    Initially, I thought Dale was going to be one of the angry, combative, butthole hoarders, but he was a pretty quiet, low-key, gentle guy and his family seemed to love him. I liked him and even found myself tearing up when he did. He may be making slow progress, but getting into counseling and refraining from dragging home more stuff are both important steps. I hope he succeeds! I think having a community will be a good thing for him, as long as they don't overwhelm him. I'd love to see a follow-up.

    I saw that, too, and I have no doubt it's true. I can see them doing that! On second thought, it lends a bit more toward April being desperate (since she left her journals). Hopefully, she can heal herself and the kids. Although I'm over all these families, I'm rooting for April. I still believe Auralee about those particular clothes, not that it matters to me. I just think they are all full of it.

    I believe Auralee, but ... I am glad April left. I think ALL of them have "issues". April's decision to leave, IMO, doesn't absolve her of her own complicity in that shitshow. Hopefully her children have a chance to live a more normal life. I do applaud April for getting out, but (barring any abuse) I hope the kids aren't alienated from their father. (I think polygamy in itself is abusive, but I guess that's subjective.) Even if her decision to get out was just an f-you to Drew and the other wives (which I tend to believe), it's all good. Maybe she is the sane one, but again, I think they're all assholes -- April included.

    S08.E04: Strangers in Paradise

    Regarding Luke and Kate: Not to beat a dead horse about her smoking, but I'm pretty sure that during the on-camera interview he mentioned smoking when asked what could be a deal breaker. I definitely remember one of the guys saying it. I'm pretty sure it was Luke, but I could be misremembering. Either way, there's no reason to use a phrase like "dead inside" and "repulsed". That's what makes him a jerk, IMO. He doesn't have to be into her -- that's totally fine. I can think of many nicer, less assholish ways to tell someone "I'm not feeling it with you".
  6. ^ This is exactly what I was thinking.

    S02.E04: Washing Off Prison

    Marcelino is the kind of guy who initially makes an impression as a chill dude, but... If one pays close attention, his "buttons" bulge against the need for control and his barely-contained rage. He seems to be the kind of guy who would cut your throat when you break up with him. I could see in Brittany eyes that she most likely sees his true colors, but she had no resources to escape him during that dinner. I truly hope she gets away ASAP. Alarm bells are blaring and screaming-- I truly feel she could be in real danger.

    S01.E24: One Day You'll Thank Me

    (I may have misunderstood about the meetings, so the methadone idea may be totally off base, but--) Yes, methadone clinics typically dose early (say 5am to 9am). On weekends and holidays they may only stay open for an hour or so (but they try to give as many clients as possible a take home dose). (I'm familiar with how the 2 in my area work, but I can't speak for all the them.) Sometimes this show makes me sad. There's just so much dysfunction and helplessness. When Kyler the Lump is goals, well that's a bit frightening, lol. I can't help but root for these people, though. The babies deserve a chance so that they don't perpetuate another cycle of this mess. Agreed about Jade's mom -- she's a damn vulture.

    S01.E24: One Day You'll Thank Me

    I wonder if Sean is going to the methadone clinic. Many of them have in-house counseling -- some of it's really good and some of it isn't. It depends on location as far as what's offered, the costs, if insurance covers it, etc. $17 a day sounds about right for methadone. Most of the time methadone is a daily, in-house treatment, taken in front of a nurse. Once the patient proves they're responsible (clean drug screens are the main thing, but maybe working the program, etc), they can take home weekend doses, then work up to taking home maybe three days, then 1 week, then 2 weeks worth, even up to a month. Again, it really depends on the state (though I think there are some fed guidelines). Methadone can be a godsend or it can be a shitty substitute. It really depends on so many factors. The way they're describing things, it really sounds like that's what he's doing. If he can get clean and get his shit together (and he and Jade can learn to communicate rather than argue), more power to them.

    Gross. Gross. Gross. :/ Pettiness: I see he has the "I'm an asshole" calling card -- the always misspelled "your" instead of "you're" (also see: they're/their).

    S03.E01: Home Sweet Home?

    I agree about Russ and Pao. I feel for Russ. He chose someone who is his equal, he's low drama, responsible, seems genuine, isn't mean/spiteful, and truly seems like a good guy. Pao also once seemed genuine and was enjoyable to watch, but not now. She's always seemed somewhat self-absorbed, but she's changed so much, and not in a good way. They were one of the couples I thought would be fine, but I have a feeling things are much worse than what we're seeing here. I hope that some of the drama is for TV. I don't like to see good people get hurt, and Russ seems like a good guy who deserves better.

    Fabio: I appreciate his aesthetic and think he makes beautiful pieces. Some of it may not be to my taste, but I like looking at it, appreciate it on others, and would wear some pieces. I sure do love Fabio himself, though ... MMMPPHH. I don't think I could tire of him. Besides being (and sounding) beautiful, he seems so genuinely kind. That makes him even more beautiful to me. (More Fabio, please!) I ended up really liking this season. I loved the finalists, loved their interactions, and appreciated the almost non-existent drama. I'll take more just like this. (I do wish Ken had a spot in the finale, too. I really felt for him!) Any of them winning would have been fine with me. I liked all the collections, though some pieces from each stood out more than others. There was nothing life-changing here, but it was all beautiful, well-made, solid, lovely work. I don't envy the judges. I hope PR and PRAS are not canceled. I really love all incarnations of PR. I'm not too proud to admit it. :)
