Re: FJs for the 2/12/18 week

I have a question about Friday's final jeopardy. My guess was "Neverland". I am curious as to whether that would have been acceptable or not. My first instinct would be that it would since its more commonly published that way and still refers to the same place. Unfortunately nobody on the show gues...

Re: FJs for the 2/12/18 week

Macarena is only 88% right now? I don't remember anyone else in the thread saying they missed it... You and the accountant are the two on the J! Board that have posted missing the clue. The other three are within their rights to vote without sharing their results. All five of you so far can find co...

I would have taken Anna’s FJ response.
They may have taken the postal abbreviation or the first four letters and a period. As the game went it's only about one overpriced trip vs. another one.

Re: Friday, February 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

If Vinay had solved the FJ! clue then DD3’s wager would have really mattered. Not so much, given the FJ wagers. Oh yeah, right. 25K is just a bit short of Rob's 32K and way below the needed cover up to $35,600. I wonder if Vinay had the right story and turned the Darling family nursery into the inf...

Re: Friday, February 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

They both put "Never Never Land". "Neverland" would have been accepted, of course, but I wonder if one is technically more right than the other? The clue does not cite a specific work and Wikipedia article adds even more variations that would have to fly. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neverland Sin...

Rob: DD1 set the table for you and Alex to have a Draccent-off as I know the host would have followed suit if you had done it. Only one of five clues played in REALITY TV SHOWS?

Re: J! in the Media

I finally got around to doing some fact checking for the 2/6/18 episode of Fresh Off the Boat. The episode takes place in 1998 with a mention of it being Year of the Tiger. Fine, so far. A cover of TV Guide is shown with the Crane brothers and "Frasier's Edge." Okay. Jeopardy! is being watched and t...

Matt did not win although he did get a plug in for Metal Shakespeare Company. Some of the YT comments mention J!, so it worked. 20 seconds of this video were enough for me. Ear/volume alert depending on one's taste.

Why did the Janet Reno clue mention dancing?

I'm on the Hammer side in this case although I took the time to look it up. It seems to be some kind of SNL thing so that explains it being off my radar.
