    Press Your Luck

    I'm not wild about the host. She always seems to be yelling to be heard above the din of the crowd. According to my cable guide, Tuesday's episode was the 8th episode produced and last night's was the 4th so it's not a matter of her settling into the role. I like the first half where it's all the classic game. The best part of the show, old and new, it the second round where spins are bouncing back and forth and banks are being built and lost. I know it's all part of the game, but I would be so pissed at having spins passed to me. The woman who lost the Jag and the guy who had over $50k and lost it all on the last spin were hard to watch. I'd be cussing out the person who passed me the spins in my head. I'm not wild about the bonus round at all. It's too much like Deal or No Deal with the drawn out decisions, the sob stories, the friends and family rooting section and the personalized prizes. I don't even like the 30 seconds the players yammer on about themselves on Jeopardy so having to sit through 30 minutes of teary-eyed players and spouses (completely with waded up Kleenex daubing their eyes) isn't pleasant. I wish they'd just play two games because I love how true the first round is to the original.

    Card Sharks

    As true as the look Press Your Luck was to the original, the Card Sharks reboot doesn't look anything like the original, save for the Art Deco font. Like others, I thought it was ok. Didn't care for the first two contestants. The guy was an embarrassment, literally pawing a stranger on national TV. The other contestant was also annoying with how arrogant she was, but it was fun watching her face as the guy plowed through all those cards. I felt bad for the second guy hitting all those aces. He'd kill for a hand like that in a poker game but it burned him here.

    Making It

    A Facebook post in May says it's returning for the holidays. I found a Reality Blurred article saying it will be an "event" over two weeks in December. Disappointing. Sounds worse than the 3 week Bake Off show on ABC at Christmas.

    S10.E13: The Honey Don’t List

    None of the designers from the "expansion" (Edward, Kia, Christ and Laura) have been back in the iteration. It's kinda of like when they did the return to Mayberry movie and pretended none of the Mayberry RFD people existed.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    I am annoyed by the GE dishwasher dry boost commercial on two levels. First, it yet another hapless husband / yogurt bitch wife scenario. Second, why do you need to dry an entire load of dishes 3 times faster? If you only have one sippy cup for your kid and it's just been washed, maybe pull it out a dry it with a dishtowel rather than using enough electric to run a whole house for a day to have a machine do what would take 5 seconds to do manually.

    Or you can sell your payments to J.G. Wentworth, if you need cash now.

    NCIS: Los Angeles

    I thought part of bringing back Harm and Mac was to test the waters for a JAG reboot.

    Star Trek: Picard

    Although Picard retired to France and became a vintner, I don't think everything will be as seen in All Good Things. Even then, the crew speculated that it was just one possible future that wouldn't necessarily come true. Especially since they knew about it. Among other things, Picard was suffering from that disease and was a bit of a dottering old man. I certainly hope that's not how they're going to portray him here.
  10. I wouldn't put a whole lot of stock in what the plans are for next season. The show is probably the worst in the Arrowverse for swerving off what the setup in the previous season. Or even in the first half of the season. This year it was like the got all new writers after coming back from the break.

    S10.E11: Training Spaces

    Wait, what? Is this a one off episode of the series or a separate spin off show?

    Star Trek: Picard

    It sounded like Gina Torres to me. Which, if so, he'll yes. So Picard left Starfleet 15 years ago after commanding an Armada that saved the Federation. Even being turned into a Borg didn't make him leave Starfleet so it will be interesting to see what drove him away.
  13. Psycho Pirate was seen during the Elseworlds crossover. He was in Arkham. One theory is that Oliver will take the harbinger role and that the 10 Arrow episodes will be him testing various heroes.

    S04.E16: Hey World!

    Zari's brother being a Legend makes perfect sense. They still would have needed the Wind totem to stop Mallus and it was held by him not Zari. Best part of the episode was The Monitor shaking his head. Like, "the people are total fuck ups. No way I'm inviting them to save the multiverse. Pass the popcorn."

    Card Sharks

    Joel McHale is hosting this so that should be interesting. The game play for this show was pretty simple. It was one thing as a daily morning game show. Not sure how it will work as a weekly prime time show.
