  1. S09.E09: The Big Not Easy

    Why did Gordon hate Matt? Did he diss Scotland or something? Shrimp poop should have gone. And goddamn stop with the "I don't think they can make the dish in X minutes!!" Listen, buster, you set the time penalty.
  2. Team Asteroid Clubhouse

    If you want wholesale killin', you want Jamie from Zoo.

    I keep wondering if, knowing there's a comet headed towards Earth people would really care about Presidential succession squabbling or whether they would focus on that to not have to think about the comet. Me, I'd be doing research to find out where the best place to try and survive is and head there. They did make this tense, and I did appreciate that the cop really is a good guy.
  4. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    I live in Tucson, so that one TS was a piece of cake for me!
  5. I think they probably fill up on booze and bread and wedding cake. It always looks like a lot of guests leave a ton on their plates.
  6. Where did the Hell did Julia come from? It was bad enough that Masterchef, Junior kept adding contestants; now they're doing that with this show? And they need to drop being shocked- shocked!- that home cooks might have problems cooking for a large group. I mean seriously.

    Ah! Never heard of them, but thank you.

    Who sang that song? It sounded like the Kingston Trio to me, but I have no idea. Why doesn't ReSyst want input from Tanz? Of course Grace lies a champion. I can't help but think that what with the coming meteor most Americans don't actually care about a Presidential power struggle.

    This show needs less earnestness. Also fewer plot twists. I dunno, I'm starting to root for the asteroid.
  10. The original series had a lot going for it- Selleck, the writers, and tone. Think of the difference in Magnum in Did you See the Sunrise? (and the ending was so unexpected at least partially because the spoilers and social media just weren't there) and in Unfinished Business, where he chooses not to kill Quang Ki. I'm hoping this reboot isn't all style and no substance.

    Like any of them should be raising a baby.

    Mentoring is just another gimmick. TPB think we want them, not a competition where we watch talented cooks cook.

    Was Darius's speech 100% famous quotes?

    Who the Hell runs home to mom when you know an evildoer is after you?

    Actually, Gordon told her to do that. "I'm going to pick people who were nice to me!" Judges, she is never picking you. Again with the recreate. If all Dreaded Pressure Tests are like that, photographic memory guy is a shoe-in for the finale.
