Re: The GREATEST OF ALL TIME FJs for the 1/13/20 week

Got both the FJs (Arcadia seemed fairly obvious, Iago an educated guess, but I might have gone with Brutus if I'd thought of him first), but I'm surprised to realize I didn't get any of the others. The only one that I feel I should have gotten was Lawrence Welk, but I said Guy Lombardo instead...

Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've been thinking there's been a conspicuous lack of geography FJs this season, so of course they give us 2 in one week... :twisted: It didn't help that I somehow read it as "South America" for the first few seconds... :roll:

No idea for FJ. Said The Phantom Tollbooth just to say something.
That's a really good guess.
There's not a whiff of quantum theory in The Phantom Tollbooth...Milo wouldn't have been able to follow it. He's no Meg or Charles Wallace... :)

Judges: My response to Let's Get Married for $1000 was "What is leaving the church down the aisle?" The clue didn't ask for the specific word and that is essentially what the recessional is.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Surprised that James missed that last FJ. I guess he was thinking that since Hamlet is the longest play, it must have the most supporting speeches. It looks like James was right that Horatio has the most speeches after Hamlet. I would have thought it was Claudius, myself...he has almost, but not qui...

I think they made an error on the question about the technology that was unveiled at comdex in 1999. TiVo is a brand of DVR and was introduced in 1999 so it should have been acceptable. That means the future doc wouldn't have been penalized and Veronica wouldn't have gained. I'm not sure it would h...

I'd check the box saying I got this from the French composer angle rather than the funeral practice angle. I've hea...

hulu

if you don't want hulu, sign up for a 7-day trial, then cancel
But maybe wait a couple days before signing up for the trial so you can get next week's games in too!
I joined with a 30-day trial.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What a fun match to watch, and I approve of the outcome! Wasn't that first FJ a clear YKIOYD? Was anybody actually helped by the category or the invocation of Calvin Coolidge? I almost felt sympathy with those who complain the show shouldn't have religious content, though it was as ridiculously easy...

Does anyone happen to know where January 7th goat can be viewed online? I happened to miss it.
Not surprisingly, on abc.com...and I would assume any place else ABC programs are streamed.

Re: Monday, January 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Catch-22 was my immediate precall, but I could have sworn that Catch-22 had been an FJ within the last few months...(no, apparently it was last used in 2012). So I was very surprised when I had to do no further thinking when the clue came up!

Re: J! in the Media

And now for something completely different. This is an episode of the CBS sitcom The 5 Mrs. Buchanans, from 1995. The relevant part comes in the first 3 minutes, but then the plot takes a hard turn, and never gets back to that set up! Or at least I assume it didn't, I couldn't watch the rest of it....

Re: J! in the Media

So we watched the ABC show / promotion for net week tonight. I was surprised to see Michael Strahan doing a non-sports program. I thought his narration was excellent, and he handled the interviews pretty well, but a little thin in substance. Michael is on Good Morning America, GMA3 in the afternoon...
