Michael Moriarty played Harry Potter in Troll.
Probably literally hundreds of these, though.

Does not approve.
Is it just the term you object to, or the suggestion? Though I obviously suggested it tongue-in-cheek, why couldn't, say, ND, SD, WY and MT have all been one state? It'd still have less than 3 million people, thus being much smaller in both area and population than Ontario or Quebec.
I know you were going tongue-in-cheek, and so was I. I was just trying to shoehorn in a reference.

(And to think I break out the barf bag when Family Guy does the same thing.)

I had Texas-Louisiana for FJ!

Never heard of Norman, New Mexico.

Over there, they associate "Norman" with Sue Thompson more than Oklahoma.

(There was a serious of comments in a thread a few weeks back) I want to repeat that the contestant coordinators do advise contestants to use only last names if its unambiguous to speed up play.
OTOH, something I realized today: often, when a last name only is given, Alex fills in the first name, therefore completely negating the time saved! Hmmm.

Started out with Ga/Fla, then moved to Cal/AZ. didn't consider the fact California was too big to grow by that high a percentage. Did not know AZ and Nevada bordered anyway.

For me the Oklahoma clue was "Blah blah blah college in Norman blah blah blah, never even noticed Santa Fe. Good thing I'm a college football fan.

Never knew Schwarzkopf was storming in Grenada. Had to do some fast thinking on the Harold/Liz clue. I was ready to go for Victoria, but then they wanted to know her son's name. Wasn't Edward VII a big discussion here recently?

Bad wagering all around, but the one who got a fairly tough FJ won.

Wasn't sure if there is a central request repository for these kinds of things, but would anyone happen to have a digital copy of this episode? I don't have a recording on hand, can probably chase it down from a couple of acquiantances but thought I'd seek the internet's help first. thanks!

Doesn't go back nearly that far, though.

So, while not outright banned by the rules of the forum, requests such as this generally don't bear fruit.

Those who do upload games are more focused on uploading the older games, generally the ones not in J! Archive.

Those who don't generally upload games but may have the games in their collections are loath to do so, because if word got out, they would be inundated by requests like this one, and that's not a burden that they wish to bear (nor is it a burden that they should be expected to bear).

All this may be true but note that this is one of the players in the game. I think anyone who has the game available and a way to upload would be glad to help out a contestant. Doing so by private message would send no signals or advertisements that it is open season on this uploader for requests.

I'm certainly not expecting anyone to help, just letting anyone know that it would be much appreciated :)

will keep an eye on private messages if anyone has leads. thanks!

My bad. I failed to realize this was a 2012 thread that got bumped.

These requests are rare, and we are talking about someone looking for a copy of their own appearance. That being said, Daniel, I hope someone is able to help you out.
