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! YHL
