  1. It turns out all they need to do to turn me into a snot-covered , ugly-crying mess is put Sami, Lucas and Will in a small room together.
  2. When the writers get it right, there's a believable (and angsty) balance of love, frustration and pain in Will for his parents. He's never not going to love them -- he can't help but love them. That's why the storylines about how Will suddenly hated his mother -- or, conversely, overnight became a schemer (just like his mother!) -- never worked for me: they depended on a serious misreading of the conflicts that drive Will -- of his nature, in fact. Maybe Adrienne and Justin were getting pedicu -- uh, visiting Alex?
  3. Well, yes; but a poorly-acted smirking, sleazy bore over a poorly-acted scumbag who is irrationally praised to the skies is kind of a gimme. Can't they find actors whose dramatic gifts extend beyond taking off a shirt? I guess I'm picky. I did love Kate's meta-commentary about how few people stay dead in Salem. Poor Ari! "Ice cream? Why?? Is somebody else gonna die?! Waah!"
  4. You mean "... if he were unconscious," right, Maggie? Because, otherwise: yyyyeah, no. I'm alone in thinking that Xander's actually really boring, I think. Telfer's a poor actor, and Non-Nicole is not the way to make the character more interesting. Maggie would have to be still drinking to defend Xander to anyone.
  5. Maybe Bonehead Black's stupidity is of viral origin, and everyone who comes near him gets some kind of contact idiocy? I got my medical degree at Salem U, why do you ask?
  6. Oh, for the love of Mike! Can't someone boil that woman's ashes in a vat of acid and be DONE? I'm going to guess "Yelling."

    Blood & Treasure

    I think the soundtrack actually quoted a Raiders of the Lost Ark theme in the 1942 sequence. On the whole, I'd still rather have Deception back.

    Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018)

    Is it super-wrong (or only a little bit wrong) that I kind of want them to be friends for real now?

    S06.E16: Cinco de Mayo

    I'm a little scared of Kevin, to be honest, after "You're right, Raymond: these heists are fun." I was sold the minute Holt scoffed at people not knowing who the assistant principal violist of the New York Philharmonic was. The perfectly executed little snort at "Okay," pretty much undid me. (Also Rosa's epic sour face accompanying her thumbs-down on the "treacly" proposal by way of the last heist.) "Did you two give each other any gifts this year that did NOT involve tasers?" Amy and Jake [guiltily]: "No."

    S06.E15: Return of the King

    Maybe Season 1? I think the episode said more about the vacuousness of Internet fame than about Gina's worth, inane creep that she is, but Jake's unswerving loyalty is puzzling, to say the least.

    Weirdest cold open ever. Something else that's weird? It occurs to me only now that Rosa might actually be as awesome as Gina keeps insisting she is.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    This is now officially my headcanon. Ain't nobody can tell me it happened any other way.

    Wait -- didn't I see the Lady Sif?

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Still works. I saw it this morning, and in lieu of formulating anything like a more coherent comment, now I'm just going to sit here and hyperventilate for a while.

    S06.E13: The Bimbo

    Why do I hear Terry in my head saying "Terry has a glow"?
