    S04.E17: I'm in Love

    I'm okay that she didn't pick anyone but I feel bad for Nathaniel and was rooting for him, so it was fun to see him stand up to his dad and go work at the Zoo. But seriously Greg/Josh both rejected Rebecca several times, so I feel bad that Nathaniel had one last final rejection. Damn I didn't know Scott could look even more attractive, but he looked a little rougher and hotter in the concert footage. I was most happy how consistently funny this finale was. I can't wait to rewatch.
  2. Lord god jesus on the cross, YES. Just admit it Claire/Lady Vander Pump.

    Ha yes that line they had marveling at how SMALL the technology was...I barely had time to laugh before the episode zipped past it, while I was still laughing at it. An easy joke but such a good one.
  4. She totally is, and I am very much a Teddi about punctuality, so I'd have stretched my allowance for lateness at wedding from 20 minutes tops to 40 (though wasn't Cynthia's wedding to Peter on Atlanta HOURS late?), but I would have peaced out especially if I had somewhere else to be. I do think Denise had convinced herself that the women weren't going to come with it so last minute, but I think it's required for them to show up unless they have a really good reason like Kyle? I did love her dad being shady as fuck all, "So...you're late for your own wedding?" Him being so earnest about it is what made it shady. LOL. The stanning for VP is so WILD the Beehive has nothing on her warriors. Miss me with the pity party, the lady manipulates people and why she can't own that shit I will never understand. Especially when the target in this case, Dorit, is so richly deserving of her jujitsu. Try stabbing in the front some times Lady Vander Pump. OTHO I don't know who these women are kidding with this sudden lament that Dorit did NOTHING WRONG, it is so so clear they all thought what she did was wrong and side eyed her giving the dog to a rando who dumped it at a shelter. Denise is the only one who explained *to her face* why what she did was messed up and maybe she could have handled it better. Lisa did to but she was full of shit about forgiving Dorit for it. But they have for sure gotten so righteously worked up about finally "catching" Lisa out they have completely convinced themselves Dorit is innocent of any wrongdoing which...NOOOO.

    I agree the show got too caught up in the plotting instead of just making great jokes at the expense of some assholes from the 80's. The back half in particular was overwhelmed by plot. I thought this episode found it's "funny" feet again and I'm still on board for this group of assholes doing abhorrent things after the crash. I'm sorry we lost a Ken Marino/Lehman brother. How old is too old to bathe together, 45? No limit?

    The Case Against Adnan Syed

    I still can't right this in my mind, but Susan Simpson mentioned that they had told EVERYONE that the they had DNA and it's possible they told Jay they had Adnan's so that helped him feel it was okay for him to frame a guilty person. But LORDT this guy and his epic levels of bullshit, he comes back again with a "new" story I saw her body at my house, I didn't bury her with him, Adnan wanted and could pay for 10 POUNDS of WEED? Sure. Was he just fronting him product to sell based on their very tight friendship? The dude is so full of bullshit. I was glad that the turf guy pointed out even if his tests were inconclusive about the grass might or might not getting brown,, all that grass on the tires couldn't have been there for more than a week. It's really brutal that at this point, with the kind of case Adnan has he might never get a new trial. On In the Dark, involving the Curtis Flowers case, it wsa brought up that Flowers case was only even a potential Supreme Court case because he's on death row and bad convictions cases where the person only gets life almost NEVER get reviewed.

  7. I really love Lisa because she does cook/likes to cook. Too bad all the food at her restaurants is so overpriced and basic. Crispy Chicken? Okay.

    The Case Against Adnan Syed

    Were you high all day? Word. My memory heh is that it's eyewitness testimony is unreliable 80% of the time. Eye witness testimony is mostly garbage, but it's often a huge decider in cases to this very day because no one wants to believe the nature of memory is that shitty. Debbie: I have a photographic memory Also Debbie: I have blocked out everything to do with me flirting with Hae's boyfriend at college after she died. Stephanie was in the program and as they've said they were all reasonably friendly, but she was primarily friends with Adnan and they had dated in eighth grade. She was also close to Laura and Jenn and Kathy through Jay. She, Adnan, and Laura are the ones who straddled the smart kid social cricle and the lets get high all day social circle, but it seems like a lot of the kids smoked some of the time.

    The Case Against Adnan Syed

    Her progression of disease has never really been clear to me, but in the first trial, the jury was polled and was poised to acquit. I think she had a lot of other self inflicted stressors in the second trial too that make it hard to not focus on her negligence. That questioning style alone (DID YOU NOT?) made me aggressively dislike her and I can't imagine the second jury didn't feel the same.
  10. Apologies if this was addressed up thread but my sense was those machines HAVE to have a lot of blood and it takes a lot of time and money to run the tests, her whole angle was nanotech/minaturization of the machines. But like every one with actual engineering and med science tech experience had told her what she wanted to do was not physically possible. But yeah even in needle averse people I don't think they think their fear is this enormous pressing problem in medicine/health care that MUST BE SOLVED. But I'm also in the group who thinks finger sticks hurt way more than the venous draws. The finger stick angle was just for Wallgreens to sell to the patients, and clearly she never gave two thoughts to the patients as the market. I am so glad to hear the uncle story was bs, I kept waiting for Gibney to drop that bomb that he was alive or that she was gilding the lily, but he just kind of left it there. I was so confused why gay Anthony Michael Hall was working for Theranos. I have no doubt this woman is an intentional liar but also that she is deluded enough to not see her lies as lies, and that like the social economist or whatever was right as long as she could tell herself she was doing it for the good of all she could justify doing anything to further that goal, which is why I think she kept going into the breach when the jig was all but up.

    The Case Against Adnan Syed

    This was addressed on camera and in fact it WAS NOT the talk of their circle of friends. Tthey weren't really concerned and weren't talking about it beyond thinking she went to see her dad in California no one outside her family was overly concerned by her disappearance including her best friends like Aisha/Debbie, and as was stated her friends and her family were two bubbles that never intersected. The also had two days off school immediately after she went missing, and then the weekend it wasn't until Krista's party anyone in the that tight knit group of kids started to really worry or think about what might have happened to her.

    The Case Against Adnan Syed

    I'd have to double check, because it's been a while since I did deep timeline studying, but I believe Adnan's story such as it is, is that after school Jay picks him up and they hang out somewhere (Jen's? Kristys?) to smoke pot and then they go their separate ways: Adnan drops Jay at his Grandmother's house, and Adnan/his phone/his car go to the mosque. Man Kristy's pollyanna bullshit comments about how "weird" high Adnan was acting bother me, your girl Jen is a pothead and a weed dealer, her friend Jay? Is a pot head and a weed dealer. Please don't pretend you've never seen someone so high they can't even talk, or had a pot head friend wonder how they can shake or get rid of a high.

    The Case Against Adnan Syed

    I was quoting someone else here I 100% was explaining that Adnan was letting Jay use his car to sell weed, in exchange for..... weed. Which brings me to one thing that always bothers me is even Laura saying "there was no relationship" between Jay/Jen and Adnan. Like c' mon THERE IS A RELATIONSHIP they aren't friends but they're good enough to set this up, Stephanie is Adnan's ex, and if Hae had said no to him he'd have hung out with Steph and Jay a the dance. Just admit they were friends, even if not GOOD friends.

    The Case Against Adnan Syed

    He was driving Adnan's car all day why not blame it on him indeed the person who did may have directed him to blame it on Adnan given he would be a natural suspect (ex boyfriend) under any circumstances. One thing that has been hinted around/speculated with regards to Jay is that he may be a CI. He is related to a significant drug/crime family in West Baltimore, and he traded info from those connections to get out of his many brushes with the law. Now why the cops themselves would rather hang the crime on Adnan then whatever person ACTUALLY did it seems strange, but there are certainly lots of examples of law enforcement making deals with "small time" murderers to get what they perceive to be bigger fish up a chain in drug/racketeering cases. But that is all speculation based off the coy references that Undisclosed tends to make when discussing Jay and "his family" and his stunningly shady deal with Urick. It was supposed to be the same day as the murder Jan 13, but at the end of episode 2 Christy is already questioning if she ever really had the right day. Also AFAIK they don't really know Hae's time of death, which blew my mind. They just had a theory of her time of death not a medical opinion on it, due to finding her body so long after she went missing. Yeah there is a lot about how Adnan says he THINKS his day went : I woulda done this, I definitely did that (the mosque, track) but his phone really didn't support the idea he was ever at the mosque, and Krista was the one who swore she heard him say he was getting a ride with Hae which he firmly denied initially. The very very high young man did himself no favors.

    The Case Against Adnan Syed

    I'm enjoying it because I'm a sucker for anything provides new information or context to this case, but yeah Berg's approach is pretty scattershot, but when I think about the evidence, it's pretty scattershot too. Because, Jay. Jay IS the evidence. When Serial first played out I used to think this was the case, but I think the more likely scenario is that Jay does know who did it/involved but he just threw them Adnan, because the person who killed her is actual scary person who would/will kill him for talking. While I've heard some like Undisclosed argue Jay lied about everything, he'd have to have started that lying all the way to the day Jan 13th when he told Jen Adnan killed Hae. Jen/Jay both know Hae's dead before anyone else IF you believe Jen which I didn't during Serial but seeing her on camera made me believe her testimony. She seems to be earnest and also aggravated that Jay had told her buncha lies to suck her into this. Everyone in the doc is all if only Jay was a lying bag of lies, this could have gone down so differently.
