Btw a quick search shows that Jacqueline Bisset was on the cover.

Re: TV Guide Once Acknowledged the Existence of "Jeopardy!"

Jeopardy! Was much better back then too. Tougher questions, sharper contestants & generally better games.

Re: Audition Emails

Sorry about your Mom. Good luck that day!

I'm hoping for an invite to the NYC auditions but I'll be in Italy from this Thursday until early April. I hope I don't miss out on another chance!

Re: Friday, March 16, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm leaving for Italy next Thursday & I did some early packing. One item was a money belt which is from Victorinox. I agree that the tent clue should have stood.

Congrats Hannah! I used to do the ny Times puzzle later in the week; I just do Sundays now.

I missed the FJ. Haven't seen that movie since 1977. Still, I should have remembered. I agree that Havana was a surprising triple stumper. Sharla seemed like she was in a bad mood. Is movie mocker a paid job? Is the recession that bad?

I love Jagger & I like that song until Christina goes all banshee on it. It's nice to see the world's best frontman in a #1 song.

I hope they're done with clues from Geoffrey Canada. It uses up at least 3 times the normal question time. And the answers are ridiculously easy.

Re: Thursday, March 15, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

60 Minutes is going to do a segment on TPH's affliction this Sunday. Also, apparently "Tarzan" from Survivor has the same problem. I have trouble recognizing people I know out of context - like a co- worker from the office at the supermarket. I find this happening more often as I get older. Tarzan ...

Re: Thursday, March 15, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was great to see a show with 3 fine contestants! I was surprised spinning Jenny was a TS but I'm fine with the rest of the game. I knew FJ right away so I'm 3/4 this week.

To the mods: While I did criticize her as dull, I also noted she was shrewd. I guess one of you thinks I'm not too bright myself. So nice. I'll try to be more "Rah, rah, rah!" in the future. And I guess I'd better keep my highly negative opinions of the J! staff REALLY close to the vest...:)))

Re: Monday, March 12, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm an American & I knew Conrad Black instantly. This was a frustrating game to watch & the idea that dull Jessamine is a 3 day champ with chump change is amusing. She's not too bright but she's shrewd with her bets so good for her. I knew Iberians right away but I did vacillate a bit because of the...

Re: Monday, March 5, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm actually one of about 56 cousins. Is that enough for you? I'm sure it would be. But I have always found that upon mentioning my 75 first cousins, people generally react with "is that all?" So, I've had to resort to mentioning the span between my oldest and youngest first cousins' ages, because ...

Re: Thursday, March 8, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was an easy one: I've only seen Les Miz & in fact I started sleeping until those gun battles kept waking me up.

I'm leaving for Italy in exactly 2 weeks so all the planning made campanile an easy get. It did seem like there were some surprising TSs. Nice win by #3!

I'm actually one of about 56 cousins. Is that enough for you? I agree with what Vanya is saying. It's not like Rush is visiting this site but there are plenty of fat people who do & they're the ones who get hurt. As for the guy with the lisp, I wouldn't insult him for that but he was a poor contende...

Re: Tuesday, March 6, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Much better contestants than yesterday but that movie category was excruciating. Breaking Away was one of my fave movies for many years. I haven't seen the Carolla movie but the rest of the clue made it easy.

Re: Monday, March 5, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'd rather have Rush as the photo than miss Fluke. She's nasty. Seaborgium, the fact is that they did miss the DDs. I was rooting for the woman since I have a ton of cousins too & she seemed sharp in the beginning. Anyway, it's just a disappointment I have with the show lately. Too many triple stump...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Hi, my first name is John and I've qualified for J! Quite a few times since 1995 but I haven't received a call yet and frankly, I'm not expecting it at this point. I've been watching the show since the Art Fleming days and somd things aren't meant to be. I live in the NY area and I'm about to retire...
