Re: Wednesday, June 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was surprised by the neg on the Indiana Jones clue. I thought everyone knew the original had been re-branded for franchise purposes. Yeah, that got the DVD forum I frequented back in the day hot under the collar. As if tampering with Star Wars wasn't enough, Lucas then goes after IJ. Technically ...

Re: Thursday, June 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Will looked nonplussed when he was trying to decide on his DD wager and had Meggie whispering at him to “do it.” If he was, I don’t blame him. This is not celebrity J!, this is real money and if someone interfered while I was thinking over an important wager I’d be upset.

Re: Wednesday, June 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

They had to expect "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark". The film has been solicited that way on video for many years. You would be hard-pressed to find any modern video release of it without that title on the box. I was happy when Alex ruled her wrong but I knew a reversal was coming.

Re: Monday, June 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I 100% agree on the BMS for "Hepburn" and "clerk" - I let out an audible gasp each time. Alex said "Katharine Hepburn" fluidly, as if it couldn't be anyone else. Perhaps they fixed it in post to remove the ambiguity for home viewers? If they're gonna accept that, they have to accept my response of ...

Got FJ from "once the largest state in Germany" but hesitated because I didn't know it lasted until 1947 and thought it was weird to "abolish" it.
I got it from the “military power” reference. I also didn’t know it lasted that long.

No BMS on Hepburn? Or clerk?

Re: Friday, May 29, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm okay in history, but really not too good in presidential trivia, so I was nervous. Add in geography, and you'd think I was sunk for FJ!. Nope! I vaguely remember W's library opening and there's no way it wouldn't be in Texas. Daddy HW was probably in Texas too. Add in LBJ, and I had a very good...

“Admiral” Perry should not have been accepted.

LOL at the science teacher’s wagering on the science DD and then getting it wrong. Her students may have fun with that.

When Alex says all responses in a category will start with “bottle,” and you give a response that starts with something else, you should be ruled incorrect.

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

On another note, I wonder if there are others who have gotten away with something like this undetected. Maybe we just know about Barbara Lowe and Jeff Kirby because they didn't try very hard not to get caught. I’d be surprised if there are more, especially in the internet/social media era. Weren’t ...

Only Harrison song I could name is "While My Guitar..." but I might not be a valid sample size. That would be my favorite. But I also knew Something was one of his.

Nope, true. But in fairness I’m not reading it very faithfully, it’s in my car and I read it when I’m stuck waiting for someone in a parking lot.

Re: Tuesday, March 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'll be the first to grouse that "Brass in Pocket" isn't followed by a parenthetical "(I'm Special)" on any release of the first Pretenders album that I've ever seen. Seconded. With all of the famous rock songs that use parentheticals in their titles, they could easily have used one where this wasn...

Re: Tuesday, February 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't like this either. Kind of like when they accept "the Mooch" as a correct response. Accepting nicknames just invites controversy. I agree as he may not have known his actual name. (Sully could be short for Sullivan). I wonder if they would take Ike for Eisenhower. Initialisms are accepted w...
