  1. I'm still mad about how they left Dottie's WATN at the end of last season: Her, in obvious pain and despair, attempting to recover from skin surgery in a lonely hotel room. And, scene. What the ever-loving F. I thought they would come back to her this season, but I guess that's expecting too much from this amateur clown show.

    S07.E25 Jennifer & Marissa & Liz

    Wow, I guess y'all hated this episode since there's like one on-topic post in this entire thread. Jennifer has no redeeming qualities that I can see. Abandoning her daughter in Houston to move in to a shithole in Killeen with Da-Wayne, and not even telling her that's what she was doing ranks right up there with some of the most despicable acts we've seen on this show. Did she even show up at the hospital after Marissa's gall bladder surgery? Bah. I hope she regains it all. I'm rooting for her to fail. How dare she whine about Marissa going back to California so she wouldn't have to be alone. Marissa, visiting Jennifer's love nest in Killeen for the first time. Jennifer: "Do you like it?!" Marissa, doubtfully: "Yeah, it's cute..." Arrested Development narrator: "It wasn't."

    S07.E24: Sean

    This episode reinforces my general impression that Dr. N is pretty much a saint. No, I don't always agree with him, and I think he can be too dismissive of pain, but... he threw everything plus the kitchen sink at Sean. Every tool in the toolbox. He never gave up on him, he never abandoned him. He, of all people, seemed to understand that Sean was utterly alone. And yet in the end, some people can't be helped. We suffered a loss this year, a childhood friend; an attorney from a good family - a nice, genuinely good person, who couldn't get past his demons and kick the drugs, despite having had every resource, multiple in-patient rehabs, and every chance in the world. It wasn't enough. He died with a needle in his hand. And he had so much more than Sean. I hope Sean's spirit is at peace. He's in a better place now. He has to be, because he was living in hell.

    Janine has cloying, inappropriate simpering down to an art form.

    Small Talk: Only 2 Ounces Of Commenting Allowed

    I don’t make a habit of clicking obvious spam email, but my finger accidentally grazed my iPhone screen, bringing up the following image. When I saw it I was so confused. Dottie? What are you doing here in my junk mail? Now she’s “Don’s Wife”. 😂
  9. When I defended Melissa it wasn't because I thought she could be motivational (she can't, in her current state. So. Much. Crying.). It was because I didn't expect her to be spinning all her plates and dealing with all her myriad issues AND have perfect lipstick and no dishes in the sink.

    S07.E08: Maja's Story

    What a super weird episode. Girlfriend lost virtually 100 lbs in 2 months and then effectively quits? How could she fit in that little green clown car she drives but needs a mega-SUV rental? Where does her money come from? Chrisshun? I am bringing this up specifically because on the show when she was berating him for leaving she said something about him leaving right before the rent was due. Did she have no money after he left? I just don't get it. As far as taking sides in the Maja/Chrisshun throwdown, can I just hate both of them? There was not one moment Chrisshun seemed to even approach "liking" her, from the first minute we saw him. Was there a really long time between when he applied for the show and when they got accepted? Because he was clearly over it. She is a hose beast and he is a nasty, sulky man child. But oh, that fight in Dr. Now's office. "Mooooooooooom, Chrisshun's ruining everything!" That was one for the ages.

    S07.E05: Holly's Story

    Amen. After my grandma was diagnosed with diabetes, my grandpa gave up sweets, even though she insisted it wouldn't bother her if he had them. On Saturday mornings he would go out with a friend and treat himself to a doughnut, because he loved them so. But he would only do it outside her presence. That's what love is, RAY.

    This episode was a total zzzzzZZZZzzzzz but there was a moment of unintentional hilarity when Little Miss Thang demurely lied to Dr. Now about her eating habit, topping off her lie with the biggest and best cherry ever: "toast with sugar free jam" and then batting her eyelashes as though she wanted a gold star or something from the Good Doctor. Thank God this man has x-ray vision for bullshit and no tolerance for cutesy-wootsy mannerisms.

    S07.E04: Justin's Story

    He said himself that he had stopped working and gone on disability. Not sure why he couldn't continue to do the web design work, but those were his own words. I feel dazed and confused about the episode. I thought I was watching My 600-lb Life, but the subject was a college graduate who owned a home and took care of himself. He faced his demons head-on and worked the program like it was his only job. I suspected during the Skype call that his mom was totally stoned. She loves him, but she can't pull herself out of her personal hell enough to be of any good to him. His dad went from about a 3 on my initial impression to a 10++++ YAY DAD at the end. Hopefully he and Justin can continue their close relationship, because Justin needs one parent to participate in his life, and it will never be his mom. Go, Justin, go. You killed it. I loved your goal of becoming a pilot. Do it, do it, do it.

    Starcasm's page is so loaded down with ads and spam that it took me 5 minutes to get to this. Wowza, Dottie.

    S07:E02 Brianne's Story

    I'm deeply uncomfortable with the judgment that a mother should have taken her 3 kids and left her husband, based only on precious few statements from Brianne, who as much as I liked, I do not view as a reliable narrator. We don't know 99.9% of the real story, and I feel like the narrative that's being crafted here is so far from reality that it's practically science fiction. All I know is that the ambush in the restaurant was bullshit.
