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 ...

I have heard of the medley relay in swimming, but what is it in track?

Re: Thursday, October 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FWIW, I pronounce the L in all of those words except for Calf. Also FWIW, at times I can be insufferably pedantic. Me too, on both counts. I also had a problem with saying that "Loki" and "low-key" are homonyms. I suppose one could emphasize the first syllable in "low-key" to make the clue work, bu...

Re: Monday, October 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Black and Tan" cost me the run in "Black", swift (can't say I've heard of it) in Roost-ers, and "Woman Crush Wednesday" (dafuq) in Abbrev. Here's a helpful tip: never order a "Black and Tan" in an Irish pub. If the bartender is a true Irishman you will get a harsh glare at the very least. Order a ...

Re: Tuesday, October 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tombaugh meant nothing to me. The clue initially left me blank; I was trying to connect something in the solar system to Norse mythology and kept coming up empty. First wrote down "moon" just to have something and then at the last possible moment said "aw, heck" and shifted gears correctly on the b...

Re: Monday, October 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I am proud of the fact I only got "Empire Strikes Back" in the Star Wars category. Seriously? An entire category on a mediocre sci-fi franchise that peaked with Episode IV (the origional) and has regressed consistently since? Low hanging troll bait. We've all got things we don't like in pop culture...

I got Guillotin without the E. :geek: I didn’t (I said Robespierre) but I dislike the “executive decision” to accept a response that is 100% wrong. Well, I guarantee that there would have been an uproar if they didn't take all 3 answers as being correct. I'd say that without the executive decision,...

8. A GAME FROM ATARI
Identify one of these classic Atari video games
I don't think all of these were made by Atari. For example, I believe Donkey Kong was Nintendo.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Today I got THE CALL! In case this is pertinent: There are 0 players in J! Archive billed as being from Newfoundland. Assuming you're living there when you tape, you'll be the first to actually be introduced as from Newfoundland. And, of course, will be announced as from "Newfoundland, Canada," as ...

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Magna Carta for 1620 was a particularly bad guess. Kept confusing landlocked states for non-perimeter states, talked myself out of Arizona and the Dakotas because of that. Also fell for Ohio. FJ was an instaget. It seemed that he knew that was wrong but just said it because you should always say so...

Re: Thursday, May 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Why on earth would anyone try to give the full "Dr. Strangelove" title? That is just begging for trouble. The only thing I can think of is maybe he had the recent "Sgt. Pepper" thing on the brain and thought he needed to be thorough. But I don't think the judges are that cruel.

I could have done without AT's condescending "you even pronounced it correctly" on the "Gerry" clue. You could tell he was just waiting for her to pronounce it with a soft "G" so he could correct her.

an interesting tidbit about that FJ question...

They reviewed it that day and decided that asking us to writ...

I hated the "perfect" category and the chiding reminder by Alex. It's not fair to ask contestants to go against their Jeopardy instincts and change the phrasing of their responses just to satisfy a gimmick category. At least they didn't penalize for it.

Re: Ties on Jeopardy! RIP

I know that L.A. traffic is horrible, but why would you need lodging in Culver City if you live only 40 miles away? I guess if the taping were first thing in the morning you'd want to be close to the studio, but if I could sleep in my own bed the night before a taping, I would want to. I'm not sure...
