  1. It's been cancelled. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/amp/live-feed/harlots-canceled-at-hulu-1297258 Bummer, but last season wrapped up well, at least.
  2. I knew Keiko was closer to Lauren's age, but 34?! That would've made her older then Lauren. I thought she was in her late 20s at the beginning of the show.
  3. I mean, at the end of the day, acting is just another job, if a very unique one by average standards. They are basically playing pretend for however many hours a day. For instance, there's Keiko and Alexis-they made pretty convincing on screen friends, but they really aren't close in real life, going off what I've noticed over the years. Actually, I don't know if Alexis is particularly close to anyone from GG, except maybe Lauren and Kelly, and even then I don't think they hang out that much. I figure actors are just like any other co-workers, sometimes they form deep friendships, and sometimes it's just a professional relationship. The impression I've gotten of both Scott and Lauren from limited sources over the years is they both have fairly "big" personalities. I can see them clashing, or at least not melding well together, outside of the set. I could see both of them being potentially difficult people (and I've heard unfounded rumors about both of them in that potential asshole vein). Could be why Scott is so profuse in his praise of Lauren and why Lauren is lukewarm.
  4. How about the whole episode where the family was discussing DJ's "self-love" habits lol? Plus they did joke about sex a lot with each other.
  5. Wow, okay! Thanks, I got excited and ran to Google to look up the books lol.
  6. So wait, this show is based on a book series? I did a Google search and found nothing.
  7. Yeah, I agree. If someone wants a bio kid, no amount of stepchildren, nieces and nephews, and friend's kids is going to fill that space. So I completely understand Ben wanting his own kid. But realistically, Darlene should realize she doesn't want more kids, especially at her age and with the situation she's in, and Ben and her should probably break up.
  8. I'm absent a few days and all this Leah malarkey comes out! I'm gonna' have to call, no, shout "Bull shirt!" about Leah having wanted to be Corey over Jeremy. She NEVER, especially when they were married but even before, acted like she wanted to be with Corey. She spent most of their relationship obviously neutral on him, at best, and pinning over that loser Robbie. Yeah, maybe she regretted leaving him for a few seconds, but it didn't have anything to do with him being the love of her life. It was probably just a blow to her petty ego to have to lose Corey's attention, Leah is an attention whore over all else. She seemed pretty proud of herself to have bagged Jeremy, being that he was quite a hillbilly catch. I don't know why she has been trying to rewrite her history with Corey these last few years, but it isn't working with me. I'm sure Corey and Miranda are loving that she is including Corey (and I'll bet Miranda) in the BS book. I hope they got some say in what she said about them.
  9. I thought the older guy with the main blonde girl was her dad, so witches probably do marry human men and have children. Also, I'd bet a crisp $20 that male witches/magic users will be a plot point if this show lasts. Perhaps they've been repressed/hidden/side-lined by their dominant female counterparts.
  10. On that note, I'd argue that most of the literature consumed by the well-read characters (Rory and Jess, particularly) wasn't especially challenging. It was mostly the well-known big hitters of literature, not anything particularly unique, subversive, or diverse. Did we ever see Rory read many books by non-white authors, or off beat, unique or obscure literature? I feel like her choices were mostly very safe and WASPy. So, to be honest, I wouldn't say Dean's choices in literature said anything about his intelligence, just because he didn't read Tolstoy or Austin (who I don't see as especially challenging writers and I don't think it says much about Rory's intelligence for reading them). Yeah, Dean had pretty impressive mechanical skills. There is more then one way to be gifted or intelligent, and in the real world, Dean could've become a mechanical engineer. But in ASP's world, if you aren't a college bound reader and incredibly quick-witted and make obscure pop culture references, you are a moronic loser. Unless you own a quirky business, of course.🙄
  11. Yeah, in abusive families there is often a scapegoat child and a golden child. Poor Gabriel was obviously the scapegoat. If that's the same older broad I'm thinking about, she seriously pissed me off when she tried to lob blame off on Gabriel's teacher for letting him leave her classroom at the end if the day. Like, bitch, that poor teacher was calling your worthless asses everyday to report the abuse she was seeing. She was doing her job, to teach children and be a mandated reporter. Short of kidnapping him, there wasn't much else she could've done. And sadly, even if she had kidnapped him, she likely would've gone to jail and Gabriel would've gone back to his abusers. Infuriating.
  12. All I have to say is that it's nuts to me that Chelsea and Cole, children of educated white collar professionals, are so unambitious and care so little about making anything of themselves other then reality TV stars. If I was born into an upper middle class family, I'd like to think I'd have taken advantage of that head start in life (free ride in college, financial help from parents, being able to start my career earlier) and not be as flippant as C&C are. We know Randilicious is a bit of a fameho and very permissive with Chelsea, but I really wonder what Cole's dad, the professor and engineer, thinks of his son's lack of drive.
  13. Well, to be fair, Javi and Jo did leave the show and no longer let their non-Kail kids get filmed. Same with Cory. It would be nice if they took Issac and Lincoln (and the twins for Cory) off the show, but I assume there are reasons they can't, probably due to not wanting to bring on a court battle.
  14. I started feeling their whole "best people/couple/family in the TM franchise" schtick was BS when they'd rather continue to exploit their ever increasing brood instead of, oh, I don't know, WORK and live without the accolades. I get doing the first few seasons of TM2 to make a nest egg, but Cole and Chelsea have overdone it, especially considering they are supposed to be the "good" people on this shit show .
  15. Not to be that asshole, but Kail is not at all pretty enough nor agreeable enough to snatch a wealthy older guy, especially not with soon to be four children.
