    I just finished episode 5. (Actually “watched” it twice. Fell asleep the first time) I can’t believe it took me this long to watch. Glad I watched Graham Norton last week. My favorite part is the changing credits, depending on what was decided last episode.
  2. This is the same mix they’ve used the last 2 years. I would love if they split it up over a few weeks and show specific decades/eras. I would love the see the whole of “Dysfunctional Family Christmas” or the “It’s a Wonderful Life” sketch where the beat the crap out of Potter. Good times.
  3. While I am enjoying the show (Im a sucker for trivia type shows) I hope next season they get people who actually understand the point of building the chain. For a while they kept banking after each correct answer instead of trying to work their way up the chain. I do wonder though, how I would do under the pressure of the show. I would say that I get about 90% of the questions right. But, would I remember in a few seconds that Bobby was JFK’s Attorney General, or would I fall apart trying to think of it, while wasting everyones times. Thats why I try to not to judge. I am not always successful at the attempt.
  4. Much like Clippy, I don't think we're gonna get rid of Badgy that easily.
  5. Depending on where he's been the last few months, he might be quarantined for 2 weeks after getting back to New York. Colbert had to do that after being SC.
  6. My answer for that was "Back Alley"
  7. This was a definite improvement on last season. We actually got to see all the holes this year. And I loved watching them try to catch the pole. Will keep watching.
  8. I said Much Ado About Nothing for FJ, with The Tempest as my second choice. I thought they were supposed to get through all clues in tournament play. Both rounds they left a few on there. I am sad when that happens.
  9. I don’t think TK’s avoiding the dog was just about him not wanting to fall in love with it before it died. I took it as a sign of his emotional place right then and there, with his father going through cancer treatments and his own recent breakup that led to his relapse and OD. That is a lot going on, even if it is not him who has cancer. I can see him not feeling like he could handle anymore loss emotionally. Thus putting his sobriety at risk too. It could be interesting to see them dwell on this a bit. If it comes back of course.
  10. So with this “soft reboot,” are they abandoning the Peter Weller character from last season’s finale? It seemed like they were setting him up as the big bad guy for this season.
  11. Or to solve the problem them selves, which is what the the former senator was saying. From their thinking, Picard and the Federation saw a weakness in the Romulans, and took advantage of it. They’re goal was destabilization, not some altruistic attempt to help a neighbor. If the Federation had minded their own damn business the mighty Romulan Star Empire, which has stood for centuries, would have persevered through their own ingenuity, cunning and guile. And as proof for his thesis, just look at the last 14 years. This view may not be logical, but it makes sense from a Romulan point of view.
  12. Generations. Which I have not watched in years, but now kinda want to see if it as mediocre as I remember. I saw someone somewhere else comment on the Issac Asimov book, which got me thinking. Has there ever been any mention of the “Three Law of Robotics” or something similar in Star Trek? Old school I know, but this is still an old school sci fi show in many ways. Ive been trying to see if there is a way to fit the Synths’ actions into those laws. Obviously not an easy task. The closest I came is the “Zeroth Rule. A robot may not injure humanity, or through inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.” The Synths’ saw a greater threat to humanity coming if they did not act, and chose the lesser of two evils. I doubt this is what happened, but an interesting thought, what with them building a rescue fleet to save the Romulans. Well just some lunch time musings before going back to work. Still liking the show. Loving Picard’s Romulan friends, and kinda want them to have their own story line.
  13. I just assume replicators cannot replicate alcohol. On star ships they use synthahol. Maybe civilian replicators are the same way. Overall I was happy with this, and find it worth the $6 a month. My stream kicked to commercial when she was mid-fight. One second she’s fighting on a stairway on the roof, next they come back and he’s home and she’s dead. I assumed that was a stylistic choice, then find out there was spitting a blowing up missing.
  14. Im not sure what I think of their solution either. I think there needs to be a bad place option in the end. After all that’s a lot of penises to largely ignore and not flatten. And what will they do with all those butthole spiders. Well at least they have Shawn there to advocate for the Butthole Spiders and Nostril Wasps. My thought is that they should just do what they’ve all just did. You die, you live a year of your life without all the external issues that causes us all to lose points. If you improve a certain amount you move onto the Good Place. If you fail to improve enough, you go to the bad place. Maybe there can be do-over rules for people who have clear improvements but it was too little too late. (Like to see if Brent’s last minute realization lead to actual improvement. Maybe have people from both sides there to encourage/discourage improvement. Maybe each neighborhood gets their own Chidi, in addition their own Janet.
  15. More shows should start with Jude Law getting a sponge bath. In fact, all show should start thusly. I loved the humor of it all. Especially when Francis II realized that he now had power. But I also like the humanity of it too, particularly with the Cardinals’ prayers during the Conclave. Can’t wait for Lenny and John Malkovitch to enter the scenes.
