  1. I've been wondering how the people on the current games are feeling while watching them, knowing that they were among the last to meet Alex.
  2. My favorite is Nastia Liukin's subway-car Charleston with Sasha and Derek (Sasha filling in for the main part of the dance because Derek was injured), with Andy Grammer singing live.
  3. Based on the original end date of December 25th, I think it should be 24 new episodes including tonight's (Nov 24). (Assuming there was no break for Thanksgiving, though it may get preempted that day...)
  4. They kept banking after one question. Drove me nuts. (Though at the rate they were going, if they didn't they wouldn't have had any money.)
  5. I'm from Bruce's home town so I better have gotten that one. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (That album was released 37 days before I was born.)
  6. I agree. You need someone who is smart and can read the clues smoothly, but I think they need a sense of humor, too. There's often humor in the games, like when they have a theme across the category titles, and often in the clues themselves (that category a few days ago when all the correct responses were nay-nay/na-na, anyone?). It also gives them a chance for feedback from the audience before locking someone in long-term. (And you know they'll get it!) I like Ken but he always feels a little awkward to me. He just doesn't come across as a smooth "host" type personality. That said, the host would have to be really bad for me to give up Jeopardy. I don't watch just for the host.
  7. There's already a Who is... Alex Trebek's replacement? thread.
  8. I wonder if the guest hosts are like live auditions for their short list or if they've already decided and this is just a way to ease the transition.
  9. "The supermodel definitely knows how to wear a dress!" Are ya' sure about that? "Tyra is working with stylist Brendon Alexander, of whom she says, 'his mind is bananas.'" That I will agree with.
  10. Just gonna leave this here...
  11. My stream of (semi)consciousness as I watched: Why is Tyra wearing a giant blue bedspread and sneakers? (Or, as my friend put it, "Holy blue marshmallow!") The sound people really don't want us to hear her, do they? I liked Kaitlyn's AT but man those lights were distracting. Costume change: Now what the hell does she have on her head? (My friend said "Any bets on how many outfits sheโ€™ll have? I say 5.") Points to Nelly for auctioning off his dance shoes for charity. I hope to all the gods I don't believe in that this is the last time I ever hear about Nev's chest hair. Why does Tyra keep putting her hand on her belly? I love watching Derek dance. That was fun. Nelly's freestyle: That was...um... Dress 3...yeah, no. I love it when they revisit the early-exiters and I've totally forgotten they were even on the show. Kaitlyn & Artem freestyle: That was lots of fun. Nev & Jenna's freestyle made me want to go watch Tom Holland's Lip Sync Battle performance again. Of course Derek's notebook is a collage of himself. Justina freestyle: was she really lifting him? I think my favorite freestyle was Kaitlyn, then Nev. I don't really care who wins. I wonder if Pasha and Daniella dance like that around the house... The last over-dramatic announcements of the season! Woo! JUST SAY IT ALREADY! Nev was the better dancer but I like Artem better than Jenna, so...I'm okay with this. 'Til next time! Assuming there is a next time.
  12. Of all categories, the one I ran was Hammers...? (also Internal Organs). Re: the dagger clue - I just watched Macbeth (with Patrick Stewart) last night! Henry reminds me of Ryan Gosling in We Are the Titans (it's the hair).
  13. Did they realize a lot of stations might preempt them on Christmas? Someone wrote on that post, "I love that he brings us out of 2020 and into 2021, where hopefully better times await." Let's hope so!
  14. "Wow...my internet connection is terrible today...everyone must be doing zoom dinner!" Oops. ๐Ÿ˜›
  15. Explore an array of unique competitions, from the quirky to the bizarre, and meet their passionate communities in this docuseries. Talk about it here!
  16. Was just listening to the More or Less podcast from the BBC about the risk of gatherings. They talked about a risk assessment tool developed at Georgia Tech...you can put in the number of people (from 10-5000) and see what the risk of someone there having covid is in different areas (for 10 people in my county it's 17%...100 people and it's 77%. I moved it to 5000 and the whole country turned dark red (>99%) except for a handful of tiny pockets that are somehow very low. "The risk level is the estimated chance (0-100%) that at least 1 COVID-19 positive individual will be present at an event in a county, given the size of the event." https://covid19risk.biosci.gatech.edu/ On a lighter note, it's cloudy and in the low 50s here but I just took a walk outside. Smells like fireplace smoke.
  17. We usually do a big family thing at my uncle's (though it's been smaller in recent years; a few years ago it was only 9 of us, plus my cousin's elderly cat who couldn't be left overnight, and his son who slept through dinner). My mom told him over a month ago that we wouldn't be coming. My parents are making dinner, and my brother and I will go, and we will eat in the living room where we can be further apart, and wear masks when we're not eating (same as we did for my dad's birthday last week). I assume Christmas will be the same. And I usually go to my friend's for New Year's Eve, and it's mostly just us and her husband and 2 kids, but I think I will probably stay home this year. According to the map here, all but one county in NJ is red. Most of the country is red.
  18. Anyone else cringe at the kids playing chubby bunny? That's a great way to choke and the Heimlich doesn't work very well on marshmallows...
  19. Yeah, that rent amount would be considered part of her compensation, but that doesn't pay for food or utilities.
  20. I've only ever heard of dialysis for kidney disease but I just googled and liver dialysis is a thing. Just at the scene where she talks to the kids and Amelia wants to talk about her directives in case she dies...uh, maybe that's not something you want to talk about in front of the young children?
  21. $$$$$$ That particular apartment is the building manager's (who I assume also gets a salary) so why would she want to spend money (even if the contractor is doing it at cost) to upgrade an apartment she can't rent out? (Though I guess she could get rid of Bonnie after it's done and put the new manager in a different unit.)
  22. It's called "Mighty Little Man," by Steve Burns - Steve from Blues Clues! ๐Ÿ˜„ https://www.tvguide.com/news/young-sheldon-theme-song-steve-blues-clues/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Songs_for_Dustmites
  23. I used to be able to play Memory on the piano...the sheet music is probably still in the bench at my parents' house.
