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

I don't have any complaints about the format nor the extended chat time with the contestants but boy, that episode really ended with a whimper. There was absolutely no sense of buildup or crescendo for the next day's game. I would have liked to have seen a brief wrap-up commentary or snippets from t...

Got to rubber about halfway into the think music, then it was only a matter of deciding between Goodyear and Goodrich. I wasn't sure there was actually someone named Goodyear and figured "B. F. Goodrich" sounded a lot like someone's name and went with that. I think I outsmarted myself on this one be...

I don't there is a movie called just "Harry Potter", they are all "... and the <something>".

Malcolm X (not his birth name, but it still qualifies)

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I can't think of any good reason why they would want a photo when you register unless they intend on using it during the selection process. This seems wrong. Okay, it's a TV show and I understand they would like telegenic contestants but it is so very contrary to the J! ethos. On the bright side, I ...

To take this in the completely opposite direction: What would the ruling be if someone were to respond along the lines of "Why do I think the response is The Taming of the Shrew?" or "How many times have I told my children the story of Romeo and Juliet?" or "What's the point in studying The Merchant...

Another missed opportunity..."What's up, Doc?" is a question in itself No no no no no. Jeopardy contestants are expressly instructed that if the correct answer to something is "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" the correct response is "What is Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf." Regardless of what conte...

Re: TD 412 - SenseiCAY's birthday Mini-TD

Probably a dumb question but I can't look it up for myself without spoiling my response:

For Q1, is there some distinction between "featured competition" vs a regular event?

I also thought Grey's Anatomy finished a few years ago and guessed The Bachelor even though I wasn't sure it has had a 15 year run. In retrospect, it's not a drama either.

The Alps are in Italy too? I thought they were only in Switzerland. And just to stretch your (geographic) mind a little more, also in France, Austria, and Germany. [If I've missed any, please pile on.] Italy!, Monaco, Liechtenstein (I was there last year!), and Slovenia. And don't forget Italy. Sur...

Since it was a triple stumper I'm surprised nobody guessed the Wild West Show...Isn't it all most people know about Buffalo Bill? That was my fourth podium response. As mentioned above, to me "relay race against time" means there are dire consequences at stake. It was a perfectly gettable clue but ...
