    I think I would rather watch documentaries about the queen if I want to see London. These women are just awful. Marissa is another climber and tries too hard. What is up with Juliet's posture? Does she have a hump? She is obnoxious but I like how she makes those stick up their butts uncomfortable. Annabelle needs a shrink, stat. She is just a miserable cow. Carolyna looks like she is about to eat everyone. And Noelle is so over the too greedy she is like a caricature.

    I'm in the minority, but I like the show tolerably, better than the housewives franchise-- at least so far. As for the "Star Spangled Banner" episode, maybe Annabelle is a bit on the "canary in the coalmine" side-- and shows no hint of having any sense of humor, but she doesnt' bother me so much. Juliet was being intolerably crude-- I have a voice like hers and I wouldn't be caught dead singing anyway except the shower, even if I had had a few too much.

    I think the lynchpin is Caroline anyway., I've like-- and if you think that she is the real Brit-- I guess so is Annabelle, but she's sort of off in a funk most of the time anyway-- she's the one who actually likes the Americans-- it's Caprice, the old generation American-- who's so appalled at their taste and manners. But I don't mind Caprice either-- I find her kind of gracefully defensive in her "I'm actually really a real Brit" stance. And I feel sorry for Annabelle-- anyway. She seems awfully unhappy.

    I don't find any of them so awful, obnoxious, and miserable-- even Noelle, with her craving for notoriety, riches and status. She's my least favorite and I feel a little sorry for Scott-- until I remember that he's hiding assets from his ex-wife, to the tune of spending time in jail just to keep it all for himself. I kind of think he deserves Noelle-- she's kind of like karma personified.

    And the hat party was just charming-- even if I too wouldn't be caught dead in one of those hats-- they were like displays of fancy cakes-- and I think the women were just playing dress-up with all of that. It reminded me of being a kid and getting excited about trying on my mother's high heels.

    I just love the way Juliet's hair always looks like it's falling down on one side. My guess is she has fine hair and never quite got the hang of how to control it. I don't know why the show puts so many people off-- must be my social conditioning, but it really doesn't bother me at all.

    Maybe in the minority, but not alone. So far, I like the show, too. It's lighter than the other cities which I do like.

    While I think the Brits need to get over themselves about aristocracy, the US girls were embarrassing, at least Juliette and Noelle. Noelle going after soup was awful. Juliette has the worst taste in clothes and stupid mouth. Several of the dresses were kind of iffy at the dinner though. Marissa is trying to hard...she would crawl inside an alligator's mouth if she heard the Brits did that. Caprice is a snob, with no good reason. And Caroline's dress was almost porno short.

    I do think the vension was done for drama. A lot of people, especially Americans, are not going to eat it. And they knew they had three coming.

    Omg say "summer pudding" a few more times Marissa. We get it, you know that is what they call dessert. Lol

    Nice to see Anabelle and Julliette get along.

    Brits to be better hosts need to be more flexible with their meals. In the southern U.S. we try to have a variety and we have extra in case there are more guests. We like to be treated grand.
    You can do it!

    Juliet is very grating and irritating. I get so tired of seeing that stupid clip with her and Annabelle--"be ruder." How many times do they need to show that? I found Caprice to be annoying, but Juliet's "bambi" comment seems so dumb. I don't mind her not wanting to eat the venison, but just don't talk about Bambi multiple times. It makes you sound stupid.

    Noelle is a truly miserable person just looking for fame and fortune. I thought Julie and the classy Sandwich clan (I know, that's a funny way to say that) were very refreshing.

    Juliet is such an Ugly American. She has the worst taste in clothing and no sense of manners. Why couldn't Juliet just "shove it" about the Bambi thing? How totally rude! I don't eat veal (because of horrid things I've read about their sad little lives), so I just order Chicken Marsala or Chicken Scallopini and I've never found a restaurant that won't do that for me. But if someone at my table wants veal I would keep my thoughts to myself. Juliet is no vegetarian, unlike Caroline, so does she think the chicken and cow she eats aren't cute animals that she couldn't possibly eat just because she never watched a movie with a lovable, animated character about them? How about Babe? Does she refuse to eat ham and make a big eff'in deal about it?

    On the other hand, the Downton Abbey aspect we saw this week is what I keep watching for. And the culture clash aspect, too.

    Juliet's @clothes are hideous, period. And she wears them badly. Stylist, my a**.

    I like all the women so far. Caroline is my favorite by a mile at this juncture. That usually means I'll hate her by the end of the show's run!

    I like Juliet a ton, as well, but Caroline's advice to her was spot on. Say it and then let it go. I agree with all those who think she displayed horrible manners at the dinner, though. I get that not everyone wants to be bound by tradition, but what Juliet fails to realize is that note everyone wants to be bound by her rules either.

    Reg. Noelle, I actually don't mind her pursuit of fame and fortune. I envy people who have the interest and drive to climb to the top. It's tough when they don't have some sort of skill or talent to get them there. She'll need to drum up something quick, I think. Even if its just by way of marriage, that would be fine in my book...assuming both she and her partner agree.

    Can't recall the name of the woman who was the dinner host, but was the older skinny guy who made the toast her fiancÚ?

    Jexter, I think that was her father-in-law?? He seemed more formal and deferential than a fiance would be.
