Marquel for Bachelor

By now, 99% of you Bachelorette viewers know that Marquel was one of three guys sent home by that lunatic Andi on the most recent episode.

(Not my photo. Rights unclear.)

I crossed out the lunatic part but between Marquel and Eric, I have real questions about her judgment. Although maybe she and I should be friends: we would never fight over men. Continue reading

[Un]happy Monday

Why unhappy? There’s no Bachelorette airing tonight. Boo hoo. Some of my Twitter friends are surely rejoicing, TBH.

[In all seriousness, I’m eager to watch Diane Sawyer interview Hillary Clinton.]

One thing I won’t miss: Bachelorette Andi saying “STOP.” In case you haven’t noticed, Andi says this word a lot.

Last week’s episode with Eric’s departure was rough. It’s hard not to think “what if?” about his premature exit and later, untimely death.

In happier news, Bachelor in Paradise is in production and I’m excited to see more of a particular yet-to-be-announced cast member. More on that soon…

 

Late to the Nashville party

Do you watch the TV show Nashville?

Via IMDB

I tuned in part way through season 2 and although it was clear I had missed a lot of characters’ backstory, I liked Nashville a lot.

On a recent flight, I had the chance to go back to the start of the show thanks to in-flight DIRECTV. I plowed through four or five episodes beginning with the pilot. I was hooked!

But getting caught up was hard. No Hulu, no Netflix and ABC.com only offers a few episodes free. My options for seeing the episodes were Amazon (not included in Prime) or through Verizon FioS for $1.99 per episode (SD; HD is $2.99 and I’m too cheap for that).

Given that ratings for Nashville have not been spectacular, one would think that ABC could throw would-be fans a bone. But no.

Anyway. I am caught up now and looking forward to more Juliette bitchface. Continue reading

Warning: It’s Juan-uary

The Bachelor returns tonight. And said Bachelor is Juan Pablo Galavis. This guy:

Sexy right? Desiree didn’t get him. Or maybe it was that she couldn’t say his name and thus didn’t see a lasting romance as possible with him.
