I thought it was terrible. I couldn't take more than ten minutes or so. There's a reason you don't see any kids, and very few seniors, on Regular Jeopardy.
That's one reason I always enjoyed watching The California Lottery... the price of admission is winning a spin on the TV wheel, and unlike Jeopardy or even Wheel of Fortune there's no contestant screening. :p

The Anarchists starts Sunday 7/10 on HBO

HBO Original documentary series #TheAnarchists follows an eclectic cast of dreamers, fugitives, and crypto-enthusiasts whose annual gathering in Acapulco, Mexico becomes a massive anarchist community — but what begins as a hopeful experiment to live out a radical new way of life proves to be more challenging and dangerous than anyone could have expected. The Anarchists premieres July 10 at 10PM on HBO Max.

How to Change Your Mind starts 7/12 on Netflix

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney and New York Times best-selling author Michael Pollan present this documentary series event in four parts, each focused on a different mind-altering substance: LSD, psilocybin, MDMA, and mescaline. With Pollan as our guide, we journey to the frontiers of the new psychedelic renaissance – and look back at almost-forgotten historical context – to explore the potential of these substances to heal and change minds as well as culture. How to Change Your Mind is directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Alison Ellwood and two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker Lucy Walker.

I didn't expect it to be sophisticated, and Kelly isn't my kind of host, but I thought these were great contestants.

I got what I was looking for, and there were even some things we old folks were supposed to know that I didn't.

I have to agree, although playing it via quickmode at 1.7, I did watch the whole thing. I can't imagine watching another episode, it's not a trivia show, it's more a show that wants to have fun with what people don't know. For those that didn't make it to the end, the winning family has a chance at a nice price, in this case a car, but because they are looking for laughs, the show is set up so a pre-school member of the family gets to pick the prize. The choice for the 5 year old yesterday was a new car or some $300 4 wheeled riding thing from razor. Of course the 5 year old chose the riding thing, costing his family a new car.
Yeah, that part was ridiculous.

My thoughts exactly! my only problem is the "coming in 2022" part...give us a date, dammit.
FX's Welcome to Wrexham - New Docuseries Premieres Wednesday, August 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and Streaming the Next Day on Hulu. The premiere will include the first two episodes.
Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) and Rob McElhenney (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) bought the third oldest professional football club in the world. It is a Welsh team in the town Wrexham and the team is currently on the brink of dissolution. Welcome to Wrexham is a docuseries tracking the dreams and worries of Wrexham, a working-class town in North Wales, UK, as two Hollywood stars take ownership of the town's historic yet struggling football club.
In 2020, Rob and Ryan teamed up to purchase the 5th tier Wrexham Red Dragons in the hopes of turning the club into an underdog story the whole world could root for. The worry? Rob and Ryan have no experience in football or working with each other. From Hollywood to Wales, from the pitch to the locker room, the front office to the pub, Welcome to Wrexham will track Rob and Ryan's crash course in football club ownership and the inextricably connected fates of a team and a town counting on two actors to bring some serious hope and change to a community that could use it.

Any other RuPaul fans here? I just saw a promo for a new iteration of 'Drag Race'. It's called Secret Celebrity RuPaul's Drag Race. It will be on VH1, beginning August 12.

It's actual celebrities dressed in drag and it looks like they are so dragged up that you can't really tell who it is and then find out at elimination. Kind of, but not really, like 'The Masked Singer' I guess, only with drag queens.

I will look forward to it, as I'm a huge RuPaul, and Drag Race, fan.

Not a fan, but RuPaul was on "Pyramid" last night.
