Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Salt-N-Pepa have been interesting to watch during this celebrity week. They're not great at talking things out, but Pepa's got good instincts (Salt seems to hold back a bit, which talking out could solve; she stays Pepa's hand and Pepa just keeps saying "I really think it's x" with no further explan...

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

What might have been for Prairie. She was very good. Alas, missing the "wandered" TOM on DD1 put her in too deep a hole to climb out of. And besides "wandered," there was also the word "muse" (to guide one towards Greek epics). (And then the DJ round put salt in the wound by explicitly asking about...

I got all of the Star Wars ones right, but not by name -- I kept citing "Episode IV." etc. since I couldn't come up with the names fast enough. Would that have passed in Culver City or not?
That's all right by me.

I'm not sure I would have gotten it anyway, but being able to connect My Fair Lady to a bridge was fatal to my chances of solving on Thursday.

Re: Wednesday, October 10, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Forget about wristwatches or the correct tense of nonsense words...the most controversial thing on this episode was Alex T. saying that Kurt Vonnegut is "not funny." I'm assuming he hasn't read KV in a long time...BTW, Alex S. contradicted our host ( I find him funny often, yeah ) and lived to see ...

Re: Thursday, October 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I found a way to make My Fair Lady make sense: the title comes from the song "London Bridge." In retrospect the setting of the painting was too pastoral for London (and it didn't look like Arizona either), but once I had connected L&L to a bridge I'd gotten where I wanted to go.

Did anyone else respond to the Jabberwocky clue with "outgribe" for pedantry's sake, since "outgrabe" is the past tense?

I said Shackleford instead of Shackleton. D'oh!
Maybe you're just a little Rusty at solving clues like this.....
I thought about adding that "d'oh" was incongruous with "Shackleford."

Re: FJs for the 10/1/18 week

I remembered a pizza commercial advertising the "Meatzza Trio," which I can even remember was prosciutto, sausage, and pepperoni, but couldn't remember whose commercial it was; the in-your-face-ness of my memory of the commercial swung me more to Pizza Hut. I just looked up the commercial. First, i...

Re: FJs for the 10/1/18 week

Was wrong with Pizza Hut on the MeatZZa. Given that's currently at 60%, I think it's safe to call that a massively negbaity clue. I'm not seeing it as anything worse than a coinflip between Pizza Hut and Domino's. More than one person said they guessed Little Caesars, so bump it down to 1 in 3. You...

Re: Monday, October 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That General Hospital category was inexcusably asinine, and because he went back to it while legitimate clues remained on the board, I'm rooting against Doug. Why? Given that it's a sponsored clue in the first round, you know they're going to use all five questions, and if it goes over, they'll jus...

Does anyone here actually remember him from J! S1? (Once MarkBarrett said we'd have a champ from then on WWTBAM, I went to the site to watch their "this week" video, in which only a caption mentioned his name at all, and that was just his first name.

Re: Reretaken Down

Many years ago, Jeopardy!'s website had a FAQ section where a bunch of people asked questions about Alex in video form. One of them was some celeb (I forget who) asking "Alex Trebek -- is he always so darn serious? He scares me." Followed by a montage of Alex doing goofy things, like coming out on ...

Re: Wednesday, October 3, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Doug mentioned on Reddit that he initially sang "Sweet Caroline," but was made to record the response in a normal speaking voice during the commercial break - seems it would have cost the show about $10,000 to license the relevant content. I had a suspicion that happened. Both he and Alex seemed to...

It's not often you see a show with two $100,000 questions and a $0 winner.
