    S10.E11: Training Spaces

    Any time spent commenting on this episode is more than the episode deserves, but here goes anyway: It felt like I was watching a cheap, Trading Spaces version of Chopped, but where none of the food was remotely edible, and the judges were so lackluster it didn't seem they bothered to even phone it in. The painting projects turned out least bad of everything else on the show, but I'm shocked--shocked!--that Cayle (?) beat out the girl in round one with a "stool" that couldn't even handle the weight of someone sitting on it. At least his opponent made something that could stand on its own. And Kara was a snot. Between this episode and the recent one where they had to use Sabrina's sister and mother as contestants, I get the feeling that Trading Spaces doesn't have enough, or any, people volunteering to be on the show anymore. Can't say I blame them. I used to love this show, but now it's a chore to get through.

    I said L Train too, and I also knew it was wrong.

    S10.E10: To the Extreme

    I don't even think it was that--it looked more like thin set that is used to tile floors, although Hildi called it "self-leveling floor" something or other, so I think it was quick-set concrete. I've tiled floors before, and scraping thin set off the concrete slab is bad enough. It won't come off the walls without destroying them, so they will have to be taken down and drywalled again if the homeowners don't keep it. Which I imagine they won't. What a disappointing episode. Hildi sucks. The one thing I'll give Ty was that when the homeowners balked at putting straw on the floor, he said okay and didn't do it. Of course then he brought in goats, which is even worse.

    LOL, 10s of acres of almonds in Sac County. Reminds me of Kevin O'Leary on Shark Tank telling an entrepreneur with a mediocre product, "You'll make hundreds!"

    I've lived in Sacramento for 30 years and have never once heard it call the almond capital of anything. Sacramento's nicknames are the Camellia Capital of the World or The Big Tomato. Sacramento doesn't even rate on the CA Almond Board's map of growers in the state, but someone put it on Wikipedia, so I guess that makes it so.

    S10.E01: Battle of the Decades

    My first thought when the episode started: Anyone who wants a '70s themed house/room clearly never lived through the '70s. That said, and while I would never want it in my house, I thought those stripes turned out quite nicely. Very Partridge Familyish. The Frisbee wall was horrible and cheap looking. Why not just paint the remaining walls each a solid color of each stripe and put some artwork on them? The Burt Reynolds homage would have made better wall art than a lumpy seat cushion. I did love the shelf/divider though. Kahi's room was very classy. I thought some of the color choices were off, but overall the style was timeless. The wall color was beautiful in the can, but too dark for the walls. It would have worked as an accent, maybe on one wall with lighter artwork on it, or as highlights throughout the room. The wall screen was cool, as was the Sputnik chandelier, but I wonder how cheesy they look close up?

    S12.E14: The Meteorite Manifestation

    Probably not going to happen, but I've wondered if they could be setting up a Stuart/Denise spin off, although more likely that everyone just gets a happy ending.

    Me too. I was expecting a three-way battle to ring in on that one and couldn't understand why no one was, lol. I was brought up on The Owl and the Pussycat, so runcible spoon was an insta-get for me. Although I was thinking, "Ogden Nash, people. Ogden Nash!" when it was Edward Lear. HG Wells was the only pre-1900 sci fi writer I could think of. No judgment on the answers they gave, but I was surprised no one got it right.

    My son recognized him right away as Ben Franklin from The Office.

    Happened to me, too. I wonder if you and I are in the same viewing area, and the local broadcaster made a mistake? I believe what happened is they skipped a day and showed today's episode yesterday, but somehow the FJ segment was the correct one from the day that was skipped. No one else here seems to have gotten the wrong episode, so I assume it must have been a local issue.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I had to go back and check. The category was Shakespearian opera by aria, and the clue was "Desdemona! Che veggo!" I noticed that Alex hesitated a moment before ruling "Othello" correct, and I wondered at the time if he was also thinking it should be Otello and just let her have it. I wouldn't have.

    Was it "Othello" as an answer in the opera category? I thought Otello was the opera, while Othello is the play.

    S18.E03: Hell's Riders

    I don't think it was a "plan" as much as a CYA move after seeing how his team reacted to his using the pass so early on. He realized they were pissed, so he came up with the lame spy plan to win them back over.

    I only got wrestling, too. The other ones were: quadruple bogie, mir, Spanish-American War, and Simon Bolivar.

    Exactly my thinking. So I said Lucerne.
