  1. https://www.newsweek.com/meet-jonathan-fisher-man-who-ended-matt-amodios-jeopardy-streak-1637947 Jonathan is a stage actor. IMBD rarely lists theatrical credits.
  2. West Coast fan here. I was spoiled via a Facebook post from TV Insider around 5:00 PST. I always thought it would take two good opponents working in tandem to beat Matt. They were quick on their buzzers and made few mistakes when it counted. Getting to the DD first and controlling the flow of the game must have really broke up Matt's concentration. Like any other game, the team that controls the ball usually wins. The opponents controlled the "ball". I knew Austria because I directed The Sound of Music many years ago and still watch it when it's aired every year for sentimen
  3. I think it's hypocritical for the news team to make fun of Craig for playing the violin and being somewhat nerdy as a teenager. It makes any segment that features a bullied child or teenager weaker because of it. What message are they sending to boys or children who like music? I wish they would be a bit more self-aware.
  4. Unpopular opinion here: I know many of you are enjoying Matt's self-effacing and humble run as champion. His steady presence certainly saved the show some extra embarrassment during the Mike Richards debacle. I'm ready for a new champ. As nice as he seems, tonight he could have eased up on the throttle a little bit near the end. The game was a runaway at $30,000, yet he was still jumping on the button as if his win was in question. Maybe he's trying to break the daily record or acquire more money than Jeopardy James. I just felt bad for his opponents tonight.
  5. I do think Rebecca wanted/wants children. When Rupert/Giles shows up at her office in "All Apologies" (Season 1.9), he takes delight in taunting her. It's obvious in Rebecca's expressions that his words hurt. After this horrible exchange, she rushes to Ted's office and confesses. "Rupert: People change. I do want a child. I just suppose I... I didn't want one with... Before. I mean, in the end, it's just about being with the right person, isn't it? Oh, I'm so glad I got to tell you this in person. I would have hated for you to read it in the press. Good luck against Man City."
  6. https://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/great-british-bake-offs-maggie-25121957?utm_source=linkCopy&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=sharebar It looks like a few other viewers thought Paul was a bit too harsh when judging Maggie.
  7. Yes, they needed to respond with the British name of the show: "The Great British Bake Off". The name was changed in the USA because of the Pillsbury Bake Off.
  8. I thought the juxtaposition of Ted and Rebecca's confessions worked well because both stories were about the deaths of their childhoods/innocence.
  9. “What’s Gehrig?” Come on. Tacky.
  10. I have a theory about why this game was not a runaway which is probably 100% wrong. When Mayim was introduced, there was a cut to Matt whose expression could be described as 'star struck'. He was also a bit more ingratiating during his contestant interview. I think he may have been a bit distracted. Maybe he's a fan. Of course, the conflict backstage and all the media attention may have also had a bit to do with Matt's game play tonight. 🙂
  11. Too bad they didn't start the show with the group therapy sketch and leave the other sketches on the cut for time floor.
  12. Ted staves off a panic attack in this episode with a call to Dr. Sharon Fieldstone. I thought Ted only had one other incident but now I'm not so sure. I re-watched the pilot last night and wondered if Ted's response to the overwhelming reporters at his first press conference was a precursor to his panic attacks. The music/sound effects just before his spit take enhance that sense of impending dread that happens with panic attacks. Since we don't have a general topic anymore because we've been promoted, I'm not quite sure where to put this. I don't want to accidentally spoil anyone
  13. Thank you Shapeshifter for finding the correct article. I remember Mayim was on an episode of "What Not to Wear" years ago, and her 'makeover' was challenging because she had strict ideas about what she would/could wear.
  14. I found the article on Mayim interesting because her choices were deliberate. She wanted to match the visual "tone" of Alex's wardrobe. I think she succeeded.
  15. I read this article about Mayim's fashion choices at the beginning of her run as guest host. https://www.thelist.com/248835/the-stunning-transformation-of-mayim-bialik/
