Re: Wednesday, March 31, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I made a quick stop at Robert (not Roy!) Indiana's LOVE (he lived on an island in Maine we visit frequently), and then the Big Apple and finally just said Apple to be on the safe side. I wouldn't think of that as a logo. The revised version looks like an MRI of my heart after Covid.

So, what is your handicap?

Re: Tuesday, March 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Anyone else slightly bothered and thrown off by Battlestar Galactica being abbrev. as BSG and not BG? I've seen it abbreviated that way before. Plus the category didn't specify that anything would be strictly abbreviated to initials. BSG is the correct abbreviation for the new series. Is there some...

Playing off the archive, Augusta for which course hosts The Masters is at the very least a BMS as the course is called Augusta National. Furthermore, behind #12 you can see the 9th fairway of neighboring Augusta Country Club. Two totally different courses. If you just say Augusta nobody knows which...

Re: Friday, March 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is it a triple stumper if initially ruled correct and then changed at a break? When Lisa mangled Dostoevsky I was ready get it on a rebound. I'd say by definition, if a correct answer was not given on the show, it's a triple stumper (as opposed to a stand-and-stare when no one buzzes in). It's impo...

Finally catching up and surprised to see no mention of the captioning goof on the Bradbury response (first Nebula Awards category clue) which was captioned as "Who is Brad Berry?" (or should that have been "Who is Brad Barry?" :D ). That, among other errors, prompted my comment in the next day's th...

Re: Thursday, March 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Anyone else notice that the closed captioning has gone downhill? Until recently, they caught every nuance including mistakes by the contestants. Now, it seems like they don't even know what the response means. Kind of a bummer. Why would I turn captioning on? I always have it on anyway. And for Jeo...

I'll just pile on and say it was exactly the kind of FJ I don't enjoy seeing. Nothing interesting whatsoever about it. And Dr. Oz got even worse, not better, in my book. Ugh.

He did better than I thought he would, but I'd put him down as a big 'meh'. I guess we'll see with more shows.

Re: Rank the Three Guest Hosts So Far

If you're a slave to social media, Mike gets the edge, as both Katie and Ken are known off-set for their individual worldviews that offend various potential viewers. On-set, however, neither Katie nor Ken evinced anything other than nonpartisan respect for the game and the players. If you're hoping...

I went with Billy Elliot, figuring that actors must age out of the lead role, so there is a lot of turnover.
