It only took two games for J! to have enough time to run a full roll of the staff credits.

Laura was 4/4 on the big clues, so that is often a path to playing another game.

I matched the players to keep the clue at 100% with no detour to Taylor Swift. Alex threw me for a second with his remarks after the music as I thought he was leading towards some old timer still around.

I had no guess on FJ other than Bruno Mars (how many if any has he won, BTW?)

I wasn't sure on FJ, but since Adele is about the most overplayed artist ever she was my go to. And even though it's only 2 days into the season I still can't believe that I'm batting 1.000 on FJs!

I went with Beyonce on FJ.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Lord Byron for 2000? Chaplin a DD when spotted 'The Great Dictator'!? It's a new season, you had time off to write better clues, J! writers. Actually, I thought all of the DDs were a joke, and this game could've been a massacre had she not wagered such pitiful amounts. Nothing pleases me more than a long winning streak but I'm not sure I want to watch a week's worth of DDs pissed away :lol:

Instaget FJ.

Two games, two sports-related categories left to die. Off to a smashing start.

I wonder how many different intros they've got saved up.

Coryat: $21,600
DDs: 0/3
FJ!: :( (Went with Beyoncé. Taylor Swift also crossed the mind, but didn't make any leap to Adele. Damn.)

Went to Mel Brooks instead of Charlie Chaplin. "Jewish" and the odd name took me there. Should have gone with the only other person in recent history to sport a toothbrush mustache.

Most everything in the Bible category came a second too late, or was an "of course" after the fact.

Ran Whirled of Warcraft and Works Like A Charm.

Middling game for me otherwise.

You're not the only one.

TFW you miss an FJ that's a triple-get for the contestants. :(

There's a reason that pop music is my single-worst category in LL. In this case, I know who Adele is and am familiar with some of her songs, but I don't follow the Grammys. Grammy winners are one thing I would have to study if I ever get The Call.

Should just "Lautrec" have been accepted, as it was, for Tolouse-Lautrec on that one Art & Artists clue? Granted, it's a little complicated since his full name was Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa , but I've never heard him referred to as anything less than Toulouse-Lautrec.

I got FJ right despite it being a 100% guess.

I guessed Amy Winehouse. As soon as I saw the first response revealed, I knew it was right.

Any other boardies batting .500 for the season because they missed today's FJ?

It feels like it's been a while since we had three logical wagers

Weak clues tonight. Charlie Chaplin in Great Dictator as a DD, Voltaire at 1600, and Byron at 2000 was just pitiful.

Coryat today was 19600. 6400 at J, 13200 in DJ, and as expected all 3 DDs were correct. Took me a while to get to Adele for FJ (for some reason I was thinking of Kanye, Jay-Z, and Bruno Mars before I remembered).

For those of you who missed the FJ! clue and do the NYT crossword puzzle 11D for the 9/13 puzzle is your chance at redemption:

Dull game but it might just be me, post-Irma. Adele was an instaget for me.

Ugh! Two days into the new season and we get our first Millennial pop-culture FJ. This does not bode well. Guessed Taylor Swift, but I don't really give a crap which overhyped, electronically enhanced voice wins an Emmy.
