Re: 2020 Current Events Study Guide

In addition to the series winning all seven awards possible last night, Dan Levy became the first person to win in four separate disciplines (producing, directing, writing, and acting) in the same year. And there have been a few chances at that in recent years, (at least) Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Bill...

Re: Friday, September 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

There were two Jameses? Yep. Also two Judases but for some reason they didn't BMS Judas. It's strange that people don't seem to name their kids Judas lately. I've cribbed the paragraph below from everything-birthday.com (here's the link if you want to see for yourself). I apologize for its poor pun...

Re: Friday, September 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Surprised to see no complaints over the Air Force clue. It wasn’t 1760 PlayStations, it was 1760 PlayStation 3s. I was wavering based on the date given if this would be PS2 or PS3 and might not have buzzed if I was on the stage. Felt like the response of PlayStation should’ve been negged or at least...

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think the Berry/Barry pronunciation discussion is moot, not only because the official statement on the matter made no reference to pronunciation, but also because J! has had "scary cherry" as a correct response in a Rhyme Time category. I don't think it's entirely moot. I think it's what separate...

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Saying Barry and Berry are different names seems like it's trying to equate it to something like Manet vs Monet. The thing is those names have distinctly different vowel sounds, Monet with a long O and Manet with a short A. (At least I hope we all agree on that!) If either one didn't exist, you coul...

I hope no one ever writes "What is the Pitcher of Dorian Gray?"! That might set off a firestorm of nukular proportions.

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I actually thought they would make a score change for cochineal as a beetle derivative, instead of just insect. Beetle is correct. Wikipedia says cochineals are of the order Hemiptera. Beetles are of the order Coleoptera. Interestingly, this means that the response "What is a bug?" would or at leas...

I got Pantheon right away. Something is weird with the sound mix. The music was drowning out Alex's words. The Statue of Liberty has nothing to do with immigration. It was a gift to the United States from France on the occasion of our hundredth anniversary. Frankie's story was ridiculously boring. ...

Re: Football pre-emptions

Looking ahead to Sept. 21st on the schedule I saw that KGO will be showing the Raiders MNF game locally even though that team has relocated to LV. J! is listed to air at 9:30 after the post-game show. Week 13 has the 49ers hosting a MNF game which I'm sure KGO will have the local rights for as well...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

Anyone remember the LL Q that asked about Cher's swarthy trilogy? I can't find it among Pop Music questions or in the School of Rock ML, which I think it predates. There was one in the 70s Music ML Final asking for the titles of all 3 songs. It did come up somewhere before, maybe in LLLive or a pas...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

THE WHITE HOUSE He served the longest combined terms as president and vice-president of any American to date. Who is Nixon? (8 years as VP + 5 years as President) I'd say it needs more TOM or it likely goes 0/3. Nah this is quite gettable, and a well Jeopardy has mined quite often for similar FJs. ...

Name any one of the four solo albums released by the members of the rock band Kiss in 1978. Note, each title has two words, and a full title is required.

PRESIDENTIAL TRIVIA Of the ten most populous US states, the only one which is not the birthplace of a president. What is Florida?

Re: Full Credit Rolls

Just have to say MarkBarrett must be a literal saint to be putting up with all this. This Justin dude has said "I want" approximately 978 times in this thread. The number of "please" and "thank you"s seems to be much lower than that. Did you not have anyone in your life ever teach you manners?

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Yeah I found out about the week of 8:30 PM games on that Tuesday and recorded the last 4 of them, so when last week's games came around, my DVR picked up Monday's and skipped the latter 4 since I had already watched them.
