    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    The rule limiting champions to 5 consecutive wins changed back in 2003, so I suppose a limitation on wins could be imposed beginning with next season. Otherwise it may be weeks, months, or years before we see a new champion.
  2. I had one who was a drooler at the vet. Sometimes she would also have 'bowel incontinence' in new situations, including when I took her for a meet and greet with a prospective adopter. We were fostering her at the time, but that was the day we decided to adopt her ourselves. She had a dry eye condition, so had to have eyes cleaned and drops put in twice a day. I still miss that little girl. This is her in her Snoopy bed.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    The thing that makes James' strategy work is that by going to the bottom and getting the correct answers for the $1k and $2k clues means he has more to bet when the DD are chosen. So if he got all 6 $200 clues correctly before he hit the DD, then he has only $1,200 to bet. If he gets all 6 $1k before he hits the DD, he has $6k to bet, and (assuming the answer is correct) he would have $12k instead of $2,400 going into round 2, even if he answers no other questions in round 1. And so it goes. I still groan and roll my eyes when he gets the third DD, because by that time, the game is all but over. I'll preface by stating that I'm not a sports fan and watch very little. I usually don't watch the Super Bowl, and sometimes don't look at anything other than a few of the ads after the fact. However, I would be more likely to tune in to even a few minutes of the SB if the outcome didn't seem to be a foregone conclusion. I still like Jeopardy!, but I like to watch it more when it's a contest and not a steamroller. Runaways aren't nearly as fun to watch as a close game is. In my humble opinion.

    SO3.E23 A Mom's Parade

    I remember Katy's singing voice from her role as Victoria in Mike & Molly. There was a poignant scene where she was making up a dearly departed (she played a make-up artist for a funeral home) and she softly sang "Paparazzi." I think there were a few other times with her singing, always good.

    S01.E23 Irish Goodbye

    That's where I remembered her from! She looked familiar, but I couldn't place her! Watching this one was bittersweet. Cleary's we hardly knew ye!

    SO3.E23 A Mom's Parade

    Aw, I love the musicals! Heck, I still miss Cop Rock! Plus, Katy has the chops, so it worked for me. Not sure any of the kids really learned anything at all, but at least Katie got a couple of Thank yous. Poor Greg! I appreciate his interest in the history of the area. No way should they have taken the flag out of the case, though.

    I have two more episodes in Season 2 to watch. The supernatural/superstition stuff in episode 6 was kind of eerie. Also, how long have we understood the science behind the solar eclipse, and how eyes can be damaged by looking directly at one? Glad Massinger is done for, good riddance, but how it was done was pretty brutal. And how many times are they going to dig up Castell?!!! I’m liking Temperence better, but she’d best watch herself around the Governor.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    I’m annoyed at the Mazda 3 commercial that uses the same music as the University of Phoenix commercial where the woman gets her degree, and changes the poster to say, We can do IT. With so many pieces of music to choose from, they couldn’t find a different one?
  9. Yes, however, since Georgie arranged for the cable and George didn't know how it was set up, he probably didn't know how that worked. An installation tech explained it to me, but if not for him, I don't know how I would have figured it out. I liked this whole episode. I hope John is able to recover from his breakdown and be back, and better, with Connie for next season. Loved Missy trying to explain to Sheldon that he might want to lower his expectations, and he didn't "get it." Loved the ending montage! I rarely watched TBBT, but I mostly knew who the characters as children were. And Sheldon admitted to being wrong!

    What is...In the Media?

    I watched the CBS Sunday Morning Trebek interview tonight. Very interesting, and Jane was a good choice to conduct the interview. I also didn’t realize that he was wearing “not his own hair,” for lack of a better term. He really looks good, and what a work ethic he has!

    How are they connected? Priscilla (Mullens) and John Alden, and Standish were Massachusetts. Mullins and Alden arrived in 1630. Pocahontas was Jamestown, Virginia colony, circa 1607. She married John Rolfe (not Smith), and is buried in Gravesend, England.

    S03. E22. Pillar of Salt

    I got the impression that Bull phrased that deliberately to get that reaction, to learn how the suspect thought of herself as a mother. I don't remember enough of Bull and his ex-wife as a couple, but I can't help but think them getting back together isn't a good idea, baby or no. Would certainly change the dynamic of Bull being work obsessed. Also not sure why Marissa changed her mind about having a baby. Was it so she wouldn't have to tell her husband that his sperm were deficient? Please, he's an adult. Give him the information so you can decide together what to do!

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    With the Caroline answer, they should have asked BMS, to get the last name. I've only heard her referred to as (Princess) Lee Radziwill and didn't know that Lee wasn't her first name. I knew Switzerland, Jane Addams, Mountain Dew, and FJ, though I guessed on FJ. Like Sara, so glad she's a finalist.

    This episode could have served as season finale - some loose ends were tidied up. Glad there's one more though. I don't remember meeting Luka's friends, the dyslexic girl and her mother, but enjoyed their interactions. Also good for Luka, going to bat to help her. Will we see Street's mom in the next episode? Creepy that Mom gave keys to that con woman. And yay for Darryl's story, but awful that he was shot doing the right thing.
