    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I'm conflicted. I thought Nathan was cute, but holy cow... so OTT. Even so, I prefer him to Roey. I felt like the woman in the middle should have gotten credit for bifocalifornia. Tie-breakers are becoming almost commonplace.

    From "Frasier's Imaginary Friend" -- "I am not crazy! I am dating a supermodel zoologist who I stole away from a professional football player and she is off to the Galapagos islands to artificially inseminate iguanas! Is that so hard to believe?" I've probably said it before on this forum, but this whole bit has me in stitches every time, and trust me, I've seen the episode like, a million times. His whole wide-eyed axe-murderer expression and then finally flinging himself onto the couch... it's Kelsey at his most hilarious. Also great are his reactions to Niles' questions in this scene from "The One Where Diane Comes Back." "Any lingering resentment?" "Over what?"

    All Episodes Discussion: The Daily Double

    Aw, bummer. OK, thanks for the reply, @Abstract.

    All Episodes Discussion: The Daily Double

    Does Netflix have Ken's entire run of 74 games? (It's OK if nobody answers this. I'll be on Netflix later today for Stranger Things anyway, so I'll try to remember to check.)

    The Jeopardy! curse was at it again today. There was a clue about the L.A. Angels.

    What is...In the Media?

    Nothing earth-shattering here, just a nice blog post from Ken Levine about Alex. (Ken is a TV writer best known for Cheers, Frasier, M*A*S*H.)
  7. So sorry for your loss, @teebax.
  8. @Abstract, if you like Gregg Hurwitz, you should try Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay, if you haven't already. Lisa Scottoline has a series about an all-female law firm. They are generally quick & light reads.

    Dead To Me

    Just finished the season. This was great storytelling, and as you all have already said, the acting was phenomenal. Christina Applegate was a revelation to me. I've only seen her in comedies. I cried when it was revealed that Abe died. I would recommend After Life (also on Netflix), although maybe you have to be a Ricky Gervais fan? I loved it. Just one season so far, but it will be back for another. And yet another Netflix original: Russian Doll, which at first I didn't think I was going to like, but I stuck with it anyway, and by episode 3, I was completely hooked.

    Those guys were so bleepin' fast on the buzzer. I can't imagine how frustrating that must be. Congrats on getting FJ, @teebax. Good job! How did they determine who got which podium?

    What's the Friends documentary? Is it something new?

    @cleo, you might want to check out Ken Levine's blog; he was one of the writers on the show. He does "Friday questions" every week, so you can read his archives, or (if you have a specific question) you can ask him and maybe he'll select it to answer.

    Quick Vegetarian Meals

    Quick question. I've been vegetarian for decades. The last time I tried any fake "lunchmeats" was ages ago and I didn't find anything I liked. Just wondering if there is something on the market that's actually good, by this time. Anyone? Thanks in advance.
  14. Hey, @Prevailing Wind, if the Purina OM food keeps on working for you and the cats, that's great. But boy, I had a bad situation a few years ago with Purina food with a couple of my kitties (they were littermates), and I did a whole lot of experimenting and research to find a different food that would work. I landed on Halo Sensitive Stomach dry food, which turned out to be a Godsend. Yes, expensive, but it totally solved my cats' problem. Just wanted to share because it took me a lot of time and $$$ to figure that out, but we've been happy campers ever since. Good luck to you and the kitties.

    Thanks for that, @WendyCR72. I thought I'd seen every M*A*S*H blooper ever, but there were a few in there that were new to me.
