    The $100,000 Pyramid

    I've had a bunch of these sitting on my DVR, and I finally got around to watching the Gronk/Edelman episode. It was entirely the train wreck I had hoped for and so much more...

    Top Gun: Maverick (2020)

    This is annoying: https://www.businessinsider.com/top-guns-maverick-appears-changed-to-please-chinas-communist-party-2019-7

    Cats (2019)

    How did nobody, at no point during this entire process, not say "Hmm, y'know, maybe not."?

    S03.E02: Chapter Two: The Mall Rats

    They may find words that way, but they wouldn't find the inflections. Granted, for what they're doing, that may not matter, since if it is some sort of code phrase as they're assuming (I've only watched up to this episode so far), things like case/number/tense may not matter if they can get "close enough" to the intended phrase. I did laugh, though--I had that exact same edition of that dictionary, also bought in 1985! A bonus bit of nostalgia for me.

    The Star Wars Saga

    I went Friday, and was very impressed. The level of immersive detail is truly amazing, and there are so many little things to look at and interact with that you can easily spend hours without even touching the attraction(s). The crowds are managed -very- well right now, with their mandatory reservation system—it will be interesting to see how it is in another month when that ends.

    This threw me during the show as well, since I also assumed this was the case, given the current award timeline. But the Vanity Fair article linked earlier made me check--in 1973, the Tonys were March 25, and the Oscars March 27. That's a lot of hardware over two days.

    Modern Family in the Media

    Looks like they're filming on Caltech's campus today. No idea if that's anything to do with Alex, or if they just have a random location they liked.

    Super Bowl LIII: The Live Chat Topic

    Someone's reading this board...
  9. I've noticed the pizza boxes before, but it was pretty clearly displayed in this episode as they were walking in: the gang evidently gets their pizza from Barone's. They must really like it, as that's a bit of a drive from Pasadena...but it does explain why they don't get delivery.

    S04.E05: I'm So Happy for You

    I did too, for the same reasons. I'll admit, I let out a "nice!" when it went into letterbox (and then wondered if they filmed it in both CinemaScope and Todd-AO).

    S05E04: Requiem

    I've deleted it, so I can't check, but I thought he was already overseas, and had returned in time to fly the mission on which he was killed. Either way, something else bugged me--if they were denying him military honors at his funeral, wouldn't that also include the flag on his casket?
  12. I love the classic What's My Line, and have been watching the 70s color incarnation that's been on BUZZR this month--man, is it bad. For me, the beauty of the game is its simplicity (and the manners and style of the 50s/60s are refreshing from a fifty-year-later point of view). This 70s version adds too much extra fluff--little games or product demos that take enough time away that many of the guests' sessions are ended early, with the panel not having the full chance to guess. And wow, I can't stand Soupy Sales...

    Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    Technically this probably ought to be in the media thread, but I thought it was worthy of inclusion here: http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/tv/ct-ent-jeopardy-vincent-valenzuela-20180716-story.html

    Season 14 (2018) Discussion

    I'm so glad to hear that, although to be fair, this week's was the one celebrity guest I could get behind.
  15. I saw Minister Chen (well, Francis Jue) in Soft Power last night in Los Angeles. It's an...interesting...show. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/la-et-cm-soft-power-review-20180518-story.html
