:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :( Considered Crusoe, but it didn't make sense and he's the title character.

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

I assume my affiliate is going to air this tonight and the announcement was just poorly spellchecked. It's possible there's some show called Jeaporday that was supposed to air yesterday but was also preempted.

Re: Tuesday, January 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Something that occurred to me--what's the procedure if a wrongly-ruled-correct response that's not discovered until a few clues later enables a player to get the Daily Double? Do they go back and replay from that point? What do they do about the fact that the DD's location has been revealed? They c...

Re: Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Recognized the Final the second I saw it. When it first aired, after dismissing Joan of Arc as making no sense, I realized who it was, who she'd killed, the fact that she killed him in his bathtub, the painting by David... everything about it except the names of the two people. I forget what I ended...

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( :( Louis Pasteur to not leave it blank. I generally play off the Clue of the Day, so I didn't have the accent to help Tuesday. Still an instaget. Dre(a)d Scot(t) clicked eventually. San(d)ford never would have. All five games were new to me this week.

Re: Tuesday, November 6, 2007 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Frustrating day with names. Couldn't come up with David Lynch, Roman Polanski, or "Cheetah" Rivera (the last would have been something I was surprised to get, but I should have been able to name), and barely came up with Dred Scott before the buzzer (I would have never gotten Sanford). The term I've...

Welp. I knew the clue was pointing at someone's nose, but I had no idea where to go from there. Said Tycho Brahe to have something (I mean, it's not inconceivable they made a play about him...).

Re: Wednesday, December 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In DJ!, found Minced Oaths to be a tough category, and negged with (sticky + variant of 'damnation' + derived from 'eternal' --> tarnation). I've gone back to that one a few times now and am not seeing how to pull 'carnage' out of that. Tarnation is right (and what Brayden said); carnage comes from...

Other than Leviathan, I also wondered if aurochs were ever mentioned in the Bible. Never thought of unicorns as a symbol of strength.
I said aurochs because I was more certain it's not Leviathan. I'm counting it wrong, but reading Wikipedia on re'em, I'm not sure I wouldn't have a case.

No guess (I've seen Holy Grail and I actually knew this fact at some point, but couldn't come up with it), Dantes, Cyprus.

I said "keen" for Smart Answers $200 and counted it right. Any reason I shouldn't?

As for Final, another Cyprus here to close out my worst week in a couple months.

1851 novel = Moby-Dick is pretty close to Jeopardy Pavlov.
I feel like this isn't the first time I failed to make this connection. Novel + revenge led me to Monte Cristo/Dantes.

I think I got Javert largely thanks to TV Tropes. I certainly haven't read the book or seen any adaptations.
I say the L in calm and (usually) salmon.
I've seen Cats.

Re: Friday, November 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

SILENT "L" would have Kellie Pickler disagreeing with one of the responses as she always said the "L" in the fish name. As soon as that category was introduced I knew there would be at least one word where I pronounce the L. There were two (calm, which I can't imagine any other way, and salmon). Po...
