Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

In Wednesday's game, Ken made a mistake in one of his "fun facts" comments. He said that the Germans used to refer to B flat as H; in fact, they used to refer to B flat as B and B natural as H. (I'm not sure the degree to which this is still practiced, but Ken definitely got it backwards.) I think ...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 1/21/2021

Saving TPH the typing -- Yes, the "Tales From" question was way, way undervalued at $400. It's polling 6%. I don't know what they were thinking on that one. Sometimes it seems current TV is treated like it was 30 years ago, when there were only a handful of networks and a limited amount of content,...

Re: Friday, January 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Movie quotes in DJ is always no bueno for me. Managed the top two, nothing else. Negged with "chorus" on THIRD $800. I'm having trouble figuring out how "lots to say" leads to "orchestra" even with some Googling. Concertos can be described as a dialogue between a soloist and an orchestra, with musi...

Re: Ken Jennings as a Host Poll

The producers are going to want to see extended ratings data, and also get a feel for how probable candidates handle the production schedule and adjust to the role. That would have been my expectation as well, but it seems the producers are not treating the guest hosting as auditions. Without seein...

I chose option #2. My actual feelings combine the first clause of that option and the second clause of option #3. I think he is doing well but I do want to see the other hosts.
I chose option #3, but my opinion is the same as yours.

Re: Wednesday, January 13, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My closed caption is still spoiling every clue before KJ has finished reading it in some cases, and always before it is spoken. Anyone else? Or do most boardies eschew the CC? This might be an interesting poll question when we have a slow poll week. Our CC almost always spoils the answer, but I can...

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I turned it on in the middle of the second clue so I was a little taken aback not to hear Alex’s voice. Did Ken say anything at the beginning beyond the usual greetings? I was pleasantly surprised how well he did. Being very familiar with the show and how it works was no doubt a help for him. Reser...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Brooke can certainly read questions faster than Sara.

I thought a few of the questions in the multiple choice round bordered on the ridiculously obscure, although I guess not to Ken. I wonder how the difficulty level will come across to the primetime audience trying to play along at home.

Re: Wednesday, January 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I knew the minute I saw it it was likely a marvel movie. At least I was right on that. Shame is, I've seen Wonder Woman and could not have told you the the war was WW1, just a lot of crazy green screen (CGI) stuff that could never happen in a bazillion years. I do admire the people who write that s...

I briefly thought of Warhorse for FJ, then went “duh, of course it’s Wonder Woman”. The publicity around the sequel probably helped.

This FJ is another opportunity to wonder if certain facts known to “older” people might be more obscure to the younger generation. Doubt that Cyrano is as well known as it used to be.
