Not that I am aware of. I had more issues with the other Mom. The one that, once sober, still thought it was ok to let her 18 year old daughter raise her two younger siblings while she stayed in her new location and went to college. I realize that it’s recommended that you change your life so you don’t slip into old habits/ but it’s not fair to run out on your kids and expect your other kids to raise them.

I understand your point. That was a terrible thing for an adult to say to a child. But Kendra didn’t say that. She just commented on how playing with a stick was a typical thing to do for a boy. Just as I might comment on a little girl playing dress up being a typical girl behavior. I don’t see anything wrong with commenting that a particular behavior seems like something one gender might typically do. you do. That’s ok. We are all allowed to have our own opinion and we even get to say it out loud. Sometimes we even listen to each other and take away food for thought.

I’m ok with her comment. Yes, girls often okay with trucks, etc etc. yes, boys often play with Easy Bake ovens, etc, But more boys play with trucks than girls, and more girls play with Barbies than boys. Even now as adults, we all snark about Men and their quirks and women and their quirks. I’ve rolled my eyes st some stupid men antics just as my husband had rolled his eyes at stupid women antics.

Jill’s comments on Instagram- she thanks Derick for being responsible for his own children so she could go. He is their father. He doesn’t deserve being thanked for watching his own children. You thank people for watching children that don’t belong to them because they’ve done something beyond the call of duty.
I hope the cast gets paid well. Otherwise, why stay in a show where you get a minute or two of screen time if your character isn’t Pride, Tammy, Sebastian, or Hannah? When was the last time Chris was on for more than 3 scenes?
I happen to feel that Amy is attractive, as is Zach. Look. Some types of dwarfism distorts features, while others just make the person shorter. It’s pretty tacky to make fun of people for physical features they don't control in my opinion. Now blue hair, ear coins, tattoos/ make fun of all that as much as you want. Those are choices, not what a person is born with. This is why I don’t make fun of Audrey's large mouth- she was born with it.
She wouldn’t believe it was him. Because in her belief system he would never say that. So she just ignores any articles she reads or interactions with people etc. that make her think. It’s like the old joke about a man sitting on his roof due to a flood who prays for help. Firemen, rescue boats, helicopters, etc all stop to get him and he refuses saying God will help. He ends up at the pearly gates and asks God why he didnt help. He says - I sent multiple people for you, why didn’t you accept my help?
Someone (JB) is ignoring the Gospel parables again. The story of the vineyard owner hiring people all day long and paying the last hired the same as the first directly contradicts JB. First of all, there’s not just one right person for another person. Second, If God wants you with someone, that person will be in your path. You can choose to engage with that person or not.
Maybe you aren’t ready at 20, and so another right person shows up when you are. Or maybe you are better off alone. I hate it when legalistics like JB and Michelle ignore grace.
That’s probably WHY none of them liked her. She was the one constantly having to be the adult in the family. After a while, the adult in the room has had it and reads the other supposed adults the riot act about their behavior. Which is when they choose to blame her rather than look in the mirror. Plus- she’s the one that got custody of those kids for a few years. The addict parents probably blamed her for that. I expect the ones that are now sober will eventually realize what she tried to do for them.
Sean is a perfect example of why ex-addicts shouldn’t spend time with addicts. He asked Linda if she had drugs on her, then Donna takes him thru a tour of his old haunts, then the film crew lets him help his uncle get high. I wasn't surprised at all that he relapsed. I felt so sorry for his Mom. She tries to help her extended family and her son gets caught up in it.
Most of the intervention addicts that go and stay at treatment look physically better in their 90 day interviews. Linda looked worse.
What a mess of a family. I hope the two that left treatment and didn’t go back try again.
They are very naive when it comes to political campaigns. Tia publicly goes after Gordon and his family... but thinks he won’t retaliate. She wants to hide her daughter but has her over to the house multiple times, including overnight, and tells her small son this is his sister. A son that is too young to keep secrets. She should know she’s being watched by Gordon’s political supporters.
Paul and his family come off very badly, as intended. The police come off very badly, as intended. Surely, in real life, more of the police would at least be polite. A innocent man died. now that the security tape is public some of those police ought to recognize who is in the wrong.
There’s too much heavy handed political posturing/lecturing here. I’ll watch the next episode because my spouse likes it, but I find myself annoyed all the way around.

I hated this case. I had absolutely no sympathy for New Cable’s sister and brother-in-law, and that was before the deception was uncovered. The plot line had significant holes in it. In real life, there would be places to call when the young man found himself short of personnel- the state department of corrections emergency number for one. The nearest police authority for another.
We should have heard about all the other guards aloud being fired, charged, and the prison being closed.
I did feel sympathy for new Cable.
Most likely Josh is restarting his video and website production business he had years ago. Putting it in Anna’s name keeps his name silent And allows them to declare it as female owned for diversity purposes.
I believe that Deeks shot his father at the age of 13 to stop him from beating his mother. Or do I have that confused with some other shows’ backstory? I do think his father lived and went to prison. I don’t remember why his mother wasn’t listed as next of kin though.
I quit liking him when he started being a sore loser. He spent a lot of time being angry over game strategy and loudly whining about it. Now he is being a sore winner and bullying the other players.
No, he’s not whining about camp conditions, food, etc. he’s whining because the other players don’t want to have an alliance with him. Yet a few episodes ago, when some of them did want to, he went off on them because he hadn’t been kept in the loop the day before. It’s like a 5 year old whining because his older sibling won the game of Candyland.
I was of the opinion that Paul was going to do the right thing once he watched the video until he 1) panicked when it was lost and 2) blamed the victims family for grieving. I was impressed with his anguish about ‘ you told me it was a good shoot’ when he first heard she’d stolen the tape. But then he had to go ruin it by his actions.
I’m not impressed with the thin blue line of harassment, but I find Tia to be less stellar and more self-serving than maybe I am supposed to.
I’m with the doctor’s family and the teachers’ co-workers. I especially like the high school friends.
A couple episodes ago, we were finally shown that Hetty found him as a teenager after he had a couple legal issues and escaped a foster home. She took him home to live with her. So I think that’s why he is loyal to Herty.
Thanks for the summary on Callens’ family. I don’t think I watched the first season much, so I missed a bit, the first I can remember about his background is the episode when Hetty goes to visit the people trying to kill him and almost dies herself?
