Is Peter the Problem?

Straight to the point – Peter is getting tiresome. He loves all the girls. He believes all the girls. He believes in all the girls. He so believes in all the girls that even when they screw up (which is quite often), he believes it’s his fault. Which, of course, is because he loves all... Continue Reading →

What a Fanasco

ESPN’s Michael Smith and Jemele Hill used to do a shtick called “Doin’ Too Much” which featured sports fans, uh, doing too much - and looking silly as a result. That’s the way I felt about Monday’s episode – that the producers were trying to do too much. It felt like there were hours of... Continue Reading →

It’s Not Over ’til It’s Over

My Daughter Cassandra’s (MDC) friend RM[1] came over for the second week in a row  – and so it’s official, I now have hosted Bachelor watch parties plural. Is there a badge or ID card for that or anything? The big themes from this week were the Hannah B./Peter Thang [HBPT] and Alexa’s fabulous hair.... Continue Reading →

Unfinished Feelings?

A three hour show. Or what I like to call a Two-Bottles-of-Bubbly type situation. Just sayin’. [Cue I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Frank Sinatra version only] Arrrrrrghhhhhhhhh. I had half the blog written in my head until Hannah B. showed up at the end and her and Peter got seriously all up in their... Continue Reading →

A Satisfying (and rational) Ending

Like Chris Harrison, I have lots of questions but unlike Chris Harrison I'm not going to breathlessly shout them at you. What if two people who’ve known each other for a few days didn’t have to get engaged according to a primetime TV calendar? What if two people with a mutual attraction simply decided to...

Shot Through the Heart

IT’S LIKE NOTHING YOU'VE EVER SEEN BEFORE!!! OK, Chris, you overcame my skepticism. I will finally agree with one of your (typically empty) breathless proclamations and not in a snarky way. Tonight was surprising and even quite captivating. We began with The Search for Colton in the Portuguese countryside with a missed opportunity to have... Continue Reading →

Everybody’s In Their Feelings

[Scroll down if you want to see who I think the next Bachelorette is.] The Women Tell All (and its far less interesting associate Men Tell All) follows a familiar pattern: Scenes from Bachelor franchise history (gotta keep building that brand!). Insane free for all where the contestants get to rekindle their bad feelings about... Continue Reading →

He [bleep] Jumped The Fence

Take cover, boys and girls! We’re gonna cue up The Gap Band You Dropped A Bomb On Me and put it on auto-repeat. I’ll let you know when it’s safe to come back in for normal viewing, probably shortly after verification that Chris Harrison has retrieved a shell-shocked Colton roaming around the Portuguese countryside. Let’s... Continue Reading →
