Worst "Stars" cast yet, the producers had to resort to tier-3 actors, some of whom are still trying to make bank on their minor character from the 90s. There just had to be many discussions that started with "I swear if we don't get so-and-so then we are doing another season." Unfortunately, that person never prevailed and we have this pathetic set of "stars" we have to endure because your wives, like mine, make you watch it for the dancing, ugh.
He speaks very well for a young actor. If I didn't know he was young, I would assume he was older.
This season seems out of whack to me so far. Much of last season was spent on the DA making a case against Jax and in the final episode he agreed to turn himself in. So has she (the DA) just gone away - is that all over without any resolution or reason? And it seems out of character for the club - particularly the more 'level-headed' guys like Bobby and Chibbs - to be going along with Jax's murder/rage spree, endangering the club. The only reason Bobby came back was because he saw that Jax was serious about taking the club in a new direction. It all seems really disjointed so far.
I like the poster. But for sure it looks like Caroline is end up alone with no men besides her and the single men are out there on their own. Elena and Stephan holding hands mean that tey are suporting each other for the loss of Damon so maybe they are running to look for help to bring them back from wherever they are.Havent you all noticed that there are more men than women on the main cast of TVD? I mean there is always the same women Bonnie, Caroline and Elena. But new men are being added to the main cast, like Enzo and Alaric this season. Why dont Julie Plec have a way to add a new female to join Caroline, Elena and Bonnie.I do not mean another doppleganger cause we had of those enough already but a new vampire female character so it can be at least 4 women and not always the same 3.I would like another female vampire to be on this show, things can get interesting
I liked the poster , it's different this time ,everyone seems running and I loved that Mystic Falls clock tower in the poster . I think Elena and Stefan together to stand by each other after Damon's death or because they're going to work together to find away to bring Damon and Bonnie back , but nothing romantic for sure.
Favourite scene: Wendy and Nero. I laughed so hard when Wendy suggested they tell the school she was the nanny and Nero was the gardener. Least Favourite: Any scene with Juice. What is wrong with that boy? Gemma gives him an out and he calls Chibs, even though he doesn't say anything. To top it off, he goes back to Wendy's place! WHY?! It's like he wants to die. If that's the case, just walk right up to Jax and say "Kill me"
If married on 7/6 I feel they may be signaling end of Castle at seasons end being as they are contracted for 7 years. I would be sad to see it end as all must.
I think that Stefan and Elena are together to deal with the losts of Damon and Bonnie. For me, they both moved on from their history. Elena looks so desperate in the promos and Stefan is with another girl to forget his pain.
Initially, calling this a postmodern love story didn’t make much sense to me. I am used to think of postmodernism in terms of the arts, literature, and philosophy. But, postmodernism is skeptical of traditional models that claim to be valid for all groups and that could apply to marriage. Neal and Grace started in what seemed to be the traditional marriage with the traditional roles for husbands and wives. Now Grace is questioning that model. She wants to redefine their roles. She wants more independence and freedom. She feels confined. When she gets drunk and the Neil wants to take her home she responds sarcastically with, “where I belong?” When Neil gets upset about the nude photo, her response is, “So I need your permission?” Grace seems to resent Neil for the years she lost raising a family and making a home (would a loving wife and mother consider them lost years?). And if so, why would she blame Neil. He has supported her in everything except the nude photo and he eventually even accepted it. There must be more to the story that I am not seeing.

Exactly. You could have saved me a lot of typing. :-)
I did see the clip. That she went to therapy before learning that Neil knows is a good sign. It also helps fill in the gaps of where she has been when people have assumed she must be off with Simon. I think what you said below nailed it. Her self esteem has suffered greatly over the years. I think men naturally assume that a beautiful woman understands she is such, but if Neil put work first (in her eyes) then it makes sense. One of the major issues between men and women is that men think doing odd things like putting air into his wife's car tires shows that he loves her. To her she sees him avoiding spending time with her and fiddling with the car. Communication between the sexes is extraordinarily tricky.
My response is: there are 18 years worth of their lives we know very little about. We don't know that Neil was always supportive of her having a career. Perhaps his idea of a mother was one who raised their child from home. There is far too much we don't know to assume anything about Grace's actions throughout the years (not working, etc.).
Thank you for your insight. Even your last comment has me reflecting on my life and making me question myself. That's what is so amazing about this program. It's outrageous and entertaining but more importantly, I think it's had a incredible effect on people because it started a "conversation" on these issues and made people question their relationships with their significant others.
Have you seen the clip? I'd be curious to hear your opinion. I suspect that the majority of the other posters are men and am curious as to a woman's opinion about Grace and her therapy session. Thank you for your work. I have found your reviews insightful and entertaining.
The therapy session is a good sign. But (there always seems to be a but) the muddy shoes are troubling.
I suspect that this show struck a chord was a lot of men here, maybe the women also, but they haven't been as verbal about it. Somewhere along the way, I said that I basically was Neil and on the communication issue, a lot of men see putting overtime in at work as an act of love.
You're kidding right?
Why wasn't Grace able to work from home all these years ? Was it that she was just plain lazy and liked the good life and times to much, she sure had the opportunity with the schooling before getting married so seems to be a big gap on commitment in marriage.
Like why didn't she finish her education before getting married, or get married and finish her education before starting a family? Was Anika planned... My guess she is rethinking a lot of her earlier decisions.
I don't personally know of anyone who's delighted by the new poster. It was a huge letdown.
So what kind of poster you had in mind or what character you wish the poster need to have?
I'd rather the front three were Oliver, Diggle and Felicity. I don't like that Diggle was pushed to the back. That alone would have improved the poster, but overall, it's just not very dynamic.
