  1. Wasn't there a throwaway line in one of the early episodes about all the "teens" in Riverdale actually being actors in their 30s? I spent the first season wondering if that was some sort of meta line explaining why the actor cast as Paxton is obviously not in his teens anymore. He's a handsome man, but he doesn't look like a teenager.
  2. I get a feeling the producers are trying to make the outcome (winning couple) less obvious this season to build the audience. They may be encouraging Cash to start some friction due to her on-line popularity. The Olympics are supposedly going to start this Friday (unless Covid shuts everything down), so it may be CBS's last big push for ratings.
  3. The Oregonian's article about the finale. https://www.oregonlive.com/entertainment/2021/07/top-chef-portland-names-a-winner-but-controversy-casts-a-shadow-over-a-feel-good-season-recap.html
  4. Here's another feature story from The Oregonian. https://www.oregonlive.com/entertainment/2021/06/with-top-chef-portlands-finale-nearing-locals-wonder-can-the-show-help-repair-the-citys-image.html As an Oregonian, the only disappointment I have is that Top Chef didn't go a little farther south. Bandon is a beautiful area (and I'm certain the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort would have been thrilled to have a visit from the production).
  5. I think it would be interesting for Maggie and Howie to bump into each other and reminisce about Mitch a little...maybe over a few nice dinners at Maximo's.
  6. I'm beginning to wonder if The Oregonian is signaling who is eliminated each week. At least this week and last, their feature story has focused on the chef who gets eliminated. A nice feature story about Sara was in Wednesday's edition. https://www.oregonlive.com/tv/2021/05/top-chef-portlands-sara-hauman-on-self-confidence-yogurt-and-the-importance-of-little-fish.html I thought the set-up for chef's table wasn't really great for the introverts on the Penny team.

  8. Why not set up TAR USA with visits to national parks?
  9. There was also a feature story about Gabriel in yesterday's Oregonlive (The Oregonian newspaper on-line edition). It could be timely if Gabriel was indeed eliminated. https://www.oregonlive.com/entertainment/2021/05/top-chef-portland-contestant-gabriel-pascuzzi-says-the-show-will-help-boost-the-citys-image.html
  10. https://www.oregonlive.com/entertainment/2021/05/top-chef-portland-contestant-gabriel-pascuzzi-says-the-show-will-help-boost-the-citys-image.html Feature story about this season's "villain", Gabriel.
  11. Feature story from The Oregonian about Thursday's episode. https://www.oregonlive.com/entertainment/2021/05/what-was-it-like-at-the-top-chef-portland-drive-in-rain-a-scary-corndog-a-fogged-up-windshield-and-more.html
  12. Maybe something happens to Max's dad, and he has to go to NY to help his family.
  13. I was wondering why no one was commenting on that beautiful dog. Tom mentioned that he and his dog stayed in a Airbnb. By the way, Oregonlive often has day after feature stories about Top Chef Portland. (That's where I think I may have read about Tom's dog.) https://www.oregonlive.com/
  14. Anyone watch Romeo and Juliet on Great Performances? I know it's getting rave reviews, but I missed a lot of the language. What was left seemed particularly dark and depressing. Romeo and Juliet is a romantic comedy until act three. I missed those lighter moments. I also couldn't get past the memory of Josh O'Connor's Prince Charles to accept him as Romeo. Because so many of Mercutio's lines were cut, I didn't get a sense of the friendship/relationship between him and Romeo. In this version, it would have made more sense for Benvolio to kill Tybalt.
  15. The worst wildfires in Oregon started all over the state on Labor Day. I thought it looked a little like Oregon fog when they got back to Portland, but it could have been smoke. (Actually, according to this article, it probably was a bit of wildfire smoke). https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/when-top-chef-portland-filmed-season-18-cast-crew.html/ "I got to Portland Aug. 30. Everybody had to quarantine for 10 days (before) we began filming, anywhere between 15- and 18-hour days, waking up very early in the morning to get COVID-tested. We all had our own individual rooms —
