Re: Reretaken Down

Anyone else think that--assuming as executive producer he has significant say in who the next host will be--Mike Richards might pull a Dick Cheney and choose Mike Richards? As for Ms. Couric's remarks (which I have only seen referenced in the usual alarmist conservative news headlines), some enormo...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Moving the goal posts. “Do you have a source for that?” - “We can’t trust the sources”. Why ask for a source and then say the media can’t be trusted? I think if people are willing to be white nationalists that want to overthrow the government I feel like they’re willing to lie about being white nat...

I will admit, Broadband was completely new to me. Yet again, I do not often talk on the phone.
Internet access, not talking on the phone. You're probably not old enough to remember the dial-up to broadband transition, I guess.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Social media is totally fake, the pitchforks and the attaboys. I don't mean to say that the people posting criticism or praise aren't doing so sincerely. I mean that all the noise on Twitter and Reddit makes very close to zero difference to the only metric that counts, ratings. Which is why I think...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I will say one thing - it's purely anecdotal, of course, but the general mood toward Ken on social media seems to have done a complete 180. Just a couple of weeks ago they were all carrying torches and pitchforks and ready to crucify him as a <insert your favorite -ist here>. After just two episodes...

Good get by Yoshie on New South Wales. A nice present to Alex on his last day to have a contestant who knows Canadian geography. :D
Ummmm, what?
I'm glad you said it. I'm guessing some ancient inside joke that neither you nor I am getting.

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

One thing that confused my dad was why the chaser never got to see the answer choices, but the player could. What do you mean? During the multiple choice rounds? Yes. The multiple choice rounds. How do you know he didn't? Surely he had a monitor up there in front of him in his console...

Yeah if you're gonna claim this please find a source and cite it, because I don't think it's true at all. I'm willing to bet AFRET CMS was joking. You win the bet. I always feel guilty when I pull someone's leg and it comes off in my hand. It's another reason why written communication without tone ...

KJ's attempts to taunt the contestants didn't really work for me; I think James will be a better chaser in this regard.
Agreed. He doesn't play the bully very well, despite allegations to the contrary from the torch and pitchfork crowd on social media.

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Hustler"

I was entertained enough by it for one night, but not enough that I have any feelings of anticipation for future episodes like I do with The Chase. If I do watch it again, it'll probably be because of Chase-related inertia. What I don't understand is during the elimination rounds, how do they know ...

Make that two of us. It was agonizingly slow - ten questions in one hour?

The set is a bit hokey, too - not at all what I expected.

I guess if I want to watch people vote each other out, I'll watch survivor and not a trivia show.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

The clue said "Iberian" country, so your "literally any country" is reduced from 200-ish to Spain, Portugal, Andorra and maybe the U.K. If you count Gibraltar. Now let's see, what Iberian country might lead one to Brazil? Gee, I don't know, could be anything!! Because again, it's possible to be fro...
