    I see what you did there. But yeah, I can see her scoring an Ashley S. Hat trick: get wasted, pull Chris Harrison aside, and require medical attention.

    My only regret is I waited too long on JoJo and Dr. Mrs. stole her on the penultimate pick. She has the same vibe as B: "I'm the kind of girl the main demo wants to see Ben with." Those girls always go deep into the final rounds as the brood sows identify with them. I went with "nice girl" while Dr. Mrs. went with "hot mess." She's destroying me early but my strategy is for her girls to peel off early enough that I can come from behind. Slow and steady and wait for the crying in the home visits and the outright whoring in the fantasy suites.

    My God, though, Ben is dull. He makes Sean Lowe look like Freddie Mercury.

Currently in second, I think Caila and Olivia are my workhorses, though Olivia might crash and burn, and Jubilee might be a dark horse. Lauren B is helping her owner pretty well though.

    So far not mine, I'm behind 225-105. But I've got Lauren B., my secret weapon. Dr. Mrs has a coupla criers, so I may be in trouble.

    Another vote for the two Marvel series on Netflix... Both are very well done... In fact I'd go as far to say that Killgrave and Wilson Fisk (played by Vincent D'Onofrio in Daredevil) are the best villains Marvel has done thus far... Both bring deep, multi faceted characters to life... Daredevil will release Season 2 on March 18th, so I'd recommend checking out Season 1 sometime before that....

    I just signed up for Netflix today, and have watched the first few episodes of Jessica Jones. It's based upon a Marvel comic of the same name that was released under their "Mature" line up, and it really downplays the overall use of special powers in the show, probably for production costs, though they do occasionally appear. Jones is a PI, trying to remain as anonymous as possible, but using her unique skills to perform the jobs that other PIs can't. It's grittier than other Marvel shows, from the content to the language, mostly well acted, and the story is really the focus of the show.
    From different articles I've read about the series, the comic books also have her downplaying her abilities. I do have to say that David Tennant plays his role way too well. There is a lot of underlying themes of abusive relationships and rape.

    I found the series amazing to watch and can't wait for season two.

    Gotcha. I only used Prime for the Amazon Exclusive stuff (or ordered Season Pass on Amazon). Haven't ever watched a movie on Amazon, thanks to Netflix.

    First Bill Maher back from break is good. Ralph Reed is one scary dude.
