@Reginal T. Squirge As another newly totally miserable person who is going to be commenting more again, I can relate. I hope Adomian does his Huell Howser schtick for your show.

On Are You Sure You Know How to Wash Your Face?

Nicole, thank you for speaking truth to power. I hate how it's not just my forearms that become cold and wet, but I also do not enjoy the dripping onto my feet. This is why I use those face wipe cleaning cloths, as apparently I'm too aesthetically delicate to handle unwanted splashiness.

On Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Ronald Reagan Plays the President

@Decca I will concede that some of the lines - like, "What we have can't be destroyed. That's our victory - our victory over the dark. It is a victory because we're not afraid" - okay, that's a little fraught. But, as that's the sort of soapy-brave-suffering-fol-de-rol that I like say when I merely have a cold, I kinda love it. "I've never seen the CVS pharmacy pick-up look so beautiful...I guess it all looks beautiful when you know you may never see it again."
