  1. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    If a contestant answered the original title (which has a bad word in it), J! certainly would not show the response on air. I thought about that when I saw the clue. I am surprised J! put that clue in and took the risk of having to throw out an entire game in case of an embarrassing response.
  2. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    Congrats to Michelle, but I don't know what she was thinking with that low FJ wager. She's lucky Johanna missed it or Michelle would be going home. I got Jaws right away, although I suppose The Hunt For Red October is a decent guess (although I think it was published in the 80s). What's with asking which actor did a voice for an animated movie? And then announcing the movie is opening tomorrow?
  3. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    Good game today - close all the way. No obvious dumbness. All had good scores. Three nice-looking ladies (I normally don't comment on appearances the way some of you do, but, you know, all three were kind of attractive.)
  4. Season 4 Speculation -spoilers allowed

    Things I hope happen: Jeff stays gone. Single Mateo will be more fun anyway. Kelly turns into an evil schemer. Not directed against Jonah necessarily, but it will be good to make her a conspiring trouble-maker after they have set her up as sweet and simple. They get that baby out of Dina and we don't hear more about that storyline. More Justine. Garrett gets a hobby or side business. Response to questions "How will the humiliation of the broadcast affect Amy and Jonah? " - It won't. They'll brush it off. Agree it was a one-time thing. They will not be a couple in the first few episodes but I don't think either one will be dating anyone. "Will they use Amy's pregnancy to revisit maternity and other workers rights?" Hmmm. I was against the pregnancy story, but since they've gone there, yes, this is a good idea. They did age discrimination with Myrtle. Now do maternity. Things I predict (not that I necessarily think they should happen.) We still rarely see Adam. He and Amy share custody but they are not a couple. Sandra gets some gumption. Jonah thinks about moving to California, or some place, but hesitates.
  5. That reminds me: Last night I dreamed I was on Jeopardy. It was close going into Final Jeopardy. The clue was "the 2018 passing of Stephen Hawking left this Canadian American gameshow host as the widely recognized "smartest man in the world."" I wrote "Who is Monty Hall?" but Alex informed me that Mr Hall died in 2017, so I lost. The studio security guards threw me out onto the street,
  6. A critic in The Hollywood Reporter listed some "superbly written TV series". B99 is on the list.
  7. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    Very close game today - back and forth. I thought Virginia may have underbet in her four-syllable daily double, but it worked out for her. Big payday, too, and Alex always likes that. I guessed Robert Downey Jr for FJ, but it was a guess - I was not confident at all.
  8. S05.E22: Jake & Amy

    Wow, that driver was pretty cute. I am also often afraid to open emails, Captain Holt Love the ending.
  9. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    I'm guessing LeBron James. Larry said he was one of the most famous men on the planet. He spoke to the girl on the phone, so he is probably a native English speaker. That rules out the most famous soccer players. Larry said he did not finish high school because he "had to go play" - play implies something other than track so that rules out Usain Bolt. Tiger Woods went to college, so not him. Probably someone who plays one of the major US pro sports. NFL players all went to college. Could be a baseball player, I suppose. But I guess LeBron.
  10. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    Man, that was a difficult Final Jeopardy. Serious kudos to anyone who got it. I did, however, come up with the TS of Drake. And considering most of Drake's fans are half my age, I count that as a moral victory of a sort.
  11. S03.E22: Town Hall

    I don't think any of us have a problem with single mothers. The Amy character was already a single mother, to a teenager. It's just by introducing a new baby, the show appears to be limiting what stories they can pursue going forward. It's like if you have a group of friends and one or two has a baby: you don't see them as much anymore because the baby takes all their time and attention. This is a major turn for the Amy character and for the show. And it's not that it's unrealistic. I'm sure women Amy's age who work at big box stores become pregnant all the time. It's very realistic. If I knew Amy in real life I would be supportive. That doesn't mean it's going to make good TV, however. A lifetime of TV watching has left me leery of shows that give a main character a baby half-way through the series run. Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.

    Actually, Parks & Rec is a spiritual descendant of The Office, too. It was started by people who worked on The Office. And I think there's a good chance NBC will put them on the same night. Networks tend to lump similar shows in the same time block.
  13. Well this sucks. Discerning TV comedy fans can't get a break.
  14. S05.E20: Show Me Going

    Yes, I wonder if they'll bring that character and situation back in a future episode. Rich with possibilities. I bet on of the writers had that concept but for some reason they didn't build a whole episode around it and instead shoe-horned it into this one.
