    Whiskey Cavalier

    There was a new episode tonight? My schedule did not say "new" and the description sounded familiar, so I didn't watch. Is there a summary somewhere?
  2. Whereas Georgie seems like the sort who might live with his parents until he's 30, unless there is a shotgun marriage in his future.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Reminds me of one of the times Ken Jennings was on "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me." They good-naturedly wrote questions in categories they thought he might be weaker at (e.g. alcoholic beverages since he is LDS) but he got them anyway.

    S02.E21: Stuck as Foretold

    Is everyone waiting to see Bell's other face again? Some shows would have Nic's father die in a car accident, so her sister would get his kidney after all. Then the sister would relapse ...

    S02.E13: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow

    Yes. But, @Driad, did you know that and were you just making pun of it? Exactly. Apparently I should have added a smiley.

    S05. E20. Better Angels

    Don't most POTUSes have an embarrassing sibling? Except when POTUS *is* the embarrassing sibling, of course.

    S08.E04: Episode 4

    Could Dr. Turner legally have offered Jeannie a permanent solution (e.g. tubal ligation) after she had the third child? If the mother wasn't racist, I don't get why she was so angry at her daughter & husband. Seemed to be because they were poor?

    Kirk went pear shaped but Picard didn't. Ed Mercer does not seem to be so far.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Someone who wanted to quibble about Friday's Jeopardy (A “VI” has followed these 3 royal names of English kings) could point out that James I of England was also James VI of Scotland. But since there were three King Whoever VI of England, this would probably not be accepted unless it was dark on a Tuesday.

    The Media Thread Emanation

    Stephen Colbert said that on May 16 after the BBT finale, the cast will be on The Late Show.

    He's getting a sex change and a red hair transplant, and we'll see him in the finale. I'd prefer Allison Janney though.

    S02.E12: Sanctuary

    Exactly. I would have enjoyed this more if I understood Moclan genders. Apparently we are supposed to equate "male" with those who toe the Moclan line, and "female" with those who do not, but that comparison does not fit well.

    Why isn't there a forum for Masterpiece, with subfora for short-running shows, as we had before?

    "A Jury of Her Peers" is a good story IMO.

    S12.E18: The Laureate Accumulation

    It might be more more realistic if someone told Shamy et al. that they might be considered for a Nobel in 10 or 20 years if their work is well confirmed. The Nobel Foundation would be wise to be cautious about not awarding prizes too soon. For example, the originator of the frontal lobotomy shared the medicine prize in 1949, but there have been calls for the foundation to rescind the prize.

    Probably there are two kinds of astronauts: those who admit they are frightened, and those who don't.
