    S03.E02: Chapter Two: The Mall Rats

    You know the mayor will NEVER say "As you wish."
  2. No way does that kid have complete agenesis of the corpus callosum. If she did, she would not be walking or sitting, at least not at this point. I knew a kid who had it who didn't walk until age 4. I think Jill went overdramatic on the possible TERRIBLE SEVERE diagnosis she got while Janessa was in the womb.
  3. Anyone else having thoughts of Dr Seuss's Sneetches? With the "stars on thars"? Just me? <slinks over to the prayer closet>

    S01.E07: The Wedding

    Newish viewer (Netflix only so far, and some spoilers from youtube because I'm pathetic). Since there is no thread for haikus or other parodies, I need to put one here. From Jamie's POV: Forced to wed Claire. . . but "WON THE F*CKING LOTTERY!" <heart bursts> Pearls. "Precious."

    Geillis Duncan

    New watcher. I think Geillis needs a haiku I <heart> BPC. Kill husband, kill Doug's wife, bear babe for Scots. . . oops! Burnt!
  6. I defy Jill to call this man anything other than the manliest of men. He's welcome to wear "women's clothes" anytime, thank you very much. (Haven't yet persuaded my husband to dress similarly. . . he has VERY nice thighs and calves. . . .)

    S02.E13: Dragonfly in Amber

    I kind of laughed at the idea that Jamie was paying attention to Claire's menstrual cycles. It's just so. . . Sensitive New Age Guy. (okay, it's a song from the 1980s and mentions Walkmans.)

    S02.E05: Untimely Resurrection

    What I can't understand is, back in the episode when Claire told Jamie everything, she didn't include, "And the damndest thing is--you're not gonna believe this--BJR is the direct ancestor of Frank! I mean, how f'ed up is that?" (or if she didn't remember it in that moment, when she *did* remember it, pre-Wentworth, she should have told him). So that this info wouldn't "suddenly" come out and cause a rift. Sigh. Show, you're ticking me off. Claire, you're ticking me off.

    S02.E02: Not In Scotland Anymore

    It feels like this show has jumped the shark. They spent the first season in relatively humble clothing, camping a lot, in peril a lot, and ended at the almost-broke estate. . . and now they're wearing fancy silk clothing and hobnobbing with the Paris elite? Plus Claire's waxing and waning pregnancy looks are taking me out of it completely. She'll look about 7-8 months along in her dressing gown and then loses about 4 months of baby when she's dressed to go out into town. Be consistent, costume people! Oh, and the final thing: They're walking around their house talking openly about their faking-their-Jacobite-allegiance ploy. Servants all around to listen in and spread that info to anyone who will listen. Seems completely unrealistic and utterly stupid.
  10. Well, they *are* a fairly undereducated family. . .

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I can only wish they are all wearing orange to protest gun violence. . . “Anybody, someone out there, help! Rescue me! (And Yaaay.)” Used to work on a professional peer-reviewed orthodontics journal here. Read everything. Relapse (reversion towards presurgical status) is pretty common with orthodontic surgery. The more dramatic/severe the surgery, the greater the likelihood of some amount of relapse. It just isn’t perfectly predictable. Surgeons usually take this possibility into account when carrying out surgery. It could be a crappy surgery, total lack of following post surgical directions on Derick’s part, or some of both.

    Thank you! That was a thing of beauty. . . And a good example of how fundamentally boring these people are. “I feel like I got to know Austin a lot better today” is really the best footage TLC could get?

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    I think we can all be pretty sure she's happier than Josiah and Lauren, just based on current photographic evidence. Unless J&L just photograph incredibly, incredibly badly.
  14. I know Jill's answer to "who shall wear the starry crown?" <cough> <barf emoticon> (not a crown for godliness but for self-centeredness)

    Trust me. I need a laugh.
