Anyone read the book?  It was very popular when it came out.

I did. I really enjoyed it.

Oddly enough, when I tried to read the sequel, The Angel of Darkness, I got to about the middle and stopped. I don't know why. I did not dislike the book. I just ... stopped, and never went back to it.  :">

L&O: SVU, the plotline with Olivia's son takes a turn.

The stand alone plot line involved a man being castrated in a hotel room.

I've watched a couple episodes of 9JKL. It feels like it's trying
to find it's footing. Hope it does, it's got a good cast. Mostly, I
just remembered one peripheral character who is not so good.

Kind of interesting to watch Mariska Hargitay and her husband (Olivia's lawyer) acting together.

At least, I guess they're still married. ... Hollywood. ...

He gets around. He's also Erin Reagan's ex-husband on Bluebloods.  ;D

And he hawks laundry detergent.  :laugh:

Rather interesting and timely episode on L&O, SVU last night, though I think it wasn't the first time they covered that ground. I think the big difference was the bullying angle.

I see occasional episodes of Project Runway because i have friends that watch it and i enjoy it, but I haven't heard about the twins this season. I don't have the channel it's on any more.


They are annoying  as  hell.   :laugh:   Although they have both been voted out as  of last week.




They are Shawn and Claire Buitendorp and told people they could remember who is who because "Shawn shaved, Clair hair".   

While there was no rule about designers helping each other, these two  took it to the extreme, constantly working at each other's tables to help each other  finish designs.   Finally a challenge came for pairs, and they choose each other, and were in the bottom.   Because they worked together so much, the judges couldn't decide who was worse designer, so they had to have a special challenge against each other to determine who should be sent home.

After 20 minutes,  Shawn had nothing put together, and Claire had a dress halfway done, so Shawn called Tim Gunn in, admitted defeat, and left so her sister could stay.

The very next challenge, Claire won.  However,  other designers revealed that Clair had measuring equipment in her room, and was measuring her own clothes and using those measurements in her creations, which was against the rules, and she was told she had to leave.

And now, the show is 'twin drama' free.   :laugh:

I guess nobody here is watch AHS:Cult. It's getting really interesting. Tuesday's episode included flashbacks to Andy Warhol's late sixties NYC with Lena Dunham playing Valerie Solanas.  Here's a recap:

Also, I'm actually enjoying the new Will & Grace. I still find Karen's voice annoying, though.  As one gets older, high pitch voices become harder to understand. Has anyone been watching?

I haven't watched it (Karen's voice being one reason ... ), but I saw a commercial for it where Jack finds out he's a grandfather, and that suggested it might be worth checking out.

I'm most of the way through Mindhunter on Netflix. Not my usual thing at all but Iím watching it (in daylight hours) for Jonathan Groff, and I must say itís extremely gripping. I just have to make sure I donít think about it in the middle of the night.

Yes, one of his first roles since "Looking"  It got and has my attention.  I've been watching an episode here and there but it's a great look at how the whole catch a criminal you gotta get into their head came to be.. damn interesting so far.  I think there's only 8 episodes and it already has been renewed.   V.

Oops. Sorry. I hope I didn't spoil it for you, Lyle.

Jack as a grandfather?   Oh Lord.  :laugh:
