A very familiar face is on the show today. ;)

Also, Ryan Chaffee makes his debut.
That familiar face certainly made an attempt.

Re: Friday, May 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That FJ could use some copy editing. At first I thought it was asking about an English-speaking country with a Spanish article in it. The actual clue is way less interesting. Agree 100%. My suggested wording: It's the only country in the world whose English name contains a Spanish article. I do thi...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

Today's contestant was 2010 J! College Tournament Champion Erin McLean. http://www.j-archive.com/showplayer.php?player_id=7553&highlight=erin+mclean Bummer she fell just short. She did really well, but once Jonathan said Stowe, I knew she was toast. I was able to edit this on Erin's 7553 J! page: E...

Ahh I really wanted to see Erin’s episode. Has anyone figured out a streaming option besides just having basic cable?

Re: Monday, December 2, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got Luther's 95 Theses right away and then skipped forward wondering if it would be a triple stumper. It would have been awful if Alex had been the only one to get that right and then blew it because of her lousy wager. I don't get it. Both her opponents finished below her pre-FJ total, so there ...

Re: Monday, November 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That FJ seemed . . . easy for a TOC match. I did wonder if Marathon was too obvious. I don't think Anneke should have been BMS'd for her response of Guyana in the $2,000 "To the Stars" clue asking for a South American territory. French Guiana isn't a more specific version of saying "Guyana"; Guyana...

Re: Tuesday, September 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

After a quick run-through of the archive, it appears Jason is the only 10+ winner who's won on multiple occasions thanks to the same classic second place miswager. I've seen this wagering mistake so often that it's baffling to me. It should be the second most basic wagering strategy you learn after ...

Re: Thursday, September 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was sure Air & Space was the most popular museum in D.C. but could not for the life of me think of which two words could be eliminated to give it its former name. ("If you take out 'air' and 'space', you're just left with "National Museum", which can't be right!") Tricky clue, I think. I figured ...

Re: J! in the Media

I would have gone with Garfield. It's supposed to be "100 people surveyed", right? The board totals only 66. Is there a threshold of 3 or something like that before a response is included? This happens often in round 3 after one family takes the first two rounds. The producers limit the available p...

To see the alumni in attendance this video does the trick: https://youtu.be/LsmoStU2N4k At 0:02, it looks like James was in the audience; and if so it's a good thing they didn't show this until now because James' first two episodes aired at the time the last episodes of Season 35 taped.

Re: Thursday, July 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Watching this from the audience, I had the tingly sense that Eric would go all in without thinking about basic wagering for a second and I was right. Shari’s wager made sense, but I can’t help but wonder if she’d had even a dollar less whether she would have opted to stay pat.
