  1. I actually really liked this show so I'm sad they're not giving it another season. Especially since they renewed Nancy Drew and that show sucked. 😒
  2. I'm sad about this cancellation, too. I really liked this show. Boo, ABC. Boo to you. 😒
  3. It is definitely a thing and has been done for a long time. I did it at my wedding 13 years ago. However, we didn't do it the way they did it with Angelina where everyone got to witness the first look. It was just me, my husband, the two photographers, and the videographer. And it was a lovely private moment (I mean, as private as it could be considering it was being documented) between the two of us.
  4. Thank you! I totally missed that.
  5. I'm sorry if this has been addressed somewhere already but I'm having trouble remembering the details in this season. Did they ever resolve Beth's "pregnancy"? Is she still supposed to be pregnant? Did Rio figure out she isn't? How much time has actually supposed to have passed since the beginning of the season?
  6. Rudi is insane. I'm never certain why a person (usually one of the women) thinks that giving another person a shrieky dressing-down will somehow eventually win them over. A calm discussion is usually the better option if you're feeling - however incorrectly - that you've been wronged. But then again it's silly of me to expect that with this franchise. 😊 I thought Ryan had a lovely voice, far nicer than Jamie's. Hers wasn't bad, just not as strong as his. And agree that his was nicer than Trevor's. I was bummed but not surprised that Jamie picked Trevor and was delighted that Rudi picked Ryan even though that had producer-driven written all over it. I thought Sheridan was really nice and am glad he got to stay. I was a bit put off at how many times we saw some of the men pressuring the women for a kiss on the first night. It was. . . kind of gross. The serenading is always cringey but I guess it's going to be par for the course with this show so I'm going to have to prepare myself for it with more than just one glass of wine. 😂
  7. That's the church where I got married! It's Holy Family Church in Chicago and it's absolutely stunning. And the parishioners there are so lovely and welcoming. I'm delighted it *finally* made it onto one of the Chicagos. ❤️
  8. I absolutely cracked up at this exchange. Beverly: On your verbal portion you got in the 90th percentile! Pops: That's really high! (high-fives Adam) Beverly: On your math you got in the. . . bottom fifth percentile. Pops: That's really low. Adam: Is it? I'm not really a numbers guy. Pops: Yeah, I'm getting that. 😂
  9. I agree. And then we'll have to go through a period of Sylvie mourning the loss of her mother and being distraught over not getting to be in her half-sister's life, and of course Casey will swoop in with all the comfort he has to offer and then. . . LOVE.
  10. I *really* didn't like this episode. I was so uncomfortable with the entire Carol storyline. While I understood why corporate wouldn't have fired her (the fear of being sued for discrimination against someone with a mental disorder rang true), I don't believe that they would've put her back in the same store as the person she had actually threatened. I would imagine they would've given her the option of moving to another store or, if she refused as they mentioned she did, laying her off with some sort of severance/payoff. I just can't believe they would've continued to open themselves up to the repercussions of her actually harming Sandra or causing a hostile work environment for all the employees. Amy/management not wanting to involve HR gave me some really unpleasant flashbacks, too. I worked for a company where there were some serious issues happening on my team and my manager talked us out of going to HR every time with the same rhetoric that Amy used: we don't want HR monitoring everything we do, we don't want HR looking into how we operate, HR will cause more trouble than they'll solve. It was awful feeling trapped like that, and seeing Amy do the same thing to Sandra made me a little sick. The Jonah storyline bothered me, too. He used to be a hopeless idealist but now he's just kind of an idiot, desperate to be liked and desperate to be relevant but not in an amusing way. It was just pathetic. As someone upthread mentioned, if Cheyenne is the cool head in a situation, you know you have some serious problems. And the way Mateo and Garrett abused that poor guy was the shit cherry on top of the shit sundae. The story initially had some promise but it took a steep downturn when it became clear that they were taking advantage of the poor guy's financial situation just to have a little free time at work. Especially when the guy was actually experiencing physical pain. I would've much preferred it if they had him running around the store doing odd jobs and having the rest of the employees look at him with the same "Who the fuck is that?" reaction that Amy had at the end. The only parts I liked were Cheyenne's accurate assessment that Jonah has a narc vibe (indeed) and Garrett calling Celine Dion "white Whitney Houston." Otherwise, this episode was no bueno.
  11. I remember when it finally turned out to be lupus, too! I had to Google it to find the actual episode: Season 4, episode 8 "You Don't Want to Know." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_Don't_Want_to_Know It had to happen sometime, right? 😄
  12. My husband and I don't have it set up on our phones. I don't even turn on my Location Services unless I absolutely need to. I have issues with privacy. 🤷‍♀️
  13. TV medicine has taught me it's always Lupus! House taught me it's never lupus!
  14. See, and I don't remember any of this. The only time I remember her talking about her family before this episode is the first time she turned up on the show when she told Trudy that she became a cop because of how well Trudy treated her as a kid when her father's restaurant was robbed while she was there and he was pistol whipped and she was waiting at the precinct worried about whether he'd survive. And in terms of violence in her past, I only recall there being an implication of an incident between her and the Man In Black from Lost when she was undercover, which sucks yeah but is a risk of her job. That's why all of this seemed contrived to me, not because I thought Hailey herself was being shady but because it seemed like the writers were changing her history to generate sympathy.
  15. Totally agree. If it was nothing more than a kiss, she would've let it go by now or just told Ethan about it and emphasized that it was nothing. But it's clearly not nothing for her; between her obsession over this tiny indiscretion and her apparent jealousy over whatever connection she perceives is between Natalie and Crockett, she clearly is into him. I can't stand her.
