    Probably. I think it's taking over SWAT's time slot, which is Thurs @ 10/9c.

    Episode ideas/episodes you'd like to see

    Wasn't there an SVU where the perp was transgender and had to be incarcerated in a men's prison, since she was technically male???? It wasn't the whole episode, just something thrown in at the end.

    Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Week 31: 5/5 Overall: 98/153 (11 *). The questions must be getting easier or I'm getting smarter! I had only two 5/5 weeks in the first 21 weeks, then nothing, but now I've had 5/5 in two of the last 3 weeks!!!

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I read an article in the paper about a study (several years ago) about directions. They were testing mice (rats?) in a maze that had symbols at various intersections. They would time how long it told the mice to complete the maze, over and over. Eventually, they would remove the symbols and retest the mice. They found that the male mice would do the maze in about the same amount of time as they did with the symbols, but the female mice would take longer. Their conclusion was that the female mice had learned "take a left at the triangle", but the male mice just learned at what point to take that left. So when the symbol was removed, the male mice knew where to take that left, because they had not paid any attention to the symbol, but the female mice were confused, because they relied on the triangle!

    Question: If he loses tomorrow, does he still qualify for TOC, with only 3 wins, even if he has $240K???? How does it work?

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    To question 1: I'm thinking within the last 24 hours. As to question 2: Popping over to look at the main page (primetimer.com), it seems to me to be an "entertainment news" type thing. However, when you click "forums" (upper right) from that main page, you do get to here with the same "forums.previously.tv" url. Whether it will eventually become "forum.primetimer" remains to be seen. So, if you only visited the forums and not the main "previously.tv" site, you won't notice any difference.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Oh, and Chicago area people? Cubs opener at 1 pm on Channel 7 Monday, so Jeopardy won't be on at its normal time (probably broadcast at 1, 2, 3, whatever, a.m. Check listings).

    S09.E.20: Ke ala o ka pū (Way of the Gun)

    BTW, did I miss something? Danny says to the customer "hold the pressure until the ambulance comes". Fine, but....did anyone call the ambulance/police? She couldn't do it...she was (a) terrified before Danny called her over and (b) holding the pressure with both hands after. There certainly was no "silent alarm" that the store clerk could have triggered and Danny had no time to call it in either. He grabs a gun, heads out after the thief and only after he loses the thief does he call it in about losing the thief "in the robbery", as if 911 (which is who I think he called) already knew about the robbery & he was just following up with where he lost the thief and, in fact, 911 was sending a squad car/detectives, but said nothing about an ambulance! No wonder the clerk bled out!!!

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I was doing the same thing--Lisbon? Madrid? Athens (which probably isn't even Europe)? I think I was just starting to work on London when time ran out. To be fair, even if I had gotten to Germany, I don't think I would have realized it was right, since I think I might have recognized Bern as a city in Switzerland, I don't think I would have known it was the capital (gun to my head, I would have said Zurich or Geneva (both 6 letters, btw) as the capital).

    What is...In the Media?

    I think that is not a "current Alex quote" (that is, something they've taken from an upcoming episode). I'm pretty sure I heard him say that before, about someone else. I think they just took that sound bite (from before) to try to make it seem as if it's about an upcoming "super champ". I also agree with a previous poster that I think it's just trying to push the online tests ("The next great J! champ awaits. Will it be you?" type of thing)
