Big Brother, Ballers & Masters of Sex
THE ANSWER TO FRIDAY'S TRIVIA QUESTION: The final "Where Are They Now" question on Friday didn't live up to my expectations, but hey, they can't all be winners. I've been coming up with trivia ideas for 3 years. Not an easy thing to do. Anyway…Singles was the movie. Matt Dillon currently stars in Wayward Pines, Kyra Sedgwick starred in The Closer, Bill Pullman's last Primetime program was 1600 Penn and Campbell Scott starred in Royal Pains.
FIRST FIVES: Dana Moscato, Mike O'Dea, Elke Raskob, Kathy Connelly & Rachel Snyder HONORABLE MENTION: Dani Jackel

THE SHOWS  Big Brother
  • Liz was a little too happy when she won the HOH. 
  • Audrey's bun is getting bigger and bigger and starting to look like a turban
  • I wish Julie would tell us where the twins go and what they are allowed to do when they are not in the game. 
  • Liz voted for to evict James instead of Jeff last week I sure hope Austin doesn't find out. That's when we'll see Judas set loose
  • WHAT WAS UP with Steve talking to himself like a mental patient 
  • Audrey should insist on being shot from the front only. She totally likes her former male self from the side. 
  • What grown woman calls her boyfriend a "poopy head" SHELLI…that's who! 
  • Apparently Clay isn't that bright and his "poopy head" gf dissed him pretty bad when she said attention to detail wasn't Clay's strength
  • Loving Dr. Detective John's crown #9 tooth theories. He IS right which is what's SO hilarious. 
  • Shelli got a letter from her dog? Maybe she and Clay ARE a perfect match. 
  • Who's more annoying? Shelli or Liz/Julia…discuss amongst yourself
  • BB Musical just proves that you will pretty much do anything when you're bored to death
  • James enjoyed his hot dog sandwich much more than the Tony de-nominated BB THE MUSICAL
  • What was up with Steve and the ironing board? First talking to himself and then the ironing board. I think he's gonna crack soon. 
  • Loved Austin's blood red nail polish. Do you think it was an Essie or an OPI color? 
  • Vanessa looks like one of those sad clown paintings that scare the crap out of me. 
  • I don't know if Meg calling Clay a "lady girl" is a good idea with a transgender person in the house
  • Johnny Mac as the pawn AGAIN? He's gotta get a pair and just say NO! 
  • I hate people not wanting to get blood on their hands. Why come play the game at all then? 
  • Nominees: James & Jackie and Jason & Dr. Detective John the Dentist
  • Best line of the night: DDJtD "If the game was called "Get Nominated" I'd be winning right now." 
  • It's not "we'll get to that bridge when we cross it" It's we'll get to that bridge when we come to it. It's about making a decision whether or not to cross the bridge or not…UGH these players are so f'ing stupid
  • Audrey ughhhhhh. She is SO HORRIBLE AT THIS GAME!!! 
  • I hate the twins
  • So I'm guessing there are some grunge fans on the games committee. 
  • BB world of GRUNGE: Screaming trees, Soundgarden Smashing Pumpkins, Alice in Chains and Nirvana. I appreciated the theme. 
  • I'm starting to enjoy the air guitar thing
  • Bummed that Jackie and James won the BOB. Quite the comeback. 

Ballers 
I think I'm going to officially call it quits with this one. I honestly feel like the show is just an excuse for a bunch of guys to throw parties with strippers and have HBO foot the bill. I enjoy The Rock, but all he really does is clean up everyone's mess. Why would he even want these ungrateful, idiots as clients? I'm sure there are a lot of super wealthy people in Miami that would be even more impressed by his football days than all the players he's trying to court and they'd probably appreciate how much he cares about them unlike. I just don't get it. Nothing EVER happens. Pretty sure Spencer (The Rock's character) hasn't signed anyone at this point. Just a lot of sexting, strippers, stripper poles and trouble. Masters of Sex is on at the same time as Ballers on Sunday nights. I'm deleting my Ballers Season Pass. There...I said it. Now, I just have to do it.  Masters of Sex
They sure know how to accelerate time on this show. Talk about a fast forward. Virginia got pregnant, almost had an abortion, got fake married and delivered a baby girl all in 58 minutes. Lizzie Caplan lucked out, only having to wear the fake belly for one episode. I hear those things aren't that comfortable. I had a hard time believing that the baby is Virginia's ex and an even harder time believing that he would agree to the fake marriage, and that Bill and Libby would stand up for them both. The Shah of Iran and his wife were having some trouble conceiving and unfortunately Bill couldn't help them. The Shah's wife, an Amal Clooney look-a-like had some intense insights on love triangles as she would be cast aside so her husband could be with a woman who could produce an heir. She explained that no matter how much she loved her husband and her husband loved her, he would always love the mother of his child more and she couldn't bare to stand by and watch. Bill didn't buy into her theory and tried to be there for Virginia as she was going through labor without an epidural. He stayed as long as he could but when it was time for the big moment, Virginia delivered her baby girl alone. She apparently recovered from it all pretty quickly and was able to get up and walk to the maternity ward glass window to see her little girl.  Bill left the hospital and looked at his book aka his baby, through a storefront window.  Libby looked exceptionally beautiful in this episode and Betty looked a lot like Goldie Hawn from her Laugh-In days. Man they shoved a lot of story into one episode and yet they did it with great pacing. Thumbs up...see...I don't need to watch Ballers when I have this at 10pm on a Sunday night.
THE OTHER STUFF 
-I watched 2 good movies this weekend. The Duff and The Wolfpack. They couldn't be anymore different but they were both great in their own way. The Duff was a fun high school movie starring Mae Whitman who played Amber in Parenthood and The Wolfpack is a documentary about these 6 brothers who were pretty much held captive in their NYC apartment for most of their lives. All they had were movies. I recommend both of them. They are both available on Amazon Prime.
Monday's Trivia Question: I'd like to thank WWTM Loyal Reader, Karen Feldman for help with last weeks trivia and this weeks. Today's question: Name the CSI Miami theme song.
