We’re back! Thanks for bearing with me last week–I don’t get paid to talk about the shows I love, and there are times when this show hits a little too close to home. That’s when I need to take a breather. But we’re back, and my all-time favorite doctor returns as well. And as Dr. Michael Tompkins explains at one point, “Hoarding is very complicated. There isn’t one thing that contributes to it; it’s many.” Continue reading
Previously: LONDONTOWN, Helena took care of business, Delphine took care of business, Donnie took care of business, Gracie took care of business and Mrs. S sang a song.
I’m not sure how I feel about this season ender. There’s good. There’s bad. It felt disjointed, like a lot of scenes but not a flowing episode. That said, I enjoyed most of it and I’m looking forward to seeing what they pull out for season four. Let’s get started, shall we?
Previously: Cosima resigned, Scott got fired, Helena and Gracie moved in with the Hendrix’s, Donnie picked a losing fight with stupid hair Jason Kellerman, the new cute clone Krystal got captured and switched for Rachel who escaped DYAD because Rachel schooled them all like a boss.
Hey. Can I just lay my head on your shoulder for a minute? Thanks. I’m just… no, I don’t need a drink of water, thank you. I’m just really really tired. Hmm, that’s not the right word, it’s… Fatigued? That’s it. I’m fatigued.
I bet you are, too. Or you should be. What are we doing, guys? What–
Screw it. Let’s do this. And for what it’s worth, I literally write these AS I WATCH, so enjoy the energy drop as you go. EDIT: I am not a book reader. I am deleting comments that mention details from the books. Don’t be that person. If you’re new, now you know: NO BOOK TALK. Continue reading
You all know the drill by now: Hoarding is a mental illness, and we’re respectful of the folks who put themselves out there for public scrutiny in their attempt to better themselves, their families, and their lives. It’s incredibly brave what they’re doing, and we here at HDJM want to encourage them (and anyone reading) on that path to wellness by being kind and thoughtful as they take that journey.
“This is never what I intended for my kids. Intellectually I know it’s wrong; I just don’t know how to fix it.” And that, in a nutshell, is the heartbreak of this disorder, isn’t it? Let’s meet Michelle. Continue reading
Previously: Helena and Mrs. S. punch and hug it out. Alison’s Mom is the worst but Alison and Donnie still managed to buy the soap shop Bubbles from her. Donnie brings the wrong envelope and almost gets his nose chopped off by the drug lord Pouchy. Cosima pretends to be Alison for a bit. Alison gives a terrific speech for school trustee. Rachel has to learn Agricola as a cover for her translating her Father’s secret code. Cosima doesn’t want to give Delphine her pee.
FUN FACT: I just learned that the titles for the Season 3 episodes are quotes from the farewell address of Dwight Eisenhower. Season 2 are all quotes from the works of Sir Francis Bacon and Season 1 are quotes from On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin. The more you know! *rainbow*
Previously: WE ALL LOST OUR DAMN MINDS (in the best of ways!). We open with Stannis’ men chin deep in the snow, but I guess Fire Crotch Mage doesn’t need a coat? She’s all casually wandering outside in the bitterness when there’s an attack on the camp, most of the tents going up in flames, and a HORSE RUNNING WHILST ON FIRE HORSEY NOOOOOOOO!
Raise your hand if you thought that was a dream? Now slap your face with it because THAT. JUST. HAPPENED. Come on, Davos. Come the hell on, Fire Crotch Mage! WHERE IS THE SECURITY BREACH!?
Welcome back, both readers and the original format of the show!
Reminder to any new folks: hoarding is a mental illness that affects entire families; we treat them and the illness with kindness. Many of the family members and hoarders read our boards and comment, so be decent and thoughtful with your words, please. Continue reading
Remember how in the very first episode we saw that scary ice man with the blue eyes? And then remember when everyone kept saying that Winter Is Coming? And then, then you guys? You remember how those creepy ice dudes showed up on horses and Samwell wet his pants? And then killed one? And then, like, we’ve been wandering in the desert for forty years? So “winter is coming” and “white walkers” are coming?
Frankly, I don’t think they exist.
