  1. Interesting finale, with no post-show Q&A session. Plenty of content to make up for that, and I liked it just fine that way. Congrats to Tony, who really did play a great game. Not my favorite guy, but I think he earned it. No promotions for the next season for obvious reasons, but I did find it interesting for Probst to ask teenagers to sign up.
  2. I really don't like the idea of Ben, Tony, or Sarah winning this.
  3. True, and I can't imagine what all these fire tokens are supposed to do. We're almost at the end, so most of them must be useless. Maybe a nice souvenir to take home, like your Survivor buff that can now be fashioned into a face mask. I don't have a face mask yet. I'm waiting for something that captures my imagination, and my airborne spit halo of destruction.
  4. Heh, sorry to cause confusion by misspelling pansexual. I definitely remember Natalie from her season, and I would seek her out when I was watching the live feeds. Asian James was a fun guy (fungi) during that season, and was prone to playing pranks on everyone. I don't know how he went from that to harassing Natalie in real life.
  5. I'm glad Phil is keeping busy, and they're giving him something to do while TAR has become a part-time job at best. "Tough as Nails" sounds like a conglomeration of every reality show ever created, with elements from everywhere thrown into the mix. Lots of Ninja Warrior and other things, but at least no one falls in love and goes to a Rose ceremony.
  6. I always liked Natalie and James as a couple, but apparently that went bad in a big way. From Big Brother wiki, "On April 27th, 2017 Natalie filed legal action against fellow houseguest and former boyfriend James Huling for making troll accounts against her, releasing private photos of her, and posting false information about her on social media." She has also come out as being parasexual. I don't know how that is different from bisexual, but in any case I found her attractive during her season. I also thought Asian James was a nice guy, so what do I know?
  7. I just finished Tiger King today. It was like watching a train-wreck filled with uneducated, gun-toting rednecks who like big cats for some reason, but hate each other. I'll try that one, once I'm done with Shameless and Ozark. Still need to get to After Life with Ricky Gervais.
  8. Okay, how about some recommendations for all of us cooped up at home? I have streaming Netflix these days, and I've already gone through "Russian Doll", "You", and "Sex Education". I'm now watching "Ozark", and I can say that it's intriguing and worth watching. A big time money laundering financial planner from Chicago moves to Missouri, but they aren't the simple rubes he expects.
  9. Interesting, because I thought one more of them were coming back. I'll have to say that I skipped over the whole first half of this episode. The family reunion things just don't interest me, and that seemed to be the entire first 30 minutes of the episode.
  10. It totally pissed me off yesterday when I got an email from someone trying to extort money from me. They wanted two thousand dollars in bitcoin, or they were going to release compromising videos of me to my Facebook friends and work collogues. This is a scam, so don't fall for it. The main reason I knew that was because they said they had activated my web cam to film me, but there is NO WEB CAM HERE. Its a very sad state of affairs when everyone needs to work together and act with kindness towards one another, while other assholes are trying to extort money from potentially jobless and grieving people.
  11. Just got some Chinese take-out Friday evening, and they had the new barriers up, just like the grocery store and the local convenience store. If your job is to install plexiglass, business is booming. Also, I was trying to support my local Chinese place, but from what I saw they seem to have more business than ever.
  12. Yeah, but the problem is that you can already watch the old seasons right now. I'm not sure about a fall season either, but if this continues and they don't have the scripted shows already filmed and ready to go, maybe then we get the first fall season of BB.
  13. Thanks. I watched some clips from that season, and that's probably all I need to do. It was 20 years ago, so it's probably irrelevant now. I would always want to sequester with easy-going and intelligent people, and avoid loud-mouthed douche-bags. Yul would probably be ideal, and I know she isn't there, but Ream Daily would be my nightmare. Luckily, most of the people this season aren't all that bad.
  14. Now you're making me want to re-watch that season again. Which one was it?
  15. I only watched one season, and that was because Victor and Natalie from BB were on it. This season has BB folks that I didn't like in the first place, so a hard NO on that. I've seen enough of Bayleigh already, thank you very much.
  16. It's always nice to see those folks from "The Office" again, and have them entertain us with good news. It reminds me of the network nightly news that I watch every day, where the last segment is al\ways something to uplift you. I'm not sure I need that, but it does help everyone to maintain a positive attitude.
  17. Just went to the grocery store on Saturday, and it was fairly crowded, with all the employees wearing gloves and some of them wearing masks. Still a lot of items that are not in stock, and a lot of bare shelves everywhere . Some of it is hoarding, and some of it is simply because you need more groceries when everyone is home because of the lockdown. Most of the shoppers seemed to be keeping their distance, and I only saw one guy with a shopping cart that was totally filled with toilet paper. May you get a raging case of diarrhea and actually need all that. So sorry for everyone who is sick, the health workers who are trying to do their best, and all the people who have lost their jobs.
  18. Team douche? Heh. So, we get the merger next time, and that should add an interesting dynamic to the whole thing. In the meantime, they really need to thin out the herd on Exile (or Extinction). Whatever they call it, more people need to go besides Sandra. Boston Rob getting three tokens in one day was impressive, but I'm kind of tired of him now.
  19. On another subject, I knew that the current season of Hawaii 5-O was about to happen, but now I find out it's the end of the entire series. There's a two hour series finale coming up, and I'm going to miss all those folks. It was a nice ten year run I'm also going to miss that weird thing they had with the bad guys driving Fords, and the good guys driving Chevrolets.
  20. Yeah, I wasn't so confused about the Borg having that transport system, because they assimilated it. I was wondering more about how it got programmed to go to Troi and Riker's house. I loved the reference to Isaac Asimov a few weeks ago, since this whole android/robot uprising was right in his wheelhouse. I was imagining him still alive and watching this, and what he would make of it .
  21. Heh, I never thought about treating the holograms like shit, because they're basically just computer programs. I think the audience is meant to think that they're more sophisticated versions of what they have in their homes right now, and have no consciousness or feelings. As for plot holes, I was taken aback when Picard used the transport system in the Borg queens room, and it took him directly to Troi and Riker;s estate. That made no sense to me.
  22. I can't believe it's almost time for the season finale of Star Trek:: Picard. It seems like it only just started, and it was so nice to see so many familiar faces again, along with the new ones. There are still a few original people that we haven't seen yet, and I'm hopeful for a second season. I don't see any reason not to renew it, and I did get a kick out of seven of nine as a kick-ass action figure, even though Jeri Ryan is over 50 years old now. .
  23. Well, I'm glad that I got my hair cut when I did, because they just shut down all the salons and barbershops in the state. I'm guessing they'll be closed for quite a while, so I just barely avoided looking like a Yeti for the rest of the spring. I wish this wasn't so severe. and we didn't have so many people losing their jobs.
  24. If you want to socially distance people, the BB house seems like the ideal place to do it. Once you determine that everyone is virus-free, then they have no contact with the outside world anymore and won't be getting sick.. Of course, all the production staff needs to be cleared as well. The last time there was a delay it was due to a writer's strike, and we got a bonus winter version of BB. Is it too much to ask for the regular summer version, and another one later?
  25. All the bars and restaurants here are shut down until further notice, except for carry-out and drive-thru. I can see that this is putting a lot of people out of work, and now they're talking about shutting down all day-care facilities in the state, putting even more stress on parents. The dorms at Ohio State are being emptied out, so the students have to find somewhere else to stay. I've never seen anything like this before I went for a haircut this morning, and I was the only customer in there. The girl who cut my hair was wearing gloves, and said she wanted to be there because she has to make a living. I gave her a big tip when I left.
