    Are Canadian teachers eligible for the Teacher's Tournament?

    Ugh I had a bit of a brain block for FJ - I just said 'the state immediately south of Maryland'. Guess not all of the Canadian schools are doing their jobs 😉

    NO. There is no "but". NOTHING excuses what Fornell did and it is not remotely realistic for that character. I feel like the delusional writers did it to show how much he loves his kid or something, but all that shows is that Fornell has lost his mind and should be arrested, which is what would and should happen if someone ever pulled a gun on a staff member in a hospital. Guess what Fornell, your idiot daughter overdosed and nothing about you is so special that you get to threaten the doctor with a gun and demand the entire hospital staff is called in. How would you feel if while you were at work, someone who knew nothing about your job came and threatened you with a gun because they didn't like the results you were getting? Working in a NICU, this is something I sometimes worry about with some of our less stable parents. How much I worry about any given family becoming violent has *nothing* to do with how sick the baby is and everything to do with how stable the parents are. This scene touched a nerve with me. Many things about this episode struck me the wrong way, but this scene in particular was extremely difficult to watch - even moreso because I feel like we are supposed to empathize with Fornell, there were no repercussions for him and it was basically treated as an acceptable course of action for a father in his situation. He's someone we know and like and not some crazy guy off the street that we meet for an episode and then goes to prison.

    Does Your Eyeball Unlock MTAC?

    That just says she will guest star - that shouldn't be a spoiler, since based on how the season finale ended, that should be a given. You don't pop her in in the end, have her tell Gibbs he is in danger, and then not have her show up in the season 17 premiere 😉

    I have always liked Fornell, but hated him tonight. Can't decide if I am surprised Ziva is back or not, but I thought Gibbs would/should think he is hallucinating her, since he has a history with this. We know Ziva is still alive from 'She' earlier this season, but if not for Ziva looking a bit different/older Gibbs should think he is hallucinating.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I noticed this too and I wondered about it because as the first show of the day (taping), the contestants wouldn't have been watching from the audience. Are these now people whose episodes were taped after James' first episode aired?
  7. I was quite surprised with Dr Sturgis' storyline. At first I thought they were setting up a dementia storyline, but then it was way too sudden onset and then we found out it has happened before. It seemed like a manic episode with psychotic features to me. I wonder how they will deal with this moving forward.

    S03.E22: Chapter Fifty-Seven: Survive the Night

    That was kind of fun. I liked Penelope as the mastermind but am struggling to understand her motives. Of course Chick wasn't dead, so glad that got tied up. Not convinced this new 'Charles' person is who he says he is. Anyone think it was weird that Evelyn referred to Edgar as 'dad' in private when they are supposed to be actually married and she's only his daughter outside the farm as an act to recruit local youth? They didn't mention anything about Fred, did they? I was hoping they would deal with it this season.

    Add me to the list of people who said Gabby Giffords! That's what I thought too - then I got confused because I'm pretty sure he bet $1000 by saying 'all in' which doesn't make sense to me. Then again, wasn't paying much attention. I'm finding I am missing James' style of play. I find that the longer people are on, the more I root for them to see how far they can get and what else they can accomplish. I can't wait to get back to seeing what records James is going to break next.

    S16. E23. Lost Time

    Did Vance say Fornell has been hospitalized? Or just that he is 'at the hospital'? Couldn't it be the kid or someone else who is in hospital?

    Mods, Is there any way we can get this posted as a 'banner' above the reply box? I have seen this on other forums (e.g. the Riverdale Spoilers forum). It's really disappointing to have a game or part of a game ruined because other posters are not aware of the rules. Anyways, I think 'Caroline' warranted a BMS. Just answering 'Caroline' is not acceptable IMO.

    S04.E21: Red Dawn

    This is the first episode in a while that I have really enjoyed. Glad I ended up sticking around long enough to see Alex regain her memories - it was touch and go there for a while. I never really liked Brainy - found him rather annoying - until we got this new Brainy who puts Vulcans to shame, and now I find myself wanting the old Brainy back. So happy the Danvers sisters are back, though. Easily the best part of this episode - that scene was done so well that I can easily handwave away the whole sun-from-grass thing. Though I did find myself wondering how they could know that Kara is 'dead' - can you check a pulse on a Kryptonian? How does that work? How did we know she wasn't just knocked out? She can survive in space so obviously doesn't NEED to breathe, so absence of breathing =/= dead. But anyways, other than that, it was a great scene.

    What is...In the Media?

    Don't think this has been posted, yet, but James let the Las Vegas Library publish a list of some of the children's books that he found most useful for Jeopardy. Kit Carson made me laugh 🙂

    S16. E22. ...and Executioner

    As the vigilante responsible for the group that took out the reviled ice cream killer, when the law failed? Nah, I doubt the general public is too displeased with him.
  15. Well there are de novo mutations that can cause disease - genetic mutations in a person that neither parent has - but I agree that this whole concept that Betty is the only one in the family with 'serial killer genes' is ridiculous. I've been wondering this for a long time. From her first scene she seemed a bit nuts, but in a way that makes it easy to believe she was taken in by a cult AND easy to believe that she is just plain psychopathic. I wondered from that first 'Dark Betty' scene if it was really Polly, and was pleased they revealed this in this episode. Of course, I also predicted the organ harvesting as soon as Fangs was going on about his 'procedure' - the plot line seemed as predictable as it was ridiculous! IIRC, FP was involved in disposing Jason's body. I will be quite annoyed if Jason is still alive.
