    S15.E10: Week 10

    I didn't pay much attention to rednose's face, but I loved her resort-wear wardrobe!

    LOL! I think he has a weird-looking triangle head. So not my kind of guy.

    I was so annoyed at her putting Zeus and Aphrodite together. So not canon! Sometimes she's his daughter. (See my interest in Greek mythology in my avatar — and space, too!) From one website:

    S15.E10: Week 10

    I love this concept that Hannah slipped. "Oops! Your penis fell into my vagina! It was an accident, Luke, I promise!" I'm kind of amazed how Hannah is standing up for herself as her own woman, considering a lot of Christian women (at least evangelicals) are taught they are to be secondary to their husbands in their marriages (you know, the old-style promise to obey. Luke is totally into that, and it only makes him creepier.) You go, Hannah, put that dolt in his place! I lol'd so hard at Luke not wanting to get his ass up out of that chair. And the steam practically coming out of her ears. Oops. Too bad she saved the "bucket-list helicopter-flight date to postcard-beautiful Santorini" for Luke. I could almost see the scales fall from her eyes, as the biblical saying goes. I was almost sure Jed grousing about Luke was his "out" and bid to get ejected so he could be the bachelor (GAG ME.) Guess not. Peter is a cutie. I'm kind of rooting for him now.

    Me, either. I'm not a Christian, or any religion -- it's just my internal feelings about intimacy. Just the thought squicks me out. That said, I can't wait to see Luke's born-again head explode. He and Hannah speak the same fundie language, what with the "testimony" and all, but he's put such a hard edge on it, and he's judgmental to begin with, so he'd be a monster to date. I'm not looking forward to the group prayer session with his fam next week. I hate group-grope displays of faith. Mike would be a fun bachelor. I like him! The below post is so awesome, I bolded the best parts to share again...
  6. Exactly this. He totally has entered the "get off my lawn" era of his lifetime. I'm really getting sick of him, because he's becoming stuck in his views and one-note on his show. Don't the elders of every generation complain about "kids these days"? Can there BE anymore of an indicator that you're no longer moving with the times? He and Fran Leibowitz went on and on about it last week, and this week we got his graduation speech. I'm approaching 60, and I hope never to become one of those elders. Bill should read this.
  7. I'm really getting over Bill Maher. All he does is bitch about how parents are raising their kids, from a guy who has none! That and social justice warriors, all because his invitation to speak at a university was withdrawn when students protested, because he's anti-Muslim. Get off it, Bill. You're just so butt hurt, but it's not funny.

    Chernobyl

    True. Another difference is no one was stopping a person from checking the air quality and publishing their results in our FREE PRESS. That's probably the biggest difference between our representative democracy and a communist or dictatorial regime. The closed hearing and punishment for anyone not toeing the "company line" is apparent.

    Chernobyl

    I googled it immediately after. I means eternal memory, and apparently there's a very somber musical piece by that name. I believe Russians use it like we do "rest in peace".

    Chernobyl

    Excellent series. I went to work at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation right after the meltdown, in communications. My PR coworkers had just given interviews with the likes of Connie Chung at 60 Minutes because we also had a graphite reactor. It was already shut down and was undergoing massive safety renovations., and definitely had a different design. It was actually a weapons reactor. I am always puzzled by the Soviet Union, the philosophy, the thinking behind the way they governed. It just blows me away that they wouldn't want the scientific truth, in a closed hearing, no less. I never understood the appeal while watching The Americans, either. I see many Emmys coming for this show.

    S31.E07: Living Fearlessly

    I believe she was trying to manipulate Nicole and Victor into being the ones to U-turn Team Fun, so she didn't have to. Pretty stinky. Can't wait until the duck-lipped pair is gone.

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    Yeah, it was way too sudden and over the top. Not slamming the acting at all. I'm tired of seeing people tell me there were all these "signs" Dany was going to go mad. Mostly in the recent seasons I saw people wondering about her parentage, and coin-flipping, but those aren't her actions being judged, it's her DNA. Which is really uncool. But I could do the same justification with pretty much every character, if the writers had chosen to warp the character at the 11th hour. For instance, Bran is now actually evil. That's why he had no emotion in saying goodbye to Meera, or seeing Hodor die. He arranged for the Night King to get killed so he could take his place. He didn't warn anyone about the coming annihilation of KL -- he actually warged into Drogon to make it happen, which is why we don't see Dany after the chaos and destruction start. OK, I don't believe that, but there's just as much evidence for it as there is for Dany going bonkers. Or Sansa is a new Cersei, plotting for her own power. Again, plenty of evidence to read it that way if the writers had gone there. Or, how about Tyrion plotted all along to become the king in all but name. He was intentionally giving Dany bad advice. Or, Jon is a depressive, and commits suicide in a shocking finale. There's plenty of evidence to support that's where his head is at. My point being there wasn't any more evidence of Dany ending up where she did than of any other character getting character assassinated at the last minute.

    I would have loved to see Sansa release her from her oath so she could be head of the king's guard. I assume that's what she's doing in KL, which explains why Pod is now wheelchair-pusher-in-chief. I think the writers realized the table was full of MEN and had to figure out a way to get a woman in there. I wish we'd gotten that scene, though.

    Not as bad as I feared. The character beats got the time to play out, unlike most of the season. For me, Daenerys was an alternate version of the character who took over last episode, someone I don't recognize. Other than that, it was fine. I love Arya going west of Westeros. I love that Davos and Brienne and Podrick survived. Am not keen on Bran as king — it's really Tyrion who will be ruling, since Bran apparently has such a short attention span he won't even attend a meeting of his own small council. Why weren't they discussing cleaning up the city? Tending to the wounded? Why are ships more important? Sansa being queen is OK, but really weird considering her bro is the king of the other six kingdoms. While the idea of a kingsmoot to choose future leaders is cool, I can't see it lasting with the rest of the feudal system remaining unchanged. Not when one of them has a son who thinks he should be the next king. Were the Dothraki going back to the Great Grass Sea? And were the Unsullied going to remain an army for the king, other than Greyworm's boatload? Why did we care that Jon was R + L = J? It came to nothing. (Same can be said for Dany birthing dragons and withstanding fire.. and the whole Prince who was Promised stuff Melisandre kept going on about.) Ghost gets all the luv....thank goodness! ETA: I forgot about Bronn. HATE that he got rewarded. How could anyone trust a pure mercenary?
