Re: Friday, January 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Fire lookout is another good one for the J! occupation hall of fame. Lee should have been looking out for Rachel as she outplayed him to take the title. Lee has many places in the game to look back on when he could have turned the tables. Both of the $1200 clues above the $1600 slot DDs were TS clue...

Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The 1/18 episode of Young Sheldon had the family getting a Tandy 1000 SL with Intel 8086, 8 MHz, & 5.25" drive. There was a quick montage of each family member (including Meemaw speaking into the mouse) using the computer in various ways. Missy was playing this (while claiming to be doing her homewo...

Re: Thursday, January 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Jack-Tar (6) in CROSSWORD CLUES “S” was an 0/4 (TS + me) that cost me a run of the category as I only knew the name as a local hotel back in the day and from the Hackman movie The Conversation . Marilyn cost Lee a lot of money with her failing to solve DD3. Ryan failing to solve DD2 also cost Lee th...

Re: Friday, December 22, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I just stumbled on this article from August about a J! audition that mentions Donna. http://www.telegraphherald.com/ap/entertainment/article_e2b84dcb-bb51-530d-98bd-33bb30840ce5.html The relevant portion: Donna Brown, of Seattle, told Speak that her mother had appeared on “Sale of the Century” when...

Re: Wednesday, January 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Alex opened the show by invoking the name Ken Jennings in association with Gilbert’s kids getting a cut of the winnings. Bye champ. Lee ran PRESIDENTIAL BURIAL PLACES & A BANNER YEAR for a smooth $9000 added to his score. If the show was looking for 15 teachers for its Teacher Tournament then I have...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Tuesday, January 30th is the State of the Union with the Democratic response given by: TBD

That also means J! won't be airing at 7 in the West. I would not bet on a full airing by 7:30 either PT.

Yesterday Alex noticed a Steve Tyler connection with the challenger names and mentioned a possible performance without naming Aerosmith. Today had a Scandal one with David Rosen the character played by Joshua (2x J! celeb player) Malina and Olivia the main character on the show.

Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

For the expectation of the FJ! clue going 3/3 I was curious how THE THEATER might influence that prediction. My instinct was that kind of category will more often than not have a miss and I took a quick spin in the Archive for any FJ! categories with Theater or Theatre. The results: M=Male & F=Femal...

Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Nice work by young Sheldon in the SCIENCE category. The players did not save the category until the end so that allowed the J! round to end early. Of course the unfinished category just had to be the fun one with the albums. The show advertised a "We Asked Iain Armitage", but I did not find it on th...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

On the Fleming episode linked in another thread the board values were: $10, 20, 30, 40 & 50 for the J! round and $20, 40, 60, 80 & 100 for the DJ round The contestant won with $700 What does that winning amount come to in 2018 J! $? Start think music and 30 seconds. . . . I think I smell wood burning.

Gilbert mentioned that his kids get a 1% cut of his winnings. That chunk of change is growing by the day. I would have made $2 if I had that deal in place when my dad was on Name That Tune . Alex was 0/2 on his Daily Doubles while a solve on either one may have been enough to win the game. If he kee...

First of all, how did a bunch of people in show business in Los Angeles manage to screw that one up? And second, how did it come to their attention?
