Re: Thursday, April 2, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Chronology and geography would have helped retrospectively - The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms are in the 20s, while For Whom the Bell Tolls and A Farewell to Arms are both set in Spain. A Farewell to Arms is set in Italy. Oops, I messed up juggling the three Wikipedia pages, and trying to ...

Re: Wednesday, March 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I keep trying to come up with 8 and my brain fogs over. I know no ketchup, and probably no mayo either. Which leaves mustard, relish, onions, chili, maybe bell peppers, and then my imagination just runs out of gas. Anyone have any clues? Sport peppers not chili peppers. Don't think they use bell pe...

For FJ, I was pretty sure Pakistan was #2, then flipped a coin between Iran and India for #3, and went the wrong way with Iran.

Never seen or read Dr. Moreau

Never seen Moana. Did not consider an animated film for the answer.

Without wasting a poll slot, who else here knew that Indian religious place? Count me as one who knows a bit about Angkor Wat, but was totally thrown by the reference to Vishnu, since I thought it was always a Buddhist temple complex. The clue left me thinking about temple complexes in India, which...

The clue was a puzzling instaget. Is it really that easy? Yes, as there was no doubt for winning 5 in combo with always qualifying. There was no other country that could even sniff that distinction as I knew France only had 2 and could not forget the crying over Italy not making it last go-around. ...

Waitress was hard not to know about as a J! viewer in the NYC area. My pre-guess was Hairspray.
Yes, I think we viewers in the NY TV broadcast area have a decided advantage on at least recent Broadway questions, simply from the amount of advertising we see.

After archiving the game and listening multiple times, I'm not sure about how to present Krystina's incorrect response for the DAY JOB VU $2000 clue. I apologize in advance if I butcher this. The actual pronunciation is "va we(nasal n) sa". In the second syllable, the l has a line through it which ...

Regarding FJ, I remembered this previous reference. I wonder if the players today were given any advice regarding specificity.
I was wondering the same thing. Would a last name only be acceptable? Any advice on specifying a first name could be seen as a clue itself.

Not often, if ever, that they show family members in the audience.
