    Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    I preview the FJ question in the morning & came up w/all 3 answers that the players had but couldn't decide on one - Gettysburg Cemetery, Arlington Cemetery & Tomb of the Unknowns. Date pointed to the Civil War & thought all 3 were good guesses.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    Was last night's show a repeat? Missed it the first time around. Erin Andrews has to go quickly, she's not co-hosting. here. And Michael needs to pay closer attention & steer the play back as quickly as possible, i.e., trampoline for tambourine. And how does "prehistoric animals" qualify as a winners circle clue for "dinosaurs"? As much as I was never a fan of Dick Clark as Pyramid host, he needs to be resurrected ASAP.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    I was always a big fan of the old '70s-'80s version of Pyramid. But, judging is way too loose here. How do they accept "Car" & "Volunteer" in Tom Hanks movies when they're looking for a specific title?

    The People's Court

    I go back to the Judge Wapner People's Court, and remember not being a fan of Doug way back when. His voice is a bit whiny, and I think in today's incarnation he's still looking for Officer Burrell to "sign some documents". It seemed to take him a long time to learn Officer Mackintosh's name. Obviously in the minority here, but I never minded Curt's hallway. Don't get the hate for him, but that's what makes the world go round. Now Harvey. Where do we start? Didn't like his little cameos in Judge Wapner's court and he's regressed to a 3 year old in today's PC. What's w/the stupid goatee? It's making me focus on that part of his face & for the first time noticing how bad his teeth are. And he lives in Hollywood?

    The People's Court

    Horses won't bite Doug on the way out. I just made an observation today that there seem to be no dog bite cases, or very few this season. Boy, that Ciara had to be one of the nastiest litigants ever - she bit Doug harder than any dog ever did. Well, it is what it is & it's over & she doesn't have to pay out of her pocket.

    All Episodes Talk: All Rise

    Word of advice ... if you ever have a big winning lottery ticket, especially if it needs to be submitted to the lottery commission, sign it first! Don't know if it would have stopped the 2 scam artists, but it would have made it more difficult for them to cash. I really would have liked to see them get reamed out more for wrongly claiming the ticket & for trying to scam child support.

    Match Game

    I'm with all the Jack McBrayer lovers here - loved his Kenneth on 30 Rock, and he really seems to be having fun w/Match Game. And snarky as hell. Yes, he needs to be permanently placed in that 1st seat next season.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    "Braless breasts" you probably meant to say. Braless can't stand alone (sorry for the pun or whatever it is). I was a big, big fan of the old Pyramid, and am still a bit flummoxed over why "saggy" was buzzed. I don't remember that a synonym was unacceptable. "Pure" used to come up fairly frequently on the big pyramid and if it was missed or time ran out, Dick Clark would inevitably come out & say "Ivory Soap" as a clue. It's not something I can recall seeing advertised a lot in recent years so people may not be familiar w/the slogan. I like trying to figure out what the Mystery 7 has in common, but wish that Michael would give it - it doesn't take that much time to read a brief description.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    I was a big fan of the old Dick Clark Pyramids, but not necessarily of Dick Clark himself. Though he did know how to keep the show going, and giving good examples of clues that should have been given. I don't know what they're doing now, but believe in the old days they actually gave the celebs practice rounds so they knew the game. Here it almost looks like they're being run in & out of the studio. Though Michael is personable enough it doesn't even seem like the rules were fully explained to him. How is "water in the ocean" a list clue? And the judging .... how do they take "flag" for American Flag, when the category was that specific?

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    Things you flip.... "your lid" & "a coin" should have done it.

    The People's Court

    Love those sou-sou cases. Hope they are understandable enough or provide closed captioning. In yesterday's landlord-college students case, the father kept injecting a phrase like "basically" or "know what I'm saying" that was getting on my last nerve. Fortunately, it slipped out of my brain, so i don't remember it.

    Jeopardy! Season 32 (2015-2016)

    She is my senator and I wouldn't recognize her if I bumped into her. Took a lucky guess on Formula One. Somehow made the connection w/racing, and backed into the correct answer.

    The People's Court

    Lottery was mentioned in the case intro - think Curt mentioned it was the defendants, but have no idea what it had to do w//the case..Both sides got very cagey when prodded. The Judge kept asking "Why, why" as if to lead into it, but they both got evasive. It was like if the defendant scored the lottery win, the plaintiffs wanted to cash in on it. I wanted to at least know if they won a Mega jackpot or just a $5.000 scratch ticket.

    Jeopardy! Season 32 (2015-2016)

    Wasn't Nazareth a one hit wonder group? Anyone here not familiar w/The Band, probably is, but just can't make the connection. You should check out their albums or watch The Last Waltz doc. Missed Matt on Friday as we were still hip-deep in Pope coverage, but didn't mind him last night. He was there to play.

    S10.E20: Live Results 3

    I'm glad the dance acts going on have less than 3 words in their names.
