    I'm just going to go over to the google and check out the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist now.

    I'm not saying everyone should know the difference, and I'm always happy to explain it, but when a TV show or a movie uses the term interchangeably, it's just sloppy writing. Take a minute to research the character that you are writing about. Otherwise they just perpetuate the false concept that they are interchangeable or the same thing.

    And to save you the trip to Google, a psychiatrist is an MD, a medical doctor that has specialized in the treatment of mental health. A psychologist is a PhD, either from a science or arts background. Depending on their subspecialization, either can do psychotherapy, but only the psychiatrist would be covered by Alberta Health. Being a doctor, a psychiatrist can also prescribe medication. If they have trained in that area, psychologists can also do psychological testing, such as IQ testing, personality tests, neuropsychological testing, etc.

    Personally, I would have done the final episode differently, but it was a pretty fun watch overall.

     
    In particular, she had already shown that she was experienced enough to vet clients before seeing them in their place. It was a rookie mistake, and while it's a valid issue for workers in that area and I'm glad they addressed it, it would have been more appropriate if Mistress May had this issue in an earlier episode when she was less experienced. However, if I was writing, I would have left the reconciliation between Carter and May until the end, and have Carter trying to go on his own as a Dom but then, being inexperienced, have it him who gets in trouble with not vetting a client properly, and then May come to his rescue, at which time they reconcile. That could have set up a second season where May mentors Carter in becoming a Dom. But that's just me.

    Bonding was a fantastic show! I really hope they bring another couple seasons out for it. (And not just because of the copious amounts of latex in it...but that sure helps!)
    We've been watching Lucifer and just started the latest season put out by Netflix - only a couple episodes into the new season but I'm not sure if I'm digging where they're going with it. Time will tell. The TW has so many shows on the PVR that she needs to catch up with...
    Just a quick shout out to Mr."Winning isn't everything" for pis*ing away not one but TWO HoF QB's. F*ck you Len and good riddance.

    Just finished season 1 of Killing Eve. Definitely does not live up to the hype. Pretty stupid at times. But Jodie Comer is amazing.

    Agreed. Not even going to bother with Season 2...
