Re: Wednesday, January 13, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My closed caption is still spoiling every clue before KJ has finished reading it in some cases, and always before it is spoken. Anyone else? Or do most boardies eschew the CC? This might be an interesting poll question when we have a slow poll week. Our CC almost always spoils the answer, but I can...

My FJ answer would be “that Russian dog whose name starts with L”. Couldn’t remember the rest of the name.

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I turned it on in the middle of the second clue so I was a little taken aback not to hear Alex’s voice. Did Ken say anything at the beginning beyond the usual greetings? I was pleasantly surprised how well he did. Being very familiar with the show and how it works was no doubt a help for him. Reser...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Brooke can certainly read questions faster than Sara.

I thought a few of the questions in the multiple choice round bordered on the ridiculously obscure, although I guess not to Ken. I wonder how the difficulty level will come across to the primetime audience trying to play along at home.

Re: Wednesday, January 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I knew the minute I saw it it was likely a marvel movie. At least I was right on that. Shame is, I've seen Wonder Woman and could not have told you the the war was WW1, just a lot of crazy green screen (CGI) stuff that could never happen in a bazillion years. I do admire the people who write that s...

I briefly thought of Warhorse for FJ, then went “duh, of course it’s Wonder Woman”. The publicity around the sequel probably helped.

I thought the FJ clue was pointing to Robinson Crusoe as the title character, so I wrote down Friday (remembering nothing about the novel)

This FJ is another opportunity to wonder if certain facts known to “older” people might be more obscure to the younger generation. Doubt that Cyrano is as well known as it used to be.

Re: Thursday, December 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I guess I’ll be the nitpicker on FJ. While I got it, I was very surprised at the claim that the cities were less than 20 miles apart. A company I worked for had offices in both cities and multiple people have told me they are about an hour apart by car, or about 50-60 miles by road. Even googling ar...

Have seen Holy Grail more than once. Didn’t remember exactly when it came out and never would make the connection to something not in the script. Went with Pink Panther. Dracula on Wednesday. Borneo instead of Bali.

And my FJ streak ends at 15, for something I should have gotten. Went The Pink Panther, even though I knew that was way earlier. I don't think I've seen this movie since college, and even then I wasn't paying close attention. I went with Pink Panther too, but didn’t think it was right either. A cle...

Re: What ought to happen next?

I suspect that under the circumstances, the producers have been thinking about a new host for the past year and a half and almost definitely know who it will be. The specific timing of Alex’s passing may throw a bit of a wrench into the process if that person currently has other commitments. Given t...
