  1. About 10 commercials from DAYS 1994 season compiled from YouTube. I forgot how hot Jonah was (that was his name right?)
  2. Add me in. I was a magazine buying addict back then but I erased all those articles out of my memory.
  3. The Kirsten Storms talk from Langan is definitely interesting in retrospect. How often do writer's do interviews where they do that (straight out saying this actor is playing against what I'm writing and I don't think I like it)?
  5. I don't remember hearing an explanation on the clips. These old clips ... so, so good. Don't know if the following has been posted because this thread is 84 pages long and I can't go over it page for page. 25th Anniversary Promos that ran on NBC. LOVE LAUGHTER MEMORABLE MOMENTS
  6. Watched Hope & Larry's completed wedding for the first time last night. This is wonderful. It's like a mildly funny but really sad funeral. That moment where Alice recognizes how devastated Hope looks at the altar and then starts tearing up herself *sniffle* I will say the scene with Mickey staring at Maggie is weird because Melissa's boyfriend is also in that frame looking like he's staring at Maggie with hungry eyes. (He's probably staring at Melissa). So the story behind the wedding is Larry and Hope are both being forced to marry each other or else repercussions to their loved ones (they beat the living chit out of Bo), family, career, etc. The guy who gets Hope the water is one of the goons.
  7. This reminds me of the real reason I quit in 2003, I just had heard the news JER was returning as head-writer and I wall all "I've done taken enough. Bye." I don't think she was full on possessed for the story. It was a tease to explain why she killed Alice, Doug, Caroline, Roman,, Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley. This was also a humorous find. Josh Taylor seems to have chemistry with a female and is not annoying in these scenes. Leann Hunley! TP is so much cuter in 2007. Stefano asking Hope on a date after trying to choke her and "learning" she's sleeping with Steve. I like when Steve is Patch-light. So who gave that trio the drugged wine? .
  8. The mini re-threads DAYS did while I was on my long hiatus, sigh; most of the re-threads were kind of funny though. For some reason this had me LOL the entire time I was watching it.
  9. Terrible? I have no love for F/O and I've actually not hated most of this season. The episode IMO said what Olivia and Fitz never really accepted but what each has known is true for the longest. Truths that they would let slip out from time to time. Olivia is spoiled. She's accustomed to being catered to. She grew up with her family making her feel powerful despite any of their quirks. Olivia has always wanted Fitz the easy way irrelevant of what that meant to Fitz, to Mellie, and to their kids. Olivia felt OBLIGATED to try almost because she felt bad for Fitz therefore the "yes, I am." I don't see anything wrong with Olivia being selfish to this degree, my issue only comes when she's treated as or/and treats herself as a sacred saint (her white hat self-torture) despite the pain she's helping to inflict to have things her way. IMO, last night's episode was Olivia accepting who she is and who she is not (NOT A WHITE HAT) and seemingly feeling like a weight had been lifted from her shoulders. She was not miserable. I honestly don't know how either Mellie or Fitz could still like her even a little, though, but both of them clearly do. This trio definitely have a weird Sister-Wives vibe where they "loved to hate" having a relationship together. Olivia never wanted to be with an unattached Fitz BUT it doesn't negate that Fitz started treating her like he treated Mellie because he felt she betrayed him and/or belittled him. He made her ornamental and it wasn't just for press. He was pissed and this is what he does to the women in his life when he's pissed. He systematically tries to destroy any power they feel they have to feel more powerful, to feel more good about himself. All of this was brought out last night. IMO, it was wonderful.
  10. This was an unexpectedly awesome episode. Olivia turning into FLOTUS Mellie. Olivia wanting to be FREE Mellie. Mellie turning into FREE Olivia. Mellie feeling sorry for FLOTUS Olivia. Olivia and Fitz turning into Mellie and Fitz. Mellie winning at life. Olivia and Mellie both quite happy to be free of Fitz. Fitz alone and sulking. It was an evolution. It was revealing. It was a revolution, too [abortion for a leading television female]. I think Olivia, Mellie and Fitz now all know that Olivia and Mellie REALLY are a lot alike, the good (movers and shakers, they both love or loved him) and the bad (selfish, love the taste of power a little too much). They also all now know that disappointed in you Fitz and the perimeters of the FLOTUS job is something close to hell. It's a suffocation. Though, Mellie stayed, Mellie had his kids, Olivia ran fast, and aborted his kid(s) w/o giving him a say, This should really shift dynamics between the three. If you drop the fact that Fitz is irrationally obsessed with Olivia, how do you ever get back from this on the O/F side? Not that I want them to get back from it.
  11. *through sobs* Damn, the irony that exactly one week later I would stand over my mother - as her blood pressure started to drop and as her heart began to stop beating - with my hand placed over her heart and tell her the same words. I guess I should have knocked on wood after typing that comment. The whole situation was eerily similar. Being awake for a period but completely trapped in your body, the doctors deciding to do the appropriate medical treatment only when it was too late... The main difference was my mother was in the so-called best hospital in New York.
  12. Episode got 9.55 million total viewers (kind of destroying Scandal which had 7.79). They also got a hefty 2.8 in 18-49 (kind of destroying Scandal, again, 2.3). F'in impressive for Season 11. GA also destroyed on Social Media. 600,000 plus tweet (Scandal had roughly 200,000). I've enjoyed most of this season so I like. It'll be interesting to see if they can sustain any of this next week with the league of angry fans Shonda has left behind.
  13. Rating are still sucking. GA beat Scandal by almost 2 million total viewers and half a full point in 18-49, TV Line is reporting Olivia will hire a new Gladiator soon. I believe they noted it will be a former guest star. I'm guessing it's going to be Cornelius. Good move - as OPA as a 3 person operation is pathetic - but without good writing and storytelling...
  14. The show is just not resonating and the PTB are not trying to write material that resonates. The excess of gory murders and body disposals. Why? One thing that did resonate (with me) was Mellie and Fitz not-quite-love-not-quite-hate RAGE relationship and now even that's gone. For what? I don't think Mellie and Fitz are going to hook up. I don't think we're going to even get a deeper explanation of why Fitz suddenly deeply feels like he has wrongs he needs to right with Mellie. So then, why even bother? They're not making either Fitz or Mellie look like competent politicians or legal minds as they run this story. <--- That is an ongoing issue with Scandal. The majority of the cast of characters is made to look ridiculously incompetent at almost everything for the fixer point. On top of that, most of the time even Olivia is being made to look like a fool (for B613). B613? Why? WTF cares about this chit? I don't care enough to even try to make sense of it. Not this would make any more sense than the Vice Presidents take-over of the White House. Why is it more important to make recurring player 1, 2 and 3 look competent? Why would a writer think making their lead characters some of the least rootable characters IS a wise show running decision? I don't get why Elizabeth is still on this show. Abby could have easily filled her current role and done it in a more authentic way. I guess it's good that Fitz is less ridiculously obsessed with Olivia than usual. I get that Olivia is traumatized but I'm just not feeling her. I'm not getting authenticity. I'm getting disconnect from all the characters and the majority of the relationships due to poor writing and storytelling.
  15. I had a feeling he was exiting the show with the low amount of episodes but recently there had been a lot of rumors about it REALLY happening (PD talking about spending the rest of the year focusing on racing). Then a few hours before the episode, a fan who got their Entertainment Weekly in the mail early leaked the information. I'm not a big Derek or MerDer fan and I was spoiled ... but the episode still made me cry. GA does death well. - That little girl realizing Derek was hurt: "you stay not dead, okay." She was phenomenal or that scene was phenomenal because my heart started racing and I almost burst out crying. . - Derek narrating his impending death. The music. I'm going to die because of their lack of experience. So haunting. As if Shonda wasn't causing her audience enough pain, she made us even more terrified of hospitals. - Meredith stopping the nurse from disconnecting Derek. I thought she was going to beg him to come back to her. Chasing Cars came on and.... Meredith instead telling him that they'll be okay and it's okay to go. I could not do that. Strong moment. Honorable Mention to the female doc in stupid-male-doctor hospital. She was awesome sauce too.
