  1. I actually enjoyed the second episode. It was slightly different than most episodes. I mean the Adam stuff. The Barry and Erica plot has been done 57 times already. But the Adam thing was a new take on him and I liked it. As a die hard Airplane fan I was sorely disappointed with the first episode. The Goonies episode is my all time favorite one and that is how you do a take on a film. This was lame.
  2. Did we ever see plague doctor ghost before episode 8? He would have been great to pop up for a scare here and there. And I wish we had seen other ghosts. Like the soldier we glimpsed once. Henry even mentioned having an imaginary soldier friend so I assume that’s who it was. But no payoff.
  3. I’m not disliking this. I like Owen and Hannah a lot. I think the issue is that it feels like I’ve seen this story before. Hill House was an old story too but they did new things with it. So far, Bly seems pretty same old same old. Ghost watch alert. Saw someone in a military uniform in the kitchen during the Peter/Rebecca scene.
  4. I didn't really get the yoga instructor exchange. Was it just a nod to the stereotype of them being flighty because while I can see that, I still think they know yoga and what it's about. It was just a weird scene. In fact, this whole episode was weird scenes, with the principal stuff and the scene changes (which I liked). It's like they had some random ideas for scenes and cobbled them together here. But, thinking about it, that may just be the Family Guy MO now anyway and I just noticed it because it's been awhile since I've seen a new episode.
  5. I forgot Hank wasn't doing Carl anymore, so kept wondering if he was sick or something because Carl sounded slightly off. Then I remembered the new casting and it made sense. It was pretty good and I'll get used to it. I don't really know David Harbour's voice, but for some reason I knew it was him playing Fred. Maybe because Fred looked a bit like him. Loved all the Iron Man associations. I did enjoy this episode. It gave the secondary characters a chance to shine and there were some good callbacks. Solid start to Season 32.
  6. Late to the party but just watched the last episode and man it was good! I teared up a few times this last season. Shadow Weaver's death got me more than I thought it would even if she was a terrible person. Her telling Catra she was proud of her was perfect. And then the kiss! It was amazing how basically everyone ended up on the side of good - even Hordak. I thought it was a good ending but still left open the possibility of more. And I assumed Bow and Glimmer were a thing based on the future vision (which I guess could not have been real) but I'm open to whatever. The only pairing I wasn't really a fan of was Mermista/Sea Hawk. They both amused me independently, but I didn't feel the chemistry. My favorite character was probably Scorpia. She had the coolest character arc to me and evolved so well. My reference for Lauren Ash is Superstore, so it was great to see a softer side to the character, which I didn't think would happen early on.
  7. I know I’ve harped on this before but this Bev is worried about Adam growing up is so done to death. I feel this was already done this season which is the height of lazy. This show is just bad now and I loved it so much early on.
  8. I've read some stories that she actually wasn't prevented from sitting. They shoved her back against the wall, but she got to be there. I get the point of that scene but knowing that bothered me. They could've still gotten across the point with the truth because she was still treated terribly. I guess I'm in the minority, but I liked Jim Parsons in this. I'm not even a fan of his, but I thought he did some good work with the lackluster writing. The turn around for his character was a bit jarring but I thought he did really well in the last scene with Rock. You could actually see his humanity. I can't imagine another season unless they just do a totally different decade or something. Maybe keep the same cast in different roles. They need to rethink the younger actors though. I like Samara Weaving in other things (Ready or Not is amazing) but she was so blah and Darren Criss was so bland he blended into the wallpaper most of the time. I think a large part was the writing for them but the older actors got crap writing and made it work.
  9. Yeah the dream was weird. Why would Bow dream about her mom and grandfather talking at work? I thought it was a good opportunity for the characters to have some fun but they didn't take advantage of it.
  10. They specifically said the Hayes code didn’t allow interracial couples so curious to see how that goes. Even if it’s an alternate timeline, it’s still a product of the time. Rob Reiner was great in his small role and once again I care more about the older set. The Mira Sorvino/Patti LiPone scene was good. As was the casting scene. Can’t wait to see if Jim Parsons leaks those photos. I read in real life Rock Hudson needed 37 takes to get through his one line in his first film. So this tracks. Wonder where his story will go since he didn’t get the part.
  11. I think most everyone associated with Ace Studios is made up. Jim Parsons just got his Emmy submittal here. I find myself caring more about the older characters than the younger ones. I’d rather watch Joe Mantello and Holland Taylor verbally spar all day than some of the other stories. Although I like Archie a lot. But I don’t really care about Jack or Claire and even Darris Criss is kinda boring. It’s early though.
  12. If anyone is into podcasts the show Mobituaries hosted by Mo Rocca has a great episode about Anna Mae Wong. The dialogue is so stilted. I assume it is intentional to mimic the way movies were done as an homage or something. I need a couple more episodes before I really judge.
  13. Agreed with most of what people are saying. The fact is Jonny was much more "mainstream" and his items will sell better on Amazon. It's odd to me that the Making the Cut store is gone from the site. It's like the other designers have been wiped away. I think they could easily make money if they continue selling some of the other winning looks. But I guess they are all into Jonny. Although it is nice that Ester has some looks available too. Should this show come back, they need to rework some things. I like the music but too much focus on it. They really need to highlight the clothes more. I feel like they took a back seat to the "look" of the show and that was not a good thing. We come to see the fashion, not the camera angles. And I think Joseph Altazurra is cute but he looked so tiny standing in that group with the ladies.
  14. In the last episode, Rose talks to Sophia about moving in with Kirsten. And Dorothy's money issues always annoyed me. One episode, she has $1200 to pay for Sophia to go to Sicily or pay for one of the many trips they took, the next she can't scrape together a couple thousand to pay off taxes. I know money situations change over time, but it seems like she had money issues only when the story needed it.
  15. Bryan Callum was also an (I think) original cast member of MadTV. His pool boy in the Dixie Wentworth sketches was....titillating(?) I did like the mean girl clique but CB is never going to be a good Principal. He's too nice and I don't think he can really make the hard decisions.
