Re: Jeopardy on Netflix

Only 45 episodes, all older. The show has ~230 episodes a year.

We're still all stuck without a legit/legal streaming method, because of syndication agreements.

But I thought every American schoolchild knew Gene Autrey wrote "Rudolph."
Every American schoolchild probably did, between 1950 and 1960. I only knew because I'm a big Angels baseball fan.

Re: Monday, October 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I am proud of the fact I only got "Empire Strikes Back" in the Star Wars category. Seriously? An entire category on a mediocre sci-fi franchise that peaked with Episode IV (the origional) and has regressed consistently since? Low hanging troll bait. We've all got things we don't like in pop culture...

Re: Thursday, October 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought I knew my 90's cartoons forward and backward, but Æon Flux was a total NHOI for me. Even with the movie, it's a REALLY niche character. The show was first on an MTV showcase of animation called "Liquid Television" in the early 90s, then had some standalone episodes (also on MTV). But it w...

FJ I considered and dismissed the correct answer (Solomon as well) because I assumed that for church/state reasons, the House wouldn't put such a major Judeo-Christian figure there. I said Julius Caesar. Church/state reasons rarely seem to apply to public displays - there are still 10 Commandments,...

Count me as another person confused by the FJ category. I knew who the Screenplay Oscar in 1997 went to, but it took me about 25 seconds to assume they didn't need a hyphenated response. Glad I'm not alone.

Ron reminded me (in voice, looks, and mannerisms) of a slightly rounder Adam Savage of the Mythbusters.

Entertaining game tonight - I imagined Dave would go a lot further than three wins. Still, great game by Burt.

It was never said in an episode even though everyone thought it was?

Writers, since when is the Appalachian Trail considered on the east coast? It goes through a number of East Coast states. Sacramento is in a west coast state, but not on the west coast. Depends what you're talking about when you say "west coast". Sometimes it means states, sometimes it means the ge...

Judges: In "Math Words", "P: Scheme up this figure with a polygon for a base & triangles with a common vertex for faces"

"polyhedron" instead of "pyramid"?

Doesn't fit the "Scheme up" clue, but works otherwise.

I'd wager that if we were to allow "states not accessible by waterway" as the definition of "landlocked", there may not be any landlocked states at all.

Re: Something unusual happening this week (6/11/18) - possible spoiler?

No alternates were used in the Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday games this week. I was at the taping, and overheard one of the alternates (after the morning session) saying she wouldn't be needed.

Can't speak to the Thursday or Friday games.

I was in the audience for this show and the next two (taped back on February 14th). Strange and awesome to finally see it on the air.
