I read the book when it first came out and, although it didn't occur to me at the time, now I think Liane Moriarty must have written the character Frances with Melissa McCarthy in mind because she's perfect in the role.
Shane has spent this entire honeymoon obsessing over getting the wrong room and paying little attention to his wife but he doesn't want her working because it would take time away from him? He is a typical controlling asshole.
Was there any explanation as to how he transported all 3 of them from the back of his truck to that bunker beneath a trap door in what looks like a barn? (I admit, I wasn't paying 100% attention so perhaps they did explain it.)
I bought this one also - not only does it have mature adults as leads (and it's implied that they have sex Christmas morning) but it also stars an insanely talented 7 year-old Hayden Panettiere. I watch it every year, sometimes more than once.
This could have been one of my favorite seasons if it weren't for that damn alliance nonsense. And like many of you, I hope the blondes get invited back - they were one of the most likeable teams that's ever been on TAR and they got screwed. TAR really needs to find a way to ban alliances. They only make sense on shows where you can get voted off - they make no sense when your goal is to beat EVERY other team to the pit stop.
I'm an old White woman and I've always considered myself to be super liberal but I'm telling you the whole George Floyd thing was a wake up call for me. I had more honest conversations with my African-American friends than I'd ever had before. If it affected me this way, I can only imagine how it would affect a Black adult male who had been raised in a White family. I thought the show did a pretty good job addressing it from Randall's viewpoint.
