Day 6
 
Another great episode which rested solely of Arnav/BS acting prowess and he scored a perfect 6 with his brilliant potryal of 14 year old trapped inside the man Arnav is today, The eyes, the stance, the BL & superb voice modulation,,,, Take Salute thy who is worthy of potraying Arnav to its the best...
 
 
The episode started with another light opening in the start where khushi nervous against Arnav's word is commiting a blunder in front of the one who doesnt approve her, infact the whole dinning table scene was brilliantly done, where khushi was nervous like old self and Arnav noticing the moment her hands fumbled and the whole family enjoiyed a nervous khushi,
 
Arnav once agn teasing khushi with something she hasnt anticipated, even though she has accepted arnav and she knows marriage consist a part of physical imtimacy, there is a visible hestiation in Khushi may be its bcz she isnt 100% comfortable in the realationship... something needs to be there to mk here there, assurance desire or something else we will find it in due course,,,
 
The next scene where anjali avoids mami & arnav both accompaning her to temple and whole guilty sigh  and the averted eyes once agn mk you believe she is doing something which isnt making her comfortable, sumthing which will be detrimental in the future of Love
 
and then came the faceoff, Two Powerful Ppl, Two Scions of the family, Two Conflicting views,  The Past & The Present,,,
In one of the most direct ways dadi asked nani abt the missing SIL, and in the most direct  ways Arnav replied to her, That the SIL will be nvr a part of the family agn bcz he has cheated and let it be the final decision, Dadi doesnt take it, She is the matriach of the family and she doesnt agree to fatherless growing yp of children so she heads to Arnavs,
 
She tells him, I see u hv grown up and learnt the ways to the world, you are no longer a child who loved me respected me and took my word( emotional)
He calmly replies, Life taeches a lot of bitter lesson, n this being one of them to take care of my family I hv learnt the hard way when all my near ones left us on the fate n went away (mother father & grandmother,,, the closet of Kin abondining two young kids, one of them on the verge of altar, left to deal with the double blow of cheating abondment)
She agn questions him, how do u think will you protect ur pregnant sister by throwing her husband out, how will you protect a child from a fatherless existence,  will you throw him at the same fate as yours, He replies I was left alone bcz my father committed suicide and before that he forced my mother too,,,, he forced her for suicide too,,,, meaning it was not the pain of one abondonment but multiple where he says mother n than father and then family who this young lad trusted, who were a part of his existence,
Dadi replies, you mother was a weak women, who didnt know how to be strong, tie a family take care of kids and family,,,, once agn Dadi has assumed that the DIL was weak, without realising the effects of this powerful statement on a young child, on man who was left alone on a night where happiness surrounded the world and suddenly cloaked into the misery...
He once agn says that Dadi meri ma,,, control himself, turns around visiblly reigns himself diue to the relation, the age and the respect he has for dadi, agn says no body talks like that for my mother, not even you, much I respect you, i will not allow you to tarnish my loved one( same stance he took with Shyam)
She tells him once ur once agn on the wrong side, once agn ur protecting the wrong person and punish the innocent u did that years back and once agn u are doing that
He visible looses himself and says stop it why do u do it, why you keep draggin the past ahead of us , why do not let us move, with great diff we hv gathered ourselves and move ahead
Dadi says I do not wana you to repeat the same mistake
he says that time dad was fault that time n today it shyam, he did the same mistake( betryal)..
N shaym will never come back in this house,,,
 
This whole scene was epic in terms for performace, and dialouge but also in terms of past, A past where Arnav who was left alone to face his demons by his loved one, a reticent child who never spoke much and held evrything inside him, tormenting him, the very hands which could hv soothed him, absent, the mother who was dead, the grandmother who left, He who has let his pain alive buried in the depths of his soul with the fear that his loved one will leave him, he who has erected the walls arnd his heart so that no one comes close to him, he has never let him grow from that moment,, he has stuck himself there, in love in betryal
Dadi who could hv been the soothing hands for a motherless child and a hurt grandson, who culd hv been a guiding light to string back the famly, the one who culd hv been there to teach them the life important lesson of let go is once agn forcing them to take life as she views them
 
Arnav the other day refrenced Khushi that" Dadi is always like that, she views things as per her angle and those who do not view them her way are wrong" so this stands correct with Arnav and the missing SIL but Arnav got a view of a diff life with khushi entering in his life once agn we see Khushi has entered Dadis life too due to arnav & her Realtion, will she be able to rectify her vision too...
 
We saw a Arnav who has always assumed his mother was correct, and now he has assumed his siter will stand by him, the day he passed judgement without solid proofs for his sister and he has assumed that he protected her, this very sister is doing something which mite kill him, with the results
Anjali has assumed her husband shyam who has displayed a picture perfect persona is the perfect man husband without realising that he is cheating her on evrystep and
& a dadi who hasnt got all the facts just that his grandaughter has been married to a man and he cheated yet bcz of the child she needs the husband, how contridictory is her whole stance her bcz one end she says that DIL was a weak women who chose death as she could deal with ugliness of life at the same time she was the ugliest scumbug SIL in her granddaughter life bcz the child is involved, if she feels that DIl shud hv taken care of her children n not commited suicide so shud ANjali take care of the child wo Shyam , what will it make better.
Once agn I realised the characters are strong and epic but they do accept the simple truth o fa realtionship that, loved one can also mk mistake, jus bcz we love them doesnt garuntee their correctness, the past however bitter must be dealt and standing by your loved ones is the the biggest test of love... and that my friends is the story of
 
ISS pyaar ko kya naam doon,,,,
 
I loved the khushi sanka devi form
A lover in arnav anticipating the joy of love with his partner,
A shy scred Khushi who is to ancipating love in her own way. 7 phere, 7 vachan
The nani dadi equation
 
Dedication to Arnav Singh Raizada

Waah JJ (Jhalak Jaan because you don't like JhalakJi) Waah meh kya bolu... truly BS acting today was mindblowing, he truely has gone under the skin of ASR.
Also love the hyprocrazy of DADI its the fact that she can view things only in one dimension. Also for the past 14 yrs she has been in an ashram... secluded... so she has remained where she was when the incident happened but Nani has evolved with time...
Again I say Waah maza aa gaya!

After seeing the episode yesterday I really was disturbed. It really affected me. Daadiji's character belongs to the 1600's I think. I decided that I will make a post combing all my rants. That way may be my blood will stop boiling.

 The first half of the episode was fun with Kushi in an absent minded way wearing her Kurta the wrong way and being the butt of everyone's laughter.  Naaniji asked her to make Badam Kheer and she was still thinking about the SR and made a lot of Jelabis instead. Then Payal and Naaiji were asking here what was wrong with her. Arnav joins the fun and teases her. She then promises to make the Kheer.

Anajli is getting ready to go to the temple. Arnav offers to take her but she refuses. She gives a guilty look when she tells that she has called the driver.  Next in line Manorama Maami comes and tells her that she will accompany her to the temple. She easily puts Maamiji off but not Maamiji's detective instinct.

Maamiji realizes that Anjali who said will return in an hour from the temple is missing for two hours. She calls Anjali up. Anjali is in the coffee shop with Snakewa [I am very sure now]. She does not pick the call. Maamiji does not give up so easily. She calls the driver who tells her that he is waiting for Anjali near the temple and is missing for two hours. Maamiji rushes to tell Arnav this. Bye that time Anjali will call Maamiji saying that I heard you called the driver I am on the way home shortly.

 When Daadiji and Naaniji 's confrontation starts about missing Damadji. Hearing the noise Arnav and Maamiji come down and Arnav will tell Daadi that he threw Damadji outside the house. He has no place in this house and no one should talk about him.

Then the famous show down takes place between Arnav and Daadiji. I will not get into it as it will be covered by the the experts.

 

I will conclude with a few questions for Daadiji:

1.       You said Arnav's mother is not a strong person so she committed suicide. She did not keep the family together.
Why did you leave the house and sit happily in the Ashram for 14 years when these children struggled. Did you look after them and keep the family intact. Your second son threw the children out and Naaniji came forward to look after them.


2.
If Arnav's mother is not strong then your son is also not strong because she also committed suicide. (I think that accounts for the gunshot.  Father must have shot himself.)

 

Actually my blood is boiling just thinking of Daadiji. her attitude of hers is so casual while Arnav is really reliving the past. He was literally in tears and she goes on about how he was wrong then and now and how his mother was not strong.

She may not feel anything for his mother after all she is a daughter -in -law but at least she should have some emotions when he mentioned that his father committed suicide. After all her son committed suicide. How can she be
so rigid and emotionless?

 There are some cases like this Daadi who are so rigid that what they feel is right under any circumstances. It is like these Kaap Panchayats. When she knows Shyam has made the same mistake still she wants that creep back. Why do people give more importance to boys and sons- in 'law? What wrong will all the Bahu's do?  This time I really hope the serial killer turns his guns on her and succeed this time around.


To THE CV"S

Why are you promoting lamp and Wick show, in the show CV's, please promote and spend some money on your show first. Charity begins at home.

I will end my once in a blue moon post appreciating others.

  Nazifa,

Fantastic opening post. It is quite fitting for the episode. I love the  way you describe things and the underlying sense of humour.In fact I  was waiting for someone to use this dialogue  "jhoot bole kauwa kaate?"  and that person was you.Then we have the White Knight and Rook argue over the King of another

Kingdom facing his own wars. This line was fantastic.


Anna,

Your post was brilliant. I never thought that Arnav married Kushi to  save Anjali from committing suicide. Just like his mother had  committed. I think that's why he freaked in the hospital and shouted at  Kushi that day when Anjali was trying to abort herself. Fantastic post.

Divya,

The post was just brilliant. I have forgotten all about that dogmatic  daadi for now. Some where at the back of my mind I felt that the 14 or  13 years had some symbolism. Now you have rightly pointed out that Arnav has completed 12 years of vanvas and I year of Agnaythavas and at the end of the 13th year the story started. So now the battle lines are drawn.

I was under the impression that Dhuruyodana took revenge when Draupadi laughed at him. But mow I know the real reason. I did know why Sakuni

was against the Kuru race.

This post was nothing short of brilliant.


Doods,

As always I was waiting to read your post. I will pray for the girl who lost her her mother at an young age. Your posts are class apart. It is nothing short of a work of a genius. You have decoded the past but for Shyam.

Waiting for the events to unfold.

Sumi,

Your post was fantastic with all the right points. I loved it.


Jhalak,

Your post was awesome. I loved the way you explained about Arnav. Just

loved it.

Shreya,

Glad you are back with your wonderful quotes and poetry. Welcome home.


Sandhya,Sheila

I read your post. It was fantastic.

Koel,

I loved the post. It was very well written accompanied by the photos.

Chitmanas,
 
I loved your well written excellent post.

 

I would like to congratulate all the other talented REDUXIANS on their posts if their names are not are not mentioned.

 

Life is too short, Enjot it too the fulllest


Anu

Arnav to Dadi:
The past cannot effect the present ...Does not deserve a worthy look now... It can never shape the present...

When  the past and present meet...fireworks light up  the horizon... because it is a spectacular event  where  the old order meets the new.. the past brings necessary learning for the present in its errors and hidden treasures ( truths) for the present to correct its course.. and  together they shape a better future . It is not about who is wrong and who is right.. both have erring and victories..

Arnav has a better understanding of the present .. Shyam and Khushi.. and was not unjustified in his actions in whom to trust and mistrust...He was a 14 yr old kid when the events of the past unfolded  on the fateful night who might  not be aware of the entire truth of the situation or have the maturity of an adult to view the incident critically...He has not solved the puzzle of the past as he proudly thinks...

Dadi was in the thick of  events as it played out in the past... she knew more about it than her young grandson then... her belief still holds true and may be justified with time...she has been away from her grandchildren for 14 yrs... they have grown up and are not the same as they were then...Arnav is living in the present  he has a better knowledge of the incidents at Shantivan... Dadi is adamant on her staunch belief that she understood the drama behind the four walls of sheesh mahal so she knows what has transpired in Shantivan...She needs to be made aware that Shantivan and Sheesh Mahal are not same..they are very different from each other...

As the manthan of their ideologies and  beliefs unfolds we will keep getting pearls of insights into the tragedy of the past to string it together and see how the knowledge of past and present shared by the grandson and grandma  shapes up the future of Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon...
Concise... my goal is to write like you ... to the point ... and bam!!! I feel like I ramble on and on and on... Well done ClapClapClap

Hello Hello,
 
Please be advised following is a mamoth post as I missed writing yesterday due to extreme illness, I mean anybody who watched yesterday's episode will know I would have had to be gravely ill not to write.
 
Let me just dive right in I can't keep it in me anymore...
 
The 3 times Arnav Singh Raizada Laughed his heart out...
 
The first time: ASR was kind off pissed of he showed vulnerability in front of KKG (of all people), he fainted, he couldn't stand, she fed him, he probably DID NOT WANT TO SEE HER AGAIN THAT DAY!!!! But there she was standing at the door asking him if he was ok. Then to his utter dismay she walks in and starts talking a mile a minute, she has no idea she has some stuff on her hand and she wipes her face in embarssement. He is trying to get her to stop talking about the whole awkard situation so he points it out to her, instead of paying attention to what he is saying she is still talking a mile a minute and seems more worried about him forgiving her, what the hell for anyways. But in the mean time she looks like a clown... He couldn't help but laugh...
Khushi on the other hand had never seen him laughing before, it stunned her... yes he was laughing at her but the sight was so shocking...shockingly wonderful that she didn't mind. That was the first time she witness the innocence behind the hard exterior.
 
The second time: ASR had everything where he wanted it to be... The Guptas were losing, the Raizada's winning and Khushi was about to take the stage. He was entralled with her dancing, lost in how wonderfully she enjoyed each movement, and had the best time while making sure everyone was entertained. Then everything went to hell...
Khushi knew she was over stepping boundaries...she knew that in a sangeet its traditional to make fun of the other side... yet she was picking on the toughest one of the lot...when has Khushi ever cowed down from a challenge. Yet somewhere deep down she was nervous. Then he challenged her... and all the nervousness went away...
He stood there in shock...first he thought did she just throw a flower at me... has she lost it...then the person immitating me... her audacity... his temper just flew off the handle... then he heard the words, she was actually telling him how she felt about him... Then he thought to himself... that girl is doing a pretty good impression of me... Jeezz do I really behave this way... and before he knew it he was laughing... at himself...at her... only she would have the guts to throw his crap in his face like that. She is the only one who called him out on his CRAZY behaviour and habits...
She knew he could react very very badly, and therefore she ended her performance by holding her ear, silently apologizing... but secretly glad that he had found it funny...see she knew he had a sense of humour after all...
 
The third time: ASR stood awkwardly shocked staring at his wife... what the he thought when had she seen him naked... Then she brought out his baby picture... for a second he was relived...then he realized... its not going to be possible to maintain his intimidating persona with such a picture in his wife's hands, I mean there is a rubber ducky in the picture, he might have loved the thing but please, and not to mention his "family jewels". He had to get it back. Chasing Khushi around the room, this wouldn't do, I mean Khushi was the last person who should have such a potent incriminating product in her hands... He was going to jump for it and he did. But the thundering crash made him realized that all this activity was too much for his bed which was not used to anything but singular action... And then it all sunk in... Arnav Singh Raizada, a self made man...who has risen from obscurity chased his wife around their room and broken the bed... And just like that the burdens he carried melted away in the peels of laughter that followed.
This time though neither one laughed at the other... They laughed together... And the laughter washed away his pain... But please remember he is the one and only ASR, he got the picture from her before he got up... Khushi had never seen him enjoying himself like this before... never seen him laughing at a situation... so infectuous was his laughter that she joined in herself... he was opening up showing her a whole new self... But just like that he remindered her he was ASR always in control...but hey she didn't mind that at all...

Part 2
 
The family notices...
 
Payal and Khushi are sitting down... Payal is Khushi's sister "PERIOD" like a true sister she says Dadi is just being hard on Khushi...Yes she knows Khushi is kind of "kookie" but she has no malice in her heart and is the best person she knows. She also knows Khushi hates when people don't like her... and this person is important to Arnav... Khushi needs this reassurance, Payal knows that about Khushi... Payal also knows Khushi's tendency to focus on the bad and forget about the good that happened. She reminds her about how strongly Arnav supported her, how he took up for his wife. Told everyone there she has full rights over everything he has and can do anything she likes. Payal points out that she had no idea he could be so possessive (over Khushi), getting Khushi to admit that she herself didn't know that about him. Payal feels a satisfaction that her sister has someone who has her back. Will not let anyone say anything to her. Then she says, she is very lucky to have someone like him... Very poignant words...perhaps Payal wishes Akash would stand up for her just as Arnav did for Khushi... Akash has before in his own way... but it did not put an end to the touture that she has to bear. Where as Arnav... he stood like a rock putting a FULLSTOP to any doubts about Khushi's presence in his life... Words laced with a tinge of envy... So very realistic... Payal's words have made Khushi realize what Arnav has done for her... validated her existence...reciprocated her love and how...
 
Akash and Arnav are doing their official business. Akash sees Arnav smiling at the paper... OH Wait a second... is bhai smiling ...randomly...What the... but Akash realizes he likes bhai smiling... he has seen him this way a long ...long time ago.  In fact his happiness is infectious. So he casually asks, why is he so happy... nothing its just a good day was Arnav's response... Just a good day Akash repeats... I can't remember when last he said that to me. I like it Akash thinks to himself, I am happy to see him smile.
 
Why am I writing about this... Random and not so random moments. Why... Because there is a change in the protagonist of our show... and their family is noticing...Khushi for the first time is being shown what her position is... Remember Khushi has been reminded many a time by her buaji, amma and even Payal that she is adopted... Even Arnav said to her, he wished he never met her...This is  what she is used to ... but now he is teaching her how to be confident with her position. Confidence in her rights is something she has never had. So... this is important for her. Arnav on the other hand is just happy... He hasn't been happy in forever and a day... Khushi has spread warmth in his life... And that warmth is running thru him touching everything that he touches...
 
I feel like I am writing a book... if you are with me so far... thank you... there is so much to discuss and I haven't even reached today's episode... Sorry guys... please bear with me...
 
 
Khushi has started on unsure steps to walk towards Arnav... she knows she is in love with him... goes to him and hugs him... for no reason... he wasn't kidnapped...she was afraid... just because she can... a silent physical thank you... Arnav is a little shocked... for her to react physically like that something must be bothering her big time, and he won't have that...not on his watch... When she apologizes he assures her its not her fault... Wow what a change in Arnav... Loved it. Loved it. Loved it. But Mr. ASR did you forget who you were dealing with Mrs KKGSR! She had other things on her mind to harrase you. The bed breaking scene I have already gone through...

Part 3
 
The Shaadi: For the first time ever Khushi has a saathi... a true partner... with whom she can face all things... but suddenly she realizes this very legal partner is actually only a half partner???? She has accepted her love for him... he has accepted his love for her... so without fear she goes to tell him they must complete all the steps... ofcourse she wants it all because she knows she has the right partner. In Khushi's defense she didn' t forget about the rituals its just that in the last two days she really wants to be married to ASR, before that she didn't I mean do you really blame her? he was all kinds of CRAZY!!!
 
We have seen the Shaitan in Arnav but are we ready for his Shaintani???? I'm not yaar... meri halat tight ho rahi hai...
 
First, he knows Khushi is maha uncomfortable with the disclosure of their bed breaking... he doesn't care... he is clued in and has decided to make it worst for her... he winks she is shocked at this behaviour... my heart is somewhere around my knees... Then he listens patiently as she recites her desires... but there is some naughtiness that creeps in... afterall she had teased him now its his turn... Pay back is a B**** Mrs KKGSR. He entraps her... beautifully... She falls hook line and SINKER!!! And me... I'm blushing... smiling...laughing... (seriously I'm acting like a hormonal teenager). ASR doesn't let up he now knows she is nervous as hell... he is taking full advantage of it... reminding her... being the caring husband which is worrying her more... He is being so perfect that she is getting more and more nervous... LOVE IT!!!
 
OK Setting changes from all the good fun to all the good drama...
 
Anjali and Arnav: Arnav catches Anjali going through an album, he wants to move to into the future. He wants them to support one and other and move away from their past... What is Anjali doing... hiding the album... clinging on to the past... It is one thing to say they are moving on... quite the other to actually do it. The one thing I have come to know about Arnav and Anjali is that Anjali talks of doing stuff but never does it... Arnav does stuff... Because Anjali is still holding on to the past... she is unable to learn the very difficult lessons from it and apply the lessons in her present and save her future. She is therefore destined to repeat the same mistakes that her mother made. Trusting the wrong persons... She now has begun to lie to Arnav... Mami and everyone because she wants to secure her love... in her defense she knows she must trust her Chotte but her heart won't let her. She loves her husband... And so her past will become her present...
 
Mami and Anjali: Mami is a mother hen...she knows that there is something that is not right with Anjali and so she is clued into her. She wants to be assured that she is ok.
 
Nani and Dadi: Nani feels guilty, guilty that her grandson refutes his fathers claim on his life, that her granddaughters life is in shambles and therefore she is giving Dadi a free reign... however... she stand like a rock when the times comes, she will stand up proud for the man her grandson has become.
 
Mami and Arnav: Mami might be materialistic... we know that... insecure...she demonstrates that everyday... however... she has a good heart... she has always been there for Arnav and Arnav knows that. There is a special relationship here, she is another person from whom Arnav doesn't mind being made fun off. She has stood up for him when he had nothing. Why am I bring this up now you might ask... Welll because some people claim to have a place in Arnav's life because of relationships... Mami has on the other hand earned her place...
 
Dadi and Mami: Dadi has been very rightly put into her place by one Mr. ASR, he has told her yes I respect you... But you need to respect my space...my life... the life that I have built for myself without your guidance or blessing... Dadi now stands on unsure grounds. She is used to being the matriach... people dancing around her... to her tune... she is desperately trying to gain power and so she cues in on old alliances... Mami... Here she knows she will easily be able to intimidate Mami... because she has done it before... Mami on the other hand knows she needs to get out of this situation immediately because she is in grave danger... She also wants to protect her niece and nephew...
 
Dadi and Arnav: Ok so this is epic right... epic confrontation... First, Dadi is shocked to know that Arnav doesn't associate himself with his father... he has truly created his own persona... She has no control over this man... He is not the boy who used to run around her... Now she seeks answers... she has been told that she cannot take her son's name in the house... her grand daughter in law has free reign in the house... and she cannot say anything bad about her daughter in law... Firstly... I'm sure this women doesn't like to be told what she can or cannot do... secondly, she clearly things the world of her son, who has wronged not only his wife but also his children... Can you imagine the pride of this woman... she is standing in her grandson's house... where his maternal grandmother resides... a grandmother who has taken him in when no one was there for him... and she calls this woman's daughter and this man's mother a weak women... this line shocked me to the core... This was epic!!! ASR true to his words has created his own destiny... he removed himself from the past and moved to the future... Today he stands on the cusp of that future holding Khushi's hand... however there are two forces pulling him back to the past... Anjali (unbeknowst to him) and Dadi... how will he make it through...
 
If you have read my post in the past you know I save what I think is the best for last... and this to me knocked the ball out of the park...
 
DADI and NK:  NK was being his normal self here and Dadi asks him what kind of upbringing he has had. Firstly, one thing about kids who grow up abroad... They are taught from a very young age to question authority... Many a time I have seen a child ask their parents... teachers... elders... "but why"... curiosity is encouraged... why do people do this in the west? Because they want their kids to grow... understand rather than follow...  become future leaders...I'm quoting Michael Gladwell's book Outliers here... I know and identify this because I grew up in India and I had to teach myself this trait when I moved to the west. Very very hard lesson... So when NK was being casual and curious with Dadi she took offense because she is from another school of thought. Old fashioned I may say... Where as Nani encourages NK and would allow him to learn from her... she realizes that he hasn't been around and he doesn't mean disrespect. I know this scene was meant for comic relief but to me it meant so much because for the second time around IPKKND has tackled an underlying issue that is occuring everywhere... the generation gap was captured without hooplaa... and beautifully executed...This isn't such an obvious issue... but it is one that every Indian every where in the world faces... WELL DONE CV'S CATERING TO YOUR AUDIENCE.
 
 
Ok so I'm almost done ... special mention for a certain Mr. Jha...
 
Even though you are not seen you are always present...
 
He is arming himself... get Anjali to his side... check...Dadi questioning Arnav...check... the family to pick sides...check... and the Raizada's will come crashing down...check
 
The penultimate mastermind is perfecting his moves... will he make a mistake in his overconfidence again... Yesterday, he showed up to the house... today he invited Anjali out... the game of cat and mouse has just began... And this time he will ensure that he wins... because on all sides this opponent (ASR) stands to LOSE!!! and that is how Shyam Manohar Jha plays!!!!
 
 
I will not pick out any members of the cast to appreciate, because each and everyone played their parts and to the T... You guys are the best ensemble on TV!!!
