    S05.E03: Five, Six, Seven, Ate!

    I saw it as more equal parts Dirty Dancing/Willard learns to dance in Footloose...especially Clive's reaction at the end. Such a great episode!

    Food Network Star Alums

    I won't admit how I know this, but Jess was one of the judges on the finale of Worst Cooks in America last season. Apparently that's the one and only time she's been allowed out in public.

    S12.E20: The Decision Reverberation

    Pffft. Of course I exist. Silly internet...

    History Talk: The British Monarchy

    Six weddings. (Sorry, I'm sure you know that, but it's such an easy mistake to make.)

    30 Minute Meals

    I'm glad this show is back as well. I credit her with basically teaching me how to cook when I was a young mother just realizing I had these two small people I would be responsible for feeding for the next 18 years (at least). She taught me that cooking was nothing to be intimidated by. As to the your question (bolded), on the behind the scenes episode of her daily talk show on Monday, they said they record 4 episodes a day. Agreed on both points. A lot of her recipes have been in regular rotation in my home through the years, like her Florentine meatballs that both my turkey-hating father and spinach-hating son love.

    OMG @Steph J I wish I could like your post 100 times! I'm glad I didn't have anything in my mouth when I read it.

    S06.E18: The Beverly Goldberg Cookbook

    No, you're correct, shellfish is not kosher. As far as I know, they've never said anything about it. The Goldberg's have never eaten kosher. They regularly eat meat and cheese together, and shellfish. But honestly, as someone who works in a synagogue and so knows literally hundreds of Jewish families with varying degrees of observance, a lot of our members don't keep kosher at all (except during Passover). I think I did see Pops eat Hamantashen in one episode last year (or maybe before), but that's about it.
  8. I can't imagine people not recognizing Gladys' voice is a racial thing. I'm so white I practically glow in the dark and I knew it was her immediately. I don't know...maybe I was just raised right. :-) Now T-Pain on the other hand...yeah, I had no idea who he was.

    S06.E13: I Coulda Been a Lawyer

    Eric is a doctor, too. So, lots of higher education.

    S12.E13: The Confirmation Polarization

    Unless that Indian/Pakistani male character is of a certain age, and then you cast Brian George (including this show). I'm sure there are other older Indian/Pakistani actors in America, but he has literally played every Indian father and grandfather I've seen on American TV in the last 10+ years.

    S01.E09: The Love List

    :-) You're welcome. Admittedly I do rewind the DVR a lot because I'm laughing too hard to catch everything that's said. I just figured whoever was last to the table had to sit off to the side. In the first dinner scene it was Joey, but later in that last scene with Mike's work "friend", it was Pat who was over there.

    S01.E09: The Love List

    God I love this show and I think it's really finding it's groove. So much good stuff this episode. I loved how the three oldest boys appeared at the arch to the dining room with looks of awe, confusion, and amusement when Duncan's parents were apologizing to him. Frank's head whipping back and forth at the dinner table between whoever was talking, and then nodding furiously in agreement with Mike. Joey, Timmy, and William blowing things up (even in their church clothes before breakfast) and eventually "succeeding" with Frank's rocket - that in particular reminded me of my two sons who tried to blow all kinds of things up as kids. Joey busting baby Andy down to 12 on the love list for draining all of them and bringing nothing to the table. Lawrence continually trying to be the voice of sanity. Joey putting his D+ to good use on Peg's beautiful table she bought at that store on the same block as the Ethan Allen. Pat giving William his jell-o because he may have power over life and death. Timmy feeling at home at the hospital because all they served was heated up frozen food. Eddie's disbelief that Mike might have friends and relief in realizing it's just a "work" friend. Joey admitting he broke the table trying to help William and WILL NEVER MAKE THAT MISTAKE AGAIN! But luckily he has a table guy who works off the books (of course he does). Ok yeah, that's just about the whole show, but I really did love this episode. and I just realized I have finally learned everyone's names, so go me! I also recommended the show to a friend of mine who had never heard of it and she loved it. I don't know what the ratings are like, but I'm trying to do my part to spread the word.
  13. The Great Books! I literally have those books in a bookshelf in my hallway. I think I have the entire set. My mother gave them to me when I first moved out after she collected them in the 60s and 70s! LOL

    S24: New Year's Eve Show

    I could have done without Rita Ora burping the alphabet (actually, I could do without ever hearing anyone doing that ever again), but I enjoyed everyone else's tricks. Every time I think I can't love Olivia Coleman more, she proves me wrong. I loved the art curator's red chair story. It was obvious where it was going, but I loved the way she told it and everyone's reaction to it.

    S27: Milo Manheim: Can Zombies Samba?

    I am! Milo's been my pick since week 3 or 4 (whenever he did that awesome Charleston), and I'm sticking with him. I won't be mad if Evanna wins, but I'm rooting for Milo. It's the opposite for me. I've been splitting my votes between the two, because I wanted to help get Evanna into the finals. Mission accomplished. But I want Milo to win, so Monday night all my votes went to him.
