    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Me, not so much, having been born in a different country of American parents. Not to mention the fact that we had one previous presidential candidate born in Canada. It's conceive able that Canada's politics could have a number of people born in the US. It's not knowing Canada has a prime minister rather than a president was more surprising to me.

    The InBetween

    I've been...well, in between, on this show. Mostly because the creepy dead guy's horrible southern accent. I'm okay with pretty much everything else - even the lead's blandness. The actor is actually pretty good - I haven't seen him in anything at all, but he just can't manage a southern accent. My family's from the south, and I don't typically complain about southern accents. But jeez, this one just bugs me. I wish they hadn't made his character a southerner. It is, for me, the only really off putting thing about this series. To me it sounds like Cassie's mom might not have been addicted to alcohol so much as she chose to drink too much for a specific purpose - to dull her senses. No less dangerous, but and obviously it killed her, but perhaps it means that Cassie wouldn't have a genetic predisposition to alcoholism, and therefore drinking and working in a bar wouldn't be a problem for her. Or, if she does have addictive behavior, it might be with something completely different.

    I didn't hear those as gasps - I heard it as laughter. Maybe because I was laughing at how young they were, and how unrecognizable they'd be to young people. Sure, I can see old Mick in Young Mick's sweet face - kind of like one of those dried apple dolls, but when I was young I never could do that. It's taken me getting old to see the youth within older people's faces. I got Liberia right away, though my husband - the actual history buff - was clueless. Which made me feel all the smarter. We have different strengths, so it always pleases me when I "win" one in his lane. 🙂

    Going into FJ, I groaned. I suck at Colleges & Universities. And then they gave me the single university for which I knew a personal story. Of course, I lived within a few miles of Stanford for many years (I'm not sure I actually ever visited the campus.) I was a straight A algebra student, and I got NONE of the answers. <hangs head in shame> To be fair, it's been many a year since I needed to do anything with math other than add, subtract, divide, and work out percentages (and I do try to do most of those by hand, unless my brain is being lazy that day) I said cubed too.

    S02.E09: Paterfamilias

    For me, understanding is one thing. This show did make me understand his background, and I felt sorry for young Philip. But older, father Philip. Not so much. I can easily be pissed about the active decisions he made regarding his own children - especially some of the decisions which were not well-meant mistakes.

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    4/5 - though that's because the mister broke our FJ rule and shouted Victoria before I got there. 😞

    Me too. Even my kids do - I raised them up right. 😄

    I know, right? It seems the past 18 years have gone by in a blur. That's why I picked him, as did my husband, but we both thought we were wrong. I usually do well in tv categories (watch way too much of it) but I whiffed most of them. And I ended up with a line in a later verse, that had more than 5 words, sigh.... I feel the same way about Star Wars.

    I get annoyed by most missed "before your time" questions, but that's with adults. In this case, I'll cut them some slack, these kids were babies and toddlers when that happened, and it was a pretty minor incident - though fun in the media - and not particularly of historical merit.

    S07.E04: Red Light, Green Light

    I think the intent was clearly there, and so I was satisfied and I thought it was handled in a way that fit both characters. I think writers will write wherever they can get jobs - only the creme de la creme really get to pick an choose - just like normal life. JMS of Babylon 5 fame started out with He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and included Murder She Wrote in his early credits. I don't think the arcs are defined by the writers as much as the showrunners. I had a slightly different thought while watching. Maybe instead of being a terrorist, he's part of a vigilante group that's trying to take care of terrorists on their own - which explains killing Bledsoe.

    I thought of that too. While I'm thinking of Jeopardy, I forgot to mention a moment during the interviews on Monday or Tuesday when Alex cracked up about something one of the contestants said - not that it was a joke. I thought it was really funny and sweet - because it was a really human moment, and not polished Alex. I wish I could remember what it was. Does anyone remember?

    Thanks! I watched the first episode of season 1 yesterday and wasn't sure I wanted to rewatch all of it. This will help.

    I can't speak as a Black person, but as a person whose white grandparents were sharecroppers, I know that I thought of them when it came up. I think the question was neutral. It was a touch uncomfortable, but only a little for me, since I was preoccupied with my family history.
