  1. I will say that it is rare and refreshing to see someone actually admit the truth even though it hurts their own case. Will they supply funky backgrounds like Levin's? Will Douglas jump in and out of the Zoom calls to swear people in? I am intrigued about how they would make this work. Also - I'm sure at least one litigant will say "I don't have it here right now," and then run off to somewhere in their house and start rifling through their stuff to find it. 😄 The editors will be busy!
  2. Hubby and I have been binge watching this for a few weeks now. I love how she was going to Ronnie's house to watch the movie dressed in her insane stilettos and the blouse with a million blinding paillettes. As the evening wore on, she stayed with Johnny, lost the shoes, changed into a robe, and was the one who greeted Jocelyn and Roland at the door. She wasn't as incompetent as she pretended to be. 😉
  3. We've been watching the entire series on the CBC website and just saw this episode today. These days, a masked customer is the only kind you want in your store. 😉
  4. This bothered me a lot too. After it was brought up, I almost felt like I needed a shower. I'm not sure what the laws are in the US, or if they vary from state-to-state, but at least here in Quebec, this would be a big no-no. As an example, there was a case in my neck of the woods where three teenagers broke into a house and killed the elderly couple who lived there and stole the money they found in the apartment - I think it was for drugs. This was back in 1994. There were many letters to the local newspaper that could not be published at the time, because you could infer from the details who the kids actually were - and underage people cannot be identified in the press for a crime - even for murder. Many years later, one of them was identified - only because he brought up the point in court because it was somehow related to the current charge that he was being tried for. To this day, the other two kids have never been publicly identified and cannot be unless they permit it, because it's against the law. So, while I have zero sympathy for the P for what his sister claims he did, I was surprised by all the airing of the dirty laundry. Levin really seems to be going for the seamiest cases possible these days - though he appears to have found his razors and is either using some funky Zoom background or pulled a gold lamé curtain out of storage to hang behind him.
  5. Oooh, I missed both of these as I was folding laundry as I watched. P totally looked like he was going to blow a head gasket. I liked how in one of these cases, JM said that "phones are not just for taking pictures of your food," so she's moved past the "nasty picture" spiel. "Plumber, he hardly knew her!" JFC Levin, enough with these already!!!!!!!!!
  6. I happened to see part of this thread before seeing the episode so when I watched it this evening, I looked out for it. I rewound it to listen a 2nd time and she clearly said shin. We have a decent stereo system hooked up to the TV, and I definitely heard shin. The guy selling his fridge: A few years ago, my husband was selling an engine and someone tried to scam us in the same way - but with PayPal. At first I was really confused trying to understand why someone would offer to pay a large sum to have the engine shipped - without having any info about how much shipping would actually cost, and then we realized that it was a scam.
  7. I was thinking about Leaf Lady again, because I was thinking about another recent case where two women had hired a young guy to build a deck or patio. He had also underbid the job, but instead of "too bad, so sad for you," JM basically raked the women over the coals. I'm trying to figure out why such a difference in her attitude between these two cases? Maybe I'm forgetting some of the details.
  8. I continue to be shocked that someone who appears to be as vain as Levin is would continue to film himself at home in such poor quality. He also appears to have lost his razor collection. Not that he was ever a prize (in my opinion, but YMMV), but as the old saying goes, these days he really looks like he's been ridden hard and put away wet. Three cases on Friday with a lot of whiners! The saga of the whining numskull breeders, the idiot guy who buys an engine as is and then whines about it, followed by Leaf Lady - who quotes a job and then whines about her stupidity. She appeared to be missing a few cups and saucers in the cupboard. Not a terribly exciting episode.
  9. I truly don't believe that child molesters can be reformed because there is something chemically-in-the-head-not-right with them, but I was surprised how honest he was about his past. Hopefully he is staying FAR AWAY from children now. It would also be fun if we could be in the peanut gallery and show up Levin with our intelligent answers (though I know that those segments are filmed at later times) Seriously, these 2 types of cases are the bread and butter of TPC. An idiot woman who trusts some loser guy with money and a moron who just can't wait to be parted from their money for a POS car. However, as for the idiot woman: I was also thinking that it seemed like a setup as well. Especially since I cannot recall ever seeing the loser guy admit to stealing all the money. This guy also said "like" so many times, that if I was playing a drinking game, I would have alcohol poisoning. I will confess, that I did like her dress.
  10. Claire was thinking about a time. I forget what book or where it was, but she mentions that she was thinking about Frank's ancestors of the past at the time that she touched the stones. Geillis also mentioned that she came to that time on purpose.
  11. I think that JM's point was, since you weren't cutting the fabric the same way you originally did, why didn't you make just one sleep cap with the other way of cutting it and get THAT approved before you cut up all that fabric and wind up where you are now. I literally gasped when I read this Angela, because all my life I wanted curly red hair. I never did dye my hair, but as a kid, I did sleep on foam curlers for a while to try and get the curly. I actually thought that if I did it long enough, it would stay curly. Once my mother corrected my disbelief, I gave up. I do know a bit about sewing, because my mother used to sew a lot (and made my wedding dress), and I often helped her pin the patterns to the fabric. There are instructions on the patterns about how to lay the pattern on the fabric so that it goes the right way with the stretch and the grain and all that. It did not help that the tailor confirmed which markings were his. My guess was that perhaps the catch wasn't well made. It would not surprise me to see that chains are manufactured with a lower quality catch. Or his wife was really pissed and rather than kick him in the balls, she hauled off on that chain as hard as she could knowing that not having it to wear would be worse on his "manhood." 😉
  12. It's been years since I've read that book but I was sure that I had correctly remembered what happened with Claire and the men. I went to dig up a summary, and I was right and they've really changed it a lot. Brown never actually raped her - it was some other guy that Claire sees many years later and tells Jenny about, who then tells Jamie and then Jamie hunts him down and kills him. Marsali never killed Brown. She was so upset and worried about retribution on the show that I'm thinking that they will spin that Henri Christian is a dwarf as her punishment for killing a man. And Bree and Roger never tried to go back at this point. I'm not seeing why they're changing so many plot points.
  13. Honestly, I don't get it. It never occurred to me to have anything else for precisely these reasons. If you introduce the snap-into-the-big-toilet-seat as the option for them, then that's what they know, and what they'll learn on. Why on earth would you give them an option to dump and spill stuff everywhere? Daymond's daughter was toilet trained at 14 months? Wow, my sons were just starting to walk at that age. Toilet training came much later and was rather painful... "Where did you go to school?" and that starts the waterworks? So tired of the crying entrepreneurs. Crochet guy was never going to get a deal, but Mark has a good point about going more for one of a kind pieces as opposed to mass market. The tie company has potential, as long as the ties look decent close up. Cheap ties usually look like cheap ties. Hopefully Daymond can help blow up the company. The dad/baby shirt. This is such a tiny, niche market thing. I really don't think you need this. You could just wear a zip-up hoody or take off your shirt. You don't need to buy a special $40 shirt.
  14. I've been sleeping with a white noise machine for over 10 years now and I cannot sleep without it. No fancy lights or anything, it's just the noise. https://www.amazon.com/Marpac-Original-Machine-Soothing-Cancelling/dp/B07NJSDBQ3/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=2TH11XZO10309&dchild=1&keywords=marpac+sound+machine&qid=1589080752&sprefix=Marpac%2Caps%2C184&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExMjhaNjVHSjdCNTMmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTAyOTIyODEyWEM5VjJFU0JBMVdEJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTAzMjYwMTkyNVlFOUs1MUVOVDNRJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ== My younger son was a terrible sleeper as a baby and I used to keep a radio on in his room at low volume for some background noise.
