Alright...broke down and watched the first two episodes of Stranger Things on Saturday night - definitely will be continuing on with this one, enjoyed it for the most part. And no denying Winona, she is still very attractive. Have to figure out timing and get this one binge watched!

When she went to Hollywood she took the name of her home town Winona MN. I used to do a lot of work there.

It is trivia like this that fills my brain up with happy thoughts. I have no clue where she got her start, but remember her in Great Balls of Fire and than Beetlejuice.

As for Stranger Things - watched another episode last night - looking forward to getting through all of it.

Survivor/Masked Singer on this evening.

Watched Masked Singer I will say its mindless fun. It has to be fixed. How can they guess some internet guy that most people have never heard of, and then not guessed the Lepard is Dennis Rodman? Four rings and he wore that wedding dress.

Molly,the hottest of the Survivor contestants,got voted off. Looks like this could be a "Revenge of the Nerds" scenario this season.

Blacklist starts tonight and watched the premiere episode of AEW Dynamite Wednesday. Some great wrestling and a welcome sight from the typical WWE stuff.

Did not get to see Masked Singer this week - but you nailed the biggest issue with it - some of the D list celebrities they pull out of retirement and/or these folks that no one has ever heard of, makes it very tough to figure out who they might be. The show is also A LOT better when they have a guest judge helping them out with things. Not because the guesses are better, but because the intelligence quota jumps substantially!

Only part of Survivor I got to see was the tribal council - and it seems like the conscious decision was made to keep the crazy chick (Noura??) over the cute chick Molly. But will give them credit, at least they didn't vote off someone who will make a difference in challenges.

Have one more week of Wednesday night baseball practice, and than it shifts to Thursday, so I will be able to watch again, uninterrupted!

The episode started with Noura doing a lot of complaining to the point where it annoyed her tribemates which made her an easy vote. A few of the oddballs in the group wanted to take out Molly because she was a strong social player and in the end they had enough votes to send her packing.

If you play the crazy card, it goes one of two ways -- either you get immediately voted out because you are just annoying and a headache and no one can stand to be around you anymore OR people make a conscious decision to deal with it and take you to the end because no one will ever vote you to win a million bucks!

They had lots of votes to remove her! What happened last night......forgot and missed both......

Vince got sent home. He went to Island of the Idols to meet with Rob/Sandra - he got his challenge and won an idol. The tribe got totally paranoid and wanted to split the vote to flush out an idol if he had one. Why anyone would use that strategy this early in the game is beyond me. They had a plan and than completely collapsed on themselves because they got crazy thinking about an idol. So they lose the challenge badly because Parishma has no idea how to do puzzles, so she is the clear and easy choice to send home, except wait..clear and easy in Survivor never happens due to crazy and stupid!

So Vince has an idol, only good for the next two tribal councils - and he doesn't play it...stupid. It is only good for two tribals, you may not even be at the next one, so your idol would be worthless - why not play it and make sure you are safe. Or at least show it and say you are playing it to get votes off of you. The tribe he was in has very little common sense, and that is a kiss of death in this game. Vote out stronger players early so that you get sent back to Tribal Council...great strategy. But we want to keep our core alliance together for the merge...you can't be thinking about the merge 6 days in - you have to think about staying on the island for another 3 days at this point.

Thanks for the update.....so dumb to get voted off and not play the idol!

Another week,another blindside. Chelsea gone bye-bye as a possible power couple was broken up. Looks like next week tribes get flipped around. Air Force vet Missy dropped some Survivor knowledge at tribal and I enjoyed her outlook on the game. I think I found a person to root for.

Not just another blindside - another one where the eliminated had an idol in their pocket. Can't believe they sent Chelsea home - way to keep a weak player around that you know is going to flip on you the second they have a chance - and that is what Pradishma is going to do.

Totally agree with you on Missy - love that she is out there to play the game and win, and not just coast around as if it is a vacation (which many, many folks do). Not sure if I am ready to proclaim her as my choice, but if she were to win, I wouldn't be disappointed at all. Looks like a tribe swap coming next week - will be interesting how many tribes they go to....2, 3 or 4.

On a separate note - got through the first season of Stranger Things - very enjoyable, and looking forward to getting to Seasons 2 & 3.
