Re: FJs for the 12/9/13 week

:( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: Monday I had no clue. I considered Obama, thinking perhaps Hawaiian, but "was" made it seem unlikely. Guessed Millard Filmore. Never read nor seen Life of Pi , but I was aware of it and thought it would make a good Hail Mary guess. Friday al...

Re: FJs for the 12/2/13 week

:( :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :( :( :( :( Monday was hopeless; I couldn't associate the songs with the original artists, never heard of Wilson Phillips, and didn't know the connection between the two. Wednesday Macau didn't come to mind and so I guessed Hong Kong, although I was fairly sure it had a sho...

Re: Thursday, December 5, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Looked like I was going to miss the show today due to Obama's speech on Mandela, but it cut in just before the J! round category reveal. Also saw no way to figure out Eastwood at Medals for $400 There was some variation of the phrase "make my day" (from Sudden Impact ), and also a reference to Eastw...

Re: Monday, December 2, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Was astromech ever mentioned in the actual films? Because I've seen them several times over several decades (well parts 4, 5 and 6 at least - the others just once) and it's not even remotely familiar. The closest that comes to mind for me is when a battle droid called Artoo a "stupid little astro d...

Fleming, WITSEC, and Oregon were instagets. Thursday, "aren't sure things turned out that way" led me to...

There was a question tonight - November 7, 2013 - regarding a painting which showed Mary crushing the snake.....I only caught a glimpse of the painting, am sorry that I had been distracted. But I did hear the answer which was given as "Immaculate Conception". I don't think this can be correct, as t...

Never seen Groundhog Day; was thinking action movie, which got me Last Action Hero.

Incorrect guesses discarded: Edmond Dantes, Emily Dickinson (before I remembered the category, obviously), Jane Grey, Panama and Paraguay.

Never heard of Wallenberg, Hunley. I didn't even have a say-anything guess for either.

I think I've been to Bisbee, but it didn't click until the answer was read.

Austin/Boston was an instaget for me. I probably have Wakko Warner to thank for that. Maybe Jo Dee Messina.

FJ! led me to space first; I even said comet. Fortunately the right answer occurred to me in time.

Ukraine, Grapes, Carey, Corvette; I was happy with none of them and fairly sure I was wrong Tuesday and Friday.
Said ruby instead of garnet. Even not knowing birthstones, "deep red" should have tipped me off.

Frustrating FJ. I haven't seen or read Les Mis but I recognized the character easily enough though I couldn't quite recall her name. I settled on "Colette". :( You did better than me. "Well, it's not Valjean or Javert, and those are the only two characters I can name..." and had to settle for "Who ...

Thought of Phillips before they showed the image.
I knew India and the US had nukes, but wasn't sure about China. I didn't know the next largest country by population, so I figured China was better than guessing at random.

Anyone else say "Phillip" for FJ? I said Phillips but was a little worried. I've never seen the name of the tool in print. So I didn't know if it was a Phillips or a Phillip ' s. Or maybe it was Phillip and just got misspoken over the years and became commonly known as Phillips. I considered "Phill...

I'm looking forward to finding out the scores for this game, since the telecast in my market was preempted by the president's speech. Neal Pollack was playing well when the broadcast was interrupted, but I didn't even see the entire Jeopardy! round. In my market, they aired Double Jeopardy! before ...

:mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( :mrgreen: :( Focused on the wrong date Tuesday, led me nowhere. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was a blind, "better than nothing" guess. Didn't know Monaco bordered France, went with Andorra. Clammed on both Mummers and Copland. Never heard of Tollund Man.
