Seriously, how many famous people have died from twenty-three stab wounds?

Re: Thursday, June 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Even though I understand the movie is 28 years ago or so and the players are youngish enough for it to not to be in their sweet spot, it still pained my 1908s heart that no one knew the actor who played Spicoli. :roll: The hilarious pop culture crime was the guesses for the show with "Nanu nanu".

Re: Wednesday, May 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Will seemed to draw a favorable matchup and took advantage of it to cruise to a locked spot next week. The WCs seem to be heading high with 18-16-16-14 and two games to go. This could be a tourney where a correct FJ! response but holding something back proves to be costly. Yep, Sam's conservative w...

A family's last name in the title of an adventure novel? Hmm, now what could that be?

Sad thing is, those commercials might be on tv for years to come, constant reminders to Sarah and Kevin of their bitter defeat. Why, even "Snakes on a Plane" might become unwatchable!

I used to watch L&O:Criminal Intent, but I'll be damned if I remember an "Ira Whipple" character. He must've not gotten a lot of screen time.

Heck, I’m atheist, but count me in among those who don’t see the issue with Bible clues. No different than sports clues - sports and religion are part of our cultural milieu and it doesn’t matter if I dislike them, they’re fair game. EDIT TO ADD: Look, I know that this is my personal Don Quixote's ...

I don't think I would've celebrated quite that much for winning $399 more than the second place player, but hey, maybe she'll do better in the next episode. Somebody has to!

This game will be very frustrating for those who have taken & passed the test many times without an audition or THE CALL in wishing this was their day to be on stage. Perhaps my proudest moment was the $2K in LT for knowing the name of the railroad early in the DJ round. When I was a lad my father ...

Don't know how often this happens to others, but my local station aired five minutes of commericals (during which they must've been scrambling to find an old episode to air), and then broadcast the one where Sue Grafton was the the subject of the FJ. I wuz robbed! Hmmmmm. That's the episode that wa...

I had "Allende" but couldn't pull the first name in time. Judges? Do I need a first name to distinguish her from her father, even though he wasn't a writer? I can’t see why, since the category was Women Authors. For poll purposes certainly check the box for Isabel, Isobel, Isabelle, etc. as long as...

Bad FJ wager by Paul, but it didn't matter. I remember that comic book term first being widely used in the late 70's to describe Will Eisner's A Contract With God, didn't realize it dated back to 1964.

Louisiana didn't make it into the union until the 1800's, so it was easy to dismiss New Orleans. There weren't very many reasonable alternatives to the correct answer.

So you jump through all the hoops you have to in order to get on this show, accrue a nice sum in your previous appearances and you've got a runaway so you can't lose, and you bet zero dollars in FJ? Zero? I’ll ask you the same thing I asked you not once but twice that you failed to answer back in t...
