Re: Thursday, February 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Eric had a couple of tough negs and pulled out a tough FJ final. That Napoleon quote was a tough one. For FJ, I don't like the reference to any particular border city being in the news. What was in the news was the ignorance, cruelty and racism of the present administration across all the border ci...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I understand if all you want to do is take the test and have no desire to be on the show, but if you want to be on, then why not? I've gone to many auditions, have been on two shows, and every time, they take/want your picture to go with the application. Saying no to putting up a picture is a sure ...

Guys leave econgator alone, if he doesn't want to be on, more room for the rest of us. Certainly his right.

Lots of good Midwest options: Milwaukee/Chicago/Nashville/Columbus, generally we've been lucky to get more than one of those for most recent tests.

Another missed opportunity..."What's up, Doc?" is a question in itself No no no no no.

I just stumbled across this thread when looking for something else and now am once again fascinated with whether or when this judging rarity has ever actually occurred.

Re: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

How in the world was there no reversal on "perfect squares"? That was every bit as legitimate a response as "square roots." I think Rob has a rock-solid case for being invited back, particularly since the next clue chosen was DD3. It sounded to me like there was a tape stoppage at that point. My gu...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

My DVR didn't pick up the show this morning, no idea if it was mislabeled as a rerun or the local station preempted for something. If Mark or anyone felt like throwing up an upload and it wasn't a lot of trouble, would be appreciated. Or if there's a reddit guy for WWTBAM I'd appreciate a link.

Re: Monday, February 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's simple enough to say Bif very likely could have won the game if he bets it all on the DD. No guarantees everything plays out the same but no obvious reason to think it would play out differently. It's just surprising, he seemed to understand the spot he was in on the first DD, the scores at the...

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

That was definitely one of the luckiest wins ever. Is it? Everyone bet properly so this is what I’d expect from a difficult FJ. (Difficult for me at least because I'm familiar enough with the material and thought it must have been a gender bender comedy like Twelfth Night). Uh, no. Bif and Josh bet...

Instaget FJ! for me. Transcon was a decent guess, but Iditarod? :o Actually, Iditarod was my first answer before I crossed it out and wrote "Pony Express." I don't think it was a bad guess either, as the Iditarod also started pretty much as a relay race against time. The category is The 19th Centur...

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

For what it's worth, this is not the first time the lead has changed on a late-game judge's reversal, and the disadvantaged party didn't get to come back in those cases either. And there have been more egregious cases, including one where the margin of victory was the rebound on the reversed neg. S...

I was thinking it could be conceivable that we might see Meghan again. I don't know if there's any precedent for this kind of appeal, but if she told them she knew either of the final two $2000 clues but held off on buzzing to ensure the lead in case she was wrong, it would be a pretty good argument...

Guessed Mariah Carey, mostly because I remember her film Glitter was set in NYC. (And I only remember that because it was filmed pre-9/11 but came out post.
