    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    I don't think that Bonnie Zimmerman's ex-husband killed her over the $4k per se. I think he did it (again Occam's razor) but it was from some probably long-festering anger at her and maybe the letter demanding the 4k was the straw that broke the camel's back. We were never given the backstory about their divorce, so we really don't know what could have pushed him to kill her. Some people have very long fuses, but when they finally blow, all hell breaks loose.

    S02.E01: Acting Up

    Thank you Angelsmom1009. I don't remember some of the details of season 1 such as Papi being into women and men, so it's good to be reminded. Plus I guess there are some people who have that affect on others in the way they are so attracting to people, whatever their sexual identification. Upthread there was mention of a trans model from the 1970s (and it wasn't generally known she was trans). This brought to mind another model of the 60s & 70s who is rumored to be trans but denies it. Her name is Amanda Lear and the most famous photo of her was the cover of a circa 1973 Roxy Music album where she was walking a panther. For those of you of a certain age, she was also the Hostess of this bizarre special version of a Friday night music show called The Midnight Special. The special was called "The 1980 Floor Show" and starred David Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust phase and included an incredibly beautiful (and stoned) Marianne Faithful as well as a 60s band called The Troggs and a LA based prog rock flamenco band called Carmen. Amanda Lear was sort of the emcee and she was gorgeous in that really decadent European way of the early 70s. She was said to be the lover of Salvador Dali, and that he was the one to pay for her sex change operation. If you like reading about this sort of thing, do the dive on the 'net and you'll find some fun reading.

    S02.E01: Acting Up

    So I'm super thrilled that Pose is back! That being said, I still think Elektra's over the topness (i.e. "overacting" by the actress) is part and parcel of who Elektra is supposed to be. This is a person who you know grew up watching every Joan Crawford/Bette Davis/Marlene Dietrich/name any actress/so-called "women's films" from the 30s through the 50s. These movies were a staple of tv when I was growing up (60s - 70s) and Elektra is projecting that kind of drama. The clothes, the furs, the just too much of everything is just enough, along with the Attitude in Spades. Hollywood fantasy which average women drank up and America's Drag Queens took as inspiration. And kind of a weird question from me here: Angel is stunningly beautiful - probably one of the most beautiful people I've ever seen on tv. You can see how the straight men all want her, but I don't get the thing with Pepi. Isn't he supposed to be gay? Why would a transgender woman be that attractive to a gay man, who logic would tell me would want a man and not a woman? What am I not getting here?

    I was under the impression that Lauren didn't have much dating experience. She also seemed to be a "good girl" and probably liked to please the people closest to her which made her a good target for an abusive boyfriend. And many young women seem to be attracted to older boyfriends as they feel "protected" by an older man.

    I remember reading about this Dateline case around the time it happened. The police dropped the ball on this one, and like others, I don't understand why Lauren didn't change her phone number when the creep started with the endless phone harassment. Frankly, there should be classes taught in school starting in the 7th grade on how to spot an abuser and avoid an abusive relationship. First it starts subtly and when the victim puts up with the minor abusive behavior, it escalates. It sounds as if Lauren tried to get out of the relationship fairly quickly (to me it appeared that they had been dating for less than 3 months) but it was already too late. Speaking of abusive relationships, there is a doozy of a case (you know its going to be a future Dateline episode) that is on-going in CT at the moment. Beautiful woman from a wealthy family, mother of 5 children, has been "missing" for over 3 weeks. Her blood has been found in her very large house, and she was in a nasty divorce/custody battle with her estranged husband who was playing house with his mistress - a woman described as "an international businesswoman". Hubby and side-dish have been caught on CCTV disposing of trash bags in 30 locations and the police are combing a large trash dump with cadaver dogs trying to find the missing wife (who you know damn well is dead). Victim's mother has the kids staying with her in a ritzy Manhattan apartment with armed security guards. Interesting case.

    NCIS: New Orleans

    Finally finished up this show watching back to back episodes of River Styx 1 & 2. Well, at least they didn't kill of Issler, who I always enjoy when he's part of the show. If they are going to kill off anybody, please let it be Pride! And somebody in the writers' room is really into torture porn when it comes to Pride! Who appears to be some sort of super hero who can take a lickin and keep on tickin (rolls eyes here). And not only gets the crap beaten out of him and injected with various truth serums but then seemingly only hours later - can get up and boogie at the bar with his pals. The show must have gotten a bigger budget with the end episodes as the entire gang was on board from Issler to the dreaded Angel of Death or whatever (Jessica Lang she ain't). This season was better (or at least I found it more watchable) than last year's season and I hope that next year's will be better. I had really enjoyed this show during it's first couple of years when Zoe McClennan (Ms. "Unfuckable" according to Len Moonves) was on and after they dumped her the writing just seemed to go to hell. I really wish they'd just go back to the murder of the week and can the international Big Bad plots but unfortunately, that seems to be the way these NCIS shows have been going.

    Fosse/Verdon

    Must say, I thought the same thing. Just awful - in a show with otherwise good casting - yep "What were they thinking?" Also, I just watched the videos of Bebe Neuwirth and of Liza/Goldie. Wow - that Bebe was slinky and almost - dare I say it? - Dirty (in a good way!). As lousy as the video quality was, it just about melted my computer screen! I'm mainly familiar with her from Madam Secretary, and I knew she was a Broadway star, but yowza! On the other hand, the Liza/Goldie version didn't do it for me. Yeah, Liza is a great singer and both women could move but it was almost too chipper and cheerful, and despite their cool outfits, not sexy to me in the least bit.

    S16. E24. Daughters

    I used to like this show and I never watched it in it's "glory days". I like the cast but I'm finding myself disliking how the cast is being portrayed and this new stupidity of having Gibbs talking to his dead ex-wife (and yeah, the NCIS New Orleans crap of Pride talking to some dead bimbo was too, too, much as well) is just no. And major eye rolling with the over-the-top Fornell and his constant wailing of "MY LITTLE GIRL". WTF? I'm beginning to think most of these tv writers have major Daddy issues or something. Seems like every other show features some "father" just losing it over a daughter. And the girl playing the 20 year old "Little girl" - ugh. And so the White Middle Class opioid crisis finally hits NCIS. I don't know what to say about Ziva other than they must've made that actress an offer she couldn't refuse. I kept reading that she was never, ever, coming back to NCIS so somebody must have dangled some big $$$ in order to get her to return. I have no skin in the Ziva game as she was almost out of the show when I started watching, so I have no opinions about her.

    Fosse/Verdon

    Kind of speaking of "Dark Approach" - I wonder if this show is going to delve into Fosse's last movie "Star 80"? Talk about a harrowing "statement" of a movie!

    Killing Eve

    I think it conveyed that Eve was really worried about V but was trying so hard to sound casual when she felt anything but.

    OK - so I would love to take Liam's lawyer and rub the guy's face in a hot, steaming pile of Great Dane feces. I get it - a lawyer gets paid to get their clients off, but REALLY???? How does somebody like that guy sleep at night?

    S06.E22: Crazy Hair and a Teeny Tiny Part of Canada

    Roscoe is a person of color? And Stephen Weber is probably still plotting to take back New Orleans (bad shout out to NCIS: New Orleans where he was the bad guy mayor).

    Unforgotten

    I agree with this 100%! When most people think of "Psychopath" or "Sociopath" they think of Ted Bundy or Saddam Hussein. The reality is, most of them are not serial killers or 3rd world dictators but walking out among the rest of us. Frankly, many of them seem to wind up in top or middle management in companies where they can exert power and control over those unlucky enough to work under them. I worked for one for 12 years and I'll tell you, after the experience it becomes very hard to trust other people. I had this woman pegged pretty early on but all the damage she did to the people who had to work under her or in the company in general. It was like she lived to take the smile off of other people's faces, and she'd lie, cheat, and steal to do it and got away with it for many years. It was chilling - hope I never meet anybody else like that ever again.

    Killing Eve

    No, didnt look like a Bosch. I looked it up - its called The Corpses of the De Witt Brothers. They were apparently two Dutch aristocrats who got caught on the wrong side of violent revolution. Ugh.
