Idiot box thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Adam was in jeopardy last week, so he could be up. But if Rob's team has to go to Council again, his tribe might try to dump him.
You been keeping up?

Not the best season ever but really good.

Seems like they're telegraphing Tony for the win but a couple more double episodes to go which could change things.
Oh yeah, I'm still here. I've lost some of my faves, though, and haven't ever cared much for Tony. He was double-lucky and skilful last week - we'll see how long he can keep that up.
Why don't these idiots vote Tony out? What am I missing?

Beats me - he never even comes up for discussion of backdoor. Wonder who'll make it back from Extinction, and whether it will make any difference.

This will be weird:
Saturday Night Live At Home
April 11, 2020

The cast of SNL performs sketches from remote locations, including Weekend Update.
I wonder if they can pull it off.
It'll beat watching Harry Potter for the thirtieth time, the 1986 Masters of whatever other rerun is on.

Try drinking, bet it makes it more fun!
Saturday Night Live At Home #3 tonight. We'll see.

Cool, something to look forward after I decide what to watch earlier. Downton Abbey on HBO, Munster Go Home on MeTV or the 2016 NBA finals on ABC.

Maybe l will just read a book.

Will DeNiro will do Mario Cuomo?

Not as good as two weeks ago. Can't believe that was their "season finale ". Seems like it's gonna be a long time until September.

They "hope" it was their last SNL At Home. I liked this:


Song for the Kids - SNL

:o :lol: Is that a "Preacher" Al Roker cameo at 3:00?

This might be fun:
A Saturday Night Live Mother's Day

tonight, 9 - 11 PM ET

Two hours of fan-favorite "SNL" sketches to celebrate moms and families.

Gaetz is just part of the report.
Trump Lambasts ‘60 Minutes’ After Episode About His COVID-19 Conspiracy Mongering
The show said Trump’s administration defunded, for political reasons, a nonprofit engaged in potentially lifesaving research about coronaviruses.


... Still, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), a vocal defender of Trump, suggested last month that the virus could have been made at the Wuhan Institute, which he erroneously said had received a ”$3.7 million grant” from the NIH.

That grant, as “60 Minutes” noted, had in fact been given to EcoHealth Alliance and not to the institute. According to (eminent virologist Peter) Daszak, the nonprofit has spent about $100,000 annually to collaborate with Wuhan researchers ― a collaboration that he said is essential to helping the U.S. prepare for pandemics like the one currently ravaging the globe.

“If we want to know anything about the next pandemic we need to be working in China,” Daszak told USA Today....

Arrrgh! I sat through 3 hours to see Tony win! Sheeeeeeeeit!
I should have just read the East Coast feed and made better use of my evening.

I did like the finale, lots of good personal content and didn't feel overly rushed like it usually does. Having no reunion left me a little empty. Ben rolled over and showed his belly, guess he realized he wasn't going to win regardless. Pretty weird. Don't know why at and Michele didn't force fire between Denise and Sarah. There was other head scratching stuff that maybe I'll look for answers online at some point, because there's a pandemic and I'm a little bored.


Tony's a good winner though, played his ass off and there was no opportunity to vote him out last night. That being said, I can't believe he got to the end without ever being targeted. WTF?

My girl Michele should have gotten some votes, she played well albeit from the bottom.

The Edge needs to be retired forever, one voted out bye bye. The longer you're there the greater the opportunity for advantages. Uhhh, no reward for getting voted out early thank you. What a travesty it would've been if the winner was only in the game for a week and it could've happened if Tony lost fire.

Top ten season, not top five.
