  1. Whoops didn't mean to start something! Just commenting on the juxtaposition of the commercials and their possible intended audiences 😞 Although I guess the individual ads deserve scrutiny on their own.
  2. Not the commercial itself that made me scratch my head, but the placement. Watching Whose Line last night, within the same break there were commercials for the pill that helps prevent HIV/AIDS (or something like that) and a publishing service for Christian authors. I'd like to see the Venn diagram of Whose Line audience and the target audiences of those two ads.

    The Good Fight

    They didn't a couple weeks ago, but they do now - thanks for the reminder! About a dozen people figured that out before I did, but at least I should have plenty of time to finish season 1.

    The Good Fight

    I know the newer episodes are All Access-only, but it seems (last time I checked) that you can't even stream the season 1 episodes (that they just broadcast) on the CBS website - it just directs you to All Access. So either catch (or record) them on Sunday nights, or pony up, apparently. But, someone upthread mentioned that their library has the Season 1 DVDs, and I discovered that mine does too. So I'm on the list, in case I don't catch all the summer episodes.

    Celebrity Family Feud

    Right! There were at least a couple other times when they accepted something that seemed like less of a match. "Sports coat" for tuxedo, for one. Can't remember the others now.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    All those are a lot harder costumes to put together than a red polo/khakis, or an apron 🙂

    The Actors In Other Roles: All the Credits

    Since this popped back up... the daughter (Sarah Baker, although I couldn't have told you her name with a gun to my head) is Young Sheldon's school librarian. I like her in both but they're fairly different roles. And I don't watch Big Little Lies, but it was interesting see that both she and her Young Sheldon costar are in that.
  8. I was kind of questioning Erica's math when she calculated that it would take them 12 days and change (some very precise figure) to get back. But Dustin seemed to accept it, so either I missed something, or he's not as much of a math nerd as he thinks he is.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    A couple Halloweens ago, we had a pair of trick-or-treaters dressed as Flo and Jake from State Farm (although this is the wrong thread for that, since they didn't annoy or irritate us at all!) So this year, should we expect a LiMu, and a ...? Gecko maybe?

    As Seen On TV: Does ANY of this crap work?

    I'm the one who originally mentioned the stuff, and I was talking about the "Shower" version. I don't know if there's anything special about mobile home showers, but mine's a 70's-80's era, one piece (vinyl, or fiberglass, maybe?) with glass doors, and it works great for me with no scrubbing. I think @funky-rat was the one who mentioned the outdoor version for mobile homes. I've used it on a wooden deck and a concrete driveway. It made a little difference but not dramatic. They weren't too bad to begin with, though. You can see tons of reviews (& pictures) online.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Thanks to a college roommate, I know Mr. Rogers was from Latrobe, so Pittsburgh didn't connect with me. Okay, I guess it was the nearest city with TV stations...

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I admit I was only half paying attention. It seemed like it had something to do with songs...? Oh well, looking it up is a project for tomorrow.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I've never heard it called anything other than medfly! And can anyone enlighten me on the leid(?) category? Did I miss an explanation, or do I just have a gaping hole in my knowledge? And by the way, I'm doubling down on thinking the champ looks like a young Will Forte.

    Got it - capitol is only the one with the rotunda. I probably knew that at some point in my life and forgot it.

    My very elegant mother just served us nine pizzas. You could replace the last two words with “nothing“ or “nachos“, depending on how generous you’re feeling.
