    S04.E20: More Harm Than Good

    That patient was mentally ill and bought into a cult. She was irrational, out of control, and spiraling. Killing herself would have solved nothing. Most people who would have heard about her story would have assumed that she was mentally ill, and they would be right. That said, she would eventually kill herself anyway, so unless the doctors were prepared to find a way to have her institutionalized they were wasting their time. IMO, there is no doubt that the people (cult leaders) that were running that website were in no way going to kill themselves. That's what that cult's followers are for. The only way to try and get that woman to change her mind was to ask her why weren't the cult leaders killing themselves? But she was so irrational, she probably would have died before the doctors had any hope of changing her mind about killing herself.

    I will take "Annoying Amazon Products" for a $1000, Alex.

    Yes, the woman was given the drugs.

    That whole "Alexa" thing is annoying the crap out of me. I hope that isn't going to be a continuous thing on "Jeopardy".

    In the end, the woman did get those drugs. Of course the supply was limited. I wonder who Ruzek is going to end up in bed with next? Perhaps back with Burgess?

    S04.E20: More Harm Than Good

    If the woman didn't want to be treated, and just wanted to die, then why waste the bed space? I know I sound heartless, but it seems to me that doctors and nurses have better things to do than to help those who don't want to be helped. As for all the relationship crap that goes on, on this show, enough is enough. The doctors and nurses are supposed to act like adults, not immature high school students.

    S7 E20: Try Like Hell

    It was totally unnecessary, but I am not surprised they did this. I guessed "Emergency" as soon as I knew that the answer was a television show. "Emergency" went off the air long before most (if not all) of those characters that were playing charades were even born. It is rarely shown in syndication, so I am not sure where the characters would have watched the show. But then again, "Emergency" also aired on NBC, so I am not surprised that the writer's went there.

    I remember those cartoons. The Aardvark was voiced by John Byner. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Byner The Aardvark's voice sounds to me like a combination of Jackie Mason and Bernie Sanders. Byner was also the voice of the Ant and he does sound very much like Dean Martin.

    Quick Vegetarian Meals

    Both Tofurky and Lightlife are good. I do like the Quorn roast. I like to add spices like rosemary to it as it cooks which means I have to change the way they say to cook it. Gardein is pretty good. They have a lot of variety to choose from. Morningstar Farms and Boca are also pretty good. My one major gripe. I would hope that all of those companies would find a way to lower the sodium levels in their foods.

    As a vegetarian and an animal lover, that makes me sad. Though I am tempted to ask, one hump or two.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    The novelty of James' success and how he plays the game is wearing off. I appreciate how good he is at the game, but now I am at a point where I would hope that someone would at least make the game competitive, if not flat out beat him. I have nothing against the dude. He seems like a nice guy, toothy smile and all. I just feel like I am watching the same tired episode over and over again. They bring on new competitors, but the results are the same. Non-competitive games.

    Indispensable Kitchen Gadgets

    I have a really small food processor that I tried making hummus in once. Once was enough. It made one heck of a mess.

    Indispensable Kitchen Gadgets

    It is a plastic unit (Borner) with a metal blade. I have had it for years. I mostly use it for slicing tomatoes, potatoes, and onions. I am surprised that the blade is still sharp. It came with other bladed inserts that I use for making steak fry potatoes, shoestring potatoes, match stick potatoes, etc.

    In the litigious society we live in, I won't hesitate to use "in my opinion" if I think it is necessary to do so. As vile as social media can often be, it is important to discern opinion from fact. Too often opinion is viewed as fact. Too often gossip is viewed as fact. James should have been dinged for calling the "Cubs" the "Cubbies". Alex should have thrown that "Las Vegas" answer out after I felt he gave James a hint to "Las Vegas" being the answer. I thought Alex told him the other day that some viewers weren't happy with his game play or something like that? James isn't doing anything wrong and he shouldn't be viewed as a horrible human being for playing the way he plays. I can't hate the guy for being successful. I do wonder if he is having a problem dealing with the negative feedback he is getting from the way he plays.
