    Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Thanks, LOL. Finally a category I could run without blinking, though I did shout "Edgar Allen Poe" and "J Edgar Hoover" before they revealed the 3-Edgar category. I miss Sue! Speaking of AE Poe, whom Jeopardy! loves, they also love Jane Eyre. A lot. I was hoping Roey would bet more than zero. He sure wasn't in it to win it (hate that expression, but it fits). Rats! Now we'll never hear Alex say, "And where did the name Roey come from?"

    I'm baaaack! From a lengthy hiatus...for one thing, my daughter and grandson were in The Music Man and I had to see them, even if it meant taking 3 planes to get there! Is it my imagination or did they use leftover Teen Tournament clues these last 2 days?

    Is Sophia the dancer who sleep-walked her way across the stage? I thought the most exciting part of her dance was letting her hair loose <yawn>. Is there going to be a Top 20? Or is it once again a Top 10...5 "boys" and 5 "girls"?

    I have a [growing] pile of good books to read. Not to mention books to write :-) Nothing against kids. Really. Honestly. Abso-bloody-lutely. Cross my heart and hope... LOL scar on Outlander. I had forgotten about that. Did I tell y'all I knew Diana Gabaldon before she was Diana Gabaldon?

    Me, too. I figured some of y'all would mention the wink and kiss, but no one saw the swaying? Cool! Did all his kids and baby mamas live there, too? My only fun singer fact was that my first husband went to school with Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel (Forest Hills High) and sang with them when they were Tom & Jerry...before they were Art & Paul :-)

    THIS! Plus, I'm reminded of Simon & Garfunkel's "Hello darkness my old friend." Some of the scenes were so dark, I could barely make out the characters!

    I'm not as crazy about Death as Jeopardy! is :-) All My Sons is okay (it's presently a revival on B'way, according to the Tony Awards), but The Crucible is pure brilliance. One of my mystery novels goes back and forth between the present and the Salem witch trials, so I did lots of research and Miller was spot-on.

    I miss Twitch, too, and I'm mesmerized by new judge Laurieann Gibson's fingernails...but not in a good way. Also, I get the impression she's trying too hard. Dominic actually has a long history with the Fox franchise — and other popular reality shows. Finally... Hey, show, why waste time on the pregnant dancer when you can give us one or two of the montaged dancers?

    THIS! It didn't affect the outcome of the game, but I would have screamed bloody murder if it had. I'm another who hopes Kim Darby...I mean Emma makes TOC and faces James. The J! theme could have played three time before I reached x-ray. Staying on topic -- sort of -- I've said before that my favorite category is Broadway musicals. My daughter was just cast as Eulalie Mackechnie Shinn in a production of The Music Man. Ball-zac!

    I think tonight was "the war of the buzzer." Mr. Author and I were both on the edge of our seats. When James hit the DD in the second round, we both said whew, thank the gods. And that was BEFORE he answered the clue :)

    Does anyone know how much more $$ James has to win to reach the $2 Million?

    My first thought for FJ was Cold Mountain, but I could think of only one Oscar for that movie. I simply can't get my answers (questions?) out as quickly as James, so I'm skipping the "What is" or "Who is/are" part of the answer (question).

    THIS X 1,000,000,000! I've given up because of the above...and because I can't understand more than 3 words of a song unless I know the song to start with (I'm not counting the massacre of the Beatles, for which I tuned in then tuned out).

    Me, too, then was kicking myself! Ouch! No James fatigue here. I love to watch him, love when he hits the DDs, love when he gets them right and Mr. Author and I high-five (ouch!)
  15. Did he? I thought he merely spouted platitudes. And why didn't Bill ask him about the 11-year-old child who was raped and is being forced to carry the baby to term? According to Ohio's new law [which, btw, is unconstitutional] they will force this child to bear her rapists child! I would have liked to hear Ryan's response to that!!!
