Re: Thursday, April 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Something else I find interesting -- he holds the buzzer down, so you're not seeing what he's doing with it. You can, however, watch the other contestants frantically and futilely trying to ring in.

But... it literally was a Lousy question...
Yes, I did catch that. It was more aimed at calling an idea stupid. The Louse just intervened.

Re: Thursday, April 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Maybe it'll be such a letdown when winning totals revert to the mean that they'll double clue values again. Or maybe they'll be so scared of another James that won't even think about it. Double James' money, and you're talking serious bucks, even for a TV show. Count me as another who got totally d...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

The contestant after him seems to have gotten so caught up in ruling out a choice that she forgot that the question was asking for the one "not" of the choices. It was very unfortunate, especially with her fiancé +1 by her side immediately knowing she made a mistake when "final answer" had already ...

TPTB decided that they don't want the show to be broken, so next week they will be bringing in a former contestant with even better buzzer skills ... Watson. Ooh, sorry, James.

Re: Tuesday, April 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interesting to me that you say you're "not enjoying the bloodbath." I have been as much in awe of Jason 's run as anyone, but I share the feeling. After a while "dominance" is too mild a word. He starts to look like the New England Patriots playing against (pick you local high school football team)...

That wasn't very sportsmanlike of either Adam or James.
Snicker aside, I'm guessing the pace of the game was such that they probably didn't even notice at the time that they were doing that. You're up there, and you want to get right answers and that's pretty much your focus.

When he was on J! I have a vague recollection of him doing an "all in" wager on a Daily Double and Alex not recognizing what that term meant.
Alex seems to have a handle on it nowadays.

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

One final thought before bed: not seeing him play, I didn't know HOW James won that much cash. While wagering on FJ, I took an uncomfortably long time in a double-lock game to make my wager. Why? Because I thought, "Is he betting it all? Is he betting within one dollar of my score? He IS a gambler....

Ouch, Barbara. I have to admit, I probably would have bitten on that one as well, but I might have burned another lifeline in the process.

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

First, sorry for rocking back and forth. I know people will find it annoying, but I'm a kinetic person. I initially wrote, "What is Iwo Jima?" then scrunched the rest of the words on there. Far too easy for FJ. I'm happy with how I did considering I hadn't seen James play. It's possible facing a re...

Re: Confetti Discussion

Well, Confetti differs from the other "quiz for money on your phone apps" by using an existing platform. I was able to go to Confetti's page and see a list of episodes back to October 15. All the questions and payouts can be gleaned from those videos. Yeah, but I was looking for a handy dandy site ...

Technically, mine is Saturday since it airs at 1:00 AM in the Washington market.
Not anymore. It moved to 2pm around January, I believe.
What makes you say that? According to their schedule, General Hospital is on then, and WWTBAM is still on at 1:00 and 1:30 AM.
