  1. Past hour
  2. One complaint I have is Sharon hearing the news offscreen. With Neil’s death, they’re finally acknowledging Dru’s existence by name and they were close. Because they wanted to erase Dru they stopped having Neil and Sharon interact which was stupid. Sharon Case though was another cast member who looked truly upset during the funeral.
  3. Through the magic of YouTube I was able to watch Just Men and Fantasy(!). I understand why 37 years later there are stlll boards dedicated to Texas(!) and not its the replacements. Fantasy! hosted by Peter Marshall & Leslie Uggams (one could not get a more C-rate celeb duo in 1982) gave out minuscule amounts of cash to fulfill wishes. It could be described as the 80s version of when Kathie Lee would sing for dying kids and their family on Today a few years ago. One family got $2,700 to publish a kid's newspaper which covered "the bare minimum to keep the presses going." It should have been called Fantasy (as long as it's under five grand). Just Men tries to be provocative but is just sexist in retrospect. Betty White asks seven male celebrities a question about a social topic and the contestants have to guess their answers in order to try to win a Ford Mustang convertible. One woman asks where the last place a man got naked in public in order to determine if he would be attended to by a female doctor. As if women in medicine was a sexy taboo for hunky guys to debate? BTW, there was a maximum of two hunky guys per week, the other men were uninspiring. Then, if the contestant doesn't win the key to open the Mustang they don't get anything, except the requisite Turtle Wax and cleaning products! These were the cheapest game shows in history! I would not be surprised if Betty White's hair budget cost more than the prizes.
  4. I thought it would have been neat to do the opening credits with just Neil stills over the years.
  5. Any historical value of the wedding scene was hard to enjoy considering that Smollett did something in real life that reflected poorly on black and LGBT people (not saying that all black and LGBT people would behave like he did, but ignorant people will use him to stereotype them). I think a lot of black people feel like he deserves a pass because they want to play the same game that white people have for years and that is to do wrong without facing consequences. To some it's about evening the score as opposed to actually equality.
  6. Yeah, I didn't love her scenes in the apartment but she was an absolute standout in the funeral scenes.
  7. Today

    MeTV

    😡 ‘The Blob’ at 8PM | 7C, Saturday, April 27, on MeTV.
  9. Dame Joan is back for the upcoming season AHS: 1984!
  10. I apologize that I don't have the specific episodes, but all of my favorite Cliff moments were when he was able to experience a small victory over JR (even though the rug would inevitably be pulled from underneath him the following week). In S3 (the Who Shot JR? season) there is an episode where Cliff is on some governmental board and JR needs some sort of drilling variance and Cliff is able to reject it; which I think is the first time that Cliff was able to flex his power Then, in the S5 finale ep, Cliff and the cartel think they are able to buy Ewing Oil because JR defaults on a loan, but Cliff becomes the cliffhanger when JR double crosses him.
  11. I'm going to miss Gina. She really took Phyllis to a new level I thought...one I actually liked!
  12. I really wish Amazon or another streaming service would show this show from the beginning.
  13. I also totally agree on the appeal of Jason and Linda. Knots had a knack for finding younger talent that played well with the core cast.
  14. A new song/video called ME! drops at 12am and will feature Brendon Urie. Sounds promising so far!
  15. I'm generally OK with Season 12, but WHY spend so much time on Anne's money trouble/deceptions only for them to very quickly deal with Paige finding out the truth? It wasn't meaty, it felt anticlimactic. But Anne going to Nick/Dimitri's hotel room and finding a body there was hilarious. The Valentine's Day episode aired February 21st. A little off, just like this season. I am REALLY loving the Jason storyline. That kid they cast as Jason is so pretty and just the right mixture of bad boy and tragic figure. And Dobson's been turning in some fantastic work. Not sure how to feel about the Val story, really. I guess it's OK but, once more, the writers doing all they can to have Val not be Val. I will never understand why they didn't like her/get her. Also, who would've thought, but I really enjoy Linda! I guess Greg has a type!
  16. The next week, NBC revamped their entire daytime lineup. They were probably advertising the new shows that would premiere in January, 1983. 10 AM- The Facts of Life reruns 10:30 AM- Sale of the Century 11 AM- Wheel of Fortune 11:30 AM- Hit Man 12:00 PM- Just Men starring Betty White 12:30 PM- Search for Tomorrow 1 PM- Days of our Lives 2 PM- Another World 3 PM- Fantasy
  17. As sad as this show was, people weren’t kidding when they said Shemar and Gina Tognoni had chemistry in that tiny little scene.
  18. I wasn’t expecting this week to be quite as hard as it was. I knew it would be difficult but damn, literally sobbed through three episodes back to back. The impact of this family and seeing so many black faces on screen felt huge, but what also hurt is that it felt like the end of an era. Dru is gone. Neil is gone. Malcolm exists, but he’s not around and neither is Olivia. The legacy exists, but there is no telling what the show will do with it. This tribute covered a lot of ground. I loved the small touches like the reverend who felt like what you’d get at a black church. Then you had Leslie in the back, which is where she’d be placed and Sofia and Moses to the side as they were part of his “other family.” It just had such depth and emotion and there wasn’t one person in the room that felt out of place. Neil truly was an impactful character who meant so much to the show as a whole.
  19. While I think Traci going over and listening to the news was badly executed, therefore coming off as a bit nosy and uncomfortable, I actually felt something for Lily and the whole scene got me choked up. Not greatly directed, but they gave it good ole-fashioned melodrama, and it worked.
  20. Yesterday
  21. Honey, Monique, Karen, and Candiace are serving in this new intro. Here it is for those who cannot see it:
  22. Today’s episode was rough, especially after losing a loved one recently. They were worked shooting as they say in wrestling. They were in character but every word said was raw and real from the cast at the funeral Monday is gonna be even more heartbreaking. I’m finna go watch some Maury after I finish watching this episode cause I need an emotional pick me up
  23. Here is another very nice picture someone posted of Neil's family and friends gathered in Devon's penthouse. (While Ana sings/plays the piano.)
  24.
