I am so happy to find out that somebody else is being driven nuts by this kind of thing.
My Significant Other is all-too-familiar with my muttering during many television shows — but especially “Masters of Sex.” — “They would not have said that then.” I’m amazed they haven’t said “Significant Other.” That’s exactly the kind of mistake they make all the time.
“Steep learning curve?” in the 1950s? Are you kidding? That’s not even close.
And “parenting” on Downton Abbey! I croaked to the S.O. about that one too.
None of this, however, impinges upon my feelings for Liizy Caplan.
