Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've seen about five minutes of the first ep. of The Handmaid's Tale , but J! clues, award shows, EW, TV Guide, etc. are enough to pick up little things like the "Of" names .... Even this very board! https://www.jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?p=295948#p295948 I knew of the "Of" names, saving me from a bag...

Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did anyone know "June gloom"? That seemed like a very California-centric clue. I did but I'm from there. You may be right that it's not known elsewhere. I'm curious if it's even known in Northern California or more than 100 miles from the coast. These are the same writers that think everyone has he...

Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I started with Dollar Rent-a-Car but I couldn’t imagine a $1 a day car rental, even in 1962. Nightly rate led me to hotels so I checked in with the right company. I then thought about Super 8 but Motel 6 is better known so that was it. runs: Shameless, Testing, Daily Doubles: :D (total WAG) :D :D t...

NORTH AMERICAN GEOGRAPHY Communities in this province include Sydney, Dartmouth, Pleasant Bay and Argyle. What is Nova Scotia? My wife is from Dartmouth, NS so I wasn't missing this one! Good clue though, I can see the path to a solve if you're not married to someone from there. Argyle was the give...

I chose option #2. My actual feelings combine the first clause of that option and the second clause of option #3. I think he is doing well but I do want to see the other hosts.
I chose option #3, but my opinion is the same as yours.
Another vote for option 3, for the same reasons.

Has anyone even heard of Ted Lasso? (besides Vixey) :?
I've seen the first season twice, and cannot recommend it highly enough.
Some of you have way too much time on your hands. I don't even watch network TV, & the writers expect us to know every random streamed show? Seriously?

NHO babaganoush. That was only slightly less obscure than liederkranz.

I agree with Robert they should be using their time trying out serious candidates and not an active NFL quarterback just for attention.
Has anybody called Brett Favre? He might be available.
