Penguin is because of how he walks.
You see it when hitchhiking and then the guys in the car say that to him - hey, anyone ever tell you that you walk like a penguin? - then he kills the passenger.

Don't forget that last season, Flowers told Skye that they were similar or related. All the blue alien stuff, and the fact that the injection didn't bother her makes me think she's one of the humanoid species in the marvel universe that was, I THINK, half Kree, half human.
Also explains " monster parents" and 084 status. I always liked Raina (and I think Coulson does too!) She worked closely with Ward... who keeps trying to tell her about her father (Skye). So, maybe being only part humanoid - more himan- is why Raina (and presumably Skye) can ne allowed to live, but not operate, the obelisk.

I think Regina IS doing that though. She knows it's her past and owns it. But she has done a lot of good too. I love that she was shocked at the *absurdity* of killing Marianne. That alone is a HUUUUGE growth. Regina is by far one of my favorite characters, if not the SOLE favorite character. Her growth is one of the main reasons I watch. I think her situations are so powerful that they SEEM like more focus than they are :)

I think you hit the nail on the head. That's why it doesn't FEEL like the others. The others we've all known, in some form or another, since we were kids. Frozen is new to us. Its ORIGIN story is very old, but not many of us knew it. Maybe that explains our lack of connection to it. All of the other stories are almost like a way that we're seeing, like Henry, how these stories of our childhood are real - like running into Santa on vacation at the beach in the middle of summer as an adult or something :).

I also was pretty impressed at how well Anna and Kristoff really captured the clip/mannerisms of their cartoon counterparts; Elsa, not as much. Again, cautiously optimistic. Maybe H&K are just getting the "here's the frozen connection stuff" out of the way so we can move on with a bigger story soon. Their parents were (in OUAT world) headed to the Enchanted Forest, so hopefully we find a good connection.

I did not know that, so thank you :)

ding ding ding! Exactly.
This felt truly force-fed. EVERY other OUAT character and plot has been developed organically, and made sense in the over-arching story (even if not obvious initially), but this seemed like an attention-grab - maybe out of fear of suffering the same fate as OUAT: Wonderland. I am cautiously optimistic that somehow Horowitz and Kiskis will spin this into gold (hehe) like they do with everything else, even if it was a crappy idea pushed down from the top.

Parenthood Season 6 Episode 1 Review: Vegas

Any chance it was 8 weeks and we heard it wrong? 8 weeks + the minimum 2 weeks for the test to have been positive = about 10 weeks or more - and put us right where the ultrasound says. I think Joel and Julia are only separated at the moment. Too fast. Also, anyone hating on Julia for blowing up her marriage - she made a small mistake that JOEL waaaay over-reacted to, and HE walked out. And Joel had his moments with Pete too, don't forget. He DID leave. He DID blow up the marriage. Julia was blind about Ed's feelings for her then when he reacted, sent him packing and told Joel immediately, but Joel didn't want to hear it. Joel was being a whiny little jerk. <end rant=""> :)

I know, I was thinking the same thing! Hellooooo, 2 daughters, one son.

I really perceived that to be in jest. In fact, I've said similar things to my husband before. I'm pretty sure had her husband said "why, yes, it is your masculine energy", her response would have been something along the lines of "too bad, get used to it" but far more colorful. She has a VERY dry wit and sometimes that gets missed by people (similar example "But I only have the one husband").
