    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Does anyone here watch Gray's Anatomy? The show's been on for 100 years, someone must watch it. Not any of us, apparently. Add me to the list of those who got FJ in spite of not being a fan. One of the few things I know about the show is that it's been on for, like, ever, and that's what the clue was looking for, so I went with it. Since I was tiring of Bif, I wasn't sorry to see him go. He just plain got outplayed; if it wasn't for his hitting those DDs, it would have been a runaway for the new champ. The new guy seems a bit tightly wound, but he didn't bother me. Maybe he'll relax a bit for his second game.

    Having to go two days without reading the J! comments before going to work was very disorienting. Glad things are back to normal! When the shouty champ said he'd been a DJ and Alex asked what kind of music he played, I was waiting for the guy to say "I HOSTED AN EASY LISTENING SHOW!" Did anyone else know the Nicaragua answer because the mentions of bananas and coffee in the clue brought to mind the song Managua, Nicaragua? I know that even though it's before my time... I also knew Capri thanks to I, Claudius!

  5. Leah, with a big smile, taking a selfie with that couple and their kid, with Mike Rinder and Mark Bunker a couple of feet away snarking on the Clearwater police, was comedy GOLD!!

    S06.E04: Four Movements

    I didn't get this episode. From what I've read, Gina is being dropped from the show, it was a deliberate decision to write her out. So why the big, gushy send-off? Apparently the show decided she wasn't necessary - a decision I agree with - so just let her disappear, no need to give the character a half-hour tongue bath. It was weird. And unnecessary. And for the most part, unfunny.

    Match Game

    Almost ANY Tom Cruise movie worked as an answer, that was the problem. I went with 'Cocktail'. Agree that Whitney was awful, though she was obviously very pleased with her answers.

    LAFF

    This makes me sad. That show is really underrated, the writing is so good. And Christine Baranski's Maryann is one of the funniest sitcom characters of all time.

    SNL in the Media

    As a GG fan, I watched that show and remember him on it. They tried making him kind of a beefcake character. I remember an episode where he wore teeny, tiny little swim trunks and nothing else. Maybe SNL will be good enough to dig that up for us!

    I, too, got hung up on the NY part of the lady singers clue, with JLo coming to mind immediately. I know she's from the Bronx, and even though I didn't think she had the number of hits in the 90s as the clue stated, once I had her in my head, I couldn't think of anyone else. Didn't even know Mariah was from NY. There were some really bad guesses this week. One that stands out for me was a clue about birds, which specifically stated the answer was a body part that birds and humans share. One of them guessed 'talons'.

    3/5 again this week. Tuesday was an instaget, Wednesday an educated guess that panned out. Since I generally do well with anything astronomy related, Friday wasn't quite an instaget, but close.

    Talking Schitt: The Quote Thread

    I loved the follow-up to this- Stevie: I'll get the first round. David: Oh, you'll be getting every round.

    S44.E11: James McAvoy / Meek Mill

    For a second I, too, thought it was John Goodman, then realized it was Steve Martin. Always great to see him, and nice to get a 'wild and crazy guy' callback. Almost no one in the audience seemed to get it, though, which was depressing. The opening sketch was great, but the episode was spotty after that. Cecily was hilarious and spot-on as the annoying Pirro. And Kate, once again, proving she can do just about anybody. The writing was great, too: yeah, why can't all the government workers not getting paid just sell off some of their artwork? Even a lesser Picasso will bring in enough for a week or two of yacht maintenance!

    What's up with his left hand in that photo? Looks like maybe he was doing something not quite godly with it and it froze that way!
