Re: Thursday, June 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Last night for FJ I couldn't recall a famous name I learned as a child....Tonight's was about a book I haven't picked up since around the same time. In fact, my strongest memory of it is from the Classic Comics version, which I probably wore out... :geek: But the noggin worked tonight: Not only was ...

Also the player that got Mia Sara in this game has been haunting me for years: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5517 I'm just genuinely baffled how people get these and would love to figure it out. If you’ve seen the movie, it should be easy as she is one of the main three characters....

Poll request on Christopher Guest. It's been haunting me all day that Sandy got that. Also commentary request on how people get the clues about non-superstar supporting actors. He is noteworthy but from the clue it really looks like you needed to know who played Count Rugen in The Princess Bride . ...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

If you work in the news business, I imagine being the host of the Today Show is a dream job that you don't give up. *entertainment? Is Today really "news" or is it more "show that sometimes mentions current events"? (Never seen it, familiar with the format, but it might be an outdated familiarity) ...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I read recently that when Orson Welles was preparing and filming Citizen Kane on the west coast, he flew back to NY every week to do a Sunday night radio play. So a bicoastal career was considered possible even then. Of course he was doing no preparation for the radio gig (even though he was credite...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Savannah says she has a day job so she’s not in the running for the hosting gig. Just saw her on Today (via Twitter) pushing products for Amazon Prime Day. Kind of blows the mind. I figured some of them weren’t really auditioning for a full-time gig, but it is disappointing that she doesn’t even wa...

Re: Monday, June 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Or is this another thing where I need to have seen the right streaming show? Is it a part of the Apple TV+ series about her? I watched all of Dickinson and no Websters appeared. Just Thoreau and Alcott. It would be a mistake to look at Dickinson for historical information. The Crown , with some bac...

Am I insulting YOU for liking the show?
By indulging in an obsessive rant because I said it might be worth another look, it feels like you are. But I'll live.

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

I'm beginning to feel a bit insulted myself. You've made your point. We disagree. Why do you think it's okay though? Because it's a performance that no one takes seriously? In any case I've heard no bleeps and no filth and no posting in all caps on The Chase. I've even said I agree with you about T...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Maybe I should mention at this point that since I've been watching lately I fast forward through some of the preliminaries (it's easy to do), so I may have missed something appalling. But I doubt it... :) It's still plying insults as a valid form of entertainment. It doesn't matter that you get to ...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Have they bleeped words on the show? I doubt it. I detect a sense of humor in most of the repartee I've heard, though I haven't regularly watched earlier versions of the show. Because saying "just kidding" after a filthy insult makes it right? Calm down, tiger...Nobody's asking you to go on the sho...

I knew Roget was not American and that was the only other work I would have considered. My first thought was Emerson, who was a family friend - or at least they had him to the house - but of course he has no reference book associated with him... Notable that Dickinson refers to the book only as her ...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

The tone and spirit are not at all close to The Weakest Link. For one thing the contestants have ample opportunity to fight back. So it's okay to call someone a [bleep] if you can call them a [bleep] right back? Have they bleeped words on the show? I doubt it. I detect a sense of humor in most of t...

What joy is there in a show that hinges entirely on insults and trash talk? Are we watching the same show?
