Re: Wednesday, January 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In the 2 of 3 Are Vowels category, does Rachel appear to say "ill"? I assume the correct answer is ail, as ill doesn't fit the category, but I have listened a few times and just can't hear it. I heard "ail" which is the correct response. Andy's Thoughts from this posting: https://thejeopardyfan.com...

You could also start by having officials who aren't taking bathroom breaks in the middle of plays or are blind.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

The heavy metal questions keep coming on RnR. I officially don't care about this one anymore.

NEVER GONNA GIVE U UP $1000: Type of plant seen here, familiar to an infant Moses (Julie: What are rushes?) It seemed to me this was one of those instances where the other two contestants were not allowed to rebound because Alex possibly called Julie's response correct, then was overruled, and an e...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Great job, Donnie. He had a pretty easy stack, until they ... weren't. The math was definitely there to take a guess. I was leaning Spice Girls, but once he 50/50ed, I was about 80% confident that if they were associated with Woodstock, I'd have heard their names sometime (and I looked it up ... the...

Re: Request for information regarding an upcoming episode (POTENTIAL SPOILERS)

From my admittedly limited knowledge, I have to strongly believe it was a random accident and that should be the end of it on here.

Maybe it's my intensified interest in WWTBAM, but this was an instaget. I can see why people might not have gotten it, but the TS surprised me.

"Luncheon on the Grass" a $50,000 question!?!?! They're joking right?
Like you I did not need choices.
Instaget. Though I may have confused it with The Boating Party.

Am I crazy, or did Addie talk about that bolt during her interview on Jeopardy 3 years ago?

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Congrats to jeff6286 on winning the Tolls 1DS! I coulda been a contender (top 15) had I not second guessed myself on Ft. Lee (that still looks NOTHING like the GW Bridge in my NSHO) and totally misjudged the difficulty of Q12. TBH, I'm still not sure how only 27% of the entrants could get the toll ...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I hate to criticize too much, and I have enjoyed the Rock and Roll ML overall, but does it seem like it's been a little too metal focused to anyone else? Yes. Plus there should never be a question in there that has a 2% get rate. And I, too, am reluctant to criticize since these are hard to do. I d...

For FJ I went with Robert Indiana, who is known for a sculpture with the word "love" spelled out. Negbait!
He lived on the island where my daughter lives. His house is huge, and right on the main street, but it's really fallen into disrepair. It's sad.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

A whopping 2% for John Kalodner in the RnR ML. Whoever he may be. And that was my industry and my timeframe. And my Ozzy Osbourne MCWA guess scored higher than the actual answer(s).

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Great job, Mara! And nice save, Idris! Good to have boardies team up like that. Thank goodness you didn't end up as one of those "Well, I'm just going to go ahead an guess" types. $25k is a lot to give up. I thought Bob's favorite was a quokka. Pudu was an instaget, though. I was shaky on Mad Max, b...

Well, it's not like anyone was around to make fun of him.

Was is just me, or were the bottom row clues really easy tonight?

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

(That particular question was also an example, to me, of anti-TOM, where the only real pertinent part of the question was "Wisconsin", and all the stuff about Ireland led a lot of people away from the answer.) As explained in the recap thread, the author included the Irish radio station nugget beca...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I hate to gripe about the RnR ML, but seriously, 3 questions with get rates 16% and under? I know there's a thin line between making it too easy and too hard, but that's kinda making it not very fun to participate in.
