    S03:E18: Chapter Fifty-Three: Jawbreaker

    It was fun watching Betty almost out-crazy her mother by chloroforming her and holding her prisoner. I'd like to see Betty go more dark side and start donning the black wig again too. Time for dad to bust out of prison and help Betty embrace her psychotic side. First episode I think I've seen in a long time that was Lodge-less except for Veronica. The rest of the episode...meh.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I got Final Jeopardy right the last two nights. I knew Atticus Finch because I was playing a video game recently set in ancient Athens and I was in the Atticus district, lol. I got Aquaman because I knew Justice League is D.C. and I crossed out the other possibilities like Batman and Superman. I failed to make the "sea king" connection though. And another easy win for the gambler. This is starting to get boring.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Move over Ken Jennings. I've never seen anything like this guy. You can't even argue that with only ten games under his belt, maybe he's gotten the luck of the draw and faced some weak competition. Because he answers these questions so fast it doesn't matter. Even word puzzle and rhyming kinds of questions he's figured it out before Alex finishes. You just can't beat that. The women tonight actually performed quite respectably and would have been in the running in Final Jeopardy against anyone other than this guy. Some of the prior contestants had that deer in the headlights look right from the start of the Double Jeopardy round.

    It's really time they rigged some saddles on those dragons, flight safety is an important issue in Westeros.

    S10.E05: We're Back & Divorced

    Hildi's room looked like a Cost Plus exploded.

    S02.E12: Sanctuary

    Klyden is such a tool. They really need to do something with that character before Bortus divorce murders him. Ted Danson's admiral is such a spineless bureaucrat. If the union has to go to war soon, they don't need him making the big decisions. I liked how in the ship battle scene you can see Gordon making the Orville do these acrobatic moves to avoid being hit. This is a long way from those lumbering Star Trek battles where you have a Federation Starship and a Klingon Warbird pretty much just sitting there firing at each other until one of them can knock the other's shields down. The Dolly Parton stuff was hilarious. That's the kind of thing that makes The Orville distinct from Star Trek.

    S14.E18: Absence

    I'm glad they permadeathed her. I got so tired of people dying on this show and coming back, it cheapens death. I don't get Cas' obsession with bringing her back to life, though. He's an angel, he knows she's in Heaven. She will live in paradise forever. Her sons will be up there with her in fifty years at most, and probably a lot sooner given their lifestyle. Your loved ones die, you just deal with it. I wouldn't call it dark side, he's just a force of nature without his soul, not good or evil. He's like a walking hurricane. Dangerous, sure. I like Jack, I'll feel bad if things end badly for him.

    Loughlin needs to bring Kimmy Gibbler in as a character witness.

    Mental Samurai

    I generally find prime time game shows to be annoying. On a traditional game show like Jeopardy, the contestant simply buzzes in and gives their response. On these prime time game shows they are always talking through their thought process out loud (I know it's because the producers coach them to do this), which makes watching them answer questions an irritating exercise. On this show it's made worse by the fact that they are under a tight time limit, and I have already seen contestants blow five or ten seconds needlessly describing to the audience how they came to their answer when they should have just said their answer and moved on. That's one reason that shows like Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune last forever while these prime time shows that are based on gimmicks only last a year or two. Rob Lowe is a good host, I've always liked Rob Lowe and he is very friendly and congenial. The key to success is more about mental quickness than general knowledge. Most of the questions aren't hard, they're just hard to come up with an answer in under twenty seconds.

    S03.E17: Chapter Fifty-Two: The Raid

    Add Gladys to the long list of parents on this show who interact with their kids as anything *but* parents.

    S10.E03: Ferris Wheels and Pinwheels

    For a suburban bedroom, no, but for a Parisian loft in 1969, sure! So I actually didn't hate Hildi's room, I thought it was kind of cool Just not as a bedroom.

    S10.E02: Fit for a Queen

    What Doug did isn't my kind of thing at all, but I thought his design was alright. It's one of those designs though that's kind of cool for a time but after awhile you'd get tired of it. Frank's room to me looked like something a teenage girl would want. The only thing I liked about it was the entertainment center which was very functional and in a good spot.

    S03.E13: A New Napkin

    Great ending to my favorite season of Daredevil, but bittersweet now knowing that we'll never see these actors in these roles again. I was hoping they would just end it with Matt, Foggy, and Karen sitting around the table having beers, but of course they put in the "to be continued" scene with Bullseye having his spine repaired, setting him up as Daredevil's archnemesis for the next season we will never get to watch. This was a great show and I will miss it. No new Daredevil incarnation will ever live up to this one, I don;t think.

    S02.E11: Lasting Impressions

    Wireless Telecommunications Facility...LOL 500 cigarettes...LOL This show knows how to bring the laughs. But Gordon really stole the show, it was a very touching performance by the actor and elevated the main story significantly. Very honest and bittersweet, just a well written and performed episode. One of my favorites of the season.

    S04.E12: Kimmy Says Bye!

    I wasn't totally blown away by the finale but thought it did nicely wrap things up for the most part. I agree with the sentiment about Jacqueline's ending, and why didn't they have her circle back to her Native American roots and reconnect with her parents, which would have been a funny story line in itself. I could see her moving back to the reservation to manage the huge new casino they built. They could have had Trump be the developer and mined that for a ton of jokes. The Zachary Quinto plot did feel forced but he was pretty funny at least. Lilian doing the subway announcement was hilarious. Glad they brought Xanthippe back, I would have liked to see more of her on the show. I'll miss Titus, he was a true original. I'll miss the show.

    S04.E09: Sliding Van Doors

    I thought the episode was great, they were able to sustain the laughs for a whole 45 minutes. Nice tie-in at the end where Kimmy and "Jack" meet their demise because Kimmy never had her bunker experience to teach her about stranger danger! The Scientology spoof was a riot. I thought the alternate timelines of all the characters were pretty hilarious, especially Jacqueline and Mikey.

    S04.E08: Kimmy Is in a Love Square!

    I busted up when Kimmy and the two parents arrived back at the house and immediately made like they were tearing their clothes off...to play Scrabble! I immediately recognized the dad as Larry from Perfect Strangers.

    S14.E15: Peace of Mind

    What Dean could have done was throw in a third option, like a pack of Ho-Hos. Jack could have avoided the moral controversy by choosing Ho-Hos. I liked the episode because I like these kind of episodes where they split the group up and have a main and a side plot. And the main plot was pretty interesting and funny, with Sam turning into the Stepford husband. That wife screaming at Castiel when he was about to sit in her husband's chair was hysterical.

    S10.E01: Battle of the Decades

    I liked both rooms and thought Kahi and Carter each did a good job of capturing their decade. For me, Kahi won the night though. Her design is elegant and timeless, it captures the 50s but will never go out of style. Carter's feels more like a 70s theme room and the kind of design you would do in a family room or game room, not a living room.

    S03.E15: Chapter Fifty: American Dreams

    Reggie is a dolt. Veronica knows that if she partnered with him she'd lose her whole business in a month. Best to just keep him on the payroll.

    S03.E15: Chapter Fifty: American Dreams

    I guess this show isn't even going through the pretense that these kids are in high school anymore. They're all just hanging out at speakeasies, gang hideouts, and fight clubs now lol.

    S14.E14: Ouroboros

    I was also thinking a young Rob Lowe. Kind of underwhelming end for Michael, but I'm glad Jack killed him. Sad about Maggie. Yet another female recurring character bites the dust on this show.

    S05.E09: The Trial of Jim Gordon

    That might be how it plays out. Of course in true wacky Gotham style my wish is that it ends with Jim in a crazy polygamist marriage to Lee and Babs!

    S02.E09: Identity, Part II

    So basically, the Krill are now the Klingons, the Kaylon are the Dominion, and Isaac is Odo. I'm still waiting for the Mercer joke to one of the Krill that on Earth we worship Hertz and Alamo. How much did this episode cost? I felt like I was watching a Star Wars movie with all those special effects. How many times in that big battle did it look like a Kaylon ship exploded right in the Orville's face, or the one that blew up while Gordon was flying his little fighter ship through it lol. Wouldn't it have been creamed in the blast radius? Despite Isaac doing a 180 he was still a spy who committed massive war crimes. But it's a show, and the show wants Isaac as a regular.
