Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ken has his own phraseology sometimes and I liked his, "Those are they" today. OTOH, I do not at all like his repeated "we were going for" when no one gets it. Something about saying it that way sounds off to me like it's saying there were multiple correct answers but "we were going for" this parti...

Re: Friday, January 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

*Currently scored as 0 because I don't know how to rule it: said Southern Pacific for Fresno. What I'm seeing about the history of the two railways makes it hard for me to parse out. If you look at the History of Fresno, it suggests CP is the right answer, but if you look at the history of SP, it s...

I saw the movie The Queen and the that was not going to help. I have only seen the first episode of The Crown. Would having watched more of that series given me some memorable scene to tilt my scale the other way?
Thanks to watching The Crown, JFK was one I could immediately eliminate.

Re: Friday, January 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

From my viewing, it seemed like most of the time came from the closing credits. As I said earlier, the timing from "This is Jeopardy!" to the end of the credits was 19'37". (Actually, that includes the Geico ad, so subtract 12 seconds if you like.) Completely standard length--longer than some episo...

"Jeopardy!" contains both commercials that are added by your local station and commercials that are added by the syndicator (the latter are called "barter") -- the syndicated commercials come between the end of the DJ! round and the bumper in the middle of that break. I didn't time out the breaks w...

The Fifth Dimension released Aquarius and Let the Sunshine In as one song. Wikipedia says the fourth song was Hair (recorded by the Cowsills). And a th...

WLS (7) in Chicago had a crawl that they would re-air Tuesday and Wednesday’s shows tomorrow (Friday) at 1pm and 1:30pm CT respectively. This after moving Tuesday’s to a sub-channel as well as airing it at 3:07am. Wednesday’s was not moved to the sub-channel but was shown at 3:07am. I’ll grudgingly ...

I went with TWA. Didn't think of Pan Am, but since I don't know when the various legacy airlines went under, I probably would have stuck with TWA even if I had thought of Pan Am, on the theory that it's more global. --Bob I knew it was Pan Am from having seen the movie multiple times but to me, Pan...

Noticed slightly different theme music for the closing credits. Might that have been from Season 1? I didn't notice a difference other than being much shorter. It would appear they go the minute for the announcement at the beginning my shortening the end credits and cutting the music to end at a pl...

Re: OBIT: Alex Trebek

Possibly, but around here, at least, the NBA is on ABC on Christmas Day, si we would almost certainly be pre-empted if the season goes a head as they plan to. Almost certainly relegated to its alternate 2:05am (or something like that) slot here in Chicago. Perhaps, given the circumstances, Jeopardy...

The FJ! clue had me right for the wrong reason as I had a Charter Oak path to a quick solve. That's okay as J! does not requite someone to show their work.

Totally surprised they accepted "colors" without BMS'ing it.
"Show your colors" is more familiar to me than "show your true colors".

At an airport with a control tower, taxiing on a runway requires an explicit clearance to do so (e.g. if given a clearance to taxi without a route specified, the route is at pilot discretion but that discretion does not include taxiing on a runway). I pictured the action of taxiing to get to the sp...

And you can't exactly use 'taxiway' in a clue designed to prompt the response 'taxiing'
You can't but instead of "What a plane is doing moving down a runway, preparing for take-off", use "What a plane is doing heading to a runway, preparing for take-off".

I feel an erratum should be added to the Gettysburg Address clue. The speech begins Four score, not fourscore, it is this way in virtually every online text and in pictures of Lincoln's speech itself. So by making Sarah change her response from "three" to "threescore", they were just plain wrong. T...
