Yes, I already know I'm not J! contestant material.

I should have had Monday's. I couldn't decide between Pollock and Wood and went with Pollock, even full well knowing Wood was from Iowa.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Gave The Crucible re: Our Town. Ah well! :oops:
Instantly recognized MONgolia then >>> Montenegro(?) >> MONaco (NOT MOLdova).

I had Mongolia, but couldn't think of Monaco for Friday.

4 weeks into the season, and this is my third 4/5 week. This is my best start to the season ever, FJ-wise.

Went 5/5 on FJ sitting in the audience that day, which was a tad frustrating.

I almost went with Brannagh for the Thursday game, but then couldn't come up with four movies in which he was the title character, so I fell back to "Well surely Olivier had at least four."

My first 5/5 since I've been keeping track. I don't remember my thought process on Monaco/Mongolia. I do remember thinking Nepal and Nether.... ooops that won't work.

I said Balfour on Tuesday, though even at the time I thought it was too politically loaded to be a FJ! response but I didn't pivot to something else quickly enough. Alec Guinness on Thursday; I think I was unsuccessfully trying to reach for Olivier. Mongolia first.
