    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    If I had the misfortune to play against James, and didn't know the answer to a Final Jeopardy question, I'd write, "What is: James my birthday is 4-28. Insert any year". I thought it was sweet that he teared up when talking about his grandmother and was also surprised that she was Japanese. I read in an interview that she spoke very little English but still enjoyed watching Jeopardy with him. I'd love to see how he would do against Watson.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    You forgot about the commercials for Peyronie's Disease and erectile dysfunction. I was worried about these until I realized: 1. I'm a woman 2. I'm a nurse and should know better. Whatever happened to the cute commercials with Tony the Tiger, Snap Crackle and Pop, Smokey the Bear, happy McDonald's people dancing around while they sang "You deserve a break today", while Burger King answered that we could have it our way? I miss commercials like that.

    I don't understand the James "hate". I think he's a gracious player and one of the reasons I like him is he's not constantly interupting Alex. I've also noticed him not ringing in when he's way ahead in the game. In fact I first noticed it when Anna was a contestant. She was the woman last week that didn't ring in at all during the first round. I've also noticed that he makes a point of shaking hands with the other contestants at the end of the game. I don't like games where contestants start at the top and work their way down the row everytime. Especially when they don't even know the answers to the $200 questions. It's boring. I would think if you're a contestant in a game like this you're in it to win it. If you aren't, you shouldn't be there. I've also never understood personal slams against someone because of their looks. It's mean and not funny at all.

    I found this article about James. His wife is also a game show winner and was on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" in 2015. Several of his wagers have been in honor of different family members which I think is sweet. https://heavy.com/news/2019/04/james-holzhauer-jeopardy/

    Do you know a lot of serial killers? I hope none of his relatives read what you've said about him. I like James and I don't care who knows it! He strikes me as being a little shy but that's just my opinion. I'm happy to see a smart player who knows how to work the board, makes gutsy wagers, and doesn't wave the buzzer around like they're trying to land an airplane.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    According to an article I read he's using a method called, "The Forrest Bounce". Throughout the game, Hozhauer employed the Forrest Bounce, a strategy in which contestants constantly switch between categories rather than running down a single list of questions from top to bottom. The technique earns its name from Chuck Forrest, who first used it in Season 2 of Jeopardy!, then later went on to win the 1986 Tournament of Champions. Another article says his FJ bet of $3268 the other day was in honor of his nephew Jack who's birthday is 3/26/08. I think that was sweet and makes me like him even more.

    Three good players tonight! I'm still pulling for James even though some of you don't like him. I think he's a good player and not at all annoying. I thought Final Jeopardy was easy after I read the answer on The Jeopardy Fan board. Before that though, I didn't have a clue.

    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I like the new champ! He doesn't go nuts on the buzzer, doesn't shift from side to side, doesn't interupt Alex, and he smiles! It's almost like he's read these boards and figured out what drives people crazy. He is an aggressive player but that's how you win the game. I also noticed he hesitated a couple of times, towards the end of the game, before he rang in and I think it was to give Anna a chance to ring in. I've never seen a player not answer anything on the first round of Jeopardy. I think the other two were just too fast on the buzzer. I felt sorry for her. I'm also pretty proud of myself for getting the correct Final Jeopardy answers two days in a row. That's a record for me! Now I have to call all of my family so I can brag about that.

    What is...In the Media?

    I just heard about Alex Trebek's terrible news and I'm heartbroken. I sincerely hope he beats this horrible disease.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    Thank goodness they aren't playing that Paragard commercial here in Charlotte, NC. If they are I haven't seen it. However, one of my friends that lives in Brooklyn, NY sent it to me and I was shocked. First of all, if I ever see anyone dancing in the grocery store while singing about their birth control, I'm going to call the men with the butterfly nets to take her away. I can see how the song would get on your nerves too. Right now I'm so over the commercial where the people are talking funny because they had a fender bender with a helium truck. The first 1000 times I saw it, I thought it was mildly amusing. Now, not so much. It's on every commercial break on every channel I watch. Enough! I can take most any commercial unless I see it every five minutes. After that, I make a point of not buying the product. I'm also over the Purple Mattress commercials. If I had neighbors that weird, I'd move.

    House Hunters Renovation

    I liked the latest episode and was so happy to see a kitchen that wasn't all white and gray like every other episode they show. Note to designers: Light gray is not a pop of color. I loved the green cabinets and the fact there were no open shelves. They seemed like a nice couple too. Another thing I noticed when they went through the other houses was they didn't act like they were horrified to be in that house . So many of them get really nasty about other properties, put on their stink faces the minute they walk through the front door, and forget that real people own those homes. It's also nice to see people walk into a room without yelling "Gut job" every single time. I'm over the people who talk about nothing but how it will be a great house for dinner parties or entertaining. To be honest I've seen some episodes where the "before" looked better than the "after". Does anyone know what these people do with all the vegetables and fruits they're always cutting up at the end of the show? They're usually doing it by their chef quality stoves.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    About the Hyundai ads with the tracking devices. We've had something similar to that in my town since I was a kid. Except we called them nosy neighbors, friends, and family. I live in a small town and you can't sneeze without someone a mile away saying "Bless you" or someone else asking you the next day if your cold is better. Right now I'm hating the new Pizza Hut commercial where these two teenaged girls just fall apart over some new cheesy pockets crust. I'd also like to get my hands on whoever thought it was a good idea to bring Maxwell the pig from Geico back.

    House Hunters Renovation

    When I see a house that is all white I have to wonder why these people want to live in something that looks like the inside of an igloo. Several of you have mentioned that if a designer wanted to put a barn door in your house they'd be sitting on the lawn wondering what had happened. I feel the same way about any designer that would suggest a $2000 light for my kitchen. I've also noticed that a lot of the people on these shows are now saying they want a little "bling" in their kitchens. Designers are now calling cabinet hardware "jewelry" for your living space. No, it's called "hardware" for your cabinets and bling, after a while, looks dated and tacky. Remember the 80's brass and crystal chandeliers? Strictly my opinion. I think in the coming years people are going to get sick of the gigantic islands in kitchens, especially after they've banged their hips on the corners a couple of hundred times, not to mention the open shelves that collect dust and grease. I'm also hoping the "all white everywhere" craze goes away very soon. I can't wait to see a show where homeowners say it's too open and needs a few walls. I've noticed more people are now saying they like more defined rooms which is a relief. I was afraid it was going to get to the point where they wanted open concept bathrooms too so they could still hear their guests when nature called during one of the many, many dinner parties they have.

    House Hunters Renovation

    I'm curious if there's some rule on this show, and other reno shows, where you're not allowed to say the words "room" or "area"? I'm so sick of hearing the word "space". Does HGTV deliver an electric shock to anyone who says the word "room". Now they're even calling yards, "green spaces". It's very distracting. I'm totally over the all white kitchens, the black and white cement floor tiles, subway tiles with gray grout or any grout for that matter, open shelving, barn doors, and women with vocal fry or who try to sound like a toddler when they talk. I'm also tired of seeing people swinging sledge hammers and not giving any thought to how something could be either re-used or saved. I'm especially over all the faked drama and the need for open concept everything. Do these people really entertain that much and if so, are their friends so hilarious they don't want to miss one second of anything that say? I usually have everything already cooked and ready when I have guests over. I guess these people wait to start the dinner until their guests arrive. I'm really hoping the episode where the mother painted the fireplace turquoise was some type of inside joke and they really didn't leave it that way. It was hideous. Stripping it and staining it a lighter color would have been so much better and kept with the vintage theme of the house. I'm almost to the point of removing this show from my DVR. All of the homes are starting to look just alike and I'm underwhelmed by most of them. I've already removed Property Brothers from my DVR lineup because of the same problems.
