Re: Tuesday, December 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So they've decided England is a nation, all by itself? I know there's some wiggle room on calling it a country, but nation? It is certainly a nation, just as Palestine and Kurdistan are nations. na·tion (nā′shən) 3. A people who share common customs, origins, history, and frequently language; a nat...

Re: Monday, November 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Fleabag was quite popular a year or two ago. I forget what service/network it was on, but I don't think I got it. Even so, I had heard of it. It's on Amazon now, free with Prime. I think that's where it's always been, but I'm not sure. I do remember a year or two ago when it seemed like I was getti...

Science fiction author and editor Ben Bova, at age 88. https://www.tor.com/2020/11/30/legendary-science-fiction-author-ben-bova-has-passed-at-the-age-of-88/ Had no idea the old boy was still alive.

Loved Alex's opening. Reminds me of that insurance commercial with the "avoiding becoming your parents" guy...BLUE HAIR! I was impressed with TJ getting the Hoover clue right, as I had no clue - was there a TOM other than "Hoover worked in the Harding administration"? "Albert Fall was crooked in th...

Philliesfan02: Funnier than The Naked Gun ? I'm not Philliesfan02 (unless I'm leading a double life that even I don't know about) but here's my answer. The Naked Gun seems like it had a lot of funny moments based on how it gets quoted and YouTube excerpted. But I didn't see it when I had the chance...

But no. I thought of the Pink Panther and started humming along with the think music because I was sure I had it. Same here. Worst. Miss. Ever. But at least I see I have a fair amount of company. Yeah, I assume this will be a poll question. It'll be interesting to see how large that company is.

Re: Monday, November 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's been a while since a correct response required 2 lines of my notebook. An awful lot to write if you don't think of it right off, so I'm happy I did... :) Yeah, with a little rewording the clue could've requested the title object rather than the whole movie title. It would've been sad to see th...

Re: Reretaken Down

Those suddenly popped up in my YT feed. They even have them organized by season. I watched a couple and they got repetitive in a hurry. I can’t imagine watching hours of Alex telling people they can’t play FJ, but whatever floats your boat. One of these days if we can ever find more full episodes o...

Re: Monday, November 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Put me down as another one who guessed The Pink Panther. Go ahead. I deserve it. If I'd thought about it, I'd have realized three things: 1. The movie that came out in '75 was The Return of the Pink Panther. 2. If that's the movie they were going for, they'd have asked for the title object, not the ...

Unsurprisingly, no takers on Fetlock. This is what I get when my AlpacaFarm quizzes aren't very popular.

I got fetlock, but I'm not a llama. I learned it from Miller's Crossing and never forgot it.

Re: FJs for the 11/23/20 week

Thought about Nambia, but it is neither far enough down the alphabet, landlocked, has a coastline, or exists. Also, they'd never ask about Nambia in FJ because it looks too much like an infamous acronym. Perhaps they never ask about it because there's a sizable risk of having to neg someone for eli...

Not sure why you jumped onto character names, but the only Oscar to win an Oscar is actually a pretty cromulent trivia question.
