    S03.E06: Season 3, Episode 6

    The theme of the season so far is: For her fierce love of friends and family, Margaret ruins everything. Cherry looked quite fetching in her new togs! Emily Lacey may have to kill that whore who knows her secret. I suspect she'll keep coming back to shake her down. Poor Emily is under so much stress right now. Blayne is just so...gross. I like this saucy, independent Kate. I'm intrigued to see where her story goes. Mr. Young is a silver fox. He's feisty! That was a surprisingly touching parting scene between Margaret and Lydia. I think Lydia might be headed towards a measure of healing and redemption. Maybe. Mr. North truly is a rock in the midst of all this chaos. I might have gotten something in my eye when Margaret left him on the pier. Aw shit! That Hal is a dogged sort. I fear for Emily Lacey. Knox tickles me with his hilarious reactions to so many women whispering in his ear. Elizabeth Harvey looked like a walking wedding cake cake in that white dress.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    That book review of Dirty, Sexy Politics was SAVAGE! My favorite thing about it is that the critiques are all things that we have called out on here. Apparently, she hasn't changed much over the years. From the last paragraph:

    Yeah. With Ms. May breathing down her neck, that may come sooner rather than later.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    Was that Elle article supposed to be sympathetic? So much shade. Meghan, this is how you successfully fillet someone. Kinda sad that Meghan has to give herself those kind of pep talks constantly: "I'm strong. I'm a big girl, I can take it," etc. She really isn't cut out for this work. I wish she realized that it's ok to go do something else that might make her happier.

    I get where Margaret was coming from, but, if she hadn't interfered, the Pinchers plus Emily would have been out of her girls' hair. When Lydia was watching Charlotte die, so many emotions played across her face. Love and hate and horror and regret, and maybe even true sorrow. Ms. Harvey was feeling Mr. North! As things stand now, I would not be opposed to Mr. North being felt. When Margaret's current husband started talking to Mr. North , the tension was ridiculous! The ever increasing tension as more characters were added to the Fitz ballroom was masterful. Oh, Fredo. Sigh. Discretion. Loved Lucy sussing out what was happening and intervening. Gah! I guess when post coital bliss Charlotte was all walking out in nature basking in the sun and savoring blue skies in delightful cherry red and white stripes, we should have known that she would not be long for this world. I was spoiled here before I watched, so that scene felt extra poignant. Ms. May is so gross, and Ms. Harvey learned: #BitchBetterHaveHerMoney. Loved Nancy and Margaret's conversation about married life. Mr. North's boxing protege is gonna cause trouble for Harriet. He's cute, but he's naive about the ways of this world. The new husband is handsome, and seems decent. Margaret is gonna break his heart.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    Born in 1940, entered poverty in 1949. We didn't have Ritz Crackers at home when I was a kid because "they're too expensive." Even now (I'm wealthy due to Social Security and a pension), I think I'm buying A Very Special Treat when I pick up a box. So...I'll try Ritz with chili but I'll use the crackers to just scoop the chili. (Do we need a Foodie page here?) I love this discussion, cuz, as a kid growing up in the 80s, I thought that Ritz were the fanciest crackers ever, and considered it a treat when my granny would share hers with me. And she did NOT break them out everyday.

    Brilliant! I wish I could both love this and laugh at it.

    Some people have pointed that out on here, and I agree. Elektra is living that persona to the hilt. Harsh and cruel as she can be, her flawless style, flair for drama, and flashes of vulnerability throughout the series made me love her. If you can, look up interviews of the actress playing her, her life is amazing.

    "The View": Week of 6/3/2019

    "ABC executives apparently hired Huntsman to offer some emotional support to McCain, whose polarizing presence on the show regularly receives online backlash and scrutiny, and the show's research on her scored extremely low. The source said: 'The network felt as though hiring Meghan's best friend would make her more likable." So, basically...Abby was brought in as a emotional support/therapy animal for Meghan?

    Songland

    I am loving the passion and energy that will.i.am and the other musical artists bring to the show! Their love of the music and the process of creation shines through. They offered excellent feedback, and it was so much fun to what them riff on the songs on the spot. The young songwriters are so talented, and so very lucky to have this opportunity. Just saw the end! will.i.am is truly the best.

    S11.E14: Grand Finale

    Those legends got about 2 seconds a piece, and no name chyrons. Though, Raja got maybe 3.5 seconds, and rightly so. HOORAY FOR YVIE!!!!

    She-Ra And The Princesses Of Power

    Were those few episodes really the entirety of season 2? My daughter was convinced it was just a half season. Arrrrgh! We loved what we got, but we are so ready for more! Catra's story arc makes my heart hurt. Her relationship with Shadow Weaver is so toxic.

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    THIS. And also that the Dothraki and Unsullied didn't wreak some serious havoc at the death of their Queen. Those guys just seem to expand and contract based on script convenience.

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    I would watch this. Count me in. Though, my friend imagined Drogon taking her home, laying her atop a rock, setting her on fire, then curling up around her to die. Cersei was Sansa's role model. It reminded me a bit of Dany's Northern wardrobe, too,.

    Shoulda thrown in a mule and some honeycomb to go with thse 40 acres...

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    Basically the only thing it meant was that Sansa was able to use that information to cause turmoil in Danys inner circle. It literally did nothing else. He didn't even come close to the throne It kept his ass from being Dracarysed.

    So, Drogon be like: Fuck this pokey chair, and fuck this cold-ass climate. Come on, Mom. We goin' home.

    S08.E05: The Bells

    It really was puzzling. In my imagining, I see Cersei having a backup plan to save her life and that of her unborn child. Once she saw the tide turn against her, she would immediately have left that balcony and proceeded into a secret passage underground that lead to somewhere safer. She could still encounter Jaime in the same place, they could still be trapped and die together, but, at least, Cersei would have died asserting some self-preservatory agency. Have them see each other, but not be able to get to each other due to rubble, and she has to watch him crushed under falling rubble. Then, she could die alone, weeping, as the building collapsed around her.

    This was actually my favorite scene in the entire episode. As for all the rest, I say: "FUCK THIS SHOW." I'll be here next week cuz I am exhausted and I just want this to end. I sincerely hate feeling this way.

    I think you are right, and they both played it so well. Emma was like Mary Poppins on steroids. I think you are right, and they both played it so well. Emma was like Mary Poppins on steroids.

    These judges need to get together with the crew from Maine Justice. That would be a hoot! They could all go out to dinner, dog included.
