    This Old House

    This week (the second episode of the Brookline, Mass., 1950s house) they revisited the first This Old House from 40 years ago. They toured the house, talked about what they had done to it, and showed (too few) clips of the early episodes.

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    You can be glad you are running the contest and can choose the categories for prizes. If there is a "most inconsistent" category I might be in the running. :-)
  3. Thank you, Saber. They sometimes show a judge reaching through a dog's fur to feel the shape of its head or something. A French advertisement (from about 2006) about misconceptions of the movie "March of the Penguins." In France, its original title was "March of the Emperor."

    From a contest to invent books: "Drilling for Quicksilver" by Hg Wells.
  6. Saber5055 -- the articles I have seen about dog shows say that the judges are mainly looking for how well a dog matches breed standards. Why is so much grooming (several hours in some cases) necessary? I understand the necessity for good behavior, but not great shininess etc. adTHANKSvance!

    S03.E06: A Coburg Quartet

    Since they are playing so fast and loose with history already, why not change the rules and let little Vicky be the next monarch?

    S12.E15: The Donation Oscillation

    I hope you meant astronomical. Kaley is still doing Priceline ads. Maybe Penny gets that gig as a sideline and can introduce the guys to William Shatner.

    S02.E07: Deflectors

    Can anyone explain Moclan reproduction? If two males can produce a child with both their genes with no fancy DNA tweaking, what is a female? I would have liked Locar to leave Mocla and find a place elsewhere. We might have seen him in a future season. Providing the education and interaction that would help different species get along is probably Kelly's job, since the Union isn't doing much. It would give her something to do besides drinking with various men and worrying about her personal problems.

    When they say "colorful" I think of red, blue, etc. Not black, white, gray, or brown.

    I do not recall any mention of Klyden having a job. It might be better if he did, at least when the child is in school. Currently he may have little or no interaction with non-Moclans.

    Not making excuses for Klyden, but he is a civilian who probably had little experience with other cultures before he came to the Orville. Maybe the Union or the ship has a standard orientation for new people, but maybe it doesn't go far enough, or maybe Klyden could not accept ideas different from those of Moclan culture. Maybe the Orville crew could do more to help people adjust. Who played Locar? IMDB doesn't list him yet and he looked a bit familiar.
