Re: Thursday, June 17, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's fine if they want to ask for the full names on the father/son governors but the clue really needs to indicate that this is required, as the second row placement would be a strong clue to players that all they need to give is the Browns for credit. Given the requirement for both first names, the...

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

There are times where it is very silly to pass rather than throw out a guess. Notably in the two episodes this season, the first one had a guy buzzing on "which soup company...." and saying pass rather than Campbell's, which would have been correct. This week the question was "how many months have 3...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I just went to the LL page to remind myself of the questions and there’s a notice in a red box that I may have submitted my answers too late although it lists my submission time (correctly!) as 10:28pm EST. I hope it’s just a glitch as I got either all 6 correct or 5/6 if baking soda isn’t similar ...

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

Pretty bad. Constant off screen giggling was weird & she is not attractive. Plus she has some big pharma ads running which adds to the overkill. She was okay on BBT but enough is enough. Please tell me more about how the host gets to choose what ads run during the show on each and every station acr...

Re: Thursday, June 10, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Finally done: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=7042 Not the kind of game I could archive quickly. My hands are tired of typing Mayim today. Obviously this is a little late in the game but I wonder for the guest host era could Robert have programmed the Archive to fill-in the name of t...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I think you're quite exaggerating how hard/obscure this was. This has mostly been said but, "Made in America" is the final episode and has one of the most famous/talked about ending scenes in 21st century television. The Pine Barrens points to New Jersey and the Italian name certainly fits with a m...

What the heck was supposed to help you to get to Sopranos? I looked it up after the fact, and the only character name in the titles is someone who never appears and is never mentioned again. Apparently, there are well known Pine Barrens here in NJ (I'm right near the areas represented on the show) ...

Re: Season 37 Preemptions

NBC will air the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines (South) in San Diego for three hours each on Thursday, June 17th (4-7PT) & Friday, June 18th (3-6PT), so somewhere in there some J! viewers will have to be affected. This will be me, here in Indianapolis we have J! on the NBC affiliate at 7:30, usually do ...

Re: Friday, May 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Very frustrating how flawed her logic was. After that DD she should have had a $14200 lead with 24 clues and a DD left. At that point she just has to maintain, (which she was doing so far that game) answer FJ correctly, and take home $250k. Sure is easy to shoulda woulda when you know how easy the ...

Re: Friday, May 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, Both the FJ yesterday and the Daily Double today, Jennifer bet small, I think if she doubles up on either one of those, let alone both, she likely is the champion. Or at least she forces Sam to be correct on FJ to win. Maybe he focuses more on the Final if he has to be right, and comes up with...

Re: Wednesday, May 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would like to see some analysis of Jason's last DD wager. My intuition, without looking at the numbers, was that a wager that big at that point in the game had way more potential downside than potential upside. Lead of $2600 with $4800 left to be played. A wager of $2201 mathematically locks it o...

I'm not sure I've actually heard of the book, but I managed to make the right leap. Spent 15 seconds thinking about murders like American Tragedy and In Cold Blood but then refocused on Nobel and thought welp, I don't think it's Hemingway, don't think it's Steinbeck, maybe Faulkner...OOOHHH county, ...

Re: Monday, May 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Bogus FJ. If they were going to use it during the tourney, it should have been used last week. That doesn't really make sense. It's repeated pretty often that great effort should be made to have all of the quarterfinal FJs reasonably similar in difficulty. (The overall boards too but especially the...

Lear and the daughters is the extent of my Shakespeare knowledge I had at the ready for that work. That's my extent, too. Maybe one of these day 1809 will click for me.

Re: Thursday, May 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Full credit roll. The FJ! clue had me correctly place the line by the right two states. From there it was guess the names. Buzzy only gave one variant for the Lord and I went a different way with a family name instead of a city. The J! Fan has George or Cecil to match the last name. Should I go wit...

Re: Wednesday, May 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I knew this was going to be 0/3 when I saw the category. Apparently, I have no idea where the Red Sea is. Now I do, though. I wasn’t really sure where it was other than a general idea but got it on a lucky guess. Jennifer was in a good spot where she could go for the kill without killing her chance...
