Re: Friday, December 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So if you'd been on Friday's episode and lost because someone's "McDonald's" response was ruled correct, would you make a stink?

I think Sonic still has carhops, but it's definitely a baby boomer's wheelhouse type of question.

If you know what a "carhop" is, it's a layup.

Re: Thursday, December 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was struggling to come up with the correct response in FJ, and then realized there really weren't too many options when it came to women authors in the 40s who would know (or even care much) about whether or not the Russians were engaged in propaganda efforts.

Re: Friday, December 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I went for the obvious (and correct) answer, but after mulling it over a bit, realized that Austria (Schwarzenegger) was a possible alternative. There is a Wikipedia list article on Austrian movie stars , but not one on Monegasque movie stars. That's a list of "film actors," and as Peter O'Toole wo...

Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not in love with this pure trivia, no-TOM Final. It's basically "pick a non-traditional Christmas song". Not sure what prevents it from being "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" or "Silver Bells" or "Frosty The Snowman" or "Holly Jolly Christmas" or a variety of others. A first edition reading shows th...

The "there" in the clue could just as easily apply to the hotel as to a piece of furniture in it, I think.

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was surprised (and horrified) to realize I remembered "Alexis" from Dynasty but was struggling with the last name, and could only come up with "Colby"...which technically, was correct too.

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Any reason I should know that German salad is made from potatoes? I also don't like that an Irishman's novel was the response in the category CLASSIC BRITISH NOVELS (notwithstanding the novel's having been written and first published in Britain) but since neither losing player even named a British ...

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought the clue was pointing at a castle. Thought of both Dracula and Frankenstein. Considered Shelley vs Stoker and indeed thought Mary was much more clearly British. I haven't read the book, so I'm not sure if Victor Frankenstein lived in a castle. But there is an actual Frankenstein Castle th...

Seemed unnecessarily vague for an FJ clue, maybe they thought "battlements" would steer people in the right direction?

Re: Wednesday, November 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

what is so great about the quote "plastics"? I agree that this quote doesn't have quite the zing of "we don't need no stinking badges" or "I don't think we're in Kansas any more" or "what we have here is failure to communicate" or many others. But AFI chose it. At the risk of sounding pedantic, non...

Fairly easy FJ for a film buff...for the casual fan, I imagine it could be brutal.

Re: Monday, November 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm guessing that if you stopped people on the street and asked them to name five tech companies, you'd be waiting a long time before you heard someone say "uber."

Re: Tuesday, November 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm surprised it took me twenty seconds or so to get the FJ...it seems obvious in retrospect. How many other famous phrases were associated with FDR, after all? Also surprised that it was a triple stumper.

Re: Monday, November 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Any three-time champ on this show deserves respect, but you have to admit, it takes a special kind of talent to blow that FJ. Only Elise can confirm it, but in the past I have seen contestant comments that in such a situation they recognize that on an "easy" FJ! clue their only hope was that it was...

It was all for naught, but nice job of FJ wagering by Joyee.
