  1. Have you heard anything about Hogan’s health status? I remember Michael Park and others asking for prayers because he wasn’t doing very well. (Not to derail this thread...)
  2. NYC Season 3 is still the Housewives gold standard for me. Granted, I haven’t watched some of the newer franchises (like Potomac or Dallas), but that was nearly a perfect season, including the reunion episodes. Iconic from start to finish.
  3. Just a shame that we have to wait until 2020 for Chatrier to get a roof, but better late than never. I was thinking about how rain would impact the players. The damp, heavy courts could deaden a bit of Nadal’s topspin, but this isn’t his first time at the rodeo.
  4. Literally the rest of the week looks awful weather-wise in Paris (and I mean through the end of the tournament). Tomorrow and Tuesday look particularly bad. I wonder if we’ll see any play before Wednesday.
  5. Lots of people pissed about the Cecchinato win on Twitter (due to the match fixing allegations that have followed him). Goffin looked completely out of sorts. Great draw for Novak, though.
  6. Serena vs Maria. Monday.
  7. I’m sure the costs of mounting and especially marketing new daily soaps for a shrinking, aging audience are prohibitive, which is why it hasn’t happened in this century, but I would have preferred seeing new visions instead of writers contorting themselves to reinvent shows created during the Cold War. As fans on this very board have said, it’s tiresome for some villain to kidnap Marlena every year and not have John think, “Hmmm, I haven’t heard from Doc today. Maybe she’s been abducted again?!?!” It’s all very boring.
  8. Such a waste. I remember that USO match in which he had Fed on the ropes and just didn’t take it seriously enough to go for the win, which he had in hand.
  9. So it wasn’t just Maria playing out of her mind. I saw Kontaveit beat Kvitova in two tiebreaks. Now she’s a dark horse. Monfils had FOUR match points against Goffin just now and just Monfils’d them away.
  10. I heard that the Fognini-Edmund match was bizarre. Lots of momentum shifts and MTOs, but Fognini came out the winner. Was Karolina really that bad against Sharapova? That scoreline 😯 Seems like the Serena/Maria match is looking almost certain (still awaiting the Serena/Goerges match), and many are scared that this will be Maria’s best chance at a victory over Serena, who is struggling with movement, in 14 years. We do know Serena always brings it 500% against Maria, form be damned, but I would hate to see the doper gloating smugly over finally beating Serena in almost 20 tries. Mugu is really rolling this tournament. Giorgi put up a fight, but Sloane came through.
  11. I thought she did pretty good work in scenes with The Stafford and Finola, so worth checking out IMO.
  12. Thanks! I’ll just put those dates on my radar.
  13. When are Kelly Kruger and Lauren Woodland supposed to be back?
  14. Really, that’s all I want from a soap. And it’s shocking how rarely soaps really given it to us, at least in the past few decades. I was watching the much-heralded Eden rape storyline from Santa Barbara, and, while much of it was done well, I was stunned at how little her story involved her family beyond Cruz. Made it far less compelling than it could have been.
  15. Just mentioned in the other thread that Molly Burnett jumped into emotional scenes as Maxie without missing a beat. Of course, it helps that she’s done it before, but she didn’t even need much time to ease in.
  16. Thanks! On paper, that’s a decently balanced canvas in contrast to B&B.
  17. Molly Burnett is stepping into some heavy-ish material without missing a beat.
  18. I think a lot of this will be happening relatively soon, but zzzzz. Not particularly enthusiastic about this show right now.
