  1. That’s always the scene I send when people say Susan can’t act. That was a scene with a lot of shifts and nuances that had to be hit just right to work, and she handled it superbly. I mean, of course, seen with the scenes with Bev McKinsey as Alex on GL, it pales in comparison, but who was as brilliant as Bev? Not many. She was a master. I watched it again and got emotional, especially when she was talking to Henry.
  2. I just wish they’d kept the connections to Mamie more active. She absolutely should have been a factor in Lily’s life over the years. If Mamie came on in some capacity, it would make sense to keep Lily or Nate. She can’t be a matriarchal figure to dust, after all. If they don’t like Brooks Darnell, recast Nate.
  3. That was 1996, I believe, after Erica fell from a scaffolding during a shoot and became addicted to painkillers. (Michael Sabatino, the guy looking sheepish in the crowd, played her doctor/dealer/lover Jonathan Kinder.) She was high as a kite while giving that speech, which is why she was having those paranoid delusions. I LOVED that speech. Can you imagine how many memes that would have produced if it happened 20 years later?
  4. It’s so obvious this show doesn’t care about Laura or Lulu. This whole incident is just a plot point in a series of plot points. And as such, I’m finding it hard to care. And Maxie doesn’t give a fùck. She looks so unbothered mooning over Faison Jr. I know she and Lulu have had a complicated relationship, but my God. And the scene at Nathan’s grave would have been a great opportunity to tie in her feelings about Lulu. This show just leaves so much money on the table.
  5. Why is Sonny Laura’s sole support during this crisis? Couldn’t they have booked Jackie Zeman or Kristina Wagner or anybody else for a couple of days?
  6. That’s all of the POCs, barring Neil, who has been generally sidelined. Not sure if you’re considering Lily. Would you rebuild the Winterses with Neil and Moses perhaps? Bring back Keemo over Peter Bergman’s dead body? It’s a tough call with such a damaged show with such weak or ruined characters, but I’m interested.
  7. Who would you have killed? I’m assuming a couple Rosaleses and perhaps a Summers Romalotti Abbott Newman?
  8. LOL at thirsty journalists swarming celebs for pictures at award shows.
  9. I don’t think that guy’s saying that Tsitsipas has trouble with the tennis balls; he was claiming Nadal did in Toronto. But his tweet was in response to a guy who said something similar to what you’re saying: Tsitsipas and his team were overconfident due to how well he played Nadal late in that second set in the Toronto final and failed to do the necessary scouting in Melbourne, a totally different court and a different Nadal. But not sure how much difference it would have made.
  10. Too bad not much Y&R exists on YouTube. Lots of good stuff to post from the early ‘90s. This was fantastically creepy when I watched it as a kid, but it might not have the same impact out of context. AMC fans will remember Aunt Grace kidnapping Mimi and Derek’s baby Danielle after Mimi, a police officer, killed Grace’s son in the line of duty. Grace wasn’t evil so much as deeply broken and unstable. (RIP Lynne Thigpen, who had a lovely voice.)
  11. Some speculation about Tsitsipas/Nadal:
  12. Not shocking given the player involved (Serena), the drama of the match, and, yes, the fact it didn’t air at 3:30 am on a weeknight.
  13. Faulkner

    Doctor Who

    Matt continues to kill it.
  14. I definitely think she’s telling a lot of truth (anyone who has followed Whoopi’s career know Mo’Nique’s comments cut DEEP), but, damn, incinerate those bridges, girl.
  15. The length is an issue with the Garland, Streisand, and Gaga versions. It’s definitely a story that can be told in under two hours, I agree.
  16. Weezer were popular when I was in junior high/high school, so they were important to me as a budding music fan. Well, in the wake of their viral remake of Toto’s “Africa” last year, they’ve released an album of covers, and it has drawn an unusual amount of ire.
  17. And they don’t have a host and an opening monologue, so they should already have time available. But I bet they won’t cut their self-aggrandizing “Film Is Important!” montages. I found it a bit dull, especially the last half or so. Certainly not a patch on the Garland/Mason classic. But I enjoy “Shallow” enough, even with Gaga’s oversinging and the meh lyrics.
