Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'll go on record as saying Nate's DD bet was just about right. He was dominating on the buzzer and a nice built up lead from SJ. A potentially hard (it was very hard IMHO) 2K question. If he misses it, he still has a pathway to reach FJ with a lead. 50/50 odds that someone else finds the DD3, and ...

Now THIS was a game. Nate really made it a tough fight.

"Pretty Woman" is a film?!

0/5 in Numeric Phrases.

No guess on FJ! "Take the A Train" is in my brain space, but it just wasn't there in 30 seconds. I think "Take Five" was blocking the mental path.
GTFO

Re: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I couldn't come up with "Panacea". In my defense, a tornado went by 2 miles away and we might have been slightly distracted. I'll have to rethink my strategy of waiting for the hail before looking out the window and/or heading to the dungeon :). Liz saved the show about $20-$30K by denying James th...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I remember teachers loved to show Glory in the classroom. Pepsi made an edited version for classroom use (of course, with the Pepsi logo prominently displayed during the introduction) that removed a scene where somebody gets their head blown off. For some reason I don't even remember us covering mu...

Re: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Vowels threw me. I overthought "aisle" and was thinking maybe it was a something-way. Ended up 0/5 in the category, which is rare for me in a word category. Always have to give pause when I skunk a word category. However, going 0/5 on Mary Poppins was not surprising to me. "Emily Blunt" is an utter...

Re: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Liz found DD2 with her opening selection of the DJ! round, not that it did her any good. That kind of Greek mythology word origin stuff is often no gimme, so I wonder if James would have known that one? I'd be extremely surprised if he didn't know the word from Greek for cure-all. I initially thoug...

Re: Tuesday, May 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Anyway... I WAG'ed "Glory" based on Civil War movie and the time period. People who are weak in American History and/or war history may not have caught the "Union" hint. Basically anytime you see Union used in the context of an American war they're talking about the Northern side in the U.S. Civil ...

I said this before James appeared on the show: There ought to be a rule that categories can only be played straight down. I said that during the recent team tournament when one or more players were playing horizontally. Then don't even bother with a board. Just read out the clues 1-by-1. It would b...

I had a "waiting for the other shoe to drop" feeling all through the first half of double jeopardy. It was obvious that Jason was desperately trying to find the Daily Doubles before the champ did. In a sense the game turned on that throwaway clue in the love category about the name for a person who...

Re: FJs for the 5/13/19 week

Got Sandy D on Tuesday. Thursday was an instaget to "the guy that wrote Roots ". I came up with Alex Haley just before time ran. My wrong guess for Friday was Life. Wasn't sure it was old enough (and it's not), but it was the best guess I had. Well Life magazine as a title goes back to 1883 - it ju...

TV Cartoons? Let's see if I can run this. (Spoilers: Yes.) Also got all but SWAT in Acronyms. I heard 1990s Songs for $400 in Walmart yesterday. Not a glimmer of recognition in the rest of the category. Can't say I've heard of Blind Melon or Public Enemy. No guess on FJ! Can't say that I recognize ...

I'm 32, probably the most non-movie person on this board (haven't been to a theater in over seven years), and I've definitely heard of Born on the Fourth of July.

Another pre-call for Dead Poets Society here.

I don't know what other guesses are even plausible for Final. Maybe if somebody had a major brain fart and tried Born on the Fourth of July?
i did as well and also threw in poetic justice
