It's still plying insults as a valid form of entertainment. It doesn't matter that you get to throw one back. YOU'RE STILL INSULTING AND THAT IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE GARBAGE THAT NO ONE SHOULD EVER DO EVER EVER EVER EVER.

I'm beginning to feel a bit insulted myself. You've made your point. We disagree.

Why do you think it's okay though?

Because it's a performance that no one takes seriously? In any case I've heard no bleeps and no filth and no posting in all caps on The Chase. I've even said I agree with you about The Weakest Link (although more fundamentally I think that's a poor game, and I like The Chase's competition). So maybe you could take that as a victory and move on? It's fine if you don't watch The Chase... :roll:

...but it's still insults, and having them exist at all tells people that it's okay to insult each other. Which it's fucking not. There should be literally no reason for anyone to insult anyone ever. Am I insulting YOU for liking the show? No, but I still think it's horrifying that anyone does.

You should try out for The Chase and/or Weakest Link, tbh. It'd be fun to watch.

By indulging in an obsessive rant because I said it might be worth another look, it feels like you are. But I'll live.

Can I make a poll request? One question: Can you differentiate between reality and fantasy? Yes or no?

Doesn't matter. Insults are a terrible form of entertainment in either realm.

I’m watching it right now & Hammerhead would be so upset! The remaining contestant just insulted Brad Rutter with a backhanded compliment. Oh, the humanity!!!

That and the fetish knowledge was very funny. Always easier from the comfort of home but it still felt good to get the hibernation Q right.

Missing the WNBA Q is one thing, but the Mad Hatter one? :o

Thanks, I gave Natasha a line and one for Rahul as well. No priors for KT?

First solo win on this version.

I think I got all but one of Natasha’s questions in the Final Chase, and I knew all of the questions that Brad missed so that round was a slam dunk.

Alice in Wonderland was a horrible miss.

Natasha was in my J! taping group, so I saw her game in person. Both the DD she missed ("wheelhouse") and the Final still haunt me.

My flash drive filled up and only the first 13 minutes of tonight's airing got recorded, but to my relief, the holiday meant it was a repeat (of the June 6 season premiere).
