    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend S4 - We Want to Be Here [spoilers]

    So recast Rachel Bloom. If this is a deliberate move to make a point, have balls and recast Rachel Bloom too. Anyway, I disagree with it. Just because somebody changes and resolves issues they don’t become a different person. Their past issues, past vibes and personalities are still part of them, these things don’t disappear without trace and 30 year old people don’t get completely new personalities after spending two years in a new town and conquering alcoholism. If it was a must-move because santino Fontana couldn’t be bought to return to the show, I can understand, but I still think the casting choice was a bad and I still think they should have reconsidered Rebecca’s endgame without Santino Fontana, if it was going to revolve around Greg.

    The Good Place S3 - heaven is a place on Earth (spoilers)

    I understand that the judge is trying to stay away from the earth, I just think it’s really exaggerated to say that someone who has no knowledge of the world and suddenly drops in Italy will only see how crappy the world is. I mean did the judge not smell flowers and eat pasta and view ancient architecture and see old married couples smiling at each other and birds drinking from fountains and all? Yeah, that’s my issue with repetitiveness. We are going full circles without resolving anything. And maybe we introduce a couple more moral dilemmas just to make things even more impossible to resolve. And I still don’t get why we went from comedy to a moral philosophy cobweb in two seasons. I mean I know it’s jsut me but the more they try to draw dramatic conclusions about modern society’s issues, the less entertained I am.

    I thought it was, and I was expecting this episode to start showing that. But the judge returned saying the earth is a terrible messed up place with no understanding of its good parts. That was surprising and I’m still unsure where they are going with it. And I found it a little disappointing that their solution to examine how good people are is putting them in a simplified lab environment in a - who would have guessed- fake neighborhood, as if that would solve the complexity of the real world. I mean a huge part of science remains theoretical for that very reason, so many fields of social science (and philosophy too?) have all these models and semi-functional methods because they were created through taking away variables. Look at Chidi, sure if you take away half the variables, he will make good decisions easier, but in real life you can’t take away half the variables. Sure, you can exclude them from your evaluation, and more people will get into the good place, but it doesn’t ultimately make the earth as a whole a “better place”.
  4. I watched The Little Mermaid (2018). It’s easily the dumbest of all the similarly terrible live action remakes of fairy tales. Nothing ever happens for any other reason than by accident. There’s no consistency within the plot and we really don’t learn anything about any of the characters. The acting is atrocious, the characterization is laughable, there’s no message, no atmosphere and really no visual value either. It’s just 90 minutes of fifth class early 2000s low-rate cable television nonsense. Imdb rated it 4/10, Which is overly generous.

    well isn’t it a good thing then that the thread isn’t about me and my posts?

    I can’t get over the new Greg. It’s so so bad. I don’t like the baby storyline, it was resolved way too quickly and I don’t see why it was necessary to get into it in the first place. Paula’s party was cute.

    It was boring and repetitive and I really don’t feel the whole the earth is a terrible place and people are terrible for buying that particular tomato.

    @Meera of Tarth I’m sorry about the hard time you are going through. Hope this school situation resolved itself and you can complete the class. I hate it when this happens in a group work... :/ so unfair and unethical to do this to your group. I have no idea how people do it. And thumbsuo on the shopping, @Buckwheat hope you found some nice items. I adore 3/4 lengths things, but unfortunately I’m the kind of person who gets cold very easily and gets warm equally easily so the only time I get to wear these things are the narrow 3-3 weeks we have for autumn and spring. At my end, there’s only annoying news. I seem to have a full blown flu. I did somehow get through this workday and performed better than when I’m healthy, but as soon as I got home I totally crashed and shivered with cold and pain for an hour and a half before I finally found a comfortable position and stabilized to an I feel like crap level. Waiting for dinner right now, I don’t think I’m going to work next week.

    I met my mom for dinner at a weird Russian-gone-vegan bistro where I cried in public. But I do feel a lot lighter and better emotionally than in the past two weeks. On the downside, I’m sick as a dog physically - all that stress had to manifest itself in something. I kinda cough and I’m congested and I have sore throat. Blehh. Good luck with getting new winter stuff, @Buckwheat and @Bittersweet Distractor It’s not wrong, I always feel bad for being a grownup whenever I walk through Zara kids. Baby girl stuff is tooooooo adorable.

    Weirdly I have downsized my coat collection in the past couple years. At some point I found that even though I had multiple coats for multiple occasions, I always wore that one thick and cozy coat and that other elegant one if I went to someplace special. So that’s basically what I have now. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about autumn/spring coats. Unpredictability and speed and the stress they result in. I don’t enjoy working at light speed not knowing my schedule for more than 2-3 days ahead.

    It was steadily below 0, since NYE here, so 6C felt kinda mild compared to that. It was just the wind that got to me. I’m currently at the hair salon and I can’t wait to go home. I’m really tired and stressed and I can’t believe that I came back to the exact same madness at work that we struggled with before Christmas. I mean this doesn’t help my mental and physical health at all. And I’ve been doing great at leading a healthier lifestyle for two full weeks now

    Yeah i really feel that curling up with a hot water bottle mood. I’m very hormonal and I hate everything and everyone, to be honest. It’s also cold and I didn’t bring a scarf. Or, it’s not cold, it’s 6C, I’m cold.

    Ah I’m sorry about your week. How is mini Sith doing? Now that she is almost grown up. @HelenaExMachina I’m really sorry to hear about your grandma’s health issues. And the pup’s too. Hope they are doing okay. And good luck to you with your exams! The first week of the new year wasn’t particularly grand for me either. On the upside, I have every reason to expect things to improve next week. I kinda need to find a new job in the not too far future. But I’ve been quite good with cooking a lot at home and not ordering takeout and eating healthier. Aside from chocolate. I can’t give up chocolate. I’ll work on that at a different time. Now I’ll keep the focus on home-made meals.
