3 | We know that life is A recipe for seduction was just a KFC sponsored sucker but considering how much it did – A Meet Cute! Dramatic twists! Violent climax! A wedding! A subplot for the gay best friend! – We can’t help but ask ourselves: Should Lifetime start making all of its films for 15 minutes?
4th | Who else would watch a sequel for Lifetime’s The Christmas setup?

And did you half expect Ben to order his driver to turn the car around so he can return to La Quinta to dramatically announce his love for Tayshia in the final seconds of the episode? (You have to imagine the producers pushing him to do just that, right?)
14th | Should not Big skySheriff Tubb asked Legarski why he would choose an ice cold barn to have his lunch instead of, say, the heated cab of his truck? Also, when does Jenny have time to create the intricate, messy braided hairstyles she’s been wearing since the start of the season?
15th | Is the title of the game show Cherries wild intended as a tribute to The Joker’s Wild, or did Fox (or Pepsi) think Wild Cherries sounded too naughty / like a 1980s sex comedy?

21st | Maybe we’re just too critical of each other The stand You know, after going through a real pandemic, but why shouldn’t the characters who were immune to Captain Trips still try to keep some distance from their family members who had them? (Frannie’s father practically sneezed on her.)

23 | We absolutely understand Station 19 did with his white cops, who were more careful to label two arsonists as black kidnappers, but wouldn’t the show have had a better chance of getting that point across to those it needed to be made to if it hadn’t. ‘Didn’t you write the officers as mustache-swirling bad guys?
