  1. It was an okay  episode.  I never  thought about  the relationships like that, beyond the  storyline.  I did think  one thing, how stereotypical they made some of the gay characters, like Beebe from "Beware of The Dog"  and the  lesbian couple that found the body in "The Judge", and yes, the  "In Arcadia Ego", the  one woman being overweight  masculine. I never thought at all about the Frenchman in the Pilot episode, beyond how utterly  tortured he was to go so far over the edge in his thinking.

  2. I guess that  is as good an excuse as any! LOL    I see signs of another panic here in Florida, and for good reason.   I can't believe the stupidity of people.  I was in public, wearing my mask, and a guy comes up, tries to chat me up, and as usual around here, he's unmasked. After a few minutes, tells me he's been exposed to the virus.  I know him,  we chat occasionally.  He's  early 70's.   I know we blame the younger people for the spread, and yes they do, but where I am?  My exposure on a nearly daily basis comes from the over 50 crowd. Anyway he cannot conceive  the notion that he should be at home, in quarantine for 2 weeks.   He's flabbergasted  I tell him he needs to go get tested, then wait at home for the results and  stay home.  I tell him he's put me and everyone he's been in contact with, at great risk, because he's not masked and he's been exposed and is out possibly spreading the  virus.  He's clueless.  He doesn't get it.   Many people say,  if they get it and die, so be it.  But they don't seem to care about the people they will be killing in the process.

    I've been coughed on,  full dead on.  The person coughing  is completely unconcerned about where their germs are going.  This ticks me off at any given time, as  I believe people do know better, they just don't care. And they act like I'm a lunatic if I   so much as  speak up about it.  The cabin in the woods is a very  good place  right about now. Wish I had one!

     

    Anyway, the shelves still aren't stocked, I can't get disinfecting wipes, the bleach is some weird name,  can't seem to get masks, even though you rarely see people wearing them .  Toilet paper is in stock.  Food, meh, some good, pricey though.

    I'd settle for the Black cabin, as rickety as it was.....    Or even a tent by a lake.  Wait, no tent.  Bears and bigfoot...  How about a cabin or a sturdy camper?

  3. You've completely lost me  with all that well researched info!    You can put the episode wherever it suits you. August, wherever. That's the beauty of  what I call a stand-alone episode like Force Majeure.   Unlike Paper dove,  it's placement in any one spot isn't crucial to the  series timeline in general.

     

    It's like  Somehow Satan and Jose Chung.  Flexible to a point.  I  mean, Somehow Satan is an episode that could fit in any of the  seasons and not upset the timeline or storyline, except for Frank's hair color...Jose Chung is flexible to any given point in  Season 1 and 2. Force Majeure could fit into any spot in season 1 or 2 just about, IF you ignore the  newspaper date, and any other seasonal reference  that might be in the episode, like attire..

  4. I've got to look a couple of references up and I"ll get back to ya on the 1000 days they kept talking about.    As for Catherine, Jordan and Frank,  they moved out of the yellow house in season 2 .  Beware of the Dog was the last episode they lived there.  And  regarding Hoffman, Frank was  still new to the group and thought maybe Hoffman was someone he hadn't yet been introduced to.... it's very much a season 1 episode IMHO.

  5. It aired on  feb 7 1997, so I think, time wise, it is where it was supposed to be, to be current to viewers when it aired.  I don't think the thousand days was supposed to end in  2000 or in may 2000.  I'd have to watch it again to  findout if they gave a  date fro the end of the 1000 days.  Ayway, it's the 13th episode, and I like that number! 🙂

  6. My county  was  not in a hurry to   do any social distancing.   Escanbia.  And peopel still running around acting  silly.   Honestly some folks thnkthey are   social distancing and doing stay at home.... but they go to a friends house to get nails done, invite me   on a shopping trip to Wal Mart,  don't wear the mas or  gloves, or  stay HOME when not at work.  Let their kid go play with other kids at the park.

    But they will yell at another person  for not wearing a mask.  LOL!!!

    These are people I know, at the little store I fill in at from time to time.  And if I get through this without them infecting me, or them catching it themselves, I'll consider it a miracle. The owner still licks his finger to open a bag or count money.  If someone coughs, or sneezes, he runs and washes his hands...  but he licks that finger every time when he's counting money or opening those bags to put stuff in.    What are ya gonna do! Hand washing, glove wearing, mask wearing, and turning down each and every invite is what i do.  I wipe surfaces, credit card machines, chairs, door handles,  ATM machines..

     

    But that's the general attitude.  Some people act very scared, and they are covered head to toe. But they  forget, touch their  masks.  I forget.  Heck, I"m not perfect.  But this is definitely a locked down county,  definitely  a very relaxed atmosphere. I"m lucky that I  live alone and don't have company.

  7. OH gosh, organic eggs here?  Not unless you know someone with some chickens!  I miss organic eggs.  I miss having a few hens.

     

    Toilet paper, we had some in the store.  I didn't buy any!  I still have some at home.    You know, oddly enough, coffee was never out.  Or soda!

    Bread is makign it's way back onto the shelves, as are bananas. Meat is in better supply, though double  the price it was, as are eggs and other foods. Still can't get disinfectant wipes or hand sanitizer or masks.  Or alcohol wipes, or  anything like that.

     

    It's going to be a while.   

  8. I'm not the old man, but  the kinds of foods that  I eat that last a few months are :

    canned tuna

    canned ravioli

    dehydrated hamburger, dehydrated bell pepper, dehydrated mushrooms,  and some canned spaghetti sauce,  and pasta

    canned veggies like  green beans, asparagus.

    freeze dried fruit

    jerky

    instant mashed potatoes, baby reds flavor.

    canned diced tomatoes, 

    shelf stable milk.  Yep!  Not  evaporated, but shelf stable, in a carton.    Good for cooking with

    crackers

    canned fruit

    Peanut butter

    flour

    I can make tomato soup with the tomatoes and milk,    and flour.  It can use some butter, but  unless I make ghee, no butter!

    Make spaghetti.  yum!

    canned asparagus is okay.

     

    I can do canned corn, mixed with rice.  Or canned peas mixed with rice.  I grew up on canned vegetables.   I   had to acquire a taste for fresh veggies sometime after adulthood.

     

    Anyway, You get the drift.  It might not be gourmet, but it's doable.  Oh yeah, smoked oysters in a can.  No spam.  No vienna sausages...

     

    candy

    instant oatmeal

  9. Nooooo!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously Earthnut, you're  a vital part of this place!  I hope you change your mind or at least peek in and  let folks know you're okay, and that the writing is going well. Any hints on what you're writing?????  Sending hugs and hoping all will be okay ...

  10. The reason I don't, is that I really have trouble deciding on  a ranking for the episodes past my few favorites.  

    1 Last two of season 2

    After that, I can't rank them. I can't decide if I like Beware of Dog better than The episode where the Old Man gets killed, or if I like  Midnight of the Century better than Beware of the Dog...

    Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense is a favorite,  but it's kind of a stand alone for me. I can't rank it at all/

    Force Majeure competes with  Midnight of the Century and  Beware of the Dog too.

    13 Years Later is a stand alone favorite.. It competes with  Somehow Satan Got Behind me, but both rank behind  Jose Chung.  All three of those episodes I put outside the   competition, as they are  tension relievers and   in a category of their own.

    Skull And bones competes with  Goodbye To All That 

     

    On the flip side, I can't decide which episodes  would be my least favorite either.  There are a lot of them I don't like, more than ones I like... The only one I know is  the last of the last is the Loin one... Second to last might be Goodbye Charlie. Not sure.  I really didn't like th eone about the kid visiting the  funerals either.  

     

    And where do I put the Pilot?  I loved parts of it.  Hated parts of it.   But it is THE episode that introduces us to the Black family.    

     

    I may work on it, if ever I get the chores caught up around here.  My lazy nature says that might not happen, but if it does, I'll surely share!

  11. Look at all that feminine energy.  Definitely an episode for the women of Millennium.   Anyway, If Butler  should be in one, I'd think that was the one.   She could have been   a fly in the ointment, helping to egg the shooter on, or leading the girls out into the woods to do their thing,   a teacher whispering in Catherine's ear to egg the disagreement on between her and  Lara....   Maybe at the end of the episode, she could walk by and casually whisper to Catherine to "Say Hello to Frank for me" ....Lots  to work with there.

  12. The  local grocery has  some meat, and some eggs, but the  prices are double.  Some bread,  I didn't check pricing.   The fresh produce looks rotted.   Then again, it's that way half the time anyway.  No   toilet paper, no disinfectant,  But plenty of some of the foods I like that no one else does.

  13. I'll have to check it out.    I hope to watch this miniseries again, too.

    I saw in the news that  fires in the exclusion zone are causing radiation levels to spike.   Also, PBS had a documentary out about the animals in the exclusion zone.   I watched it some years ago, and it was surprising.
