Re: Wednesday, November 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Love that the Ryan Gosling doppelgänger got the Ryan Gosling Clue! Speaking of lookalikes, anyone else think Henry was the spitting image of Oscar Wilde? These past few shows, I've wondered at least once who he looked like, since I felt he resembled someone I couldn't think of. Seeing your comment ...

Re: Monday, November 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I recognize "bill and coo" as old-fashioned, but familiar enough. (Google Ngram suggests it was coined about 1850 and reached its historical peak in 1860...) I would have guessed Mass. for Clark if it was a DD, but I might have been thinking of the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown. As far as I ca...

I didn't even use the "practical" part: that just threw me off track for a bit. Musical + 1981 debut + West End? What else could it be? Practical Suburban Strains , The Practical Best Little Whorehouse In Texas , Practical I'm Getting My Act Together And Taking It On The Road , Practical Ipi Tombi ...

SILENT "L" would have Kellie Pickler disagreeing with one of the responses as she always said the "L" in the fish name. As soon as that category was introduced I knew there would be at least one word where I pronounce the L. There were two (calm, which I can't imagine any other way, and salmon). It...

Re: Thursday, November 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't like the wording of the clue for which the correct response was "wastes". Mercury and asbestos are not wastes, per se. I would have been happier with the clue if it had ended, "...these, which might contain asbestos or mercury". That's a good point. For me the difficulty was more simple, a...

BTW, Andy’s outfit tonight put me in mind of Harvey Keitel in some film role, but I can’t place it. It does seem like a Harvey Keitel look, doesn't it? I can't place it either. It's not the dinner jacket and bow tie of Pulp Fiction. And it's not the white shirt and black tie of Reservoir Dogs. But ...

It's in the current events thread, but be ready for The Queen's Gambit as it a certainty to appear later this season. Not to mention the new season of The Crown with Olivia Colman repeating as the queen and Gillian Anderson as Maggie Thatcher... I've watched 3 of 5 of those shows (Killing Eve has s...

Re: Tuesday, November 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is it overly pedantic of me to point out that in "Eponymous Elements $800" Andy (slightly, not enough to make his response wrong) mispronounced philosopher George's name? The city (and the element) is "BERK-", but the philosopher is "BARK-". Wikipedia's article on George Berkeley says that the Brit...

That was a Pavlov neg for me as I blurted The Twilight Zone for "Sci-fi" and "1960s series". As I wa...

No way I was transcribing those video clues and I took the shortcut with useless mp4 links. It wasn't so bad--there were only three clues and they were captioned--BUT!--but!--the Tubman clue was not captioned correctly and I cannot make out exactly what she was saying. The CC transcriber went with ...

Yes, that's what he said, accent on syllable 2.

Re: Tuesday, November 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Also, that first clue tonight was odd. It seemed more a statement than a clue. Rather than espresso, a South American beverage made with leaves is frothed with milk Why not "this South American"? That would pin the answer to just being maté. None of the clues in this category used the "this [noun]"...

No, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune is going to be an ABC network series. Jeopardy! and regular Wheel are syndicated.
Besides, lining up 3 celebrity per show for weeks wouldn't be easier than finding a host, who may have already been chosen.
