  1. S06.E08: The Living Room: A 100% True Story

    Unfortunately ABC did not pick up Sue Sue in the City, which I'd much rather watch than some lame show about the least interesting character on the Goldbergs.
  2. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Fortunately it was before I found this site, or even before I started reading the stuff at Television Without Pity. Andy reminded me too much of Austin, so I was thrilled when he did not win. Even though I absolutely would've picked him out of a line-up as a sci-fi fan. (Totally one myself, btw.)
  3. I fully intend to work "Yippee ki-yay, melon farmer!" into my repertoire.
  4. Me too, although if you had a car, and the money, that house by the beach could be made into something really stunning. I have a friend who spent more than a year teaching English in South Korea - she didn't speak one word of Korean before she went there. It's a total immersion system, and yes, a lot of point at pictures in the beginning. Edited to note that a lot of her students were the children of corporate employees, so they did hear English at home as well.
  5. That always bugs me about HHI - it's rather insulting to walk into a typical Moroccan (or wherever) kitchen and proclaim "I can't cook in this horrible space". The light wouldn't bother me. I like my spaces darker. Air circulation might be more of an issue, although thousands of Moroccans manage to live in houses just like that one in the medina so there's probably a solution for it.
  6. Interestingly, she actually chose the flat he wanted because it was the most practical. So in the end, she didn't make the rules. I'm fairly sure the whole "moving with her after dating for 2 weeks" storyline was fake. A lot of things on this show are. I loved the first flat, with the view of the castle. To me, that would've been worth $150 extra in rent, but they did chose the most practical place for them.
  7. S05.E08: Christmas in Theater Eight

    Plenty of people still buy tickets in person, even though most theater chains also do online sales. But, as you point out, you take the chance of the showing you want being sold out. (Or getting stuck in the front row and spending the entire movie feeling like you're looking up Churchill's nose.) As for the sneaking in, I just hand-wave that as some people bought their tickets online and then didn't show up for some reason.
  8. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    It took me a moment. I was sitting there thinking "what the?" when I decided to follow the Remus to Romulus & Remus, and thus to Romulans. When I lost, it was all about not bursting into tears, so who knows what kind of expression was on my face - I just hope it wasn't too bad. I stupidly said Social Security; at least I knew it was one of those old people things. ;-) I wasn't, because I thought the exact same thing. Because they were sisters-in-law, they've always been a joint thing in my mind. Although, with the (unproven) doping accusations against FloJo, I wonder if Jackie Joyner-Kersee might prefer they weren't. I got Brasilia, Art Nouveau & FJ. I adore Mucha. I have a print of his poster for Tosca on my dining room wall, and also have a Mucha coloring book. I say Yama!
  9. S06.E09: Bachelor Party

    I don't care about Lainey because she's always been the least interesting character on the show, but I'm not assuming that the relationship with Barry won't last.
  10. S04.E01: Cake and Pastry Week

    I want a combination of both, which is what I consider Mary Berry, so I do see a difference. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy this version, just a bit less so. I do wish they'd stop trying to force the holiday theme, though.
  11. Unpopular Opinions

    Yep, those people (a minority but a vocal one) suck. The kid was a terrible actor given terrible dialogue, but shit like that is indeed insane.
  12. Unpopular Opinions

    The epilogue was legit terrible, but I deal with it by not reading it when I reread the last book. Problem solved. It's a lot easier than pissing and moaning about it forever on the internet. I think those people was definitely not good fans. They're creeps. Edited to note that some of the Star Wars fandom who have legitimate criticisms of the new movies get unfairly labeled as trolls or racist/sexist, whatever by the wider media, but that's not what I'm referring to. Legitimate criticism is good, and any decision made by producers, writers and directors is fair game for it. Harassing and threatening anyone, on the other hand, is completely wrong.
  13. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I knew the majority of Iranians are ethnically Persian, but the Aryan connection is a pretty good way to get there as well. It's always cool when you learn something from Jeopardy. I got Psalms because of the David/harp connection, but had a lot of stupid misses including not coming up with Tolstoy. I kept saying "not Chekov, the other one" - think they'd have accepted that? lol. I did the same thing, although I did come up with Addis Ababa after the clue was revealed. I said dill because that's what I put in tuna salad, and because I know less than nothing about bernaise sauce. Unless it's Mozart, in which case it's either the Magic Flute or the Marriage of Figaro. And good luck with your audition, Teebax! If you make it, you'll have to do something so we know it's you.
  14. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I always bet all of my imaginary money, and usually win, but the last time it happened, I couldn't come up with Enrico Caruso to save my life. Had no problem with Aida, though. I called my best friend on Monday night to tell her about Francesco; she used to work with someone who lives in Lititz. So of course he lost last night. But good on the lady in the middle for bringing it home in DJ and betting big on FJ. Which I came up with because David played the harp. (Usually I don't do well with Bible categories.)
  15. S04.E01: Cake and Pastry Week

    I forgot about that one. Clearly the giant nun stood out more in my mind. I still think, in general, the show stoppers on GBBO are more complicated, but probably because those contestants get to go home and practice every week.
