    Re: the "Depositions" episode, my DVR cut off as Jonah was asking Carol's lawyer, "So, let me know if you have any more of those..."
    What did he say?
    I recorded SVU, and it started when Carol grabbed the lawyer to go out for "margs," so I missed his question and her reply.
    TIA!

    Glad to see this, but to be honest, I don't really think the show has missed a beat with her gone. But I like the idea that she'll come back for the finale.

    On last nights episode. The worker standing in thigh deep water all around him, trying to figure out where to put the "wet floor" sign was comedy gold!

    When did the show start last night? My recording started during a commercial break and the V-chip rating was still on screen even though it appeared I lost the beginning of whatever Glenn was saying to the staff in the break room.

    My cloud DVR on AT&T TV picked up the whole recording. I'm not sure if it started late or not because I watched it sometime after the President's speech and the DVR seemed to adjust for it.

    For me, it was right on schedule, at the :30 minute mark. Both NBC & CBS shows were spot-on. The only show that was screwed up was Call Me Kat, since Fox only allotted 15 minutes for the speech, while the others planned on 30, and were covered. I extended the Fox show, to make up for their incredible stupidity.

    It looks like I got it, then. Weird that it didn't record the extra 30 minutes.

    I got "Kat" which started 12 minutes late (and the recording ended in a commercial break). And "Last Man" (same), with the first 12 minutes of news.

    My Roamio decided to record the Fox affiliate's 10:00 news on its own again. I don't know if that's something I did by mistake.

    I love that they're running low on shopping carts because some got damaged when teens turned them into battle bots. And Dave Foley is great.

    Glenn's hair! :p

    And I have to say, Cheyenne's hair looked great down like that too!

    So will the series finale be the closing of all the Cloud 9 stores? :eek:

    I've noticed in the last 3-4 episodes, they've changed Cheyenne from a goofy air-headed girl, to a sharp, on the ball young lady. Sort of coinciding with her new position. Makes me wonder if this repositioning is to better prep her character for the rumored spinoff?

    Amy cameo!

    That's a good point about Cheyenne. When the show started, wasn't she still a teenager? I think they are trying to show her growth and maturity as a person. I like it. Though I'm not sure I'm up for a spinoff based on her character if it includes her husband/bf (I always forget). That character annoys me.

    Loved that Dave Foley was the guest. 2/5 of Kids in the Hall, it's a veritable reunion!

    That would be interesting to see. There was a throw-away line about sales being DOWN because of COVID. When I heard that, I looked at my wife and said, "have the writers been paying attention to the real world?". IRL, big-box stores like Wal-Mart, Target, Lowes, et al, all made out like bandits last year.

    Yes, some of the big chains did.
    But how did some of the others fare?

    For example, Best Buy recorded large revenue gains in curbside and online sales but their in store sales were down and I seem to recall that they decided close some due to the pandemic.

    Of note from your Wall Street Journal link:

    Now granted, the fictional Cloud 9 would most likely be considered a "big box" store.
    (And yeah, it's more or less modeled after Walmart in several respects.)

    But it was already experience financial turbulence pre-pandemic (hence the sale to Zephyr) so it's financial status may be less "Walmart" and more "K-Mart".

    I found it distressing that anyone thinks this show is anything like reality.

    Maybe the store is, but the behavior of the employees surely isn't.

    At least, you HOPE so. But I'm sure there's one store somewhere in America where it's actually happened. It's just something to think about - and the truth is usually far stranger than fiction. It wouldn't surprise me if the writers wrote something thinking it couldn't happen, only to discover it's actually happened in a way they'd never think of. So I'd be surprised if something is completely made up and never happened.

    And stores like Best Buy have adapted to the modern reality of showrooming - you're not really the customer anymore - instead, the manufacturers are. Best Buy doesn't sell electronics, they sell real estate. At the square inch level. Next time you go in, look at the empty shelves and wonder - stores hate empty shelves because that's usable selling area that can't sell. But why are they empty? The manufacturer leased out that space, Best Buy is contractually obligated to leave that space clear and it's up to the manufacturer to actually put something there.

    How would you know?

    I worked at a "big-box" store about 30 years ago. Although the show exaggerates the actions of the employees for comedic effect, I can say, with confidence, silly antics among the staff happen all of the time. The thing is, "John/Jane Customer" is simply oblivious to it all, unless a big scene is made.

    I know only what I'm aware of and can only hope none of it is based on reality.
