    This show gets better & better!
    And @JustSayin'....JUST have a stadium full of seats! Where exactly have you been w/ that skin-complexion analysis???

    I am so excited. Jill Marie is back on TV. She freaked me out last season of America Horror Story Asylum appearing in that scene with Dylan McDermott. So happy that Amandla is on the show as well.

    Wow! What a poor casting choice. Not only is Jill Marie a one-note actress, she's just so unsophisticated (which is my nice way of saying, "ghetto"), and makes the ugliest facial expressions on screen. They should have cast a lighter-skinned actress as it's not believeable that she and Orlando would have a daughter the complexion of Amandla S., who is a biracial child (black mother, white father).

    I suppose if the same thought in terms of skill color was applied to all TV shows.. Lisa Bonet and Sabrina Le Beauf would not have been casted on the Cosby show. Both were lighter than the actors who played their parents ( you know...Bill Cosby and Phylicia Rashād) and the rest of the children.

    @ JS--Congratulations, you win the most ignant post of the day award.

    Wow, this post is just....

    Amanda S can play both Black and Biracial without any problem. They cast a biracial actress who is playing Nicole's sister not sure if you had a problem with that too!

    SHIT. Okay, I guess I'll catch the two episodes I missed and start DVRing again. Amandla AND Jill Marie? Is this show just going to be the "we cast black people Akimbo loves" hour?

  • Micah | October 22, 2013 10:18 PM

    Akimbo and Tom, your comments warmed my cold dark heart.

  • Tom Haverford | October 22, 2013 4:43 PM

    If Lyndie Greenwood's on that list of yours, then yes, yes it is.

  • Emanuel B | October 22, 2013 4:37 PMReply

    Good for her. Any word on if she'll be appearing on this season of American Horror Story?

  • Akimbo | October 22, 2013 4:45 PM

    Do you really expect her to? It would be cool, but she just had a thankless and gross guest starring role last season; she's not part of Murphy's stable. I'd expect to see either of Evan Peters' love interests/sister wives before JMJ.
