Tue - A1 (and strongly wished 'atlas' would've been sufficient...)

Neither Tue or Fri aired at their usual time; Friday was preempted for fire coverage.

Hamilton as a desperation guess. The only other remotely plausible idea I had was Spring Awakening, which I knew to be older than that. Unfimiliar with Dear Evan Hansen.

Show aired on schedule Tuesday.
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

Not actually watching the Teen Tournament (nothing against them, just need a break) but WAR would have been insta, it's a stat about which I have complicated feelings...

Domesday Book was not on my radar, but looking at Wikipedia after that day's game, it seems quite a neat little bit of history.

Dear Evan Hansen was easy for me because once last year when I was having a rough day a kind professor sent me a song from it to cheer me up. Otherwise I'm not sure I'd have known it.

C1 I got because once upon a time in the dusky past I was in school to be a massage therapist. The term's worth of kinesiology/anatomy I learned helps me on Jeopardy from time to time.

I got spoiled on Dear Evan Hansen. It's one of the hazards of living on the west coast and being on social media with other J! people; I was innocently scrolling Twitter and saw a retweet of the official DEH account's video of their people watching the FJ clue and response reveals. While I didn't watch the video and mostly forgot about it, I immediately recalled it on the FJ reveal. I've heard of the show, but I'm not sure I knew enough about it to be able to get it. I try to go back and forth on the benefit of the doubt when it comes to FJ spoilage, and I'll be counting this as a miss.

Monday - Thomas the Tank Engine
Tuesday - No guess
Wednesday - No guess, thought of Spring Awakening but knew it couldn't possibly be right
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Said Pablo Casal, for no credit.

Helpful mnemonic, the S in CasalS is for Spanish.

Pretty familiar with Broadway, and living in the NY area see ads for the current shows, including Evan Hansen.

Didn’t see the baseball clue, but probably wouldn’t have gotten it from the abbreviation.

No pre-emptions in my market.

2/5.

I missed Friday's but it's one of those "I should have had it" ones... but then again, so was Tuesday's.

Dear Evan Hansen has been running on Broadway since December 2016. Glad to see it's doing better at this point than the spine coordinate; as FJ clues go, I find it a bit more interesting... :roll: I happen to have seen the show a couple of weeks ago. Not bad...

Got as far as "Pablo C....C...Crrggrhh...oh of course it is, damnit". So of course it shows up in the poll.

I have absolutely no interest in musicals/Broadway, so it's something that I have to try and memorize from lists and news postings, and it still doesn't always "stick". Case in point, I managed to forget LAST YEAR'S winner :roll:

The fact that the C1 vertebra is not just sub-50%, but running slightly behind Dear Evan Hansen is...fascinating.

I have heard of Dear Evan Hansen but I had no idea what it's about, so I didn't make the connection.

No real idea on Tuesday, but V1 seemed to have that buzz. On Wednesday I was about 70% confident it was Evan Hansen Something or Something Evan Hansen, but I couldn't come up with the right something. The show had been brought to my mind that very morning by a newspaper story about it just beginning a sold-out-everywhere national tour, and later that day a woman on the bus told me she had tickets to see it on Broadway later that night.

I've been trying to repair some deficiencies lately, so in this past year I've read not only Paddington Bear but also Eloise, Black Beauty (albeit in an abridged edition) and Harold and the Purple Crayon.

No idea what aired or didn't in my area. Played them from here.
I'm smart and I want respect.

I wonder what the overlap is. Anyone get both? I got C1 but not DEH.

The poll shows 9 at 5/5 meaning they got both. As one of the perfectos I can say I had the musical on my short precall list. For knowing the title it has hit my radar multiple ways such as star Ben Platt on talk shows I've seen, the Tony Awards nominations/winners, and the JBoard with the Current Events thread/TD games. I got a singleton on it on a stage TD game.

For C1 the category right off the bat had me thinking spine designations. For having learned the alphanumerics to go along with C, T & L it would be sports injuries naming the specific area of impact that had it common knowledge for me while obviously based on the poll results not as common for others.

Of the two I'm more surprised by the difficulty level of C1 than DEH.
