Re: Wednesday, May 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The "valve" CC error today was probably the most egregious one recently, because it happened twice. And there have been a lot to choose from. What is going on with the captions?

Went with "Space Race." Gah.

On the clue for plagiarize, did anyone else respond "paraphrase"?
I did, too. I was wondering about that ruling.

No clue on FJ!

Why did they let Juliet get away with that phrasing during DJ? Bill’s explanation made no sense. Without that she doesn’t have a runaway.
Because technically her response was a question. However, TPTB like the response to start with Who, What, etc.

If there's a conflict airing J!, WABC usually puts it on a subchannel. Not tonight. :cry:

EDIT: WABC said it will air tonight's episode tomorrow (Saturday) at 7 pm (if the Draft ends on time). :roll:

Interesting, Santiago's population is greater than Buenos Aires when only using the city proper, but the opposite is true when factoring in the metro areas.

Re: Wednesday, March 10, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've never read a James Bond book, so I had to run through the movie titles. It hit me: The Spy Who Shagged Me. That sounds like someone else is the narrator. It took me a few seconds to realize that title is the Austin Powers spoof. Eventually I got to The Spy Who Loved Me. I don't even think I've ...

Funny, I said Charles in Charge for the Who's the Boss clue. Oddly, they both began in 1984.

I quickly wrote down Sacramento and Reno and put my pen down.
I had those 2 but quickly remembered that Carson City is the capital and changed it in time.

Re: J! in the Media

"On Alex Trebek’s Final ‘Jeopardy!,’ a Last Introduction From a Friend" Johnny Gilbert, 92, started on the game show with Trebek in 1984.

How does one get "Carolina" from "Charles"?
The Latin for Charles is Carolus, change to the feminine suffix -ina and there you go. Similar as Georgia is named for King George II. Also District of Columbia for Christopher Columbus.

We were puzzling over why this game was rebroadcast this week. Presumably it was for Alex’s trip to the AFB in Japan,

There's usually NBA basketball on all day on ABC affiliates, so that'll be a tough one.

The most surprising takeaway from me about the entire tournament was not Brad not being able to buzz in against Ken and James, but his numerous wrong responses in DD finds.
