Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I know these are reruns so this was probably discussed a while back, but on Friday’s episode, did I miss something or did the contestant actually choose to walk away without using all of her lifelines? No. She got to the $7000 question ("Besides Q, which letter is the only one NOT to appear in any ...

When I saw someone walk without using all her lifelines, I posted about it.
I think that was it. Thanks.

Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have seen the movie and remember the basic concept of that scene, but I had no memory that the word glitch was in it. Even if I had, I would not have known that the astronauts themselves actually originated the word. I actually got this one on the grounds of "What else could it be?," but I never ...

nobody else wondering why they allowed the 1000 wager when he said all in and only had 200? Allowed it? I'd wager Dave doesn't know much about gambling, but I think his intentions (if not his "boss's") were carried out... I disagree. I think they need to take the contestant as literally as possible...

Re: Monday, April 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Structure in Genesis" seemed like negbait for Noah's Ark. "6 1/2-foot tall painting" was sufficient to nip any ambiguity about that in the bud. Not necessarily. The Ark was huge too, and I could see someone making a really big painting of that. FWIW, I shouted out Ark as well, but the reference to...

Asking us to solve and then type "Call of the Wild Blue Yonder" was a bit harsh. My typing stinks; I think I said "Call of HE Wild Blue Yonder" and ran out of time.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

People keep complaining about technical issues with the test. I hope they don't have to start over with new tests! "Technical issues" with the test happen with some people every year, though. User error then? It seems like @jeopardy has been pretty responsive, but these people only have 1 more chan...

Aside from Jackie's current run (and celebrity games), has there ever been a better chance of a contestant herself being the response/subject of a clue in a game she was playing?

The “In God We Trust” clue mentioned the “7th District Court.” There is no such thing, at least on the federal level. I think the writers meant the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is the court that issued the recent ruling.

Re: Thursday, December 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was one ugly J! round as the players were slow to get untracked. Given my previous post in this thread, perhaps I shouldn't make this comment. To me, "untracked" is a negative thing, as in "derailed". Perhaps you meant "on track". Or perhaps the language is changing again without my knowledge ...
