     S14.E04: Auditions 4 - June 18, 2019

    Hanta the rat was cute. I was a little afraid for her when Melissa(?) raised her above her head after they voted them through. I kinda love that they're named after diseases (and was kinda bugged by the fact that Gabrielle kept saying"Henta"). A new twist on the "Stop! Sing something else!" cliche... "Stop! Sing it a capella!" isn't any better, Simon. (And who actually believes those things aren't totally staged?) Card guy didn't hold my attention...I kept looking at my computer. Can't stand that screamy music. Julianne always has the weirdest expression on her face. Like she's confused and slightly horrified at the same time. And that was just watching a kid plugging in his guitar. That guitar kid was pretty damn cool, though. Karaoke singer should not have been that funny. And yet. The military quartet was really good. Though I'll admit I was busy making cinnamon toast during the backstory part so I was only half listening. I was waiting for them to get Terry to play the flute. 🙂 I did not expect a stripping flautist.... Slightly amused by all the pearl-clutching "I thought this was a family show!" comments on Facebook. Dominguez Poodle Review gets my vote for the name alone. I can't imagine living in an RV with 9 dogs and 4 people. I knew as soon as the French group said they were "vocal performers" they weren't just gonna sing. Not my kinda music generally, but that was pretty cool. 9:51. Big youth choir from Detroit. Terry tells the director "I'm from Flint!" Let's see if he hits the Golden Buzzer for them, shall we? (Edit; Okay, I didn't expect the rapping and dancing. I like that they did something different for a choir.)

    Me, too! I can't believe Simon laughed that much. Now I'm trying to think of what other one-word song he might do...and coming up with nothing..

    Lip Sync Battle

    I haven't watched in a while for the same reasons. But I was looking for something else and saw this thread had recent posts so I thought I'd see if it had gotten any better, so I just pulled up the Big Bird episode on demand. Jason standing next to BB is hilarious. Don't see Matt and Akbar up there but I'll have to check back.

    Me, too. Constance even lifted her glass (which looked like white wine).

    Card Sharks

    That they are. (Though I've always been partial to the Echo and the Bunnymen version. I'll credit and/or blame The Lost Boys for that.)

    "Turns out there was a third person in the Garden of Eden, Constance Zimmer. The snake tried to tempt her with an apple but Constance held out for an apple [blank]."

    Card Sharks

    Why is he attempting a British(?) accent when he makes his wagers?

    Card Sharks

    Okay, I just started watching, on the first question, and this guy is annoying me already.

    Match Game

    I thought Rock the Boat, Rock the Casbah and Rock the Vote, in that order (I always try to come up with three before the celebs give their answers). I had Rock the Casbah in my head the rest of the night. I had the exact same thought, almost verbatim. I've never even heard of Bridget whoever. (I've seen the other woman but I'm blanking on her name now.) Didn't find her especially funny.

    Guess I'm just getting old, then... 😜

    Card Sharks

    I'm sure they do. They'd never want me because I'd be boring. Sometimes such people are fun to watch but after a while they get annoying.

    Press Your Luck

    Was there less yelling and screaming on this show when I was a kid or do I just not remember how much there was? Or maybe I just have less tolerance for it. I've generally been enjoying these rebooted games (still waiting for Hollywood Squares!) but this got to be a little much by the end of an hour.

    S07.E24: Sean

    Maybe dad didn't give permission to record or air it. Someone else mentioned that they can't record a call without permission so the grandfather call was probably a reenactment. I suspect grandpa isn't exactly a master thespian. He already knew and most likely had some time to process the information. Given Sean's situation, his family has probably been prepared for this for a while now. Your average person probably isn't going to sound especially emotional in recreating such a phone call. My mom informed me of her sister's death last year via a text the morning after she died. We had all been there the day before (she did not appear to be aware of our presence, but who knows?), and she passed in the middle of the night, after everyone had gone home, or gone to sleep. We were expecting it, and in some ways it was a relief, because she had been suffering for a long time. So I was sad, but I didn't break down crying or anything. If I had to later reenact the moment I found out for a TV show...you probably wouldn't think much of my reaction. (We’ve had a couple of unexpected deaths in the family in the past couple years and my mom would never have texted me about those. The first one was my cousin, and my dad told me and my mom together in person; the other was his brother's ex-wife, and my parents called me and told me over the phone. Just so no one thinks my parents would normally convey such news via text.)

    Well, it's been real. Sad ending, but not surprising. BTW, I am now out of Irish Cream Brownie ice cream. See you all next week.

    Music got super ominous all of a sudden, and I looked at the clock and saw there was only two minutes left..
