  1. Today
  2. BB21 - Pre-Show Discussion - Premeires June 25

    O think last season was pretty awesome. With the exception of Scaggy and his baby mama.
  3. I just *know* this season is going to be the one that returns the show to its former glory, and will be beyond awesome!
  4. Julie Chen - Mrs. Moonves

    Just like Rachel is Vegas, Julie is BB. Or something like that.
  5. BB21 Premiere

    Season 21 of "Big Brother" premieres
  6. Julie is back as host.
  7. General Drama

    GoT SPOILERS: I think the series finale was better and actually more satisfying than I expected, though it DID NOT AT ALL EXCUSE any narrative sins of the past “two” seasons. As much as I really hated episode 5, I actually don’t object to Dany’s turn. Rather, that it wasn’t earned over the past 2 seasons. Foreshadowing and “hitting” plot points on an outline are not the same as writing actually convincing character development. GRRM had suggested 4 full seasons post-season-6/A Dance with Dragons, but instead we watched an extended single season with a really long hiatus in the middle. I’ll guess that Dany’s turn happens in the forthcoming books, but with a much more believable descent. Ditto with the whole Night King threat thread. And given GRRM’s reputation, he may very well go beyond the outline he gave the show runners (I refuse to refer to them with the same abbreviation as a venerable tabletop RPG) for the characters we saw on-screen. Time to see if any of my friends have the audio books I can borrow. As far as what happened on-screen that I haven’t seen expressed elsewhere yet: Seems to me that the Iron Throne itself lost the Game of Thrones to a wheelchair. One take I have seen, tho not as wide as others: for all practical purposes, Tyrion ultimately “won” the Game as Hand of the King to voluntary figurehead Bran the Broken Plot Thread.
  8. Yesterday
  9. Yay!!! That's going on the calendar.
  10. Premiere date is June 25 with the same two-night setup as the past couple seasons.
  11. Last week
  12. Survivor 38: Edge of Extinction

    At least they didn't have little girls in the audience predicting who was going to win. I did like some of the new challenges, and I suppose they make enough money to build elaborate structures, like the one in the water, for just a one-time use. No more eating disgusting things, or physically fighting with each other..
  13. Survivor 38: Edge of Extinction

    What a complete waste of time this season turned out to be.
  14. Best thing about that finale is the knowledge that I won’t have to see Reem Daly on my screen for the foreseeable future.
  15. Well, yes, I see your point... she did seem well-liked. I was *very* surprised she didn't vote for Gavin, speaking of Freckles.
  16. Yah, I think Freckles was pretty well liked and had her hand in a lot of dealmaking.
  17. Survivor 38: Edge of Extinction

    Sorry...my bad I hit G instead of C
  18. Survivor 39: Island of the Idols

    My Aunt really likes the new twist. I pretended I did, when I was over there with her, but inside, I, like MrsG, was going "meh..." And I do *not* like Sandra. Rob got annoying enough, after all those times, but at least he does have an amusing side at times (or at least he used to). Sandra doesn't even have anything amusing about her (at least not to me). And for me, along with everything else, I like to be amused, at least at times. But you bet your ass I'll be watching it.
  19. I know, elizabethann!! me too!!! I mean, he *always* does that kinda thing. But then this year the "reunion" part was super-short, don't even think it was a full half-hour, since they had to do so much stuff for the finale episode itself. "Joe and his mustache"... haha! You really think he would've lost against Freckles, even, MrsG? I think that last "big play" of challenging Dadbod Rick is what got him enough votes. And once again, person #3 sits there without a single vote... which would be kind of embarrassing or whatever if you were that person -- it's like you'd rather have just been voted out before that.
  20. Survivor 38: Edge of Extinction

    That could be one option for the stupid "couple name" if Chris & Gavin hooked up...
  21. I was waiting for Probst to ask the assembled jurors who they would have voted for if Dadbod had been in the mix.
  22. General Drama

    Episode 2 was good. The rest has been utter bullshit. Were we supposed to feel sorry for Cersei and Jaime getting crushed by the Red Keep? That swelling violin music said I should feel bad. Instead it made me angry. Your pun game is excellent as usual. SLuG for the Iron Throne!
  23. Survivor 39: Island of the Idols

    I'm feeling very Meh about this twist at the moment.
  24. Survivor 38: Edge of Extinction

    Not sure who Ghris is, though.
  25. Exactly on the competition. He bonded with the jury. Had he been up against Rick, we know he would have lost. Had he been up against Joe and his mustache? A loss. He might have lost against Ron or Freckles as well.
  26. Watching something pathetic is our wheelhouse, though generally it is in conjunction with Big Brother.
