Another thing that might be happening on November 16: Ken Jennings’ Jeopardy loss. The rumor is that he lost on day 75, and unless they show another week of special episodes or something, that’ll be when it’s aired. I’ll have to tear myself away from Half-Life 2 for a half an hour, I guess.

Ken Jennings, Day 39

Jeopardy is showing new episodes again, and Ken Jennings has won show number 39 in a row. My favorite among some KenJen statistics: The last time that Final Jeopardy was mathematically necessary (i.e. the last time Ken did not have more than double the score of the next-best contestant) was June 29.

Update, 09-08: Huge KenJen spoiler.

Penny Johnson Jerald

Watching Season 3 of our Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Ghetto Box Set, I came across the episode Family Business. It’s not an extremely notable episode (besides the old-Ferrengi-lady nudity), but it sticks out prominently in my mind (and not because of the nudity). It’s the first time we meet freighter captain Kasidy Yates. I had known that Penny Johnson was in the series eventually, and I was dreading it. I could never trust Sherry Palmer. Never! The episode was over before I realized how great of an actress she really is. I didn’t doubt her sincerity and utter likeableness in DS9 for a moment. It totally blew me away.
