Blah boards for me. Seemed like pop culture and leftover heavy.

That radius/circumference neg was tough luck.

How y'all feel about the FJ? I figured the right movie. I didn't even know there was a character with that name. Is the character that popular to be a FJ response?

Mallory got another plug in with her IMDb page and credited role in The Search for One-eye Jimmy. Quite the cast in that film.

Mayim was correct with comment about the shortbread stumper.

The FJ! category had me thinking movies though doubly incorrect as I had "Buono Notte" for "Bella Notte" from Lady and the Tramp and "Que Sera Sera" which is not Italian.

The clue had me almost just as lost although after a detour to Fellini and La Strada I picked the right movie for most likely in the FJ! scope. With no idea about the character, since I have never seen (guilty, although I won't be the only one after it's polled), the movie, (I was 8 when it was released), I went with the family name to have something.

Daniel winning was not a surprise based on his reddit postings this week. DD3 and the lead worked in his favor today.

Seeing the "Go west young man" Daily Double I thought, "Wasn't that just a Final Jeopardy"? Well it was, but it was slightly more than a year ago, May 3, 2021. Time really flies.

You gotta know that quote.

When the champ missed the DD I felt we weren’t in for a TOC type game.

Never seen the movie but somehow got this one. Probably had enough LT to claim a fourth podium win.

Seen the movie several times and figured it was the one they were looking for, could picture the character even though I didn’t recognize the names of the people he killed, but just could not pull his name. Spent too much time trying to figure out an Italian word for mercy.

Which goes to show that the FJ category can be misleading. You could be fluent in Italian and if you don’t know the character’s name, you are sunk.

So was yesterday. I wish I could put the polls together but I'm just well enough at the moment.

EDIT: not.

Knew the movie they hinted at was The Godfather, remembered Carlo was the a-hole husband of Connie, but couldn't remember who killed him near the end. WAGed Vito, remembering it was Italian for something (Italian for "life," ironically enough), also knowing DeNiro's Vito killed some people in Godfather II.

Literally did a crossword today which mentioned Tonga's capital. Not etched in my mind enough to get it otherwise, so thank you, Simon & Schuster.

So many characters in the movies, I couldn't place the names of either the killer or the victims, and had no chance based on the cast names. I did get it from "Italian for mercy," but really, was there any reason anyone would be expected to know those names?

I thought the whole second board was brutally tough (of course with a pop songs cat I can figure on 0-for-5, so that's an awful start). But I ended the round with 11R, 1W. Just Woof!

Daniel posted this on Monday:

It was no guarantee that he was going to win, but it was impossible to be surprised today.
