:( :mrgreen: :cry:

Third 5/5 week this season. All instagets.

This has to be at least the fourth time I've failed to recall the name Becky-freaking-Sharp! I'm beginning to think I'll just have to read the damn thing...

Re: Wednesday, November 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

31,400 coryat. Instaget final.

"God Bless America" is a tad tougher of a tune than "The Star-Spangled Banner" but "America the Beautiful" is the better built boat of patriotic paeans.

Re: Tuesday, November 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

31,400 coryat. Had a little trouble getting to McDormand, not only from the aforementioned 1996 release/1997 ceremony confusion, but also the supremely disingenuous description of the film as being directed by one brother and produced by the other. Union rules at the time notwithstanding, it was/is ...

Re: Monday, November 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

22,000 coryat. Not a great score but at least it was +4600 on the combined coryat.

Got final primarily from knowledge of Hawthorne's friendship with Franklin Pierce, our only Granite State president. The year and "family cursed" helped confirm.

Good grief, another made up martial art :roll:. Not judging, but seriously - thumbs up (or whatever) is another genre? :?: Unless I've mixed up the shows, Rhea's interview was about her black belt in (blank), which differs from (blank, maybe karate?) by how you block attacks (with the muscles, not ...

There's a Spongebob musical? Disappointed in this trend of derivative musical theater... For better or worse, musical theater has always been derivative ( My Fair Lady, Phantom of the Opera, Oliver!, Annie, Wicked, Cabaret, Les Mis , etc.).

35,200 coryat. Ran In The '90s, Familiar Phrases, College Football, Its Biggest Neighbor, and the four clues shown in Books of Romans. Anatomy is probably my weakest subject, so final was not happening for me. With "A1" being my best write something/anything down guess, thank goodness nothing was ac...

Re: Monday, November 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

35,200 coryat. Ran Sister Cities, Rhymes with Mug, Poker Face, and Mars.

Instaget final. Through the first part of the clue, I briefly considered the Pevensies from the Chronicles of Narnia, but switched to the right answer at "this character."

31,800 coryat. Instaget final. Atari's Tempest and its 1994 update for the Atari Jaguar, Tempest 2000 , are among the greatest video games ever made. The original Tempest arcade cabinets used vector monitors that drew the image on the screen using an electron beam instead of raster scan lines. Only ...

Fun trivia fact that may come up on the show sooner or later: Leonard Maltin played the title character in Groundhog Day . I don't even know what this means. There is no title character... Do you mean Maltin played the groundhog? That's a common misconception. Maltin played the day . It was Dan Ayk...
