I was so upset Nancy Pelosi was on I will boycott the show for six weeks.
is she that bad? had never heard of her before
I think you're missing the joke here. It's a joke about how the show will be in reruns for the next six weeks.

I don't see how "Allemagne" is a classical music term. Google and Wikipedia are of no help. Explain?
It's "allemande".
Ah, that explains it. That was the only NHOI in the category, and I found it far more obscure then "basso profundo".

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

One time they asked for the person for whom the capital of Nevada was named. In the $200 box. Just "Carson" got a BMS. The contestant fell silent and the other two failed to ring in. One of the most ridiculous BMSes up there IMO. Totally disagree. When they ask who Carson City was named after, it's...

Re: Thursday, July 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As a senator, Thurmond was not a private citizen. And he died in 2003. And the wrong Carolina, too. Still, my brain locked onto "in the Capitol? Must be a politician" and I figured Strom had to be right. I couldn't figure out what "private citizen" meant in this context, and even if I had, I think ...

Re: Thursday, July 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

These were some very tough boards IMO. Recognized nothing in the Gal Gadot category. She has only two other hits in the Archive. Any reason why knowing that she's Israeli is $200 box material? I thought TV for $400 was huge negbait for Survivor. I knew Billy Graham died recently, but "Capitol" had m...

Re: How does Alex Know When The SJ/DJ Rounds Are Almost Over?

It does seem like it's not foolproof. I've seen episodes where he does the LTAM and the round ended only one clue later, episodes where he doesn't LTAM and they leave clues on the board anyway, and even an episode where he accidentally LTAM'd twice.

Re: Wednesday, July 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I should've known at least some of the Central American capitals because of the Central American Capitals category in this game where no one even managed to ring in for the entire category. While it is a short list to remember at only seve nentries, I would also say it's lower priority in general, s...

Not in the context of "He's at #4 this week, and headed straight to #1".
You literally can not go straight to #1 if you have stopped at #4 first.
Songs have to ascend the charts usually. A song can go from #4 "straight" to #1 if it makes the 4-1 jump in one week.

Re: Wednesday, July 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The category title “ Straight to #1” means (at least to my ear) that it had to hit #1 its first week out. Chesnutt didn’t get there until its 14th week on the charts. While all of the songs in the category did indeed debut at #1 on the Hot 100 (and TIL the Michael Jackson song in the category was t...

Lazy me watchded it early on Reddit. I wonder what they would've done if someone had said "Mark Chesnutt" on the "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" clue? Alex didn't say it absolutely had to be a Hot 100 peak, and Chesnutt's version was also released in 1998 and was a #1 hit on Hot Country Singles & Tr...

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Why didn't just "mastiff" get the BMS on "bull mastiff", if "helmet" got a BMS to "batting helmet"? The clue specifically said "this dog cross-breed " and showed a picture of the breed in question, so "mastiff" was wrong. It would be like BMSing "poodle" on a clue where the correct response was "la...

4/5 in four categories in J!: missed the steak knives quote (Glengarry Glen Ross rings no bells for me at all), lichen, Galatians (got snagged on "Gallicians"), and interest (didn't quite seem to fit). It was very hard for me to resist adding "Hawley-Smoot" on "FF" for $800. Why didn't just "mastiff...

Have we ever had a FJ question poll at 100%? Not to my knowledge. I know I was literally the only person who kept this FJ! from polling 100% and what did you come up with for that answer? I had no guess whatsoever. The only thing that made sense to me was maybe some star had gone supernova or somet...
