    S.09 E.05: Paradise Lost?

    Perhaps Amber thought that offering financial support to her lawfully-wedded HUSBAND wasn't being hasty. Big Red's "vagina" joke was typical of a Drama Queen: HYPERBOLE for humor!

    S07.E08: Miss Understood

    I took "She's no Moriarty" the same way as you. Moreover, the show subtly underscored her claim to being Sherlock's daughter by having him act rather paternally at the end. I just happen to disagree with this particular characterization premise.

    OMGee, Yeah No! Now we have TWO new merchandise offerings! For the confident man: Our latest T-shirt in MAFS Noir, with a centered embroidery in Cautionary Amber and Magneto font---BDE. And for the sassy lassie: Our new hybrid handbag, incorporating an infamous saying from Big Angela's Michael of "90 Day Fiance"! The Navy Blue purse will have embroidered on the front in Virginal White---"He Had BDE, So...." And on the reverse, in Hot Pink---"I Did the BJ!" Ordering and shipping details forthcoming.

    I can see a younger Jonny Lee Miller's joining the Mile-High Club, but not a younger Sherlock Holmes. At least, not without certain precautions. Another jarring note, to me: When Sherlock flippantly invoked the hallowed name of "The Woman" in his referring to Cassie with a smirky "She's no Moriarty." I thought for sure at the end Holmes was about to hand Cassie one of those DNA testing forms. But no, the show went for an inauthentic "Let's pick out names!" pseudo-father-daughter "moment." Clearly, the ostensible main plot about "baby formula" was inconsequential.

    I think Big Red is fake up top, but only with her hair color. 😉

    Previous posters have already confirmed similar and even higher teacher salaries. As for when teachers work vs salary: Consider the summer as make-up for all the prior overtime, including week-ends. TIA. (Disclosure: Retired English teacher here.)

    Jamie didn't say he was in love with Easy E. He blurted out, "I love you." And Miss Drama Queen (I belong to her tribe, heh) is misjudging Jamie. He's an Ignorer, not a Caterer (we really try for Worshipper, but any port in a storm!), and thus she is going to be frustrated trying to get his attention by "You didn't look for me!" or "You didn't care I was seasick!" Jamie doesn't seem to be the Always Affirming type. Matt, Matt, Matt. A newlywed already checking his options. He was mad, not humiliated, because Amber's "Supporting Salary" card trumped his "Get Out of Marriage Free" card. Curses, foiled again! Keith and Iris. Two words: "Instagram Careers"! Greg, in the ocean hoping for Costanza Shrinkage. Bwahaha! His religiosity seems a bit more (Read: a lot more) intense than does Deonna's. He waxed while she waned.

    Endeavour

    So there's a Lansbury and Teagarden, eh? Will Season 7 see Endeavour tracking a suspect to St. Mary's Mead? 😉 Loved the showdown between the "City Men" and the actual mason Masons! I wonder if the opening plot was a take on the horrific fires from shoddy building and safety practices at Grenfell Tower public housing, June 2017. As soon as Morse ran the river sand through his fingers, he knew.... deirdra, I assume you refer to an American library? Might you recall what one of those DVD boxes looked like? All the Amazon "Endeavour" ones, even those described as "UK full versions," have "PBS" on the covers.

    Endeavour

    I just have one summarizing word for "Deguello": Brilliant. And exactly how is anyone in the States viewing uncut episodes? On Amazon the UK DVDs are listed as Region 2. It's frustrating to me to read here what I've been denied by PBS. Bitter, table for one.

    S09.E04: Stranger Love in Paradise

    If Jamie said that Big Red is prissy, perhaps he meant in regards to activities we are not privy to. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge! I think that Matt the Tall is into Amber the Short, because having common interests is major. And considering two of Amber's are fitness and Matt,...! 😉 Plus, he talks a good "I'm a lucky guy" game, so I hope he's not a big ole Liar McLiarson!

    Endeavour

    A straight Thursday, IMO, would not go "undercover" to root out rogue cops beyond the one day. He could have taken that money packet straight to Box's superior. What's he waiting for, while drinking in the pub with the guys? There are only the few of them, and more payoffs taken (for "proof") will serve only to make the brass wonder about Thursday. If I'm wrong and Thursday isn't bent, then I'll just have to disagree with the show's character development (See: Final episode, "Game of Thrones"--hahaha!)!

    S07.E07: From Russia with Drugs

    Loandbehold, I did get it (the plot point with the cat). Hence, what I had hoped was my quip!

    S07.E07: From Russia with Drugs

    I found myself bored by this episode. A Russian spy who somehow passed a background check to be a kindergarten teacher and who blows up buildings didn't much pertain to a corrupt corporate plot to literally launder DEA-confiscated drug money. And the NYC Russian Mob as a plot point was done earlier and much better by the Original "L&O" (now, if "Elementary" had done the Russian Mob/NYC construction business nexus....but I digress...😈). Couldn't take the affectless actress playing the aggrieved "I was in a bathing suit in some photos..." detective. WTH was SHE when she's at home, and how did I not notice her alleged significance to the Department lo, all these seasons?! Don't let the door hit ya. Moral of the Story: In the commission of a crime, leave your cat at home.
