Mentalhood Episode 9 and 10: End of the Season! Final Episodes! What HAPPENS????

I watched these two back to back this morning, and I honestly can’t remember what happened in which one, so I am going to review them as one thing. Really they are one thing, it was just a two part finale. (full index of Mentalhood reviews here)

Mentalhood Episode 6: Women United

Well, this was a dull episode! It got to where it needed to be in the end, but it was kind of limp on the way there. Oh well, we had 3 really good ones in a row, it was time for a sort of soapy dramatic and then nothing happens plot. At least my review should be short! (full index of Mentalhood reviews here)

Mentalhood Episode 5: Things Heat Up, And We Think About Mothers as Nurses

ILLNESS ALERT! But this episode is barely related to the current real life situation, so just block that from your mind with force of will and you can enjoy it. And it’s another Really Good episode! I have to say, from episode 3 on, this show has been super impressing me. Also, Dino is cute again, some more. (index of all Mentalhood reviews here)

MentalHood Episode 4: Well, This Was an Interesting Little Meta-Statement on Babita’s Parenting of Karisma!

Ooooo, this episode was JUICY!!!! Both on and off screen. The characters had all kinds of back and forth and movement, but boy is it hard to watch and not think of Karisma working through her own issues of mothering and how she was mothered! (index of all Mentalhood reviews here)

MentalHood Episode 3: Gender is a Construct, How Progressive is THAT for an Indian Streaming Show????

This is SUCH a good episode! Really well-done and smart and not giving any easy answers to an issue. Feels like this is the episode where they really are saying what they want to say and the others were just marking time. Really, if the first two episodes don’t grab you, keep watching until this one before you give up. (index of all Mentalhood reviews here)

Mentalhood Episode 2: Dino Morea is the Hottest Boy in School

Woo, Dino! I like him so much more as an actor now than I did when he was young. And his character adds an interesting texture to the show as a whole. Can’t wait to see what they do with him! (index of all Mentalhood reviews here)

TGIW: Dhoti Men, Because My Boss is Out of the Office Today

My boss is gone today which means I can look at photos on my computer without fear of being observed and judged.  Well, my co-workers might judge me, but whatever, I don’t care what they think.  And I was just talking with Meenakshy about who looks good in a Dhoti, so why not do a Dhoti post?  Similar too but different from my previous Lungi post. (for the purposes of this post, “Dhoti” means any single cloth that is used as a wrap skirt by an Indian man)

Massive Multi-celebration Birthday Post!!!!!

Happy Birthday Shotgun Sinha, Dia Mirza, Dino Morea, and Priya Gill!  Phew!  I’m exhausted!  Obviously, they are not going to each get reasons I love them.  Let’s see, how to be fair?  Okay, each person gets 3 reasons, either 2 songs and one fact or two facts and one song.  Whatever I feel like. (this is a reposted post from last year)
