Re: Set with the lights off

I remember being there when they turned the backdrop lights off (or whatever it is that is projecting all that color) and just being SHOCKED. It was like stepping back into Dorothy's house after returning on the yellow brick road. It's SOOOOO weird to see it like that, and I had no idea that the cur...

Re: Friday, April 4, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

When I was Katniss, Colby was Haymitch (and Keith was Peeta) -- we were all from the same district (TOC class) and Colby was the former winner. Of the three of us in real life, however, I'm the likeliest to be blonde and drunk. Make of that what you will. I nominate Erin McLean for our Prim -- she w...

Re: Friday, April 4, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm reading this at our state home school convention meeting. I had to put my hand over my mouth so I wouldn't laugh out loud. So...Roger reminds me of Beetee, and Ken is...? Ken and Brad are the Careers. Brutus and Gloss, or Brutus and Enobaria. If Dan is Katniss, Roger can be Peeta since they are...

Dr. J, the mockingjay pin has arrived "safe and sound" (see what I did there.) Thanks for being so fun and generous. Dan's next chat segment will be him painting a picture of you surrounded by flowers on the studio floor. This is exactly what my hubs and I were talking about this morning. We gave D...

Re: Friday, April 4, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Did ya notice my Mockingjay pin bringing Dan luck? Is there a story behind that? I was wondering when I saw that on TV, whether it was just because he liked the books or if there was an inside joke or some backstory there. Of course there's a story... :). While watching Catching Fire, I noticed som...

Re: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm just speculating, but the blunder wasn't at the clue itself but during the introduction of the category when Alex mistakenly said that all of the correct responses contained "self" instead of "self-e". Had all of the contestants gotten through the category unscathed, my guess is that Alex would...

Re: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Maybe someone will jump in and correct me, but sitting in Contestant Row, I don't remember anyone getting it. We were blown away. I thought it was a flower. I never put that book in the 1940s. It was an amazing get, especially given the drama of the time she took. She's a quiet killer, that Larissa.

Re: for Survivor talk

So much stupidity for a "smart" person. I couldn't believe the unnecessary egotism on display -- it's ONE vote...let the princess have what she wants for ONE vote, then proceed! That's going to be an awkward camp going forward.

Not any kind of results spoiler, but for those of you who skip the interviews and then immediately delete the game from your DVR, the Wednesday game may be a good time to slow down and hear the chats. The editor may do a lot of work or none. Either way that segment will be up for discussion. Specul...

She has a fantastic Kirsten Vangsness vibe. Very geek chic. This comparison was popping up on Twitter last night, and as I don't watch Criminal Minds, I wasn't familiar with her. But once you wear oversized glasses, apparently the comparisons begin! For the record, I had not planned on wearing glas...

I totally forgot about the stoppage of play! We were turned around, and I wanted to jaw with a Roger, hoping it might throw off his game. Roger is one of those guys like Colby who comes off to certain watchers as smug or arrogant, and I was fully prepared not to like him. Well, what a delight to dis...

Weighing in, so here goes. My surname is Northern German (and unusual). I wrote SBA immediately, but was worried that it was too easy. Stanton, a personal hero of mine, was the other choice, but I knew she died before SBA, and was 90% sure that was her quote. So I kept it. As for the DD, for me that...
