Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Like Bamaman, for FJ, had to guess between Motel 6 and Super 8. Guessed correctly, but my logic was merely "which one have I heard mentioned on Jeopardy! more often?" Turns out the 8 was from $8.88, so the rate wasn't actually in the name. Good to know. I combined the names from both companies and ...

So when are Gilbert Gottfreid and Fran Drescher hosting? :lol:

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sure, Ken was reading faster but the recent reruns reminded me that Alex also used to read a lot faster. More jarring to me was Ken's pitch - his voice is considerably higher than Alex's.

Solid first effort, but I'll need to hear him say "genre" before a final judgement. :lol:

Didn't we just have a clue about the John Updike "Rabbit" series, or was is in one of the repeats?

Another precall for Don Quixote. Quickly read the clue, saw no reason to change, sat smugly for the next 29 seconds. Had I parsed it a little closer I would have realized they were not asking for the title character. Lesson learned.

It's been a tough FJ! week for me, picking responses that are plausible but incorrect. Today was Mel Brooks.

[edit: Huh, it appears Mel Brooks it still alive. Whoops.]

I know what a pyrrhic victory is but did not know the term was derived from a person. I went with Hannibal.

NHO Marjorie Karmel so that was no help. Went with Albert Schweitzer on the vaguely french connection and a dim recollection that there is a foundation related to him.

Re: Monday, December 7, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought manticore and gorgon were pretty bad guesses, but if someone had written unicorn I would have laughed out loud. I was pretty confident my response of auroch was correct. I'm curious if any boardies got this solely from clue context, without any prior knowledge of the animal being mentioned...

Re: Tuesday, December 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For some reason AT&T TV showed a rerun of Mackenzie Jones (her seventh game I think). This is confusing to me. Is there some way to watch J! on AT&T TV other than watching it on your local affiliate's channel? I have AT&T TV but I always watch it on KOMO and they showed the correct show last night....

Re: What do you want to see from the vault?

FWIW and I don't know if this is related, but last night watching WDIV (Detroit) via AT&T TV was a rerun of Mackenzie Jones' seventh(?) game.

Played off the archive. Knee-jerked English Channel for FJ! but remembered that swimming it is a "thing". Knew the Strait of Gibraltar was too narrow so that left the Mediterranean by default.

Re: Monday, November 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My precall time was spent running through all the Mel Brooks movies I could remember, and on the reveal it was difficult to dislodge the wagon wheels from that rut. I'm curious if this clue would have a higher get rate with a slight rewording: "In the original script for this 1975 film, the title ob...

My recollection was that this is a more accurate translation but research shows Om may be more common. I give myself credit.

Re: Wednesday, November 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said bottom dollar instead of bottom line because I thought the responses had to have money in them. Ditto. Flailed on FJ!. Any time I have to remember greek roots I have to force my way through a forest for latin first. Abandoned that and started working with "rey" or "el rey" - another dead end...

Re: Wednesday, November 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ugh, hated that FJ! clue. X-ray seemed too early and generic which left me with mammogram, CT scan and MRI. Eliminated MRI as too modern. I think my brain transformed "now used for regular screenings" into "now regularly used for screenings" and that tipped the scales to CT scan.

No idea how I made the association to "thumb", but once I did it was just a short hop to Tom Thumb. I think it's a darn good guess.

Am I the only one who immediately dismissed red and blue as way too easy and continued looking for a better response?
