    The $100,000 Pyramid

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen worse “celebrities.” Have scores ever been that low? It was entertaining, though, when the contestant said “the continent the Nile runs through” and Edelman replied Egypt and the contestant tried to explain the difference between country and continent. “Do you understand?” Poor guy.

    S03.E08: Chapter Eight: The Battle of Starcourt

    Agree about the Mindflayer. I don’t understand how it survived outside the first time the gate was closed, but bit the dust when the gate was closed this time. I can buy the Russians sneaking Hopper out of the mall. The underground lab was labyrinthine. There had to be extra exits in those miles of tunnels.
  3. It was my first job my senior year in high school (1982/83), so yes it was definitely a thing in the 80s.

  5. But they weren’t born in the seventies. The character of Nancy (and Barb, if she’d lived) is about 17 years old in season 3, which is set in 1985. This would make her year of birth circa 1967. So yes, their names are spot on.

    S14.E02: Auditions 2 - June 4, 2019

    I was not impressed. It was a total retread from the parents’ act, and the parents set all of the effects up for the kids, I’m sure. So basically they came out and danced a little while their parents did all the behind the scenes work. They shouldn’t have gone through.

    Not to mention Katy digging her underwear out of her crack when she stood up at the end. She's klassy.

    S17.E16 : Top 8

    Jeremiah and Madison were the only ones with strong enough voices to handle Queen. Lane was out of breath for the whole song, and the rest of the group didn’t fare much better. The right 2 went home tonight.

    Hmm. I was bored during Laci’s and Alyssa’s performances. I am never bored during Uche’s. Oh well. And why would the judges criticize Uche for an obscure song choice but no one else? Who ever heard that song from Lane before?

    After we heard that Elton John sent Jeremiah a message upon hearing Jer sing his song, I laughed when not a word was said about Eddie Island getting a message. Very telling.

    I wish Ashley had made it through, but the rest I’m happy with. And while I’m glad Lionel saved Uche, that kid has to toughen up. What happens on American Idol is in no way a reflection on him as a person. I hope they get him some counseling.

    S17.E12: Top 14

    The four who could go are Eddie Island, Evelyn, Riley and .... A few people I could easily put in the fourth elimination spot, but some of them have big followings and I don't want to set people off 😉 I think Jeremiah's got the strongest/purest voice, but I wish someone would help him with song choice. And on that note, I must be the only person in the world who finds the lyrics to "Fix You" ingratiating and insulting.

    S17.E11: All-Star Duets (2) (2019.04.09)

    Well, I had never heard of Cynthia Erivo before last night, and now I am a huge fan. She’s a beautiful singer and presence. It’s not always the biggest names that are the best (exhibit A: the Kardashians).

    So many stunning performances tonight. Jeremiah and Cynthia were transcendent. I also loved Alejandro and Ben Harper and Demetrius and Lukas Graham. I would have kept Raquel and sent Eddie Island home.

    Nothing as dramatic as people are guessing. I'm pretty sure it's that
