Re: Wednesday, April 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I remembered James from the Chase but i didn't recall his dominance, check it out
I prefer close competitive games but I believe he is deserving of his wins even though some answers were easier than the last two tests IMO.

Re: Wednesday, March 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My first FJ thought was "Kilroy Was Here". then I thought Philippines and got it. I think the former phrase was more associated with the ETO.
Re the remark, "They're too young to remember", could be said about almost any clue.

Re: Friday, March 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Personally, I like the interviews (when and if the contestant is given an opportunity to speak in sentences and relax a bit) I wonder how the "skippers" would respond if they made it to the show and no interest was shown by the audience or their acquaintances to their moment in the spotlight. I thin...

Re: Friday, March 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Get ready for a negative comment. I, for one, am glad to see Alex J. go. Watching him play annoys me, so intense and doesn't seem to enjoy the experience. On more than one occasion, he would hesitate (kill time) and then at last second blurt out the correct answer. I'm referring to his previous appe...

Got stuck for too long trying to make something of "Rikki Tikki Tavi," which is not quite double-talk.
That's where I was as well.

Re: Monday, February 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

There seems to be a fair bit of interest in this tournament from board regulars. If so, good on you. Me? After 50 years of watching J!, I've become accustomed to a particular rhythm: intro, J! round, commercial break, interview, J! round (2), commercial break, DJ! round, commercial break, FJ!, end ...

Re: Monday, February 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Please let "Our Fair City" be about Car Talk . "Eugene" would be a valid response for "Fill'e'" More "Eugene": My hairtrigger response for "Where's Papa going with that axe?" was "Careful with that axe, Eugene." I'll be very glad if I never have to hear "God Bless America" at a seventh-inning stret...

Chalk me up as an FDR miss for taking the Pavlov bait, and a) being too intellectually lazy to suss out who preceded FDR- I don't have these memorized in order, but would have got there by remembering Hoover Dam, and b) not reading the actual meaning of the quote to realize it was definitely a para...

Re: Thursday, January 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The headshake at young people today was crickets heard for Fibber McGee’s partner. The Christie play also going TS surprised me more as that appeared in a clue last season. Watch the show people. It helps. The FJ! category had me eliminate the place that showed up on December 18th. I then told myse...

Re Final Jeopardy, A.T. remarks that one is easy and the other "difficult". I say not difficult, maybe to him, another needless comment.

What a great tournament and final. Congrats to all especially the three finalists, so impressive! Their composure, personalities and knowledge was something to behold. It's heartening to watch young enthusiastic contestants play the game as well as they did.

Because besides the fact that he's generally not very good with them, it's at least a bit unfair because even his muddled accent today could have been a tip-off to one or more of the contestants. :evil: (Poll request for those who got the clue based on Alex's reading?). Hmm. I'm not sure whether I ...

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wonder how far Ryan is going to take his streak now that he's been given a do-over and taken good advantage of it. This win moves him well into the top 100 all-time in regular-season winnings, and he seems highly motivated to do more. He gives too many incorrect responses in the main game, in my op...

Hope Tracey got good deals on her travel arrangements as she gifted David an extra $1000 that he could have spared.

Maybe age was a factor in getting FJ today. I'm old enough to remember when the Kennedys were in office. Even so, there has been so much written over the years about Bobby Kennedy as AG: Acting as a chief advisor to his brother during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Hoffa, dealing with the Mafia, his bat...

Re: Final Fleming Episode

Wow, thanks for posting this. I enjoyed it as you might imagine (from my moniker,misspelled as I believe you pointed out). I had forgotten how fast Art spoke. Also I disagree with the assumption that Art might not have known many of the answers/questions, on what is that based? As far as AT is conce...
