Thank you! It’s been updated.
Probably my biggest surprise of the whole column! I’m not sure I’d even heard of it before I started researching rom-coms, and was delighted by how timeless and sweet (mostly, at least) it felt!
If I have one regret it’s that I never found time to squeeze in a column on How to Steal a Million! So consider this my hearty recommendation for any other Hepburn fans looking to add another rom-com to the rotation.
Absolute shout-out to Libby! The editorial workflow meant I never got a preview of what the graphic was going to be ahead of time, so it was always fun to wake up on Friday morning and see what was in store! I still think the My Big Fat Greek Wedding one is my favorite, although there have been so many great ones.
Just wanted to pop in here and say thank you again to everyone who’s read and commented on these columns over the years! You’re a very smart, insightful, funny bunch and it’s been so nice to share a little rom-com corner of the internet with you all over the years.
Vulture’s timeline of the show is a godsend when I’m writing these reviews. They list the Nicky/Jack postcard thing as happening in 1992 (the funeral is circa 1986), although I can’t remember if the implication is that Nicky sends the cards for years before Jack goes to see him or if it was supposed to have happened… Read more
You make good points in your Amy vs. Emily match-up assessment, but I think Emily has a chance to even the score if she’s able to figure out that Amy’s one big weakness is falling through ice.
Overall, the LARPing scene didn’t bother me, but I did find it bizarre when he said “This is my only chance to be a hero.” Like, sir, you are literally a firefighter! One of our most universially celebrated heroic professions!
Thank you! I added Aja’s name as well.
This episode definitely gave me big “Sylvie’s gonna die”/doomed love story vibes. Although I also wouldn’t be surprised if they just separated her and Loki in a way where they could reunite them again in season two if they wanted to.
I *think* Lois told Jonathan that she had the miscarriage when the twins were about a year and a half old, although I haven’t rewatched to double check.
Ooh, good catch on the yearbook date! Also, I hope Clark at least called to check in on his mom during those nine years away. (Or more? Did he leave before he graduated high school?)
Thank you for this!! Librarians rule, and it’s been fixed!
I didn’t really expect or need Kara to actually show up. I just find it strange that a bunch of the dialogue was about Clark being alone on Earth or not having any living Kryptonian family when his cousin is right there!! Like, Edge’s whole pitch was basically, “We’re Kryptonian relatives so we should automatically… Read more
Thank you! That wasn’t included with the screener I got, and I hadn’t thought to double check on the Disney+ platform once it debuted. The review has been updated now.
This impression is cute as hell! And, yes, for some reason I keep forgetting they were in Midnight in Paris together, to the point where this is the second time in a week where I’ve been like, “Oh yeah...”
I definitely had a brief moment where I thought this episode was going to officially re-canonize Agents of Shield into the MCU. Would’ve been an appropriately weird way to do it.
Interestingly, the car crash was only revealed in the promo for next week’s episode, rather than within this episode itself. (So those catching up on “Birth Mother” on Hulu won’t even see it.) I think that’s why it felt so different than the home invader reveal, which was actually built into the episode as a proper… Read more
Definitely a clipboard error! (Or some sort of error, I’ve never even seen that other article before.) Thanks for the catch. The link is updated now and here’s what I was actually trying to share: Read more
Just went back to check and you’re right, it was Guyana not Ghana! Good catch, and I’ll update the article. Thanks!
