  1. Oh come on Ken, how could you let Manning go by without a BMS?!? Especially when both brothers were active at the time. Big miss. I'm sure Amy would have known it anyway, but still... Edited to add: @bankerchick GMTA!
  2. @Ohiopirate02 Let me begin by saying that your opinion is every bit as valid as mine, but I disagree. I first watched the 2005 version of Pride & Prejudice only 6 or 7 years ago. I had a long-standing aversion to "period" films, but had been prodded by several friends to read/watch Jane Austen books/movies. It happened to be playing on some cable TV channel and I caught it right at the beginning. I expected to flip the channel after 10 minutes or so, but instead I was completely taken by the film, especially by Keira Knightley's brilliant performance. (The Academy obviously agreed, awar
  3. Wow! The Directors Guild of America has revealed the nominees for its 2022 awards in the TV, commercial and documentary categories. HBO’s Succession swept the drama race, earning all five slots in the dramatic series category. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/dga-awards-2022-tv-commercial-documentary-nominations-nominees-list-1235081364/
  4. Great article. Glad you shared it. Some funny stuff in there. I've often wondered about how odd it must be, especially when your shows start airing. How does one stop themselves from disclosing something that may have happened in game #7, when only the first five games have aired? It has to be a tricky line to walk.
  5. Without question. I just re-watched the clip since receiving that piece of information from @Constant Viewer. I'm in tears.
  6. And now Talking Heads are my earworm.
  7. There are at least half a dozen scenes from Casablanca that could have made this list, but they all relate to smaller interactions between characters, as do most of the other scenes listed in this thread. Casablanca's La Marseilleaise scene encompasses much more, especially as the film was released at a point during WWII where it was far from a given that the forces of good would prevail. And, it resonates deeply at this point of world history where we now find ourselves.
  8. This is the perfect description. Mayim is an actress. She is playing the role of a Jeopardy! host and doing that credibly. Ken is not acting. He is Ken Jennings. He's not pretending to be a character, which is why sincerity shines through. I thought I was OK with Mayim, but I watched the first two nights of the Professor's Tournament and then stopped watching. There's a level of disingenuousness to her hosting. I'm not at all certain I'll continue to watch Jeopardy! nightly if she is named the permanent host. Originally, I was somewhat bothered by the timbre of Ken's voice, but
  9. I'm pretty sure both challengers forgot that the category was "Starts With Three Consonants." I'm surprised Amy didn't come up with the correct answer though.
  10. In fairness to Kate (I can't believe I'm actually saying that) the large cup did have two plastic spoons sticking out of it. So Kevin, who's portrayed as the biggest Pearson earner, is essentially a forty-something couch surfer. Only this show. 🙄 Even if he doesn't want to buy a home in CA because he's obsessed with building Jack's dream house in PA, at least rent an apartment near the twins. This is NOT rocket science!
  11. It was a moderate hit for ELO in 1978, only making it to #35 in the US on the Hot 100 chart. It did get a good deal of airplay on AOR radio stations, or at least it did in the NYC Metro where I lived. The song had something of a resurgence in 2017 when it was prominently featured in the opening scene of James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. I've also heard it in some commercials over the past few years.
  12. FJ was so obviously Hawaii that I kept thinking it couldn't be that easy. But 1949, just four years after WWII ended? It couldn't be anything else. I'm not sure I want to live in a world where Robert Redford is a Triple Stumper.
