  1. Saw the episode today with David, Anna's brother-in-law. There are no words. He was talking about Josh's body within two minutes of seeing him and yikes all the touching. David is so very very fabulous.
  2. Watching the throwback Duggar episodes on DVR right when they found out they were expecting "The Miracle Child" Josie. Jim Bob and Michelle go to Weight Watchers because in this episode he's on a diet. Jane goes with them because apparently she's been going to WW meetings for years. I have nothing against WW, but what did Jana need it for and whose idea was it for her to go in the first place. Some of the girls have round faces, but none of them are even close to overweight. Michelle says it was so she would make healthy choices in her eating, but who knows. While registering for the meetings, Jim Bob has to ask for discounts. I get them being thrifty considering the size of their family and all, but come on, asking for a discount on support group? It was then I realized that I could not stand him. The Duggars meet Dolly Parton was on before this and I call BS on Jim Bob and Michelle not knowing who she was. They both looked to be "normal" teenagers from all the pictures shown and not secluded like the kids, Dolly was a big deal then and at the very least Jim Bob would have known about her due to her large breasts. I mean even as a kid it was a well known joke among boys and this was in the 80's when JB and Michelle were younger. Michelle so cluelessly asks the camera if Dolly was on HeHaw. I guess she never made a guest star on Andy Griffith's show. Ah now they're shopping for a wedding dress for Michelle and although they're not judging people, Anna is asked how "modest" the dress behind her is. Cut to some poor girl who looks beautiful in a strapless gown and Anna is acting like the girl is half naked. They're not judging you know
  3. I am currently doing a rewatch of the series and it's just nice to have it on again. I forgot how much I had loved the show, thank God for DVDs! I have to say that my favorite season hands down is Season Four. I am a sucker for "kid goes to college" seasons or shows which is usually an unpopular opinion, but I like them and I loved Rory's arrival at Yale and it was nice to have a non-romantic season for Rory. Bless AB, but she had what is described as "anti-chemistry" with men on the show, even Milo whom she dated. I only briefly liked Rory with Dean and that was during Season Four/Season Five. AB just looks so awkward having to play romantic scenes with any male. I'm not speculating on her preferences, just that she isn't comfortable doing love scenes it would appear. She had fabulous chemistry with the women of the show, just never with any male. The only short coming of Season Four is that disgusting Digger. I hated watching that relationship play out during the shows original run and I hate it still. I just could not stand the actor and the character and it's beyond me that Lorelai found him remotely attractive, he is just so beneath her in so many ways. I love how this season brings Lorelai's dream to reality and I adore seeing the Inn come together and the final few episodes of the season are just perfection. I have a soft spot for the season two opener and it's follow up because The WB played them as a two hour premiere event and it was a LONG summer waiting for GG to come back on. I got a good friend of mine into the show and we spent the summer watching the first season and highly anticipated the second season, we even had a special dinner in it's honor when it came back in the fall. Good times! I think the show really began to decline in Season Five despite finally having L/L together. Rory went from being a character that I liked and identified with to someone I could not stand to watch. Introducing Logan into the show drove Rory's character into a typical WB/CW heroine who pined over a boy and she never recovered in my eyes. I hated how desperate Rory was for Logan and would degrade herself sexually just to have him pay attention to her. I hated how this forever changed how strong and independent she was. It took a long time for me to enjoy Matt in any other role, even his wonderful job on The Good Wife took time for me to warm to because of how much I hated Logan.

    Audiobooks

    I recently listened to the audio books of the Flowers In The Attic series and I'll agree that they were oddly written, but oddly addictive. I liked the Lifetime adaptations so I wanted to read the source material and while listening to the first novel, I kept thinking that Carrie was such a brat and that I wasn't at all upset at the Grandmother's behavior towards her. Of course I felt bad for thinking this, but it is what it is, lol.
  5. I recently found episodes of Empty Nest to watch onlne and while they're not always the best quality, it's nice to get to see it in order. I have only seen a handful of episodes when Hallmark ran the series late at night a few years back and they were later in the series run. I have always been curious about the show since it's a GG spin off and takes place on the same street and I really cannot wait to get to the Sophia episodes, but it's always intrigued me how the girls would show up at random in some episodes, it's like finding an episode of GG that you never watched before or something which is a rarity as I've probably been through the entire series at least ten times over the years. Anyways, I watched the forth episode of the first season this morning and Blanche was in the episode, she snuck over to try and seduce Harry and eventually becomes obsessed with him. I wonder if this particular episode aired around the time of the GG episode where the girls are discussing who was the first lover after their husbands died and Blanche refers to the minister she slept with who would talk about sin and then look straight at her. Harry makes the comment that it's been months since his wife died and that he hadn't been with another woman. Blanche is of course shocked and declares that she couldn't wait eight months after George died, or for that part even eight weeks, though she is pretty sure it was more than eight days. Harry says something and then with a far off look, Blanche says something about how it was a minister but after that line she drops it. I was stunned, stunned I tell you. Continuity between two shows!
  6. He played the cop who brought the news to Blanche that her boyfriend was in police custody at the end of the pilot episode. I've always noticed that being a fan of Designing Women. It's sad how the cast of DW are dying off now, I still think of them as younger than the GG cast so it was bizarre when Dixie Carter died and I realized that she was in her 70's when it happened.
  7. I had heard about this series because my mother insisted I read it and it just didn't sound like something I would like. I do enjoy dystopian themed shows and books, but this one just didn't interest me very much. I was intrigued when I read that Emma Roberts was starring as I enjoyed her in Scream Four and then on American Horror Story especially. I was a bit disappointed that this didn't go to series, but happy to see Hulu put up the pilot. It had it's flaws, but overall I liked it and thought it was a nice set up for a series. I have lots of questions and I guess I will go ahead and read the series, though I am wondering how close the pilot was to the actual novels. I loved Emma Roberts in this role and thought she did a really good job with a character that could possibly seem really Mary Sue-ish. I also liked the boy who played Alex. I was never impressed with his acting on The Secret Life of The American Teenager, but then again everyone on there was so damn bad until you saw them in something else and realized that they could indeed act, just not with that material. Shailene Woodley is living proof of that theory. I was very interested in the other teens outside Lena and Alex and curious where Julian's story was going, as well as the best friend and the son of the senator. Was the girl that Julian's father referred to, Sunny, the lady Senator? I thought it might be, but was unsure. I'm also curious if the people felt love for family, just not romantic after they took "the cure".
  8. I downloaded the audio version because I feel like Kristen Bell should narrate everything, seriously has she done audio books for any other series cause I'm interested! I really didn't know if I would like this because I'm not big on fan fiction or show related book series, but I actually loved it and it was nice to hear KB as Veronica, although I agree with someone above who said at times Veronica didn't sound like Veronica. I thought KB's Mac voice was spot on and it impressed the hell out of me. I love that Mac and Veronica are still working together and I have always been a fan of their friendship and it's nice that she was a larger part in the story, as with Wallace. I read a lot and mysteries are my thing, but I have to admit that this book puzzled me at times and I couldn't figure out who did what, though I called early on that Haley would be dead. I didn't even consider Lianne being a part of the book and when she was introduced without actually naming her, I kept thinking who are they talking about, who could be this shocking? Then duh, Lianne. I'm thrilled that this is going to be a series and I sincerely hope KB comes back to narrate the next one. If we can't get another movie or series, then this is the next best thing.
  9. I really missed this show! I didn't realize it until watching the opener, but it's nice to have it back, now to just figure out if I should binge watch or drag it out some. It was somewhat of a slow episode, but I liked the background on Piper and to be honest I wasn't really sure where the show was going with this transfer. I don't really read spoilers, but the Laura Prepon news was all over the place so I knew she might not be around, though I thought I had read where she would be in most of the episodes and I think it's been downgraded to just four now, but I could be wrong. I was actually surprised that Alex told the truth and that she got out, though it makes sense given the reduced episode time. I look forward to how this all plays out. I know it's totally childish, but I was laughing at the lady on the toilet singing while she did her business. It was gross yet funny when I realized what exactly she was doing that made her feel like a natural woman.
  10. I recall watching a special about Lucy and Desi years ago where someone mentioned how during the filming of The Lucy/Desi Comedy Hour episode where they visit Japan, things between Lucy and Desi were at the end and the makeup artist had to keep reapplying white face paint to Lucy in her geisha girl costume because she kept crying so much. I had seen that particular episode a few times, but ever since then I cannot bring myself to watch it after knowing that little information.
  11. I always wanted Dorothy to have someone like Rose did in Miles/Arnie and I wanted to see a return of the man Blanche dated in the final season that wanted to take things slow and she finally felt like a lady. I thought that was a sweet storyline, not to mention hilarious with their date that began at the jungle themed motel. Classic!
  12. I always fanwank that Janet and her husband enjoyed their second honeymoon and had another child to try and save the marriage. One thing I always appreciated was that in one episode Blanche makes the comment that she worries about her son even though he is only a CPA and then in an episode of "The Golden Palace" ( I'm a completest, who are you to judge me?) the same son comes to visit and surprises her by revealing that he's quit his CPA job to become a stand up comedian.
