Re: Wednesday, November 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Loved Elise’s gameplay! This is the first time I’ve been actively irritated that contestants no longer walk out to the podiums, nor come out from behind them after the game. I really wanted to see the rest of that dress!

Re: Friday, October 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was rooting for Kara so it was disheartening to see her blow $7,000 late in double jeopardy. She really didn't need to make that $5,000 Daily Double. Just finding it was enough to secure her lead. A new friend of mine is close friends with Kara, so I was rooting for her. She made me nervous there!

Re: Friday, October 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Don't say St. Louis, don't say St...damnit". The Pony Express/St. Joseph connection strikes again. When's the last time a contestant got that right? September 6, 2002. Ask me how I know. How do you know? I was standing one podium over next to the guy on stage as he made a new record Daily Double w...

They have resurrected the Lānaʻi, lanai error from last year. Ugh.
They just said it sounds like. That seems to be fine.
It doesn’t though. Less than rose and rosé. Lānaʻi has one more syllable.

Re: Wednesday, July 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The way this show consistently ignores the ‘okina in the Hawai’ian language is sloppy and frustrating. The words lanai and Lana’i are different words! Are you willing to give a brief rundown of the difference? That sounds interesting. Short version: it marks a glottal stop (a catch in the throat, a...

Thank you, sir. My partner feels much the same way. He watched the entire four hour “History of the Eagles” with me, then turned to me and said, “We didn’t need that band.”

I learned a number of years ago that the original lyrics were, “From California to Staten Island” and there were several unflattering, political verses seldom recorded. http://www.chimesfreedom.com/2012/06/06/this-land-is-your-land-the-angry-protest-song-that-became-an-american-standard-woody-at-100/

I hear what people are hearing as the y in moody. But it comes across very clearly to me as an enunciated terminal d. It's so clear to me that, if the clue had been looking for "moody", I think they'd have to neg her.

I hear the same thing as this learned penguin.

Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another retail miss for me, as I've never been to Williams Sonoma and don't know what they sell. That's because there aren't any Williams-Sonoma stores in dead malls. A high-end cookware place is going to be one of the first to close when a mall starts going downhill. When my Williams-Sonoma gets r...

I knew Randy had a stack of Oscars but I had no idea he was a member of an award winning dynasty. It's good to learn new things. (I also got hopelessly mired in Barrymore, even though I could tell it was wrong, I just couldn't get into a different mental space. Very frustrating.)

Hard to see Nate miss Natasha, Pierre... when ads for that show were all over NYC a few years ago. I’m embarrassed to admit I couldn’t come up with Pierre, and I saw the show! (Which was amazing and really should have had a longer run.) The title was so cumbersome most people just called it “Comet ...

FANTASTIC game. Judges table: Probably a long shot, but any chance "eighty-six" gets accepted on DD1? I know the clue mentioned something to do with the sea so likely not, but I thought eighty-six could refer to throwing something away too. Thought it was worth an inquiry, thanks in advance. Not a ...

My strategy if I get on Jeopardy will be to get 20 of 21 FJs correct.
Good plan.
