  1. I blame the writers for that Transylvania category - they knew Alex would milk it for all it was worth. Don't do that again... My husband and I always get some kind of terrier so I loved Farhad's story. Poor little thing, to be allergic to the very one who will be taking care of him. You have to plan ahead for extra vet costs, but terriers are worth it. I thought diploids were going to be awful, but it was the only category where I got all of them...
  2. I was really glad for the new year also. You can watch the reruns for only so long. I feel so much better that several of you had trouble with FJ also. That was my field in graduate school back nearly 50 years ago, but I had no idea that Lawrence had come to America. According to the archives for Jeopardy this question has been used in various forms before, so I guess it was fair. I actually found the whole game harder than usual, but it's probably as Alex said on his opening remarks -- it's harder because they aren't reruns we've heard before. Really like the new champ - calm, poised, pleasant voice with no oddities, no swaying, no microphone waving, no smugness. Loved her koala story - I'm one of those who would also like to cuddle a koala...
  3. I can hardly wait until next week - we're spending an entire episode (apparently) on the 25th anniversary of Sister Act. I guess no one said "Hey, let's take this time off and try to come up with very vital, intereting new stories and hot topics!"
  4. Mike Barnacle quote from this morning: "Long term thinking for Donald Trump is "What's for lunch?" I love Mike Barnacle....
  5. I had no idea what was going on through this entire episode. It felt as if I had missed the last 10 episodes or more. All I know about law has come from Law & Order and other legal shows from years back. Is this the last season? Hope so...
  6. I agree this was a strong episode, but I am a sucker for any medical show - all the way back to Dr. Welby.. Somebody please explain what it means that Dan Lauria didn't stay around for the "surgery" - he seemed in such high spirits about it...
  7. Question for all of you who get the rerun Jeopardy from last year too (mine is called Daytime Jeopardy). I thought we were supposed to get rerun tournaments on that one also, but yesterday's was just a random game from June of last year. I'll take any jeopardy except the kid's tournament, but wonder what's going on... I enjoyed the teen tournament rerun yesterday. I actually enjoy teenagers, but it has always bothered me when they put a freshman against a senior for example. There's so much difference between the 9th grade and seniors in maturity and knowledge...
  8. I realized today that Raven has not crossed my mind since she left! Really glad she's happy with her show and won't be back. Her appearance has certainly drastically changed, but as she said, she doesn't care what the viewers think of her... Was the other interview person someone I should know, or was he there just to prop up Whoopi's ego re: Sister Act 2? Really looking forward to Maxine Waters on Friday (hopefully interviewed by Joy). She's very tough and out-spoken...
  9. I found that FJ the hardest question in a long time. I had no idea what they wanted and I googled it. I always do that to verify unless I definitely know it. It came up something like "karpandara" some huge billowing fir tree. Definitely a better symbol I thought than the black swan for Australia. My hope for next year is that the writers come back to reality and come up with clever, challenging questions that are possible to get and don't sound like they have been pulled out of some random, long ago encyclopedia of arcane facts. Please, showrunners, stop these people from swaying drunkenly to and fro, hopping around the board, and waving the buzzer around. Think about your fans at home. That said, bring on season 34!
  10. Did anyone else's screen go black as Jedi was presenting her "exciting" preview of the dance mom? I have no interest in her at all, but if my TV is about to go out, I need to know. I'm constantly amazed at how naive Sunny is about anything sexual. She is a long-married, educated woman - what's going on? I thought those young people were very articulate - I just can't get too excited about all that stuff at my advanced age... Loved what they said about T's speech to the Boy Scouts. Once again he made it all about himself and the size of the crowd. .
  11. I hope J.K. Simmons will forgive me for momentarily being unable to call his name. I have loved his work since Oz, my first "serious" cable drama. He was an electric, believable Nazi type. Such a multidimensional actor...
  12. I like the new champ also. She has the pleasant demeanor of Julia Collins, and I hope she stays awhile. Love anyone who isn't smug and starts at the top. Had no clue on jellyfish, but that's OK with me - I don't intend to ever be in the presence of any marine creature....
  13. Had she won without saying Cormac on the FJ, I would have questioned the judges' decision, but since she didn't... It definitely required the first name because that was the one that was changed... I tried reading some Cormac McCarthy - just couldn't even get into it...
  14. You all who got Castro should be proud. First of all, I've always thought he was short (seem to remember Barbara Walters interviewing him arm in arm and she was taller) and there are lots of men with straggly beards. The year makes sense, though, so I should have gotten it. New champ seems pleasant and hope he stays a few days. The games have seemed slow to me lately - don't know if it's the end-of-season drag, or what. We only have 2 weeks left after this one....
  15. Am I the only doofus sitting at home today, waiting for Idris Elba to come onstsage? What was all that blather about? Have that man come on the show and talk!! And Joy's right - Luther is a wonderful, dark police series, if you enjoy that sort of thing. Several seasons are probably available...
