I've seen about five minutes of the first ep. of The Handmaid's Tale, but J! clues, award shows, EW, TV Guide, etc. are enough to pick up little things like the "Of" names ....
Even this very board!

I don't think Donesh should've been negged as the two different measurements implied uneven in the clue. :| I was expecting a BMS instead of an outright neg; I've often heard TV gymnastics commentators refer to them as the "uneven parallel bars". The parallel bars are a distinct event of their own;...

My pick was I'm okay if he becomes the new host (#2) but I would still like to see as many guest hosts as possible. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and there are plenty of episodes to fill so let them go nuts with "What if?"

I'm not entirely sure that watching The Crown was helpful. I've watched every episode. (It's a decent history primer, but can't be taken entirely at face value - there's a fair amount of literary license in it, but major events are based on actual history.) I knew JFK was wrong because they made a ...

The writers, in the last few years, have often used definitions that are a different part of speech from the word being defined. It's really sloppy.

Ken's reading of the clues did not seem as fast today so I expect that he received pointers after yesterday's game. 61 clues again and today was a perfectly acceptable episode of how the show can continue for many years.

Good job on Brooke for properly pronouncing the word 'gif'.
Huh. I could have sworn she pronounced it with a 'j' sound, not like the 'g' in 'graphic'.
Should we have been pronouncing SCUBA with an 'uh' in the middle this whole time, too?

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

I think the sped-up reading was probably done in post-episode editing. I wonder if the new policy is to get all 60 clues done. Maybe Alex had resisted speeding up his reading or didn't want it to be sped up during the editing phase. I'm a bit puzzled about folks being distracted by KJ's "higher pit...
