    S04.E15: I Need to Find My Frenemy

    I liked how at the end of the episode, all of the non-Rebecca issues were resolved by having adult conversations: Heather tells Hector to get his shit together, Valencia realizes she could propose (and still be A Bride, which is where I think her hangup was coming from), even Paula and her new boss about the "unofficial dress code." So I'm hopeful for the love quadrangle.

    S11.E04: Trump: The Rusical

    It's not like Ru is calling her "Dr [Actual Last Name]," though. "Dr Ganache" makes me laugh every time. (Full disclosure: I have a terminal master's.)

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I was looking at her hands, and she seems to have a lot of jewelry on (rings and bracelets), so that's my diagnosis of why her buzzer technique is so loud! For whatever that's worth. I can't believe I couldn't come up with Spotlight.

    For what it's worth, there's a steak house in New York called Strip House, so I was a little surprised they didn't come back and give it to him.

    The Jeopardy! All-Star Games

    I would have thought Alex would have gotten Pulp Fiction because the soundtrack was so, so popular (among a certain demographic including me), but I just looked him up, and he's only 34! So it was Before His Time. That's got to be devastating, though. I was out last night, and got a text from my mother that she had gotten FJ! Which I guess is also demographic, but wouldn't US presidents be one of the things you would really study up before a tournament like this? I figured it was Eisenhower, but didn't know when he was elected.

    Along those lines, I thought it was Neandertal now, no H?

    The Jeopardy! All-Star Games

    I'm sorry to some of you, but I now want a full half-hour of Team Ken strategizing, because Monica with those two is killing me!

    The Jeopardy! All-Star Games

    I just caught up on the three tournament shows and also this thread. I like the tournament! I think it's fun to see the old players, and am enjoying most of them. Yeah, I liked Arthur on the show, and really liked him after reading his work later! Bummer he didn't want to do this, but I bet the internet hate has finally slowed down for him and he didn't want to start it back up again. Because he's a weirdo, is my answer! That's just an odd dude with odd ways. In short, go Julia.

    Wow, I thought the clues today were super easy overall, and it makes me wonder if the staff was saving all of their hard clues for the tournament!
  10. I am feeling some kind of way about this, but mostly: #justiceforManila

    Kids Baking Championship

    Totally agree re: Paige and her mother. I was glad to hear a parent say "Do you want a break?" instead of "Are you ready to get back out there and WIN????" And yeah, that tart from Davis was really impressive.
  12. She was better than I was afraid she'd be, but still.

    S04.E06: LaLaPaRUza

    I'm definitely not saying those songs are actual hits! But I was at least familiar with those four, and I just watch this show. So I wouldn't be trying to learn the song from scratch if they told me I was going to have to lipsync to it at some point in the next month.

    If you don't already know the words to all of Ru's songs (at least the "hits"), you shouldn't be on All-Stars. (See also Amazing Race and driving a stick, Survivor and making fire, etc.)

    S06.E04: Ben's Garden

    I was kind of horrified that Marcus kept making Ben hug him, after Ben said he didn't like hugging!
