    Frasier

    The police woman (Maureen) does keep appearing, and ultimately Martin has a couple of other long term love interests that are "pear-shaped, middle-aged/senior" women. Keep watching. And if you see how he and Ronnie (Wendy Malik's character) get together, the age difference is addressed specifically and pretty well. Honestly, Frasier is the one who has the one episode only love affairs, more than anyone else. But even he manages to have a few girlfriends that last more than one episode. Some of the best episodes are ahead of you, especially in season 4, in my opinion. It has my favorite episode (because I adore Bebe Neuwirth as Lilith), A Lilith Thanksgiving, which really shows both why Frasier and Lilith didn't work, and why they did. I would encourage you to keep going. If you have Amazon Prime, the entire series is free on Prime Video.

    No. I don't remember all the names, but the poodle was Jacques, and the one regarding the dog being the queen of the house was Sheba.

    Actually it was the third child she had killed.

    Law & Order

    The idea of confession is that the person is getting right with God, not with secular authority. And I think most priests do encourage penitants to go to the police, but they can't force someone. The reason that the secular law allows the privilege in court is because we have separation of church and state, and so we don't force people to violate religion in order to provide information that may or may not be used in court anyway. A confession to a priest may have no corroboration, which is required to convict--you can't just convict someone on their admission of doing a crime, you have to have other proof that they in fact did commit the crime. And then to make it a second hand confession--it's definitely not enough to convict. So it doesn't really pose the problem to conviction that L&O sometimes portrays. Likewise, the obstruction threats on the show are often unrealistic and done for plot purposes, rather than because that's the way the law actually works.

    I did not grow up in an area with stucco (never saw it even until I was in my late 20s), but I feel like everything I read about Italy/Spain/Mediteranean countries involved stucco buildings.

    I think you mean Ned, not Chuck.

    You can use a sling or slingshot to hunt and kill. In fact, it was one of the earliest weapons for distance killing that humans invented. It goes back to Neolithic times and is mentioned by Homer.

    Frasier

    They had already done all those things though, most in the last two seasons. And the show definitely took a turn toward the relationship side, except that Frasier himself never got to have that happily ever after. I don't mind him chasing that dream, but I think Charlotte wasn't the strongest love interest. I still think he should "stay with Claire" (in Marty's lobster charming voice).

    Exactly why I have been in love with Gotham for 5 seasons! Steer into the crazy and I'm here for the duration.

    The long drawn out vowels is how the host starts teh show. If you've been exposed to it, it's hard to think of the words in any other way. It translates, as teh clue intdicated, to gigantic or huge Saturday. I think Sharpie's next sentence was more stream of consciousness than a connection, that s/he found both that clue and FJ to be IG, and then moved on to thoughts of the FJ. I'm not sure there's an external connection.

    She was the female alternate--if one of the women couldn't make it, she would be substituted. There was also a male alternate, John Pearson. The rules.

    Man With A Plan

    I'm not saying it's logic--it's parent of a teenage daughter logic. Just like the dad saying he raised his sons by ignoring them does not address old school raising of daughters--and the old fashioned idea that hteir virtue requires more protection than a son's would.

    Lots of colleges do have concerts especially for smaller name bands who would not sell out. And they were pretty exlicit about why college campuses are scarier--college boys and their beds are right there handy.

    The Jeopardy! All-Star Games

    You could see Ken shake his head when Brad hit the second DD, and knew if Brad got it right, he would be essentially impossible to catch. I don't think Brad outplayed Ken--the DD were huge. But outside those pieces which are essentially lucky finds, they were close in the number of questions answered correctly (though Ken answered more correct questions), closein money amounts, and essentially, as Team Ken noted in the beginning team meeting, the two teams were neck and neck. In fact, several people answered more questions correct than Brad, including Alex Jacobs, Matt Jackson and Larissa Kelly. This is not to knock on Brad-he's a machine, he's smart and quick and very knowledgable. But there is an element of luck involved in J! too and Brad certainly had that going for him today too. Yesterday Brad also got the (only) DD in the round he played against Ken. It's impossible to overlook the impact of the DD, between who gets it, what category it's in, and what the wager is, even before the issue of knowing the answer. I enjoyed the tournament, but I think the outcome doesn't necessarily reflect who is the best player, since not only are all of those factors part of it, but the team aspect played huge. I would still someday like to see Alex Jacobs play Ken and Brad. Make it more podiums and add Matt Jackson and Larissa in, and I'm all there. (Not to say some of the other players, like Dave Madden) aren't amazing too, but those 5 are the ones I'm most blown away by. I'm honestly not sure where Monica and Leonard came from (I know--student tournaments), in that they hadn't been part of any of the big multiple season tournaments from recent years, and their tournament years were some time ago, but they turned out to be good players. I liked Leonard a lot, and if he comes back, I look forward to seeing him.
