I watch Jeopardy at home when I remember to, which isn't always. It
doesn't hurt that my parents are watching Korean soap operas and my dad
*has* to have his Monday night football (broadcast on AFKN for the
benefit of all the American GI's, of course).
Sometimes I did watch the news--it's really neat to listen to an
on-the-spot interpretation going on. I'm not even sure how it's possible
in such a sensitive area as politics. When I try to translate Korean I
usually have to wait until the end of the sentence before rearranging
everything into English!
