    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I was rooting for JJ since she took such obvious delight in being there. Also she knew The Friends of Eddie Coyle. It's one of my favorite small movies.

    I was right there with you Browncoat following the same route to FJ. I remember getting totally creeped out the first time I read The Lottery. Somewhat sad the the Woody Guthrie quote was a TS and perplexed as to how a guitar was supposed to kill trees.

    Haven't been posting in awhile but have been enjoying reading yours. From Wednesday's show, I never thought I would be grateful to Ezra Pound for anything (his politics are abhorrent to me) but I will thank him for convincing T.S. Eliot to shorten The Wasteland by half. I still twitch from memories of reading it in college. From tonight's show, FJ was an instaget. Murphy Brown was one of my favorite shows back in the day and I was amused that the two men got it wrong and the only woman got it right.

    I just caught the first few minutes before needing to go run some errands but I did love the twinkle in Max Gail's eyes when he referenced Barney Miller among his favorite TV shows. Mine too, Max, mine too.

    Count me in with Browncoat who got to FJ through thinking that the poet must be Indian. I haven't read much Indian poetry since a high school World Lit class overdid Santha Rama Rau so I didn't know the poet mentioned in the clue but it seemed like my thoughts were right. Gutsy bet by the new champ who didn't bother me as he apparently did others. I just thought he was excited to be there.

    All My Sons was my late father's favorite Miller play. My dad was D Day plus 10 so.he has been on my mind a lot lately. He was always moved by the line "They were all my sons", probably in light of the men in his unit who didn't make it through. Both of us loved The Crucible.

    She guessed Moon for the Misbegotten which I have never seen but I know it is by Eugene O'Neill and does involve the end of the life of the character based on his brother (Jamie Tyrone from Long Day's Journey into Night) so it wasn't a bad guess. I have seen Salesman enough to picture the graveside scene. I enjoy it but it's not my favorite Miller play - I prefer All My Sons or The Crucible. It was a good game all around.

    I will miss the show desperately but as long as I can watch it somewhere (streaming or dvds), I can handle it. It is truly one of my favorite go tos when I feel glum. I can pick just about any episode and feel better by watching. There is something to be said for leaving on your own terms and this talented cast will be fun to watch in other projects. That being said, D'Arcy Carden needs to get an Emmy nomination before the show ends.

    Mystery Author - Congratulations to your daughter! I too love Musicals even though my only talent is as an audience member. It is going to take me the rest of the day to get Shipoopi out of my brain however. Oh well, I didn't have big plans anyway.

    I forgot to post yesterday but the Gordon Lightfoot TS hurt. I am old enough to remember the coverage of the actual Edmund Fitzgerald sinking and of course the song played every where. CKLW was such a mega watt station that I remember a dorm neighbor at William and Mary telling me she used to listen to it in Cleveland on a clear night. Speaking of W&M, loved the shout out to the Wren Building. I had many English classes there back in the day and once had a final interrupted by a tour group that took a wrong turn on the second floor. Plus seniors get to ring the Wren bell on the last day of classes. So many other wonderful memories rolling around my brain - thanks Jeopardy.

    "The View": Week of 6/3/2019

    Oh no ladies- don't try to explain Jeopardy, especially if you didn't watch James' amazing run. He played hard, won and lost graciously (take a note, Sunny) & will be fine. On last night's show, he didn't get two of the three Double Jeopardy clues and his opponent was able to capitalize on them, just as he would have.

    I enjoyed watching James during his run and will be interested in seeing him in the TOC. Having been a losing political candidate in my past who actually ended up on stage informing the supporters of the winner that she had beaten me (definitely a weird night), I appreciate someone who can lose and win graciously and James has done both. Bravo! P.S. I knew the high five would get flack but Mother Grundoon and I both thought it was well intentioned on James' part.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I really enjoyed the Musicals from Literature category tonight - it's been added to my list of dream categories should I ever be lucky enough to qualify for the show. My favorite clue mentioned Big River which I got to see in the original production (the cast included a young John Goodman) and then again about 16 years ago with a combined hearing and hearing impaired cast that gave one of my favorite Broadway performances ever, going from singing to signing effortlessly and effectively. One song caused both Mother Grundoon and me to burst into tears (we weren't alone). Since James ran most of the category, I was rooting for him in FJ. He also seemed to be showing good sportsmanship even when he was trailing Nate.

    I felt sad that the Sherman Brothers was a TS. So many wonderful songs of my childhood are attributable to them ( and are now playing on a loop in my head).
