  1. I am going to have to disagree with your interpretation. David had figured out what is going on from the moment he finds the champagne in the backpack so he is already processing and preparing for the moment. I think Dan Levy was perfect in this scene but each to their own.
  2. I'm glad they are wrapping it up on their own terms, NBC have given them space to execute their vision and aren't demanding endless seasons beyond what the concept can sustain. It is a great outcome as much as I will miss it.
  3. Teri Hatcher, it is a testament to my love for Felicity Huffman (at least until about 10 days ago) and Dana Delany in the middle of its run that I got through eight seasons of Desperate Housewives.
  4. I adore The Sopranos finale. The fact that my sister and I still occasionally discuss what the likely outcome was tells you that it was effective and memorable. The Cheers finale is excellent. I like the little callbacks to the pilot and the life goes on aspects of it. I am still hugely bitter about HIMYM. They are screening the final season here on cable again at the moment and I am so mad at it. Cristin Milioti and Josh Radnor have such amazing chemistry and the mother/Traci is the best character that show produced. She deserved better than Ted.
  5. A question for the Maui Moisture fans. Priceline (which in Australia are a pharmacy chain for clarification) have started stocking it and I wanna try. I’m using CPR’s Frizzy range right now and I’m not 100% happy, sometimes it leaves a film on my hair which I don’t like at all. My question is does anyone using it have coarse, wavy/curly, treated hair? If so which formula are you using (a bottle of shampoo and conditioner will be $AU40, comparable to the CPR so I want to make sure I’m getting the best formula for my hair).

    Lady Bird (2017)

    I adored this movie. I graduated a year ahead of Christine/Ladybird (and in Australia) but other than that so much of our lives were similar, I am Catholic educated (all-girls though), I grew up in a family that had just begun to gain a bit of ground socioeconomically at the time I graduated high school (we moved out of our starter home at the start of 11th grade) but related deeply to having parents who were really having to work hard for not very much (legit, my dad is a psych nurse) and were trying to give their children the best lives possible, even when said children were pretty ungratefu
  7. RIP Stephen Hawking. As a young person in the sciences with a disability, he was incredibly personally important to me.
  8. I totally agree. I have two sets of friends who have 'rescued' the teenage boyfriends of their children from horrible home lives, one of which has done it with two different boys (they had the first boy with them for about three years, at which point the daughter and the boy broke up but he was an adult by that stage and had benefited hugely from the years of stability he was provided, this was about three years ago and I am still friends with him on Facebook, he is doing really well. Their daughter, who is now in her early 20s has a child with the second boy and they are both at home at the m

    What Did We Eat Today?

    Japchae (Korean sweet potato starch noodles) with beef, carrot, bell pepper, spring onion/scallion and a maple, soya sesame sauce. Delicious!
  10. I saw Beautiful at the Lyric Theatre in Sydney in early February. It was a highly enjoyable show and the lead actress, Esther Hannaford was incredible. However, theatre audiences, especially for musicals in Sydney are the worst. I live in Melbourne and I usually see shows in Melbourne, which is the biggest theatre city in Australia. Audiences in Melbourne are typically pretty well-behaved but in Sydney, oh boy. At Beautiful, a group of approximately five middle-aged women sitting behind us talked through the whole show and continued to do so even after an usher, following several complaints ca
  11. Another thing I really appreciate about Roseanne is the frequent hairstyle changes Roseanne, Jackie, and Becky, in particular, go through over the course of the show. It is a weird thing to admire but it really adds to the realism of the show for me. People change hairstyles quite frequently in real life but on TV almost everyone has the same hair all the time. My favorite example of this is Jackie and her bangs. I have bangs but my hair also grows like a weed so for the last two-three weeks of my six-week hairdressing cycle they are too long to wear down. I also have naturally curly hair and
  12. I love the opening credits! Roseanne wearing the Chicken sweater and the sweater Jackie is wearing is seriously nostalgic.
  13. I've been doing a rewatch in preparation for the new episodes and damn, this show from the last 1/3 of season 1 through to the end season 7 is one of the best depictions of working-class life to have ever appeared on television. I think the first 2/3 of season 1 is weaker because Roseanne Barr is essentially learning how to act on the fly and her performance is much less nuanced. Season 8 is patchier and the less said about season 9 the better but both still have their moments. I was in primary school and early high school (I'm Australian, primary school = K-6, high school = 7-12, at lea

  15. Oh Thorgy how you disappointed me. I really enjoyed Thorgy the first time, I am always into the more alternative queens but this time her persecution complex was just too much. Also I have been waiting for someone to do Stevie Nicks since the start of RPDR and I was so excited when Thorgy got to to do her but it was just so meh. Stevie is someone who I adore and someone you could potentially have a lot of fun with especially early-mid 80s coked up Stevie or by playing up the witchy aspects of her persona but Thorgy played it so safe. The material she was given was not great but so much more c
