+1 Laissez-Faire, felt great about it until the reveal.
My response too, and I still feel great about it! The clue sucked.

Maybe today's liquor category inspired it, but I propose a drinking game for Savannah's tenure: "You Got It!" 🍸

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

I thought she did an excellent job. . . The only thing that was at all offputting was her reminding us repeatedly that she’s a PhD neuroscientist. They may have advised her to do that since many viewers might only remember her dancing the Running Man in floppy hats back in the day: https://youtu.be...

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

Mayim was the guest hostess I was anticipating the mostess, and she overdelivered. I personally don't fault her for a giddiness born of absolute joy. It's fresh, it's fun, it's genuine. The interjections and tidbits lend her a loose cannon quality, but in a welcome way. She can always dial back that...

I blame this entirely on the mention of Ernest P. Worrell in one of bonus clues.

Was Julia the most awful contestant! Has she never seen the show before? Where did she get the idea that we she was supposed to interject after every answer and comment on her own Answers by saying "nice" or something equally banal? We viewers need to demand that they screen out people like that. h...

Did Mayim have some happy juice before the game? She seemed a little too giddy and amused by too many of the clues today.
That's my girl. She's likely to become even more quirky and wacky as she gets more comfortable, so buckle up, everybody.

Re: How Did Buzzy Cohen Do as Host?

https://youtu.be/4xgx4k83zzc Buzzy possesses an enthusiastic, camera-ready persona, loads of "quizmaster" cred, and a name that seems pre-destined for any game show pantheon. He handled the emcee aspect of the job extremely well, and also delivered a spirit of hospitality that other hosts seemed to ...

Re: Friday, May 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Buzzy had a shot to try out his accents with the Bogey clue, but he passed. Shame. That's the first time in the guest host era that I've explicitly wished for Alex's clue delivery. Have any of the guest hosts dropped a "No harm, no foul" yet? My instincts tell me, no, as I think I would have archiv...

Re: The 2021 Tournament of Champions Is Happening Next Month

Potentially unpopular opinion, but I think that's probably for the best. We've pretty much seen the best of the Trebek era already, and we've seen them compete in these kinds of tournaments several times at this point. And the most recent special tournament from the Trebek era (the All-Star Games),...

Poll request: I got the first guy but not the second guy, and/or variants I had Penn and Calvert. I did consider Baltimore but I figured out what they wanted very late and scribbled Calvert so quickly it was illegible. I said Calvert too. My understanding is that Calvert is the family name, Baltimo...
