  1. OMG! I had the EXACT same reaction! I don't know what it was... Are his eyebrows different? Was it the scruffiness? It was so weird! Ah, you also mentioned perhaps it was the subdued-edness of his performance -- I did think that was part of it, too. The replicant feeling was very strong.
  2. This. We’ve had gangly youngsters before, like Zendaya, but gosh, Skai comes across as really gangly. Maybe we got a hint from her friends about the deer in the headlights problem: she’s shy, so maybe she struggles with live performances? Chrishell seems like a genuinely nice person, but Gleb has been dancing around her posing for weeks. AJ is a good dancer and performer, but I’m finding his dances completely forgettable. I wonder why. I’m so bummed about Jeannie. I really miss her energy. I hope she has a speedy recovery. Justina for the win!
  3. That’s pretty much it, she’s a regular every day person. I was looking forward to seeing her on DWTS, but she’s lower key performance-wise than I was expecting. I do see her improving every week, getting more relaxed. I thought she had good hip action. She’s a great mentor for her Cheer team members. She’s not a super warm huggy kind, but is really supportive of them. Justina’s dress looked like the formal version of the feather duster/maid in Beauty and the Beast. So far Justina, Jeannie , and Nev although he’s a little odd are my faves.
  4. This! Her Up! dance in Disney week was my favorite that week because she performed it so well. I’d never heard of her before DWTS, and I look forward to her packages and dances now. Brandon seems the perfect partner for her, too. Skai keeps getting overscored. Like others, I find her Bambi-ness and much younger than 18 looks off-putting. Not sure why the youthfulness bothers me so much. I had thought Peta looked like she’d been injured during the dance — I noticed that neck grab and wince. Hope she’s feeling better. I can’t believe how enjoyable Nelly’s samba was! I wonder what brought about the change.
  5. Did not get the love for Skai’s dance. She stood there for too long in the beginning, and again at a later point. I has the same issue with Chrishell’s last week and this week. I don’t know when Tyra changed her outfit, but I do know my reactions was “what fresh hell is that??” Geez, her hair, her makeup, that second dress... AND SHE IS AN EXEC PRODUCER on the show! Did I miss that mirrors spread COVID-19 so they had to remove them? On the other hand, I think the female pros have looked especially pretty this season.
  6. I miss Tom. I think part of the difficulty for Tyra was a necessary vast space between her and the competing couples when she’d talk to them. It makes a difference, harder to create warmth across that distance. Loved Justina, and am surprised no one has mentioned her yet. Everyone who didn’t watch Carole and Pasha missed Pasha’s excellent rear in those leopard pants. Actually, I missed Carole’s dance... because of Pasha’s excellent rear. Dancers have the best bums.
  7. I’m so excited about Justina Machado! I loved her on Jane the Virgin. Also looking forward to Vernon Davis, a former 49er who has or had art galleries in the area. The head coach from Cheer (Msomething Aldama) will be interesting and should be good with choreography. I like Johnny Weir, and he’ll probably be good, too. The artwork! Ugh, I can’t believe Tyra is the poster. I still love Anna’s purple dress one the most. I’m so bummed about Tom. He’s the best.
  8. I nearly skipped the Godspell and Pippin episodes because I didn’t know those musicals, but they were two of my favorite episodes. The reactions of their kids in the audience during the Flesh Dance! Oh, I laughed. The restauranteur from San Francisco (Anthony maybe? The role that was shared by two men)... I’m going to have to drive up to SF to find him and ask him to read me the phone book. Ohhh, that voice. When they brought in the former drama teacher for Anything Goes, he looked frail, but either that was just a moment of unsteadiness, or he really absorbed their energy. He looked stronger each day. I loved seeing the joy and love between the teachers and former students in all of the episodes. My favorite was the Anything Goes episode. A bunch of amazing voices, a lot of joy and friendship. I watched Lady Marmalade twice (the woman singing the words “Creole Lady Marmalade “ slayed me!) and the performance twice, too. I laughed so hard at Kenny’s “That’s a lot of stuff” comment. They had such fun. During the Oklahoma episode, when they kept talking about the Lindahls and showing the Lindahl Theatre, I thought, “Lindahl, Lindahl...there was a Matt Lindahl on Nashville Star who was really good. He looks like them. I bet he’s related. Yep! There he is, supporting his sister.” My sisters were all involved with musical productions In high school, and I looked forward to the same (as not-cast — can’t sing at all). Their high school closed so I ended up at a different high school, one known for its really great musicals and a fantastic teacher leading them. They took so much of his time that (gossip was) his wife threatened to divorce him if he did any more. So my freshman year... new drama teacher, and The Crucible. Sad trombone. No theatre for me.
  9. Just rewatched, and I think I laughed even harder at Max repeatedly breaking into song, and Zoey’s frustration. Andrew Leeds during Goodnight My Angel. Perfection.
  10. I’m really surprised to read the takes on the Max/Zoey “I’ve been offered a promotion” end. I just watched (but can’t rewatch to check because I watched online), but wasn't she speaking last as the Zoey who sang I’m Yours and that Zoey encouraged him “to go after what you want”? I felt that also meant pursuing her, too. Wasn’t that scene after she told Simon she was done with him? I felt like the direction Skylar was given was “react in a way that could look encouraged or annoyed.” i recently read a book by Harben Girma about growing up deafblind (she went to Harvard Law and also volunteered in Africa), and I wanted to make Howie read it. 😄
  11. I cannot figure out who Kenny (Kelly’s guy) looks like. Not sure if it’s someone famous or someone I knew.
  12. If I were the guy who's engaged to Giannina, I'd have called it off the second time she grabbed and shoved my face. She's too young and freespirited to be taking the engagement seriously. Which is a bummer, because he seems serious about it. Lauren and her guy (dang, I am bad at the guys' names!) -- if I could find a man who looks at me the way he looks at her... sigh. I like Kenny and Kelly as a couple. They seem to fit well. Though aside from that 'alone' convo, most of what we heard from her was "good, good."
  13. I was just coming to post that the last thing Jason said made me choke up a bit.
  14. Saw Wicked (Munchkin cast), and Amy Yakima and Jordan Cassanova were in the ensemble. Amy also played Elphaba’s mother.
  15. I noticed the highlighting, too, and had wished I had paid more attention to what the clue had said about where the items would be found in comparison to where they were looking. Chris and Bret mentioned when they got there that the water was cold, then later how “once they had warmed up” at the poetry task they realized they shouldn’t have switched and went back. So being cold for hours probably contributed to their decision and brain power.
