, I'm not convinced Jack is dead. After all, if Sloane could fall into the Rambaldi Juice of Eternal Rejuvenation down in that cave, there's no reason to think that Jack didn't do the same once he blew up the entrance to said cave. Someone's got to keep an eye on Sloane for the rest of time. Therefore, Jack would be alive in any reboot.

    S11.E01: Fake News

    I'm clearly in the minority here but I thought the HRC cameo was flat. As flat as most of her campaigning in both 2008 and 2016. In fact, that scene and the opening scene were the only ones that fell flat for me. Love the dynamic between Murphy and Avery (and I love Jake McDorman, also *sniff* Limitless). I think the reboot has potential but I really hope it chooses to be more a scathing yet funny commentary on the sad state of American journalism and the entire political establishment than just taking potshots at Trump/GOP. I snickered at the Twitter warning Avery gave Murphy about shows being cancelled for less than Murphy's inaugural tweet and took that as a direct Roseanne reference (another reboot that I liked because I thought there was a balance of ideas and willingness to engage in thoughtful dialogue). And, I agree, the hot flashes gag wore thin by the end of the episode - could have done without the last "joke" for sure. All in all, not a terrible and I'll give it a chance.

    Season 20: Live Feed Discussion

    Definitely not. One of my co-workers and I discovered, mid-way through the season, that we both watch BB so we chatted earlier today about who we thought would win and the one thing we both agreed on was that we couldn't wait to see JC's smug face fall when neither Kaycee nor Tyler took him to the F2. And another friend commented on FB last week that he looked like a lizard. So, yeah, I'm not sure what world they're living in but it ain't mine, lol. Alas, so sad that 1) we didn't make it to 500 pages this summer, and 2) BB is over for another year. I love following along in this thread and reading everyone's witty, snarky, on-point observations! Until next year!

    LMAO - DELUSIONAL to the end! The only reason he thinks he didn't make it to F2 was because he didn't win comps. Yeah, that's why. It wasn't because of Kaycee & Tyler's Day 1 Final 2 deal at all. And he says he would have taken Tyler to F2 had he won the last HOH.

    Still no JC - we're getting Josh instead. I am amused that they gave Ross a JC waver, lol.

    They will. Bay's Daddy will make sure of that if she's pregnant and she all but confirmed that she is.

    Tyler is up. So, they're going to end with the annoying JC. Ugh.
