Re: Reretaken Down

/ Between those shows and the WS I'm already behind two hours on This is Us . :( I hate two-hour season premieres and finales of dramas. Since it’s recorded you’re really only 90 minutes behind with commercial skipping. You could just treat it like the producers do and watch it as two one hour episo...

Re: Tuesday, October 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

May have been a broadcast hiccup, but I listened about six times and never heard Brian get the "L" in Tierra del Fuego -- it always sounded like de Fuego. I have to assume the staff heard it better than I did. I could also swear I head Christa say "Ren and Stempy", but it was muffled by the end-of-...

Re: Monday, October 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The clue that had me running to Wikipedia was this one: In 1944 Jane Yorke was Britain's last woman convicted under the act named for this activity of summoning spirits & demons I was having a hard time imagining someone being convicted of being a witch in 1944. Reading about her I found I was corr...

Re: Tuesday, October 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yes, I learned tonight that I never knew why CT was called the Constitution State - but it was the only document in a state nickname I could think of. I sort of remembered that DE was the first state that ratified the US one, but that created only a little trouble in my mind tonight, thankfully.... ...

Re: Monday, October 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Words In Comprehensible for $800: "Term applicable to both a tirade & a speech based on scripture delivered by clergy" I blurted out "polemic" which has the appropriate letters and fits the first part of the clue, but I'm not so sure about the second. I can envision a fire-and-brimstone sermon as a...

“Honky tonk” is not hyphenated in the Stones song title.
For a moment I thought the correct response was "fat bottomed." That's not hyphenated either... :oops:

Re: FJs for the 10/19/20 week

Didn't know William Tell had an Overture (Guessed 1812) I learned of it from a crossword puzzle whose solution contained the Dan Rather quote, "An intellectual snob is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture and not think of The Lone Ranger." And I suspect I previously learned what The ...

I wouldn't have accepted wall for Berlin Wall. I would have accepted butt for part of an article of clothing. I would have said a new nun is a novitiate, and I'm sure that would have been accepted. Just "wall" bothered me too, but he was quoting Reagan... You need to have a talk with your tailor......

IDIOMS $600: A part of the lawn is mentioned in this phrase that refers to the rank & file I said "garden variety." Judges? Both the literal and figurative halves are stretches: a lawn may more be considered a part of a garden than vice versa, and "rank and file" doesn't quite mean the ordinary tha...

Gave myself credit for limelight on Idioms $800 because I'm pretty confident it fits. Judges: limelight on Idioms for $800? 'Fraid not. Limelight lights up the whole stage. The clue specifies a "powerful beam on ONE actor". EDIT: Hang on. This just in. Wikipedia says, "Limelights were employed to h...

So you're saying it's only used in television? Nope, that's not what I'm saying. "Director" referred to movie helming. So you were agreeing, I guess? It was the "Nope" that threw me. I read the "Nope" (not the above-quoted "Nope"; the first "Nope") as being an affirmation of your "I don't think..."...

I remember seeing Guernica a few times at the MoMA. It makes quite an impression. It's massive. It's colorful. It's disturbing.
Colorful?
