  1. Y&R March 2018 Discussion

    That is what I think might happen. I think that Victor may end up in a coma for a bit and people will think that Jack was the one that pushed him. I think that line from Jack about how Victor should be dead, and Jack getting drunk/storming off will come back to hurt him. I could see JT pretending like he didn't have anything to do with the fall and letting Jack take the blame. Victor might also end up with amnesia when he wakes up from the coma as well.

    Today when Victor was confronting JT, JT told Victor that he blamed him for Colleen's death. Maybe that will be used to help explain why he's gone over the edge. I can understand why some viewers are upset about this storyline and why they feel like JT is being destroyed/thrown under the bus. I'm not sure if they are really going to do a good job explaining how JT became this person that he currently is. I wouldn't have minded if the writers had made this story a bit grayer and possibly allowed JT to survive it. I think they could have just had him act more controlling and anxious than anything and not let it turn physically abusive. I've seen situations in real life where someone is acting controlling/dominating to their significant other in ways that aren't necessarily abusive but still uncomfortable to see. Like a man constantly calling his wife's office demanding to talk to her or a woman always talking for her husband, etc... Situations like that where there is control/aggressive behavior going on, but not necessarily abuse. Maybe they could have had JT act mainly along those lines and chalk it up to him being stressed/anxious about his job and his life/career choices. That would made things tense for him and Victoria in a realistic way but not completely destroy his character. They could have Victoria ultimately end up dumping him and him end up getting counseling for his behavior, and have him take a break from work. That way he could have exited the show but still come back from time to time after he's worked on his issues. Regardless, though of how they end up explaining his behavior, I do think that Thad and Amelia are doing good acting in this storyline. I have been impressed by both of them.

    I thought Victoria's/JT's scenes were well written too. I thought those scenes were well written and that both Thad and Amelia did a good job in those scenes. I thought they came across as very realistic .I bought them as a couple in an unhealthy relationship that has turned abusive, even though Victoria doesn't fully realize that yet. The writers having her slap JT helped clouded her perspective of the situation and caused her to blame herself more than she should for what happened. It was like she was equating her behavior with JT's, even though JT has been worse and will end up being worse. And her also trying to use the idea of "honesty" to make their relationship seem better than what it is. She's acting like the way JT is treating her is mostly him being honest, when it is really controlling and abusive behavior. I also wonder in what other ways he might harm her physically. I wonder if he will flat out hit her or do other things like push her, or cause her to fall down somehow and injure herself without striking her. If he does the latter things, I could see him trying to spin those things as not being abuse. Maybe he will do something to her and try and paint it as an accident or something.
  4. Empire: Discussion Thread

    I enjoyed tonight's fall finale of Empire. There was quite a bit of action going on. I am liking this nicer, more improved version of Lucious. I like seeing him show genuine concern for Andre. I also liked seeing Trai Bryers get a chance to show off his vocals a bit. I knew he could sing in real life but wasn't sure if the producers would ever include him doing that somehow in the show. I had figured if they did, it would be by having Dre have some sort of fantasy of him singing. I am glad that the Lyons exposed Mama Dubois and that Hakeem got Bella back. Not surprised by how things ended with Angelo and am interested in seeing how Jamal deals with the fallout from that. I am also interested in seeing what happens with unhinged Claudia and Lucious.
  5. Empire: Discussion Thread

    I just kept thinking prior to those very last scenes and that reveal that she is playing him and trying to trick him into confessing. I never trusted her but I didn't expect that ending. I agree that twist at the end of tonight's episode with Dre/Pamela was definitely "wow". It made me think a bit of the Twilight Zone when it was happening. I thought that Trai did a really good job playing those scenes. Poor Andre. I am glad that his parents are being there for him. I like this more sensitive Lucious. I hope he keeps this part of his personality as he reconciles his memories of his past. It's time for them to really handle Mama Dubois. I think that they might really dig into her past and expose all the dirt they can find on her and her family publicly. I could see them really embarrassing her publicly in front of her friends/associates and sullying her family's name and legacy. Maybe she's also backstabbing some friends/associates and they will expose that as well. They can make it so that no one will want to associate with her or the Dubois family.
  6. Primetime shows that were cancelled too soon

    Some shows I thought were cancelled too soon were Reunion on Fox: I loved this show and how it was about a mystery and tried to chronicle the life of six friends over 20 years. Unfortunately it only got like 13 episodes and only 9 of them were shown in the US before it was cancelled. Life on Mars (The American Version) (2008-2009) I thought this was another good show that dealt with different time periods that was cancelled too soon. And the comedy Out All Night (1993). I felt like this show should have fared better. It was modern for it's time and had a nice cast. If it had came a few years later maybe UPN would have rescued it, like they did In the House.
  7. This Is Us: Discussion Thread

    Sterling K. Brown just won Outstanding Leading Actor in a Drama Series for "This is Us". I am very happy for him. He does a wonderful job in this role, and I think this Emmy is well deserved. I am looking forward to Season 2 of this show.
  8. The Politics Thread

    I am glad that the citizens of Charlottesville chased away Jason Kessler. He is an evil racist coward, who can't take getting his comeuppance for the damage he has helped caused. Jason, Richard Spencer and others from this racist group need to be held accountable for the destruction they have caused. I hope they get chased all the way out of town.Their views and actions are disgusting and so is them infiltrating Charlottesville. Unite the Right thought they could try and take over in that smaller community but I am glad they are learning otherwise.
  9. Disney's: Raven's Home

    I wonder if this could partly be due to the show trying to figure out how to do a mixture of humor that works well with kids and adults .I think the way they have been juxtaposing jokes with Raven/Chelsea and then the kids is making some of the jokes fall a little flat. I think this show does a have a large adult audience. Who knows maybe more adults are watching this show than kids, lol. Hopefully, they will develop a nice groove in how they showcase humor with both the kids and adults. I also wish they would bring Devon back full time. I think he is needed on this show in that capacity. I think he has nice father-daughter chemistry with Nia and I liked seeing him interact with Raven. I wish they would have let him and Raven stay married. I think they could have worked as a married couple and would have worked better as a married couple than a divorced couple.
  10. Disney's: Raven's Home

    I enjoyed tonight’s premiere. I liked learning a little bit about what has happened with Raven/Chelsea over the last 10 years. I think it’s interesting to learn that Chelsea’s ex-husband is in prison for tax fraud. It sounds like he wasn’t really a good person and that people including Raven never really liked/trusted him. I wonder if he will show up once he gets out of prison and how Chelsea/Raven will deal with him.I look forward to seeing Devon next week. I want to learn why him and Raven divorced. I think it’s interesting that Raven feels more protective over Booker than Nia, and this is without knowing about his psychic abilities. I also think it’s interesting that the twins don’t know that Raven is psychic I am looking forward to when they find out about that and she finds out about Booker’s abilities. I also wonder if Devon knows about Raven’s abilities. I like the twins but I am really enjoying Chelsea’s son Levi. I am enjoying his chemistry/interactions with everyone on the show. And I think it’s cute and seems natural when he calls Raven “Auntie Raven”. He may end up becoming my favorite kid on this show.
  11. Victoria Rowell's Rich and the Ruthless

    lol at this preview. I think that show is supposed to be deliberately OTT. It is about a soap within a soap. I think that some of the parts in the preview that are OTT/cheesy/cheeky could be scenes from the "fake soap" in the show. Plus, I think that a lot of the characters playing the soap actors on the fake soap, are purposefully being written and played OTT. The characters acting corny, cheesy, diva-ish, etc... may very well be intentional. This might actually be okay once it's shown in full episodes. I might check it out if I can find it online.
  12. Underground

    Yeah $5 million is very expensive. I wonder how they may attempt to cut costs to save this show. They may have to change the way they tell stories on this show in order to bring the costs down some. Here is a suggestion I have regarding their storytelling that could help with the cost of the location shoots/re-creating locations: I think they need to have Rosalee/Noah reunited under one roof. They can put an end to Rosalee/Noah constantly being captured/set free/ and recaptured. It is probably very costly to shoot scenes with them constantly being taken/ spread around in various places. They should free Rosalee quickly from Cato so she can be with her family. I think it's time to have Rosalee/Noah "settle down". They can have Rosalee/Noah assisting Georgia or someone else in helping protect and hide runaway slaves. Or have them go up North to help/welcome slaves who have escaped. I think they need to be in a central location (like a safe house on the Underground Railroad or up North) where they can raise their son/James but still help/welcome runaways. They can be shown raising their family and listening to the stories/plights of runaways who have escaped plantations. They can even use flashbacks from certain runaways telling their stories about being on a plantation. They can use the same plantation site(just alter some things to make it look different for each story) to help tell these backstories, so they aren't using a lot of different locations sites. They can still show other main characters Cato/Elizabeth/Ernestine doing different things (though they should find ways to cut costs using their stories as well). But at least put Noah/Rosalee together in one central location. This could help them save money on costs. Also, I do believe that some people will stop watching WGN because of this. I saw people on Twitter say they weren't going to be watching the channel anymore. I really only watched it for Underground and a times a Chicago Bulls game.
  13. Disney's: Raven's Home

    Here a couple more sneak peaks of upcoming scenes. I am liking what I am seeing of the kids. They are cute, fun and they seem to have good chemistry with each other and Raven/Chelsea. Sneak Peak #1: Sneak Peak #2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGLdWwMFt8o
  14. Actress Fired From 'Kevin Can Wait'

    I think this is interesting, though unfortunate for the actress. I am a big King of Queens fan and have always enjoyed Kevin/Leah Remini's chemistry on screen. I haven't seen much of "Kevin Can Wait." But from what I have seen I didn't think that him and his wife on the show had much chemistry. I've seen a lot of other people say that as well. Though it does look like this did well in the ratings for a new show so there may be many people that will also be upset by this news. I wonder how they will get rid of the character and if they might actually have her die. It looks like her and Kevin's character were happy so they may not go the route of sudden divorce. I remember how they ended "How I met your mother" and how that really upset a lot of people. I wonder if they will also take a sadden turn with this character's exit. But regardless, I wish the actress the best, it does stink to be dumped after a year on show. Maybe she will land on her feet somewhere.
  15. Disney's: Raven's Home

    That would be nice if you got to see a taping of it. Also, I just read some articles where they mentioned that Devon one of Raven's ex-boyfriend is her ex husband/father of the twins. I would have rather it had been a different man altogether. I think that's more interesting and realistic, one reason because most people don't usually end up marrying a childhood boyfriend/(or best friend). But I will take it being him over Eddie. (Eddie and Raven always seemed more like brother and sister to me.) I never thought he was the cutest/most appealing of the guys that Raven crushed on/dated. But I saw a recent of pic of him and I think he's aged well. He looks like he slimmed down some as he's gotten older and I think that the shorter hair cut/facial hair suits him. I think he looks cute now. I also read that Chelsea is indeed a single mother as well and will be moving in with Raven and her children. They also said that the daughter has inherited her psychic powers, but in the previews it is the son that is shown having visions. I hope it's him instead of the daughter (and not both of them) I think it's more interesting if only one of them has psychic powers. The other twin can keep the one with the powers grounded and help calm them down if they get overly excited about a vision. https://moviepilot.com/p/ravens-home-father-devon-carter/4276963 https://moviepilot.com/p/raven-kids-nia-booker-thats-so-raven-reboot/4146603
