Bah, a poor imitation of the original Four-Level Interchange, which isn't far from the J! studios.

To be experienced for yourselves!!!!
Ha. I live a mile from that. If anything, I enjoy it. What freaks me out, though, is the Mixmaster, and all of the construction before it...

Beltway 8 in Houston has a few of those, I think.

I would send them into retirement. They are all lovely, enjoyable people; but with all due respect, I think their presence is gimmicky and unnecessary and adds nothing substantial to the already-excellent show. Taking all the extra time to read their long clues, along with the visuals from their on-location clue reads, just slow the game down IMHO.

Just chiming in to say that I see where you're coming from, but I think I disagree. I like the idea of giving the viewers mini-tours of interesting locales. I think it adds a little something to the show. It would be nice if they could write shorter clues so they don't take up so much time, though.

Definitely.
Case in point: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=3354
The Malecón, or river walk, was rebuilt on a more grand scale after the 1896 fire, which some said was set on purpose to keep President Alfaro from moving the capital here to Guayaquil from this city
