Got Paul Bunyan babe from "knew it" and wood chipper and Steve Buscemi from educated guess and WAG respectively. Missed the 90/50/50 on Joel and Ethan on the very first question. My best get, though, was the ultimate question. Been a Laura Linney fan forever, and knew that was part of her resume.

Random thought: if it hasn't happened yet, seaborgium should play this with a Jeopardy! specialty.

The third episode was definitely my favorite; not only did I manage to miss only one question in Arrested Development, but the chemistry between the three contestants was fantastic.

I enjoyed this episode even though I only got a few questions right.
SpoilerShow
I knew Wes Craven and Showtime. I don't think I knew any others.

Also, that really hurt for Dave. I don't think that he had missed a question until he only got 3 of 4 in the final round.

*nod* Good episode. Unlike you, I got zero questions right on AD and only 4 on Nightmare and 3 on Bats.

And "White People" is a phrase. ;)

Haha; the closest I came to getting anything correct in regards to bats was saying "radar."

I was also glad to see better strategy in regards to point transferring than in games 1 and 2. This concept really adds a unique dimension to The Experts that helps separate the show from others in the same vein. I will say that I'm surprised by the "split-wager" in round four that we've seen several times; if you're an "expert," one of these categories should be in your wheelhouse and allow for a substantial bet. Maybe that's just me, though.

Finally watched it. Did ok in round one, 1/10 on Elm St (Depp), 2/10 on AD (Craven and a guess I don't even recall anymore), and 6 (!!) on bats.
Didn't get any more right after that.

I thought this was funny, during the "predict" round:
Alan: (paraphrasing)There's Amber, trying to figure out if Dave knows. Poker face, poker face...
Dave: Alan! I hardly know'er!

ok, maybe I imagined Dave's response.

Thanks, everybody! Glad you can feel the chemistry between the players. The crew and I were laughing so much during the pre-game interviews because these people are true FANATICS!

This week looks like fun. I'll be interested to see how I do in the Harry Potter category.

2 right in the Oscars, 3 in Friends, including the pre-call on Chandler's mis-naming.
Got both Friends questions in round two (3 and 5 pt value), and the Oscars question about 1981.

That's it. 8 correct total, USC skunked me.
