    Mayim Bialik has been my favorite so far and I thought Buzzy Cohen did a decent job during the ToC.

    Another vote for Mayim Bialik. Sorry, Ken, she's just got more personality than you. (I'm also privately rooting for Aaron Rodgers, mostly to annoy @Timby :evil: )

    Fuck that noise, Jeopardy is a show about celebrating knowledge and Bialik is an anti-vaxxer.

    Out of the guest hosts so far, Buzzy Cohen has been the best and I wouldn't object to him taking over the show. He and Anderson Cooper have been the only guest hosts to have the right combination of authority and personality.

    I...just haven't bothered watching any of them. Only Anderson and Katie held any interest for me but I just never got around to it. If their episodes show up on Netflix, I'll give them a go.

    That said, I'll probably make sure to watch Robin Roberts' episodes along with LeVar's.

    She's flip-flopped on vaccine talk so many times over the years that I don't believe anything that comes out of her mouth.

    She also blamed the #MeToo movement on actresses acting too slutty and stopping just short of saying they had it coming, and is a huge proponent of the IDF's efforts to eradicate Palestinians.

    And she's been known to kick a puppy on occasion!

    In all seriousness, that is the most reluctant statement on getting vaxxed I've ever seen.

    I tend to agree; comes across as agnostic rather than anti.

    Well, there are two sets of anti-vaxxers: the old woo and those that saw how fast things were rolled out. When it was done out of warp speed…folks on the left didn’t trust it. Now it is the other way around.

    Sigh…

    I think Mike Richards has been the best so far.

    There's another kind, the ones who are indifferent, who treat it like changing the oil in the car. If they remember and if they feel like finding the time to do it. Not anti-science, just indifferent.

    Savannah Guthrie is doing a decent job as well.

    There are more and more diseases…and more vaccines will come. Venter had an idea of a “minimal human” without the genetic junk we have been accumulating. But the image of the hapless eloi comes to mind
