Re: Wednesday, September 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just got through watching this episode...and my only thought throughout most of the game was that someone needed to tell Kelly they are making decaffeinated tea nowadays.

Re: Monday, September 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was great to have a new episode to watch. So glad a new season is about to play out. For me, the highlight of this first episode of Season 37 was the opening montage...and that last cut of a younger Alex (still with dark hair) reminding me of the very early years of Jeopardy (and reminding me of his...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I was really looking forward to the School of Rock Mini-League...but it turned out to be a humiliating experience. Not only did I finish dead last in my group, I was the only one not to win a match, had fewest TCA and fewest TMP. Thank goodness it's over. Hoping for a better time with the Pen and Pa...

Re: Friday, October 4, 1985 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just got through watching this episode. (Have been out of town the last few days and catching up on DVR recordings). And off topic...but it's neat being able to watch some of these older episodes again. The category names were simpler and more direct back in the early days, for sure. For the count...

Another Alex & Sarah show in the FJ! round. Alex will miss Sarah.
Me too. I liked Sarah. Wide knowledge base and a very pleasant personality. I hope she makes the TOC.

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

I guess I'm out of the loop...but is there something significant about Barbara Lowe, other than being a 5-day champion? I don't remember her...but it's been over 30 years and during 1985-86 season, I worked most evenings and that was in the days before VCRs were widely available so I must have misse...

Re: Learned League 84

Meanwhile...I am really looking forward to the 1970s Music mini-league. Maybe because I grew up in that decade, I thought the 1970s had the best music ever made. Hopefully, the questions for that mini-league will align with my knowledge base. Looks like this could be a brutal ML; 33% average get ra...

Thank you for a fun game. First one I'd played in a while; it was nice to finish in the top 10.

Oh come on, how can you not appreciate Khalilah muttering "This is turning into a disaster" ?! :lol: She's adorable, we loved her. I chuckled at that, too. Considering the type of game she was in and the way things were going, that was an appropos utterance. Cringeworthy game...has been a while sin...

Re: Learned League 84

After five consecutive seasons in D rundle, I failed to exit the relegation zone and am back to E rundle for LL85. As they say, back to the drawing board.

Re: Thursday, February 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was sad to see Mackenzie's run end; I really enjoyed her run on the show. Not only was she bright with a deep knowledge base, but she had a great personality and seemed like a fun person. At least, I know she'll be part of the next TOC.

Aaron seems intense, in the Matt Jackson mode.

Re: Learned League 84

I must be setting a LL record for ineptitude this season. A personal record-setting 7th straight loss (dating back to last season) and a 2(3)-8(4) loss on MD6.

Re: Learned League 84

Facepalm moment when I saw the correct answer for the restaurant chain question on MD4; could not, for the life of me, come up with Howard Johnson but my sister's first job was as a waitress at our local Howard Johnson restaurant when she was a teenager. This is already a lost season for me and I ap...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 28, 2020

For 30 minutes before the test, I was reading the Wikipedia article on Opera, since it is a weak category for me. Then, the online test started. Lo and behold, there was an Opera question, about "Carmen", something I had just read about on Wikipedia...and still got the composer's name wrong. So much...

Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was in the "Night Before Christmas" club. Grrrr...I should have known FJ.

I hate categories like the Jeff Goldblum category. He was so slow reading the clues...really slowed down the game.

Re: LL83: Learned League

I opened LL83 with a 3(3)-4(4) loss. Whitney Houston was a guess that actually was correct; I guessed Denver (which was wrong)...but was also the most common incorrect answer.

At least I'm 1.000 in DE after one day.

Re: Wednesday, November 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I am embarrassed to admit, as a former meteorologist (and with a Bachelors in meteorology), that I missed FJ.

The TOC Final is going to be epic.
