You are spot on about The Affair. I have no idea where it's going, but there is a long-term plan set out for it and both sides are well represented. I've seen the first three eps of Homeland. It's quite different, but I stayed up until 6am the other night to see all of them. I couldn't watch just one.

I think this is a case where the new online Nielsen ratings will come in handy. The series is quite obviously marketed to The Fault in Our Stars audience and the majority will watch online. Mysteries will tank. Poor Debra Messing. She's living up to her name.

I'm watching an old episode of Grey's Anatomy right now and a woman explains her life as loving her husband very much, but parts of her were chipped away by her husband and she shaved off parts of herself so they could always fit together and be happy, and one day she looked up and didn't know who she was anymore. It's not for lack of love, but the changes she made to maintain it. I think the whole situation is very common, but many people don't want to talk about it.

I don't know what they key is. I know my mother didn't do anything wrong, but even so she was taken for granted. Her attempts to please my father often ended in arguments because he didn't notice. Therapy wasn't even an option on the table. In her second marriage, she's perfectly happy to tell her husband to bugger off when that happens. It took time, though. My dad died, by they way. Didn't end in divorce, although it would have been better for all of us if it had.

Is anyone her on Twitter? I'll be live tweeting tonight and Satisfaction is all up and ready to participate with us. Should we blow them away? I also noted that I would let you know about The Affair. I saw the premiere episode and it's a much different experience than this but will absolutely without a doubt drive discussion. I don't want to give too much away, but the storytelling is unique. I'm also reviewing Homeland, if you all watch. I'm trying to walk away from The Good Wife. I don't see it like others do and I get beat up a lot. ;-)

Congratulations to you for giving the women in your life the ability to stand on their own and not question their confidence. Allow me to assure you that is not the norm. My mom and dad were better friends than lovers. They kissed on the cheek and did perfunctory pecks on the lips. My sister and I grew up unsure of what it meant to be in love. My mother wasn't strictly forbidden from working, but it was made clear to her that she was best utilized at home, watching the kids and taking care of the house. Ironically, my grandfather worshiped my grandmother, but she rebuffed him more often than not. So, my father's in ability to show emotion was very confusing for my mother. She finally got a job in her 50s when my dad had cancer and he was too preoccupied to care. I was a beautiful girl. But you know one of the comments that sticks out to me more than any other? My father, after I had been ill for several days comment to me after I came down to dinner wearing makeup. "Finally! I have my daughter back." Now I don't fault him for how he was because he was raised in an odd home. But women and men perceive things differently. They just do. You're a doctor. I understand you're confused because Grace is feeling things you can't comprehend. We have not seen their entire marriage. Who Neil is today is not who he was before. We don't know if he was always working too hard and allowed his wife to feel neglected. We were not there. Me? I haven't been in a relationship for almost two years. I don't need one and being strong I tend to find men who try to take advantage of me. I was assaulted by one loser. Yes, he went to prison. But being strong can also be detrimental to women. Some men don't like it and you often don't know that until it's too late. If all men and women were created equal, that would be astounding. But we weren't and we aren't. We all process things differently. We all react differently. We can only use our own compassion to try to see things others are experiencing, even if they're only on TV.

Mmmmm. Salmon! Do you catch and cook it right on the river? Eat it raw? ;-) I love salmon and now I know my competition. I have to work extra hard tomorrow night. ;-)

Be nice, Miss Mystic falls. Should be Falls. We all make mistakes. :-)

I don't think the shows represent guilt, but rather this different side of herself. She thinks if she stops seeing Simon and wipes the mud off of the shoes, everything will go back to how it was. She's not reveling in the affair but perhaps who she became as a result. Or something. LOL

You're kidding right?
