On "Dr.Phil gets psychological", we're looking at how the housemates are doing half way through the show. Instead of talking to Zoltan this week about this week's poll, we talk to Judge Jones from Regras Gorge for his comments about the legality of Sim Brother Penitentiary.
Let's do it!
Court In Session
Judge Doug Jones may not be a household name but he is currently presiding over the controversial trial of the famous popstar Jack Michaelson. Before being appointed to the bench in SimCity, Judge Doug Jones has represented Regras Gorge in all aspects of political life. From working within city hall to becoming a Simpublican congressman for the city, Judge Jones is known to be firm in his sentencing and very rigid in what is right and wrong. It was an honour when he agreed to meet me during a recess to talk over the Sim Brother and the Penitentiary task in particular.
Sim Brother (P) - Judge, it is good for you to agree to see me. I know you are a very busy man.
Judge Doug Jones - Yes, I am so make this quick.
SB - Sim Brother Penitentiary. Was it legal for the prison officers to treat the inmates like they did?
JDJ - As the housemates waived all of their rights when they went in there, that covers you completely. You could even kill one of them and get away with it. It's entertainment.
SB - Do you watch the show?
JDJ - A little bit. My daughter Giselle is the big fan. I'm surprised she passed Magna Cum Laude with a 3.9 GPA with all of the time she was watching it. She nearly missed her final exam because of your show.
SB - So who is your favourite housemate?
JDJ - My favourite is Condoleezza. She's feisty and firm and has tried to buck the system. If there are no rules, she wasn't really breaking any. Giselle keeps going on about how wonderful Alyssa is and my wife Ann who occasionally catches it says John is one very handsome man. She says the same about me too, of course.
SB - Who are you voting to evict this week?
JDJ - My voting is a private and personal thing. If you try and find out by any other means, you will be arrested and on a chain gang for 5 years for interfering with the electoral system.
SB - That sentence is quite harsh, don't you think?
JDJ - No. 10 years is harsh and that's what you'll get if you complain any more. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to send Jack Michaelson's defence counsel to prison for 30 days for contempt of court because he needs a stupid haircut. I will be sending Jack Michaelson to jail himself for the same charge after this trial comes to an end.
SB - Before I get locked up, let us now go and see what the housemates have been up to today.
A Relaxed Morning
The Ladies' Game
The Practicing Python
6.19pm - John is in the games room on his own getting some practice in for tomorrow's game.
7.07pm - Tiger joins him and together they have a glass of wine together.
Tiger - Quite a close game.
John - It was unfortunate we lost but I will give it my best tomorrow.
Tiger - It will only tie us if you win?
John - It is better to draw than to lose completely. However, it isn't whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game.
Two Naughty Nominees
9.21pm - Alyssa and Steve are in the games room now. Alyssa is also getting in some practice for tomorrow's crucial match.
10.17pm - After an hour's practice, It isn't long before the romantic pair are on the couch again canoodling. They appear to be more amorous than the day before making out with each other, oblivious to what else has appeared to be going on around them. Alyssa did make the original running but Steve certainly appears more confident and forward.
Alyssa (giggling) - That tickles. I shouldn't tell you what that does to me.
Steve - I can imagine. Should I stop?
Alyssa - Certainly not. Please carry on.
Steve - You're the boss.
Comfort & Captains
11.28pm - Condoleezza is being comforted by Tiger in the shower room.
Condoleezza - I'm finding things very hard at the moment. I don't want to go.
Tiger - I don't want you to go either. I'll miss you if you do.
Alyssa and John are outside in the bathroom.
John - All ready for tomorrow?
Alyssa - I am looking forward to our match.
John - If you think it is going to be a David v Goliath, it might not be so easy.
Alyssa - I've got a few tricks up my sleeve.
John - That top you are wearing doesn't have any sleeves, so I look forward to seeing what you'll conjour up.
To Be Continued
And that is where we are going to leave them. With the Nominees' second victory making the least they could get tomorrow to be a draw, the Captain's Match is more crucial to the Pythons in order to save face. With voting still going on for the nominees and closing at midnight on Friday night (GMT), you decide which one of them gets taken out of the picture below.
