    S14.E09: Field Ready

    This is Texas though! Religion and football are kings in that state. Unless you're familiar with the South, you might think it's odd or unnecessary, but I assure you it's totally normal in those parts.
  2. When Shannen came aboard, nothing had been done yet though. They didn't have a pilot. They hadn't filmed a scene. In fact they fired their writers after she came on board. It isn't like they filmed half of it and then she came on board. In episode 2 I believe it was, we waited until after the final commercial break to even see her. That's why I said she was marginalized. We also got to see everyone else's real life but not hers. I am a big fan of hers so I was very disappointed in how they chose to use her. And yes she was a producer, but all of them were. This was obviously Jennie and Tori's baby, and they chose to feature some more than others. I just think Shannen deserved better.
  3. I'm sure he's delighted to be called "Goose fro 'Top Gun'" after 33 years......smh I think he got the part because the former ER showrunner took over. I thought Anthony was fire in the role. He plays badass really well. We need more from him. I think he's one of the most underappreciated actors in Hollywood. I'm sad it got canceled again. However I'm not surprised. Some people were put off by the language. Well you can bet these Washington insiders don't talk like Sunday School teachers when the cameras aren't on them. I think it's actually very realistic to show the language. People need to join reality.
  4. How come no one is talking about Anthony Edwards on Designated Survivor? He slayed the part. He plays cocky in charge very well. I loved seeing him in it.
  5. I think they left that as a way to explain Shannen's absence if she decided not to do a season 2 if there was one. She's said she feels like this was a one and done thing for her. It makes sense as underutilized as she was, especially in the first three episodes. Side note: I got kicked out of a BH90210 group on Facebook for saying they were marginalizing Shannen so I hope this doesn't get me blacklisted here. I do feel like Shannen was marginalized because we barely saw her, especially in the first 3 episodes. I also don't get the whole eating thing. I don't recall any eating disorder rumors with her back in the 90's that might make her want to be eating. I do think they marginalized her because they knew she was only there to honor Luke and not because she really wanted or needed to be And I think the cutting one was their easy way to explain her absence if it did happen. Just my 2 cents.
  6. Actually that goes back to the original show. The directors constantly told Shannen she was looking at Jason like she wanted to banInsert other media g him not like he was her brother. She admitted she was attracted to Jason back in the beginning. This was all a nod to that.

    S14.E04: Overwhelmed

    I BELIEVE there is an apartment complex that works closely with DCC to help get the TCC set up temporarily and will let them go if it doesn't work out. There used to be for sure because they all moved into the same place for the most part. Interestingly enough, they all used to have roommates and now most seem not to. We do know some have jobs because we've seen it before. I read elsewhere that many teach dance classes to stay afloat. I know Jinelle did this. It's interesting to compare today to those 1970's and 1980's DCC TV movies. Back in the day there was no TC and you had to have a job or be married to be a DCC because you were only paid for games and appearances (like when they were on The Love Boat). Kelli really made this a big thing and has made a fortune on it. Good for her! Gina Marie reminds me of the teenager from New Jersey a few seasons back. They held her hand way too long in TC and it ended up crushing her when she was cut. They need to cut GM sooner rather than later. She's not in the league of those girls who were pom captains in college and dancers with other teams. They're so looking or another Lacey story, and she's not it. I think Kat COULD end up like KaShara. Remember her first day at TC and she wore the wrong uniform? I couldn't stand her that year. It's hard to believe that hot mess made it to the point of the triangle. I think they want to tell that story of the bottom 5 girl making the team so it could be her. It's too soon to tell.
  8. IMO Gina is the best one out there. She's also coming off more likable now. If you remember Kelli and Judy were concerned about her because she came off stuck up when she was first in TC. Now she's point of the triangle material for me. I love to watch this girl perform.
  9. All the money spent on those DCC prep classes is probably showing up in the auditions If you have a half dozen girls taking the same prep class, I'm sure it's going to come out with all their choreography looking the same or at least similar. The only way to avoid it is to hire someone to teach you who doesn't teach other girls.
  10. Who says they have to be in your home state? My niece is a competitive swimmer. I live in California where the best swim coaches are. My niece lives in the Southeast, and her coaches are great but they've not coached Olympians like the ones here have You can bet if there's a chance to get her coaching here when she visits, I'm going to take it so she gets better. If Victoria's family has access to a good coach in a different state, then why hate on them for taking advantage of the resources they have? Maybe Gina turned them on to someone. There's no shame in it. The hate for this girl is scary sad. She can't help who her family is and how many connections they have. She has a dream and is just trying to pursue it. It's obvious they're not playing favorites or she'd have been on the team last year. And to think people DM'ed her hateful things is just disgusting. You don't have to like someone but don't be mad when they take advantage of opportunities.
  11. If Kitty was a mean and nasty woman, she wouldn't have stayed all night with the TCC a couple of seasons back to help her rework her costume and routine the night before the solo because it was so bad. She's playing a character. For many she makes the show, me included.
  12. I think maybe it's because those are people who are friends of his so they might lie for him. I think he needs concrete proof so it's indisputable It's going to happen and a familiar face will be leading it. I saw it in previews, but I won't spoil it here.
  13. I agree on Victoria. She's rally maturing and coming into her own. She's definitely better than Dayton and seems to want it more. So glad Dayton finally let this one go because it was obvious it was mommy driving that bus and not her. To me Kat is the new Meagan Flaherty. (RIP). She was the center of the show season 1 and got cut late. I can see the same thing happening to Kat. They wanted to like Meagan so much because of her look (she looked like Julia Roberts for all of you who weren't around 13 years ago). At the end of the day, she couldn't do the choreography so she was cut. She was cut a second time a couple of seasons later after making it to TC I see some of the same parallels here, and I don't think they've had that story in a while where they want a girl so desperately because her look fills a void but the girl just can't make it work. I don't spoil things if I can help it so I'm excited to see how it plays out.
  14. I don't see Kitty like this I think she's just saying what she does for shock value. I'd liken her to Simon Cowell. Just curious - are you a millennial or a gen x'er? I'm Gen X and I think she's a lot like a normal coach or critic. I find her hysterical. However I have heard millennial say she's mean and awful. I'm wondering if it's a generational thing or what. See I think I would have gone deeper. I would have said "the star is a symbol of hard work and perseverance. When you first come into training camp as a rookie, all you want to do is earn that star, and you give your blood, sweat, and tears to wear it. My star represents my hard work to become a DCC and the pride I have in setting a goal for myself and achieving it. So many women don't get the privilege, and I'm grateful to be one of the few who is blessed with the honor of having it." The judges would have eaten that ish up.
