I completely adored it. I love anything Austen so easy to please. Johnsons acting was natural and her accent was better than expected. And yes, her hair was also fabulous.

@anon111 thanks, this is great

@anon111 I've heard mention in comments like this that she has autism, but haven't been able to trace a reliable source that actually verifies this. Are you able to share one, an interview or such? I'm so interested in this.

So I'm confused. I'm all for surrogacy and think we need to seriously fix our laws surrounding surrogacy to make it more accessible. But for the Jonas family choosing it because they found it too difficult to be together when she was ovulating.... how are they going to find time to be together to raise the child? Pretty sure it requires more than a few days a month.

I disagree, I think Steve represents real men, the same real men that get complacent in their own lives and their relationships. She tries to initiate sex with him and he couldn't be less in tune with his partners needs. That happens in real relationships all the time and it's sad but it's honest. I'm glad to see one real man on the show while the others are "white night" too perfect types, even bald Harry.

It's a glaring red flag when a man with five children only shows you photos of his rocket.

I'm a strong believer in raising children to be resilient and hard-working. But what adult can say in all honesty they've never "faked a sicky" once in their life or that they didn't at least once do that same when they were at school. We need the occasional break to recharge our batteries too. We are not robots.

The entire point of the show is to treat them like this is REAL SAS training and that is what SAS training is really like. Not even just SAS, even basic Navy and army tear gas you for training. 

What's better is there are actual SAS simulation training courses that cost thousands and they're designed to build resilience and can also be done as a corporate team building. Like WTF

No thanks. Tomorrow is my sons 2nd. We're having a roast lamb for dinner and a cheesecake that's currently in the oven that I'll take with me to work. On Sunday we're taking him to a play centre where my dad and our two best mates can come if they want. No cake. No presents. Just something fun for us to do together.

None of this was true for me at all. Not even a little bit.

There is no grey area. Unconscious = unable to consent = assault. Even if it was her boyfriend/husband doing the sex act, it's still non-consensual and still assault. Even if she'd woken up in the middle of the act and shouted yes more, please, everything before those words left her mouth were still assault. Why is this something people feel it's OK to call into question?

What's that, the drama teacher was really an actor??? No!! *eyeroll*

Grieving for a future together that never happened screams needy/desperate/clingy. Men can sense desperation like it's a perfume we wear. It's harsh but true. Stop expecting anything and just take each date as it comes. I finally learnt that lesson and the guy I expected to be a casual fling ended up being my husband.

The time limit thing is a myth. You can have an epidural any time before crowning (where the baby's head is clearly visible) I had mine at full dialiation and thank God because my placenta didn't detach and the obstetrician had to scrape it out and stitch me up. Not fun.

David Letterman has publicly come out as having been an alcoholic for most of his years as host of his show, which he no longer is. 

IF he were to publicly apologise to each person he ever bullied/belittled/ridiculed or made uncomfortable on his show, he would have to write another autobiography to fit them all in there.

I agree with many of the other comments. Being a parent (mother or father) is so challenging and in my experience absolute hell. My first 10 weeks left me feeling traumatised.

Only after I went back to work did my sanity begin to return (at the 6 month mark).
Usually fathers form their bond with a baby once the baby can start interacting with them, wanting cuddles, saying their name etc. Give the father some time, during which he should get some professional support. There are many avenues available.

So basically, white, cis,  abled, etc etc actors are only allowed to portray white, cis, abled etc etc characters? 

Considering we are trying to be more diverse and inclusive in the arts that will leave those actors with very few roles to choose from.
And also are villains not allowed to be portrayed by any category of marginalised human? Can they only be portrayed by white, cis, abled etc etc so as not to offend anyone?

@birdie Princess Margaret did not kick up a fuss. That was just on The Crown.

As the articlel states, the press reveleased the truth, Margaret never so much as visited them.

Uuummm... this is NOT a normal experience. 

I'm Catholic (non-prac) and I work in a catholic school. The first three things on this list are just not normal. No dances, no banger hymns, and no special grass. You don't have to take part in reconciliation or confirmation (you don't even technically have to be baptised to go to a catholic school, it's just preferred).

Stalking laws are needed. We need hard-shell penalties for this kind of harassment. 

How many more Celeste Mannow's need to die?
