      RIP. It seems like so many stars from my childhood are passing.

  2. Just sad for the people of Sri Lanka right now.

  3. Jenny McCarthy is admittedly no brain trust, but this excerpt from a new expose on The View is brutal: https://www.vulture.com/article/ladies-who-punch-the-view-jenny-mccarthy-barbara-walters.html

      I think JM did a good job of painting herself as the nice girl victim.  I actually fell for that for half a second, not that I have even a pinch of respect for her due to the vaccine issue.  Look how she paints herself as sympathetic to Walters, while making Walters look pathetic and incompetent, which she most likely was, but still. The repeated use of the word "shuffling" for example. I imaging to someone like BW there is nothing worse than being made to sound incompetent at your job.  She's never been warm and fuzzy that is for sure.  I've always instinctively avoided watching her because I found her off putting. Still, I respect that she broke barriers for women and being soft probably wouldn't have achieved that.

       

      I know next to nothing about WG either, but I'm going to go on a limb and guess that her career path wasn't an easy one.  I wouldn't have befriended JM in her place. I'm willing to give people a lot of slack in life, but using fame to damage public health is not something I have a lot of patience with.  Notice she is still doubling down with her BS on autism. She won't simply admit that what she says has no basis in fact. She's one of those "you don't know my truth" idiots.

       

      Apparently, BW is pretty far gone these days, so hopefully she won't even hear about this.  As for WB, I'm guessing she doesn't give a damn what JM thinks.

      I'm not sure how to feel about Barbara Walters.  Part of me feels bad that she was pushed out, but it sounds like it was time. Whoopi doesn't come off as very nice and JM is useless, imo.  She can go straight to hell with her anti vaxxer, anti science nonsense.

  5. I need good thoughts and prayers. I am up for something I consider a dream job for me. Interview was today. Won't know until late next week. 

     

    Nervous as hell. I really want and need this job.

  6. Watching ODAAT...Justina Machado is an incredible actress and she's doing some of the best sitcom work I've seen...probably ever, but it tells you something about Bonnie Franklin's presence that too often I still accidentally call Penelope "Ann."

      I just leave my computer running overnight and then watch for real when I have the time. Maybe Netflix can tell I'm doing that though. Hopefully not.

      I'll check it out.  This reminds me of when I watched the Sarah Connor Chronicles and realized I thought Brian Austen Green was hot. 😂

      The Passage! Yes. I hope this show can survive on Fox.

      Exactly! Go talk to a shrink instead of taking the risk that you are inspiring some other fool to think this is a legitimate response to violence.

      Unreal. There are some things a person should just keep to themselves.  Such as wanting to murder a random person for revenge. 🙃

  12. Why am I not surprised Netflix is painting a boy subjecting another boy to homophobic abuse as loving and romantic. There continues to be a very disturbing narrative going on with Netflix's "youth" shows.

    1. Juliajms

      You're right Carl, especially because of the differences in the amount of representation between straight and gay couples.  I remember when Glee did a much lighter version of this with Kurt and that kid who was bullying him.  The kid kissed him after calling tormenting him for ages.  I can't even put my finger on why it's so offensive, but if it were my son I'd want him to tell the other person to piss off.  It's like it somehow put the obligation on the victim to sympathize with the bully because they can't handle coming out and their feelings of attraction. No thank you.

      Yuck.  I hate it when shows do this with any couple. It's such an unhealthy view of relationships and love.  When it's geared to kids it's even worse.  Beyond that the idea that bullies are just looking for connection makes me sick. Usually it's a teenage boy doing this to a girl. Would anyone think it's a love story if he spit on her and then they hooked up if it were a straight couple?

  14. Wishing Knots Landing would rerun on TV again. I am a Knots knut lol.

      You're right. It's not free with prime, but you can buy the episodes for $2.99. Dynasty is free with prime. I never watched that one so I'll have to check it out.

      I would love that. It's weird that KL, Dallas and Falcon Crest aren't streaming.

  17. At least there are no notifications from people on the Ignore list.  I can't see them quoting me unless I venture into the actual thread as I've just discovered.

      Yeah, I know I shouldn't have engaged either, but the condescension got to me.  The current political environment has sapped my patience when it comes to dealing with willful ignorance. Anyway, that's one more person to add to my mental list of people to ignore under all circumstances.

      ^ The patience you and some other posters have shown with some of these people astounds me. But yes, the ignore function is in desperate need.

  19. The success of Michael B. Jordan always reminds me of how pissed off I was by the way AMC treated the character of Reggie. Yes, I'm still holding that grudge.

      TT was treated shamefully by ATWT, but she was truly too good for that show. People always say the actors they like are too good for soaps, but she stood out as being too good for ATWT specifically. ATWT will always have a special place in my heart, but it went through some times of really bad camp.

      I agree with you Vee. Who among us (other than Carl) would have thought things could actually get worse? Yet here we are and it's at least one of the reasons this genre is dying. Now there are so many shows out there that can cater to just about any niche audience there is, so why should anyone waste time watching soaps? I can't imagine a new viewer tuning in to any of the daytime soaps and choosing them over what Netflix can offer.

      It's not even that I'm uncomfortable discussing it, it's that it's happened so much I've accepted it on some level.  That said when I heard that Y&R was dumping the Winters, I lost all interest in the show.  It's not even for social justice reasons because I consider soaps a lost cause. It's just that Y&R without Neil isn't my show despite the way the character was ruined.  And yes, what OLTL did with REG was a travesty.

      It was a complete waste of talent and opportunity on their part. It was obvious even then, but time has shown it to be an even bigger blunder.
