  1. I don’t like anybody on this iteration of the show. Maybe Ellie, a little, and Bini, who just desperately doesn’t want to lose another child to a baby-mama from another country who is dangling that possibility in front of him all the time, this time in the form of her ex-husband. Just gross. Will content myself reading all of the informative and insightful recaps from all of you, and I thank you!
  2. Sad to see how dark Ethan has become. He is so consumed with anger. I can’t figure Olivia out, does she want to staynwith or not? Could have done without some of of the cutesy Moriah and Matt scenes.
  3. I actually thought Angela, for all her faults, hit the nail on the head when she jumped on Natalie for her forever-victim attitude. We all know Mike is no prize, but something is off about Natalie. She constantly provokes, then claims she is a victim of Mike. I give him zero excuses for his own conduct, but nine times out of ten she is the instigator. When Trish came out and gave her her a dressing-down, it was well deserved, IMO. Brandon looks tired and clearly distressed by his father’s illness, regardless of what we think of Ron and Betty, they are his parents. He seems torn by
  4. I ised to watch this show for entertainment but that ship has sailed. The misery on the show has been magnified so much I cannot imagine any of these couples ever being together, ever, and after last night it appears most of them won’t be. I felt kinda sorry for Yara last night. Imagine having a husband gone for months at a time, you are at home with a baby and when he comes home he doesn’t want to hang with his own little family, he wants to get out there and get drunk and blow kisses to strippers (since his preferred venues of entertainment are strip clubs). I am not sure many wives
  5. Jovi and Yara were the bright spots on this show, and they are both in love with their baby girl. Mike and Natalie are the most toxic, uncomfortable to watch pair ever. She is slipping over the edge of sanity and Mike is giving her a push, which he delights in. It is truly painful to watch. Brandon’s parents; what to say? They treat Brandon and Julia as their employees, who owe it to them to work on their dream farm. If it had not been for Julia’s pouting and nagging, she and Brandon would have never left, so she deserves credit for forcing her man-child husband to grow up and move out.
  6. I watched this episode cringing in second-hand embarassment for everybody, but most importantly, myself. Couldn’t look away though. I was almost at the point of being team Natalie. The dismal Thanksgiving gathering with all of the passive-agressive commentary from Trish and Mike was awful. Natalie outdid herself with the pouty teenager routine, however, although it was definitely worth the chuckles to watch Trish puzzle over “what she could have said to insult” Natalie. Well, Trish, you and your son with the shrugging tic acting like a couple of mean girls in junior high school could
  7. I watched the full episode, but won’t watch another. Eveybody going in circles and going nowhere and I get really ticked off when I see Mike’s face, his smirking and shrugging. Angela like nails on a chalkboard; she looks older than her 54 years.
  8. Well my attempt to add the file didn’t work. So I will say I am utterly disgusted by Kody’s attitudes about everyone in his family. It’s his own stupid fault everything has splintered apart, with his constant need to uproot everyone, ripping kids out of their schools and friends. Now he’s acting like everybody else caused the problem. His behavior while talking with Christine about Ysabel broke my heart. That poor girl listened to her father consider every way she could just live with the pain longer, it was sick. He has zero insight as to the monumental role he has played in the disinte
  9. Same. Caved and signed up for the primo-edition no commercials version. Some interesting stuff. Will check out Pig Royalty along with all the 90 DF spinoffs except HEA.
  10. That annoyed the heck out of me. And that mad me really sad. What a jerk. Acting like he’s at his real home there, with his “real” children. I got the vibe from Gabe that he’s kinda over his dad’s favoritism too.
  11. Many thanks to all of you who watched the episode and are relating it here. I got ten minutes in and switched off. The show is at a standstill, nothing advances and goes anywhere, just characters going nowhere either. I don’t need high drama every week, but would like to understand what is going on. Don’t care about the Princess, Yumiko, not really even Eugene anymore. I had hoped to see how humanity could rebuild itself, but it’s not about survival in an apocalypse, it’s just fighting and bad guys.
  12. I so agree. Gabe really struggled with moving from Vegas, as most teens would. Janelle resisted moving for a while because of what her kids would go through but eventually got onboard, and moved anyway. I can imagine he feels like he is not a priority in his father’s life, and neither is Janelle. If Kody wanted to see any of his kids, he would have moved heaven and earth to figure it out, including outdoor visits. It’s all on Kody.
  13. Once again the younger Brown kids asked the right questions and made the more insightful comments, particularly Christine’s three daughters upon hearing of mom’s desire to pick up AGAIN and move back to Utah. Christine appeared to really be flummoxed by their position. The rationality and common sense should just for once, come from the adults, not the kids. Luckily those kids have watched this assortment of “parents”, shall we say, and have concluded there must be a better way. Kody’s reference to each wife’s kids as “their kids”, meaning the mom’s kids, annoys me to no end. Robyn’s cute
  14. The producers must have put out a casting call to find the most awful, inconsiderate, creepy men they could get. (Except Zied, I think he legitimately seems bewildered by most of this and Rebecca is a mystery to him and besides I like him a lot.) That being said, these women are a little off too. I am loathe to admit, but I felt pangs of sympathy for Natalie. Her pain seems real. I hope she realizes one day that she is so much better off without him; Mike is certainly no prize. Same for Amira. I get underlying anger issues with Andrew and and Brandon. Andrew’s sudden turn on Amira
  15. While there has been plenty of advice to Natalie to “get over it” and “move past it”, most especially from Mike, I would submit that the same thing goes for him. He is unable to get over the fact she threw the ring back at him, which I have no doubt cut him deeply. It is possible, I think, that Natalie regrets that, and realizes this may have been a fatal mistake in their relationship, but now you can’t unring the bell. So he goes ahead and brings her over here and then proceeds to act like she is dirt on his shoe. (But I am sure he has not refused to have sex with her though). Through
  16. These people. Yara and her endless complaining. I don’t know how she could ever stay with any guy, she would complain them to death. Jovi is no prize, but he always has a bewildered look on his face; has no idea what to do to make her happy, and I don’t know either. I hope she can at least crack a smile at the baby. Watching Mike and Natalie is pure depression. He is enjoying her confusion and, dare I say, heartache? She realizes she blew it when she threw the ring back at him, but he does not appear willing or able to move past that. At this point, I am annoyed with him that he
  17. While I have missed a few seasons episodes here and there, I have watched this show for a long time. However, now there is a relentless stream of Whitney self-analyzing herself, her life, everything about her, her, and her. I should think she would have been bored by herself by now. I am amazed that for all of her complaining about what is wrong in her life, she makes zero effort to change anything. Nobody has stopped her from losing weight, she just hasn’t done it, even knowing the health risks she faces. Which is fine, but for the love of God, stop complaining about it and how it is rui
  18. Mike does not even make an effort to conceal his disdain for Natalie. When she asked him to pray with her, he was incredibly hostile and condescending. Let her go back home, Mike, it’s obvious you don’t want to marry her so stop stringing her along. His open hostility to her is cringy. I am on team Zied. Poor guy leaves his comfy home to fly around the world and land in a barren empty apartment without even a scone or donut in sight to eat or a sofa to eat it on, and a fiance who seems befuddled by how to manage her life and can only keep repeating “ex from Morocco”, and be interrog
  19. I like Julia, but I really cannot stand to watch Brandon. He is intimidated by his parents, which of course is what they want, and their relentless scolding and harping as if they are scolding five-year olds has worn my last nerve. Yeah, their house, their rules, I get it, but Brandon should be able to at least afford a semi-shabby studio where he and Julia could live. And mama’s insinuations about sex and clouding up the hot tub give me the creeps. As I’ve said before, Mike needs a woman who is not needy and insecure like Natalie, and doesn’t need him to validate her existence. The
  20. Mike strikes me as the kind of guy who needs a low-maintenance woman, not a constantly needy one who needs constant help and validation. Natalie is just not that girl. Neither one of them are bad people, just not good together. He seems pretty worn out on her already. Same thing with Jovi; he’s the same type of guy just in New Orleans. You can’t live out in the wood (Natalie) or have a guy be gone for weeks at a time for work and not be able to sustain yourself without your boyfriend around all the time. Stephanie is in a state of delusion if she thinks Ryan has any passing interest in
  21. This is the most joyless set of couples ever. I sense not a shred of undying love between any of them, with the possible exception of needy Rebecca and Stephanie, who are clinging to these men like life boats on the Titanic. In fact, there is open hostility with some of them: Mike and Natalie, Jovi and Yara. The only fun couple are Betty and Ron, Brandon’s parents, she even laughlingly admitted her main fear of Brandon and Julia sharing a room was so “we don’t have to hear anything”, implying they are not morally opposed to them having sex, they just don’t want the “trauma” of hearing their
  22. Kudos to Ethan for standing up to his parents, and standing up for his wife. I haven’t watched this show from the beginning so I have no idea why Kim and Barry are so against Olivia, but it doesn’t look like they have tried too much with her. Always putting up walls to “protect” the other kids, which so far has proven to be a futile effort with the older kids. Ethan was strong and confident and delivered a long-overdue slapdown to his smug arrogant parents and their behavior. They are weird people. Then the food-fight at the end. I am all for having some messy fun, but it almost seemed l
