Re: Monday, June 8, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can't say I've heard of Steve Winwood or the song associated with him. You play the organ, right? Steve Winwood is one of the greatest organists in rock - as well as being one of the best blue-eyed soul singers in rock, and a crackerjack guitarist too. Check out his classic organ and vocal parts on...

Re: FJs for the 6/8/20 week

I checked the 190 box, but forgot about preemptions. I think I only had to play 1 or 2 partially off the archive. Negged by both Lister and Angelou. I thought of Darwin but got fooled by "mould", and felt Angelou was wrong but couldn't think of another Oprah author in time. I didn't get "Breathing T...

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

So now we are set for the next five weeks. This is really going to freak people out who aren’t fanatics like us. No announcement was given and now we will have three weeks of random episodes. I wonder what they have planned after the TOC. I've heard that they've done some Zoom interviews with the T...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

This is a more difficult version of a previous FJ! that went 0/2, but is best solved NOT using Alex's comment in the FJ! game. http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=4938 I SAID NO MORE MATH!

I have seen one of those, but never knew it was called a "multiplication table". When I was learning my multiplication tables, I literally had a multiplication table.

Re: Friday, June 12, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I put down the wrong answer for FJ! knowing it was wrong because the death date seemed much longer ago. I figured with time having no meaning whatsoever anymore, that maybe it was early 2019 and I was just wonky. Nope. I'll admit that I didn't know the right answer had died, but had I known, I would...

I knew Caesar was stabbed a lot, but the number 23 didn't ring a bell. I associate him more closely with the numbers 3 and 15 (or, III and XV.) But given that I stayed up late last night watching Coriolanus, my brain was primed for Shakespeare, so this was a fairly quick get. Romans seemed to be sci...

Re: A Retro Jeopardy! Idea

I've always thought a cool thing to do, particularly in rerun season or for Weekend Jeopardy!, would be to run some of the relatively older episodes. If anything, those episodes would be MORE interesting than, say, episodes from just a year ago. I'm likely to remember a clue from last September, but...

Put me down with the Lister crowd for FJ!...and even worse, I thought of Darwin first. The year was right for the end of Darwin's life, but my problem was "vegetable mould". Having literally thrown out some bread today because of mold, I was thinking small biological organisms, and perhaps their era...

Anyone know if this show was filmed on March 17, St. Patrick's Day? I ask because the returning champ and the contestant in the middle were both wearing Kelly green. The middle lady was even wearing a green ribbon around her neck. It didn't bring them luck, though. Nope, March 17 was definitely pos...

Meh, I'm not good with the birthplaces of presidents.

The coin flip isn't exactly a coin flip. Get it right, and you net +x. Get it wrong, and one opponent nets +2x (your neg plus their correct response) for responding with the only other option, while the other opponent nets +x (not including their original incorrect response, which is already in the...

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

I can give you a bit of a pass on Steve Winwood's song, but Steve Winwood himself is famous for his association with Eric Clapton - they were in Traffic together. They were in Blind Faith together; Clapton was never a member of Traffic. Oops, my bad....thanks for adding that bit to my memory bank!

Precalled "Old Time Rock and Roll" in "Rock and/or Roll Songs". Can't say I've heard of Steve Winwood or the song associated with him. Nina is wrong, and no one wants to take the coinflip on Pinta/Santa Maria? No guess on FJ! There were lots and lots and lots and lots of famous films in 1939 and I ...

Rob: If you are reading this can you confirm or deny that you have recorded some kind of at-home message that could play to open and/or close the show ? That would be one way for me to check in on the games is if the champs are adding something like KJ did for his #1 and #75 re-airings. Otherwise, ...

Re: Monday, June 8, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ!, but only based on some vague estimates of the date. Working backwards, MLK was fairly young when he was assassinated in 1968, and I put him at around 40. I was only a year off. Subtracting 30 gives 1938, so it's a movie in the late 30s. Generally, when it's a FJ! clue, they want headslapp...
