God I hate those 'soap opera characters read the clues' categories. I knew we weren't finishing the DJ round, and for that? Come ON...I was almost rooting against Colby just for going back to it again and again.
We miss five clues but no video category, not a peep. Miss three clues but there's a video category? BURN IT! BURN IT ALL DOWN!!
Hard to muster sympathy when you're not consistent about this. Two clues missed on Monday. Where was the outrage?
Also: I liked it. Nice, silly change of pace. This is still a TV show that lives or dies on ratings, not meat and potatoes no frills A&Q.

The FJ response wasn't Two Noble Kinsmen, so bit of hyperbole in the latter part there.
Insta FJ, then thought, "Wait, wasn't Antony and Cleopatra during a war? No, wait, Troilus happened during the Trojan War...smidgen earlier." Even if you couldn't get that far, A&C and Julius Caesar make the process of elimination easier. Good FJ. Multiple ways to attack it.
