It would have been ridiculous if I noted all the misplaced instances of applause in the game. Alex's opening was incredibly lengthy as well before getting the game going. As an archivist it was nice to have a bunch of trigger finger clues.Bamaman wrote: They applauded the guy in the middle for getting it right?
Thanks for getting that game in, it was cool to see. I liked the commercial as well.
So were you recording the show even back then? I'm guessing you were in college then? (I was a senior in high school and I think you're a little older than me). At least you knew a place to stock up on video tape!!!
Yes, I was in college in 1984 (graduated H.S. in '81) and I had my schedule set up pretty much like high school to be done by 3 or so each weekday, so the timing worked out to watch J! I would have been on break late Dec. '84, so I have no idea why I had that game on tape.
On the same tape I have most of the DJ! round and FJ! round for Frankel #2 as well as one complete Liz Caccese to do next week. The tape also had the pilot episode (would have been a Dec. rerun) of It's Your Move and I must have watched it many times because I still knew a lot of the lines last night all these years later. The tape also had 2 episodes of V the 1984-85 weekly series and Casey Kasem on America's Top 10 doing the top songs of 1984.
Ooh, a special on VHS tapes with one for $4.95 Yeah, I can remember when they were $5 or more. It was years down the road to getting a brick of 10 for $10 at Costco. One thing about those old tapes is obviously they held up well enough as that YouTube video was not completely terrible considering it was 6-hour speed.
