  1. History Talk: The Victorian Era

    Victorian Valentine cards were not necessarily affectionate. Vinegar Valentines
  2. S02.E07: The King Over the Water

    What does the title "The King Over the Water" refer to? Was that a line in one of the songs?
  3. Unpopular Opinions Thread

    Just wait for the spinoff -- "My Father the Car"! (Call it Saint Jack for short.)
  4. S02.E15: The Car

    I said "it sounds to me as if he somehow made them dependent on him." Nothing about it being deliberate.
  5. S02.E15: The Car

    I didn't say he wasn't a good father. Just that not all of his efforts were successful. I'm tired of the "Saint Jack" idea. Berklee, https://www.berklee.edu/ in Boston.
  6. S02.E15: The Car

    Exactly. Good parents want to raise their children to be strong and resilient. If the Big Three can’t handle Jack’s death 20 years later, it sounds to me as if he somehow made them dependent on him. Not so saintly.
  7. All Episodes Talk: What's Up Doc?

    Has any TV show done CPR correctly? We were taught to get our shoulders directly above the patient's chest and put our weight into the compressions. Most TV CPR looks like a massage by comparison.
  8. Did Kevin ever ask Yvette to record a video for Tyler, saying she could not have a relationship with him? I don't remember all the details of the episodes.
  9. S04.E13: Reading the Signs

    Same here. Can't they get a blurb writer who stayed awake for one day of high school?
  10. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    Glad Marty said "bison." I hope they would not have given credit for "buffalo" because they are different animals. My area gets to see Jeopardy tomorrow, the first Friday since football season started!
  11. S01.E14: She

    Old joke: How many medical students does it take to change a light bulb? Two: one to change the bulb and one to pull the ladder out from under the first one.
  12. S02.E14: Super Bowl Sunday

    An episode of M*A*S*H had a soldier gravely wounded on Christmas day, who had a photo of his children in his pocket. The doctors tried to keep him alive a few hours longer so he wouldn’t die on Christmas, for the sake of his kids.
  13. S02.E14: Super Bowl Sunday

    If the death of the lizard was supposed to lighten the episode, they failed. It looked like a leopard gecko, which can live 15-20 years if nobody steps on it. The wall of sandwiches looked impressive (was that supposed to be a stadium?) but many children are picky eaters, who would take the sandwiches apart to remove pickles or whatever. Might be simpler to put out the cold cuts and let them make their own. The news after the show had a segment about house fires that said fires spread faster now than they did in the mid-1900s because so many more curtains, cushions, etc. are synthetic and flammable.
  14. Didn't Leonard say his detective used science to solve crimes? Not that real detectives don't.
