    Hal Sparks, yep!

    S14.E18: Hold Back the River

    Do you watch The Resident? It reminded me of a storyline on that show where they are suggesting a Doctor is over-treating patients w chemo, hiding medical records, etc.

    Taking Notes On A.P. Bio

    Well I think this is the first time I ever cried during EHG! RIP Mr. Hooper.

    Top Chef Junior

    My Comcast just notified me that they are adding the Universal Kids channel BACK, but the only upcoming episode that is airing that I can see is a repeat of the Un-Bee-Lievable episode. I hope we’ll get to see the end of this series at some point! I’ve already been deprived of the Great American Baking Show ending!

    S11.E04: Around the World in a Day

    I also thought the Carmen "injury" was out of left field. I can't wait until Melissa leaves. She is so over the top and camera hungry. Please leave my TV!!

    America's Test Kitchen

    I feel like I'm committing adultery, but I actually listen to both ATK and Milk Street. I'm obsessed with podcasts and love food podcasts. (other food ones I listen to: the Sporkful, Foodstuff, Gastropod, The Splendid Table, Prince Street, and Bite). They're a nice distraction from all the politics podcasts!

    America's Test Kitchen

    A "new" episode appeared in my feed today - but the intro just said the ATK Radio was taking a hiatus and then they played an episode of "The Splendid Table"

    America's Test Kitchen

    Ha anyone seen the Sticky Bun episode yet? When Bridget and Julia were eating them at the end and then kind of got the giggles, it seemed the most real I've ever seen them. I like them both, but do feel a certain level of phoniness from them. (Maybe the phony comes from pretending to teach someone who already knows). But the end segment was so out of character and real, it made me seek out this board and post. Curious as to other thoughts.

    S03.E06: T.J. Miller vs. Sam Richardson

    I love TJ Miller on Silicon Valley and was looking to his performance here. Was sorely disappointed. I'm not sure he lip synced a single word on the second song? Boo!

    EHG 135: The EHG Crime Omnibus: It's Killer

    Sorry if this is lazy of me to ask, but is there a list somewhere of the crime shows mentioned in the podcast? Especially the "people should watch these" list - I was listening in the car and couldn't write them down. I can relisten if it's a pain to compile, but wasn't sure if the list already existed somewhere that I was missing?

    I thought I had read that Chris would continue to be the host of the ATK radio podcast, but the most recent episode has Bridget as host and so far no mention of Chris (I haven't finished yet). Guessing the lawsuit had an effect on that as well. Yikes.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    Deion was the worst. Did he know this was not charades? And he seemed to do some kind of "dealing cards" mime for half his clues. My DVR cut off halfway through the winner's circle with Rosie. Did they win?

    Match Game

    I didn't like the peer pressure to pick David AG for the final match. I would want to pick a celebrity I matched a lot with so it would increase the chances we would match on the final when there's the most money at stake. Whether he did it on purpose to be goofy or not, he gave some pretty "out there" answers (I still don't get posting horns on FB). I was glad in this instance that they "cheated" and had other celebrities help him get the right answer for piano.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    They seem pretty lenient on some of the winners circle clues. Accepting "parties" for political parties, "Spanish" for Spanish words, etc. I know there were others, but it seems like if you say one word, they'll give you credit. Marvette gave some good clues in the first winners circle. I thought it was unfair to buzz sssss for soda. What if he was going to say Sprite? Things you cheat on: your exams, your taxes, your spouse, your diet.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    Unless the rules are explained much more clearly to the contestants ahead of time (than they are to the audience), I think there are definitely times I would freeze wondering if something was an illegal clue. Would "pink frosted with sprinkles" be an acceptable clue?

    Match Game

    I thought the Peter Dinklage question was mean. For Nurse Jackie, I thought thermometer.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    Some of the players have glommed on to the "opposites" method of getting to the answer better than others. I remember someone was stuck on "odds" (for the horse racing one) and I was like "Not EVENS, but ____" Same for Ladies/Gentlemen. Mario was good. I didn't think Daymond was terrible - he had a few perfect rounds I think. But Barbara was awful. I felt bad for the credit card clue in the winner's circle - seemed like they were setting the person up to say Mastercard and getting buzzed. Needed to be very careful with that one.

    Match Game

    Cheryl seemed a little drunker this episode? I thought of 68 grains of rice for the model one - was trying to think of small food. Doesn't seem to be one obvious answer for this one. For the McDonald's question, I toyed with "Happy Meal" before deciding on Big Mac. The answer of hamburgers was not "on point." Sometimes I feel really stupid when an obvious answer like Old Spice just doesn't enter my brain. I'm sure the contestants might get a little flustered under the time pressure. At least there were no real "hair" answers this week.

    S06.E02: Accounts Payable

    How many times in this series has Rachel told someone she's a lawyer? SHE IS NOT A LAWYER.

    Match Game

    By and large, I enjoyed Leslie - I think she would be perfect if dialed back maybe 5-7%. But she took it seriously, and was funny. I just don't want any one (or two) people to start detracting from the game with the theatrics. (I also follow her on twitter and felt terrible for what she's going through there.) I enjoy Titus on Match Game more than I do on Kimmy. The only other guy on the panel that's made me laugh or smile was Pete Wentz (go figure). I don't get why everyone needs to see each other's answers - wait 2 minutes and you'll find out! Slows down game time and isn't funny. I enjoyed that the questions this episode included some "regular, PG" ones.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    Yeah, I was surprised about feet/foot too. I was also worried they would buzz things you "flip" and "flap"jacks for some reason. I could tell the contestants were trying to be really careful not to misspeak and get buzzed. Is it wrong that for "things you flip" the first thing that came to mind was "the bird! Your middle finger!"? I liked that Bellamy and Weird Al did seem to care very much but were not obnoxious.

    The $100,000 Pyramid

    I was wondering the same thing. Especially in the first round, he seemed to be staring off into space. Look at your partner!!
