  1. The unofficial theme of this season is “What the Hell happened to Kate?” I go from being mildly amused to somewhat concerned when I see her. Was she really shopping at the dollar store for her hoedown? There is nothing wrong with the dollar store but Katie is supposedly from money. Speaking of dollar store... we now know where she got those wigs. As a lot of posters have pointed out, this show really suffers from being off the air too long. We all know that but that buttgate happened a long time ago and Ashley has doubled down on her marriage ( fake or real) to the Wizard of Oz with a baby. Ashley’s been poor and there is no way in Hell she is going to lose her wallet. Candiass really just does want only yes men and sycophants as her friends. Girl, you are turning into your momma’s mini me.

    S.09 E.05: Paradise Lost?

    You might be right. From what I learned from Jaimie and Big Red is that people actually lie to get on this third rate reality show. I think even last season Kate lied about her smoking. Matt probably lied or made it seem like he was open to dating a shorter woman when he was not. That’s kinda on him if he lied but I am not sure if he did. In all fairness, a 5’2” woman probably seems like a giant to Dr. Pepper. I think Amber’s 80k salary probably includes the money she is getting for the show. I have no clue what they get paid but there had been speculation that it is in the 20-25k range. The grooms might even get higher since they are harder to come by. There has also been talk about a bonus if they say yes on decision day and stay together for about a month. So, let’s speculate that they are both getting around 40-50k combined for the show. This will be added to the probably around 50k she gets from teaching. Amber did not talk about what they are getting from the show on camera but she is probably implying that it’s enough for him to start a business and not have to go overseas for a basketball contract, at least for the first year. Matt got angry off camera because : 1. It took away his get out of jail free card, that was his go to exit strategy for getting out of an unwanted marriage without looking like the bad guy. 2. It kind of reveals, in front of the crew, that he has no income besides what is coming from the show. I have officially put way too much thought into this stupidity.

    His BDE turned off Molly but did draw in Dr. Blondie. I hope he was worth losing what was for her a pretty sweet and lucrative gig.

    Years and Years

    I am having a hard time liking the Lyons family and not in a complex well written character type of way. They are all very annoying and really not likable. I wanted to slap that daughter for being so stupid and I did not like how her friend casually announced she could pay for her surgery.

    S06.E05: The Kill

    It was hard for me to see those beautiful animals killed as well. It hit me that Alone has really not been a gory show because most people have had so little success getting any real game in the previous seasons. The Moose guy will let us test out the theory of whether or not bagging one large source of animal protein basically wins the prize. It feels more satisfying than “fattest one wins”.

    Best episode ever. What we thought would never happen actually happened.

    The thing about this is I remember them asking Matt specifically about the height difference and as he had dated a 5’2” woman in the past and I think he okayed it. It was similar to how they asked Ricky Bobby If he was okay with his wife being older than him. I could be remembering this wrong. Sadly, I actually do not think it’s her height. He’s just not into her and the height does not help and serves as a convenient excuse. I have a feeling if she was a bit more of a bombshell and less cute and sporty, he would not have a problem with her height at all. This does not make him a bad guy but it really does set Amber up for hurt. If you are named Amber, do not go in this show. This is the second Amber that is probably going to get her heart broken by a tall doofus.

    What did he say about Amber on unfiltered? On the wedding day did he have the typical “she’s beautiful” response that every groom has had on this show since season 1 (maybe with the exception of Luke). I just don’t remember his wedding day reaction.

    Their old house and neighborhood was really lovely.

    I really hate her extensions with the lowlights around her face. It’s a little too Carrie.
  11. Ashley has a banging body but damn that performance was embarrassing. She could of at least done some cute choreography. I am glad Kangaroo Jack was not at Virginia pride to sexually harass the men in the in his quest for dick. Why is Ashley mad at Robyn when Giselle is the one throwing all the shit on the table. Usually educated professional African Americans have high expectations for their children. Candiass is a bit of a failure in this respect. Dorothy, this show is going to ruin you professionally. Pretty soon you won’t be able to pay anyone’s mortgage including your own. Dorothy is vile as hell. However, I’ve noticed that Candiass waited for the checks to clear on the wedding before she brought all these issues up. Ashley not leaving Candiass’s house is a testament to how hungry she was for Chris’s food. White Chris married for the come up and he might have to earn every penny. Katie saying that dick sucking might be how you say hello in Australian is amazing. I might like her better high.

    Mad Men

    I always wondered how a woman like Joan did not end up being married to a rich guy and queen of some social circle. Joan knows the “rules” and back then a woman was kind of entertaining old made territory if she was not married by 25. I went to college in the early aughts. We watched an anthropology movie about marriage that was filmed in 1981. The narrator kept on going on about how the most educated of all the brides was getting married at such an advanced age...she was all of 24. I know Joan secretly loved to work and wanted to be loved for more than her beautiful appearance. She chides Peggy for looking frumpy but she really wasted her prime years having an affair with Roger, who at that time only considered her a little more than a sex doll. I think he called her something like the best piece of ass he ever had when he was at the hospital and she seemed honestly hurt by his comments. For a woman who follows the rules of the old world, it really was not smart. I am glad she ended up financially independent but hated the way she got her partnership stake. I always thought the episode at Bobby’s camp was really Betty at her prime. She had lost the “fat Betty” weight and was back to being her beautiful old self as evidenced by the gas station attendant almost drooling over her. She was coming into her own being the socialite and politician’s wife she was born to be. Betty hated being middle class and now she was back in the upper rung. She also understood that Don Draper was fine for a roll in the sack but hell to be married to. She honestly probably did feel sorry for Megan at this point.

    I think Pete must have seemed incredibly posh and preppy to a Peggy who was just starting to shed her good little frumpy blue collar Catholic school roots for something more exciting, Plus Peggy was entering a man’s world and the men around her had no problem venting their sexual energies without any moral repercussions. It also did not hurt that young Pete was pretty cute. I think on this show cheating was the default, which has not been my experience in real life Even Betty cheated with Don on Henry when they were visiting Bobby at Summer Camp.

    Don’s go to in life has always been to run away rather than self examine. A better wife would solve all his problems and the only thing that was his fault was the big lie. Megan is better than Betty and he will be honest about Dick Whitman. When his second marriage failed and Anna’s niece refused to be her aunt’s replacement he realized there was no longer anywhere to flee.

    Mad Men

    The only people that seem impressed are her sycophant acting friends who probably want to use Megan a little now that she is connected to money and an important advertising firm that often cast actors for their commercials. Remember, to the outside world Don Draper is a rich amazingly handsome man that all women want and all men want to be. Even when he was low after his divorce, he was still considered a prize catch. At this moment she is kind of basking in the glow of reeling in a prize catch and not realizing that she is coming off a little pathetic. Of course later she learns how damaged Don is and he is far from a prize. When later she says “little Dick Whitman never had a birthday party” she has no idea how horrible she sounds. The party itself is a fantastic disaster. The twittering over Don turning forty (the horror!) to claiming that everyone has sex after her parties in the most unsexiest voice imaginable and finally the last insult, awakening the lust of Harry Crane. Harry probably always had a thing for Megan but probably would not dare express it so openly. Harry is an idiot and feels now he can be openly pervy because Megan did a sexy dance. It is also interesting that later in the series Megan hits her rock bottom when she agrees to have lunch with him for professional reasons only to have him proposition her. It’s right before she takes the million dollar check from Don.
