    Origin

    Is there no way to scan the brain on that ship?
  2. I thought it was interesting when the showed the instructions for one of the technicals, I think it was the Madeleines, it showed the temp 170 and the baker said 350 Fahrenheit. Do they give them a conversion table?

    S04.E01: Cake and Pastry Week

    Neither did she. She was given the name Baby Spice when she became part of the Spice Girls (which she joined when she was much older than an infant). She will be 'Baby Spice' until she dies, no matter how old she gets. (unless she gets really famous for some other role, like being the wife of a super famous soccer player) I also thought most of these bakers made a pretty poor showing, I believe it was posited in an earlier forum that because the contestants had to fly overseas for a significant amount of time, other, perhaps better bakers couldn't make that commitment.

    Murder On The Orient Express (2017)

    There is no Ustinov version, I think you mean the Albert Finney one? Ustinove did do a version of Evil Under the Sun. I was disappointed in this latest version, while I can get behind some changes in various adaptations this one seemed too far away from the original to really enjoy. I will still watch for DotN to see what they make of that.

    Guy's Grocery Games

    They are dumb. How long has this show been on? Too long for so many to be left flatfooted. If they assume Guy will say it again, well you know what they say about that. I was watching a kids version where one kid was really on top of it, as soon as Guy said go, he was off, he didn't stand around with birds chirping. If he can figure it out then the adults need to wise up, and as long as they are stupid about it, Guy is going to do his thing.

    I've been thinking, maybe it's easier to tap out early just because they already know the consequences aren't really that bad. They get publicity, if they are smart they can probably parlay that into some actual money. they get support from their families, some of them have businesses that benefit, etc. I think Carleigh was the only one that really wanted to win because she came so close last time.

    S05.E09: Starvation's Shadow

    The early American/Canadian frontiersmen did not have restriction put on them geographically (they could go to where the game/fish were) or what kind of game they could kill. They also had months to get ready for winter and were able to make/buy supplies to help them make it through. ETA: this isn't a 'normal' situation in any way, shape or form. This is entirely contrived.

    I thought he must have put on some weight, one of the pop ups said he had already lost more weight than in his previous season. When they showed Britt carving next to his groin, I was holding my breath.

    S05.E06: Of Mice and Men

    I'm not sure you're understanding this show. This really isn't take your stuff into the wilderness and survive for as long as you can. There are all kinds of rules and regs and laws the competitors must follow. There is a list of items all of them get. There is a list of items they can only choose 10 from. I think there are certain personal items that are allowed. I believe they are not allowed to cut up their tarps. If they did they would be disqualified. They can only hunt certain animals in certain ways. That includes fishing, especially in Mongolia. I'm not sure if anyone has compiled a list of them all but I think certain competitors have mentioned different things when eliminated etc. They only have to last longer than the other guys, production really doesn't want them to last a year, that's probably one of the reasons they are restricted on what they can bring.

    I'm so bummed! He had such a nice little cabin.

    Midsomer Murders

    What could Dr Lassiter have done except call for an ambulance. He could always just say he panicked, or he thought the ambulance would be better or he didn't know exactly where Dr Lassiter was... I don't think the point of the play was the name of the character, the point was the incest between the character and her brother, that's what gave Barnaby the 'light bulb' moment.

    S05.E05: The Bowels of Hell

    This is the first episode that I felt actually matched the title.

    S05.E04: Mongolia's Wrath

    That was my thought, too. If you catch one fish, surely you should try for more.

    S02.E10: The Passenger

    I wonder how many visitors have bought souvenir hats for themselves or family members?

    S14.E04 Panic on the Panel

    I like him too, I can even imagine a show with him called Firehouse Chef. He could travel around to different Firehouses and either taste a couple of their favorite recipes and/or show them a recipe they could use.
