Re: Wednesday, March 17, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Should the "Schitt's Creek" caption be noted in the archive? It was easy to figure out why they did that. These were not boards today. I think I only got about eight right. Even the word category skunked me. Had Bull Moose on FJ! but high and dry on the other. Didn't know socialist went that far back.

Re: Tuesday, March 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Katie had some good ad-libs, like snapping her fingers on the Addams clue and "shake it off" after the Taylor Swift story. Mammals for $600 was enormous negbait for "mole", although playing the category in order might have lessened that. Moles threw me twice in that category, since I didn't know tha...

Bread -> pan -> Panem was easy. I got it before Katie was done reading the clue.

Is this like "champing at the bit", which I now see people rendering as "chomping at the bit"?
Opposite for me. J! is literally the only place I've ever seen it written as "champing".

I loved the Obstacles category. Didn't love blanking on Thunberg's name.

Katie seemed to be aware that the champ was still able to pull out a win.

Re: Thursday, March 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Katie calling the Neck and Neck category "racy" was a decent ad-lib. I also loved the shout-out to How Green Was My Valley being Alex's favorite film. ==== I love onions, but I ended up crying when that category was done because I didn't get a single one right. Detroit Pistons was the only one of th...

Happy 34th to me. There used to be a country music singer named Lari White. I always thought her name was pronounced "Lori" until I heard her say it as "Lah-ree" in one of her own music videos. I like that Katie elaborates on and reacts to clues a bit more than Mike did. She could benefit from nudgi...

Re: How Did Mike Richards Do as Host?

7. Seemed to be trying a bit too hard at times, not enough at others. He seems like someone who at least knows what makes a good host, but doesn't quite have the knack to consistently pull it off himself.

Re: How Did Ken Do as Host?

9. He just seems like such a natural progression, and he has the reverence for the job. He clearly warmed up fast to overcome his lack of frontman experience.

Re: Tuesday, March 9, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I like that Katie doesn't lean too hard into the "we were looking for". That was really grating by the 700th time I heard Mike Richards say it. Liked the band category. I got all but OK GO. "Eye of London" is completely unfamiliar to me. Katie shares my love of kalamata olives, it seems. This was ea...

Re: Monday, March 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Both Mike and Katie have been a bit stiffer at reading the clues than Ken was, but I imagine that more detailed inflections come with practice. I noticed she pronounced "klavier" wrong, though her French and Spanish seemed mostly on point. Katie was decent with the ad-libs and elaboration of clues, ...

Re: FJs for the 3/1/21 week

Surely you have to admire the parallelism of the addition of an alveolar plosive involved in rhyming "girl" with "world" and "boy" with "Detroit"! Girl/world is the most overused rhyme either. And I don't know why, since it isn't even a perfect rhyme. Other common rhymes like be/me or minute/in it ...

As for adding it to the archive? I can't just add it as a note under the $1600 without RKS giving approval. I can't recall other unplayed clues that turned up getting archived either.
Didn't the Pokémon category last year have an unplayed clue that got posted on YouTube?

"Don't Stop Believin'" is one of the worst songs of the 80s and needs to go the hell away already. I don't feel bad for missing this one.

Dierks Bentley for Dirk Gently was one of the funniest "close but no cigar" guesses I've heard in a long time. "Bonfires and nudity" was a great ad-lib from Mike. Showing my strength for words, I ran Homophones. Precalled King of the Hill in King of TV. I've received many a "dammit, Bobby" in my day...

Had another closing shift followed by a morning shift, so I'm only now catching up. I will not miss Mike Richards' robotic inflection by the end of this week, but it does feel like he's trying to correct it. Anyone tempted to say "Yakka foob mog. Grug pubbawup zink wattoom gazork.

Re: Tuesday, March 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Mike still seems a bit stiff at times. Even Ken seemed better at getting the hang of drama, so even big leads like this don't seem as fun as they used to. I may be mainly a keyboardist, but I'm also enough of a guitarist for Guitar Talk to have been an easy run. I am curious as to how many people he...
