Re: Friday, October 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It amazes me that a person can make it all the way to the show and not know how to wager.

Re: Tuesday, September 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thanks for posting your comments redtie, your positive personality and enthusiasm came across well, I thought. Valerie's as well. This show was enjoyable to watch because of the contestants. Which brings to my mind this thought; because of the rules change re 5X winners, we miss seeing more of conte...

Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Missed this episode (thanks again, KABC and NBA), so only read FJ here. I was way out in the weeds. I never heard the quote from Steinbeck, so couldn't solve it directly. The best I could do was tie in to the beginnings of the civil rights movement in the 50s. (Which, in hindsight, is the right gen...

Re: Tuesday, June 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What a letdown from James's run. Boring, nothing special. MJEA - Make Jeopardy Exciting Again I disagree. I thought this game had three very competitive players and, if I recall correctly, was anyone's to win during most of the play. If any games were boring, it was Jame's, where the outcome is kno...

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...

Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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.

LOTF was an involuntary precall; still I can't quite believe they dipped into that well yet again... :roll: I suppose Maggie was thinking of a different kind of shell.
