Re: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well, you can't dispute it based on the length criterion, but I'd be curious what people think about the 'most filmed' part. There's enough Hamlets that MST3K even spoofed one. (It's the full bit so...gray area, but you get four versions spotted for you before the first door sequence) https://www.y...

I went to Antarctica 🇦🇶 4 years ago and I got to see every species of penguins except for emperors. Sweet stuff.

Re: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Swing and a miss with R&J. I had no idea there were any film versions of Hamlet. Why do I even bother anymore? Members of this forum have been saying that for at least 10 years. We need a like button!!!! As Dbear wrote above, I had to decide between Hamlet & MacBeth. R&J wasn’t even on my radar, no...

Re: Monday, April 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had Australia 🇦🇺 instantly as I’ve been to Sydney’s Olympic center & I've heard of Melbourne’s Olympics. I spent the next 29 seconds trying to come up with #2 but failed. Good game by the returning champ. Footballer did better than last week so that’s nice.

I wouldn’t call Montevideo “overthinking” it. But South America is tougher than Europe and Africa for most people so who knows.

Re: Reretaken Down

I’ve returned to Sporcle after a year or so away and the ads are insane. I mostly play on my phone so I’ve been thinking of getting the app which might reduce or eliminate the ads.

Re: Thursday, April 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I’ve been to Montevideo so I chortled when I saw that response. As others have noted, she had a couple of other egregious mistakes. I spent quite a bit of time in BA so I knew that was a correct response. It’s a bit like LA in that its expansiveness. Montevideo is pleasant but not too many big build...

Was thinking of Lizzy Borden's crime, wrote down Carrie Nation instead. Grrrr.

Carry Nation also used an axe so that might have caused the mistake. Her crimes were a bit later and further west.

Easy FJ. What a dick to point out Lizzy instead of Lizzie. The somnolence-inducing Rodgers seems bored by contestants’ stories. Or maybe it’s nerves.

Well, that was dull. Even couric was better. Great game by the new champ although I was rooting for the Celtic musician. Easy FJ but I’m glad I immediately thought of Rogers and forgot about Regis and Donahue.

Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

I thought he did pretty well. It’s clear that he and Coric aren’t there for the job permanently. I think jennings wants it but I’m hoping he doesn’t get it since he’s annoying. Brook Burns or Mike Richards for the job. I’m not expecting much from next week’s lunkhead.

Easy FJ for this Bronx-born man. A good game with a weak ending. Maybe these (mostly) California contestants need West Coast questions.

Whenever I get all 5 FJs I usually miss one of the following three questions and I usually get all three if I miss an FJ or two. For Friday I had to decide between Muir & (Kit) Carson and luckily I went with Muir.

Relax, you were only off by 178 years! Frankenstein was an easy FJ. There was one uncomfortable stretch of the game with no correct answers but it was a good game otherwise.

Tough FJ for me because I forgot that 1932 was El Lay Olympics. I knew 1984 & I should’ve remembered 1932 from Unbroken but I settled on 1948. Another one & done champ.

Easy FJ. I was surprised only one person knew it. Good game overall, the Warhol miss notwithstanding. Dr. Oz seemed nervous in the beginning but he was fine overall.
