    S16. E20. Hail & Farewell

    This whole season has been about letting cases become personal (Rule 10). Between Ziva still being alive and now Gibbs' ex not dying in the Pentagon as was reported, it's been a whirlwind for him and he is not taking it well. I wanted to smack him for doing that. That is completely unacceptable. He's very lucky that Dr. Palmer managed to secure some tickets through his connections.

    S02.E12: Sanctuary

    While watching this, I was thinking of Locar and all the other Moclans like him who are attracted to females. That colony would seem like a great place for them to go.

    S02E13: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part I

    Fate, it protects fools, small children and ships called Enterprise. I mean, it's not like the fate of all sentient life hangs in the balance here. Oh wait... Fortunately, saving the galaxy is something ships named Enterprise specialize in. I did love seeing that version of the Enterprise. The bridge looked so much better and closer to the original than the Apple store one from the Abrams movies.

    S02E13: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part I

    Well, that Short Trek with Zora and Craft has to pop up at some point and 1000 years in the future is about right. We've already seen Saru and Kaminar and Po was in this episode. So, that's three of the four Short Treks, does Harry Mudd show up for the finale with his army of androids?

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I wasn't sure Roger Craig's record could be beaten, but James could break his own record tomorrow if he keeps playing like that. That was the work of a true master. It's only a matter of how many more games James is going to win. Will he beat Ken Jennings with 75 games?

    S02.E12: Through the Valley of Shadows

    Spoiler alert from 1966? I'm not sure it's technically a spoiler as it's already part of the original series unless Discovery changes it. The irradiated and wheelchair bound Christopher Pike ends up back on Talos IV with Vina and the Talosians if the events of the TOS "The Menagerie" episodes still happen. Due to their power of illusion, he can walk again and his looks are restored much like Vina's. So, yes he does. Watch the old episodes to find out what Spock has to do to get him back there as travel to Talos IV is banned and punishable by death by the time Kirk is in command of the Enterprise.

    S02.E12: Through the Valley of Shadows

    I'm presuming the time crystal was a way to avoid retconning "The Menagerie." At least he's got Vina waiting back on Talos IV for him.

    S03. E18 Don't Say a Word

    Thanks for that clarification. It makes a lot of sense to me. I had a rough day yesterday so I wasn't watching too closely.

    S03. E18 Don't Say a Word

    Now I'm no lawyer, but even though he was found not guilty of murder, the man is still responsible for his children no longer having a mother. He killed her at home with the kids present. I don't understand how this could even be a question. How is it possibly in the best interests of the children to be in the same house with the man who abused and killed their mother?

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I do appreciate the level of self-deprecation knowing that he had completely shot himself in the foot with those DDs. I can understand not knowing Peggy Sue, but anybody who thinks that JFK was still alive in 1964 has no business being a Jeopardy! champion.

    S02.E09: Project Daedalus

    Airiam herself even told her to do it. She even outright stated she'll kill her and everyone on the ship and enable the destruction of all sentient life in the galaxy if Burnham didn't kill her first. Troi failed her command test because she wouldn't send Geordi to his death in a simulation to save the ship. It's a decision that comes with the StarFleet uniform particularly for those in command positions. Burnham should be looking at another court martial for insubordination at the minimum, but you're probably right that it won't happen. It sucks as she's your friend, but the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance.

    DuckTales

    El Capitan would certainly have one. My gold! Hic! That was an amazing episode. I'm sad we have to wait another two months for more. Della is awesome!

    S02.E10: Blood of Patriots

    This reminded me of the TNG episode "The Wounded" Captain Maxwell played by Bob Gunton (known best for his role as the warden in the Shawshank Redemption) didn't recognize the cease fire between the Federation and the Cardassians. They had massacred his family and he was convinced that they were planning an invasion. He had destroyed two vessels and nearly restarted the war before Chief O'Brien was able to talk him into surrendering. Gordon wasn't able to do that for Orrin though.

    The Jeopardy! All-Star Games

    Yeah, that was basically the difference. At that point, I quoted Bill Paxton's famous line in "Aliens" Game Over, Man. It was a fun tournament, but I was surprised at some of FJ questions especially the Art of War one. That's a college tournament question, not one for the All-Star ToC.

    S03. E15. Security Fraud

    This episode reminded me of Boston Legal. Brilliant lawyer, Denny Crane (played by William Shatner), is an absolute master in the courtroom but his memory is slipping away due to dementia / Alzheimer's, but can still hold it together most of the time. Incidentally, James Spader who was Alan Shore, Denny's protege, essentially reprised that character defining himself in a trial a few weeks ago on the Blacklist.
