Re: Monday, March 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Fun fact for those deep into statistics keeping: I believe Johnny is the first champ from Vermont in almost three years. I saw a couple weeks ago someone from the Rutland Herald retweeted Johnny about his upcoming appearance, so I'm very pleased to see a big W from the right podium this evening! Lo...

Re: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Pre called the band, wrote the band immediately in ink ... but picked both songs incorrectly (Help! and I'm So Tired). There's no other band in the 60s that I think that would fit the "overworked" description. The No. 1 songs The Rolling Stones had in the latter half of 1965 were "(I Can't Get No) ...

I just recognized the Canterbury Tales art style.

I had to look up the difference between Googol and Googolplex.

Re: Wednesday, March 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Looks like I'm going to be one of the rare people who missed this FJ. I wrote down "Psycho" first and then crossed it out and wrote "The Birds" thinking a movie with that name would be more likely to have a strings-only score. I didn't think about Psycho's signature "stabbing" music until it was to...

Re: HQ Trivia

That is, until the fad wears off. I give it until ~June at most, before the viewership declines like Pokemon Go. Hey now, Pokemon Go may have lost 95% of its users from the initial explosion, but I just passed 33 million XP and took over a bunch of gyms on my commute to work this morning! :lol:

Front page of Google's Entertainment section has a few articles highlighting Paris' appearance.

Re: Tuesday, March 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I just came to the thread to see if anyone had already mentioned Paris' famous past. :D I've seen him on a couple of other game shows over the years, and he tends to not mention Mike Teevee.

Put me in the "picked Fountainhead instead of Atlas Shrugged" category.

After the category reveal, my g/f turned to me and said "Aren't there just two?" I replied "Aren't you the one who collects Archie Comics?" Then the commercials end, and she proceeded to miss the question.

Insta-get for me.

Interesting that the correct response to FJ! was Pokémon and there was a category that had "GO" in quotes, since the media-noted viral popularity of Pokémon GO! might still have been fresh on players' minds at the time of taping

Well, my son named after a Beatle recently had his Bar Mitzvah, so yeah, insta-get for the Torah and Sgt Pepper, and I even said to my girlfriend "Boy, that's a lot to write, I wonder if they'd accept just Sgt.

Re: Tuesday, February 28, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, the Jew over here was confused by the phrasing. I asked my GF "Is there a specific phrasing of the question that's supposed to be well known"? I was thrown by the fact that they were looking for the question; I assumed there had to be something more precise. "Why is this night different from a...

Thanks to the proliferation of Cable TV channels, I could only think of "Love it or List it". :p But yeah, that's not the common turn of phrase in my world either.

I haven't done the math but ... if they BMS'd Pranjal for "Harry Potter 7" (and I'm not saying they should have, just asking if they did), Monikka could have either clammed or rebounded (since she clearly knew "Deathly Hallows" was #7). Would that have affected her crush/non-crush scenario and chang...

I didn't go to school in the US- is the FJ question something that you might have encountered in high school? Not exactly phrased that way but if you learn about the Civil war would you have learnt about Missouri not being a part of the war and then used your geography knowledge of the states to kn...
