Oh yeah well she’s the “driver” so we have to deal with that at this point. I think that’s what you mean by strong, lots of air time. I am hoping for better luck for Callie. The show could be in danger of being a downer if things don’t go well for this family. It can’t all be tragedies.
I want more mourning, together. They need to tackle that together because it isn’t easy to get over. I think I would like them to explicitly talk about the possibility of another baby.
I want them to have some alone time, I’ve been thinking they need to go out on a date.
I want Lena to get another job and for Stef to dig in emotionally and really TELL what is in her heart. I want more of her struggling with her “tough love.”
I want them desperately to parent the twins, especially Jesus.
Just talking about this. I don’t mind watching it, in fact I am doing so right now for some gif projects. I don’t love it and some parts I hate. 11, 13, 18, 19 and 21 are pretty much the only ones worth rewatching. I don’t even really like Padre.
#1 Brallie - took over the show, so much so that Stef and Lena’s air time went from over 20 minutes in 1A to about 11 on average. They separated the family and it hurt the show.
#2 That distance - The screen time they did have was about how much they weren’t communicating. It might have been a fine plot to have in a non-Brallie season or much further down the line. We hardly knew them. They’d just gotten married. It felt wrong. I suppose I get what they were trying to do but it wasn’t right emotionally.
#3 Mike, suddenly he’s parenting Jesus, he’s always at the house. nope, dude, get a life of your own. And Lena’s suddenly fine with it?
#4 Timothy, as if having one man being a constant part of their life wasn’t enough, they brought in this dude. I loved the idea of a baby, though I wish Lena had brought in Stef more. I hated the idea of this dude and never understood why he was necessary. It just didn’t make sense for their family. The show at this point, wanted to have its cake and eat it too. DNA doesn’t make a family but yeah knowing your genetic background is a must. Wha? huh? Whatever.

Day 6: Favourite kiss
(Feel free to delete the caption/text if you just want to reblog the gifset)
I don’t really have much to add to this as I think the gifs speak for themselves. I know that there are more sensual kisses between them but there is just something so utterly genuine about this moment that for me no other kiss really compares. (although a close second are the ones from 1x19 but for different reasons)
The whole scene (to follow as a gifset of its own) has a very unique flow to it, I think. I’m not even sure how to describe it properly. It’s sweet, it’s domestic, it’s gentle and it has got this subtle poignancy to it - just so many emotions layered into everything they say and don’t say here. And it’s all there in the kiss as well. As brief as it may be, that sweet kiss goodbye in the first gif turns into something much deeper in the second gif. Just look at the way Lena closes her eyes. And don’t even get me started on that little swaying thing they do.
So yeah, favourite kiss. Quite sure that won’t change any time soon. :)
Any thoughts on the possible move to 8:00? I can't imagine why they'd air the Fosters Xmas at 8 and SaB at 9 if they weren't considering tweaking scheduling?
It is very interesting. I have tried to get answers on twitter, to no avail. They are trying out The Fosters at 8, I just hope the time change doesn’t come with restrictions on content. Usually, the earlier the show, the tamer it has to be. I don’t want any potential Stef and Lena content being cut. Let’s face it, they would be the ones cut. Maybe they think it can get better ratings there, or SAB at nine, but I agree, it is at the very least a trial run.
Brandon looks back on Callie and Jude’s first Christmas with the Foster family in an all-new holiday-themed episode of “The Fosters,” airing Monday, December 8 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
As Callie and Jude spend their first Christmas with the Fosters, Callie feels the sting of still being an official foster kid while Jude’s guilt over having been adopted has him overcompensating. Stef feels that Grandma Sharon’s (guest star Annie Potts, “Any Day Now”) gift giving is excessive, especially when she learns where the money is coming from. Lena must face her own bias against another family member.
Meanwhile, Jesus enters the neighborhood house decorating competition and is accused of cheating by his neighbor Mr. Nesbit (guest star Michael Fairman, “The Young and the Restless”).
I feel like the fosters keeps bringing more and more guest stars on the show. How do you feel about that?
I never answered this sorry, I thought I did. I don’t like more guest stars. I think the show needs to keep the stars it has. This show would be much better with Lexi in it than the parade of girls Jesus has had. She was a better friend to Mariana who can’t hold on to anyone. The extraneous girls of girls united should have had a spinoff, but I imagine their web series did not get that many hits. Callie’s had 2 dads, and the problem is that this weight requires screen time that the show doesn’t really have. I like that the three of the additions I have read about do appear to be people of color. I don’t mind Monte as long as she appears about as often as the old principal did. I felt like in 1b they got rid of kids of color and brought in a bunch of others.
I would like them to understand that less is more because they have a big cast. It’s a shame that they got decent talent in supporting roles because they seem to be getting other roles. Continuity with the kids is missing, and bring back friends for Stef and Lena for an episode. They need them.
