Something tells me that PRESIDENTIAL MUSIC? was a leftover from last seasons Power Players tournament.

Ear test of the day: Matt’s “alley-oop” response sounded more like “olly-oop” to me.
I could have sworn that it was more of a Francophile sounding "allez oup"
Why not? "alley" and "Ally" (as in Ally Sheedy) are the same.

NHO "Thorn Birds" either. How is that supposed to lead to Australia?

The author of The Thorn Birds was an Australian named Colleen McCoullough.


I also had NYC for FJ.

Re: Thursday, April 20, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I only know McCarthy via SNL, so I wouldn't have gotten this FJ if you gave me 30 minutes. Bible is in my wheelhouse but that bottom clue was YEKIOYD (Paul's letter to Romans). Still went 4/5 though. Ruth is mentioned in Matthew's genealogy ofJesus (tracing his lineage back to David) so that was in...

Re: Monday, April 17, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't know how to work the Archive search mastery, but anyone thinking today's tribble was the first time Alex held something for a clue is far from right as it's happened previously. I'm thinking a couple of dozen times or so at least. Here's one example I was able to find: #524, aired 1986-12-1...

Sequoia = Oklahoma, huh?

It's spelled S-E-Q-U-O-Y-A-H, as in the American Indian leader, not the tree.

Re: The Chase

I've watched plenty of episodes of both the UK and Australian versions of The Chase, and yeah, I prefer them both to the US version, which I've only seen a few of. The pacing of the US version seemed to drag on a lot more and I didn't like how Mark (The Beast) was the only chaser. Both the UK and A...

Re: The Chase

I think you need to do a recount of how many questions per episode we saw in 500 Questions vs the Chase if you're going to mention pacing. The Chase also had way more questions per episode than most prime time games these days. Eta: if you think Jeopardy is the gold standard of pacing, keep in mind...

Re: The Chase

You can do a search on this board of "chase beast" to find several previous threads about the show. Brooke Burns was a good host. Brooke Burke on The Celebrity Apprentice is a different story. GSN quickly made a decision for a second season of Divided , so who knows what goes on in their decision m...

Yes. Tramp as a verb means to walk loudly.
