  1. S04.E08: Manager's Conference

    The schwag and the open bar certainly helped, but you are absolutely right. It was nice to see them enjoying each other's company.
  2. S03.E10: Janet(s)

    "Billy Joel!" D'Arcy was amazing. Now, Tahani and Jason know that he had married Janet. I loved that it was sometime in the "e" of the Bearimy. Now we know when in the afterlife the first attempt took place.
  3. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I wonder if she knew it, but decided on the shout out to her cat as she was betting nothing anyway. That's how I've heard it too. It was an instaget.
  4. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I was significant;y more bothered by Elizabeth's vocal fry than Bernadette's. Dave doesn't have that issue and it is a great mustache indeed. I think it would have won a Movember Men's Health mustache contest. I got Brooks Brothers although I'm not sure where I learned that from. Kevlar would have come in handy for the Presidents that got shot. Alas, it wasn't developed until the mid 1960s.
  5. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Got those TS, risk, and Hawthorne. I also got the Charge of the Light Brigade as I realized it was during the Crimean War. I only remember two things about it. Florence Nightingale revolutionizing nursing and the Charge of the Light Brigade. I did enjoy when Alex made reference to the football debacle too. I did get Ruth, Song of Solomon, and guessed Revelation.
  6. I thought that her perfecting the Australian accent was going to play a role too. Maybe Tiya was filming Alex Inc at the same time so she couldn't be there earlier in the season. It wouldn't be the first time Eleanor jumped over a bar. I liked when Eleanor gave the same speech / bluff to Shawn about Michael and Janet being ten steps of him like Indiana Jones gave to Donovan in the Last Crusade movie about Marcus Brody blending in and disappearing. Not even close.
  7. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I'm not sure I particularly liked it, but it happened that we were covering Hobbes and Leviathan in history class. I suspect that was planned to discuss the savage nature of humanity in the absence of rules and society.
  8. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    It was the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice signing on Sunday so I can see why your mind might have went there with respect to WWI. We had to read "The Lord of the Flies" my sophomore year in high school. She did remind me of her also. It was such a contrast to Autumn who I did appreciate for abbreviating categories and amounts. Not too many people do that, despite the fact that they specifically suggest you do that at the audition.
  9. S04.E06: Maternity Leave

    I was reminded of Chidi from "The Good Place" when the guy they were interviewing couldn't decide on what chair to sit down on as he was thinking it was a test for the interview. Chidi had that same problem choosing between chairs this season, but it's par for the course for him.
  10. It's mutual. He's the Big Blue Toothbrush at Bed, Bath, and Beyond that she always wanted in her life and he cares about her so much that he was willing to lose his very existence to save her. Doug Forcett was my guess too. I would think the person who figured out the afterlife and the points system associated with it would be aspiring to do the best he could to get into the actual "Good Place."
  11. S03.E07: A Fractured Inheritance

    They think they don't have a chance, but this proves Michael's hypothesis that humans can be good if pushed in the right direction and it would even show that they would still choose to be good despite knowing eternal damnation awaits them. It really is the perfect test for moral desert and they are passing it with flying colors. I'm still intrigued probably because Groundhog Day is my favorite movie. Right now, the show has essentially moved into the second half of the movie where the more existentialist aspects come into play. Phil Connors has little reason to believe that helping all the citizens of the town will make any difference in getting out of his time loop, yet chooses to do it anyway. While he did a lot of self-improvement just to impress Rita, he's come to know the people of Punxsutawney as friends/family even though they don't even know him. That's how he is putting meaning in his presumably immortal existence. They won't even remember it and it's thus an apparent exercise in futility, but he helps them nonetheless. The Soul Squad has been told they are doomed, and they've found meaning in trying to prevent those they care about from avoiding the same fate. The message resonates well with me and I'm liking it, even if like Groundhog Day, it's not as funny as when Phil Connors was a jerk or embracing hedonism and nihilism like he was in the first half of the movie.
  12. S03.E07: A Fractured Inheritance

    I think that Kamilah had bought into all the BS about her and that everything and everyone else is beneath her as her name literally means perfect. At least subconsciously though, she still cared for her sister and that manifested itself in her art work. It is interesting to me that both Eleanor and her mother both "died" and reformed themselves due to the presence of meaningful people in their lives. Eleanor believed that her mother was incapable of changing despite the fact that Eleanor herself is proof that it can be done. Donna's real apology to Eleanor would be not bailing on Dave and Patricia and not giving up on them like she gave up on Eleanor. That's more than any words could say. Remember the Soul Squad is just giving their family / friends the same type of push in the right direction that they got from Michael and Janet. Actions are more powerful than words. Burying the hatchet (In Tahani's case, literally) was the theme tonight.
  13. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    That is precisely what I meant yes. :)
  14. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    No one would have expected that. :) I spent a semester in Spain back in 2001. It was a very interesting experience. I used to be fluent, pero ya no. Ha. They aren't cheap though. I got a refurbished one off of a Woot deal once and they definitely suck. That thing got me my full rental deposit back.
  15. It's true. Here's a source.
