    Episode Discussion: TFGH

    Julian, get Kim out of town ASAP. Nothing good can happen in PC since everyone's been drinking the stupidity-inducing water again. I'm having a lot of trouble willingly suspending my disbelief enough to accept a plot in which a patient who's just had an unknown, brain-changing procedure performed on him essentially against his will is left alone, unmonitored by person or device (except unofficial drop-ins), not in an ICU or an isolation unit; and when he "decides" to leave the hospital, neither hospital personnel or burly acquaintances attempt to stop him or call hospital security. Good Grief.

    That was (I think) supposed to be the painting that Helena left Nik, complete with her drinking tea because it was suspected, at least among the audience here, that he had poisoned her tea and killed her. But in the quick look I got at it, it looked like someone in the prop department had touched it up to make the cup of tea the focal point.

    Well, to be fair, I did enjoy his acting during the first half hour of the show when he was playing Unconscious Man With Mystery Identity. Truly. I was asking myself, "Didn't they do this already?" I like him and would hate to see someone who can actually act leave, but this would be a really good Kristina Finds Herself story. I'm not even going to blame James Franco for it any more. The suck that is the current Franco totally belongs to FV and RoHo. The original character never had Heather or Scotty as a parent, a brain tumor, or a past of abuse (for starters). He should have been left dead when Jason killed him offscreen.

    Dumas had agreed to stand down, but after seeing three of his men die, he changed his mind. Teresa saw that they had an opportunity to tell Oksana what El Gordo had done and convince her to remove her support of him. It worked, so Oksana backed Teresa and Dumas and stood aside so Dumas could kill El Gordo.

    But at least we were spared watching Michael engage in passionless intimacies.

    Say Yes To The Dress

    True. In spite of what Pnina and the wedding industry tells the brides, most people don't remember the dress much at all. Additionally, all those brides who want people to say, "Wow!" when they appear in the doorway of the sanctuary are forgetting that most people aren't sitting on the aisle. They're only going to see a bit of your dress, then a bit more, maybe, from the side as you pass, and other bits of it when you're facing the pastor. Folks will remember if it was strapless or not, or maybe if it had lace or sleeves, but chances are, they don't really care that much. And, I guess maybe even Pnina knows that because I did a little research and discovered her "Love" line at Kleinfeld is the less expensive one. You can view it here: https://www.kleinfeldbridal.com/designers/love-by-pnina-tornai/ It includes the one below, which, I admit, would make people say, "Wow!" and remember it, not necessarily for the same reasons as the bride:

    Say Yes To The Dress

    Oh, absolutely. Especially when they trotted out Pnina in her sequin-covered daywear. She had no trouble telling the bride that she should absolutely want to wear a $12000 dress on her wedding day. Wasn't Pnina making a less expensive line, with, I dunno, rhinestones instead of crystals or something, but not customizable? How come we don't hear about that? It seem like, if it still exists, it would have contained something that would have been a good compromise.

    Say Yes To The Dress

    Overall, there were three likable brides in this episode. The Lazaro bride picked a truly lovely dress and was so happy that it was almost impossible not to be happy for her. As odd as the Hayley Paige dress was (and I agree about the top/bottom mismatch), the bride was excited about it, so good on her. I was starting to get a bit irritated with the $6000 budget, I must have Pnina bride, but it was definitely refreshing to hear her say she'd put up the balance of the money so her mother wouldn't have to go over what she'd budgeted.

    When you're a crack PI, aren't you supposed to be tossing a place in a way that the actual inhabitant wouldn't know you'd been there? So some time would pass before he or she realized what you actually took was gone? But I guess when you're making enough noise during your search that the room's inhabitant only has to wait for you to open the door and get caught, those questions don't matter anyway.

    Well, now we know who to truly blame for the multiple governmental and post-hurricane crises there. Sonny! Now, a good story would be the authorities coming after him and putting him in a foreign jail for a while. offscreen.

    To be fair, he did close his eyes before he pulled the trigger.
  12. Oh, good grief. I'm having rage blackouts as I try to type. RoHo gets to play a new character? Who else gets to stay on a show when the characters and revisions of characters and revisions of revisions of characters don't make the audience love him? Especially when said actor goes for long stretches phoning in his work. I can see all kinds of possible ick coming up with Elizabeth and FranDrew. Remember, she was crazy about Drew/Jason/Amnesia Boy back when he first showed up. Putting her with essentially all of those guys plus a dose of Franco would dredge up all kinds of uncomfortable things that I don't think will be dealt with well. Why couldn't we keep Billy Miller and get rid of RoHo??? (insert crying emoji here)

    I loved it when she said, " I was holding people hostage here long before you came to town." KG is such a good, multi-dimensional actress, I'm happy whenever she's on the screen. Too bad we have to see so much of Carly and so little of Liesl. I really was a little surprised that drunken Lulu didn't remind him of the part he played in Nathan's death.

    Say Yes To The Dress

    This has been a grievance of mine for quite a while, too. Somehow the women are all long-waisted, so the "natural" waist of the dress looks good. Most women have considerably less space between their waistlines and their bustlines, and a dress with a natural waist cuts them in half and isn't as flattering as the sketch. In addition, the designer sketches never have women with much more than a scant B-cup, while in reality the most common US woman's cup size is a 34DD.

    Say Yes To The Dress

    You can see the mom at 1:28 and 2:30. The final dress seemed to be pretty much everything that was discussed -- little rhinestone straps, sequined off-the-shoulder straps, single-layer skirt scattered with sparkly things -- makes me wonder if they went back and had Pnina do a custom dress or if they took all the ideas somewhere else and had the dress created. Also interesting to me: what I'll call the "modesty jacket" that she wore during the church service was not flattering at all. Why spend many thousand on a dress and then top it off with a shapeless coverup? There are other options.
