It's been done and Alex was not happy. A different thing it reminded me of was Pat Healy selecting the category ..."UM" and Alex thinking the champ was just stuttering about his next call: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=230
Did anyone mess up the Mona Lisa clue with Da Vinci? Van Gogh then Picasso had me blurting out another artist before I could take it back. If the category is going to be a mix of things I like to see something different in the second box. After two in a row with names I was in that pattern. The Warhol DD and Fauvism were easier to handle.
The FJ clue put me in the right city and then I was left to guess as the names provided were not going to help me. Holmes & Watson seemed like an elementary guess and I went for them. Scrooge & Marley did not shake my confidence when Karen's response was revealed. Alex's first words after Neil's correct response let me know he was on his way to letting us know that was it.
2 By 4 could have been quick math calculations or carpentry and that scared the players? If they had known it was music then it should not have played last. I like those kind of clues with three pieces of information with double songs plus the artist. The writers can mix it up to have something 2012 to help a young player and something 1950s to help an older player. Zodiac not completed last week was limited in potential material while 2 By 4 was wide open.
I randomly picked three pages in my Billboard book:
$1200 - "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" & "Killing Me Softly With His Song"
$1600 - "Gitarzan" & "Everything Is Beautiful"
$2000 - "One Bad Apple" & "Down By The Lazy River"
