Seen an ep. of The Sopranos
Doyle on Thursday.

Note: For the station errors the Sacramento affiliate showed the J! & DJ! rounds of the Thursday game on Wednesday and switched to the proper Wednesday FJ! round while the Boston station showed a rerun of a Gilbert Collins game on Thursday instead of the new game.

2/5 (Wed and Thurs)

I've actually never seen a complete episode of The Sopranos. But I know about the show's famous ending.

Yes on El Dorado, and like I said in the game's thread, was surprised it was a TS.

Robert Burns.
Mind went completely blank on El Dorado. Even after the two missed guesses and pausing for ten seconds to give it chance to come up, I couldn't get it. On the plus side, I came up with Bartok out of nowhere, so it evens out.

Never seen The Sopranos.
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?

Would have gotten Bartok on another day.

Own all The Sopranos DVDs except the last season, and used to watch them while exercising, so have seen most episodes multiple times.

Watch J! on NYC or sometimes CT channels, so no problems

I went with Robert Burns on Monday, too. I was trying to remember which of him and Frost was the Scot.

For Tuesday I said Paris. Just because. Friday, no answer.

An easy week, including the one I missed... :roll:
I watched The Sopranos mostly on DVD. Now I have HBO, so I watched an episode today for the heck of it - S3 E4, "Employee of the Month." Spoiler: Something bad happens...but no one dies!

I saw "wharves," thought of San Francisco's Angel Island, couldn't make any other headway with José Martí (if only I'd known his dates, or Angel Island's as an immigration center); then the music started and my dad, incredulous at how easy it was, said "It's gotta be the Statue of Liberty, right?" I think I would have made it there in time, but I feel like punishing myself for not instagetting it.

I've never watched The Sopranos.

Sixth 5/5 of the season and first with all three extra clues. :mrgreen:

All instaget finals.

Have seen every episode of the Sopranos, the epitome of mediocre television.
I would prefer not to.

All FJs were instaget except a very embarrassing miss on The Sopranos. I’ve seen every episode and think it’s a great show, but I’m old enough that I don’t necessarily think of HBO as “TV”; it’s “cable”. Of course, that’s almost their slogan - “It’s not TV, it’s HBO.” Sigh.

I'm too lazy to check, but I think this isn't my first 5/5 week of the season.

I should've had El Dorado, but my brain completely froze and I couldn't recall it in time.

I'd love to try and binge The Sopranos someday, but for now, I've never seen an episode.

Felt like a bad week; didn't actually know it went better than I thought until I did the poll.

Have to admit Bartok was a SWAG -- didn't know he wrote the piece, but knew his first name was "Bela" so the "Hungarian" specification led to a confident-enough guess that I probably would have rung in.

Saw the Sopranos on DVD when first released; started rewatching on Amazon Thanksgiving weekend and we're up to about the middle of season 4. It was very top-of-mind since we see the logo a couple of times a week.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I was thinking Bartok, but for some reason what came out of my mouth was "Berlioz" :oops:

Last week I was 1/5 on FJs, and only got Friday's. The previous week I also went 5/5. Weird.
