    I've always felt there is an underlying tension between Grant and Candice....cannot put my finger on it...

    S07.E07: From Russia with Drugs

    I don't think it necessarily follows that she thought it would not happen in the private sector. She herself said she was excited about the job. Most importantly, for her it was a fresh start. Might be the same thing, might not, but at least she would not have the history and complicated friendships to consider. People don't always leave a situation because they think the next one will be better, some just do it because they are ready for some new bs...and are tired of the same old

    I feel so mean, but I was in the kitchen listening and found myself mumbling, please Avi, please Avi...over and over.....
  5. Yes, I think they share the same ones across different movies and series

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    That was very clumsily worded. My intent was to say that a lot of other kids get ridicule by some of their playmates when they have parents or grandparents that are different. We had a lot of refugees in our school and they liked talking to me. I soon found out that many of them were terrified to have their new school friends over to their house in case they thought their food was "weird" or because their parent or grandparent didn't speak English, or dressed "funny." While they were trying desperately to fit in and sometimes getting teased for their differences, they were really afraid of having just one more thing about them being different. Kids can be so mean to each other...it is unreal the things I have seen and heard. I did not mean to imply that James found it difficult to have a grandparent that did not speak English and I hope it did not read that way. From his words he was very proud of her and wanted to make her proud.

    I don't presume to know James or know his story. I have worked with students in the past for several years. What I can guess is that James was always different...and kids don't always appreciate differences. Whether that is looks, mannerisms, how they dress...down the line. He also mentioned having a grandmother that did not speak English. Depending on where and when he grew up, being different and having a different family was probably not easy for him, and he may have honestly not been engaged with a lot of things other kids were. To me the ultimate success is finding something you love and are good at and figuring out how to get paid for it...as long as it is legal and not harming anyone. That James has found his place in a space that may not have always been welcoming to him is a good thing to me, and he found love....someone who accepts him as he is. He is a quirky person, from his mannerisms to his looks, but it doesn't seem as if he has tried to change himself., rather learned to just be. Sometimes people who have always felt different struggle with feeling confident in certain situations and they can sometimes try to overcome that in a number of ways, some of which can appear awkward or arrogant. Therefore I can't understand why people can't just let him be. Maybe he is not everyone's cup of tea, but I can't be upset with someone for playing the game well. There have been other contestants that I did not connect with for many reasons, but I could not deny their skill, intellect and right to be on the show. I hope he gets many opportunities as a result of this, not that I think he was not doing well before. For those of you that do not like him...I hope you don't leave the show because of it. James is not Jeopardy....and I am always a fan of the show....regardless of who is on it.

    In spite of my cynicism I honestly wish these shows...like those stupid reality shows like the Bachelor....would offer counseling for the participants. Look at this history of these younger stars and what happens to them when shows are over........Eight is Enough, Different Strokes, Family Matters, and even more recent shows. Young stars who had a steady workplace and a work family and when it was over they struggled. You would think that would have shows have a therapist or someone on staff to help them deal with the struggles as they go along.... as well as access to a financial planner....although I think most of the people on there reality shows had problems before they become contestantss

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    Trauma, trauma, everyone has been through trauma, but for most of the posters TRAUMA is only an excuse for the Starks...Arya, Jon, Sansa...everyone else just does things because they want to. Just reading these boards it is kind of sad that this whole show seems to be built on everyone being traumatized in some way... Cersi, Tyrion, Sansa, Jon, Arya, Danny, Greyworm, Missandei as a slave...Theon...I could go on and one. Who has not been raped, tortured or otherwise....sheesh.... That and the shock value. I am just not sure a shocking scene equals GREAT writing....

    Hope everyone is o.k. in the storm path. Great news about Alex!!!! Knew Spongebob immediately yesterday...had a pretty good day today. I James is just trolling fans at this point. It is anybody's guess if he breaks the record. At this point I would not be surprised either way.

    You really can't compare one actor to another...and I never said anything about rehab making him a better actor. What I said was I hoped therapy helped him with his issues....which can be totally separate in my opinion from substance abuse. The reality is he may well already be a great actor, but clearly something is standing in the way. How well an actor acts is always a matter of opinion. I am sure there are some people who thought his acting was fine, and I don't always agree with what other people feel are all star performances. I personally feel that people usually have issues that cause them to turn to substance abuse, so until that underlying thing is addressed they still struggle. In reality some people are still creative and amazing artists even when they struggle with issue and/or substance abuse ....and some are not.

    RE. Austin.....I'd rather watch 20 boring games of James than 20 minutes of Austin....I found myself reaching for the remote in my very long history of watching Jeopardy when he was on and it had NOTHING to do with the amount of money he was winning.... Maybe I am getting smarter, but in the past few weeks I have been able to pretty much keep up. Today was not a good day because I do not really enjoy Shakespeare....so sue me! I am sure they will stop James from the shout outs soon. I hope he does break Ken's record of money, but it is doubtful he will break his record for number of games. Either way, they are both great players that had interesting runs for different reasons. By the way..one day last week one of the contestants that did not compete in final Jeopardy came back out at the end...it made me start to think if they always do that...and then a few games later that person did not come out.....what's the norm on that? I guess I never paid attention.

    Yes, but engaging in social media and letting it influence you is a choice. I am not saying it is o.k. for people to do abuse others but I am not really on social media. A friend just watched something with Anthony Mackie and he stated he is not on social media, and only checks his phone a few times a day. People need to stop putting so much value on social media and start engaging with real people more. When you see it is negative, just stay away from it. People get obsessive checking it and worrying about anonymous posters. It really is a shame that it has affected so many people when if used correctly it could be positive.
