    S15.E09: Week 9: Hometown Dates

    I think we are underestimating the control of producers and editing. It probably doesn't seem that bad when it's happening, but when it shows up on TV.... I think this whole show has been scripted. I have some married acquaintances from over 10 years ago where the husband is still trying to make it as a musician. She makes a load of money, I think working for a software company. She's allowed to work at home (at this point she probably runs the department) and they've moved all over the country trying for him to make it big (Atlanta, LA and now Nashville). They live very comfortably and have two kids and that's just how it works for them. No shade, I just think Jed's family was trying to tell her once abc goes away, it's not a very glamorous lifestyle, but it can work if she's willing to be the breadwinner.

    I think it was maybe a hundred dollar bill?
  3. I watched the jack wagner one last night, I don't even know the name of it. The actress always gets to work with fairly attractive "hunks" but seems like a mismatch with all of them. She's got this prim and proper preppy vibe about her, I find it hard to believe she was a hot couple with the guy last night or even the pride and prejudice dog one. I missed the first half hour so I couldn't understand why the wedding couple and best man were at the resort for a week beforehand still doing all the planning but then there wouldn't be a movie so... It was okay, I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either. Jack Wagner and the melrose gal are looking so old.

    So I'm also heading the the very small corner that houses those that do not find Tyler attractive. I had the episode on, but only listened to it (not watch) bc I was working on the computer, and boy does that give one a whole different perspective on things! I did not hear any kind of romance between Jed and Hannah, I actually thought he was on the verge of being sent home with his confession! No doubt, she's watching him closely now and I don't buy any of his changed heart. Her fake facts were dumb and only solidified that young people aren't really taught history anymore which makes me sad. Maybe she does know it and was being funny (obviously) but for some reason it annoyed me. Tyler is feeding her all the smooth lines, esp last week with his woman run the world schpiel. Huge eye roll. I think her first instinct is correct. I don't think the Luke incident was all that bad and it didn't sound to me like Luke P lied to Hannah. I mean, the other Luke DID sort of "force" him to go tell hannah by way of peer pressure, and also dude, go defend yourself. I also hate the gang-up, the moral police and philosophers. Like, it's the Bachelorette, you can't tell me any of these dudes are super serious about getting married soon. I think Luke P translated the "info" in a different way, maybe unintentionally maybe not. It's like the telephone game. Either way, I don't even care. And get off my lawn!
  5. I had Graceland on until the last 30 minutes - what, I was folding clothes! Can anyone tell me what happened at the end? I don't care enough to watch it again, but I'm curious if the issue of - oh noes we can't find a minister - turned into Priscilla Presley being the officiant... which is what I was guessing would happen. I don't care enough to find out if the happy couple got her father's blessing or not. Also, way to stereotype military dads. Wes Brown is way out of Kelli Pickler's league.

    S15.E02: Week 2

    Oh he totally wasn’t into her- body language, chaste kiss, etc. I thought he was hot until he showed up at dinner with slicked hair and my opinion did a 180. I checked out of Becca’s season after a few episodes and only watched 5 minutes of Colton so I have no preconceived opinion on Hannah. She’s fine so far but I also love Emily FWIW. Luke is creepy and apparently becomes the annoying stalker next week. The clip they showed reminded me of Krystal who was interrupting a lot in the beginning of Ari(?)’s season... I think it was Ari. She did end up going far though. Cam knows he won’t “win” so he’s doing his best to get on Paradise.
  7. OMG, I just gasped out loud. I love them both so I am there with bells on. And I get singing to boot? It;'s like Christmas! Fun fact: Laura’s husband photographed my wedding. So excited to see her on Hallmark!
  8. I went to bed after 30 minutes - did they explain how long it had been since she’s talked to her father? Or why exactly her mother “heard” from a random stranger that her ex-husband needed help? I guess bc he’s too stubborn to ask, but honestly didn’t look that injured to me. Or why the father was so rude to his daughter? I get that he wanted a ranch-loving daughter, but he married some rich new Englander at some point so it’s not like he doesn’t at least “like” northeasterners. But yes, how dumb to ignore the fact that her past would be outed in a millisecond.
  9. I’m usually the one who doesn’t like most of the movies (but can’t stop watching! Lol) too and I agree. I even missed the whole first half but managed to pick it up anyway- I still thought it had low energy. And I usually like the Luke McFarlane movies. Sad!
  10. Yes this part didn’t make any sense. The contract was fulfilled, there was no issue. So she decides to quit her job so she can be at the restaurant 24/7? Why couldn’t she just keep her job and date him without having to work there? She could even still be an investor. That’s how most relationships work anyway. TBH, I was kind of on the boss’ side for this one - I think she will regret it. I know it will never happen but it’d be great to get a sequel where it all does go south and she has to look for a new job... but of course everything would be fixed by the end.
  11. Finally finished watching Pearl in Paradise thanks to someone here and liked it! (Rare for me to say this, I know) But I like Kristopher and everything he’s in so there’s that too. As always I do have a few beefs: - I was sure they were going to lose this poor woman’s old journal the way they were casualing throwing it around. I was legit worried about it. - Seemed a little far-fetched that Alex would think her job was on the line if she didn’t find the pearl, wasn’t the whole point about the search? Speaking of, hopefully they featured the guy’s off-the-beaten path getaway in the magazine I have this problem with a lot of Hallmark movies but the graphic design of supposedly super amazing artwork always ends up looking like the intern did it in Word. They don’t have anyone over at Hallmark headquarters in the art department who can handle movie graphics? As a designer this always bugs me. Maybe I should see if they’d hire me as a freelancer. Like, take it up a notch or 10! The cover photo was awful! There’s no way that would happen, it would be a be a beautiful shot of Fiji. I had the same problem with the Love, Chabert and Chocolate movie. A food stylist from NYC would not be walking around taking pictures with a Kodak digital camera from 2003.
  12. Full disclaimer: I don’t like any of Lacey chabert’s acting so any movie of hers is usually a no for me. But yes, the actor was delightful and charming - now I see he was in matchmaker and I actually like that movie (and that actress) so that makes sense ha!
  13. Are we watching this chocolate movie with chabert? What a snoozer!! I do want chocolate now though so there’s that.
  14. The Story of Us started out strong but fizzled out. I liked the leads, Sam Page is adorable. It was refreshing how there was no annoying misunderstanding that could have been resolved by email 15 years prior, just a mutual break-up before college. Also that both moved away from the hometown and it was only the female that had decided to move back. Slightly ridiculous that the architect would be tasked with convincing the town for a week but okay. The annoying: I feel like I recently watched the same exact storyline in another movie; build-up to some kind of ex returning story only to have him show up and be pretty wimpy with zero surprises since we knew she wasn’t interested. The storefront graphic signage and interior decoration of the bookstore was laughable. I can’t with the cheap fake flowers everywhere. And finally, the ending had a huge build-up (candlelit walkway again?) only to end with a pretty chaste peck on the lips from about 3 ft apart. Did she even know he would be moving there? The almost-kiss on the porch felt more heated than the one at the end.
  15. Finally got around to finishing “A Perfect Bride: Happily Ever After.” Meh. First I was annoyed that their whole relationship seemed to be about joking around. Actress basically giggled through the entire movie. Secondly, terrible idea to work with the ex. How long had it been since the incident? And the photographer didn’t have enough cohones to tell her it was a bad idea. Thirdly, the bad advice of the friends who convinced the couple that everything needed to be perfect. And then in the end, they were all surprised at the post-poning. Thanks for nothing sister. Also, did he take the 20k job? He should have. I’m glad they still went through with it BUT OF COURSE everything magically wrapped up perfectly in the last 15 minutes. Also, didn’t seem like they were that stressed out about things.
