Re: Monday, July 16, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tuned in for FJ and was stumped. I wouldn't have had the correct response even if you had spotted me an 'm' to start, even though I've heard of muckraking.

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I tuned in just for FJ. I approached it by mentally compiling a list of popular languages, and when I got to Spanish, I figured it was probably the correct response.

Re: Tuesday, July 10, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tuned in for FJ, which was an instaget. I remember people praising Jobs for making things people would want to buy before they knew it (or something along those lines), which may have been inspired by that quote. The year (1989) also fit with his first stint at Apple. Finally, his name often seems t...

Re: Thursday, July 5, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

For whatever reason, for FJ I latched onto small states and went with Hawaii. New York made sense on the reveal, though.

Re: Tuesday, July 3, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I agree with the earlier comment that the game was a bit unusual, with the champ seemingly nonexistent at times and the challengers having ups and downs. Even though I've seen North by Northwest, I was a bit confused by the working title and didn't make the connection. My WAG was -- feel free to lau...

Re: Monday, July 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Played FJ from the thread. The name and the calculated year of birth led me to guess Stalin, but not with any confidence.

Re: Wednesday, June 27, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

For FJ I simply went with a well-known teen comedy from 1982 and got it right. The Oscar part of the clue didn't help me one bit.

Bad wagers by the guys... I'll leave it at that.

I was pleasantly surprised when my WAG for FJ turned out to be correct.

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ had me first thinking of world's fair sites, then finding immediate success upon switching to simply listing various fabrics.

Re: Monday, June 18, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ (or one might say, the Final Problem) was an instaget before Alex finished reading the clue.

Re: Thursday, June 14, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was an instaget, in part from knowing that Shania Twain was from Ontario, whereas Celine Dion was from Quebec. I also remembered that Twain's album "Come On Over" was a massive bestseller in the late 1990s.

I went with "runners up" for FJ. I doubt I would have ever come up with "also rans."

Re: Tuesday, May 29, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

As someone who enjoys reading classic mystery novels, and has read several by Agatha Christie (but not the one that was the correct response), I was ashamed of myself for not getting FJ. I simply did not think carefully about the clue.

Re: Monday, May 28, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

An average game to watch and I managed to pick up some Lach Trash (e.g., The Tourist, parentheses, quadratic).

FJ was an instaget.

I mulled over FJ for most of the think time, coming up with the correct response near the end.

Re: Thursday, May 24, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

When Ursula hit the last DD, she had $10,400, which was $3,600 less than the leader's $14,000, as noted by Alex. I got the impression that she wasn't very confident about the opera category, which might be why she didn't try to take the lead and wagered only $2,000. However, I think a better wager w...

Re: Wednesday, May 23, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also thought of Komodo dragon for FJ, but rejected it at the last moment when I realized it wasn't a mammal. However, I would not have come up with the correct response even if I had more time.
