This was a triple get? I'll never figure out J! contestants. Instaget FJ.
I am mystified by this comment. It was an instaget for you, but you're shocked that all three contestants got it right in 30 seconds?
Because I honestly thought Friday's FJ was easier, and it was 1/3. Now, different clues, different people, different strengths, etc. (this includes me, of course), and don't get me wrong, 2/3 wouldn't have surprised me. But if you showed me a list of this season's FJs and asked me to predict the triple gets, I wouldn't have picked this one. *shrug*
Yeah it asked for a civil war novel, this is pretty clearly the most prominent one, not sure why you are surprised by the outcome.

I think that GWTW might also contend for that crown, not that it would factor into consideration of this FJ.

Some of my friends got cars, but I got a subscription to what was then Broadcasting as a high school graduation present. I think they added the & Cable during the initial term of that subscription.
