    S03.E10: Finna

    Okay, thank you. I didn't realize that cop was working for the Professor and thought Arlene was still trying to take down Ann/crew. I know Ann found out that Arlene died but didn't know whether the cops found out yet. I guess it just got swept under the rug because of the Triad's involvement.

    While I expect loose ends on this show, I was hoping to get an idea of Arlene's situation. When Ann went looking for Arlene at the precinct, another woman cop said that Ann was undercover. The cops couldn't have known that Arlene was dead yet and they made up the story to Ann. I wonder if Arlene was still undercover after all, and working to take down Ann and the crew. And the other cops all knew about it and had a cover story ready in case Ann ever went there. I'm kinda glad there was nothing with EJ because I didn't care for that part of the story. I really enjoy this show and hope it comes back next summer!

    Good Witch

    I really enjoy this show (I also like the Hallmark and HMM movies). While I agree they've watered down the magic, it does seem like Cassie has strong premonitions and uses them to help the people in her town. It's like she knows what's going to happen and then nudges people into the best possible outcome for each individual. I'd love to be able to do that for my friends and loved ones. I also like her little sayings, they have a weight to them that I try to apply in my own life day to day. One example is when she was telling Martha to focus on who she wants to be instead of focusing on the person who wronged her. Great life advice!

    S03.E04: Say Yes

    While the sex scene with Bash and Rhonda was short and we didn't see much of his face, right afterwards Bash was so elated. He was in a much better mood, talking about how he loved everything including his wife. That, to me, seemed a stereotypical portrayal of a man who just had a fulfilling sexual encounter. So it seemed like he enjoyed sex with a woman. It is interesting that Bobby assumed Bash was gay, and then Bobby shared his own experience of having a son with a (ex?) wife who he said was a dear friend. I could see Bash going in the same direction, being good friends with Rhonda and possibly procreating even if he might also enjoy sex with men. Doesn't seem like he's tried it yet. Not very interested in Ruth's love life, but I really enjoyed Bobby. I love his face and his acting. Wouldn't mind if he was in all of the remaining episodes.

    S04.E03: Man vs Rock

    I'm enjoying the show still, and I like seeing young Smurf. I'm fascinated by her past and how she got where she is today, as well as seeing the men in her life when she was younger. I feel it breaks up the current plots nicely and it's cool to see the connections between past and present. With the fisherman scene, what I took from that was Smurf reconfirming to herself that men (I'd say people, but I think Smurf has a different vision of men than women) will do anything for money even if it's cruel, and also that she is still an effective manipulator. At first when the fish was suffering, the fisherman was going to stun it so it wouldn't suffer. But she made it clear that he was getting the money for allowing the fish to suffer and die while he just stood by and did nothing. And so he did, he took the money and did nothing. I wonder if he'd refused the money, stunned the fish, or anything else maybe she would have felt less in control of things, but it reconfirmed her manipulative effectiveness and her way of life. YMMV.

    The Masked Singer

    I hadn't heard she was having health problems, I hope she's okay. I've seen plenty of performers in that age group on tour recently so it didn't seem out of the question, plus it just sounded so much like her to me. I'm certainly enjoying the intrigue of this show! Fun to guess and see other people's guesses.

    The Masked Singer

    I completely agree, it is absolutely, 100% Tina Turner.

    Lethal Weapon

    I also enjoyed the latest episode. Cole is wonderful and I like the whole cast. It was funny and entertaining for the entire hour.

    The Masked Singer

    So glad to see this topic here! I was hoping it would be added. I enjoyed the first show. It's fun and light entertainment. I thought the performances themselves were pretty high quality with all the background dancers and props on the stage. Nick Cannon is a great host. He looks so different with the long hair. Interesting to see who each performer is and I'm looking forward to this week's show. The judges seem to be having fun and getting along, which is nice.

    S02 Ep 05 Carrots

    I had a different take on the Park story. To me the question was not about forgiveness, but rather about whether it's better to lie or be truthful about everything in a marriage. At first, Park's opinion was that it's better to always be truthful. That's why he let it slip to the husband about the actual procedure being performed. But when the husband did find out everything he said he wished he didn't know. So that made Park wonder what would have happened if Park himself never knew about his wife cheating. Maybe they'd still be happily married, and maybe it is better to lie and keep secrets sometimes. That was the question as I saw it. Unpopular opinion here, but I'm enjoying this story (and Glassman's too, go figure). To me this is about people connecting with each other whether romantically or not. Relationships are complicated and can be confusing, but human connections are important for a fulfilling life. These two lonely people will now have someone to come home to. They enjoy each other's company and want to spend time together. I don't see it as a bad thing. Totally agree that neither of them is perfect but then who is? If they can live in this nice apartment together and help each other that way and with regards to emotional support, why not try it. Mileage varies, of course. but that's how I see it.

    S01.E04: Boundaries

    As someone who was briefly married to an Adderall addict, it is extremely easy to get from a doctor. He had his doctor completely fooled and went through a month's worth of medication in less than a week, repeatedly. I met with his doctor to report this but if I hadn't it would have continued. It did result in psychosis and it was a horrible experience. If I had to guess I would say he probably found a new doctor and is getting it prescribed again. IMO, it should not be repeatedly prescribed without checking with loved ones to ensure it's not being misused. I'm hoping for a resolution to this issue in the show and that it is handled properly.

    Season 1 Discussion

    As someone who is not at all into football but loved FNL, I thought this was pretty good! I'm in.

    S01.E03: Every Last Minute

    I'm enjoying Ryan Eggold. Don't think I've seen him before and I really like how much he emotes with his face and eyes. I'd cave for those puppy dog eyes too!

    S11.E02: I (Don't) Heart Huckabee

    Mileage clearly varies, but for me I have friends who I've known for well over 10 years who act pretty much the same way they did when we met. I have a friend who is a womanizer and, no surprise, he is still single and still looking for women. If he changed his ways, he'd probably be married by now. Not everyone changes that drastically in 10 or even 20 years. I know people who act just as they did in high school! Another way to think about it is, perhaps they haven't 'grown' because they haven't been on TV. Now that they're back on TV, we can potentially observe their growth and changes instead of getting totally new characters right off the bat. I'm enjoying it so far and will keep watching. Admittedly I have a pretty 'low' bar when it comes to TV (according to popular opinion). My favorite shows are on Hallmark or are similar to the old Early Edition with Kyle Chandler.

    Take Two

    The show is growing on me. At first I didn't really like it and it didn't keep my interest, but this episode was pretty enjoyable. Definitely my favorite of the series so far.
